What's New at Timeless?

Laser Treatments

Laser Lime Light Facial

Treatment of Skin Redness, Tiny Veins, Brown Spots and Sun Damage

What is the Lime Light Facial?
The Lime Light Facial is a new, non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation using LimeLight. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photo damage.

What areas can be treated?
The Lime Light Facial is ideal for any part of your face, neck and décolleté with skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins) or brown spots. Light (low contrast) brown spots, which were previously difficult to resolve, respond very well to treatment.
What does the treatment do?
By selecting Program A, B or C, your practitioner can customize your Lime Light Facial to your skin type and selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. It's the heating of the pigmented brown or red cells that causes the therapeutic effect.

What do treatments feel like?
When the pulse of light is delivered, patients will experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. Gel is recommended to cool the skin before vascular treatments.
Anesthesia or pain medicine is typically not required.

How long will the treatments take?
Treatment time depends on the area of the body being treated. However, most treatments should take less than 1 hour.

How many treatments will I need?
1 to 3 treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sun- damaged skin.

What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following treatment, brown spots will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may be mildly swollen. This typically lasts a few hours and possibly a day or longer. Make-up can be applied to cover the redness.

When will I see results?
Within 1 to 3 weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Diffuse redness or brown spots (telangiectasia) will decrease and your mottled complexion will improve.

Will the spots and redness reappear over time?
New brown spots (telangiectasia) and diffuse redness (Rosacea) may appear with new sun damage; however they too can be treated. Remember to always apply a broad-spectrum of sunscreen when outdoors to minimize sun damage and the appearance of new spots and diffuse redness. Rosacea is chronic and cannot be "cured" with any laser or light source, however its appearance can be improved.

Laser Pearl Fractional

The anti-aging fractional laser for treating photo damaged skin

What is the Pearl Fractional?
Pearl Fractional is a new, volumizing, fractional laser perfected for treating photo damaged skin in just one treatment. Pearl Fractional offers the best combinations of patient experience and recovery time. Patients see improvements in brown spots, sun damage, tone and texture and have a noticeable smoother, brighter complexion.

What does "fractional" mean? How does the Pearl Fractional work?
Fractional therapy describes a treatment that exposes only a fraction of the skin to the laser beam in a pattern of tiny dots. With Pearl Fractional, laser pulses place tiny pricks in the skin in which the columns of damaged tissue are selectively removed, leaving surrounding skin intact. This Treatment stimulates the body's own natural process for creating new collagen, plumping the skin from below and reversing photo aging and other imperfections.

  • Tiny pricks enable safe treatment and a rapid recovery.
  • Deep treatment provides results in a single session
  • Controlled energy means maximum results with a more comfortable patient experience.

How many treatments are recommended?
Most patients will see significant improvement after just one treatment.

Who is a candidate for Pearl Fractional?
Patients with light-to-medium skin tones and skin imperfections (aging, sun damage)

What areas of the face can be treated?
Pearl Fractional can be used on the entire face and is uniquely effective in treating the delicate periorbital (around the eyes) and perioral (around the mouth) areas. Theses areas often show the first signs of aging and can be the most challenging to treat.

How does a Pearl Fractional treatment feel?
Most patients describe the treatment as a series of fast, hot pinches. A topical numbing cream is applied to the skin prior to treatment to alleviate most discomfort.

When will I see results? How soon can I wear make-up?
Many patients see improvement one week after treatment. Maximum results are visible in 1 to 3 months. Patients may apply make-up 5 days after treatment.

Are there any restrictions on my activity after a Pearl Fractional procedure?
After treatment, the skin will appear sunburned and may be slightly swollen. Patients report little or no discomfort post-treatment. During post-care, patients apply ointment to the skin for 4 to 5 days and should limit sun exposure and wear protective clothing.

