To get ready for the holidays, Haute Living is recommending a visit to the office of Dr. Matthew Schulman, one of New York City's top plastic surgeons.
Amanda Sanzone, Dr. Schulman's licensed aesthetician, was featured in their story "Holiday Ready? 5 Fantastic Facials in NYC."
Available exclusively at Dr. Schulman's office, our EscarGlow® facial combines micro-needling with the application of a concentrated snail extract to repair the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production.
The publication calls EscarGlow® "one of the hautest new beauty treatments" -- and notes that "this snail secretion is applied during and after the micro-needling to increase penetration and effectiveness." The procedure is recommended for softening fine lines and wrinkles, shrinking pores, brightening the skin, improving the appearance of acne scarring or stretch marks, and overall skin rejuvenation and increased collagen production.
For centuries, snails have been used for their unique healing properties. Peptides and growth factors in snail slime have been proven to show a significant increase in the amount of collagen and elastin production in the skin. The snails are not harmed in the process.
After the EscarGlow® treatment, it is normal to have slight redness and sensitivity for about 24 hours. For the best results, we recommend three to six treatments -- performed once a month for the most dramatic result.
Amanda Sanzone, who has a loyal following of celebrities and New York City's elite, offers a variety of skin and aesthetician services in our New York office.

One of New York City's top cosmetic surgeons is in the news yet again for pioneering an innovative technique. Dr. Matthew Schulman has added Botox to breast augmentation surgery to give his patients faster, better and more natural-looking recovery time.
"During a Botox-assisted breast augmentation, a precise amount of Botox is injected directly into the chest muscle from the inside. The Botox will relax the muscles for about three to four months," Dr. Schulman told Byrdie.
Relaxing the chest muscles reduces muscle spasms as they heal, meaning less pain and shorter recovery time. It also improves the look of your new breasts. "Usually after traditional breast augmentation, the implants can appear to be high on the chest for about six months," Dr. Schulman said. "This is normal, but high implants can look unattractive or very fake."
When Dr. Schulman uses Botox to relax the muscles, however, the implants drop into a pleasing final position within four to six weeks.
One of Dr. Schulman's patients -- 31-year-old Jennifer, who works in Manhattan -- told the New York Daily News about her experience with Botox-assisted breast surgery: "I felt great, like I didn't have it done. I was back to work in a few days. The implants settled quickly."
As far as risks go, Dr. Schulman says, "When done correctly, it has no negative effect on the chest muscle and will not interfere with any chest or arm strength."
