If your face is beginning to look like a road map, don’t worry. At some point, you may notice tiny red spider veins criss-crossing your cheeks and nose, giving you a ruddy look. These lines are simply small broken veins that are pretty common and tend to return.
We have two treatments that show terrific results in reducing the presence of these veins, without any peeling or sloughing. Both Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and the Diolite laser enhance and rejuvenate skin. You’ll see fewer lines and redness, and your skin will appear more youthful.
Here is what our treatments can do for you:
IPL: Intense Pulsed Light rejuvenation can help to restore a healthy-looking and vibrant appearance. By delivering broadband light through the skin, the laser helps to decrease redness, pigmentation, lines and pore size. After treatment, the overall texture and tone of your skin will be improved. IPL can be used on your neck, chest, hands and legs, as well as the face, where broken veins are most typical.
Also known as a “photofacial,” the noninvasive treatment will not damage the surface of your skin. The light is directed to the deeper parts of the skin (dermis); the outside layer (epidermis) is untouched.
In addition to working well on facial spider veins, IPL photorejuvenation improves imperfections such as rosacea, fine wrinkles, sun and age spots.
Diolite: Diolite is a gentle laser that pinpoints the skin’s target area with extreme precision. It is an extremely effective treatment for eradicating superficial facial spider veins. Diolite helps to erase vascular and pigmented imperfections while leaving your surrounding tissue untouched. Older lasers could cause pain, blistering, oozing and crusting, but Diolite produces the same results without these side effects. After treatment, your skin will look youthful and refreshed.
Diolite can also help to minimize cherry angiomas, which are raised red mole-like lesions. In addition, it works on small brown spots such as freckles, sun spots and pigmented keratoses. These may be found anywhere on the body.

One of the most popular anti-aging treatments in use today, the Thermage CPT thermal lift will transform skin all over your body. It is particularly effective and safe for the eye area, tightening loose skin on the lids and under the eye, reducing “hooding” and toning and softening fine lines and crow’s feet.
Thermage CPT also improves skin on your abdomen, arms, legs and even your sagging buttocks. It’s also used to redefine facial contour and reduce excess wrinkling on the hands. One of the most effective lift treatments for a multitude of concerns, it yields long-lasting dramatic results without incisions and recuperation.
While you’ll see initial results within a few weeks, long-term tightening, smoothing and improved tone and texture occur over time, which is why winter is an optimal time for the treatment. You’ll have plenty of time for the full effects before your short skirts and bathing suits come out of hibernation. Studies show that the results can last from several months to several years, depending upon the individual aging process.
So, there is no time like the present, particularly when it comes to Thermage CPT. Call my office today to schedule a complimentary consultation and learn more about how to stay ahead and stay beautiful.

About 85 percent of women complain of cellulite, and many of them say that diet and exercise don’t help very much to reduce the dimpling and rippling. The Cellulaze laser treatment is a proven method for reducing the lumps and bumps in all areas of your body. With just one treatment, you’ll notice an improvement in the smoothness of your skin.
Cellulaze targets the cellulite right where it lives, under the skin. Unlike temporary procedures or products that treat the appearance of cellulite, the Cellulaze laser is the first and best method for directly attacking fat deposits for long-lasting results. There are countless treatments that claim to get rid of the problem–massage, external energy devises, creams and lotions–but these treat cellulite superficially by working at the skin’s surface. Backed by many years of clinical research, Cellulaze delivers a proven longer-lasting result from just one simple treatment.
After the laser procedure, the cellulite in your body will continue to diminish for 3 to 12 months, so by summer, you’ll be well on your way to smoother skin on your hips, thighs, abdomen, buttocks and arms. The lumpy pockets of fat and “cottage cheese” depressions on your skin will be minimized. You’ll also notice more elastic and supple skin.
So, there is no time like the present, particularly when it comes to Cellulaze. Call my office today to schedule a complimentary consultation and learn more about how to smooth and tighten skin, safely and naturally.

We’re happy to offer the second of Restylane’s new generation of dermal fillers for your mouth area–Restylane Defyne. Specifically formulated to allow for natural movement and flexibility, both fillers minimize the lines in the lower half of your face without affecting your ability to smile, frown or even pucker up.
Many of you worry that while fillers help restore a youthful appearance, they will leave you looking stiff. With the products that we choose to use, and with our careful less-is-more approach to cosmetic treatments, you can rely on changes that are subtle and natural.
Last week, we talked about the first new filler, Restylane Refyne, which helps to soften moderate “laugh lines,” the wrinkles that run from the sides of your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that extend from the corner of your mouth toward your chin (marionette lines) which can age your overall appearance.
For deeper, more pronounced folds and wrinkles, we offer Restylane Defyne,
Like Restylane Refyne, it is made with a special technology that offers maximum flexibility and movement. But it provides more support, which is needed to help correct deep facial wrinkles and folds. The hyaluronic acid-based product is natural, safe and effective. Introduced in Europe eight years ago, it has a proven safety profile in more than one million treatments worldwide. And, your natural-looking results may last for up to 12 months.
Restylane Defyne could be a smart treatment for you. Be sure to call our office to schedule a complimentary consultation, and we’ll talk about your options.
See you soon.
