Stressed over what to get for mom? How about a gift of derm visits to erase all the stress she’s wearing from being a mom. Dr. Amy Wechsler presents a gift that will make her smile and maybe help fade some of her not so loved, ahem–“badges” of motherhood.
A Non-surgical Spider Vein-ectomy
An effective treatment for spider veins is a procedure called sclerotherapy. A doctor will inject a small volume of solution into the vein (hypertonic saline or sotradechol are most often used) that causes the veins to swell shut. Approximately 95 percent of patients see an improvement after one to three treatments with this procedure.
To Smooth Out A Lifetime of Worry Wrinkles
Retinoids, the only major arch nemeses of wrinkles and aging. Prescription-only derivatives of Vitamin A: tretinoin (brand names: Retin-A, Avita, Renova) and tazarotene (Tazorac, Avage) are FDA-approved, treatments to rub on the skin. It takes a while to begin to see results, but prescription retinoids can renew your skin, and over time smooth out your troublesome wrinkles, and even lighten and improve the texture of your skin.
For The Mom Who Wears Shorts
Laser hair removal is a fast growing trend and with good reason! With laser hair removal you can forget about having to shave ever again. Five to seven treatments (on average) are required to get sexy smooth, followed by a touch up in 6 months to a year.
For The One Who Knows Her Age, And Doesn’t Need The Reminder On Her Forehead
Botox, a muscle halting substance can be used to help avoid lines in the face, by limiting the expressive movements that cause them. By relaxing muscles, Botox can lift the face. The process must be touched up, every four to six months, but for most, its effects start to last longer and longer over time. Also, Hyaluronic acid, a natural component of skin that thins with age, can is used to smooth out lines and folds as well as plump the skin to perfection. Brand names include Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm. Hyaluronic acid fillers last on average four to eight months.
For The Mom Whose Bundle Of Joy Left Her With A Bundle Of Stretch Marks
Babies are amazing, stretch marks? Not so much. Stretch marks have been known to fade or lighten slightly( in some women), but a definitive remedy has not been discovered. A series of laser treatments, as well as a good moisturizing routine, can help with fading.
