Memorial Heights Family Medicine is proud to announce we have obtained the newest technology to provide nonsurgical procedures to achieve beautiful skin. These procedures are short and relatively pain-free with little to no downtime.
FRACTORA: FRACTIONAL LASER RESURFACING
Fractional laser resurfacing vaporizes tissue in a precisely controlled manner to promote new collagen formation and skin rejuvenation. Fractora™ is the most advanced fractional radio-frequency (RF) treatment that delivers RF energy to the skin through an array of pins producing localized heat and small micro-lesion dots in the treatment area. The gentle heat generated by Fractora™ in the sub-dermal tissue promotes collagen restructuring for skin rejuvenation and an improved appearance in the skin. Fractora™ provides anti-aging improvements on skin tone and texture through ablation and skin resurfacing. Ablation of the skin promotes skin resurfacing while untreated skin between the pins promotes faster healing of the treatment tissue.
Fractora™ is most useful for improving scarring, texture, fine or deep wrinkles, sun damage, skin laxity, pigment irregularities and redness. The most common areas of treatment are the face (including the upper and lower eyelids, cheeks, forehead, smile lines, and lines around the mouth) and neck. Fractora™ offers improvements for aging skin that would normally require two, three or even four different technologies.
Of all the methods that can reverse the signs of aging, there is no better treatment than fractional laser skin resurfacing. This latest laser treatment is far more effective than any cream or peel currently available. This is the newest technology to rejuvenate your skin and take years off your appearance.
INTENSE PULSED LIGHT (AKA. PHOTO FACIAL)
Memorial Heights Family Medicine is the first family practice in Houston, TX to offer one of the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) devices on the market, called Lumecca™ IPL. IPL devices, like Lumecca™, use gentle pulses of broad-spectrum light to selectively target and treat skin conditions in light and dark skin, to even out your skin tone. It is the gold standard for the treatment of hyperpigmentation, sun damage, sun spots, freckles and even stimulates collagen rejuvenation for improved skin texture and tone. The most commonly treated areas are the face, neck, chest, forearms, hands, lower legs, back, and shoulders.
With Lumecca™, you can complete your photorejuvenation in an initial series of 2-3 treatments, one every 4 weeks, versus 4-6 with standard IPLs. Depending on the condition of your skin, more treatments may be necessary. Many people maintain their results with an additional maintenance treatment every 6-12 months. You will likely notice positive changes even after your very first session. These gentle, no downtime treatments produce skin that is more uniform in color and has fewer blemishes. IPL treatments can be maximized by using an accompanying topical skin lightening product, retinol or retinoid product, and daily sunscreen.
FORMA (THERMAL SKIN REJUVENATION + SKIN TIGHTENING)
Radio frequency energy heats the skin in a controlled manner to remodel deep collagen and improve the appearance of the skin. It provides optimal skin contraction in the deep layers of the skin that seen as tightening of the skin and improved appearance at the skin’s surface. Forma™ is ideal for the patient seeking a non-invasive and natural looking approach to skin tone, texture irregularities and lifting. Areas for treatment include the face, including the forehead, crows feet, nasolabial folds, smile lines, jowls, and any other areas that need contraction such as the neck. For optimal results, weekly treatments are performed for 6 weeks.
