Botox® injections have been found to temporarily reduce frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead creases, neck bands and other wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the facial muscles causing the wrinkles.
Using a chemical solution applied to the face, peels can be used to smooth wrinkles, fade blemishes and pigment problems, reduce the visibility of acne scars and remove pre-cancerous growths.
For unsightly spider veins on thighs, calves and ankles, sclerotherapy utilizes a series of superficial injections to collapse the veins, causing them to vanish.
The aging process, sun damage, or a condition known as Rosacea can be the underlying cause of facial veins, especially around the nose and cheek areas. Lasers are often used to help visible veins fade by applying laser light to targeted areas. The light converts to heat, cauterizing the veins.
