In addition, his experience supports performing the treatment in the office without the use of anesthesia where it can be done very safely and atraumatically for both the child and the parents.

goop says: "We continue making collagen as we get older, but production slows dramatically. Bad habits, like smoking, poor diet, and getting too much sun, make matters worse. And as collagen levels drops, our skin starts to thin, droop, and form lines. But there are ways to preserve the collagen we’ve got and even potentially stimulate our bodies to replace some of what we’ve lost, says New York dermatologist Dr. Robert Anolik, a clinical assistant professor of dermatology at the NYU School of Medicine."

CoolSculpting® by Zeltiq is an FDA-cleared non-invasive treatment for fat reduction that takes advantage of fat cells’ sensitivity to cold. During treatment, the temperature of fatty areas is lowered, triggering a reaction that reduces fat cells. This is often referred to as "fat freezing". These damaged fat cells are slowly digested over several months by our bodies and removed through the liver.

“Non-invasive laser treatments for post inflammatory hyperpigmentation or hemosiderin staining are typically quite effective and require several treatments which are usually well tolerated.” - Roy G. Geronemus, M.D., featured in New York Social Diary
Spider veins, blue veins and varicose veins are generally the products of genetics or pregnancy.  The most common treatment is sclerotherapy.  Vein treatment, however, can cause discoloration to the skin.  Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation or hemosiderin staining can occur on the legs following sclerotherapy, surgery, trauma or from venous insufficiency.  Fortunately, there are several non-invasive lasers which can effectively treat these conditions including the q-switched ruby laser, q-switched Nd:Yag laser, Picosure laser, the Clear & Brilliant laser and the LaseMD laser informs dermatologist and laser expert, Roy Geronemus, MD.

According to Dr. Roy Geronemus, director of the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York who counts Drew Barrymore as one of his clients, choosing the right clothing can be key when it comes to protecting yourself against the sun’s rays. “I routinely recommend sun-protective clothing to my clients to protect against sunburns, minimize the risk of skin cancer, and prevent photoaging,” says Geronemus. “The bottom line is, there is a real value with these items, and they are underutilized.”

As we look forward to summer and fun in the sun, it’s important to remember how to be sun safe. Good sun habits can prevent a vacation-ruining sunburn and also keep your skin and your kids’ skin healthy, younger and cancer-free. Non-melanoma skin cancer is probably due to cumulative sun exposure over one’s life, so it is never too early to start some of these protective measures.

Fat. The way we acquire it, the way we store it, and the effort it takes to lose it are encoded in our genes. The way we think about it, however, is beyond science—and sometimes beyond reason. The dynamic forces of culture, media, personality, and upbringing within each of us make the issue completely subjective. Fat defies generalization.

How the pros treat their patients’—and their own—most pressing concerns.  

DR. ROBERT ANOLIK

Patients
: Maybe it’s those unflattering images we see of ourselves in selfies or on Skype, but according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a record 55,000 neck lifts were performed in 2014. Still, while the problem hasn’t changed the remedy has. Renowned New York dermatologist Dr. Anolik says “In the last six months I’ve had as many people asking for Kybella (an injectable that helps dissolve excess fat in the chin area), as patients asking to banish their crow’s feet.” Kybella mimics the same natural acid that helps us digest food when we eat. There’s some bruising or swelling for a few days, but after two to six treatments spaced roughly a month apart, patients enjoy reduced neck fat and a more contoured jawline.

Personally:
 While admitting to using injectables and lasers, Dr. Anolik keeps the specifics to himself because, “If I say ‘I do this or that’ patients will ask for those procedures when really, I want to do what’s right for them.” But he does reveal what’s next on the horizon. A new technique that’s in clinical trials which boosters claim will replace surgery and injections:  A cream for removing undereye fat.

Dr. Anolik discusses product and latest-treatment recommendations with Vanity Fair:

SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator, Kybella, PicoSure

“Once sun damage is present, retinoid is the most effective topical cream for restoring the skin’s appearance. Yes, Botox prevents the formation of permanent creases, and I use Fraxel lasers to remodel and build collagen in the skin. Kybella is the first injectable treatment for the improvement of the appearance of a double chin and PicoSure laser therapy for a nearly no-downtime treatment of acne scars. I recommend sunscreens, Retinoids, and SkinMedica HA5, which promotes hyaluronic-acid development in the skin that helps smooth out overall wrinkles.”

If you harbor tattoo regret stemming from outdated art, a messy job, or a symbolic gesture that has lost its significance, National Tattoo Day on July 17th will be your chance to start fresh with a clean canvas. Whether the goal is to clean up the lines of an existing tattoo or totally remove it, the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York®, can help you with the assistance of the first FDA-cleared picosecond aesthetic laser, PicoSure®.  “Just like a relationship, trends can easily come and go, leaving one wondering years later what the reason, or lack thereof, of getting the tattoo in the first place,” “Some people ask to remove all traces of ink, while others choose to cover it up with another tattoo and come in for laser treatments to clean up what can’t be covered.” states Roy G. Geronemus, M.D., “With PicoSure we can effectively erase tattoos with fewer treatments and better results than other tattoo removal lasers.  Get your skin ready for a tattoo touch-up, cover-up, or complete removal.”

