Dr. Marc L. Epstein locates the lost faces of youth with the aid of modern FDA-approved beauty injections and a skilled, artful touch. Dysport slows down frantic facial muscles by blocking nerve impulses in a targeted attempt to smooth creases found in common wrinkle-squatting spots such as the forehead, between the brows, the space-time continuum, and around the eyes. The entire treatment takes about 15 minutes and results typically appear within a few days. Restylane plumps deflated lips, voids laugh lines, and eliminates under-eye sadness in about 30 minutes with a hyaluronic-acid-infused gel. The time-rewinding serum's handiwork may last six months or more, or about the amount of time it takes to dig a tunnel to Nova Scotia. The elegant medical office treats visitors' vehicles to free parking.
Natalya—a certified permanent-makeup artist and a board-certified cosmetologist—draws on 15 years of experience as she embellishes the faces that find their way into her Permanent Makeup Zone. While working in New York and Europe, she honed her micropigmentation skills, which she uses to subtly accentuate lips, eyes, and brows. Under her adept hands, lips receive soft outlines and sparse brows regain their boldness, which she creates with her soft hair-stroke technique and cauldron full of natural hues.
In addition to elective adornments, Natalya also obscures scars and beautifies clients who suffer from makeup or Crayola allergies. She also primps men by applying small dots of color around their lash lines, which makes glances more seductive without hampering their ability to blink in code. While she works, she uses sterile and disposable supplies—as well as and topical anesthetics—all with the approval of the local health department. She also performs an allergy test on each of her clients 24 hours before she indelibly dolls them up, to avoid adverse reactions.
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.
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.
