If you are seeing signs of aging or sun damage to you face we can help to improve upon your appearance and guide you to healthier and more youthful appearance. Where to begin?
Here are few general guidelines.
First ask yourself what concerns you the most about you face or your skin?
Do you have age spots, wrinkles, loose skin, volume loss, or pigment changes to your face or neck?
Any and all of the following treatment options may help to improve your appearance.
Botox simply relaxes the muscles in your face. Through repeated contraction of the face we form wrinkles. The wrinkle are predominately on the forehead, over the nasal bridge and around the outer portion of the eye. By relaxing the muscles that contract your face you will see wrinkles diminish over time. After administration of cosmetic paralytics a softening affect begins within a few days with the full effect within seven to ten days. The smoothing effect of Botox typically lasts three to four months.
As we age we lose volume in the face. Aging results in the loss of bone, fat and fluid in the face. The loss of these natural components that provided us with facial fullness result in thinner lips and increasing depth of folds from the nose to mouth and from the mouth the chin. The results from dermal fillers are immediate. Dermal fillers can improve appearance for several months. Dermal fillers simply replace lost facial volume that occur with aging.
Chemical Peels offer an economical and effective alternative to skin rejuvenating and skin tightening treatment options.
The ZO Essential Stimulator Peel is the perfect lunchtime peel for all skin types. It helps to brighten skin tone, soften fine lines, eliminate the dull appearance and smooth the texture of the skin.
The 3-Step Peel is a more aggressive exfoliation and epidermal stimulation. Potent antioxidants, retinol and anti-irritant agents penetrate the epidermis and upper dermis. Great for texture repair, pigmentation correction as well as anti-aging benefits.
Aging and weight gain can leave some people with unsightly fat under the chin that creates the appearance of a double chin. This submental fat can cause a person to be insecure, especially when it comes to taking photos or making public appearances. Many find this excess chin fat is unresponsive to diet and exercise and think their only option is surgery.
However, an individual can steer away from surgery and attain their goals by taking advantage of Kybella. This prescription medicine is injected below the chin to break down and absorb dietary fat. Because Kybella is a minimally invasive treatment for moderate to severe under-chin fat, it has become quite popular since its approval and introduction in early 2015.
Kybella Injections: How They Work
Kybella is the first injectable treatment that has been approved by the FDA to treat fat deposits under the chin, in the submental area. Most patients will require two to four sessions, depending on the size of the area and amount of fat. During each visit, we first cleanse your chin and neck area. A topical anesthetic can be applied if you desire. Then we make a series of very small injections of Kybella below your chin.
Benefits Of Kybella Treatment:
When Will I Be Able To See Results, And How Long Do They Last?
Typically, most people see visible improvements in the submental region after two to four sessions. The sessions are typically scheduled four to six weeks apart. You may be scheduled for as many as six sessions to help you reduce fat in the chin area.
Once the desired aesthetic outcome from Kybella treatment has been achieved, the need for Kybella re-treatment is not expected, as Kybella causes the lasting destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Side effects include bruising, induration, redness and numbness that can last for up to 4 weeks, and trouble swallowing. An uncommon side effect is temporary damage to the marginal mandibular nerve, causing an asymmetric smile that will resolve in days or weeks.
What Happens After My Treatment?
Most patients are able to return to work and social activities right after a treatment, and their normal exercise routines can go on uninterrupted.
How Do I Know If Kybella Is Right for Me?
If you have been struggling to rid yourself of excess chin fat, Kybella may be right for you. Both men and women are both affected by this condition which can be influenced by aging, genetics, and/or weight gain.

Injectable fillers are used to help restore volume in the skin. With age, your skin loses collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid by producing these substances at slower rates. Many dermal fillers feature natural ingredients to replenish the skin’s supply and restore a youthful look. Injectable fillers have also been used to correct acne scars, make thin lips fuller, and make the areas under the eyes less dark or puffy.
The most commonly used substance in injectable fillers is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found throughout your body, and it provides the skin elasticity, volume and hydration. Hyaluronic acid attracts water and gives your skin a hydrated, bold appearance. However, our body also produces an enzyme that breaks down the hyaluronic acid. We are constantly building hyaluronic acid and then breaking it down, which is why injectable fillers do not last forever.
Injectable fillers containing hyaluronic acid are injected into the thick part of the skin, called the dermis. This places the filler in a tight compartment and attracts water, making the skin fuller and more rigid. Think of the filler like the rebars that are added to concrete to maintain its strength and shape. Injectable fillers provide the skin with little beams of support to add firmness.
Types Of Injectable Fillers
Restylane and Juvéderm are safe and natural cosmetic dermal fillers that restore fullness and volume to the skin. The most commonly filled areas include the frown line, hollows of the eyes, lips, and nasolabial folds. Both Restylane and Juvéderm are composed of hyaluronic acid which is found naturally in the human body. You can expect results to last anywhere from 6-12 months. There may be mild swelling and bruising at the injection sites but makeup may be applied 4 hours after treatment.
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm XC happens to be the first and only non-surgical hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA-approved to instantly smooth moderate to severe wrinkles around your mouth and nose for up to one year with optimal treatment.