Can Pearl Fractional be part of a combination therapy?
Many patients have a Pearl Fractional treatment in combination with other existing cosmetic therapies. These include other laser light procedures, such as Pearl, Laser Genesis and LimeLight

How does Pearl Fractional compare to other fractional laser treatments?
Pearl Fractional's unique laser wavelength offers a safe and effective treatment to reverse signs of aging. This combination gives patients dramatic results in a single treatment with an average recovery period of 5 days.

Laser Genesis

Treatment of Wrinkles, Large Pores, Skin Texture and Redness

What is Laser Genesis?
The Laser Genesis procedure utilizes non-invasive laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively treat fine line wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture, diffuse redness and scars. You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation. Treatments can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anesthetics or gel.

What areas can be treated?
Laser Genesis patients report excellent results over their entire faces and necks. Additionally, practitioners may suggest this therapy to diminish recent scars on other parts of the body.

What is diffuse redness?
Diffuse redness is a general appearance of facial redness, such as rosy cheeks. This condition is caused by dilated capillaries (Rosacea). The most commonly affected areas are the nose, forehead and cheeks. Laser Genesis will help your appearance by gently treating and reducing this condition.

What does the procedure feel like?
Patients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin's surface during the procedure as the laser hand piece is moved back and forth about 1/2 inch above your skin. You can immediately return to normal activities, utilizing sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities.

How does Laser Genesis work?
By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin's surface, Laser Genesis stimulates collagen regrowth. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.

What can I expect before the treatment?
You will not need gel, anesthetic cream or ice prior to treatment. Before the actual Laser Genesis treatment, you will be asked to remove your make-up or moisturizers and, in some cases, you may be asked to shave the area to be treated. Your physician will review and assist with all pre-treatment requirements.

How many treatments will I need?
The treatment results are often subtle. On average, you may require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Every patient's condition and needs vary. For more information about your expected results or the number of treatments necessary, consult your beauty consultant.

What are the possible side effects?
Although most patients report few if any side effects, the most common is a slight redness that disappears within a few hours of treatment. Consult your beauty consultant for complete information about the benefits and risks of treatment.

What kind of textural improvements can you expect with Laser Genesis skin therapy?
Over the course of four to five treatments, Laser Genesis can help restore the skin's youthful glow and appearance by smoothing out uneven textures caused by aging, sun damage or scars. You will see a creamier, healthy complexion as large pores are reduced in size, and minor imperfections are diminished. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.

CoolGlide Laser Hair Removal

Treatment for Permanent Hair Reduction

What is CoolGlide Laser Hair Removal?
The CoolGilde is the best laser hair removal System on the market for all Skin types and tones, from light to dark, including tanned patients. Its unique design, longer wavelength, and innovative cooling design, allow extremely effective, safe and permanent results.

What areas can be treated with the CoolGlide?
The CoolGlide can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and back. It can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, nipples, and bikini line.

What do CoolGIlde treatments feel like?
As the name implies, the CoolGlide hand piece cools and soothes as it glides along your skin. When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.

How many treatments will I need?
Most areas require 6-8 treatments. However, the number of CoolGlide treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors - hair thickness, the area treated and your hair's growth cycle. Not all hairs are actively growing at the same time and actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. CoolGlide treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.

What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following your CoolGlide treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment and are not regrowing. Between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave.

Are there any restrictions on my activity after treatment?
Following the treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away, but some redness may occur. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun.

What are the possible side effects?
Although patients experience few side effects, the most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin (i.e. sunburn) which can last for a few hours or less.

How does the CoolGlide compare with other hair removal methods?
Shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams are all temporary methods which must be repeated on a frequent basis. The CoolGlide offers permanent hair reduction for lasting results.

Why choose CoolGlide over other laser hair removal systems?
Using the latest technology in laser hair removal, the CoolGlide can rapidly treat large areas without the limitations of older technologies. The CoolGlide longer wavelength allows it to be used safely and effectively on patients with light or dark skin as well as tanned skin. Unlike other systems, the CoolGlide can treat the fine hair on a woman's upper lip just as easily and effectively as the coarse hair on a man's back. The cooled hand piece increases patient comfort and minimizes the adverse skin reaction commonly seen with other lasers.

