The benefits are restoring a smooth and youthful appearance to your face without invasive surgical procedures.

Dermal fillers


DO YOU WANT THOSE DEEP LINES AROUND YOUR MOUTH AND NOSE TO DISAPPEAR OR NEED TO REPLENISH VOLUME IN YOUR MIDFACE OR TO YOUR CHEEK BONES? We offer dermal fillers that instantly smooth away wrinkles, restore volume and give you natural-looking results.

 
Dermal fillers are injectable soft gels designed to immediately reduce wrinkles, plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases and improve the appearance of recessed scars. Like any other drug, they have to be FDA approved before being used clinically. Thus, fillers have a very safe track record in the United States. There are several different types of fillers. Some are used to correct the volume loss related to the aging face, applied deeper under the skin; while others are applied more superficial to correct fine lines and wrinkles for a finished airbrush look.

Over time, the collagen is reabsorbed while the PMMA microspheres are left behind, creating a supportive base that allows more of your own collagen to develop for long lasting effects.
 

belotero balance®

BELOTERO BALANCE is a fine hyaluronic acid gel specially designed to correct age related imperfections of the most superficial skin layer, such as fine lines and winkles around the eyes and mouth, and to reduce the tear trough deformity or "under eye groove."

ear lobe repair


DO YOU HAVE AN EARLOBE THAT WAS TORN FROM AN EARRING BEING PULLED THROUGH IT? You will be relieved to know that this can easily be repaired as an in-office procedure.
Ear lobe repair is a surgical procedure performed under local anesthesia that involves restoration of the natural shape of the ear lobe that has been torn usually with earrings. An earlobe tear may be partial or complete. A partial tear is when the gap is enlarged, but the lobe is not split. Although it is partial, some of these tears can cause severe disfigurement, like in the case of gauges. Complete split refers to ear lobes that have the gap separated, giving it the appearance of two flaps. This also causes a significant disfigurement to the lobe.

The procedure consists of "freshening" the edges of the split by removing a small amount of skin. Then using fine sutures, the split is stitched together restoring the beautiful contour of the lobe. Patients go home immediately after the procedure with flesh colored steri-strips over the incisions. Sutures will be removed in about a week and the ears may be re-pierced six to eight weeks later. Clip-on or magnetic earrings may be worn at four weeks after the procedure. Although some ear lobe tears may heal with time, they often leave visible stretched skin that makes it difficult to be re-pierced. Torn ear lobes can only be successfully repaired with surgery.

who are good candidates for an ear lobe repair?

Someone who has one of the following conditions:
  • A typical split ear lobe
  • Stretched hole from an earring not completely torn through
  • Another split earlobe that wears their earrings in a second upper piercing
  • Someone who wore gauged earrings before and now wants a “normal” earlobe
 

kybella™


ARE YOU BOTHERED BY SUBMENTAL FULLNESS OR A "DOUBLE CHIN"? Kybella is the first and only FDA approved nonsurgical treatment that can dissolve fat underneath the chin.

 
Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as "double chin", is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone. KYBELLA (deoxycholic acid) injection is an injectable treatment that is used to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat). This naturally-occurring molecules in the body aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.

who are good candidates for kybella?

Someone who notices having extra fat under the chin that makes them looks heavier.

Laser face Rejuvenation


DO YOU SEE YOUR FACE GETTING MORE NOTICEABLE SIGNS OF AGING SUCH AS DEEPER LINES AND WRINKLES, SUN SPOTS AND AN INCREASED TIRED LOOK? Recent laser technology has made it possible to aggressively remove superficial aging skin to be replaced by younger healthy skin.
Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center uses Sciton® technology which is the best and safest laser for aggressive and non-aggressive rejuvenation. The best way to rejuvenate the face using laser technology is through a process called resurfacing. There are two modalities to accomplish this rejuvenation effect: ablative and non-ablative.
Laser Face Rejuvenation — Cosmetic Surgery in Frisco, TX
 

ablative

Ablative laser treatment is the removal or evaporation of the outer layer of skin in a very organized fashion causing no damage to the remaining deeper tissues that regenerate and remodel into healthy, beautiful smooth skin. Using laser energy, physicians are able to reach unimaginable deeper layers of cells stimulating tissue contraction and new collagen formation. Likewise, old disorganized collagen is replaced with normal collagen. This organizing event is called remodeling, a process that will continue for up to 12 months, giving the patient a progressive natural younger look. There are two ways of removing or evaporating superficial skin tissue. One is full field ablation and the other is ProFractional or partial ablation.
 

