Varicose veins are purple, and/or blue veins that twist and turn. They are easily visible through the skin, making them almost impossible to cover up with makeup. They can be painful and cause itching, swelling, discoloration, bleeding and even ulcers (nonhealing wounds).
Emsculpt induces strong muscle contractions that are unachievable through workouts. This is used for butt-lifts and to tone the abs. When a muscle is exposed to intense contractions, it must begin to adapt and reform to the new conditions, thus lifting your butt or toning your abs while melting fat away.
In just 4 sessions of 30-minute treatments, your abs will be toned and slimmed down and your buttocks will be lifted and more perky. With no recovery time and no side effects, you can get right back to all of your normal activities the same day as your treatment.
Peak results are achieved 8 to 12 weeks after treatment.
Sclerotherapy is a treatment widely used to effectively eliminate varicose and spider veins. During this procedure, a sclerotherapy solution will be injected directly into the unwanted vein which irritates the lining of the blood vessel and causes it to collapse, and eventually be reabsorbed by the surrounding tissue. This process forces the body to redirect blood to healthier, more capable veins, causing the unwanted veins to fade away. The sclerotherapy procedure is performed with a fine needle and small amounts of sclerosing solution.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization
Uterine fibroids are benign growths in the uterus (not cancerous) that are extremely common (affect up to 50% of women). Not all fibroids are symptomatic or need to be treated. But in some patients fibroids can be very troublesome causing symptoms of pelvic pain, back pain, bloating and excessive bleeding.
Traditionally fibroid treatment required invasive surgery and anesthesia (myomectomy vs hysterectomy) with a prolonged downtime and painful recovery. But with uterine fibroid embolization all of your fibroids can be treated (without general anesthesia) in an outpatient setting. The noninvasive nature of the procedure means faster recovery and less downtime vs. traditional surgery.
Pelvic Congestion Syndrome
Pelvic congestion syndrome is the equivalent of varicose veins in your pelvis. Veins have valves that help carry blood up towards the heart. When the valves stop working the blood pools in the veins. Pelvic congestion syndrome involves the pooling of blood in dilated veins in the pelvis. This can lead to bulging veins in the region of the vagina/groin and lower abdomen, pain which is worse with standing/sitting and pain on the left side of the pelvis.
Pelvic congestion syndrome is diagnosed with imaging (pelvic ultrasound) and physical examination. You may need a venogram (insertion of a tiny catheter into your pelvic veins with the use of contrast and x-ray imaging) to confirm the diagnosis. The dilated veins can also be treated at the same time as the venogram with embolization (placement of tiny coils to block the problematic leaky veins). The venogram is an outpatient procedure with (without general anesthesia) with a minimal discomfort and a short recovery time.
