    A Look at Fraxel Laser Technology

    Last updated 7 days ago

    If your skin is no longer glowing and healthy in appearance, it may be time to start thinking about laser skin treatments. Skin doctors offer a number of great treatments designed to get rid of blemishes and wrinkles while returning skin to its youthful appearance.

    Fraxel laser technology makes it easier than ever for skin doctors to provide these amazing services for clients. This technology uses fractional photothermolysis to gradually remodel the collagen in the skin. After treatment, clients typically notice younger-looking skin that is softer, smoother, and more even in tone. The Fraxel laser treats small portions of skin, resulting in short recovery times. Clients may require multiple treatments to obtain the results they want.

    Visit Cara Mia Medical Day Spa & Dermatology Associates of Colorado for more information about Fraxel laser technology and how it improves aging skin. You can also find some fast facts on our website or call us at (303) 558-3192 to learn about our Denver dermatology clinic

    Preventing Varicose Veins

    Last updated 13 days ago

    Varicose veins commonly appear on the legs and ankles as people age. Other factors, such as being overweight or being pregnant, can also increase the risk of developing these unsightly intrusions. Taking cautionary measures now can help you reduce your chance of dealing with varicose veins in the future. Continue reading to learn some tips to prevent varicose veins.

    Maintain a Healthy Weight
    Your weight can play a big role in how and when your body starts forming varicose veins. Being overweight or obese puts too much pressure on the veins and negatively affects blood flow, making varicose veins almost inevitable. A healthy weight will reverse these issues and help you prevent varicose veins. Staying active to lose or maintain weight is also good for improving circulation throughout your legs, which can help to stop varicose veins before they start.

    Reevaluate Your Wardrobe
    Clothing is another important factor that can increase your risk of developing varicose veins. If you prefer clothing that is tight fitting around your waist or thighs, you may be harming your circulation. Looser-fitting clothes can help you maintain better circulation. If you wear high heels regularly, you might want to consider choosing shorter heels or opting for flat shoes sometimes, as high heels decrease muscle contraction in the calves and increase pressure that can lead to varicose veins.

    Avoid Sitting or Standing for Long Periods of Time
    Sitting or standing for too long is another common culprit of varicose vein development. Both habits can affect circulation and increase a person’s risk for developing varicose veins or worsening existing ones. If your job requires you to sit for long periods of time, stand up and walk around a few times throughout the day to improve blood flow. If your job requires you to stand, try to sit and elevate your feet a few times throughout your workday.

    Protecting Your Skin with Proper Sunscreen Application

    Last updated 21 days ago

    Sunscreen is a vital tool in the fight against skin cancer. Unfortunately, too many people forget to wear sunscreen or do not know how to apply it properly. Learning how to properly apply sunscreen can help you stay safe while having fun in the sun this summer.

    As you will see in this video, it is important to choose a water-resistant and broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Apply about an ounce of sunscreen to all exposed skin to protect it from the sun’s harmful rays. Put your sunscreen on 15 minutes before going outside and be sure to reapply when necessary.

    Find more tips for applying sunscreen and protecting your skin by scheduling an appointment at Cara Mia Medical Day Spa & Dermatology Associates of Colorado. Give us a call at (303) 558-3192 to learn about our skin doctors and what they can do for your skin.
