4 New Ways to Refine Your Look at New Look New Life

Dr. Karlinsky is always looking for the latest and greatest treatments to help her NYC patients achieve their best looks. When it comes to non-surgical procedures, we believe in proven, high-quality treatments that provide men and women with beautiful results and minimal downtime—allowing them to get back to their fast-paced New York lifestyles.

With our new JOULE™ platform by Sciton®, we’ve just added even more options to help you achieve your best look. Here are the four new ways New Look New Life can help you achieve your aesthetic goals with our latest laser and light treatments.

#1 Put an end to aging skin.

Lines, wrinkles, spots, and a dull complexion get even the best of us as we get older. It’s simply a natural effect of aging. Our skin loses essential substances like collagen and elastin, and begins to show the effects of sun damage and other factors. How does the JOULE platform help?

There are actually multiple treatments that can be personalized to treat your specific concerns and achieve your desired outcome. Halo™ is a dual fractional laser that can be fully customized for your skin needs, helping to treat common problems ranging from lines and wrinkles to acne scars. Forever Young BBL™ and Forever Clear BBL™ both use JOULE platform’s revolutionary BroadBand Light™ (BBL™) technology to rejuvenate the look of your skin, helping to treat problems such as a dull complexion or stubborn acne.

#2 Tighten loose skin on your face and body.

One of the most frustrating things that can happen with age is areas of loose, excess skin. Whether it’s the result of significant weight loss, pregnancy, or simply aging, loose skin is a problem that often will not go away on its own. When diet and exercise is not enough, SkinTyte II™ can help.

SkinTyte II uses advanced infrared light energy to heat the deep, underlying layers of your skin. This stimulates your body’s natural healing response, resulting in tighter, firmer skin. Without the need for incisions or injections, you will be back to your regular routine just minutes after your SkinTyte treatment at New Look New Life.

#3 Say goodbye to unwanted hair.

Waking up early every day to shave that unwanted face or body hair is the enemy of many men and women. With the painful ripping and pulling, waxing is no better an option. What’s worse is the hair just keeps coming back. Forever Bare BBL™ gives men and women a new way to reduce unwanted face and body hair with long-lasting results. Using the same BBL technology as Forever Young BBL and Forever Clear BBL, Forever Bare BBL is able to target specific areas of unwanted hair and achieve soft, bare skin with personalized treatment sessions at our NYC practice. The hair follicles are destroyed safer, faster, and more comfortable than other laser hair removal treatments—many even compare it to a hot stone massage.

#4 Rejuvenate your most intimate of areas.

It’s not something that is casually talked about or brought up in regular conversation, but the truth is, many women struggle with the same issue—changes to the vaginal area as they get older. Pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause all can leave you feeling much different than you did just years before.

diVa™ is a new laser treatment that helps address the various vaginal concerns women experience as they get older. This laser vaginal rejuvenation treatment can help with vaginal looseness or dryness, and often has women feeling more confident with their partners. diVa can also help with medical concerns such as stress urinary incontinence (SUI), vulvovaginal atrophy, and painful sex (dyspareunia).

With diVa treatments lasting just 3-5 minutes, you can get back to feeling like your sexy and confident self without having to put your life on hold.
