About: What Sets Us Apart
Union Square Laser Dermatology is New York’s premier dermatology and skin rejuvenation center. We have assembled a “dream team” of exceptional physicians and staff, providing outstanding medical care with professionalism and full attention to patient comfort. Our physicians have been trained at the top medical schools and are widely recognized as being among the best dermatologists in the world. Here are some more details about the things that set us apart:
All Procedures Performed by Top Dermatologists. In some dermatology and cosmetic surgery practices physician assistants, nurses, or even medical assistants and aestheticians, operate lasers and other energy devices to administer patient treatments. While this is legal in New York, we cannot condone this practice.
Even the best lasers and energy devices are just tools. The results and the risk of complications depend on the skill and training of the person operating them. The best results are achieved when the appropriate type and parameters of treatment are selected for each patient and adjusted as necessary throughout the procedure, and this requires the knowledge of the physiology of the skin and the functioning of the devices that comes from specialized medical training in laser devices. Also while complications are rare with today’s devices, they are always a possibility, and an experienced physician is best qualified to recognize and address any adverse effects.
For the safety of our patients and the best results, at Union Square Laser Dermatology all medical procedures are performed personally by Dr. Anne Chapas, Dr. Jennifer MacGregor, Dr. Jennifer Chwalek and Dr. Robyn Gmyrek, widely recognized as four of the leading dermatologists in the world—not by a nurse, aesthetician, or other “physician extender.” Dr. Chapas, Dr. MacGregor, Dr. Chwalek and Dr. Gmyrek have several years of experience with the devices they use, often having consulted in their development or participated in the clinical trials that led to FDA approval. Vascular procedures are performed by Dr. Audrey Rosinberg, a board-certified vascular surgeon.
Our physicians have earned membership at Alpha Omega Alpha, the national honor medical society, by graduating at the top of their medical school classes.
Exceptional staff. Our medical staff consists of fully certified nurses trained in dermatology, with extensive knowledge about the procedures they assist in. Each is assigned to a single patient at a time to ensure that all patient questions and concerns are fully addressed.
The latest lasers and treatment technologies. All lasers and devices are not equal, and as big believers in evidence-based medicine, we continuously evaluate new devices and treatment protocols to establish what works. Dr. Chapas, Dr. MacGregor, Dr. Chwalek and Dr. Gmyrek are researchers with numerous peer-reviewed publications, and active contributors to the development of new treatments and technologies. Our well-appointed treatment rooms are equipped with 30 state-of-the-art lasers and energy devices. We own all our devices and we do not share them with other practices because lasers have sensitive optics and the ones that travel from practice to practice can easily fall out of calibration. Our on-site lab supports specialized procedures such as purification and injection of growth factors. We have the expertise, training and technology to design and deliver the best treatments for our patients.
A relaxed, stylish environment. We are located in a landmark building in the heart of Union Square. Our full-floor facility was designed by the internationally acclaimed architectural firm Studio a+i in a stylish, comfortable loft-like space with treetop views of Union Square Park and Italian furniture in a partnership with Cassina/Cappellini.
We are committed to the best available medical care for our patients, and we have invested in the resources necessary to achieve that.
