What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a practice central to traditional Chinese medicine, and a natural approach to health that has helped tens of thousands of people. The traditional view of acupuncture focused on the idea that the body has an essential energy or life force that flows along defined pathways in your body.
When that energy becomes impeded or interrupted, wide-ranging health problems follow. Acupuncture is a method of re-balancing the flow of energy by inserting a series of thin, flexible needles into specific points on your body, and thereby restoring optimal health.
Modern medicine looks at acupuncture under a different lens, focusing on the biochemical reactions that occur when introducing treatment needles into your tissues. Regardless of which view you take, a substantial body of evidence backs the results available from acupuncture.
What issues can acupuncture treat?
Acupuncture at Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic can treat numerous conditions, all without the use of invasive surgical procedures or pharmaceutical intervention. Some of the complaints that acupuncture can help resolve include:
Nausea and vomiting related to chemotherapy
- Dental pain
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Migraines and headaches
- Musculoskeletal pain
- Respiratory disorders
- Gastrointestinal disease
- Menstrual cramping
This is far from a comprehensive list. During your initial visit, your provider discusses which treatment options are right for you and whether acupuncture is something you should consider.
Is acupuncture safe?
In the hands of a skilled practitioner, acupuncture is both safe and effective. The treatment needles are sterile, thin, and flexible. The providers at Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic only use needles once, so there is no risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens.
During a typical acupuncture session at Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic, anywhere from 5-20 needles might be inserted. The location of the needles might be far removed from the area where you’ve been experiencing discomfort. Depending on your needs, the needles might be gently manipulated during your session, or left in place for 10-20 minutes.
After your treatment, you may feel deeply relaxed or energized, depending on how your body reacts to the treatment. It will likely take a series of treatments to achieve optimal results, depending on your specific medical issues. Your provider can explain what to expect during your initial visit.
If you have questions or concerns about acupuncture or would like to give this approach a try, call Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic or visit the online booking page to set up your appointment today.
Women go through a range of changes as they move through the phases of life, and some of those changes can cause unpleasant symptoms. For women in and around Phoenix, Arizona, Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic offers solutions to women’s health issues, including but not limited to, hormone replacement therapy. To learn more about naturopathic medicine for women’s health, call the office or schedule an appointment online.
What women’s health issues does naturopathic medicine treat?
Naturopathy offers a number of benefits for women who want to achieve a healthier balance in their lives. The focus of naturopathic medicine is to treat each patient as a whole person, and not just the sum of their symptoms and test results.
An integrative approach allows for treatments that encompass your physiological needs as well as your emotional needs. For many women, finding balance is both a goal and a challenge, and naturopathic medicine is a powerful tool in achieving and sustaining that outcome.
Some of the women’s health issues that the providers at Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic can assist with include:
- Perimenopause and menopause care
- Painful periods
- Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
- Abnormal bleeding (menstrual irregularities)
- Cancer prevention for women in breast cancer remission
- Adjunctive naturopathic care during chemotherapy or radiation
- Fertility support
- Pain and fatigue during pregnancy
- Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
Another impactful service the practice provides is holistic care after cancer treatment. For women who’ve fought cancer, the ability to refocus on what their body needs is an excellent way to move forward in the best possible health.
What are my options for menopause care?
Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic offers comprehensive menopause care. Your provider begins with a thorough evaluation to clearly identify your current needs. That allows them to craft a customized treatment plan to help you feel more like yourself as you navigate menopause and beyond.
Hormone replacement therapy is the most common treatment for menopause symptoms. This approach supplements your natural hormone production with synthetic hormones. Because fluctuating hormone production is the root cause of many menopause symptoms, supplementation is a powerful treatment option.
Bioidentical hormones are created from plant sources and share the exact same chemical makeup as the hormones your body produces naturally. Your body cannot detect the difference between bioidentical hormones and those your body manufactures.
What can be done to treat dysmenorrhea?
Dysmenorrhea is the medical term used to describe painful periods. If you dread your period because it interferes with your normal daily routines, acupuncture can help you regain control over your schedule.
A growing body of evidence supports the efficacy of acupuncture for period pain. Frequent treatments can reduce the intensity of your period pain as well as the duration of cramping and other symptoms. Acupuncture is also great for addressing pain from uterine fibroids and endometriosis.
If you’d like more information on the role that naturopathic medicine can play in your women’s health care plan, visit Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic or schedule an appointment online.
