Five Benefits of Sclerotherapy

Do you tend to wear long pants or skirts (even in the summer) because you want to hide spider veins?

Spider veins can be a struggle for both women and men. Fortunately, there’s a treatment available that can effectively diminish the appearance of spider veins. It’s called sclerotherapy, and it’s available at DermaClinic.

 

What Is Sclerotherapy?

 

Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure. The goal of sclerotherapy is to treat spider veins (and sometimes varicose veins). The treatment is extremely effective and is widely performed throughout the United States and in other countries. For example, in 2017 alone, more than 300,000 sclerotherapy procedures were performed in the U.S.

 

What Are the Benefits of Sclerotherapy?

It’s Affordable

Many individuals who struggle with spider veins and are looking for treatment want to know: How much does sclerotherapy cost?

Fortunately, there’s good news. Most of the procedures cost only a few hundred dollars — anywhere from $300 to $500.

When some people go in for cosmetic treatments, they’re worried about risks such as long- or short-term problems associated with the procedure. Certain procedures may indeed come with these risks. However, sclerotherapy is not one of them.

Because sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure, you don’t need any anesthesia before the treatment takes place, and it is carried out right in the office. Moreover, sclerotherapy recovery is a cinch. You can go right back to your normal life after you’ve concluded treatment. 

 

There Are Essentially Zero Side Effects

 

There are basically no side effects with sclerotherapy. Again, you are essentially free to go right back to your daily activities once you leave the clinic after treatment. 

The only slight discomfort that you may experience will involve a bit of a burning sensation when the injections are taking place and some mild itching afterward. It’s also possible you may have a bit of darkened skin or bruising near the injection site, but this goes away quickly.

 

The Procedure Is Quick

 

With no anesthesia involved and a procedure that takes place right in the clinic, it’s not a surprise that sclerotherapy takes just a few minutes — usually less than an hour.

You’ll Love the Results

 

Lastly and most importantly, the biggest benefit of sclerotherapy is that it works! You’ll love the results you get from this procedure as you’ll notice that it almost instantly improves the appearance of your spider veins. 

With most sclerotherapy treatments, the appearance of most or all treated spider veins will disappear or fade. Furthermore, the treatment is permanent. If you get new spider veins, these will need to be treated with sclerotherapy as well, but the results you’ve already achieved will last forever.

Get Bikini Ready With This Butt Acne Treatment

Body breakouts can cause many men and women to feel self-conscious about showing their skin. But when the summer season hits, this makes covering up completely a non-starter! If you’re someone who likes to sport a bikini on the beach or poolside, it’s time to get those body breakouts fixed ASAP. 

One of the worst areas to experience body breakouts is on the buttocks. Butt acne can be embarrassing as well as uncomfortable. Furthermore, it’s not easily treatable with normal body acne treatments because the skin on the buttocks tends to be delicate. 

Fortunately, there is an answer to butt acne. Here, we’ll tell you about a revolutionary new butt acne treatment called Gluteus Glow. This treatment targets butt acne and diminishes and eliminates it — leaving you with smooth, glowing skin you’ll be proud to show off this summer!

Before we delve into Gluteus Glow, however, let’s talk briefly about the core causes of butt acne.

 

What Causes Butt Acne?

 

best treatment for butt acneMost butt acne is caused by hormones or something called folliculitis. Hormonal acne is a common issue due to genetics. At certain times (such as during puberty, pregnancy, or menopause), fluctuating hormones may cause body breakouts on the buttocks and other areas. 

Folliculitis is the inflammation of the hair follicles. This could be because of wearing tight clothing around the buttock area or because of excess sweating on that area of the body. Sometimes, certain individuals are prone to developing folliculitis.

 

What Happens During the Gluteus Glow Butt Treatment?

 

DermaClinic’s revolutionary Gluteus Glow procedure is the best treatment for butt acne today. This butt enhancement treatment is affordable, quick, and highly effective. You only need to block off about an hour to have the treatment completed. The procedure itself is done in-clinic and takes only 30 to 45 minutes max.

The main goal of the Gluteus Glow treatment is to exfoliate the skin, polish it, remove damaged skin cells, and reduce dullness and uneven tone. Acne disappears, and what’s left is soft, supple skin with a smooth and even tone.

Two main procedures make up the Gluteus Glow treatment:

Dermabrasion

 

You may have heard of dermabrasion as an effective exfoliation treatment for “trouble spots” such as age or sun spots, acne, scars, uneven or rough patches, wrinkles, and fine lines. 

With dermabrasion performed on the buttocks, the outermost, dull layers of skin are sloughed off to reveal newer, fresher layer of skin, without problems like active acne or acne scarring. 

 

Chemical Peels

 

Chemical peels can penetrate slightly deeper than dermabrasion can. The procedure involves a chemical solution being applied to the buttocks, then peeled off to reveal newer layers of skin (as with dermabrasion).

Combined, chemical peels and dermabrasion can effectively rid your buttocks area of acne and acne scarring.

Tips to Help Get Rid of Cellulite

No matter how healthy you are, how much you exercise, or how many fruits and vegetables you eat on a daily basis, cellulite can still be a problem you have to deal with.

For many people, cellulite is genetic. In other words, if your mother, grandmother, or sister has it, you likely will too. Naturally, men can have cellulite as well. However, it remains a common issue for women in particular. The good news is, even if you can’t control cellulite quite as well as you can other types of fat buildup, there are still some techniques you can use to reduce it.

Here are some key tips for getting rid of cellulite once and for all. But first let’s talk about a basic question: What is cellulite?

What Is Cellulite?

 

Cellulite is a form of subcutaneous fat. It lies beneath the outermost layer of the skin, the epidermis. Because of this, as fat cells get larger, their uneven structure peaks through, making the skin appear dimpled, bulging, and sometimes, cottage cheese-like. If you’ve noticed this appearance on your thighs, buttocks, or other parts of your body, you have cellulite.

How to Get Rid of Cellulite

Practice a Healthy Lifestyle

 

Generally speaking, diet and exercise aren’t the end-all, be-all to getting rid of cellulite. Again, this is often a hereditary issue that can’t be controlled with lifestyle changes.

However, this doesn’t mean that reducing your overall weight to achieve a healthier BMI is useless. We recommend that all of our patients focus on a nutritious eating plan of vegetables, fruits, lean meats, whole grains, and healthy fats in general. Daily exercise is also recommended, including cardio workouts at least three times a week and weight training one to two times a week.

 

Get Massages

 

For some, massages can be a helpful way to combat cellulite too. This disturbs the honeycomb-like structure of fat that creates the appearance of cellulite and helps even out the surface.

 

Minimally Invasive MedSpa Procedures

 

Several patented procedures performed at DermaClinic can help you reduce cellulite without having to lift a finger.

 

Carboxy Therapy

 

Known colloquially as a CO2lift, Carboxy Therapy targets cellulite as well as stretch marks. It promotes the breakdown of fatty deposits in the skin by the injection of extremely small amounts of carbon dioxide. This reduces fat as well as stimulates collagen to provide a smoother, softer skin surface.

 

VelaShape 111

 

VelaShape 111 is an FDA-cleared device that targets underlying deposits of dimpled fat. The procedure involves the use of several key treatments, including bi-polar radio frequency, vacuum technology, massage rollers, and mechanical tissue manipulation.
