A world-renowned surgeon specializing in skin cancer prevention, removal and plastic surgery, Dr. Justin Piasecki is always at the forefront of innovation.
Dr. Piasecki pioneered the most advanced skin cancer treatment that exists today by combining the leading skin cancer removal technique (Mohs surgery) with cosmetic reconstructive surgery. He is the only doctor in the world that is double board certified to hold and perform such procedures. Piasecki MD's proprietary product formulations are the result of Dr. Piasecki's impressive skin and surgical experience, and all product lines aim to help prevent skin cancer development while creating a radiant and youthful appearance.
His extensive training from Stanford University and Vanderbilt Medical School (impressively in biology, organic chemistry and physiology), along with years of hard work, set Dr. Piasecki up for mastery as a physician and surgeon. Piasecki MD products were a natural progression for him to help advance the skincare industry.
What started as a personal project to benefit friend and family, along with his wife Jill, the couple unveiled the first generation of Piasecki MD products. The history behind their process is both inspiring and interesting. Read the history behind these products.
Dr. Piasecki has been featured on national television shows, Dr. Oz, The Doctors and Hallmark’s Home and Family, as well as in numerous print and on-line publications including USA Today and Oprah.com. He was voted one of“The Most Beautiful Doctors in America”. See Dr. Piasecki live in video here.
An avid athlete and outdoors man, Dr. Piasecki believes that looking good starts with feeling good and doing the best you can by your body and health. At Stanford University, Dr. Piasecki competed on the swim team enduring rigorous training sessions designed for elite athletes. After graduation, he joined the US National Sprint Kayaking Team where he reached #4 in the world, winning gold medals at the Pan American Games, World Cup and the US National Championships. Today, he maintains his competitive spirit and healthy lifestyle by running to work, lifting weights, kayaking and spending time with his family outdoors in his hometown of Gig Harbor, Washington.
A life changing, traumatic accident left Dr. & Mrs. Piasecki compelled to promote health & wellness through accessible medical grade skin care and skin cancer prevention for all.
The History: Aiming to make a difference - skincare science with integrity is at the foundation of all Piasecki MD products.
What started as a personal project to benefit friends and family, Dr. Piasecki began developing skincare products in his kitchen with his wife Jill as his tester.
Through decades of his successful medical practice he had been exposed to patients who unknowingly could have prevented skin cancer and premature aging of the skin, if simply armed with the correct knowledge and product.
He aimed to create products to protect those he loved from the sun’s harmful rays and environmental aggressors, while offering the essentials in skincare. The result was the creation of Piasecki MD - the latest skincare science in straightforward, easy-to-use products for beautiful, safe, healthy-looking skin.
Dr. Piasecki began by exploring four scientifically proven methods of improving the health and appearance of skin:
- Proper facial cleansing – efficacious ingredients and gentle cleansing techniques without harmful soaps
- Benefits of Retin-A – increased cell turnover, minimized wrinkles, clarified skin
- Hyperpigmentation – to correct and prevent the darkening of skin surfaces due to increased melanin
- SPF – the ultimate sun defense in broad spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays
Equipped with extensive knowledge in these areas, he then looked to improve the delivery mechanisms of each and create formulas that were effective and no-nonsense.
As the products started to take shape, Dr. Piasecki was in a tragic accident – the kind that takes your breath away and brings you back a changed person with a renewed outlook on life.
The day after school was let out for summer break, Dr. Piasecki was playing in his barn with his wife and three daughters. The kids were up in a hayloft, and Dr. Piasecki climbed a rope to greet them. At the top, as he was starting to let himself down, his foot got stuck and he fell 20 feet, landing directly on his head on the concrete below. After a frightful ambulance ride and a traumatic respite from daily activity, Dr. Piasecki made a miraculous recovery and returned to practicing medicine.
Without physical scars, he walked away a changed man inside. His focus turned outward as he looked for ways to improve the world around him.
In 2013, he and his wife, Jill, decided to launch Piasecki MD with the goal of selling unique products at an affordable price. Proceeds from the sale of products will be donated to support charities and organizations that promote health, wellness and the education of children.
