At Flat Rock Aesthetics, board-certified physicians Dr. David Patterson and Dr. Jennifer Fetz oversee teams of experienced laser technicians who fix up skins with high-tech treatments. Noninvasive light therapy can kick-start the skin's natural collagen production, obscure hyperpigmentation, and obliterate scar tissue, while CoolGlide lasers evict unwanted hair with little to no heat, discomfort, or legal intervention. The savvy techs can also shut-down facial and spider veins with noninvasive procedures that are safe for all skin types.
Faulty valves, age, and even genetic predisposition can all be responsible for the appearance of unsightly?and occasionally painful?varicose and spider veins. At Venocure, Dr. George Nahhas specializes in using cutting-edge medical technologies to remove these blemishes using minimally invasive methods. The VNUS Closure procedure uses ultrasound-guided catheters to enter the affected veins and then bombard the walls with a barrage of radio frequency energy, which causes the veins to collapse and minimizes their appearance to the naked eye. In addition to this highly refined approach, Dr. Nahhas also offers other tried-and-true methods for concealing the signs of blue-tinged varicose veins, such as sclerotherapy injections and compression stockings, as opposed to drawing skin-colored tattoos over the affected areas.
