Kiss and Tell with Restylane

There’s nothing more romantic than a classic, big-screen kiss. However many times we may have watched a film, those passionate moments still have the power to send shivers down the spine.

As a special indulgence today, with Oscars just around the corner, here’s a little tribute to some of the best movie kisses from the Golden Age of Hollywood.

restylane-movie-kisses

Gone With The Wind
“You should be kissed, and often, and by someone who knows how.” Well, when you put it like that… No wonder Scarlett O’Hara, played by Vivien Leigh, swooned for Clark Gable’s ardent Rhett Butler in this 1939 epic!


To Have and Have Not
In this 1944 film, the kiss between Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall is all the more romantic knowing that the two actors fell in love while on set.


From Here to Eternity
It would be impossible not to include the sea-soaked kiss between Deborah Kerr and Burt Lancaster in a list of iconic kisses. In fact, the memorable moment when ocean waves rush up and around the two lovers on the beach goes beyond a simple kiss to become one of the most iconic movie scenes of all time, period.


In today’s rushed, busy, and messy world, it can sometimes seem impossible to reach the level of sophistication and romance that these stars achieved effortlessly. But in fact, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Injectable treatments to enhance lips are an easy and convenient way to add a touch of old-fashioned glamor and passion to your appearance, and you’ll be amazed at how stylish and confident you’ll feel.

restylane-movie-kisses-product

For patients over 21 years of age, Restylane is the first and only FDA-approved choice for lip enhancement. This safe and natural injectable filler subtly enhances lips beyond what cosmetics alone can do, providing fullness and definition which can last up to six months.

We have extensive experience using Restylane. The procedure is simple and convenient, optimizes your comfort, and provides nearly instantaneous results.

The best part is that Restylane™ can last up to 18 months with only 1 follow-up treatment at either 4 1/2 months or 9 months. By targeting specific areas using the right treatments for each you can basically get a facelift without all the surgery, the cost, and there is virtually no downtime.

30 Million Women Suffer From Hair Loss?

Kansas City Spa LaserCapYou probably didn’t know that over 30 million women and over 35 million men suffer from Hair Loss, and the results can be devastating. Plus 50% of women complain of hair thinning by the age of 50.  Losing hair is highly damaging to a person’s self-confidence. Treatment options for hair loss include medications (oral and topical) and hair transplantation; however, they are not always desirable due to cost or side effects.

Announcing a New Device on the Market – it’s a Hat for Hair Loss.

LaserCap-lasercap

The LaserCap is a low-level laser device that can be placed into virtually any hat to combat thinning hair. It contains 224 lasers arranged in the shape of a dome and it is the only such device currently on the market that is intended for use away from your doctor’s office.

What happens while wearing the LaserCap?

While wearing the LaserCap, you may hear clicking noises; this is just the sound of the lasers powering up. The LaserCap is typically worn for 30 minutes, although your physician may provide you with individualized instructions. (As with all lasers, never stare directly into the LaserCap lasers while the device is on.)

What does the LaserCap consist of?

The LaserCap comes as a kit, complete with a carrying case. In addition to the carrying case, each kit comes with the LaserCap itself, a cap, a battery pack, and a charger. The battery pack plugs into a standard wall outlet and typically charges within 2 hours.

How soon does the LaserCap produce results?

Most patients see a thicker head of hair within 3 to 6 months of wearing the LaserCap. For best results, follow your physician’s instructions on its usage and make sure you use it on a regular basis, as stopping its use will not only prevent hair from further growing – it may also reverse any previous gains you may have achieved.

Benefits of the LaserCap!

LaserCap-banner_hair_loss

Convenience.  This is the biggest benefit – you can wear it while you’re driving to work, out gardening, or watching TV.

Discreet.  You can be out in public and no one will know that you’re having laser hair therapy done.

Quick and easy.  Studies have proven using laser therapy for 30 minutes every other day can help prevent further hair loss, but wearing the cap longer won’t help or hurt.

Safe.  There are no known side effects to laser hair therapy so people don’t have to be concerned. It can be used by anybody, even by people who have had hair transplants.  The laser does not emit ablative energy and is not hot. Hence, there is no risk of injuring the patient’s ski

Portable:  The unit is completely portable and can be inserted into the hat of your choice.  The LaserCap has a pocket controller with a rechargeable Lithium ion battery.

Guaranteed:  The LaserCap has the most number of lasers and strongest degree of stimulation, all with guaranteed results.

If you’re interested in learning more about how the LaserCap can help with your thinning hair problems, call our office today to schedule an appointment.

Crucial Facts About Cosmetic Fillers and You!

Crucial-facts-fillers-woman_clockIt seems that we are bombarded with the miracle of how we can turn back the clock and look younger simply by using any number of the plethora of cosmetic fillers on the market. Simply by injecting this products we are told it will have age-reversing abilities and will change our lives.

BUT the real truth is that the product by itself does not necessarily mean you’ll get the results you want. Otherwise anyone, even you, would be able to just insert a small needle in the desired area and get perfect results. I mean that’s what a lot of people do who are diabetics or have epi-pens for certain life threatening allergies.

