Affordable Laser & MedSpa's technicians usher in the next generation of aesthetic trends by surfing the crest of beauty technology. At two locations, they draw upon an arsenal of lasers, SkinCeuticals serums, and beauty injectables to help reverse time's effects on the face and to carve bodies into more slender, smoother versions of themselves. Their Candela laser systems, for example, remove unwanted hair from all skin types by penetrating the epidermal surface without damage and heating up the hair root. And that targeted efficiency continues throughout their other treatments, such as LipoDissolve, which uses microinjections to break down localized fat deposits, and microdermabrasion, in which a diamond-tipped wand exfoliates the very outer layer of skin cells to leave faces smoother and more radiant than Don Juan wearing a fluorescent leisure suit.
Helmed by board-certified physician and skincare specialist Dr. Naz Keshwani, the team at Med-Cure Anti-Aging & Skin Care performs the latest minimally invasive aesthetic and weight-loss procedures. The doc prescribes a spectrum of laser procedures for skin issues, including spider- and varicose-vein treatments, laser hair or tattoo removal, and a Blu-U acne treatment that is designed to safely kill blemish-causing bacteria in the skin. FDA-approved injectables such as Botox and Juvederm smooth out lines and wrinkles webbed across the face, and potent chemical peels work to reverse the effects of sun damage or spending too long watching food cook in the microwave.
The team works with clients on general health issues, too—overweight individuals can sit down with Dr. Keshwani for a weight-loss consultation, complete with bloodwork and metabolism-boosting injections. Women can benefit from bio-identical hormone therapy—made from plant-derived hormones—which can help alleviate the ailments of menopause, including slowed metabolism, hot flashes, and even osteoporosis and heart disease.
The Medispa Institute is led by not one, but two professionals who are experts in their fields: medical director Dr. Ban A. Vu and aesthetic director Bich Ngoc Nguyen. Dr. Vu has been practicing cosmetic surgery in the Houston area for more than 20 years and specializes in procedures for the Asian face and body.
The duo helms a team rounded out by highly trained laser technicians who are all members of the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery, including Certified Medical Laser Safety Operator Mai Pham. Pham and her fellow staffers are particularly skilled in the treatment of Asian and ethnic skin and offer services ranging from permanent makeup and facials to blue-light therapy. They can address virtually any skin issue with laser technology, including unwanted hair, veins, or age spots—all within a clean, white-on-white facility.
At Beauty & Beyond Skin Care Center, clients don't need to resort to surgery for a younger look. That's because the professional staff slows the aging process through a spread of non-invasive procedures. The non-surgical facial employs microcurrent technology to zap wrinkles and fine lines, and the microdermabrasion uses tiny crystals to slough away dead skin cells, revealing smooth skin that may cause clients to be mistaken for majestic dolphins. Other services, such as threading and henna tattoos, keep clients looking their best, helping the beautifying hotspot to win awards from Talk of the Town Texas for Excellence in Customer Satisfaction and the U.S. Commerce Association for Facial Skin Care and Treatments.
Champa's Creations Day Spa combines the relaxing arts of hair-, nail-, and skincare under one roof. In addition to shearing overgrown strands, stylists boost shine with house-made conditioning treatments customized to individual hair type, add luminous full or partial highlights, and iron out curly tops with thermal reconditioning treatments. The salon’s nail technicians stay equally busy, primping fingers and toes before decorating cuticles with classic paint jobs, artificial nails, or shellac gel that lasts up to two weeks without chipping or turning hands invisible. Meanwhile, aestheticians man private rooms, where they administer facials that target acne hotspots or collagen treatments designed to spur cellular regeneration. Aside from showcasing outer beauty, the crew also coaxes out internal relaxation with soothing Swedish and aromatherapy massages and indulgent body wraps.
