Have you noticed pesky veins popping up along your legs? Both spider and varicose veins are often caused by genetics, which means there is not much you can do to prevent them. However, there are ways that they can be treated. If you are ready to wear shorts and dresses with confidence all year long, Allegany Vein Clinic can help! At our vein clinic, we offer a wide selection of vein treatments to eliminate spider and varicose veins.
Spider Vein Treatment
Spider veins are small red or blue veins that can spread across the legs, ankles, and even the face. At our practice, we can treat spider veins with laser or sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy involves injecting the vein with medicine that dissolves the vein away. Laser treatments can cause veins to die off and disappear.
Varicose Vein Treatment
Varicose veins are found in the legs or ankles and have a bulging appearance. These veins often cause itching, pain, and a feeling of heaviness. At our vein clinic, we treat varicose veins with sclerotherapy, endovenous laser treatment, or ambulatory phlebectomy. Endovenous laser treatment causes veins to close, and eventually disappear. Ambulatory phlebectomy is a procedure that involves removing the vein through small incisions.

The first step towards youthful looking legs is to schedule a consultation.

Do you have a double chin? If so, you’re not alone! Many adults suffer from a double chin, also known as submental fullness, despite living healthy lifestyles. While weight gain can cause submental fullness, it can also be caused by aging and genetics, which means it will stick around no matter how many miles you run. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your double chin, but don’t want to undergo invasive surgery, Kybella may be the answer.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is a nonsurgical way to eliminate submental fat. This injectable treatment contains synthetic deoxycholic acid, which naturally occurs in the body to break down and absorb fat. When Kybella is injected into a double chin, fat cells are destroyed and can no longer store fat, meaning long-lasting results. During your Kybella treatment in Cumberland, one of our nurse injectors will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area. This will ensure that you are comfortable during treatment. Then, Kybella will be administered in multiple small injections. The number of injections will depend on the amount of submental fat you would like to eliminate. One treatment session usually takes only 15-20 minutes to complete.

After a long summer in the sun, your skin will often show some signs of wear or damage. Now that the weather is growing cooler and your time in the sun will be reduced, this is the perfect time to consider chemical peels to help you achieve a clearer, more youthful complexion.
Here at Allegany Plastic Surgery, we offer two types of chemical peels: ZO 3-Step Peel and the controlled depth chemical. Chemical peels are great for the reversing of skin aging and sun damage. The acids in the chemical peels increase cell turnover in the skin, revealing a fresher complexion.
ZO 3-Step Peel
This peel is a simple peel that can be used for unwanted pigmentation and minor skin aging. This peel may be perfect for the younger patient or someone with a more sensitive skin type. Like most peels, your skin care practitioner will be able to customize your treatment to your skin by adjusting the application time before the solution is neutralized.
Controlled Depth Chemical Peel
The Controlled Depth Chemical Peel is medium depth peel that addresses both the epidermis and dermis. This peel is more advanced in comparison to superficial peels that do not penetrate any deeper than the epidermis. This type of peel is better for the more dramatic signs of aging due to its potential for a deeper reach.
