Blepharoplasty & Non-Surgical Summer Repairs for Wrinkles!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, JULY 16, 2015 AT 7:18 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

Summer’s in full swing, which means you want to look your best! While this is the time to enjoy the warm weather, too much sun may be contributing to facial wrinkling and lax skin. Squinting into the summer sun can create or worsen conditions like under eye bags, drooping lids, and crow’s feet. Here at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, plastic surgeon Dr. Elie Levine offers blepharoplasty, along with dermal fillers, to rejuvenate all areas of the face and achieve a younger-looking you.

Eliminate Under Eye Bags And Drooping Eyelids!

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can correct lax or excess skin around the eyes. Using the latest surgical techniques, our NYC plastic surgeon can achieve extremely precise results by either removing or repositioning loose skin and fat near the upper or lower eyelids. Correcting any bagging, hollowing, or bulging can give a smooth, youthful appearance and restore the eyes to a more natural-looking and vibrant state. Blepharoplasty can also be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as a facelift, laser skin resurfacing, or browlift, to ensure the best results.

Improve Skin Texture And Replenish Lost Facial Volume!

Does your appearance make you look older than you actually feel? Factors like overexposure to sunlight, aging, and facial expressions can lead to increased facial wrinkling, hollows, and lines that may result in a worn appearance. A gradual loss of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid in the skin can lead to increased laxity and large creases.

Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC offers a variety of non-surgical treatments to rejuvenate skin! Conditions such as crow’s feet, facial wrinkling, and loss of facial volume or skin texture can be addressed with various treatment options, as there is no specific treatment method for each condition. Rather, Dr. Elie Levine provides personalized solutions to fit each patient’s individual needs and may utilize a combination of different facial rejuvenation procedures to achieve optimal results. The following are just some of our innovative facial rejuvenation solutions.

BOTOX can relax facial lines and smooth creases around the forehead, eyes, and mouth, among others. Different treatments, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and Xeomin®, can be used to treat your specific needs.

Laser skin resurfacing is another non-surgical solution to worn skin! Laser skin resurfacing can be used to target both the surface layer of skin and underlying layers. Dr. Elie Levine uses the PicoSure® laser to deliver precise laser treatment that encourages the growth of fresh skin cells and increases natural collagen production within the body.

Dermal fillers can improve skin texture and restore lost facial volume. Dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid—a natural sugar found in the body—to add volume to facial folds, smooth wrinkles, and correct hollows to restore a youthful appearance.

Treatments for Smooth, Beautiful Skin for Your Upcoming Getaway!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, JULY 02, 2015 AT 5:40 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Happy Independence Day, from Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC! It’s time to start thinking about that summer getaway. Do you want smooth skin in time for vacation? NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, offers a variety of skin treatments for clear, beautiful skin. Laser hair removal can permanently remove unsightly hairs so you can flaunt that bikini, while our ThermaScan laser treatment can keep skin looking acne-free!

Zap Unwanted Hair At The Root!

The Vectus® Laser is the latest tool in laser hair removal! The Vectus® uses Photon Recycling™ to remove hair quickly and with less skin irritation than more traditional hair removal methods. By transferring light down the shaft of the hair, the Vectus destroys follicles at the root. Vectus laser hair removal can target any areas of hair growth on the body, from concentrated areas to larger, more expansive body parts, such as the back and chest. The Vectus® also contains a Skintel™ Melanin Reader™ that can measure the average amount of melanin in your skin—determining your recommended treatment setting. This allows for personalized and more efficient care.

Control Acne and Oily Skin!              

If you’re not seeing the results you want with traditional acne solutions, then consider laser acne treatment! ThermaScan laser treatment penetrates deep into the skin to promote new collagen growth and reduce oil production in as little as 30 minutes a treatment. Not only can ThermaScan be used to treat facial acne, but it can also be used as a solution to acne on the back and chest. This non-invasive treatment has virtually no downtime and you can resume daily activities immediately.

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 laser hair removal and laser acne treatment. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!

The Most Advanced Hair Restoration Options for Men!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, JUNE 18, 2015 AT 1:52 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

Father’s Day is almost here, and we’d like to wish all fathers and grandfathers out there a Happy Father’s Day, including our board certified plastic surgeon and revered hair specialist, Dr. Elie Levine! With Father’s Day comes the official arrival of summer.

However, if you hair is thinning, traditional balding solutions may keep you from enjoying a day at the pool. Toupees and spray-on hair products only mask the appearance of balding. Worse, they cannot get wet like your natural hair. Our hair doctor at NYC Hair Restoration offers NeoGraft and hair transplant options for men that actually regrow your natural hair, so you can enjoy some fun in the sun this summer.

NeoGraft is an innovative hair restoration technique designed to achieve natural-looking, healthy hair with unparalled precision! During the procedure, hair follicles are harvested “hands free” with the help of an automated system. These follicles are then kept in a moist environment to ensure they remain healthy during graft preparation. Follicles are then placed at the crown and hairline with stunning accuracy.

During the NeoGraft procedure, many patients choose to enjoy leisure activites, such as listening to music or reading a book. NeoGraft is a minimally invasive treatment and there is no scarring and little downtime afterward!

Having a great head of hair extends beyond your appearance. Feeling self-conscious about your hair can affect your self-esteem and hinder you from enjoying your favorite summer activities. Our innovative hair restoration options can provide natural-looking results and restore confidence in your look.

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 our NeoGraft and Linear Strip Method procedures, as well as any other hair restoration methods. Contact our office at 1.800.755.4247 or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!

Dr. Jody’s Summer Tips for Fresh-looking Skin!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, JUNE 11, 2015 AT 3:12 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

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!

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 skin care, sun damage, and acne treatments. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!
