Anti-Aging Treatment - Richardson, TX
Turn Back the Clock with Ease
Everyone gets older, but some seem to age faster than others. There are 50 year olds that look like they are 30, and 40 year olds who look and feel like they are 60. Why is this the case? Often, it’s because the body naturally stops producing certain hormones as we age, ones that are essential to the metabolism, muscle mass, and mental function. Rather than a cream or magic “cleanse” that promises to turn back the clock, simply supplementing depleted hormones can literally have the body running like it did back when it was 25, enabling a person to live their best life where age is simply a number.
Why Anti-Aging Treatment is So Important
The United States, as a whole, is becoming an older nation as the Baby Boomer generation continues to age and skew the average age of the population. Because of this, anti-aging treatment is quickly becoming the fastest growing segment in all of medicine. More and more people are living longer and longer, and they want to do so to the fullest. People are getting married and starting careers well into their 40s, 50s, and beyond. Of course, in order to do this, they need to be healthy, active, and mentally sharp, all things which natural aging works to dismantle. Fortunately, thanks to advancements in the realm of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) in the past decade or so, people are now able to lessen and even reverse the effects of aging so their golden years can shine a little brighter.
Types of Anti-Aging Treatments
Unlike the endless amounts of anti-aging treatments you might find online, we’re not here to offer you the proverbial “fountain of youth.” Rather, our anti-aging therapies are simply designed to replace what the body naturally needs to be its best. By supplementing essential hormones, we can help patients maintain muscle mass, lower body fat, and keep the kind of energy previously thought reserved only for 20-somethings.
It is well documented that testosterone production naturally goes down as we age, about 1% a year for men after age 30. As a result, weight gain, muscle loss, fatigue, and even depression can set in. Of course, this isn’t just a male problem either—many women suffer from the symptoms of low testosterone as well. Fortunately, all it takes is a quick blood test to figure out if someone is suffering from low testosterone, and then regular injections can quickly bring the body back to its natural levels, seemingly restoring overall wellness overnight.
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone that helps jumpstart the metabolism so that it solely burns fat while also preserving the lean tissue of the muscles. With an HCG treatment, a patient on a diet and exercise routine will not only be able to develop a fit and toned body faster than expected, but they’ll even have loads of energy to do so.
Sermorelin is another name for Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH), and it stimulates the pituitary gland to produce optimal levels of Human Growth Hormone, which can help improve everything from a person’s energy level to their healing capacity and even the appearance of wrinkles. Basically, it allows a person to benefit from increased HGH without the risks of direct HGH administration.
Vitamin D is actually a hormone that is naturally produced by the body, most notably due to exposure to UVB radiation from the sun. Vitamin D deficiency is common among Americans who either don’t get much sun exposure or are overweight because increased body fat can reduce the body’s ability to absorb and use it.
When it comes to aging, it has been shown to actually slow down the aging process by literally decreasing the natural degeneration of DNA that occurs over time. Regulating a person’s Vitamin D levels so they are perfectly balanced can help add years to their lifespan and prevent an aged appearance as well.
To say that B12 is an important vitamin would be an understatement. For one, it helps make both your DNA and red blood cells! The body doesn’t naturally produce B12, so people have to get it through their diet, but many end up developing a B12 deficiency. This causes a wide range of symptoms, including a loss of balance, depression, fatigue, and memory problems. With a consistent B12 supplement, we can help people increase both their energy and mental acuity so they are able to better live their lives.
As we age, the skin naturally loses elasticity and develops wrinkles, especially on different areas of the face. Botox has long been shown to help lessen and even eliminate facial wrinkles all with a few strategically placed injections. It works by paralyzing the muscles that cause the skin to fold, all without compromising a person’s ability to show expressions. In just 10 minutes, we can reduce wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes, nose, lips, cheeks, and even the neck to create a more youthful appearance that lasts for months at a time.
With age, certain areas of the face can begin to sag or thin, such as the lips and cheeks. Depending on your anatomy and the way we want to revitalize your face, we can administer certain filler injections in strategic places so that your facial features remain full and youthful for as long as possible. Some of these fillers include neurotoxins like Botox, hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm, and many more. During your consultation, we can determine which option would provide the best results for you.
At first glance, this treatment may look and sound scary because it involves drawing blood, but vampire facials are becoming increasingly popular among celebrities for good reason. Basically, we take your own blood and remove the platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which contains growth factors that boost your skin’s natural healing. Vampire facials can be combined with micro-needling or microdermabrasion for even more penetration and more noticeable results. Please note that this treatment can make your face appear red, as if you have a sunburn, so you’ll likely need a day or two to recover following this procedure.
For more advanced hair and skin rejuvenation, we don’t have to turn to chemicals that are foreign to your body. We can use your body’s natural healing system to help you achieve the results you want. With PRP treatment, we take some of your blood, separate the plasma, and actually inject it in areas that need an extra boost of growth factors. As a result, you can continue to produce collagen and healthy cells for a younger appearance.
Rejuvenating your skin and hair doesn’t mean that you need to undergo an invasive procedure. Micro-needling has been shown to improve the appearance of scars, increase hair growth, and boost collagen, especially after several treatments. The process is simple—using micro-fine, short needles, we prick the surface layer of skin, essentially creating tiny wounds. Minor inflammation and swelling then give the skin a healthy, pink glow for a few weeks and stimulate growth and healing.
When it comes to anti-aging treatments, few are as versatile and useful as peptides, which are chains of amino acids. Impacting the building blocks of proteins in the skin, peptides encourage strong, youthful collagen production. Depending on the type, peptides can have multiple effects on the skin, including relaxation of the facial muscles, reduction of inflammation, stimulation of skin growth and healing, and added protection against UV damage.
