Beauty is serious business at Allure Plastic Surgery Center, and the company's four plastic surgeons have been trained accordingly. Dr. Elliot Heller co-founded the American Academy of Aesthetic and Restorative Surgery, and his colleagues boast board certifications and advanced training in specialties such as reconstructive surgery, microsurgery, and nonsurgical body-contouring alternatives. These physicians focus on keeping their visitors comfortable as they usher them through the surgical suite or into the office for outpatient procedures such as injecting Botox, exfoliating with microdermabrasion, performing laser hair-removal, or simply supplying ultra-flattering mirrors.
The path that led Dr. Marc L. Epstein to specialize in injectable neuroinhibitors and volumizers has been anything but expected. After more than 20 years as a board-certified interventional radiologist, Dr. Epstein retired to work on his golf game in Colorado. He then discovered a passion for acting and moved with his family to New York in order to perform on the stage and in independent films, eventually becoming a Broadway producer. The performing arts, however, didn’t prove to be his true calling. The artistically inclined doctor traded drama’s symbolic masks of comedy and tragedy for an opportunity to transform real-life frowns into smiles at his aesthetics practice.
Dr. Epstein now uses his creative energy and exacting eye for detail to create more youthful visages. He tackles signs of aging with muscle-calming cosmetic injections and treats wrinkles on the mid- and lower face with four types of dermal fillers. He also employs the innovative Ultherapy ultrasound treatment to address skin laxity caused by time, gravity, or grandmotherly cheek pinching that has continued into adulthood.
When Dr. Ritu Saini took the reins of NY Medical Skin Solutions from her mentor?Dr. Perry Robins?she never doubted the decision to remain true to the center?s original vision. The board-certified dermatologist and her team value the health of their patients? skin above all else. As a result, they take care to educate every visitor as they scan for signs of skin cancer, remove worrisome lesions using the innovative MOHs micrographic surgical procedure, and even treat conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Dr. Saini also incorporated a medispa, and our spa special, Triple Radiance Facials.
For a well-rounded approach to patients? well-being, Dr. Saini and her assistants also perform a number of cosmetic procedures, which incorporate cutting-edge dermatological technology. A Q-switched ruby cosmetic laser system helps erase everything from pigmented lesions to unwanted tattoos. Omnilux blue and red light therapy treats acne scars. The Vbeam Perfecta laser conceals broken blood vessels, port wine stains, and other vascular conditions. And A CoolGlide Vantage Nd:YAG laser system zaps the follicles of unwanted stubble across the torso, limbs, and face. For a thoroughly rejuvenating treatment, the center also uses Ultherapy technology, triggering collagen production with precisely directed ultrasound waves. When combined with medical screenings, these sorts of cosmetic procedures can imbue patients with a renewed sense of confidence in their appearance as well as their health.
Dr. Michelle Copeland, a Harvard-schooled plastic surgeon, brings more than 20 years of surgical experience to her Manhattan practice and a passion for healthy complexions to her self-titled skincare line. In her office located across the street from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Dr. Copeland nips, tucks, and augments, and also zaps wrinkles, fat, veins, and body hair with noninvasive laser treatments. Dermal fillers plump and firm laugh crevasses and frown valleys, as microdermabrasion and therapeutic facials leave skin as youthful and glowing as a baby lightning bug.
Dr. Copeland originally developed her namesake skincare line to treat her patients’ need, but with such successful results, she now peddles her healing serums and salves to the public. From mild, nonfoaming cleansers to exfoliating alpha-hydroxyl creams, these regimens help fight the signs of aging and quench thirsty pores. An August 2011 Lucky magazine giveaway featured 1-ounce pots of Emerge facelift cream, each round jar chock-full of lavender aroma, antioxidant compounds, and collagen-boosting elves.
Dr. Victoria Karlinsky looks for ways to restore patients' self-confidence through cosmetic surgery. After training alongside expert bariatric surgeons, Dr. Karlinsky learned the art of weight-loss surgeries and lifts. Dr. Karlinsky's attention to detail extends to her face-lift, eyelid, ear, and lip surgeries, and also accounts for her winning streak in pickup games of Simon Says. Each procedure takes place after patients explain their beauty goals in a one-on-one consultation and Dr. Karlinsky maps out a viable route to achieve them. Dr. Karlinsky brandishes board certifications in both general and cosmetic surgery and can communicate to clients in English, Russian, or scalpel charades.
At Advanced Dermatology Center for Laser and Cosmetic Surgery, a team of dermatologists featured in magazines such as Glamour and Men's Fitness oversee an array of treatments. Together, they alleviate skin conditions, such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema. Alternatively, they beautify skin with lasers, tightening sagging areas or removing unwanted hair. Their cosmetic surgeries, meanwhile, tweak physiques while maintaining a natural look.
