According to Vein Medic, an estimated one in four people suffer from some form of leg-vein disorder during their lives. These varicose and spider veins can be painful, and even if they aren't, they can make people feel uncomfortable with their appearance. So Vein Medic's physicians, including board-certified Dr. Michael Kassouf, who has been eradicating unwanted veins for more than 25 years, fight them with a variety of treatments.
Two of the most popular treatments include sclerotherapy and endovenus laser therapy. During sclerotherapy treatments, doctors inject the unwanted veins with an FDA-approved sclerosing solution, which causes the veins to collapse, die, and eventually fade from view. Endovenus laser treatments also collapse veins, though they require a laser fiber to be inserted into the vein. Both minimally invasive treatments can help patients feel more confident walking around in public in shorts, dresses, and figure-skating costumes in a few weeks.
Board-certified plastic surgeon, Edward S. Lee and his highly trained team of body buffers combine recent technological advances and a strong medical background to beautify bodies and revise visages. During the Zerona treatment series, five low-level lasers melt fat, jettisoning plump cells so that they can be safely eliminated by the lymphatic system. The 40-minute procedure is repeated about every other day for two weeks for maximum effectiveness and is designed to remove 2–6 inches from the treated area. The procedure requires no surgery or injections, has minimal down time, and—unlike the vice grip of a new father-in-law's suggestively sinister handshake—is virtually pain free. The Zerona treatment is ideal for the waist, hips, thighs, back, buttocks, or anywhere else with localized pockets of fat that have remained resistant to diet, exercise, and threats to take away their car privileges. Zerona is only available at the Englewood Cliffs location.
At Skin Solutions Staten Island, the main focus is, of course, skin, and a team of aestheticians works to clear it of the many epidermal issues that can plague it. Some techniques are more advanced, including an extensive array of laser services that treat anything from age spots and acne to spider veins and loss of elasticity. There are cellulite treatments, too, as well as Botox injections and permanent-makeup applications.
More traditional therapies include several types of facials, such as glycolic peels and deep-pore cleansing. Body treatments nourish the skin with seaweed wraps or honey-almond scrubs, and massage therapy relaxes muscles with Swedish, hot-stone, or reflexology sessions.

Dr. John Zarcone, a board-certified physician, lessens the aesthetic evidence of aging using FDA-approved Botox injections. After consulting with patients about their desired outcomes, the doctor will administer appropriate amounts of the wrinkle-ousting substance. The formula blocks nerve impulses and allows muscles to relax, rendering a brow as smooth as a freshly zambonied bowling lane. Results may take a few days to completely develop, and can last up to four months. The procedure, which can take as little as 10 minutes, may cause mild discomfort similar to snuggling with a pet porcupine.
