With the development of so many outstanding skin-tightening, facial-lifting treatments to come along in recent years, you would think that any uncertainty about anti-aging protocols would diminish. In fact, what can happen is a person finds him or herself endlessly researching innovative new treatments, ultimately postponing any method that may improve their aesthetic. Here, we want to discuss the differences between a few of the facial rejuvenation treatments we offer so you can better understand which why you might move to get the younger look you want.
Injectables have become one of the most common methods of treating facial aging. Why wouldn’t they? A 10-minute Botox treatment can lift the brow noticeably enough to make the eyes appear more open and friendly. Botox can also increase the appeal of the face by restoring an upward lift to the corners of the mouth. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, work by adding volume. These products can round the apples of the cheeks and add definition along the cheekbones. Fillers are also a great way to reduce the obvious signs of aging around the eyes, such as sagging, puffy lids.
What to know: injectables are convenient, comfortable, and affordable. Results typically last anywhere from 3 months to 2 years, depending on a product.
We are pleased to incorporate minimally invasive thread-lifting into our extensive menu of services. This procedure is conducted in the office using the local anesthetic. There is no downtime associated with thread-lift treatment. Most patients experience mild swelling if that. Our team has been performing instant thread lifts for 6 years, and we continue to see excellent results in patients who want to lift tissues across the midface or another area without the complexity of a surgical lift.
What to know: A thread lift falls in between facial fillers and a surgical lift. This minor procedure provides immediate results that can last years due to the subsequent production of collagen around the absorbable suture.
When loose skin is the problem, Ultherapy may be an ideal solution. This non-surgical, non-invasive treatment has been routinely performed for the past several years. It works by heating subdermal tissues in a controlled manner so as not to disrupt the general health of the epidermis. The heating of collagen within connective tissue causes immediate contraction and lasting improvement.
What to know: Ultrasound skin tightening through Ultherapy typically provides dramatic results with just one treatment. This method may require yearly maintenance for ongoing anti-aging effects.

Men in New York prefer SculpSure over Liposuction because it’s safer and more consistent. SculpSure requires no surgery as well as no down time therefore, making it more convenient for the average New Yorker. Liposuction requires making an incision in the skin that can leave marks as well as cause infections. SculpSure makes sure the skin’s surface is smooth and free from bacteria!

Patients may feel a bit of soreness, swelling, tingling, redness, or tenderness after sessions which generally goes away within a few hours. Liposuction, however includes multiple risks such as anesthesia risks, infection, bruising, as well as a need for revision surgery.
SculpSure uses a low-level hypothermic laser to irritate the fat cells under the surface of the skin. Patients have reported to feeling a cooling sensation in the beginning of the treatment. The cooling sensation is on during the entire session, but patients have reported to feeling a heating sensation throughout the treatment, which is well-tolerated.

10 Tips For Your Perfect Wedding
Prepare for your wedding with a pre-wedding facial routine. This will allow you to have your skin evaluated and to establish a regimen to ensure your skin is clear and hydrated. A traditional facial involves cleansing, exfoliation, massage and extractions , however, if you are looking to transform the look and feel of your skin then do yourself a favor and book a laser facial or micro-needling treatment.*
Wax prior to your wedding. It always best to have a treatment at least a few months prior to avoid possible irritation. You can also have laser hair removal.*
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is an excellent alternative to waxing prior to your wedding. It will remove hair in the treated areas.*
Professionally sculpted eyebrows add definition and polish to your face.*
Spray (of course!) tanning should be performed before your wedding.
-Always remember prior to sunless tanning to exfoliate your skin with a scrub to ensure an even application.
–Apply lighter spray to the wrists, knees and elbows.
-Do a trial in advance
-Never go too dark
–Don’t forget to apply behind the ears and under the chin
-It is best to have manicure and pedicure 1 day before
Keep your lips free of dryness by exfoliating and applying moisturizer before your wedding. Fillers such as Juvéderm Volbella are an excellent option to achieve plump well defined lips in time for your wedding day.* It is important to remember to schedule a test run in advance.
Say Yes To Eyes
Eye pencil should last the whole day making your eyes pop out in photos. It is better to choose a super stay formula gel-like liquid or cake eyeliner. Your eye pencil and mascara should be waterproof to withstand the test of dancing and crying.
Sweating can be embarrassing under normal circumstances, however, it is the last thing you will want to deal with on your wedding day. Fortunately, botox injections under the arm will help keep you cool and comfortable and most importantly sweat free on your wedding day.*
Avoid On Your Wedding Day
•Avoid foundation and powder with SPF because the sun protection in these products can reflect light when your photographer takes indoor photos using a flash creating patches on your skin. (moisturizer with SPF is no problem)
•Avoid lip gloss because it doesn’t last long and isn’t kissable (sticky), can smudge and even migrate to your cheeks or hair.
One or two weeks before the wedding the groom should get a proper hair cut. It should be thinned out but not too short to avoid having freshly cut hair on the day of the wedding. On the actual day of the wedding the groom should shave the neck and the chin up to the sideburns.
Last advice to groom; a bit of makeup is okay on your wedding day!