Laser Titan

How does the Titan work?
Titan utilizes a safe infrared light to heat the dermis well below the skin's surface. During the procedure, the skin's top surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan hand piece. Titan's light-based platform provides more uniform distribution of energy for heating the deep dermis than other energy sources, such as RF (radio frequency)

What areas respond best to the Titan procedure?
Patients have been successfully treated on many areas of the body. The most common areas treated are the jaw line, under the chin, and the abdomen.

Who can be treated?
Since the Titan procedure heats tissue under the skin's surface, patients of any skin type or age can be treated. Your beauty consultant can advise you if the Titan is right for you.

How many treatments will I need?
Although a single treatment has produced very good results for many patients, it is quite common for patients to have two or three treatments over a few months. You beauty consultant will advise you as to the number and frequent of treatments recommended for optimal results.

What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following the treatment, you may notice some redness and mild swelling in the treated area. Both should dissipate within a few hours. Consult with your beauty consultant for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.

What do treatments feel like?
With each Titan pulse you will feel a brief heating sensation. Some patients are more comfortable taking a mild pain reliever beforehand. Many patients are comfortable without any medication.

CoolGlide Vein Therapy

Treatment of Superficial Face Veins and Blue Leg Veins

How does CoolGlide Vein Therapy work?
The CoolGllde systems deliver pulses of light energy which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin's surface, where it should be. The CoolGlide features a unique design and long wavelength that allows treatment of patients of all skin tones.

How many treatments will I need?
The CoolGlide combines the ideal laser wavelength with the most flexible parameters to deliver a superior vascular laser system. It treats a broad range of vessels from tiny spider veins to deep blue reticular veins quickly, safely, and effectively. Patients with dark, light or tanned skin can experience outstanding results with minimal bruising or blistering.

What types of veins can be treated?
The CoolGlide can remove unsightly veins from all parts of the body. Small, facial veins (or "telangiectasia") can be treated quickly without bruising or complication. Spider veins and large blue leg veins can also be treated with excellent results. Knotty varicose veins are not good candidates. A careful evaluation will help you determine which vessels can be treated and the best course of treatment.

How does this compare to Schlerotherapy?
Your doctor will advise you on the best course of action, but many physicians and patients prefer CoolGlide Vein Therapy because there are no painful injections.

What about blood blisters and port wine stains?
Blood blisters or "hemangiomas" respond very well to CoolGlide Vein Therapy, usually with just one treatment. Patients with port wine stains and other vascular lesions who had given up on finding a solution have been overwhelmed by the success of their CoolGlide vascular treatments. Often, patients find that one or two treatments are sufficient HOWEVER; the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, cob and size of the vessels being treated. Individual results vary.

Do the treatments hurt?
Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the hand piece. A topical anesthetic is typically used prior to treatment. Following the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.

What happens after the treatment?
Following your treatment, some redness or bruising may occur. When larger veins are treated, a tan or brownish pigment may persist for a few weeks or months following treatment. Patients who have vein treatments may be advised to wear support hose for a short period of time.

What are the possible side effects?
Although many patients report few if any side effects, those most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin. These effects typically last for less than 24 hours. Some patients n experience bruising and, in rare instances, blistering may occur. Consult with your medical professional for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.

Are there any restrictions on my activity after treatment?
Patients generally resume most normal activities immediately. However, it is recommended that you avoid vigorous activities such as strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours after treatment. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun.

When will I see results?
Most patients find that the majority of the treated veins have shown significant improvement within two to six weeks of treatment. However, your final results may not be apparent for several months. Overtime, it is possible for new veins to appear, but these too can be removed with the CoolGllde

It's never too late for a second chance... because finding the RIGHT Houston Plastic Surgeon... is priceless!
