The Skin & Vein Center of the Kansas City area offers a wide range of treatments for aging skin and other cosmetic problems, including creams, injectable therapies, facial peels, cosmetic surgery, and laser treatments. The goal of cosmetic procedures is to reverse the visible signs of aging and to improve distressing skin conditions, such as acne scars, vascular birth marks, skin growths and pre-cancerous conditions. The choice to have a cosmetic procedure deserves careful consideration weighing the relative benefits and potential downsides of each treatment option.
Causes of Skin Aging
Sunlight plays a major role in development of wrinkles, fine lines and creases. Uneven skin tones, freckles, and broken capillaries are also exacerbated by excessive exposure to the sun. Indoor tanning is an especially egregious cause of skin damage, and UVA rays can damage skin up to 15 times faster than natural sunlight. Smoking and genetics can also contribute to the weakening of collagen and facial muscles.
Choosing a Cosmetic Treatment
The first step to determining the best cosmetic procedure for your needs is scheduling an in-depth consultation with a dermatologist. During your consultation, we will discuss your specific concerns and the best cosmetic procedure or product for your needs. We offer several treatments in order to provide a customized treatment plan for each of our customers. Choose from topical creams, Botox, Dysport, fillers, vascular lasers, facial peels, laser resurfacing, tattoo and pigment laser therapy, and varicose vein therapy. Feel free to ask our staff at the Skin & Vein Center any questions about any of our services, and we’ll help determine the best plan of action to address your concerns and treatment goals.
