These days, everything seems to revolve around convenience and comfort. The faster the better – food, cars, construction, fitness gains and treatment results are all notable examples.

During pregnancy, not only are your hormones raging, you also have an increased volume of blood plus the additional weight that pregnancy brings that all lead to increased pressure on your veins. This increased pressure can force them to the surface of the skin to become very visible.

Spider veins (or telangiectasia) commonly form during pregnancy due to hormone changes and the added stress on your veins. Spider veins are a form of vascular lesion which are malformations of veins, capillaries, lymphatic vessels and arteries.

The Science Behind Body Contouring with Skin Tightening

Posted by Andrew on 24-May-2017 11:13:01

Have you ever pondered the body’s incredible potential to heal itself? Our bodies are continually repairing and restoring and modern aesthetic science has harnessed this by developing devices that trigger your body to regenerate in the targeted treatment areas.   

Ageing and weight loss are two key contributors to loose or sagging skin. As we age, our skin loses elasticity as the collagen and elastin becomes weaker and production of new cells slows. Following weight loss, the skin may not entirely shrink back if it has been over-stretched or stretched for a long period of time.

Syneron-Candela has created innovative technology, the VelaShape III, that stimulates your body to produce new collagen and elastin to smooth and tighten skin with the added benefit of body contouring.
