Brooklyn is getting a new playground thanks in part to volunteers from Disney, the Sea Gate Association, WABC-TV and KaBOOM! The building of the Lindy Park playground, which is based on children's drawings, will begin Friday, and Disney volunteers have already started setting up materials.
California-based dermatologist Christine Lee has helped create a new treatment that uses the Fotona SP Dynamis, a nonablative laser, to tighten tissue and reduce wrinkles from inside the mouth. "[I]t does some of the things a filler does but appears much more natural, and you're not having to inject a foreign substance in your face," Lee said.
Dr. Patrick Flaharty of Azul Cosmetic Surgery and Medical Spa describes two main types of wrinkles: dynamic wrinkles, which are the result of movements repeated over years (such as smiling); and static wrinkles, the result of gravity and the loss of skin's natural elasticity, fat and collagen. Treatments to correct wrinkles can include Botox injections, fillers, chemical peels, lasers, dermabrasion, lotions and creams, alone or in combination.
Focal acne scar treatment, a new laser procedure developed by N.Y. dermatologist Dr. Eric Schweiger, is said to eliminate acne scars in one 15-minute visit. "It works by sending heat down into the dermis, which can stimulate new collagen to fill in lines or wrinkles or scarring," Schweiger said.
The Third Eye Retroscope, a colonoscopy tool recently approved by the FDA, increases polyp detection by 25%, according to a WABC-TV report. The device highlights areas of the colon that often are left in the dark, allowing gastroenterologists to get a better view and find potentially cancerous polyps that may be hidden in tissue folds.
