What to Expect

Before, During, and After an Fraxel Laser Skin Resurfacing in Houston

1. Attend a One-on-One Consultation.

Begin your laser skin resurfacing session with a one-on-one consultation. We take the time to get to know you—your goals, medical history, skin type, and tone.

2. Approve Your Treatment Plan.

Houston laser skin resurfacing experts Dr. Downey and Dr. Bullocks collaborate on every patient case to advise you on the best options for addressing your concerns. We craft a customized treatment plan that may include a combination of both laser skin resurfacing and other aesthetic treatments to achieve the best possible results.

3. Getting Fraxel Laser Skin Resurfacing.

Before you receive laser skin resurfacing Houston aestheticians will thoroughly clean your skin and apply a topical anesthetic and eye protection. Once numb, we glide the Fraxel handpiece across the treatment area, distributing the light into the targeted pigmentation and vessels. Fraxel comes with an integrated cooling process, which helps keep you comfortable and reduce downtime!

4. Follow Up.

At this time, we can schedule you for follow-up laser skin resurfacing, or any other recommended procedures you'd like to enhance the effects of your initial skin resurfacing.
