Drawing on more than 3,800 procedures, Dr. Dean DeRoberts administers facial and bodily refinements with a keen eye and steady hand. His feature-enhancing procedures includes forehead lifts, nose surgery, tummy tucks, and liposuction treatments as well as less invasive treatments such as facials, Botox injections, and laser hair removal.
Inside AAAHC–accredited Syracuse Facial Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery Center, board-certified Dr. Halliday windshield-wipes life's debris from weathered faces and bodies with surgical and chemical treatments. During the mini microdermabrasion facial, a licensed aesthetician begins by choosing medical-grade SkinMedica products based on individual skin type. Exfoliating crystals then slough off dead skin cells while reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and skin crinkles. Next, countenances spend 30 minutes reversing the effects of time, sun damage, and James Cagney impersonations with a peel that patients generally tolerate well and that require minimal recovery time. Dr. Halliday also frees hostage skin from tense facial muscles with Botox injections to soften forehead wrinkles, glabellar “11s” between eyes, smile lines, or horizontal “bunny” lines across the nose. The 25 units can also lift fallen brows to give eyes more of a youthful appearance or antiquated Gothic arch. Like washing your hair in a vat of chewed bubble gum, treatment takes only about 15 minutes but yields results that may last three–five months on average.
Piloted by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Potenza, Aesthetic Plastic Surgery provides a variety of beauty-enhancing services in a medically sound environment. Licensed medical aesthetician Shannon Martin zaps the wayward blood vessels known as spider veins with her Venus-imported Cutera laser, using light-generated heat to kill off offending veins by coagulating the blood within them. Deceased vessels are subsequently reabsorbed into the body, fading away like Mozart’s one-hit-wonder career over a period of four to six weeks. The cosmetic treatment is safe on all skin types, returning epidermises to their porcelain-scented factory settings.
The surgeons at New York Group for Plastic Surgery use their skills in cosmetic and reconstructive medicine to help their patients restore their appearances after illnesses or injuries and look better in bathing suits or driver's-license photos. Common procedures include face-lifts and nose jobs, as well as tummy tucks and breast augmentation. They also supervise an array of noninvasive treatments, such as Ultherapy, beauty injections, and facials, in their medical spa.
Goel Family Dentistry cleans mouths and brightens teeth with an array of general and cosmetic dental services. After a consultation to determine the patient's current needs, Dr. Goel and his team harness the chomper-illuminating brawn of Venus White Max. With happy teeth-owners comfortably reclined, the whitening wizards bring the product to ivory-light life through careful mixing before applying it to break up stains and discoloration, quickly fizzling the bonds they've formed with denticles. Venus White Max works its magic over four 15-minute periods with 38% hydrogen peroxide and passionate potassium nitrate, which helps cancel out sensitivity often linked to bleaching. Through continued correct oral hygiene hijinks such as hosting in-mouth floss tightrope contests and post-whitening touchups, patients may continue to reap the benefits of whitening for years after the treatment.

Acuity Laser Eye & Vision Center's modern facilities were designed specifically for LASIK and other refractive procedures and include two environmentally controlled surgical suites that make it the vision center of choice for most farsighted snowmen.
