Board-certified surgeon Dr. David Berman sculpts bodies with 30–120 minutes of deftly wielded laser light, melting away fat in minimally invasive surgical procedures. The Cynosure SmartLipo TriPlex employs a laser fiber inserted under the skin to rupture fat cells while gently heating the dermis to tighten and stimulate collagen growth. The small size of the fiber minimizes swelling and bruising caused by more invasive procedures, and local anesthesia keeps treated areas from feeling pain or being vulnerable during posttreatment tickle fights.
Since graduating from Dhaka Medical College Hospital in 1972, board-certified doctor Shaukat Jahan has been honing her skills practicing medicine—with a focus on her specialty, gynecology. Certified and trained in both Britain and the U.S., Dr. Jahan is well-equipped to help her patients. In her well-appointed offices, she can assist with prenatal care and deliver newborns as safely as a stork equipped with a seatbelt and airbag. She also provides family-planning services and helms laser surgeries. For international patients’ convenience, Dr. Jahan can speak in Bengali, Hindi, Persian, Spanish, and Urdu during appointments.
Dr. Joanna Barnett and her associates at EyeDocDulles assess and correct eye issues from their Sterling offices. After a comprehensive vision examination, visual acuity and refraction tests discern eye health and ability. A Computer Vision Syndrome screening pinpoints symptoms, from dry eyes to headaches, which may be linked to extended computer gazing, enabling the doctor to prescribe a specific course of action for relief. Patrons shed their face-frames during a contact-lens fitting, and stroll out of the office toting prescriptions for both contacts and eyeglasses, as well as a month of Extended Premium Wear contacts that let faces finally show off their nose-bridge tattoos.
After seven years honing his skills in the general- and plastic-surgery divisions of Charity Hospital in New Orleans, Timothy Mountcastle, MD, returned to his native Virginia to devote himself full-time to body beautification as head of Mountcastle Plastic Surgery & Vein Institute. Mountcastle couples a keen eye for aesthetic detail with years of experience in specializations that include ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy, DIEP breast reconstruction, and insurance-covered mole and cyst removals. With a laser-like focus on patient satisfaction, the doctor commences aesthetic journeys with a consultation in which he patiently discusses the client’s wants and needs. Along with a small staff of registered nurses, the Institute boasts highly trained injectionists who send facial wrinkles running scared during Botox treatments supplemented by scary Richard Nixon masks.
Seasoned vascular surgeons Dr. Garth Rosenberg and Dr. Paul McNeill lead a knowledgeable staff in de-cluttering capillary-laced calves with contemporary sclerotherapy treatments at Capitol Vein and Laser Center. Experts destroy spider veins' superficial matrices of red, blue, and purple across legs by injecting slender microneedles under the skin to rapidly dispense a potent medication. The minimally painful sessions last 10–30 minutes depending on the number of areas treated and length of time needed for legs to achieve closure with their departing blemishes. Patients require zero downtime after the treatment and can promptly ditch the earplugs they used to keep legs' choruses of “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” from keeping them up at night. In out-of-office hours, Dr. Rosenberg and Dr. McNeill indulge an altruistic streak with a community scholarship fund and overseas pro bono medical care.
Center for Vein Restoration has recruited a staff of highly accredited surgeons and licensed medical staffers across 21 locations in Maryland, Washington, D.C., northern Virginia, and western Michigan, all focused on offering minimally invasive, same-day outpatient clinical solutions that target varicose veins and spider veins. Board-certified doctors on staff are trained to treat patients who suffer from leg pain and other symptoms of varicose veins. While spider veins—which are typically a cosmetic blight—may be treated with sclerotherapy, varicose veins often require a more involved treatment, such as laser ablation—an outpatient surgical procedure. Aiming to make treatments as minimally invasive as possible, the doctors on staff can also prescribe lifestyle changes for less serious cases, which may include following exercise and nutrition plans or wearing compression stockings.