Hormonal disorders become much more common as we age, causing an array of symptoms that detract from health and overall quality of life. Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona, uses state-of-the-art holistic approaches to treat hormonal imbalances, relieving symptoms and improving overall wellness. To learn more about hormonal disorders, call the office or schedule an appointment online.
What causes menopause?
Menopause occurs when the body’s natural production of estrogen declines as a result of aging. Often referred to as a sex hormone, estrogen does play an integral part in menstruation and reproduction, but it’s also important for many other functions. Strictly speaking, menopause refers to the time when periods have completely stopped, while perimenopause (or premenopause) refers to the years leading up to menopause when symptoms begin.
What is low testosterone?
Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone that also plays a role in other important functions. The body relies on a steady level of testosterone for optimal wellness, but aging causes production of the hormone to decrease, resulting in an array of symptoms. Low testosterone (or low T) is a common problem among men, with symptoms beginning usually in the 40s and becoming more prevalent with age.
What symptoms are associated with low estrogen or low testosterone levels?
Both low estrogen and low testosterone can cause symptoms like sexual dysfunction, lethargy, and fatigue, weight gain, problems sleeping, problems focusing or concentrating, and thinning hair. Women may also experience vaginal dryness, hot flashes, night sweats, and painful intercourse.
How are hormonal disorders treated?
Treatment for hormonal imbalances begins with a thorough physical exam and lab workup including blood tests, hormone panels, thyroid tests, and adrenal function tests to identify underlying causes of hormonal issues. Some mild to moderate symptoms can be resolved with lifestyle and dietary support, including the use of nutritional supplements, IV therapy, and acupuncture.
More severe symptoms can benefit from hormone replacement therapy that uses synthetic hormones to replace the hormones no longer being produced by the body. Ongoing evaluations and testing help ensure therapy remains adjusted for each patient’s specific needs.
What are bioidentical hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are lab-created hormones developed to mirror the chemical structure of hormones produced naturally by the body. These hormones are processed by the body and eliminated from the body in the same way as natural hormones, significantly decreasing the risk of developing side effects. Bioidentical hormone therapy is customized to match the needs of each patient for optimal effects.
If you’re concerned that you might have a hormone imbalance, the team at Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic can identify any problem and help rebalance your hormones, restoring your health. Call the office or book an appointment online today.
Dozens of autoimmune diseases have been identified, resulting in symptoms that range from mild to severe. Phoenix Anti-Aging Clinic offers comprehensive autoimmune disease treatment options to help patients from Phoenix, Arizona, overcome symptoms and lead healthier lives. Call the office or schedule an appointment online to learn more about autoimmune disease.
What is an autoimmune disease?
Autoimmune diseases are disorders that develop when the immune system malfunctions, often attacking healthy tissue instead of focusing on germs and other pathogens.
What causes autoimmune diseases?
Although doctors know autoimmune diseases occur as a result of immune system dysfunction, the causes of that dysfunction are not well understood. Most researchers agree autoimmune diseases are probably caused by a combination of factors including diet, lifestyle habits, environmental exposures, and genetic factors.
The gastrointestinal tract plays a major role in immune system function, and issues affecting these organs and functions can have a significant bearing on the development of autoimmune diseases.
What types of autoimmune diseases are there?
There are dozens of autoimmune diseases, some of the most common diseases include:
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Type 1 diabetes
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Thyroid disease
- Multiple sclerosis
- Sjogren’s syndrome
- Celiac disease
- Myasthenia gravis
- Ankylosing spondylitis
It’s important to visit Phoenix Anti-Aging Clinic to find out how you can prevent or treat these common diseases.
What symptoms do autoimmune diseases cause?
Specific symptoms can vary dramatically based on the specific disease. Some of the more common general symptoms include:
- Fatigue or malaise
- Chronic aches and pains
- Low fever
- General feeling of being unwell
How are autoimmune diseases treated?
Because there are so many different types of autoimmune diseases, your provider will begin treatment with a comprehensive exam to understand the extent of the symptoms and their progression.
A complete personal and family medical history are important for identifying symptoms and determining any genetic conditions related to autoimmune diseases or other diseases that can cause similar symptoms. Lab testing, including blood work and urinalysis, can also play a pivotal role in diagnosis and management. Testing for food sensitivities may also help.
