A former Miss Seattle, board-certified physician Dr. Amy Miller knows firsthand how important it is to feel confident in your own skin. Having always possessed an interest in skincare and a desire to help others feel beautiful, she traded her pageant gown for a white lab coat and now spends much of her time training other physicians in the use of medical lasers. At St. Louis Skin Solutions, Dr. Miller helms a small staff that includes a licensed aesthetician and supervises all skin treatments, including laser hair and tattoo removal, Botox, and cellulite reduction. Beyond cosmetic enhancement, staff use their skincare expertise to screen for skin cancer, and can also harness laser energy to remove spider veins that don’t respond to being slapped with a shoe.
Dr. Raffi Krikorian, the medical director at New Look Vein and Aesthetic Center, and his staff employ vascular know-how as they treat unsightly, unruly, and painful vessels in the legs. Techniques range from laser, radiofrequency, and chemical-injection treatment of large varicose veins to more dramatic ambulatory phlebectomies and cheese-baited vein traps. In addition to fighting the purple graffiti of unwanted veins, they also ward off the signs of aging with wrinkle-plumping injectables and chemical-peel facials. Vials of Latisse pump up eyelash volume to fortissimo and hand rejuvenation leaves paws smooth and supple, as if they'd been washing dishes in the Fountain of Youth.
Hair-removing lasers and dermal fillers populate the list of cosmetic services offered at Clayton Med Spa. The center's skilled technicians and aestheticians bid dullness adieu with diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands, skin-rejuvenating photofacials, and other treatments that target the face and body. Those hoping to correct sagging skin sans surgery can receive noninvasive skin-tightening treatments, which use infrared light, magnetic pulses, and bipolar radio frequencies to stimulate collagen production. Injectables such as Botox, Juv?derm, and Restylane help fill in fine lines caused by aging or falling asleep atop a subway grate.
Dr. Ricardo Rao, a board-certified specialist in both vascular and general surgery, helms the three-person team at Midwest Vein Center. Together, the vein experts provide affordable treatments––including sclerotherapy and venous laser ablation––to render their patients' bodies free of visible veins.
