Age Management Services
Caroline Turek, M.D. at The Centre for Restorative Medicine is a Ajax Ontario Anti Aging Services Specialist that offers anti-aging and integrative medicine services.
Some services offered at The Centre for Restorative Medicine include:
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical Hormones are identical in chemical and molecular structure and function to the hormones produced in the human body, and they are usually produced from soy or yam products. In women, perimeopause and menopause are the times when hormones decline the most. Using Bioidentical Hormones to restore hormones to healthy levels can reduce the symptoms of hormone decline without producing unpleasant side effects. Many people have been able to enjoy increased libido, sexual function, muscle tone, energy, strength, endurance, cognition, and motivation after using Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy to balance their hormones.
Medical Weight Loss
Often times, weight loss resistance is due to hormonal imbalances within both estrogen and progesterone. While deficient levels of estrogen can cause the body to retain body fat, low levels of progesterone can cause the body to have water retention and bloating. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help women to lose weight by balancing these two hormones, which can improve metabolism and metabolic functions.
Toxic heavy metals can accumulate in the body over time, which can drag down the immune and endocrine system and lead to hormonal imbalances. Chelation therapy can help to remove toxic metals from the body, which can help the endocrine system to function at more optimal levels and produce healthy levels of hormones.
The clinic offers several cosmetic services that can reduce the physical signs of aging, and some of the services offered may include laser treatments to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, while tightening skin.
Botox is a treatment for wrinkles caused by repeated movements. It is a prescribed medicine injected into the muscles. Botox is intended to enhance the way you look, not change it, while helping with fine lines and wrinkles. No anesthetic is required, and you can resume normal activities immediately.
Dermal fillers are injected into your skin to fill lines and restore lost volume, enhancing your facial contours and lips for natural looking results. They are injected into the deeper layers of skin at the site of sunken areas, creases, or scars to smooth and fill out the area for a firmer, more youthful appearance.
Laser Hair Removal
Newer technologies make laser hair removal safer, more comfortable, and a convenient alternative to other hair removal methods. The Cutera XEO technology has an advanced cooling system that protects the epidermis, allowing the laser to target the hair follicle. The Cutera XEO settings do have to be adjusted for tanned or darker skin, but the energy is still sufficient to effectively disable the hair regrowth.
