Patients meet with cosmetic surgeon Dr. Harold E. Beam amid the contemporary décor of his office or the tranquil setting of his med spa to plan surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. Using brands such as Obagi Medical and Skinceuticals, aestheticians soften surfaces and address imperfections through facials, peels, dermaplaning, and microdermabrasion. A collection of injectables reduces signs of aging and augments facial features, helping lips reach their full capacity or eyebrows raise in the least judgmental manner.

Licensed medical aesthetician Phyllis Gasparri performs each facial treatment at Skin Perfect, drawing on more than 25 years of experience as she treats acne and wrinkles during services that emphasize clinical approaches to skincare. Among her weapons of choice are lasers—which she uses to reduce scar tissue and remove hair and tattoos—and exfoliation tools such as microdermabrasion wands and chemical-peel solutions. To keep up their progress, clients can take home products from SkinCeuticals and Cell Renewal Systems or purchase one of the shop’s own line of mini facial steamers, which sterilize and clean the face while discreetly opening envelopes within a 50-yard radius.
The crew at Holistic Medical Spa & Laser Center of Westchester works to beautify bodies with an expansive array of surgical and nonsurgical procedures. Along with a team of experienced doctors, board-certified physician Dr. Amar Singh performs cosmetic surgeries and other procedures that range from skincare and facial rejuvenation to Botox and other dermal fillers. Specialists also conduct SmartLipo, Cellulaze, and Elite MPX treatments, which help slim the body, reduce cellulite, and reduce the appearance of veins and unwanted hair, respectively.
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.
Though Julie Kupersmith, M.D., P.C., specializes in surgical procedures that enhance her clients’ appearances, her New Rochelle office feels more like a boutique than a sterile clinic. In this relaxing, private setting, Dr. Kupersmith works with her clients to develop individualized treatment plans. In addition to body-contouring treatments and dermal fillers, she offers cosmetic and med-spa options that include massages, facials, chemical peels, and laser treatments that swiftly remove hair and spaceships rudely parked in your driveway.
Yolo's registered nurse and licensed clinicians administer a cornucopia of aesthetic treatments that distinguished the clinic as the Best Med Spa Experience in 2011, according to the Shoreline Times. During the spa's 30- to 45-minute Skin Tyte sessions, patients can target the lower face, jawline, or neck, where flesh has been loosened by aging or by friction from turtlenecks. The beams of a broadband laser selectively heat tissue beneath the surface of the epidermis while maximizing comfort with a cooling mechanism. This process causes collagen to contract, tightening the skin and also helping to minimize the appearance of acne scars and fine lines. Redness may occur after treatment, but typically finds a strawberry to move onto after 24 hours; some patients may experience a flushed appearance for as long as three days.
