Spider Vein Treatment ManhattanSpider veins, or telangiectasias, are small, thin blood vessels visible beneath the skin. They appear most commonly on the face and legs and may look like a series of lines, tree branches, or spider/web like shapes with a dark center. It is estimated that they affect nearly half of adult women in the u.S. spider veins are caused by a variety of factors, including heredity, pregnancy, weight gain, long periods of standing, and certain medications. They often appear red or blue, and because they form on the face, thighs, calves and ankles, many patients are bothered by the way they look. Others seek medical treatment for uncomfortable symptoms such as aching, burning, swelling, and cramping. New technology allows us to treat spider veins without surgery or an extended hospital stay and long recovery. Laser ablation takes only 45 minutes in two sessions. The procedure is painless and does not require anesthesia. The laser aims carefully controlled pulses of narrow-wavelength light at the damaged veins. The veins absorb the light and heat up, then collapse and close. They are then gradually re-absorbed by the body. Normal activities can be resumed immediately.
Sclerotherapy ManhattanSclerotherapy is the standard treatment for varicose and spider veins. A special sclerosing solution is injected into the diseased vein, which then collapses and is gradually absorbed by the body. By the end of the treatment program, the veins are less visible on the skin surface. Sclerotherapy usually also relieves symptoms associated with enlarged veins and prevents further complications.
Aurora - Pigmented Lesions / Sun Damage / Telangiectasia ManhattanThe aurora laser is the newest development in skin technology powered by (elos). Unlike other laser and light based technology which use only one energy source, the aurora combines light and radiofrequency energies to get superior results with lower overall energy output which provides the highest level of safety and comfort to the patient. The combined bi-polar radio frequency energies of elos technology precisely target pigmented lesions such as freckles, sun spots and age spots. Vascular lesions such as spider veins and redness from rosacea are also lightened and gradually fade. There is virtually no down time with this treatment. An added benefit is that it is not painful, especially when we use a topical anesthetic.
Aurora SystemIntense pulse light and radiofrequency laser gets rid of freckles, sun spots, little vessels around the nose and reduce redness over the face.
Etwo - Complete Facial RejuvinationSublime and sublative revolutionary combination of lasers is non-invasive, effective on all skin types and requires minimal downtime. The sublime technology uses the elos combination of ir and bi-polar rf to provide controlled deep dermal heating. This heating of the deep dermis both stimulates and shortens aged collagen fibers, resulting in immediate and longterm improvement of wrinkles and facial contour. Sublative technology delivers bipolar radiofrequency energy. The fractional delivery of rf energy causes micro-epidermal ablative injuries with wider-spread dermal coagulation. This initiates a strong wound healing response in the dermal matrix leading to a smoother, rejuvinated appearance of the skin.
Emax - Fine Lines and Wrinkles ManhattanThe elos technology is the safest, most effective and comfortable aesthetic technology available. Emax is an elos product that can treat a wide range of hair colors, skin tone, and skin texture. This unique combination of radio frequency and infra-red light isolate the treatment area and leave the surrounding skin free from potentially harmful side effects. This unique heating produces results at both the surface and deep dermal levels. The two technologies tighten and lift the skin and create a non-surgical face-lift. Because of this, emax can be used to perform the refirme skin tightening treatment. Fda-approved, refirme anti-aging treatments lift and smooth the skin to achieve non-invasive facial rejuvenation by targeting loose skin on the jowls and neck, sagging areas under the eyes, drooping brow lines, and prominent nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth). After treatment, the skin becomes noticeably smoother, more luminous and toned. Refirme treatments are fast, safe, virtually painless and effective, and require no downtime. They can be used on the face, neck, upper arms, abdomen and knees.
Fractional Co2 Resurfacing ManhattanMatrix is a unique noninvasive laser therapy designed to dramatically improve skin texture and pigmentation, including the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, surgical scars, and sun damage. Matrix utilizes fractional resurfacing technology, where only a small fraction of the skin receives the laser light. The treatment delivers a series of microscopic laser spots, while simultaneously preserving areas of unaffected, healthy skin. The healthy cells in the untouched spots promote rapid healing of the entire area, resulting in faster recovery time and minimal side effects. The result is softer, smoother and healthier skin without an uncomfortable healing period.
Fraxel Re:Store DualThis new technology offers patients a new process that can achieve results comparable to superficial fractional co2 treatments with minimal down time.This revolutionary technology is able to precisely treat thousands of microscopic areas of skin, using pinpoint laser beams that penetrate beneath the skins surface to eliminate old, damaged skin cells. The fraxel treatment stimulates the body's own natural healing process which replaces damaged skin with fresh, glowing, healthy skin. It is safe and effective on delicate areas like the neck, chest and hands to remove age/sun spots, wrinkles, acne scars and pigmented areas.
Vbeam LaserThe vbeam uses an intense beam of light, delivered in long pulses, to gently remove unwanted, damaged, or diseased cells without harming the surrounding healthy cells. Vascular lesions (spider veins and hemangiomas) and pigmented lesions (brown age spots and freckles) can usually be removed virtually pain free with one or two treatments.
Matrix Co2 Fractional Skin ResurfacingThe high speed ultrafine fractional scanner directs a grid pattern of tiny pulses of light at the skin. Each pulse delivers a column of energy that can reach the skin's dermal layer. This stimulates a natural renewal process of the body's own collagen. Treatments with the matrix fractional co2 laser enhance the skin's strength and elasticity.This laser is effective on almost all skin types to treat wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, sun damage and pigmented lesions.
UltheraUltherapy's ultrasound energy reaches below the surface of the skin to initiate the body's own natural repair process. As the skin matures, collagen fibers that provide internal support become worn. Because the rejuvenation process occurs naturally, results occur gradually.Over a period of 2-3 months skin firming and toning results in the elevation of the brow, softening the wrinkles around the eyes, a shifting of the cheek tissue upward, an improvement in the folds and lines around the nose and mouth and reduced sagging under the chin.
Restylane/ Perlane ManhattanThese are dermal fillers that replace lost volume and restore youthful contours to the skin to smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. The common areas are nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the mouth) cheek bones, hollows in the cheeks and lines round the mouth. Fillers last from 6-12 months. As we get older, we lose volume in the face, which gives a older appearance. The fillers restore that volume. This non-surgical treatment replaces the natural collagen support under the skin. Restylane is hyaluronic acid product does not require allergy testing. Dr. sobel is recognized as a platinum injector by medicis, the manufacturer of restylane because of the expertise in injecting restylane.
Radiesse ManhattanRadiesse is a synthetic injectable filler that reduces wrinkles, creases and scars by augmenting the body’s natural collagen supply. Composed of microspheres in a biocompatible gel, radiesse is made from the same minerals found in our bones, so it carries little risk of allergic reaction. Radiesse can be used on many areas of the body, including the lips, nasolabial folds, peri-oral lines, depressed scars and oral commissures.Treatments typically take 15 minutes and require only local anesthetic.

