EscarGlow® Your Way To Radiant Holiday Skin

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.

Too Hot To Hide Your Aging Neck or Double Chin

NYC Plastic Surgeon Introduces Laser Neck Lift with Immediate Results and No Scarring

Laser Neck Lift(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 Importance of Sunscreen (yes even in March!)


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.

Skin Care during the Winter Season in NYC

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.
