Cosmetic Dermatology

Sclerotherapy of spider veins
Spider veins are a type of varicose veins and are small veins with a branching or web-like pattern that develop close to the surface of the skin. In most cases these tiny blood vessels appear on the legs. They may be due to a hereditary preposition, or appear as a result of congestion in the venous system. In the absence of an involvement of the remaining venous system of the leg, spider veins present a cosmetic rather than a medical problem.

Prior to any treatment it is necessary to examine both the superficial and the deeper venous system to rule out possible pre-existing venous diseases. After that, spider veins can be treated for instance by means of sclerotherapy.

Scar treatment
Scars more or less represent the final stage of wound healing. They occur predominantly after injuries or surgeries.

If you are also struggling with unsightly scars, I would be happy to inform you in detail about all the options for effective scar treatment.

Chemical peels
Chemical peels are applied to remove dead skin cells. This stimulates cell renewal. A general regeneration of the different skin layers will follow.

Peels lead to an improved complexion, especially in the case of fine lines, acne, large pores, or pigmentation disorders. The skin becomes generally firmer and looks fresher. Penetration depth and effect depend on the substance used. It is applied after careful cleaning and degreasing of the skin.

Dark spots and melasma
Sun exposure stimulates our pigment cells (melanocytes). This process can be disrupted by various factors. Hormonal influences cause discoloration in some women after sun exposure (melasma). In the course of life, increased, but sometimes irregular pigmentation also develops in the form of sun or age spots on parts of the skin frequently exposed to sunlight.

Depending on the type of pigment spot, different treatment options such as laser, chemical peels or microneedling are available.
