Advanced Cosmetic Medicine now offers SkinCeuticals products to use daily at home.
At Advanced Cosmetic Medicine in Tulsa, Dr. Mallory Spoor-Baker is well known for improving her patients’ health and skin through laser treatments, whole food-based nutrition, Botox injections, fillers and other cosmetic treatments. Dr. Spoor-Baker has recently added some exciting new SkinCeuticals products for patients to use daily at home to enhance their appearance – perfect timing for the upcoming holiday celebrations.
Do you have fatigued-looking eyes? According to Dr. Spoor-Baker, AOX+ Eye Gel is a breakthrough serum-in-a-gel that contains synergistic antioxidant combinations to help protect the delicate eye area from oxidative stress, while targeted actives revive under-eye skin and reduce the appearance of puffiness.
“AOX+ Eye Gel prevents signs of aging while correcting existing photodamage, especially age spots and laxity. Additionally, it increases under-eye circulation to reduce swelling while improving drainage and congestion of fluids under the eye, further diminishing puffiness. When used daily, this preventive and corrective treatment combats signs of fatigue to restore a fresh, vibrant appearance around the eyes,” says Dr. Spoor-Baker. “AOX+ is for all skin types. It fights severe signs of intrinsic aging around the eyes in mature skin; improves radiance in tired, dull eyes; reduces the appearance of dark circles and diminishes puffiness and under-eye bags; and reduces and helps prevent wrinkles and crow’s feet.”
Another new SkinCeuticals product available at Advanced Cosmetic Medicine is Phloretin CF Gel. This gel is formulated with an optimized combination of 2 percent phloretin, 10 percent vitamin C, and 0.5 percent ferulic acid. “As supported by clinical studies, the addition of the phloretin molecule enhances the efficacy of vitamin C and ferulic acid for increased synergy while regulating pigment production. This trusted antioxidant trio also accelerates cell turnover and stimulates collagen synthesis to boost skin’s structure for a firmer, brighter complexion.”
Used daily, this preventative and corrective treatment can provide broad-range photoprotection and conquer damage at every level of skin. Phloretin CF gel is ideal for sensitive, combination, oily and normal skin types while also satisfying those who prefer a gel texture to treat aging, hyperpigmented, and acneic skin.
According to Dr. Spoor-Baker, much of the skin damage in her patients is directly caused by the sun, and she regularly stresses the importance of wearing a good sunscreen daily. Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 provides high broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection with all natural physical filters. “Providing substantial power in an ultra sheer, mattifying fluid, this sunscreen is infused with translucent color spheres to enhance natural skin tone. Tested on all ethnicities, this adaptable fluid provides discreet coverage while restoring radiance. Physical Fusion is paraben-free and safe for even very sensitive skin,” says Dr. Spoor-Baker. The weightless texture of this sunscreen is water and sweat resistant, and non-comedogenic (does not clog pores). It can be used alone or under makeup and is ideal for daily use.
For adults with acne issues, Dr. Spoor-Baker recommends Blemish + Age Defense, a targeted, oil-free approach to treating adult acne and signs of aging. It is specially formulated to prevent the formation of acne, minimize hyperpigmentation, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
“Specifically created for the concerns of the acne-prone adult, Blemish + Age Defense goes beyond efficiently treating imperfections to additionally address signs of aging. It reduces excess sebum production, and prevents hyperpigmentation that can cause skin to appear prematurely aged,” says Dr. Spoor-Baker. And don’t forget about improving your nutrition – it will make your skin better. Clinical studies show that whole food-based nutrition from a variety of nutritious fruits and vegetables will improve your skin.
