NEW YORK, Sept. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Choosing the right doctor when opting for cosmetic procedures can be a confusing process. Referrals from peers and subsequent costs often become determining factors rather than the physician's experience and results. Patients need to be educated on the right questions to ask and often times immediately go in search of a plastic surgeon for treatment. However, Board Certified Dermatologists can offer a skilled, safe and less invasive approach to modern cosmetic treatments.
Dermatologists are experts in the medical, surgical and cosmetic treatment of skin, hair and nails and have been responsible for major advances in skin rejuvenation techniques, advanced laser technology and cellulite treatments as well as smart and power liposuction. Facilities like the renowned JUVA Skin & Laser Center in New York, which is a full service AAAHC accredited surgery center that offers cutting edge laser treatments, body contouring and cosmetic surgery procedures, opt for local anesthesia when treating their patients. This approach ensures a safe, time effective procedure with minimal downtime for the patient.
"Many people don't realize the benefits of visiting a Board Certified Dermatologist when seeking cosmetic procedures," says Dr. Bruce Katz, Director of JUVA Skin & Laser Center "Not only do many dermatologists train plastic surgeons in areas such as cellulite treatment and liposuction, at JUVA we regularly have plastic surgeons visiting us from around the world to train side by side with our exceptional team of dermatologists and plastic surgeons in our renowned facility."
The JUVA Skin & Laser Center's director, Bruce E. Katz, M.D., is not only a Board Certified Dermatologist but Dr. Katz also serves as Clinical Professor of Dermatology at The Mount Sinai School of Medicine and Director of the Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Clinic at Mount Sinai Medical
