Hormone restoration for men and women:
Hormones impact every function in your body, regulating your sleep/wake cycle, managing your moods, impacting body weight and composition and even modulating your body temperature. When hormone levels decline or become imbalanced, you may experience fatigue, sleeplessness, exercise intolerance, loss of muscle mass, hot flashes, decreased libido, poor concentration, memory loss, depression, and/or anxiety.
If you are experiencing symptoms you believe may be related to changes in your body’s hormonal balance, call for a consultation with one of our healthcare providers. We will meet with you individually to discuss your symptoms, changes you can expect as a result of balancing your hormones, risks and benefits of treatment, and various available treatment options. Based on your health history, blood testing, your specific symptoms and preferences, we will develop an individualized treatment plan for improving your quality of life and helping you achieve and maintain optimal functioning by restoring your hormone balance.
Hormone Treatment Options include compounded topicals, injectables, and bioidentical pellet implants. Bioidentical implants are derived from naturally occurring sources, such as yams and soy, and are designed to replicate the same chemical structure as the hormones that are produced naturally by your body. The implants provide more constant, sustained hormone levels and are typically implanted about 3 times per year.
Botox cosmetic injections:
Botox injections are non-surgical treatments that can help soften or eliminate frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines and prevent the formation of new wrinkles. Botox works by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles. Within 4 to 7 days wrinkles and lines relax or disappear, and each treatment lasts 3 to 4 months. The treatments are quick and non-invasive, with minimal to no recovery or downtime. Botox injections are an important component of any facial rejuvenation program.
As we age, our skin begins to lose the fullness that makes the face look young and vibrant. This can lead to a sagging, aged appearance. Facial fillers are sterile, gel-like substances that restore volume and gently lift the skin to restore collagen loss that occurs with the normal aging process. Facial fillers are administered through a few tiny injections in specific areas of the face. Natural looking results are immediately visible and will last from six months to over two years, depending on the filler and the area treated. Several types of facial fillers are available in the United States; all are proven safe and effective, and each is designed for one or several purposes, such as wrinkle reduction, cheek restoration, lip augmentation, or an overall 'liquid facelift'. Our fillers contain lidocaine to help improve comfort during treatment.
Juvederm is a smooth gel containing hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in skin that provides hydration and volume. It is for injection into are as of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur, especially around the mouth and nose and to correct loss of lip volume and definition.
Juvederm Voluma is the first FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to the cheek area to correct age-related volume loss, restoring the “apples” of your cheeks.
