Laser Therapy to Treat Varicose Veins

Laser Therapy to Treat  Varicose Veins

There is a way to treat spider veins and larger, varicose veins using laser technology called EVLT – Endovenous Laser Ablation. A doctor or vascular surgeon, certified in this technology can improve the look and feel of your legs.

A vascular surgeon is the only medical professional with the proper training to diagnose and treat vein problems in the legs. His expertise is in problems with the veins specifically and examines your arteries and medical history for clues to correct the problem. They look at everything relating to the patient, including any medications they currently take and any other medical diagnoses.

Endovenous Ablation of the Saphenous Vein (EVLT) and VNUS Closure

What typically happens during the procedure?:

During a procedure like this, you will be under sedation or perhaps a local anesthetic. A laser device that uses radio frequencies – the VNUS Closure device – is inserted through a catheter and into the skin of the affected leg. Under the close observation of the surgeon, a pulse of energy is delivered through the device and into the vein causing it to collapse and close. This energy is in the form of heat. The bad vein is now permanently closed and the other healthy veins take over and direct the blood flow to another area. Any symptoms you experience will disappear over a few weeks.

Since the procedure is done in the office, it is completed quickly and the patient is free to resume their activities with the help of compression stockings. Walking is encouraged to help the body heal itself, but avoid any strenuous exercise for a while until you get the doctor’s approval.

The surgeon you choose to perform this procedure should be someone with the latest cutting edge equipment and years of experience to reduce the possibility of any problems during the procedure. Taking more precautions will ensure a quick procedure with the least amount of pain or discomfort.

Injection Sclerotherapy Using Ultrasound

Using ultrasound and the tiniest of needles, Sclerotherapy is extremely effective at treating large varicose veins that can lead to further problems. The vein is injected with a liquid solution that causes an irritation inside the vein wall causing it to collapse. The vein is now closed off without the need for surgery. Two solutions, Asclera and Sotradecol, are FDA-approved for this purpose. Saline solution is not used anymore because it can cause scarring and burning.

Ligation and Vein Stripping

This procedure is a surgical procedure that involves removing a portion of the damaged vein. The patient is given a local anesthetic and must wear compression stockings afterward. Walking is highly encouraged and recommended.

Now you know more about vascular surgeons and laser therapy to get rid of varicose veins.

FAQ’s About Dermal Fillers

FAQ’s About Dermal Fillers

Are you curious about Botox or other dermal fillers? If you have questions about dermal fillers and how they work, it may help you to understand the basics to determine if this type of treatment is right for you.

How Popular is Dermal Filler Therapy?

It is extremely popular in places like North America where it is more common than cosmetic dentistry It is not restricted to women only, more men are using this treatment now than in the past. Most people have heard of this treatment so it is well-known just about everywhere.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Dermal fillers are injected beneath the skin into areas like the folds of skin around the nose, tiny lines around the mouth, and other areas of the face to plump up and fill in those areas smoothing wrinkles away.

In past years, services like these could only be performed by plastic surgeons — or dermatologists. With new technology and training in these areas, these services are now performed by medical estheticians working in the doctor’s office.

Botox, on the other hand, is used to immobilize certain facial muscles to reduce the muscle movements that cause wrinkles. It is often used with dermal fillers as a complete treatment. The Botox restricts muscle movement and the fillers smooth and plump the skin making it appear younger and firmer.

How Long Do the Effects Last?

Typically, the results last around six months but may last a bit longer depending on the patient. They all work differently and some are designed to be temporary and others are more permanent. The risks with temporary fillers are limited because they seldom last longer than 18 months so if you don’t like the effects you just wait until it wears off.

Products like Juvederm and Restylane are at the top of the list for most popular fillers today since bovine collagen requires allergy testing in sensitive individuals. These products are comprised of Hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance that diminishes with age, and dermal fillers with it plump the skin giving it a natural appearance. Most often they last from 6 to 12 months and are used for a variety of facial lines and wrinkles.

Patient Concerns

Many patients are familiar with the names of these products and may already be using some of them. The concerns about side effects are minimal and have been very mild. There are few instances of problems since the effects wear off within 12 months with no permanent changes to the facial structure.

Doctors who offer dermal fillers like this can substantially increase their patient loads and their revenues by offering this service. They are required to go through an additional training course and be certified to administer it and the benefits are well worth it.

