VITAMIN INJECTIONS

There is no comparison between vitamin injections and oral supplements. When you take an injection, it bypasses the digestive tract and often can enter the bloodstream in minutes without dilution. This allows for a much larger dose to be delivered to necessary areas of the body without interruption and without delay. Even taking a small dose via injection can have a significant boost in mineral levels compared to the same thing taken orally. This is why we offer specific injections as they are extremely effective, easy to take and are much more effective than oral supplements.


Biotin

Biotin is a B-complex vitamin, also known as B7 or Vitamin H. Biotin is necessary for the cell growth and the production of fatty acids in living organisms. Biotin converts fatty acids and glucose into fuel to produce energy. It helps to produce enzymes by metabolizing amino acids and carbohydrates. Biotin supplements may aid the body in: 

  • Healthy sweat glands

  • Nerve tissue and bone marrow

  • Stronger hair and nails

  • Prevention of hair loss

  • Increased metabolism

  • Faster weight loss

  • Improved blood glucose


Glutathione "master antioxidant"

Our  bodies  quintessential antioxidant  defense  is  the glutathione  system,  which  includes glutathione  itself,  along  with  the enzymes  and  other  proteins  that enable  glutathione  to  do  its  work. Glutathione  is  actually  a  very simple  molecule  -  our  body  makes it  from  three  amino  acids  cysteine,  glycine  and  glutamine. Levels  of  glutathione  have  been shown  to  diminish  with  age  as  well as  with  chronic  illness  and  poor health.  Functions  of  L-Glutathione include:          

  • Protects  cells  from  free  radical damage 

  • Improves  cellular  function 

  • Aids  in  recovery  process 

  • Acts  as  a  universal  toxin-binder


Lipovite 

Lipovite injections is a combination of methionine, inositol choline (MIC) and vitamin B12.  Each of these ingredients helps the body turn fat into energy and are also powerful antioxidants.

  • Methionine: Helps break down sugars & carbohydrates and convert to energy.

  • Inositol: Converts food to energy.

  • Choline: Healthy nerve cells, cuts muscle recovery time, helps convert fat to energy.


Vitamin B12

Vitamin B 12 injections help boost your metabolism, energy, help improve the health of your skin and may help you lose unwanted pounds. Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin needed to maintain good health. Vitamin B12 plays an important role in the normal functioning of your brain, nervous system and in the formation of red blood cells. Lack of B12 can cause you to feel tired, sluggish and serious deficiencies can lead to anemia.

​​

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant  that  plays an important role in the body.  This  high concentration  of Vitamin C  is  the ultimate  immune  system enhancer designed  to help  maintain  a healthy immune response.  High dose Vitamin C may help aid the body in: 

  • Supporting  various  cellular  functions  of both  the  innate  and  adaptive  immune  system 

  • Protecting the body's cells from damage 

  • Maintaining  the health of skin, teeth, bone,  cartilage,  and  blood  vessels 

  • Helping  improve  brain  function


Vitamin D

Vitamin  D  is  a  fat-soluble vitamin  that  is  necessary  for mineral  homeostasis  and proper  formation  of  bone.  The major  biological  function  of Vitamin  D  is  to  maintain normal  blood  levels  of  calcium and  phosphorus.   Health benefits of Vitamin D: 

  • Helps  fight  disease  / antioxidant 

  • Helps  both  bone  and  muscle strength 

  • Boosts  weight  loss​

 

HEALTHY IV NUTRITION THERAPY

IV nutrition therapy is the administration of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients directly into the bloodstream, making it a far more effective delivery method than oral supplementation, which relies on the gastrointestinal system for absorption. IV nutrition therapy bypasses the gut, so you can heal and feel better faster.  Oral ingested vitamins have only a 7-20% absorption rate and with dietary, lifestyle, and supplement support, many of these changes can happen, but on a much slower timeline. IV nutrition therapy allows your body to make changes immediately and dietary, lifestyle, and supplement support helps you maintain your optimal health. Four special blends have been proven to improve your health, your wellness, and your beauty!

