Under Eye Wrinkles: Treatments in Miami

The visible signs of aging often first reveal themselves in the delicate area around our eyes. Under-eye wrinkles, fine lines, and dark circles can subtly make us look older. However, even in sunny locales in the Miami area like Coral Gables, Aventura, and Lauderdale, there are preventative measures and treatments available to tackle these signs of aging. Understanding the Under-Eye Area The skin beneath our eyes is delicate and prone to show the earlier onset of aging signs, including dynamic and static lines, wrinkles caused by muscle movement, and those present when your face is at rest. These developments primarily result from collagen loss in the skin's dermis layer....

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....

Trends in Skincare That Can Enhance Our Wellness…

I have always seen April as a renovating, transitional month, during which we start focusing on our summer plans. Just like Spring blossoms are everywhere, it almost feels like people are reinvigorated in the Spring. At MedAesthetics Miami, it is no different. During Spring, we start getting our clients ready for the summer. We not only focus on getting a beach ready body, but maintaining the quality of our skin is also high on our list. Here in the Magic City, life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful. So what are some skincare trends that we could focus on? We all know nutrition is important,...

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...

What Do Batman and The Current Crisis Have in Common?

I hope the title of this blog doesn’t shock anyone, given that I happen to be a Batman and Starwars movie lover. However, I don’t cease to compare the last Batman movie that I watched in which Gotham was being attacked by a fear gas, for which an antidote was needed. And I don’t want to sound naive, aloof, or insensitive, but while the current crisis is scary by itself, the fear factor surrounding it is exponentially worse. Yes, it will make people think and act hopefully with prudence, but lack of action also has its consequences. It can push people into depression, which is even worse;...

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...

Hyaluronic Acid: A Balancing Act

Balance in our lives is key to a successful journey; and that applies not only to how we live, but also to what we apply to our skin. Hyaluronic Acid is no exception to the rule. How hyaluronic is broken down in our bodies, the amount and rate, is part of a magical equation to maintain homeostasis. So what am I trying to imply? Cells can only function when there is enough water. And that is where hyaluronic acid intervenes in our skin. Hyaluronic Acid is part of the glycosaminoglycans that maintain water for our skin. Its presence hydrates and adds volume to our skin. Variations in its...

The Skin Care Revolution

One of the reasons I love what I do, is because the only constant is change and innovation. Of course there are many other reasons, but following the trends in skincare is no easy task. Looking for the best product, or the next life changing treatment in order to bring the best to our clients forces me to remain at the forefront of what’s out there, as well as up-to-date on the latest research and more.  Well not surprisingly, many new products are revolutionizing skincare. Words such as peptides, probiotics, growth factors, liquid collagen, super fruits, and stem cells are all around us. How do we know which...

Saving Your Skin From Pollution

Did you know that according to some sources pollution kills more people than HIV and malaria, and has been linked to lung, heart disease, and strokes? Their analysis is based on the fact that traffic pollution contains nanoparticles that can penetrate the skin with nitrogen dioxide, linked to cancer. Furthermore, these can cause wrinkles, irritate our skin, and result in a breakdown of our skin barrier. And while we think our homes are free from pollution, we can also be exposed to dust mites, pollen, pet dander, mold, radon, allergens, carbon dioxide and more. While I did not do the research myself, it does make sense that...
