Skin Rejuvenation in New York with Dr. Jacobs
When you come in to visit our cosmetic surgery offices on Park Avenue in Manhattan, you will be cared for by Dr. Jacobs, our board certified plastic surgeon. He will evaluate the quality of your skin, listen carefully as you talk about the results you're seeking and help you understand the options – even procedures he doesn't offer – in terms of cost, downtime, risks and results. Then you'll have the information you need to make good decisions.
Dr. Jacobs makes recommendations to his patients based on several aspects of skin quality, one of the most important being skin color. It takes skill and experience to know how to achieve the best possible results without affecting pigment and creating unnatural looking pale spots. Dr. Jacobs favors two main treatments that can bring about results safely: dermabrasion and chemical peels.
Dermabrasion is a procedure that removes the top few layers of skin with a hand-held device. In a chemical peel, a solution is brushed onto your face and then neutralized and removed after a few minutes. For the right patient, these two approaches can smooth light to medium-depth wrinkles, soften the craters of acne scars, even out skin tone and brighten up a dull complexion.
In fact, to get the maximum effect without risk, Dr. Jacobs will often combine dermabrasion with a medium strength chemical peel. He'll use dermabrasion around the lips, for example, where skin is delicate. For patients with vertical lines above the upper lip, he'll strategically "paint" the chemical peel solution into the wrinkles. That way he can help banish those so-called smoker's lines while safeguarding the overall integrity of the skin.

Skin Rejuvenation FAQ
- Does Dr. Jacobs do light chemical peels?
Dr. Jacobs feels that light chemical peels often don't deliver the kinds of results his patients are seeking. If you determine that a light peel is the way you want to go, Dr. Jacobs will refer you to a reputable treatment center.
- Why doesn't Dr. Jacobs offer lasers and other options?
If you schedule appointments with a variety of skin care experts, you may discover that they tend to recommend the treatments they perform and shy away from discussing the choices they don't offer. This may be due to the fact that they know exactly what works and have selected their menu of procedures very carefully. But, recommendations can also be influenced by expensive equipment the doctor has purchased and needs to pay for.
Moreover, if you do research on some of the "new" treatments that involve various kinds of lasers and radiofrequency technology, you'll find that many patients are dissatisfied with their results. Some also complain about discomfort, the price tag and other aspects of their procedure.
Dr. Jacobs is an avid reader and researcher, and he also attends conferences frequently to keep up with changing technology. But when it comes to patient satisfaction, he prefers to err on the side of treatment that is proven to work and to be cost effective for the men and women in his care.
