Sobel isn't just synonymous with flawless skin, he's also utterly fabulous and a true pleasure. I absolutely ADORE his PA, Christine, who I've come to know through regular maintenance visits-- gorgeous, brilliant, and kicks my skin's ass! AND His office staff complete me. A LOVELY bunch, indeed!

I have been going to Dr. Howard Sobels office for facials for a few years and have just started to get Botox injections since I am now in my mid-30s. All my friends say there is something different about me but they cannot put their finger on it. His work is very subtle.

botox

I had botox injected into my forehead and eyes for the first time last week and I cannot get over the dramatic change in my face. I look so relaxed that someone I hadn't seen in a long time thought I just came back from a two week vacation. What a great thing to do. I cannot believe I waited so long to try this

I had my cheeks injected with a filler called Restylane and it was great! I looked much younger and more relaxed. An easy way to look good without surgery.

i had the most amazingly thorough facial by an esthetician named antonia. nothing really fancy but a real cleaning of my pores and something called a vitalize peel. after about 4 days my skin was soft and glowing. can't wait until next month for another!

I forgot in my other review to mention that the facials at dr. sobel's are great because they know how to treat skin with blemishes and dark spots.

liposuction

I had liposuction of my hips and thighs last year and I couldn't be more satisfied. I went to the office at lunchtime and had it done while I was awake. I left 4 hours later without my big thighs. It took 8 weeks for the swelling to fully go away but I can now wear skinny jeans instead of full ones. the staff couldn't be more caring.
