As the holidays approach and slinky fashions beckon, many women shift their attention to their skin. Whether you want to remove unsightly hair, eliminate leg veins, facial veins, scarring, sun damage or address other skin concerns, many effective cosmetic treatments are available to you. At Advanced Cosmetic Medicine we offer the latest techniques and most advanced products available in Tulsa to help you enjoy more perfect skin.
Permanent Hair Reduction
The best way to permanently rid yourself of unwanted body hair is with GentleLASE Plus laser treatments, the latest technology available to treat unwanted hair. It uses a revolutionary long-pulse high-energy alexandrite laser that emits a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicle where it is absorbed. The hair follicle is destroyed, while the surrounding skin is unaffected. Facial and bikini areas are usually completed in less than ten minutes; legs, backs and larger areas can take longer. The method works best on dark hair.
Titan Skin Tightening
The benefits of Titan Skin Tightening are many: it treats lax and sagging skin; it stimulates long-term collagen growth; it is done in-office and with no injections; and it is non-surgical. The method is also just as desirable for men as it is for women, as more and more people are turning to non-invasive procedures to keep their appearance fresh and youthful.
Removing Fine Lines, Sun Damage and Acne
Are you concerned about fine lines and wrinkles? Do you have sunspots or age spots? Are you one of a growing number of women over 35 who are having acne again? At Advanced Cosmetic Medicine, we offer a skincare program that includes micropeels. The micropeel is a three-step process that includes a mechanical dermabrasion technique, chemical acid peel, and dry ice. This process produces exfoliation and the stimulation necessary to improve your skin. We carry SkinCeuticals, a line of skincare products. These products, designed to use at home, keep the improvements coming.
Photorejuvenation is another effective treatment option to retexturize and improve your skin. With just a flash of light we can markedly improve many common facial concerns safely and effectively, such as broken capillaries, benign brown pigment, age spots, and mottled pigmentation of the skin. Photorejuvenation using IPL (intense pulsed light) is a non-invasive treatment that treats skin damage without disruption of the skin’s surface, hence, no “down time.” Specific skin problems, such as small facial veins, sunspots, age spots, or neck vascularity can be treated as well.
Spider and Varicose Vein Treatment
If unsightly and sometimes painful spider and varicose veins cause you concern, Advanced Cosmetic Medicine offers a simple solution. Sclerotherapy was developed over 75 years ago and today is one of the most common treatments for spider and varicose veins. During the treatment, a sclerosing agent is injected into the vein through a tiny needle. The solution, once injected into the vein, replaces the blood in the vein and causes irritation and corrosion to the walls of the vessel. The body then begins the natural healing process and the vein begins to shrink, and eventually disappear.
Dermal Fillers for Lines and Wrinkles
At Advanced Cosmetic Medicine we offer our patients Restylane, the first and only FDA approved dermal filler made of biodegradable non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in all living organisms that provides volume and fullness to the skin.
Restylane is the only filler that is completely natural and non-animal derived so it does not pose a risk of disease transmission. There is no wait for allergy testing, and it has been shown to last longer than six months, which is better than any currently available non-permanent dermal filler. If you or someone you know wants to get rid of unwanted wrinkles or skin folds, Restylane may be the answer.
Permanently enhance your eyelines, eyebrows, lipline and ad full lip color with our Permanent Cosmetic treatment. If you have a busy lifestyle, this will help you look your best everyday without having to apply makeup.
