Pacific Dermatology & Cosmetic Center in the News
A Month Devoted To Red
As we at Pacific Dermatology & Cosmetic Center in Seattle say good-bye to a month that was entirely covered in white, we are thankful to welcome February; which will be marked by the red of Valentines Day! We all swoon at the sight of a red heart box of chocolates, however finding areas of red on our skin does not cause you any delight at all!
Red areas on your face or other areas of your body are likely due to blood vessels that have become dilated. There are several names for this problem based on the size and severity of the vessels. A mild form is referred to, as flushing that is very common amongst people prone to rosacea. As the vessels dilate more, telangectasias, or visible veins appear on the face, most commonly around the nose and cheeks. A grouping of these vessels is known as a cherry angioma. While these conditions are all benign, they can still be quite bothersome aesthetically speaking. Here at Pacific Dermatology and Cosmetic Center, we are proud to announce the arrival of our upgraded state of the art Vbeam Perfecta Laser, the leading vascular laser in the industry. Call our office today for your cosmetic consultation with one of our providers to determine if Vbeam Perfecta is the right tool to help erase your red spots. Winter is the perfect time to have the Vbeam treatment done because we do not want you in the sun for two weeks before and after the treatment.
Speaking of treating veins during the winter, this is also the ideal time for sclerotherapy for unwanted leg veins. At PDCC we are currently using hypertonic saline and/or polidocanol to inject spider veins with wonderful results. Start your treatments now and say good-bye to your spider veins and hello to shorts and skirts by summertime.
Lips, Lashes, Legs…and then some
No Valentine season could sneak by without mention of perfecting your pucker! Dr. Reichel and Dr. Jacobson are experts in fillers for the lips. While you are in, ask about Latisse to add darker, longer, thicker eyelashes to your arsenal as well. And why not take advantage of the high speed LightSheer DUET for laser hair removal and get those silky, smooth legs you’ve always wanted or any unwanted hair you want to see disappear!