About 20 million Americans live with scars from acne. But now a new laser skin treatment may offer the chance to get rid of the scars for good. This new technique uses an ultra-short pulse of laser energy from a system calledPicoSure, which is also used for tattoo removal. PicoSure won FDA approval for the treatment of acne scars in July, and said its studies showed 86 percent of patients were satisfied with the results after 3 months .Dr. Jeremy A. Brauer, a board-certified dermatologist  at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York, performed the procedure.

Robert T. Anolik, M.D., featured in goop (a weekly publication curated by Gwyneth Paltrow) as the New York doctor to see for laser hair removal.

Though it's arguably more painful than a visit with a waxer, committing to laser hair removal has its rewards: Namely, after six sessions or so, you never have to worry about your nether regions again. It's a big up-front expense, but cheaper in the long-run if bikini care is on your monthly to-do list.

"With locations in New York City (he's in Dr. Brandt's office) and Southampton, Dr. Anolik is tops. In addition to being best-in-class for lasering, he's the clinical assistant professor of dermatology at both the NYU School of Medicine and the Medical College of Cornell University." - goop

The Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York offers New York’s first Picosecond laser for tattoo and pigmented lesion removal.

The FDA has cleared the PicoSure™ laser for tattoo and pigmented lesion removal. The approval is based on the clinical work performed at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York under the direction of Dr. Roy G. Geronemus which has been published in the Archives of Dermatology. At the present time there are three PicoSure™ lasers in the world, two of which are at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York,  located in midtown Manhattan.

The PicoSure™ laser delivers short bursts of energy to the skin in trillionths of a second and more rapidly clears almost all tattoos, especially blue and green colors which have been difficult to remove by other lasers. The Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York study included 22 subjects with multicolored and recalcitrant tattoos were treated with PicoSure™ over a two-week period. The results demonstrated greater than 80% overall tattoo clearance. On average, 94% clearance was achieved for blue and green ink.

PicoSure™ laser treatments are performed with local anesthesia and are only performed by board certified and fellowship trained dermatologists at our center.

Picosecond Laser Shows Promise for New Era in Tattoo Removal

Picosecond Laser Shows Promise for New Era in Tattoo Removal

A recent study out of our center and presented by Dr. Roy G. Geronemus at the 2012  meeting of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery in Kissimmee, Florida found that Cynosure's PicoSure laser cleared more than two-thirds of green and/or blue tattoos within one or two treatments.

"'Blue and green tattoos have been very resistant to treatment with nanosecond-pulse lasers. The average tattoo needs six to 10 treatments to achieve acceptable results, but up to 20 sessions are sometimes needed,' Dr. Geronemus says. 'The dramatic clearing of blue and green tattoos in just one or two sessions using the picosecond alexandrite laser is really remarkable.'"

Dr. Elliot Weiss tells you how to beat the winter beauty blues and go from drab to fab!

“The winter months are actually a great time to focus on your cosmetic concerns.  Typically, our social calendars are a little more open, and the skin has lost its summer glow, making it ideal for laser treatments.  Stubborn red vessels or sunspots can safely be removed with laser treatments, and dull, wrinkled or sundamaged skin can be rejuvenated with laser resurfacing.  It’s also a perfect time to treat that unwanted hair or tattoo so you can kick off summer 2012 looking your very best. And, of course, don’t forget a little Botox or dermal filler to smooth those lines and give your face a natural youthful look.”

"The recent article 'Lack of training can be deadly in cosmetic surgery' by Jayne O'Donnell gave inaccurate information by emphasizing plastic surgeons as the only qualified providers of cosmetic surgery. This is simply not the case and does a grave disservice to consumers. Her article neglected to include the fact that dermatologic surgeons are physicians who also receive training in a variety of cosmetic surgical procedures, such as liposuction, during their residencies and are therefore a safe and expert choice for consumers seeking cosmetic procedures..."

Do Lasers or Topicals Really Work for Nonmelanoma Skin Cancers?


Novel strategies are urgently needed to address the millions of nonmelanoma skin cancers
treated in the United States annually. The need is greatest for those patients who are poor
surgical candidates or those prone to numerous nonmelanoma skin cancers and therefore
at risk for marked disfigurement. Traditional treatment strategies include electrosurgery
with curettage, radiation therapy, cryotherapy, excision, and Mohs micrographic surgery.
Alternatives to traditional treatment, including topical medications and light or laser therapies,
are becoming popular; however, there are various degrees of efficacy among these
alternative tactics...........................................................
