The aging process is one of those things in life that is truly inevitable. Although nothing can stop you from getting older, you can take certain steps to age gracefully and age well. Taking good care of your body is a great way to encourage youthful vitality from the inside, out. While treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic effectively soften the signs of aging at a skin-deep level, a healthy lifestyle combined with regenerative therapy address aging at a cellular level.
Assessing Your Goals and Treatment Options
Arrange a consultation if you are ready to learn more about anti-aging treatments using regenerative medicine techniques. PRP, Exosomes, laser skin rejuvenation, hormonal therapy and other methods may be the right way to restore youthfulness from the inside out!
The Best Anti-Aging: Eating Well and Exercise!
Sometimes the most basic measures are the ones we don’t want to take. Eating well, staying active, limiting the unhealthy habits in your life – all of these basics are a good way to age well. In advanced age, it’s also important to stay socially connected. All too often our senior citizens become isolated. Stay in touch with old friends and seek out new friendships. It’s an important part of overall wellness.
Ozempic® (semaglutide) injection 0.5 mg, 1 mg, or 2 mg is an injectable prescription medicine that we use:
- along with diet and exercise to improve blood sugar (glucose) in adults with type 2 diabetes.
- to reduce the risk of major cardiovascular events such as heart attack, stroke, or death in adults with type 2 diabetes with known heart disease.
Micro-Needling Facial with PRP
Platelet-rich plasma injections are used to stimulate healing in deteriorating or injured joints, tendons and ligaments. And PRP can also be used for facial rejuvenation!
Your blood is made up of red and white blood cells, and platelets and plasma. By isolating the platelets, we can introduce concentrated growth factors directly to tissue. When applied to the skin, these platelets work to refresh, revive and stimulate firm, youthful skin.
First, micro-needling is performed to open up the skin. A handheld device containing tiny needles gently creates micro-punctures in the surface of the skin. In so doing, micro-needling makes the skin more receptive to the topical application of PRP.
Hormones – particularly estrogen, progesterone and testosterone – naturally decline as we age. These hormonal imbalances are in part responsible for some of the less desirable effects of aging: weight gain, sleeplessness, loss of lean muscle, fatigue, impaired concentration. By introducing specific hormones into the body, we can level out some of these imbalances. First, blood work must be completed to get accurate levels and to see which hormones could use a boost. Hormones may be administered via implantable pellet, a pill or a topical cream. Over time, you should start feeling a reduction in the undesirable symptoms listed above as your hormones are replenished.
Dr. Zufelt is including bio-identical hormone therapy as part of our services. After realizing the great boost and enhancing effects the correct hormonal balance can provide as we age Dr. Zufelt is now offering these benefits to his patients of all ages and gender. http://www.sottopelletherapy.
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is a method of replacing missing or deficient hormones with biologically identical hormones (i.e. plant-based substances that are created to precisely match hormones produced naturally in the body.
Bio-identical hormones are exactly the same as those produced by the human body. They are not synthetic, simulations or replicas. They possess the exact hormonal structure of human hormones estradiol and testosterone, Pellets once implanted work automatically. They are secreted in tiny amounts into the blood stream daily. When more hormone is needed from daily stress or exercise the body will respond and deliver more. no other form whether capsule, pill, cream or patches can produce the consistent blood levels that pellets can without any roller coaster effect.
Bio identical hormone replacement therapy is not new to the field of medicine. Before hormone replacement therapy was thrust in the media spotlight, the therapy has been used throughout Europe, Japan and the United States since the 1930s. Numerous studies have proven that when administered by medical experts, patients of bio identical therapy exhibit positive results, including:
- Better moods
- Stronger bones
- Increased libido
- Healthy weight
- Mental clarity and focus
- Lasts longer than alternative therapies
Estradiol and testosterone implants are formed by compressing bio-identical hormone ingredients into very small cylinders a little larger than a grain of rice, approximately 3 millimeters in diameter. Doing this process correctly is critical since it ensures that each patient receive the benefit of a steady accurate hormone dose for 3 months or longer.
