The radiologists at Inland Imaging's Varicose Vein Center rely on ultrasound technology to observe the flow of blood through the legs and to identify any problems that may be affecting this sanguine current. They drive away enlarged varicose veins with modern laser, radiofrequency, and silent treatments or through traditional phlebectomy-small incisions that access the veins and don't require stitches. The team also exterminates smaller spider veins with sclerotherapy injections, which block the flow of blood into the vein and encourage it to disappear.
Helmed by a friendly staff of medical professionals, Shape performs sophisticated cosmetic procedures designed to leave bodies beautiful and faces refinished. The IPL facial is a photorejuvenation treatment that uses pulses of intense light to safely eradicate skin problems such as sun spots, fine lines, broken capillaries, discoloration, rosacea, liver spots, and the cats who love them. The corrective treatment is non-invasive and requires no down time after the procedure, allowing freshened visages to immediately return to work at their office, home, home office, or underground bunker. Additional beautifying benefits include minimization of pores, birthmarks, freckles, and erythema, and while the number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient, immediate improvement usually appears after one session, with long lasting results occurring after subsequent visits.
Under the supervision of medical director Dr. Edwin Robins, Spokane Skin Solutions’ nurses and aestheticians use clinical-grade treatments and old-fashioned care to refine clients’ complexions. Facial peels help smooth skin, and injections of dermal fillers and Botox reverse the wrinkles caused by time and corduroy balaclavas. On the more technological side of the spectrum, the clinic’s advanced laser therapies reduce hair, promote collagen production, and diminish signs of aging and sun damage.
Guided by Dr. William Philip Werschler, whose aesthetic expertise earned him a spot as judge for Prevention magazine's 2010 Defy-Your-Age Beauty Awards, the staff at Werschler Aesthetics overhauls outer appearances with advanced med-spa treatments. The Clarisonic skin-cleansing system jump-starts each specialty facial with sonic frequencies that, though inaudible to human ears, work to remove deeply embedded oil and dirt, priming skin to absorb pharmaceutical-grade serums from brands such as iS Clinical and SkinMedica. Techs also wield lasers specialized to tackle different maladies, from spider veins to acne, and they work to smooth faces with injectables such as Botox.
Although the massage therapists at Renewing Therapies excel at tracking down stiffness with their bare hands, they find it's often easier just to ask clients where they're tense. They have a conversation with clients before retreating to the warm, comfortable treatment rooms, discussing the benefits and methods of the massage modalities and whether the client needs to relax, alleviate an ache, or merely look at the therapists' spring-loaded fingers. The communication doesn't stop during the massage, however, as guests are welcome to give feedback throughout the session.
Licensed massage therapist Galina Korovnik discovered a knack for the trade at age 18, when she got a job giving back rubs at a chiropractic clinic. Since then, she has pursued her talents for massage therapy and opened Belladona’s Massage, soothing clients and mollifying muscular aches with Swedish and deep-tissue treatments.
