Having a dedicated skincare routine is essential, but did you know you should be switching things up a little in the summer?
Many people stick to their regiment year-round, but as we are inching closer and closer to summer read on for some important tips and treatments that should be on your radar in the coming months.
Whether you’re dealing with extra oil, shine, or the occasional sunburn, we have some expert ideas for you.
If you keep up with the latest trends or follow beauty bloggers and influencers you may know this one, but it’s just a generally good tip to have in your beauty regimen arsenal.
Double cleansing is a good practice, but especially in summer when excess sweat, dirt, and grime can cling to our face and clog our pores. Wash your face once to remove the surface layer of dirt and then cleanse again to get a deeper clean.
Take Care of Sunburns
It’s okay—we’ve all been there, you left your house without sunscreen or didn’t reapply as often. While preventing sunburn is ideal, we know things happen.
If you do suffer a sunburn, even a minor one, be sure to treat it right away! Keep aloe at home or pick up some chamomile oil or calendula, all three are great for anti-inflammation and will soothe your skin
Squinting all summer long will have consequences for your skin, take things into your own hands, and try our injectables like Botox and Fillers! You can say goodbye to wrinkles with minimal downtime and without avoiding the sun!

Laser Aesthetics Body and Wellness is proud to be a certified BioTE® Medical provider of bio identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). We are committed to educating our patients about the benefits of BHRT and how hormone therapy, using the BioTE® method, is the ultimate foundation for good health. Our BioTE® certification means we are dedicated to providing the best hormone therapy available for men and women who want to age healthier and improve the quality of their lives. Using tiny subcutaneous cardio-activated bioidential pellets inserted just below the surface of the skin, the BioTE® method mimics how hormones are naturally released into the body. This allows a patient’s hormones to remain at optimized levels more consistently than creams, gels, and injections without the side effects that can accompany synthetic options. Fortunately, replacing the hormones your body no longer makes naturally with BHRT is an effective way to treat the uncomfortable menopausal symptoms in women. Some of the commonly reported signs and symptoms of female hormonal imbalance include: Hot Flashes, weight gain, decreased libido, fatigue, depression, mood swings, irritability, migraines, memory loss, insomnia. Men experience a steady decline in testosterone starting in their 30’s.

Acne Scars are an unfortunate result of inﬂamed blemishes surrounding or sometimes beneath the skin. These scars have a range of visible severity but often come with a look of red, somewhat dimpled skin. The face is an area that is heavily aﬀected by scarring with predominantly all cases being located on facial features such as the cheeks or chin. The good and bad of it is simply that pores are overﬁlled with oil, dead skin, and bacteria giving rise to the eventually scarring. The amount of these substances that enter the pores often determine how difficult the treatment will be. Some handle the presence of these blemishes better than others. However, if you are one that is bothered by the look of the scarring or feel you need treatment, microneedling is the solution for you. MDPen MicroNeedling is a safe, effective and minimally invasive procedure that applies micro needles to the skin creating a series of tiny punctures. Micro needling results include glowing, smoother and younger looking skin but without the downtime or trauma that is associated with laser or chemical treatments. MDPen rapidly creates a pattern of micro channels in the treatment area, leaving the skin smoother, fresher and more uniform. Numbing cream applied before the treatment makes the actual procedure virtually painless. Tabitha Nelson is a skilled medical aesthetician with many years of experience, whose supreme knowledge of the subject is very apparent. Her execution is ﬂawless and only available at Laser Aesthetics Body and Wellness. If you or a loved one is considering microneedling, please call us at 901-388-8887.
Diets seem to be all the rage now a days. Weight loss is on the forefront of people’s minds,
and it’s not just that. This weight loss needs to be as quick and seamless as possible. So what
do people do? They turn to the newest diet that promises to be the way to lose pounds and lose
pounds fast. Do these diets work? The funny thing is that these diets will work more times than
not. However, the demands that come with these eating restrictions are not sustainable. Take the Keto diet for example. It’s very popular and uber effective. However, it requires an intake of less than 50 grams of carbohydrates a day. In the short run, this will absolutely achieve the desired results. In the long run, this would be extremely damaging to the health of the human body. Ideally, we want to create eating habits that are not only healthy, but essentially evolve into a lifestyle of eating. What is an eating lifestyle? It looks a little something like this: Well-balanced intake of proteins, carbs and fats. For example: around 200 g of carbs, around 50 g of fats, and 1 gram of protein per body weight. Food intake varies from person
the person and everyone need to find what works for them because only consistency will yield results. But what about foods like pizzas or French fries? Must they be given up all together? The answer to this is to implement one cheat day per weak. Treat yourself, don’t cheat yourself. In simple terms, don’t go overboard with the junk food and keep a nice clean diet. If you still are uncomfortable with the concept of a diet or have no idea where to even start, give Laser Aesthetics Body and Wellness a visit. We offer medically supervised weight loss program and we will find just the right one for you. Give us a call at 901-388-8887 and let’s get started on the journey to healthier you.
