  • Artefill Super Sale! Don't miss this last chance to get yours!

    If you have been thinking about Artefill, this may be the last chance to get this remarkable product!! Artes Medical which developed Artefill for the United States became a victim of the sagging economy and went bankrupt in December. ArteColl, a similar, but less refined product has been in use for nearly 20 years around the world and is still available outside the USA. Some larger company may buy up the patents and revive Artefill but the economy may prevent that. In any case I have 14 of the .8cc Syringes which expire at the end of March 2009. Normally the company would take these expiring syringes and replace them with new product but that can't happen now. We have enough to treat 5 people with 2 injections between now and the end of March and 4 people with a single injection. We are discounting the price to only $900 per syringe, barely covering our cost for the product!! If it looks like you will need a second syringe and pay for it now I will drop the price of the 2nd syringe to $800. Most people will get a very nice result with two .8cc injections.
    Nancy and I are now one year out from our first injections. We had our first injection in Jan 08 and the second in Apr 08 and the results are indeed longlasting and don't seem to be fading at all. Check out our one year comparison pictures here to see what I am talking about. First Come, First Serve!

    "Body by Science" New Book By Doug McGuff M.D.,  Book Signing 10 February 09 


    Doug McGuff, M.D. who grew up in San Antonio and went to Medical School here and John Little are the authors of Body By Science.  A researched based program for strength training, body building and complete fitness in 12 minutes a week. Body By Science challenges everything you thought you knew about exercise and takes you deep inside your body's inner workings--all the way down to the single cell--to explain what science now knows about the role of exercise in human health. With the help of medical diagrams and step-by-step photos, exercise scientist Doug McGuff, M.D. and weight training pioneer John Little present the positive effects of high-intensity, low-frequency weight training, while avoiding the negative effects of traditional aerobic-centric exercise. Dr. McGuff will be having a book signing on February 10th at Inside Outside Wellness Center and Medical Spa.   Please Join us for this Event.

    Products, Vi Peel  for Acne, Pigmentation, Fine Lines and Improved Texture


    Inside Outside is now offering a New Chemical Peel.  This peel was developed by Dr. A. F. Kalil, of the Vitality Institute of South Beach, Florida. I have never been fond of peels as most of them in the past were painful and required length recovery if used for treatment of some of the more difficult skin issues such as acne, pigmentation and wrinkles.  For these problems, I have generally felt Intense Pulsed Light, Pixel Laser Resurfacing and faithful use of products were the best solution.  Dr. Kalil has taken however 5 different Acids, Phenolic Acid, TCA (TriChlorAcetic Acid), Salycylic Acid, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) and Retanoic Acid (Retin A) and put them all in a single "cocktail" at lower concentrations.  The acids all work in different ways to improve Acne, Rough Texture, Pigmentation and Some Wrinkling due to Aging and Sun Exposure.  The Peel is virtually painless.  On the 1st and 2nd day there is a sun tanned like look and peeling occurs on the 3rd and 4th day with complete recovery by Day 6 or 7.  It really is quite a remarkable product and combined with a good regimen of skin care products and maintenance peels and Diamond MicroDermabrasions.
