Discover how our lasers or IPL treatment could help reduce the appearance of your veins and pigmented lesions.
We all want to have healthy beautiful skin. Unfortunately, there are many issues that can arise that can affect our appearance. From spider veins on your nose and face to pigmented lesions (brown patches) caused by years of sun worshipping, our Queens, NY, dermatologist Dr. Ted Brezel can improve the look of your skin with laser treatment.
Laser Treatment of Spider Veins
While most people have some spider veins somewhere on their legs, it’s a lot more obvious when they appear on your face. It can be unsightly and sometimes embarrassing. While sclerotherapy is often the preferred method to remove spider veins on the legs, facial veins are usually best treated with lasers/IPL.
Laser treatment for spider veins and pigmented lesions are performed right here in our office by our Glendale, NY, skin doctor. The whole process generally takes 15 minutes and there is no recovery time, which means that you can easily get back to your regular routine after treatment.
During the laser treatment, the laser light is directed over the veins to heat and destroy it. In the majority of cases, no anesthesia is necessary but if desired a numbing gel be applied to the treatment area prior to the laser therapy. Results can be seen with just one treatment but multiple sessions may be required to see complete resolution.
Laser Treatment of Pigmented Lesions
Whether you are dealing with brown spots that you just don’t like or you have darker areas of skin caused by the sun, our laser systems are exactly what you need to lighten these types of lesions. From freckles and moles to sunspots, we can tackle these issues to even out skin tone and reduce and even eliminate the appearance of these imperfections.
Just like with spider vein laser therapy, the laser light will be directed over the lesion where the heat from the laser will be absorbed by the pigmented skin causing the area to heat and eventually cause the pigmented area to be removed by the body. Over the course of a couple of weeks, the immune system will remove the pigmented area to reveal a lighter and more even skin tone.
Don’t let skin problems keep you from feeling confident with the way you look. Call Glendale Dermatology in Glendale, NY, today to find out if laser and IPL treatments can give you the results that you’ve been looking for.
Facial lines could be a thing of the past with Botox treatments.
Do you want to refresh your appearance and take years off your face? Our Glendale, NY, dermatologist, Dr. Ted Brezel, understands that many people want to look younger but don’t want to go through expensive and time-consuming procedures to do it. If this sounds like you then Botox may just be the perfect option for you.
What is Botox?
Chances are good that you’ve heard about Botox on TV or in magazines but how much do you actually know about this cosmetic procedure? Botox, when injected into the muscles of the face, interferes with the nerve signals being sent from the brain that tells the muscles to contract. Since the muscles aren’t able to contract, this smooths away certain wrinkles and lines.
What wrinkles and lines can Botox improve?
Take a moment to smile or squint in the mirror and you’ll quickly notice a host of lines and wrinkles appear across your face. Perhaps even once you stop making these facial expressions, these lines will still be visible. If these are the wrinkles you want to treat then Botox may be all you need to get the results you want.
Botox smooths away forehead wrinkles, those dreaded 11’s, and crow’s feet (lines around the eyes).
How is Botox administered?
Getting Botox is an extremely quick and easy procedure to undergo and has no recovery time. You’ll come in, our Glendale skin doctor will use a tiny needle to inject a small amount of the liquid into specific muscles of the face, and then you are good to go. It can take a few days to a week for the results to appear, and in most cases, you can expect to maintain your new appearance for approximately three to four months.

What your dermatologist in Glendale, New York would you to know
You may have already noticed some of the many signs of aging. These include the development of wrinkles, age spots, sagging of the skin as well as other issues. If you are a woman one often overlooked part is your vaginal area.
A woman’s body can go through a significant amount of stress in her lifetime these can include multiple or difficult childbirth, changing hormone levels that can be a result of menopause, medications or medical conditions, weight gain or just plain old aging which can cause dramatic changes to a woman’s vaginal area. In addition, a woman’s vaginal area suffers some of the same lack of elasticity that the rest of your body does. This loss of elasticity can lead to several issues.
Some of the more common signs of vaginal aging include:
- Vaginal laxity (loosening)
- Decreased sexual pleasure for both you and your partner
- Vaginal dryness
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- Excess, sagging vaginal tissue
- Incontinence and overactive bladder (urinary leakage)
Fortunately, there now is a treatment specifically designed for women to help reduce the signs of vaginal aging. It’s called Thermi Va and Dr Ted Brezel at Glendale Dermatology in Glendale, New York offers this exciting new treatment. There now is a revolutionary treatment that uses radiofrequency that can help rejuvenate and restore vaginal tissue to its more youthful state. All treatments are performed by a female medical assistant in complete privacy.
Thermi Va is performed using a lubricated disposable plastic probe that is gently inserted into the vagina. An electrode at the end of the probe emits a safe and painless radiofrequency energy that warms and rejuvenates vaginal tissue. The radio-frequency emitted by the probe can help strengthen the muscular support to the vagina and bladder helping to reduce those embarrassing leaks and frequent urgent bladder urges. It can also stimulate vaginal glands and collagen production increasing lubrication and decreasing vaginal laxity. This can improve dryness and sensitivity resulting in improved sexual gratification for both you and your partner. During the treatment, patients report experiencing a gentle warming sensation that has frequently been likened to a hot stone massage. A series of 3 monthly treatments are suggested and yearly maintenance treatments can be scheduled if so desired.
Advantages of Themi Va treatments are:
- Gentle treatments, similar to a hot stone massage
- Treatments that take approximately 45 minutes
- Probes are disposable and single-use only
- Painless, no anesthesia is required
- Easy, because there is no downtime

