Backed by nearly three decades of practice in the local community, board-certified physician Michael Michell helms Somers Cosmetic & Laser Center's team of aestheticians and cosmetic specialists. Dr. Mitchell’s crew performs a comprehensive arsenal of medically inspired aesthetic services, including spider-vein treatments and laser hair removal. The doctor himself administers beauty injections such as Botox and Juvéderm and summons his extensive medical know-how to develop powerful facials that erase blemishes, flush dirt from pores, and wipe cheeks clean of Mom’s embarrassing lipstick marks.
Dr. Ingeborg Dziedzic and her husband, Dr. John Dziedzic, both studied at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Ingeborg received her medical degree from the school, and John completed his fellowship in neuropathology there after receiving his PhD in biochemistry at Fordham University. Both continue to practice the specialties that launched their medical careers—ophthalmology and anesthesiology respectively—though they've expanded their practice to encompass new territories of treatment and more wall space for framed diplomas.
Patients seek out the knowledgeable couple for everything from laser vision correction to cosmetic procedures such as Botox or Radiesse, and spa services such as microdermabrasion. The Dziedzics also stock a wide variety of natural supplements to holistically improve health, and guide patients through weight-loss programs supplemented by HCG, and can test for specific food allergies with ALCAT blood testing to pinpoint causes of fatigue, skin reactions, or milk-related night terrors.
The scalpel doesn't fall far from the tree in the Korngold family. Dr. Louis Korngold, director of Plastic Surgery Associates of New City, was joined in his practice by his son, Dr. Jay M. Korngold, in 2001. The father-son team lifts, tucks, and reconstructs problematic areas of the anatomy in their fully accredited, onsite operating room, and smoothes out wrinkles with nonsurgical injectables in the comfort of their office.
In addition to being a member of the Botox Cosmetic Physicians Network, Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg has been featured in many forms of media, hosts his own cosmetic-surgery radio show, and won Long Island Press' Best of Long Island 2010 Cosmetic Surgeon award. Dr. Greenberg performs a consultation with each patient before using his highly specific training to administer tiny, muscle-relaxing injections into wrinkle-causing areas while singing a lullaby in a rich baritone. The appointment lasts from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the injection site. Botox treatments smooth moderate wrinkles and prevent further depth in wrinkling, leaving skin as sleek as a bobsled track doused in canola oil. Improvement may be observed within a few days, and results can last up to four months. Discomfort from the Botox treatment is minimal; the sensation could be likened to a pinprick or a momentary flashback to one's haircut in the '80s.
The crew at Holistic Medical Spa & Laser Center of Westchester works to beautify bodies with an expansive array of surgical and nonsurgical procedures. Along with a team of experienced doctors, board-certified physician Dr. Amar Singh performs cosmetic surgeries and other procedures that range from skincare and facial rejuvenation to Botox and other dermal fillers. Specialists also conduct SmartLipo, Cellulaze, and Elite MPX treatments, which help slim the body, reduce cellulite, and reduce the appearance of veins and unwanted hair, respectively.
The selection of cosmetic dentistry services at Westchester Dental Care could span the length of a grocery list. Teeth-whitening brands include Zoom!, Sapphire, and KoR. Crooked teeth are straightened out using braces or Invisalign, and less-than-perfect smiles are covered with veneers. The option of sedation dentistry is available to patients with handicaps, a strong gag reflex, or a fear of dentists or daytime talk shows.
