If you are having any type of rare skin problems, or you are looking to relax getting a soothing facial that will make some serious changes to your skin, this is the place to go and Veronica De Hoyos is the BEST aesthetician to see!!!
I had moved to Houston not too long ago and I kept on getting clear bumps all over my face, and I had gone to see two dermatologists who kept on prescribing:
2. Cremes that didn't even make a difference and the costs were ludicrous! Money doesn't grow on trees!!!
3. birth control?
I am a believer of both modern and traditional medicine, and I have respect for both, but I can only say I saw a major difference after having a session with Veronica De Hoyos! Veronica is truly the best aesthetician out there, she listens, makes you feel very comfortable, and best of all, she provides excellent effort, recommendations, and personal advice to help to find a solution to your skin problem. I provide my highest recommendation for her!!!
She gives excellent Microdermabrasion Facials, and her effort, care and professionalism truly shows.
Nowadays its difficult to find a place to get a professional facial or even discuss some private skin problems feeling comfortable, and knowing that the professional is actually providing you with honest and experienced advice; however, you will find all of these in the Skin Renewal Center and its staff! Again, my highest recommendation goes out to Veronica de Hoyos!

I learned about The Skin Renewal Center from a woman who is in her mid 70's but looks like early 60's. She told me about Sculptra to create volume in the face. My skin was starting to 'drape' and I was beginning to look like 'the Crypt Keeper' (at 46; I'm 50 now).
I went for a consultation and was so happy that I didn't have to deal with Med Center traffic and parking. They are conveniently located down the street from The Chocolate Bar which is another plus ;~>
Dr McNamara LISTENED to me! I told him my concerns and he came up with an affordable solution. He and his warm, caring staff have earned my trust and I have been going to the Center for Sculpta, Thermage ( the radio frequency skin tightening MIRACLE at the touch of a wand), Lipodissolve under my chin, and Botox for congenital bottom lip asymmetry (he magically fixed my crooked mouth) since 2006.
I like the fact that Dr McNamara is Board certified in Internal Medicine. The office is in a cute renovated old house. It's a very comfortable environment. I have been to a few consultations at Plastic Surgeons' offices and I was very intimidated -- even the 'before' women in the waiting room were gorgeous. Here you feel like you are visiting friends; but the BEST kind of friends -- the ones who can make you look younger!

I am a 43 year old woman that was starting to feel my age. I could not have that !! I discussed having the Vaser Lipo Selection with Dr. McNamara to get rid of some of my resistant areas- that would not budge with diet and exercise (Hips,Buttocks,and Inner and Outer Thighs). The procedure was easier that I ever could have expected.Dr. McNamara was caring and informative.I noticed results the day after the procedure and it just keeps getting better.I say -Do it for yourself !!
The Skin Renewal Center also takes care of all my skin care needs. I get regular facials with Veronica. I love her!! I have also had a series of facial peels and Botox.My skin has never looked better.Thank you Guys-You are the Best!!
After having a baby at 40....I had lost my wonderfully sexy figure for good. Until I was introduced to Dr Patrick J. McNamara. I am very impressed with the caring he puts into his patients. He really listens! The follow up is outstanding. Real results...My tummy is flatter than before the baby. I feel sexy again. My clothes fit great. My confidence is back. It took me down for a few days and I was back in my routine without bruising or scars. 1 week later I was out with friends at a Nascar race. They could not believe how fast the recovery was. The procedure was over before I knew it. Again it was worth every dime and a little of my time. My abs, stomach and inner thighs feel 25 again. Thank-you to Patrick and Veronica for everything you did. I have sent one friend and will send you others.
I will never regret this decision! I will do it again if I ever have another baby. Your center is the best!
Dr. Patrick McNamara, the medical director of The Skin Renewal Center is professional, skilled and caring. He has the ability to assess the client's needs in an unassuming way, making suggestions as to the best course of treatment for each client with considerations for aesthetics and the client's budget.
I am a woman over 50 who has been treated by him with Botox and Radiesse, which has taken at least ten years off my appearance. I could not be happier.
Veronica, his esthetician's glycolic facials produce a superior result, giving my skin a fresh glow without causing dryness.
I highly recommend The Skin Renewal Center and would not go anywhere else for my skin care needs.

First of all, I am a middle aged male who is not accustomed to pampering myself with cosmetic procedures. It was not easy for me to decide that it was time to seek assistance for some evident signs of aging that I could see in my face. The idea of having a cosmetic procedure was a little intimidating to me.
I decided on the Skin Renewal Center based on previous professional experience I had with Dr McNamara. I feel that I was treated with sensitivity and respect. He takes time to listen to my questions and concerns; as well as takes time to explain everything in terms that I can understand. I believe Dr McNamara is a genuinely caring man. Dr McNamara's care for his patients is also evident through his staff who continue to be professional, yet friendly and helpful any time I am in contact with the center whether on the phone or in person.

