Clients in search of nonsurgical solutions to their skincare needs can hop into Cavi Spa Skin & Body Center’s Visia complexion analysis, which peers into the topical and subsurface layers of the skin, exposing UV damage and pore depth, before serving up a personalized skin-youthifying blueprint. A course of medical-grade chemical peels, microdermabrasions, or injectables can leave complexions radiating with reclaimed vigor, or teeth-whitening procedures can remove stains and add subtle sparkle to smiles. Clients looking for more dramatic results can explore the doctor’s surgical options, which can transform torsos, limbs, and faces into stunningly youthful, and often undetectably natural, versions of their former selves.
At Schlessinger Eye & Face, Dr. David Schlessinger goes far beyond eye drops and the Snellen chart. As a board-certified surgeon, Schlessinger offers three types of surgical treatments: oculoplastic surgery for instances of ptosis, skin cancer, or tearing disorders; neuro-ophthalmology, which covers all things relating to the eyes and brain, such as double vision or migraines; and, lastly, cosmetic procedures, including brow- and face-lifts and upper- or lower-eyelid surgery.
Supplementing Dr. Schlessinger's cosmetic procedures, his clinic's med spa also offers proven noninvasive beautification procedures. From within the med spa, his staff of licensed medical aestheticians battles the effects of aging and sun damage with chemical peels, microdermabrasion treatments, and custom European facials that leave faces beaming brighter than a headlight in a snowstorm.
Board certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Joseph Racanelli smoothens wrinkled faces with nonsurgical Botox treatments. Delivered by injection, the FDA-approved medicine curbs the nerve impulses responsible for the creation of frown lines and crow’s feet upon the face. Twenty units can be used to treat one area of choice to temporarily reduce the appearance of moderate-to-severe frown lines and compulsive smirks in clients aged 18–65. Treatment takes approximately 30–60 minutes, and results can last up to four months or until the Greek goddess Hebe stops playing video games and gets back to business.
Dr. Nicholas Vendemia and the experienced staff at MAS help to reduce wrinkles, dark circles, bags, and fine lines around the eyes with a complementary trio of Botox injections and laser therapies. The 60-minute process begins with precisely placed injections of FDA-approved Botox that stop wrinkle-causing muscles from furrowing into crow's feet or lines between the brows. Next, a specialist directs fractionated laser beams into facial tissues to resurface fresh skin, tightening visages and igniting a healthy glow. The process is completed with an anti-aging serum, followed by a gentle barrage of ultrasonic waves to help evict dark circles and puffy bags around the eyes.
Dr. Z. Paul Lorenc––a distinguished, board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeon––applies years of façade-refurbishing experience to nurture weathered complexions back to health through rejuvenating facial treatments. The hydrafacial, also known as the "celebrity facial," is a deeply exfoliating, crystal-free microdermabrasion that removes stubborn skin cells loitering past their expiration dates. The 30–45 minute procedure also uses hydrating serums to bathe new skin while painlessly extracting blackheads and other pore squatters. Gentle and safe for all skin types, the hydrafacial works diligently to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, and acne, leaving skin to glow brighter than a childhood star gone supernova.
The aesthetic specialists at Manhattan Surgical Care thoroughly revitalize skin via a wide variety of minimally invasive means. Microdermabrasion can target blemished skin on the chest, neck, arms, or hands but is chiefly used on the face, where giant space ants tend to aim their magnifying glasses during their dermis-damaging solar attacks. A stream of focused particles brushes away facial topsoil, helping to erase scarring, wrinkles, and sun damage, revealing youthful skin and Incan carvings beneath the mug rubble. A vacuum tool then sucks the accumulation of damaged skin away, leaving only a sparkling facescape. A typical treatment takes about 30 minutes, but duration can vary by skin type.
