The path that led Dr. Marc L. Epstein to specialize in injectable neuroinhibitors and volumizers has been anything but expected. After more than 20 years as a board-certified interventional radiologist, Dr. Epstein retired to work on his golf game in Colorado. He then discovered a passion for acting and moved with his family to New York in order to perform on the stage and in independent films, eventually becoming a Broadway producer. The performing arts, however, didn’t prove to be his true calling. The artistically inclined doctor traded drama’s symbolic masks of comedy and tragedy for an opportunity to transform real-life frowns into smiles at his aesthetics practice.
Dr. Epstein now uses his creative energy and exacting eye for detail to create more youthful visages. He tackles signs of aging with muscle-calming cosmetic injections and treats wrinkles on the mid- and lower face with four types of dermal fillers. He also employs the innovative Ultherapy ultrasound treatment to address skin laxity caused by time, gravity, or grandmotherly cheek pinching that has continued into adulthood.

Anume Med Spa's board-certified physicians brandish the latest techniques in aesthetic medicine. During 10-minute Botox sessions, clients can sit back while the physician erases years of damage resulting from funny faces forged in cold weather. On average, most treatment areas undergo noticeable change after 12 non-surgical units, each of which aids in the reduction of frown lines around the eyes, lips, or glabella respectively. The service is designed with comprehensive care and instruction in mind, and all clients depart with a firm grasp on upkeep and how to make their aesthetic upgrade endure.
Beauty is serious business at Allure Plastic Surgery Center, and the company's four plastic surgeons have been trained accordingly. Dr. Elliot Heller co-founded the American Academy of Aesthetic and Restorative Surgery, and his colleagues boast board certifications and advanced training in specialties such as reconstructive surgery, microsurgery, and nonsurgical body-contouring alternatives. These physicians focus on keeping their visitors comfortable as they usher them through the surgical suite or into the office for outpatient procedures such as injecting Botox, exfoliating with microdermabrasion, performing laser hair-removal, or simply supplying ultra-flattering mirrors.
