Dr. Chapas' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Chapas "Anne Chapas, M.D. is a Manhattan-based dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon who specializes in laser surgery, Mohs micrographic surgery for the treatment of skin cancers, and cosmetic procedures. She is internationally acclaimed for her laser and cosmetic treatments, and she strives to apply the latest scientific research to deliver the best possible care and results for each patient. ELLE magazine recognized Dr. Chapas in 2011 as one of 13 "beauty geniuses" for her state-of-the-art use of lasers and energy devices to resurface and tighten skin, and again in 2014 for her use of energy devices for body shaping tune-ups below the neck. Dr. Chapas is also acclaimed for her use of combinations of injectable treatments such as botox and fillers to achieve great results without a look that reveals that cosmetic work was done, and has frequently demonstrated such injectable treatments live on national TV. In the January 2013 issue, Good Housekeeping judged Dr. Chapas' "Ultimate Botox" best in a "wrinkle eraser" runoff by New York dermatologists. Dr. Chapas is the Founder and Medical Director of Union Square Laser Dermatology, a state-of-the-art center for medical and cosmetic skin treatments that implements her philosophy that for patient safety and the best results medical dermatologic procedures should be performed only by board certified dermatologists with specific training and experience in these procedures. Dr. Chapas is certified by the American Board of Dermatology and she is a Fellow of the American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery, the American Academy of Dermatology, the American College of Mohs Surgery and the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery. She is also a Clinical Instructor of Dermatology at the Mount Sinai Medical Center. Dr. Chapas graduated magna cum laude in Biochemistry from the University of Pennsylvania and earned an M.D. with honors from Harvard Medical School. She completed a residency in Dermatology and prestigious fellowships in Mohs surgery and in procedural, cosmetic and laser dermatology. A strong believer in evidence-based medicine, she is a regular presenter at the top research meetings in laser dermatology and has published more than 40 peer-reviewed articles and textbook chapters."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Chapas "Union Square Laser Dermatology is New York's premier dermatology and skin rejuvenation center, providing outstanding medical care with professionalism and full attention to patient comfort. Here are some of 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. 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."
