Wrinkles NYC Treatment Center in New York, NY we have noticed that women are more likely than men to have more (and deeper) wrinkles at least in one area of the face - around the mouth. These wrinkles (known in medical terms as perioral wrinkles) are believed to be more severe in women for several reasons: Compared to men, women's perioral (around the mouth) skin contains fewer sweat and sebaceous (oil) glands. Compared to men, women's perioral skin contains fewer blood vessels. More blood vessels mean more oxygen and other nutrients are delivered to the skin. More oxygen and nutrients = more resilient, youthful skin.

Compared to men, the muscular fibers surrounding a woman's mouth have a closer, tighter attachment to the dermis. It is believed that this may cause a downward pull on the skin's surface, thereby creating more pronounced wrinkles. Treating wrinkles in this area of the face is challenging, because the use of Botox in this area is generally not recommended. Although not unheard of, it is interesting to note that attempting to correct perioral wrinkles through surgical means (like a face lift) can result in an odd-appearing, "pulled" look around the mouth. To this end, we must develop a better understanding of why women wrinkle more in this area.

At New York Dermatology Dr. Rothfeld has developed over the years new advanced techniques that resolve this problem of perioral wrinkles in women.

New York Dermatology by Board Certified  Dermatologist Dr. Gary Rothfeld  is a board certified NYC  Dermatologist with a  New York City office in Manhattan, New York  providing expert skin care, dermatology, and cosmetic dermatology services.  A Park Avenue practice with an international reputation in general, cosmetic, and surgical dermatology.

I personally see every new patient who visits our office. I am not just a physician, I am a Board Certified Dermatologist. My goal is, quite simply, to provide the type of dermatology care which I  would seek for my own family. This is a very important point, since physicians often use the phrase "Doctor's Doctor" to refer to those individuals who typically are selected by physicians themselves for personal care. I am confident that my practice fully meets that definition. This is the type of 5-star care and service that our patients expect, deserve and receive. I treat every patient the way I would want to be treated: with courtesy, dignity and respect. I carefully listen to their hair and skin-care concerns and offer a variety of options including a treatment plan that I believe will give them the best results 

Dr Gary sees every patient himself and  believes in personalized care. The Doctor does not employ any physician assistants, nurse practitioners, or other physician substitutes to do his treatment. He sees every patient himself at every visit.

A significant percentage of my Hair Loss,Dermatology and Cosmetic Dermatology Conditions are diagnosed  on listening to the medical history of the patient alone, a further percentage on examination and the remainder on further detailed or careful examination and my patients teach me the rest. It is clear to me that history and examination skills remain at the very core of my dermatology practice. Older Dermatologists like myself rely on history and physical to a greater degree than the younger dermatologists.  I think that the pendulum has swung too far towards all these cosmetic procedures where the younger dermatologists are just doing cosmetic procedures and not listening to their patients.  This is an important point because if the Dermatologist does not spend enough time with the patient during the consult the cosmetic procedures will probably not work.
