Dr. Schulman, a New York City Plastic Surgegon and his licensed medical aesthetician, Amanda Sanzone, are excited to introduce “EscarGlow™”, the hottest new beauty treatment. This non-invasive specialty facial combines the unique healing and anti-aging powers of the snail with collagen-inducing microneedling to improve the health and appearance of your skin.
Snails have been used for centuries for their unique healing properties that are attributed to the peptides and growth factors of the snail slime. We combine the anti-aging properties of the snail slime with the collagen-inducing microneedling device. The microneedling device utilizes tiny needles that stimulate collagen, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and improves the appearance of stretch marks and acne scarring. The combination of these two powerful anti-aging techniques is the reason why “EscarGlow™” is one of the hottest beauty treatments around.
The facial begins with a gentle cleansing to remove surface impurities. Next, the highly purified and potent snail slime extract is applied to the face and the microneedling device helps deliver these anti-aging molecules deeper into the skin. This treatment is non-invasive and clients feel nothing more than tingling. Next the face is soothed with a hydrating serum and your are back to normal business, looking fabulous!
The “EscarGlow™” facial is exclusive to Dr. Schulman’s Park Avenue office.
While benefits can be seen after only one single treatment, the true benefit is seen after a series of “EscarGlow™” treatments. To learn more about this exclusive treatment, or to schedule your “EscarGlow™” facial with Amanda Sanzone, call us at 212-289-1851.
NYC Plastic Surgeon Introduces Laser Neck Lift with Immediate Results and No Scarring
(New York, NY) Having an aging neck, oftentimes referred to as “turkey neck,” or even a fleshy double chin can make people feel very self-conscious. As summer is creeping up upon us, it’s inevitably time to put away the turtleneck sweaters and scarves which so many use as a crutch to hide an unsightly neck. Until now, a neck lift was quite an invasive surgery involving the removal of excess skin and altering neck muscles. It also resulted in long “tell-tale” scars around the ears. Now with the introduction of Dr. Schulman’s Laser Neck Lift, necks can be lifted, tightened and smoothed with a minimally invasive procedure that elicits immediate results, minimal downtime, and no scarring.

The recent news story about the “tanorexic” mom in New Jersey who has been accused of allowing her young daughter in a tanning booth, has once again raised awareness of the dangers of tanning beds and sun bathing not only in New Jersey and New York, but throughout the US.

The most common question I hear about chemical peel treatments is “Am I going to look like Samantha from that episode in Sex and the City?” The answer is always no! There is a chemical peel for any and every skin type, and most peels have little to no downtime.
There are studies that show that 90% of skin aging is from external factors. You can just imagine how many of those external factors are sun related. That is why it is crucial to wear sun protection 365 days a year, not just in the summer months. Whenever there is sunlight, there are damaging UVA rays. Most people think that if their skin isn’t burning, there is no damage being done. An easy thing to remember is that UVA rays are the “aging” rays and are occuring year round, all day long. These rays penetrate through windows and even some clothing, so even if you’re not outside, you still need to protect yourself. UVB rays are “burning” rays and are strongest during summer months.
Cosmetic Surgery is designed to either change a body feature that you do not like, or to make you look younger. In today’s economic climate, cosmetic surgery is more than just a matter of vanity. It can mean economic survival for many because it may be exactly what some people need to get that job – or keep the job they already have.
As a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, my job is to help my patients achieve a certain look they desire. I encourage my patients to be as specific as possible with me about the type of look that they are trying to achieve. It follows, therefore, that my patients often use celebrities as examples. No one says to me, “I want to look like X”. Rather, they say “I want lips like X, and breasts like Y.” Patients now dissect celebrities into specific body parts. It reminds of that scene from Weird Science where they input data into the computer and out pops a beautiful Kelly LeBrock. What are the most common celebrity body parts on people’s wish list?
Cosmetic surgery has had a reputation for being exclusive to the rich and famous, but the truth is that cosmetic surgery has become more mainstream and more common among the working middle class. I have seen this specifically in my practice. Despite my exclusive Park Avenue location in one of the richest zip codes in the nation, my waiting room is commonly filled with teachers, nurses, and secretaries sitting next to lawyers, executives, and actors. I love this diversity among my patients.
Everyone loves The Winter Holidays and the spirit they bring with them, especially in New York City. Unfortunately, this time of year also brings dry cold air. When the temperature starts to drop we break out the winter clothes to get warm. The one part of our bodies that tends to get ignored during this time is our face and our lips. Scarves that cover our faces from the cold can help a little, but covering our face and lips is not the only thing we should be doing during wintertime to prevent lack of moisture.
