Vein clinic Procedures
More than 80 million people in the United States have problems with their veins, the vessels that return blood to the heart once it has circulated through the body. Many people suffering from venous disorders come to phlebologists looking for treatment to either relieve discomfort or improve the visible appearance of these veins.
Veins have one-way valves that help keep blood flowing in the proper direction. If these valves stop functioning the way they are supposed to, blood can flow backwards and pool in the veins, causing them to stretch, becoming more visible at the skin surface and, often, uncomfortable.
These enlarged blood vessels fall into two groups: spider veins and varicose veins. Spider veins are visible on the surface of the skin as red, blue or purple lines. Varicose veins are larger and deeper and often look like bluish bumps under the skin.

Lipo Center Procedures
Dr. Torres specializes in using a gentle in-office technique for permanent fat removal and body contouring (reshaping) using two sophisticated pieces of equipment. The VASER® Lipo machine uses ultrasound energy to immediately convert fat to liquid which is then gently removed with a special suction cannula. The LipoTherme® Laser uses laser energy to melt fat as well. It also has the capability of tightening the skin from underneath the dermis where the collagen fibers are. These done in awake, but relaxed patients and are pain-free.
