At RejuVenus Aesthetics, plastic surgeon Dr. Wilberto Cortés and his crew administer noninvasive cosmetic laser treatments with unrelentingly high standards. Whether concentrated in one zone or distributed among three, the spider-vein laser treatments can help erase dermal Etch-a-Sketches without vigorously shaking patients upside down. For optimal results, up to four iterations may be required of this gentle procedure, which entails virtually no downtime.
Trained as a general surgeon, Dr. Kristi Sumpter, founder of Winds Of Change Cosmetic Surgery, discovered her passion for cosmetic surgery while working with breast cancer patients. It was then that she came to understand the emotional impact physical changes can have on a person. Drawing upon this experience, she takes a caring approach to her work, and has been recognized multiple times by H Texas Magazine as one of Houston's top doctors. Her treatments include liposuction and face-lifts in addition to IPL photofacials and chemical peels, which can restore youthful glows better than swirlies in the Fountain of Youth.
When clearing the body of blemishes, the doctors and certified laser technicians at Inkfree, MD trade caustic chemicals for modern, FDA-approved laser systems. Effective against all ink colors, their tattoo-removal treatments permeate the skin to dissolve ink particles with light from a laser wand. Laser hair removal sessions zap away excess peach fuzz, and laser facials nix sun damage, age spots, and errant freckles. Inkfree, MD's lasers even target sub-surface blemishes, freeing legs from the grip of spider veins and healing toenails made brittle by infections of unsightly, yellowing fungus.
Looking beautiful shouldn't take all day, which is why Apple Lash Studio offers a menu of services that helps clients cut down on their primping time. Mascara can be nixed from one's makeup routine after synthetic-fiber extensions—available in black and glitter-coated styles—add immediate length and volume to lash lines. The naturally curved, semipermanent lashes never interfere with one's other daily activities, including swimming, showering, and sweating, and only take a trained lash specialist up to two hours to apply, one lash at a time, using sterilized equipment. While at the intimate shop, clients can also have unwanted hair quickly removed from their brows, lower legs, and bikini lines.
Clean Canvas Laser’s technicians pulse beams from their Quanta Q-Plus C laser to rid patients of unwanted tattoos. The quick treatments are effective on a wide range of colors—even the typically stubborn green and blue pigments—and generally achieve total removal in 5–15 sessions.

Transformations can take place under the doctor-directed HCG diet, which deploys the HCG pregnancy hormone to speedily release unwanted fat cells in both men and women. Through the Body-Jet liposuction system, water flushes out fat to help sculpt and contour the body more effectively than a slip ‘n’ slide souped up with a pressure washer.
