Since 2005, Dr. Melanie Carreon has performed liposuction and since June 2007, more than 1,000 SmartLipo laser-liposuction treatments to contour and reshape abdomens, thighs, and chins. Accredited by the Accreditation Associations for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), Laser Cosmetic Solutions has met nationally recognized standards for health care and strives to keep patients as safe and comfortable as possible during the procedure. During the treatment, which is performed under local anesthesia, Dr. Carreon uses the SmartLipo MPX 46-watt system to target fat cells with a laser beam that can dissolve the cells on contact and keeps molecular-size thieves from stealing cellular diamonds. The dissolved cells then are quietly massaged from the body in the back of a suction security van or tidily expelled as waste. SmartLipo is a minimally invasive procedure that reshapes problem areas and may improve the appearance of slackening skin, but will not cure obesity or make dramatic alterations.
After seeing the sluggish affects that venous insufficiency had on his clients, board-certified general surgeon Dr. Mark Kneuper's curiosity about vein therapy grew. This interest eventually led him into the practice of vein therapy more than two decades ago. But as the times have changed, so have Dr. Kneuper’s methods, which is why his practice, Hill Country Vein Center, now offers technologically advanced vein treatments. Invasive services, such as vein stripping or tickling the vessels until they oblige, have been replaced with a noninvasive, radio-frequency-based Venefit treatment and gentle sclerotherapy injections. But before any treatment begins, Dr. Kneuper's registered vein technicians rely on advanced ultrasound machines to painlessly pinpoint troublesome vessels.
