Dr. Marc Sanders is something of a pioneer in ophthalmology. One of the first to perform all-laser LASIK in the nation, he prides himself on staying at the forefront of medical advances in his field. This dedication and passion, earned him the Top Doctor award from an H-Texas Magazine survey nine times. With the help of his partners Dr. Aric Welton and Dr. Stephanie McMillen, Dr. Sanders continues using advancing technology to remedy his patients' vision as quickly and painlessly as possible.
The teams services center around preventative examinations to ensure the healthy functioning of the eye, pupil, and eye muscles. However, the team doesn't shy away from corrective procedures. As a laser vision center, the eye surgeons repair near or farsightedness and astigmatisms with blade-free LASIK treatments, and correct cataracts with stitch-free, ultrasonic procedures. Once vision is corrected, the doctors can remove surprise wrinkles with FDA-approved Botox injections, and there's also a boutique eyeglass shop onsite that outfits clients with chic frames.
Veteran vascular surgeon Dr. William P. Kalchoff has established vein clinics across the world—from San Antonio to São Paulo—in order to help patients eliminate spider and varicose veins. At the Vein Treatment Center of San Antonio, his staffers use not only traditional vein-removal techniques but also more advanced laser treatments to gently and effectively erase noticeable vessels. Small needles are gently injected into surface veins during sclerotherapy treatments, which leave no scarring and require no anesthesia. Knotted and twisted veins known as varicose veins can be treated with a phlebectomy, which removes the faulty section of the vessel, whereas endovenous laser sessions effectively destroy the veins by subjecting them to a visual interpretation of Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon.
Along with offering vein-removal treatments, the clinic provides advanced aesthetic services at its adjoining MedSpa de Abeja. Dermal fillers are injected into the face to temporarily remove fine lines and deeper-set wrinkles, whereas aestheticians rely on Cellex-C and Obagi products to brighten and even skin tone during facials.
While performing her residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, Dr. Ellen Turner built a strong foundation for treating dermatological conditions such as acne, rosacea, psoriasis, and skin cancer. She designed DermLaser Institute of Dallas to treat skin maladies ranging from eczema and melasma to scar treatment. She and her staff tone and brighten complexions with skin treatments as well as medical, cosmetic, and laser procedures. Outside of simple skin-brightening work, DermLaser Institute of Dallas also wields Yag and Fraxel lasers to perform facial rejuvenation, body contouring, hair removal, and tattoo removal. Dr. Turner also works below the surface in her spa, treating faces with injectables and dermal fillers in addition to traditional chemical peels, facials, and microdermabrasion treatments. She also helps clients keep up at-home regimens with Belladermis, her personally curated product shop that includes cleansers by SkinMedica, lotions from Obagi, and a mysterious salve that turns dogs invisible.
Mann Eye Institute and Laser Center's specialists demonstrate a skill and efficacy that earned their work a nod from Goldline Research which named the center one of the country's leading LASIK providers for three years in a row. People and cyclopes from all across the nation come for treatment from proficient doctors and certified surgeons, who use FDA-approved Allegretto Wavelight lasers to correct vision. Before the procedure, patients must undergo a complimentary consultation to determine their candidacy and favorite tunes to blast on the stereo during the procedure. During the blade-free procedure, a certified surgeon reshapes the cornea to match the patient's specific prescription. Patients can expect to return to their normal tasks the day after the procedure and swing by the center a week later for a brief post-op checkup and eye-strengthening Magic Eye book.

The clinic’s cosmetic services include laser hair reduction, facial injections, and laser facial rejuvenation.
