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....

Men and Skin: The Reality

Now that Father’s Day is around the corner, I figured it would be important to discuss the differences between men and women’ skin. However, first I wanted to wish all fathers an exciting day, because let’s face it…their role in the lives of our children is critical, and we just want them to keep doing it! For many years, it has been taboo for a man to take care of his skin openly. Not too many years ago, my male clients’ would come to my office and ask me to keep it a secret. While some women did so too, the reasons were different. So what goes...

Treating Skin of Color…

With 2019 full speed ahead, and now that “Diversity” is more than a fact of life, but a trend, I thought I would write about treating skin of color. The reason that I say diversity is a trend, is because to me, it is awareness that is increasing, since diversity has always existed. The influence that different ethnic groups and cultures have had over each other has always been present. It is true that mixed ethnicities are more prevalent, which is important when treating skin of color… The closer to the equator the darker the skin, and the further north the lighter the skin. This is because of...

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...

Nurse Aestheticians: Bridging The Gap Between Wellness and Medicine

As I spoke to a client, who happened to be a fellow aesthetician, about the changing field we deal with every day when a client opens our door, I realized it was time to write about our role in people’s lives as gatekeeper of their wellness goals. I say this because the soul of the medical field has changed, and many times a medical diagnosis results in quick prescriptions with treatment with steroids and antibiotics. As many of you know, some of these, treat the symptom and not the cause, and can be toxic to your body. There’s a lot to be gained by adopting a holistic, preventive...

Cellulite: The Big Enigma

One of the top concerns of my clients, along with hair removal, is cellulite. The concern is real, since many of them refuse to wear shorts or even a bathing suit due to the embarrassment resulting from cellulite. And while trying to diminish its importance is a way to deal with it, with new treatment options, we can feel better about ourselves. The truth is that the etiology of cellulite is not completely known. So what is cellulite, besides the appearance, to some degree, of cottage cheese on our skin? One theory proposes that cellulite is the result of herniation of fat protruding through a weakened dermis and...
