Serge and Ilona Barlam, graduates of the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, run Advanced Foot and Ankle Clinics, a full-service center with sophisticated diagnostics, diabetic care, and laser-therapy services. Their treatments emphasize preventive care, with routine care available for those without troubling injuries and physical therapy or surgery available for those who need major changes. Laser therapy relies on GenesisPro by Cutera, Q-Clear, or CoolTouch lasers to diminish the appearance of onychomycosis, a fungus that makes the toenails yellow, thicken, and unable to show off engagement toe rings.

Nothing at LifeXMD is “off the shelf.” The physicians attempt to undo the most common detriments of advancing age, such as weight gain, decreased energy, and irritability, with treatments personalized to each client. They base treatments on the results of lab tests and the client’s personal health goals, prescribing supplements or hormones that can last up to six months, extending the time between follow up appointments.
Board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat and his highly trained and experienced Botox injection technicians smoothes brows, de-furrows frown lines, and scatters crow’s feet with Botox injections. After an informative, free consultation, patients recline in a chair or bed as the doctor determines where to place the injections and which eyebrow can best pull off highlights. No anesthesia is required during the 10-minute procedure, but clients can request a cold pack to numb soon-to-be-smoothed faces before the practitioner injects tiny amounts of botulinum toxin into facial furrows. Within as little as a few days, the solution eases stubborn wrinkles' grasp on foreheads and brow lines, diminishing their appearance and late-night dance parties for up to four months. Clients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
