Failed Valves and Loose Skin

varicose veins
The aging process of our body is a regrettably unavoidable factor of the culmination of years on this earth. And in some ways, life wouldn’t be as memorable, fun and worthy of reminiscing about if it weren’t for living, learning and again. Of course, a lot of the factors of aging are very much down to our luck with genetics. There are people who manage to keep their hair until their later twilight years of life, whilst others are unfortunate enough to begin losing their crop before they even reach middle age. Male pattern baldness is just one genetically influenced syndrome associated with aging – greying hairs, wrinkles, loss of metabolism and even varicose veins are all genetically linked to our family history.


Fortunately, for a lot of these physical and aesthetic flaws associated with aging the staff at St. Louis Vein & Endovascular Centre in St. Louis can offer various solutions. Organising a consultation with the head clinician, Dr. Krikorian, will allow you to bring up your requests and concerns in a professional and equitable environment. Utilising state of the art technology, the team at St. Louis Vein & Endovascular Centre are able to solve a large number of your aesthetic dilemmas.


Varicose and Spider Veins

As we age, things inevitably begin to break down. Just like an old car begins to suffer and the pipes in an old house start to shake and clatter, the pipes in our bodies can do the same. Throughout our body’s blood transport system, small valves work to prevent the blood from pooling in certain areas, especially in the lower extremities like the legs. As we get older, these valves begin to fail, allowing blood to pool up and out – creating the blue puffy appearance of varicose veins. The St. Louis Vein & Endovascular Centre offers many different treatments for varicose veins, and the related spider veins. During your consultation, Dr. Krikorian will go through your family and medical history, and identify a personalised and most appropriate treatment plan for your goals.


Wrinkled and Sagging Skin


Just like our inner tubes begin to suffer through old age, so too does our exterior. If you consider the length of time and the roughness of the environment we reside in, it’s quite amazing that our skin doesn’t just shrivel up and flake off before we turn 40. The aging of our skin is unfortunately unavoidable – the collagen breaks down as we get older, creating the wrinkled and sagging appearance of the senior population. Fortunately, there are many different treatment options for different effects. Dermal fillers like Botox work wonders in reinvigorating the face by re-adding volume and shape to your features, whilst dermal abrasion and laser sessions will reignite the collagens strength in your skin cells, creating a firmer and more shapely face.
