Learn About the Benefits of Microdermabrasion

Is your skin lacking the radiance it once had? Are you concerned about sunspots or little fine lines? Are you searching for a way to treat clogged pores, rosacea, small scars, or other similar skin issues? Having microdermabrasion in Orlando is definitely a procedure worth considering. Dr. Richard Bragg of Florida Vein Care and Cosmetic Center recommends microdermabrasion for people who are concerned about restoring the health, look, and feel of their skin.

What to expect after your first treatment.

In a mere 30-minute, pain-free session, microdermabrasion uses powder-fine crystals to remove your skin’s dead or damaged cells through ever-so-gentle exfoliation. After your very first treatment, you will experience notable improvement in the look and feel of your skin. Your skin will feel softer and smoother and will be able to better absorb hydrating lotions and other skin care products. Additional treatments will continue to rejuvenate the skin’s surface restoring it to youthful radiance and feeling softer and smoother after each treatment. Keep in mind that medical microdermabrasion is not restricted just to treating the face. Shoulders, backs, and chests can also reap the benefits of exfoliation.

Are there additional benefits of microdermabrasion in Orlando?

  • Microdermabrasion requires no preparation and no recovery time after the procedure.
  • Application of skin care products such as hydrating gels or lotions, acne creams, or anti-aging products will be better absorbed after a treatment.
  • Having microdermabrasion is the best way to remove a large amount of damaged and dead skin cells in a single treatment, unlike other facial procedures.

When considering a medical microdermabrasion treatment, you don’t need to be concerned about the color or tone of your skin. This skin treatment is used with fabulous results on all skin colors and types. It is also one of the best ways available to fight aging skin; the removal of dead skin cells promotes the regeneration of healthier, more elastic cells keeping you looking and feeling younger.

At Florida Vein Care and Cosmetic Center, we’ve built a team that is dedicated to helping you look and feel your youthful best. Call us now at (407) 805-8989 to schedule a consultation and learn more about microdermabrasion in Orlando, as well as our other skincare treatments which have all been designed to promote healthier skin and restore its vitality and radiance. You can also contact us online to receive information about all of our aesthetic services.

Vein Specialists and Ethical Standards

Remember the old adage “Buyer Beware?” There is a great deal of truth hidden in that phrase for many reasons. Nowadays, it is still an important warning to heed if you are trying to find a good doctor. If you are searching for care by an Orlando vein center, Dr. Richard Bragg of Florida Vein Care and Cosmetic Center suggests that you exercise caution when seeking diagnosis and treatment of varicose veins. “Today’s patients and physicians must be willing to participate together in the diagnosis and development of their customized treatment plan to help ensure that they are being well cared for by an authority in the field.”

It is very important to work with a physician who upholds the established guidelines when diagnosing and treating venous conditions such as spider or varicose veins. Unfortunately, not all doctors work ethically and are more concerned about the numbers of patients treated, which ultimately enhances their bottom line. These physicians hastily make generic diagnoses and follow up with procedures that may not resolve the issue in one treatment. The following suggestions pertain to surface spider and varicose veins. Patients who suffer from deep venous issues may require other forms of treatment.

What you should consider when choosing an Orlando vein specialist:

  • The doctor you select should be using ultrasound imaging to confirm reflux in the vein. This is the only way to guarantee that your treatment is actually warranted.
  • Procedures should only be performed on veins that show actual signs and symptoms of varicosity.
  • A vein specialist will typically only have to perform a single ablation on any named vein. (Some physicians will perform ablations over several treatments of the same sight at different strengths. This is not an ethical way to proceed.)
  • If sclerotherapy is warranted, there should be a predetermined understanding between doctor and patient as to whether or not it will be performed at the same time as an ablation or it will be scheduled for a future visit.

At Florida Vein Care and Cosmetic Center, it is the goal of Dr. Bragg and his staff to always perform a thorough diagnosis utilizing ultrasound imaging and comprehensive physical examination. As the premier vein specialist in Orlando, Dr. Bragg will personally meet with you to discuss your diagnosis and your treatment options. Call us at 407-805-8989 to schedule your consultation today. Choosing your Orlando vein center is serious business. Make sure you choose wisely.

The Surprising Benefits of Varicose Vein Treatment

jump-1634773_1920The decision to look for a vein treatment center in Orlando is one of the best decisions you will ever make to improve your vascular health. Spider and varicose veins are not just unsightly; they are indicators of venous disease that can continue to escalate if left untreated. Dr. Bragg and the experts at Florida Vein Care & Cosmetic Center are recognized leaders with more than 10 years of experience in caring for patients with varicose veins.

There are several procedures, surgical and non-surgical, that can be utilized to eliminate varicose veins. Dr. Bragg and his team will explain the risks and benefits of each procedure and determine which treatment option is best for you. He will also explore the risk if you choose not to seek treatment. Keep in mind that venous disease does not typically go away on its own, and chronic venous insufficiency will only get worse as time goes on. It can progress to deep vein thrombosis and other very serious conditions.

