Are You Looking To Turn Back The Clock?

Fillers-Done-Professionally-woman_faceTwenty years ago, if you wanted to get rid of facial wrinkles, sagging skin, and fill those deep furrows, there was basically one way to do it – going under the knife for a face-lift.  But today, a range of dermal fillers can be injected into those crow’s feet, marionette lines, thinning lips and furrows between the brows, taking years off the face–and all can be done during your lunch hour, with no invasive surgery and little recovery time.

Dermal fillers, also known as “injectables” or “soft-tissue fillers,” do just what their name suggests — they fill in the area under the skin. Some fillers are natural and some are synthetic, but they all work to give a youthful appearance to aging skin.

But how do you know whom to trust to effectively make you
look like you did 15 years ago?

Many medispas, laser centers, plastic surgery centers and doctor’s offices offer injectables. Here are some important questions to ask when considering any provider.

  1. How much of their service is devoted to injectables? In order to get the best possible look with injectables, you need a practitioner who has dedicated themselves to this procedure and understands how each product works to restore your natural youthful look…not someone who does it on the side.
  2. Do they offer industry recognized safety measures? No matter how rare an adverse reaction may be, the prudent professional carries medication to reverse dermal fillers and to plan for an allergic reaction.
  3. When was the last professional seminar they attended? The field of aesthetic medicine is always evolving. Don’t settle for a practitioner who is outdated.
  4. Does the practitioner have quality time for you? So many clients come to Midwest Medical because their last practitioner was too busy to spend time with them.
  5. Do you like the atmosphere? It’s important to feel indulged when you’re getting luxury services, without paying too much.
  6. Do you feel pressured to buy? Large, corporate laser centers and medispas often push services while offering tempting “financing”. Regretful clients often buy services that don’t result as promised.

So why choose Midwest Medical Aesthetics?

Micro-needling: it’s not just for your face!

We’re sorry if we misled you!

We recently told you about micro-needling, which is the latest and greatest in optimal skincare tone and rejuvenation therapy.  But we may have misled you to believe that it can only be performed above the shoulders.

Micro-needling: it’s not just for your face!

Medical micro-needling can be used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face and body by treating:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines;
  • Sagging, thin skin;
  • Scars from acne, chicken pox, burns, and surgery;
  • Stretch marks;
  • Cellulite;
  • Photo-damage;
  • Pigmentation;
  • Dilated pores.

“Stunning” results:  welcome to the future of non-surgical skin tightening.

micro-needle2-skin_damageThe major cause of advanced aging of our skin is the loss of our collagen and elastin matrix. Collagen loss is influenced largely by our genetics as well as our environmental and personal care habits. Burning and excessive accumulated UV exposure, smoking, poor nutritional habits, lack of consistent skin hygiene all can act to accelerate collagen loss and lead to premature skin aging.

Approximately 75% of the dermis (the layer of skin beneath the epidermis) is made up of collagen. In healthy skin it’s arranged in bundles known as a “basket-weave” formation, which provides the overall skin with its strength and prevents tearing and breakdown. Being that collagen decreases as we age, the skin tends to become thinner and sags as we get older.

So what are the benefits of micro-needling, you ask?

  • Visual and noticeable improvement in a few days from the first treatment;
  • Cost effective – there’s no expensive investment needed;
  • Short healing time (typically 1/2 ~ 1 day);
  • No permanent damage or injury;
  • No bruising, infection, discoloration or other complications;
  • Extremely high absorption of any active ingredients;
  • Almost all skin types can be treated;
  • Thickens the dermis without damaging or removing epidermis.



Micro-needling can be a good choice for people who have not had success in reducing the look of wrinkles or deep acne scars with other types of treatment. The cost is lower than many other procedures, the recovery is easier and the risk is less than that of more invasive treatment options.

Imagine getting rid of those pesky fine lines and wrinkles…or finally saying “goodbye” to those embarrassing pregnancy stretch marks or stubborn cellulite.

Just call our office today to schedule a complimentary consultation to determine if micro-needling is the right choice for your health and beauty goals.