Its main component is an alpha hyrdoxy acid that has been used for 20 years in surgical products such as dissolvable sutures. Results can last up to two years.
Cosmoderm/Cosmoplast ManhattanMost types of injectable collagen are derived from purified bovine (cow) products, which means patients must undergo skin allergy tests and wait weeks for results before you can begin treatments. Now, the remarkable new cosmoderm and cosmoplast soft-tissue fillers are made from human collagen similar to what is already in the body, eliminating the need for pre-treatment testing and reducing recovery time for fast, simple improvement of facial lines and wrinkles. With as little as one trip to the physician’s office, you can be on your way to enjoying a healthier, younger appearance for up to six months.
Juvederm Injectable Gel ManhattanTouted as the "next generation" of facial fillers, juvéderm injectable gels gently smooth wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose and restore a youthful volume to the face.

Juvederm Ultra and Juvéderm Ultra PlusRecently approved by the fda, juvéderm products are made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that works with collagen and elastin to provide volume and support to the skin. They come in three formulas optimized for the depth of the area being treated. Juvéderm ultra and juvéderm ultra plus use a more advanced, cross-linked formula for the correction of moderate to severe wrinkles or folds in the mid- to deep dermis. Treatment takes only 15 minutes with immediate results and no downtime. Results typically last about 6-9 months and can be made to last even longer with a simple follow-up treatment a few weeks after the initial injection.
Captique ManhattanCaptique is a new injectable filler designed to reduce wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth. Recently approved by the fda, captique is distributed by inamed aesthetics, the same company that produces zyderm/zyplast, cosmoderm/cosmoplast and hylaform. Like hylaform, captique gel is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar that bonds with water to add volume to the skin. Hyaluronic acid is non-animal based and carries no risk of allergic reaction, so no pre-treatment skin test is necessary. Captique works in the same way as restylane. The clear gel is injected beneath the skin, where it binds with water to plump up wrinkles and folds, giving the skin a smoother, younger look. Touch-up treatments every few months can maintain the effects. Your physician can answer further questions and determine whether captique is right for you.
Silikon ManhattanThe fda has approved medical grade injectable silicone for ophthalmic use to treat retinal detachment and, as with some other injectables, it is being used off-label for cosmetic purposes. Silikon 1000 and adatosil 5000, when injected in "micro-droplets" are effective for treating acne scars, plumping the lips and fine lines around the lip borders. These micro-droplets will gradually build up the area in one to four treatments, spaced at least one month apart. Dr. sobel cautions that silicone injections are not appropriate for everyone.

Laser Hair Removal Manhattan
Laser Hair Removal ManhattanWhether for hygienic or cosmetic reasons, women and men who are tired of temporary, often painful methods of removing unwanted hair on the face, back, legs or other body areas may welcome laser hair removal with relief. Lasers produce highly focused, intense beams of light. Dark pigments in the hair follicles beneath the skin’s surface absorb this light and convert it to heat, destroying the follicles and preventing hair growth for up to two years. Multiple treatments are required for complete hair removal. Treatments are needle-free and do not require anesthesia. Most patients feel nothing more than a slight sting like the snap of a rubber band. It is possible that some hair will grow back, though it is usually finer and lighter than what was originally removed. There may also be some redness and swelling following the procedure.
