Adding to its techniques for enhancing appearance, Mallory Spoor-Baker, D.O., of Advanced Cosmetic Medicine is excited to announce new laser options for skin rejuvenation: Pearl Resurfacing Treatment and non-ablative Laser Genesis.
The Pearl laser offers completely new technology to resurface skin like never before. The new 2,790-nanometer laser wavelength allows the complete resurfacing of your face in one or two treatments with minimal discomfort and minimal downtime. Historically, ablative lasers with carbon dioxide and erbium wavelengths have produced almost excessive resurfacing, accompanied by severe pain and months of healing. The new Pearl laser combines cutting-edge technology with a highly-structured, computer-controlled system. What this means to patients is a safer resurfacing treatment that requires only topical anesthetic and that only needs about a week of recovery. Skin resurfacing may be necessary for individuals who want faster treatment of their deep lines and sun damage.
This type of treatment has several advantages over high-grade chemical peels. The science and engineering behind this laser offers a highly-controlled ablation that virtually eliminates the risk of injury that chemical peel operator variables can create. The Pearl laser is also different from fractional laser treatments in that the entire surface of the skin is resurfaced at one time instead of bit-by-bit. Only one or two treatments are needed instead of the five or six required for the fractional systems. In Oklahoma, the Pearl Resurfacing Treatment is only available at Advanced Cosmetic Medicine from Dr. Spoor-Baker, a graduate of Oklahoma State University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine.
The second new procedure that is now available at Advanced Cosmetic Medicine is Laser Genesis. This is a non-ablative laser treatment, which improves redness, large pores, skin texture, lip purse lines, as well as some types of scarring. Laser Genesis uses a 1,064-nanometer laser in a unique way to treat these common problems. This procedure is performed on the entire skin surface several times with little or no pain and zero recovery time. The procedure can take as little as 30 minutes per session. It is usually recommended to have five treatments for the best results.
At Advanced Cosmetic Medicine, patients can achieve tighter, younger-looking skin with a variety of services. Dr. Spoor-Baker specializes in cosmetic medicine and offers such treatments as intense pulsed light photorejuvenation, laser hair removal for light and dark skin types, a variety of leg vein treatments, as well as micropeels, microdermabrasion, micropigmentation and electrolysis. In addition to a complete skin care product line, Restylane, Botox and Titan skin tightening are also available to help patrons enjoy more perfect skin.
