At Namaste Laser and Medspa, certified laser technicians Cristina M. Alvarez and Nicole Alvarez-Rincon can harness the power of condensed light to remove unwanted hair from nearly any area of the body. The staff also specializes in spider-vein removal and skin tightening, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Medical director Dr. Elvis Torres and clinical director Danielle Steel help clients rejuvenate their bodies and health with health, wellness, and cosmetic services. As a board-certified gynecologic surgeon. certified laser specialist, and authority on bio-identical hormone therapy, Dr. Torres has a toolkit of advanced strategies for dealing with signs of age. The doctor supplements basic skincare services?including facials, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion?with products that help clients retain their youthful glow. In addition to preserving the skin's vitality, the med spa performs a variety of age-defying therapies, including laser hair removal and weight-loss solutions.
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.
Dr. Giraldi and his staff at New Image MD Clinic take pride in the fact that their office isn't a revolving door of patients. To that end, they’ve cultivated a far-reaching list of services ranging from HCG weight-management programs and hormone-replacement therapy to dermal fillers and laser treatments. But the caring doesn't stop once the treatment has ended; maintenance programs that include regular check-ups to ensure clients stay fit and healthy.
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.

As we age, our skin becomes duller and more prone to wrinkles, and at a certain point, it stops responding to nonmedical treatments. These laser treatments remove the topmost layers of the skin to stimulate skin cell turnover, which helps regenerate and replace damaged cells as well as stimulate collagen production. This production yields smoother and tighter skin.
