Dimitri Dermatology liberates skin of pestilent spider veins with sclerotherapy procedures. During treatments, a member of Dr. Elizabeth Dimitri’s team first injects the offending epidermal arachnids with a solution that forces vessels to swell and self-bind. As the treated blood clots, veins begin to recoil like bashful pythons, ultimately admitting defeat and fading from view. Sclerotherapy requires no downtime (although strenuous activity is discouraged) and typically incurs only slight redness at the remedied area. Two sessions are usually sufficient for complete vein banishment, although especially ornery squatters may require additional treatments.
A visit to the Harvey dental practice promises a friendly staff that will make you feel more at home than the unfriendly staff at your current home. After a visual examination of your teeth, a full cosmetic consultation with the friendly doctor will mimic 12th-grade visits to the guidance counselor with a chat about your pie-hole's potential. The doc will present you with a variety of available options to direct you on the right path toward a Daytime Emmy Award–winning smile. You'll be sent home with a week's worth of Nite White do-it-yourself teeth-whitening products to administer before bed for 5–7 nights. As you slumber, Nite White's mild solution of teeth-bleaching peroxides will labor like a camp of miniature Zambonis to scrub away food, coffee, tobacco, and syrup stains, leaving your smile embrightened and betwinkled.
A thriving practice founded by two accomplished doctors, Devereux & Nguyen Orthodontics cleans and corrects carrot cutters using a comfortable and metal-less alternative to braces. The straightening process begins with a full exam, which maps out tonsil caves using x-ray cameras and impressionable teeth trays. A 3-D graphics program synthesizes this information into a detailed chomper chart, helping doctors design a finely tuned set of invisible fang shifters that can help erase mouth gaps and ease crowding.

In 1959, Robert Trent Jones Sr. completed work on Timberlane's 7100-yard, par-72 golf course near the west bank of the Mississippi, and it still stands as a friendly, challenging round in a pleasant, private setting. Mature oaks line the sides of each Bermuda-grass fairway, and in 2007, Timberlane re-surfaced its expansive greens with Tif Eagle turf, giving putts a new zip and helicopter pilots a new view. Before hitting the links, sharpen up your chipping, putting, pitching, pitch-shifting, and Super Bowl Shuffling on the all-grass practice range and putting green, or try the driving range nearby. When you're ready, hop in your provided golf cart to match wits with the labyrinthine course, which features four sets of tee areas per hole, 17 water hazards, 80 sand bunkers, and 13 mechanical yetis. If he's around, see if you can snag a tip from resident PGA pro Tim Brown, who was named by Golf Digest as the #1 Best Teacher in Louisiana in 2009.
Bayou Barriere Golf Club stretches up and down the bank of the Intracoastal Canal, dividing 27 holes into three nine-hole layouts that can be played as three distinctive 18-hole combinations. Extending up to 6,646 yards at its longest, the course challenges golfers with holes ranging from short par 3s to lengthy dogleg par 5s. Three sets of tees make the course playable for golfers of all abilities, and tree-lined fairways and an abundance of sand bunkers and water hazards require precise shot selection throughout the round. The course’s bermuda-grass greens and tee boxes are maintained as emerald alleyways with the aid of a new irrigation system, which is five times more powerful than the club’s previous setup, and nearly twice as effective as holding an epic water-gun fight every hour.
