Westlake Dermatology is proud to be the first practice in Texas to offer MIRIA, a groundbreaking minimally-invasive treatment that corrects pigmentation, tightens loose skin, and rejuvenates in a single treatment.

MIRIA™ is an advanced non-ablative laser with the ability to treat patients with darker skin tones safely and effectively. Miria uses proprietary Focal Point Technology™ to deliver precise laser energy, sparing the epidermis and minimizing collateral damage. MIRIA enhances skin health and appearance with minimal discomfort and is designed for all skin tones, unlocking superior skin renewal for everyone.

What Benefits Can MIRIA Provide

MIRIA laser treatments provide several benefits for both skin health and appearance including:

  • Diminished fine lines and wrinkles for a rejuvenated appearance
  • Minimized visibility of acne scars for smoother skin
  • Improved skin tone and texture for a more even complexion
  • Activation of the body’s innate skin healing process to promote regeneration

How Does MIRIA Work?

MIRIA delivers precise laser energy beneath the skin’s surface, targeting structural and functional elements of the skin. This laser energy causes controlled damage deep in the skin without effecting the epidermis (surface skin layers). Treatment spurs the skin’s natural healing process, boosting skin firming proteins like collagen and elastin while simultaneously encouraging cellular turnover to rejuvenate the skin.

Who Is a Good Candidate For MIRIA

Individuals who are in good overall health and who wish to enhance their overall skin health and address visible aging symptoms are great candidates for MIRIA. Unlike other lasers, MIRIA is not restricted by skin tone and can be used patients with darker skin tones at high energy. Its versatility ensures tailored, effective treatment outcomes for a diverse range of skin types from Fitzpatrick Types I–VI. 

What Is a Treatment Like?

MIRIA treatments are fully customizable and tailored to the specific dermatologic needs of each patient. Treatments start with the application of a topical anesthetic to minimize any discomfort. Next, an ergonomic handpiece with a chilled sapphire tip is passed over the treatment area. MIRIA utilizes a high-resolution imaging system to deliver precise laser energy to targeted areas of the skin. 

Sessions are relatively quick, lasting around 15 to 30 minutes, and are meticulously crafted for comfort and efficacy.

Is MIRIA Painful? 

MIRIA treatments are minimally painful as the laser uses advanced cooling technology and precise temperature controls to ensure a positive experience. Additionally, a topical numbing cream can be applied before the treatment to minimize any discomfort.

How Soon Will I See Results?

Most patients see optimal results with 2-3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Post-treatment, patients can expect to notice an enhancement in skin texture and tone shortly following their first session, with ongoing improvements as the skin continues to revitalize. 

Is Downtime Required?

MIRIA requires little to no recovery time. Following treatment, patients may experience mild redness, swelling, or tenderness along the treatment areas that typically resolve on their own within 24-72 hours.
