Anderson Cosmetic and Vein Institute provides expert vein treatment in Cincinnati and the tri-state area, and is dedicated to offering our patients safe, effective and affordable solutions to many non-surgical cosmetic concerns. Anderson Cosmetic and Vein Institute in Cincinnati, Ohio offers many procedures that can assist you to " Take Care of You." These treatments include:
The occurrence of acne is often attributed to hormones and oil production
as well as genetic factors and pore-blocking debris. Stress may also trigger acne breakouts.
A variety of acne treatment options exist because there is no single acne treatment that works best for every patient.
Some of these options include physician-grade products, peels, dermaplaning and microdermabrasion.
Additional acne treatments used at Anderson Cosmetic and Vein Institute utilize blue-wavelength light
offered in two different treatments, the Blu U Light and Revitalight. These painless procedures use blue wavelengths of light to kill the bacteria that causes acne. Typically, a series of treatments is needed for the best results.
Basic Types of Acne
Acne vulgaris, a skin condition commonly known as acne, is characterized by the occurrence of pimples on the face, back, or chest. There are two basic types of acne:
which includes blackheads (open comedones), whiteheads (soft closed comedones), and milia (hard closed comedones)
which includes pustules, papules, nodules, and cysts.
Birthmarks, Sun and Age Spots
Age Spots and Brown Spots in Cincinnati, OH at Anderson Cosmetic and Vein Institute
Using the MultiLight PhotoDerm VL/PL
Anderson Cosmetic and Vein Institute offers experienced age spot removal in Cincinnati, as well as removal of sun spots, birthmarks, liver spots, and freckles.
The MultiLight is an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) system that produces a variety of wavelengths of light for treating the skin.
By using wavelengths that are absorbed by the pigment of the undesired spot, the MultiLight breaks the pigment into smaller pieces. Some pieces are absorbed by the body and some move to the surface of the skin. This makes the spot look darker for 5 to 14 days, until the skin flakes off naturally. The spot will continue to fade for up to 4 to 8 weeks, and can be retreated. More than one treatment may be needed. The IPL feels like a rubber band snap.
Faces and hands are the most popular treatment sites, but any area of the body can be treated.
The most commonly treated birthmarks are café-au-lait, which are brownish, and port wine stains, which are red or pink, composed of veins near the surface, and can be flat or thick. We offer years of experience for age spot removal in Cincinnati.
Large, raised, or unusual pigmented spots should be checked by a dermatologist prior to treatment.
This includes those with irregular coloring, texture, or shape.
Treatment ranges in cost from $150 to $350 per session.
You will receive excellent, experienced Botox CosmeticR treatment at Anderson Cosmetic and Vein Institute of Cincinnati.
Botox is one of the hottest trends in cosmetic medicine today, and with good reason. The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, often referred to by its product name Botox, is a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, and crows feet.
Botox works by blocking the nerve impulses that cause wrinkles,
relaxing the facial muscles to give the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Studies have also shown that Botox is effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
Botox is temporary, lasting 3 to 4 months with the first treatment.
In some cases, results will last longer with repeated treatment, as the muscles weaken due to lack of use. Treatment feels like a small needle stick, with some patients feeling a slight stinging for a few seconds. Bruising seldom occurs, and side effects are minimal.
Facial Fillers: Juvederm & Radiesse
If you are seeking Injectable Collagen in Cincinnati, we recommend the modern facial fillers that are synthetically produced, such as JuvedermTM and RadiesseTM.
Facial fillers consist of lab-created substances that mimic tissues in the body, which means they are extremely well-tolerated by patients.
Injectable fillers such as Juvederm and Radiesse have replaced Collagen in Cincinnati markets. These newer fillers are used to treat wrinkles in the lower portion of the face, such as the creases that run from the base of the nose to the outside of the lip (nasolabial folds), creases that extend downward from the corners of the mouth (marionette lines), as well as chin, jaw line, cheek, and lip augmentation.
In the case of Juvederm, the substance used is Hyaluronic Acid
or HA, a common component of the dermis (along with collagen and elastin) and the body's own connective tissues. HA retains water like a sponge, absorbing more than 1000 times its weight. For Radiesse, the substance is Calcium Hydroxyapatite, which is a natural component of bones and teeth.
Because both Calcium Hydroxyapetite and Hyaluronic Acid exist organically
in the body allergic and other reactions are rarely seen with Juvederm and Radiesse.
FAQ For Injectable Fillers/Collagen in Cincinnati
What are the differences between the products?
Juvederm is a softer product, so it can be injected through smaller needles, making it a good choice for lips. Radiesse, on the other hand, is thicker, and is injected a little deeper, so it is used in areas where more filler is desired. Results from Radiesse often last a year or longer.
Are injectable fillers better than Botox?
Fillers and Botox are used differently. Botox relaxes muscles that cause creases, usually in the upper 1/3 of the face, whereas fillers are used to plump up creases in areas where relaxing the muscles is undesirable, such as the lower 2/3 of the face.
What is the cost?
The price for treatment with injectable fillers in Cincinnati is set by the cost of a syringe of the product and the number of syringes it takes to treat the individual patient. Each product is packaged in different amounts with a different price, and results last different amounts of time, so all these factors are taken into account. Juvederm starts at $480/syringe and Radiesse at $600/syringe. We do offer a discounted price when more than one syringe is used.
