Like many med-spas, Health & Wellness Center uses lasers to combat unwanted hair and beam away wrinkles. But unlike most, the facility's lasers are also calibrated to help patients quit smoking or lose unwanted pounds. Medical aestheticians help lift sagging faces sans surgery with IPL skin-tightening treatments that inundate collagen with waves of infrared light, causing tissues to contract and faces to appear more youthful. Injections of Botox and Juvederm also smooth and shape facial contours, and chemical peels with glycolic or salicylic acid dislodge dead skin by accelerating the natural process of exfoliation. To ensure patients leave healthy from head to toe, they also aim the cosmic technology to conquer toenail fungus, preparing feet for display in flip-flops or glass clogs.
Cosmetic and laser surgeon Dr. Susan Stevens Tanne and her staff provide clients with advanced skincare solutions that promote healthy, refreshed looks. Along with age-defying injectable and filler treatments, they beautify exposed epidermises with LED and laser treatments, facials, and chemical peels. Body Bling bronzing treatments flawlessly illuminate skin while eschewing usual tanning concerns such as UV exposure, spray tan odors, or the sun’s creepy, rictus grin. Soothing aromatherapy and hot towel treatments also imbue the med spa with a relaxing retreat-like vibe.
Before Dr. Alexander Ovchinsky began working with clients at Plastic Surgery of Short Hills, he spent years building on his knowledge in the field of aesthetic medicine. He received double board certification and completed a fellowship that trained him exclusively in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. In his role as assistant professor at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, he now passes on this wisdom when not working in his own clinic.
At Plastic Surgery of Short Hills, he directs staff members as they help him to work toward individuals’ beauty goals through reconstructive and cosmetic surgery as well as injectable treatments. Custom programs include facials, microdermabrasion, and peels, and laser light is used to remove unwanted hair, improve skin tone, and treat spider veins.
Since opening his own medical practice in 1986, Dr. Joseph S. Cervone has seen it all, from minor blemishes to serious skincare concerns. But what surprised the doctor most was the confidence and increased self-esteem his patients presented after he performed a cosmetic procedure for them.
This unexpected discovery led Dr. Cervone to begin slowly incorporating more nonsurgical procedures into his practice, with the goal of helping his clients feel even more satisfied and secure about their appearances. Eventually, he become the medical director of Concierge Skin Care, and since then Dr. Cervone and his friendly staff have helped restore youthful complexions with a range of aesthetic treatments ranging from microdermabrasion to laser hair removal and Botox injections.
The office can also help patients achieve more dramatic results with advanced procedures involving the latest ultrasound technology from VASER Shape, the skin-tightening powers of a Titan or Genesis laser, or spider-vein removal.
The path that led Dr. Marc L. Epstein to specialize in injectable neuroinhibitors and volumizers has been anything but expected. After more than 20 years as a board-certified interventional radiologist, Dr. Epstein retired to work on his golf game in Colorado. He then discovered a passion for acting and moved with his family to New York in order to perform on the stage and in independent films, eventually becoming a Broadway producer. The performing arts, however, didn’t prove to be his true calling. The artistically inclined doctor traded drama’s symbolic masks of comedy and tragedy for an opportunity to transform real-life frowns into smiles at his aesthetics practice.
Dr. Epstein now uses his creative energy and exacting eye for detail to create more youthful visages. He tackles signs of aging with muscle-calming cosmetic injections and treats wrinkles on the mid- and lower face with four types of dermal fillers. He also employs the innovative Ultherapy ultrasound treatment to address skin laxity caused by time, gravity, or grandmotherly cheek pinching that has continued into adulthood.
The team of certified doctors, physician assistants, and licensed aestheticians at Metropolitan Dermatology works to uphold the integrity of each client’s skin with surgical and non-surgical treatments. Dermatology experts treat a variety of skin maladies, ranging from acne and psoriasis to rosacea, skin cancer, and warts. The doctors perform surgeries such as mole excision and scar revision, with specialized care available for infants and children. The staff can also use non-surgical methods such as laser hair removal, chemical peels, Botox, and The Pristine diamond peel system to ward off signs of aging such as wrinkles, drooping skin, or sudden fascination with hard candies.
