Board-certified in surgery, Dr. Albers has been offering surgical care to the residents of southeastern Indiana since 2000. Dr. Albers specializes in general and vascular surgeries, and also offers a number of cosmetic procedures. Robin Hartman serves as both medical assistant and medical aesthetician for Dr. Albers. All laser and cosmetic services are performed in Dr. Albers' Batesville office located in the Margaret Mary Physician Center (26 Six Pine Ranch Road). No local anesthesia is typically required and patients generally resume normal activities quickly. These include:
Smartlipo® melts away and removes fat in trouble spots like your neck, jawline, arms, back, love handles, stomach, saddlebags and knees. It is similar to traditional liposuction, however the use of the laser tightens and firms the skin, contributing to a smoother shape. Results may vary, but usually can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over three to six months.
Botox® Cosmetic is used to temporarily improve the appearance of frown lines between the brows and crow's feet lines by targeting the underlying cause of these lines - the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting. Dr. Albers will inject these muscles with Botox® to reduce muscle activity. Also available is Juvéderm XC, an injectable filler used to instantly smooth wrinkles around your nose and mouth for up to one year.
Dr. Albers offers laser hair removal for all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, chest, underarms and back. During the procedure, some patients experience a stinging sensation. The area also may be a bit red and swollen after treatment. Most areas require three to six treatments and patients can typically return to normal activities right away.
Through the use of a laser, Dr. Albers can treat a broad range of veins ranging from tiny spider veins to deep blue veins quickly and effectively. Knotty varicose veins are not good candidates. An evaluation with Dr. Albers can help you determine your best course of treatment. Often, patients find that one or two treatments are sufficient. However, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color and size of your veins. Most patients experience a stinging sensation during the procedure and some redness or swelling may occur. Patients generally resume most normal activities immediately.
Whether you have acne, brown spots or just large pores, Dr. Albers' laser services can improve your skin tone and surface imperfections on any part of your face, neck and chest. During treatments, you will notice a mild stinging sensation. The number of treatments necessary varies depending on each patient's needs.
In addition to offering laser treatments, Dr. Albers offers Obagi products for skin rejuvenation. Obagi products can only be obtained through a physician and may be used as a compliment to laser treatments or as a stand-alone treatment. A personal skin care plan can be set up at the time of your initial consultation.
