Therapies › Anti-aging

Other therapies  

Dr. Santos offers several Anti-aging programs to suit the patient's needs. We have a skin rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction therapy utilizing mesotherapy to introduce anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals and medications 2mm under the skin to stimulate collagen formation and skin turnover. We also offer bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. We typically use progesterone, estrogen, and growth hormone.

Detoxification is an intricate part of anti-aging. Toxins create free radicals and as we all know free radicals stimulate the aging process by inducing inflammation. Detoxification heals the person from the inside out. Detoxification must focus on reducing the body's burden of heavy metals, pesticides, organosolvents, etc. Heavy metals are removed by chelation therapy. Typically we perform a chelation challenge to identify the amounts of heavy metals in a person's body. Mercury, arsenic, cadmium and lead are some of those that are readily identified. The test will determine the number of chelation treatments a patient must require to reduce the amounts of heavy metals.

Stop Hair Loss...Grow new hair!

Dr Santos has discovered new techniques to not only stop hair loss, but grow new hair!! How many times have you heard this? None of the miracle hair growth tonics and creams work because they don't address the underlying cause of hair loss.  Recent discoveries in new areas are showing that HAIR GROWTH IS POSSIBLE.

What are these new discoveries?

1. Growth facotors: Growth factors are the most advanced anti-aging technology to date! Certain growth factors stimulate the stem cells in the hari follicle to migrate into the hair. He have several products, from shampoo and hair solution to injections.

2. Mesotherapy: A recent development of scalp mesotherapy for hair growth via the injections of vitamins and minerals into the scalp along with growth factors show the best outcome.

3. Thyroid:  Too much or too little can stunt hair growth. 

4. DHT: The deadly form of testosterone, produced in men and women. We treat this systemically and topically with great success. 

5. Hormones: Proper levels of estrogen and progesterone are key

6. Diet: High-carb diets can actually cause hair to fall out. High carbs lead to increased production of insulin, which decreases the sex hormone binding globulin, which increases free testosterone, which increases DHT, which kills the hair shaft.

Proper treatment in all of the above areas can stop hair loss and even cause hair growth. No other protocol can claim this.
