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.
Ultima Medical & Aesthetics' trained physicians deliver medical-quality care with an eye for cosmetic beautification, treating patients with professional-grade technology including FDA-approved Botox treatments. Beauty-seekers begin their 30-minute treatment with an exam and consultation with a doctor to discuss the areas of concern. The doctor then administers small injections filled with a purified, protein-based solution into the crevices. The age-repelling substance shimmies below the epidermis and silently karate-chops nerves into a deep sleep for up to four months, preventing muscles from deepening furrows. Clients can choose to treat vertical "eleven" lines hanging between brows (one area), the full forehead (three areas), or smooth crow's-feet on both eyes (one area each) or wiggle-lines on both ears. The injection procedure requires no downtime, and guests can immediately resume daily activities, though full results may take a couple weeks to fully appear.
In Greek mythology, Argos was a hero and a giant who was said to possess nearly 100 ever-watchful eyes. Though they couldn't possibly help clients see that well, optical surgeons Dr. Elena Mier Trotter, MD and Dr. Selvin Gnannakkan, O.D. want to try. As the resident physicians at Argos Vision and Eye Care Center, they use state-of-the-art technology to diagnose and treat ocular diseases ranging from the common to the complex.
In addition to preventative care, they also perform routine exams to check visual acuity and weed out which patients are actually under the control of tiny robots living behind their eyes. These exams can lead to custom fittings for soft or rigid contact lenses as well as glasses lenses. In the case of the latter, patients may be turned over to optician Alex Finkelshteyn, who will fit them for designer frames by brands such as Gucci, Ray-Ban, and Persol.

In a bright, spacious spa, Dr. David Moose, Dr. Suketu Patel, and aesthetician Gaynor coax clients' natural beauty to the surface. Some opt for surgery, as the center administers an array of oral and cosmetic procedures.
