Get Your Gams Beach-Ready with Sclerotherapy

Though the temperatures here in Sunny Florida remain a bit chilly, springtime is just around the corner. If you’ve got varicose veins, make sure you’re ready to don that flirty little sundress or hit the beach in your new bikini with expert sclerotherapy treatment.

Varicose veins form when, for any of a variety of reasons, the veins are unable to keep blood flowing properly. Rather than being pumped back up to the heart, blood can pool backward and collect inside the veins, primarily in the legs and feet. This enlarges the veins, causing them to protrude above the surface of the skin, often creating a blue-hued, twisted look.

A top proven solution is sclerotherapy. This highly effective treatment involves your surgeon injecting a sclerosing agent into varicose vein valves, causing them to collapse, smooth out and ultimately disappear. Most patients see a marked improvement with just one treatment. But typical cases require two to three treatments administered a month apart and full healing can take up to eight weeks.

This means that right now is the perfect time to undergo your first sclerotherapy treatment, assuring you’ll be ready to rock those leg-baring looks when the spring season rolls around. Find out how sclerotherapy can help improve the look and health of your legs by calling Jacksonville’s Parkway Plastic Surgery at 904-396-1186 to schedule a consultation.

What to Expect with Radiesse

If a smoother, firmer, younger look is on your list of resolutions and goals for 2016, Radiesse can help you achieve it. This minimally invasive treatment not only offers immediate results by plumping hollows and smoothing wrinkles, but it also provides long term results by boosting the body’s production of collagen, the structural protein that forms the connective tissue supporting the skin.

Radiesse is an injectable treatment made of tiny calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. These calcium microspheres are very similar to minerals that your body produces naturally. The solution lends immediate plumping and smoothing of the skin and stimulates the production of new collagen. Over time, the microspheres and gel are absorbed into the body, giving way to the increased volume of natural collagen.

No other dermal filler currently on the market can boast these calcium-based microspheres or the ability to jumpstart collagen production. Most competing fillers, like Restylane and Juvederm, use hyaluronic acid. While all three are safe and effective, offering immediate results, clinical trials show that Radiesse patients generally were more satisfied with their results. Plus, the ongoing collagen production means that Radiesse results last longer – up to a year, compared to the six months of results enjoyed with hyaluronic acid-based fillers.

Radiesse is highly affective for filling and smoothing of:

  • Smile lines: Also known as naolabial folds, these are the lines that run between the corners of the nose and mouth.
  • Marionette lines: the lines that run downward from the corners of the mouth.
  • Oral commissure: The corners of the mouth that, if naturally turned downward, can appear as as constant frowning.
  • Pre-jowl fold: The area on either side of the chin, where loss of facial volume can cause skin to sag over time.
  • Chin wrinkles: Horizontal lines that can form on your chin and distract from your smile.

Radiesse is safe for most patients, except those with certain allergies, illnesses, disabilities of the hand or bleeding disorders. If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, it’s best to hold off before opting for Radiesse treatments.
