Signs of low testosterone in men may include decreased sex drive, erectile dysfunction (ED), lowered sperm count, or increased breast size. Men also may have symptoms similar to those seen during menopause in women – hot flashes, increased irritability, inability to concentrate, and depression.
Some men may have a prolonged and severe decrease in testosterone production. As a result, they may experience loss of body hair and reduced muscle mass, their bones may be more brittle and prone to fracture, and their testes may become smaller and softer. In younger men, low testosterone production may reduce the development of body and facial hair, muscle mass, and genitals. In addition, their voices may also fail to deepen.
As men age, their ability to produce testosterone declines. Some men’s production of LH decreases with aging, which lowers testosterone production. Moreover, a protein called sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) increases in older men, which reduces the amount of free (unbound) testosterone in the blood that is available to tissues, such as muscles.
Aging also causes changes in the daily cycle of testosterone production. For example, younger men show a peak of testosterone in the morning, but this finding is blunted in older men. The decrease in testosterone production as men age is sometimes referred to as andropause.
The overwhelming reason you feel awful when you overindulged the night before is dehydration. Your aches, pains, nausea and general malaise can be drawn directly to a lack of fluids and certain vitamin deficiencies. High-sugar sports drinks, coffee, and “hair-of-the-dog” may provide some relief, but do almost nothing to treat what is truly causing these symptoms. Our combination of IV hydration, medications for pain, heartburn and nausea, and vitamin additives will virtually cure any alcohol overindulgence and let you enjoy the rest of your day to the fullest.
BioMetrix uses proven medical treatments to provide wellness, energy boost, relief and comfort for our clients. Each client case is analyzed individually. Every treatment is safe, time-tested, FDA approved and targeted to the goals, needs or symptoms of each patient. Our Medical staff is all certified and accredited medical professionals with vast experience in the procedures.
At BioMetrix, your body is rehydrated utilizing “Lactated Ringers“ base saline which is 0.9% sodium chloride. This replaces vital salt that is lost during exercise, after illness, or experienced with alcohol overindulgence. It also contains: ~60mg of potassium (about 4 meq) and Lactate. Potassium is another crucial electrolyte that is lost and is hard for the body to absorb. Lactate is a compound that is used during metabolism in muscles and also reduces acidity, which is important as most people become more acidic as they become dehydrated. Depending upon your specific illness, alcohol overindulgence or athletic needs, BioMetrix will use Vitamin B Complex, Multi Vitamins, MIC, Vitamin C (folic acid), Glutathione, Antioxidants, and Amino Acid compounds which will help with energy level, headache, and overall well-being.
What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma, referred to as PRP, is concentrated blood plasma that contains about five times more platelets found in normal concentrated blood. Blood is comprised of approximately 93% red blood cells (RBC), 1% white blood cells (WBC), 6% platelets, and plasma. Platelets promote healing and aid in the clotting of blood at the site of a wound. Within platelets are growth factors, healing proteins that promote regeneration of the cells in the body. The benefits of PRP come from reducing the RBC count to about 5% and increasing the platelet count to 94%.
PRP for hair loss maintains significant potential to change how hair loss is treated around the world. Dr. Alan Feller, member of the Coalition of Independent Hair Restoration Physicians, claims that PRP may indeed be the “best medical treatment for hair loss since Propecia” while still admitting that the original research in the application of PRP to hair loss fails to clearly outline the short comings of the new treatment.
How does PRP for hair loss work?
Platelets aid in clotting of blood allowing the body to heal wounds. PRP therapy’s main purpose is to increase the platelet count in a wounded area resulting in the body’s accelerated healing capacity. Injecting PRP is a technique that uses the body’s own blood to heal itself. This new technique is being applied by Doctors for the growth of thinning hair, transplanted hair, and wound healing.
If the hair follicle or hair roots are healthy, the growth of the hair is healthy. Hair follicles survive on the nutrition they receive from blood supply. By introducing PRP in the areas of damaged hair follicles, PRP therapy amplifies the body’s naturally occurring wound healing mechanism therefore stimulating the growth of hair follicles preventing hair loss.
An Ozone Sauna Therapy Treatment, sometimes referred to as an “Activated Oxygen” treatment, is one of the most effective methods of detoxifying and oxygenating the body. Ozone has been in use in medical applications since the early 1900s. It is used around the world in countries like Russia, Italy, Germany, Cuba, Mexico and more. Some states in the US also approve it for therapy. An Activated Oxygen session is one of the most powerful methods of detoxifying and oxygenating the body in existence. Because of the moist heat in the steam sauna, the pores are open and the capillaries are dilated and Activated Oxygen can penetrate fully into all tissue. The Activated Oxygen enters the body and oxidizes toxins in the fat, lymph system, and the blood. Since the majority of toxins are held in the lymph systems and fat, this is the most effective way to eliminate them from the body.
What is Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy (PEMF)
Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields influence cell behavior by inducing electrical changes around and within the cell. Improved blood supply increases the oxygen pressure, activating and regenerating cells. Improved calcium transport increases absorption of calcium in bones and improves the quality of cartilage in joints, decreasing pain dramatically. Acute and even chronic pain, also caused by arthritis and osteoporosis, may disappear completely.
PEMF therapy is based on more than 30 years of worldwide research carried out by renowned scientists and many years of practical experience by thousands of doctors, chiropractors and therapists. Millions of treatments have already been successfully done with Curatron PEMF systems, in more than 80 countries worldwide, improving dramatically the quality of life for numerous people!
What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary).
BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows.
What is JUVÉDERM® XC?
JUVÉDERM® XC is the smooth gel filler that your doctor uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year.
JUVÉDERM® XC is manufactured using HYLACROSS™ technology, creating a smooth-consistency gel. It is infused with lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment. With JUVÉDERM® XC you get the smooth results you expect, with the improved comfort you want. Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds – like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth. Using a dermal filler like JUVÉDERM® XC is a safe and effective way to replace the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.
Mirror Mirror On The Wall, who has the fairest eyelashes of them all? You may if you’re using a new FDA-approved eyelash lengthening drug called Latisse. Latisse was approved in early 2009 for the treatment of eyelash hypotrichosis, a condition marked by the inability to grow eyelashes.