'I had the Juvederm injection by Dr. Mcnamara under my eyes and in the lip areas. The results were phenomenal! I was able to go back to work the next day without any visible scar or bruises on my face. I looked 10 years younger instantly. Dr. Mcnamara and his staff were such gentle and kind souls. They took the time and provided the loving care without any self-serving pressure. Both my mother and I are now devoted customers. I want to thanks Dr. Manamara for the profound impact and joy that he brings to our lives. ""

I have been a patient of Dr. McNamara for several years and noticed that his Office Manager was losing weight at a very impressive rate. When I inquired he informed me that it was one of Dr. McNamaras latest weightloss plans. I scheduled an appointment and began a three week long procedure. I had weekly visits and felt the personal consults were very helpful. I was so pleased with my results(inches lost) I signed up for a second round of treatment. My final result was a loss of 14 lbs. I continued on the eating plan very naturally because I had noticed my appitite had been reduce drastically. The greatest suprise was that my weigh continued to drop off very rapidly as well as the inches. As discussed when I began the weight loss plan it was mentioned that I would basically be restarting my metabolism. This is exactly what happen!!!
I began this program a solid size 14 and am now down to a size 8. Total weight loss is 23 lbs.
I am 51 years old and am back down to the size I was prior to my two pregnancys over 10 years ago and still losing with very little effort. I do watch what I eat, I prefer fruits over processed foods (occasionally I do indulge in whatever I please) but do very little cardio exersise and I continue to lose the weight like I did when I was a teenager. One may consider the weightloss plan somewhat radical as I did however I strongly recommend it. The best results are inches lost.
Thank you to everyone at The Skin Renewal Center.
I've been a client of the Skin Renewal Center for several years. I have had numerous facials around town, but this place is the absolute BEST! The products are fabulous, the treatment is wonderful. Their staff really takes care of their clients. From the front desk, Ric always greets with a great smile, and the esthetician Veronica really takes time to get to know your skin and makes the client feel much pampered. I've had facials, skin peels, micro-dermabrasion and juvederm injections and I wouldn't trust anyone else in Houston but Dr. McNamara and his staff.
Dr. MacNamara was my primary care physician before he started his private practice, and so I was already confident that the Skin Renewal Center's services would be superlative. I was not disappointed: two weeks ago I had the best facial *ever.* I have struggled with oily, uneven skin and have blackheads in my T-zone. My skin is now clear, blemish-free, and most importantly, the oil is under control. Moreover, both the facial and the recommended products (they gave me a week's supply of free samples to try first) were very reasonably priced. I will never go anywhere else for a facial again. The atmosphere is relaxing, and Veronica and Ric are knowledgeable and very friendly.

I took the advice of a girlfirend to visit Dr. McNamara. My main concern was my saggy neckline and lack of lips. During my consultation, the Dr. recommended the Thermage procedure and lip augmentation. The Thermage procedure was virtually painless and results were immediate. The funny thing was no one could really place what was different, but everyone noticed a more youthful appearance in my skin. I always had thin lips but i noticed they have become thinner as I aged. I took his recommendation to try Juvederm. Wow! Did that make a difference. I also have begun treating myself to monthly facials with Veronica. She has helped me rejuvinate my skin. It is not uncommon for folks to comment on my youthful appearance. I just tell them go see The Skin Renewal Center for complimentary consultation with their knowledgeable staff.
Dr. McNamara has professed outstanding quality care and bedside manners. I had fillers in my face to alleviate the thinness, and his work was outstanding.
I walked out of his clinic looking 10 years younger. Everyone expressed a noticeable, albeit subtle, difference. Looking forward to returning when necessary.
Highly recommended. Thank you to the entire staff. You all are incredible and very professional. KUDOS!!!

Dr. McNamara and his staff really know what they're doing at the Skin Renewal Center. There are so many ""medi-spas"" these days, I have learned the hard way you have to be careful about who you actually let do things to your face (bad Botox, anyone?!).
I've had wonderful medical-grade facials and peels that have made my skin much smoother. Also I have utilized their ""Thermage"" treatment for firming and tightening the skin around my face and jawline.
Dr. McNamara provides true expertise for Botox and Juvederm (wrinkle filler). I have had great results with Botox for eliminating crow's feet and forhead furrows and the Juvederm has softened the ""parenthesis"" on the sides of my mouth as well as nasal-labial folds.
These non-sugrical procedures are absolutely the way to go to deal with the signs of aging in a subtle, yet significant way. The Skin Renewal Center has such a nice staff and welcome atmosphere - you'll be glad you went!

My name is Mikki Chernoff and I am a producer /photographer for Playboy Special Editions and former playboy model tv host and radio personality. There is no other Doctor in town I would let work on my face or who i would send our models too . Dr McNamera is a gifted artist aswell as a educated experienced physician -- he takes ten years off my face every time I go see him and because of his gentle touch , I never bruise nor need any 'down time ' --- Before I knew about 'the skin renewal center ' I went to other doctors in town whose staff were like 'fem bots' and I was over charged for sloppy work done by docs who looked like 'used car sales men ' ! ---- At The Skin Renewal Center the staff are real unintimidating friendly people --- They welcome you and within five minutes or less Dr.McNamera himself comes out and personally greets you --- You feel taken care of and most importantly safe in the hands of this doctor ---- If you want amazing looking skin , top notch service and a doctor you can have complete confidence in then there is only one place to go and that is , The Skin Renewal Center - sincerely, Mikki Chernoff ,
