Licensed aesthetician Juana Martinez buffs careworn visages with 60-minute private microdermabrasion treatments at Stewart Medical Group. During each treatment, Martinez gently sands epidermises with a minimally abrasive instrument that removes the thick, uneven layer of outer skin, minimizing light scars and uneven pigment caused by sun damage and semi-permanent clown makeup. The treatment also helps collagen levels to find renewed vigor, leading to smooth, even, and younger-looking complexions. Anesthetic is not used during this noninvasive procedure, as most patients report little discomfort and require no downtime.
Dr. Amiel Moshfegh—or Dr. Mosh, as his patients call him—has worked with some of vein therapy's foremost pioneers, including Dr. Robert Min of Cornell Vascular Center. This experience, along with a board certification and ample continuing education, helps him treat all manner of spider vein and varicose vein issues with minimal incisions and downtime. The institute's treatments range from the simple—graduated compression stockings to help control symptoms and grant a perfect last-minute addition to a Christmas mantel—to advanced procedures such as endovenous thermal ablation, a technique invented at Cornell that uses the insertion of a small laser fiber to seal the vein closed in a quick in-office appointment. Dr. Mosh also performs other treatments that call on the latest imaging technology, such as image-guided biopsies and kyphoplasty to treat compression fractures in the spine.
At Dr. Gold's Anti-Aging Clinic, the staff's primary concern is slowing down Father Time. To do so, they specialize in an array of anti-aging services, including wrinkle-reducing dermal-filler injections, laser treatments, and Pelleve skin rejuvenation. For signs of aging below the surface, such as lethargy or retiring hormones, they may prescribe nutritional supplements or recommend hormone-replacement therapy. On top of all this, the clinic also tackles primary care and weight-loss services.
Under the guidance of board-certified physician Dr. Kamran Hakimian, Laser Touch Medical Clinic's team of skin professionals apply Veinwave technology to polish body parts marred by visible vessels. After a brief consultation, specialists penetrate the chosen zone with several minute, insulated needles, which apply focused heat to stubborn veins to make them close up, fade away, and leave skin clearer for future games of epidermal tic-tac-toe. Vessel-vanquishing results are usually noticeable immediately and the treatment requires no downtime, lending newly polished skin a speedy return to everyday activities.
