New York Dermatologist Dr. Michele Green shares about her background in the cosmetic field, the way she runs her office, and the devices she uses in her practice.

Dr. Michele Green - Manhattan, NYName: Dr. Michele S. Green MD
Location: Manhattan, New York City
Website: http://www.michelegreenmd.com/
Brief Bio: Dr. Michele S. Green is a board-certified dermatologist based in NYC. She is a graduate from Yale University, with an MD from Mount Sinai Medical School in NYC, and has since opened her own private practice on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and treats both medical and cosmetic dermatology patients with an emphasis on anti-aging and skin cancer prevention.

I use a range of laser treatments for skin rejuvenation and skin tightening. Popular laser treatment requests include Thermage for facial skin tightening, V-Beam, Fraxel dual laser and its “mini-fraxel” counterpart, the Clear+Brilliant, or eMatrix which helps produce new collagen and rejuvenate the skin’s appearance. I utilize the BBL laser which is my favorite IPL laser because of the ST skin tightening handpiece. While all new technologies and developments are of interest, we are very specific with picking the ones that we use for each condition and do not have...

Dr. Ron Shelton - Cosmetic Lasers & Surgery In Manhattan, NY

With more than 27 years of practice under his belt, Dermatologist Dr. Ron Shelton gives us an insight about his experiences and running his practice in New York City.

Dr. Ron Shelton - Manhattan, NYName: Ron Shelton MD
Website: www.thenyac.com
Location: Manhattan, New York City
Brief Bio: An industrious, forward thinker, Dr. Ron Shelton, in 2001, brought together an accomplished group of surgeons to holistically address the needs of both cosmetically-minded patients and those needing Mohs surgery and reconstruction for skin cancer.

New York Aesthetic Consultants included Cosmetic Dermatologic and Plastic Surgeons. It was one of the first medical spas in New York City. In July 2014, Dr. Shelton was invited to join the prestigious NYC laser practice, Laser and Skin Surgery Center of New York. Both Dr. Shelton’s and LSSC’s practices have benefited by this merger as the Midtown NYC cosmetic dermatology practice has more than 60 lasers and devices and a dedicated research division for the development of new laser technology.

Our practice has 8 full time dermatologists and several part time dermatologists and a plastic surgeon. We practice in Midtown Manhattan and Southamptom Long Island, but my full time practice is limited to our NYC practice, in which I see patients from 8 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday. We have many administrators including the executive practice administrator, COO, office manager, nursing manager, laser research manager, many RNs and a few medical assistants. I perform all laser and cosmetic device treatments for my patients. We do not have ancillary providers perform lasers in our practice. Half of my practice is cosmetic dermatology including laser resurfacing, laser treatment of discoloration (facial erythema, lentigines, tattoo removal), body sculpting / skin tightening with liposuction and minimally invasive (ThermiTight) and non invasive treatments (Thermage, Ultherapy, ThermiSmooth, CoolSculpting, UltraShape, SculpSure), volume augmentation with fat injections as well as many of the hyaluronic acid treatments (Voluma, Vollure, Volbella, Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero) and other fillers and Sculptra. Botox is very commonly performed. The other half of my practice deals with skin cancer treatment with excisions, and Mohs Micrographic Surgery and Reconstruction.

The list of devices we have is quite long, approximately sixty and they encompass many types of lasers and devices. We have only one IPL. We have gentle laser toning with Cutera XEO Laser Genesis and PicoSure focus lens array and Clear & Brilliant and Permea. Lasers for resurfacing include Fraxel Restore/Dual, and Fraxel Repair.

Michael Law MD is a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

He elected to pursue a rigorous ten-year training program that includes general surgery residency at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), plastic surgery residency at the University of Southern California (USC), and a plastic surgery fellowship at USC. His ten years of formal training following medical school amount to twice that of some plastic surgeons.

How did you get started with plastic surgery?

I knew I wanted to be a surgeon since childhood. I elected to become a plastic surgeon for several reasons: for the creativity required for practice of reconstructive surgery, for the procedural and anatomic variety of surgeries performed, and perhaps most of all for the opportunity to be artistic in my life’s work.

I practiced plastic surgery in Beverly Hills for several years after completing my surgical residency and fellowship. While there, I started working with aestheticians. I realized early in my practice that good skin care was a great compliment to aesthetic plastic surgery. When I made the decision to move to...

Location: Seattle, WA
Website: https://www.daseattle.com

Brief Bio:

Dr. Jenkin completed his dermatology training at McGill University in Montreal in 1980.

Dr. Jenkin is an outdoor enthusiast, loves skiing, hiking and racing cars. When he is not treating patients he can often be found speaking about skin diseases at local seminars or visiting his grandchildren.

How did you first get into cosmetic medicine?

My interest was piqued in cosmetic medicine back in the mid-1980s when I started to use a CO2 laser which was followed in 1987 by the development of the first pulsed dye laser. I was always fascinated by the new advances which extended the range of things we could do to help patients with their cosmetic concerns. That trend has been followed by making those treatments less invasive and safer.

None of these treatments were available when I did my dermatology residency...

Dr. Jenny Weyler - Aponi Aesthetics, Massachusetts

Starting out as a Primary Care Physician, Dr. Jenny Weyler branched out to aesthetics, exclusively practicing the field since 2010 in our interview with the Physician.

Dr. Jenny Weyler - Aponi Aesthetics, Massachusetts

Name: Dr. Jenny Weyler
Clinic: Aponi Aesthetics
Location: Worcester, MA
Website: http://aponiaesthetics.com/

Brief Bio:

I am a Board Certified family practice doctor, who graduated in 1992 from the Medical College of Pennsylvania (now part of Drexel University) in Philadelphia, PA. I completed my family practice residency in 1995 at the University of Massachusetts in Worcester, MA. I practiced as a primary care physician from 1994-2004, and then worked in an Urgent Care clinic from 2004-2010. In 2010 I started taking classes to learn aesthetic injections, and I opened my own business in December 2010. Initially we did some primary care here, but I loved doing aesthetics so much, and that part of the practice grew so quickly that we became exclusively aesthetic providers in 2014 and changed our name to Aponi Aesthetics.

How did Aesthetics interest you and it influence your practice?

When I was doing primary care I always loved doing procedures: stitches, mole removals, biopsies and any minor surgical procedure. Learning aesthetic injections was a great way to incorporate my love of procedures with the excitement of learning a whole new field of medicine. The results are so obvious, amazing and gratifying. People love the results, so the clients are enthusiastic and how could I not love making people look and feel better? As I honed my skills in injections, I started to learn more about lasers and skin care products and we added that to our repertoire as we went along. I have logged well over 100 hours of direct hands-on training in injectables and laser safety and use, as well as many more hours of lectures on the same subjects. Aesthetics is constantly evolving and advancing, and I love...
