What’s the secret to optimal aging? Why do some people seem to age well, while others struggle with poor health, medical conditions, weight gain, hormonal imbalance, aging skin and hair loss? Taking care of the way we look is a key component, but more importantly, taking care of our body inside and out is the secret to looking and feeling amazing.
Sagewood Institute brings together expert physicians and practitioners from a variety of disciplines to help clients look and feel better, and to achieve optimal health as they age using cutting-edge research and techniques. The Institute also educates professionals and the public on effective and proven peer-reviewed research on healthy aging.
Do you know that preventing or controlling the age-related chronic diseases is crucial in preserving quality of life? Part of prevention includes control of medical conditions like heart disease, anxiety, hypertension, and diabetes. Prevention also includes lifestyle modifications such as diet, exercise, proper sleep patterns, management of stress and hormonal balance.
There is not a scientific method to stop the aging process, but you can age WELL. Anti-aging is more than using expensive products on your skin. It is also about eating a high-quality nutrient-rich diet. The most straightforward secret is to fill your daily diet with fresh, healthy and whole foods. Not everyone is the same! What works for your spouse may not work for you. Sagewood offers a comprehensive health assessment for their patients in order to develop a personalized approach and treatment plan that fits them specifically.
Esthetically, Sagewood Institute also offers PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) procedures for optimal skin anti-aging and hair loss treatment.
Naturally found in your blood, platelets are a rich source of proteins called growth factors, which promote healing and regeneration. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains a higher concentration of platelets than the amount normally found in your
blood. To create PRP a sample of your blood is drawn and placed it in a centrifuge, which separates the platelets. These concentrated platelets are recombined with your blood plasma to make PRP. Platelet Rich Plasma is then reinjected into the problem areas.
Platelet Rich Plasma for Hair Loss
Hair loss can be caused by several different factors, age, alopecia, cancer treatments, family history, and various disorders. No matter what the cause, for many individuals dealing with the loss of hair can be traumatic and devastating.
PRP has seven growth factors in it, and that helps to restore hair loss in three ways. First by stimulating new hair to grow, then by keeping current hair growing and last, PRP stimulates the stem cells that are around the hair follicles to thicken the shaft of the hair. The typical hair restoration therapy consist of 3 to 4 treatments over a 4 to 6 week period and then every 3 months thereafter until the hair is fully restored.
Platelet Rich Plasma for the Face
PRP injections are an alternative to Botox and fillers, or an add on to those services if you currently receive them. As mentioned above, platelet Rich Plasma is taken from the patient’s own blood, spun down and reintroduced into the face just like a filler to create and stimulate your body’s own growth factors. PRP produces collagen, hyaluronic acid, elastin, and plumps the skin. Most patients love this as an alternative to chemicals and toxins because the results are remarkable.
