Microdermabrasion is a common procedure available at many facilities. In the quest for youthful, vibrant skin, men and women share a common desire: to look their best, regardless of age. Microdermabrasion is derived from an age-old treatment called dermabrasion. Microdermabrasion, however, is modern and uses a gentler approach. It features a patented dual control system and adjustable applicator head that delivers a steady, effective stream of fine crystals directly onto the skin. The old surface is removed, leaving it smooth, fresh, and rejuvenated. It erases epidermal layers at varying depths on a safe, controlled manner. This approach respects the integrity of skin and promotes even healing. Maintaining level cellular growth on the surface aids in the youthfulness of the skin’s appearance. On average, we renew our skin surface every 10 days. However, with age, poor health, or lack of care, cell renewal may be considerably slower. Regular microdermabrasion treatments improve many skin conditions, to create a healthy, balanced skin surface.Microdermabrasion treats the following conditions: Aging and sun-damaged skin, some types of acne scarring and acne, altered pigmentation, stretch marks, fine lines and enlarged and clogged pores.Microdermabrasion and New Cellular Growth: There are many factors that can influence cellular regeneration and epidermal growth. For instance, the skin’s natural response to excessive sunlight is to become thicker. This can result in slower shedding and a dry, rough skin. Acne sufferers, for example, may retain their skin cells, causing furthere congestion and thickening of the stratum corneum (top skin layer). Other factors, such as age, genetics, hormone balance, lack of minerals, and inadequate diet, all influence epidermal cellular turnover and the production of new healthy cells.But what about if you don’t have time to come to ETERNAMD for a series of MICRODERMABRAION. Dr Mercado has developed a procedure that he called “THE TRANSFORM” procedure: This procedure is a resurfacing laser of 10 micrones. It is dones without anesthesia, since there is no pain involved. It can be done the same day of the consultation or combined with other lasers at the same time such as IPL. Let’s say you want to look your best for a party or an important meeting or you are getting married or you are schedule for a job interview. The TRANSFORM might be the option for you. You can go back to work the same day. You just need to keep your skin moist using a medical grade moisturized rich in hyaluronic acid and applying collagen directly on the skin. The results are a clean, healthy skin. It does the same as the microdermabrasion but it is more intense. No down time. Within the TRANSFORM PROCEDURE a special ultrasound with collagen application is performed after the 10 micrones resurfacing laser for 20 minutes. Then you are just ready to go!!For any questions or consultation please call ETERNAMD, Medical Rejuvenation Center at 407-771-0404 or go to www.eternamd.com or www.lipoblastmd.com

Everybody is asking about Growth Hormone and its use. As we age all our hormones decline such as Growth Hormone, testosterone, DHEA, estrogens and progesterone. The theory behind is that replacing the deficiencies and keep them under physiologic dosages (the amount that a normal people might produce), not using HIGH DOSAGES.The symptoms of growth hormone deficiency might produce in adults: lack of inner peace, chronic anxiety, tendency to be depressed, low self-esteem, lack of self-confidence, great difficulty in performing multiple tasks, feeling powerless, lack of concentration, excessive emotional reactions, tendency to social isolation, poor social integration, poor tolerance to stress, poor quality of life, exhaustion with poor recovery, cold intolerance, light sleep, poor apetite for meat.Growth hormone might help you to recover after exercise. But remember exercise will release your growth hormone as well. However intense exercise such as training for a marathon, might lower all your hormones as well. Growth hormone hasn’t showed improvement in athletic performance.Before any treatment with any hormone, the patient will need an appropiate evaluation. At eternamd we provide state of the art evaluation that includes blood test, 24 hour urine collection, DNA test. Also a comprehensive 60 page history.Call eternamd for our age management consultation with Carlos Mercado, MD at 407-771-0404 or go to our webpage www.eternamd.com to check our program.

There is a solution now for those people who sweat underarms or armpits. Many people feel embarazed by the sweating sensation especially if they have to work on positions such as for the public such as waitresses, bartenders, or any employement that has to do with the public.At eternamd we use a combination treatment using BOTOX combined with LASER HAIR REMOVAL. The procedure consists on identifying the areas on the armpits that sweat the most. The area is painted with a special solution. In that way then the BOTOX is applied. The treatment is painless, and is done within minutes. Patients will start noticing improvement in 3-5 days. Usually last 4 up to 8 months, depending on the size of the area and how much botox is injected. Then the procedure is followed by LASER HAIR REMOVAL. The combination is even more effective and aesthetically much better.If you suffer from HYPERHYDROSIS or too much sweating underarms/armpits then call for a consultation with our physicians at eternamd or call at 407-771-0404 or go to our website www.eternamd.com

One of our new resolutions is to try to keep our weight down and being physically and mentally active. At Eternamd we specialize in weight reduction, exercise and bio-identical hormone replacement. It is important to have adequate testing. At eternamd we do blood test, 24 hour urine collection, DNA test as well as a comprehensive 60 pages medical history. Then our physician study your case and does a complete physical examination and makes a customized plan for you. Hormones are difficult to evaluate as well as to manage, since our endocrine system is like an orchestra, everything needs to be synchronized in order to work effectively. We might use progesterone, estrogen, growth hormone, testosterone, DHEA and others depending on the deficiency. Many symptoms of hormones overlap so it is important to match the symptoms with the laboratory tests.Make sure you have a proper evaluation, by a physician that has been trained in hormone modulation.Call for a consultation at 407-771-0404 or go to www.eternamd.com

The question is how to chose a medspa: There are common questions to ask before going to treatment to a medspa.1- MEDSPA: It means MEDICAL SPA. In reality the name should be “AESTHETIC CLINIC”. This is the name being used in Europe and South America. In other words it is a medical facility. Remember the procedures needs to be done under aseptic measures.2- RUN BY DOCTORS: A medical spa needs to be run by doctors. There is a bill that applies to supervision of medical spas. In reality all procedures should be done by medical doctors including laser hair removal. Ask how many years of experience the doctor has been doing botox, fillers or other aesthetic procedures.3- MAKE sure the facility you chose is dedicated fully to aesthetics. Some doctors have the medspa on the side, while they perform their traditional practice, such as family practice or internal medicine. Ideally your doctor has to be dedicated in that facility to do aesthetic procedures.4- Chose a medspa that provides good customer service, provide educational seminars, has aesthetician dedicated to teaching as well.5- Most of the services are not covered by insurances. However an exemplary medical spa should offer both: AGE MANAGEMENT and AESTHETIC procedures. For example at ETERNAMD, we provide both. Our doctors has been trained in the USA as well as in Europe and South America.6- A complete medical spa should provide full services such as BODY SCULPTING using therapies such as mesotherapy, lipodisolve, laser remodeling, fat treatment, face recosntruction with fillers , botox and resurfacing laser. Also acne evaluation and treatment such as using the blue-U light and Aminolevulinic acid as other alternatives.Cellulite evaluation and treatment should be offered.At ETERNAMD, which is a comprehensive medical spa, treat patients “INSIDE” and “OUTSIDE”, using Hormone modulation with bio-identical hormones, exercise and diet as well as aesthetic procedures. As a final conclusion, make sure that the procedures are done by medical doctors under aesthetic situation.
