Frown lines form when facial expressions are made as the muscle under the skin contracts. Over time, as your skin ages, these repeated expressions cause lasting frown lines. Neurotoxins, such as Xeomin®, Botox®, and Dysport® are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions so frown lines are softened.

KYBELLA® may be right for you if: You’re bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness. You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are. You don’t want to have surgery. You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away. The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal. You will need at least 2-4 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart for optimum results. The average amount used is 2-4 vials per treatment. $600 per vial

JUVEDERM ULTRA PLUS / for Lips or Midface fillers

Juvéderm Ultra and Juvéderm Ultra Plus can both improve signs of aging caused by skin laxity, fat loss, and bone support loss. Juvéderm Ultra is also an excellent choice for adding volume to the lips and correcting asymmetry. Both of these fillers are used to treat facial wrinkles and enhance your features. The main difference between the two is that Ultra Plus has a slightly thicker consistency than Ultra. Therefore, Ultra Plus may provide more dramatic and potentially longer-lasting results. On the other hand, Juvéderm Ultra may be more appropriate for fine wrinkles and scars, or subtle augmentation.

Lips also thin and elongate over time, and the graceful cupid’s bow of our youth tends to flatten with age.

The Vampire Facelift is one of the safest and least invasive options out there for cosmetic procedures. While it is known colloquially as Vampire Lifting, this procedure is distinctive because it combines an HA filler with platelet-rich plasma to correct the shape and texture of the face while also enhancing the overall color of the skin. To accomplish this, an HA filler is used to sculpt the face into a more beautiful shape. Then, a PRP serum is developed from your blood to harness the natural healing power of your body by driving more blood to select areas of the face. This will rejuvenate the overall color and texture of the face dramatically enhancing your overall appearance. The cosmetic procedure is non-surgical and can be used to treat wrinkles, acne scars, and other skin irregularities. It has even been shown to be effective in patients with alopecia and hair loss.

What Is Hormonal Imbalance? A hormonal imbalance can occur at any point in a man’s life—even in his early 30s. Symptoms can be brought on by stress, an acute injury, illness, poor nutrition, inadequate exercise, and a host of other factors. Having too much or too little of just one hormone can have ramifications throughout the body, so it’s important to know the indicators of male hormone imbalance, such as low testosterone. What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance in Men? The most common symptoms of hormonal imbalance in men are often disregarded until they impact quality of life so severely that treatment is aggressively sought out. A low level of testosterone in a man means more than just a low sex drive. Hormones are important for regulating most major bodily processes. Symptoms consistent with low testosterone and other cases of hormonal imbalance include: • Low sex drive • Fatigue • Loss of muscle mass • Increased body fat (especially in the waist area) • Decreased bone mass • Mood changes • Low mood • Irritability • Brain fog • Elevated blood sugar • Stress • Anxiousness • High cholesterol and risks of using a synthesized drug. What Are Hormones? Produced within the body, hormones regulate many different systems involving reproduction, mood, bone density, cholesterol metabolism, weight, muscle-to-fat ratio, and more. How Can Hormones Become Unbalanced? What Therapies Are Available to Address Hormone Imbalance in Men? What are the Common Physiological Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance in Men? What are the Common Emotional Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance in Men? What Is Andropause? What Causes Low Testosterone? Low T Level Symptoms T here are several different low T symptoms, and indicators of low T are not always obvious. Here are some common symptoms of testosterone deficiency: Low Energy Loss of Body Hair Loss of Muscle Mass and Strength Weak Bones Mood Swings Low Mood Hot Flashes Low Sex Drive Low Semen Volume Restore Male Hormonal Balance with Testosterone BHRT Pellets There are many symptoms of low testosterone for men beyond a low sex drive.

The Benefits of Hormone Therapy for Women BHRT for women helps them reduce their experience of hot flashes and chronic headaches. It also increases energy, sex drive and overall physical health. In some cases, women pursue this treatment after noting increased irritability and decreased libido, both of which can put a strain on relationships. As if those benefits aren’t great enough, women report getting better sleep, experiencing prolonged focus and are slimming down. All told, BHRT patients report a dramatic improvement in quality of life How Hormone Therapy Works While there are multiple ways to administer the BHRT process, the best hormone therapy in North Miami uses hormone pellets. Hormone pellets are about the size of a grain of rice and get implanted under your skin to provide longer-lasting increases in hormone levels compared to other methods. This releases a steady dose of hormones and avoids the up and down fluctuations patients may notice with any other delivery system (pills, patches, shots, gels, creams and oils). Hormone pellet therapy for women is more stable and also requires less daily involvement on behalf of the patient. Once the pellet is in, it lasts for three to six months. It is without a doubt the best available method. Is Hormone Therapy Right for Me? BHRT is ideal for ladies who are experiencing the negative effects of aging mentioned above and want to feel young again. If age is just a number, you don’t have to give in to nature’s schedule! The best part about natural hormone therapy is that it gives your body the hormones you need without the ugly side effects and risks of using a synthesized drug.

