Q. What are spider veins?

Spider veins are tiny blood vessels, that are usually found on the legs. They are about 1-4 mm in size and are pink, red, blue or purple. Spider veins tend to get worse with age, increased weight, prolonged standing and pregnancy. They are more common in women but men get them too.

Q. Are there any side effects associated with Photofacials?

Yes. After each treatment, freckles on the face tend to get very dark. Over the next several days to weeks these dark freckles flake off, leaving a much improved appearance. There may also be some mild pinkness or redness and swelling that resolves within hours to a few days. On a rare occasion, the client may experience a blister.

Q. What can I do to make my eyelashes grow?

There is an FDA approved product called Latisse that has been proven to make your eyelashes grow thicker and fuller. Latisse takes a few months to work because the hairs that are already there need time to be replaced. This is not mascara! Latisse will cause you to grow your own thicker and fuller eyelashes.

Q. What is sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a process used to remove spider veins. In this process, a tiny needle is used to inject a very small amount of liquid into the vein. This liquid, called a sclerosant, causes the veins to collapse and eventually disappear.
