Hair follicles move through cycles of growth, transition, and rest. Their growth period is known as the anagen phase and hair growth is Anagen Hair Solutions’ specialty. Its technicians perform FDA-approved low-level-laser therapy sessions, utilizing cool light from 165 diode lasers that increase blood supply to the scalp, thereby stimulating hair regrowth. The team also draws on FDA-approved Mediceuticals products to treat a range of scalp and skin disorders, which have been proven more effective than traditional methods such as donning a top hat.
Inside the Vein Center at NYC Surgical Associates, Dr. David Greuner uses the latest minimally invasive techniques to oust unsightly varicose veins, spider veins, and other vein disorders. Dr. Greuner began his medical career as a resident at the University of Arizona and Mount Sinai School of Medicine affiliate hospitals, where his skill with patients and spot-on stethoscope impression won him Chief Resident of the Year. He went on to complete a cardiovascular and thoracic surgery fellowship, as well as improve his knowledge of minimally invasive procedures and minimal access/robotic surgery.

A panoply of medical practices converge at Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, where husband-and-wife team Dr. Elie Levine and Dr. Jody Levine practice an impressive repertoire of aesthetic procedures. Non-invasive, medical-grade chemical peels and laser therapies seemingly wipe away signs of aging, and more involved treatments can re-sculpt silhouettes with surgical facelifts, injectable fillers, and ear reshaping. Since Dr. Jody is a board-certified dermatologist and a pediatrician, she can also treat kids who suffer from eczema, vascular birthmarks, and crow's feet.
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.
Dr. Eric S. Schweiger, a board-certified dermatologist whose expertise has dotted the pages of Cosmo and Glamour, leads a talented team of doctors and technicians in treating a variety of skin woes. From among the menu of medical and cosmetic services, lasers run rampant; zapping away unwanted hair, tattoos, and fat cells, or putting on entertaining light shows in the slate- and blue-hued waiting room. Dr. Schweiger, who also serves as an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center, remains active in clinical research, recently publishing the first case report for using Restylane to treat a cleft lip.
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.
