3 minimally invasive procedures to get you ready for summer
Not all of us are ready to bare it all when summer rolls around. In fact, a 2015 survey by Refinery29 found that 80 percent of young women avoid certain activities because they feel self-conscious, reportedly shying away from the beach more than anything else.
To help you feel less uneasy about exposing some skin this summer, consider one of these three minimally invasive procedures:
1. Laser hair removal
Unwanted hair can be a concern year-round, but it most certainly peaks in summer when you're more likely to expose your legs and bikini line. Instead of shaving all summer and potentially irritating your skin and causing unsightly razor bumps, try a treatment like laser hair removal.
Skin & Cosmetic Solutions uses the GentleMax Pro, which is suitable for all skin tones and hair types. Applying a delicate beam of light to the desire area, this treatment uses heat to destroy the hair follicle. To eliminate hair in each of its three cycles of growth, patients typically undergo six to eight treatments for optimal effectiveness.
2. Spider veins treatment
Spider veins are another source of summer shyness and they affect a large percentage of men and women. Luckily, with laser treatment, these clustered, reddish-purple veins can stop holding you back from some fun in the sun.
At Skin & Cosmetic Solutions, we use sclerotherapy to target spider veins. After injecting a sotradecol solution into the problem area, veins being to disappear within three to six weeks.
Cellulite is a common summer bummer, and while it has been deemed untreatable in the past, there is a new procedure will impressive results. Endermologie uses motorized rollers and suction to redistribute the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite. For full effectiveness, patients usually undergo one or two treatments a week for fourteen 45-minute sessions.
