Cellulaze Cellulite Laser
The Cellulaze laser treatment for cellulite reduction is a longer-lasting, one-time treatment that attacks the very structure of cellulite. Cellulaze is a minimally-invasive treatment that delivers energy directly underneath the skin, increasing your skin's natural depth for a smoother, healthier look that lasts.
Cellulaze™ is ideal for treating patients who retain the appearance of cellulite despite a healthy diet and exercise. Laser cellulite reduction is performed as an in-office procedure with only a local anesthetic. Patients see results in just a few weeks, with improvements continuing to appear for a few months after the procedure.
Sclerotherapy Spider Vein Treatment
Unsightly spider veins are a common cosmetic problem experienced by at least half of adult females. Sclerotherapy is a safe and effective procedure in which a series of tiny injections is administered to remove unwanted spider veins from the legs and any other areas of the body on which they appear. Eliminating spider veins can dramatically improve your appearance and give the skin a more healthy and youthful look.
Depending on the location and other characteristics of your spider veins, the experienced professionals at our Birmingham, Alabama cosmetic center may recommend sclerotherapy, Laser Vein Therapy or a combination of both. Laser vein removal may be the most effective method for treating smaller spider veins, such as those that appear on the face, while larger spider veins are usually treated with sclerotherapy.
EVLT Varicose Vein Laser
Millions of men and women suffer from varicose veins — the bulging, often discolored cords that usually appear on the back of the calves or the inside part of the legs. Varicose veins are not only unsightly, but can also be very painful and a serious health concern. Now there is an innovative, minimally-invasive therapy called Endovenous Laser Treatment, or EVLT, that is FDA-approved and fast becoming the best treatment available for varicose veins.
EVLT® eliminates varicose veins with a thin laser fiber that is inserted into the vein. The laser energy seals the varicose vein and allows it to be absorbed by the body, while blood flow is sustained by healthy veins. Laser varicose vein therapy does not leave a scar and usually takes less than an hour.
Sunlight, exposure to harsh weather and pollution can all really zap the skin of its youthful beauty. Dermabrasion is a safe, proven way to revitalize dull, blotchy skin by removing acne scars, age spots, blemishes and other imperfections.
During dermabrasion, a wire brush with an oscillating handle is used to gently remove dry, aged outer layers of skin, revealing the smooth, younger-looking skin underneath. Although the treated area will be swollen, tingly and/or red after dermabrasion, side effects usually subside within a few days.
Medical needling treats lines, wrinkles, scars and stretch marks by creating tiny punctures into the deep layers of skin to increase the production of new collagen. This skin rejuvenation technique causes little damage to the epidermis, or outer layer of skin, and healing occurs very rapidly. Medical Needling, or Collagen Induction Therapy, patients undergo light sedation and the entire procedures takes about half an hour to complete.
Many different types of scars can be treated with Scar Revision techniques to refine and improve their appearance so that they are more consistent with the tone and texture of your surrounding skin. Topical treatments, injectable dermal fillers, surface techniques and surgery are options for patients who are seeking to diminish scarring on any area of the body. Discoloration, surface irregularities, hypertropic scars, keloid scars and contracture scars can all be treated with scar revision.
Skin Cancer Removal and Reconstruction
The development of a new mole or changes in an existing mole may be a sign of skin cancer. Some skin cancers only require freezing, shaving or burning of the remaining cancer, while more aggressive tumors may need to be surgically removed. Skin cancer is the most prevalent type of cancer in the U.S., according to the American Cancer Society.
