Piloted by board-certified physician Dr. Ehsan Hadjbian, the Vein Institute of Utah’s welcoming and experienced staff aims to relieve restless, painful, and cramping legs from the constraints of varicose and spider veins. During sclerotherapy treatments, Dr. Hadjbian will inject unsightly blood tunnels with medicine using a delicate needle. Over the course of 2–5 months, the vessel’s lining will dry out and break down, allowing the body to re-absorb it into the same black hole that sucks in stray thoughts and undigested Twizzlers. As blood is redirected to healthier veins, legs can experience improved circulation and a clearer skin canvas. For some spider veins, Dr. Hadjbian may use a Veinlite device to transilluminate the skin, helping locate superficial feeder veins and long-faded Charlotte's Web tattoos.
The technicians at The Body Sculpt Xpress dedicate themselves exclusively to ultrasound-cavitation body sculpting, a noninvasive technique already popular in Europe and Australia.

In 1911, when he opened Standard Optical, Henry Schubach could not have guessed that his successors would be providing LASIK treatments and contact lenses in 18 clinics. Each office fills with chatter as doctors check prescriptions and work to identify common optical issues, such as glaucoma or weeping when an onion dies. Light skips off ranks of designer frames from Coach, Maui Jim, Guess, Lacoste, and Dior, and transitional lenses darken as newly keen-eyed patrons mosey from the shop. The staff at Standard Optical has also performed more than 15,000 LASIK procedures, and offers a free consultation for those seeking to ditch frames.
Whether via chemical peels, photofacials, or even Botox injections, combating the signs of aging is the primary goal at Millcreek Laser Cosmetic Center.
