Women, men and teens benefit from Photo Facials.
Are you ready to put on a fresh face for 2007? When you look in the mirror, would you like to see a younger and healthier looking complexion that reflects the young vibrant person of years ago, rather than one that reveals how many of those years have passed? If you are ready to start working against the calendar rather than surrendering to it, it is time to check into the many options Tulsa Skincare Clinic has to offer.
“Everybody wants to feel beautiful,” says Nikki Baez, owner of Tulsa Skincare Clinic. “It is not vanity to want to look in the mirror and see things that reflect youthfulness. And one of those things is flawless skin.”
Nikki wants you to know you can attain young and healthy looking skin at reasonable prices without sacrificing quality and experience. Since 1999, Nikki, a Certified Laser Practitioner and Licensed Paramedical Esthetician, has been providing quality skin treatment options such as laser hair removal, Photo Facials or Intense Pulse Light (IPL), skin tightening, microdermabrasion and spider vein removal. Nikki can treat common skin maladies like acne, port wine stains, age spots, sun damage, freckles and wrinkles, using only top notch equipment and medical grade, custom formulated skin products. In addition, Tulsa Skincare Clinic’s medical director, Dr. Greg Rampey, is available to administer Restylane and botox injections and to consult with patients about weight loss options.
Her own experience as a patient was what spurred Nikki’s desire to provide quality skin care procedures in the first place. “During the course of my own past treatment, I’ve been burned, scarred and then overcharged for it,” Nikki recalls. “They sold me ‘the car’ and put me on the ‘payment plan’, but I wasn’t seeing lasting results.”

Even with this, Nikki still believed that young and gorgeous skin was an attainable goal. Instead of concentrating only on industry problems, she decided to become a part of the solution. She used her business acumen and obtained the necessary education to start her own skin care business, in which she could provide the kind of treatment she herself had sought.
Another thing that became a major issue for Nikki because of her past experience was privacy. Nikki recalls being made to feel uncomfortable at one time when she requested a certain procedure, only to be asked “why?” over and over throughout the treatment. It is for this reason that she is especially sensitive to the privacy of her clients. “I do not ask ‘why?’,” Nikki states. “I don’t ask personal questions. For me, this is about providing high quality patient care at the best prices.”
In order to provide the best prices while still using top of the line equipment and skin care products, Nikki follows a very simple philosophy: she keeps her overhead low. “I don’t keep a huge staff. I answer my own phone and book my own appointments,” says Nikki. “It costs extra money to pay someone to do those things, and that translates into extra costs for the client.”
“You would not pay $20 a gallon for gasoline when you could go right across the street and pay $2 for the very same product,” Nikki points out. “And there’s no reason to pay more for skin care options when the same procedures are available at more reasonable rates.”
So if you are ready to change your look and change your life, make 2007 “your year” and visit Nikki at Tulsa Skincare Clinic.
