I see Dr Sciales for both acne and facial rejuvenation. His approach is scientific and thoughtful. He is a wealth of information, and makes each visit a personalized plan. You never feel like his application of Botox is "cookie-cutter" or heavy-handed. People never realize I have had it because he makes it just look like my younger face.

Dr. Sciales takes a conservative approach to non surgical facial rejuvenation. Prior to executing a treatment plan, he listens carefully to my views. He takes the time and talks about his plan each and every visit. More often than not, he does less, though I would like more! He has a light hand and a keen artistic ability to preserve youthful contours and features. The ulitmate look is rested, fresh and natural. Patients come from all over, especially NYC!

I called to get a price on Botox and Xeomin per unit. I was told no pricing was given over the phone - must come in for a free consultation. I explained I could not come in if the pricing was not in my ball park - again, no pricing over the phone.

Dr. Sciales is very personable, soft spoken and makes the patient feel very comfortable during examination. However, he explains everything he finds, fully and completely so you do not leave his office with questions concerning your visit.
