The doctors at Tritt Aesthetic & Plastic Center—the beauty branch of Atlanta ENT's medical practice—help to enhance their patients' looks with an arsenal of skin treatments, hair-removal services, and cosmetic surgery. Noninvasive solutions such as microdermabrasion, facial fillers, and cellulite reduction work to minimize dermal imperfections such as wrinkles, redness, and reptilian scales, where as rhinoplasty imbues noses with aesthetic balance. Their waxing sessions leave skin smooth and bare for weeks on end, and laser hair removal yields even longer-lasting results.
Dr. Kendra A. Cole, a specialist in medical dermatology, and her partner, aesthetic physician Dr. Louis D. Cole, help patients enhance their outward appearance with state-of-the-art treatments. Less invasive body-contouring options include VelaShape, Thermage, and Ulthera ultrasound skin tightening, which can result in svelte figures that easily shimmy into packed elevators and tuck behind trees during hide-and-seek.
EOS Medical Spa's physicians partner with certified massage therapists and technicians to rejuvenate patients' faces and bodies. The staff specializes in services for women with darker or ethnic skin tones and administers custom facials and laser treatments to leave all complexions glowing. Techs harness laser light for skin resurfacing, wrinkle reduction, and hair removal, and the light can address spider veins and cellulite when asked politely. The spa’s massage therapists add a healing, human supplement to technology-focused services. Their expert hands can administer modalities ranging from Swedish and sports for soft-tissue injuries to reflexology for aching feet.
Spider veins are not only a reason to avoid wearing shorts—they can be a symptom of more sinister circulatory problems. That’s why Dr. Ian Katz, a board-certified physician specializing in phlebology and sclerotherapy, offers three types of vein treatments, all of which help prevent future circulatory problems and remedy the appearance of spider and varicose veins. The first option is surgical removal, which Dr. Katz performs so precisely that patients typically don't even need stitches. Then there's sclerotherapy, the injection of a fluid that causes the vein to collapse and be absorbed back into the body. But perhaps the most intriguing technique—and Dr. Katz's specialty—is the VNUS closure procedure. The heat that this treatment's radiofrequency catheter generates closes off spider and varicose veins, reducing their exterior appearance and rerouting the blood they carry to healthier veins. The recovery process is simple; after the outpatient procedure, patients return to their normal routines within one to two days, and they see results after as little as one treatment. Following any of these treatments, patients may need to wear compression stockings for a time, but fortunately they don't have to resort to extreme measures, such as eating an apple every day.
At USA Vein Clinics' locations across the country, cardiovascular doctors who specialize in circulation issues identify and treat vein problems. The symptoms they look for extend beyond varicose veins and spider veins to those with more serious implications, including swollen legs, say, or a feeling of heaviness in the lower body.?
Once they've reached a diagnosis, the physicians tackle the problem with an array of minimally invasive treatments. Sclerotherapy, for instance, works via injection, prompting visible veins to shut down, morph into harmless scar tissue, and slowly disappear. Folks can also opt for non-invasive, FDA-approved laser therapy, whose light targets and shrinks visible veins, just like a disco ball shrinks the chances of a club being fun.
