Skin Rejuvenation Overview
Men and women of any adult age may begin to notice skin irregularities that can creep in due to aging, sun exposure, hormones, or other environmental causes. Skin changes, such as pigmentation, a rougher texture, dull tone, visible pores, age spots, and sun spots, in addition to fine lines and wrinkles, often have us looking in the mirror and searching for ways to rejuvenate our skin. At LCS Medical Spa, serving Seguin, San Marcos, New Braunfels, San Antonio, Austin, Houston and the surrounding areas, our seasoned medical director, Dr. Melanie Carreon, will provide an in-depth skin analysis and develop a customized treatment approach to create a softer, younger, glowing complexion.
Dr. Carreon is known for using a synergistic approach to skin rejuvenation, many times blending together more than one treatment to create optimal, lasting results. We invite you to call our Seguin, TX Medical Spa to learn more.

"I have done my procedure 12/20; I wanted to wait before I submit the review. I love my results; Dr, Carreon did a great job with me, she is a smart lady, the minute I saw her I felt comfortable. The things I mostly like is that your health and safety are number one for them, they are very detailed and organized in a good way. I loved the staff everyone did great. I didn’t loose weight at all but I have flatter tummy and thiner waist; liposuction is not to loose wait y’all, it’s to countor your body. No pain during procedure I was relaxing but I could feel the cold wipes for the disinfectant, it was really cold, I loved the two warm pillows they gave me during procedure. After procedure you’ll experience some discomfort but it wasn’t bad at all. I was worried about pain. I’m much happier with my body, thank you Dr. Carreon, you deserve more that 5 starts ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️."- Z.P. / Google / Feb 27, 2020
"I had smart lipo just about 2 weeks ago. I feel amazing and my confidence is thru the roof already. I know this will not be my final results so I'm looking forward to them...as far as Dr.carreon she was absolutely amazing and straight forward which I appreciate very much. I cannot believe how amazing she has my body looking like. Her staff starting with Priscilla and then Gabby and Sam have been nothing but the best with so much respect from them...I felt so comfortable the whole time and the procedure went so smooth. I didn't feel a thing. Best advice I can say is don't sleep the night before and you shouldn't have an issue falling to sleep for the procedure. I'm so in love with myself. Another important thing to maximize the results be sure to get the lymphatic massages they will speed up your results and recovery. I just want to give thanks and so much love to the staff of Dr.Carreon. i would do it all over again no questions asked."- S.A. / Google / Feb 23, 2020
"Smart lipo - I cannot believe my results - She is amazing! I got smart lipo in my lower/upper abs pubic sides and my bra roll. My results do far have been amazing it's do crazy how small my stomach is. I'm 10 days post op and went for my first lymphatic massage (wish I went sooner) as I was starting to get fibrosis in some areas. I highly recommend them as they will make you feel so much better.I should have went 24-48 hours after my surgery. The swelling is there especially in my pubic area at times it was really scary but completely normal. But so far so good I cannot believe my results. The doctors assistance are amazing as well and always available for any questions I have. There bedside manner is so nice and they walk you thru every step of the process. If I could do it again I would with the same doctor no questions asked."- A. / RealSelf / Feb 16, 2020
Skin Rejuvenation Ideal Candidates
Skin rejuvenation can be a treatment tailored for men and women who desire to correct a specific issue on their skin (such as acne, pigmentation discoloration, or texture). Candidates are often looking for a solution to bring back the "glow" to their skin and look and feel younger without having to undergo surgery or move toward a more invasive approach. Most men and women can benefit from having a nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatment in some form, depending on what is being addressed.
At LCS Medical Spa, we tailor our skin rejuvenation treatment plans so that they are specific and unique for each patient. One of the most common treatments offered is a combination of injectables, including a dermal filler and the use of BOTOX (known as the "liquid facelift"). This synergistic approach to blending the power of a wrinkle relaxer to correct upper facial lines and a dermal filler to add volume to areas where it has been depleted helps create an overall softer look and rejuvenation. Fillers are very effective in filling in creases and lines, such as the laugh lines, areas around the nose, under the eyes, and to help add volume to the lips.
Some of the nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatments offered at LCS Medical Spa include:
- Wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX and Xeomin
- Dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm and Restylane
- Kybella, which is a fat reduction injection used for under the chin
- Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, which can help turn over the skin cells on the top/dermal layer of the face for a softer result
- Chemical Peels, a treatment that uses a solution that is applied to the top layer of skin so that it gently peels away revealing a fresh, younger-looking complexion
- Dermabrasion, a treatment similar to a chemical peel except that a minimally invasive handheld tool is used, which spins across the skin to remove damaged skin in order for new skin to appear
- Laser Skin Resurfacing, a treatment that uses advanced laser light and heat to target specific problem areas on the face, neck, or chest, which allows the skin to be resurfaced so that skin regeneration can occur and new skin can grow for a younger appearance
The "Liquid Facelift"
This is probably one of the most popular nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatments offered at LCS Medical Spa, which blends a combination of BOTOX or Xeomin to correct forehead lines, the lines between the brows (the number "11"), and Crow's feet, as well as a dermal filler, such as Juvéderm, to fill in laugh lines, enhance the cheeks, correct deeper creases, and add volume and smoothness to the lips. A nonsurgical liquid facelift, oftentimes, can keep our patients looking their best and appearing younger for a number of years before a cosmetic surgery needs to ever be explored.

Skin Rejuvenation Frequently asked questions
How expensive is it?
Compared to surgery, using nonsurgical skin rejuvenation methods can save money for a number of years, and depending on what is chosen, it can be highly effective. With combination treatments, pricing can be discussed during your consultation so that a plan can be created that is cost effective. Our Seguin medical spa offers affordable pricing and financing plans. We also offer monthly specials to our patients. We invite you to look at our Procedure Pricing page to get an idea at what some of our treatments may cost you.
How long does it last?
Some skin rejuvenation treatments can last for a year or longer while others, such as injectables, will need touch-ups within 3 – 4 months. The sooner you start attacking the problem areas, the better. We have seen patients carry their results for months, if not years, once the skin has returned to a healthy place and a regular, everyday skin care maintenance regimen can then be applied at home to help keep the skin at its optimal health.
How long until I see results?
Many of our treatments will allow you to see results quickly. In most cases, whether it is a filler, laser, or peel treatment, within a few days, your face will appear softer and more radiant. Some therapies continue to work even weeks and months later, especially if collagen regeneration is occurring under the skin. These results can last year-round as long as you maintain them according to the advice of Dr. Carreon.