Aesthetic Procedures for Anti-aging – Microdermabrasion

Aesthetic Procedures for Anti-aging – Microdermabrasion

Technology makes it possible to turn back the hands of time and undo some of the damage from the sun and normal aging. A few years ago, these procedures were mostly booked by celebrities and rich people due to the limited availability of products and percieved costs.

Today, the technology is more readily available and increased supply has brought costs down to a more affordable level for most people. Treatments like microdermabrasion and Botox therapy can erase the signs of aging making those fine lines around the eyes disappear.

This treatment is technologically advanced but does not require surgery or the use of anesthetics. It is a non-invasive treatment that is safe and has virtually no side-effects.

What exactly is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a technique that removes the top layer of skin cells by buffing them away. It is similar to a chemical peel but uses no chemicals. These treatments are becoming more popular among men and women due to the accessibility of such treatments and patients love that it takes very little time so they can book treatments during their lunch hour and resume their activities right after.

The top layer of your skin is affected by the sun’s UV rays, the wind, and all the chemical components that we come into contact with every day. This is how the pores get clogged with dirt and oil. What happens when that top layer of skin is lightly scraped is it takes off the dead skin cells and encourages new ones to grow. It also encourages collagen production for firming up sagging skin. The new skin underneath is fresh and soft and gives your skin a natural-looking glow that improves the appearance.

How does microdermabrasion work?

Your skin is made up of two different layers the dermis, and the epidermis. The epidermis is the outer layer that is subjected to the elements, while the dermis is the layer underneath, which is where the new skin cells are produced. You might be surprised to know that the epidermis is actually made up of dead skin cells. That outer layer is called the stratum corneum and it is the part of the skin we put face cream and makeup on.

During a microdermabrasion treatment, the stratum corneum is the skin cells that are removed. It only affects the top layer of skin and nothing underneath. There is no worry about bruising or scarring since it does not go under the skin.

What Microdermabrasion Does for the Skin

The actual mechanism that makes it work so well is the fact that anytime you have an abrasion to the skin such as a scraped knee or a cut, the body’s defense system sends antibodies to the surface of the skin to fight off germs and speed the healing by making new skin cells. Microdermabrasion is simulating this same type of effect, the body thinks it is being attacked and send those antibodies and nutrients to the skin to produce collagen and fresh, new skin cells.

Are there side effects to microdermabrasion?

There are minor side effects such as redness and soreness to the touch. These effects are temporary and don’t last long. ‘You might experience a little bit of swelling but not everyone does. The length of time it takes depends on your body, but most people see improvement of the symptoms within a few hours.

Microdermabrasion is a totally non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that changes the way you look and feel. Talk to your doctor to see if this procedure might be beneficial to you.

Choosing the Right Continuing Education Program

Choosing the Right Continuing Education Program

Medical professionals and healthcare providers are required to keep their skills updated through continuing education. Continuing education covers a wide range of extended learning programs and courses meant to take their skills to the next level. It is a regular part of being a health care professional and you should definitely make the most of it. Here are some things to consider when deciding what courses or programs to take.

There seems to be a surge of interest in continuing education… why is this happening?

Continuing education has become “a thing” of late and is wildly gaining popularity. Although there are many factors causing increased participation in professional development programs, there are four trends that are beginning to emerge. Here are a few reasons why continuing education is becoming so popular these days.

People have more disposable income than in the past. A few years ago, cosmetic procedures like facelifts and dermal fillers were considered to be something only wealthy people do. The average person didn’t see it as something they could afford. But with the latest technology and innovation in Botox injectables, they now see the cost as reasonable, and the accessibility of treatment has greatly improved.

With the increase in disposable income, more clients are making appointments in your office. You may already have an existing client base of some considering Botox or other dermal fillers. If you begin marketing these treatments that client base can grow even more. One way to determine if people would be interested in this service is to simply ask them. Let them know you are thinking of offering this service and would they be interested. See what the patients say.

While training courses, study materials, and new equipment are necessary for earning your CE credits, the actual investment is minimal in comparison to what you get back in return. You could spend thousands or more on new equipment and around $1600 for a live course or $700 for an online course, and no new equipment. If you choose to take the Dentox “Botox Aesthetic Training Online” course, the only investment required is a few vials of the product. You can easily recover those costs with your very first scheduled procedure. The online course is convenient and you can do your training anywhere as long as you have an Internet connection. You can even do it from your smartphone. Compare this to investments in other programs that may take you years to see any profit (after paying all the fees).

