With So Many Options, How Do I Choose?

With so many non-surgical options for sprucing up the face and body, it’s a challenge to know what to do, when to do it, and how one’s money is best spent.  Most patients don’t have unlimited funds for cosmetic procedures, so it’s important that they invest in options that will best meet their personal goals.  At West Houston Dermatology Laser & Skincare Center, Dr. Stephen Mahoney and his staff are dedicated to helping patients do just that, by: guiding them through cosmetic options for the face and body; making individual recommendations; and, helping them get the most out of their investment.  We find that many women and men in their late 40’s and early 50’s begin to seriously consider cosmetic dermatology options, and even non-surgical body contouring such as CoolSculpting.  One challenge is the volume of information available, but more importantly, the quality and potential bias of the information.   Another challenge can be deciding which procedure(s) to choose.  This is precisely why West Houston Dermatology Laser & Skincare Center offers patient consultations.  During this time we get to know the patient.  We talk about their goals and expectations, and then make recommendations for realistic solutions.  While there is a minimal fee for the consultation, if the patient elects a cosmetic dermatology or CoolSculpting procedure within a specific period of time, then the fee is applied to the cost of the service.  Our medical professionals understand that some patients are shy about asking questions regarding the procedures or even discussing the cost.  The consultation provides a private, professional setting for our patients to ask their questions and learn about the best procedures for his or her needs.  West Houston Dermatology Laser & Skincare Center offers a variety of cosmetic dermatology services such as BOTOX ®, dermal fillers, photo facials, laser skin resurfacing, Ultherapy, and many more.  We pride ourselves on being professional and candid with patients.  For more information on scheduling a consultation, please contact our office.
