Board-certified dermatologists Josephine M. Futrell and Sarah E. Glorioso take a highly scientific approach to treating the body’s biggest, most visible organ. With degrees in immunology and biomedical engineering to back up more than 20 years of medical experience, the duo of epidermal experts maintains the skin’s youthful allure with intense pulsed light and lasers, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and brown spots while destroying oncoming asteroids. They also wield an arsenal of antioxidant-enriched skincare products from free-radical enemies such as SkinCeuticals and Vivité, whose creams and serums lighten complexions with vitamins gathered from natural plant sources. Botox injections, chemical peels, and tattoo-removal treatments round out Ark-La-Tex Dermatology’s expansive menu of services.
Doctors L. Gregory Blanton and Scott Robertson promote well-being and beauty for women inside and out through gynecological and obstetrical care and medical spa services. Aiding in all phases of womanhood?including annual checkups, pregnancy, and menopause?the doctors tend not only to health, but also to aesthetic needs. Facial treatments including peels, microdermabrasion, and dermaplaning help treat acne, signs of aging, and dull skin. Skilled technicians wield Cutera's CoolGlide laser to target errant vessels, from wispy spider veins to darker blue reticular veins. Meanwhile, FDA-approved injectables help erase fine lines and undo scarring.
The optical experts at Clifton Eye Center examine peepers and correct blurry vision with prescription lenses couched in designer frames. During a new-patient comprehensive exam ($110), a skilled optometrist evaluates eyes' focus, accuracy, and reactivity to light or compliments. Patrons with a prescription in hand can acquire sight correctors such as single-vision plastic lenses ($60) in frames by Cole Haan ($172.50–$185) or Michael Kors ($125–$167.50). Visitors can explore parallel racks of designer eyewear, selecting frames such as petite-fit BCBG Max Azria frames ($172.50–$197.50) that flatter faces without pinching noses or elbowing ears.
As the name suggests, Anytime Fitness is open all day and all night, seven days a week, 487 days a year. But just because it's open at all hours doesn't mean it surrenders its locker rooms to the dark forces of the night: security is active there around the clock. Besides creating a safe gym atmosphere that fits your life's schedule rather than vice versa, Anytime's hours cuts down on crowds and long lines to use each club's array of cardio equipment, circuit equipment, and free weights.
Designed in a collaborative effort between PGA Tour pro and 1992 Masters champion Fred Couples and renowned course architect Gene Bates, The Golf Club at StoneBridge’s 18-hole, par 72 course careens through 6,954 yards of towering oaks, small lakes, and scenic wetlands. Twosomes can begin the day by testing their mettle and irons at the club’s driving range, where practice balls willfully turn themselves into ballistic agents in the war on errant swings and caddies who suggest wearing argyle with plaid. With water hazards coming in play on 15 holes, players must be judicious in their course management and precise in their club selection, lest they pay fealty to the subaquatic despots with a one-stroke penalty. After the round, golfers can settle stymied competitions with a sandwich-eating competition or a contest to see who can more quickly transform their draft beer into a serviceable ball washer.
Shreveport Bossier's dentistry practice provides family and cosmetic dentistry from two smile-brightening locations. Teeth-whitening treatments with Opalescence begin when impressions are taken of the teeth—forming customized bleaching trays that fit like tooth-leotards—and include comprehensive instructions for using the Opalescence trays at home. The whitening gel helps teeth achieve a sparkly sheen and a lightened shine, and possibly helps strengthen enamel, reduce sensitivity, and increase the skill of the cavity-fighting warriors living under the tongue.
