Licensed medical aesthetician Phyllis Gasparri performs each facial treatment at Skin Perfect, drawing on more than 25 years of experience as she treats acne and wrinkles during services that emphasize clinical approaches to skincare. Among her weapons of choice are lasers—which she uses to reduce scar tissue and remove hair and tattoos—and exfoliation tools such as microdermabrasion wands and chemical-peel solutions. To keep up their progress, clients can take home products from SkinCeuticals and Cell Renewal Systems or purchase one of the shop’s own line of mini facial steamers, which sterilize and clean the face while discreetly opening envelopes within a 50-yard radius.
Dr. Wayne H. Wertheim, medical director of Island Medical Laser, throws roadblocks in the path of the rapid advance of time through custom skin and body-contouring treatments. He and his team enlist facials, injectable solutions, and laser beams to drive away wrinkles and keep age spots relegated to the hides of old leopards. Noninvasive and minimally invasive procedures get to work melting fat and cellulite from problem areas. Alternatively, a range of lasers zero in on unwanted hair, blasting it from bodies or hairless cats that have gotten other ideas.

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.
