Led by Dr. Innocent Ubunama, a general vascular surgeon, the staff at Midwest Vascular & Varicose Vein Center purges legs of visible veins using one of four treatment methods. Sclerotherapy treatments flood spider veins with chemical injections that collapse the blood vessel for absorption into the body. Varicose vein treatments involve radio frequency ablation and use thermal energy to shrink vein walls and seal them closed. Alternatively, during a surgical microphlebectomy, doctors pluck more severe varicose veins from legs with a series of incisions. Patients unable to undergo these procedures can adopt lifestyle changes and wear specialized garments to prevent further damage to their venous system, a noninvasive option.
Board-certified physician Dr. Wade L. Banker knows a thing or two about vascular and interventional procedures. He was an interventional radiologist at both Cleveland Clinic and MetroHealth and Chief of Vascular/Interventional at Mississippi Medical Center. At Luxe Laser Vein & Body Center, he and his highly-skilled and trained team use both their experience and the latest technology to beautify their clients in a state-of-the art atmosphere. They use the Cynosure Elite MPX laser to remove varicose veins and hair, the Smartlipo laser to evict fat cells, and the Revlite laser to erase embarrassing tattoos, such as a dragon breathing your social security number in flames. They also use traditional spa techniques, performing facials, microdermabrasions, and peels.
Dr. Louis Balkany specializes in vascular disorders, assessing and treating them at his practice, Byrne Road Vein Clinic. His sclerotherapy treatments take roughly 15 minutes and alleviate spider veins and small varicose veins. His incision-free laser ablation treatments, on the other hand, work their magic on larger varicose veins in roughly one hour.
Birmingham Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center's team, which is captained by board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Rifai, enhances anatomical aesthetics with noninvasive treatments and surgical procedures such as liposuction and facelifts. Microdermabrasion wands zip over sun-hardened skin and injectables such as Botox and Juvéderm work to firm up facial surfaces and fade fine lines. The med spa procedures address a range of concerns, from unwanted hair to achy muscles. Furthermore, consultations at the center are always complimentary.
The beauty experts at Advanced Esthetics draw from more than 50 years of combined experience to deliver a gamut of beautifying services. After a complimentary consultation to determine the best approach for issues such as rosacea, fine lines, or skin laxity, a licensed aesthetician may recommend a rejuvenating, saline-based JetPeel or a noninvasive radio-frequency treatment to enhance both collagen growth and the ability to tune out infomercials. Advanced Esthetics' master skin technicians can also reduce spider veins and lift unwanted hair, and a team of licensed massage therapists eases tension and stress with long, gliding Swedish strokes.
Dr. Kathleen Gilmore, a veteran in the world of skincare, was at one time the go-to source for Shape magazine's editors when they had questions about body contouring or cellulite treatments. Now, she focuses her expertise to treat clients at Procerus Skin Care. Her microdermabrasion sessions buff away fine lines or scarring, and her IPL photofacials fade discoloration caused by sun damage or falling asleep on an inky newspaper. Dr. Gilmore also improves patients' appearances with skin tightening, cellulite reduction, and laser hair-removal sessions.
