Dr. Mike Towey uses five lasers to permeate the skin, erasing tattoo ink of all colors. A board-certified physician and Minnesota native, he strives to make these sessions as comfortable as possible by applying numbing creams to alleviate any pain or anxiety. Inside the shop, a space awash in vibrant Caribbean colors, Dr. Towey takes 7?9 sessions to send tattoos into the ether, with the body expelling the broken-up ink through natural processes.
Vein Associates' master vein vanisher Dr. Robert Reese is a board-certified vascular surgeon. His skilled staff of capillary experts is on hand to help rid lovely legs of unsightly skin spindles. Visits begin with a professional consultation, during which a highly-trained staff member examines the area and recommends the number and type of treatments needed to fully alleviate symptoms, while also answering questions and taking note of acquired spidey-sense superpowers. Unlike some treatments that drive away spider veins by unleashing hordes of larger, hungrier spiders into the bloodstream, Vein Associates uses state-of-the-art sclerotherapy, a safe treatment involving the injection of a sclerosing solution directly into vessels to shrink veins and re-route blood flow to healthier areas. Although the initial reaction may cause slight cramping and discomfort for a few minutes, the solution will eventually transform the vein into scar tissue, which will then fade away over time.
At Advanced Cosmetic Skin Care Clinic and Advanced Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery, a staff of medical and aesthetic experts transform clients with a variety of cosmetic procedures.

Directed by Sussan Mahjouri, leads a group of licensed aestheticians who provide clients with innovative and safe treatments including peels, microdermabrasion, photo facials, and laser hair-reduction treatments.
If practice makes perfect, David Whiting, MD, must be approaching that standard: he has performed more than 98,000 LASIK eye surgeries in his career. While racking up those impressive stats, the board-certified ophthalmologist has held medical-director positions at institutions including LasikPlus and Joffe MediCenter. At Whiting Clinic LASIK + Eye Care, he and his staff make use of both extensive experience and advanced technology to perform treatments including LASIK eye surgery, cataract procedures, and lens implants to treat severe nearsightedness or just allow for useful backup eyes. Patients get to experience the fun side as well as the medical side of the intricate equipment: during their visit, they'll interface with iPad systems and select their own music to listen to. The clinic itself was built to Dr. Whiting's own specifications, including eco-friendly construction methods, sweeping glass walls that light up with changing colors at night, and nature-inspired artwork that allows patients to revel in their renewed vision.
