When it comes to his bona fides, Dr. Carlos Verdeza is a regular jet-setter. He first graduated from medical school at Columbia's Pontifical Bolivariana University before becoming an OB/GYN at Albany Medical Center in New York. From there, he cut a swath through the medical community, snatching up certifications from the International Society of Cosmetic Gynecology, American Academy of Anti Aging and Metabolic Medicine, and American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.
At his private practice, the good doctor blends his vocational pursuits to deliver a staggering array of answers to cosmetic concerns. Folks looking to offload some stubborn pounds can come in for weight-loss therapy, liposuction, or tummy tucks. If you're looking to turn back the clock, Dr. Verdeza is well-versed in hormone replacement therapy and platelet-rich plasma facelifts that redirect a client's own platelets to restore the appearance of youth to visages.
Any Lab Test Fast empowers people to chart their personal health without enlisting a middle man. Their certified staff provides clients with the same battery of lab tests medical professionals often order, letting the clients themselves choose which health tests they wish to take even if they don't have a doctor's referral or a white lab coat. These tests—ranging from vitamin-deficiency tests to viral-fatigue panels to cholesterol checks—are conducted in accordance with HIPAA and state law standards.
Led by a team of board-certified plastic surgeons, PREMIERE Center for Cosmetic Surgery helps clients to combat encroaching signs of aging and restore self-confidence with surgical and nonsurgical aesthetic treatments. Precise injections ease wrinkles or restore volume in the skin, making faces less crinkly and easier to lay flat on the Xerox machine. Complexions are further enhanced by services including peels, microdermabrasion, and medical-grade facials. Patients looking for more intensive transformations can consult with the surgeons, whose skilled hands perform lifts, tucks, and reconstructive procedures.
Sanctum Med Spa brings together doctors, aestheticians, massage therapists, and nutritionists under one roof to perform a variety of cosmetic procedures, laser skin care treatments, and nutritional counseling sessions. Their service menu also includes Botox, laser hair reduction, facials, and sunless tanning.
"At RDY MD, we pride ourselves in enhancing the beauty of our patients," says Dr. Rafael Diaz-Yoserev, the clinic's board-certified cosmetic surgeon. He adds new treatments to his range of rejuvenating and slimming procedures as they become available, always aiming to boost a patient’s confidence in their looks. With an artistic hand, Dr. Diaz-Yoserev administers the newly developed 5-minute nose job with injectable fillers and tightens slack skin with high-tech lasers, rather than the wooden mallets used by other area physicians.
Professional stylist Carla Acosta boasts an impressive CV: she began her career in the cosmetology industry at age 14, she served as a personal stylist to a Miss Universe pageant winner, and today, she helps both men and women reclaim full, lustrous heads of hair with high-tech hair-restoration treatments.
Acosta and her team of seasoned hair-restoration therapists welcome clients into a soothing, quasi-futuristic clinic full of white leather seating and sleek, streamlined furniture, then help forge individualized treatment packages based on each patient's specific needs. They might use specially formulated Keraplha Plus Keratin to nourish guests’ follicles, or human-hair wigs and extensions to create new looks as stunning as a bull keeping its hooves to itself in a china shop. The staff can perform in-studio or at-home low-level laser therapy, employing tried-and-tested techniques of hair restoration, improving blood flow to hair strands, and halting the spread of hair loss where it stands.
