ThriveMD provides the most advanced anti-aging treatment programs available anywhere. In addition, the doctors and staff at ThriveMD are committed to treating the “whole patient” to elevate your health, happiness, confidence, self-esteem, and productivity. Aging is natural and inevitable, but there are both medical and behavioral/lifestyle ways we can slow the process. ThriveMD invites you to schedule a consultation to find out how anti-aging therapy in Dallas can help you take back control of your quality of life. We have a comprehensive, multimodal approach including:
Botox injections can be a safe, quick, and effective solution for patients who want to look younger by tightening their facial skin.
Botox is derived from the bacteria that causes food poisoning known as botulism. Despite its “creepy” origins, Botox is used to address various cosmetic and medical issues safely. It works by blocking nerve impulses from reaching targeted muscles. By keeping these muscles from contracting, wrinkles and lines appear much softer and less prominent. Injections are typically performed in your doctor’s office using tiny, sterile needles. Patients experience little or no discomfort. A treatment session takes just minutes. It is possible to treat more than one facial area in a single session. You’ll notice the difference in your facial appearance within a few days, but it may take a month to see the full benefits of Botox injections. To maintain your results, you’ll need regular follow-up injections, separated by at least three months.
Botox injections should only be administered by highly trained medical professionals, such as the physicians and staff at ThriveMD. In addition, your injections must be precisely dosed and located. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. It may not be safe to use this medicine while breastfeeding. You may not be a good candidate for Botox injections if you have myasthenia gravis, any breathing disorder, problems swallowing, or a history of excessive bleeding.
Patients approved for Botox injections in Dallas may be directed to stop taking any blood-thinning medications or supplements several days before treatment. You may experience some mild bruising, redness, swelling, and tenderness following injections, but these side effects typically resolve in a few days. Botox has proved to be an effective treatment to reduce the prominence of facial wrinkles.
Injectable dermal fillers can create a smoother and fuller facial appearance by diminishing facial lines and wrinkles and “plumping” the contours of your face.
Dermal filler procedures can also often improve the appearance of acne scars and restore age-related loss of facial fat. Many injectable fillers also stimulate your body’s natural collagen production, which naturally declines as we age. Healthy collagen provides the “foundation” for smooth, vibrant, and youthful facial skin. FDA-approved filler implants administered by medical professionals are regarded as safe and effective. But there is a large and growing black market of unapproved and potentially dangerous injectable products.
Never inject yourself or let an acquaintance inject you. There is a severe consequence if you unintentionally inject yourself into a blood vessel. Most injectable dermal fillers are temporary procedures that will require ongoing treatment to maintain results. Injectable fillers may be for you if you want to achieve smoother, fuller, and firmer facial skin but don’t want to undergo extensive surgery.
Laser skin resurfacing can remove or repair blemishes, warts, enlarged pores, sun damage, deep wrinkles, and acne scars. The treatment uses an ablative surface laser to address these unwanted facial features. The procedure directs concentrated beams of light at irregular skin. The laser removes the thin outer layer of skin while heating deeper layers, which stimulates the production of new facial collagen. As the outer layer of your facial skin heals, the treated skin appears clearer, tighter, and smoother.
Our Dallas Laser resurfacing is an outpatient procedure typically performed using a topical anesthetic, and patients report minimal discomfort. You can go home following your resurfacing, but make sure you have arranged for a driver. Expect some swelling and redness immediately following your procedure. Some patients report itching and a temporary acne flare-up. Once your face has healed, daily use of a high SPF sunscreen is vital to achieving and maintaining your desired results. Patients who have active infections of any kind should not undergo laser resurfacing. Nor should people with vascular disease or an immune system disorder. Surveys reflect a very high rate of patient satisfaction with laser resurfacing, while the incidence of complications is low. In addition, many patients see a reduction of as much as 80 percent in facial wrinkles following laser resurfacing.
Hormone replacement therapy can restore and balance healthy hormone levels in both women and men. For women, hormone replacement therapy generally addresses levels of progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone. So yes, women produce testosterone, too, although at much lower levels than men do. Male hormone replacement therapy adjusts testosterone levels, and in some cases, human growth hormone (HGH).
Hormone levels naturally fall as we age, lowering our bodies’ efficiency. But, beyond that, other physiological and lifestyle factors may accelerate that decline. For many women, hormone replacement therapy can increase sex drive, slow the thinning of bones known as osteoporosis, reduce moodiness and irritability, tamp down post-menopausal hot flashes and improve sleep quality. Male hormone replacement may sharpen concentration and boost energy. Restoring optimal hormone levels can, in many cases, also reduce fat, slow loss of muscle mass, lower high blood pressure and cholesterol, improve metabolism, reduce anxiety and increase sex drive. ThriveMD has earned a reputation as the premier hormone replacement center in the United States.
Topical creams and gels called retinoids have been shown to stimulate the production of collagen proteins, making the skin look fuller and firmer. Retinoids are available in both over-the-counter and prescription forms. The doctors and staff at ThriveMD will include topical therapies as part of their overall anti-aging regimen designed for you.
Aging is part of the arc of life. But it need not be a runaway freight train. Instead, pump the brakes on aging with a personalized Dallas anti-aging regimen designed just for you by the experts at ThriveMD.
