Raindrop therapy sounds like it can only be administered by a storm or Julie Andrews, but at The Skin Care Studio, it is administered by licensed aesthetician Debra McClennan-Wagner. During the treatment, she cultivates balance within the body, incorporating an array of pure essential oils. Also certified in reflexology, McClennan-Wagner's expertise doesn’t end there—she also specializes in facials. Her clinic’s skincare treatments range from the exfoliation, steam, and scalp massage of a traditional European facial to higher-tech oxygen facials and photofacials, which combat signs of aging with therapeutic light. To foster long-term skin health, McClennan-Wagner complements her facials with educational tips on home skincare.
In addition to being a member of the Botox Cosmetic Physicians Network, Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg has been featured in many forms of media, hosts his own cosmetic-surgery radio show, and won Long Island Press' Best of Long Island 2010 Cosmetic Surgeon award. Dr. Greenberg performs a consultation with each patient before using his highly specific training to administer tiny, muscle-relaxing injections into wrinkle-causing areas while singing a lullaby in a rich baritone. The appointment lasts from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the injection site. Botox treatments smooth moderate wrinkles and prevent further depth in wrinkling, leaving skin as sleek as a bobsled track doused in canola oil. Improvement may be observed within a few days, and results can last up to four months. Discomfort from the Botox treatment is minimal; the sensation could be likened to a pinprick or a momentary flashback to one's haircut in the '80s.
Dr. Paul S. Taxin wasn't content with being your average dentist.
