"Dr. Albright is wonderful!!! I had my mastectomy and expander placed on the same day. When my bandages was removed I was in Aww! He’s work is incredible. I’ve have never been happier and I’m Just getting started. His entire team is awesome as well. Very professional, clean and sterile environment. If you are looking for someone that is meticulous, cutting edge technology, caring, and excellent at what they do, Dr. Albright is your plastic surgeon!"- A.S. / Google / Jun 25, 2020
"Dr. Albright is a great plastic surgeon. He takes the time to answer all of your questions and ensure that you understand everything. My surgery was due to breast cancer and I was terrified that I would never be the same again. To be honest, I look better now at 50 than I have since my first child was born. I have always been VERY modest, but for the First time I am actually proud of my body now. I really attribute it completely to Dr. Albright for his amazing skills. My scars after Diep flap are gone on my breasts ( I scar easily too) and What is left to my scar on my panty line is really on my panty line (how does he do that)? The staff in the office have become like family. They all really care about my health and how I’m doing and feeling. I am so blessed that this experience led me to Dr. Albright and his staff. I trust him completely! I would go no where else!!"- J.H. / Healthgrades / May 05, 2020
Personalize Your Facial
The HydraFacial system is designed to be safe and effective for men and women of all ages and skin types. The procedure will be customized to meet your specific needs. Skin concerns that may be addressed by a HydraFacial include:
- Brown or sun spots
- Chronic or infrequent outbreaks of acne
- Decreased skin elasticity or firmness
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Large or congested pores
- Oily skin
- Rough skin texture
- Uneven or dull skin tone
HydraFacials can be performed in our office in about 30 minutes. The procedure will begin with a thorough consultation to determine the best approach to the facial. Once your plan is complete, you can relax in one of our treatment rooms as your procedure begins. HydraFacials include six main steps: cleansing, exfoliation, pore extraction, hydration, adding nourishment, and protection. These steps are customized to your skin's needs with the appropriate cleansers, level of exfoliation, moisturizers, serums, and other products. A HydraFacial can be further customized with another complementary facial treatment available at our office.
What to Expect with HydraFacial®
If needed, you will be able to reapply makeup following your HydraFacial to cover any redness before you return to your daily routine. You will likely see noticeable skin improvements shortly following your procedure, with full results in a few days. For maintenance of your newly improved skin tone, Dr. Albright recommends getting these treatments in monthly intervals. During your consultation, we can help you schedule future treatments and discuss creating a home skincare routine to keep your complexion healthy in between HydraFacial treatments.
HydraFacial Ideal Candidates
How frequently do I need a facial?
Our team will create a treatment plan during your consultation depending on the current state of your complexion as well as your skin care needs. HydraFacials are safe to be performed as often as you would like. Patients often schedule their HydraFacials a few months apart with traditional facials scheduled in between.
What type of results can I expect?
HydraFacials clean out the pores on a deeper level than a traditional facial. This deep cleansing and highly detailed treatment provide a soft, bright appearance and radiant skin. Patients who continue to care for their skin between sessions will enjoy the most dramatic results.
Can I combine a HydraFacial with other treatments?
Opting to add additional procedures, such as injectable fillers or wrinkle relaxers, can further amplify your natural beauty and dynamic results. Many of our The Woodlands area patients choose to add Dysport, BOTOX, and/or some of our professional-grade skin care products to their treatment plan.