It’s a fact that dermal fillers have revolutionized the field of cosmetic dermatology. But most people don’t understand how important the role of the dermatologists and/or cosmetic surgeons is.

Let me ask you, if you had a life threatening disease which required surgery, would you want a surgeon that had just graduated or one that has successfully performed that operation thousands of times? It’s not just a question of the product, it’s one of what you do with it!

There are many factors to be considered that most people never think of. So it’s important that if you are considering dermal fillers that you do the research to find someone who is experienced in the following areas.

Knowing how the skin ages: Fillers are just one tool used in anti-aging treatment, and the process of aging does not occur uniformly in all areas of the face. So it’s imperative that the person administering the fillers is knowledgeable on your type of skin and how it ages.

Being knowledgeable about the various types of available fillers: There are a host of fillers available, so it’s imperative to know about the various fillers, their ingredients, particles per mg, cross-linking, the presence of any additives and their shelf life before and after opening the filler.

Being familiar with the technique: There are various methods of injecting dermal fillers, and some of them can be associated with lumps, if administered incorrectly.

Being up to date regarding the approval status of the filler. Many people don’t realize it, but the procedure of injecting dermal fillers is considered to be a medical procedure and hence there is a quality check conducted by various approval bodies in various parts of the world to assert the authenticity and safety of the products.

So…who are you going to trust with your Skin?

I established Midwest Medical Aesthetics Center as the first freestanding medical aesthetics clinic in the Kansas City area and my clinic has been and is still the most comprehensive medical aesthetics facility in this area for over 18 years.

My patients tell me time and again that the reason they trust me with their skin is because I have the distinct ability to analyze their face and know where to place the fillers and which ones to use. They also keep coming back because my focus is on making them look BETTER not just younger.

They often tell me horror stories…

…about how other spas will inject fillers without even considering how the injection will look in relation to the rest of the face. And even though my patients tell me they would pay just about anything for my services, I still offer the best prices in town.

How to Lose Wrinkles in Your Sleep

kansas city spa woman mirrorIt happens to all of us. One day we wake up and look in the mirror only to see lines, wrinkles and dark spots that we swear weren’t there yesterday. But where did they come from and how can we get rid of them?

You see, as we grow older, our skin loses some of its self-healing properties. The natural process of cell rejuvenation slows and the skin loses some of its elasticity. We sometimes have to take extra measures to help this process along. Unpleasant wrinkles will appear at some point in your life, and if you’re not careful, you’ll allow the reality of aging to keep you from living life to the fullest.

Kansas City VI-Peel-before_afterNotice the difference in the clarity and tone of the skin in the “Before and After” photo!

The Vi Peel treatment is very convenient. It can be performed in our office and requires no pre-treatment.
After the skin is cleaned, Vi Peel will be applied topically to your skin. Patients typically experience a warm, tingly sensation that quickly subsides. The procedure takes only 20 to 30 minutes, but you must leave the peel on the skin for five hours following the appointment.

Peeling lasts 2 to 3 days and is easily managed with the post-peel kit that is included with the Vi Peel. For a week or two following the peel it’s best to avoid exfoliating products like glycolic acid and retinols. Avoid direct and prolonged exposure to the sun.

Once your skin has completely recovered and is finished peeling, you will notice a visible improvement in your complexion. Your skin’s appearance should continue to improve for the next 4 to 6 weeks, becoming firmer, clearer, smoother, healthier, and more youthful looking.

VI-Peel-productAnyone who wants to improve their skin’s tone and reduce blemishes may be a candidate for a Vi Peel. This is a tested and proven procedure that is used on individuals with a variety of skin tones. The Vi Peel was originally developed as a treatment for acne and acne scarring, and is still extremely successful at treating this sometimes frustrating condition in individuals as young as 12-years-old. Now we are seeing far ranging benefits.

So don’t feel guilty taking a little time out for yourself…you deserve it! To see if a Vi Peel is the right solution for refreshing your face in time for the holidays, just call our office today to schedule your complimentary skin consultation.

Look Great this Year with Allumera Therapy

allumera-faceAre you ready to “face” the people you only see once a year?

The holidays are such a wonderful time, full of good company and food, accompanied by the occasional long lost friend or relative showing up …armed with cameras! Holidays may be the only time that you see some family members, friends or colleagues all year. But is sun-damaged skin leaving you camera shy?

There are a number of ways to freshen your look for the holidays, but don’t wait too long!

Whether your favorite products just aren’t giving you the results you’re looking for, or you’re ready to take your anti-aging skincare to the next level, there is a veritable arsenal of treatments out there for you to consider.

A new procedure called Allumera Photodynamic Therapy will make you look dynamic in your photos. Allumera is a new photodynamic therapy used to decrease hyperpigmentation, pore size, and fine lines and wrinkles – all in a few treatment sessions. Allumera is well-tolerated and fills the gap for those looking for more than a chemical peel, but wish to avoid more invasive procedures.