Following diagnosis, treatment can include:
- IV therapy and injections to support a healthy immune system and optimal function
- Nutritional supplements and nutritional counseling
- Hormone balancing
- Biotherapeutic drainage (homeopathy)
Treatment will need to be customized to suit the needs of the individual patient, and frequent follow-up visits will help ensure the plan remains on track as the patient’s needs evolve.
Call the office or schedule an appointment online to find out more about autoimmune diseases.
Few things can get in the way of your daily routines more than GI disorders. For men and women in the greater Phoenix, Arizona, area who are searching for answers and solutions, The doctors at Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic offers both. Book a time to sit down with the providers to discuss how their approach to naturopathic care aligns with your treatment needs and goals. To discuss your treatment options, call the office or schedule an appointment online.
What are GI disorders?
Gastrointestinal disorders, or GI disorders, are diseases of the digestive tract. That includes your esophagus, stomach, large intestine, small intestine, liver, pancreas, and gallbladder.
Most types of digestive disease present symptoms that are hard to ignore. These include:
- Abdominal bloating or discomfort
- Belly pain
- Nausea and vomiting
- Weight gain or weight loss
- Bloody stool
The first step in improving your digestive function is determining the source of your symptoms.
Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic offers outstanding diagnostic and treatment services for a wide range of gastrointestinal conditions, including:
Fungal overgrowth in the small intestine
Bowel overgrowth in the small intestine
Acid reflux, heartburn, gastrointestinal reflux disease (GERD)
The providers also treat irritable bowel syndrome and food intolerances or sensitivities.
What is irritable bowel syndrome?
Irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS, is a common disorder of the large intestine. It’s a chronic condition, which means you need to manage your symptoms throughout your life.
Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic offers a holistic approach to help you find relief from the symptoms of IBS. Lifestyle modifications play a big role in that process. Learning which foods exacerbate your IBS and finding healthy alternatives is a central part of the treatment process.
The good news is that IBS does not damage your bowel tissues, nor does it increase your risk of colorectal cancer. The symptoms can interfere with normal daily activities, however, and it’s important to seek treatment.
How can lifestyle changes improve GI disease?
Holistic health care considers much more than a specific list of symptoms. Your provider works with you to evaluate how your physical, emotional, mental, social, and environmental elements are working to impact your health and wellness. That approach allows for a much more detailed diagnosis and treatment plan.
Very often, lifestyle factors are the primary contributor to gastrointestinal symptoms. What you eat, when you eat it, and how much physical activity you get each day can create or relieve digestive issues. Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic offers comprehensive testing for food sensitivities and guidance on how to alter your diet.
Food allergies, intolerance, and sensitivities are incredibly common and are the source of many digestive symptoms. If you have issues with gluten or any other food, your provider can help you construct a healthy diet that will relieve unpleasant symptoms. Those changes can help you feel more energized and healthier than you’ve felt in years.
What treatments can help improve GI disease?
Your treatment plan from Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic is devised to meet your current set of needs. That path might include acupuncture sessions, which can not only relieve digestive pain but can also improve the fatigue and brain fog that so often accompanies digestive issues.
Integrating high-quality probiotics is also an important part of treatment. As you move through your personalized treatment plan, your provider continues to monitor your progress and make adjustments as needed.
In some cases, IV therapy and targeted injections can give your system the boost needed to promote healing and improve GI function.
If you’re tired of organizing your life around GI symptoms, come in to learn more about digestive health services. The sooner you get started, the sooner you can return to the activities you love. Call Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic or schedule an appointment online today.
High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure has been linked with many serious medical issues, including heart disease and stroke. The doctors at Phoenix Anti-Aging Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona, offers patients a holistic approach to high blood pressure treatment aimed at supporting optimal health and wellness. To learn more about high blood pressure treatment, call the office or schedule an appointment online.
What is blood pressure?
Blood pressure is a measurement of the force needed to circulate blood throughout the body. Measured in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg), blood pressure measurements yield two figures.
The first number is the systolic pressure, the amount of force exerted when the heart is contracting; the second number is called the diastolic pressure, and reflects the amount of force or pressure in the vessels when the heart rests between beats. High blood pressure is generally considered to be a pressure exceeding 120/80 mm Hg.
What are the symptoms of high blood pressure?
High blood pressure usually causes no symptoms until a serious event like a stroke or heart attack occurs. Having routine blood pressure screenings is critical to diagnosing high blood pressure before it causes damage as well as for maintaining optimal blood pressure levels.
