Have you ever heard the popular saying “put your best face forward”? It’s a common saying because it’s true. Who doesn’t want to show their best face off to the world? Unfortunately though, many New York City residents aren’t too keen on showing anything off. Skin problems can severely affect an individual’s self esteem, especially when the problems are on the person’s face. Your face is the first thing people see when they meet you unlike other problem areas on a person’s body that might not be as flattering. You can’t really hide your face, unless you plan on walking around with a mask on for the rest of your life, which not too many people are apt to do.
New York cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Leonard Grossman, recognizes that there are many different skin problems and learning about them on an individual level is key to ensuring they are resolved. Skin problems are a very personal matter, especially because no two people’s skin tone, texture and response are the same. The following are some common skin problems NYC residents face on a daily basis and what can be done to treat them.
Quite a fewNew York residents have suffered with acne at some point in their lives. Whether the problem is mild or pervasive, acne can affect person’s self esteem like nothing else. Many things can lead to the development of acne, including stress, genetics and diet. However, just because you have acne, doesn’t mean you can’t manage it or even get rid of it. Besides the most advanced laser treatments, Dr. Grossman offers personalized skin care treatments which reduce pores and exfoliate the skin to reduce the recurrence of acne, as well as dark spots left behind from old acne scars. Treatments are safe and effective and are performed on an out-patient or on take-home basis.
Wrinkles and fine lines can show up at any age, but that doesn’t mean they have to stick around. As an experienced NYC cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Grossman employs several innovative techniques to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, including the latest lasers, BOTOX TM, Radiesse injections and Hyaluronic Acid fillers like Restylane or Juvaderm. Dr. Grossman is also a pioneer in the modern fat grafting facial rejuvenation treatment, which uses excess fat enriched with stem cells from the patient’s own body and transferred into sections or the whole face to give patients a much more youthful yet natural appearance.
Broken capillaries are common skin problem for many individuals in NYC. When skin is delicate or dry, it is susceptible to broken capillaries, which become visible on the surface of the skin. They most often appear in the skin near the nose as well as the cheeks. New York City can get extremely cold and dry, which doesn’t help residents who already have fragile skin. Dr. Grossman offers special laser treatments to treat broken capillaries and improve the texture and appearance of the skin in these areas.
