As a high profile actress/model I would never go to anyone accept Dr. Gerstman. She is top secret and in the 8 years since I have been seeing her she has never leaked my name to the press. I am forever grateful for her confidentiality.

I had sun damage on my face and I tried treating it with an expensive, well reviewed, brand name cream. I had a terrible reaction to it and it left my face covered with horrible rash like scars. I have been seeing Dr. Gertsman regularly

I have only had facials with Elsa and cannot comment as to Dr Gerstman. Elsa was wonderful, caring and professional.

Dr. Gerstman is a one-of-a-kind practitioner, and her work is incredible and natural. The staff is also very professional and warm. I have been a client since the practice opened and I have never considered going anywhere else.

Would like more pricing flexibility when a person only needs less than one half a syringe of say juvederm (lip filler). My case. Love the fact that you are conservative in your use of fillers so it's possible to grt a really natural look.

I usually have my dad do my botox. He is a plastic surgeon:) But it is not that convenient to see him.. I have visited a few other places in the city but either the botox didnt last very long or i got a bad bruise etc. \r
I saw Dr. Gerstman about three months ago. no bruises and the botox is just starting to wear off now. (3 months is typical). She even did this extra little injection right under my eyes for those tiny little lines and didnt charge me extra. Not only is Dr. G as good as my Dad, she might even be better Sorry dad xxoo

Dr. Gerstman is a very honest physician.
I visited last month with a Gilt coupon for Botox. She used numbing cream and was very gentle. I asked her if I needed to do the area around my eyes also. And she said no! I was ready to pay for an extra area. I can't believe how honest she was. She also offered a free touch up to make sure the Botox was perfect. And because it was perfect I didn't need any more. I asked her so many questions about her other procedures. There was a laser program she thought I could benefit from but did not pressure me at all and told to me to just read up on it.
I just really trust this doctor. She was so kind and calm. She is definitely my new doctor.

Many of my artist friends have been going to Dr. Gerstman for years and now I understand why. I didn't like the way my face was aging but I it was hard for me to describe what exactly I didn't like. Dr. G was so patient with me and she just ""got it"". And intuitively I trusted her. I look so much better now. Very ""refreshed"" without looking ""done"". She just has a great eye, a gentle touch, and an endearing personality.\r
thank you so much Dr. gerstman.

I purchased two vouchers on Doodle deals for Skin-Smoothing Microdermabrasion, retinol peel and clarisonic facial. Each voucher was $150 ($300 value). I asked desk girl NIsha how much time should I plan for the procedure? and was told that I should plan for 45 minutes appointment. I couldn't imagine how you can fit three treatments in 45 minutes. In reality, the whole thing took 30 minutes first time, and 20 minutes second time. Microdermabrasion 10 minutes, Clarisonic facial 5 min, extractions 5 min, Retinol peel 3 minutes, me undressing and dressing 5 min and talking to the aesthetician 2 min. While all procedures were absolutely useless and infective, the extractions on cold skin and closed pores was simply dangerous. I prayed for not geting a pimple, and I've got one really big one the very next day after the visit. I went the second time, and just asked for microdermabrasion and the peel, without any extractions. (I already spent money on vouchers anyway) This time the whole appointment took just under 20 minutes. Not sure, how good Dr. G is but it's very unethical to sell such ineffective and unprofessional treatments like the one they advertised on Doodle deals. Stay away from this place.

I have been a loyal client of Dr. Gerstman since 2004.\r
I decided to write a review now because I came across a few negative reviews about her spa they completely misrepresent her. She is an incredibly ethical physician which can be a rare find in such a competitive city. She always kept her spa small to maintain good customer relations and I adore both her aesthetician and office manager, who are both very skilled young ladies. As a fellow business owner I have learned alot from Dr. Gerstman on how to run a business that provides impeccable service. Come see for yourself and tell her Stephania sent you :)

I went to see Dr Gerstman because she was running a great Botox promotion. First she did Botox around my eyes (no bruises) than I told her how another doctor injected juvederm under my eyes 6 months ago and how miserable I have been because I can still see little bumps. She injected under my eye with an enzyme to dissolve the juvederm ( just enough to remove the bump) and didn't even charge me extra!! Two weeks later and I am so happy. She also included a free Botox touch up which I didn't even need. I am so happy. :)

I scheduled there lip enhancement. Natalia took care of me instead of the doctor (Natalia is a nurse).\r
I was left bruises like someone punched me in the face. Brutal and poor care. In addition, there was absolutely no result in the way my lips looked and they are in the exact same volume as they were before I came.\r
I wrote to the clinic and was offered to come again to fix the problem, this time by the doctor herself.\r
\r
After scheduling and taking days off from shootings, on my way to the appointment, half an hour before the time, I got a call that the doctor won;t be able to see me after all and she will call to re-schedule.\r
She never called.\r
I called after two weeks again, asking when will my appointment be scheduled. I was offered to see Natalia again, rather than the doctor.\r
I would rather pay full price again someplace else and not take their poor service approach and poor, so poor aesthetic talent. It's a NO for me.

I did not have a good experience with this establishment. I purchased a $150 coupon for, supposedly, a $300 service of a dermabrasion and peel. My first concern was when the aesthetician said this was an ""introductory service"" which is not how it was advertised. The treatment took 40 minutes in total and I was told that the ""peel"" would begin in a day or two and would last a few days - the result would be ""glowing"" skin. After no ""peel"" occurred after a few days, I tried calling the spa to speak with the aesthetician, who never called me back. The new receptionist did call back and said to wait another day. I followed up with an email to Dr. Gerstman explaining my dissatisfaction with the cost and lack of results. She responded by telling me that they did a ""unique"" peel and that I may not see any peeling on my face. I responded with another email letting her know I was given very different information from the aesthetician, which she ignored. I would not return to this spa nor would I recommend it to anyone. All I got was a pimple on my face, no peel, no glow.

Had a very unpleasant interaction with Dr Gerstman and her staff. Purchased a $99 coupon which I attempted to redeem just prior to expiration, and she was booked up and unable to provide service. Nevertheless she insisted on keeping my money. Her assistant indicated that many other coupon purchasers suffered the same fate. Mind you the coupon had NOT YET expired, but rather she didn't have the capacity to provide service prior to it's expiration. Although I probably shouldn't have waited so long to redeem the coupon, I fully expected that if she couldn't accommodate me prior to expiration that she would at least let me schedule a future date, or at a minimum issue a refund. I don't know how many other would-be patients she scammed in this way, but I'm betting it was quite a few (or at least enough that she didn't want to set a precedent, but wanted to keep her ill-gotten gains). I also found it loathsome that two emails I sent (and confirmed receipt of) prior to my coupon expiration got no response. Practitioners who are more focused on $$ than on service should probably be avoided.

I just wanted to thank the entire staff at Medical Aesthetics for being so kind to me. I came in to use a gilt city coupon. I mentioned to Elsa the aesthetician the problems I have been having with my awful acne. She asked Dr Gerstman to come in the room to talk with me. She spent. an hour with me teaching me all about acne and what I can do about it!! ( I think she was on her lunch break)
They made me feel so much better. I can't wait to see them for my next treatment. Thank you thank you

I visited Dr Gerstman recently at the request of my sister who has been going to her for years. I finally got up the courage to do Botox for my crows feet. Dr Gerstman and her staff are top notch. My eyes look amazing, no bruising, and it didn't even hurt. I wish I had gone sooner

I bought a voucher for this spa on bloomspot
I have to say I am shocked at how incredibly professional this place is. Beautiful decor, kind and comforting staff.
Wasn't thrilled to let a nurse inject me but it was the only day I could come in. Natalie was sooooo great. Explained everything in detail, calmed me down, and most importantly did an excellent job. She's actually better than some doctors I have gone to :)

Dr.Gerstman never disappoints . I always leave and love the way the fillers add youth to my face. She is gentle and really knows what she is doing. Dr. Gerstman is up on the latest safe trends. I have been coming to the office since it opened and I can't say enough about the laser facials,\r
all my sun spots are gone and with the use of sun screen my face is fantastic.\r

I recently went in for the microderm/IPL treatment with Elsa and it was amazing! Elsa was very personable and made me comfortable throughout the entire treatment. I noticed an improvement in my skin within a few days after the treatment. I've already scheduled my next session and can't hardly wait. Elsa is wonderful!

Dr. Gerstman is amazing, but when she was not available for a facial appointment, I had the pleasure of getting several photofacials with Elsa. She is very thorough with extractions and made me feel calm and relaxed during the treatment. My skin looked 10 years younger by the second day. Everyone commented on how great my skin looked. Clean, clear and smooth. Dr. Gerstman has a great team!

I came to Dr. Gerstman with acne that made me feel self conscious. With microderm abrasion and chemical peels and some laser treatment, my skin looks great!

