Botox CosmeticBotox cosmetic is fda approved for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, and is extremely effective at easing the over-contracted muscles that cause surface skin to look old or stressed. Placed strategically by a skilled dermatologist botox can also gently lift the lower third of the face, the usual target of the surgical facelift. A botox treatment typically consists of several small injections. It works by temporarily weakening the treated muscles so that the skin relaxes and facial wrinkles and lines become less noticeable. Results can be seen in 4-10 days and can last 4 to 6 months
Botox MedicalBotox has medical as well as cosmetic applications. As a powerful neurotoxin that can ease over-contracted muscles, botox was originally used by ophthalmologists to treat crossed or wandering eyes. After extensive testing, botox was fda approved for cosmetic use for smoothing facial lines and wrinkles. Since its first use for eye disorders around 1990, botox has shown an increasingly wide range of applications, including migraine headaches and hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. Botox is also currently being tested for treatment of neck pain associated with cervical dystonia (contracted neck muscles), strabismus, essential tremor, teeth grinding, and muscle spasms associated with stroke and muscular dystrophy
SclerotherapySclerotherapy is an office procedure for treatment of varicose veins and ‘spider’ or ‘starburst’ veins. During sclerotherapy treatment, the dermatologist injects a solution of sodium chloride directly into the targeted vein with a fine needle. This solution irritates the lining of the vessel, and eventually causes it to collapse and disappear. Spider veins are small, thin veins close to the surface of the skin and usually take on one of three basic patterns: a spider shape, branch-like shapes or clusters in thin, separate lines. Varicose veins are larger, darker in color and tend to bulge. Weight gain, some medications and prolonged sitting or standing are some causes of unsightly veins, as are pregnancy or hormonal changes. Sclerotherapy is a safe procedure that has been used effectively by dermatologists for years for this type of vein removal
MicroliposuctionLiposuction is a safe, minimally invasive surgical procedure, micro liposuction is designed to remove inches, not pounds, and is ideal for areas that do not respond well to diet and exercise, like the lower face, neck, chin and jowls. Microliposuction is also effective for hard-to-contour areas around the waist, arms, thighs, buttocks, knees, ankles and abdomen. During microliposuction, fat deposits are removed by means of a cannula, a very thin, hollow tube attached to a vacuum. This surgical instrument (finer than the one used in major liposuction) is inserted and then manipulated under the skin by the dermatological surgeon. The subdermal fat is then suctioned out through the tube. The microliposuction result is immediately improved body contour in hard-to-target areas. The refined, delicate (and minimal) procedure gives a safe, predictable and satisfying cosmetic result. The fat removed during micro liposuction can be used immediately for fat transfer, that is, to fill collagen-depleted areas like nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Or it can be stored for future use
The Fifteen Minute FaceliftThe wryly named fifteen-minute ‘facelift’ refers to one quick visit to the dermatologist for two highly effective anti-aging procedures: botox and facial fillers. The cosmetic treatments combined are so successful at smoothing skin and restoring youthful volume that the result, in a fraction of the time, at a fraction of the cost, is a subtle, mini-lift. And aesthetically, the fifteen-minute facelift® has a much more natural-looking outcome than is possible with plastic surgery. The fifteen-minute facelift also boasts a low-to-no risk factor, and requires no recovery time, other than that associated with the possibility of temporary bruising. For more information about both components of the fifteen-minute facelift, please see botox and facial fillers. Combining the two procedures in one visit to the dermatologist is entirely safe and is asmart, carefree, cost-effective way to keep the face looking consistently fresh and youl. The fifteen-minute facelift result is not permanent and eventually touch-ups will be required to maintain it.
