Lovely Legs for Summer 17

As seen in Winston-Salem Monthly, June 2017

Dear Dr.Anne,

I don't have gorgeous Legs Like Carrie but have felt confident enough to enjoy wearing shorts and short skirts in the summer. Lately, I've seen freckles, old scars from shaving, and bursts of veins all over my 1egs. What can you recommend for getting my Legs ready for summer?

Dear Amanda,

Every year around this time when we bring out the shorts and skirts, we have that "Home Alone" moment. Aaaaahhhhh!

Brown spots, broken capillaries, fat pockets, and hairy legs; where did they all come from? Here at Carolina Laser and Cosmetic Center, we offer a
wide variety of lasers, injections, and creams to help you.

We use the very best, high tech lasers for hair reduction to make vour leas silky smooth. We use lasers and/or Broad Band Light to effectively treat those pesky age spots. Used together with topical creams, we can effectively reduce and sometimes completely  eliminate the appearance of age spots.

Leg veins have a tough job, Literally working constantly against gravity. The valves that control the proper flow of blood can weaken and become incompetent as we age. There are several types of these veins: varicose, reticular, and spider veins. Reticular  veins, also known as feeder veins, may branch into spider veins. Spider veins or telangiectasias are smaller than reticular veins, look like red or blue spiderwebs on the skin's surface and don't bulge or cause discomfort like varicose veins, but they sure are unpleasant to the eye. Gender, body weight, time spent on our feet, and heredity above all, play a role in our getting these veins.

Treatment for these veins is safe and can be either nonr minimally invasive, depending on the type of vein. I will guide you toward the most effective; non-surgical method for removal. Sclerotherapy or injection therapy in simplest terms is the closing of the  vein by injecting a solution to irritate the walls of the vein. The vein will collapse and fade from sight. Laser Vein Treatment works by delivering pulses of light energy into the vein, causing the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later reabsorbed by your body.

So let's get started! I can help you achieve the lovely legs for summer you're wanting. Call my office today to schedule your own personal consultation. I look forward to meeting you soon!
