Skin Deep Peels & Laser Acne Treatments in New York City

POSTED ON THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2013 AT 5:04 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Beauty may only be skin deep, but your skin’s appearance can directly affect your health, confidence, and well-being. A majority of the population suffers from acne, especially adolescents, but Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC treats patients of all ages, from infants to adults. Our New York Dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, can help reveal your inner beauty at any age. When acne persists into adulthood, you may want to consider laser treatments and chemical peels as options to restore both the youth and clarity to your skin.

Topical and oral medications are available treatments for persistent acne, as well as a proper skincare regimen.  In addition, our expert dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, offers laser acne treatment in New York City to minimize inflammation and scarring in adult patients. Although a combination of oral and topical treatments are still utilized, the addition of laser treatments to your skincare regiment can reduce breakouts and achieve smooth, healthy-looking skin. The laser targets both the surface skin and deeper tissue, encouraging the skin’s natural healing properties and increasing the production of collagen; your results will continuously improve even months after treatment.

Chemical peels in New York can also treat the appearance of acne. The chemicals used in our peels gently remove the outer, damaged layer of skin and stimulate the growth of new, healthier skin. Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC offers a variety of different peels tailored to fit your skincare needs, and Dr. Levine can recommend a specific chemical peel for you. Our treatment options include glycolic peels, salicylic peels, TCA peels, and specialty peels designed with your specific needs in mind.

Help Avoid Women’s Hair Loss with Tips to Maintain Healthy Hair

POSTED ON FRIDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2013 AT 1:11 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Do you worry about hair loss? Throughout the years, your hair will experience changes. At a younger age, in your twenties, hair is at its peak health and beauty. Unfortunately, as you age, you will experience changes in your hair’s texture, thickness, and color, as a result of lower estrogen levels.

Help promote your hair’s vitality and glimmer at any age by taking an adequate amount of vitamins, including protein.  Hair is made of a special protein called “keratin,” limiting the amount of protein in your diet will affect your hair cycle, decreasing growth. Avoid drying peroxide formulas and heat treatments to help prevent hair damage as well. If heat treatments must be used, a sealing treatment can help protect the cuticle.

A Boo-tiful Halloween with Dermal Fillers in New York!

POSTED ON THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2013 AT 4:39 PM by Dr. Jody Levine

Enjoy a boo-tiful Halloween with a look of youth and radiance! Halloween lets you easily disguise your appearance behind masks and make-up, but when you don’t look as young as you feel, revealing your real disguise may not lead to the confidence you once felt. Re-discover your gleaming reflection in time for Halloween and the upcoming holiday season with non-invasive dermal fillers, including Juvederm in New York!  

Fun-filled days, such as Halloween remind us of our days of youth. While you can try your best to keep the inner child alive, your outer appearance may often show an appearance that looks older than how you may actually feel. The natural aging process along with years of sun-exposure and lifestyle choices can lead to a loss of crucial skin elements, including one of the skin’s most essential ingredients, hyaluronic acid.

Hyaluronic acid is found naturally within the body. A prime component to keeping skin hydrated, HA is responsible for upholding skin elasticity, preventing worrisome wrinkles and folds. As HA diminishes however, skin begins to lack the hydration needed to stay moisturized, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of volume. Juvederm replenishes and rehydrates skin using an injectable gel made of hyaluronic acid. Unlike other dermal fillers, Juvederm uses cross-linked technology, resulting in smoother, more natural looking results. At Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, we offer Juvederm treatments for:

  • Nasolabial Folds
  • Smile Lines
  • Marionette Lines
  • Smokers Lines
  • Lost Cheek Volume
  • Dark Under Eye Circles
  • Lost Facial Volume         

FDA-approved, Juvederm injections last up approximately between 6-9 months. Because Juvederm is made from non-animal based hyaluronic acid, no allergy test is required prior to treatment.

Re-live your days of youth and be proud to reveal your real disguise with a rejuvenated appearance! Our NY dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, and our staff at Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC welcome any questions you may have about Juvederm or our any other dermal fillers we offer. Contact our NYC office today at 212.988.1800, or request an appointment online today for your personal consultation!
