According to Dr. Sheryl Clark, a board-certified dermatologist in New York City, that similar chemical composition makes Jeuveau the most similar to Botox in terms of outcomes. “Recent data have shown that the complexing proteins that surround the active molecular core in Jeuveau and Botox are necessary for the best results,” she said in an interview with RealSelf, “and other forms of [botulinum toxin], such as Xeomin and Dysport, either lack these complexing proteins or have lesser amounts of it.”

Personal Health - New York Times

…During heating season, daily use of a moisturizer product is more important than daily bathing, according to Dr. Sheryl Clark, a dermatologist affiliated with the New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center. Take brief showers and baths, use mild soap (for example, Dove or Neutrogena) and use tepid water, since hot water is more drying. Most people need not soap their entire body every time they bathe. Add bath oil after you have been in the tub at least five minutes. Pat — don’t rub — your skin dry and, while your body is still slightly damp, apply a cream moisturizer that contains water and oil.

Wear rubber gloves when doing household chores that involve water. Outdoors wear clothing, including a face mask, to protect your skin from drying winds. Apply a moisturizer to exposed skin, including your lips, before going out. If your skin is sensitive, Dr. Clark suggests avoiding products that are scented or that contain lanolin. Don’t lick dry lips; that dries them even more. Keep hand lotion at home and at work and use it as often as possible….

10 Dermatologists Recommend Their Favorite Exfoliator Under $75

“I am not fond of physical abrasives—they clog pores with bits of dead skin, which can lead to whiteheads and irritation and create a mild barrier defect. Glycolic acid and retinoids are the most effective nonmechanical exfoliants. I really like this one because it is not sticky, unlike every other glycolic acid I have tried—glycolic acid is derived from sugar cane, so getting around the sticky texture can be difficult—and it [also contains] vitamins A, C, and E, green tea, and CoQ10.” —New York City board-certified dermatologist Dr. Sheryl Clark

Compassionate Doctor Award

The Compassionate Doctor Recognition has again been granted to Dr. Clark.

Compassionate Doctor certification is granted to physicians who treat their patients with the utmost kindness. The honor is granted by patients based on a physician’s overall and bedside manner scores.

Top Doctor Award

Dr. Clark is named a Castle Connolly Top Doctor for 2021

The first step to becoming a Castle Connolly Top Doctor is through a nomination process. Every year, Castle Connolly surveys tens of thousands of practicing physicians across the US. After a doctor is nominated by his or her peers, their physician-led research team screens each doctor to confirm whether he or she meets Castle Connolly standards. Castle Connolly evaluates professional qualifications, education, hospital and faculty appointments, research leadership, professional reputation and disciplinary history, as well as outcomes data. Peers are asked to consider not only the training and clinical skills of the physicians they nominate, but also interpersonal skills such as listening and communicating effectively, demonstrating empathy, and instilling trust and confidence. Dr. Clark has been named a Top Doctor every year since 1999.

In the midst of all the preparations for the big event, what are the groom’s concerns? When he pictures his wedding, whether he is striding atop an elephant or sitting under the mandap with his bride and her family, his wish is likely to be as handsome and virile as his bride is beautiful and glowing. Men may not always care about wrinkles or furrows, but what they hate more than anything is a receding hairline and scalp show at the crown.

Cool Device Gives Love Handles The Cold Shoulder

There’s new hope for people who are physically fit but have a stubborn bulge around the middle. NY1’s Cheryl Wills filed the following report.

Fifty-something-year-old Noemi Castro-Feinstein is like millions of Americans: She’s healthy and physically fit but no matter what she does she can still pinch more than an inch.

“With the baby, even though you exercise you have a tiny little reminder that it was stretched out to capacity,” says Castro-Feinstein.

Dr. Sheryl Clark, a dermatologist on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, uses a device called coolsculpting to get rid of stubborn fat around the middle and the lovehandles. She explains that the applicator is really more like a vacuum with two plates inside.

“And when this is applied the vacuum will take her skin up and it’s rather a dramatic effect,” says Clark.

Once applied, the cold air rushes in within seconds and the plates clamp down on the bulge, causing fat cells to slowly disintegrate.

“The cold is constantly monitored because you don’t want to freeze the skin. That could cause frostbite,” notes Clark.

Dr. Clark says there are no risks associated with the procedure. Patients experience just a little tenderness in the treated area because they have to sit still while the applicator sucks the skin for an entire hour. But Dr. Clark says the procedure reduces bulges over time by at least 25 percent and the results are permanent.
