Thomas A Law, MD, has made a name for himself with his steady, precise hands. The honorably discharged major in the US Army Medical Corps and former piano player entered the Army Reserve in 1980 and later went on to become a flight surgeon and an emergency-room physician with the Army. He even earned the expert-marksman award at the pistol range on his first attempt. Now, Dr. Law uses his nimble fingers to transplant hair.
He has developed an international reputation for his meticulous and creative approach to hair transplantation. Using either one of two methods depending on the client's needs. Dr. Law can harvest individual follicles with the follicular-unit-extraction technique or surgically remove and divide thin strips of hair with the follicular-unit-transplantation process. Both methods take advantage of a horseshoe-shaped donor area at the back of the head where an abundance of "lifelong" hair follicles are typically found. Much like a BFF necklace from his best friend, these follicles are always there on virtually every man.
A graduate of the halls of health science at the Swedish Institute in Manhattan, licensed massage therapist Michelle Larson wanted to find an effective alternative to Botox for people who wanted to reverse the signs of aging in a completely natural way. She combined her mastery in re-educating muscles with noninvasive technology to create The Natural Face Lift, which lifts features through facial and neck massages paired with mild microcurrents that stimulate the skin more than those documentaries you keep making it watch.
Before moving to the United States, Dr. John Mwando studied at the University of Nairobi in Kenya, where he earned his doctor of medicine degree with a concentration in infectious disease. Once stateside, he continued his studies, graduating with honors from the New York College of Podiatric Medicine before engaging in a three-year residency. Now, as an attending physician at three institutions, he devotes his time to performing foot and ankle surgery and other procedures that produce happy feet. Certified by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery, he reduces bunions and evicts nail fungi, readying feet to appear in sandals when it gets hot outside or appear in court when it gets hot in the jury box.
Laser Touch Aesthetics' team of licensed laser technicians overhauls dulled complexions and flawed skin with a roster of laser treatments and dermal fillers. Using FDA-approved Candela, Cynosure, and Cutera lasers, they aim to reduce the appearance of acne, wrinkles, and sunspots, and strive to do the same to dimples and lines caused by cellulite. During laser treatments, skin surfaces are kept at a comfortable temperature thanks to patented cooling devices.
When they're not aiming state-of-the-art laser beams at unwanted hair or moles, staffers smooth out wrinkles caused by stress or using a porcupine as a pillow with Botox, Dysport, and Juvederm treatments. Before each appointment, laser practitioners perform test spots and assess skin and hair, so they can safely customize each treatment to their client’s specifications.
Rather than let tattoos naturally fade over time, NYC Tattoo Removal Spa's lasers swiftly break down ink so the body can absorb it. They keep chipping away at the tattoo every seven weeks, which allows the body to absorb more and more fragments of the tattoo until it has disappeared. Along with tattoo removal, the spa's aestheticians enrich skin with services such as waxing, facials, and chemical peels.
At Skin Care and Laser Center, the aesthetic team mixes together European training and advanced technology to combat signs of aging. They target acne and sun damage with the laser and intense pulsed light of the MediLux system. Other laser systems, such as Candela's GentleYag laser, tighten skin and remove unwanted body hair with a variety of treatment-spot sizes for faster sessions. During each session, the GentleYag's patented dynamic cooling device and softly crooned Vanilla Ice lyrics minimize discomfort.
At Spa Jolie, aestheticians, massage therapists, and laser technicians cull techniques from a variety of cultures to beautify their clients. Reflexology, a 4,000-year-old Chinese method of applying pressure to specific points in the hands and feet, joins traditional Swedish and deep-tissue modalities to soothe weary physiques. Fresh, European seaweed makes up one of the layers in the four-layer facial to help tone and tighten the skin. When performing the ancient Indian technique of threading, technicians capture unwanted facial hair between twists of cotton fibers. These culturally diverse practices appear alongside a roster of lasers, made from all-natural, locally harvested machine parts, which help reduce cellulite and even whiten teeth.