Why is high blood pressure dangerous?
High blood pressure exerts abnormal levels of pressure or force on blood vessel walls, resulting in damage to the heart, kidneys, brain or other organs and tissues. Without proper and ongoing management, high blood pressure (or hypertension) can result in stroke, heart attack, heart disease, vision problems, kidney damage, and even dementia.
What causes hypertension?
High blood pressure can be caused by many factors. Atherosclerosis (so-called hardening of the arteries) is a major cause, developing when the blood vessels become stiff and narrow, usually as a result of poor diet, obesity, genetics or leading a sedentary lifestyle.
How is high blood pressure treated?
We offer a proprietary cardio-metabolic solutions program that takes multiple factors into account when assessing and treating high blood pressure. Treatment begins with a comprehensive evaluation to understand risk factors contributing to high blood pressure.
Each treatment plan focuses on lifestyle changes and naturopathic methods to reduce and manage blood pressure while also supporting optimal health and wellness. Nutritional supplementation and counseling are also used to address issues like high cholesterol, obesity, and other issues that can elevate blood pressure to unhealthy levels.
For proper high blood pressure treatment, call the office or schedule an appointment online.
Sleep problems can have a major effect on overall health and wellness. The doctors at Phoenix Anti-Aging Clinic helps patients from throughout the Phoenix, Arizona, area overcome insomnia without relying on potentially habit-forming medications so they can enjoy better, more restorative sleep. For more options on how to address insomnia issues, call the office or schedule an appointment online.
I have trouble sleeping from time to time. Do I have insomnia?
Everyone has trouble sleeping on occasion, but if the issue becomes chronic, resulting in daytime drowsiness or interfering with normal routines, it may be insomnia. People with insomnia may have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, or may experience wakefulness during the night. Many people with insomnia wake up earlier than intended, resulting in less sleep than needed to refresh the body or sleep that’s of poor quality.
What are the symptoms of insomnia?
In addition to having trouble falling asleep or remaining asleep, insomnia can cause:
- Daytime sleepiness
- Feeling groggy or unrested when waking in the morning
- Chronic stress or easily becoming stressed out
- Chronic headaches
- Irritability and moodiness
- Problems focusing and concentrating
- Decreased productivity at school or work
- Persistent worries or anxiety
- Gastrointestinal problems
- Increased risk for serious accidents including vehicle accidents
People with insomnia are also more prone to illness and depression, and their immune systems are weaker than those who get normal amounts of restorative sleep.
How is insomnia treated?
Insomnia treatment begins with a thorough examination by our doctors and a personal and family health history to determine possible causes. Lab tests or a sleep study may also be ordered. Some sleep disorders are related to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a serious condition that causes breathing to be interrupted many times during sleep - periods so brief, the sleeper may not know it’s happening.
Once insomnia is diagnosed, we will begin treatment to focus on addressing any underlying causes, including hormonal imbalances that become much more common with age, pain issues and other potential causes. People with obstructive sleep apnea may need to have CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure), a therapeutic option that uses a mask to deliver a continual stream of air to help keep the airways open during sleep.
Most patients benefit from a combination of medical treatment and lifestyle changes aimed at supporting healthy sleep habits. Each treatment plan by our doctors will be carefully customized to suit the individual patient’s needs for optimal results.
To find the proper treatment for your insomnia, call the office or schedule an appointment online.
Adrenal fatigue causes chronic fatigue and other symptoms that can take a toll on daily activities. Phoenix Anti-Aging Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona, provides state-of-the-art care for patients with adrenal fatigue, helping them overcome their symptoms without relying on medications.
What is adrenal fatigue?
Adrenal fatigue is a chronic condition that occurs when the adrenal glands stop functioning normally, resulting in decreased production of hormones and special chemicals called neurotransmitters that are critical for normal body function. The adrenal glands are small, pyramidal-shaped glands located on top of the kidneys, and the hormones and neurotransmitters they secrete play important roles in regulating stress, blood sugar, and blood pressure, reducing inflammation, and promoting normal energy levels throughout the course of the day. Hormones produced by the adrenal glands include cortisol, sex hormones (testosterone and estrogen), DHEA and aldosterone. The neurotransmitters epinephrine and norepinephrine are also produced by these glands. When the glands are “overworked,” they can become fatigued, making it more difficult for them to produce the correct amounts of these important chemicals.
