Sclerotherapy benefits

Many people, especially women, start to notice veins that are visible on their legs and feet. These veins can have an adverse effect, making some embarrassed to wear their favorite skirts or shorts. Fortunately, spider and varicose veins are curable through sclerotherapy procedure.

Although unsightly veins are genetically acquired and common to women, multiple factors can aggravate varicose and spider veins. Women who are taking contraceptive pills, pregnant, or in the menopausal stage are likely to develop visible veins on their legs. Individuals who work at jobs that demand standing and those who are obese are also more likely to have visible veins. Sclerotherapy is a procedure that gradually eradicates varicose and spider veins. The procedure uses fine needles to inject a specialized salt solution directly into the visible veins. Furthermore, the procedure can be performed in just 30 minutes.

Technology reduces risk in cosmetic surgeries

Cosmetic surgery procedures now employ advanced technology to help get results, a July 13 article of CCTV America reported. Surgery is becoming more appealing for many Americans, since worrisome risks are continuing to decline.

Researchers at the Center of Excellence in Nanomedicine and Engineering in San Diego even discovered a non-surgical procedure to extract unwanted body fats. Director of the center, Adah Almutairi, invented the Nanolipo procedure from the cancer treatments with which they experimented. Unlike traditional liposuction procedure, a solution of gold nanoparticles is intravenously introduced to target a body part. Surgeons then apply heat to help the gold particles to dissolve fat. Once the fat dissolves, doctors extract it from the body. Nanolipo, if approved, has much lower associated risks than liposuction, since nanolipo does not damage nerves and tissues. Almutairi’s group is hopeful that their discovery will become available in the market after three years.

As new cosmetic surgery technology is under development, there are other procedures that can remove unwanted body fats.

Advantages of an arm lift

Some individuals lack confidence due to their sagging arms and choose to have an arm lift to make their arms appear more youthful and firm.

Candidates for arm lifts are occasionally required to undergo liposuction procedure if their upper arm has too much fat on it. Plastic surgeons then achieve youthful and firm skin after they extract unwanted skin through incisions and tighten the skin with sutures. Patients who undergo an arm lift procedure should expect toned arms and firmer skin around the arms. Aging individuals, or any person who has lost a substantial amount of weight, are often candidates for arm lift procedures. Surgeons also suggest arm lifts for individuals who cannot achieve the arm firmness they desire through exercise.
