Eliminate Leg Veins with Sclerotherapy by Dr. Melanie Palm

Summer is nearly upon us and it is time to whip those "stems" into shape.  Got broken blood vessels or unsightly leg veins just begging to be treated?  We have got the answer....sclerotherapy!   In a few short sessions broken blood vessels and even some varicose veins can be dramatically improved with treatment.  Here is a short YouTube video demonstrating the ease and lack of pain involved with a simple sclerotherapy session performed in my hands (Dr. Melanie Palm) :     I love the instant gratification I see from a successfully treated leg vein and seeing is believing.  The treated veins collapse, become irritated, and then are slowly absorbed by the body over the months following treatment.  Therefore, I caution patients that treated veins often look worse just after treatment before they get better over the next several weeks to months.  As results take some time to manifest, it is best to think about treating leg veins now to reap the rewards for summer.   Ask the highly qualified staff at Art of Skin MD how we can make your legs beautiful this summer.  Contact us through the www.artofskinmd.com website or by calling us at (858) 792-7546 (SKIN).

Liposculpture Seminar with Dr. Palm: Shape Up for Summer

Accusculpt laser lipolysis All are welcome to the Art of Skin MD special seminar Thursday, April 11th on the latest in body and facial contouring.  I'm (Dr. Melanie Palm) am pleased to discuss the latest in innovative techniques to address unwanted areas of fat and body imperfections. Here are the Liposculpture Event details at Art of Skin MD:   Thursday, April 11th from 6 to 8 pm (doors open at 5:30 pm) Light appetizers and drinkls will be served     Attendees will learn the latest techniques in minimally invasive liposculpture and laser liposuction using the Accusculpt system.  Liposculpture is performed completely painlessly by the use of tumescent anesthesia and fine sculpting cannulas.  Patients recover quickly from the procedure and there is no need for general anesthesia when using the tumescent technique to numb the areas of liposuction treatment.   Accusculpt laser liposuction system is a 1444 nm laser device used specifically to target unwanted areas of fat and for skin contraction.  Specifically, Dr. Palm uses it for facial sculpting, especially for stubborn jowls and along the jawline and neck.  On the body, the Accusculpt system is helpful in producing skin tightening to the upper arms and lower abdomen.  Accusculpt is performed, in many cases, just prior to traditional tumescent liposuction to enhance the tightening effect following liposuction.   What are areas that can be treated by liposculpture?  The answer is many... the inner and outer thighs, abdomen, saddle bags, hips, tummy bulge (abdomen), waist, arms, back, chest, and double chin can all be improved through liposuction.   So what can be done with the extracted fat?  FAT TRANSFER!  Why not use your own natural "filler" to rejuvenate the face, filling in areas of lost volume such as the temples, nasolabial folds, undereye hollows, and jawline.   At the seminar, I will discuss the procedure from start to finish, and multiple before and after lipo photos of Dr. Palm's own patients will be shown.   Attendance will be restricted to a small group so please RSVP early to attend.   Contact us at Art of Skin MD or call us at 858.792.SKIN (7546) to reserve your place today.
