Board-certified surgeon and vascular specialist Dr. Syd Garfinkle has been practicing medicine in the Sacramento area for more than 35 years. Over three and a half decades, he has become an expert at wiping out unsightly veins using a variety of nonsurgical methods. During sclerotherapy treatments, Dr. Garfinkle uses injectable medications to collapse and dissappear spider veins while diverting blood back into healthier vessels. Alternatively, for vericose veins, he can guide a thin laser fiber into the veins to zap them shut during endovenous laser treatments (EVLT).

An instructor in more than 30 countries and the author of 20 book chapters and articles on dermatology, Dr. Timothy J. Rosio of AnewSKIN Dermatology stands out in a field of experts because he taught the experts. Today, his practice flourishes as he and his staff perform both medical and cosmetic procedures that promote his patients' overall wellbeing. Dr. Rosio primarily uses lasers to perform cosmetic treatments such as fractional resurfacing of the face or eyelid lifts. His medical programs focus on preventative and corrective dermatological care, with treatments such as laser removal of pre-cancer, skin cancer screenings, mole removal, and varicose vein treatments. With each session, the doctor strives to educate his patients as well, informing them about unchecked moles, acne, and the benefits of prolonged self-tickling.
Often employed by athletes recovering from workouts or injuries, cryotherapy uses subzero temperatures to reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and increase mobility. During each session, up to four guests spend 30 seconds inside an antechamber cooled to -66 degrees Fahrenheit, then 2.5 minutes in a main chamber at -166 degrees Fahrenheit. Though the skin's surface temperature can drop by more than 30 degrees, the treatment's short duration keeps guests' core temperatures at normal levels. Upon exiting the chamber, guests move into an exercise room where they stimulate reparative blood flow by performing a 10-minute cardio workout or visualizing a grocery-store shopper sneak 11 items into the 10-items-or-less line.
US Cryotherapy provides necessary safety gear to keep hands, ears, mouths, and noses warm, and recommends guests come dressed in gym shoes and swimsuits. First-timers must complete a brief physical-readiness questionnaire, which screens for health conditions that may cause complications during cryotherapy sessions or attempts to gain part-time work as an ice sculpture.
