Spotlight On Treatment:
Winter Is The Ideal Time
for Leg Vein Therapy!

Half of Americans over 50 have failing leg vein valves which allow blood to pool in the legs. Symptoms of this condition range from aching and fatigue to skin ulcers, blood clots and unsightly bulging blue varicose veins. Now there's an alternative to painful vein stripping. VNUS is a minimally-invasive technique that closes the diseased main vein from within.

Using local anesthetic, Dr. Rick Noodleman applies bursts of radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat and contract the vein wall, sealing the vein in just 3 to 5 minutes. This approach allows the body to re-establish healthier circulation with virtually no discomfort. The entire treatment takes less than an hour. Most patients can resume normal activities the next day. Leg pain and heaviness disappear almost immediately and visible changes are evident within a few short weeks. VNUS is more than 96% effective and, because it's considered a medical necessity, it's covered by Medicare and most health insurance plans. Many patients choose to have the VNUS procedure during the winter months to be able to wear shorts in the Spring - often for the first time in decades.

Revercel is pleased to announce the launch of a new and unique Vitamin C formulation. Designed for all skin types, Vita-C Emulsion is packed with three powerful anti-oxidants - Vitamins C, E, and Coenzyme Q10 - for healthy, radiant skin in a special timed-released formulation for maximum efficacy. Unlike other Vitamin C formulations, Vita-C Emulsion causes minimal-to-no irritation. It brightens dull skin, reduces free radical damage and the appearance of age spots, and protects the skin from the environment's harsh elements. Vita-C also promotes collagen synthesis and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for smoother, younger-looking skin.

Our Clinical Aestheticians can answer your questions and educate you about the most advanced home skin care products and techniques for a healthy complexion.

Your 30-minute Consultation begins with a skin care history, lifestyle review and an in-depth VISIA® Digital Skin Analysis. Your Skin Care Advisor will review the skin care products you currently use and create a customized treatment plan and home care regimen to address your unique skin care needs.

Patient Testimonial

A happy Medi-Spa patient writes:

Age Defy is no longer just a dermatology doctor's office. I went in after I had a horrible reaction to eyebrow waxing. I saw Hannah, one of their Aestheticians. She did a Consultation and gave me a SilkPeel. After the facial, she offered advice for continued skin care. I was so pleased with the results!

Take some time to consider 10 ways to Look and Live Well this year:

  1. Don't smoke. Smoking contributes to the development of heart disease, emphysema, stroke and osteoporosis.
  2. Enjoy physical activities every day. The 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend 60 to 90 minutes of moderate activity daily.
  3. Eat a healthy diet rich in whole grains, vegetables, and fruits. Focus on monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats instead of unhealthy, saturated and "trans" fats.
  4. Take a daily multivitamin, such as Revercel's VitaThera™, and be sure to get enough calcium and Vitamin D. Revercel's OsteoReplenish™ can meet your daily needs.
  5. Maintain a healthy weight and body shape. Consider one of Age Defy's body-shaping services such as Zerona® or SLIM Liposuction® in conjunction with physical fitness and a healthy diet.
  6. Challenge your mind. Keep learning and trying new mental activities.
  7. Build a strong social network. Friends are associated with better health and longevity.
  8. Follow preventive care and screening guidelines.
  9. Floss, brush, and see your dentist regularly.
  10. De-Stress. Consider taking a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction class at Age Defy. Our next course begins Monday, January 31st.
Remember, creating new habits takes time and energy. Continue encouraging yourself to achieve your goals and you'll be able to keep your Resolutions!

In Good Health,

Arlene Noodleman, MD, MPH
