With summer around the corner most of us need a touch (or maybe more than a touch) of help getting our skin ready for the warmer months. Here are the latest, greatest treatments available in New York to help you beautify those pesky parts that need a little “spring cleaning.”
Celebrity Facialist Joanna Vargas
“The Burn” Body Treatment from our favorite celebrity facialist Joanna Vargas is getting A-listers ready for summer, so why not us, too? She says her new radio-frequency treatment for the body, offered exclusively at her salon in Midtown East, melts fat and improves cellulite in problem areas by using heat and radio waves to push collagen fibers together. It also triggers collagen production for increased elasticity over time. The Burn is great for treating the thighs, butt, tummy, love handles, upper arms, and skin above the knee, and delivers instant results with just one treatment! Starting at $400, JoannaVargas.com
Maintenance is a must for skin that looks radiant, youthful, and clear. We know this. The VI Peel, which only can be administered by a licensed medical professional, provides dramatic results with no pain, no prep, and only a small amount of down time. This painless, medium-depth chemical peel can be used on all skin types and tones, and results can be seen within five days of the treatment. Starting at $500, VIPeel.com
Fractora Skin Resurfacing Treatment
If you’re looking for something with results you cannot achieve at home, particularly baby soft and practically brand new skin that glows, head over to Lisa Hartman, MMS, PA-C of Soignez Vous Aesthetics in Midtown East. The Fractora skin resurfacing treatment, the first bipolar-radio-frequency fractional treatment, provides dramatic skin and wrinkle improvement by fractionally ablating (melting/vaporizing using heat) the skin and restructuring deeper tissue. Treatments are customized based on skin need and patients’ available downtime.
Starting at $300- $3000, Soignezvo.us
Long Island may be a short train or drive away but for a treatment that literally melts the fat away, I think we can all agree it’s worth it. Dr. Peter Neumann of Nassau Plastic Surgical was appointed the official “learning center” for Sculpsure in NY. The world’s first FDA-cleared laser treatment for non invasive lipolysis kills 24 percent of treated cells in the designated area (they do not regenerate) and there is no pain during the procedure or downtime afterward. Results are achieved with state-of-the -art, light-based technology –perfect for patients looking to get rid of stubborn fat.
Each 25-minute session starts at $1800 (4-6 sessions are recommended), NassauPlastics.com
