Though Cutera, Cynosure, and Candela may sound like viable names for newly discovered planets, they're actually brands of medical-grade lasers. Still, their wavelengths achieve feats that were once under science fiction's umbrella—zapping away blemishes and unwanted hair from the dermal landscape. The certified technicians and medical personnel at Velvet Effect Lasers have mastered this high-tech arsenal; their machines can shrink spider veins, clear away acne, and tighten wrinkles through the power of light and heat, often allowing clients to return to work immediately after their appointments. The staff acquaints clients with potential treatments during thorough consultations. They even allow them to experience the lasers' effects firsthand, isolating a small section of skin for a test-patch that shows how gentle the beam feels.
In addition to administering focused remedies for rosacea, uneven skin texture, and fine lines, the technicians can combine their laser services into customized packages. For example, a three-step approach includes pulsed light PhotoGenesis sessions, anti-aging Laser Genesis procedures, and further tightening with Titan equipment, which can reduce sagging around the face and abdomen without training both lips and navels to smile indefinitely. The center's menu features non-laser treatments as well; Botox and other dermal fillers help fade facial creases, and skincare products from Obagi exfoliate and pamper pores.
As a board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Huachen Wei has dedicated his career to skin health. He has written more than 200 articles on the topic of dermatology and has even created his own line of cleansers and creams under the name Dr. Wei’s Skin Care. In addition to overseeing the beauty and laser treatments performed at WW Med Spa, he is also a full professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center.
At Dr. WW Med Spa, the spa is finished with modern, chic European interior design. Experienced aestheticians mix ancient oriental skills with modern technology and advanced equipment to perform treatments.
Dolce Aesthetics NY operates under the supervision of Dr. Jean Claude Compass and the expertise of RN and owner Jennifer DiLandro. DiLandro began her career working with plastic surgeons, and became intrigued by nonsurgical aesthetic options such as Botox and dermal fillers. After receiving certificates in these treatments, she went on to open her own practice. In addition to plumping and smoothing faces, she and her staff wield lasers to remove unwanted hair and deeply exfoliate skin with microdermabrasion and chemical peels. They also perform luxurious facials using Obagi products and apply eyelash extensions for women who want a lush look or simply are prone to cold eyelids.
Body and Care Spa pampers guests with a luxurious selection of services designed to relax and beautify. Decadent treatments include the 24-karat gold mask, which layers thin sheets of the precious mineral over faces to stimulate the production of wrinkle-fighting collagen. Skin treatments include the gentleman's facial, which relaxes and nourishes skin while alleviating irritation from shaving or trying to glue hair back on after shaving mishaps. The spa's portfolio of laser treatments includes hair-removal and acne-ameliorating sessions that offer longterm reduction of blemishes.
It might be impossible to go back in time, but that hasn’t stopped the specialists at Esthelis Clinic from trying. At this 10,000 square-foot facility, they administer surgical and noninvasive procedures that help guests leave looking younger than when they entered. Mesotherapy, for instance, works to firm skin with microinjections of vitamins and minerals, while clients’ own platelet-rich plasma might be used to restore the youthful glow of a firefly at prom. In addition to age-defying services, the beauty hotspot also helps visitors stay in shape by offering access to a gym and two full-sized indoor swimming pools.
Vanity Laser's aestheticians don't view their treatments as merely aesthetic; rather, they strive to improve skin's health and appearance with each procedure. Using a quartet of FDA-approved lasers, including the GentleLase Pro and VelaShape II, the Vanity team's treatments rid bodies of stretch marks, cellulite, and unwanted hair. For new mothers, aestheticians offer the aforementioned procedures, as well as C-section scar removal and stretch-mark reduction. They also stand out as an inclusive establishment by specifically catering other treatments, such as scar reduction and body shaping, to transgender patients.