Facial Veins & Rosacea
Facial Veins and Rosacea in Cincinnati, OH at Anderson Cosmetic and Vein Institute.
We offer expert treatment of facial veins and rosacea in Cincinnati.
Veins, rosacea, and redness are common concerns for many men and women, and are effectively treated with the MultiLight PhotoDerm VL/PL. The MultiLight is an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) system that produces a variety of wavelengths of light for treating the skin. A wavelength is chosen to target the pigment within the blood cells in the vessels of the unwanted veins. The pulse of light is absorbed by the pigment, which heats the vein, causing it to shrink or collapse.
Response can either be immediate or occur gradually over 2 to 4 weeks.
More than one treatment is commonly needed. Patients say the treatment feels comparable to a rubber band snap, and topical numbing cream can be used for comfort. This facial redness treatment in Cincinnati can cause temporary redness or swelling of the facial area treated.
We also use the VeinGogh system to treat veins.
This treatment utilizes a tiny probe to send a small energy wave through the vein to shut it down.
Facial veins are often hereditary, and increase with sun exposure and age.
Rosacea is a collection of symptoms including facial flushing, redness, veins, acne, and /or irritation.
Pricing for treatment of facial veins and rosacea ranges from $150 to $350 per session.
The combination of a variety of treatments and products can produce remarkable changes in the appearance of facial skin. We use time-tested light treatments, Facial Rejuvenation: Photojuvenation and PhotoDynamic Therapy, combined with skin care products, skin treatments, Botox Cosmetic and facial fillers to gently give your face the more youthful and healthy boost you're looking for.
Say goodbye to the effects of sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and more.
Thanks to Intense Pulsed Light (IPL™) Photofacial/Fotofacial treatments, gentle skin rejuvenation has never been easier! IPL™ Photorejuvenation and Levulan® Photodynamic Therapy are the latest in modern dermatology. If you are ready to transform red, blotchy skin into a beautiful, radiant complexion, photofacial/fotofacial treatments may be the perfect dermatological procedure for you.
Performed only by trained medical professionals
a photofacial, or “fotofacial,” is a 30-minute procedure involving a machine that emits intense pulses of light to penetrate all layers of the skin. During the photorejuvenation treatment, collagen and blood vessels under the top layer of skin constrict, reducing redness and age lines. A complete IPL™ photofacial/fotofacial treatment requires three to five full-face light sessions, spaced at three-week intervals. Patients report minimal discomfort, and the redness and facial swelling experienced after treatment is short-lived. The effects of a photofacial/fotofacial are gradual but very noticeable, and will take a few weeks following treatment to be fully observed.
IPL™ Photorejuvenation can be used to treat redness caused by rosacea
hyperpigmentation, and facial veins, as well as the fine lines and wrinkles caused by aging or sun damage. Also, if your skin has been blemished by smoking, alcohol use, or hormonal changes, an IPL™ photofacial/fotofacial can smooth and refine your complexion.
IPL treatments are a safe and effective way to reduce signs of aging on the face, neck, chest, and hands.
IPL treatments are customized to each individual's specific skin type and condition, providing the best possible results for each patient.
Any woman OR man who shows the signs of aged and sun-damaged skin is a great candidate for PhotoRejuvenation!
Treatment feels much like a rubber band snap, and topical numbing cream can be used for comfort if needed.
Levulan Blu U PhotoDynamic Therapy
PhotoDynamic Therapy is the use of a topical drug combined with a light source to provide a therapeutic effect for sun-damaged skin.
We offer this Therapy along with Levulan and BluLight or MultiLight IPL. The treatment is ideal for the patient who is seeing signs of photodamage, or damage caused by ultraviolet sun exposure.
For PhotoDynamic Therapy, the skin is thoroughly cleansed, and the Levulan applied using a specially designed sponge applicator.
After an incubation period of approximately 30 minutes, the skin is exposed to the BluLight. There is little to no discomfort with this treatment. The following two days, it is imperative to stay out of direct sunlight or bright lighting, as the skin is still light-sensitive. After a few days, peeling usually occurs, similar to that which follows a sunburn.
A typical treatment program consists of 3 treatments spaced at 3 to 4 week intervals.
PhotoDynamic Therapy and PhotoRejuvenation are often used together in a customized manner to achieve maximum result. Both treatments aim to stimulate collagen production in the skin by heating multiple layers of skin. Finally, incorporation of Physician-grade skin care products is strongly recommended to increase results.

One or more of these procedures may be used to create an effective treatment plan for the individual patient's goals and lifestyle:
Microdermabrasion is effective in minimizing fine lines, "crow's feet," age spots and acne scars, by stimulating the production of new skin cells and collagen.
During microdermabrasion, the hand piece vacuums crystals across the surface of the skin, resulting in a gentle abrasion or "polishing" process. The number of treatments recommended for maximal results can range between 5 and 12, spaced from 1 to 4 weeks apart. Maintenance of results requires periodic treatments after the initial regimen is completed.
Microdermapeel is the combination of Microdermabrasion with a customized chemical peel.
By combining both procedures in one visit the results of both are maximized to increase the skin smoothing and brightening effects.
We suggest you combine microdermabrasion with physician-grade products for maximum benefit.
