Though Dr. Javier Alonso specializes in vein, cardiovascular, and thoracic issues at Texas Vein and Vascular, he and his staff administer a full spectrum of cosmetic treatments at TVV Medispa that go beyond spider-vein removal. Injectables, peels, and resurfacing lasers keep complexions as smooth and even as a face-shaped shuffleboard. Lasers target both unwanted hair and sagging areas of skin around the face as well as the body, which can be toned or soothed through wraps and massages.
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.
At Bastrop Total Skin Care, board-certified practitioner Dr. Rejeev Gupta and his team of trained professionals treat weather-beaten skin with advanced restorative techniques. Spark a renaissance of healthier, younger-looking skin on your front side with the full-face photofacial session, a noninvasive alternative to traditional cosmetic refurbishment. The Syneron skin-rejuvenation system gently administers light energies across the face to precisely target fleshy flaws, including rosacea, spider veins, age spots, and slap marks from a jealous sun who found out about that romantic evening spent with the moon. With minimal downtime after the procedure, clients can likely return to work the very same day. In order to successfully pamper prepossessing pores, faces typically require five treatments (treatment numbers may vary depending on individual skin type and the severity of skin damage).
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.
