The registered nurses and board-certified doctors that comprise the staff at The Rockland Vein Center put their impressive educational and professional backgrounds to work in treating a variety of skin issues. One of the center's main focuses is in minimizing the appearance of varicose and spider veins with sclerotherapy and Venefit procedures. But these clinical aesthetic specialists also tackle wrinkles and fine lines with facial injectables. Whichever treatment clients opt for, the team keeps the setting relaxing with the help of warm blankets, ambient music, and consultations that go over all the treatment and high-five options.
Dr. Ayman Z. Matta founded New York Eye Institute after completing a fellowship at the Bucci Cataract and Laser Vision Institute in Pennsylvania. Certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology, he not only specializes in refractive procedures, but also performs surgery to ease ailments such as cataracts, glaucoma, and tears made of grapefruit juice. His colleague Dr. Paul N. Guerriero focuses more on retinal diseases, including macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy, while the optometrist on staff, Dr. Seung-Hee Choi, doles out glasses and contact prescriptions, plus pre- and post-op care.
Raindrop therapy sounds like it can only be administered by a storm or Julie Andrews, but at The Skin Care Studio, it is administered by licensed aesthetician Debra McClennan-Wagner. During the treatment, she cultivates balance within the body, incorporating an array of pure essential oils. Also certified in reflexology, McClennan-Wagner's expertise doesn’t end there—she also specializes in facials. Her clinic’s skincare treatments range from the exfoliation, steam, and scalp massage of a traditional European facial to higher-tech oxygen facials and photofacials, which combat signs of aging with therapeutic light. To foster long-term skin health, McClennan-Wagner complements her facials with educational tips on home skincare.
In addition to being a member of the Botox Cosmetic Physicians Network, Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg has been featured in many forms of media, hosts his own cosmetic-surgery radio show, and won Long Island Press' Best of Long Island 2010 Cosmetic Surgeon award. Dr. Greenberg performs a consultation with each patient before using his highly specific training to administer tiny, muscle-relaxing injections into wrinkle-causing areas while singing a lullaby in a rich baritone. The appointment lasts from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the injection site. Botox treatments smooth moderate wrinkles and prevent further depth in wrinkling, leaving skin as sleek as a bobsled track doused in canola oil. Improvement may be observed within a few days, and results can last up to four months. Discomfort from the Botox treatment is minimal; the sensation could be likened to a pinprick or a momentary flashback to one's haircut in the '80s.
Doctors Michael and Andrew Grano, voted the favorite chiropractors in Sussex County in the 2010 New Jersey Herald Readers' Choice awards, relieve spinal and postural difficulties with chiropractic care aimed at preventing common sources of pain or illness. Consultations begin with a professional evaluation of the spine to detect irregularities or con artists masquerading as vertebrae, and a computerized orthotic scan reveals any postural problems caused by weight distribution on the feet. Digital spinal x-rays arm the skeletal therapists with a glossy map to chart treatment, which may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and massage. Patients can follow their treatment or schedule a separate appointment for a deep-tissue massage in the relaxing oasis room at the hands of Grano's experienced massage therapists. The specialist combats chronic tension with gradual strokes and deep pressure on a specific area that can leave some muscles sore and others jealous for attention. In addition, a physician will evaluate each individual's nutritional profile to point out dietary habits that can enhance their overall wellness, and present two tickets to a nutritional seminar.
Men and women have different physiologies. It's a biological truth—one that Dr. Monica Peacocke, counselor Cheryl Martin, and nutritionist Samantha LeGault embrace. Their wellness services—ranging from simple physicals to lactation counseling—cater to women of all ages and backgrounds. Samantha even tailors her nutritional counseling to most benefit a woman's current needs, whether she's pregnant or trying to develop psychic powers. The sunny, cozily appointed clinic doubles as a safe place where women in need can seek shelter.
