New Year, New You!

Happy New Year

Happy 2013! The 2012 Holiday season is officially over! Time to take down decorations, write thank-you notes, and tell your family to finally go home… (kidding!). The beginning of a New Year is one of our favorite times of the year at Sugar Land Plastic Surgery. We like to think of it as a chance to start over with a fresh, clean slate. This is a time to focus on you. Be selfish, Christmas is over! The Holiday of “giving” has come to an end so no need to feel guilty. We want to help you feel good about yourself in whatever way we can. A few of the most common New Year’s Resolutions this year include losing weight, eating healthy, taking better care of yourself, increasing self confidence, enjoying life to the fullest, spending more time with family, quit smoking, and becoming better organized. While we can’t help you with the latter few, here are a couple of ways SLPS can assist with making some of your resolutions last!

Laser Hair Removal

Let’s face it, as women, we are basically expected to be like seals when it comes to body hair.  Unfortunately, Mother Nature does not always agree, and occasionally leaves us with a body part that resembles something like a gorilla instead.  Constant shaving, waxing, and other temporary hair removal methods can lead to razor bumps, irritated skin, ingrown hairs, and just plain nastiness.  Imagine never having to shave, wax, pluck, or thread ever again.   Laser hair removal is the real deal and has been FDA approved for “permanent hair reduction” in the United States; the results are unbelievable.  Don’t fall for any more scams, let us help you address your unwanted body hair and zap it off for good.  The Lasers we use at Sugar Land Plastic Surgery are the absolute best on the market with the 2 best wavelengths in the industry.  What does this mean?  A more effective procedure, leading to better results and fewer treatments.  Our Elite laser machines are suitable for all skin types and acceptable for treating the widest range of body parts on the market.

The primary principle behind the laser hair removal method is selective photothermolysis, which takes a specific and calculated wavelength of light and pulse duration for optimal effect on a targeted tissue, and with minimal effect on surrounding tissue.  Lasers aim towards the hair follicle to destroy the chromophore, permanently destroying future hair growth in the early anagen phase.  Since hair grows in phases at different rates, several treatments are necessary for complete results.  Typical treatments elsewhere can be completed in about 8-12 sessions, but with our “Gold Standard” lasers, the same results can be expected in 4-8 sessions.  If you’re thinking about going somewhere else, remember to ALWAYS go to a licensed technician at a doctor’s office, otherwise your results may be less than desirable.  The Florida Board of Medicine has determined that the use of laser devices for cosmetic purposes are considered the practice of medicine, and requires they only be used by a Physician, a Physician’s Assistant under supervision, or an Advanced Registered Nurse.  In Texas, we do not have this regulation, so several places offering laser hair removal services are less than legitimate, possibly leading to detrimental damage… It’s not worth it!

Call Sugar Land Plastic Surgery to set up your laser hair removal sessions and get hairless just in time for next summer!  We currently have an amazing deal – Buy one package for 6 treatments of a selected body part, and get an ADDITIONAL 6 treatment package for a different body part FREE!  Or get 40% off each session if you would prefer to only have one body part treated.  Hurry and call us to reserve your spot!

IPL FotoFacial™

IPL FotoFacial™ is a series of “intense pulsed light” treatments designed to produce healthy, younger looking, radiant skin.  FotoFacial™ can dramatically erase freckles, age spots, spider veins, sun damage, enlarged pores, redness, flushing, and irregular pigmentation.  It can also smooth out fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, lips and forehead.  With the use of this exciting new technology, dramatic improvements can now be accomplished with little or no “downtime” and with very minimal discomfort.  We like to use FotoFacial™ as a part of an anti-aging program in people as young as 20 years old.  Come see us today and let us help you achieve that beautiful, flawless glow you’ve always wanted.

Right now at Sugar Land Plastic Surgery, we are offering 20% off IPL Laser sessions if your appointment is booked by December 15th.  Hurry and call to reserve your spot, perfect timing for the Holidays!

Vein Removal

Spider veins can make beautiful legs look rather unsightly, or as if they belong to someone twice your age.  About 25% of women and 15% of men in the U.S. are unhappy with their spider veins and wish to get rid of them.  Our lasers are capable of both removing the unattractive vein, as well as restoring normal blood flow from mangled valves.  This is extremely important in the vein removal process and keeps them from coming back.  Each spider vein removal treatment takes about 30-45 minutes and has little to no discomfort with no downtime.  Let’s start your treatments this winter for final results by spring!

Right now, purchase a “total vein removal” package for under $1,000!  This will cover the 3 treatments necessary for complete and permanent results.  Call us and reserve your first appointment!

We also offer the BEST laser tattoo removal!  Mention this post and receive 10% OFF each session!
