Summit Medical is now offering the PRP "Vampire Facelift" !

The PRP Facelift is the newest and most cost-effective way to get the facelift “look” without the expense and downtime.

What is PRP?

  PRP is a natural product created from your own body. A small amount of blood is drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube that is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. Red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and the plasma (the clear fluid). This plasma now contains a higher than normal number of platelets and is called platelet rich plasma, or PRP.  

Why Platelets Rejuvenate Skin?

  Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells. The PRP, injected into specific areas of the skin, act as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and thus acts as to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles and creating smoother skin texture and tone.  

Benefits to PRP:

· Reduces acne scarring 

· Reduces stretch marks 

· Fights Wrinkles 

· Stimulates Collagen 

· There are no side effects 

· You get to experience the bliss that is having plasma applied to your freshly needled face (I’m serious about this!) 

· There is no downtime after this treatment (but maybe don’t make plans immediately after. Stay in and watch Netflix.)  

Who Can Get It?

 This procedure can be performed on every skin type 



Aftercare:

Apply Aquaphor every 4 hours after treatment and cleanse with dove soap. Makeup can be worn the next day.   


Maintenance: For the best results, it’s recommended that patients get one treatment per month for three months followed by one treatment yearly.

Hormone Balancing

Doing everything right, but still struggling to lose weight?

 A lot of people seem to think weight loss is just a case of simple math. That all it takes is “eating less and exercising more.” That the only reason someone is overweight is because of their self-control. Ladies and gentlemen, that is a lie. When it comes to burning more calories than you consume, this so-called weight loss equation only applies to perfect hormonal specimens; people who have their cortisol, thyroid, insulin, adrenals, estrogen and testosterone in balance. Ironically, these are rarely the people who need to drop a few pounds.   We’ve found that it’s nearly impossible to lose that spare tire, kimono arms, or bat wings when your cortisol is too high or your thyroid has ground to a halt.   Almost anyone who struggles with weight loss also battles a hormone imbalance and are amazed at how easy weight loss becomes once hormones are back in balance.

HORMONE BALANCE: YOU’RE KEY TO BETTER HEALTH

If you’ve tried to understand changes in your health, or perhaps even treated your symptoms in ways that don’t seem to work, testing your hormones may be an important next step.  

A DELICATE BALANCING ACT

Hormones exist in harmony with each other — partners in a delicate balancing act.  When levels are in balance, body systems are stable.  When levels fall out of balance, normal function is disrupted, leading to chronic symptoms, disorders and disease.   

Symptoms that may signify an imbalance include:  

• Fatigue 

• Headaches  

• Weight gain • Thinning hair  

• Sleep disturbances • Depression  

• Irregular cycles (women) 

• Foggy thinking  

• Mood swings/irritability

 • Loss of libido (sex drive) 

• Decreased urinary flow / Increased urge (men)   

Summit Medical can help...

FINDING YOUR BALANCE active in cells throughout the body, hormones govern key facets of our health such as moods, memory, energy, sleep, libido and fertility. They not only regulate our immune system and response to stress, but help maintain bone and muscle mass, too.  Factors such as stress, diet, exercise and environmental toxins impact our overall hormone wellness. This is particularly true at mid-life, when reproductive functions diminish and significant hormone production is taken over by the adrenal glands. Symptoms resulting from hormonal shifts in our bodies can be felt strongly—leading us to feel physically or mentally out of balance. Testing and monitoring hormone levels enable our health care providers to find appropriate solutions that alleviate your symptoms and lead to hormonal wellness.
