When Dr. Ritu Saini took the reins of NY Medical Skin Solutions from her mentor—Dr. Perry Robins—she never doubted the decision to remain true to the center’s original vision. The board-certified dermatologist and her team value the health of their patients’ skin above all else. As a result, they take care to educate every visitor as they scan for signs of skin cancer, remove worrisome lesions using the innovative MOHs micrographic surgical procedure, and even treat conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Dr. Saini also incorporated a medispa, and our spa special, Triple Radiance Facials.
For a well-rounded approach to patients’ well-being, Dr. Saini and her assistants also perform a number of cosmetic procedures, which incorporate cutting-edge dermatological technology. A Q-switched ruby cosmetic laser system helps erase everything from pigmented lesions to unwanted tattoos. Omnilux blue and red light therapy treats acne scars. The Vbeam Perfecta laser conceals broken blood vessels, port wine stains, and other vascular conditions. And A CoolGlide Vantage Nd:YAG laser system zaps the follicles of unwanted stubble across the torso, limbs, and face. For a thoroughly rejuvenating treatment, the center also uses Ultherapy technology, triggering collagen production with precisely directed ultrasound waves. When combined with medical screenings, these sorts of cosmetic procedures can imbue patients with a renewed sense of confidence in their appearance as well as their health.
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.
It generally takes about six laser treatments to completely banish unwelcome hair, which is why you are conveniently able to combine two Groupons for a total of six sessions on one area. Those who don't want to go completely body bald but just want to thin out and lighten up a particularly hairy situation can simply get fewer sessions than the magic six. Upon your first visit, a clinic director will help set up your individualized treatment regimen to establish the frequency and number of visits necessary to achieve desired results. Use this initial consultation to ask pertinent questions or to swap apple-streusel recipes with your lasersmith.
To merely call Mr. Kaves prolific is to understate his colorful career as an artist. The free-spirited owner of Brooklyn Made Tattoo came of age in the tunnels of the New York City transit system, where he began crafting elaborate graffiti murals before he hit his teenage years. These murals caught the attention of other local artists—not to mention the NYPD. As his persona grew, Kaves moved on to more legal forms of self-expression. He made a name for himself as an MC for the hip-hop group Lordz of Brooklyn and started crafting commissioned street art for companies such as MTV and Adidas and artists such as Beastie Boys, Metallica, and Everlast.
At his boutique tattoo parlor in Bay Ridge, Kaves continues to find new outlets for his creativity. When he doesn't have a mic or an aerosol can in hand, he expresses himself with tattoos that feature elaborate lettering and full-color imagery. Kaves and his team of incredible artists create lively tattoos six days a week at the shop.
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 at Schweiger Dermatology. Clear Clinic is the part of that center focused on eliminating acne, whether in occasional outbursts or as part of an ongoing condition. Patients will often work continually with one staff member, whether that's a board-certified dermatologist, physician assistant, or licensed clinical aesthetician, to make sure they accomplish their goals and are left without acne scars. The team has a wide range of tools to draw upon, from Fraxel to KTP lasers, and they strive to help those who have tried every possible at-home acne treatment without finding success.
The tattoo artists and body piercers at Addiction NYC help clients express their uniqueness by adorning them with custom tattoo work and body piercings. The portfolios of their five artists encompass everything from traditional, Japanese, Polynesian, and portrait-style artwork, most of which is drafted from scratch. Their ability to develop virtually any icon or image has earned them a loyal local following, as well as clients from other countries.
If there’s one thing the Addiction team prizes above individuality, it’s safety. During piercings, they eschew reusable guns for disposable, single-use needles. Plus, each of the artists is licensed by the state of New York and has received training on the hazards of blood-born pathogens, cross-contamination, and tattooing a horse.
