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 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
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 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 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 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 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!
Recovery & Performance
Semaglutide (GLP) + Vitamin B12
What is GLP?
GLP-1 is a hormone produced in the small intestine that stimulates insulin secretion and inhibits glucagon secretion, thereby lowering blood sugar. Studies show that GLP reduces appetite, improves control of eating, and reduces food cravings in addition to improving glycemic control.
Struggling to lose weight? Excess weight is largely a result of eating habits but with busy lifestyles, everyday stress and modern food supply; not to mention hormones and genetics, it can be a struggle.
Semaglutide delays gastric emptying by reducing glucagon secretion which reduces appetite, lowers sugar cravings and improves overall ability to control eating habits.
Benefits may include:
Feel full faster
Slower digestion through stomach
Better sleep patterns
Lowers leptin levels
Diminish hunger and cravings
Anecdotally, this peptide has been described by doctors as twice as effective as any prescription weight loss products on the market today.
Additional benefits of taking GLP + Vit. B12 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.

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.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration Therapy
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:
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.

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:
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:
Myofascial Pain Syndrome- chronic pain in tissues surrounding muscles
Corticosteroid joint injections can help relieve pain and inflammation in a specific area of your body.
Conditions commonly treated:
• Bursitis (eg. Shoulder- subacromial bursitis and Hip - trochanteric bursitis)
• Arthritis (eg. knee, ankle, hip)
