Beauty Time for New Moms
Pregnancy and breastfeeding are rough on your body, causing skin and shape issues that perhaps, you’ve never experienced before. Some of you may not be feeling like your old self, which can be disconcerting. So, after you’ve settled in to this new phase of life, it could be time to correct some of these concerns.
It’s not uncommon for young mothers to notice skin and stomach issues such as acne, acne scarring, melasma (darkened facial skin), cellulite, unwanted fat, unwanted hair growth, prominent facial blood vessels, loose skin, brown spots and stretch marks.

Lumps and Bumps No More
If you’ve noticed dimply skin on your hips and thighs, you’re not alone. Nearly 85 percent of women over the age of 20 experience cellulite. And 100 percent of them can’t stand it.
We can help you feel better. With the Cellulaze laser, we can attack cellulite where it begins, under the skin. Cellulite is a degenerative condition that creates dimples and depressions within layers of the skin. It usually appears in the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks and arms and is caused by physiological changes that occur as women age. These changes may include an increase in the size of fat cells pushing up through the tissue beneath the skin, thin connective tissue under the skin that becomes stretched or distended, and undulations caused by hardening of tissue underneath the skin.
With just one treatment, the Cellulaze laser can give you smoother skin.
Diet and exercise can help reduce your weight, but neither can help you get rid of stubborn lumps and bumps. Other treatments temporarily treat the appearance of cellulite, but the Cellulaze laser removes it by diminishing pockets of fat and releasing areas of skin depression. The result: increased elasticity, smoother skin.
Cellulaze is minimally invasive and FDA-approved. And, we were among the first on Long Island to perform it.
Come talk with us to see if Cellulaze is a good choice for you. Schedule your complimentary consultation today.

When the Sun Goes Down…Try These Treatments
Some cosmetic procedures are best performed when the sun isn’t too strong. With beach days behind us and more clothing ahead, fall is a good time to think about having these treatments.
Here are a few procedures to think about:
This laser procedure helps to decrease redness, pigmentation, lines and pore size, and improves the overall texture and tone of your skin. IPL can be used on the face, neck, chest, hands and legs. The treatment is noninvasive and will not damage the surface of your skin. It works by delivering broadband light to the deeper parts of the skin (dermis), while the outside layer (epidermis) is left untouched.
IPL photorejuvenation treats imperfections including spider veins, rosacea, fine wrinkles, sun and age spots, vascular lesions and acne and acne scarring.
The Diolite laser is known for its extreme precision. It pinpoints the skin’s target area, helping to erase vascular and pigmented imperfections while leaving surrounding tissue untouched. Unlike older lasers that could cause pain, blistering, oozing and crusting, Diolite produces the same results without any uncomfortable side effects.
The laser works by generating an intense beam of light that is absorbed by the blood vessels in the affected area. Unwanted cells are destroyed, leaving your skin healthy-looking and refreshed.
This is sometimes a simple alternative to fractional laser treatments. Dermafrac incorporates breakthrough micro-channeling technology, infusing your skin with serums that target specific conditions. Microneedles penetrate the skin and transport the serums, without causing bleeding.
DermaFrac is safe and effective for all skin types and is used to treat acne, scars, stretch marks, skin dehydration, superficial fine lines and wrinkles and pigmentation or uneven tone.
For acne, lactic and salicylic acids may be infused in this way. For lightening, kojic acid is used. If your skin needs hydrating, DermaFrac will send hyaluronic acid into your skin using long-lasting HylaSponge technology. To keep your skin looking youthful, a mix of peptides that stimulate collagen and fibroblast production and help to relax facial muscles is used.
