Q Your Skinformation I had a CoolSculpting treatment done on my tummy last year, and although the area is atter than before, I would really like to see more improvement. Is there anything else that will help, but without doing liposuction? CoolSculpting is one of our most popular procedures, because it works and there is no downtime. Having performed the most treatments of any practice in the Southwestern U.S., we have found that our patients are happiest with their results when they have more than one treatment done, because each treatment removes additional fat. Also, treating neighboring areas can help to sculpt the waistline even more. Q A A I saw a doctor about the spider veins on my legs, and he told me that the only treatment that works are injections, and I would have to wear support hose while I am healing. Wearing support hose is just not an option for me. Am I stuck with these veins? For many years, injections were the only e ective treatment for leg veins. Fortunately for you, this is no longer e FDA-approved Cutera true. Excel V laser can eliminate unsightly leg veins without injections, downtime, or support hose. It works for tiny red spider veins as well as the larger bluish ones.

But I went to see a new doctor, and she recommended six syringes. It seems like an excessive amount, and the last thing I want is to look obvious or overdone. What do you think? With newer ller techniques designed to “re ate” the face by restoring lost volume, this is not an excessive amount of product. You will look natural, fresher, and less tired, and typically results last longer when more ller is placed in the skin. Jody Comstock, M.D. Tina Pai, M.D. SKIN Spectrum 520.797.8885 6127 N.