Juvéderm XC Treatment Areas
Juvéderm Voluma XC
It is not just about lines and wrinkles as you age. Your cheeks can lose volume and skin may begin to sag. Juvéderm Voluma XC is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21. It can provide you contour and a subtle lift for up to two years with optimal treatment.
Recovery And Results
For most patients, injectable fillers do not require any significant downtime. Results of injectable fillers are immediate and most patients can go back to resuming their normal activities right away. It is possible, however, that you may experience temporary tenderness, puffiness or slight bruising at the injection sites which can be treated with ice and disguised with makeup.
If you have had a hard time losing weight, you have likely tried other programs with little or no success. We understand how frustrating and disappointing the process can be. There are many different reasons why people want to lose weight. One reason could be that you want to feel better and look better, or maybe you want to improve your overall health or weight-related conditions and reduce your risk of illness. There is no faster or safer way to lose weight than under the supervision and guidance of a physician and a team of weight loss professionals.
Losing Weight Can Help:
Nutrition Counseling And Weight Loss Management Program
Most of us could benefit from a weight loss management program with a healthier diet outlining rules and goals that are realistic and achievable. A registered dietitian looks at your lifestyle to give you the guidelines, motivation and resources you need to make a healthy change.
Your Weight Loss Results
Every person will see a different journey toward their weight-loss goals. Some take time to get started, while others may lose weight quickly at first, then slow down. What is important is maintaining good habits over time for a weight loss that can be maintained. Healthy weight loss is about 1 to 2 pounds per week, but your nutrition counselor will help you find the right weight loss management program for you and help you adjust your plan over time to achieve best your results.
We will work with you to develop a plan that has the calories and nutrients you require to lose weight without feeling deprived. Starting a new diet plan may take some time to adjust, and you might have some unhealthy cravings, but you will not be hungry all day, every day.
While starting a new diet plan, you will learn new habits and a healthier lifestyle, which will make weight loss more likely to be long term. Highly restrictive diets and crash diets can produce results but are almost impossible to maintain over time. Once you have developed better eating and exercise habits, you can make them a part of your daily routine for better health throughout your life.
Often the downfall of a diet is being unable to stick to strict rules when it comes to eating, which can be especially hard for people who do not have a lot of time to cook meals or who eat most of their meals at restaurants. But we are here to keep you healthy long term, so you will get the foundation and tips that you will need to survive a dinner out with friends without breaking the calorie bank, plus simple ideas to help you eat healthier at home, every day.

The facial aging process has been studied for years and there is agreement on all fronts that the changes in skin quality, thickness and texture represent the biggest challenge to the profession. Although we can lift and remove skin or heat it and cool it, we have yet to find a way to affect its inherent quality. The discovery of PRP has provided new pathways and early answers to this biggest obstacle.
There are several similarities between the processes involved in wound healing and those necessary for regeneration of skin. When the skin is wounded, growth factors accumulate at the site of injury and interact synergistically to initiate and coordinate healing. The growth factors decrease tissue inflammation, stimulate collagen development, grow new blood vessels and elastin fibers, laydown the matrix that holds and thickens cells together, and stimulate hyaluronic acid production. These cellular processes have shown in clinical trials to be beneficial to enhancing and improving aging skin.
We are so impressed with the results we’ve seen with the PRP procedure that I have started to offer it in my practice. We now offer a PRP facial series that, combined with supportive topical products like Retrinex and our exclusive FACTORFIVE serum, will help to diminish fine lines and stimulate the rejuvenation of your skin from the inside to add to overall skin integrity, thickness, hydration and tightness.
In addition, we offer PRP for two other exciting new areas: for hair regrowth in male and female pattern baldness and the “O” shot, which helps increase blood flow to the vaginal area to improve sex drive, increase orgasms, and combat painful intercourse.
We’re excited to start offering one of the latest innovations in skin rejuvenation, Platelet Rich Plasma facials, in our Westport, CT offices. The PRP facial uses your own plasma to “wake up” the stem cells deep within the dermis, stimulating them to produce more collagen, repair the elastin fibers and increase blood flow. All of these actions make the skin appear more youthful.
One of the unique and exciting aspects of this treatment is that patients notice continued improvement in their skin for several months after receiving the treatment. That’s due to the fact that their own cells are producing more collagen and growing new cells! It really lasts and can continue to have positive effects on the skin as long as 18 months to two years. It’s one of the most natural ways to combat aging — in fact, the FDA has no regulations on PRP because it simply uses components from the patient’s own body.
We combine PRP with micro penning to ensure the platelet-rich plasma is infused deep into your skin tissues for maximum effect.
Hair loss is often thought of as a problem that mostly happens to older men but in reality it’s a problem that both men and women face and not just when they’re older. According to the Mayo Clinic, hair loss can result from a number of different factors including stress, hormonal imbalance, medications and genetics. Whatever the reason, the condition is troubling for both sexes and there have been few advancements beyond topical solutions like Rogaine and hair transplant surgery.
