"Dr.Kridel and his staff are the most amazing team out there. He performed my rhinoplasty and took care of each one of my concerns. As a senior in high school, I had no confidence when it came to my nose but after the surgery I look amazing and I’m actually more outgoing. I truly recommend him and his work. He is a very genuine person and cares for every patient. Honestly the best surgeon in Houston."- S.A. / Google / May 04, 2019
"Dr. Kridel and Dr. Caceras are perfectionists. They explained in detail my procedure. I had my facelift a week before Thanksgiving and Dr. Kridel had me come in to his office on Thanksgiving Day to see how I was healing and to check my stitches, if they needed to be taken out. I do not know any doctors that would come in on a holiday and weekends if it is not an emergency! That is the perfectionism and their standards in that office. Their entire staff make you feel very comfortable and are true professionals."- M.P. / Doctor.com / Feb 18, 2020

"Dr. Kridel has improved my quality of life in ways I did not think were possible. I thought my perforated septum would never be closed and he not only closed it, but straightened my nose and gave me back my self confidence."- V.N. / Healthgrades / Jan 29, 2020
Best Candidates for Nonsurgical Hair Restoration
While men tend to experience widespread hair loss, women tend to have thinning hair and hair loss throughout the head. Because hair loss in women is more diffuse and tends to center on the top of their scalp, nonsurgical treatments can be very helpful. NeoLTS light hair restoration treatments have been shown to improve hair growth and thickness. This can be done alone or in combination with Hair Medica products to optimize hair growth. Also, platelet-rich-plasma injections stimulate the hair follicles to grow thicker, healthier hairs. These are simple, in-office injections and can be repeated for best results.
NeoLTS Light Therapy
The NeoLTS is a painless, relaxing light treatment that safely stimulates hair growth on all skin and hair types. The light stimulates dormant hair follicles into becoming active so new hair is grown, while improving the health and thickness of existing hair follicles. The NeoLTS can be used in combination with the Hair Medica System and/or platelet rich plasma injections to boost hair growth without surgery. The NeoLTS light therapy treatment also works well as a complement to the NeoGraft hair transplant for enhanced hair growth. There is no downtime or skin changes, so you can have a NeoLTS treatment over your lunch hour and no one will know.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
We can use your own healing abilities to stimulate hair growth. The growth factors in your blood are isolated and injected into the scalp in a series of injections. These growth factors help “wake up” your hair follicles and encourage them to grow again. This procedure is relatively quick, can be done in the office and has minimal downtime.
Hair Medica Products
Hair Medica products use a hormone-free, scientific approach to promote hair growth. Hair Medica creates a supportive environment to promote your own body’s ability to grow hair. Hair Medica uses natural ingredients to stimulate the growth of dormant hair follicles, increase the thickness of existing hairs, and maintain the health of existing hair. Hair Medica does not have unwanted side effects, like sexual problems or facial hair growth in women, which can be caused by other hair growth medications.
