Despite their destructive cinematic depictions, most lasers are helpful, often found assisting slideshow presentations and playing DVDs for people who aren’t entertained by just staring at the shiny part. Let a laser do some good with this Groupon.
$129 for a Photofacial and Microdermabrasion ($550 Value)
Photofacials use intense pulsed light from the Harmony laser system to reveal smooth, healthy skin. The laser can be tuned to promote overall rejuvenation per skin type, target brown spots or red vessels, or stimulate the production of collagen deep within the dermis to heal scars and firm the skin. A microdermabrasion gently exfoliates damaged cells on the top layers of skin to diminish the appearance of fine lines and age spots. Appointments may last between 60 and 90 minutes.
Cypress Medispa resident physician Dr. Amrit Thandi has experienced the evolution of lasers over the past decade by serving as a Luminary Advisor for Alma Lasers Inc.—the brand she still relies on to tighten slack skin, remove hair, and rejuvenate damaged complexions. The technology helps her maintain a practice that avoids invasive procedures, although she can perform minor surgeries at her office or refer patients to other specialists within the North Cypress Medical Center.
A graduate of Dayanand Medical College in Punjab, India, Dr. Thandi completed her residency in family practice at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Today, she practices general medicine and performs cosmetic enhancements with equal care aided by an aesthetician and a medical assistant. Dr. Thandi meets with each of her patients and has a hand in every procedure, from cosmetic injections to preventative care exams. The two aspects of the practice seem to balance out. Gentle body-sculpting treatments can be incorporated into a weight management regime, and up-to-date medical acuity can address dermatological concerns such as psoriasis or an embarrassing tattoo of the Pythagorean theorem.
