At Dr. Clayman’s Plastic Surgery Center and Miracle Spa, experienced muscle kneaders and aestheticians soothe bodies with beautifying and relaxing services. During the hot-stone massage, therapists combine the placement of heated rocks on strategic pressure points with a flutter of kneading strokes to relax away the stresses of days spent working and nights spent trying to hitchhike and carrying a scythe.
Dr. Geoffrey Risley, the Jacksonville Vein Center’s medical director and board-certified vascular surgeon, and his staff specialize in safe and effective beauty procedures. During sclerotherapy sessions, a solution is injected into the inner lining of spider veins, debilitating their blood-schlepping capabilities and commanding permanent closure. Each arachno-battle lasts approximately 15 minutes and, despite intense needle-web projectile exchanges, patients feel only slight discomfort throughout the fray. Resilient spider veins fatigue most efficiently over treatments scheduled four to six weeks apart and after three to four sclerotherapeutic downpours, 70%−80% of them give up and exile themselves to the nearest desolate desert.
For more than 20 years, Dr. Brett Hirsch has studied advanced treatments to restore lush heads of hair to men and women. Among the most advanced treatments he performs, NeoGraft hair-transplant therapy reduces the recovery time and scarring of traditional hair therapies. A completely noninvasive option, low-level laser therapy attempts to bolster the growth of thicker, more robust hairs by promoting blood flow to the scalp. More dramatically, Sensigrafts, Virtuesse, and Reallusions hair-restoration treatments outfit sparse scalps with realistic locks available in many colors, textures, and rainbow-fro styles.
Under the tutelage of board-certified vascular/interventional specialist Dr. James St. George, the skincare specialists at St Johns Vein Center employ the latest in medical technology to treat vein conditions and improve their cosmetic appearance. An initial consultation will set the stage for your treatment, assessing your medical history and providing information about the procedure. During your treatment, meandering vessels will be injected with an advanced sclerosing agent designed to eliminate unsightly circulatory spots with minimal bruising. After your visit, snap-up athletic pants will make a comeback in your wardrobe, as newly confident gams scramble to quickly free themselves from their synthetic confines.
Growing up in Poland, aesthetician Mariusz "Michael" Zaworski was surrounded by natural remedies and fresh foods, which he credits for his dedicated approach to beauty treatments that eschew surgery. After receiving an introduction to essential oils by his acupuncture-physician sister and witnessing the oftentimes negative and costly side effects of plastic surgery, Zaworski headed off to aesthetician's school to turn his interests into a full-fledged career. He now wields his favorite beauty find, the microcurrent machine, during age-defying facial appointments, zapping fine lines, increasing collagen production, and gently cajoling pores into shaping up. Always learning new techniques, Zaworski shares his knowledge with his clients while attending to their inimitable skincare needs and reassuring them that fairies are not dusting their faces with wrinkling dust while they sleep.
The signs of weight gain, aging, and heart disease tend to develop gradually, but board-certified internist Dr. James DeStephens and his staff stop them with quickness. Among their many services, they offer VelaShape cellulite-reduction treatments, Juvederm fillers, and a weight-loss program that gets the most out of workouts with a steady dose of vitamin B12 shots and nutritional counseling. They even offer enhanced external-counterpulsation therapy, a technique designed to help boost the flow of blood and stave off cardiovascular maladies without surgery. The therapy works by strapping inflatable cuffs around the patient’s legs and then inflating and deflating the cuffs to increase the flow of blood to the heart more effectively than a visit from three ghosts on Christmas Eve.
With more than 20 years of cosmetic surgery experience, Dr. Richard Sadove leads his clinic in the fight against the visible effects of time on the human body. After a consultation, spider veins are treated through a process known as sclerotherapy, in which a sclerosing solution is injected into the affected area that is intended to cause unsightly spider veins to collapse. Each session typically lasts about 30 minutes.
