Before advanced facial treatments, women obtained younger-looking complexions by pasting their own baby photos to their face. Save some glue with today’s Groupon for photofacial treatments at Medispa Institute. Choose between the following options:
- For $99, you get one photofacial treatment (a $400 value).
- For $250, you get a package of three photofacial treatments (a $1,000 value).
Under the direction of medical director Dr. Ban Vu, a 30-year cosmetic-surgery veteran, Medispa Institute’s experienced laser technicians help polish and rejuvenate skin surfaces with cutting-edge photofacials. Harnessing intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy to beam photons just below the epidermis, a handpiece sweeps across visages in 30-minute treatments, helping to stimulate new cell growth. Unwanted pigment spots caused by sun damage may rise closer to the surface over the course of several days, where they eventually slough off and migrate back to the sun. With multiple treatments, pores can be tightened, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles can be softened, and broken capillaries can blend into the surrounding skin’s hue.
Treated pelts may feel a slight hot or tingling sensation in the post-treatment hours as stimulated cells begin to regenerate, but nothing to prevent a regularly scheduled routine or high-noon duel. The FDA-approved light baths impart their optimal skin-saving power when performed in sets of five treatments spaced over three-week intervals, though complexions will be noticeably more even-toned after just one.
The Medispa Institute
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.
