New York Skin Care Tips to Safeguard Against Winter Weather!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, JANUARY 09, 2014 AT 6:23 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Winter weather can take a toll on the supple softness of your skin. Washing, moisturizing, and applying sunscreen to your face should be a part of your daily, morning routine, but during the winter, it’s especially important to remain as hydrated, moisturized, and protected against the sun’s harmful UV rays as you do during the summer. Check out our top three skin care tips to safeguard against the harsh weather this winter!

  1. Moisturize: Remember to moisturize and keep hydrated during the cold winter months! Skin can crack from being exposed to the cold temperature and winter elements, but a barrier repair cream can help chapped & wind-burned skin.
  2. Sun Protection: Use SPF sunscreen all year round! Although temperatures are cold, the sun’s harmful UV rays can damage your skin and increase your risk of cancer. If sunscreen irritates your skin, oil free brands can help keep your pores clear while still protecting your skin during the harsh winter months.
  3. Lips: Pucker up! Your lips are just as important to care for in the winter months as your hands and face! Use a repair cream, such as La Roche-Posay Ceralip, to hydrate severely dry lips. Lips already dried from acne treatment will especially benefit from this cream!

Safeguard against chapped lips and dry skin this winter! Whether you have typically dry or oily skin, acne, or a combination of skin concerns, Dr. Jody Levine can help you develop a skincare routine that meets your individual needs at Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC. Dr. Jody Levine and her staff will be happy to meet with you to discuss any questions you may have about winter skin care tips and the skin care products we provide. Please call our New York office at 212-988-1800, or request an appointment online for a personal consultation.

Countdown to smooth, glowing skin in time for 2014! A year of stress, sun-exposure, and gravity can really take a toll on your skin.

Photodynamic Therapy: Improve your skins overall appearance and treat the most common skin conditions with photodynamic therapy. Photodynamic therapy uses a photosensitizing solution to target specific areas of the skin. This dedicated solution targets abnormal skin cells, leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed.  

Photodynamic Therapy Treats:

  • Precancerous lesions
  • Acne inflammation
  • Sun damage

Learn more about photodynamic therapy and ask our NYC dermatologist if it is right for you.    

Laser Skin Resurfacing: Ever wish you could have both smoother AND younger looking skin? Now you can thanks to laser skin resurfacing. Laser skin resurfacing targets damaged skin and promotes collagen for improved skin elasticity and natural firmness.  

Laser Skin Resurfacing will:

  • Improve skin texture & tone
  • Reduces wrinkles
  • Reduce the appearance of acne scars
  • Promote healthier-looking skin

Learn more about laser skin resurfacing and ask our NYC dermatologist if laser skin treatments are right for you.    

Age Spot Removal: Turns out genetics aren’t the only culprit of age spots. Most age spots are caused by overexposure to the sun and/or tanning beds. When UV rays attack the skin, the production of melanin accelerates, creating a tan that helps protect the deeper layers of skin from damage. As a result, age spots may appear as melanin becomes clumped or is overly produced.

Using lasers and light based therapies however, dermatologists can break up excess pigmentation, reduce the appearance of age spots, and promote the body’s natural production of collagen. Learn more about age spot removal and ask our NYC dermatologist if laser age spot removal is right for you.     

Jump into the New Year with a confident, more youthful appearance! At Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, our staff and NYC dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, welcome any questions you may have about our laser skin care treatments and options.

Correcting Aging Eyes with Eyelid Surgery In New York

POSTED ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2013 AT 5:01 PM by Dr. Elie Levine

Perhaps one of the greatest gifts we take for granted, our eyes give us vision, personality, and emotion. The old time expression says that “eyes are the window to the soul,” but sometimes an aged appearance can cause a misperception of who we are before anyone ever gets the chance to look further. One of the most common causes of misperception is aging eyes. Eyes that are hollow, sunken, puffy, or wrinkled can add 10-15 years to your appearance and in more extreme cases, cause visual impairment. Luckily, you can correct aging eyes with both a variety of unique techniques, including non-invasive options and eyelid surgery. 

Non-Invasive options include:

BOTOX & Dermal Fillers: BOTOX cosmetic and dermal fillers are a viable option for patients who may not be ready for surgery. BOTOX for the eyelids will create subtle but natural changes, virtually subtracting years of frown lines from around the eyes and lifting the brow area. Fillers can aid in lifting the brow and fill in lower eyelid hollowness.

Fat Grafting: Fat grafting to the lower eyelids will bring fullness to sunken under eyes. Hollow eyes add years to your appearance. Filling in dense under eye areas improves both facial definition and rejuvenates the eyes.    

Laser Skin Resurfacing: A simpler, non-invasive option for eyelid rejuvenation, laser skin resurfacing will improve minor flaws, such as fine lines and wrinkles. Lasers skin resurfacing will tighten the skin and promote collagen.

For some patients, non-invasive options may not be enough to treat stubborn wrinkles, folds, and droops of the lower and upper eyelids. In these cases, our plastic surgeon, may suggest eyelid surgery. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both.   

Upper Eyelid Surgery: Removes excessive skin and some fat from the upper eyelids. Puffiness that occurs on the upper eyelids may cause you to look older and in some cases may impair vision as the eyelids drop over into your view of sight. Upper blepharoplasty will add an upper eyelid crease, improve hooding in the upper eyelids, and restore the natural contours of the upper eyelids.       

Lower Eyelid Surgery: Youthful eyes show fullness and definition. When your lower eyelids begin to sag, lower blepharoplasty will reshape the eyelids, giving you back beautiful, younger-looking eyes. Lower eyelid surgery is performed by repositioning the fat under the eyes and tightening the muscles and skin. Dr. Elie Levine will offer an approach that ensures the best and most natural-looking results.

Re-discover your youthful reflection and flaunt a look that echoes the age you truly feel inside. Our NY plastic surgeon  and NY dermatologist and staff welcome any questions you may have about our eyelid surgery in New York. Contact our office at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!
