New CoolSculpting Applicator

Dr. Narins now uses the CoolSculpting CoolAdvantage applicator for optimized treatment on the abdomen, flanks and inner-thighs. This device allows Dr. Narins to treat more areas that previously were not easily treatable by CoolSculpting in much less time.

The CoolAdvantage Applicator comes with three interchangeable contours, each specified for a different area of the body.

Along with a more concentrated treatment on specific areas of the body, the CoolAdvantage Applicator boasts a shorter treatment time of only 35 minutes, cutting treatment time nearly in half. Patients have also reported greater comfort due to the enhanced cup design.

Kybella Injection Offers Non-Surgical Slim Down of Double Chin

Dr. Narins helped conduct two clinical trials for the newly FDA-approved Kybella injectable. Kybella is a non-surgical method to dissolve fat cells and is the first of its kind to be approved for the use of reducing the look of a double chin. Dr. Narins has treated many patients with Kybella.

Kybella dissolves fat cells and allows plastic surgeons and dermatologists to reshape the chin area without surgery. During the two clinical trials, more than 1,000 patients were treated, with 68.2% seeing successful reduction of the look of their problem area. M.R.I. scans of treated patients also showed that under-chin volume had decreased.

Kybella, manufactured by Kythera, was recently mentioned in this New York Times article.

Dr. Narins Lectures at Beauty and Aging Panel

Dr. Narins was part of a distinguished panel at Barnard College of Columbia University lead by the President of Barnard, Debora Spar that included the editor of Cosmo, Joanna Coles, the author of “The Beauty Myth”, Naomi Wolf and author/model, Dayle Haddon. Is the desire to look pretty imbedded in our genes and present since caveman days (“Survival of the Prettiest by the Nancy Etcoff”) or promoted by the media to an impossibly unattainable end? Do people really treat us better when we look better and do WE feel better as well when we look better? The answer to these questions is yes!!! These and other issues were discussed in a lively informative debate followed by questions from the audience.

Dr. Narins explained the newer non-surgical techniques that can help people look better and fresher with minimal non-surgical treatment. She explained the importance of looking healthier, more glowing and younger but natural. When treated correctly, no one should know you had anything done. It was an exciting evening.

Allumera UltraIPL

Dr. Narins now offers UltraIPL treatments, using Allumera, a brand new topical levunonic acids pre-IPL cream. Allumera has been clinically proven to:

  • Minimize the appearance of pores
  • Produce revitalized, younger looking, clearer and more beautiful skin
  • Reduce the appearance of crows feet, fine lines, and dark circles
  • Make your skin texture feel smoother, supple and more moisturized

Allumera is non-invasive, well tolerated, and has minimal downtime. It works in conjunction with application of an Intensed Pulsed Light treatment to achieve optimal anti-aging results.

XEOMIN® and Belotero® Facial Rejuvenation

Dr. Narins now offering innovative new treatments for facial wrinkles and folds.

XEOMIN is for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines, or frown lines between the eyebrows, in adult patients. Like BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®, Xeomin works by blocking nerve signals to the muscles that cause facial wrinkles. What makes Xeomin unique is that it contains no additives; Xeomin is only botulinum toxin type A. This greatly lessens the chance of an allergic reaction to injection. Xeomin is produced by Merz Aesthetics, the makers of Radiesse® volumizing filler, as well as another, new dermal filler, called Belotero.

Belotero is a Hyaluronic acid dermal filler, made of the same volumizing and moisturizing component of natural skin, that subtly reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. When injected, it instantly plumps and adds volume to the areas where it has been lost. Even the finest lines can be treated effectively with Belotero. Unlike other fillers, patients are unlikely to feel the implant, but will certainly see the refreshing results. 

CoolSculpting® by Zeltiq

Dr. Rhoda Narins now offers a new non-invasive fat loss procedure:

  • Reduce stubborn fat without surgery, needles, or lasers.

    Developed by Harvard scientists, CoolSculpting®  is a unique, patented, clinically proven procedure that works by freezing fat cells without damaging your skin.

  • Fast and Effective

    Patients can return to their everyday lives after treatment with no downtime. On average, patients experience a 20% reduction of fat in the treated area after one visit. Additional appointments can be scheduled if deemed necessary to reduce even more fat.

Fraxel Skin Rejuvenation

Fraxel treatment is a revolutionary laser treatment that helps remove years from your appearance so you can regain a more youthful look.

Whether you have sun damage, wrinkles or other signs of aging, treatment with Fraxel delivers remarkable results with fast recovery so you can quickly return to work or other activities with renewed skin—and renewed confidence.

The range of Fraxel treatments vary in aggressiveness, downtime, number of procedures needed and results. The most aggressive treatment, Fraxel re:pair, can produce dramatic improvement for severely damaged skin. This is a single treatment procedure, but will require more downtime and after treatment wound care. Less aggressive treatments, like Fraxel re:store or Fraxel re:fine, can produce significant results for mild to moderately damaged skin over the course of 3 to 6 treatments. Typically, there is no after treatment wound care with these treatments and downtime is minimal.
