Relax–and rejuvenate your skin–at SUBTLchanges
Welcome to SUBTLchanges—A quiet space in a busy place
At the Houston Center for Plastic Surgery, we’ve created an oasis offering you medically supervised skin care with a spa ambiance. Our licensed aesthetician, Marla Cook, will evaluate your skin and customize a refreshing treatment regimen especially for you.
Rejuvenate your complexion with a medical facial
“Our medical facials use a combination of physician-strength products, aromatherapy, deep cleansing and micro-exfoliation—even a massage,” Marla explains. “Come in and see how refreshed you’ll look and feel after you pamper yourself with a clinical facial.”
Medical microdermabrasion: The secret to softer skin
Is your skin’s texture rough or uneven? Medical microdermabrasion is a safe exfoliation treatment that gently:
- Reduces fine lines
- Refines pores
- Lightens red and brown spots
- Diminishes scars
“Microdermabrasion uses tiny particles to gently abrade and rub off the top layer of skin,” Marla explains. “Then the dead skin particles are simply vacuumed away. This process stimulates your skin’s production of new cells and skin-firming collagen.
“Your microdermabrasion treatment also includes a customized facial masque and massage,” she adds. “I will advise you on the number of treatments you will need for best results. Most people need a series of six to eight microdermabrasion sessions.”
Have unwanted facial hair?
Facial hair can be embarrassing, but did you know that even excess “peach fuzz”—known clinically as vellus hair—can trap oil and dirt, which can lead to other skin problems? Excess vellus hair can also make your facial cleanser less effective.
