Leg Veins Becoming a Problem?

We all know what Spider Veins are, as many as up to 60% of us have them. They are those little red, purple and blue twisting veins often visible through your skin, making many people feel self-conscience. The little buggers generally sneak into sight on the legs and face, making them even more noticeable.

Why do we get them? There are a number of factors that dictate whether or not a person develops them. Some of these factors include heredity, occupations which require standing for extended periods of time and hormonal changes due to taking birth control, being pregnant or menopausal.

How do you treat them? One way is through the cutting edge technology of the Yag Laser. The Yag Laser has many great uses and is used in Eye Surgery, Oncology (to remove skin cancers), Dentistry, Gynecology as well as several kinds of cosmetic treatments such as hair removal and, of course, in the treatment of Spider Veins.

Microdermabrasion Houston

Did you know that skin is the largest organ? We are surrounded by our skin, it keeps us safe and battles the elements day in and day out, everyday of our life. Taking proper care of your skin is one of the best ways to keep yourself looking young and healthy. Dr. Longo offers a plethora of skin care treatments to keep your skin in top form. One of these procedures is Microdermabrasion.

Houston Microdermabrasion is a popular skin re-freshening treatment which uses tiny crystals to remove the outer layer of dead skin cells to reveal the smooth, yet unharmed, healthy skin which lies just beneath. Since Microdermabrasion is removing that dead outer layer of skin, any skin imperfection on that layer will also be removed. Skin imperfections such as uneven skin pigmentation, fine line, wrinkles and sun damage may be effectively treated with Microdermabrasion.

Consulting with a skin care specialist is the best way to determine if Microdermabrasion is the right treatment option for you. Contact our office to schedule your consultation today.

Before and After Patient Results!

At Ophthalmic Plastic Surgeons of Texas, we believe our results speak for themselves. If you are in the process of looking for a Plastic Surgeon, it can be overwhelming to know what to look for and ask. The first thing you’ll want to check is if they are board certified. Check out the Plastic Surgeon’s training and education and how long they’ve been a Plastic Surgeon in your area. These are all important things to know. True success in this business is marked by a patient’s satisfaction in the Plastic Surgeon’s work. The best way to asses this is by reading patient testimonials and viewing Before and After photos.

Before and After photos are very beneficial for prospective patients to look at. As you look at a Plastic Surgeon’s work, ask yourself if you would be happy with the results achieved in the photo. Keep in mind that each patient comes into the office with different sets of goals and needs, but if, in general, you feel positive about the results achieved, that is a good sign that that Plastic Surgeon may be able to achieve your goals. As always, it’s important to remember to have realistic expectations and not aim to look like anyone other than an enhanced version of yourself.

Ophthalmic Plastic Surgeons of Texas: Brow Lift Rejuvenation

Our faces are communicating things to other people constantly, even when we aren’t aware of it. The lines of our faces tell a story about how we are feeling and this is why it is so important that our faces are telling the trust story about how we are feeling. This is the reasons many men and women opt for a Brow Lift procedure. The face, particularly the forehead and area around the eyes, is often one of the first places we begin to show signs of aging. As these creases and wrinkles form it can make us appear more angry, upset or tired than we actually are. Often the brow can become heavy and hang low over the eyes. Theses are all issues that Brow Lift surgery can address to help restore a more youthful, relaxed, alert, and natural appearance.
