Bioidentical Hormone Replacement (BHRT): Using bioidentical hormones allows us to replace what nature has lost without the risks of synthetic hormones. The most common bioidentical hormones to replace in women are progesterone, estrogen and testosterone. These are usually given in creams, injections or pellets.
Bioidentical testosterone replacement in men includes daily creams or weekly injection or quarterly pellet. A personalized treatment plan is customized for each patient with evaluation of lab tests to make sure the proper amount of hormone is used.
Botox: Dr. Silva uses botox to minimize the lines and wrinkles that ages your face and her goal is to give you a natural, refreshed look. Many people use Botox to maintain a youthful appearance with effects lasting 3 – 5 months.
Fillers: When the face matures, volume loss can occur especially around the mouth. When these areas are filled then the face looks softer and more youthful. Also with consistent frowning and squinting deep lines can form (especially on forehead and between the eyes) where fillers can be strategically placed to minimize deep lines. Dr. Silva specializes in filling the lip areas. Fillers can last up to a year.
Body Sculpturing: Exilis is a FDA approved device that offers a non-surgical solution using radio frequency (RF) energy for fat reduction and tissue tightening all over the body. No anesthesia is required and side effects are rare to nonexistent. By combining RF energy with cooling, we can treat areas of the body like the abdomen and thighs where stubborn fatty deposits persist. We also treat areas like the neck, face and arms where tighter, firmer skin is desired. Cellulite and stretch marks can improve in some individuals.
Trained medical aestheticians are available for customized facials and prescription strength chemical peels. Also ask about laser treatments for spider veins and photofacials for red and brown spots. Prescription depigmented creams and masks also available to treat melasma (dark spots on face from hormonal changes).
Weight Loss Diet: Hormonal changes and fluctuations can make obesity worse. Hormone related weight gain is concentrated around the waist which is the unhealthiest weight gain leading to increased risk of heart disease and diabetes.
Our weight loss program is a very practical and affordable diet program which should only be used under the guidance of a highly trained doctor. Most women will lose 20 -25 lbs. in 6 weeks and men typically lose 30 – 40 lbs. in 6 weeks.
