My job as a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon is to help you feel more confident and comfortable in your skin. When I started in practice over 25 years ago, the tools available for assisting my Long Island patients to improve aesthetic issues with their face, breasts or body were almost exclusively surgical. As the name implies, plastic surgery was synonymous with cutting, incisions and the operating room. But in the last two decades, there’s been an explosion in the non-surgical arena. One of the things that I love about plastic surgery is that it’s a field that embraces innovation. We listen to our patients, and look for new ways to deliver on their needs. And what my colleagues and I heard again and again is that you want procedures that deliver measurable results without significant downtime. So, here’s an overview of the best in non-surgical procedures at Epstein Plastic Surgery.
Choosing the Best Non-Surgical Options
As discussed, the non-surgical segment of my practice has seen tremendous growth over the last 20 years. I am literally besieged almost weekly with new non-invasive technologies. So, how do I choose the best non-surgical options for my patients? I call upon my background as a bio-medical electrical engineer. It has been a tremendous asset in helping me to understand:
- How these technologies work
- If they deliver on their promise
- Do they make sense for my patients
I do a lot of research before I pull the trigger to bring in a new piece of equipment. My patients know that any procedure on offer is going to deliver real results. The exciting thing about non-surgical procedures today is that we now have the ability to treat:
- Full range of skin types
- All degrees of aging
- Can tailor intensity of treatment to patients needs and tolerance for downtime
Energy-based devices have become a very popular choice for patients seeking non-surgical rejuvenation of the face and/or body. Treatments such as:
- Plasma IQ
- Morpheus 8
- Moxi Laser
- HALO Laser
- Profractional Laser (similar to older Fraxel laser)
- Bare-It Laser Hair Removal
These are truly viable options to produce significant changes in your body contour, skin texture, and skin tone without the need for incisions.
Non-Surgical Procedures Customized to Your Needs
Furthermore, many of these non-surgical options allow me to customize how deep the energy penetrates into your skin and tissues. This way, we can not only address the full range of your specific aging issues, but also the amount of downtime required to recover. Many patients have lives and jobs that prohibit serious downtime. No problem. My current tool chest of non-invasive procedures allows me to do it all while still working within the parameters of your lifestyle. I have always believed that if you are going to run a top level practice such as my own then you must offer treatments that deliver top level results. The non-surgical procedures at my practice will give you the rejuvenation that you desire, and the downtime that you can tolerate without surgery.
