Pleasant Road Spa is a haven of relaxation and rejuvenation. Within, a team of licensed aestheticians use renowned Dermaologica and Skinceuticals products to perform more than a dozen facial treatments, including specialized services for men and expectant mothers. Adventurous clients can dabble in advanced treatments such as glycolic peels or microdermabrasion, which intensively exfoliates the face to dissolve signs of aging or soreness from a staring contest with a raccoon. Nearby, massage therapists tend to sore muscles and joints with half a dozen therapeutic techniques, while nail techs execute soothing pedicures laced with green-tea and peppermint essential oils. Excessively hirsute guests can get un-hirsuted with an array of waxing services for the face and body.
Dr. Kevin Tehrani's vast knowledge of plastic surgery keeps him in demand––he's a published author, an international speaker, an assistant clinical professor at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, and a go-to source for publications such as New Beauty magazine. But all this activity doesn't keep him from his patients. He typically spends an hour with them during their initial consultations, answering their questions, reviewing images of them on a computer, and projecting what they'd look like if they were made of pixels. Sometimes these consultations lead to cosmetic surgery, and sometimes Dr. Tehrani and his patients instead turn to such non-invasive aesthetic equipment as the Zeltiq CoolSculpting system. Ever the innovator, Dr. Tehrani launched an iPhone app called iLipo, which helps patients to alter their image on the spot to see how a given treatment will transform their body.
Skintology Skin and Laser Center’s experienced specialists help faces and bodies shrug off worn-out looks to reveal their fresher selves. Their lasers strip away unwanted hair, wayward veins, and signs of aging such as photodamage and memoirs written in wrinkles. Different types of liposuction suit a variety of lifestyles, while facial implants and injectables re-sculpt careworn mugs. Specialists are also adept at less intensive spa treatments, unclogging craniums with gentle ear candling sessions. Clients continue the pampering experience at home with the help of products that include Skintology's own proprietary line.
The clinicians at Nuvision Medspa believe art can be found everywhere, from the walls of a museum to the smile on a client’s face. They work to preserve human canvases with their suite of age-erasing treatments, busting wrinkles and unwanted hair from skin surfaces, eradicating spider veins, and evicting extra pounds with liposuction. They also surround themselves with reminders of their aesthetic mission, operating in a gallery-like office designed by architect Andrés Cortés and filled with abstract portraits, intricate sconces, and reproductions of Picasso’s med-school degrees.
At Lexington Plastic Surgeons, a team of highly trained cosmetic surgeons, registered nurses, and aestheticians work together to contour and refresh exteriors with traditional surgical treatments, including liposuction and breast reconstruction. Surgeons begin each treatment by forging a personal bond with patients, listening to their aesthetic desires and crafting a personalized plan to fulfill them.
At Park Avenue Aesthetic Surgery, P.C., the medical know-how of the staff continues to catalyze clients' physical transformations long after procedures are finished. That's because Dr. Douglas Senderoff, Park Avenue's supervising physician, fosters relationships between his staff and patients to ensure visitors thoroughly understand their procedures and to keep the lines of communication open long after they leave the office. Dr. Senderoff treats patients' skincare concerns with an array of professional-strength medi-spa services, from cosmetic injections to laser skin rejuvenation, to ease signs of aging and encourage skin to repair itself and restore its own natural glow. Each procedure begins with a complimentary consultation to give technicians the opportunity to discuss patients' treatment goals, calibrate skin-transforming technology such as multipurpose lasers, and distract Father Time with a flashy display case of diamond-plated scythes.