Are you beach body ready? You can get the body you've always wanted without surgery, needles, or downtime. CoolSculpting is an FDA cleared noninvasive treatment that removes stubborn fat without surgery, needles anesthesia or downtime. Dr. Ted Brezel of Glendale Dermatology in Glendale, NY was one of the first doctors in the New York area to offer the procedure and has been doing it for over 5 years.
How CoolSculpting Works- The procedure delivers cooling to target the fat cells below the surface of the skin. As a result of the freezing process the fat crystallizes, which destroys the fat cells. Over the next few weeks to months your body will eliminate the fat and fat cells naturally. Since the number of fat cells one has does not change over your lifetime once they are gone they are gone for good and will not return. In addition, since fat freezes at a higher temperature than other tissue there will be no damage to the skin or surrounding tissues.
What to Expect From the Procedure- After a protective gel pad is applied over the treatment area the CoolSculpting applicator is placed to deliver controlled cooling to the area. Once the treatment has been completed and the applicator is removed the area will be massaged for several minutes. The cooling process takes anywhere from 35 to 60 minutes.
Side Effects of CoolSculpting- With millions of CoolSculpting procedures performed worldwide it is the number one non-invasive fat removal procedure. It is proven to be both safe and effective for non-surgical fat reduction. The procedure is non-invasive and allows you to return to your normal activities immediately return to your normal activities. After the treatment most patients experience nothing more than some temporary numbness in the area that usually resolves in 1-2 weeks and is of no long-term consequence.

How wrinkle fillers from Glendale can help you look younger
If you are getting older, that doesn’t mean you have to look older. Thanks to modern, state-of-the-art dermatology treatments, you can take back what the years have done to your skin. One of the most effective tools in the arsenal against aging is wrinkle fillers. Dr. Ted Brezel at Glendale Dermatology in Glendale, NY, wants to share the facts about how wrinkle fillers can help you.
As you age, several things happen to your skin. It loses elasticity and volume, resulting in a loss of facial contouring and fullness that makes you look young. Another change that happens is your skin doesn’t snap back from facial expressions as quickly as when you were young. All of the smiling and laughing and other facial expressions create lines and wrinkles in your face, and guess what? The lines and wrinkles aren’t going away!
Wrinkle fillers work by “plumping up” your skin and filling in the wrinkles and fine lines. The result is smoother, younger looking skin and renewed fullness and youthful contours. Some of the problems wrinkle fillers can help are:
- Frown lines in your forehead, known as furrows
- Smile and laugh lines around your mouth and nose
- Lines between your eyebrows, known as glabella
- Loss of volume in cheeks and lips
Dr. Brezel can treat you with these wrinkle fillers:
- Restylane; uses hyaluronic acid to smooth wrinkles and fine lines
- Perlane; used to smooth deeper lines and wrinkles
- Juvederm; used to plump lips and smooth lip lines, lift and contour cheeks, and smooth wrinkles
- Radiesse; to restore lost volume
Dr. Brezel uses a tiny needle to inject small amounts of filler material into the treatment area. Treatment is easily tolerated, and you can request a numbing cream before treatment. Individual treatment amounts vary based on your individual characteristics and the areas treated.
If you don’t like what aging has done to your face, it’s time to fight off the early signs of aging with wrinkle fillers. For more information about wrinkle fillers and other cosmetic treatments call Dr. Brezel at Glendale Dermatology in Glendale, NY, today!
