SCLEROTHERAPY A sclerosing solution is injected with a very fine needle directly into the network of blood vessel. The solution irritates the walls of the blood vessels causing them to swell and stick together thereby causing disappearance of the blood vessels. Over a period of weeks, the vessels fade and disappear. The treated areas will be wrapped by a special bandage for four weeks to help seal the veins faster. Sclerotherapy works equally well on all skin types and colors. After several treatments, most patients can expect a 50 to 90 percent improvement.
LASER THERAPY OF SPIDER VEINS For those network veins that are smaller (.2mm to .9mm.) disappearance of
the vessels are best achieved with laser therapy using the Verapulse C Aesthetic
Laser HELP G. The laser light is applied to the skin using a cold tip. The laser
light targets the blood inside the blood vessels producing heat energy which
seals off the blood vessels by coagulating the blood inside. Eventually, the
would fade and disappear. Several treatments may be required depending on your
skin type and location of the treated areas.
LASER TREATMENT FOR PIGMENTED LESIONS Country Hills Laser Center uses the Verapulse C Aesthetic Laser to remove
age spots, sun spots and superficial pigmented areas. The laser light targets
the black pigment in the skin, destroying the cells responsible for the pigment
change. The number of treatments may vary depending on the type of pigmented
spots. The Verapulse Laser has a Q-switched Nd:YAG and Alexandrite lasers which
are effective in removing pigmented spots.
COLLAGEN REPLACEMENT TREATMENT Collagen is part of the natural support structure of your skin. Wrinkles
appear when the collagen just below the skin thins. This loss is mostly a factor
of aging, but exposure, pollution, health, heredity and lifestyle also play
roles. Without enough collagen, wrinkles and lines start to form wherever the
skin moves. There is a safe effective way to erase those fine lines and wrinkles
in a non-surgical way. Zyderm and/or Zyplast collagen is used to soften and
erase wrinkles in about 30 minutes or less. Collagen treatments last from 3 to 6
months. Like your own collagen, your body eventually absorbs this collagen so
ongoing treatments are necessary to maintain results. If you stop your
treatments, the new collagen is reabsorbed and your skin gradually returns to
its natural contours. Ask us if collagen replacement is for you. Dr. Yatar and
his staff will be happy to customize a treatment plan to meet your individual
needs. Prices vary with the amount of collagen used. Starting is easy. Before
treatment, a skin test will be performed on your forearm to check for any
sensitivity to the product. You will asked to watch this area carefully over a
2-week period. Another skin test will be performed after that time. If you show
no reaction to the test, we can proceed with the treatment.
MICRODERMABRASION We also offer microdermabrasion to help men and women who have acne
scarring, sun damaged skin, age spots, freckles, stretch marks, fine lines,
large pores and scars. Unlike laser skin resurfacing which leaves the skin
pinkish red for months, microdermabrasion leaves the skin pink for a few hours.
It is a safe and inexpensive non-surgical procedure. There is an improvement in
the skin texture and appearance. No anesthesia is required.