What causes adrenal fatigue?
Several factors can cause or contribute to adrenal fatigue. Some of the most common causes include:
- chronic stress that causes the glands to continually produce too much cortisol
- illnesses like pneumonia, flu or bronchitis
- chronic illnesses like autoimmune disease
What are the symptoms of adrenal fatigue?
The symptoms of adrenal fatigue are often subtle, especially in the initial stages of the condition. Common symptoms include:
- frequent colds or flu
- pain and inflammation
- high or low blood pressure
- sexual dysfunction or low libido
- problems regulating blood sugar
- cardiovascular problems
- a general feeling of unwellness, lethargy, or malaise
- weight gain, especially in the belly area
- problems focusing or problems with memory
- dizziness when standing
Sometimes, people with adrenal fatigue will feel somewhat better after eating. Not everyone with adrenal fatigue will have the same symptoms, so a careful discussion of all concerns is important for ensuring the condition is properly and promptly diagnosed.
How is adrenal fatigue treated?
Treatment begins with an in-depth evaluation including a cortisol rhythm test that uses samples of saliva to evaluate cortisol levels throughout the day. Once the level and nature of adrenal fatigue have been determined, a custom treatment plan will be developed that may include nutritional supplementation and support, IV therapy and injections, herbal medicine, acupuncture, and lifestyle and dietary changes.
Millions of people suffer from chronic pain and struggle to find real, long-term solutions for their symptoms. Phoenix Anti-Aging Clinic helps patients from throughout the Phoenix, Arizona, region identify the underlying causes of pain, using state-of-the-art holistic approaches to stop pain at its source. Call the office or schedule an appointment online to learn more.
What’s the difference between chronic and acute pain?
Acute pain is pain that tends to begin and mount rapidly, such as the pain experienced following an injury. Chronic pain is pain that persists or recurs over a long period, usually as a result of a disease like arthritis or fibromyalgia or cancer. While acute pain typically resolves once the cause is treated, chronic pain can persist for months or years, taking a huge toll on quality of life and contributing to depression and anxiety.
What factors can contribute to chronic pain?
Chronic pain can be caused or exacerbated by many factors, including poor nutrition, specific lifestyle habits, hormonal imbalances, long-term use of prescription medications, previous injuries or even the aging process. One of the keys to determining the most appropriate treatment is to determine the underlying causes of chronic pain so treatment focuses directly on those causes rather than solely focusing on the symptoms.
How can chronic pain be managed?
At Phoenix Anti-Aging Clinic, pain management begins with a comprehensive physical exam including lab tests and a detailed medical history to identify underlying causes of pain. Once those causes have been identified, treatment may include holistic approaches like acupuncture, nutritional counseling, as well as lifestyle guidance to help patients tap into their bodies’ own natural ability to heal and relieve pain.
IV Therapy/vitamin Injections
Optimal levels of vitamins and nutrients are essential for maintaining health and wellness, especially with age. The physicians at Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic offer custom IV treatment for patients in Phoenix, Arizona, helping each patient get the nutrients they need for maximum benefits.
What is IV treatment?
IV treatment uses special formulations of vitamins and minerals to support and promote optimal health and to help bolster the immune system so diseases and illnesses may be avoided. Today’s modern diets and hectic eating habits rarely include all the essential vitamins and nutrients needed for optimal health and wellness. The need for supplementation becomes even direr as the aging process kicks in, reducing the body’s ability to break down and absorb nutrients, and during times of stress when the body’s immune system may be weakened. IV therapy is designed to supplement nutrient levels, so the body has what it needs for optimum function.
How is IV therapy performed?
IV therapy delivers vitamins and minerals directly to the bloodstream, bypassing the gastrointestinal system where many nutrients are destroyed or aren’t adequately absorbed. Therapy consists of intravenous administration using injections or IV drips to ensure the nutrients enter the bloodstream whole, without being adulterated by the digestive system or other biological processes.
What issues can be treated with IV therapy?
Vitamins and minerals are vital for every process performed by the body, and IV therapy has many applications. In addition to supporting general health and wellness, IV therapy is also used to treat or prevent:
- common colds and flu
- migraines and other chronic headaches
- asthma and allergies
- chronic fatigue
- adrenal fatigue
- hormonal imbalances
- cardiovascular disease
- immune system deficiencies and weaknesses
- fibromyalgia and other pain syndromes
- environmental toxicity
- some cancers
IV therapy is also commonly used to boost metabolism, enhancing other treatments and lifestyle changes including weight loss and smoking cessation.
