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.
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.
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.
