Beauty Treatments

Botox® is a safe and effective method for relaxing the facial muscles causing wrinkles, frown lines, and crows feet.  Dr. Lefkowitz’s advanced training, including his Plastic Surgery Residency and his work with the Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital, have greatly influenced his approach to Botox®.

Dr. Lefkowitz advocates a more conservative first treatment, with the goal of smoothing or reducing lines while maintaining your animated appearance. Though the results are temporary, lasting approximately three to four months, the treatment takes mere minutes to perform and is perfect for patients with hectic lives. It can be performed during the lunch hour, and there is minimal to no downtime.

  • Realistic expectations
  • Dynamic wrinkles including, crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead creases, upper lip lines, and neck bands 
Recovery Time

A chemical peel is a solution applied to the skin. The top layer of skin is peeled away; stimulating new healthy skin production with more uniformed pigmentation and organized collagen bundles. This gives your skin a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Dr. Lefkowitz believes a pre-peel skin regimen is essential to maximize your aesthetic results. In addition to strict sun protection with UV-A and B sun block, in the month prior to your peel, he recommends a pre-treatment regimen consisting of a retinol (Retin-A) and a lightening cream (hydroquinone.) Following this regimen will prepare your skin for the peel, minimize your downtime, and provide more natural and balanced results.

As time and gravity take effect, the soft, subtle transition areas of our face become more pronounced with folds and wrinkles. Juvederm and Restylane are Hyaluronic Acid (HLA) facial fillers. HLA, a naturally occurring substance in your body, provides support and volume. These fillers are non-animal derived and biodegradable. They restore volume naturally lost during the aging process. Often used in conjunction with Botox Cosmetic or facial rejuvenation procedures and treatments, HLA fillers are proven to be safe and effective when used appropriately.

  • Presence of lines, wrinkles, and folds
  • Cheeks have lost volume
  • Thinning lips with less volume
