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.
An armory of products by Mitch, Paul Mitchell's selection for men, brings order to scraggly heads, which peer hopefully at The ManCave's poker table and flat-screen television. Gents twirl in padded styling chairs, listening to the shouts of excitement that drift beneath sports memorabilia and a tyrannosaurus rex bust. Neon beer signs cast their colorful warmth across the ebony-hued leather of long couches, and a puck ricochets sharply off the rim of an air-hockey table, allowing patrons to showcase athletic skills far from the suit-ruining fur of shedding mascots.
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.
After her residency at Columbia University, Dr. Marion Shapiro earned her certificate from France's French Society of Mesotherapy. Since opening her own clinic in 2002, Dr. Shapiro has been profiled in Self, Elle, and Marie Claire magazines, as well as on TV news programs. Like the wheel, mesotherapy was invented in 1952. It refers to the practice of tackling a host of cosmetic symptoms—including excess fat or cellulite, hair loss, scars, and wrinkle—with specialized medical injections. In addition to mesotherapy face-lifts, Dr. Shapiro and her staff can also make mugs look younger with peels, fillers, and laser therapy. Body contouring, diet programs, and laser hair-removal procedures are available to match bodies to their freshly refreshed faces.
