About Sun-Related Consults
Does your skin have dark spots or textural issues due to previous sun damage? At The Skin Centre in Houston, Texas, you can meet with one of our experienced dermatology team members to have your skin analyzed for specific damage related to the sun's harmful rays. In a private discussion, your sun-related skin consultation can determine the best ways to meet your skin care needs by assessing the depth of the problems in your skin. Patients of all ages who request this type of consultation may have hyperpigmentation issues, rough skin, wrinkles, lines, hydration issues, and more. At The ZO Skin Centre in Houston, we can also screen your skin for skin cancer. Our goal with a sun-related skin consultation is to help you find the best intervention for your skin so that you get back on track to healthier skin.
Sun-damaged skin can present itself in many ways besides the occasional sunburn. Over time, the sun will cause your skin to evolve. Wrinkles, pigmentation spots, loss of hydration, and skin disease or disorders are all possibilities your skin could endure with repeated overexposure to the harmful rays of the sun.
When you have an over production of melanin in your facial skin, it can be very difficult to treat pigmentation conditions without professional medical help. We consult with patients with sun-damaged skin presenting as hyperpigmentation (freckles, sun spots, dark patches, blotchy skin, and more).
Would you like to have a skin analysis that includes an assessment for skin cancer? Sun damage can cause skin cancer, and we recommend that you have a regular check-up and screening every 6 – 12 months if you are at risk. Our consultations for skin cancer will assess abnormalities in your skin, check moles for size and color, and examine dark spots. We can also recommend products to help prevent skin cancer with our high SPF sunscreens, which needs to be worn daily (especially on the vulnerable areas: the face, neck, hands, and feet). If we suspect that you have the characteristics of skin cancer, it will be imperative to speak with a doctor or dermatologist about the findings.
Malignant melanoma is a serious form of skin cancer most often caused by sun overexposure, and if not treated, can spread rapidly. If you have a melanoma or have been treated for this severe type of skin cancer, it is highly important that you wear a powerful UVA + UVB sun protectant on your skin. At The ZO Skin Centre, we have a series of sunscreen formulations that may work well with your skin for prevention.
The sun can bring out a hyperpigmentation called melasma, which is a hormonal pigmentation condition. Melasma consultations will assess the severity of your condition, and we will strategize ways to reduce the appearance of melasma flare-ups. We also can recommend ZO Skin Health products and services for treatment, such as the ZO Controlled Depth Peel with or without a laser skin resurfacing. Melasma is a skin condition that has to be managed as there is no cure. Keep in mind that even with aggressive or consistent treatment, sometimes the pigmentation will return to the same spot on your skin. Superficial melasma responds well to creams and disappears, but deep melasma may require a combination of peels and procedures.
"I had a great experience with Sonia! It's a very new office. She started the appointment off with some wine, and was very educational about the brand! I left the facial glowing, and my skin looked great days/weeks after. I definitely recommend!"- A.K. / Yelp / Sep 24, 2018
"This place is ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL!!!!!! Sonia West hosted a Botox party for us & it exceeded all expectations.

We've already scheduled our next party. I can't thank you enough, Sonia!!!!! You're the best!!!"- A.R. / Yelp / Sep 08, 2018
"I came here after searching for another place to obtain facials within the area. My first visit was a complimentary consult and spoke about my skin concerns. I inquired about the Hydrafacial MD, as lately I have been experiencing bouts of dry skin. The second visit was my scheduled appointment and did the Hydrafacial MD. I have to say Dana did such a great job! I felt so RELAXED! I can definitely tell that my face feels better compared to what it was when I came to consult with Dana. My skin feels amazing overall. :)"- S.F. / Facebook / Mar 28, 2018