  • Immunity

  • Inner Beauty

  • Myer’s Cocktail

  • Recovery & Performance

Doctor injects trigger points on the pat

TRIGGER POINT INJECTIONS

Trigger point injections (TPI) is a complimentary, minimally invasive pain procedure used to treat painful areas of muscles that contain trigger points, or knots of muscles that form when muscles do not relax causing muscle spasms and inflammation in one localized area. TPI can help provide pain relief in these areas. TPI can be used to treat a variety of conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system such as: neck pain, low back pain, Fibromyalgia and Myofascial Pain syndrome, etc. The goal of the treatment is to inactivate the trigger point, thereby reducing pain.

Conditions commonly treated with trigger point injections:

  • Muscle Spasms

  • Tension Headaches

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Myofascial Pain Syndrome- chronic pain in tissues surrounding muscles

 

Percutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (PENS)

PENS therapy does not destroy the affected nerves but makes them less sensitive to pain. Acupuncture-like needles that deliver a low electrical stimulus are inserted into the soft tissue, in close proximity to the nerve endings. The stimulation is intended to induce a pain-relieving effect by altering the state of the nerves.


Excellent for naturally easing muscle-spasms, reducing pain; allowing for greater range of movement and better overall physical functioning and quality of life.  This can be done alone or in conjunction with Trigger Point Injections (TPI).  

Conditions commonly treated with PENS:

  • Muscle Spasms

  • Tension Headaches

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Myofascial Pain Syndrome- chronic pain in tissues surrounding muscles

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration Therapy

Hair Loss

It can range from embarrassing – to traumatic.

You may ask yourself:

  • Am I actually losing my hair? How fast? How Much?

  • Do I have hair breakage or damage?

  • Which products should I use?

  • How will I know they’re working?

  • Can very early hair loss be detected before it’s visible?


Polaris Wellness & Aesthetics can help you strengthen and lengthen your locks – utilizing Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments.

PRP is showing impressive results for:

  • Those with thinning hair

  • Those with androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness)

  • Hair loss at the top of the scalp

  • Receding hairline particularly along the temples

  • Female pattern hair loss at all stages of hair loss

  • Male pattern baldness especially in the early stages of balding, or anytime there is a lot of miniaturized hair on the scalp

  • Metabolic causes like, iron deficiency and medication-induced hair loss

  • Hypertrichosis (fine/reduced hairs) of the eyebrows or beard


Benefits of PRP Hair Treatments include:

  • Natural treatment

  • Contains essential proteins that stimulate natural hair growth.

  • Causes miniaturized hair follicles to become healthier and larger, producing more robust hair growth

  • Loaded with growth factors that promote rapid angiogenesis and localized cell growth.

  • Has also regrown hair in alopecia areata, eyebrow hypertrichosis and other patient cases with non-hereditary hair loss.

  • Promotes blood vessel growth, cell replication, skin formation

  • Promotes blood vessel formation

  • Promotes cell growth and differentiation, blood vessel formation, collagen formation


What is the PRP Hair Restoration Treatment?

PRP hair restoration treatment uses platelet rich plasma technology sourced from the your own blood to stimulate the follicles and induce hair growth.​

  • The practitioner draws your blood from your arm (just like getting a blood test done).

  • Then, using a centrifuge, the practitioner isolates platelets from that blood (platelet-rich plasma or PRP) – all within about 10 minutes in the office.

  • Only the extracted PRP and growth factors will be used.

  • The role of PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate inactive or newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase.


How does it work?

The PRP is it regenerative technology that deploys aspects of your own biochemistry. The eight growth factors that are released from the platelets will instinctively know how to repair and strengthen the specific tissues where they reside.

  • Topical anesthetic cream is applied to the scalp to ensure the area is numb.

  • Once the syringes are ready, the PRP is injected into the scalp – primarily in the areas of concern.


Are there any dangerous side effects?

Since all of the constituents retrieved in PRP are exclusively from YOU, there is no risk of allergic reaction or intolerance ever reported in the literature in several thousand papers written on the subject. Mild soreness and redness of the scalp, if any, resolves in less than a day and improved hair growth can be measured in a matter of weeks.


How long is the treatment?

The comfortable, outpatient procedure takes less than one hour to perform and patients may resume all activities, including workouts, shampooing, etc. immediately afterwards as there is no recovery phase.

How long does it take to see results?

The optimum results can be seen at three months. At this stage it is decided whether a second treatment is required or not. PRP to treat hair loss has been championed by many surgeons quietly for the past few years, and studies underway are showing promising results that the procedure does stimulate the growth of new hair follicles.


