Microcurrent vs Other Injectables

Med Aesthetics Miami is celebrating 12 years from when we provided treatment to our first client! During this process, we have strived to provide the best alternatives aligned with our mission. Slowly but surely, we started with laser hair removal to skincare to body contouring. And so microcurrent was one of them. I believe I have described it in a past blog, but to briefly refresh your memories, it is a treatment that mimics the electrical signals of the muscles (hence microcurrent), and in the process it provides better circulation and oxygenation of our skin, resulting in collagen stimulation, tightening and lifting of the skin, and more....

Those Pesky Little Veins…

No wonder there are so many sayings and love stories about blood in our veins, or phrases that use the veins to express our feelings (e.g. cold-blooded)…However, for too many of us, all we can say is “those pesky little veins”. And the truth is that they can swell, itch, burn, tingle, cause aching and cramping, and more. Depending on the severity, they may reduce circulation, and produce discoloration and ulceration of the skin. So what can cause spider veins? Is it from aging, obesity, pregnancy, trauma, or lifestyle? For example, nurses get them a lot because they stand and are on their feet for a very long...

Our Skin and Epigenetics

In this competitive world, where much is determined by how we look, many people love a face that is well taken care of. So when they notice one and after the initial comment of “Your Skin Looks Great”, comes the question: “Have you always had good skin; is it in your genes?” … and the answer is: to an extent, but of course, there’s no substitute for taking care of your skin. Some believe that epigenetics or changes in gene expression not resulting from DNA instructions, is responsible for about 65% of longevity; whereas the remaining 35% is determined by those instructions mentioned above. In other words,...

Antioxidants: Helping Our Bodies

As I continue expanding on the skincare revolution, today, I decided to focus on antioxidants. A lot is known about them and their role in many functions of our bodies. Most notably, antioxidants are known for their help protecting our bodies from free radicals. They do this by giving off an electron that will attach to the free radical chain, thus breaking the reaction. They come in different forms from vitamins, minerals, amino acids, hormones to enzymes. For example, a few nights ago I was extremely tired and took some melatonin. I ended up sleeping about eight hours straight, more than my usual six. I also gave...

Hirsutism

In today’s business landscape, it’s easy to lose sight of your destination and start looking at what others are doing. This translates from trying to be present in your work to looking at your competitors and worrying about what they’re doing. Well, in my case, I like to think that I can only provide my best results when I use my talents to the max and when I believe in what I do. In other words, by being the best I can be, I not only provide a better service to my clients, but I am more at peace and fulfilled with myself. This alignment is simply...

Clearing it up: To Extract or not

When my son’s friend came to visit him recently, I couldn’t help but notice the scars on his skin. Of course I had to bite my tongue to not say anything, but teen acne and acne in general is a major concern for many of us and rightly so, because those pimples can result in scars and pigmentation. In the case of teens, these can even cause them to withdraw from social activities, including social media. Extracting acne lesions from the skin without creating damage is key, but however there is a fine line. Too much pressure and leaving bacteria behind can cause bruising, more scars, and it...

Do Lasers And RadioFrequency Cellulite Treatments Work?

Today, I decided to focus on this week’s most frequently asked question: Do cellulite treatments really work? Rightly so, many ask this question. The fact is that while there are many alternatives to reduce the appearance of cellulite, some of these can be quite expensive.  Furthermore, to maintain the good results, many times these have to be repeated monthly or at preset intervals. Others simply don’t work. Nevertheless, the answer to this question is a resounding yes, there are treatments that work effectively to reduce the appearance of cellulite. If we start with the premise that cellulite occurs when fat deposits push through layers of connective tissue and that...

How do Cellulite Treatments Work?

I remember having cellulite since my teenage years. Many years later, it is still there: not better, not worse. While my situation is not so bad and noticeable, others are more affected by it. Living in Miami, close to the ocean and with beautiful sunny days, just adds to the equation. Cellulite is fat that collects in pockets just below the surface of the skin. It forms around the hips, thighs, and buttocks. Cellulite deposits cause the skin to look dimpled. It is a combination of skin laxity, fat herniation, and fibrous strands that can not stretch to support the skin. The tension on these strands pulls...