full field resurfacing

Full field ablation removes the entire skin surface to cause deeper and healthier layers of the dermis to surface. Sciton lasers provide a full field skin resurfacing treatment that employs a unique dual-mode erbium laser beam for independent control over the depth of ablation and coagulation for skin tightening with micron precision. This enables the physician with increased control over surgical outcomes. Full ablative skin resurfacing successfully treats wrinkles, scars, a tired look, lines around the mouth and eyes, pigmented lesions and poor skin tone/texture. In other words, it successfully rejuvenates! Our patients love this approach before considering invasive lifting procedures that frequently cause a non-natural look.
 

profractional™ Resurfacing

ProFractional ablation is the partial removal of skin surface that causes a fast recovery due to the rapid healing provided by non-ablated tissues. This allows the physician to reach even deeper layers of skin without causing significant trauma. This technique efficiently treats fine lines, wrinkles, scars and pigmented lesions. Frequently, profractional laser is used in combination with other laser modalities such as MicroLaserPeel (light full field ablation) and BBL (non-ablative laser) to further enhance the final cosmetic result.
 

Microlaserpeel®

MicroLaserPeel (MLP) ablation removes a very thin superficial layer of skin eliminating damaged cells that can give skin a tired, aged look. As the skin heals, fresh cells grow and resurface the treated area to improve texture, tone and color evenness to provide a more youthful appearance. MicroLaserPeel treatments,also known as "the weekend peel," can be applied to the face, neck, chest and hands with great results and minimal downtime.
 

non-Ablative

Non-invasive laser rejuvenation commonly called "photofacial" involves the use of light energy to remove age spots, sun spots, fine wrinkles and a tired look. Many times our patients want to remove age spots only, but in virtue of the use of this technology, there is an overall rejuvenation with minimal downtime.
 

bbl™

Sciton BBL or BroadBand Light is a light energy technology used to rejuvenate the face and treat acne, scars, pigmented and vascular lesions in a non-invasive fashion. This technology also has a rejuvenation effect at the molecular level which is documented by the study from Stanford University in 2012. Because of this effect or the "Forever Young BBL™" effect, Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center is proud to be able to offer rejuvenation technology at a molecular level. Furthermore, the strength of BBL is far superior and more powerful than the commonly used technology called IPL (Intense Pulsed Light.) Thus, if BBL is used consistently in time, patients can look natural and remarkably younger as time goes on.
 

Skin tyte™

Skin Tyte is a non-invasive technique that utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat soft tissue while protecting the skin surface with sapphire contact cooling. Targeted subcutaneous heating causes soft tissue coagulation and collagen contraction. This process initiates the body's natural healing process, resulting in a firmer more youthful skin appearance. The full effect of skin firming treatments can be seen over several subsequent months. In order to increase safety, Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center uses additional state of the art infrared technology to monitor target surfaces. This enables Skin Tyte to be manipulated to increase relevant heat to higher levels in the subcutaneous space. Since there is no downtime, patients may resume their regular activities immediately following treatment. Skin Tyteoffers fast, safe and effective treatments of the face including jowls and around the eyes, neck, hands and abdomen tailored for all skin types without complications.
 

who are good candidates for laser skin resurfacing?

Informed patients with adequate expectations who wish a non-surgical alternative to treat wrinkles, sun spots and a tired look are good candidates for laser skin resurfacing.
 

are there contraindications to laser skin resurfacing?

Yes, patients with keloids, autoimmune diseases, active infections and unrealistic expectations are poor candidates for this procedure.

laser hair removal


ARE YOU A WOMAN OR MAN ON THE GO, TRYING TO JUGGLE YOUR CAREERS AND FAMILY? Hair removal may be an answer to some of your time restraints.
 
Men, as well as woman, can have excess hair on their bodies. Often as they mature, they find undesirable excessive hair growth on certain parts of their body. Laser Hair Removal has become the most popular method and the best solution for permanent hair reduction with no more bumps, stubble or irritation to worry about.

