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.
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.
At Advanced Cosmetic Skin Care Clinic and Advanced Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery, a staff of medical and aesthetic experts transform clients with a variety of cosmetic procedures. Dr. Mahjouri, a plastic surgeon with more than 25 years of experience, specializes in face lifts and tummy tucks but also provides medical direction of the skin care arm of the operation. Directed by Sussan Mahjouri, leads a group of licensed aestheticians who provide clients with innovative and safe treatments including peels, microdermabrasion, photo facials, and laser hair-reduction treatments.
Angie Byboth wields her extensive training and certifications to add permanent makeup to faces or erase the tattoos from an impulsive youth. With a tattoo gun and topical anesthetics, Angie fashions defined brows, lined lips, and dramatic eyes while clients rest comfortably listening to music or paying their last respects to their laid-off makeup. Each tattoo treatment comes with a four- to six-week touchup, filling in spots that didn’t fully take during the first bout of tattooing. Angie is also trained in Tattoo Vanish treatments, which can remove unwanted ink from past tattoos without the pain of laser treatments. She can also outfit brows and lashes with dyes to enhance the impact of Ernest Borgnine impressions, and optional lash perm treatments can add subtext to any glance without having to learn to wink in Morse code.
Inside the welcoming confines of Medical Aesthetics’ cheery red brick clinic, a team of specialists works to foster glowing skin from head to toe. The aestheticians customize facials to individual complexions, and administer FDA-approved Botox or Juvederm XR injections during private appointments or group parties. Laser hair removal treatments help free bodies of unwanted fuzz or clinging bunny slippers. And in keeping with their mission to provide rejuvenating care, the staff also schedules yoga classes before aesthetic treatments and throughout the week.
At Metro Life Medspa, a boutique med-spa, onsite doctors meet with clients for detailed consultations before tailoring beauty and skincare services to each individual. A board-certified physician banishes spider veins with a sclerosing agent injected into the vessels. These treatments cause the vein to collapse and, like the need for a mother-in-law’s approval, eventually fade away. Aestheticians working under the supervision of the medical director administer mesoestetic peels to slough off dead skin cells, and a physician further smoothes faces with Pixel skin resurfacing, which stimulates the growth of new skin cells.
