Dr. Kevin Tehrani's vast knowledge of plastic surgery keeps him in demand––he's a published author, an international speaker, an assistant clinical professor at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, and a go-to source for publications such as New Beauty magazine. But all this activity doesn't keep him from his patients. He typically spends an hour with them during their initial consultations, answering their questions, reviewing images of them on a computer, and projecting what they'd look like if they were made of pixels. Sometimes these consultations lead to cosmetic surgery, and sometimes Dr. Tehrani and his patients instead turn to such non-invasive aesthetic equipment as the Zeltiq CoolSculpting system. Ever the innovator, Dr. Tehrani launched an iPhone app called iLipo, which helps patients to alter their image on the spot to see how a given treatment will transform their body.
Pod Laser Aesthetics' team of physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners harnesses an arsenal of lasers to keep skin looking youthful. The gentle, noninvasive treatments reduce unwanted hair, smooth out wrinkles, and squash spider veins into oblivion. The staff also give these surface treatments subdermal support, employing quick injections of Botox or dermal fillers to beautify faces from the inside out. Before their appointments, patients can read the FAQ for answers to any questions about treatments or whether they need to bring their own scuba suit.
J Spa's seasoned staff employs the latest laser technology and techniques to banish wily bristles while stampeding unwanted follicles’ will to live. With various treatment areas available, hair-plagued honchos can quell wooly uprisings on the upper lip (a $200 value per treatment), sideburns or chin (a $250 value per treatment), or underarm or basic bikini line (a $300 value per treatment). Treatments begin with an application of a topical numbing cream, followed by relaxing customized spa therapy in one of J Spa's luxurious private rooms. Afterward, a friendly technician zaps the targeted area with direct laser light, liberating timid epidermises from their fuzzy oppressors. Two additional follow-up treatments, scheduled in four- to eight-week intervals, prevent hair bullies from revisiting skin school yards. Customers can also purchase a second Groupon to treat another bodily area, eliminating the need for alternative means of hair removal, such as shaving, waxing, or coating yourself in bread crumbs until pigeons pluck you smooth.
Angela Azar MD is a board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon who graduated from the Icahn School of Medicine and Mount Sinai. That varied background explains why her med spa offers both cosmetic and medical services. With the help of a trained staff, she uses Botox injections, glycolic peels, and skin-cancer screenings to bear health and beauty goals. The office's arsenal of equipment includes low-level lasers for vanquishing unwanted fat, injections for reducing spider veins, and forest-ranger hats for scaring away bears.
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.
