Skin Care Services at Manhattan Surgical Care
Dr. Pakeman offers a wide array of non-surgical skin care and rejuvenation treatments, including:
BOTOX®, or botulinum toxin type A, is an injectable that blocks the nerve signals that cause facial muscle movement. A pause in muscle movement allows the overlying skin to relax, causing fine lines and wrinkles to be smoothed away.
Restylane® is a hyaluronic-acid-based dermal filler designed to add volume in areas that have lost collagen and tissue due to aging. The product caters to different cosmetic concerns like lip augmentation, moderate and harsh wrinkles, and hollow regions of the face.
Radiesse® treats moderate to severe wrinkles and folds in the midface by adding more volume. It can also restore volume in the backs of the hands. The Radiesse® formula is based on calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), which creates immediate structure and stimulates new collagen and elastin production.
Latisse® (bimatoprost) is a growth serum designed to increase eyelash growth. This FDA-approved medication restores lost eyelashes and improves the thickness, length, and color of lashes. It works by extending the period of the growth cycle where new eyelashes are produced.
Microdermabrasion is a skin care treatment performed to safely remove the upper layers of the skin. The goal of this treatment is to correct uneven skin tone and texture, photoaging, striae, melasma, and scars. Microdermabrasion can be performed once a week or once a month, depending on your skin goals.
Chemical peels are the secret to achieving glass skin. This treatment peels away the upper layers of the skin to reveal smoother and younger-looking skin. The peel level of the chemical agent can be light, medium, or deep. Chemical peels can reduce the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and uneven skin tone. It can also be a good acne treatment. During the session, an acid-based formula is applied to the skin for a specific duration and is then removed/neutralized.
The Obagi skin care product line is formulated to minimize and prevent mild to moderate signs of aging. What makes them different from other skin care products is that Obagi products are suitable for the entire Fitzpatrick Skin Spectrum, making them safe for all skin types.
At Manhattan Surgical Care, Restylane® can be injected to add more volume to the lips, making the lips look fuller and more aesthetically pleasing. This HA-based dermal filler attracts and bonds to water molecules for immediate volume in key areas of the lips.
Which Skin Care Treatment Is Right for Me?
Injectables like BOTOX® and Radiesse® primarily rejuvenate your facial appearance. While BOTOX® freezes the muscular activity that leads to deep folds, fillers like Radiesse® replace lost volume that leads to creases and wrinkles. Dr. Pakeman will recommend an injectable or injectable combination depending on the cause and location of the wrinkles you want to soften. Injectables are also used to plump up the volume and enhance the shape of the lips.
Our skin care services, including chemical peels and Obagi products, serve to refresh and nourish your skin, for a long-lasting youthful look. All of these procedures are non-surgical, and allow you to get back to your normal routine quickly while still providing effective results.

Schedule Your Consultation to Learn More
The only way to know which treatment is right for your goals is to visit Dr. Pakeman for a one-on-one consultation.
