Dr. Sood is well versed in an array of revitalizing treatments, including Botox, laser hair removal, and injectable dermal-fillers, which help restore youthful smoothness with long-lasting results. And at the facial bar, her counterpart Linda delivers immediate aesthetic upgrades, whipping up nutrient-rich cocktails made from botanical extracts, which she gingerly slathers across faces like therapeutic meringue pies.
Jonathan M. Posner, DPM, the podiatrist at the helm of Laser Foot Care Of New York, tackles foot and nail problems with aplomb. Dr. Posner and his team deploy a variety of futuristic lasers to treat foot ailments, including types of foot pain, toenail fungus, and inability to dance the foxtrot.
Podiatrist Jay Mermelstein, D.P.M., who began caring for feet and ankles in 1989, diagnoses and treats pedal problems and rehabilitates patients under one roof. Working alongside an experienced staff, he addresses issues ranging from sprains to diabetes-related complications to Achilles tendonitis and ingrown toenails. Advanced diagnostic tools such as x-rays and ultrasounds work in tandem with treatments such as laser therapy, radio wave surgery, and whirlpool therapy. Dr. Mermelstein empowers patients to make informed decisions about their healthcare with extensive educational resources that demystify sports injuries, nail problems, and heel vulnerability in swift-footed Greeks. Same-day appointments are available.
After gliding over glistening wooden floors supporting chic, modern fixtures, licensed aesthetician Najia Rohlf and her team greet guests in need of custom skin revitalization. In the first phase of the 60-minute European facial, a staff member cleanses pores and dusts off skin detritus. Extraction follows exfoliation, and then the aesthetician sheathes skin with a mask designed to ward off cheek-pinching aunts. Finally, a moisturizer restores suppleness and vanishes croissant flakes holding on since breakfast. Following treatments, clients can admire their newly radiant visages in nearby storefront windows and crossing guards' suits of armor.
After discussing each patient's treatment during a free consultation, board-certified physician Dr. Carol E. Tetenbaum draws upon her 25 years of medical practice to reduce the signs of aging in client's faces for four months to one year. Her Botox and Dysport injections temporarily improve frown lines by blocking nerve impulses to facial muscles, while her Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane treatments correct wrinkles and folds around noses and mouths by adding volume to skin. Unlike rubbing a rolling pin against your face, Dr. Tetenbaum's wrinkle-reversing procedures cause little to no discomfort and require no downtime. During chemical peels, she uses Obagi Blue Peel RADIANCE, diminishing fine lines, blemishes, and mild scarring; more Obagi products are available at The Aesthetic Medic for purchase.
An injured foot can set off a chain reaction of pain in the body, affecting the back, knees, and hips. To help care for the 26 bones, 107 ligaments, and 19 muscles that make up the human foot, Dr. Lawrence Handler offers a variety of services. He treats all foot disorders including warts, athlete's foot, hammertoes, bunions, ingrown toenails, arch and heel pain. Dr. Handler also specializes in orthotics and custom molded shoes.
A group of more than 50 podiatrists across the world have one thing in common, besides podiatry: they received training from Dr. Dean Spellman, a 25-year veteran who tends to the foot-oriented needs of clients of all ages. In addition to holding positions at several hospitals and surgical centers, Dr. Spellman serves as one of two podiatrists at Family Foot Care—a well-established podiatric center with locations throughout the New York City area. And when he’s not helping patients regain the pep in their step, Spellman takes the time to work with youth soccer teams to ensure all participants can run, kick, and victoriously prance with ease.
