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.
CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing is an aggressive treatment that can transform damaged, dull, and/or aging skin. To restore firmer, clearer, and more beautiful skin, Dr. Sato’s advanced CO2 laser device emits a beam of light energy at the precise wavelength needed to cause controlled microinjuries in the skin.
