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 are 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.
Our experienced professionals 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.
Dermabrasion and Dermaplaning
Sunlight, exposure to harsh weather and pollution can all zap the skin of its youthful beauty. Dermabrasion and Dermaplaning are used to "refinish" the top layers of the skin with surgical scraping. Dermabrasion is performed using a wire brush or diamond wheel to improve the look of facial scars, remove pre-cancerous growths and smooth facial wrinkles. With dermaplaning, a hand-held instrument is used to exfoliate dead skin cells and fine vellus hair from the face, bringing forth the fresh new skin underneath. Dermabrasion and dermaplaning can both treat small areas of skin or the entire face.
Microneedling is an effective treatment for facial lines and wrinkles, scars including acne scars, and stretch marks. Also called collagen induction therapy, microneedling creates tiny punctures into the deeper layers of skin to increase new collagen production and facilitate the penetration of topical medications. Patients undergo light sedation and the entire procedures takes about half an hour to complete. Safe for skin of any type or color, microneedling is a skin rejuvenation alternative to laser therapy for people with thin skin.
Often the unavoidable result of injury or surgery, scars can negatively affect your appearance with their unsightly look. Scar Revision techniques are used to refine and improve the appearance of many different types of scars, including discoloration, surface irregularities, hypertropic scars, keloid scars and contracture scars. Depending on the type and degree of scarring, scar revision can include simple topical treatments, dermal fillers, dermabrasion, laser treatments, chemical peels and surgical revision with advanced wound closure techniques.
Skin Cancer Removal and Reconstruction
Skin cancer is the most prevalent type of cancer in the United States, according to the American Cancer Society. Our plastic surgeons in Birmingham, Alabama use specialized techniques for Skin Cancer Removal to remove cancerous and other skin lesions while preserving your health and appearance. Excision is a simple surgical process for removing small or contained lesions from the skin. Skin cancer lesions that are large or likely to cause disfigurement may be reconstructed with a local flap or a skin graft.
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. Endovenous Laser Treatment, or 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. EVLT does not leave a scar and usually takes less than an hour.
Cellulaze Cellulite Laser
The Cellulaze laser treatment for cellulite reduction is a longer-lasting, one-time treatment that attacks the very structure of cellulite. This minimally-invasive treatment delivers energy directly underneath the skin, increasing your skin's natural depth for a smoother, healthier look that lasts. Cellulaze™ is ideal for patients who retain the appearance of cellulite despite a healthy diet and exercise. Performed as an in-office procedure with only a local anesthetic, Cellulaze patients see results in just a few weeks, with improvements continuing to appear for a few months.
