Which Dermatological Treatment Is Right for Your Child?

POSTED ON FRIDAY, MAY 08, 2015 AT 10:06 AM by Dr. Jody Levine

Mother’s Day is nearly here! In honor of this very special day, we’d like to wish all mothers and grandmothers a happy and healthy Mother’s Day, including our very own, double board certified pediatric dermatologist Dr. Jody Levine. As all mothers know, our children’s health comes first. As they grow, their skin manifests the various developmental and hormonal changes that are taking place. Dr. Levine offers a wide range of medical, surgical, and laser treatments for the entire family. Infants, adolescents, and teens are welcomed into our child-focused environment as our team provides personalized care.

Medical Treatments

Skin conditions such as eczema, impetigo, and allergic rashes can be treated medically. Topical treatments, prescription medication, and even over-the-counter remedies can help ease symptoms and fight infections. If your child suffers from conditions such as sores, rashes, bumps, or redness and itching, medical treatment may be the best course of action.

Surgical Solutions

Skin growths and markings should be evaluated by a dermatologist to determine whether or not treatment is necessary. Dr. Levine offers a wide range of pediatric surgeries to treat skin irregularities. Conditions such as benign and concerning skin growths, cysts, and lipomas can be safely removed in our in-office AAAASF accredited operating suite.

Laser Procedures

Advanced laser technology allows for innovative treatment options for conditions such as acne and hair loss, as well as vascular lesions. If your child has tried traditional approaches to conditions like acne without experiencing any major improvements, then laser treatment may be the right option.

Our NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, NY Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, and staff at Pediatric Dermatology NYC welcome any questions you may have about our medical, surgical, and laser pediatric dermatological treatments. Contact our office at 212.988.1123, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!

Treat Acne In Time for the Spring Season!

POSTED ON TUESDAY, APRIL 28, 2015 AT 2:06 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

May is on the horizon, and the time for proms, dances, and graduations is approaching. With so many formal events occurring and pictures being taken, it’s normal that your teenagers may be extra sensitive to their skin’s appearance. Here at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we offer a variety of skin care treatments to help keep acne in check. Here’s some advice on how to capture the moment with clear skin!

Develop a Proper Routine

One of the most crucial aspects of skin care is home-care. Choosing the right skin care products for your skin and developing a daily regimen can keep blemishes at bay. Our toners, cleansers, and exfoliators are hand-picked to ensure success. Remember! Keeping acne-free skin starts with a little self-care.

Renew Your Skin

Sometimes, however, additional treatments are necessary to stop acne in its tracks and refresh your skin. Try a medical-grade chemical peel or laser peel to improve your skin’s texture and appearance. These treatments not only remove dead cells on the surface of your skin, but they also can help stimulate new collagen production underneath to dissolve acne, blemishes, or uneven pigmentation. Our New York dermatologists offer a variety of peels, ranging from superficial to deeper treatments.

Zap Stubborn Acne

For some, acne is resistant to topical treatments. In this case, we recommend laser acne treatment for acne inflammation and scarring. Our NY dermatologists use both lasers and light-based systems to prevent blockages in your pores and stop lesion-forming bacteria from growing. With photodynamic therapy, LED treatments and ThermaScan available, you can treat even the most persistent of acne.

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 our skin care treatments, including our chemical peels, laser peels, and laser acne treatment. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!

Vectra 3D Imaging to Enhance Breast Augmentation Results!

POSTED ON FRIDAY, APRIL 24, 2015 AT 5:24 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

Spring has officially arrived! It’s time to put away multiple layers of clothes and transform into a new you! If you’re not satisfied with your current curves, consider our breast augmentation procedure to achieve the results you desire. Thanks to technological innovations, breast implant procedures have never been more precise! Here at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we can help you visualize your results before undergoing surgery. Thanks to our state of the art Vectra 3D Imaging technology, you can visualize your desired results.

Mapping Your Physique

Our aesthetic simulation technology starts by mapping your current shape in order to produce high-quality 3D images of your body. These photos are conducted in the privacy of our office and are the foundation for your upcoming breast implant procedure because they provide the “before” model that our New York plastic surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, builds upon to create your 3D simulation.

Sculpting Your Desired Results

Next, Dr. Levine will use Simulation Sculptor Software to modify the 3D rendering of your “before” physique. Our surgeon will change the 3D images to reflect the expected results of your breast augmentation. You can see how implants will enhance your appearance to reflect the type of breasts you desire. Breasts can be enlarged, shaped, or even lifted until you are satisfied with the changes. You are in control of your results! In addition, our surgeon can better understand the exact results you’re looking for by seeing your changes mapped out on screen.

