Sclerotherapy benefits

Many people, especially women, start to notice veins that are visible on their legs and feet. These veins can have an adverse effect, making some embarrassed to wear their favorite skirts or shorts. Fortunately, spider and varicose veins are curable through sclerotherapy procedure.

Although unsightly veins are genetically acquired and common to women, multiple factors can aggravate varicose and spider veins. Women who are taking contraceptive pills, pregnant, or in the menopausal stage are likely to develop visible veins on their legs. Individuals who work at jobs that demand standing and those who are obese are also more likely to have visible veins. Sclerotherapy is a procedure that gradually eradicates varicose and spider veins. The procedure uses fine needles to inject a specialized salt solution directly into the visible veins. Furthermore, the procedure can be performed in just 30 minutes.

Technology reduces risk in cosmetic surgeries

Cosmetic surgery procedures now employ advanced technology to help get results, a July 13 article of CCTV America reported. Surgery is becoming more appealing for many Americans, since worrisome risks are continuing to decline.

Researchers at the Center of Excellence in Nanomedicine and Engineering in San Diego even discovered a non-surgical procedure to extract unwanted body fats. Director of the center, Adah Almutairi, invented the Nanolipo procedure from the cancer treatments with which they experimented. Unlike traditional liposuction procedure, a solution of gold nanoparticles is intravenously introduced to target a body part. Surgeons then apply heat to help the gold particles to dissolve fat. Once the fat dissolves, doctors extract it from the body. Nanolipo, if approved, has much lower associated risks than liposuction, since nanolipo does not damage nerves and tissues. Almutairi’s group is hopeful that their discovery will become available in the market after three years.

As new cosmetic surgery technology is under development, there are other procedures that can remove unwanted body fats.

Skin cancer cure: Mohs surgery

Individuals with skin cancer may want to undergo Mohs surgery to treat the problem and prevent cancer cells from returning.

Also called chemosurgery, Mohs surgery removes skin cancer while making sure cancer-free skin tissue is not damaged. Patients undergoing this procedure have a higher chance of eliminating their skin cancer and preventing it from coming back because surgeons remove skin layer by layer instead of all at once. During the procedure, surgeons cut out the cancerous cells from the skin one layer at a time. Individuals who have Squamous Cell Carcinoma and Basal Cell Carcinoma may highly benefit from this procedure.
