Before moving to the United States, Dr. John Mwando studied at the University of Nairobi in Kenya, where he earned his doctor of medicine degree with a concentration in infectious disease. Once stateside, he continued his studies, graduating with honors from the New York College of Podiatric Medicine before engaging in a three-year residency. Now, as an attending physician at three institutions, he devotes his time to performing foot and ankle surgery and other procedures that produce happy feet. Certified by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery, he reduces bunions and evicts nail fungi, readying feet to appear in sandals when it gets hot outside or appear in court when it gets hot in the jury box.
Rather than let tattoos naturally fade over time, NYC Tattoo Removal Spa's lasers swiftly break down ink so the body can absorb it. They keep chipping away at the tattoo every seven weeks, which allows the body to absorb more and more fragments of the tattoo until it has disappeared. Along with tattoo removal, the spa's aestheticians enrich skin with services such as waxing, facials, and chemical peels.
Dr. Bruce K. Moskowitz's wide-ranging educational background is as varied as his cosmetic and reconstructive services. He first earned his board certification as an ophthalmologist before pursuing post-doctoral training in reconstructive surgery. As he became an authority on cosmetic and oculoplastic services, publishing articles and lecturing around the country, he kept up with his own personal practice by performing around 400 in-office procedures annually.
At his medical spa, Envision Aesthetics, he treats the ills of aging epidermis with nonsurgical Botox, chemical peels, laser skincare, and face-lifts. Using advanced technology, Dr. Moskowitz's treatments attempt to reverse the aging process without dialing back internal odometers.
At Spa Jolie, aestheticians, massage therapists, and laser technicians cull techniques from a variety of cultures to beautify their clients. Reflexology, a 4,000-year-old Chinese method of applying pressure to specific points in the hands and feet, joins traditional Swedish and deep-tissue modalities to soothe weary physiques. Fresh, European seaweed makes up one of the layers in the four-layer facial to help tone and tighten the skin. When performing the ancient Indian technique of threading, technicians capture unwanted facial hair between twists of cotton fibers. These culturally diverse practices appear alongside a roster of lasers, made from all-natural, locally harvested machine parts, which help reduce cellulite and even whiten teeth.
It generally takes about six laser treatments to completely banish unwelcome hair, which is why you are conveniently able to combine two Groupons for a total of six sessions on one area. Those who don't want to go completely body bald but just want to thin out and lighten up a particularly hairy situation can simply get fewer sessions than the magic six. Upon your first visit, a clinic director will help set up your individualized treatment regimen to establish the frequency and number of visits necessary to achieve desired results. Use this initial consultation to ask pertinent questions or to swap apple-streusel recipes with your lasersmith.
A board-certified dermatologist, Dr. James Briley studied at Auburn University and Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine before completing residencies in New York City. He has fellowships and affiliations with several medical associations and is currently an attending dermatologist at Beth Israel Medical Center. At Skin Solutions Dermatology in the Flatiron District, he helps attend to patients' medical and cosmetic dermatological needs for skin across their entire body, excluding the belly button's invisible cap. Injectable medicines such as Botox and Juvéderm can target facial wrinkles, and medical and surgical procedures can treat afflictions such as acne, moles, or birthmarks, as well as more serious issues such as pigmentary disorders and cancerous cells. The office's online patient portal grants easy access to appointments, forms, payments, and prescriptions.
