Often, to get where you're going, you need a road map. The knowledgeable staffers at Body Slim Laser Center aim to provide each of their patrons with such a map, which takes the form of a five-step program that pairs laser treatments with detoxification, consultations, whole-body vibration exercises, and nutrition and meal planning. An advanced body scanner gives practitioners nine-point information packets to assist in the weight-loss quest, detailing body-fat percentage, hydration levels, daily caloric intake, and the zodiac sign of each fat cell.
Vein Associates' master vein vanisher Dr. Robert Reese is a board-certified vascular surgeon. His skilled staff of capillary experts is on hand to help rid lovely legs of unsightly skin spindles. Visits begin with a professional consultation, during which a highly-trained staff member examines the area and recommends the number and type of treatments needed to fully alleviate symptoms, while also answering questions and taking note of acquired spidey-sense superpowers. Unlike some treatments that drive away spider veins by unleashing hordes of larger, hungrier spiders into the bloodstream, Vein Associates uses state-of-the-art sclerotherapy, a safe treatment involving the injection of a sclerosing solution directly into vessels to shrink veins and re-route blood flow to healthier areas. Although the initial reaction may cause slight cramping and discomfort for a few minutes, the solution will eventually transform the vein into scar tissue, which will then fade away over time.
Licensed phlebologist Kamran Afzal oversees a trained staff that snoops and snuffs out rogue veins by means of either injection or laser treatment. During a 30-minute cosmetic sclerotherapy session, an ultrasound locates defective ducts and an injection (a maximum of 10cc of medicine) sends them to their doom, closing varicose veins to ease discomfort in the legs. During an EVLT treatment, a high-powered laser heats cursive veins from the inside, smoothing and shrinking them into a mild sans serif font. Both treatments eschew more invasive techniques and send patients home with no downtime. Although this deal is valid for a single session on one leg, a second Groupon may be purchased for an additional treatment on the same or one of the patient's other legs.
Dr. Stachowicz has board certification in plastic surgery and 16 years of experience. He is trained in general surgery at U of Minnesota, and completed his plastic surgery fellowship in Indianapolis and is licensed in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Patients don't have to weave their way through administrative red tape or vault over the reception desk in order to consult with him. Instead, Dr. Stachowicz's patients bypass the front office and talk directly to him, even calling him whenever they need to prior to surgery and during recovery.
Before beginning any surgery, he takes as much time as necessary to learn about the patient, explain their surgical options, and recommend a course of action. Afterward, he stays in contact with patients to make sure they're healing and their spirits are high.
Experience is the best teacher, as certified laser specialist Nick Settich knows well. As a technician at Renewal Laser Clinic, he's eradicated over a thousand tattoos under the supervision of medical director Dr. Aaron McCabe. Nick has a deep understanding of all of the factors that affect the removal process, including tattoo placement and the type of ink.
To help ensure customer satisfaction, new clients consult with staff to create a detailed plan for removal, which includes estimates of how long each session will take and how much it will cost. The clinic's lobby offers aesthetic comforts, too: artisanal light fixtures cast their glow on charcoal-gray and cream couches, while walls garner warmth from burnt-orange accents.
