Revive Tired Winter Skin with Laser Therapy

While winters around the Houston area may not typically involve blizzards and freezing temperatures, the colder, drier air can still make your skin look a little worse for the wear. As spring approaches, why not revitalize your skin with one of our innovative laser treatments?

At McHugh Plastic Surgery, Dr. Thomas McHugh not only offers surgical solutions for most of your cosmetic concerns, he’s also equipped with some of the most advanced laser therapies on the market. So, if you’d prefer to bring a more youthful appearance to your face without surgery, we have the right tools for the job.

Here’s a look at how Dr. McHugh can revive tired winter skin with our laser therapy treatments.

Tighten and lift with Ultherapy®

If your skin is starting to succumb to gravity, we offer Ultherapy, which is an FDA-cleared, noninvasive procedure that lifts and tightens your skin. Dr. McHugh uses the cutting-edge Ultherapy system to address sagging skin on your neck, chin, and brow, as well as improve the lines and wrinkles that develop on your décolletage area (your upper chest).

The technology relies on sound waves (ultrasound) which travel below the surface of your skin to induce collagen production. Collagen is the protein responsible for the support in your tissue, so by reawakening this valuable resource, Ultherapy treatments can tone and lift your skin, smoothing out your wrinkles at the same time.

In addition to using ultrasound to deliver therapeutic energy into your dermis, Dr. McHugh can visualize your treatment area using the same technology, ensuring that he targets the right depth and areas for maximum results.

Speaking of results, those develop over the weeks following your Ultherapy treatment as new collagen comes online to lift and support your skin.

Give your skin a new surface

If you’d like to reduce fine lines and wrinkles on your face or improve your skin’s texture, Dr. McHugh may recommend Active FX®. This system uses fractional CO2 laser technology to ablate the surface of your skin, making way for newer, healthier skin to take its place. The energy also travels deeper into your tissue where it spurs a collagen response, which further lifts and smooths out your wrinkles and evens out your skin.

Going deeper

If you have deep lines, creases, or acne scarring, Dr. McHugh may turn to Deep FX®, which also delivers fractional CO2 energy into your tissue. This resurfacing solution clears away tired and damaged skin cells, as well as tough scar tissue, while also stimulating your skin’s natural healing response. This response comes in the form of the all-important collagen, which we’ve discussed above.

Between removing surface issues and calling on renewed support from below, Deep FX® can tackle the more advanced signs of aging, leaving you looking years younger.

With all of these laser solutions, you can expect your final results in about 6-12 weeks after your treatment, which is why Dr. McHugh recommends getting started now so that you’re ready to face the warmer months with fresh, vibrant skin. Simply contact the office in The Woodlands, Texas, to get started.
