Announcing a NEW TECHNIQUE for the treatment of Rolling and Box Car Acne Scarring

I have developed a new technique I call : “Subtunneling” to treat deep strophic acne scars.
I learned Subcision from its inventor Dr. Orentreich in 1997.
This was during my Dermatology Residency at Mount Sinai Medical center in NY.
Later I learned Acne scarring treatments such as lasers and dermabrasion from the co-developer
of Retin A Dr James Fulton In 1999.
I am proud and honored to make a small contribution to
this field with this new and innovative technique. 
Subtunneling involves using various gauge needles (20 gauge, 18 gauge, 16 gauge) at various
depths in the skin ( intra-dermal, deep dermal etc) to make small tunnels
using the bevel of the needle for the placement of fillers such as Sculptra and Bellafill.
This techniques allows the treatment of deep rolling and boxcar scarring with minimal downtime. 
Call us for more information or come in for a complementary consultation.

Is accutane safe? How about Absorbica, Accutane, Isotretinion, Myorisan, Amnesteen, Clavaris??


Is Accutane still available? Is it safe? What is the difference between Absorbica, Accutane, Isotretinion, Myorisan, Amnesteen, Clavaris

I have practiced Dermatology and Cosmetic surgery since 1995. I have treated several hundred patients with Isotretinion and its generic equivalents. I can tell you without any doubt that this is one of the best and most effective medications on the market today.

Accutane is derived from Vitamin A and shrinks the sebaceous glands and pores and can significantly reduce acne. Ninety percent of my patients never have acne again. 10% need a second a rarely a third course.  Unfortunately this medication is widely misunderstood.  A very small percentage of patients can have side effects ranging from dry eyes, and dry skin to mood disorders such as depression of inflammation of the digestive tract. Most of these side effects are mild and they do resolve after stopping the medication. It breaks my hard to see a patient experiencing deep cystic and scarring acne who is afraid to even try low dose Accutane.

My advice is this: find a good dermatologist, make sure it is right for you and try a course of it.

At any given point I have between 20 and 50 patients on Accutane.
