Lack of Sleep Ages Skin
April 27th 2021
If you want to look younger, get enough sleep. In one study, poor sleepers, in comparison to good sleepers, had more sagging skin and more signs of aging. In another, less than one week of sleeping fewer hours increased fine lines, wrinkles, and skin discoloration.
Platelet Rich Plasma - A Game Changer
April 27th 2021
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) also known as the “Vampire Face Lift™” was popularized after celebrity Kim Kardashian posted an Instagram photo of her bloody face. In 2011, I became the first injector of PRFM (Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix) in Washington, D.C. My technique is different. Instead of applying PRP to the surface of the skin, I inject PRFM (Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix) slightly beneath the skin surface which gives better results. After 2 or 3 treatments my patients have a more youthful glow, and it diminishes dark spots as well. It truly is an age reversing technique.
Sculptra Butt Lift
April 27th 2021
For individuals with little or no body fat, the Sculptra Butt Lift is an alternative to the surgical procedure - the Brazilian Butt Lift. The Sculptra Butt Lift also restores volume and rejuvenates aging sagging skin on the Butt. I personally have used the Sculptra Butt lift in individuals undergoing sex reassignment who desire a curvy fuller appearance.
Telehealth: The Advantages of Telemedicine
December 23rd 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered dramatic changes throughout everyday life — and in the medical community as well. Not only are providers across the country postponing elective procedures, but many are also encouraging people to avoid in-office appointments to reduce their risk of exposure to this highly contagious coronavirus.
But what do you do if you still need health care? Fortunately, Telehealth can help.
How Telehealth works
Telehealth — or telemedicine — is a healthcare solution that allows you to meet with your doctor virtually instead of going to the office. Our 100% HIPAA-compliant system uses a two-way, high definition video, so we can talk face-to-face as if we’re in the same room together.
With Telehealth, you can also:
- Submit your medication list, allergies, ID cards, and medical history in advance
- Chat or share photos describing your symptoms Have prescriptions electronically sent to your pharmacy
- Securely pay online for your virtual visit
This streamlined approach originally evolved to help expand medical care to men, women, and children living in remote areas. Today, 76% of hospitals use Telehealth technology, and US employers could save as much as $6 billion a year by making telemedicine technology available to their employees. But the advantages of Telehealth go far beyond financial savings.
The benefits of telemedicine
Whether you live close to your doctor or in a rural area, you probably know firsthand that even a routine visit involves wait times of 18 minutes or longer — and that doesn’t even include the time you spend getting there. Telehealth technology eliminates that.
By connecting to your doctor in a virtual setting, you can expect to:
- Miss less time at work
- Have fewer disruptions with any child or elder care responsibilities
- Eliminate the time or travel expenses associated with your office visit
- Receive quality health care faster
- Reduce subjecting yourself and others to a contagious illness
- At the same time, you also reduce your risk of exposure to contagious illnesses, like the common cold, flu, and COVID-19.
Telemedicine is also available to patients of all ages, including children, older adults, and those in vulnerable health. That makes it an ideal healthcare solution for everyone, especially when someone can no longer leave their home safely but still requires medical attention.
