Houston Laser Treatments
Dr. Sato also provides laser treatments at her Houston plastic surgery practice. Dr. Sato provides non-surgical Fraxel® laser treatments for skin resurfacing and CO2 Laser treatments.
Fraxel® laser treatments are non-surgical skin resurfacing procedures to rejuvenate the skin. The Fraxel® laser can diminish fine lines and wrinkles, lighten pigmented lesions and melasma, smooth acne scars and rough skin, improve sun damage, shrink enlarged pores, and treat pre-cancerous Actinic Keratosis (AK). Fraxel® therapy is fractionated laser resurfacing, meaning that only a portion or fraction of the skin is treated in a session. The treatment uses a laser beam that penetrates deep into the skin creating thousands of pinpoint channels. The surrounding non-affected tissue then promotes rapid healing. The skin’s healing response to Fraxel® therapy boosts natural collagen production to create firm, youthful, rejuvenated skin for up to 6 months after each treatment. Excellent results can be obtained in just one treatment, but the optimal number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient.
