Face Talk: Top 6 Questions Answered About Facial Laser Resurfacing

Houston Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery wants to help navigate and answer the most common questions during a facial laser resurfacing consult. We sat down with our very own Dr. Clayton Moliver to help bring these answers to light. Can all skin types be treated with the fractional CO2 laser? The best skin type to be treated with this laser is pale skin. The darker the skin the more risk for hyperpigmentation. If you are darker pigmented we must be more careful. We will do a test spot if we are at all concerned. It is contraindicated if you’re moderately dark … Continue reading  

Face Talk: The Transformation – What is Laser Resurfacing?

Laser resurfacing has gone through a metamorphosis over the past 25 years. When laser resurfacing first started, it started with CO2 laser resurfacing. This laser was amazing and produced phenomenal results. The CO2 laser started taking the place of what was then phenol peels.

The CO2 laser would take the pigment right out of the face, leaving patients with a pearly white face. Another downside was the healing process. It took … Continue reading  

Stem Cell Facelifts – Effective or Not?

Stem cell facelifts are something that is heavily debated. We hear a lot about stem cells on the news, but what are stem cells? Stem cells are biological cells that are undifferentiated. Meaning that they are not specialized cells yet and can change into any type we want them to become such as blood cells, heart cells, or in our case: skin cells. In a conventional facelift, it requires surgical cutting, lifting, and sewing of sagging skin. However in the stem cell facelift procedure, this is not the case. The procedure is nonsurgical and patients receive injections of fat that … Continue reading  

Facelift – Is it Right For You?

In our office, we don’t have a one-size-fits-all approach to changing someone’s face. Every person begins with a naturally beautiful and unique look, but over time our corners begin to sag or our skin may develop dark spots. However, we’ve met very few people that need to rebuild a completely new face. Most patients simply need a smoothing here, or a tuck there, to reveal the life below the surface. Our most frequent procedure these days is an MACS-lift (Minimal Access Cranial Suspension lift), which allows for the correction of sagging facial features through a short incision around the ears. In this … Continue reading
