POSTED ON THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2016 AT 5:38 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

The holiday season is quickly approaching, but there are still plenty of ways to look and feel your best in time for the upcoming festivities! At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, we offer a variety of non-invasive treatments for patients who want to achieve natural-looking results without significant downtime or recovery. Those who would like to slim down the body can opt for SculpSure™–a completely non-surgical procedure that removes stubborn fat cells. Moreover, patients struggling with underarm sweat and deodorant stains can undergo miraDry® treatment to eliminate sweat glands under the arms. New York dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, performs these cutting-edge procedures in the comfort of our in-office treatment rooms.

Slim Down For The Holidays!

SculpSure™ uses laser fat removal technology to eliminate unwanted fat cells from the body. The SculpSure™ machine is equipped with 4 specialized applicators that are placed above the target area(s). Laser energy is delivered to disrupt excess fat cells, leading to their detachment from surrounding tissue. Once detached, these cells are then processed and naturally removed from your body over time!

SculpSure™ requires no downtime following your procedure, allowing patients to return to their daily routines immediately. Results are long-lasting and can be seen in subsequent weeks. To complement their body sculpting results, patients are encouraged to maintain a healthy lifestyle—complete with a steady diet and exercise plan.

Eliminate Excessive Underarm Sweat!

MiraDry® is designed to address excess underarm sweating, as well as unsightly deodorant stains. This non-surgical treatment targets sweat glands underneath the arms and gently positions them closer to the surface. MiraWave™ energy is then delivered, eliminating odor-causing glands and sweat-causing glands. In addition to reducing excessive sweating, miraDry® also eliminates the need for deodorant or antiperspirant!

MiraDry® is completely non-invasive, meaning patients do not need to contend with lengthy healing or recovery times. You can expect to see results within weeks of your miraDry® treatment.

MiraDry® & SculpSure™ To Get Ready For Summer!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, MAY 19, 2016 AT 6:17 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

With the warmer weather on its way, now is the time to prepare for the summer months with a few non-invasive treatments! For those struggling with underarm sweat and deodorant stains, miraDry® is FDA-approved to eliminate excess sweat glands in under 30 minutes. Patients no longer need to apply antiperspirant. If slimming down for summer is your goal, then SculpSure™ may be right for you. This non-surgical laser fat reduction technique can remove troublesome fat pockets around the body to get ready for beach season. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, Dr. Jody Levine offers both miraDry® and SculpSure™ for patients looking to prepare for summer!

Say Goodbye To Underarm Sweat!

MiraDry® is a non-invasive procedure that targets excess sweat glands around the armpits. During your procedure, the miraDry® hand-piece gently suctions sweat glands closer to the surface. Next, specialized miraWave™ energy is delivered to the target area to eliminate sweat glands. Cooling technology soothes the surface of your skin during treatment to reduce any discomfort. MiraDry® targets both eccrine glands (which cause sweat) and apocrine glands (which cause odor), meaning patients no longer need to wear deodorant to combat these effects! Results are long-lasting and many patients see an immediate reduction in underarm sweat and odor.

Eliminate Stubborn Fat!

SculpSure™ can remove fat deposits around the body without the need for incisions or downtime.  This laser fat removal procedure uses special applicators that deliver heat energy, causing a disruption to excess fat cells. First, these applicators are placed above the treatment area(s). After being positioned, laser heat energy is delivered to stubborn fat cells, causing them to detach from your surrounding tissue. Over time, these fat cells are naturally removed by your body! Any discomfort during your SculpSure™ procedure is minimized, thanks to a cooling mechanism that soothes the surface of your skin. Patients usually see long-lasting improvements to their figure after undergoing SculpSure™ treatment. Maintaining a healthy diet and consistent exercise is recommended to sustain your body contouring results.

Put an End to Underarm Sweat and Odor with miraDry®!

POSTED ON MONDAY, FEBRUARY 29, 2016 AT 9:46 AM by Dr. Jody Levine

Are you tired of worrying about embarrassing underarm stains or odor after a long day? The hustle and bustle of a day-to-day routine can cause you to work up a sweat, as can a few hours at the gym. In addition, stress, anxiety, and nervousness can contribute to excessive sweating. For some, underarm sweating may result in a hesitance to partake in your normal activities or wear your favorite outfits, for fear of revealing unsightly sweat stains underneath. To combat these effects, patients often apply an excessive amount of deodorant under the arms. Unfortunately, too much deodorant can also cause stains, in the form of white, chalky lines on your clothes that may make you even more self-conscious about your look.

For those suffering from underarm sweat, odor, and deodorant stains, there is finally a long-term solution! MiraDry® is the first FDA-approved treatment to put an end to armpit sweat and odor. Patients who opt for miraDry® can eliminate sweat stains under the arms and no longer need to apply deodorant! At Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, Drs. Jody and Elie Levine offer miraDry® treatment to provide long-lasting sweat and odor relief.