This topical cream, suitable for all skin types (for both men and women) is distinctively formulated to improve every aspect of the skin’s appearance as it reduces signs of aging. Allumera is a gentle treatment; therefore it involves minimal downtime, but provides lasting results.

In a survey conducted three months after their last Allumera treatment:

  • 93% of people said their skin felt softer;
  • 91% of people said their skin felt more hydrated, moisturized and smoother;
  • 89% of people said their skin texture was improved;
  • 86% of people said their skin looked and felt healthier;
  • Over 86% of those surveyed said they would recommend Allumera to a friend.

In a five-month controlled, clinical study, consumers experienced a 44% reduction in the appearance of pores three months after their last treatment.

allumera-face_appliedDuring a treatment, we’ll apply this luxurious cream to your face, which must stay on one hour while you relax. Then the cream is wiped off your face, and facial skin is exposed to a red light source for about ten minutes. These sessions should be completed about once a month for three to four months in order to see full results.

Toward the end of the year, many people worry about how they will look for the holidays and what they can do to improve their appearance. We may have put things off that we’ve wanted to do but just didn’t want to take time away from our everyday activities.

Be honest with yourself and your doctor about how much time you really have and what you hope to achieve, as there are many options available, each with its own recovery and reward.

Who doesn’t want to hear: ‘You look great this year!’

If you’ve been considering a procedure to address the signs of aging, and freshen up your skin before all the cameras start snapping away, call our office today to schedule your complimentary consultation.

This is no time to neglect your figure! The holidays are right around the corner, and that means shopping, parties and party clothes. And let’s not forget the stress! Did you know that cosmetic procedures – such as Zerona – can not only improve a person’s outward appearance, but their overall well being?

zeronaHaving a Zerona treatment is just like a relaxing time at the spa! Here’s what you can expect in 3 easy steps:

  1. Upon arrival at our office, you will be greeted by one of our friendly staff members. You’ll change/undress and then lie down on our heated treatment table and covered up with sheets.
  2. A Zerona specialist will position the LipoLaser’s 5 laser heads over the area being treated.
  3. You will feel nothing during the procedure. The laser does not produce heat, so all you will see is a red beam of light rotating over your skin. Your treatment will take approximately 40 minutes.

zerona-testimonial

Think of the last time your waist was 2-3 inches smaller, your hips had that natural curve, and your thighs were thinner. With the Zerona Laser treatment you now have an alternative to a shapelier figure without having to endure the fear – and sometimes-painful process – of a surgical procedure.

It’s not about what you lose, but what you gain…your youthful appearance, your confidence, and your beauty. Reclaim the real you and say goodbye to stubborn fat for once and all!

zerona-before_after_examplesAnd the best news is that this procedure is about one third the cost of Coolsculpting (which sometimes works and sometimes doesn’t) or Liposuction.

Dermaroller FAQ’s

We were surprised by the number of questions we received from our last post about the Dermaroller! There were so many in fact that we decided to answer the most popular questions this week.

Dermaroller-FAQ-faq(2)

1. How quickly can I see results?
You will see results within 2-3 days after treatment. Because micro-needling stimulates natural collagen production at the cellular level, your skin continues looking smoother and firmer up to 8 weeks after treatment.

2. How many treatments do I need?
Depending on the individual skin condition, skin sufficiently resurfaces after 1-3 Medical Dermaroller procedures. To allow skin cell regeneration, you should wait at least 6-8 weeks between procedures.

3.What is the procedure like?
The micro-needling device used looks like a shaving razor with a drum. The drum can differ in widths, and is embedded with up to hundreds of fine micro-needles for penetrating the skin. The entire procedure is all natural and fast:

  • We’ll apply a numbing cream on the treatment area.
  • Then we’ll roll the micro-needling device across the treatment area, puncturing the skin in a specific pattern.
  • As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel or micro-wound.
  • This creates a controlled “injury” on and below the skin’s surface that triggers the body to “fill” these micro-wounds by producing new collagen and elastin, and by stimulating skin cell regeneration.
  • You can resume regular activities almost immediately.

4. How many treatments do I need?
Depending on the individual skin condition, skin sufficiently resurfaces after 1-3 Dermaroller procedures. To allow skin cell regeneration, you should wait at least 6-8 weeks between procedures. As aging continues, we recommend one refresher treatment every year.

5. If I use my micro-needling device more frequently will I achieve better results?
No. After every micro-needling procedure, time is required for the body to naturally allow collagen to mature. Performing a procedure any more frequently than every 6-8 weeks is counterproductive and only invites additional trauma and unnecessary costs.

6. Can I achieve the same results if I use a micro-needling device at home?
No. A Dermaroller procedure should be performed by a trained medical professional in order to obtain maximum results. Don’t be deceived into believing that you can get the same results as a trained medical professional by doing it yourself.

7. Can any one perform medical micro-needling?
No. Micro-needling is regarded as a medical procedure because it reaches deep into the dermis. It can cause damage when performed incorrectly. There is more to it than simply needling the skin.