As men age, it’s common for them to start experiencing difficulties in the bedroom. Over 50% of men aged 50 and older experience some trouble getting or keeping an erection. This percentage continues to increase as men age. However, they can have problems with erectile dysfunction at any age. One of the leading causes of erectile dysfunction is a deterioration of blood vessels in the penis. Over time, the blood vessels fill with micro-plaque, which hampers blood flow. The typical course of treatment for this kind of problem is medication, such as Cialis or Viagra. However, what if taking this medication isn’t enough, or causes side effects like headaches and many other symptoms? What if you want a safe alternative because erectile dysfunction pills interact negatively with other medicines you take? That’s where acoustic wave therapy comes into play. How Does Acoustic Wave Therapy Improve Erectile Dysfunction? AWT is a scientifically proven method for fighting and even preventing erectile dysfunction in men in two significant ways. First, it encourages the growth of new blood vessels to improve circulation to the penis. Second, it breaks up the micro-plaque that forms in the blood vessels of the penis and prevents proper blood flow. The results of AWT differ, but it generally helps men achieve a more sustainable and sturdier erection. In some cases, it can even result in a larger erection because of the increased blood flow to the penis

PRP comprises special cells called Platelets, that may cause the growth of the hair follicles by stimulating the stem cells and other cells in the microenvironment of the hair follicle. These special platelet cells accelerate the rate and degree of tissue healing, cellular regeneration, response to injury, and formation of new cell growth. The main purpose of using PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate inactive hair follicles into an active development period. Inside the platelets are many intercellular structures such as glycogen, lysosomes, and alpha granules. These granules within PRP contain clotting and growth factors that are ultimately released throughout the healing and repair process.

Get healthier skin, nails, and hair. How you treat yourself in your 20s, 30s, 40s, and beyond determines how you'll look and feel in the next decades of your life. But statistics show most people don't nourish their bodies correctly, impacting their outward appearance greatly. Manage how you age with this vitamin infusion. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 43% of American adults don't drink enough water a day. 36% of them only drink 1 to 3 cups, while 7% don't drink any at all. In another report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than 2/3 of American adults eat fruit less than 2 times a day, way lower than needed, while only 3/4 eat vegetables less than 3 times a day.

Lighten your skin with this master antioxidant. Also known as the “body’s super hero”, glutathione is one of the most vital antioxidants in the body that protects cells from disease, while making your skin look brighter and more beautiful. Consistent glutathione IV infusions can help you brighten your skin complexion. Unfortunately though, things like a poor diet, pollution, toxins, medications, stress, trauma, aging, infections, and radiation all deplete the body's glutathione levels. This leaves us susceptible to cell disintegration from oxidative stress and free radicals, exposing our bodies to infections and cancers. Our ability to produce and maintain a high level of glutathione in our bodies is critical to recovering from chronic illnesses. It helps us prevent disease, maintain optimal health, as well as improve our overall performance. Raising glutathione levels in the body can decrease muscle damage, reduce recovery time, increase strength and endurance, and shift metabolism from fat production to muscle development. Glutathione recycles antioxidants in the body, playing a vital role in the detoxification process in our bodies. This regenerative antioxidant is so powerful that when at appropriate levels in our bodies it can keep us optimal. Most people see immediate benefits on the skin, often times lightening or whitening the skin complexion to a more desireable skin tone. One of the best ways to obtain glutathione in your body is intravenously. Vitamins such as Vitamin B, B6, B12, folic acid, and Vitamin C are vital for the body’s ability to produce glutathione. Nutrient IV therapy provides a fast and effective way to absorb these nutrients in your body. While a healthy diet and lifestyle can help to slow the body’s decline, supplementing these with regular glutathione IV infusions can help stimulate the body to produce more and thus maintain health and slow down the aging process.

Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (PRP) is becoming increasingly popular for treating tissue injuries and joint pain. With PRP, a physician prepares an enriched supply of a patient's own blood, then injects it at the site of an injury to help promote faster healing of chronic injuries like tendinitis, sprains, and some milder forms of arthritis. If you follow professional sports, you may have heard about PRP—many world-class athletes, including Tiger Woods and Kobe Bryant, credit it for accelerating the repair of their sports injuries. PRP is especially helpful with treating tennis elbow and knee inflammation. Today, more and more orthopedics clinics are offering PRP therapy to help treat non-professional sports injuries and arthritis. We at Coastal Orthopedics are proud to offer PRP injections in our Corpus Christi office. How Much Does Platelet rich therapy Cost the Patient? If you’ve been shopping around for a PRP provider, you’ve probably noticed a frustrating trend: very few medical practices share their fees for platelet rich plasma therapy on their websites or over the phone. Often they’ll ask you to make an appointment for a consultation before giving you any information about how much this treatment will cost you as a patient. This run-around is particularly frustrating when the treatment is fairly new and therefore not covered by most health insurance plans. PRP has only been made available to the public recently—though pro athletes had it at their disposal since the 1980s. Because it’s considered a new therapy by insurers, most clinics who provide PRP treatment, ours included, offer it as a cash-only therapy. Coastal PRP info graphic The bottom line: We at Coastal Ortho feel that our patients deserve transparency and honesty from their medical providers, especially when procedures aren’t covered by their health plans.

These growth factors play an important role in signaling the body to heal itself through clotting, controlling inflammation, and building and healing tissue and skin. The fee for this treatment is: $350 per injection PRP Therapy: Tendon or Muscle Injury If you have chronic tendon or muscle injuries, PRP may be a non-invasive alternative to surgery (or it may delay the need for surgery). For treating a tendon or muscle injury, we recommend two injections spaced 3 to 4 weeks apart.

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy for Reduction of Cellulite The good news is that according to case studies, it has been medically proven that a treatment therapy known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) has been shown to reduce and improve the appearance of cellulite. This treatment option was originally used to treat chronic pain in joints, muscles and other painful injuries. Those suffering from these chronically painful injuries received ESWT and most reported that after only a few treatments, there was marked improvement in mobility, healing and pain management. After further testing, ESWT has shown exciting evidence towards demonstrating real, measurable improvement in the treatment of cellulite reduction. After a series of treatments, the positive results from ESWT may help: Reduce the production and look of cellulite Break down enlarged fat cells Restore connective tissue Improve muscle tone Improve skin elasticity Promote lymphatic drainage (elimination of toxins/waste) Improve blood flow/circulation Promote increased production of collagen Reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars Tighten, firm and smooth out loose skin How ESWT Works Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), also commonly referred to as Shockwave Therapy, Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Therapy (EPAT) and Extracorporeal Acoustic Wave Therapy, is an out-patient treatment used to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Shock Therapy refers to the energetic, acoustic waves which create vibrations that positively impact the underlying connective tissue, cells and ultimately, the skin itself. The term “extracorporeal” refers to the method by which the shock waves are transmitted through the skin. In this case, the shock waves are delivered externally through a pad and into the skin. Along with treating cellulite, the therapy will also help to stimulate collagen production, rejuvenate connective tissue, improve elasticity of the skin and give skin an overall firmer, smoother and tighter appearance. What is really happening during the ESWT process is that shock waves cause micro tears in the connective tissues while breaking down the fatty deposits (cellulite). When the minor tearing (injury) occurs, the body automatically increases the amount of collagen to the affected area as a means of healing. When the collagen goes to work and restores/heals tendons and tissue, the treated/injured tendons and tissue are replaced with a denser, rejuvenated frame (collagen fibers) and from there, firmer and tighter tendons and tissue. From the outside, the visible result is lifted, firmer, smoother skin. The shock waves are transmitted via handheld treatment device which delivers a series of acoustic (similar to sound) waves directly into the deep connective tissue of the affected area. Acoustic waves generate strong, energized pulses which send vibrations directly to the skin and tissue. By using a handheld device, “shock” (or radial/acoustic pressure) waves target enlarged fat cells and break them down. The procedure starts by covering the area to be treated with an antiseptic gel (much like the gel used during an ultrasound). The handheld device is moved in either a grid-like pattern both vertically and horizontally across the treatment area. Another method is to move the device in a series of wavy (or “snake”) lines in the treatment area in both a vertical and horizontal direction. Based on individual evaluation and desired results, the appropriate pressure, number of shocks and intensity of shocks will be determined by the clinician. The tip or head of the shockwave therapy device treats the entire area. By applying the correct amount of pressure and executing a number of shocks at frequent intervals, the underlying tissue can be regenerated once the enlarged fat cells (cellulite) are broken down. The level of pain during or just after completion of the treatment may be moderate, but typically passes in 48 hours or less. Over-the-counter pain relievers can help reduce the level of pain or discomf

The results were an amazing average reduction in pain of 92% with only one treatment.
