Led by Dr. Paul Colon, the experts at American Foot & Leg Specialists and Atlanta Laser Nail Specialist tend to ankle and foot issues, from bunions to diabetes-related ailments. Their treatments are as wide-ranging as their patients' symptoms, too. The SteriShoe shoe sanitizer, for example, kills infection-causing microbes inside sneakers and Bugs Bunny slippers with ultraviolet light. Heel-pain treatments, meanwhile, alleviate discomfort with injections of platelet rich plasma.
Andrea Stephens Dunn, owner of Beautiful Image, has performed thousands of permanent makeup applications in her prolific career as a cosmetic artist. She is both a Certified Dermal Technologist and Fellow of the American Academy of Micropigmentation and she uses her talents to fill in sparse brows, pale lips, and paint-by-number eyelids with natural-looking hues.
Andrea is joined at her studio by licensed medical aesthetician Abby Hern, a champion of healthy, youthful skin and dermal education. After graduating with honors from the Georgia Career Institute in 2008, she has since broadened her knowledge of facials, waxing, chemical peels, and medical-grade skin care products while working at Beautiful Image. Her specialities include correcting hyperpigmention, acne, fine lines, and wrinkles. Karen Rinkiewicz, a licensed medical aesthetician and 2006 graduate from the Atlanta School of Aesthetics, works in tandem with the team while focusing on anti-aging procedures, including laser therapy and skin analysis.
Chronic pain medications can launch patients into a cycle of side effects and drugs to quell those side effects; Dr. Earl J. Snyder hopes to break this cycle. As medical director of Outcome Medical of Georgia, he relies less on traditional medications and more on metabolic therapies developed in his office. “We have experienced some very impressive outcomes with our protocol that addresses pain problems at the cellular level,” Dr. Snyder said in an article in The Citizen. After treatment with nutritional supplements and electronic nerve stimulation, patients have reported relief from lower-back and hip pain, fibromyalgia, and the weight of the world on their shoulders.
