Dr. Adam J. Cohen has spent nearly 10 years in private practice perfecting the art of surgical and nonsurgical facial freshening. A micro-laser peel is a fine-line annihilating alternative to a chemical peel. Instead of abandoning your visage to harsh, haphazard chemicals, it uses the computer-guided precision of lasers to gently remove outdated skin cells, banishing them to appearances on Vh1 nostalgia shows. For faces seeking a younger, softer complexion, Botox provides a fast-acting solution. Several small injections in the glabellar area (between the brows and above the nose) will temporarily relax the muscles responsible for forehead wrinkles, worry lines, and dread stripes. Results from this simple treatment can last 3–4 months. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.
At The Geldner Center, plastic surgeons Dr. Peter D. Geldner and Dr. Lawrence H. Iteld renovate façades with a bouquet of reconstructive procedures and noninvasive cosmetic tweaks. Named one of the nation's Top Doctors by US News & World Report, Dr. Geldner uses advanced medical technology—including Palomar and Sciton lasers—to help clients look and feel better, whether through face-lifts, eyelid lifts, nose reshaping, or chin augmentation. Lead aesthetician Deanna Stellato, one of four licensed aestheticians on staff, performs skin-renewing chemical peels, which exfoliate the skin and boost its ability to hold moisture while reducing the appearance of fine lines. Clients may also opt to pamper their countenances with classic facials, microdermabrasion, and gentle butterfly kisses from reflections.