Developing a Plan of Action

After creating the perfect “after” image, our NY plastic surgeon can develop a personalized surgical plan to bring the results laid out on our Vectra 3D mappings to life. While results may not be completely identical to the 3D rendering, our Vectra 3D and breast augmentation technology work together to achieve the most accurate results possible—making your dream body become reality!

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 our breast augmentation procedures, as well as our Vectra 3D Imaging technology. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!

Facelift and Neck Lift Procedures For a More Youthful Appearance!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, MARCH 19, 2015 AT 5:36 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

As the warm weather approaches, you’ll be leaving behind sweaters, scarves and other cold weather clothes in favor of your favorite spring wear! However, as the layers disappear, you may find that you are self-conscious of what’s underneath—specifically sagging skin in the neck area.

Also known as “turkey neck,” this condition is characterized by excess neck skin that sags to the middle of the neck area, leaving you feeling uncomfortable with your appearance. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we can combine our neck lift and facelift procedures to smooth neck lines and restore your skin to a more youthful appearance!

We consider the neck to be part of your overall facial profile. Excess skin in the neck area can take away from the youthfulness in your face, and vice versa. To combat loose skin and excess fatty deposits on your neckline, consider one of our neck lift procedures. We offer liposuction for a simple slimming and shaping of the neck, as well as more advanced procedures for excess skin and soft tissues.

Our neck lift procedure can tighten skin to create not only a sharper neck line, but also to improve the definition of your jaw to enhance your expression! In addition, our New York Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, offers the revolutionary LazerLift procedure to remove sagging skin without scalpels, stitches, or scars! LazerLift uses precise laser technology to tighten skin and promote structural lifting in as little as half an hour.

Even after undergoing LazerLift or a neck lift procedure, however, sagging in the cheeks or excessive facial wrinkles can negate those great results! To combat this possibility, patients often combine their neck lift procedure with a facelift in order to balance out their expression. A facelift can correct these issues and elevate the face’s soft tissue to achieve a more natural and youthful look. By combining our facelift procedures with a neck lift, you can improve your entire profile at once!

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 our neck lift or facelift procedures. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!

Cosmetic Injectables to Redefine Your Expression!

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, MARCH 11, 2015 AT 3:19 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Spring is on the horizon and it’s time to rejuvenate your expression! As we age, our skin begins to produce less of the necessary proteins and sugars to maintain a youthful complexion. As skin starts to thin and lose elasticity, wrinkles begin to appear. External factors like sun exposure and the environment can also slow the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid—leaving you wanting to cover up your expression. Did you know that there is a solution? Cosmetic injectables can produce results with no scarring or stiches and virtually no downtime. Here at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, our fillers can revitalize any part of your face, from your eyes to your jawline.

Add Youthfulness To Your Expression

Suffering from under eye hollowness? Loss of volume under the eye occurs with aging, resulting in the appearance of sunken eyes that can prevent you from looking your best. Belotero adds volume and fills hollows to produce a more refreshed and youthful look!

Restore Volume To Your Cheeks

Your cheeks can also suffer from loss of volume. The appearance of cheek lines can make your face appear hollow and worn. Voluma XC is designed to work in the deeper layers of the upper cheeks to add firmness and volume to gaunt areas. Patients can also combine Voluma with Sculptra treatment, which is designed to encourage new collagen production in the cheeks to reinforce your skin’s firmness!

Volumize Your Lips

Consider Juvederm for a full pout. Juvederm is made from hyaluronic acid—a natural substance produced by the body that is responsible for keeping your face hydrated and looking fresh. A few injections can produce plump lips to accentuate your expression!

Define Your Jawline

A strong jaw commands confidence and attention. Our Radiesse treatment not only replaces lost volume in the jaw and chin, but it also rebuilds the structure of these areas with natural collagen found in the body! Radiesse is one of the longest lasting fillers and can add fullness for a sculpted, more defined jawline.

Our variety of cosmetic injectables can revitalize any part of your expression. With regular appointments, you can keep your appearance looking fresh for years to come! 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 our Belotero, Voluma XC, Sculptra, Juvederm, and Radiesse treatments, as well as any of our other cosmetic injectables. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!
