Women's Health

Before we get to our services for women, let’s talk about the elephant in the room: sex. When it comes to this topic, people tend to clam up. Here’s the thing: you aren’t going to tell us anything we haven’t heard before. After 20 years of listening to women talk about how it just doesn’t feel the same anymore, we know how to handle these conversations.

We’re empathetic, we care and we’re great listeners. The sooner we’re able to talk about these sensitive topics and discuss your intimacy the quicker we can rule out some things and address others. The days of “living with it” have come and gone. Today we’re able to treat most common sexual or urinary issues in a pain-free, non-surgical way. There’s simply never been a better time to “Get with the Program” and address whatever issues are not allowing you to live your best life.

Now, here’s what we offer:

Vampire Facelift

Despite the mysterious name, the cosmetic procedure itself is quite simple. A few vials of blood are drawn from the recipient’s arm, then spun in a centrifuge to separate the plasma and platelets from the red blood cells. The platelet-rich plasma is then applied to the face. See? Not scary at all!

The platelet rich plasma’s growth factors work to stimulate new collagen growth, often resulting in skin that appears tighter, smoother and younger! And because the patient’s own platelet rich plasma is used, there’s very little risk of a negative reaction.

Viveve

The Viveve™ procedure is commonly used to restore vaginal tissue, thereby improving tightness and reducing urinary incontinence symptoms. For women who are experiencing less vaginal lubrication, or a decrease in sexual sensation as a result of loose vaginal tissue, this can make a noticeable difference.

Viveve™ is also beloved for its ability to not just address the embarrassing and inconvenient involuntary leakage that occurs when sneezing, laughing, coughing or exercising, but for improving a woman’s self-esteem and helping her to feel more confident in her body.

O Shot

This simple procedure utilizes platelet rich plasma (PRP) to stimulate new tissue growth. Because a woman’s own PRP is used, the O-Shot boasts no side effects! The health benefits are numerous and a reinvigorated sex life is just one of them!

The O-Shot earned its name by increasing a woman’s intensity during orgasm, but it is also a natural approach to treating the following:

Decreased libido
Stress or urge urinary incontinence
Lichen sclerosus (White Spot disease)
Lichen planus (inflammatory condition)
Postpartum fecal incontinence
Chronic pain related to child birth trauma or mesh

BTL Emsella™ Chair

This unique technology revolutionizes the women’s intimate health and wellness category by providing those suffering from incontinence with a completely non-invasive option.

Hormone Replacement

Hormones affect nearly every aspect of a person’s emotional, physical, and psychological development. This can include everything from how well they sleep, how they deal with stress, how alert and awake they are, and how happy they are on a regular basis. The body relies on hormones for nearly every bodily function.

When your hormones are in a healthy balance, you look and feel your best; when your hormones levels fluctuate, they can have a number of adverse effects on your health and happiness.  Because of how closely your hormones are tied to your overall physical and emotional well-being, accurate hormone assessment is an absolutely essential part women’s age management plans.

Weight Loss

It takes a lot of courage to start a weight loss plan. It requires willpower and determination to stick with it. However, if you are like so many other women, you have hit the dreaded weight loss plateau. No matter how hard you work out or how well you eat, you don’t lose weight. Our medical team can then use your resting metabolic rate to determine the required amount of calories a person must consume per day as well as the ideal balance of caloric input and output in order for you to lose weight.

Stress & Fatigue

What’s happening? You’re always too fatigued to do, well, just about anything. Grouchy days are more frequent than happy days. Stress is creeping up where it never used to be. And fun…hey, remember when you used to be that? You’ve resigned yourself that this is what getting older feels like. But did you know it doesn’t have to be this way? These signs of stress and fatigue are not unusual, but can be reversed with hormone therapy. Balance can be restored to your normal body functions. Don’t wait. It’s never too late, or too early, to get back to a better place.

Brain Fog

Many women experience changes in focus, concentration and overall productivity with aging that may be secondary to hormonal or nutritional imbalances. Brain fog isn’t a medical condition itself, but rather a symptom of other medical conditions. It’s a type of cognitive dysfunction involving memory problems, lack of mental clarity, poor concentration and/or an inability to focus. Some people also describe it as mental fatigue. Depending on the severity of brain fog, it can interfere with work  and every day life. But it doesn’t have to be a permanent fixture in your life.

Aesthetics

At Better Life, we don’t just work to improve the health of our clients — we also strive to help them look a way that makes them feel confident and empowered. Because we know that wrinkles, fine lines and hair loss can be one of the most difficult parts of getting older, we’re proud to offer our patients aesthetic treatments.

Regenerative Therapy

Regenerative therapy is a game-changing area of medicine with the potential to fully heal damaged tissues and organs. Advances in developmental and cell biology, immunology, and other fields have unlocked new opportunities to refine existing regenerative therapies and develop novel ones. Regenerative medicine holds the promise of health care solutions that heal the body from within.

Precision Program

Stay sharp with our precision program. Precision Health Evaluation is designed to give you a complete and total picture of your current state of health.
