4 out of 5 stars Non-Surgical Neck Lift

57, F, 3D Vectoring Nonsurgical Neck Lift - New York

Dr. Novick is very amiable and efficient, and honest about the procedures and likely outcome. The whole process took about 20 minutes once the numbing injection took effect.

Way too expensive compared to several other specialists - New York, NY

Unfortunate experience. Wanted to charge me three times the amount of other qualified acne scar specialists for subscission with filler. Heartless in my opinion. I ended up going to Dr Julia Tsu and received excellent care and great results.

5 out of 5 stars Non Surgical Face Lift

Facial Masculinzation, Treat Sunken Face - New York, NY

This review is at the end of 2 step treatment to treat an "old looking" male face. Dr Novick is 1. professional 2, TALENTED 3, ethical 4. artistic, 5. approachable and available rapidly by any form of communication ( even if he is overseas!) 6. Flexible ( I was really late to my appointment) Basically I had multiple sites of fillers placed above eyes, upper and cheeks, jaw line, around...

5 out of 5 stars Acne Scars Treatment

Subcision/filler for acne scarring. Definitely worth a visit! - New York, NY

I drove 3 1/2 hours to see Dr. Novick for a very old acne scar that I was having very little success in changing the contour for after countless laser treatments. Dr. Novick was very descriptive about the procedure and enabled me to fully understand the ins and outs of subcision and the biostimulatory filler. After the procedure, I see a dramatic difference in the scar and evenness with the...

A Nonsurgical Neck Lift That Actually Works! - New York

Dr. Novick is a rare find. He has a strong artistic sensibility and is able to effectively communicate his thoughts, and to discuss the pros and cons of various approaches. He is extremely knowledgable, but very approachable and I felt that he listened attentively. I also love his "no waiting" policy.

5 out of 5 stars Voluma

Dr. N is a superstar

I have struggled with acne scars for years, and was fed up with failed laser treatments and so called doctors pushing a one size fits all approach. Dr. Novick treats each scar individually with subcision, filler, and TCA cross. He managed to place the filler in my cheeks perfectly. I have no lumps and my contour looks excellent. Most importantly, I left with the impression that he wanted me to...

Regular Microneedling with Subcision or Infini (Again)? Unsure How to Proceed. Advice?

I meet this doctor on November 4th and am greatly looking forward to hearing what he recommends for me!

5 out of 5 stars Acne Scars Treatment

Dr. Novick is amazing

It's taken me a while to write my review because I have so many wonderful things to say about Dr. Novick that I don't know where to start. If I was writing a review to myself before I'd called his office, I'd say, "this is the doctor you've been looking for". Most people with acne scars (like myself) can tell you that they've been interviewing doctors hopelessly for years. My hope for them...

2 out of 5 stars Microneedling

Subcision and Micro Needling for Chicken Pox Scars - New York, NY

Even though I did not notice improvement from the treatment with Dr. Novick and I think that he overcharged, he was nice and professional.

5 out of 5 stars Skin Rejuvenation

Non Surgical Face Rejuvation and Hands. - New York, NY

Pr Novick has excellent knowledge of the whole process and materials to use and mainly how to use them in order to sculpt your face like no other. He is just an artist who knows his job like no one else. Extremely professional and no pain in the process. Pr Novick takes precious time to explain all the details and answer all the many questions I had.

Radiowave Skin Tightening

קיים תרגום בעברית בתחתית העמוד Up to a relatively short time ago, skin laxity could only be treated by aggressive, invasive, surgical techniques, such as facelifting and necklifting. But going under the knife was costly and entailed the risks of general or systemic anesthesia and often required significant periods of recuperation and withdrawal from work and social activities. Moreover, it sometimes took weeks to months for swelling and redness to disappear...

Non-Surgical Hand Rejuvenation — The Winning Hand

Next to the face, your hands are the most continuously exposed area of the body. You can’t hide them in clothes or behind high collars, like a chest or a neck, and, if you are lucky enough that your face does not betray your age, your hands can give it away like the rings of a tree. According to an Allure magazine article, it was not that long ago that the hand was called the “last virgin body part” because so little was or could be done to rejuvenate it. Fortunately, all that has all...