Who is the PRP Hair Treatment NOT for?

Though PRP treatment yields great results for people suffering from hair loss, it’s not for everyone. People who have lost all hair cannot undergo this treatment as it does not help grow new hair on a bald patch. It can only make the existing thinning hair thicker by strengthening the hair follicles.

BIOTE BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY

As early as the age of 30, men will begin to experience a decline in testosterone, resulting in decreased libido, memory loss and loss of muscle mass. Women experience hormone imbalances such as elevated or decreased estrogen levels, which can result in hot flashes, decreased libido and mood swings.

The best way to improve these symptoms is through hormone therapy. 

WHAT ARE HORMONE PELLETS?

Pellets are made of bioidentical hormones and are about the size of a grain of rice. They are an alternative method of BHRT or Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. Most men and women need multiple pellets and some may need more than one type of hormone. They are surgically inserted into the hip area under the skin, where they slowly disperse the hormone over the period of 3-6 months. The surgery, performed by an experienced provider, takes about 15-20 minutes. A very small incision is made and seldom requires stitches. Most patients do not complain of pain although the area may become sensitive or sore. There is no down-time and our patients can return to work the same day. It is recommended that they avoid strenuous exercise for a few days afterwards.

WHAT IS BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY?

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a prescription alternative to conventional hormone replacement therapy. A bioidentical medications are made from plants and changed in a laboratory until they are identical to what your body would naturally produce. Thus under a microscope, they look the same as what the body creates. BHRT is customized for each individual and their personal needs, adjusting dosages, strengths, and forms of hormones. Traditional hormone replacement therapy is not as flexible and has few options for dosages and strengths. The bioidentical hormones offered in pellet form are estrogen, progesterone and testosterone.


WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BHRT?

BHRT has countless benefits for both men and women. Most notice an improvement within a few weeks of having the pellets inserted. Women who have hormonal imbalances often suffer from fatigue, low libido, headaches, difficult sleeping, irregular periods, depression, anxiety, thinning hair and more. The benefits are increased energy and libido, better sleeping habits, healthier skin and hair, improved regularity with moods. For women, the benefits of hormone pellets typically last about 3-4 months before needing more.

For men, the biggest complaints are low muscle tone, low motivation, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, irritability and more. The benefits are substantial as men state that they are able to increase muscle tone, improve moods and sexual functions, increase energy, libido, stamina and more. Men often see the benefits of pellets last 4-6 months before needing more.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) for men and women is a healthy option for achieving natural, normal hormone balance, while reducing unpleasant hormonal imbalance symptoms. Unlike synthetic hormones, the molecular structure of the bioidentical hormones-testosterone and/or estrogen is human identical.  Since they are derived from nature, plant-based hormones metabolize in the body, just the way nature intended.

SEMAGLUTIDE WEIGHT LOSS

Advancements in weight loss are hard to recognize with all the hyped products and fad diets. In fact, it is very easy for a celebrity endorsed weight loss fad to overshadow an actual, fact-based, real world medical weight loss aid. But occasionally, we find something that is backed by research, the FDA or is a method that has worked for tens of thousands of patients. Semaglutide is the latest arrival in a successful weight loss aid, which does not require any special diet or sacrifice to see results.

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide receptor antagonist which basically improves glycemic control in the pancreas. Semaglutide will delay gastric emptying by reducing glucagon secretion which reduces appetite, lowers sugar cravings and improves overall ability to control eating habits.


The New England Journal of Medicine conducted a study of over 1900 adults to identify if Semaglutide would actually help in weight loss, and by how much. The participants lost an average of 14.9% in body weight, without a special diet, without an exercise routine, and without additional medication. These results show that without much effort, taking Semaglutide one time per week can have favorable results for just about anyone. Additional benefits of taking Semaglutide weekly was also shown to improve cardiometabolic health, which includes a reduction in insulin resistance and a reduction in metabolic disorder and less risk for cardiovascular disease.

Semaglutide is FDA approved for Type 2 diabetes, weight management and is being used to help the disease’s growth and progression. Although Semaglutide is not a “lose a pound a day” weight loss miracle as we see daily on advertisements, it is a safe and proven method to losing weight and improving our metabolic health.


Semaglutide has been found to be just as effective as most other weight loss medications, if not more. Semaglutide is recommended to those that want to lose weight, and improve their heart health.
