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....

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.

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...

How Does Healing After A Treatment Affect The Results?

Many of the new skin tightening technologies create a wound in the skin that provokes for the tissue to be then healed resulting in new collagen and rejuvenation of the skin. This “injury” can be accomplished through chemicals, as in the case of a peel, through heat as with lasers and radio frequency devices, or, as in the case of microneedle and microdermabrasion, with the help of equipment directly on the skin. Many question its effectiveness alleging that whenever you apply heat, you will shrink the tissue and it’s the shrinking that causes the tightening effect, not the production of new collagen; or that the effect of...
