Feeling Beautiful Is Not Only Skin Deep

Feeling Beautiful Is Not Only Skin Deep

You don’t have to live with stubborn fat areas or ugly leg veins. There are solutions available that will eliminate the need to hide those imperfections.

A beautiful you begins with a consultation with your dermatologic surgeon and vein specialist to see what treatments and options are best for you.

SmartLipo Laser Body Sculpting

A revolutionary, minimally invasive treatment that helps to eliminate those stubborn areas of fat including that tummy pouch, the extra roll on your thighs, love handles, turkey neck, bra fat and back fat just to name a few areas that many people are frustrated by.

SmartLipo Laser Body Sculpting works by permanently destroying fat cells. This allows you to create the curves and contours ideal for your body without the concern of fat returning in areas treated if you maintain a healthy diet and exercise. You can finally have the body you’ve always wanted.

SmartLipo Laser Body Sculpting is a laser-assisted lipolysis (fat destruction) procedure performed using a one millimeter canula (or tube) inserted into the skin. A laser fiber inside of the canula delivers energy directly to fat cells, causing them to rupture and drain away as liquid that is removed during the procedure.

Simultaneously, tissue around the area coagulates, resulting in overall skin tightening. It is a minimally invasive procedure which usually requires only local anesthesia.

Results can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over three to six months. A compression garment is worn for a short period after treatment, depending on the body area treated.

You Don’t Have To Suffer With Leg Veins

Spider veins are small superficial blood vessels that appear red or blue in the skin. They commonly occur on the legs, but can occur on other areas of the body. Larger dilated blood vessels, called varicose veins, may appear raised above the skin surface. Varicose veins may occur with spider veins.

Sclerotherapy: The injection method for treating leg veins. One of several kinds of sclerosing solutions is injected directly into the vein with a very fine needle. The solution irritates the lining of the vein causing it to swell, stick together, and the blood to clot. Over a period of weeks, the vein turns into scar tissue that fades, eventually becoming barely noticeable.

Lasers: Lasers can also be used to eliminate leg veins. Wavelengths of light are absorbed by the blood in the vein to destroy them. There are many types of lasers that can be used.

Endovenous Laser Ablation

The newest technology available for the treatment of varicose veins.  A small single needle incision is made in the leg and a fiber is inserted into the varicose vein. The laser is activated and the vein is safely closed as the fiber is moved through the vein, gently heating it.

Once the vein is closed, the blood that was circulating through this vein is simply rerouted to other healthy veins and the varicose vein vanishes. Endovenous laser is minimally invasive and performed in your doctor’s office.