What types of IV therapies are available at Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic?
Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic provides an array of IV therapy options, including:
- Myer’s cocktail, a combination of B vitamins, vitamin C, calcium and other important minerals and fluids aimed at supporting optimal health and increasing energy levels
- Detox IV designed to remove toxins and help the body heal after exposure to environmental toxins
- High-dose vitamin C to support a healthy immune system and treat or prevent acute and chronic ailments
One of the benefits of IV therapy is that it can be adjusted and customized to suit each patient’s unique needs.

Men’s health needs include problems such as loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, and other issues related to the genitals and prostate that can have a severe impact on well-being. The experienced naturopathic physicians of Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona, can diagnose and treat men’s health issues with compassion and understanding. They provide effective solutions to these common problems with treatments such as testosterone replacement therapy. Call the office today to find out more, or schedule an appointment online.
What men’s health issues does naturopathic medicine treat?
Naturopathic medicine offers significant benefits for men who are looking for a better way to achieve overall well-being as well as addressing specific health concerns.
At Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic, the team has considerable expertise in using naturopathic approaches to treat a wide range of men’s health issues, including:
- Low testosterone (low T)
- Erectile dysfunction (ED)
- Low libido
- High blood pressure
- Mood disorders
Naturopathy focuses on treating every patient holistically, looking at all the influences on your health rather than defining you by a list of test results. Using this approach enables the physicians to provide a more well-rounded treatment plan that not only deals with any symptoms you’re experiencing but leaves you generally feeling fitter and healthier.
How can naturopathic medicine help with low testosterone?
Naturopathic medicine can help with low testosterone (low T) using testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). Testosterone is the male sex hormone, which declines as you get older and sometimes reaches a level low enough to cause unwanted symptoms like erectile dysfunction and low libido. Additional symptoms of low T include:
- Loss of muscle mass
- Chronic fatigue
- Low energy levels
- Loss of facial and body hair
- Problems concentrating
The physicians can measure your testosterone levels to see if low T could be causing your symptoms, in which case a course of testosterone replacement therapy could significantly improve your overall well-being.
How can naturopathic medicine help with erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction, or ED, occurs when you wish to have sex but are experiencing problems getting or maintaining an erection. This can happen to anyone now and again, but if it becomes a regular issue, ED can cause serious distress.
ED can arise from several causes, including reduced blood flow to the penis due to a build-up of microplaque, and psychological issues. However, a common cause of ED is low levels of testosterone. Using testosterone replacement therapy could make a significant difference in your ability to achieve and maintain an erection.
Find out more about the benefits of testosterone replacement therapy and the naturopathic approach to men’s health by calling Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic today, or book an appointment online.

Wrinkle Relaxers using Botox or Dysport
Wrinkles are very common as you age. A wrinkle is a crease or a fold in the skin that is also known as a rhytid. Many people long to get rid of their wrinkles and have a more youthful look. Because of this, patients seek out wrinkle treatments to become more confident in their skin.
Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle is then not able to contract. This causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. Botox is typically used on the forehead lines, around the eyes, and frown lines. Typically wrinkles are caused as we age, but they are also brought on by sun damage and gravity.
Receiving Botox actually only takes a few short minutes, and anesthesia is not required. You will simply get injected with a fine needle into the specific muscle and feel only mild discomfort.
Dysport® is an FDA-approved purified neurotoxin prescription injection that is primarily used to treat moderate to severe frown lines. To effectively minimize the appearance of frown lines between your eyebrows, Dysport’s purified Botulinum Toxin properties weaken the muscles in your glabellar area. Dysport® is incredibly effective which is why it is frequently used to enhance other parts of the face.
How long does Dysport® last?
Dysport® lasts anywhere from three to four months and usually takes up to seven days to take effect. The lifespan and effectiveness of Dysport® primarily depends on your physiological makeup, which is why we recommend consulting your doctor at Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic before beginning treatment. Some common side effects of Dysport® include headache, swelling, injection site pain, or nausea.
