Metro Vein Clinic's Dr. Kamran Afzal makes unsightly veins vanish from the surfaces of legs during minimally invasive sclerotherapy sessions, enlisting injections rather than surgery. During an initial evaluation, Dr. Afzal briefly reviews the client's medical history before performing a physical and ultrasound to detect veins that have been stopped up by age, overexertion, or a wrinkle in the time-space continuum. A board-certified physician then employs a thin needle to infuse each defunct vein with a solution of chemicals that irritate the vein's lining and cause it to collapse. Eventually, the body reabsorbs the sunken squiggles so that they are no longer visible.
A quarter of the bones in the human skeleton reside in the feet, and the doctors at Midwest Podiatry Centers tend to all of them to improve overall wellness and help patients to get back to walking the average 7,000 steps per day. They treat injuries, nail problems, and skin infections as well as diabetic and geriatric conditions to make walking and moonwalking as painless as possible. The clinic's lasers target fungus and warts that may be hiding on nails or soles, as well as unwanted hair and unsightly spider veins.
North Metro Pediatrics charges fees on a sliding scale, which allows treatment for children experiencing homelessness and poverty but can leave the nurse-practitioner-run clinic without funding for proper instrumentation. With a lipid-profile tester and a test kit with lipid strips, nurses could measure the amount of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood of their young patients. High blood pressure and high cholesterol can cause a plaque buildup in arteries that can lead to life-threatening stokes or heart attacks without warning signs or symptoms. The lipid test strips will determine the amounts of good and bad cholesterol to assess the risk of heart disease and help educate families about nutrition, obesity, and chronic-disease prevention.
Northeast Laser Tattoo Removal is the joint project of a physician and a veteran tattoo artist. Medical director Thomas H. Barrows, MD, has extensive experience using and studying medical lasers. He's lectured on laser-skin interactions throughout the world, and has even helped design the machines. Laser technician Aleksandar Nedich complements the doctor's clinical expertise with 15 years of experience in the tattoo industry. He understands the way ink sits in the skin and can slide off sleeve tattoos as if they were oiled water wings.
Nedich designed the clinic's comfortable space, adorning it with Indonesian folk art and leather couches. He and Dr. Barrows welcome clients in for consultations, presenting information on costs, procedures, and aftercare in a clear and direct manner.
