Dr. Loretta Ciraldo, M.D., F.A.A.D., is a highly sought-after board certified dermatologist with over 40 years of experience.
She is an avid clinical researcher, published author, and regular on-camera expert. Dr. Loretta’s research experience started in 1975 in the Dermatology Department of Harvard Medical School, where she performed early testing on the effects of UVA on human skin and contributed to the development of the Fitzpatrick Skin Type Classification. She received her M.D. from Downstate Medical College of State University of New York and completed her dermatology residency at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, NY, where she was selected as Chief Resident.
Performing tens of thousands of total body exams during the course of her career, she has been struck by the remarkable differences seen in exposed skin on our faces, neck, chest and hands compared to unexposed skin, on our torso and other areas covered by clothing. Dr. Loretta has determined that to achieve our most youthful and healthy appearance we must keep “skin unexposed” to four factors she determined contribute to unwanted aging changes. These factors are pollution, light, climate and irritants.
From her discovery, she founded the Dr. Loretta line of anti-aging skin care products, formulated with high concentrations of advanced medical-grade actives, combined with blends of the most beneficial essential oils and botanical and marine ingredients to ensure that skin remains unexposed to harmful external influences.
She is most proud of her family, including her husband Dr. Robert Ciraldo and their four amazing children, Gina, Daniel, Katrina and Liza and their wonderful grandchildren, Siena Loretta and Luca Daniel, for whom Dr. Loretta is determined to remain youthful and looking her freshest well into her eighties and beyond.
