Renew and Rejuvenate Your Skin for Spring!
When was the last time you felt truly carefree in a swimsuit?
Life on the Florida Coast is nothing short of invigorating. The ocean is our backdrop and we have access to some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. All the time we spend under the sun means we have many opportunities to bare our skin. Now that spring and summer are just around the corner, you may be thinking of all the maintenance that comes with readying your beach bod.
Let’s face it, none of us want to hit the beach without our skin looking its best. Unsightly hair and varicose veins can make the prospect of sitting poolside with friends feel like a nightmare. Furthermore, the prospect of having to shave, wax, and cover problem areas can take all the joy out of your spring and summer fun in the sun.
Just in time for spring, we want you to know that you have nothing to fear! You can enjoy your time on the Florida Coast and feel beautiful doing it. Enjoy your time under the sun with laser hair removal and leg vein treatments. Feel beautiful, confident, and years younger. We’ll show you how:
Laser Hair Removal
Blue Ocean Dermatology has new lower prices on laser hair removal! Along with Botox, this is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures both in our offices in Port Orange, Winter Park, Okeechobee, and in the country.
Tired of shaving and waxing? Laser hair removal can be done in almost any area where you grow unwanted hair, including the legs, armpits, upper lip, or bikini line. The procedure takes no more than an hour and can be completed in a single visit to your dermatologist.
What to Expect
Your dermatologist will direct a focused laser light at the hair follicles in your problem area. The heat created in the follicle will destroy the hair, causing it to shed and restricting regrowth. After your first visit, it can take several days for all of the hair in the treated area to shed. For long-term hair removal, repeat treatments will be necessary.
This is a safe and relatively painless procedure, but side effects can include skin irritation, redness, and swelling. Multiple treatments (usually 6 to 8) will be necessary to reduce the production of hair significantly. Laser hair removal can keep your skin smooth and beautiful for 6 to 12 months without the effort and time associated with daily shaving.
Bare you summer beach body with comfort and confidence!
Leg Vein Treatment
Sclerotherapy is the process of reducing and eliminating the appearance of varicose veins and spider veins.
Varicose and spider veins are more common in women and typically appear with age. Varicose veins appear as bulging blue veins, typically on the legs. Spider veins are smaller and not raised. They are usually red and have a web-like appearance. Both conditions occur when valves lose their functioning and veins become enlarged with accumulated blood. These conditions come without symptoms and do not pose a health risk, but their appearance can be a source of embarrassment for patients.
What to Expect
Fortunately, your dermatologist can quickly and easily perform sclerotherapy in a single office visit. The procedure involves the injection of a salt solution into the problematic vein that will cause the vein to collapse, rerouting blood through healthier veins.
After your treatment, the appearance of the veins will diminish in a few days to months and the treatment is up to 80% effective at permanently eliminating the appearance of varicose and spider veins.
Let your legs see the light!
Skin always looks younger and more luminous when it’s healthy and well cared for. Are you swimsuit ready? In addition to a routine skin check, your dermatologist can recommend cosmetic treatments to eradicate unwanted hair and unsightly veins to get your skin luminous for spring!
