Cosmetic Services Q & A

Houston Family Medical Clinic

How do cosmetic services work?

Cosmetic services are advanced clinically proven treatments that can smooth out your skin and erase years of aging. Some of the most popular cosmetic services offered at Houston Family Medical Clinic are described below.

Botox® injections

Botox injections smooth out your skin by interacting with cell signaling that leads to muscle twitching and contracting. These FDA-approved injectables help your muscles temporarily relax, so your skin can smooth out.

Platelet-rich plasma

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections harness your body’s ability to heal itself. This regenerative therapy works by formulating a rich concentration of healing compounds, known as growth factors.

After a quick blood draw, your aesthetic specialist processes your sample in a centrifuge to help separate your growth factors out. What’s left after the short processing period is your personal platelet-rich plasma.

When injected, growth factors in PRP immediately start rebuilding tissues and realigning new collagen fibers. Over time, all that healthy new skin makes its way to the surface, while older, damaged skin sheds away.

When will I have results after my cosmetic services treatment?

With Botox, you’re probably going to notice a dramatic improvement in your skin’s appearance right after your cosmetic service treatment at Houston Family Medical Clinic. Your skin continues to improve and appear more youthful over the next 48 hours.

Platelet-rich plasma has some downtime. You’re likely going to experience some redness and swelling for the first few days near the injection sites. As your skin continues to heal and build new tissue and collagen, you should begin noticing younger-looking skin in as little as 3-4 weeks, with optimal results around 4-8 weeks.

How long do cosmetic services last?

Cosmetic services offered at Houston Family Medical Clinic are long-lasting. Usually, Botox provides superior anti-aging benefits for up to four months before effects start to fade.

Because PRP is actually stimulating new tissue growth, the results are permanent. You’re still going to continue to age though, so over time, you might notice signs of aging coming back.

Since Botox and PRP treatments offered at Houston Family Medical Clinic are entirely safe, once you notice the benefits wearing off, you can always have another treatment.
