Under the careful supervision of Dr. Quan Nguyen, BioDerm Skin Care and Laser Center's licensed medical professionals perform a slew of noninvasive cosmetic services. Using IPL laser energy, they eliminate patient's unwanted hair, spider veins, and tattoos, or help them diminish the urge to smoke by directing laser beams at trigger areas, such as ears, faces, hands, or kitten tattoos. Though specializing in laser therapy, they extend their aesthetic reach into the anti-aging cookie jar, performing microdermabrasions and Botox and Restylane injections, along with proffering an array of skincare products, including BioDerm and Obagi.
At Texas Laser Clinic, the staff helps patients refine their skin surfaces with a slew of laser and facial treatments. Armed with the Candela GentleYAG laser, staff members harness energy beams to help uproot body hair and tighten skin. Alternatively, they help freshen complexions during facials that employ various products, such as multivitamin masks procured from the totem poles of ancient Flintstones tribes. The facility's selection of glycolic, salicylic, lactic, and trichloro acetic acids aid chemical peels, and its NovaLash eyelash extensions latch onto lids hair by hair and, like a sample-sized calendar, can last up to two months.
At Hot Wax & Lashes, the staffers favor a high-quality french wax—an exclusive beauty product that can only be purchased from select purveyors or plucked from the vines of enchanted willow trees. While clients lie atop comfortable beds in private rooms, the seasoned aestheticians use this wax to swiftly remove unwanted hair from facial and body areas and leave behind skin that is soft and smooth. But the versatile specialists don’t limit themselves to waxing services—they also offer makeup applications and Xtreme Lash extensions.
Not long after Dr. Kathryn Wood became a board-certified Ob/Gyn specialist in 1990, she began to gravitate toward medical aesthetics. Dr. Wood gathered a team of registered nurses, licensed medical aestheticians, and laser technicians to found Dermalase in 2000.
Today, the team firms up skin with Botox and Juvederm treatments. It also spot-treats fat with body-contouring sessions and resurfaces faces with Fraxel treatments, two services that tend to engender the most gratitude from clients. Most often, medical aestheticians find themselves performing tattoo removals. But for all the lasers and medical technology in the office, one of the medical aestheticians reports that the humble chemical peel is her favorite service to perform "because you get the fastest results for great looking skin!"

Most services at Frisco Laser Clinic are powered by light. At its space within Frisco Family Healthcare, the clinic's certified and licensed laser techs wield their light-beaming handpieces and laser diodes to diminish unwanted hair by damaging follicles and halting their growth. During photofacials, intense pulsed light works to smooth and tone the complexion, targeting signs of aging like a bouncer at a 12-and-under club. Alternatively, acne treatments ease the blemishes of youth with the same pulses of light, which also help to kill bacteria.
Across the nation, Sona MedSpa's staff beautify a range of skin types with the gentle touch of Alma lasers. Sun damage, unwanted hair, and spider veins dissolve under the beams of these cosmetic lasers, which can also resurface complexions. Their lasers also power tattoo removal services, which free skin from unwanted ink. They've got Botox and dermal fillers at their disposal, too.
