Give Thanks to Being Spider Vein Free!

This Thanksgiving, why not give thanks to having spider vein-free legs? Spider veins are typically found among women and, in addition, feeder veins found deeper in the skin also lead to discomfort, causing many women to not only seek spider vein removal for cosmetic reasons, but for comfort purposes as well.

Where do spider veins come from? Spider veins come from reticular veins, often called feeder veins, found deeper within the skin. They form a network of additional blue and green colored veins, giving a marbled appearance under the skin’s surface. Although they are difficult to see from the surface, it is still highly important to remove feeder veins during any procedure to prevent further expansion and networking of veins.

At Reno Vein Clinic we provide a top spider vein removal program, utilizing Sclerotherapy, a proven micro-injection procedure. During the hour-long procedure, we treat unwanted visible spider veins in addition to deep feeder veins to prevent future growth.

 Stop by or give us a call at 775-329-3100 to schedule a free consultation today.

Fall Skin Care Tips

As the weather gets colder, now is the time to take a few extra steps to help ensure your skin stays soft and radiant through harsher weather. Don’t have time to stop in for one of our facial treatments or peels? We have you covered with a few fun facial tips from BellaSugar.  Take a peek at the below tips and common foods to help you look and feel your best:

  •  Green Tea — Full of antioxidants and helpful for reducing redness, rinsing your face in cool green tea is a great way to gently soothe skin.
  • Avocado — An excellent moisturizer, avocado is great as a face mask, mashed up in hair or for using just about anywhere that needs a little extra hydration.
  • Oatmeal — For a fast-acting soother, look no further than oatmeal, which has major anti-inflammatory properties. You can drop it in the bath, slather it on your face, or even use it as a gentle scrub.
  • Lemon — The acid in this fruit can whiten nails, give your hair natural-looking highlights, and help slough off dry, flaky skin.
  • Olive Oil — This kitchen staple is great for hydrating hair and smoothing dry spots on skin.
  • Sugar — There’s no sweeter natural exfoliant. Mix this with a little olive, almond, or apricot oil for a great lip and body scrub.
  • Honey — This natural antimicrobial also soothes and draws moisture into skin. Use it in masks or as a spot treatment.

Rejuvenate before the holidays hit!

Did you know we offer top notch skin and laser treatments in addition to our vein procedures? Before the hustle and bustle of the holidays hit, take some time out for yourself and indulge in one of our enhanced skin rejuvenation treatments or micro peels. Here is a quick look at some of our skin and laser treatments:

 La Roche Posay Micro Peel: Instantly improving skin’s texture, this peel utilizes dermaplaning, a manual exfoliation of the skin. Freeing skin of dead cellular layers, the peel also reduces the appearance of brown spots and fine lines. Selenium-rich thermal spring water found in the heart of France runs through all La Roche Posay’s skincare products, making for a unique and pleasant peel.  Selenium is a powerful anti-oxidant, protecting cells from oxidative stress (a cause of skin-aging). The element is used to treat numerous skin problems and help rejuvenate skin. 

BioMedic MicroPeel:  A perfect solution while on the go this season, this quick 15-minute exfoliating peel is a three-step process and requires no recovery time. The treatment utilizes moderate strength glycolic acid (a crystalline solid used in various skincare products) to improve skin appearance and condition. The procedure stimulates cellular turnover, leaving you with beautiful skin almost instantly.

 Enhanced Skin Rejuvenation: Enhanced Skin Rejuvenation treats fine wrinkles and sun-damaged skin. Patients with photo-damage and photo-aging often benefit from the procedure. This treatment specifically helps address sun damage, wrinkles, photo-aging, lentigines and facial telangiectasia, vascular and pigment irregularities.