Dr. Howard Katz, the chief instructor, holds 5 patents and is named on many others. He holds the record for being the only doctor to administer these injections until now. Together with Dentox, he helped to develop the protocols for these treatments and use of the products. There is no one else more knowledgeable on the products or their use.

When choosing a continuing education program, consider who is offering the course. Many of them are taught by pharmacy salesmen who do not have the qualifications to be teaching a class. Others may be taught by some random person you’ve never heard of before and have no way of checking their credentials.

If you are going to invest hard-earned money in continuing education credits, you want to learn from the best in the business or someone known for their expertise and extensive knowledge on the subject. You want to learn from an industry leader in the latest technological advances.

Before taking the plunge and investing thousands of dollars in training materials and course instruction, consider choosing the course that will give you back the fastest return on your investment. Consider Dentox as your online training provider.

Patients like to make just one appointment and go to one location instead of traveling around to get everything they need. The practice will gain new patients increasing their revenues and upgrading the services currently offered with their newly acquired Botox skills. The investment is actually quite small compared to the cost of other programs, and the ROI is larger and faster.

Courses are taught by a well-known, highly-qualified instructor. Dr. Howard Katz, the chief instructor, holds the patent applications for botulinum toxin injectables Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport. There is no one more qualified to teach Botox aesthetic injections than Dr. Katz.

Students are taught the latest techniques using real products. When taking a Botox course from another company, there is no way to know what type of skills and techniques will be taught. What are the credentials of the instructors? How many years have they been teaching students? These are questions that should be asked when considering training. Dr. Katz’s reputation extends worldwide and there is no question of his qualifications for teaching. You can be assured of a quality education under his instruction.

We provide the only hands-on online course. How is it possible to be hands-on in an online course? The skills are taught first using foam heads for practice. The students are then tested to ensure that they have mastered the skill by performing the procedure on a real person with photos as proof of the skill mastery. The student is in communication with the instructor the entire time. By offering a way for the student to practice beforehand it guarantees successful completion of the course. This enables the course to be taught completely online and without the need for travel or additional expenses.

Dentox Courses Offer Better ROI

Dentox Courses Offer Better ROI

If you are on the fence about offering Botox services you should know that the investment is minimal and you can basically recover your money with the very first patient you treat. You may be putting it off because you don’t have that many patients asking for it yet. But you can make a profit from it even if you treat fewer than 3 patients per year. Here is a breakdown of the costs and how the service practically pays for itself.

Big Profits from a Little Tube

In 2012, Americans spent nearly $11 billion on cosmetic procedures ranging from skin rejuvenation to treatment of spider veins. Botulinum toxin type A injections (Botox and Dysport) are the two most popular nonsurgical treatments.

Let’s do some math to see how this translates to money in your pocket. A 100 unit vial of botox sells for around $580. Your profit on each vial is $1000.
On average, physicians charge $300 to $600 for a Botox treatment at $10 to $15 per unit using roughly 30 to 50 units per session. It is slightly more in heavily competitive areas. Now, do you see how this could equal pretty big profits for your practice?

Determining Financial Viability

How do you determine if adding cosmetic procedures will financially benefit your practice? Ask yourself the following questions:

● How much demand is there for the procedure?
● Is someone else in the community providing the procedure?
● Can I perform the procedure better than the competition?
● How will it affect my current patients and staff?
● How will it affect my time?

In case you were wondering, in 2012 there were 3,257,913 botox treatments administered, 1,413,705 treatments with hyaluronic acid, and 883,893 laser hair removal treatments given. During this time, Botox was the most frequently used treatment and is still a popular choice today.

What about other services? If you were to start offering implants the course, equipment, and lab fees would run you between $25,000 to $50,000. That is your initial investment. How long would it take you to begin showing a profit? You will also need to increase your insurance. It would take years before you see any ROI.

How about laser hair removal? The equipment costs are between $5,000 and $10,000 for the unit by itself. How many treatments would it take to recover your costs for purchase? Is there enough demand for the service to make it worth the cost?

What about buying a Cerec machine? How many restorations would it take to make this profitable? You would be doing all the work yourself so you would be saving on lab fees. But you are also responsible for anything that goes wrong with the machine and your patient.

In comparison, the most profitable service you can offer in your practice is Botox therapy.
