Spring is near, promising warmer weather right around the corner. But don’t wait until June to get your skin into top condition. In some cases, getting your skin ready for summer can take up to three months. By starting now, you can protect your skin from summer’s most intense rays.
Proper skin care is pertinent to healthy skin and Dr. Mallory Spoor-Baker has a regime that is right for you.
Dr. Spoor-Baker, medical graduate of Oklahoma Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery, carries SkinCeuticals, an advanced line of skincare products available at Advanced Cosmetic Medicine.
SkinCeuticals was developed with three distinct functions in mind – prevention, protection, and correction. This advanced line of skin care is designed to prevent future damage, protect healthy skin and correct previous damage. Achieving results means more than restoring youthful, radiant skin. It means preventing serious skin conditions such as skin cancer. Sun blocks from SkinCeuticals protect the skin from harmful UVA rays, which are proven to be responsible for premature signs of aging.
SkinCeuticals’ advanced formulation is based on optimal concentrations of active ingredients elegantly crafted into functional products—designed, formulated, and tested for effectiveness. The product line is made with pure, pharmaceutical grade ingredients with proven scientific results. This entire skincare program works as a complete system for maximum improvement to skin health. Dr. Spoor-Baker also recommends that SkinCeuticals can also be used in conjunction with other procedures, like photo rejuvenation.
Photo rejuvenation, also known as IPL (intense pulsed light), is an effective way to diminish the signs of aging on the face, neck, hands and arms. With IPL, age spots, sun damage, brown spots, benign or mottled skin pigmentation can all be effectively treated. While excessive sun exposure is always harmful to your skin, it is especially important to take extra precaution during these treatments to cover and protect your skin with sunscreen. By starting a regime now, you can avoid further premature aging.
Dr. Spoor-Baker has a repertoire of cosmetic procedures, each one customized to fit your personal needs. She recently added the non-surgical skin tightening procedure, the Titan, which treats skin in sagging or lax areas including cheeks, jowls, arms and abdomen. The Titan gives you an all natural option to enhance skin tone, with current studies showing its results last two or more years.
The procedure is performed with a laser that will comfortably tighten skin with minimal anesthesia needed and zero down time. The Titan uses infrared light to heat dermal water thereby causing existing collagen to contract and stimulating new collagen formation.
Other new age-defying procedures offered at Advanced Cosmetic Medicine are Restylane and Botox, two of the safest and most popular non-surgical face treatments available.
Restylane, the latest in cosmetic dermal fillers, is designed to do away with age-betraying wrinkles and skin folds. Restylane is safe and corrects wrinkles and skin folds from moderate to severe. The results typically last up to six months, or longer in some cases. Restylane lasts longer then collagen, making it an economical solution for ridding your face of wrinkles, skin folds, and fine lines.
Botox is another leading treatment that is a safe and effective alternative to painful and expensive plastic surgery. Botox works by blocking nerve impulses, which reduces the movement of facial muscles. With less movement, the skin surface gradually smoothens. Areas of treatment are forehead, frown lines and crow’s feet.
Public interest and demand for these procedures is growing because they get good results with little or no downtime.
