Not everyone's skin is the same. That's why we feature an array of light and laser energy treatments, including fractional laser skin resurfacing, at Houston Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery to customize care and meet the unique needs of each patient. Laser and light-based treatments improve the skin's texture, tone, and coloration, in addition to diminishing the wrinkles and lines that can make you look older than you feel. We also use energy devices for non-surgical body contouring to reduce stubborn pockets of fat.
If you're looking for a medical spa in Greater Houston for cosmetic laser and light treatments, request a consultation online to meet with a member of our aesthetic team, or call (281) 282-9555 to schedule an appointment.

Using the energy of lasers and lights is one of the major advancements in the field of aesthetic medicine. Technological breakthroughs have made laser skin treatments more effective than ever, with little downtime and discomfort. Members of our medspa team are trained to create treatment plans best suited for each patient. We may recommend alternative or additional treatments such as injectables or microneedling to best meet your needs. If you are interested, Dr. Moliver can review facial plastic surgery options with you, as he does in this video.

We use one of the most advanced fractional CO2 lasers, the Lumenis® UltraPulse® laser to perform TotalFX skin rejuvenation treatments. TotalFX combines the benefits of different lasers to get optimal results. The treatment targets both the surface and deeper layers of the skin, removing dead skin cells and promoting the growth of new collagen that results in firmer, more youthful looking skin. Fine lines, wrinkles, and scarring are all diminished through a series of TotalFX treatments.
The combination of ActiveFX and DeepFX CO2 laser skin tightening and resurfacing treatments is considered to be one of the most effective anti-aging procedures available when performed under the supervision of trained and experienced physicians.
Improvements seen after TotalFX treatments include:

The VBeam represents the latest generation of laser procedures, effectively treating skin conditions such as spider veins, rosacea, discolored birthmarks, and hyperpigmentation. This pulsed dye laser is efficient and gentle, quickly alternating bursts of laser energy with a cooling spray. The VBeam selectively targets blood vessels and is safe enough to use on infants.
This patient was treated with the VBeam laser for telangiectasias (facial spider veins).

Intense pulse light is similar to laser skin resurfacing treatments, but uses quick bursts of light energy. The Lumenis IPL transmits light waves through a handpiece that's gently placed on the skin. The light waves are absorbed by tissue, triggering the skin's natural healing processes. IPL treatments are excellent options to reduce the appearance of spider veins and age spots that can show up on the face, chest, or hands.
The treatment regimen typically consists of 4 to 6 treatments administered at 3-week intervals. Although each patient's experience is unique, most people report little discomfort during the procedure and they are able to resume their normal daily routines with little to no interruption.
Laser body contouring is an option we offer for people who have stubborn pockets of fat that don't go away with diet and exercise. The i-LipoXcell laser treatment targets muffin tops, love handles, and other notorious "trouble spots," providing non-surgical fat reduction. Laser treatments can also diminish the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite. Learn more about this innovative treatment.
