In a house on tree-lined historic Union Street, board-certified vein specialist Dr. Fort eliminates unwanted spider and varicose veins by using an array of noninvasive techniques, such as traditional and foam sclerotherapy, laser therapy, and minimally invasive surgical solutions. Esthetic Laser Centre's medical esthetician, Amy Perka, focuses attention on faces, using different types of lasers to reduce hyperpigmentation and tone complexions, along with chemical peels and dermaplaning. The lasers are also used to banish unwanted hair.
Muscle-kneading duo Linda Mehleisen-Kelly and Bryan Bauer eradicate back-bound aches with nine massage and energy-balancing services, calling upon years of training from Albany's own Center for Natural Wellness. Swedish and deep-tissue massage work kinks out of tired physiques, and reiki employs dexterous hands to clear away energy blockages and detoxify the body. Hot stones and bamboo sticks gently unwind tension with pulsating warmth, loosening even the most tightly wound of muscles and thawing out backs frozen from giving snowmen piggyback rides.

At Hair Loss Control Clinic Albany, one of 140 Hair Loss Control Clinic locations in 28 countries, certified consultants offer noninvasive treatments for hair loss. The company's team of directors, a group of medical doctors and homeopathic experts, utilizes a multi-pronged approach combining scalp hygiene, laser therapy, and topical products.
Since 1987, the clinical team has been seeking out the latest FDA-approved products and research from the United States, Europe, and Canada. During laser-treatment programs they employ handheld, hooded-laser, or tri-panel units with up to 135 diodes for maximum coverage. The medical personnel also developed HLCC Scripts topical products with ingredients that inhibit dihydrotestosterone, the hormone that is often responsible for hair loss or mispronunciation of a hormone on live television. The crew also puts the laser technology to use in laser hairbrushes and other equipment.
