At LaseRx Medical Aesthetic Center, board-certified Dr. Adam W. Mauer rejuvenates vexed complexions of various skin types with minimally invasive procedures and SkinMedica serums. A self-described "human artist," Dr. Mauer fills out the furrows in cheeks with Botox injections and polishes skin to match the smoothness of sculpted marble with laser hair-removal treatments. His meticulous craft is on full display during Pixel Perfect skin-resurfacing treatments, which beam away sun damage, acne scars, and wrinkles in the forehead’s time-space continuum.
Inside Bright Medical & Aesthetic Clinic, board-certified physician Khaled Osman calls on years of medical training to keep skin looking young and healthy. A variety of chemical peels and facials slough off dull layers of dead skin, revealing a fresh, new layer, much like resurfacing a home's floor to reveal its original Twister board. Additionally, Dr. Osman harnesses laser technology to remove unwanted body hair and irons out facial wrinkles with tailored injections of Botox. Bodies benefit from cellulite-banishing treatments and a range of muscle-melting massages.

According to Vein Medic, an estimated one in four people suffer from some form of leg-vein disorder during their lives. These varicose and spider veins can be painful, and even if they aren't, they can make people feel uncomfortable with their appearance. So Vein Medic's physicians, including board-certified Dr. Michael Kassouf, who has been eradicating unwanted veins for more than 25 years, fight them with a variety of treatments.
Two of the most popular treatments include sclerotherapy and endovenus laser therapy. During sclerotherapy treatments, doctors inject the unwanted veins with an FDA-approved sclerosing solution, which causes the veins to collapse, die, and eventually fade from view. Endovenus laser treatments also collapse veins, though they require a laser fiber to be inserted into the vein. Both minimally invasive treatments can help patients feel more confident walking around in public in shorts, dresses, and figure-skating costumes in a few weeks.
Located in Astoria, Queens, Carl Clarke Aesthetiques is a cosmetic medical center that specializes in cosmetic facial procedures and body contouring—non-surgical skin-renewing treatments and spa treatments that are designed to rejuvenate and relax clients. Cosmetic medical specialist Carl Clarke, RPA-c heads up this soothing beauty spot, where his team of medical professionals provide dermal fillers, such as Radiesse and Restylane Perlane, as well as vein therapy, laser treatments, and chemical peels. Clients can come in for a round of collagen induction therapy, which helps the skin take on a more youthful glow, or have a series of Botox injections, which reduce the fine lines and wrinkles that come with aging or sleeping on your face all night. The spa also offers bioslimming treatments and a host of radio frequency modalities to treat the entire body.
En route to co-founding and directing Allure Skincare & Laser Center, Valerie Karpaty nabbed certification as a medical assistant, registration as a phlebotomist by the AAMA, a license to perform permanent makeup, and 10 years of experience as an aesthetician. She brings all this accrued knowledge to bear during FDA-approved skin and body treatments, which she uses primarily to avert the signs of aging. Like a sci-fi author's excuses for his story's many plot holes, Karpaty's services often rely on technology: Endermologie mechanically stimulates the skin to promote collagen production, and IPL laser treatments bathes faces in light from an el?s-brand machine to minimize blemishes. To further connect to the community, Karpaty participates in programs that give cancer patients bold new eyebrows.