How Does MiraDry® Work?

MiraDry® reduces armpit sweat and odor by targeting both eccrine glands (sweat-causing glands) and apocrine glands (odor-causing glands). The miraDry® system positions underarm glands closer to the surface of your skin through suctioning. Once in place, miraDry® delivers specialized miraWave™ energy to effectively eliminate odor-causing and sweat-causing glands for long-lasting results. Specialized cooling technology helps soothe the skin during your miraDry® treatment.

Stay Deodorant Free! Stop Underarm Sweat and Odor with miraDry®

POSTED ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2015 AT 10:34 AM by Dr. Jody Levine

Is unsightly sweat keeping you from enjoying your favorite clothing or social gatherings with confidence? Underarm sweating can result in embarrassing wetness and odor, as well as rashes or irritation. Additionally, for many, combating sweating with deodorant may leave white antiperspirant stains on clothes, impacting self-esteem. Patients may be hesitant to wear their favorite outfits for fear of unattractive stains caused by both underarm sweat and excessive use of deodorant. Moreover, excessive sweating can result in unwanted stress, leading to further perspiration.

However, did you know there is a long-term solution to underarm sweating? Introducing miraDry®: the first FDA-approved treatment to eliminate the burdensome effects of armpit sweating, as well as the need for deodorant. Here at Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, our New York dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, is proud to offer this non-surgical procedure for those looking to say goodbye to underarm sweat and antiperspirant.

How MiraDry® Works:

MiraDry® is specially designed to eliminate excess sweat glands under the arms that cause perspiration. The miraDry® system uses focused miraWave™ energy to gradually destroy sweat glands during treatment. First, the miraDry® hand-piece is applied to the skin and uses suctioning to position perspiration glands closer to the skin’s surface. Once sweat glands are optimally positioned, the miraDry® system sends waves of concentrated energy to the armpit area, while simultaneously providing a cooling sensation to minimize pain or discomfort. As sweat glands are exposed to the miraWave™ energy, they are gradually eliminated.

Why Undergo MiraDry® Treatment?

MiraDry® can effectively destroy both eccrine glands (perspiration-causing glands) and apocrine glands (odor-causing glands)—making miraDry® an ideal procedure for patients suffering from sweat stains and/or odor. After undergoing miraDry® treatment, patients no longer need to apply deodorant! Additionally, miraDry® can remove troublesome armpit hair, as hair follicles are also targeted during the procedure.

How Long Does MiraDry® Last?

MiraDry® is shown to provide long-lasting sweat relief because excess sweat glands are permanently removed during the procedure. However, individual results vary by patient. Dr. Levine will discuss your specific goals to create an ideal treatment schedule that will yield optimal 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 miraDry®. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!

Beat the Summer Heat with Minimally Invasive Treatments

POSTED ON THURSDAY, JULY 17, 2014 AT 5:15 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Summer is in full swing! Although the warm, summer sun baking on your body is a welcomed part of the season, it may be having some unwelcoming affects, such as revealing excessive sweating and unwanted hair growth usually covered by garments. Our NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, offers minimally invasive procedures to eliminate sweating and remove unwanted hair growth. These procedures are a solution to help you look and feel better for summer!

Botox for Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis, commonly referred to as excessive sweating, can affect your underarms, the palms of your hands, and the soles of your feet. Not only is excessive sweating embarrassing, it can also cause rashes, stain clothing, and make social gatherings a stressful occurrence. Although you may sweat most of the time, the summer season brings warmer weather, increasing the occurrences and intensity of sweating. Our dermatologist, Dr. Levine, performs Botox treatment for hyperhidrosis. This natural, purified protein is injected into affected areas. Botox blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate sweat glands and thereby stops the production of sweat. The procedure is outpatient, lasting only twenty minutes and requires zero downtime. The treatment will initially need to be repeated a few times a year, but within time, the frequency of treatments will decrease.

Laser Hair Removal

Shaving, plucking, and waxing are common methods of hair removal that are time consuming, ineffective, and leave your skin feeling soft for only a short period of time. Using a laser-emitted, pulsated light, laser hair removal is able to absorb the pigment in the hair, transmitted all the way down to the root. The heat produced by the laser damages the unwanted hair follicle, inhibiting future hair growth. Laser hair removal is often used by women to decrease hair growth in the legs, armpits, face, and bikini line, allowing for a more flawless appearance and eliminating ingrowns. Laser hair removal is virtually painless, with the laser treatment described as a “pin prick” or “prickling”. Results from laser hair removal vary, and a series of multiple treatments are required to achieve long lasting results.

We can help you look and feel more confident for summer with minimally invasive laser hair removal in NYC and Botox Hyperhidrosis treatment! 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 these treatments. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!
