How does the aging process affect my body?

Your body carries you through life, and each stage of life leaves its mark. With age comes facial lines and wrinkles, increasing aches and pains, and other changes that are difficult to ignore.

Skin changes and hair loss are two of the most obvious signs of aging. Older skin doesn’t produce as much collagen or elastin as young skin, making it saggy and crepey. Age-related hair loss (particularly hereditary balding) makes hair thinner and more brittle.

Your hormone levels fluctuate with age, too. Testosterone declines in men, and both estrogen and progesterone decline in women. Low sex hormone levels can cause symptoms ranging from low libido and fatigue to headaches and weight gain.

How can anti-aging help?

Aging changes how you look and feel, but those changes shouldn’t be dreaded. Anti-aging therapies at Connect Integrative Medicine exist to help you embrace change and feel your best.

Dr. Shegeft and Dr. Cruz provide comprehensive care aimed at helping you age well. Routine health care, like hormone replacement therapy, nutritional IV therapy, dietary counseling, and weight loss management, can help you optimize wellness.

Aesthetic therapies, like platelet-rich plasma (PRP), can address changes like lines, wrinkles, and hair loss. Bioidentical hormone replacement can help manage unpleasant hormonal symptoms to help you feel like yourself again.

What anti-aging therapies are available?

The Connect Integrative Medicine team takes a personal approach to wellness. Dr. Shegeft and Dr. Cruz partner with you to understand your needs, then recommend a combination of anti-aging therapies to help you celebrate the change instead of dreading it.

PRP therapy taps into your body’s natural healing ability to restore a more youthful appearance. The team recommends PRP for anti-aging treatments like:

Facial rejuvenation

Facial rejuvenation combines microneedling with PRP therapy. Microneedling pierces your skin, and PRP stimulates collagen and elastin production. The combination smooths wrinkles, tightens skin, and repairs damage.

Hair restoration

PRP hair restoration tackles age-related hair loss. Hair loss occurs when hair follicles go dormant, and injecting PRP into balding or thinning areas on your scalp can stimulate new hair growth.

Your health needs change over time, and your health care should evolve too. Find the anti-aging therapies that are right for you with a personalized consultation at Connect Integrative Medicine. Call or book online now.
