Integrative Medicine– We are trained in different modalities of both Western and Eastern medicine and understand the importance of blending both. We stay up-to-date regarding the most effective evidence-based practices in healthcare. We use a holistic approach to treating our patients. This is a very patient-centered model of medicine, where patients are educated about all options to treat disease and promote wellness. They are then given the freedom to choose which options for health and wellness work best for them. Healthcare providers spend lots of time prescribing treatments for things which are wrong with the body but give little to no education about the good that the body can naturally do. Each initial patient visit is one hour long. At our facility, patients are encouraged to write their own “prescriptions”. We firmly believe that most patients innately know what they need in order to be healthy. We are here to coach you through it!
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy– Bioidentical hormones are molecularly identical to the naturally-occurring hormones in your body. They differ from conventional prescription hormones in that their structure and function are exactly the same as naturally-occurring estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. They are used in both men and women and combat hot flashes, night sweats, irritability weakness, fatigue, depression, and decreased libido. They have also been shown to slow the aging process and decrease the incidence of cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and certain cancers. These hormones can be administered topically in a cream which is specially made by a compounding pharmacy in specific concentrations based on the patient’s blood or saliva hormone levels. Bioidentical hormones can also be administered in the form of a small pellet, about the size of a grain of rice. Administration requires a painless procedure in which the pellet is placed just under the patient’s skin. The pellet slowly releases the hormone over a period of months.
Medical Weight Loss– We offer several modalities of individualized medical weight loss and diet plans. We know that obesity leads to other health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, and cardiovascular disease. We tailor these plans to each individual patient’s needs and expectations. We understand the importance of our patients maintaining a positive self-image as well as optimal health.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatments – PRP is considered the latest and greatest discovery in the field of medicine. It involves collecting the patient’s own blood to obtain a sample which contains 5-10 times the amount of platelets than a normal blood sample. These platelets contain proteins, growth factors, and stem cells that have shown to aid remarkably in skin and hair rejuvenation. It is used commonly in the treatment of acne, scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, crepey skin, and hair loss. It has also been used to heal orthopedic injuries and to increase libido. PRP is usually administered by making tiny injections at the problem site. It can also be administered topically in conjunction with microneedling.
Botox– We offer Xeomin™and Botox™injections which can be strategically placed to relax muscles, therefore decreasing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. These medications are most commonly used on the face but can also be administered in the neck. They can also be injected to fix a gummy smile and bunny lines or as a treatment for migraine headaches, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), and teeth grinding (bruxism).
Dermal Fillers– As we age, we lose a percentage of the subcutaneous tissue in our faces. We use several different injectable dermal filler products to reverse these signs of aging. They are commonly used to achieve fuller lips and cheeks, fill the nasolabial folds (which extend from the nose to the top of the outer lips), marionette lines (which extend from the outer lower lip to the chin), and tear troughs (under eyes). There are several other uses for dermal fillers as well.
Microneedling– This procedure is used to make tiny punctures in the surface of the skin to facilitate new skin cell growth. We use a medical-grade skin pen which contains 12-36 oscillating microneedles to aid in the treatment of acne, scarring, lines, wrinkles, and crepey skin. This treatment can be used in conjunction with Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy for exceptional results.
Mesotherapy– This procedure involves the use of vitamins, enzymes, hormones, and plant extracts to rejuvenate and tighten skin and emulsify fat. It is used very effectively for spot fat reduction in places such as the chin, arms, back bulge while wearing a bra, inner thighs, flanks ("love handles"), lateral thighs ("saddle bags"), and abdomen. The procedure can be administered anywhere the patient may notice an unfavorable buildup of excess fat.
Spider Vein/Varicose Vein Removal (Sclerotherapy)– This safe and effective procedure involves the use of a medication which is injected directly into the problem vein. The solution irritates the lining of the vein and causes it to permanently collapse.
Medical-Grade Skincare– We carry Jan Marini Skin Research products on site. Jan Marini Skincare products are professional, medical-grade products which are backed by many scientific studies. We have personally used many other lines including Murad, SkinCeuticals, and Obagi, and nothing compares to the exceptional results produced by Jan Marini products.
