Cosmetic & Vein Clinic Treatment Options Available:
Acne Scarring Treatment
Acne is a medical skin problem that usually begins in the early teenage years and can last until the 30s and even 40s. It consists of mild to severe outbreaks of pimples and cysts – mainly on the face, back, arms and chest. Miranda Cosmetic and Vein Clinic offer various forms of treatment dependent on the severity of the acne scarring and personal factors.
Sclerotherapy (Varicose & Spider Veins)
In sclerotherapy, a sclerosing agent is injected into the veins using fine disposable needles. The procedure has been refined in more recent years for injecting tiny superficial veins (microsclerotherapy). The solution destroys the layer of cells that line the vein wall causing the vein to close, preventing any blood flow. Small veins fade over a period of 6 weeks or so, large varicose veins take longer.

Wrinkles or expression lines are the end result of a number of events that act together as we age, these lines become more prominent. A complex set of changes take place at a cellular level - the degradation of collagen from excessive ultraviolet exposure, changes in hormonal levels and the damaging effects of free radicals. These degenerative changes in the presence of underlying muscle contractions cause the skin to crinkle.
Miranda Cosmetic and Vein Clinic provides anti-wrinkle injections. The clinic uses Dysport which contains abobotulinumtoxinA to improve the look of moderate to severe facial features such as frown lines between the eyebrows and on the forehead. The results from the treatment can usually be seen 3-7 days after the injections have been given. Anti-wrinkle injections generally last between 3-4 months dependent on personal and lifestyle factors.
Dermal fillers are injectable substances which when injected into or below the skin add volume to the area and fill out lines. At Miranda Cosmetic and Vein Clinic we predominately use Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in all living organisms and provides volume and fullness to the skin. We have found that Hyaluronic Acid produces high quality results that last between 6 to 18 months.
Many people suffer from excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis) in their palms and hands. It is a common problem that can cause discomfort and embarrassment. Miranda Cosmetic and Vein Clinic uses Dysport, which is a highly effective treatment at reducing excessive sweating in the armpits and in the palms of the hands. Dysport works by reducing nerve signal, thereby blocking the activity of the sweat glands.