What in the world is CBD Oil? Well to answer that question, we ﬁrst must know what CBD is. Cannabanoid is oﬃcially its title, and the substance itself is an extraction from the bud of a hemp plant. A perception that has been built about this substance over the years is based upon its “mysterious” nature. However, it really isn’t that mysterious at all! Our body makes a molecule called anandamide that activates our endocannabinoid system. Activating this system has positive effects on anxiety, sleep, depression, inflammation. The ingredients that are found in CBD oil can replace anandamide, thus helping with anxiety, sleep, depression. Josh Regel (Pharm. D.) at Regel Pharmacy set out to find quality CBD oil manufactured by the company that he could trust. He was looking for Certificate of Analysis (potency of the product) and does the company test for contaminant? Ananda Professional met every qualification. If you’re interested in what CBD oil can do for you, call Laser Aesthetics Body and Wellness at 901-388-8887 or Regel Pharm lab at 901-757-9434
The health wave of excitement that came with the start of the new year has started to wear oﬀ. That enthusiasm that once was there before a daily visit to the gym has been replaced with preworkout dread. You hate to see it. All must be lost, right? Not even close, nothing is ever completely lost ! Health is deﬁned as a person’s mental and physical condition. We’ll focus on some key components to the “physical” side of things. Let’s say, for example, a day get’s completely away from you. You can’t make your usually trip to the gym and whole pizza manages to ﬁnd its way into your stomach. Now, this kind of behavior often can blow the ﬂood gates wide open. Unhealthy eating and missed workouts are a problem. However, don’t let one day discourage you from continuing your healthy lifestyle. Consistency is supremely important. Just stay the course and realize that setbacks will happen. The process can get long and draining, but above all else, trust the process. A healthy life is a marathon, not a sprint. 1 Corinthians 6: 19-20 states, “ Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? Your are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” Treat the body with respect, as it is a dwelling place for the Lord Almighty. The journey may be diﬃcult, but stay strong and have faith. If you wish to ﬁnd out more about how to lead a healthy life, and stay the course set up a free consultation with one of our highly qualified medical professionals . Call Laser Aesthetics Body and Wellness at 901 -388-8887 to find encouragement and tips to help with the weight loss journey.
Health and Wellness go hand in hand with one another. While the term health is very broad and encompasses many subjects, ideal weight along with wellness are key components of a healthy lifestyle. Weight loss can seem daunting but boils down to two simple actions. These actions are the following: Exercising and Eating. Exercise is an essential part to the weight loss process; however, it doesn’t have to be as bad as one may expect. Spending hours upon hours at a gym will actually hurt your body more than it will help it. A simple 30-minute cardio session coupled with some individualized weight lifting will suﬃce in burning oﬀ calories. While the gym is an ideal location to get a workout in, any form of exercise will accomplish the desired goal. A thirty-minute walk in the morning before you make your morning commute goes a long way. Food can be seen as the problem by many, but it can actually be your saving grace. Many studies have shown that weight loss is around 75-80% diet, leaving only 20-25% for exercise. What you eat matters! Low-carb, high, lean protein meals are the way to go to reach maximum weight loss potential. The idea behind this kind of meal revolves around an inverse relationship between muscle and fat. Fat feeds oﬀ of carbohydrates while muscle feeds oﬀ of protein. The before mentioned meal will shrink fat cells while enlarging muscle cells. In either exercising or eating, one constant reigns supreme: committing to consistency will produce the desired results. With many diet programs on the market, it can be confusing to know which one is best for you. Laser Aesthetics Body and Wellness offers free consultations regarding weight loss and wellness. To ﬁnd out all you need to know about the ins and outs of weight loss give us a call at 901-388-8887.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 “Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.
Sports physicals, also known as prep-participation exams, are required at most schools to determine if a child or adolescent is safe to participate in sports or physical activity. Some schools even provide a PPE. If it is not required by your child’s school to receive a sports physical, it is still highly recommended. Here are some reasons why your child should get a sports physical:
