On the Upper East Side, Dr. Amy Lewis is changing lives one procedure at a time.
THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY is constantly evolving, but the desire for a magical upgrade remains the same. Whatever the process, the aspiration is for natural, glowing results with little, if any, downtime. Dr. Amy Lewis, a celebrated medical expert and consultant with her eponymous private practice Lewis Dermatology located on the Upper East Side has answers. While the Yale School of Medicine graduate specialized in Cosmetic and Laser Dermatology, her true passion lies in helping people accept themselves.
These days, that’s more important than ever. “With COVID and everything else that’s going on in the world, dermatology is one thing you can do to improve people’s quality of life,” she says. In what she refers to as “Zoom, gloom, and doom,” people are increasingly forced to view themselves while they interact with others, and they don’t always like what they see. Dr. Lewis offers a wide range of solutions that are highly effective in improving people’s sense of peace with themselves.
Among the various cosmetic and dermatology procedures her practice is known for, CoolPeel, conducted by the advanced Deka SmartXide Tetra CO2 Laser, is very popular. The laser has more scanning patterns than earlier versions, allowing for unparalleled precision when it comes to skin resurfacing. “I have been trained in it from the beginning and in all its evolutions,” explains Dr. Lewis. “It can help increase collagen, texture, and tighten the skin, it has no downtime, and it’s painless.” She also added that it can be used for various parts of the body. While face is important, Dr. Lewis reiterates, “I promote overall wellness. Your hands and chest have to match your face.”
