Happy Independence Day, from Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC! It’s time to start thinking about that summer getaway. Do you want smooth skin in time for vacation? NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, offers a variety of skin treatments for clear, beautiful skin. Laser hair removal can permanently remove unsightly hairs so you can flaunt that bikini, while our ThermaScan laser treatment can keep skin looking acne-free!
Zap Unwanted Hair At The Root!
The Vectus® Laser is the latest tool in laser hair removal! The Vectus® uses Photon Recycling™ to remove hair quickly and with less skin irritation than more traditional hair removal methods. By transferring light down the shaft of the hair, the Vectus destroys follicles at the root. Vectus laser hair removal can target any areas of hair growth on the body, from concentrated areas to larger, more expansive body parts, such as the back and chest. The Vectus® also contains a Skintel™ Melanin Reader™ that can measure the average amount of melanin in your skin—determining your recommended treatment setting. This allows for personalized and more efficient care.
Control Acne and Oily Skin!
If you’re not seeing the results you want with traditional acne solutions, then consider laser acne treatment! ThermaScan laser treatment penetrates deep into the skin to promote new collagen growth and reduce oil production in as little as 30 minutes a treatment. Not only can ThermaScan be used to treat facial acne, but it can also be used as a solution to acne on the back and chest. This non-invasive treatment has virtually no downtime and you can resume daily activities immediately.
NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, NY Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, and staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about laser hair removal and laser acne treatment.

Father’s Day is almost here, and we’d like to wish all fathers and grandfathers out there a Happy Father’s Day, including our board certified plastic surgeon and revered hair specialist, Dr. Elie Levine! With Father’s Day comes the official arrival of summer.
However, if you hair is thinning, traditional balding solutions may keep you from enjoying a day at the pool. Toupees and spray-on hair products only mask the appearance of balding. Worse, they cannot get wet like your natural hair. Our hair doctor at NYC Hair Restoration offers NeoGraft and hair transplant options for men that actually regrow your natural hair, so you can enjoy some fun in the sun this summer.
NeoGraft is an innovative hair restoration technique designed to achieve natural-looking, healthy hair with unparalled precision! During the procedure, hair follicles are harvested “hands free” with the help of an automated system. These follicles are then kept in a moist environment to ensure they remain healthy during graft preparation. Follicles are then placed at the crown and hairline with stunning accuracy.
During the NeoGraft procedure, many patients choose to enjoy leisure activites, such as listening to music or reading a book. NeoGraft is a minimally invasive treatment and there is no scarring and little downtime afterward!
Having a great head of hair extends beyond your appearance. Feeling self-conscious about your hair can affect your self-esteem and hinder you from enjoying your favorite summer activities. Our innovative hair restoration options can provide natural-looking results and restore confidence in your look.
Our NY Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, and staff at NYC Hair Restoration welcome any questions you may have about our NeoGraft and Linear Strip Method procedures, as well as any other hair restoration methods. Contact our office at 1.800.755.4247 or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!

It’s finally summertime! That means gorgeous weather and plenty of time outdoors. However, summer also brings a host of skin care challenges. The summer sun can cause damage to your skin if you’re not prepared. Did you know you’re at an increased risk of breakouts—with acne triggering from some unexpected sources? At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we can help you keep your skin fresh while you beat the heat!
The Oil-Free Key To Healthy Skin!
In the heat of the summer, your skin doesn’t need a thick coat of heavy moisturizer to stay hydrated. Our New York dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, recommends applying a light, oil-free moisturizer to lock in moisture and avoid dryness and peeling. Even better, these light moisturizers can fight dryness from cholorine and many have an SPF to protect against sunburn.
Shield Yourself From The Sun’s Rays!
Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen! While the sun poses a threat to your skin year-round, the summer sun can be extremely damaging—especially its ultraviolet rays. The key to preventing sun damage is reapplying sunscreen multiple times a day. All too often, we are guilty of applying sunscreen in the morning and then heading out for a summer day. Unfortunately, sunscreen only lasts about 2 hours. Dr. Levine recommends to reapply sunscreen generously throughout your day, no matter the weather conditions. You are still at risk even on a cloudy day! UV rays can also penetrate office windows and car windshields, so make sure to lather up before leaving for work.
Acne Triggers From The Unlikliest of Places!
You may never have considered your sunglasses as a potential cause for acne, but did you know that oil from dirty sunglasses can trigger breakouts? As dirt and bacteria build up on your glasses, the areas around your nose, temple, and cheeks are more susceptible to acne. Dr. Levine says to give your sunglasses a quick cleaning every time before use to reduce breakouts!
Our NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, NY Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, and staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about skin care, sun damage, and acne treatments.

Bikini season is here! Are there certain “problem” areas preventing you from wearing your favorite bikini? You may find yourself struggling to lose those last few inches of stubborn fat around your abdomen and thighs in time to flaunt your figure. However, advancements in liposuction techniques have made the process of slimming stubborn fat areas more efficient, less invasive, and resulting in less downtime compared to traditional techniques! At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we provide individualized liposuction procedures to target your problem areas and achieve your desired results.
Slim and Shape Your Body!
You can target unwanted fat with precision thanks to our VASER LipoSelection procedure. This technique uses ultrasound energy to remove fat from most areas of the body! VASER LipoSelection is effective for areas such as the thighs, abdomen, and back. During this procedure, ultrasound energy is used to eliminate fat cells while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed; this results in less bruising and discomfort compared to more traditional liposuction procedures. The VASER LipoSelection procedure also promotes skin tightening weeks after your procedure for progressive, natural-looking results.
Achieve A Tight Physique!
SmartLipo is another advanced liposuction technique. This method uses lasers to tighten skin and eliminate stubborn fat. SmartLipo is perfect for patients who want to slim down and firm up the neck, buttocks, or upper arms. In addition, SmartLipo can fight cellulite! Our New York plastic surgeon can combine SmartLipo with Cellulaze treatment in order to tighten skin and reduce dimpling in areas like the upper thighs and buttocks caused by pockets of localized fat known as cellulite.
Our NY Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, and staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about VASER LipoSelection, SmartLipo, and our other liposuction procedures. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!
