How to Prevent Tooth Discolorations

Tooth discolorations can affect a person’s smile, confidence, and overall appearance. These discolorations can be caused by age, certain medications, diet, and lifestyle choices. Most stains are located in the upper layer of the tooth while some are located deep inside the tooth. Here at our Jacksonville Beach teeth whitening practice, you can have a brighter smile through the BEYOND™ treatment. It is effective on all kinds of stains, whether located in the upper layer or found deeper inside the tooth.

Despite the effective and safe treatment we offer, we still encourage patients to follow these tips to prevent staining.

Keep teeth clean by brushing every day. You have to brush your teeth at least two times every day. Apply the proper brushing techniques and use a toothbrush with soft bristles.

Floss regularly. The edges of stained teeth are the worst part because it is where plaque accumulates. Plaque attracts stains. By flossing properly, you can limit plaque and fight stains as well.

Stop smoking. It might be very hard to do, especially for someone who has been smoking for many years. Then again, you have to realize that smoking is not just bad for your teeth, but also for your health. Smoking contributes to different health problems. It also stains teeth.

Minimize drinking staining beverages. Coffee, colas, and teas stain your teeth. When you drink these beverages, it is better to finish a cup in a single sitting instead of sipping from the cup all throughout the day. Do not forget to brush after drinking.

Make use of a straw. By using a straw, you are reducing your exposure to beverages that can stain teeth.

Following these tips can help in preventing tooth discolorations. In case your efforts are not enough, especially for stains caused by heredity or use of certain medications, it is best to go for an effective and convenient teeth whitening treatment like BEYOND™.

Common Signs of Hormone Imbalance

As you age, your hormone levels start to change. Both men and women experience mental and physical effects when hormone levels take a dip. Although hormone replacement therapy is available to address these issues, it still pays to do hormone screening in Jacksonville Beach to prevent further problems caused by hormone imbalance. Here are signs that you may have hormone imbalance.

Persistent weight gain

Are you having a hard time maintaining a healthy weight? Perhaps your persistent weight gain is due to a hormone imbalance and not just because of your lifestyle or your diet.

Insomnia and decrease in sex drive

You may be having hormone imbalance if you are experiencing a decrease in sex drive. It all begins with insomnia. The production of your sex hormone is affected if you do not get enough sleep.


Do you feel tired even if it just lunch time? Feeling tired almost all the time is not normal. Your afternoon crashes and sluggishness may be caused by a hormone imbalance.

Anxiety and irritability

When you work too much or you are stressed out, you can easily become irritable. However, if you are anxious and irritable for no reason at all, it may be caused by an imbalance.

Hot flashes and night sweats

A lot of women experience night sweats and hot flashes, which are signs of hormone imbalance.

These symptoms can be caused by other problems, but you should not disregard the possibility of a hormone imbalance. To learn more about hormone screening, contact Thin Centers at 904-694-0992 today!

Care for Your Skin in 5 Steps

HydraFacial in Jacksonville Beach is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that improves the appearance of hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin tone, and enlarged pores. At the Thin Centers, every HydraFacial treatment is different. We individualize treatments to ensure that the patient’s needs are met and skin concerns are addressed properly.

The procedure is composed of two phases. The first phase takes place in the office and is the actual 5-step procedure while the second phase happens at home where daily care is done.

5-Step Procedure:

1.) Dead skin cells are taken away in order to reveal new and healthy skin. A small deplaning tool may be used to open up the pores. Debris found on the upper layer of the skin is then swept.

2.) Acid peel is done to loosen debris and dirt found in the pores without causing any irritation.

3.) Pores are cleaned out with the use of vortex suction. The extractions are automated and do not cause pain.

4.) Antioxidants and hyaluronic acid are infused to the skin to provide protection and to nourish the skin.

5.) Red LED light is utilized to make the skin look more firm and resilient. It also helps in improving the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Blue LED light is used for individuals who have oily skin.

HydraFacial has become the primary choice of many people when it comes to caring for the skin. To take advantage of the safe, quick, and proven results of HydraFacial, set up an appointment today with Thin Centers by calling 904-694-0992.


Lose Weight with HCG!

Are you looking for a quick way to lose weight? HCG diet in Jacksonville Beach can help you lose weight in no time. In fact, you can lose up to a pound of body weight per day. HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin, which is an all-natural human hormone. At the Thin Centers, you can start your own HCG program and help your body burn more fat and shed excess pounds.

The HCG diet was created by Dr. Simeon more than 50 years ago. It involves either the self-injection of HCG or placing HCG under the tongue. HCG has a lot of positive effects. It increases energy without getting nervous. It also promotes fat loss at the waist and hips. HCG improves a person’s mood and improves sleeping.

Although men and women who want to control their weight can safely use HCG, it does have some potential negative side effects. Then again, these side effects are mild and do not bother the majority of people who are in the program. If you are interested in losing weight with the help of HCG, it is best that you work with a qualified and experienced doctor to make the most out of the program and to ensure your safety.

At the Thin Centers, your safety is our priority. We will monitor your health by checking your weight and your blood pressure regularly. You will also have a personal health counselor who will answer whatever questions you have while you are on the program.

Look Young and Fresh with Botox

Women in their 50’s still want to look young and fresh that they use different beauty products just to erase those wrinkles and frown lines. Here at the Thin Centers, Dr. Anthony Capasso offers Botox in Jacksonville Beach to help women turn back the hands of time by relaxing wrinkle lines and frown lines. Botox is a very popular cosmetic filler that even celebrities have taken advantage of Botox treatments. Famous actresses who have claimed that they are Botox users include Nicole Kidman, Halle Berry, and Kim Kardashian.

Botox is effective in improving the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Crow’s feet around the eyes can be treated with Botox too. Skin that is aged and damaged will look fresh and young after Botox injections. Botox works by blocking nerve impulses to the muscles that are injected. As a result, the muscles cannot contract, allowing wrinkles to soften.

It is normal for women to have the desire to look good and feel good especially older women who want to reverse the signs of aging. Botox can take years off your face without going under the knife. It is a good alternative to a facelift as it is effective and does not have any downtime. Moreover, treatments are quick, making it perfect for people with busy schedules. Its effects can last up to 4 months.

A Quick Look on Reversing Aging Via Bioidentical Hormones

A woman’s life is interspersed with several changes — from the start of the menstrual cycle to  giving birth to menopause. Although the symptoms of menopause are often seen on a negative light such as hot flashes, night sweats and irritability, it should be noted that menopause itself is not a disease but a part of a cycle. Here at our practice, we have helped a lot of women cope with menopausal symptoms and reverse the effects of aging at the same time.

So What Exactly is the Goal of Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?

During menopause, your body tends to produce less of the hormones it used to supply in abundance, such as estrogen and progesterone. Apart from the common signs of menopause, reduced levels of these hormones may also make you suddenly appear older than you were before — from wrinkles to fine lines to sagging cheeks. This is where bioidentical hormone therapy can help!

The main goal of such replacement therapy is to provide your body with a sufficient supply of the deficient hormones that is molecularly identical to what your body used to produce. Consequently, you will notice that certain physical and physiological changes are positively restored after therapy.

Your Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

Each woman is unique — the dosing and frequency of each therapy is dependent of your current state of health and results of your laboratory blood tests. Hence the need for you to visit us for an initial consultation! In addition, if you’re a man and would want to reverse the effects of aging through bioidentical hormones, you are certainly welcome to visit us too! Call us at 904.694.0992 to schedule an initial consultation today. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
