Supplement Weight Loss Strategies with a Healthy Breakfast

Healthy Breakfast

Breakfast is the most commonly skipped meal.  Ironically, it is the most important meal to eat. So why should you do your best not to skip breakfast during the hustle of your morning routine?

For starters, your body goes into a state of hibernation when sleeping, and eating literally “breaks” that “fast”.  It kick starts your metabolism into high gear, gives you energy to get through the next few hours, and makes you healthier in general.  It’s one of the most effective pieces to weight loss programs.

Breakfast should keep you lean — think about 25-30% of your daily calories.  These calories should be spread out to be about 50% carbohydrates, 25% (healthy) fats, and 25% protein.  The carbohydrates provide quick energy used to both replenish your depleted stores and move you through the day.  Healthy fats such as avocado and nuts digest slowly to prevent sudden hanger pangs.  Protein keeps your body satiated (full) and allows your body’s hormones to return to normal levels.

Working with professionals like those at Midwest Medical will enable you to continue moving with your life while knowing you are in good hands.  Whether you are structuring weight loss programs or undergoing cosmetic treatments (or hair cuts!), working with licensed professionals is crucial to maintain a high level of safety, and to get your desired results!

Top 3 Beauty Myths Busted!

Beauty Myths

The first place we typically hear of the best and latest in beauty news is from our own friends and family. And so of course we’re all ears when someone has a new product or service they’re ready to dish about. Although girl talk is often a fabulous place to learn, it also tends to be the place when beauty myths flourish. Someone hears a myth, believes it, and then shares with friends. Keeping up with what is true and what isn’t is important – so we’ve gathered for you the truth about the top three beauty myths!

Myth #1 – Tweezing makes hair grow back thicker.

Actually, hair texture is much more likely to be influenced by hormones and genetics.

Myth #2 – Sleeping on your side causes wrinkles

Well sort of, sleeping on your side or on your stomach causes sleeping wrinkles that aren’t necessarily indefinite wrinkles. To cut down on these wrinkles though, try sleeping on your back or on a satin pillowcase.

Myth #3 – Regular trims make hair grow faster.

This one couldn’t be further from the truth. The pace of hair growth is determined by plenty of other variables such as diet, genetics, and overall health. Wishing this one was true? Try hair extensions!

Do you have any other beauty “secrets” that you think might be myths? Share them with us and we’ll dig up some research for you!

Get the Best Eyebrows for Your Face Shape!

Heart Shaped Face

One of the wonderful things about our bodies is how each and every one is so different. We each create our own beauty routines based on different needs. Some of us may be hoping to lose a few inches around the waist, while others are hoping to add a few inches around the chest! Whatever the items are on your beauty wish list are, they must be customized to suit your unique needs. One of the most obvious examples of this type of customization is your eyebrow shaping which depends greatly on the shape of your face.

Here’s a quick rundown of the best eyebrow shaping for your face’s shape.

For a square face, a thicker brow line is good option for maintaining a natural and balanced look.

For a round face, an arched eyebrow is the best way to create an oval look that opens up your eyes and elongates the face.

For a longer face, the best eyebrows shape would be a longer one. A low arch allows the face to be opened up sideways.

For a heart shaped face, try shaping brows into a round arch to soften the pointed look of a chin.

Transform Dull Locks Into a Brilliant Look with DreamCatchers!

Hair Extensions

Whether you are a fan of the elegant ponytail or long, wavy locks, there’s no denying that having longer hair makes dressing up much more fun. Until now however, those of us with short hair didn’t have any promising options. We either had to wait for our hair to grow out, or we had to invest in cheap, damaging extensions. Fortunately, all of this changes when you choose to use our DreamCatchers.

Dreamcatchers are a far cry from the typical hair extensions you’ll find in many salons. These extensions are made from fine hair that can be styled or colored exactly how you like as you would with your real hair. Dreamcatchers also allows us to leave the cuticles intact while adding the extensions. This ensures that your hair stays manageable and strong, while giving new life to short or dull hair.

As we approach the fall season, give yourself something to look forward to! A new look, a new style… we have dozens of services that are perfect for welcoming a new season. Call Midwest Medical Aesthetics at 913.327.7175 to learn what services are perfect for you!

Some aspects of the beauty process are similar to adding the final touches to a dessert, and it just isn’t completely ready until it has those special ingredients! Similarly, we can work our tails off to showoff our great, new body, but what really finalizes the look is a bright, gorgeous smile to top it all off.

After you’ve finally achieved the look you’ve been waiting and working for, there’s no doubt that you’ll be all smiles. But to make sure those smiles reach their potential, they need to be white ones – and our BriteWhite teeth whitening is the perfect way to achieve this!

Developed by BEKS Incorporated, the technology involves the use of a Blue LED (Light Emitting Diode) to create a glowing smile. With BriteWhite, you won’t have to worry about any painful heat, gagging, long waits or pain. The process is simple and can whiten teeth up to eleven shades in less than twenty minutes!

Are you ready to put the final touches on your new look? To get a white smile of your own, just contact our cosmetic professionals at Midwest Medical by calling 913-327-7175.

Welcome Summer with a Bronzed Glow!

Air Mist Tanning

Since today is officially the first day of summer, what better way is there to kick it off than with a golden tan? The tanning options of today far exceed those we had in the past and with healthy, stunning options for tanning this summer, your skin will thank you.

Air Mist Tanning is the best option for maintaining the sun-kissed look without the damaging effects of the sun or tanning beds. What’s more, the ingredients in our tanning solutions even help moisturize skin, ensuring that your body gives off a beautiful bronze glow rather than the splotchy effects of inferior solutions.

To ensure that the solution is applied evenly and customized to your body, our tanning technicians do the spray tans themselves. The horror stories you’ve heard about spray tanning simply don’t happen when a custom spray tan is given.

This summer marks a new era for summer skin care and Air Mist Tanning is just one of the beauty regimens to take advantage of. Contact Midwest Medical Aesthetics at 913-327-7175 to schedule your spray tan today!
