    Conquering Your Spider Veins

    Last updated 3 days ago

    Spider veins may not be harmful to your health, but they can impact your confidence. The good news is that sclerotherapy can quickly eliminate your unwanted spider veins. This video explains spider vein treatment.

    Spider veins lie close to the surface of the skin, making them highly noticeable. However, with a single injection of a specially formulated solution, a sclerotherapy practitioner can rapidly remove these purplish veins. In many cases, spider vein treatment causes no complications, though some sclerotherapy recipients may have minor discomfort or tenderness at the treatment site.

    Common Causes of Facial Redness

    Last updated 5 days ago

    Are you frustrated with your chronically flushed face? Facial redness can occur for many reasons, making it a common skincare issue. The varying causes of this problem demand individualized treatment, though, so seeking the help of a professional skincare expert is key. Trying to self-diagnose and treat your facial redness may only aggravate the problem. With the help of a skincare specialist, you can quickly find out what is triggering your redness and how best to address it.

    Product Inflammation
    Consider the number of products you apply to your face each day. Items such as cleanser, toner, sunscreen, moisturizer, foundation, and powder can contain dozens of different ingredients, any of which may prove irritating to your skin. This irritation can lead to chronic facial redness, as well as itchiness and even swelling. Eliminating the inflammatory product can quickly ease your symptoms, but talking to a skincare expert about specially formulated products for sensitive skin can also prevent future issues.

    Irritated Pores
    Do you suffer from both facial redness and painful pustules? If so, you might be experiencing adult acne. Some people consider acne solely a concern for teenagers, yet due to genetics, stress, and lifestyle factors, many individuals must continue to battle this problem well into adulthood. If you suspect that you have adult acne, talk to an acne treatment specialist. Many over-the-counter products address only teenage skin issues, but a trained aesthetician can help you find the products you need to successfully calm your skin.    

    Rosacea is another common cause of facial redness. In many cases, this skin condition is mistaken for adult acne, as they both can produce tender pustules. However, rosacea typically demands treatment measures that differ from those used to manage acne, though healthy lifestyle habits may improve both conditions. To ensure that you get care targeted to your specific skincare needs, talk to an expert who can differentiate between adult acne and rosacea and prescribe the appropriate treatment.

    Aurora Medical Spa can help you enjoy beautiful skin that is free of embarrassing facial redness. To begin on the path to having clear and healthy skin, call our West County office today at (314) 315-4574. With an initial consultation, our skincare experts can quickly start you on an effective treatment regimen.

    What Causes Facial Hair in Women and What You Can Do about It

    Last updated 12 days ago

    Women might be used to coping with and managing hair growth on their legs, underarms, and even abdomen. However, many women might find it alarming to see thick or dark hair growth on their face. Laser hair removal is often an ideal way to address instances of unwanted and noticeable facial hair. Continue reading to find out more about what causes facial hair growth in women and what can be done to eliminate it.

    Hormonal Imbalances
    The excessive production of one hormone or the lack of another can quickly lead to facial hair growth. In particular, too much testosterone can make it difficult for some women to avoid the growth of facial hair. In many cases, this imbalance of hormones is due to glandular dysfunction that a proper diagnosis and treatment may be able to correct. Eliminating the unwanted hair using laser hair removal and then treating the glandular dysfunction may stop the recurrence of facial hair growth.

    If a physician determines that a patient does not seem to have any medical issues that could be contributing to her hair growth, she may need to look to her own family for answers as to why she has facial hair. DNA passed down from one generation to the next may make the likelihood of facial hair high among some women. Heredity can be a difficult hurdle to overcome, but laser hair removal is often the solution for women with genes that cause excessive hair growth.

    Aging Process
    For some women, facial hair simply begins to grow as part of the aging process. Women affected by facial hair growth in their golden years may find relief and regain self-confidence after undergoing laser hair removal to get rid of their new hair growth.

    See for yourself how laser hair removal can enhance your appearance and self-confidence by scheduling a consultation at a med spa. Aurora Medical Spa provides this safe and effective procedure for both men and women. To find out more about how laser hair removal can help you, call (314) 315-4574 today.
