The shades are drawn in a small room, where a lone figure refracts powerful beams of light through garnets and rubies. The light is helmed not by a supervillain bent on the earth's destruction but by one of Sugar Land Laser Tattoo Removal's expert technicians, who aims to obliterate unwanted ink. Wielding the double-laser Astanza system, staff experts combine three wavelengths of light as they fade away single and multicolored tattoos.
Each treatment regimen begins with a consultation to determine how many sessions will be required; depending on tattoos' sizes and hues, some can be removed in two or three 10-minute treatments, whereas others will require further zapping. After each treatment, the sensation of which is commonly described as being flicked by a rubber band, the clinic doles out aftercare advice, such as avoiding the sun and utilizing cold compresses.
A beautiful smile isn’t the only thing Dr. Lance Jue's clients can hope to achieve at his practice. Though the office does provide general and cosmetic dentistry with advanced treatments such as drill-less dentistry and six-month orthodontics, it also provides med-spa services that rejuvenate skin with medical-grade skincare products and laser technology. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels exfoliate top layers to remove dead skin cells and old car parts. Laser light therapy is used to remove unwanted hair and unsightly veins. The office also helps clients lose weight by creating custom regimens that incorporate HCG and a low-calorie diet.
The certificates that line the walls of Sugar Land Plastic Surgery’s consultation room do more than simply confirm Dr. John T. Nguyen's credentials. These frames also provide a small glimpse into the major accomplishments he has achieved since relocating from Saigon to the United States as a child. From attending the University of Texas Medical School to earning board certification to founding Sugar Land Plastic Surgery, Dr. Nguyen has continually built upon his expertise while adding to his educational office decor.
Within the practice’s modern treatment rooms, Dr. Nguyen and his staff work diligently to enhance clients’ natural beauty with surgical and medspa services. All appointments begin with an in-depth consultation and exam to chart the patient’s medical history, current health, and beauty concerns before a technician creates an individualized treatment plan. The office’s Visia skin-analysis system allows for further personalization, providing digital images of the face that reveal concerns such as sun damage and hyperpigmentation. The office also tends to aesthetic needs with cosmetic surgery, dermal fillers, and laser hair and tattoo removal.
Dedicated solely to laser tattoo and laser hair removal, Dr. Tattoff clinics have performed more than 200,000 procedures total, and have garnered national attention from press such as the New York Times and People magazine. The business’s specialized approach relies on experience—procedures are performed by clinicians who have performed thousands of treatments each—and science, which is especially evident through the Kirby-Desai scale. Created in-house, the Kirby-Desai scale enables doctors to accurately determine how many treatments a tattoo needs for complete removal as well as the tattoo’s weight, in case patients want to mail it to their past selves as a warning. Dr. Tattoff devotes similar scrutiny to its laser hair-removal treatments, and the clinic backs both procedures with steadfast guarantees.
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.
