In addition to being a member of the Botox Cosmetic Physicians Network, Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg has been featured in many forms of media, hosts his own cosmetic-surgery radio show, and won Long Island Press' Best of Long Island 2010 Cosmetic Surgeon award. Dr. Greenberg performs a consultation with each patient before using his highly specific training to administer tiny, muscle-relaxing injections into wrinkle-causing areas while singing a lullaby in a rich baritone. The appointment lasts from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the injection site. Botox treatments smooth moderate wrinkles and prevent further depth in wrinkling, leaving skin as sleek as a bobsled track doused in canola oil. Improvement may be observed within a few days, and results can last up to four months. Discomfort from the Botox treatment is minimal; the sensation could be likened to a pinprick or a momentary flashback to one's haircut in the '80s.
It is a love of beautiful things and a passion for bringing out the beauty in people that drives Karen Goldberg's work at her medi-spa, ClassiGal. With more than three decades of experience in the healthcare field, this registered nurse uses her medical knowledge to fight off the signs of aging with beauty injections and dermal fillers. In her skillful hands, these products can be used to get facelift-like results without going under the knife or confronting fears of paper gowns.
Backed by nearly three decades of practice in the local community, board-certified physician Michael Michell helms Somers Cosmetic & Laser Center's team of aestheticians and cosmetic specialists. Dr. Mitchell?s crew performs a comprehensive arsenal of medically inspired aesthetic services, including spider-vein treatments and laser hair removal. The doctor himself administers beauty injections such as Botox and Juv?derm and summons his extensive medical know-how to develop powerful facials that erase blemishes, flush dirt from pores, and wipe cheeks clean of Mom?s embarrassing lipstick marks.
Drs. Richard and Marina Buckley specialize in enhancing their patients? looks with modern medical treatments. Like sculptors, they whittle away areas of excess and etch definition into untoned topography with laser liposuction. They can also transfer fat deposits to plump up thin faces and hands or add volume to busts or bottoms. Their facial rejuvenation services include chemical peels and laser resurfacing treatments, which are as effective and less painful than belly-flopping into the Fountain of Youth.
Erica Breining founded Bellava MedAesthetics & Spa as a place where people could find medical-grade solutions to common skincare problems. Staffed by a team of physicians and aestheticians, her center offers everything from surgical procedures to customized facial treatments, helping combat the creases and blemishes that accompany aging skin. Although turning back time isn't an option, improving the skin's tone and texture can boost clients' confidence while restoring their naturally youthful radiance.