Dermal Fillers using Juvederm or Restylane
Dermal fillers are injectable gel-like substances used to treat a wide range of cosmetic issues in the face and hands, including diminished volume, fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. Several different companies make fillers, and each has its own unique formulations, which are useful for treating distinct problems in separate areas of the face.
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is an injectable, colorless, hyaluronic acid gel. It contains a small quantity of local anesthetic and is injected into the facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds. It is typically injected around the nose and mouth.
Juvederm XC is very safe because hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring. Juvederm XC can last up to two years. After those two years are up, you are welcome to come back and receive treatment again. You can expect results immediately. There is no downtime after the treatment either.
Restylane is the most commonly used lip enhancement for volume and contouring. It is also used to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles that many people get as they age. It may also be used for filling in aging-related facial hollows under and around the eyes. Finally, it can be used for cheek volume and contouring of the chin, forehead, and nose.
Restylane is a great option for people who want to revitalize their skin and increase its elasticity and structure without adding volume.
Unfortunately, many people accumulate fat under their chin and become self-conscious of it. This is typically common as people age as well. As you age, it is harder and harder to get rid of fat through proper diet and exercise alone. If you feel as though you have tried everything to get rid of your “double chin”, but nothing has worked, the solution is Kybella.
We want you to feel comfortable in your body. That is why we are here to answer any of your questions. Prior to receiving Kybella, we will ensure that you are in good health so that you get the results that you are looking for without complications. If you have any questions before or after receiving the medication, you are always welcome to ask us. We will be here for you every step of the way.
PRP Facial Rejuvenation
Skin rejuvenation treatments are the ideal choice for patients seeking to reduce the effects of aging by restoring your skin’s youthful elasticity and brightness. Skin rejuvenation can also be used for therapeutic purposes to treat skin conditions such as rosacea, irregular pigmentation, broken capillaries, spider veins, freckles, or brown spots. For cosmetic enhancements, skin rejuvenation can reduce the signs of aging on the face, arms, and hands through a variety of treatment options.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive facial treatment that encourages the natural rejuvenation and anti-aging processes of your skin while injecting serum to encourage collagen and elastin growth.
The advanced surgical device used ensures precise punctures with the necessary depth and speed needed to target collagen growth in specific areas of the face.
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Large pores
- Minor scars
- Stretch marks
Microneedling is best used on those with healthy skin and no current acne. The tiny, sterile needles puncture the skin repeatedly, triggering a healing response. Patients may return to activities the next day. Redness is the most common side effect. Dryness, stinging, and tingling are also reported.
Results peak around 4-6 months, with the newly built collagen lasting for years. Most patients come back every few months for microneedling sessions.
PRP Hair Restoration
Here at Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic we use platelet-rich plasma therapy to help with hair restoration. Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a 100% natural way to harness your body’s own regenerative powers. In just 20 minutes, this treatment can help treat thinning hair and can help restore your confidence.
How does it work?
- Your blood is drawn normally, just as it would be done in your PCP’s office.
- The blood is then purified in a centrifuge to extract the plasma.
- The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is then injected into the areas in need of treatment using microneedles for maximum patient comfort and precision, stimulating your natural regenerative process.
Mild improvement will be noticeable within the first few weeks, but maximum results may not occur until the 4-6 month mark. Most patients will require several treatments to achieve their desired results.
PDO Threading For Natural Face Lifts
Thread facelifts are one of the newest innovations in treating skin laxity caused by aging skin. While skin resurfacing and fillers can address minor losses in firmness, the options become more limited aside from traditional facelift for more moderate cases. Phoenix Anti Aging Clinic is pleased to offer thread facelifts as an option for those who do not want to undergo the extensiveness of a full facelift but need more than fillers to firm the skin around their face and neck.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What does the Thread Facelift procedure involve?
The Thread Facelift procedure involves having temporary sutures placed, under local anesthesia, in strategic areas of the face, which lift the skin. Typically, patients can expect this procedure to lift the skin a few millimeters, providing a subtle but noticeable improvement in skin firmness and smoothness, helping patients to achieve a more youthful appearance.
Additionally, the placement of sutures provokes the body’s healing response, which results in surges of collagen being directed to the treated areas. As we age, we produce less and less collagen, which can lead to increasingly thin skin that cannot support the underlying tissue and results in a lax, wrinkled appearance. Collagen helps fight off some of these signs of aging, and thus the increased collagen production caused by the Thread Facelift also benefits your skin’s collagen production.
