located at 25 Montauk Highway in Quogue, is now offering skin care treatments, including facials and peels.
Dr. Tracy Pfeifer, a board certified plastic surgeon, who also has locations in Great Neck and Manhattan, says she wanted to add another dimension to her business.
"I think it will bring more traffic into the office," said Pfeifer. "People are always looking to find out what they can do for their skin."
Pfeifer says that while skin care treatments in her office are similar to what a client will receive at a local spa, her office uses different ingredients — ingredients that she says are only available to doctors.
"We can penetrate deeper and use ingredients that are a lot stronger. We use completely different products," she said.
Products Pfeifer uses include Auriderm®, Ascorderm, Luzern, Tensage and PRESCRIBEDsolutions.
Pfeifer says that through skin care treatments with are done by Tracy Kociszewski, a licensed esthetician, severely damaged skin, acne and rosacea can be addressed.
In addition, because Pfeifer said she is a doctor, she can offer other services such as Botox injections, liposuction and tummy tucks.
Pfeifer says her office also provides corrective breast surgeries — which she says has kept her office busy despite the economy.
"I've been doing a lot of corrective procedures using a product called, the Gummy Bear," which is a FDA-approved round silicone breast implant, she said.
"It’s great for patents who had an augmentation that is now it is leaking."
Pfeifer's added that she is working on a new skin treatment product line that will be released in the next two to three months.