Why should you seek varicose vein treatment?

  1. Well Established – Many varicose vein treatments have been performed for more than 70 years with documented success rates.
  2. Highly Effective – Most treatments are highly effective. When sclerotherapy is deemed an appropriate treatment, the Mayo Clinic finds that, “studies of sclerotherapy as a treatment for varicose and spider veins indicate that it has an overall success rate of about 60 to 80 percent in eliminating treated veins.”
  3. Non-Surgical – While most varicose veins require minor surgery, some patients will respond well to Sclerotherapy, a non-surgical treatment option.
  4. No Downtime – Unlike procedures of the past, most varicose vein treatments performed today allow for patients to return to their daily routine immediately.
  5. Few Side Effects – While there may be a little tenderness at the injection site, there are few to no side effects reported from most of today’s treatment options.
  6. You will look and, more importantly, feel better – Enjoy wearing shorts, skirts, or dresses once again. Your legs will look years younger, and your vascular health will be greatly improved.

Restoring your vascular health through a varicose vein treatment is the number one priority for Dr. Bragg and the medical team at Florida Vein Care and Cosmetic Center. Call now and schedule your consultation with one of the best vein treatment centers in Orlando at 407-805-8989. Kick the pain and unsightliness of varicose veins today!

Varicose Veins: More Painful Than Unsightly

countrygirl-349923_1920The first appearance of spider veins or the observation of bluish, gnarled, thick veins beneath the surface of the skin is a major source of embarrassment for many people. The opportunity to wear short, skirts, dresses, or bathing suits is no longer an option for them. In a climate where these garments are a big part of every wardrobe, there is no place for varicose veins! Dr. Richard Bragg of Florida Vein Care and Cosmetic Center, a leading Orlando vein center, wants you to know that there are more reasons to seek vein care than the way spider and varicose veins look.

Aside from discoloration, bulging and swelling that are noticeable when varicose veins appear are the less noticeable, but often more distressing, symptoms. They can include the following:

  • A feeling of heaviness or achiness
  • Jumpiness or a restless feeling that they can’t keep their legs still
  • A throbbing sensation
  • A dull ache
  • A sharp pain

Symptoms are a warning sign.

The human body is an amazing machine. Each and every part is meant to work in harmony with all the other components. When one part fails, the rest of the body responds. When varicose veins occur, the vascular system is sending a warning that something is wrong. The warning should not be ignored.

Pain is a symptom.

Many people try to push through pain. Others believe, “No pain, no gain.” When it comes to your vein health, pain in your legs or arms that is accompanied by swelling and/or discoloration should warrant an immediate appointment to your doctor.

Varicose veins are the result of the malfunction of the valves which regulate blood flow. When the valves begin to leak, the blood begins to pool behind the valve, eventually causing the vein to appear discolored and swell. The aches and pains are soon to follow. Don’t suffer needlessly.

We take vein care very seriously. At Florida Vein Care and Cosmetic Center, you will be welcomed by Dr. Richard Bragg and his expert medical staff who will take the time to thoroughly review your medical history and determine what’s going on with your vascular health. Our team at our Orlando vein center will determine the most appropriate treatment plan for your individual situation. Call us at 407-805-8989 to schedule an appointment today.

Belotero Balance® vs Xeomin®: Which One?

girl-1319114_1920There is no question that the aging process causes wrinkles and folds in our skin. Unfortunately, they can occur much earlier and be much more noticeable than we would wish them to be. Sometimes, they occur between the eyes, and these are called glabellar lines. Or, they may be visible down the side of your nose and may extend to the corners of your mouth. These types of wrinkles are called nasolabial folds. If you have decided it’s time to explore treatment options to reduce or eliminate these facial annoyances, Dr. Richard Bragg of Florida Vein Care and Cosmetic Center is here to help, offering both Orlando Xeomin® and Belotero Balance® procedures.

Why are they options? It’s because certain treatments are better suited for specific types of lines and wrinkles and their location. Belotero Balance® is dermal filler, specifically developed to treat moderate to severe nasolabial folds and lessen their overall appearance on each side of your nose to the corners of your mouth. It is approved by the FDA and is a safe and effective way to treat these and other delicate facial areas around the mouth and nose. Smile lines and the thin lines that appear above and around the lips (vertical lip lines) have also been successfully treated with Belotero Balance®.

Xeomin® is also approved by the FDA and is used for the treatment of moderate to severe glabellar lines (frown lines). Xeomin® is produced from the same bacterium that causes botulism, but it does not require refrigeration and does not have an attached protein in its molecular structure which makes it different from Botox®. The resulting effect is the reduction in the appearance of the glabellar lines. It has also been approved for treatment of lines across the forehead and crow’s feet. Xeomin® works more as a muscle and nerve relaxer whereas Belotero Balance® is used as dermal filler.

