As a board-certified anesthesiologist and licensed aesthetic physician who has even trained in cosmetic acupuncture, Dr. Roxana B. Kerns, M.D. is well-versed in nearly every type of anti-aging treatment. There's one she doesn't offer, however—invasive surgery. That's because she's mastered a range of techniques that accomplish what was once only achieved through surgical procedures.
For example, instead of subjecting patients to the pain of rhinoplasty or blepharoplasty, Dr. Kerns is able to smooth out the nose's profile with injectable fillers and banish dark circles under the eyes with fat-transfer techniques and laser treatments. She was also selected as an expert injector by the National Laser Institute, making her uniquely qualified to administer Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin injections that target fine lines on the face. Orchid Aesthetics also features an arsenal of laser technology designed to mend aesthetic issues of all types, including wrinkles, sagging skin, hyperpigmentation, unwanted hair, and spider veins.
In her quest to stamp out sun damage, Dr. Kerns recently developed her own line of organic skincare formulas that hydrate, boost collagen production, and reflect UV rays away from the face and onto the nearest pool party.
Dr. Victoria Karlinsky looks for ways to restore patients' self-confidence through cosmetic surgery. After training alongside expert bariatric surgeons, Dr. Karlinsky learned the art of weight-loss surgeries and lifts. Dr. Karlinsky's attention to detail extends to her face-lift, eyelid, ear, and lip surgeries, and also accounts for her winning streak in pickup games of Simon Says. Each procedure takes place after patients explain their beauty goals in a one-on-one consultation and Dr. Karlinsky maps out a viable route to achieve them. Dr. Karlinsky brandishes board certifications in both general and cosmetic surgery and can communicate to clients in English, Russian, or scalpel charades.
Laser Touch Aesthetics' team of licensed laser technicians overhauls dulled complexions and flawed skin with a roster of laser treatments and dermal fillers. Using FDA-approved Candela, Cynosure, and Cutera lasers, they aim to reduce the appearance of acne, wrinkles, and sunspots, and strive to do the same to dimples and lines caused by cellulite. During laser treatments, skin surfaces are kept at a comfortable temperature thanks to patented cooling devices.
When they're not aiming state-of-the-art laser beams at unwanted hair or moles, staffers smooth out wrinkles caused by stress or using a porcupine as a pillow with Botox, Dysport, and Juvederm treatments. Before each appointment, laser practitioners perform test spots and assess skin and hair, so they can safely customize each treatment to their client’s specifications.
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.
When patients arrive at the office of Laurence Miller, MD, they will not find assistants, office managers, or any other sort of administrative gatekeeper. Rather, Dr. Miller, who has been practicing in Westchester County since 1999, greets his patients directly. Dr. Miller draws from board certifications in internal, pulmonary, and critical-care medicine to treat general health concerns during primary-care visits. He also offers specialized women’s health-care services, as well as aesthetic treatments such as sclerotherapy for spider veins and Botox cosmetic injections. He performs onsite tests for diabetes and osteoporosis, assuming internal organs remembered to bring sharpened No. 2 pencils.
Dr. Loveleen Sood—a Diplomat of the American Board of Internal Medicine and certified Botox practitioner—teams up with master aesthetician Linda Montgomery to vivify faces at Simply Beautiful Medical Spa. 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.
