Hormone Imbalance in Men


Testosterone is very important in the physiology of numerous organ systems of the body. The serum testosterone concentration declines as part of the process of aging and even the slightest change can have a very big impact on a man's overall health and well-being. 

With low testosterone levels (sometimes referred to as Andropause or Low T) you may experien...

You may be a candidate for vaginal rejuvenation!

5 Million women worldwide have improvement in their feminine health with the Juliet™ Intimate Laser.

Childbirth, menopause, certain skin conditions (vulvar dystrophy, lichen sclerosis), cancer treatment, and aging can cause thinning of the vagina (vaginal atrophy).

Vaginal atrophy can lead to vaginal dryness, painful sex (dyspareunia), vaginal irritation, vaginal burning, and skin discoloration of the vulva with age spots or brown spots. Other symptoms such as urinary incontinence have been successfully treated with laser therapy.

If you cannot use traditional hormone therapies, you don’t respond to estrogen treatment, or if a history of breast cancer has made it difficult for you to use other therapy methods, the Juliet™ Laser may be the answer for you.

The laser energy painlessly stimulates collagen production in the vaginal muscles and tissues to tighten and revitalize the area. It is a drug-free, non-hormonal office treatment with no down...

Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment (PRP) for Hair Restoration in Men and Women.

Some of the benefits include: 

  • Affordable and proven effective

  • No surgery required and no downtime

  • No harmful side effects

  • Increase blood supply to the follicle

  • Increase hair shaft thickness

  • Trigger and maintain the growth phase

  • Control hair growth cycle

  • Decreased hair loss 

This non-surgical office treatment procedure begins with a simple blood draw from the patient to collect platelets. This typically takes 10-15 minutes.

First, we separate the platelet-rich plasma from the blood cells in a centrifuge. Then the

PRP is applied to the scalp via injections with a thin needle. This typically takes 5-10 minutes.

Most people require three to four sessions initially, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, with subsequent maintenance treatments 1-3 times per year. There is no downtime or recovery time.

There is no cure for baldness, but regular treatments of PRP can significantly slow down the eff...

An ovarian cyst is a fluid-filled growth on the inside or outer surface of one of a woman’s ovaries. Many women develop ovarian cysts. The majority of these growths are harmless, cause only very minor discomfort or no ovarian cyst symptoms at all, and disappear without treatment in just a few months. However, some cysts can cause severe symptoms and require urgent treatment.

Common Symptoms of Ovarian Cysts

Most ovarian cysts do not cause any symptoms, and often these cysts disappear without treatment. However, larger ovarian cysts can cause symptoms including:

Pelvic Pain: Sharp or dull ache in the lower abdominal area on the side of the body where the cyst is located.

Abdominal Discomfort: Sensation of heaviness or fullness in the abdomen.

Bloating:  A bloated sensation.

Severe Symptoms Need Urgent Medical Attention

  • Sudden severe pelvic or abdominal pain.

  • Pain and vomiting or fever.

  • Signs of shock, such as cold, damp skin, rapid breathing, weakness, light-headedness.
