Varicose Veins

How long is Varicose Vein Treatment Recovery?

Are your varicose veins bothering you? Varicose veins are usually harmless, but there are times when they can cause pain and discomfort, and treatment may be required. But what are the options available, and how long is varicose vein treatment recovery.

What are varicose veins?
Varicose veins are twisted, enlarged veins that usually occur on the legs, but can affect other parts of the body. They are ordinarily blue or red in color, and are often caused by the malfunction of the valves on the veins.

How long is Varicose Vein Treatment Recovery?
Recovery time after varicose vein treatment depends on the type of procedure performed, common procedures include Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) or Laser Closure and Ambulatory Phlebectomy. Both procedures are done on an outpatient basis and take about 1 hour to complete.

EVLA involves the use of a laser to seal or close off the affected vein. EVLA is a comfortable treatment that results in minimal bruising and scarring, so there is little downtime. Most patients are able to resume normal activities within 5-7 days, but full recovery can take up to 4 weeks (click here to learn more).

Ambulatory Phlebectomy is a procedure that removes large varicose veins near the surface of the skin via microscopic incisions made alongside the diseased vein. There is minimal to no scarring after ambulatory phlebectomy, and patients generally don’t experience any post-procedural discomfort, so they can resume normal activities immediately. However, strenuous activity should be avoided.

How Much Does Mohs Micrographic Surgery Cost?

Although skin cancer is the most common cancer in the world, it can be treated successfully if detected early. Mohs Micrographic surgery is a very effective treatment for this type of cancer, as it has a high cure rate, provides a good cosmetic result, and only leaves a very small scar. But how much does Mohs Micrographic Surgery cost.

What is Mohs Micrographic Surgery?
Mohs Micrographic Surgery or Mohs chemosurgery is a highly specialized procedure that is used to treat skin cancer. It is particularly effective for treating basal cell and squamous cell cancerson areas such as the face and neck, but can also be used on other parts of the body. Mohs micrographic surgery removes the entire skin cancer, and conserves as much healthy tissue as possible.

Mohs chemo surgery is an outpatient procedure that is done under local anesthesia. The surgeon will first excise the tumor and surrounding tissue. The tissue that is removed is examined under a microscope while the patient waits. If skin cancer cells are still present, the excision process is repeated until all the cancer cells are gone.

How much does Mohs Micrographic Surgery Cost
The cost for Mohs chemosurgery ranges from $1,000 – $2,000, but patients may pay substantially more depending on where the surgery is performed, and the region of the country.

The cost of Mohs micrographic surgery isalso influenced by the size and location of the tumor, as well as the amount of tissue layer that the surgeon has to remove. Mohs chemosurgery is usually covered by insurance, but patients will have to pay out-of-pocket expenses fordoctors’ visits and lab costs.

rejuvenate aging skin

How Does BBL Broad Band Light Work?

If age and sun damage has robbed your skin of its youthful luster, BBL Broad Band Light can help you turn back time. When it comes to treating skin issues such as sun spots, age spots, wrinkles, and facial veins, BBL sets the standard. But how does BBL Broad Band Light work.

What is BBL Broad Band Light?
BBL is a photo rejuvenation treatment that uses pulses of light to reduce the excess pigment in the skin that causes pigmented lesions. It also gets rid of the fine vessels that cause the redness in vascular lesions.

BBL is commonly used on the face, neck, chest, and back of the hands, which are the areas that are often exposed to the damaging UV rays of the sun.

How does BBL Work?
BBL delivers intense pulsed energy that heats the upper layer of the skin, and is then absorbed by the areas being targeted. This sets the skin’s regenerative process in motion, resulting in the growth of new collagen. Collagen increases the thickness and firmness of the skin. BBL leaves the skin clearer, smoother, and more youthful.

In addition, studies carried out confirm that BBL actually restores the skin cells to a youthful state, because it fixes the DNA damage that takes place in the cells due to aging and environmental factors. BBL renews the genes and genetic code within the cells, causing them to perform like younger cells.

There is minimal discomfort with BBL and no downtime is required, so patients can return to their normal routine immediately.
