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.
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.
At Lexington Plastic Surgeons, a team of highly trained cosmetic surgeons, registered nurses, and aestheticians work together to contour and refresh exteriors with traditional surgical treatments, including liposuction and breast reconstruction. Surgeons begin each treatment by forging a personal bond with patients, listening to their aesthetic desires and crafting a personalized plan to fulfill them.
At Park Avenue Aesthetic Surgery, P.C., the medical know-how of the staff continues to catalyze clients' physical transformations long after procedures are finished. That's because Dr. Douglas Senderoff, Park Avenue's supervising physician, fosters relationships between his staff and patients to ensure visitors thoroughly understand their procedures and to keep the lines of communication open long after they leave the office. Dr. Senderoff treats patients' skincare concerns with an array of professional-strength medi-spa services, from cosmetic injections to laser skin rejuvenation, to ease signs of aging and encourage skin to repair itself and restore its own natural glow. Each procedure begins with a complimentary consultation to give technicians the opportunity to discuss patients' treatment goals, calibrate skin-transforming technology such as multipurpose lasers, and distract Father Time with a flashy display case of diamond-plated scythes.
