  How to Choose Your Doctor  
Perhaps no aspect of your decision for cosmetic surgery is more critical than choosing the right surgeon to perform your procedure. The surgeon's credentials, training, experience and reproducibility of excellence in results are all important factors to take into consideration in making your choice.
Dr Baskin

Medical Director

Meet Dr Baskin
At the Body Beautiful Laser Medi-Spa and Advanced Vein Center, our top-flight team of doctors and technicians has years of experience in treating varicose and spider veins with a variety of methods, including compression therapy, sclerotherapy, and VNUS® Closure.
One of the reasons that we are regarded as leaders in our field is that we’re never satisfied with the status quo.  After all, technology is taking huge strides forward every day (every minute, in fact!); and we aim to do the same.
Of course, that involves a lot more than just having all of the latest, state-of-the-art equipment.  To keep pace with the rapid changes, we are constantly upgrading our own skills, and searching for specialists with unparalleled expertise in our areas of treatment.
Therefore, we are thrilled with the newest addition to our staff, Dr. Kevin Baskin, who joins us as our interventional radiologist.  His proficiency in diagnosing and treating varicose veins with minimally-invasive and interventional procedures is truly unmatched.  In addition, he is recognized as one of Pittsburgh’s foremost authorities in the use of medical Botox®.
Our Medical Director, Dr. Kevin Baskin, M.D., is an internationally-renowned interventional radiologist.  He has written, and contributed to, countless medical books and papers.  He has also advised the U. S. government and major international medical manufacturers on medical innovations, information technology, device regulation, and patient safety.
Dr. Baskin has worked at some of the foremost hospitals in the world, including Duke, the University of Iowa, the University of Toronto, Harvard, Boston University, and UPMC and Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, where he was Division Chief of Pediatric Interventional Radiology at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.
An active senior member of the Standards Committee for the Society of Interventional Radiologists (SIR), he works with his field’s elite to set the standards for the performance and safety of minimally-invasive procedures.  Dr. Baskin is also a Diplomate on the American Board of Radiology, the American College of Radiology, and the National Board of Medical Examiners.
A native of California, Dr. Baskin earned his medical degree at the Creighton University School of Medicine.
Indeed, his presence will further boost our reputation as the area’s premier facility for the treatment of vein diseases.
