Orchid Aesthetics expert technicians work to clear skin of pestilential spider and varicose veins with powerful injections during schlerotherapy treatments, working under the watchful eye of licensed aesthetic physician Dr. Roxana B. Kerns. A skilled hand injects a solution directly into the vein, irritating the lining of the vessel in a targeted attempt to sentence the unwanted skin scribbles to banishment far from the epidermal kingdom. The modern technology may also prevent future spider and varicose veins from forming, aiming to give patients the confidence to don shorts, sleeveless tees, or saran-wrap dresses without embarrassment for years to come. Depending on the number of veins, patients may need anywhere from one to several sessions for optimal results, and support hose must be worn for a period of time following the injections. Pigmentation may occur postprocedure, but like fame and a cat's love, it is not permanent.
Orchid Aesthetics Medical Spa
As a board-certified anesthesiologist and licensed aesthetic physician who has even trained in cosmetic acupuncture, Dr. Roxana B. Kerns, M.D. is well-versed in nearly every type of anti-aging treatment. There's one she doesn't offer, however—invasive surgery. That's because she's mastered a range of techniques that accomplish what was once only achieved through surgical procedures.
For example, instead of subjecting patients to the pain of rhinoplasty or blepharoplasty, Dr. Kerns is able to smooth out the nose's profile with injectable fillers and banish dark circles under the eyes with fat-transfer techniques and laser treatments. She was also selected as an expert injector by the National Laser Institute, making her uniquely qualified to administer Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin injections that target fine lines on the face. Orchid Aesthetics also features an arsenal of laser technology designed to mend aesthetic issues of all types, including wrinkles, sagging skin, hyperpigmentation, unwanted hair, and spider veins.
In her quest to stamp out sun damage, Dr. Kerns recently developed her own line of organic skincare formulas that hydrate, boost collagen production, and reflect UV rays away from the face and onto the nearest pool party.
