My name is Art Braden and I started PerformanceSkin as a place to share my personal experience with dealing with my scars.
I live in NYC and I had severe acne scars since my teen years. This made me feel ugly and I did not have confidence in myself and especially when it came to dating girls.
When I was 19 I had a car accident which left a bad deep scar on my left cheek which did not make my situation easier. This is when I began my journey to find the best cream to remove my scars or at least reduce them.
I started reading on the internet, tried different home remedies and different creams… but nothing had the desired effect. Then I decided to consult with professional dermatologists like Darrick Antell, M.D., Norman Rowe, M.D. and Roy Geronemus, M.D.
Dr. Antell’s philosophy is that plastic surgery should whisper, not scream.
Top Plastic Surgeon Darrick AntellDr. Antell is a board certified plastic surgeon specializing in cosmetic rejuvenation of the face, breasts, and body.
With a practice that spans over 20 years, and clientele from all over the world, Dr. Antell is known in the industry for his work on news anchors, celebrities, and other notable personalities. His philosophy “plastic surgery should whisper, not scream” is a testament to his approach and encourages natural esthetic results.

Dr Rowe specializes in breast procedures, rhinoplasty procedures, and revision procedures. His extensive experience can help patients who desire any type of face, breast, body, or skin treatments.
Roy G. Geronemus, M.D., Director of the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York, graduated from Harvard University and pursued his medical education at the University of Miami School of Medicine.
He trained in dermatology at the New York University Medical Center where he was the chief resident and subsequently underwent a fellowship training in Mohs Micrographic Surgery and Cutaneous Oncology. He is a Clinical Professor of Dermatology at New York University Medical Center where he founded its laser program and served nine years as chief of dermatologic and laser surgery.
After getting consulted by those trusted dermatologists and reading numerous clinical trials I started experimenting on my scars with the latest medical grade silicon scar creams and onion extract based creams.
This is when I decided to start PerformanceSkin in 2013 to help other people who suffer from different types of scars to treat them better and share their own experience.
For the time it has been online it became one of the most visited sites for people looking for information on how to remove or reduce their scars and I receive every day emails from people who share their experience of what worked and what did not work on their types of scars.
I gather the data and compare it with the most recent clinical trials and studies on ingredients that work well with healing scars and I publish it on the website.
