Dr. Lori Greenwald

“…And Action!”

Hi everyone,

Dr. Greenwald was really gracious to sponsor Ellen to go back to acting lessons – and all of us are so incredibly excited!

We took a series of short videos during that class, and today we are revealing the first one. Pat Lawton, Ellen’s coach, talks about her teaching, some of the intricacies of what it’s like to become an acting professional, and particularly, how to break down a monologue.

We were totally dismayed when we saw Ellen in action. In the next video we will be showing you how she absolutely nailed it! Stay tuned. Coming up shortly.

Treatment Options for Donna

Hi everybody,

When Donna came to us, she reported tiredness, heaviness, restlessness, night cramping, and pain in her legs, especially the left one. The main reason for that is her venous disease – which we will take care of here at our Bloomfield, CT office.

In the video above Dr. Greenwald goes through Donna’s treatment procedure and explains every step of the way. Dr. Greenwald will use a Venaseal Closure system, which will improve the blood flow by sealing the diseased vein. From that point on, blood will be flowing through the rest of Donna’s veins – with no long run side effects. The BEST part: the effect from that procedure will be virtually overnight. We are so excited to see Donna smile again and being able to play with her grand daughter when we are done with this procedure!

Check out the video above to see how everything will be done.

Why Donna’s Legs Hurt

· Venous Disease Debunked ·

Varicose veins, heaviness/tiredness, throbbing, aching, swelling, restlessness, painful cramping at night – those are the symptoms Donna came to us with. She’s been having them for way too long – and  Dr. Greenwald gives us a detailed insight where all that comes from.

Interested in finding out what the solution to all that is? Stay tuned, it’s coming soon to a computer near you.

Judi’s Dramatic Transition With Dr. Lori In Progress!

Judi’s Dramatic Transition With Dr. Lori In Progress!

Judi Kirkpatrick’s Transition is coming into the final stretch. She had her Botox injections last week and is already seeing huge results.

“The results are dramatic,” Kirkpatrick said. “The lines in my foreheads are either gone or almost gone! Also, the lines at the corners of my eyes are greatly diminished!”

Kirkpatrick, a cancer survivor and a former small town mayor originally from Texas, asked for Dr. Lori Greenwald’s help with her transition to become Mother-of-The Bride. Judi survived a rare form of cancer and the treatments that saved her life, prematurely aged her. When Judi’s son was married, she looked at the pictures of herself  and cried.

“I looked like a person who had been through a lot,” Kirkpatrick said in a previous interview. “I looked at that picture of myself and said, is that really me?” Judi’s daughter gets married in Texas on June 3rd. Judi leaves for the wedding on May 20th! We will be at the wedding in Texas with Judi and her family. Be sure to follow us on Facebook for the dramatic transition that will no doubt, be a real tear-jerker! Judi looks amazing already but she still has a few weeks left to go in her Transition with Dr. Lori, including a make-over  at the Mac Studio Salon in Windsor. That’s next week. We will give you a preview of Judi’s new look as it unfolds!

More Transitions For Cynthia

· Sold! Cynthia is moving out of her Middletown home and moving towards her future! ·


Transitions is empowering me– not to just change my appearance–but to change my life! Thank-you Dr. Lori Greenwald. You are my angel here on Earth. 🙂

My house sold! I’m moving out but moving on with my future thanks to Dr. Lori Greenwald! Transitions is empowering me– not to just change my appearance– but to change my life! Thank-you Dr. Lori. 🙂

Going, going, gone! I’ve been trying for months to sell my house and it finally happened! It’s all part of my overall plan to work for myself and travel the country. A house is just four walls that has been holding me back. I want freedom to live where I want to and have my office travel with me.

It’s really kind of overwhelming – all of this change that’s coming my way! Starting my new business, undergoing my physical transformation, and now moving out of my home! Yup…on top of all this transition, I just sealed the deal to sell my home. I need to move out in a month! It’s great news – but honestly, I can’t get over the timing. Don’t they say everything happens in threes? Fortunately, I’ve been packing and purging since I put it on the market in October. I plan to move in with friends while I solidify plans with my business. And then, once Bunnuku is up and running, I’m going to travel around the country with my brother and sister-in-law in their small motor home.

I’m embracing the change because it’s really out of character for me. My typical approach is to think about change and then procrastinate, but the self-confidence I’ve gained from the improvements in my looks is helping me break out of my old pattern. I really credit Dr. Lori Greenwald of Vanishing Veins and Vivesse Med Spa with this overhaul in my attitude – not just in my outward appearance. I feel like if a complete stranger believes in me and my success, then I need to believe in myself.

So for now, I’m putting the packing on the fast track: I’ve been working with two consignment stores to get rid of my furniture; I’ve been sending my books to Amazon to get those sold; and I’ve reserved space in a storage facility down the street. I’ll tell you what’s given me the hardest time: the family heirlooms. I’m the only girl in my family so I’ve wound up with all of my relatives’ china and tchotchkes. It’s been an emotional torture session trying to figure out what to keep and what to give away – I’ve had to make some tough decisions. But it’s really empowering because I’ve wanted to make these changes and now I feel like I have the strength to move forward and transition into this next phase of my life.

Doctor Lori Greenwald Preforms Vein Procedure

Doctor Lori Greenwald may have temporarily lost her voice but her mission to transform women’s lives is as strong as ever. For weeks now,  the two winners of our Transitions medical make-over have been undergoing several procedures from our Med Spa services but this week, cancer survivor and soon to be mother-of-the-bride, Judi Kirkpatrick,  underwent procedures for the painful veins in her legs. Judi says the veins in her legs cause her major pain and burning especially when she has been on her feet all day. Dr. Greenwald preformed several procedures to alleviate that pain and more work needs to be done over the next several weeks. Check out the video from one of the procedures Dr. Greenwald preformed. Judi said she felt a little pinch, then a little burning and then the pain was gone. Read more here to learn about the personal moments Dr. Lori and Judi shared before the procedure.