One of the more recent and promising methods to address hair loss in men and women is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) hair restoration, a non-surgical and completely natural approach that uses the patient’s own blood platelets to stimulate hair regrowth.
The in-office procedure is very simple: the patient’s blood is drawn and then processed in a centrifuge to extract all of red blood cells, leaving only the platelet-rich serum. This solution is then injected into the patient’s scalp after a numbing cream has been applied. Because the serum is rich in many different growth factors, it stimulates the hair follicles to grow. Schedule an in-office consultation today to see if this exciting new procedure is right for you.
The O-shot has been seen on the cover of Cosmopolitan Magazine, the O-Shot has been featured on the Oprah Winfrey show, and on The Doctors.
The O-shot was even part of the ultra-exclusive celebrity “goodie-bags,” given out at the 2014 and 2015 Academy Awards.
What is the O-Shot Exactly?
The “O” in the O-shot stands for “orgasm” shot. The orgasm shot improves your ability to achieve a more satisfying orgasm. The O-shot is also described as a “vaginal rejuvenation,” technique, because it returns the vagina to a more youthful look and feel.
The revolutionary O-shot does all of this by using your body’s own natural healing ability to improve, lubrication, arousal, and increase libido.
The O-shot uses the medically proven technique of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapy. PRP involves separating the healing or “growth factors” in your blood from the blood cells, and then re-injecting that super-charged plasma back into your body.
With O-Shot You Will:
You may even improve incontinence and urinary function!
The O-shot Procedure:
The O-shot help you to return to the best sex of your life!
Let our O-shot doctors help you look, feel and perform your best!
It is perfectly normal for your sex drive to decline slowly from its peak in your teens and twenties. Also, many factors other than age, from diet to stress, to sleep — all can affect your sex drive or libido. Plus, it’s hard to define exactly what a “low sex drive” is, because what one man considers “low” could be “normal” for another.
Of course, testosterone isn’t the only factor driving your desire to sex and ability to perform. But if your testosterone level is low, it can significantly impact your sex life. The manufacturing plant for testosterone is the testes.
As with any machine, as time goes on, the mechanism becomes less and less efficient. By the time you reach your 40s, testosterone levels start to fall by about 1% a year. For some men, the decrease in production has little effect. But for many men, as you hit your 50s, 60s and older, you may actually start to feel that drop off.
P-Shot – Regain Your Virility
We offer men of all ages a range of testosterone treatment options for improved libido. While there is an accepted “normal” range for testosterone levels, what is low for one man, may be “normal” for another. That is why any treatment plan we develop starts with your individual evaluation.
Then, following diagnostic testing and discussions with our physicians, we will develop a testosterone therapy plan designed to increase your libido and sexual performance tailored to your particular needs and lifestyle.
The Vampire Facelift is a unique therapy that involves the use of one’s own injectable blood-derived platelet growth factors, as well as either hyaluronic acid (HA) filler or calcium The goal of the procedure is to restore facial beauty and youthfulness. The Vampire Facelift procedure necessarily consists of an evaluation of the patient, the drawing and centrifugation of the patient’s blood, and the injection of an HA filler or the calcium chloride activated, patient-derived platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM).
The Vampire Facial is an option for patients that have not experienced extensive facial volume loss. It is essentially a re-surfacing of the exterior layer of the face.
The Vampire Facial involves micro needling of the facial dermis and the application of Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix to the face. The process of micro needling creates tiny punctures. When the PRFM is applied to the face it absorbed through the punctures and into the skin.
The Vampire Wing Lift® is yet another procedure we offer in MedTeam Pro office that utilizes Platelet Rich Plasma to enhance the fullness of women’s anatomy, specifically the labia majora, to lift and restore lost fullness to the area, addressing discomfort and enhancing physical appearance. Unfortunately, this area of women’s bodies ages just like any other area – and is greatly impacted by events such a major weight loss or vaginal childbirth, causing loose, deflated skin and decreasing sensitivity (in an area we’d all like to continue feeling young!).
This in-office procedure is performed virtually painlessly, using strong numbing cream and a lidocaine injection to ensure patients are very comfortable. As with all PRP procedures, blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge to separate the growth factors. The potent growth factors are then injected into the labia majora where they activate new blood vessels, collagen and tissue growth in the deep layers of the tissue over the next 1-2 months. The effects of the procedure (moist, fuller, more robust, youthful tissue) can last for two years or more!
While it may sound like something out of a horror movie, the Vampire Breast Lift® is far from it. It’s actually a unique and innovative way to add volume and a more youthful, plump look to your cleavage that doesn’t involve surgery, implants or even… fangs or a menacing Transylvanian!
If you suffer from “droopy” cleavage, diminished curves/fullness, wrinkly chest/cleavage skin, inverted nipples or decreased sensation in your breasts from aging, the Vampire Breast Lift® is made for you.
In this quick, in-office procedure, blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge to separate the growth factors from the blood. The potent growth factors are then injected into the breast and chest area where they activate new blood vessels, collagen and tissue growth in the deep layers of skin and soft tissue over the next 1-2 months. The effects of the procedure (younger, softer skin and thicker more voluminous tissue) can last for 2 years and more!
