Under the guidance of medical director Dr. Irving Restituyo, the staff at Avalon Medical Spa clears skin of discolorations with laser vein treatments that last 15 or 30 minutes. Inside private treatment rooms, patients recline on cushy tables as the medical-grade equipment bombards spider veins with brilliant flashes of light, like paparazzi do to Sasquatch at his favorite restaurants. The laser beams target the spider veins’ pent-up hemoglobin, which absorbs the light and transfers the resulting heat into the blood vessel without damaging the surrounding tissue. Two or four treatments take place at four- to six-week intervals, depending upon the size and extent of each client’s vein colony. Although patients’ prognoses vary, many note that smaller veins disappear within one to two treatments, allowing them to test whether or not their vampire suitors were only interested in them for superficial reasons.
Avalon Medical Spa
Medical Director Dr. Irving Restituyo of Avalon Medical Spa oversees a staff of one physician assistant and two registered nurses who draw upon experience in fields ranging from cosmetic surgery to personal training to facilitate their patients' anti-aging and weight-loss goals. Cosmeceutical products by Obagi and Jan Marini fuel traditional facials, and advanced peels and microdermabrasions target signs of age—such as wrinkles and a purse full of hard candies. The majority of Avalon's remaining treatments rely upon injectables or lasers—the latter of which resurfaces skin plagued with excess hair, spider veins, or cellulite. Avalon's staffers carefully smooth wrinkles with Botox or Juvederm, as well as fat deposits with mesotherapy or Lipotherme.
