Body Contouring

Your life experiences have an effect on your body’s appearance. The way fat is stored on your body changes over time and is highly affected by normal events like weight gain or loss, pregnancy, illness, and aging. When diet and exercise aren’t getting you the results you want, we invite you to explore some of our other options. At Houston Skin Associates, we offer non-surgical body contouring options that will help you make progress towards your goals. Body contouring is a great way to target stubborn fat in some of your body’s “problem areas,” leaving you with a toned, slimmer look. We offer non-invasive and non-surgical procedures that provide excellent results. Call us for a consultation to find out what procedure is best suited for your unique needs.

We offer the following body contouring procedures:

  • Coolmini

    Cool mini treatments freeze fat cells; they break down and eventually die off in a natural process called apoptosis. The remnants of the destroyed fat cells are naturally flushed out of the body. It is the first and only FDA-approved, non-surgical alternative to liposuction treatment for reducing fat under the chin (submental fat).

  • Coolsculpting

    The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure is a non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to reduce stubborn fat that has been resistant to diet and exercise. The results are proven, noticeable, and long-lasting, so you’ll look great from every angle.

Hair Treatments

Whether you’re looking to remove unwanted hair or to invest in hair restoration and growth, Houston Skin Associates has a procedure that will help you get the results you’re looking for. If you’re tired of constantly shaving and waxing and wish you could have smooth, hair-free skin, our laser hair removal treatment is for you. This treatment is designed to remove unwanted hair so you don’t have to spend as much time shaving or waxing. For those of you who are among the millions of Americans who are dealing with hair loss or hair thinning, we also have a solution for you. PRP Stem Cell Hair Restoration is a treatment that will slow further hair loss as well as help you to regrow some of the hair that was already lost within months without downtime. PRP uses one’s own body’s growth factors, activated platelets, and biorestorative molecules, derived from blood plasma, to stimulate hair regrowth. If you are interested in hair reduction or restoration treatments, please call us to set up your free consultation. We’ll explain the procedures available to you and answer any questions you may have.

We offer the following hair treatments:

  • Hair Reduction Treatment

    In our Hair Reduction Treatment, we use the High Speed LightSheer DUET laser. This laser produces a larger beam of highly concentrated light. It uses state-of-the-art diode lasers with vacuum-assist technology to remove unwanted hair with greater speed and comfort than other methods such as plucking, waxing, or shaving. Laser hair removal requires multiple treatments.

  • PRP Stem Cell Hair Restoration

    PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma therapy, is the latest technology in hair restoration/regrowth. Along with other medical hair loss therapies, it is one of few treatments that can offer significant hair regrowth and slowing of further hair loss in a matter of months rather than years. PRP uses one’s own body’s growth factors: activated platelets and biorestorative molecules derived from blood plasma, to stimulate hair regrowth.

Injectables

Over time, the effects of aging, including a reduction in collagen production, lead to visible signs of age, such as wrinkles, sagging, folds, and hollowing areas. If you want to reduce these signs of age and achieve a more youthful look, you may want to consider injectables. We offer various non-surgical injectable treatments that can improve the look of your skin without much recovery time.

The injections themselves are nearly painless and do not require much time to administer. If you have been looking for a quick treatment with noticeable results, injectables are a great alternative to surgery. All injectables are performed by one of our certified staff members. Call us to schedule a complementary consultation or book an appointment today!

We offer the following injectables:

  • Botox and Dysport

    BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport are prescription medicines that are injected into muscles to temporarily improve the look of crow’s feet, forehead lines, and the “elevens” lines in between your eyebrows. BOTOX® and Dysport can be used as corrective and preventive measures for moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles.

    Juvéderm Volbella is used in the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral rhytides, commonly referred to as perioral lines, in adults over the age of 21. In clinical trials, Juvederm Volbella® XC was found to effectively increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of lines around the mouth in a majority of subjects through one year.

  • Juvéderm Vollure XC

    Juvéderm Vollure XC is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that was recently approved by the FDA for the improvement of moderate to severe nasolabial folds. Vollure is known for its long-lasting results, providing improvement in the appearance of smile lines, or “laugh lines,” for months.

  • Dermaplaning

    Dermaplaning is used for exfoliating the epidermis, minimizing fine lines, reducing acne scaring, and ridding dead skin and fine facial hair (peach fuzz) with a surgical blade. Treatment will be needed every 4-6 weeks for maintenance with no down time.

  • Hydro Wand Facial Treatment

    A Hydro Wand Facial Treatment is a microdermabrasion with an infusion of serum. It is similar to the traditional facial. This treatment will provide exfoliation and hydration while infusing serums based on your specific skin needs.

  • Latisse

    LATISSE® solution is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis used to grow eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and darker. Eyelash hypotrichosis is another name for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes. LATISSE® is believed to affect the growth phase of the eyelash hair cycle in 2 ways: first, it increases the length of this phase; and second, it increases the number of hairs in the growth phase.

  • Microblading

    Microblading is a manual “hand” method of permanent cosmetics for your eyebrows that creates extremely fine natural looking hair strokes. The pigment is bladed just below the epidermis and the most shallow part of the dermis, making extremely fine natural looking hair strokes. A very natural result is achieved, as the hairs are bladed into the skin according to the natural hair growth direction. A touch up is included 4-6 weeks after your initial treatment.

  • Microdermabrasion

    Microdermabrasion is a treatment used to exfoliate the skin. Our Crystal Free DiamondTome Wand is what is used during this treatment. The wand removes the dead, outer layer of skin by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips, while vacuuming the dead skin cells away in a clean and controlled manner. This leaves your skin with a smoother texture and promotes the growth of new healthy skin.

  • PRP Microneedling

    PRP Microneedling is a restorative facelift which promotes collagen and elastin production, with the infusion of your own platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) via micro needling pen device. Most patients report that their skin appears rejuvenated as well as fuller, tighter and younger. This is ideal for smoothing fine lines, wrinkles, acne and traumatic scars and stretch marks.

  • PRP Skin Restoration

    PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma therapy, is the latest technology in skin recovery and anti-aging. Along with other skin restoration therapies, it is one of few treatments that can offer significant collagen production and temporarily provide skin with a fuller, tighter and younger look while rejuvenating your skin and improving skin texture, sagging and wrinkles. PRP uses one’s own body’s growth factors, activated platelets, and biorestorative molecules, derived from blood plasma that is then injected into treatment areas.

  • Skin Pen

    Skin Pen works by applying tiny needles to the skin, creating micro-injuries that activate a natural healing response and in turn causes collagen stimulation. This treatment is ideal for candidates looking to treat years of sun damage, improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, hyper-pigmentation and the overall appearance of aging.
