Call the location nearest you or schedule online to learn how you can erase wrinkles today.
Wrinkles and lines are a natural part of the aging process. With the years, your body slows down the production of certain tissue compounds, namely hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin. These compounds give your skin strength, flexibility, elasticity, and plumpness. When these compounds go missing, your skin starts to sag, thin, and wrinkle.
Lines and wrinkles form around your eyes, on your forehead, on the cheeks, around the lips, and on your neck. An expressive face can also cause wrinkles to form with time. As you smile, frown, or squint repeatedly, the lines etch into your skin.
Sun exposure, lifestyle habits (such as smoking or excessive drinking), genetics, and exposure to pollutants can increase the rate at which wrinkles form, too.
Many cosmetic dermatological treatments help with the appearance of wrinkles. These include:
Botox injections reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles by temporarily easing the muscle activity that causes expression. With expert application from Dr. Rachel R. Kushner Dermatology, you look softer, and your skin is smoother, but you don’t appear frozen or as if you’ve had “work” done. Botox is safe, well researched, and FDA-approved.
Dermal fillers available at Dr. Rachel R. Kushner Dermatology include Juvederm®, Radiesse®, and Restylane®. They are gel-like compounds injected into your skin to restore hydration and compounds that plump the skin to ease the look of lines and wrinkles.
Microdermabrasion is an intensive exfoliating treatment that rids you of the dull, outer layer of skin. By removing old skin cells and encouraging the rejuvenation of new ones, you get a smoother, younger-looking complexion.
Dr. Rachel R. Kushner Dermatology offers glycolic acid peels that are noninvasive and can refine the texture of your skin. They improve your appearance by sloughing away old, dead cells to reveal younger-looking skin and a radiant complexion.
Erbium laser skin resurfacing by Alma Harmony® is a gentle laser treatment that diminishes wrinkles and improves sun-damaged skin.
Dr. Rachel R. Kushner Dermatology offers the most up-to-date technology that helps you achieve your aesthetic goals. Your provider performs a comprehensive exam of your skin and does a thorough discussion of your goals to determine which products and treatments are best for you.
I've been a patient of Dr. Kushner for years now, but I just visited the Farmingdale office for the first time. I had an amazing experience: the office is clean, crisp, and brightly lit. The office staff are friendly and helpful. My wait was negligible and as always, Dr. Kushner addressed my issue in a professional and efficient manner. Highly recommend
I love the accommodations and the heart felt care this office provides there patients. I have a very hectic work and mom schedule and they have always been able to work around my schedule. (Especially weekend office hours) On my most stressfull days with my illness they have always attended with kindness and concern for my care. Pharmacies have always been called the minute you are done with your office visit. Which shows me a prompt and responsible treatment they provide to there patients.
Dr Kushner has always been kind, dedicated and a fantastic doctor. I wouldn’t go anywhere else I took my husband who is in a wheelchair and cannot walk for a small procedure. Dr Kushner was patient and total professional with him Highly recommend Dr Kushner
The lady at the front desk, as well at the PA/MA were so great! I was very pleased with the PA, she was so nice, very honest and professional, specially in this time and date we need more medical professionals like her. I love your practice so much that I brought my daughter there, and made an appointment for my mother too who lives in Queens. Keep up the good work!
Love Doctor Kushner and her staff. I am a new patient and I was very pleased with my visit with her. Very patient, Dr Kushner took her time with me, I did not feel rushed. I love her pleasantness. Her staff is very pleasant and responsive to any questions you may have. Office is clean