I almost NEVER get any break outs anymore and that is a huge relief! Dr. Gerstman is extremely gentle in her approach and very easy to talk to about what your needs are. She never tries to push anything on you. I definitely feel much more self confident these days. I go regularly for a facial and just love how my skin looks after the treatment.

The Triniti laser transformed my skin!!!! No more adult cystic acne, sun spots, uneven tone. Why did I wait so long? Totally worth it.

Dr Gerstman is fantastic, a beautiful, knowlegeable individual. Verika is incredibly sweet. The whole spa imparts a gentle calm as soon as you walk in.

I can't wait to start the Velashape!!!

Dr. Gerstman provides a beautiful atmosphere at this gem of a medi-spa. She has an artistic eye to determine what exactly you need to look your best at that moment. The results last longer than I have experienced from other places and I couldn't be happier. You will not be disappointed, trust me, a very picky individual!!

I am Asian and basically have no eyebrows! My friend convinced me years ago to get permanent makeup (tatooing). what a disaster!!! The shape was off and it turned this horrible blueish color over the years. \r
I was watching the Tyra Banks show (not something I regularly do I swear!) and she was interviewing this French makeup artist named Verika Seddik in NYC. So, I figured I would check her out. I was desperate.\r
Best decision I have ever made. My eyebrows look amazing now!!!!. The color and the shape are perfect. This woman is a true artist. She uses these natural pigments so they will fade over time and I will need a touch up. But this is why they look so natural now. She calls it micropigmentation. If you are in need of new eyebrows you must call this woman!!!! I plan on doing upper liner next. I am so excited.

I had such a pleasant experience at this spa in regards to laser hair removal. i just finished a series of 6 with Elsa the spa's medical aesthetician. My hair is about 95% gone, no burns, fast response and Elsa made me feel so comfortable. There are so many laser hair removal factories in the city and so many horror stories. Medical aesthetics is a very private type of spa. They made me feel like I was very special.

I have been a loyal client of Dr. gerstman's for about 3 yrs now. i adore her. I have mostly been doing Botox and Retylane. But as time passed, I started noticing these tiny lines aroung my eyes and mouth and my cute little ""freckles"" were not so cute anymore.(I assume too many years in the sun!). Not bad enough that I needed a really aggressive treatment like the FRAXEL or something. But enough that i started obsessing! \r
So i signed up for Dr. G's Triniti program. Three lasers in three sessions and I am so happy! I did hurt a bit but it was really worth it. I was pink and blotchy after each session and my dark spots would get really dark. But with a little makeup i had no problem going to work the next day. For someone in their 30's or 40's who is starting to see signs up aging on their skin this program is the best. Yeah, Dr G!!

I am a 31 yr old woman still suffering with acne. And i have tried it all; Accutane, lasers, Retin a, Proactive, antibiotics etc. My friend told me I had to go see Dr. gerstman. I was totally sceptical because I have already seen NY's so called ""best"". But I also had nothing to lose. She was sweet and comapssionate as she listened to my skin drama. But more importantly she treated me with a laser that actually worked!!\r
It is called the ISOLAZ. It sucked out my pores, calmed down my acne, and it didn't hurt! I know i will have to come back for maintenance but i am totally fine with that. The treatments aren't torture, the staff is really nice, and the teatments actually work! Dare I say i may have really found NY's ""best""???

I am a 31 yr old woman still suffering with acne. And i have tried it all; Accutane, lasers, Retin a, Proactive, antibiotics etc. My friend told me I had to go see Dr. gerstman. I was totally sceptical because I have already seen NY's so called ""best"". But I also had nothing to lose. She was sweet and comapssionate as she listened to my skin drama. But more importantly she treated me with a laser that actually worked!!\r
It is called the ISOLAZ. It sucked out my pores, calmed down my acne, and it didn't hurt! I know i will have to come back for maintenance but i am totally fine with that. The treatments aren't torture, the staff is really nice, and the teatments actually work! Dare I say i may have really found NY's ""best""???

Pros: treatment that works

Cons: none

.

I just finished 6 sessions with the Velashape laser. It is awesome!!! So much better than the Velasmooth. Only 6 sessions once a week (instead of 16!! ) and so much more powerful. It even has this new ""contour"" attachment that gets the fat really hot so it actually shrinks. So, a paid a little extra and finally got rid of my love handles. I swear. God must be a woman!!!!

Dr. Gerstman has created an urban sanctuary that instantly puts you at ease. While some medical spas are designed with only women in mind, Medical Aesthetics is comfortable for men as well. I highly recommend Dr. Gerstman and her staff to everyone.

