Mountcastle Vein Centers are four medical centers that all share one common goal: helping patients overcome troublesome vein conditions. In addition to the cosmetic benefits of erasing unsightly varicose and spider veins, the centers' technicians also treat the vein problems that can cause chronic pain, ankle swelling, and fitful, sleepless nights. To accomplish this, the teams utilize an assortment of technology and minimally invasive procedures. Ultrasound-guided endovenous laser therapy uses laser light energy to seal damaged veins and sclerotherapy injections effectively treat the smaller spider veins that are still visible to the naked eye.
Aesthetician Cindy Short of Esthetic Escapes channels more than 20 years of skincare experience into each rejuvenating facial treatment. During the Microderm Express session, the skincare professional uses special diamond-tipped tools to exfoliate tired skin, revealing the fresh layers that dwell below the surface. The express treatment works to reduce hyperpigmentation and to reduce fine lines, scars, and sun damage in just 35 minutes, leaving clients with the time they need to finally answer all their telegrams. A coat of calming cream soothes freshly exfoliated faces.
Featured on programs such as The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America, Aqualipo’s water-assisted fat-removal system sneaks under skin to steal away lipid collections from designated body geography. Licensed physicians Dr. Jeffrey Caruth and Dr. Mauricio Giraldo photograph, mark, and sketch abstract self-portraits on the client's problem area before applying local anesthetic and cutting a small incision to reach the fat layer. Pulsing water jets then flush out fatty tissue with a sterile fluid, evicting lipids without stressing surrounding muscles, nerves, or other tissues. Unlike traditional liposuction, Aqualipo treatments require no general anesthesia and typically last 30–45 minutes, leaving most patients ready for discharge 15 minutes after completion. Clients can expect faster results and less intense side effects—such as swelling, bruising, and uncontrollably transmitting ham-radio signals—than those caused by conventional liposuction procedures.
Dr. Joseph J. Castellano and the staff of aesthetic artisans at Castellano Cosmetic Surgery Center bestow patients with the gift of natural beauty through modern treatments, including FDA-approved Botox. During the 10-minute procedure, a certified skinsmith injects the serum into wrinkled areas with a tiny needle, slowing down wired facial muscles by blocking nerve impulses and confiscating their stash of Pixy Stix. The skin tonic may smooth out forehead furrows, crow's feet, and frown lines for up to six months, and results begin to appear on the visage within a few days. Nonsurgical in nature, the treatment results in no downtime, but patients should avoid lying flat or engaging in strenuous exercise, such as bench-pressing glazed donuts, for four hours.
Many aesthetic specialists boast ongoing training in the treatments they perform, but Dr. Anitha Reddy has the others beat—she's the one who trains them. The aesthetic and anti-aging physician shares her unique knowledge of injectable fillers with other professionals as a teacher and trainer for Perlane manufacturer Medicis Aesthetics, as well as through her post on the national advisory board for Merz Aesthetics, which makes Radiesse. This peerless approach to injectables isn't the only beauty tool in her arsenal, however. She also tackles sagging skin with Ultherapy, a treatment featured on The Rachael Ray Show that sends sound waves deep into the skin to tighten underlying tissues, much in the way rock 'n' roll tightens the frown muscles of 1950s principals. Dr. Reddy also assists clients in shaping figures with CoolSculpting, lipodissolve, and cellulite-reduction treatments, and helps all sizes evict unwelcome follicles with hair-battling lasers.
Led by a team of board-certified plastic surgeons, PREMIERE Center for Cosmetic Surgery helps clients to combat encroaching signs of aging and restore self-confidence with surgical and nonsurgical aesthetic treatments. Precise injections ease wrinkles or restore volume in the skin, making faces less crinkly and easier to lay flat on the Xerox machine. Complexions are further enhanced by services including peels, microdermabrasion, and medical-grade facials. Patients looking for more intensive transformations can consult with the surgeons, whose skilled hands perform lifts, tucks, and reconstructive procedures.
