Though laughter may be the best medicine, it can also be a source of facial folds and wrinkles over time. At Midtown Neurology and Aesthetics, board-certified physician Dr. Alina Rabinovich combats the aging effects of giggles by administering Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin injections in procedures that last only a few minutes. She uses dermal fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, Belotero, and Radiesse to correct medium to deep facial lines, fine lines and wrinkles, sculpting the cheeks and other facial features. In addition to rejuvenating clients aesthetically, Dr. Rabinovich also uses injection therapy to offset the effects of neurological ailments such as multiple sclerosis, stroke, and migraines.
Feeling fine is only half the battle at Forest Hills Health Center, where board-certified doctors ensure patients stay free of diseases with or without symptoms. Each member of the multispecialty group plies their healing expertise during general checkups and blood analysis or for advanced issues related to viral infections, organs, or oncology. Dedicated to patient convenience as well as health, the center helps transport eligible clients to and from the clinic and welcomes walk-ins in English, Spanish, or Russian.
Drawing on her education from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, Esmeralda Merveille has engineered a specialized health program centered around three tenants: bio-individuality, primary food, and integrative nutrition. Generally speaking, the approach is to look at how each client's lifestyle affects his or her overall health, instead of dwelling on calories and carbs. Perhaps clients are sleeping too little, stress eating, or wearing cookie dough as a hat. By assessing these bad habits, Esmeralda can help them reduce food cravings and maximize energy.