I LOVE Medical Aesthetics. Dr. Gerstman is an expert dermatologist who will work hard to achieve the results you want. She is compassionate and knowledgable and always takes time to work with her patients' needs. Even when I'm emailing her frantically on the weekends with questions, she takes time out to write thoughtful, clear, concise, and always useful answers and advice. Elsa is also really knowledgable and good at what she does. I had seen about 4-5 other dermatologists for acne before I came to Medical Aesthetics, and Dr. Gerstman was the first one to work aggressively enough to achieve the results I wanted. Her Acne program is focused on results and treats all causes of acne, not just one. I recommend visiting them to everyone!

I have been seeing Dr. Gerstman for acne for three years now. I went to her in desperate need to clear up my badly blemished face, back, and chest. As an African-American women, I felt like my blemishes and scarring would never go away no matter what I tried until Dr. Gerstman started me one of her great microdermabrasion/peel regimens. Within a year of treatments, medication, and topical products my face is 95% better. I can truly saw before meeting Dr. G and her warm, compassionate spirit, I was so insecure about my skin and now I am so much more confident in my skin than ever. I would recommend her spa for its sense of relaxation and tranquility, Dr. Gerstman's compassion, her expertise, and her love for her work. She truly is my miracle worker!

I have been a client of Dr. Gerstman's for around 3 years and I think I look better at age 45 now than I did when I was 35! Their microdermabrasion treatments have kept my skin clear and smooth and recently I have undergone Photofacial treatments that are erasing age/sun spots and improving my overall skin tone and texture. It's a freaking miracle. The general atmosphere in the spa is one of warmth and Leslie has a genuine quality of caring in addition to her medical and skin care expertise. If you've been nervous about getting that first Botox shot or just noticing that sag or bag and don't know what to do, give them a call!

Dr. Gerstman is a delight. She is very kind and professional, and instantly puts me at ease. What I really appreciate is her candor in discussing other treatments that I might benefit from. There were several products/services that I thought I might need, and Dr. G suggested that I wait. Her honesty was very refreshing. I've been to see her several times and see no reason to go elsewhere.

I have been to quite a few clinics in New York and have been rather dissappointed with one thing or another.\r
Since I have found Medical Aesthetics I am very happy with every treatment I decide to do with them and don't think I will ever leave them. I feel comfortable and taken care of by people who really care; are very skilled and professional. They sincerely are THE BEST !

I have been to dermatologists to treat my rosacea and none of the creams ever worked. I found Dr. Gerstman through online research and after her treatments (a package with one cost and no hidden fees) my skin has never looked better. \r
The treatment was well-explained during the consultation and I believe my visits will have long-term positive effects on my skin. I will definitely continue to use the recommended products as well. \r
I felt a real personal connection with Dr. Gerstman ~ she always gives individualized attention, takes her time with each patient (doesn't overbook), and I trust her. I also like that she offers botox and restalyne ~ as I age, I want to do so gracefully and would be nervous to go to someone I do not know/trust for these treatments. She is wonderful, very responsive, attentive and friendly. Highly recommended!

I have had IPL treatments before at a regular spa but it didn't really do much. I had the worst sun damage still so I figured i would try a medical spa. Wow!!!! I admit i looked a little scary right after the treatment. All of the spots got really dark. But then they turned into little scabs and fell off! It was very cool. and my skin looks so much better now\r
They ofer the treatments as a package that includes microdermabrasion and free products. So, no hidden prices which i really appreciated. Dr. gerstman even gave me some fish oil which has really helped with my eczema. Great place!

I have been a client of Medical Aesthetics since the begining. So, I obviously love the place. But one the most special things that I realized lately is how ""real"" the place is. Despite becoming one of the hottest spas in the city and having a celebrity following they are still the most humble people I know. Still high quality service, individual attention (no matter who you are!), and genuine honesty.\r
It's rare to find a ""hot"" place in the city without the attitude!! Keep up the good work Dr. G!!!

Since I've moved to New York I've tried a small handful of spas and clinics that provide treatments and care for the skin. Medical Aesthetics is the only one that I would recommend to friends or anyone. Having a great Esthetician is equally as important to me as having really good Dentist. Elsa is the one. While being extremely positive and reassuring during my treatment, Elsa took great care in explaining the procedures and products she used on me. Beyond the nonpretentious comforting service, the spa had extremely great energy. I am so happy to have found a one stop shop for all my skincare needs. The prices are average and thus reasonable, as you cannot get a powerpeel anywhere in the city for less than $100 and if you can, beware.
