Sclerotherapy

A medical procedure used to treat varicose veins and “spider veins.”

During sclerotherapy, the physician injects a solution directly into the affected vein. The solution irritates the lining of the vessel, causing it to swell and stick together. Over time, the vessel turns into harmless scar tissue that fades from view. Sclerotherapy is a well-proven procedure and has been used for many years.

Advanced Sclerotherapy involves newer techniques and medicines to achieve greater improvement in a safer and more tolerable way.

Sclerotherapy Edmonton

The arrival of warmer weather in Edmonton brings with it longer days, bare legs and an extra pep in your step. All year, we anticipate the warmer temperatures and the longer days, not to mention that cute wardrobe that naturally goes along with the change in season.

However, for countless men and women, the warmer weather brings about a feeling of dread rather than excitement. Putting on a sexy summer dress or a trendy pair of shorts can mean embarrassment due to the web of spider veins covering their legs.

By the time we hit middle age, nearly half of all women and a quarter of men will have experienced telangiectasia, also known as spider or thread veins, These odds continue to rise with each passing decade.

Spider & Varicose Vein Treatment

Fortunately, at the Rao Dermatology clinic treating these pesky veins is straightforward thanks to our proven Sclerotherapy procedure that is used to treat varicose veins and spider veins.

The Sclerotherapy procedure involves using a solution that is injected into the problematic vein – causing it to collapse and close up. This forces blood that was previously pooling in the vein to find a more efficient route to the heart, thereby improving blood circulation throughout the body. The unwanted vessel then starts to shrink immediately, and slowly dissolve over a period of weeks as the body naturally absorbs the treated vein.

Eyelid Surgery

 Do you look tired and aged ?

As we get older, the eyelid skin can become heavy and protrude over our eyelashes. This often leads to a sad and fatigued appearance.

Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, can essentially roll back the years.  It can address sagging skin, smooth wrinkles, reduce puffiness, and correct other signs of aging around the upper and lower eyelids.  This procedure utilizes laser technology to remove the excess skin and reshape the eyelid to give you an improved appearance.

This surgery is the ultimate in eye rejuvenation, giving a refreshed more youthful appearance to the eyes.

Our eyes tell more about us than what we say. The can often betray us, reflecting our true emotions and what we are feeling. Unfortunately, they can also betray our age.

The Telltale Of Aging Around Our Eyes

There are four telltale signs of aging that occurs around the eyes. First is the droopy, sagging brow that can make our eyes look smaller and squintier. Second are the clusters of tiny wrinkles and fine lines that form around the outer corners of the eyes called crows feet. Third are the bags that occur under our eyes, which can be due to fat pockets or hollowing due to collagen breakdown. Finally, dark circles under our eyes make us appear fatigued and overworked.

What is Blepharoplasty or Eyelid Lift Surgery?

Also known as eyelid surgery or eyelid lift, Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that removes or tightens sagging skin around the eyes, creating a smoother, more taut appearance. In addition to removing extra skin, this procedure often involves the removal of fat pockets that make eyes look puffy.

The Best Candidates For Eyelid Surgery

Typically the best candidate for upper eyelid lift surgery are men and women age 35+ who are noticing puffy and sagging upper eyelids. We invite you to schedule a free consultation with us to discover if this procedure is right for you.

Additional Treatments To Consider

Although eyelid lift surgery is often performed as a single procedure, a browlift or skin resurfacing performed at the same time may give superior results. Blepharoplasty does not treat dark circles, fine lines, and wrinkles around the eyes, however, by adding a Botox™ treatment to the eyelid lift surgery, many of the lines and wrinkles around the eyes can be softened or eliminated.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Is Liposuction right for me?

If you’re in good health and believe you can benefit from liposuction, then you are likely an ideal candidate. It is imperative however, to be able to manage your expectations. The procedure has been proven very successful and has provided significant improvements. However, it is not a quick fix for much larger health issues.

Abdominal Liposuction vs. Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and sagging skin. On the other hand, if you solely have fat excess with minimal skin laxity you are within the realm of liposuction.  Additionally, liposuction is a safer procedure, which has made it the more favourable and common option for fat removal.
