Be the Best Version of Yourself This Year: Tips for Choosing the Right Cosmetic Procedure for You

 Be the Best Version of Yourself This Year: Tips for Choosing the Right Cosmetic Procedure for You

You’ve heard about all of the new nonsurgical cosmetic procedures that keep you looking youthful and glowing. But with so many options available, how do you choose? Luckily, you don’t have to.

At Specialists in Dermatology in Houston and The Woodlands, Texas, our experts take time to evaluate your skin type and quality and learn about the kinds of improvements you’d like to make so you can be your best you possible. In the meantime, here’s a summary of the  cosmetic procedures we offer that could be right for you:

Tighten and firm your skin

Gradually, our  skin produces less of key building blocks, such as collagen  (the protein that gives your skin shape and strength) elastin (allows your skin to stretch out and snap back),  and hyaluronic acid or HA, (retains water so your skin looks plump and moist.) With today’s rejuvenation and prejuvenation treatments, you can restore collagen, elastin, and HA to build stronger, more resilient skin.

We recommend:

Chemical peels  

Regular chemical peels remove the top layer of your skin, revealing fresher, newer skin underneath. The peeling process also stimulates collagen production, so that your pores tighten and your skin looks and feels firmer.  

Juvéderm® fillers

The Juvéderm collection of injectable dermal fillers is made of HA, which allows your skin to retain water so that it’s plump and juicy. Our dermatologists use Juvéderm Voluma to create  firmness and lift in your cheeks and midface. If you’d like fuller, more shapely lips, our doctors use Juvéderm to create a youthful and appealing pout.

Erase visible veins

Sun and aging damage the tiny veins around your nose, elsewhere on your face, leading to the visible veins known as spider veins

We recommend:

Sclerotherapy

Our doctors use sclerotherapy to erase spider veins, rosacea veins, and other visible veins. After your sclerotherapy treatment, you’ll immediately notice clearer skin that’s virtually spider-vein free.

Smooth out your skin

Wrinkles and folds can be a thing of the past, with revolutionary injectable treatments. Combine more than one for a “liquid facelift.”

We recommend:

Botox® Cosmetic

Botox is an injectable wrinkle treatment for crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead furrows. Botox contains a neuromodulator that stops the dynamic muscles around your eyes and on your forehead from pushing your skin into folds. Once the muscles smooth out, your wrinkles do, too. If you have extremely deep frown lines, we may also recommend Juvéderm filler to smooth out your skin.

Juvederm

The HA in Juvederm fills out and plumps up the grooves and creases around your mouth and nose. A thin, honey-like type of Juvéderm known as Volbella works well in the tiny perioral wrinkles that form around your lips.

Replenish your hair

Both men and women lose hair as they age, due to changes in their hormonal balance. Years ago, your only remedies were hair transplants or daily medications. Today, we have a much better cure.

We recommend:

Platelet-rich-plasma therapy

Platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) therapy is made from your own blood. We take just a small amount of blood from your arm and spin it in a special centrifuge to separate out the healing platelets solids, which are filled with growth factors, stem cells, and other healing substances. When injected into areas of your scalp where your hair has thinned, the platelets heal your old and damaged follicles so that they can begin to produce hairs again.
