NEW YORK, Dec. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- SkinCeuticals, the antioxidant authority and leader in developing skincare products backed by science, announces an exclusive menu of treatments debuting at the new Russak+ Aesthetic Center, an extension of Dr. Julie Russak's esteemed dermatology practice. Located next to the original Russak offices in the prestigious Galleria building in midtown Manhattan, Russak+ Aesthetic Center will introduce a new therapeutic treatment paradigm to help maintain and enhance healthy skin.
The SkinCeuticals exclusive treatment menu has been created to provide patients with an advanced and personalized approach. Dedicated to integrated skincare, SkinCeuticals complements powerful state-of-the-art medical procedures with premium products, to help patients achieve optimal skin health and anti-aging benefits. With a focus on providing a superior in-office experience, the clinical procedures are combined with homecare products for comprehensive correction and maintenance of results.
"We are excited to strengthen our relationship with Dr. Julie Russak and her medical practice. She shares in our philosophy of an integrated skincare approach and together we will continue to provide superior results," said Brenda Wu, General Manager, US of SkinCeuticals. "As advanced skincare innovators, our dermatology partners play a crucial role in our mission to improve skin health."
Traditionally, aesthetic medicine has only addressed surface imperfections in the skin, without targeting the cause. But together with SkinCeuticals, Dr. Julie Russak takes a holistic medical approach to help support skin repair and healing. The innovative new treatment menu consists of the Rejuvenating SkinCeuticals Decollete Treatment with Red Light Therapy and SkinCeuticals Dermaplaning Facial.
- The Rejuvenating SkinCeuticals Decollete Treatment with Red Light Therapy utilizes light based therapy to help improve the appearance of the neck and decollete in just 45 minutes. Based on individual skin type and concerns, the aesthetician will choose from a variety of specialty SkinCeuticals chemical peels, according to area. This multi-corrective treatment targets discoloration, firmness, texture, pore size, and oil production. For optimal results, red light is recommended every four weeks.
- SkinCeuticals Dermaplaning Facial utilizes a specialized SkinCeuticals dermaplane blade that works on a micro-thin layer to gently remove the surface layer of debris on skin, effectively prepping the skin for topical ingredients. This 60-minute treatment is finished with a light SkinCeuticals chemical peel, any necessary extractions and liquid nitrogen cryotherapy to give skin the appearance of resurfaced and rejuvenated skin.
"Educating my patients on how to care for their skin is key, which is why SkinCeuticals is an excellent partner. Our approach is more holistic because we focus on education and prevention for overall wellness. If you are knowledgeable on how the skin as an organ responds to internal and external stress, which in turn accelerates the aging process, you have won half the battle," says Dr. Russak. "I always explain the science behind any procedure or skincare regimen, ensuring my patient understand why it will work for them and what to expect."
Russak+ Aesthetic Center is located at 115 E 57th Street, Suite 1230 in New York City.
Founded in Dallas, TX in 1997, SkinCeuticals discovers, develops and delivers an advanced line of scientifically backed cosmeceutical treatments.
