After seeing the sluggish affects that venous insufficiency had on his clients, board-certified general surgeon Dr. Mark Kneuper's curiosity about vein therapy grew. This interest eventually led him into the practice of vein therapy more than two decades ago. But as the times have changed, so have Dr. Kneuper’s methods, which is why his practice, Hill Country Vein Center, now offers technologically advanced vein treatments. Invasive services, such as vein stripping or tickling the vessels until they oblige, have been replaced with a noninvasive, radio-frequency-based Venefit treatment and gentle sclerotherapy injections. But before any treatment begins, Dr. Kneuper's registered vein technicians rely on advanced ultrasound machines to painlessly pinpoint troublesome vessels.

Dr. Kim Ross likes to help people look and feel their best. By graduating college first in her class and garnering the single dermatology residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, she equipped herself with the skills to do just that. Over a more than 10-year career, Dr. Ross has enhanced the appearances and well-being of countless patients with a meticulous manner that has earned her invitations to present at conferences throughout the country. She and her team perform FDA-approved treatments that bolster images inside and out, including microdermabrasion and chemical peels to freshen skin, cosmetic injections to regain youthful appearances, and laser hair and spider-vein removal to prepare for dates with marble statues.
The staff at Vitalogy Skincare tends to skin's health and appearance across eight dermatology locations. Medical-dermatology services cover conditions such as acne, rosacea, and hair loss; cosmetic dermatology focuses on looks with Botox and Juvéderm injections, as well as laser removal of spider veins and hair. Lasers also resurface skin or guide complexions through photorejuvenation, which diminishes the appearance of sun damage to restore younger, more vibrant looking skin. Vitalogy also tackles skin cancer with Mohs surgery—in which founding doctor Eric Adelman, DO, is a fellowship-trained physician—a precise method that quashes the cancer by carefully removing tissue layer by layer.
At Dermatology Laser Center, Dr. Ana L. Rodriguez and her capable staff stay up-to-date on the latest technology and techniques to provide a variety of cosmetic and medical procedures. Each microdermabrasion treatment utilizes a Diamond Tome wand, made with actual diamond chips, to scrape and vacuum away outermost layers of skin, leaving behind less of the gritty, sandy debris caused by many microdermabrasion procedures and all sandbox-filled dinner jackets. Visages can emerge from the procedure with more evenly toned skin and fewer sunspots and blemishes.
