More than 15,000 patients have passed through Parish Cosmetic Vein and Laser Center’s doors since it opened in 1995. Dr. Timothy Parish has been at the helm the entire time and, although he’s added several skills to his resumé since, he still takes the time to personally outline a treatment plan and perform ultrasounds for each patient with varicose veins. A registered vascular technician and registered physician in vascular interpretation, Dr. Parish eschews painful vein-stripping procedures for innovative methods including endovenous laser treatment, which uses laser fibers to damage the vein walls, eventually causing them to break down, pack up their belongings, and disappear. Beyond vanquishing problem veins, Dr. Parish and his team have also mastered several cosmetic procedures, including laser hair removal, chemical peels, and dermal fillers such as Botox and Juvéderm.
Softouch Permanent Makeup uses the finest beauty products to restore visages to prelapsarian levels of smoothness and radiance. In the microdermabrasion treatment, a stream of fine particles gently dislodges the outermost layer of tired, sulky skin, giving young, untested cells the opportunity to prove themselves and finally show their parents that being a face cell is just as important and respectable as being a neuron. The procedure is effective in reducing fine lines, blemishes, and sun damage. A repairing serum and smoothing mask are applied after the treatment to expedite the body's natural healing process, quickly eliminating the slight puffiness and soreness that accompany the treatment and helping forge skin with the uncanny smoothness and alluring glow of a phosphorescent baby shrimp.
