Dr. Roger Bassin doesn't tell new patients why he should be their cosmetic surgeon. Instead, he puts them in contact with past patients to help them learn about the experience and life-changing results from people who have been through it themselves.
At Dr. Bassin's side is a supporting staff that performs aesthetic and cosmetic nonsurgical procedures such as Botox and vein removal. Meanwhile, the center's aesthetician Marsha Ostrander reenlivens faces with 15 years' experience performing facials, masks, waxing, and more, and a kissing booth manned by an electric eel.
Central Florida Laser Aesthetics' trained technicians wield lasers in the pursuit of beauty. Their laser work can remove spider veins and unwanted body hair, or diminish the appearance of acne scars, rosacea, age spots, and enlarged pores. The clinic also offers a few laser-free services, including microdermabrasion treatments and medical chemical peels.
MedSlim Laser?s trained technicians treat as many issues as possible by utilizing four different, noninvasive systems. To shave pounds from clients? torsos, techs brandish UltraSlim?s red-light therapy, which also helps to improve skin tone or sculpt targeted areas with UltraSlim Cold Light and Zerona scanning lasers. LipoRescue bends light waves to smooth the epidermis after surgical liposuction, whereas the noninvasive face-lift tightens facial areas without cables or surgery. To further ensure success of each treatment, every treatment is performed under physician supervision.
Although the board-certified optometrists and ophthalmologists at Eye Clinic and Laser Institute have been sharpening patients' vision for more than 30 years, their technology is up-to-the-minute. Their advanced techniques include NearVision CK, a procedure that reshapes the cornea with radiofrequency, and ReZoom intraocular lens implants to correct cataracts. LASIK laser eye surgery corrects a range of vision difficulties while requiring less recovery time than after using a Thighmaster.
But the real centerpiece of the office isn't technological. It's the individual care they give to each of their patients. Before performing any of their signature vision-enhancing services, they sit down with patients for a consultation and thorough exam to ensure their candidacy for any procedure, or to make further recommendations based on their findings.
Dr. Christopher Meyer deals in two worlds—the cosmetic and the medical—and he draws from both when treating problem veins. He used to become frustrated when he heard that people with varicose and spider veins were having difficulty finding treatment, as many caregivers deemed the problem a purely aesthetic one. So he took up work at Florida Vein Care Specialists, where he now administers treatments such as VenaCure EVLT, a laser-based procedure, to eradicate veins in the interest of his clients' health and confidence. The noninvasive treatment sends laser energy through a small fiber that heats and seals off the vein. Each session takes about 30 minutes, and requires no downtime for the patient, who can walk around immediately after the appointment.
Featured on programs such as The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America, Aqualipo’s water-assisted fat-removal system sneaks under skin to steal away lipid collections from designated body geography. Licensed physicians Dr. Jeffrey Caruth and Dr. Mauricio Giraldo photograph, mark, and sketch abstract self-portraits on the client's problem area before applying local anesthetic and cutting a small incision to reach the fat layer. Pulsing water jets then flush out fatty tissue with a sterile fluid, evicting lipids without stressing surrounding muscles, nerves, or other tissues. Unlike traditional liposuction, Aqualipo treatments require no general anesthesia and typically last 30–45 minutes, leaving most patients ready for discharge 15 minutes after completion. Clients can expect faster results and less intense side effects—such as swelling, bruising, and uncontrollably transmitting ham-radio signals—than those caused by conventional liposuction procedures.
