Skin imperfections could make it difficult to feel as confident as you should. Laser pixel treatments can help you decrease the signs of some of these conditions and help you look and feel your best. Keep reading to learn more about what laser pixel can do for you:
Get Rid of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Do not let fine lines and wrinkles prematurely age you when you can get a laser pixel treatment and smooth out your skin. The laser can actually be used to resurface the skin and get rid of these imperfections. After your treatment, you will notice smoother, younger-looking skin. Laser pixel typically works with just 3-5 treatments and provides continued improvement for many months after the treatment is complete.
Decrease the Appearance of Acne, Scars, and Stretch Marks
Acne, scars, or stretch marks on the skin could make you feel self-conscious about showing off these areas of your body. Whether you have any of these imperfections on your face, your neck, your chest, your back, or your hands, laser pixel treatments can help you improve the way they look.
Even Out Skin Discolorations
Sunspots, dark circles, and even freckles can cause discolorations on the face. Luckily, the laser pixel treatment can be used to even out the skin tone, smooth out the texture, and get rid of redness or other discoloration. After the treatments are complete, you can once again enjoy the look of beautiful, even skin.
Come to Varicose Solutions in Chicago to experience the benefits of laser pixel treatments for yourself.

Did you know that roughly 50% of people in the U.S. over the age of 50 are affected by varicose veins? Varicose veins develop when the valves that prevent blood from flowing backwards become weak or damaged. If a valve allows blood to flow in the wrong direction, the blood can pool and enlarge the vein in question, creating a varicose vein. Venous valves tend to weaken with age, which is why varicose veins become more common as you get older. Genetics, hormonal changes, weight, and inactivity can also affect your risk of developing varicose veins. Take a look at this infographic from Varicose Solutions, your Chicago vein clinic, to learn more about what causes varicose veins and how they can be treated with endovenous laser therapy and sclerotherapy. Please share with your friends and family!

Disorders of the veins and skin can cause cosmetic concerns and may negatively affect your health. Venous diseases affect about 15% of the adult population, while skin disorders affect up to 85% of Americans at some point in their lives. Talk to your doctor if you are concerned about venous or skin disorders for treatment options that can improve your health, comfort, and confidence in your appearance.
Varicose veins are large, bulging, twisted veins that form on the legs. These veins are usually dark purple or blue in color. Varicose veins occur when the one-way valves in the veins weaken, causing blood to collect inside the vein rather than return to the heart. Although varicose veins are generally a cosmetic concern, in some cases they can cause aching or burning sensations and swelling in the legs. Treatment for varicose veins includes sclerotherapy and endovenous laser therapy.
Spider veins are much smaller than varicose veins and may appear on the legs, ankles, face, or other parts of the body. They lie close to the surface and are typically blue, purple, or red. Like varicose veins, spider veins are primarily a cosmetic concern but may cause pain or discomfort in some patients. Sclerotherapy is the most common form of treatment for spider veins.
Melanoma is a form of cancer that begins in the cells of the skin. Although melanoma is only responsible for approximately 5% of skin cancer diagnoses, it causes more deaths than other forms of skin cancer. Your risk of melanoma increases with age as well as with increasing time spent in the sun. Treatment for melanoma may include options such as radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and surgery to remove skin lesions in the early stages of the disease.

Botox contains a substance called botulinum toxin type A, which is a substance produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. During treatment with Botox, small amounts of this substance are injected into the muscles beneath the skin of the face, reducing their mobility and smoothing or preventing deep wrinkles caused by facial expressions. Botox treatment typically causes only minor side effects, which include bruising and slight discomfort. More serious side effects are rare, and may include trouble blinking or swallowing. You should avoid touching the treated area after a Botox injection to prevent the spread of the toxin to other areas of the body. In order to ensure Botox is safe for you, talk to your doctor before undergoing treatment. If you have any medical problems that affect your ability to speak, swallow, or breathe, Botox may not be appropriate for you.
