Permanent Hair Reduction – Laser Hair Removal Houston

Laser Hair Removal is one of the most high-tech, long-lasting hair removal options on the market. The laser emits an invisible, pulsating light that identifies and then kills the melanin, or dark pigment, in the hair. It can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour depending on the amount of the area being treated and generally takes 3 to 4 treatments to achieve successful results.

Laser Hair Removal results vary from patient to patient with an average result of a reduction of approximately 80% hair growth when treatment was administered over four to six appointments. Some patients accomplish a complete hair removal that is permanent while still others may notice very little change in their hair growth.

Hearing From Experience – Houston Plastic Surgery

If you’re in the process of looking for the right plastic surgeon to perform your procedure, you are likely considering a number of variables. First and foremost- you will want to find out what their background is. What is their accreditation, memberships, affiliations, training and education. Secondly, what is their track-record and reputation? What are previous patients and other doctors saying about them?

Patient testimonials are a great way to find out about what the patient experience with that plastic surgeon is like and how the patients felt about every step of the process including their results. Another good way is to look at patient’s Before and After photos. Both of these are available online for our prospective patients to view. We hope you will find through these that Dr. Longo and staff is dedicated to providing quality care and consistent results with every patient.

Houston Facial Fillers

Our skin is the largest human organ. It covers our entire body and battles the elements for our entire lives. It is amazingly durable, but eventually is starts to break down. The wear effects it and it becomes less and less elastic and durable. Fine lines, creases, wrinkles and sagging begin to take the place of smooth, tight skin, particularly in the face and neck. With Houston Facial Fillers, Dr. Longo can take out some of those fine lines, creases, and wrinkles to create a smoother, more youthful looking appearance yet again.

Facial Fillers are just as they sound, “fillers” that get injected into your skin to fill out the creases and wrinkles. It’s basically playing the part that your natural, good fat was playing that gets lost as we age. There are a couple different kind of facial fillers such as Restylane, Radiesse and Juvederm. Dr. Longo will walk you through the pros and cons of each and help you find the right treatment for you. Facial fillers are perfect for patients who desire a more youthful appearance without the risks of invasive surgery and constrictive down time.
