There is nothing like breaking a sweat at the gym and feeling empowered by the exercise. You see every drop of sweat as proof of your effort. In work and social environments, though, sweat is seen as unhygienic and embarrassing. Sadly, not everyone can control their sweating and have to live with anxiety. If you are one of these people, know that you are not alone and there is something you can do about it! Here at Aesthetica MedSpa, we have brought in the latest technology to help you get rid of your excessive underarm sweating for good.
This miracle solution is called miraDry. It is a quick and non-invasive procedure performed with a special hand piece. It does not involve any surgical incisions or cuts and there is no use of harsh chemicals and toxins. After local anesthesia is administered to the underarm area, the miraDry handpiece is placed on multiple areas and uses energy to eliminate sweat glands. These sweat glands do not regenerate, which allows for long-lasting results. After a recent clinical study, the average sweat reduction for patients was 82%. The results may vary, but most patients do report a dramatic reduction in their sweating. Another benefit of this procedure is that there is no need to clear your schedule for some downtime. You can continue with regular activities immediately following the procedure. You are even able to continue your exercise routine only a few days later.
To learn if miraDry is for you, come into our office for a free consultation. It is possible to wear your favorite light-colored and silk clothing again! There is no need for you to live with anxiety and embarrassment any longer. Call now (512) 899-2639 to finally resolve this problem.
As the skincare industry grows, so do the number of gimmicks. Promises are made left and right and many are not being kept. Our job is to recommend the best products and only sell those that uphold their promises. We personally try all of our products to ensure their quality. The best way for us to recommend our products is by sharing our own results.
One of the greatest innovations in the skincare industry that has garnered great attention is the Clarisonic. It is a sonic cleanser that gives a micro massage of 300 movements per second to provide the ultimate cleansing experience. It promises to “take your day off” by removing dirt, oil, and makeup for soft, smooth, healthy skin.
I personally have dealt with acne issues since my pre-teen years and had tried almost everything from cleansers to topical creams. I was just not seeing the results that I longed for. After doing much research, I decided the Clarisonic would be a great investment. I began using the Clarisonic brush morning and evening for 2 minute intervals. I read that it is common for the skin to initially purge and experience temporary break-outs. I had this experience, which at first was incredibly frustrating. I decided to stick with it, in hopes that my skin would eventually clear up. Just as my research said, I slowly began to see my skin making great improvements. I noticed a smoother complexion, while my acne scarring and dark spots slowly faded away. If I ever skipped a use, I could feel a remarkable difference in my skin. When using the Clarisonic, my pores looked clear and I truly felt that I had “taken the day off.”
Clarisonic recommends you replace your brush head every three months. I failed to upkeep with this suggested maintenance and waited until old brush head was in very poor condition. As a result of my failure to follow instructions, my skin began to regress until I stopped using the Clarisonic altogether. Suddenly, my skin took a turn for the worse. My acne was out of control and I began to delvelop dry patches. After a few months, I decided to purchase a new brush head for my Clarisonic and started using it again. I also began using the Obagi Clenziderm M.D. Daily Care Foaming Cleanser (which I will review separately). My skin had an incredible turnaround. It was smooth and my new scars almost completely faded. I rarely have blemishes now and my skin looks and feels better that it ever has before. The Clarisonic provides an ultra-cleansing feel which I can’t go without!
I’m incredibly happy with the results that the Clarisonic has given me. Everyone’s skin reacts differently to this product, therefore choose the correct brush head for your skin type based on your skincare needs.
We sell the Clarisonic Mia for $125 and the Clarisonic Pro for $248. The Clarisonic Pro has different speeds that can accomodate to your needs, while the Mia only has one speed. The Pro comes with a charging cradle, which is very convenient. The Pro also comes with a body brush head and attachable handle that allows you to reach other parts of your body for great cleansing. Come in today and experience the miracle of this product for yourself!
We all know and love our Botox. We trust that it will deliver the results our patients want and need. It has changed the lives of so many of our patients and even ours. We have acquired a new medication that can get you the same life-changing results. We know that trying a new medication can be frightening, but we care about our patients health and satisfaction and we would never recommend anything that was not up to our standards. We are excited to have found and share with you this new alternative. This new miracle product is Xeomin.