The expert staff at Florida Vein Care and Cosmetic Center will examine you to determine if you are a candidate for Orlando Xeomin treatments. You will have the opportunity to discuss the pros and cons and your expectations of the results. The procedures will be thoroughly explained, including what you can anticipate after your first treatment. Side effects for both are usually minimal. Complete our online contact form, or call us at 407-805-8989. You have nothing to lose except those lovely little crevices that are making you feel uncomfortable about your appearance!

Can You Blame Your Job for Your Varicose Veins?

macbook-336704_1920To determine whether or not your job is a contributing factor to developing varicose veins, you actually need to consider more than just your job. There are those who absolutely believe that spending all day on your feet causes varicose veins. And then there are those who claim that people who work sedentary jobs are more prone to developing varicose veins. At Florida Vein Care, you will find the best vein treatment in Orlando, regardless of what caused your varicosities.

It is true that individuals who have careers that require them to spend copious amounts of time on their feet have been known to experience more varicose veins. Teachers, servers, hairstylists, nurses, cashiers – you get the idea – are more likely to develop diseased veins. However, the larger predisposition occurs in women who hold these types of jobs. No one can state for certain that standing for extended periods of time actually causes varicose veins, but genetics certainly play an important role.

The same holds true for people who spend the majority of their time sitting. Those who are chained to a desk share the same risk as those who stand all day and, once again, women bear the greater risk of developing varicosities.

Regardless of your job, the key to keeping your veins healthy requires striking a balance of activities and diet that will work to improve your circulation. You don’t have to join a gym to find exercises that will help to strengthen your legs; you can simply begin walking or swimming. Always check with your physician before beginning any new exercise regime or diet, but get out and move!

Standing or sitting, the use of compression hosiery can help keep your circulation flowing properly. The delicate pressure put on your leg muscles helps to dilate the veins which improves blood flow. If you are at a sedentary job, force yourself to get up and move around every thirty minutes or so. If you are on your feet, shift your weight from leg to leg periodically. It’s also important to elevate your legs when you are resting. Avoid wearing tight fitting clothes as they can compress veins, impeding blood flow.

If you are concerned that you are developing spider or varicose veins, don’t delay seeking a medical opinion. Dr. Richard Bragg of Florida Vein Care is here to answer all of your questions and discuss treatment options if you are diagnosed with varicose veins. Vein treatment in Orlando has changed over the years, and your vein health is too important to overlook. You need to be seen by the most trusted vein specialist in Central Florida. Call us at 407-805-8989 to schedule your consultation.

What to Expect with Your Sclerotherapy Procedure

woman-1426435_1920(2)One of the most frequently performed procedures for the treatment of spider and varicose veins at Florida Vein Care is sclerotherapy. Dr. Richard Bragg leads the highly skilled and professional team who delivers the best in vein care at their vein clinic in Orlando where a variety of treatments for both spider and varicose veins are offered. The key to recommending what will be the most successful procedure for you is the accurate diagnosis of the scope and size of the diseased vessels.

Dr. Bragg explains: “Sclerotherapy is used for slightly larger spider veins and small varicose veins. It’s in these sized blood vessels that sclerotherapy provides the most relief.” So, what exactly is sclerotherapy? Sclerotherapy is a series of very small, almost infinitesimal, injections containing a sclerosing agent which is a painless solution that bathes the inside of the damaged vein. The liquid or foam injected causes the veins ultimately collapse. The vein is then reabsorbed by the body while new routes for circulation are developed naturally.

The sclerotherapy procedure is performed in an office setting with a local anesthetic. It usually takes 30 minutes for each session during which 50 to 70 veins can be treated. At the time of the injection, some patients report a feeling of mild cramping which resolves quickly. Compression stockings are prescribed to be worn for a minimum of one week following a treatment. If additional procedures are required for selected areas, these treatments can be scheduled three to six weeks after each procedure. It is recommended that patients do not engage in strenuous activities or aerobic exercise for the week following a treatment.

Prior to your treatment, it is recommended that you bathe or shower but that you do not shave your legs on the day of. Do not use lotions or creams or spray lotions on your legs on the day of the procedure. Aspirin, ibuprofen, anti-inflammatory medication, blood thinners and other medications or herbal supplements are to be stopped one week before sclerotherapy. You will be provided with a comprehensive list at the time your procedure is scheduled. Try to eat a light meal or snack about 1 ½ hours before arriving at our office.

Your vein health is the number one priority at our vein clinic in Orlando. The only way to determine the severity of your spider or varicose veins and determine which treatment option is right for you is to be examined by an experienced vein care specialist. Call now and schedule your consultation with Dr. Bragg and the amazing staff at Florida Vein Care at 407-805-8989.

5 Reasons to Start Using Latisse®

eye-714503_1920We all know that Mother Nature isn’t fair. Some folks are naturally thin, while others have a life-long battle with their weight.

Who’s to say you can’t fool Mother Nature? At Florida Vein Care and Cosmetic Center, we know that you, indeed, can beat her at her own game.
