For nearly thirty years, we have been providing the full spectrum of medical dermatology and dermatologic surgery services in Bay Ridge and the West Village. Our identity as The Skin Institute of New York reflects our expertise in all aspects of cutaneous medicine and emphasizes our commitment to being a comprehensive dermatologic center. As Medical Director, Dr. Brancaccio’s reputation in the medical community and his dedication to patient care remain the driving force of The Skin Institute’s philosophy.
At The Skin Institute of New York, we provide a wide range of dermatologic cosmetic procedures. We offer soft tissue augmentation with a variety of fillers such as Restylane®, Juvederm® and Radiesse®, as well as BOTOX®, which is effective at reducing expression lines to create a more youthful appearance. The Skin Institute of New York is also a comprehensive cutaneous laser center. We have acquired several new lasers to enable us to effectively treat facial redness and telangectasias, birthmarks, age and sun spots, photodamage, tattoos, scars, as well as unwanted facial and body hair. New laser technology now allows us to treat psoriasis safely and effectively.

Several studies have reported associations between dairy consumption and acne. A new case-control study used three 24-hour diet recall phone interviews to evaluate dietary intake, validated software for data collection, and dermatologist assessment of acne severity. An association was found between acne and higher consumption of low-fat or skim milk, comparing 120 teenagers with moderate facial acne and 105 teenagers without acne.
