Medlab's teams of medical professionals quantify and assess important bodily systems at locations throughout a five-state Midwest region. Trained to work with patients of all ages, phlebotomists deftly retrieve blood with minimal discomfort, then process the samples to analyze vital statistics such as cholesterol, glucose levels, and sodium. Wait times that average 10 minutes free up precious time for patients.
Led by Dr. Innocent Ubunama, a general vascular surgeon, the staff at Midwest Vascular & Varicose Vein Center purges legs of visible veins using one of four treatment methods. Sclerotherapy treatments flood spider veins with chemical injections that collapse the blood vessel for absorption into the body, and EVLT introduces diode lasers through fiber-optic probes to close off veins and reduce their visibility. Alternatively, during a surgical microphlebectomy, doctors pluck more severe varicose veins from legs with a series of incisions. Patients unable to undergo these procedures can adopt lifestyle changes and wear specialized garments to prevent further damage to their venous system, a noninvasive option known to doctors as conservative therapy and to its close friends as "Bob."
They use their fingers, their palms, occasionally they may even throw in an elbow—the licensed massage therapists at Spring Meadows Clinical Massage happily toss their limbs in the ring for the sake of untying musculature knots and shooing away a day’s worth of stress. Yet massage may do much more than help clients ignore the stress of keeping all their stress balls in a row. According to a 2010 study, it can also heighten the body’s immune system, repress aggressive behavior, and, of course, reduce the stress hormone, cortisol. Stressed, sore, and sick clients can enjoy all of those benefits at Spring Meadows, where therapists will mend aches with fluid Swedish strokes, or deal purely with superficial angst with relaxation massages.
Dr. Khan and his team of licensed laser wielders safely and precisely punish overgrowth and skin damage with no-downtime cosmetic procedures. Customers looking to forfeit fur will feel relatively little pain as the treatment directly targets follicles on the upper lip, chin, neck, underarms, or bikini area, leaving pores and skin free to celebrate the purging of its pelt. An average treatment time of 5–45 minutes allows laser pulses to deseed unwanted foliage anywhere on the body, and postprocedure patients require no downtime, allowing them to return to their usual routines. It typically takes six laser sessions for complete banishment, so customers can purchase two Groupons for the full effect.
At Solutions Skincare & Laser Center, husband-and-wife team Craig and Rachelle Hanson fuse medical-grade services with a spa atmosphere to help their clients defeat the aging process. For more than 15 years, the med spa’s aestheticians have helped boost clients' confidence and local mirror sales with a repertoire of skincare services that includes microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and facials.
Dr. Balkany, a board-certified vascular surgeon specializing in the treatment of varicose veins, helms an experienced team in the vanquishing of unhealthy veins during minimally invasive, in-office sclerotherapy treatments. Skilled hands guide a small-gauge needle that injects a sclerosing agent into small varicose and spider veins. During each 15- to 20-minute session, the specialized solution aims to seal off veins, forcing them to dissolve back into the body. Patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure and can typically return to normal daily activities immediately afterward.
