Our team is pleased to provide the latest technologies and noninvasive treatments for patients who wish to improve their appearance without surgery. ThermiTight®, as recently covered by Allure Magazine, Elle Magazine, and The Doctors television show, is one of our newer treatments.

ThermiTight® is the first aesthetic treatment that can reverse the signs of aging by tightening skin through the delivery precise, painless thermal energy beneath the skin of the face, abdomen, thighs, and neck. ThermiTight® counters skin laxity and can shrink tissues that also cause bra bulge and love handles.

Minimally invasive ThermaTight® involves miniscule probes into the skin that direct radiofrequency energy into targeted areas. Small fibers heat the designated tissues which tightens skin and reduces stubborn fat deposits.  The procedure is typically performed in under an hour, with local anesthetic, in our well-appointed and comfortable office. Long-lasting results are visible immediately but continue to work over time. Patients normally experience little discomfort or recovery time, and usually return to daily activities the next day.

To determine if a patient is an ideal candidate for ThermiTight®, Dr. Shelton conducts a comprehensive and personalized consultation. Afterward, a customized plan of care is designed to meet each patient’s unique needs and concerns.

To find out if ThermaTight® is right for you, call our friendly team at Laser and Skin Surgery Center of New York  today at 212.561.5808. Formerly practicing in Upper East Side, Dr. Shelton is now located at 317 East 34th Street in New York, NY.


Double chin? Turkey neck? Fat around the neck? NYC patients find effective treatment options, including CoolSculpting Mini™

CoolSculpting™ technology, introduced by Zeltiq Aesthetics, has become a popular and successful treatment for patients seeking to eliminate stubborn fat cells. In fact, CoolSculpting™ is the most requested noninvasive procedure for fat reduction and Zeltiq was named the #1 medical device company in the United States in 2014. The treatment is based upon a medical and scientific process called Cryoliposis, which freezes fat cells, causing them to eventually disintegrate and flush from the body without risk of the fat returning.

Dr. Ron Shelton, board-certified dermatologist specializing in many advanced areas of the field, including Moh’s Micrographic Surgery for cancer treatment, and cosmetic and surgical dermatology, incorporated the CoolSculpting™ procedure into his practice when the technology was introduced and has been achieving significant patient outcomes since.

Dr. Shelton and our team at Laser and Skin Surgery Center of New York, conveniently located in midtown Manhattan, is pleased to offer the latest version of CoolSculpting™ revolutionary treatment, using the same advanced science of freezing fat to permanently eliminate the stubborn deposits using noninvasive technology.

Because of Dr. Shelton’s significant experience and high patient satisfaction with CoolSculpting™, our office was one of the select practices to serve as a research facility for CoolMini™, which has recently been cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of fat under the chin, often referred to as double chin or turkey neck. In a clinical trial, 60 patients between 22 and 65 years of age achieved an average of 20 percent reduction in the appearance of double chins. As with CoolSculpting™, when the fat is removed, it will not return to the area again.

In addition to being one of the more experienced physicians with the new technology of CoolMini™, Dr. Shelton is an award winning physician, professor, and author, as well as a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology who has had extensive training in many specialty areas of dermatology, including aesthetic and cosmetic dermatologic surgery.

Respected by patients and peers in NYC, Dr. Shelton was previously located in Upper East Side. Our practice is now located in midtown Manhattan at 317 East 34th Street. Call us today at 212.561.5808 today.

Patients in New York see significant improvement in double chin appearance after Kybella® injections

Cosmetic and surgical dermatology has advanced significantly over the years. Patients have many options when it comes to reducing the signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. As we age and skin loses elasticity, extra folds of skin can impair our youthful radiance. Certain areas of the body have been more challenging to treat than others, such as the neck and double chin area.

A double chin, referred to in medical terminology as submental fullness, may be caused by excess fat, family history, and age. Even patients who are otherwise fit or toned can experience the effect of a double chin.

At the practice of Dr. Ron Shelton – Laser and Skin Surgery Center of New York – conveniently located in midtown Manhattan, our board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Ron Shelton, and our professional medical skin care team offer an extensive array of cosmetic, laser, medical, and surgical dermatology. Dr. Shelton is an award-winning physician, educator, and author, recognized as a Top Doctor and a Best Doctor in NYC.

We are pleased to offer a groundbreaking treatment for patients dealing with the unpleasant condition known as double chin. After extensive research and recent, successful clinical trials, Kybella® has become the first, and is the only, injection that has received the approval of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for improving the appearance of mild to serious double chin. This approval was acknowledged in April of 2015.

The main ingredient in Kybella® injection is deoxycholic acid, based upon a molecule that exists naturally in the human body and helps to absorb and breakdown fat. Once the deoxycholic acid has been precisely injected into the fat cells in a double chin, the cells are destroyed and will never accumulate fat again. The number of treatments depend upon each patient’s unique needs and concerns. Dr. Shelton designs a personalized treatment plan after a comprehensive and attentive consultation.

Dr. Shelton is a respected and experienced physician who believes that enhancements to a patient’s appearance should be natural-looking and conservative for the best clinical outcomes. He is known to patients and peers as a leading doctor and surgeon in advanced dermatology treatments. Formerly located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Dr. Shelton’s practice is now located at 317 East 34th Street, New York.