Concentrated pulses of light or laser loosen the hair and disable the cells responsible for growth. Various cooling methods keep the light pulses or laser mild and skin-safe, allowing for more comfortable treatments than electrolysis or waxing. Small areas, such as the underarms or upper lip, can be treated in less than 10 minutes, while larger areas can be treated in under half an hour. Hair can be reduced from virtually any area on the body.
 
Laser Hair Removal — Cosmetic Surgery in Frisco, TX
 
 

who are good candidates for laser hair removal?

Any person older than eighteen years of age with unwanted hair, that is not gray, in areas of the body other than scalp and brow.
 

lip augmentation


DO YOU WANT YOUR LIPS TO LOOK FULLER AND SEXIER PERMANENTLY? Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center also offers a permanent lip implant to achieve those youthful lips that last a lifetime.
 
There is a permanent solution to provide patients with an everlasting voluptuous appearance of the lips as an alternative to temporary injectables with SurgiSil Perma Facial Implant™. These implants are made of a soft, solid silicone base that uses a molding process to create a natural contour with a smooth surface that will not deflate and are available in a variety of sizes to achieve a customized result. SurgiSil Perma Facial Implant™ is a patented, FDA approved device that has undergone extensive clinical testing to ensure its safety and efficacy. Although these implants are permanent, they can be removed or exchanged in unlikely situations where patients change their minds later on or want a different size. At last, there is a lip augmentation that doesn't cause the abnormal Hollywood duck lips.
 

who are good candidates for a lip augmentation?

Someone who would like the following:
  • To create a natural looking, uniform enlargement of their lips
  • A permanent solution to thinning lips
  • To smooth wrinkles around the lips

Neuromodulators


DO YOU HAVE UNWANTED EXPRESSION LINES IN-BETWEEN YOUR EYEBROWS THAT TEND TO MAKE YOU LOOK ANGRY? BOTOX® Cosmetic, DYSPORT® and XEOMIN® will allow you to still smile and frown without those aging lines
 
One of the pillars of an aging face is the development of folds and wrinkles upon expressions. This occurs because our facial muscles are intrinsically attached to the skin. When these muscles contract during expressions, the skin will retract between the eyebrows and crow's feet area, creating an "accordion" affect. Neuromodulators are natural compounds that work blocking the signal that make these muscles contract. Thus, the overlying skin smooths out.

Millions of men and women have realized the benefits of being treated with the neuromodulators BOTOX® Cosmetic, DYSPORT® and XEOMIN®. This simple, non-surgical treatment works by gently applying a few microscopic injections into specific areas of the face which relax the muscles to provide a smooth and even skin surface. The procedure is proven to be effective in bringing back a fresh appearance by lifting your brows and diminishing wrinkles caused by facial expressions.

Neuromodulators have been used for decades changing the lives of men and women around the world making it the most common and safest aesthetic procedure.

silhouette lift™


DO YOU HAVE A TIRED LOOK OR NOTICE JOWLS OR DEEPER FOLDS IN YOUR FACE? If so, the latest technology is available at Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center to help you correct these problems.
 
A Silhouette Lift is a minimally invasive procedure developed to lift the midface, jowls and neck. It utilizes a modern suspension thread technique performed under local anesthesia. A small incision is hidden in the scalp behind the hair line where the sutures are anchored. The results are natural in appearance. Your jowls are lifted making your jaw line sharper and more defined. Because it is minimally invasive, there are no visible scars and minimal bruising. You return to work in less than one week after the surgery. There is virtually no pain after the procedure, although sometimes, you will need mild pain medication for some degree of discomfort.

Patients with minimal sagging skin, mild folds and jowls will benefit from the minimal incision, non-visible scar lifting procedure: Silhouette Lift.
 

who are good candidates for a silhouette lift™?

Men and women in their 40's,50's and 60's who notice sagging in their jowls and neck.
 
Silhouette Lift — Cosmetic Surgery in Frisco, TX
Silhouette Lift — Cosmetic Surgery in Frisco, TX
 
 

how is the recovery period after surgery?

The recovery time is minimal, within days. Pain is mild and easily controlled with conventional analgesics and anti-inflammatories. There is no need for prolonged use of bandages or garments. Patients mostly return to work after 3 or 4 days.
 

what should i expect from the procedure?

