Sclerotherapy of Spider Veins

Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to treat unsightly spider veins by injecting a specialized solution into the vein, causing irritation and eventual collapse of the vein. The collapsed veins are then safely absorbed by the body into the bloodstream.

This procedure is performed in the office setting, giving effective results with minimal pain and no need for anesthesia. Patients can return to work and other normal activities the same day. The number of injections needed during each session may vary depending on the number and size of the damaged veins.

We perform this procedure on facial and chest veins.

FAQs: Sclerotherapy

How does sclerotherapy work?
A medication is injected into the vein, which causes the vein walls to become irritated. This causes the vein to slowly quit working and over time to fade away.
How quickly does sclerotherapy work?
Remember you did not develop the veins over night, so the veins do not go away over night. You will see nice changes at about 3 weeks and continue to see them fade away over about 6 months.
What medication is used for sclerotherapy?
At Skincare Aesthetics, we use polidocanol, sometimes known as Asclera.
Can you make all of my veins go away?
Sclerotherapy will not make all of your veins go away, however it will make the area treated a lot better.
Does sclerotherapy stop me from making new veins?
No. You are going to continue to make new veins. We recommend a recheck once a year so we can easily stay ahead of the veins and keep them under control.

Syneron™ Matrix RF™

927c76ef264df19fecd8442322f87cf2Sublative Rejuvenation with the Matrix RF™ system by Syneron™ is an FDA-approved treatment for unwanted skin imperfections such as wrinkles, scars, discolorations, sun damage and more. This advanced treatment uses low-level light therapy to provide gradual but noticeable improvements to the appearance of the skin without overheating or damaging the outer layer of the skin.

The Sublative Rejuvenation treatment produces results comparable to aggressive treatments like facelift or a chemical peel, without the associated downtime and painful recovery often associated with those procedures. To achieve effective results, most patients will need three 20-minute treatment sessions, each spaced four to six weeks apart. The specific number will depend on each patient’s individual skin condition and treatment goals.

RF energy is precisely directed the skin in the form of a matrix. Healthy skin around the dots accelerates the healing process of the skin. Post treatment, new collagen and healthy skin cells are produced. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discolorations are reduced. The texture of your skin becomes more smooth and elastic.

This technology has been shown to effectively treat mild to moderate wrinkles, red and brown spots, and textural irregularities. This is truly the next generation of safe and effective rejuvenation technology.

Nice changes within the skin will be noticed even after one treatment but final results will be most noticeable 6 mths after the final treatment.

Areas treated are all over the face, acne scars, fine lines around the eyes, and neck

FAQs: Sublative Rejuvenation™ using eMatrix™

What makes Sublative Rejuvenation different from other aggressive fractional devices?
Patients today desire face-lift-type results, yet do not want the weeks–to even months–of downtime associated with those treatments. Aggressive treatments also come with limitations on the range of skin types that can be treated, due to the high risk of skin discoloration. Although classified as an aggressive treatment, Sublative Rejuvenation is unique because it delivers optimal efficiency with minimal downtime at an affordable price point–and it’s safe for ALL skin types.
How does Sublative Rejuvenation using eMatrix work?
To achieve the best possible results when addressing any skin imperfection, the energy, whether it be laser or light, must be delivered below the skin without overheating the top layer of the skin. This has been the challenge with current more aggressive treatments, because they work by overheating the top layer of the skin to the point of complete ablation (removal), forcing new skin to develop. Sublative Rejuvenation uses fractional bi-polar radio frequency to penetrate through the skin–to allow more energy beneath the surface of the skin, to really maximize collagen production–while keeping the top layer of the skin intact. Post
treatment, you may notice increased levels of beneficial collagen as new healthy skin cells are produced. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discolorations are reduced, and the texture of your skin becomes smoother and more elastic.
How many treatments do I need?
Each patient’s treatment protocol will vary based on individual needs and results desired. Most patients will receive three treatments, each spaced four to six weeks apart.
When can I expect to see results?
Patients will begin to see results after the first treatment and results will continue to improve up to one year post treatment. Because this treatment works to rebuild collagen, there are no limitations on how long the results last. Maintenance treatments are recommended post one year to maintain and further enhance current results.
Does it hurt?
Unlike other aggressive fractional treatments, Sublative Rejuvenation with eMatrix is very tolerable. During treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation. After treatment, a pink or red “sunburn” appearance and feeling is common. Topical anesthetic ointments can be used to reduce unpleasant sensations during treatment.
Are there any side effects?
No clinical side effects have been reported to date. The beauty about Sublative Rejuvenation is its capability to offer significant results to ALL skin types with little downtime. You can put mineral makeup on the skin right after the treatment.
Is everyone a good candidate for Sublative Rejuvenation?
Sublative Rejuvenation is the only fractional treatment that can be used on all skin types. Some skin conditions (such as eczema) may prohibit patients from receiving the treatment.

Photo Rejuvenation & Hair Removal (Intense Pulsed Light)

b1008fbbe627c32c90f6cd84d1747fef2Photo rejuvenation can reduce the signs of aging and restore our skin to a more youthful appearance by treating sun damage, freckles, age spots, enlarged pores and redness, as well as birthmarks and uneven pigmentation. This is done by a non-invasive laser treatment that delivers pulses of light to the targeted areas of the skin.

There is no recovery time associated with this procedure and a very low risk of complications, giving it many advantages over microdermabrasion or chemical peels, several days of peeling. Patients will usually require several rejuvenation sessions, which take about 30 minutes each, in order to achieve their desired results. Age spots and freckles respond very quickly. Reds from rosacea usually take more sessions than when treating brown spots.

Safely and comfortably fade the appearance of skin imperfections caused by the sun, and uneven skin tones caused by brown and red areas. Helps with fine lines, reduces pore size, and improves skin texture as well. It is still considered the gold standard for treating the reds caused but Rosacea.

The areas most often treated are the face, chest and hands

Laser Hair Removal

Forget shaving, waxing, tweezing and electrolysis – Laser hair removal technology provides long-lasting hair removal on any area of the body. Laser photoepilation uses high-energy pulses of energy to remove unwanted hair from the face, back, legs, bikini line and other areas without damaging nearby tissue. First, a cold gel is applied to the skin. Then the laser handpiece is moved back and forth across the selected area. Hair beneath the skin surface absorbs the energy and heats up, loosening from the follicles and eventually falling out. Patients can return to work and all regular activities immediately after the procedure. Hair begins immediately and is long-lasting, with some permanent thinning. Several treatments may be desired for optimal results.

Waxing

Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different growth cycle. Strip waxing (soft wax) is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. A  paper strip is applied and pressed firmly, adhering the strip to the wax and the wax to the skin. The strip is then quickly removed  against the direction of hair growth, as parallel as possible to the skin to avoid trauma to the skin. This removes the wax along with the hair.

At Skincare Aesthetics we provide waxing of the eye brows, chin, lip, sideburns and cheeks
