Posted by on Jun 28, 2015 in NotesBySheryl | 0 comments

As you may already know, Botox cosmetic treatment in Tulsa is gaining popularity with each passing day and is being increasingly taken up by those concerned about their stretch lines and wrinkles. As per experts administering Botox in Tulsa, this method is specifically helpful for removing the vertical wrinkles present in between the eyebrows (commonly called frown or expression lines), glabellar furrows, and crow’s feet. Botox (Dysport / Vistabex ) fails to be very effective in case of wrinkles/ lines created on the skin due to loss of volume, lack in elasticity,  or wherein the skin becomes loose because of over exposure to the sun. These concerning conditions are best treated through other means. Botox Treatment in Oklahoma  The use of Botox is to be avoided in case of hyper-sensitivity to botulinum toxin, or if you happen to be suffering from muscle ailments. Additionally, if you are taking spectinomycin, aminoglycoside antibiotics, or just any other drug that may impact the nerve impulses in your muscles, you must stay away from this treatment. Pregnant women and those breastfeeding their new born should wait until they are in a more favorable position to take these injections. In general, the process of treating the symptoms of aging through Botox is fast, simple, safe, and painless in nature and requires only 10 to 20 minutes. Small amounts of Botox are injected into pre-defined areas containing fine lines and wrinkles, via a very fine needle. As just a small amount of fluid is administered into the skin and the needle is very thin, you will feel minimum or no discomfort during the entire procedure. As sedation is not a requirement, you can go back to your daily activities just after undergoing Botox treatment. Last but not the least the most important thing to remember while seeking Botox cosmetic in Tulsa is that the process should be conducted by a licensed, trained, and experienced organization such as ours here at SKIN RN of Tulsa.    Make your Appointment...

Posted by on May 28, 2015 in NotesBySheryl |

Glycolic acid–often used by manufacturers in the textile industry, has great utility as a dyeing and tanning agent. Also used as a preservative and flavoring agent in the food industry, this chemical is added to paint and ink for improving their flow properties and/or imparting a nice gloss on the final product. Read on for how experts involved with chemical peels and facial fillers in Tulsa are using glycolic acid products for treating hyper-pigmentation and acne spots with flair. Facial Peel in Tulsa with Glycolic Acid Glycolic acid, extracted from sugarcane, was originally patented for the successful treatment of spots and acne. One of the other uses of this chemical product was related to the removal of ingrown hair in bikini areas and beards. Additionally, it is being used by various skincare companies as an active exfoliating agent and product. One of the main benefits of using this product as a vital ingredient of chemical peels is that it enables newly exfoliated skin to draw in moisture from the atmosphere, thereby making the same look rather plump and soft. In general, skin care systems, complete with a moisturizer and neutralizer, are sold to counter the corrosive effects of this acid. In case of peels, as the dead skin is burned off chemically, the other ingredients in the skin care system help in neutralizing the effects of acid and water, and dispose of the last traces of acid remaining on the skin. Risk Factor and Way Forward But then, even though glycolic acid enables women to achieve a youthful and better looking facial appearance, the same also makes the skin highly sensitive and vulnerable under the sun. However, case studies and current research findings have proved that the success rate of this acid, if used in the manner intended, is quite high. So, just go for the same and say “hello” to a better looking you.    Make your Appointment...
