Fractora™ Skin Tightening To Improve Complexion!

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2017 AT 9:58 AM by Dr. Jody Levine

Fractora™ is a revolutionary skin tightening treatment that can enhance skin texture and tone by targeting wrinkles, facial lines, furrows, acne scarring, blemishes, and pigmentation issues. The Fractora™ machine delivers radio frequency (RF) energy to the skin that resurfaces the initial skin layers and stimulates the production of new collagen to achieve a clearer, firmer-looking complexion. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we offer Fractora™ for patients looking to tighten skin without undergoing traditional facial surgery.

Fractora™ Skin Tightening Overview

Fractora™ uses specialized micro-pins that are applied to the skin during treatment. These pins deliver radio frequency energy to the surface layer of your skin, resurfacing damaged skin cells to allow for the growth of new, healthy skin cells. Additionally, radio frequency energy is transmitted from the micro-pins deep below to underlying skin layers, encouraging the production of new collagen fibers which can enhance skin structure and elasticity. Fractora™ can treat the upper, mid, and lower face, as well as different areas of the body.

Which Conditions Can Fractora™ Treat?

Fractora™ can improve the appearance of a variety of different skin conditions. Wrinkling, superficial fine lines, furrows, acne scarring, red spots, blemishes, and pigmentation issues can all be targeted using Fractora™ skin tightening.

What To Expect After Undergoing Fractora™ Treatment

Since Fractora™ is a minimally invasive skin resurfacing treatment, there is little-to-no healing time required. Mild bruising, swelling, or tenderness may occur for a few days. However, Fractora™ patients may resume daily activities immediately following treatment.

SculpSure™ To Slim Down Stubborn Fat This New Year!

POSTED ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 31, 2017 AT 11:03 AM by Dr. Jody Levine

Are you considering a body sculpting procedure this new year? At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we provide non-surgical treatments to achieve substantial body contouring results with no downtime, including the innovative non-invasive liposuction procedure, SculpSure™! SculpSure™ can add shape and definition non-surgically for patients bothered by stubborn body fat. This innovative liposuction treatment targets unwanted abdominal fat, love handles, flanks, and more for a firmer-looking physique. See how you can slim down stubborn fat cells this year with SculpSure™ treatment!

How Does SculpSure™ Eliminate Excess Fat?

SculpSure™ uses laser fat removal technology to address areas of excess fat around the body. Laser heat energy is delivered to the target area(s) using applicators that are placed on the skin. This energy disrupts fat cells, causing them to detach from surrounding tissues. Over time, your body will naturally process and remove these unwanted fat cells.

What Should I Expect After Undergoing SculpSure™ Treatment?

Since SculpSure™ is a non-invasive liposuction procedure, there is no recovery time and patients are free to return home the day of treatment. You can typically resume your daily activities immediately. SculpSure™ can achieve long-lasting, natural-looking improvements to body contours.

Introducing The Scarless Breast Lift To Raise & Firm The Breasts!

POSTED ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 24, 2017 AT 12:52 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

Introducing the scarless breast lift to raise the breasts without undergoing traditional breast lift surgery! This minimally invasive technique utilizes the revolutionary BodyTite™ system to carefully firm and lift drooping breast skin. Unlike traditional breast lift techniques, BodyTite™ recruits radio frequency (RF) energy to tighten lax skin with precision. Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC is proud to offer this innovative new treatment to patients seeking a minimally invasive solution to sagging breasts. Learn how BodyTite™ can lift the breasts below.

How Does The Scarless Breast Lift Work?

When performing a scarless breast lift, BodyTite™ technology is used to achieve efficient skin tightening results by delivering radio frequency (RF) energy beneath the skin to stimulate collagen and firm the breasts. During your procedure, the BodyTite™ electrode is applied to the treatment area, while the BodyTite™ cannula is carefully inserted beneath the skin through a 1-2 millimeter incision. The electrode and cannula work together to deliver radio frequency energy to the skin. This energy can achieve immediate skin contraction at the surface of your skin, while also encouraging the production of subsurface collagen fibers to improve skin structure.

Who Are Ideal Candidates For A Scarless Breast Lift?

Mothers who are experiencing sagging skin around the breasts after pregnancy or breast feeding may be ideal candidates for a scarless breast lift. Additionally, patients who would like to lift the breasts with minimal downtime and recovery may be candidates for the BodyTite™ breast lift.