Chemical PeelsChemical peels which remove the dead cells on the outer layer of the dermis, are essential to maintaining healthy, beautiful, age-resistant skin. Regular chemical peels help to reverse the signs of aging, improve skin tone and color, stimulate collagen production, diminish acne and treat pre-cancerous lesions, like actinic keratosis. Safe and effective chemical peels are performed at the dermatologist’s, with a trained medical professional determining which chemical peeling agent is most appropriate, according to the individual’s skin type and condition. Choices include glycolic (sugar) acid, lactic (milk) acid, tca (trichloracetic acid) or beta acids. After most chemical peels, the skin immediately looks more healthy, supple and radiant, the complexion fresh and clear. Some chemical peels require a brief recovery time before the optimal result is evidenced.
Facial FillersFacial fillers are used to maintain volume in the face, and thus restore (or prolong) a youthful, rested, healthy appearance. Sometimes referred to as ‘collagen replacement’ or ‘soft tissue enhancement,’ or ‘restylane’ (a brand name), facial filler injections take only minutes to perform and the cosmetic results are immediate. The dermatologist injects the selected facial filler at sites where natural fat has depleted, the most common being the folds next to the nose (nasolabial folds), the lines running from the mouth toward the chin (marionette lines), sunken cheeks and thinning lips. The new generation of facial fillers is more practical than the animal-based collagens they are descended from, as the newer products are biocompatible, more versatile in their weights and densities, and last longer. However, most facial fillers are still temporary, and depending on the staying power of the product (as well as the reaction of the patient) touch-ups will eventually be required.
The TriadsThe triad medical facial was developed by leading new york dermatologist david colbert, M.D. As a way of combining the best of the advanced medical and cosmetic skin care technologies into one effective skin renewal treatment. The three-part triad features three skin health essentials: microdermabrasion, laser toning and chemical peeling. The triad result is both short and long term—it energizes and beautifies skin instantly, but also initiates a sustained process of cell rejuvenation and collagen stimulation. Over time, and ideally with regular application, the triad works to reverse wrinkles and photodamage and to prevent development of pre-cancerous lesions. A popular medical procedure with visible cosmetic benefits for both men and women, the triad has been covered extensively in national media including vogue, elle, self, allure, and the new york times science and style sections.
Tattoo RemovalTattoo removal is an old problem; for as long as there have been permanent tattoos, there have been people who would like to permanently be rid of them. Until now, however, methods for removing tattoo ink from the skin including dermabrasion, saltabrasion, co2 lasersdidn't work, left scars, and were less than a pleasant experience for the patient.
Rad C FacialThis ultra-luxurious medical facial revitalizes skin too sensitive for treatments that feature more aggressive elements like mechanical exfoliation and chemical peeling. Developed by leading new york dermatologist david colbert, md, it is another in the nydg custom line of procedures designed with the best of both medical and cosmetic dermatology, this time with the goal of renewing the health and beauty of skin challenged with rosacea or hypersensitivity. The two-part facial begins with a session of gentle laser toning, which helps to even skin’s texture and pigmentation, and that stimulates long range collagen renewal. Then, an active vitamin c compound rich in anti-oxidants penetrates the skin and smoothes and soothes as it restores and protects. The result is calmly renewed, radiant, age-protected skin.
LasersLaser technology is an ever-expanding scientific field that has advanced greatly in the last decade, with extremely significant impact on dermatology. The applications for skin renewal and rejuvenation by lasers that require no downtime are growing exponentially, and every advance brings more breakthroughs. Today’s lasers can reduce wrinkles, tighten and tone skin, correct pigment, remove red or brown spots, and even erase once indelible tattoos.
Gentle WavesGentlewaves is an led light-based therapy that helps to treat surface lines and wrinkles and can improve brown spotsand large pores without visibly disturbing the surface skin. Regular use of gentlewaves is one of the least invasive ways to reverse the signs of time. Fda approved as an effective cosmetic treatment, gentlewaves uses led (light emitting diodes) to erase skin imperfections caused by age or environment, and does so painlessly and with no downtime. The full course of gentlewaves treatment typically involves twelve soothing sessions spaced at regular intervals about a week or two apart. Gentlewaves won’t even put a dent in your schedule: each gentlewaves session is only a minute long.
