Cosmetic Dermatology

With the continued development of non-invasive treatments, cosmetic dermatology has expanded greatly over the last ten years. Cutting-edge technologies and novel treatments can address a variety of concerns, such as scarring, skin laxity and volume loss, and uneven skin tone.

Dr. Judith Hellman, a New York board-certified dermatologist, specializes in minimally invasive, cosmetic treatments. Dr. Hellman often uses a combination of techniques to realize the aesthetic goals of her patients and achieves balanced, natural-looking results. At her Manhattan office, she offers the most advanced treatments that can help you improve the overall texture of skin and revitalize your appearance.


Fractora, an advanced technology, can reduce acne scars by activating the skin’s own healing potential. The Fractora device emits radiofrequency (RF) energy that prompts new collagen production and encourages the skin to regenerate.

BOTOX® or Dysport®

These two injectable cosmetic treatments are the most requested rejuvenation procedures
in the United States. Safe and effective, BOTOX® and Dysport® temporarily relax facial
muscle movement to gently smooth out wrinkles and creases.

Dark Circle Removal

Imperfections and dark circles under the eyes can age the appearance. Fractora treatments
can be customized to treat the delicate skin beneath the eyes, resulting in a more alert
and refreshed appearance.

Cellulite Treatment

Even when mild, skin laxity in the upper eyelids can weigh the eyes down. Efficient and
painless, Refirme ST/ Forma RF treatments can tighten and restore saggy eyelids, opening
the eyes and brightening the face.

Glycolic Peels

Everyday exposure to the sun, a stressful lifestyle, and other imbalances can wear on the
skin and make it lackluster. Derived from sugar cane, glycolic acid can erase fine
lines, reduce blemishes and discoloration, and give the skin a smooth and even finish.

Lip Enhancement

Full lips can give the face a youthful and alluring appeal. Injectable hyaluronic fillers
such as Perlane® can temporarily plump the lips and enhance one of our most gorgeous


A popular skin resurfacing treatment, microdermabrasion is an excellent treatment for
superficial skin imperfections and scarring. During the exfoliating treatment, the skin
is gently abraded to reveal a new layer of healthy skin.

Non-surgical Brow Lift

A furrowed brow and fine lines in the upper face can add years to the appearance. Reverse
the signs of aging with Refirme ST/ Forma RF, a non-surgical procedure that can
dramatically lift a saggy brow and firm the forehead.

Non-surgical Neck Lift

Often overlooked in an anti-aging program, the neck can be a challenging area to treat
without the aid of surgery. Morpheus 8 is one of the most effective non-invasive
skin-firming treatments available, powerful enough for even the neck and jowl area.

Non-surgical Under Eye Bag 

Puffiness and bags under the eyes can make you look overworked and exhausted–even if you
are well-rested. Fractora RF treatments can revive the appearance of the eye area in a
single session.


Composed of calcium microspheres, Radiesse® injectable filler gives the skin structure as
it stimulates new collagen production and prompts the renewal process. Radiesse® is
excellent for reducing smile lines, downward turned corners of the mouth, and a sagging
jowl area.

Restylane® and Restylane Lyft®

Safe and effective, hyaluronic acid-based fillers such as Restylane® and Perlane® are
among the most popular volumizing treatments available. These non-surgical options can
address moderate to severe wrinkles, including nasolabial folds, fine lines and creases,
and yield immediate results.
