Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive treatment that treats spider veins. It involves the injection of a solution right into the affected veins, causing them to shrink and eventually disappear. It is also known to reduce some of the symptoms associated with spider veins, such as aching or night cramps. Treatment can range between 30 and 45 minutes and costs between $300 and $450—very little downtime. You’re able to return to daily activities immediately in most cases. Those who are unable to take time out from their busy schedules to travel to a medical center for treatment can still benefit from spider vein treatments that can be done in our convenient location at Sherisse Hill Aesthetic Derm in Issaquah WA.
When it is injected into a muscle, Botox stops the nerve impulse from reaching the muscle, thus preventing it from contracting as strongly. This causes the muscle to weaken and relax, allowing the overlying skin to soften and causing wrinkles in the area to disappear. Botox has been in use for many years and is approved by the FDA for the treatment of areas such as the glabellar wrinkles (frown lines), crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles.
Dysport is an injection that decreases muscle movement in a targeted area, softening the look of vertical wrinkles that are common in the forehead and between the eyebrows. Both Botox and Dysport are effective in giving a more youthful look and minimizing facial wrinkles. Botox is best for wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, and cheeks, while Dysport is best for lines between the eyebrows.
Xeomin is a special botulinum formulation that’s specifically for the treatment of glabellar lines. These are the frown lines that form between the eyebrows. Xeomin can treat moderate to severe lines, softening their appearance or even removing them altogether. After a Xeomin treatment, people typically start to see results within a week, but it can take up to a month to see the full effects. For most people, Xeomin lasts around three months.