What Kind Of Results Can I Expect?

The scarless breast lift can achieve long-lasting enhancements to breast contours. Patients can expect immediate skin firming benefits after undergoing treatment, with results continuing to improve in the subsequent months. Scarless breast lift patients experience minimal recovery and downtime and many patients can resume daily activities immediately following treatment.

Can I Combine My Scarless Breast Lift With Breast Augmentation?

Depending on the specifics of your procedure, the scarless breast lift may be combined with breast augmentation using breast implants or natural fat grafting to achieve substantial results.

NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, NYC plastic surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine and the staff at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about the scarless breast lift and BodyTite™ treatment. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!

How Kybella™ Can Treat Double Chin Without Surgery

POSTED ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2016 AT 2:37 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Kybella™ is the first and only injectable approved by the FDA to treat double chin! If you are bothered by excess fat below the chin (also known as submental fat), then you may be a candidate for this innovative treatment. Kybella™ can reduce the appearance of stubborn fat cells that build up around the chin and neck. These fat cells are often extremely difficult to address through traditional diet and exercise. As a result, double chin is one of the most common cosmetic concerns for patients. Kybella™ treatment can provide a long-lasting solution to submental fat for a shapelier, youthful-looking jawline. Learn how Kybella™ can treat double chin without surgery.

The Kybella™ Solution

The Kybella™ solution is made from deoxycholic acid, which is a substance found naturally in your body that helps process fat cells. During Kybella™ treatment, a series of small injections will be administered around the submental area. The specialized deoxycholic acid solution works by gradually targeting unwanted fat cells. Over time, these fat cells are broken down and naturally eliminated by your body. Each Kybella™ treatment takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and patients usually require 2-4 treatments spread one month apart from each other in order to achieve optimal results.

Kybella™ Results

Kybella™ can restore contours to the chin and neck by selectively eliminating unwanted fat from the submental area. Kybella™ results are long-lasting and patients can begin to see improvements to their chin and neck line in the weeks following treatment. Maintaining a consistent diet and exercise routine is recommended to further maximize your results.

Benefits Of Undergoing Kybella™ Treatment

Treatments last approximately 30 minutes

Long-lasting solution to unwanted submental fat

Virtually no downtime or recovery

Series of injections can deliver symmetrical results

Patients can resume daily activities immediately following Kybella™

Fat cells are naturally processed and eliminated by the body

NeoGraft To Restore An Attractive, Healthy Head Of Hair!

POSTED ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 12, 2016 AT 11:07 AM by Dr. Elie Levine

NeoGraft can restore a fuller, natural-looking head of hair this upcoming new year! Many patients struggle with hair loss due to aging or genetics. Both men and women can be affected by pattern baldness, which leads to areas of thinning hair over time. Hair loss can result in a drop in confidence and a willingness to cover up your hair under a cap or hat. NeoGraft hair restoration is designed to regrow your own hair to achieve natural-looking results. Below are 4 reasons why you should consider NeoGraft to restore a healthy, full head of hair.

1.) Specialized FUE Technique!

During your NeoGraft procedure, the hands-free follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique is used to carefully extract healthy hair follicles from areas of thickness (usually found at the back of the head). These follicles are then preserved before being precisely implanted into areas of thinning hair. The FUE technique allows for a quicker, more efficient hair transplant than previous hair surgery methods.

2.) Minimally Invasive Treatment!

NeoGraft is a minimally invasive hair restoration procedure that does not require incisions and avoids linear scarring. Patients can expect less downtime and recovery than traditional hair transplant techniques, as well as shorter procedure times.

3.) Long-Lasting Results!

NeoGraft hair restoration can achieve long-lasting improvements to the thickness of your hair. With a follicle survival rate over 90%, NeoGraft can provide natural-looking results to numerous areas of the scalp.

4.) Recent Survey Suggests A Hair Transplant Can Enhance Attractiveness!

A recently published study suggests that hair transplants can make patients look more attractive! During this study, participants were shown before and after pictures of men who had underwent a hair restoration procedure, as well as photos of patients who had not opted for hair restoration. The results concluded that the men who underwent hair transplants looked more youthful, successful, and approachable after hair transplant surgery.

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 NeoGraft, as well as any of our other hair restoration methods.
