Dr. Mallory Spoor-Baker uses Botox, Laser Genesis and Latisse to help her patients look and feel their best this holiday season.
The next couple of months are often the busiest of the year – your days will be filled to the brim with office holiday parties, family gatherings, shopping, cooking and decorating. Though it’s a joyful time, it can also be a stressful one. Why not treat yourself to a special beauty pick-me-up? It’s no secret that when you look good, you feel good, and Advanced Cosmetic Medicine in Tulsa can help you achieve the glowing, gorgeous look you want for the holidays and the new year.
According to Dr. Mallory Spoor-Baker of Advanced Cosmetic Medicine, Botox is one of the quickest, most popular treatments for improving your appearance and giving you a more youthful look. “Deep lines between the eyes cause you to appear tired or angry, even when your face is still. By injecting tiny amounts of Botox into a specific facial muscle, only the targeted impulse of that muscle will be blocked, causing a local relaxation and weakness. In this way, the muscle is immobilized, thus preventing wrinkly expressions. Within three days, that area will be flatter and smoother, and you will look more relaxed,” says Dr. Spoor-Baker. Botox treatments typically last from three to six months.
To treat fine line wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture, redness and scars, Dr. Spoor-Baker recommends the Laser Genesis procedure. It utilizes non-invasive laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively improve your appearance. “Patients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface as the laser is moved back and forth about a half inch above your skin,” says Dr. Spoor-Baker. “Over the course of four to five treatments, Laser Genesis can help restore your skin’s youthful glow by smoothing out uneven textures caused by aging, sun damage or scars. You will see a creamier, healthier complexion as large pores are reduced in size and minor imperfections are diminished. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.”
One thing that makes a person appear more attractive is beautiful eyes. Usually the most piercing peepers have long, thick, dark eyelashes. “Latisse is the first and only science-based prescription treatment approved by the FDA for hypotrichosis, or the condition of having inadequate or not enough eyelashes,” Dr. Spoor-Baker explains. “It will help you grow longer, thicker, darker eyelashes. You simply apply Latisse to your upper eyelids at night and begin to see eyelash growth in as little as three weeks – no more eyelash curlers!” For more information and before-and-after pictures, visit www.latisse.com.
