Laser Spider Vein Removal

Laser Spider Vein Removal Sherman Oaks | San Fernando | Calabasas, CASpider veins are small blue, red, and purple intertwined veins that are easily visible through the skin. They are generally visible on the legs and the face. Both men and women, who otherwise may have perfectly flawless skin, might be victims to these unsightly twisted veins under the skin.

What causes spider veins?

There are many causes and conditions that lead to spider veins, some of them being heredity, hormonal influences, obesity, occupations that involve long hours of standing, amongst others. But the good news is that it is treatable and people suffering from spider veins have a perfectly good chance of recovering from it.

Spider vein removal treatment

The spider vein removal treatment is a non-invasive procedure. It constitutes of pulses of laser emissions to the affected veins which are absorbed by the red blood cells in them. The heat from the laser then causes the affected veins to close, making them disappear from the surface of the skin. The treatment may have some side-effects that might include redness, itching, and swelling and may differ from person to person. The doctor administering the treatment will be able to give medications, if necessary, to keep the side-effects in check. After the treatment the spider veins may fade or disappear completely. Sometimes they do reappear after several months, but it mostly depends on the severity of the condition and other issues relating to the patient’s medical history.

The warming sensation should not raise much concern as the cooling mechanism in the Sciton profile takes care of it. There might be some visible redness immediately after the treatment which subsides within an hour or so.

Botox Injections

Botox Before & After Photos

Botox Before & After Photos

Botox was first used in cosmetic treatment to treat frown lines between eyebrows, but since then it has evolved to treat and correct many more conditions other than just frown lines. With more and more people becoming conscious of their body and health conditions the surge in the demand of Botox treatment has been phenomenal. But do we have a steady supply of good doctors with the right credentials who can actually do justice to the treatment?

What the does the treatment consist of?

The treatment involves injecting small, diluted amounts of Botox to certain facial muscles in a way to soften lines that have been caused due to excessive muscle action. Frowns and laugh lines are good examples of the same. What is really important here is to understand that the amount of Botox to be injected and the location should be monitored very carefully. Botox in high doses can be fatal, if the dose is too small it might not work properly, and if it is not injected in the specified area the results can be disastrous. Here comes the need for a doctor with the right credentials who knows how to carry out the treatment effectively and efficiently. Plastic surgeons, occuloplastic surgeons, and dermatologists who have been properly trained and are board-certified are the best people to go to for a Botox treatment.

Are medical spas good for Botox treatments?

Medical spas like the Rejuvenate Medical Spa offer Botox treatments among their other boutique services. Special treatments like fractional laser skin surfacing, permanent makeup, acne treatments are offered in most of the med spas. With anti-aging treatments on a rise, Botox is sought after by both men and women of all ages, and is a highly-demanded treatment method. Medical spas which are monitored by accredited doctors give one the feeling of getting rejuvenated rather than getting something treated.

How does an accredited doctor do the job better?

A doctor who has undergone training of how to administer Botox does not only know how to carry out the treatment but also has knowledge of the action of the treatment. Doctors with credentials study the health history of the concerned patients and take into account the side-effects that can occur post- treatment. It is important to have a good idea of the patient’s medical history as different people react differently to the same treatment. A novice specialist might carry out the procedure without a hitch but might not be well-prepared to deal with the repercussions. Botox, though not a surgical process, requires a good amount of training and knowledge of the process and the procedure.

How to choose the right doctor for Botox treatments?

One can be assured that the doctors who are members of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) have detailed knowledge about facial anatomy. They make more informed decisions regarding aesthetic plastic surgery and their follow-up routine and medication. ASAPS members also make sure that they administer safe and high-quality procedures to the patients thus giving them more natural-looking results. ASAPS is made up of nearly 2600 plastic surgeons, one of whom is Dr. Bijan Farah who is the Medical Director of Rejuvenate Medical Spa.

The face not only is central in expression of emotion but also is a central organ of sense. There is nothing wrong in trying to keep it looking young and beautiful, but one should always be mindful of the fact as to who is performing the treatment.
