Vein Center of Charlotte's Dr. James Altizer lays claim to a stout resume of medical accomplishments, with decades of professional medical experience, service in the first Gulf War as a naval medical officer, and the successful completion of more than 1,200 endovenous catheter treatments for varicose veins. As a registered vascular technologist, the doctor employs a sophisticated arsenal of equipment and procedures to diagnose and treat patients. Foam sclerotherapy treatments dissipate small spider veins from the inside, and ultrasound techniques lay out a hyper-accurate map of deeper veins and gold deposits. In addition to removing unsightly hyperpigmentation from blood vessels, Vein Center of Charlotte applies its high-tech philosophy to a wide range of aesthetic procedures including skin-smoothing laser hair removal.
Board-certified surgeon Dr. Bruce Marko has a light touch for body sculpting and facial rejuvenation at Enhanced Images Medical, eschewing the "no pain, no gain" beauty philosophy. Dedicated to minimally invasive procedures, he has continually sought out new, gentle technology since he completed his surgical residency at the Orlando Regional Medical Center and saw the wrinkles Linda Hamilton developed while screaming in The Terminator. His specialty in microscopic hair transplantation represents both his technical precision—he painstakingly duplicates the original growth pattern with new follicles—and his interest in creating a natural look with small adjustments. He also takes his time with patients, who develop a safe, effective route toward their ideal look during free 20-minute conferences.
Although Dr. Marko can lift slack cheeks with a few deft incisions, he maintains a collection of five cosmetic injections to smooth facial creases with little more than a pinprick. Erchonia and Cynosure lasers help patients to sidestep weight-loss surgery and skin-rejuvenation techniques that abrade cheeks through exposure to Fran Drescher's laugh, and the lasers can also rout toenail fungus and unwanted hair.
When it comes to hair, Dr. Mark D. Baxa and his staff at Professional Image & Laser Care can give and also take away. Their services include everything from transplant therapy to laser hair-removal treatments, which are less painful than waxing and less boring than a tour of the velcro factory. But hair isn't the only focus. The staff also rejuvenates skin during spa services such as microdermabrasion, Botox injections, photofacials, and VeinGogh spider-vein treatments.
