Medical and cosmetic dermatologist Dennis Gross, M.D., upgrades his 13-year-old skin-care center from a midtown brownstone to a landmark Fifth Avenue building facing Central Park. The naturally lit spa has eight treatment rooms for an array of laser procedures, including hair removal ($150–$500) and specific modalities that target wrinkles, correct discoloration, shrink pores and firm skin ($250–$1,200). While you can get a standard medical facial ($200), regulars flock here for peels ($225–$500) ranging in strength from curing light acne to correcting aged skin from sun damage. The 30-minute Photo Peel ($825) combines an alpha-beta peel with a photo-rejuvenation laser treatment to stimulate collagen and is said to immediately ward off wrinkles. To enhance the laser treatments, Dr. Gross will create a personalized cocktail of injectables, including Botox, Juviderm, Perlane or Restylane ($550–$1,000). Maintain your service at home with Hydra-pure Vitamic C brightening serums ($95) or alpha-beta daily glow moisturizers ($42) from the house-brand skin-care line.
