You may be digging out of the latest snowstorm, but now’s the time to start thinking ahead to warmer weather and getting ready for summer.

You don’t have to dread bathing suit season! If you’re one of the many women (and men) who wouldn’t be caught dead in a bathing suit, there are several procedures to target your trouble areas, boost your confidence, and help you look your best this summer.

RELIEF FROM SPIDER VEINS AND VARICOSE VEINS

If you have spider veins or varicose veins, you know they can get in the way of your enjoyment of life. Aside from being potentially uncomfortable, they can affect your confidence.

Sclerotherapy treatments can improve the appearance of your legs (and take some of the pressure off if they’re feeling tired and heavy). Sclerotherapy is a safe, comfortable procedure that’s considered the gold standard in the treatment of varicose veins. A saline-based solution is carefully injected into the affected vein(s). This solution irritates the vein and it eventually collapses on itself and gets reabsorbed into the surrounding tissue.

It may take a few treatments, scheduled several weeks apart, to see desired results. So if you’re thinking about vein treatments to improve the appearance of your legs in time for bathing suit season, now’s the time to get started.

FIGHT CELLULITE AND TIGHTEN SKIN

If cellulite or wrinkled, sagging skin has you feeling less than confident in a bathing suit, Thermage® can help. This proven, non-invasive treatment uses radio frequency (RF) technology to target your trouble areas. Essentially, Thermage® heats the deep tissue layers of your skin to strengthen existing collagen, and stimulate new collagen growth.

One treatment is all you need, but it can take up to six months to see the full benefits of Thermage®-smoother, tighter looking skin. Click here for before and after photos to see how Thermage® has helped other patients look years younger.

While bathing suit season might be the last thing on your mind, now’s the time to start getting ready. Call us today at 613.706.4178 to book your personal consultation and see how I can help you regain comfort and confidence.

Summer will be here before you know it. I can help you look your best!