Laser Hair RemovalAnother function of laser light is laser hair removal, the permanent depilation, or grooming, of unwanted or unruly hair. Our coolglide laser hair removal system can be used on any area of the body, including the beard (where men regularly use it to maintain ‘the five-o’clock shadow’ favored by film stars and celebrities). The procedure is also effective for upper lip, underarms, chest and bikini areas. In new york city laser hair removal for men is popular to remove unwanted hair from the back, chest, and neck. Laser hair removal usually requires repeated sessions, and the dermatologist or the dermatologist’s trained laser technician determines the number of treatments needed. Patients are advised that laser hair removal is a medical procedure that requires knowledge, skill and experience to perform, so a certified medical facility with proven equipment is strongly recommended over a non-medical spa. After a consultation with the dermatological staff, a program of treatment is devised and laser hair removal sessions are scheduled at regular intervals in the appropriate number to achieve the desired effect.
Titan Skin TighteningThe titan laser treats loose, sagging skin anywhere on the body, including the face, neck, chin, jowls, stomach, arms, buttocks or thighs. The result of repeated (usually 2 or 3 titan sessions spaced over six months) treatments is tighter, more toned and resilient skin and a ‘natural’ lift to the treated area. During the procedure, the titan’s infrared light device, a laser wand, is passed over the area to be treated, delivering a series of quick pulses. While the titan handpiece cools the surface skin, the penetrating laser heat works to repair weak collagen fibers, which the natural aging process and environmental influences have worn down over time. In response to the titan’s sub-dermal heat, new collagen begins to generate, in a sense called to action to repair the disturbed skin. Some improvement in skin tone and elasticity is immediately apparent, and time works to increase the effect. With further titan treatments, the skin grows firmer and appears increasingly youthful and resilient.
V-Beam and Varilite LasersOur versatile v-beam and varilite lasers are effective in the treatment of vascular and brown pigmented lesions, freckles/sun/age spots and in the removal of veins. Facial veins and leg veins can be removed safely with the highly adaptable lasers without affecting the surrounding skin and tissue. The systems of the two lasers differ but have crossover capabilities, and the v-beam and varilite are also effective at treating surface wrinkles, acne, psoriasis, red birthmarks (hemangiomas and port wine stains), angiomas, poikiloderma of civatte (uneven coloring of the neck and chest), venous lakes, red stretch marks and warts. Either the v-beam or varilite lasers can be programmed by the dermatologist to the specific needs of individual patients with predictably satisfying results.
Laser ToningLaser toning improves the appearance of the skin in both the short run and the long term. The procedure results in instant rejuvenation of the face, neck, hands and décolleté because it plumps, smoothes and clarifies. Laser toning also promotes sub-dermal collagen production so that skin texture, color and tone continue to improve long after your appointment at the dermatologist’s. Regular laser toning can diminish surface flaws like wrinkles and brown spots, or imperfections caused by conditions like acne and rosacea. Laser toning is painless, though patients may experience a sensation of heat as the laser wand passes over the skin. Laser toning, known by us as ‘the gym for the skin,’ is an essential element of the nydg triad medical facial and pedicure triad, two of our signature treatments designed for superior maintenance of skin health and beauty.
Fraxel Sr LaserFraxel sr laser leads the field in gentle skin resurfacing, providing all the benefits of the most advanced renewal methods without any of the surface disruption or ensuing downtime. The fraxel is fda approved for four dermatological objectives in particular: wrinkle reduction, pigment correction, acne scar healing and melasma. Fraxel skin resurfacing also tightens and tones the skin, leaving it with improved color consistency and a youthful elasticity. Overall, fraxel sr repairs, refines and restores the skin with non-ablative light, causing only minimal and temporary redness or flaking. The fraxel is effective on delicate skin areas like the face, neck, chest and hands and is suitable for all skin types. It works especially well to correct skin around the eyes and mouth. Fraxel is usually recommended as a series of 3 sessions scheduled four to six weeks apart.
