The body breaks down as time passes. Patients seeking to restore and stimulate cell growth are suitable candidates for our regenerative services. Mostly, our regenerative services use a process in which we draw blood from our own patients and re-inject it in problem areas, such as the joints, hair, face, and sex organs.
After many years of medical research, it has been proven that platelets naturally move towards an injured area and release growth factors that speed up the healing process. These growth factors can stimulate cellular growth and accelerate healing. Studies show that blood-derived growth factor injections release as many as three to five times the growth factors compared to normal human blood.
Our regeneration treatments include:
1. The Vampire Facelift®
Also known as the Vampire Facelift®, it is perfect for those wanting to treat dynamic wrinkles and improve lost volume in the face caused by aging. This anti-aging treatment in West Bloomfield is simple. One of our medical professionals injects a small amount of noninvasive, hyaluronic acid (HA) into the pockets surrounding the cheek and eyes. The HA creates a natural filler that adds volume to the face. After the HA has settled, the injection follows. The blood-derived growth factor injection stimulates cellular regrowth wherever the HA is. This means that unlike other facials, the Vampire Facelift treats the root of the problem by encouraging the body’s own natural cellular restoration process.
Joint pain is a common problem we see at the office, especially in aging adults. For many people, joint pain hurts most in the knees and shoulders. Using blood-derived growth factor injections for joint pain is an effective medical treatment. This is because blood-derived growth factors boost the body’s natural healing properties by targeting the cells at specific pain points. Anyone suffering from chronic pain should consider a blood-derived growth factor injection to fix the problem at its source.
3. Hair Rejuvenation
Hair loss is also a common side effect of hormonal issues. We also use blood-derived growth factor therapy as an anti-aging treatment in West Bloomfield to rejuvenate hair follicles to increase hair thickness and overall hair appearance. A fresh boost of blood-derived growth factors to the patient’s scalp nourishes each hair follicle on a cellular level, which encourages the hair to heal and rebuild itself from within.
4. Facial (Vampire Facial)
The blood-derived growth factors facial is ideal for patients looking for the fountain of youth. By injecting small amounts of blood-derived growth factors into the face, our team can stimulate collagen production in the skin. This allows old skin to be replaced by newer, fresher skin to create a luminous effect. The Vampire Facial is a great way to revive, hydrate, tighten, and restore dead skin for beautiful results.
Sexual Dysfunction Treatments
Along with our regeneration treatments, we also have the O-Shot and P-Shot, which refines the vaginal and penile areas, respectively. We also offer additional regenerative medicine treatments, such as exosome and stem cell treatments, which are also great anti-aging treatments in West Bloomfield in addition to blood-derived growth factor procedures.
You achieve hormone wellness when hormones work in sync and are in balance. Yet, like a grand clock, hormones lose their synergy over time. This is where hormonal therapy comes in. We test and look at each of your hormones up close to get a better understanding of each of your hormones’ behavior. This high level bird’s eye view gives us a general gist of which hormones need treatment and which treatments to administer.
DHEA Hormonal Treatment
For example, DHEA is a hormone secreted by the adrenal glands. This hormone is a precursor to other sex hormones. Recent studies also point to DHEA as an anti-stress hormone, reversing the effects of stress on the immune system. Our team considers DHEA to be the starting point for understanding your sexual health.
When DHEA is affected by aging and becomes too low, the adrenal gland does not produce enough DHEA. The results of low DHEA are low energy, lack of sex drive, weight loss, infertility, and more. On the other hand, high DHEA might lead to adrenal tumors, facial hair in women, and more. Both conditions can be treated by our team of certified medical professionals.
Estrogen Hormonal Treatment
Estrogen is another key hormone. Secreted by the ovaries, estrogen protects against heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, and memory disorders. Estrogen also protects against vaginal atrophy, urinary incontinence, and prevents symptoms of menopause, including hot flashes.
However, when estrogen production ceases at menopause, this leads to an estrogen deficiency that results in urogenital atrophy, incontinence, sagging skin in the breasts, increased skin wrinkles of the face, increased fatigue, depression, mood swings, and decreased libido. Our team treats estrogen deficiency with bio-identical estrogen replacement therapy. We find that many patients improve symptoms quickly.
DHEA and estrogen are just examples of common hormonal imbalances we see almost every day. We also treat patients dealing with insomnia caused by melatonin imbalances, men suffering from low testosterone, and more. Whichever hormone is causing you problems, we replace it with a medical grade supplement that works, giving you back your vitality and peace of mind.
Patients looking for faster delivery of crucial nutrients can do so more than ever with IV therapy. While taking supplements is great and can be beneficial, getting vitamins and minerals directly through an IV is much more efficient. Absorption of vitamins taken orally can be as low as 10%, whereas you get 100% absorption when taken with an IV. We offer a multitude of IV options and can also tailor them to your specific needs or deficiencies. One of our highly trained medical professionals performs our IV therapy treatment, ensuring both convenience and safety.
We have an entire menu of IVs that we offer. If there is something that you are interested in that you do not see, let us know and we can likely make it available to you. It’s important to note that we base our prices on the quality and the quantity of ingredients in each IV. For instance, some places may tell you you are getting a “high dose of vitamin C,” but that could actually be a range from 1 to 100 grams–that’s a hundred-fold difference. We will tell you the exact quantities upon request so that you can compare apples to apples.
IV NAD Therapy for Addiction
While most of our IV therapy sessions take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes, IV NAD can take from 3 to 6 hours depending on the dose and the patient.
Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) is perhaps the most important molecule related to aging and age-related disease. Our NAD therapy fuels metabolic reactions and is necessary to metabolize fats, carbohydrates, and amino acids. Patients have found the NAD IV to help boost metabolism, reduce pain, help with addiction, reduce cravings, increase concentration, increase mental clarity, improve overall mood, and much more.
IV NAD can be offered via IV administration, SubQ injections, or even by transdermal patches. While many patients see benefits with just one treatment, we recommend a series of three to six for best results. There are many treatment options for addiction; however, NAD therapy near you has been proven as a natural, holistic solution. NAD therapy is also beneficial because it does not cause unwanted side effects like other addiction treatment medications.
