Q. What is a good way to stay healthy this winter?
A. Liz Zabel, co-manager of the Emerson Spa at Emerson Resort & Spa, endorses easy, quick yoga poses to ward off winter travel bugs. “To change the blood flow and redirect pranic energy, lay on the floor for a few moments with your legs lifted over your head and against a wall,” says Zabel. “This simple pose helps relieve stress, calm the nervous system and spark the body’s inner ability to heal itself.”

Q: What sets your practice apart from other cosmetic surgery practices?
“Winning Best of Westchester’s Best Cosmetic Surgery Practice and Best Cosmetic Surgeon is a testament to my natural, beautiful results and to my team’s dedication to personalized, boutique-style care. Patients look years younger and are more productive in their lives. I routinely perform laser lid lifts, brow lifts, and mini facelifts in my office under local anesthesia. Recovery is rapid and most patients are back to work within a week. We also offer a panoply of avant-garde treatments to defy gravity and aging, including: PDO threadlifts; liquid facelifts; skin treatments (PRP, microneedling, IPL photofacial, science-based skin care, laser resurfacing); and hair rejuvenation (PRP, low-level laser therapy). Lastly, as a result of my successful and innovative festoon surgery, I have amassed a national and international clientele and am routinely asked to lecture all over the world.”

Q. How can easy treatments with injectables make you look fabulous?
“There are many simple and quick procedures with little or no downtime, that make you look brighter and healthier. One example is to combine fillers, such as Voluma, Restylane, Juvederm and/or Radiesse, with Botox, to fill wrinkles and folds while lifting and smoothing the face. We can eliminate dark circles under the eyes, enhance your lips, and soften those hated vertical lip lines. It’s a perfect time to treat your neck area and make a sharper jawline. We offer the latest technology in lasers, skin tightening, and InstaLift sutures. You can have smoother, younger, brighter skin! Our office is happy to discuss and customize all procedures to fit your needs.”

Q. Why have we seen an increase of beauty products containing CBD?
“Known for its natural anti-inflammatory effect, CBD promotes wellness from the inside and out! CBD interacts with our skin’s naturally occurring Cannabinoid receptors to be therapeutic, reducing the inflammation that causes acne, dry skin, redness, dark spots. Serums and moisturizers with CBD have been shown to be hydrating without clogging pores, anti-aging, firming, and strengthening, boosting overall skin health. At the Pharm Stand, we carry several brands showcasing their CBD beauty products such as Maria Valentino, Beauty Releaf, Joy Organics, and Mary’s Nutritional.”

Q. How has the emerging integration of technology affected your implant practice?
“Determining the best position for a dental implant is driven by the ideal placement of the tooth. The addition of an intraoral scanner, coupled with our low-radiation cone beam CT scan, have allowed us to diagnose and plan our implants better than has been possible in the past. We can create computer-generated guides in our office on one of our 3D dental printers to help ensure the implants are placed in the areas we planned with minimal surgery and maximum accuracy.”
