Like most college graduates, Dr. Jolly stood at a fork in the road at the beginning of his career. On one side, his path pointed toward a future in the arts—he was an accomplished sculptor who had just been accepted into the School of Visual Arts in New York City—and the other side pointed toward a science career that would tap into his undergraduate degree in biology. But as fate had it, Dr. Jolly found a way to incorporate his love of both science and art—by attending the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, where he went on to graduate as a board-certified dentist.
Now, Dr. Jolly and his dedicated team of dental hygienists and assistants turn their passion into action, helping keep their clients' mouths in tiptop shape. From routine checkups to dermal-filler injections, Dr. Jolly keeps his office up-to-date on the latest techniques and equipment, and since he never double-books appointments, he has time to thoroughly explain and guide patients through their procedures. He's dedicated to building strong relationships with clients and making them feel like family, which is why he gives each person a sack of hand-me-down clothes after his or her visit.
Board certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Joseph Racanelli forges fresh faces and beautiful bodies with the latest technology. Like resurfacing cracks and crevasses in a majestic marble statue, Botox injections smooth foreheads, eliminate crow's feet, and remove nests of invading pigeons to make faces ready for display. Sessions take around 30–60 minutes and results typically appear after about two weeks. Call for an appointment.
There are plenty of reasons to arrive early at Glam Spa. Prior to appointments, clients can take tours, sip beverages, or relax during a mini-spa treatment—all while enjoying soothing aromas and the sounds of soft instrumental music. Then it's on to private rooms, where the spa team administers brow waxes, blueberry peels, medical-grade microdermabrasion treatments, lemon-drop body polishes, and acupressure massages.
Since opening his own medical practice in 1986, Dr. Joseph S. Cervone has seen it all, from minor blemishes to serious skincare concerns. But what surprised the doctor most was the confidence and increased self-esteem his patients presented after he performed a cosmetic procedure for them.
This unexpected discovery led Dr. Cervone to begin slowly incorporating more nonsurgical procedures into his practice, with the goal of helping his clients feel even more satisfied and secure about their appearances. Eventually, he become the medical director of Concierge Skin Care, and since then Dr. Cervone and his friendly staff have helped restore youthful complexions with a range of aesthetic treatments ranging from microdermabrasion to laser hair removal and Botox injections.
The office can also help patients achieve more dramatic results with advanced procedures involving the latest ultrasound technology from VASER Shape, the skin-tightening powers of a Titan or Genesis laser, or spider-vein removal.
After her residency at Columbia University, Dr. Marion Shapiro earned her certificate from France's French Society of Mesotherapy. Since opening her own clinic in 2002, Dr. Shapiro has been profiled in Self, Elle, and Marie Claire magazines, as well as on TV news programs. Like the wheel, mesotherapy was invented in 1952. It refers to the practice of tackling a host of cosmetic symptoms—including excess fat or cellulite, hair loss, scars, and wrinkle—with specialized medical injections. In addition to mesotherapy face-lifts, Dr. Shapiro and her staff can also make mugs look younger with peels, fillers, and laser therapy. Body contouring, diet programs, and laser hair-removal procedures are available to match bodies to their freshly refreshed faces.
