Zerona Treatments Backed by Clinical Studies & Research

The Zerona cold, low-level laser therapy treatments for slimming the waist, hips and thighs with no surgery, no heating, no pain and no downtown seems too good to be true. Patients, however, can take comfort in the fact that Zerona by Erchonia scientists have been and continue to be committed to rigorously studying the benefits and effects of the Erchonia lasers through rigorous clinical studies and research.

Scientific proof shows how the Erchonia safely empties the content of fat cells. By creating a small pore in the protective membrane of the fat cell, the laser allows the fatty matter to seep out of the cell and then be passed out of the body through normal detoxification. Patients see on average a loss of 3.64 inches with absolutely no risks involved as there typically is with invasive surgeries.

You can receive this reliable, safe and effective non-surgical procedure at Midwest Medical Aesthetics for the figure you’ve always dreamed of but haven’t been able to achieve through exercise and dieting alone. Call today to set up your Zerona treatment right here in Kansas City.

Looking Better Is Worth It’s Weight in Gold!

Gold has been accepted as payment for goods and services for thousands of years and still is. So why shouldn’t I accept it as well? Quite frankly, it just made sense to me that it would benefit some of our clients who wanted to get rid of wrinkles, lose weight, or wanted to re-shape their bodies so they could look and feel younger. That’s something you can’t get with that old gold necklace you haven’t even worn in years until now.

So, here’s how it works: you can bring in your old gold and silver jewelry for a free appraisal and I’ll pay you in cash. You can do whatever you want with the money! You can use it to get any of the cosmetic services in Kansas we provide – a trip, a special present for yourself or for any other product you want.

You can bring in:

What Are The Benefits of Botox?

As a known practitioner of cosmetic treatments in the Kansas area, I’ve been asked numerous times about BOTOX® and it’s benefits. Well today I thought it was time I put together a brief overview of how BOTOX® helps changes people’s lives – and for the better.

So What Is BOTOX®?

BOTOX® comes from the term Clostridium Botulinum, which is a bacterium that is quite dangerous if it is consumed; however, as a cosmetic product that was created in the lab, it is quite safe to use.

Due to the fact that BOTOX® is capable of freezing muscles, it was originally created for the treatment of spasms, especially spasms of an overactive eye. Because of this, it was soon used to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and crow’s feet.

What Are The Benefits?

There are quite a number of benefits of BOTOX® injections from hindering excessive sweating to reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Although reducing the appearance of wrinkles is probably the number one reasons people chose BOTOX®, studies have shown that it’s also very effective in treating migraine headaches.

This is beneficial for both the patient and the doctor, as there are no side effects experienced when BOTOX® is used as a treatment for migraine headaches.

BOTOX® Stops Excessive Sweating

Reducing hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), is also one of the benefits BOTOX®.

Anti-pespirants are generally given to people who suffer from excessive sweating, however, there are some side effects associated with anti-pespirants, and furthermore they do not seem to always help certain people’s physical makeup.

But BOTOX® on the other hand, is able to balance out the problem, and provide patients with relief for months at a time.

As stated before, one of the benefits BOTOX® is relieving migraine headaches; however, it is now known how exactly it treats them.

There are some experts that have discovered that BOTOX® is able to block the sensory nerves that send pain messages to the brain, in addition to relaxing the muscles. As such, the muscles are less sensitive to the onset of pain.

What About Side Effects?

As with everything in the medical industry, there are always risks and side effects but with BOTOX®, the instances of such side effects are quite low. The only real negative affect a person feels when using BOTOX® to aid in the relief of migraines is that there can sometimes be an allergic reaction on the skin – mild burning sensations, slight bleeding or bruising of the skin at the site of the injection.

All of these side effects last for a very short time, and disappear on their own.

BOTOX® For Men?

It’s actually astounding – the numbers are growing each year and more men are turning to BOTOX®.

BOTOX® is especially beneficial for men. BOTOX® can provide relief for men who suffer from enlarged prostates which is a condition generally associated with men who are aging.

An enlarged prostate makes urination painful and more frequent,  50 percent of males in their 60s have enlarged prostate issues and for men in their 70s and older it’s much more common.

Fortunately, evidence indicates that the discomfort caused by an enlarged prostate may be minimized with injections of BOTOX®. For men who are suffering from severe symptoms, BOTOX® injections have been shown to shrink the prostate by as much as half. In most cases, painful urination is alleviated, and patients do not experience any of the negative side effects (including impotence) sometimes produced by the drugs used for traditional prostate treatment.

To be honest, with the above information we’ve only touched on a tiny facet of the bigger spectrum of the benefits of BOTOX® and in one of my future articles I’m going to list them out completely for you. I myself am truly amazed and I’ve seen BOTOX® rise up in the ranks of being one of the top cosmetic procedures requested so I know.

So give BOTOX® a try. Call the office of Midwest Medical Aesthetics at (866) 854-7181 to find out more about this amazing cosmetic product.

