Reflecting its multi-disciplinary approach, MIMIT—Midwest Institute for Minimally Invasive Treatments—employs a team of board certified practitioners from diverse medical backgrounds. Four fellowship-trained interventional radiologists and two general surgeons helm the staff, which also includes three certified physician's assistants. Together, they approach healing with a focus on function, as well as aesthetics, and aim to empower their clients through treatment education. The team specializes in needle-aided sclerotherapy, endo-venous laser treatments, and radio frequency ablation treatments for venous disease, as well as pain-reduction kyphoplasty treatments for spinal compression. They also rely on a blend of non-invasive and surgical techniques to treat issues ranging from peripheral arterial disease to breast cancer.
The vein vanguards at Midwest Vein Center devote themselves exclusively to the treatment and eradication of spider and varicose veins. After scheduling an appointment, clients will undergo a pretreatment screening to ensure that sclerotherapy is the appropriate plan of anatomical action. Dr. Murray James Propes—a leading phlebologist who recently received the American College of Phlebology scholarship—will conduct the screening.
At Clear Vein Center, Dr. Yariv Cohen and his staff clear darkened veins from the skin with a trio of treatments that result in very little downtime. For sclerotherapy treatments, they inject an irritant into problem veins, which can cause them to fade in about three to six months. During phlebectomy treatments, they remove varicose veins through incisions tiny enough that no stitches are needed to close them. Laser treatments send light into veins via a thin fiber, which can cause the vein to seal shut.
Sono Bella Clinica's medically supervised staff deploys FDA-cleared VelaSmooth treatments that coalesce radio frequencies, infrared light, and gentle vacuuming to smooth puckered epidermises. Invisible waves and rays delve stealthily beneath the skin's surface, catalyzing metabolism within embedded fat cells to leave behind a smoothened façade. Cellulite colonies of the hips, abs, buttocks, arms, calves, neck, and bra line capitulate under the invisible auspices of VelaSmooth technologies. Most patients require six to eight weekly sessions lasting 45- to 60-minutes each to achieve ideally dimpleless skin, and results typically last six to eight weeks after the last session. Because of its non-invasive nature, VelaSmooth treatments incur no recovery time, so clients can immediately return to prior engagements such as a Rockette's body double.
Hidden within Buffalo Grove's corporate woods area, off Milwaukee Avenue, we are one of the areas best kept secrets. We are a full fledge Medical Spa that has multiple doctors on staff, including Dr. Lopez, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, overseeing and performing many of the other results-based procedures.
Dr. Amjad Safvi has spent more than 15 years in the medical field focusing on vascular issues, particularly varicose and spider veins. He now oversees Advanced Vein Treatment & Cosmetic Center, where he and his caring staff treat patients to complimentary consultations before administering laser, radio-frequency, and sclerotherapy vein treatments along with a host of other aesthetic treatments. The facility’s laser collection, the high-tech cherry on its med-spa sundae, allows the staff to showcase hair-removal, anti-aging, and facial-rejuvenation treatments that round out a crowded roster that includes SkinMedica chemical peels, Botox injections, and fillers that can last up to five years.
