Like most college graduates, Dr. Jolly stood at a fork in the road at the beginning of his career. On one side, his path pointed toward a future in the arts—he was an accomplished sculptor who had just been accepted into the School of Visual Arts in New York City—and the other side pointed toward a science career that would tap into his undergraduate degree in biology. But as fate had it, Dr. Jolly found a way to incorporate his love of both science and art—by attending the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, where he went on to graduate as a board-certified dentist.
Now, Dr. Jolly and his dedicated team of dental hygienists and assistants turn their passion into action, helping keep their clients' mouths in tiptop shape. From routine checkups to dermal-filler injections, Dr. Jolly keeps his office up-to-date on the latest techniques and equipment, and since he never double-books appointments, he has time to thoroughly explain and guide patients through their procedures. He's dedicated to building strong relationships with clients and making them feel like family, which is why he gives each person a sack of hand-me-down clothes after his or her visit.
As a physician and the owner and medical director of Nu U MedSpa and Laser Center, Dr. Priyanka Gambhir takes the time to personally perform each aesthetic medical procedure at her center. Dr. Gambhir firmly believes that these procedures should work toward restoring patients’ natural beauty as opposed to reinventing an entirely new look. To accomplish this, she relies on clinically proven techniques and the most current med-spa technologies she can find, including Alma and Cutera laser systems and skincare products infused with powdered microchips.
The namesake of Botox and Juvederm Doctor is its founder and practicing physician, Dr. Muhammad Mirza, who brings more than a decade of medical experience to his work at both locations. Dr. Mirza's task is to combat wrinkles and other signs of aging, rendering faces smooth and youthful and sending wrinkles back to the only place they belong: corduroys. Along with Botox and Juvederm injections, treatments may also feature the Photo Biotech laser hair-removal system, which helps make the skin look and feel as smooth as possible.
Lofty frame bearing towers showcase hundreds of chic styles by Gucci, Armani, and Maui Jim in the comfortable interior of Essex Fashion Optical.

Designer sunglasses ($119–$389) also grace store shelves, wagging their stems with excitement at finding a loving face to call home. Though useful without lenses as an emergency pencil organizer, frames can be outfitted with single vision ($99+) or progressive lenses ($199+).
Since opening his own medical practice in 1986, Dr. Joseph S. Cervone has seen it all, from minor blemishes to serious skincare concerns. But what surprised the doctor most was the confidence and increased self-esteem his patients presented after he performed a cosmetic procedure for them.
This unexpected discovery led Dr. Cervone to begin slowly incorporating more nonsurgical procedures into his practice, with the goal of helping his clients feel even more satisfied and secure about their appearances. Eventually, he become the medical director of Concierge Skin Care, and since then Dr. Cervone and his friendly staff have helped restore youthful complexions with a range of aesthetic treatments ranging from microdermabrasion to laser hair removal and Botox injections.
The office can also help patients achieve more dramatic results with advanced procedures involving the latest ultrasound technology from VASER Shape, the skin-tightening powers of a Titan or Genesis laser, or spider-vein removal.
After her residency at Columbia University, Dr. Marion Shapiro earned her certificate from France's French Society of Mesotherapy. Since opening her own clinic in 2002, Dr. Shapiro has been profiled in Self, Elle, and Marie Claire magazines, as well as on TV news programs. Like the wheel, mesotherapy was invented in 1952. It refers to the practice of tackling a host of cosmetic symptoms—including excess fat or cellulite, hair loss, scars, and wrinkle—with specialized medical injections. In addition to mesotherapy face-lifts, Dr. Shapiro and her staff can also make mugs look younger with peels, fillers, and laser therapy. Body contouring, diet programs, and laser hair-removal procedures are available to match bodies to their freshly refreshed faces.