Top 10 Health and Beauty Tricks and Tips

  1. Coconut Oil ~ Rich with antioxidants and moisturizing power, you can use coconut oil to prevent anti-aging of the skin, to supply nutrients to your hair follicles or to exfoliate (just mix it with sugar).
  2. Eyelash and Eyebrow Tinting ~ Dying your lashes a blue/black and tinting your brows for a thicker more defined look will really make your eyes pop without having to worry about running mascara. Eyelash and Eyebrow Tinting services are only $25 each at Midwest Medical Aesthetics!

  4. Evian Water Spray ~ Always carry an Evian mist sprayer in your purse to keep your face hydrated and maintain a youthful texture.

Treating Enlarged Pores for a Clearer Complexion

While enlarged pores can be good for your skin’s moisture balance, they are bad for collecting and trapping blackhead-causing dirt, oil and bacteria. Midwest Medical Aesthetics wants to pass on some valuable information on treating enlarged pores from Daily Glow, a great source for health and beauty tips.

Pores can expand as a result of sun exposure, the aging process and clogging. Here are some skin care steps that Daily Glow suggests for reducing the appearance of your pores and keeping them clear to prevent acne-related problems.

What you can do . . .

  • Maintain a strict cleansing regime with a pore-refining product.
  • Use mud, clay or exfoliating fruit enzyme masks in between facials.
  • Exfoliate with a fine grain store-bought product two to three times a week.
  • Apply a prescription-strength topical retinoid medication at night to penetrate clogged pores.

What a licensed aesthetician can do . . .

  • A facial offers advanced technology and high-end products that provide a deep cleaning that can’t be achieved at home.
  • A microdermabrasion is the most effective way to disinfect and clear pores.
  • Acids and peels use the power of chemicals and fruit enzymes to dissolve clog-poring debris.
Find out which skin treatment is best for you. Contact Midwest Medical Aesthetics at 913.327.7175 to request a skin analysis or to schedule a customized facial, mask, microdermabrasion, peel or other treatment.

Major Announcement Adult Stem Cell Breakthrough

Luminesce Bottle

Have you heard of Luminesce? It’s a cosmetic skin treatment that is taking off in popularity and most simple because of the great results patients are seeing.

Dr. Nathan Newman has been a pioneer in the cosmetic field for a number of years.  More specifically, he specialized in adding volume to areas of the face and hands through fat transfer.  What he discovered was that his patients recovered faster , retained volume, and the skin rejuvenation process accelerated.

His method of fat transfer retained the stem cells.  The traditional process was to cleanse the fat which actually removed the stem cells.  Added to the fact is that there is a higher concentration of adult stem cells in our fat than any other part of our body.

What Dr. Newman’s original concept was to develop a wound healing product.   To do this, stem cells were taken from patient’s fat, then they were grown in a clinical environment.

What the stem cells produced was then taken and applied to the wounds.  The results were startling as you can see from some of these pictures.

By taking what the stem cells produce and blending it with a patent pending formula there is over 200 key human growth factors that transforms skin by gently replenishing natural levels of proteins like collagen and elastin.

Clinical Studies Reveal…

Here’s the results of the clinical studies with patients who used Luminesce:

  • 88% of patients saw improvement in overall skin appearance
  • 75%saw improvement in skin texture and smoothness
  • 70% felt an increase in skin firmness and elasticity
  • 70% saw a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles

It can also be used to help those who have Rosacea and Brown Spots.  Luminesce does not contain stem cells, rather the living product that those stem cells produce, making Luminesce in itself a living product.  It Penetrates deep to restore skin’s natural protein levels and build collagen levels.

This is an all natural and hypoallergenic–paraben free serum that:

  • Minimizes the appearance of fine lines and deep facial wrinkles
  • Delays the appearance of the aging process
  • Contains a natural wrinkle filler that preserves elasticity and firmness
  • Replenishes skin’s natural stores of growth factors and proteins that can become depleted with age.

I’m really excited to be able to offer Luminesce to you.  If you would like more information on Luminesce, just send me a call to (913) 327-7175 today!

Say Buh-Bye to Bald Spots with Neograft Hair Transplants

Neograft has patented the newest and most advanced technology procedure that allows for a less invasive hair transplant with real higher quality results. Offered here at Midwest Medical Aesthetics, Neograft treatments uses the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method as opposed to the older and more painful strip method, which involves surgically removing a strip of scalp from the back of the head.

Using the FUE method, in the Neograft treatment follicles are removed individually and transplanted into the balding areas, which is less painful than strips transplants and yields zero scarring. The Neograft’s dual action system technology for extracting follicles eliminates the need for torsion or heat that often damage the hair follicles, resulting in less actual hair growth. In five to eight months after their Neograft treatment, patients will see their own hair begin to naturally grow back!

Neograft hair transplants require little downtime, and patients often see full healing within 8 days. On top of all this, Midwest Medical is also proud to offer this transplant procedure because of its reasonable price. Contact Midwest Medical Aesthetics to learn more about our hair transplant treatments or schedule your Neograft appointment today by calling 913.327.7175 or requesting an online.
