During his years at Vein Clinic of Las Vegas, American College of Phlebology member Dr. Bashy has successfully banished more than 50,000 spider veins and other vascular specters with sclerotherapy injections. Following an initial consultation to determine each patient's trouble spots and penchant for argyle stockings, the doctor slips slender needles packed with non-saline Asclera solution into unwanted veins, gradually erasing epidermal etchings and rerouting blood cells onto more hidden highways. Patients can de-spider two body areas in one appointment or pummel a single extremity with injections at three-week intervals. Unlike traditional saline injections, Asclera injections are relatively painless result in no downtime, speeding visitors off to sleeker cancan tryouts within 45 minutes.

Serenity Tattoo Removal houses a team of experienced tattoo undoers that wields the power of a YAG laser to clear away unwanted ink from all skin types. During each session of tattoo analysis and removal, skin sultans will consult with the client before clearing black and red ink from an area of up to 2"x4", great for erasing small roses and inconveniently placed checkerboards. Before beginning, Serenity’s aestheticians can employ the Zimmer skin chiller to cool the skin and reduce discomfort. Like the number of Christmases in a leap year, session length can vary, and most clients require 8–12 sessions for complete removal.
One thing is evident at Couture Dermatology and Plastic Surgery: board-certified dermatologist Dr. Candace Thornton Spann and her husband, plastic surgeon Dr. Marvin Spann, prefer the latest technologies.