You should expect a correction of nasolabial folds, jowls and neck sagginess. When you look at yourself in the mirror while standing, you see some skin sagginess and increased folds. But when you see yourself in the mirror while lying on your back, sagginess and folds correct leaving you with an appearance 5 to 10 years younger. That is the effect you should achieve with a silhouette lift procedure.
 

any other applications of silhouette lift?

Yes, patients with asymmetry from previous surgery or as consequence of an earlier medical condition are suitable candidates for this procedure.

skin tightening


DO YOU HAVE AREAS OF SKIN SAGGINESS ON YOUR FACE, NECK, ARMS, ABDOMEN OR KNEES? If you do, there are various invasive and non-invasive solutions.
 
Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center offers heat based energy technology to tighten and firm sagging skin of different areas of the body, mainly face, neck, abdomen, arms and knees. Energy based skintightening procedures are performed under topical or local anesthesia, without surgical incisions and with minimal downtime.
 
Skin Tightening — Cosmetic Surgery in Frisco, TX
 
 

non-surgical skin tightening procedures we offer

minimally invasive skin tightening: injectable radiofrequency or thermirf ™

ThermiRF is an energy based device that delivers heat under the skin to cause immediate collagen contraction and triggers wound healing that tightens skin andsubcutaneous tissue. It is a minimally invasive technique allows physicians to cause natural contouring of the face, neck and body without surgery. ThermiRFdevice is currently being used for treatment of cellulite to smooth out lumps after liposuction, reduce excessive underarm sweating, tighten loose vaginal skin, reduce double chins, and most commonly, for reduction of wrinkles and loose skin in the lower face and neck. The difference between ThermiRF and previous noninvasive radiofrequency tightening devices is that it deploys the actual energy directly to the fibers under the skin that need to be contracted, sparing the heat sensitive surface of the skin.

Skin tightening occurs when the deep dermal skin reaches a temperature of 47°C or higher. Then, the body senses this as an injury and the healing response is triggered. An intense production of collagen helps generate new collagen resulting in firmer, tighter, more elastic skin. The deep skin and fat layer can tolerate over 50°C without incurring visible burns. The surface skin can only tolerate about 42°C.

ThermiRF has a tiny probe that is introduced underneath the skin through a needle hole. The tip of the probe has an electrode that emits tiny bursts ofradiofrequency energy. The probe has a temperature gauge that allows monitoring of the exact temperature that is being reached at the target. In addition, theThermiRF system utilizes a state of the art thermal camera to continuously monitor the temperature at the surface of the skin. This treatment allows the doctor to safely bring the temperature of the deep skin to the optimal level for skin tightening.
 

non-invasive skin tightening: sciton skin tyte™

Skin Tyte, performed with Sciton technology, is a non-invasive technique that utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat soft tissue while protecting the skin surface with sapphire contact cooling. Targeted subcutaneous heating causes soft tissue coagulation and collagen contraction. This process initiates the body's natural healing process, resulting in a firmer more youthful skin appearance. The full effect of skin firming treatments can be seen over several subsequent months. In order to increase safety, Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center uses additional state of the art infrared technology to monitor target surfaces. This enables Skin Tyte to be manipulated to increase relevant heat to higher levels in the subcutaneous space. Since there is no downtime, patients may resume their regular activities immediately following treatment. Skin Tyte offers fast, safe and effective treatments of the face including jowls and around the eyes, neck, hands and abdomen tailored for all skin types without complications.

3-D Face lift (fat transfer to face)


HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT OF FAT BEING REMOVED FROM ONE AREA OF THE BODY AND BEING TRANSFERRED TO THE FACE IN ORDER TO RESTORE A MORE YOUTHFUL APPEARANCE? If so, you will be pleasantly surprised. It is called the fat transfer procedure.

 
Fat or adipose tissue harvested from sculpted areas of the body can be preserved safely and re-injected in the face in order to re-create its most natural aesthetic shape and restore a youthful appearance. Autologous fat transfer is a common technique used to rejuvenate the face. Furthermore, it has been found that the skin overlying the area of the transfer improves its texture and appearance due to the biologic activity of the new cells. In other words, transferred fat not only provides volume and structure to the recipient site, but also greatly contributes with nutrition and mediators that further enhance the appearance of the overlying skin.
