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.”

Excerpt from the article:

Roy G. Geronemus, M.D., was performing surgical procedures in his New York City dermatology office about three or four miles from the World Trade Center when the terrorist attacks of 9/11 occurred.

"We had ... panic among the patients — particularly those who had family and friends" in the area, he says. "I remember doing Mohs surgery on a patient whose child was in a school next door to the World Trade Center. There he was with a large wound and, essentially, out of contact with his child."
