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.
Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Lenora Felderman has shared her beauty expertise in national magazines and in clinical-research articles published in industry journals. She has also served on the advisory boards of leading cosmetic and pharmaceutical companies, which allows her to stay abreast of the latest developments in the field of dermatology.
For more than 25 years, Dr. Felderman has performed general dermatology services such as mole removal and psoriasis treatments, as well as anti-aging aesthetic procedures including dermal fillers, laser skin tightening, and Zeltiq CoolSculpting. Thanks to her extensive knowledge and experience, she was named one of Castle Connolly's Top Doctors in the New York metro area from 2006 to 2012, as featured in New York magazine. She even won a 2012 Patients' Choice Award as well as a Compassionate Doctor Award in 2011 from Vitals.com due to her warm bedside manner and encouraging fist bumps.
Cindy Barshop may have a familiar face. She gained reality-TV fame as a cast member of The Real Housewives of New York City, but she found success much earlier when the Madison Avenue spa she founded more than 10 years ago grew into a hair-removal brand known throughout the country. Completely Bare’s waxing specialists dab bikini lines with the shop’s proprietary blend of ouch-less wax, which adheres to hair instead of skin to avoid the painful pull that often accompanies a waxing session. The blend is hypoallergenic and does not cause acne, which makes it ideal for depilating sensitive skin and touchy bodily zones. Routine waxing sessions add extra sparkle with the salon’s vajazzling service, which bedecks newly hair-free spots with up to 70 Swarovski crystals arranged into such shapes as hearts, stars, peace signs, and MPAA ratings. The spa specialists also migrate beyond the below-the-belt area to polish the rest of the body with facials, laser hair removal, spray tanning, and teeth whitening.
Owner and director Jessica Plotnick is a Physician Assistant whose career has taken her into emergency rooms, onto the pages of The New York Times, and into the hearts of grateful patients. Her treatments are non-invasive, and her advice is routinely sought by journalists from online and print publications. At CPW Vein & Aesthetic Center, Jessica uses her more than 14 years of experience treating veins to specialize in sclerotherapy, facial peels, injectables, and laser hair removal. She also trains physicians on performing sclerotherapy, and major vascular centers often refer patients to her for treatment. Throughout each procedure, she prides herself on her ability to take her time and remain gentle with patients, which is why it wouldn't be surprising if the Lourvre asked her to perform facial procedures on Mona Lisa.

LaserTouch 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, the skin's surface is 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 Juvéderm 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.
