Dr. Haideh Hirmand: An Ego Boost for the Eyes
Back to the Blog... | Post Feedback | Author Bio | Printer-Friendly

"The first signs of aging," warns Harvard-educated, board-certified Dr. Haideh Hirmand, "are around the eyes." Dr. Hirmand, who is a clinical assistant professor of surgery at Weill Medical College of Cornell University and on staff at New York-Presbyterian and Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Hospitals, says she wasn't happy about using a needle when working with patients seeking a filler for the tired-looking, hollowed-out or darkened circles under the eyes (otherwise known as tear troughs). So she set about creating a way to deliver a filler like Restylane in a more efficient and safe manner. What she developed was a tiny canula with a blunt tip that allows her a better delivery system for getting deeply into that delicate area -- without cutting, with less bruising, and with superior performance. What does this mean for you? A great non-surgical ego-booster for around $1,000 (and up) -- and a perfect gift to yourself that'll get rid of the "harried holiday hollows" that two frantic months of shopping, schlepping, and stress may have wrought! 105 E. 73rd St. btw.
