5 out of 5 stars Botox

Absolutely Brilliant Doctor for the Face and Natural Beauty - New York

Dr. Pearlman is simply the best. I would not go to anyone else who is not such a master artist of the face...I see so many people who've had fake looking procedures, but he makes it look so natural that nobody even notices and only have received compliments on how good and rested I look! Highly, highly, highly recommend if you are looking for young, fresh and natural beauty look.

Woman of a Certain Age Seeking to Look More Like Youthful Self. New York, NY

I just returned from Dr. Pearlman's again. This visit his team worked on a filler plan for me. Donna, Audrey and Heather work amazingly together to fashion a specific plan of action on what to use and where to inject. Heather is an amazing RN and knows exactly where to place the needle and how to smooth the skin out like an artist. I was given a bit of Botox for crow's feet and she used...

Almost 60 and Needed a Little Boost - New York, NY

Three weeks ago, I went to Dr. Steven Pearlman's office for Dysport. Heather made me feel very comfortable and confident that she knew what she was doing. While there, she noticed that about a half inch below both of my eyes, I had bags that were blueish. She asked if I had had juvderm under my eyes and in fact a couple of years ago I had. She called in Dr. Pearlman ( what a nice man!) and...

Looking Better - NYC

I got Perma Facial Implants in my upper and lower lips 4 days ago. I think the results will end up looking quite nice. I tend to bruise and swell easily, which was the case, although in the last two days this has improved immensely. Still, I expect lingering swelling for a few weeks. I am eager to see what they will look like in about 2 months. From previous experience with cosmetic...

Restoring a More Youthful Appearance - New York, NY

I had plastic surgery (first time in my life) when I turned 50 to rejuvenate my face...upper and lower eyelids, brow lift, full face lift. Loved the results after everything healed, but time marches on; the aging process continues. Today, at 54, I still look 1,000 times better than before the surgery, and want to maintain a more youthful appearance(and protect my investment!). This means...

Refreshed Look - New York, NY

I have held off on BOTOX for a long time. Three years ago I underwent facial rejuvenation...face lift, brow lift, upper & lower eyelid surgery. The results were great and I wanted to maintain them as best I can. During a consultation with my cosmetic surgeon, I voiced my concerns about becoming one of those frozen, BOTOX-faced women. He assured me that this wouldn't be the case. He...

Botox- 51 Year Old - New York, NY

Dr Pearlman is a master injector. The procedure itself is so quick, painless, and precise. I'm terrified of needles, but Audrey was quick to calm my nerves and make a silly time out of the otherwise anxious situation. The results are dramatic, and take years away from my face. I am now told I look happier, brighter, more awake, etc, by people who don't even know I had this done. Phenomenal, as...

5 out of 5 stars Halo Laser

Halo Laser Treatment with Donna Fay - New York, NY

Donna truly is the skin expert. She knows exactly what to do for my skin needs based on my concerns, and is very honest with giving me appropriate expectations. She is an artist. I was very nervous to have this particular procedure done due to pain, but I am so glad I trusted Donna. Discomfort was minimal, short-lived, and well worth it. The color and tone of my skin is noticeably more even,...

Perfect Botox - New York, NY

Really wonderful office! Great communication on procedure and what to expect during and after. I wanted to get rid of all forehead lines without looking frozen and this is what they did. Looking forward to going back to the office again. Could not be happier with my results! 1000% recommend Dr Pearlman for botox.

5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

Revision Rhinoplasty. New York, NY

Had a revision rhinoplasty with Dr. Pearlman and am extremely happy with the results. The doctor who performed my first rhinoplasty was another Park Ave. plastic surgeon and I am very happy that I decided to use Dr. Pearlman for my revision. He spent a lot of time with me both pre- and post- op to ensure that all of my concerns were addressed. He set reasonable and realistic expectations for...
