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.
Dr. Amjad Safvi has spent more than 15 years in the medical field focusing on vascular issues, particularly varicose and spider veins. He now oversees Advanced Vein Treatment & Cosmetic Center, where he and his caring staff treat patients to complimentary consultations before administering laser, radio-frequency, and sclerotherapy vein treatments along with a host of other aesthetic treatments. The facility’s laser collection, the high-tech cherry on its med-spa sundae, allows the staff to showcase hair-removal, anti-aging, and facial-rejuvenation treatments that round out a crowded roster that includes SkinMedica chemical peels, Botox injections, and fillers that can last up to five years.
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.
Dr. Eric S. Schweiger, a board-certified dermatologist whose expertise has dotted the pages of Cosmo and Glamour, leads a talented team of doctors and technicians in treating a variety of skin woes at Schweiger Dermatology. Clear Clinic is the part of that center focused on eliminating acne, whether in occasional outbursts or as part of an ongoing condition. Patients will often work continually with one staff member, whether that's a board-certified dermatologist, physician assistant, or licensed clinical aesthetician, to make sure they accomplish their goals and are left without acne scars. The team has a wide range of tools to draw upon, from Fraxel to KTP lasers, and they strive to help those who have tried every possible at-home acne treatment without finding success.
At Lexington Plastic Surgeons, a team of highly trained cosmetic surgeons, registered nurses, and aestheticians work together to contour and refresh exteriors with traditional surgical treatments, including liposuction and breast reconstruction. Surgeons begin each treatment by forging a personal bond with patients, listening to their aesthetic desires and crafting a personalized plan to fulfill them.
Having a doctor who listens is one thing—having a doctor who's invested in your health is another. Dr. Mindel of Holistic NYC has been running his practice for more than 25 years, and he still makes time to get to know each of his patients deeply before working with them. The diplomas on his wall aren't anything to overlook either: as a doctor of chiropractic, a certified nutritionist, and a holistic health-care specialist board-certified in integrative medicine, Dr. Mindel has seen every kind of patient over his long career. He puts that lengthy experience to work with every treatment he prescribes, whether a patient needs a nutrition revamp or chiropractic work to help ease aches and pains.