Medical Breakthrough to Combat Aging, Wrinkling and Scars

medical-breakthrough-woman_mirrorSelf-improvement is typically high on our list of New Year’s resolutions. Getting fitter at the gym, starting a new diet, quitting smoking or promising to never drink again as your head pounds and throbs from all the champagne toasting.

But your self-improvement resolutions shouldn’t be limited to your body.  What about your skin?  Is your skin suffering from the aging process?  Do you have more wrinkles, brown spots and fine lines?

If you answered “yes”, have we got GREAT NEWS for you!

medical-breakthrough-RF_micro_needling_technology(2)Introducing the fractional RF micro-needling technology!  This is an innovative procedure that uniquely treats the targeted areas through rapid penetration of specially designed insulated micro-needles without causing damage to the epidermis.

The treatment can be performed on any area of the body for Acne scars, skin tightening, discoloration, large pores, hand skin wrinkling and sagging, necks wrinkling and sagging and even stretch marks.

The procedure is performed with 36 small micro-needles that are “stamped” on the skin.  In addition, Radio Frequency energy is imparted down the needles so that the tightening is occurring at the same time the skin rejuvenation is being performed.

This gives a more uniform deep tissue warming that will stimulate the collagen and produce new collagen fibers. The whole face will take approximately 20-30 minutes to treat depending on the area being treated.  Three to six treatments are recommended over time with 4-6 weeks being the optimal interval between treatments.

There is no downtime!  Immediately after a procedure, the skin may appear pink and will be a little “numb” from the topical anesthesia that was used.  There is no pain during the procedure!  It is actually more comfortable than an IPL or dermaroller treatment.

After just a few treatments you’ll see a noticeable difference because the combination of micro-needles and radiofrequency leads to a more substantial improvement in skin quality and texture. This combination also allows the procedure to treat a variety of concerns such as skin tightening and brightening, pore size reduction and stretch marks. It is also effective in scar treatment such as deep acne scars, ice pick scars, atrophic scars, burn and operation scars.

The Benefits of Micro-needling:

  • Tightens skinmedical-breakthrough-before_after
  • Decrease wrinkles
  • Decreases pore size
  • Decrease brown spots
  • Decrease scars
  • Increase the thickness of the skin
  • Increases collagen
  • The results are long lasting.

Makeup can be applied in a few hours after the procedure.

First of all I’d like to wish you a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!  It seems every Year we look forward to the New Year with hope and a whole bunch of promises to ourselves.  You know, they’re the ones we made last year before we fell off the wagon…and we’re not alone on this.

According to Time.com here is a list of:


  1. Lose Weight and Get Fit
  2. Quit Smoking
  3. Learn Something New
  4. Eat a Healthier Diet
  5. Get Out of Debt and Save Money
  6. Spend More Time With Family
  7. Travel To New Places
  8. Be Less Stressed
  9. Volunteer
  10. Drink Less

Here’s some GOOD NEWS!  I can help you with #1 and #4 which will also help with #8.

For the last couple of emails I’ve given you some tips on Holiday Sliming Tips, the HCG Diet, How to Lose Weight and the Lapex and Zerona Laser. And let’s not forget that regular exercise will improve your health.

However losing weight in the right places is complex.  And that’s why here at Midwest Medical Aesthetics we have so many different options for you to choose from.  Each person’s situation is different and it takes an expert to be able to understand your individual needs and formulate a plan that will work for you.

Here are 5 tips that will help you keep holiday weight gain at bay and lose a few pounds by new year.

new-year-resolution-track_food1. Track your food. That means all of it, from the spoonful of cookie batter you ate while baking to the free sample of ham at the grocery store. Plan your meals and snacks in advance so you can enjoy your favorites and still stay on track.

new-year-resolution-calories2. Look up calories before you bite. Calculate the nutrition information in your favorite holiday foods so you can add them to your tracker.

new-year-resolution-fitness23. Make fitness a priority. Food is only one part of the equation that determines whether you’ll lose or gain weight. Fitness is just as important.

4. Schedule your workout like an appointment. Add your workouts to your calendar so that other obligations don’t get in the way of your gym time.

5. Don’t make mountains out of molehills. It’s easy to go over your calories one day and feel like a failure. But remember that it takes much more than one day of overeating to thwart your progress.
