Advanced Dermatology Laser & Cosmetic Surgery

Look good and feel special this new year. If you have concerns about your skin, take them to Dr. Eyal Levit of Advanced Dermatology Laser & Cosmetic Surgery (1220 Avenue P, 718-375-SKIN). In addition to providing a full range of services in his specialty, Dr. Levit has wide experience and expertise in skin cancer surgery. In fact, Dr. Levit has completed two separate fellowships in Mohs and cosmetic surgery, following his dermatology residency at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center at Columbia University. He is a Board-certified dermatologist, an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, a director of a new procedural dermatology fellowship accredited by the ACGME and the Director of Dermatologic & Cosmetic Surgery at St. Luke’s Hospital, Columbia University. The Advanced Dermatology Laser & Cosmetic Surgery practice specializes in skin cancer surgery and prevention as well as facial and body reconstruction and rejuvenation. Dr. Levit says he has spared “no expense in acquiring the newest and most accurate and state-of-the-art equipment” for his office, assuring patients that they have access to a topnotch surgeon as well as the latest technology. The nurses, too, receive on-going training from Dr. Levit and they attend monthly conferences at Columbia University. The entire staff is experienced, friendly, compassionate, and available to help answer your questions and ease your concerns. This is because they know that skin cancer can be frightening. “Our goal is to make your treatment easy, and your cure a certainty,” he says. While melanoma “is the most serious form of skin cancer,” the doctor says that, “If diagnosed and removed while it is still thin and limited to the outermost skin layer, it is almost 100% curable.” Visiting the doctor promptly is important. “Once the cancer advances and metastasizes to other parts of the body, it is hard to treat and can be deadly.” Unfortunately, during the past 10 years, “the number of cases of melanoma has increased more rapidly than that any other cancer,” he says. “Over 51,000 new cases are reported to the American Cancer Society each year.” He says that most likely, “a great many more are unreported.” Currently, there are several ways to treat skin cancer, and Dr. Levit and his staff can supply the information and explain the details. Many patients also seek the services of Advanced Dermatology Laser & Cosmetic Surgery for other concerns, including cosmetic procedures. Here, the philosophy is to provide “the safest, the most natural, and the longest-lasting results for rejuvenating your face and body.” Again, patients are assured that the technology used is “the newest and most accurate,” and that staff and doctors are well-trained. Laser treatments include hair removal, removal of tattoos, age spots, scars, port wine stains, wrinkles, and more. The doctor also treats common conditions such as acne, using “effective light that kills the bacteria believed to be responsible for the pimples, while sparing the normal skin structures and its flora.” Stretch marks may also be treated using the latest technology. Many people desire to erase the signs of aging with Botox treatments. Botox has been used by Dr. Levit since 1999 to smooth out wrinkles and reduce excessive sweating in both men and women. It improves the appearance of lines on the forehead, eliminates or eases frown lines, and the lines around the eyes, the doctor says. Dr. Levit has also used Botox “to reshape the eyebrows, giving a more youthful and open appearance to the eyes,” he says. It is important to note that Dr. Levit is fully trained in the proper use of Botox.