Xeomin for injection is a prescription medication used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. When injected, the Botulinum toxin type A acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent the muscle fibers from contracting. Xeomin is called a pure neurotoxin because it has the same active ingredient found in Botox, but it does not contain proteins. A theoretic advantage of this is that patients are less likely to develop resistance to Xeomin, which allows for continuos use. After many clinical trials, Xeomin has received FDA approval for aesthetic use. Results vary from person to person, but they are truly amazing. These results last about three months, but it can vary significantly between patients.
Xeomin is also very cost effective. When compared to Botox, Xeomin is more economical. We are currently offering a great deal for this wonderful procedure. Existing patients can try this for $8.99/unit, while new patients receive an incredible savings of $4.99/unit! This is a deal you DO NOT want to miss. Come in today to learn more about this new product! Call for a free consultation at 512-899-2639.
If you are unaware of the importance of SPF, you may be living with your head under the sand. Doctors, aestheticians, magazines, and news outlets have been stressing its importance tirelessly for years. If SPF is not part of your skin care routine, you must add one now. While sunscreens do keep you from burning in the sun, they also help protect against serious skin damage, fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. To give you more insight into the world of SPF, we have these ten tips to keep you protected:
1. Use your SPF as a separate skin care step. SPF should always be the last step before applying makeup. Do not rely on makeup with SPF alone, this is not enough protection .
2. Just because it is an overcast or a rainy day, SPF is still a must. The UVB and UVA sun rays will peak through the clouds and cause damage to your unprotected skin.
3. There is no such thing as 100% water proof or sweat proof SPF. Make sure to reapply throughout the day and after a dip in the pool.
4. Wearing SPF is not limited to your day at the beach or other outdoor activities. You are affected by the sun’s damaging rays during daily activities such as driving to work and running errands. Did you know that your office’s fluorescent lights give off harmful UV rays? They do! Apply a body lotion with a built-in SPF to make sure you have daily protection.
5. Don’t forget to apply SPF to your lips! They too are affected by the sun, which can cause wrinkles and volume loss.
6. Make certain your sunscreen has broad-spectrum protection. Protection from both UVB and UVA rays is recommended. A physical sunscreen of zinc and titanium is always the best defense.
7. Sunscreens have expiration dates too. If a date is not listed on your bottle, toss after one season of use.
8. Do not let your skin issues deter you from wearing sunscreen. We offer sunscreens made specifically for acne-prone skin, oily skin, dry skin, and skin exposed to the elements during endurance sports.
9. Do not leave your sunscreen in your hot car. Our Texas heat will break down your sunscreen and make it less effective.
10. Many sunscreens irritate the eye area. Do not let this hinder you from protecting this important area! Look for sunscreens that are specifically formulated for the eye area and always wear sunglasses with UVA/UVB protection.
We hope you have learned something new from these tips. Let these be a reminder of the importance of SPF. Here at Aesthetica, we offer an array of sunscreen options that will suit every skin need. Come in to find your new sunscreen today!
It is now June and in Texas it only means one thing: barbeque season. While we’re outside enjoying time with our family and friends, we want to beat the heat with shorts, dresses, and skirts. Some of us may cringe at this thought because we are uncomfortable with the look of visible leg veins. Varicose and spider veins are quite common in the United States with about 50-55% of women and 40-45% of men affected. There are many inevitable factors that lead to the development of varicose and spider veins like increasing age, pregnancy, and they are even hereditary. They are also not limited to your legs, but spider veins can also be found on the face.
Luckily, there are different solutions for leg veins. Sclerotherapy and the YAG laser are two different forms of treatment that helps minimize the appearance of varicose and spider veins. Sclerotherapy includes injecting a solution into the vein, which causes the vein walls to swell, stick together, and seal shut. It is the most common and effective method to remove these veins with about a 50% to 90% improvement. The YAG Laser treatment is used as a precise and accurate method recommended for facial spider veins, but they can be used in other parts of the body. These procedures require about three treatments for the average patient. More treatments may be necessary based on the severity of the issue. Come into our office for a free consultation to discuss if this treatment is right for you.
We are currently giving a special offer for leg vein treatment: THREE treatments for $999 (you save $125) and you receive a FREE compression hose (a $60 value). As we all know, summers in Texas are longer than average, so it’s still early to get those sexy summer legs!
