    Sclerotherapy facts by Dr Tess

    By: | Tags: , , , , , , ,

    Eighty million Americans have some kind of venous disorder, and 80% of these are cosmetic.  Although most Americans do not have a major circulatory problem, visible veins give the impression of aging and of poor health. These spider veins are often hereditary, though women are 3x more likely to develop varicose veins than men.  Other factors contributing to the onset of unwanted veins are work related (standing for long periods of time), pregnancy, and trauma (injury) to the immediate area. Sclerotherapy can be used to address these unsightly issues. Surface veins such as spider veins are like […]

    Tips for Preventing Acne by Dr. Tess

    By: | Tags: , , , , , ,

    Keep your face clean Whether or not you have acne, it’s important to wash your face twice daily to remove impurities, dead skin cells, and extra oil from your skin’s surface. Washing more often than twice daily is not necessarily better; it may do more harm than good. Use warm, not hot, water and a mild facial cleanser. Using a harsh soap (like deodorant body soap) can hurt the already inflamed skin and cause more irritation. Moisturize. Many acne products contain ingredients that dry the skin, so always use a moisturizer that minimizes dryness and […]
