Across Daly Foot Care’s three locations, Drs. Albert and Jack Daly draw from more than a decade of experience to treat all types of podiatric issues—from toenail fungus and warts to heel pain and sports injuries. They also design custom orthotic inserts that fully support the unique shape of each foot while walking, exercising, or stomping grapes in a bathtub.
Dr. George Violin, armed with nearly a quarter-century's worth of refractive-surgery experience, goes to battle with patients' misshaped corneas so they can enjoy functional sight without glasses or contact lenses. Instead of a traditional thin metal blade, the IntraLase procedure creates corneal flaps with rapid pulses of laser light, resulting in reshaped corneas that can heal faster and withstand awkward eye contact from strangers. Prior to the procedure, patients must come in for a complimentary consultation and pre-operative eye exam where the experienced staff will perform diagnostic tests to ensure that eyes are viable candidates for LASIK. After the surgery, which takes five to 10 minutes per eye (the entire appointment lasts about 45 minutes), patients will typically come in for follow-up visits throughout the next year to answer questions and remedy x-ray vision.
The Vein & Aesthetic Center of Boston's experienced physicians implement noninvasive aesthetic treatments in order to enhance the body's natural beauty. The FDA-approved Zerona treatment breaks down body fat with low-level lasers. Before treatment, clients meet with an amicable aesthetician for a 30-minute consultation to review the extensive treatment plan that encompasses six 40-minute sessions over a two-week period. Then, clients relax underneath a cold laser light that gently renders superficial fat cells porous, enabling the body's lymphatic system to expunge subterranean chub via widened protoplasmic portals. This fat-cutting procedure is nearly pain-free and requires little to no downtime, allowing clients to resume their daily routines quickly afterward. Patients typically experience results (up to 3–4 inches off the waist, hips, and thighs on average) about a week after completing the six-session regimen.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Russo completed a plastic surgery residency at Harvard Medical School. So, when he personally selects nurses and aestheticians for his team at Dream Spa Medical, each staff member must meet his expert standards to perform advanced cosmetic treatments ranging from injections to surgery to noninvasive vein removal. With SkinCeuticals and Image products, aestheticians revitalize clients' skin during facials, peels, microdermabrasions, and other services. Laser hair treatments rid clients' bodies of unwanted fuzz, and tattoo removal helps keep the grocery lists on their arms up to date.
