Are You Guilty Of Skin Picking?

POSTED ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 11, 2013 AT 1:20 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

The arrival of an unexpected blackhead or acne marks always seems to hit us right before an important date in our lives. Whether you’re going to your first job interview, starting a new date, about to give a major presentation, or about to get married, these unwanted marks won’t shy away. Even if you don’t have an important event coming up however, acne, blackheads, callus’, and scabs on the face are never welcomed.

Most of us try our hardest to make these unwanted marks vanish. In fact, many are guilty of skin picking. For some however, repeatedly touching, rubbing, scratching, picking, or digging into the skin can cause a medical condition, known as Chronic Skin Picking. NY Dermatologist, Dr. Jody A. Levine offers some insight into this condition in New Beauty magazine’s feature article, “Skin Picking: It’s More Serious Than You Think.” Click on the link below to learn more about this condition and what Dr. Levine has to say.

Cellulaze® NYC, The No Scar Cellulite Treatment!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, DECEMBER 27, 2012 AT 4:33 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

Cellulite affects the majority of the adult female population, roughly more than 85%! Diet and exercise largely remain ineffective in preventing and diminishing the appearance of cellulite because cellulite forms from the architecture that surrounds the fat cells being stored, not simply the fat cells themselves. Because of this, the healthiest diet and exercise program cannot hope to achieve the results that Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC can achieve through a combination of liposuction, fat grafting, and the newest, minimally invasive procedure in the fight against cellulite, Cellulaze®!

Traditional surgery, such as the lower body lift or thigh lift, can provide beautiful results, but also entail a lengthy recovery and permanent scarring.  If you are dissatisfied by the appearance of your legs and are seeking a less invasive, no scar cellulite treatment option, you may be an ideal candidate for Cellulaze® in NYC. This less invasive cellulite treatment uses SideLight™ 3D technology to target the three causes of cellulite beneath the skin’s surface: pockets of fat, connective tissue bands, and thin skin.

  •  Pockets Of Fat: The Cellulaze® SideLight™ laser targets bulging pockets of fat that cause the appearance of bumps and lumps typical of cellulite.
  • Connective Tissue Bands: Fibrous septae, or connective tissue, hold fat within these herniated, bulging pockets. Cellulaze®’s revolutionary thermal technology subcises these connective tissues, so fat can lay in a smooth layer below the skin’s surface.
  • Thin Skin: The SideLight™ laser stimulates the production of collagen, tightening skin and enhancing skin elasticity, tone, and texture for weeks following the procedure, so as time passes, your skin continues to tighten and smooth!

Fitting into last year’s winter outfits can be distressful if clothes that once looked great now appear unflattering because of the bumps and lumps of cellulite. Consider Cellulaze® in New York, the less invasive cellulite treatment option, to smooth your way to more shapely thighs.  Dr. Elie Levine and his staff will be happy to meet with you to discuss any questions you may have about Cellulaze® in NYC.

The Gift of Youth with Skin Tightening New York!

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2012 AT 5:52 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Treat yourself to a younger look this holiday season! Rejuvenate your appearance with skin tightening in New York! One of the best-kept secrets to looking young without the invasive surgery, skin tightening uses revolutionary laser technology to firm skin safely, comfortably, and without prolonged downtime. Skin tightening is perfect for those looking to firm skin who don’t necessarily require fat removal. At the office of Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, PLLC, our Board Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Jody A. Levine performs laser skin tightening in New York. Dr. Levine is one of the most experienced laser experts in New York. In addition to serving as a luminary for Sciton Lasers, she has lectured other physicians around the country on laser skin tightening and remains at the forefront of helping patients re-discover their youth through less invasive laser treatments.

When opting for skin tightening in New York, patients may choose between the SkinTyte™ laser and the SmartLipo™ laser system. These laser skin tightening treatments use advanced laser technology to help stimulate the growth of lost collagen, essential for facial support and firmness. Understanding the similarities and differences between each will better assist you when it comes to choosing the correct treatment option for you.

Using laser light energy, both the SkinTyte ™ and SmartLipo™ laser systems work to stimulate collagen and promote the body’s natural healing process. While both safely and effectively monitor the temperature of the lasers, they hold differences in the way their lasers are used during treatment. 

SkinTyte laser skin tightening  cools and maintains temperature on the outer surface of the skin. Using pulsed light technology, the SkinTyte™ laser both heats the skin and cools the treated surface. Since the SkinTyte works above the dermis, it can be performed quickly and comfortably without the use of anesthesia.  In addition, SkinTyte laser skin tightening can help treat fine lines, enlarged pores, stretch marks, and mild to moderate acne scarring. SkinTyte requires 3 to 4 treatments spaced out between 1 to 4 weeks.

In comparison, SmartLipo™ laser skin tightening  works beneath the skin’s layers to remove small amounts of excess fat in targeted areas while promoting the growth of collagen. SmartLipo is ideal for improving the contours of the face, neck, and body. Performed under local anesthesia, patients can return to their activities only a few days after their treatment.   In addition, SmartLipo™ can be used along with traditional or laser liposuction. Unlike the SkinTyte laser, SmartLipo requires one treatment to achieve long-lasting results. 


Achieve the gift of youth, without the long recovery or invasive procedures! Learn more about skin tightening in New York and if it is right for you. Dr. Jody Levine and her staff will be happy to meet with you to discuss any questions you may have about skin tightening in New York. Please call our New York office at 212-988-1800, or request an appointment online for a personal consultation.
