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.

Though acne is commonly associated with adolescence and puberty, many adults also suffer from acne well into their 30s and beyond. Multiple factors can contribute to breakouts, including genetics, stress, certain skin care products, and hormone levels. In light of these factors, dedicating the time to properly take care of your skin plays a key factor in keeping a clear complexion. If you’re suffering from stubborn acne inflammation or acne scars, New York dermatologist Dr. Jody Levine of Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC offers various skin treatments to reduce the effects of acne.
Reduce Acne Scarring And Inflammation With Laser Acne Treatments!
Laser acne treatment can reduce troublesome scars and inflammation caused by acne. For some patients, acne can be resistant to traditional oral or topical medications. Laser acne treatment can improve inflammation by reducing the size of oil glands that contribute to blocked pores. Our NYC dermatologist can treat even the most persistent acne with photodynamic therapy and LED treatments.
For some, years of struggling with acne can lead to acne scarring, as popping pimples and frequent picking result in scars that detract from your complexion. Lasers can treat acne scars by focusing on the surface of the skin, as well as underlying layers. Laser skin resurfacing techniques target the initial layers of acne-damaged skin, regenerating fresh skin cells for a healthy and smoother-looking complexion. Additionally, laser heat energy promotes collagen growth that leads to skin tightening benefits.
Clear Your Complexion With A Chemical Peel!
Chemical peels are an effective way to improve the appearance of your skin while reducing acne and acne scarring. Chemical peels are designed to remove dead skin cells from the surface of skin to clear clogged pores that can contribute to breakouts. Chemical peels can also treat fine lines, blemishes, dry patches, and uneven pigmentation. Undergoing a series of chemical peels can help stimulate collagen production in the deep dermis that contributes to firmer, healthier-looking skin.
Prevent Future Breakouts By Developing A Proper Skin Care Routine!
Developing an efficient skin care routine is essential to maintaining the glowing results from laser acne treatment and chemical peels! Choosing the proper skin care products that are ideal for your specific skin type can help prevent future breakouts and contribute to the long-lasting results of your laser acne treatment or chemical peel. We offer an assortment of skin care treatments to keep your complexion looking fresh. Our skin care experts would be happy to discuss which skin care products are ideal for you.

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!

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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
