Dr. Michael Goldenhersh was educated and trained at Yale. He speaks English and Hebrew, and is board certified in both the US and Israel. Dr. Goldenhersh has lived in Jerusalem with his family since making aliyah in 1985. He is married to Batsheva who works with him in the medical center. He has been a dermatologist in Jerusalem for over 25 years.
His interest in laser/ IPL treatments of skin began more than a decade ago. He returned to his alma mater, Yale University, for a private tutorial in laser treatment of the skin. Dr. Goldenhersh is director of the first laser center in Israel to use a Palomar light device. Building on his quarter of a century research experience in light and skin and what he learned from giants in the laser field, Dr. Goldenhersh has evolved his own unique approach to laser/ IPL treatments called MSP- Maximal Safe Power. This method is especially fitting for mideastern skin types.
Dr. Goldenhersh began his training in dermatology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital in New York City where he also did a fellowship in basic science research of skin. He completed his training in clinical dermatology at Yale University. He subsequently was selected to be a fellow in skin pathology at Yale and became “double boarded”. He is board certified in Dermatology in the United States and in Israel. He is also board certified in Dermatopathology (skin pathology) in the United States and his specialization in Dermatopathology was granted special recognition by the Israeli Ministry of Health. Dr. Goldenhersh’s research interest in light and skin began twenty five years ago andВ continues until today. He received his first U.S. patent on a new method of blocking ultraviolet light in 1989. He has investigated the relationship between total dose and dose rate on skin with ultraviolet light and visible light and has lectured on this subject.
