Medical Skincare Evaluation
Our body undergoes quite a transformation throughout our lifetime. As we get older, it begins to show the signs of aging in the wrinkles and lines that are on our faces. In addition, we may see other problems with our skin during that time, such as sagging, which takes place when the skin begins to lose its elasticity. Even the color of our skin may begin to change with age spots and hyperpigmentation. Although this is considered to be a natural process, it is one that you do not need to take lying down. Our doctors at Optimal Health & Wellness can help you with some medical skincare and beauty treatments that will have you looking and feeling younger.
It is important for you to understand some of the science behind aging, as it will allow you to see why you may be experiencing some of your difficulties. The body holds on to key nutrients but it does so less effectively as you get older. In addition, we may be losing chemicals in the body, such as collagen which helps the skin to retain moisture and serve other key functions in the body. Even exposure to the elements and to toxins in the world around us can have an effect that will be noticeable as we get older. Our hormones can become imbalanced when we undergo stress, affecting our thyroid hormones, cortisol, and sex hormones such as testosterone, estrogen-progesterone.
Our consultation will evaluate potential nutritional deficiencies, hormone imbalances, lifestyle, and environmental exposures. We may recommend lab testing and other diagnostic tests to evaluate your condition to make optimal recommendations. Our treatment options include bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, Vitamin IV therapy of vitamin C and glutathione for skin whitening, nutritional therapies, PRP Facial Treatment, stem cell enhancing therapy, and customized skincare regimens.

What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP)?
Your blood contains life-giving fundamental protein growth factors, one of which is platelets. Platelets are the first responders in the healing process when your body is injured, they signal all the body’s growth factors to begin regeneration. Optimal Health & Wellness utilizes a leading-edge patented technology that concentrates platelets into biological nutrient-rich Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and applies it to your face, which activates the stem cells to rejuvenate your natural beauty throughout your skin from within. Since it is your own blood, there is virtually no risk of allergic reactions.
What are the benefits of PRP?
The benefits of your own PRP are endless; tissue repair, hair growth, cell growth, and collagen, just to name a few. When used on skin topically, with our unique procedures, PRP can tighten and increase skin firmness, erase wrinkles and fine lines, minimize pores, perfect complexion, and strengthen skin quality. Thus. giving you the result of a natural facelift, without the risk and complications of surgery.
How does PRP Facial Treatment work?
Blood is drawn from you, similar to having a lab test. Your blood is then placed into a centrifuge and spun at a fast speed to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood, which activates the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP is then infused with a secret blend of vitamins and amino acids. It is then placed into specific areas of your face by a combination of injection along with a microneedling procedure. After the medical procedure, your skin will be younger, firmer, and healthier day by day, as PRP activates your maximum anti-aging potential. Optimal Health & Wellness is one of the select few Medical Clinics in the United States experienced and qualified to offer PRP Facial Rejuvenation Pasadena Therapy.
What Makes Our PRP Facial Treatment Unique?
