Anti-Aging Q&A

What is anti-aging?

Anti-aging is an internal medicine subspecialty focused on slowing down or minimizing the effects of getting older.

As you age, your body experiences various changes. Your hormones fluctuate, you begin losing muscle mass, and it’s difficult to maintain a healthy weight. Anti-aging treatments address these and other issues so you can feel your best, regardless of age.

What types of issues can benefit from anti-aging treatment?

The team at Phipps Health and Wellness uses anti-aging treatments to address various issues, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Excess weight
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Low libido
  • Musculoskeletal pain

You might also benefit from anti-aging treatment if you experience behavioral issues like depression or anxiety. Fortunately, a combination of healthy lifestyle changes and talk therapy can help you feel better.

What are some examples of anti-aging treatment?

Phipps Health and Wellness offers several types of anti-aging treatment, including:

Hormone therapy

Hormone therapy uses prescription hormones to restore your body to balance. It’s a safe and effective treatment option for low testosterone or post-menopausal symptoms. Phipps Health and Wellness provides hormone therapy with bioidentical hormones. Bioidentical hormones are similar to the ones your body produces, reducing the risk of side effects.

IV nutritional supplements

IV nutritional therapy is a type of anti-aging treatment that administers vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants directly into a vein. When the nutrients enter your bloodstream, they bypass your digestive system, allowing for greater uptake by your cells.

Medical marijuana

Medical marijuana uses cannabis-derived products, like oils, gummies, or tinctures, to relieve symptoms caused by underlying medical issues. At Phipps Health and Wellness, the team regularly prescribes medical marijuana to relieve various age-related conditions, like arthritis and glaucoma.

Cosmetic injectables

Cosmetic injectables, like Botox® and dermal fillers, help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. They provide an effective and minimally invasive alternative to traditional treatment options, like cosmetic surgery.

What type of anti-aging treatment might benefit me?

The type of anti-aging treatment that will most benefit you depends on various factors, including your age, health history, and goals. After a physical exam and a discussion of the issues you’d like to address, your provider develops a custom treatment plan.
