Meet the Aesthetic MD of New York! By Laura Anne Pelliccio Dr. Ronit Adler understands that looking and feeling your best is critical to overall self-esteem and total body wellness. Her practice headquarters, Aesthetic MD of New York, is primarily located in Babylon, New York, but additionally offers services in SpaUnique, a thriving medi-spa in Southampton. With an extensive menu of invasive medical procedures available, Dr. Adler is able to accommodate her services to new and existing patients across all of Long Island. Dr. Adler offers a variety of trending specialty treatments. “I love being able to apply my artistic touch,” said Dr. Adler in regards to our conversation on facial fillers and what distinguishes her from other specialists. “One side of the face is different than the other so it is more of an art than it is a science when injecting my patients for cosmetic purposes.” Renowned for her aesthetic eye, having a unique sense of style and energetic personality, my visit to Dr. Adler’s office was a fun highlight to my day. 30 Minutes of Youth! Dr. Adler uses a wide variety of facial fillers, using liquid facelift techniques, to reverse signs of aging. She has the ability to perform a temporary, reversible technique for apprehensive or first time patients allowing them to experience firsthand the effects that facial fillers will have on them. For those interested in exploring this injectable work with Dr. Adler, you can now do a trial with her. The Holistic Butt Lift! With a large range of specialty treatments offered, Dr. Adler is also the founding physician for the Holistic Butt Lift. “This non-surgical medical procedure is designed to achieve a more lifted, fuller looking bottom,” said the doctor. “It consists of vitamins and other holistic substances that help tighten skin and melt fat.” It is no wonder why this office is as busy as Grand Central Station.

Watch FAT melt away! Is your New Years resolution still about a stricter diet and exercise? Well everyone is talking about Meso/Lipotherapy and I approached the doctor to explain the process. “It works! This is a non-surgical spot fat remover used as an alternative to liposuction and surgical procedures. This is typically performed under the eyes, chin, under the arms, love handles, hips and virtually anywhere that we want to reduce unwanted fat.” It’s just that simple. The excitement in Dr. Adler’s voice when explaining the effectiveness of this treatment makes me want to schedule my appointment. Now this is one quick way to follow through with a “getting in shape” resolution. To learn more about these procedures, locations and appointments please contact the Babylon office.

artment A Visit To The Makeup Dep ! For A Wish Come True Makeup Artist, Ali Perretz, at Macy’s performing a beautiful MAC makeover on a young girl who was honored a day-of-beauty by the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

By Laura Anne Pelliccio Retired police officer and passionate volunteer for the MakeA-Wish Foundation, Frank Basile, invited me to Macy’s in West Nyack, to be part of a wish come true for a young girl who has won her battle with a rare type of cancer. It was a rewarding experience to be among the family, friends, foundation volunteers and Macy’s employees watching the transformation to an even more beautiful 17-year-old girl. With this experience, I had the pleasure of meeting makeup artist, Ali Perretz who said, “I was truly honored and so excited that I was

given the opportunity to do this makeup application. She really loved her makeup which made me very happy.” Asked what her favorite part about being a makeup artist is, Perretz described, “I offer all kinds of makeup applications including every day looks, evening looks, bridal makeup, special effects makeup, eyelash applications, makeup lessons and for media.” Perretz also stated in regards to a question on makeup trends, “Red is in! There is absolutely a perfect red lip for everyone, you just have to own it!”

Q & A With Miss Westchester 2014 important that my style reflects the woman that I am – sophisticated, classy, yet edgy and chic. I have been fortunate to team up with two of Westchester’s renowned designers, Jesus and Antonio Estrada. They keep me fashionable in their custom, couture designs for all my appearances.

Name: Mayra Avila Where do you live? Yonkers, NY Age: 26

Who makes your dresses? A s M i s s We s t c h e s t e r, i t i s

Mayra, what made you decide to enter the beauty pageant industry? For me, it was an opportunity to project myself and let people get to know who I am. Born in Ecuador and raised in America, this industry helped me grow as an individual and gain greater confidence being in front of big audiences. Over time, the pageant industry opened up different avenues to be involved in public relations and community affairs. It must feel special to shine and be embraced by so

many people, tell us what we don’t know about what is expected of being the 2014 Miss Westchester: It’s humbling to receive special recognition from many people throughout this experience of holding the title as “Miss Westchester.” However, it is more than just a title, it is a title that comes with many obligations and responsibilities to fulfill. What I feel that people do not know is that you can hold a title like this and still hold a career. Although it is hard work, it is not impossible. I have learned with this experience to manage my time and plan more effectively. What type of profession do you work in? I am currently a full time math teacher in a public high school in Westchester County. What was your final Question and Answer before being crowned? The question was, “What do you see yourself doing in five years from now?” My response was, “In five years, I have already achieved my doctorate degree in educational leadership, and have become an

administrator in Westchester County, assisting students to recognize the value of their education and the importance of their future. To add to this, I also see myself being an ongoing statewide motivator, and hopefully an inspiration to others.”

Do you have any special news to share? Yes, I do! Last year Mayor Mike Spano from the City of Yonkers, proclaimed August 29, 2013 to be Mayra Avila Day!
