In place of aromatherapy oils, prescription medications, and invasive surgeries, the team of licensed chiropractors and massage therapists at USA Massage & Chiropractic rely on holistic treatment modalities that target the symptoms as well as the underlying causes of chronic pain. The therapists begin by identifying each client's particular needs, pinpointing the locations of everything from knotted muscles to misaligned discs. From there, they recommend a personalized treatment regimen that can incorporate spinal-decompression therapy, chiropractor-directed massages, or any number of pain-alleviating procedures. Regardless of the specific modality, every treatment has the same goal—to help clients return to an unencumbered, pain-free lifestyle.
Owner and director Jessica Plotnick is a physician assistant whose career has taken her into emergency rooms, onto the pages of The New York Times, and into the hearts of grateful patients. Her treatments are non-invasive, and her advice is routinely sought by journalists from online and print publications. At CPW Vein & Aesthetic Center, Jessica uses her more than 13 years of experience treating veins to specialize in sclerotherapy, facial peels, injectables, and laser hair removal. She also trains physicians on performing sclerotherapy, and major vascular centers often refer patients to her for treatment. Throughout each procedure, she prides herself on her ability to remain gentle with patients, which is why it wouldn't be surprising if the Lourvre asked her to perform facial procedures on Mona Lisa.
BioSkin Laser founder Dr. Dov Goldstein, a board-certified gynecologist, has over 20 years of experience in laser surgery. Clinic director Shani Vaynshenker throws in her years of cosmetic-surgery experience as the two attend to clients with meticulous, personalized care. They help bodies look and feel their best with services such as Botox injection, laser hair removal, microdermabrasion, and therapeutic tickling.
For years neurosurgery was Dr. Philip Roux-Lough’s specialty; but after he saw the effects cancer and chemotherapy had on his sister’s appearance and self-esteem, he gained a personal interest in aesthetic medicine. Dr. Philip’s new focus inspired him to found Rejuvenation MD NYC, where he now exclusively tends to patients’ cosmetic needs.
In the med spa’s lilac-painted treatment rooms, Dr. Philip and his staff fine-tune clients’ appearances with advanced facial treatments. Glycolic and PCA Skin chemical peels exfoliate skin while erasing hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and scandalous messages. Dr. Philip also injects Botox to relax wrinkles and employs Juvéderm and Radiesse to restore fullness to the face.
As a medical doctor and integrative medicine practitioner who specializes in treating pain, Dr. Kulik understands the need for treatments that work and work fast. It's with this idea in mind that the doctor has outfitted each of his three New York-based clinics with advanced beauty and health equipment.
Computer diagnostics and pain management programs help Dr. Kulik locate and treat the root of health problems, which can range from arthritis and fibromyalgia to joints that creak every time you try to tiptoe past your parents' bedroom. Dr. Kulik and his team also stave off signs of aging with both simple aesthetic treatments such as Botox injections as well as more involved services. These latter include infusing oxygen into the epidermis via a gentle-pressure machine and performing Ultherapy, which uses painless ultrasound technology to lift aging skin, a procedure highlighted by Barbara Walters on "20/20".
As a board-certified anesthesiologist and licensed aesthetic physician who has even trained in cosmetic acupuncture, Dr. Roxana B. Kerns, M.D. is well-versed in nearly every type of anti-aging treatment. There's one she doesn't offer, however—invasive surgery. That's because she's mastered a range of techniques that accomplish what was once only achieved through surgical procedures. For example, instead of subjecting patients to the pain of rhinoplasty or blepharoplasty, Dr. Kerns is able to smooth out the nose's profile with injectable fillers and banish dark circles under the eyes with fat-transfer techniques and laser treatments. She was also selected as an expert injector by the National Laser Institute, making her uniquely qualified to administer Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin injections that target fine lines on the face. Orchid Aesthetics also features an arsenal of laser technology designed to mend aesthetic issues of all types, including wrinkles, sagging skin, hyperpigmentation, unwanted hair, and spider veins. In her quest to stamp out sun damage, Dr. Kerns recently developed her own line of organic skincare formulas that hydrate, boost collagen production, and reflect UV rays away from the face and onto the nearest pool party.
