Westlake Dermatology's chic, sleek waiting room.

If you’re on a pilgrimage for the holy grail of skincare, your journey just got easier. Westlake Dermatology, Austin’s popular beauty haunt for dermatology and plastic surgery, just opened the doors to its Houston location, meaning no more trips down 290 are required to get the coveted Westlake glow. The highly anticipated West U private practice at 2132 Bissonnet St. marks Westlake Dermatology’s 15th location in Texas (nine are in Austin alone).

The sleek, 6,700-square-foot office—designed by Michael Hsu Office of Architecture—is one of the few centers in the country to provide plastic surgery as well as full-service dermatology. The menu spans everything from simple skin checks and chemical peels to breast augmentation, facelifts, and state-of-the-art treatments for skin diseases. Whether you’re treating something as common as eczema or looking to undergo a full body transformation, all of the services are housed under one chic, spa-like roof. 

Products at Westlake Dermatology's new Houston location.

The cosmetic facility has developed a cult following around Texas, and its Austin locations regularly attract visitors from around the Lone Star State. “Houston-area residents no longer have to travel to enjoy our innovative services and techniques,” Westlake president and founder Dr. Gregory Nikolaidis says. A native Houstonian himself, Nikolaidis says he's excited to bring his company to his hometown. 

Those looking to get glowing skin can book an appointment with one of the office’s Houston physicians. Dr. DiAnne Davis and Dr. Katelyn Woolridge are board-certified dermatologists skilled in services like medical dermatology, Botox, dermal fillers, SmartLipo, CoolSculpting, ActiveFX laser resurfacing, micro-needling, chemical peels, and a variety of other treatments. A team of plastic surgeons will join the practice team this summer. 

Trendy new offerings include Ultrapulse eye tightening, which utilizes ablative laser therapy to produce blepharoplasty-like results without surgery, as well as a chemical peel combined with Genius RF micro-needling that addresses pigmentation and tightens skin.
