The Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Centers of Houston medical director Dr. Mike A. Pappolla and his team serve as beauty vigilantes, protecting patients' exteriors and hunting down signs of aging with advanced treatments and SkinCeuticals skincare products. During complimentary consultations, the staff and patients discuss their aesthetic goals and any problem areas, such as acne and sunspots, before divulging their favorite superhero and getting ready to embark on a custom-tailored beauty regimen. The office's stable of advanced skin-therapy equipment includes laser and radio-frequency systems, IPL photofacial systems, elōs acne-therapy machines, dermal-filler injections, and lipodissolve apparatuses.
At Dermagenix Medical Spa, Dr. H. Kim Vo and her team of nurses and medical aestheticians rejuvenate their patients' skin the same way they would their own. "Every morning," Vo explains to Total Body Magazine, "I put on Dermagenix SPF 24." Her faith in the Dermagenix line doesn't stop there. "I exfoliate with Dermagenix foaming facial refiner," she continues. "At night, I use Dermagenix oil-free hydrating fluid."
An anti-aging specialist who personally uses their own products is a strong endorsement, and Dr. Vo and her staff further ensure that each treatment is carried out with care by beginning each one with a complimentary consultation. Whether it’s laser hair removal, a chemical peel, or an IPL photofacial, one of the onsite physicians or Vo herself oversees each procedure.
At Casablanca Anti-Aging & Laser Centre, technicians call upon their extensive training to bring clients the newest innovations in aesthetic procedures. Clients rely on them to permanently laser off unwanted hair, revitalize skin with chemical peels and photofacials, and pump up lips with injectable fillers or guided bee stings. Aside from manually improving exteriors, the doc and his staff also help visitors help themselves by doling out nutritional advice and creating personalized meal and exercise plans.
Utopia Plastic Surgery and MedSpa's Dr. Franklin Rose has displayed his expertise on Dr. Phil and MTV's I Want a Famous Face. At his clinic, the doctor enhances clients' aesthetic appeal and reverses the aging process with advanced medical and cosmetic treatments. Along with a team of aestheticians, the doctor helps smooth complexions with classic facials and advanced services such as infrared light treatments, which stimulate the production of collagen deep within the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The skilled technicians can also use dermal fillers and Botox to relax wrinkles and achieve smoother eyes, foreheads, and mouths.
Though it does offer the light-based defoliation mentioned in its name, Debbie's Laser Hair Removal accomplishes much more than fuzz-free skin. Their aesthetic professionals are ready to help clients with every aspect of their appearance, offering a huge range of beauty-bolstering treatments, including spider vein therapy, wrinkle-smoothing Botox, and face-rejuvenating microdermabrasions. Those who do wish to banish hair can avail themselves of the high-tech LightSheer Duet laser treatment, whose pulses of high-powered energy shut down follicle growth and smooth skin more effectively than shaving or lamination.
Since completing his residency in obstetrics and gynecology more than 20 years ago, Dr. James Kern has helped women maintain their inner well-being. Now, with the addition of medical aesthetics, Kern helps men and women alike showcase their outer beauty through both surgical and noninvasive procedures, from Botox to weight loss. 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.
