Anti - Aging

What is anti-aging medicine?

Antiaging medicine is a medical approach that focuses on slowing the effects of time on your body. Your Holistique Med Spa & Wellness Center provider starts your treatment by performing comprehensive wellness testing using ZRT Laboratory, a leader in this field. With this lab work — which can include testing for allergies or heavy metals — they can identify where aging is presenting challenges for your body. 

Then, they tailor a treatment program designed to address your body’s specific needs. That might include:

Hormone therapy

The way your hormone levels change with age can affect your mood, energy levels, weight, sexual health, and more. With hormone replacement therapy, Holistique Med Spa & Wellness Center can keep your hormone levels consistent, minimizing these side effects.

Peptide therapy


 

Peptides are the newly emerging science of cell signaling amino acid sequences, with far-reaching regulatory and rejuvenation actions on neuro-endocrine-immune functionality. The specifically targeted use of peptides in the environment has the potential to rewrite bodily chemistry relationships, and ultimately generate a restorative trend towards anabolism and homeostasis. Peptides can also be utilized and applied in the treatment of injuries, with capabilities that help prevent chronic disease, and enhance peak performance. (a4m.com) Some of our most common peptides: - Sermorelin: a growth hormone releasing peptide (GHRP) that stimulates the pituitary gland to naturally produce increased amounts of growth hormone; Can assist in building lean muscle, reducing fat, increasing energy and overall vitality, improving cardiovascular and immune function. - Ipamorelin/CJC 1295: Ipamorelin/CJC 1295 is a combination of 2 peptides that stimulate one side of the pituitary gland in order to produce growth hormone. Ipamorelin mimics the ghrelin and binds to the ghrelin receptor in the pituitary gland in the brain. These two peptides combine to act together to increase HGH (human growth hormone) produced in the body. The CJC 1295 / Ipamorelin combo achieves this by acting in two different families of receptors; Can help increase bone density, ability to burn fat, sex drive, strengthens the immune system, and more! - Bremelanotide PT-141: originally developed to darken skin pigmentation and increase tanning, PT-141 has been developed into an entirely different treatment. Working with the nervous system, PT-141 activates the dopamine hormones that happen to play a major role in sexual motivation. Therapy with PT-141 works for both men and women and the effects can last up to 72 hours!

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy

This injection-based treatment uses your blood’s own platelets — powerful healing and regeneration agents — to address a wide range of age-related woes, including joint pain, loss of sexual wellness, and skin wrinkling. 

Nutraceuticals

Is your body getting everything it needs to function its best and fend off aging? With nutraceuticals — fortified foods and supplements — your Holistique Med Spa & Wellness Center provider ensures you’re getting the right amounts of the right nutrients. 

How does antiaging medicine work?

As you age, your body creates less of several substances that help you maintain your youthfulness. For example, it drops production of key hormones, leaving you feeling sluggish or dealing with sexual wellness challenges. At the same time, it slows its production of collagen, the protein that keeps your skin smooth and supple. Together, these changes in your body produce the signs of aging.

Antiaging medicine works by addressing your body’s diminishing production, supplementing it as needed — like with hormone therapy, collagen-stimulating treatments, or peptide therapy  — while also ensuring your body is getting everything it needs to work its best.
