Donna Adams and Dr. Dwight Korgan provide a variety of skincare services at A New Image Cosmetic Laser Center in Claremore.
Have you ever wondered about cosmetic laser procedures, but weren’t sure what they could do for you? Maybe you’ve been to one of the big laser centers but felt a little lost in the shuffle, or simply aren’t sure who can be trusted with something as valuable as your skin.
A New Image Cosmetic Laser Center in Claremore may be just the place to help you answer your questions and get your skin in shape for the coming summer months. Medical director Dr. Dwight Korgan is joined by Donna Adams in a small private office. A New Image offers a variety of laser services that can be used alone or in combination to correct skin conditions, and the benefits are numerous. “Our options are less expensive, less painful and offer more flexibility,” says Dr. Korgan. Unlike some clinics that claim to be medically supervised, Dr. Korgan is always on site, handles all the injectables and meets all new patients.
Using different light wavelengths to penetrate the skin at various levels, Dr. Korgan and Donna work on pore size, wrinkles, brown spots located anywhere on the body, vertical lines around the mouth, skin texture and crow’s feet. Some of the most popular procedures at A New Image involve laser hair removal. “We can even treat bulbous veins on the nose and make the patient much more comfortable. And many people don’t realize skin conditions such as rosacea can be treated with lasers,” says Donna.
Now is the time to get your skin ready for summer, especially if you are planning to have laser hair removal. Donna explains that hair grows in cycles, and lasers work only on the hair follicles that are actively growing at the time of treatment. To completely remove hair, the procedure needs to be performed multiple times.
Other procedures take a bit of time as well. Spider vein treatment requires wearing support stockings for a few weeks, and many clients prefer to have these treatments performed during the winter when they are easily able to have their legs covered. Donna says not to worry, however, if you do need support hose, as A New Image carries a selection imported from Italy. “These stockings are really beautiful; they are not your grandmother’s compression hose.”
Skincare is extremely important, whether or not it is combined with cosmetic procedures, and Donna Adams is happy to help you custom-design a regimen for your skin type and personal needs. Donna is a certified laser technician and has been a certified medical assistant for 25 years. Along with Dr. Korgan, she can address problems such as spider veins on the face and legs, birthmarks including port wine stains, melasma, and cherry angioma. Enhanced skin rejuvenation techniques also help reduce wrinkles for a more youthful appearance.
A New Image offers many top-of-the-line products including Obagi, Jane Iredale, and Vivité, a new skincare line by Allergan, the makers of Botox and Juvederm. “We are excited about the products we offer and what they can do for our clients,” says Donna. “We are very picky about what lines we carry. All of our skincare lines are prescription-strength skin treatments and not something available at the corner drugstore.” A New Image also makes available the MD Forte’ line, which has a very loyal following.
Once you get your skin in great shape, you’ll want a quality makeup to show it off. Donna highly recommends Jane Iredale Mineral Makeup; she says it’s the number one recommended brand by dermatologists and is 100 percent mineral makeup with no fillers. “The minerals are ground 11 times smaller than the most popular brand so you do not have to grind it into your skin,” Donna explains. “It’s a wonderful product, and the colors and variety make it work great for all skin tones and types.” Makeovers are available to help you find your custom color match.
Dr. Korgan offers a free lunchtime laser peel similar to microdermabrasion with every free consultation and schedules appointments outside normal hours – in the early morning or evening – as needed. Call A New Image Cosmetic Laser Center today and see what they can do for you!
