NewBeauty Top Doctor Since 2019

Drs. Sapna Palep & Rita Linkner

73 Spring Street, Suite 303, New York, NY, 10012
A good aesthetic plan takes aging into account. You need to look good now, in a year, in five years and beyond.


Built on their shared passion for beautiful, healthy, glowing skin, the dermatologists at Spring Street Dermatology are most proud of the word-of-mouth referrals that have made them a success. “The thing that makes us most proud is, that from our opening in 2010 until now, we have grown our practice organically,” says founder and medical director Dr. Sapna Palep. “There is no greater compliment than the referral of friends and family.” Working as a team, Dr. Rita Linkner and Dr. Sapna Palep ensure that their patients have all of their aesthetic concerns addressed. “We take our cosmetic consultations very seriously,” says Dr. Linkner. “We aim to create a customizable yearlong treatment plan that can include anything from lasers and injectables to skin care.” Knowing a patient’s intentions early on helps them create a blueprint that leads to beautiful, healthy results that keep their patients glowing for years to come.

A Minute With

  1. What are your most requested procedures?

    Botox, fillers, acne scar treatment,
    and laser correction of brown
    spots or redness

  2. What new services are you excited to offer?

    Radio-frequency microneedling

  3. What is your ultimate skin-care advice?

    Use retinol—the goal should be
    to find one that can be used seven
    days a week, 365 days a year. This
    is where anti-acne hits anti-aging

  4. How do you manage patient expectations?

    We make sure people understand
    what each procedure does and that
    there is no magic way to fix every
    issue at once. We also ensure to
    explain that even injectables can
    have minor side effects. Setting
    realistic expectations means we
    can always over-deliver

  5. Why do you employ a less-is-more philosophy?

    For patients, less is
    always more. The trend
    right now for millennial
    clients is using a small
    amount of toxin and
    half syringes of filler.

  6. What is the biggest skin-care trend of the year?

    Pan-facial neurotoxin, in which
    we utilize toxin beyond the
    upper third of the face to prevent
    dynamic lines that lie on the
    lower two-thirds of the face

  7. What is your approach toward aesthetics?

    Our approach is to avoid anything
    cookie-cutter and focus on the
    most high-yield treatments that
    are personalized for every patient

  8. What sets your practice apart?

    We are all professional moms
    and can relate to our patients
    who are also experiencing the
    same things we are. We pride
    ourselves on keeping to an on-time
    schedule. Frequent, noninvasive,
    low-intensity procedures with
    little to no downtime that allow
    our clients to get back to their
    work and families are in demand,
    and that’s exactly what we deliver.
    Executing that strategy is what
    sets us apart

  9. What are you best known for?

    We are best known for helping
    people with acne and acne
    scarring achieve clear skin

  10. Three words that best describe us

    Honest, energetic, meticulous

  11. The most common medical myth we’ve heard

    The right skin cream
    can keep your skin
    looking young over
    sun protection
