Rising hemlines are ubiquitous with summer. For those of us not blessed with supermodel legs (in other words, most of us), there may be some aesthetic concerns we’d like to address before we don our summer attire with abandon. In this article, we discuss treatments options that can help Oakville clients love their legs this summer.
Even if you’ve avoided sitting with crossed legs all these years (unlikely), you may find yourself troubled by visible veins and vessels on the legs. This can be due to a hereditary predisposition, a vocation that requires long periods of standing or, as mentioned above, the habit of sitting with one’s legs crossed. Regardless of the cause, the discoloration of these visible vessels can take away from the youthful look of legs. Oakville Plastic Surgery and Advanced Skincare offers laser treatments to non-invasively treat visible veins. The laser targets and destroys the vessel(s) in question. The stagnant blood is re-routed leaving the skin tone more even and reducing the discomfort that can arise from improperly functioning veins. A consultation will ascertain your candidacy for a laser vein treatment. Generally a series of treatments should be expected to achieve optimal results.
Improved shape and tone.
Unfortunately there are limitations to what can be achieved through diet and exercise when it comes to realizing our ideal legs. When our legs aren’t looking as smooth and svelte as we’d like, a non-invasive device such as Velashape™ can be an effective solution. The Velashape™ technology uses bi-polar radiofrequency, infrared light, tissue mobilization and suction to reveal an improved shape and tone for the upper thighs (and other areas). The added bonus is that for many clients, the treatment feels like a hot stone deep tissue massage. After a series of three treatments, results begin to take shape. Improvements such as a reduction in the appearance of cellulite and thigh circumference, as well as smoother, tauter skin can be anticipated.
For clients who require a greater focus on fat reduction, liposuction offers a solution for slimmer legs.
Lifted and rejuvenated limbs.
For some of us, skin laxity due to aging, sun damage and / or weight loss is our main concern. Depending on the degree of elastosis (looseness of the skin), either a non-invasive treatment with Thermage® or surgical intervention with a thigh lift may be required to achieve smooth, tighter skin with improved texture and form.
A consultation with Dr. Nancy de Kleer, plastic surgeon, will determine the most suitable course of treatment to achieve a favourable outcome. Dr. de Kleer has a keen aesthetic eye and will closely consider your objectives and lifestyle when making her recommendations.
