Leg and Facial Spider Veins
Lakeview Dermatology Board Certified Dermatologists have successfully treated numerous patients with leg spider veins and facial spider veins in our dermatology clinics in Chicago, Park Ridge, Orland Park, and Palos Heights. At Lakeview Dermatology, we treat Spider Veins only, using injections of sclerosing solutions, which have remained the gold standard of treatment for leg spider veins. Our dermatologists use Diolite which is very effective in the treatment of facial spider veins, dilated blood vessels (telangiectasias), cherry angiomas, freckles, lentigo, liver spots, and some other small brown growths. Milia (tiny white cysts) can also be treated by modifying the technique.
In some patients with acne scars and acne still very active, we may chose to start the treatment with the Smoothbeam Laser. The smoothbeam causes a thermal injury to the oil glands and as such, the flow of oil is diminished. As a direct consequence, the acne activity also diminishes.
CoolSculpting by Zeltiq is a device that removes unwanted body fat nonsurgically, noninvasively, by using low temperature in localized areas ("Cryolipolysis") It is safe and effective It is FDA approved. It is minimally painful, although it leaves some temporary numbness. It works by lowering the temperature of the fat cells and the overlying skin,but carefully avoiding frostbite (the cooling necessary to damage the fat cells is much less than that which causes frostbite) Since fat cells are more sensitive to cooling than skin cells, this procedure damages the fat cells but leaves the skin cells intact.
Eyes by Thermage has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of wrinkles of the upper and lower lids. Eyes by Thermage reduces hooding of the upper lids and produces a tighter, smoother look of the upper and lower lids. It can improve the dark under eye circles. The same monopolar radio frequency current is used as in the treatment of the cheeks and jowls to heat the collagen. A plastic shield protects the eye. Sometimes the improvement is immediately noticeable but often it takes up to 6 months to see the optimum benefit. With the new protocol, 95% of patients are pleased with the results.
