Dr. Richard S. Bragg believes that outward appearance impacts the way people feel on the inside. That’s why he built his practice with a passion for making people feel better about their appearance mixed right into the foundation. As director of Florida Vein Care and Cosmetic Center, Dr. Bragg follows this mission by treating patients with safe, effective, and advanced cosmetic treatments.
At two locations, Dr. Bragg and his staff utilize surgical and non-surgical techniques to perform procedures like repairing stretched and torn ear piercings, and eliminating red spots from the epidermis. His staff also nourishes skin with glycolic facials and nixes wrinkles with Botox Cosmetic and Juvederm.
Dr. William Robbins and the staff at Nu Wellness Rejuvenation Center help each of their clients battle the effects of aging and weight gain with a host of beautifying treatments. Weight-loss treatments spur on the fat-burning process and rid bodies of bulges that stubbornly defy diet and exercise. Botox and Juverderm injections, on the other hand, help to smooth away wrinkles while facials and peels keep faces looking radiant. Hormone therapy rounds out the center's offerings and works to keep body chemistry properly balanced.
At Florida Vein Care Specialists, Dr. Christopher Meyer, M.D., specializes in the banishment or reduction of swelling, uncomfortable, or merely unsightly visible veins in the legs. Treatments include sclerotherapy, an injection-based treatment, laser therapy, or microphlebectomy, which is the removal of larger veins. Clients can experience a "VeinGogh" treatment, the process of using microbursts of a high-frequency electrical pulse to help coagulate the blood to collapse vein walls. They can also smooth out legs with a microphlebectomy treatment, which allows patients to resume daily activities within the 24 hours, roughly the same amount one should wait to swim after eating.
At Elite Vein Care Center, board-certified specialist Dr. Gregory Samano II and his staff place all their concentration on the treatment of varicose and spider veins. Specializing in these fields, they offer four effective treatment options, including the Venefit targeted endovenous therapy that delivers consistent heat via catheter to reduce discomfort and bruising while collapsing and closing enlarged leg veins. They can also remove affected veins through small incisions or cause them to fade with Asclera injections, turning veins into scar tissue that gradually fades away, unlike many bands that were popular in the 1960s. The team can also perform laser vein therapy, a noninvasive procedure in which the doctor uses powerful pulses of light to dissipate spider or varicose veins.
When it comes to reducing the appearance of veins, a visit to Winter Park Vein Specialists is the next best thing to a fountain of youth. Instead of forever cursing clients to have baby legs, however, this team—led by Dr. Christopher Meyer—makes them look like a younger version of themselves by using lasers to clear up varicose veins, edema, and venous ulcers. Endovenous laser therapy, for instance, uses heat to close the visible veins and cause them to reroute beneath the skin's surface, whereas microphlebectomy and sclerotherapy treatments use micro incisions to either completely remove or dry out the veins. The handheld VeinGogh device, meanwhile, achieves the same result, but with pulses of high frequency electrical energy.
Dr. Christopher Meyer deals in two worlds—the cosmetic and the medical—and he draws from both when treating problem veins. He used to become frustrated when he heard that people with varicose and spider veins were having difficulty finding treatment, as many caregivers deemed the problem a purely aesthetic one. So he took up work at Florida Vein Care Specialists, where he now administers treatments such as VenaCure EVLT, a laser-based procedure, to eradicate veins in the interest of his clients' health and confidence. The noninvasive treatment sends laser energy through a small fiber that heats and seals off the vein. Each session takes about 30 minutes, and requires no downtime for the patient, who can walk around immediately after the appointment.
