At the Center for Aesthetic and Laser Medicine in Tyler, Texas, we offer a variety of cosmetic services to keep your skin looking young and healthy.
Contact us to schedule a consultation regarding any of the following procedures:
Dermal fillers are used to help replace volume lost in facial tissue. The fillers, a gel-like substance, are injected underneath the skin to restore lost volume, soften creases, smooth lines or enhance facial contours. The results from most fillers typically last about six months to a year. Our products include Juvéderm, Restalyne and Sculptra.

Facial neuromodulators are used to relax the muscles in the upper third of the face and to smooth out wrinkles. The treatment is injected in the problem area — around the eyes, between the eyes, across the forehead. It can also be applied to the neck muscles to help reduce banding. The results from neuromodulators typically last about four to six months. We offer Botox and Dysport in the office.
Laser hair removal is a noninvasive procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light to penetrate hair follicles. The pigment in actively growing hair follicles absorbs the light, which damages the follicle and inhibits future hair growth. Several laser hair removal treatments are often required to provide desired hair reduction. The technique is effective in slowing hair growth, but there is no guarantee of permanent hair removal. Some patients seek periodic maintenance treatments.

Microneedling is a nonsurgical procedure in which tiny needles are applied to the top layer of skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing process to create collagen and elastin. The ultimate result is improved skin texture with minimized fine lines and wrinkles. Patients often seek treatment for stretch marks and acne scars.

HydraFacial is a noninvasive technique that uses water and serums applied directly to the face to remove dead skin cells and impurities. The treatment takes as little as 30 minutes, and there is no scarring. Many patients choose to receive a HydraFacial once a month for improved skin tone and to decrease the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and brown spots.
An Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment helps to renew the skin. The focused laser light is filtered to meet your individual needs and goals. IPL can be used to remove age spots and birthmarks, to help reduce fine lines by lifting and tightening the skin, to rejuvenate sun-damaged skin and to minimize visible veins, acne scars and effects of rosacea. Because the IPL is targeted for each patient, the treatment works for all skin tones. Multiple treatments may be required to meet your goals.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy offers hope for patients seeking hair growth and facial rejuvenation. Blood is withdrawn from the patient. That blood is then centrifuged to gather a concentration of platelets. The platelet-rich plasma is then injected directly to areas of concern, promoting growth and healing in the face and scalp.

Kybella injections can help to improve the appearance and profile of fat below the chin, called submental fullness and commonly known as a “double chin.” During each treatment, a patient receives multiple injections of Kybella at the site. The acid in Kybella helps to destroy fat cells. The number of treatments needed depends on your profile, your goals and our recommendations.

CoolSculpting is a noninvasive technique that crystallizes (or “freezes”) fat deposits, as an alternative to liposuction. The crystallized fat cells are eventually processed by the body and released. During the procedure, the CoolSculpting applicator is placed on the skin at the location of the targeted fat deposits. The procedure can take up to two to three hours.

A chemical peel, typically used on the face, neck or hands, can improve the texture and tone of skin. A chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the damaged outer layers. Patients often seek chemical peels for skin that has been damaged by acne, sun exposure, fine lines and wrinkles and irregular skin pigmentation.

Laser tattoo removal uses high-intensity laser energy to penetrate the epidermis and target the tattoo’s pigment. The laser breaks up the pigment into smaller particles, which the body later excretes or metabolizes. Most tattoos require multiple treatments for full removal, as layers of ink are treated separately, and the skin needs to heal between laser applications.

Pellevé is a noninvasive solution for patients seeking younger-looking skin. The procedure uses radio frequency to stimulate the growth of new collagen under the skin. When the body produces new collagen, skin appears tighter with reduced wrinkles. Patients often seek multiple treatments for the best results.
