What is Anti Aging

anti-aging11 Anti-Aging / Weight-Loss

     Anti-Aging refers to the attempt of slowing down, or reversing the aging process. According to Ronald Klatz, M.D., D.O. President of American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, current theories of aging at the cellular and molecular level generally revolve around two main themes: aging is programmed and aging is accidental. Programmed aging theories are based on the idea that from conception to death, human development is governed by a biological “clock”. This clock sets the appropriate times for various changes to take pace. The changes in vision, loss of calcium in the bones, decreasing hearing acuity, and lowered vital capacity of the lungs are all examples of programmed aging. Accidental theories of aging rely on chance; the notion that organisms get older by a series of random events. An example is DNA damage from free radicals or just the wear and tear of daily life.

     When understanding medical treatments for anti- aging the American Board of Anti-Aging Regenerative Medicine states that anti-aging medicine is a clinical specialty founded on the application of advanced scientific and medical technologies for the early detection, prevention, treatment, and reversal of age-related dysfunctions, disorders, and diseases. It is a healthcare model promoting innovative science and research to prolong the healthy lifespan of humans. Anti-aging medicine is based on principles of sound and responsible medical care that are consistent with those applied in other preventive health specialties.

     At Revive Medical, our expert doctors and aestheticians will work closely with you to analyze and understand your signs of aging, and then determine what methods of anti-aging would be best suited for you.

Anti-aging medicine is:

  • SCIENTIFIC: Anti-aging diagnostic and treatment practices are supported by scientific evidence, and therefore cannot be branded as anecdotal.
  • EVIDENCE-BASED: Anti-aging medicine is based on an orderly process for acquiring data in order to formulate a scientific and objective assessment upon which effective treatment is assigned.
  • WELL-DOCUMENTED BY PEER-REVIEWED JOURNALS: As of this writing, the National Library of Medicine hosts more than 3,000 peer-reviewed articles on the subject of anti-aging medicine.

About Weight Loss

weight-loss-picture Anti-Aging / Weight-Loss

     Whether you have a lot of weight to lose, or just a few pounds, weight loss can be achieved. Achieving a healthy weight is a crucial part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Upon consultation, we will help you with a customized plan.

     Most weight loss drugs are for short-term use, meaning a few weeks or months. One type of weight loss medication is “appetite suppressants”. Appetite suppressants promote weight loss by tricking the body into believing that it is not hungry or that it is full. They decrease appetite by increasing serotonin or catecholamine levels, which are two brain chemicals that affect mood and appetite.

How We Can Help

  • Proper diet plans
  • Surgery
  • Prescription Medication
