Bioidentical Hormone Supplementation for Men and Women
Men and women experience the effects of aging differently, but both have similar symptoms when it comes to mid-life hormone imbalances. While women go through menopause, men go through a similar hormonal change called andropause. Though the onset of andropause can be more subtle, both menopause and andropause may cause irritability, lack of energy, poor sleep, depressed mood, hot flashes (in women), and abdominal obesity (more pronounced in men). Both men and women are likely to experience decreased sex drive, while men may develop some degree of erectile dysfunction (ED) and women may experience vaginal dryness and/or atrophy.
Are fillers and anti-aging aesthetics right for you?
From correcting deep facial folds to enhancing cheeks, chins, and lips, fillers can help you achieve the healthy, rested look you’ve always wanted. We only use the best, offering a variety of JUVÉDERM family fillers (VOLUMA, ULTRA XC, ULTRA PLUS XC, VOLBELLA, VOLLURE), Restylane family fillers (Defyne, Refyne, Silk, Lyft), and Sculptra Aesthetic. As always, it takes a professional consultation to decide what filler or combination of fillers is right for you.
Our goal is to help our patients look natural and rested, not “done.”
We assess each patient differently according to his or her age, volume loss, and skin texture. We also utilize fillers with a hyaluronic acid (HA) base, which are made with the same hyaluronic acid your body naturally produces. These types of fillers last 6 to 24 months and are completely dissolvable if need be.
Restylane Lyft and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA are deep fillers designed to create volume and lift tissue. Best use: temples, cheeks, chin, and lower jaw.
Restylane Defyne and Refyne, as well as JUVÉDERM ULTRA and ULTRA PLUS, are medium fillers used to help with deep folds and wrinkles, lip augmentation, and lip definition. Best use: pre-jowls, nasolabial folds, and lips.
Restylane Silk and JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA are thinner, gentle fillers used for smaller, superficial wrinkles and lips to help create a soft, more natural fill. Best use: forehead, eyes, and lips.
Restylane Kysse is a filler designed specifically for lip-fullness and to reduce lines above the mouth, while providing a natural feel and look. Best use: lips.
RADIESSE dermal filler encourages collagen generation and growth to smooth moderate-to-severe wrinkles. Best use: face and hands.
BELOTERO BALANCE dermal filler integrates with the skin’s tissue to smooth moderate-to-severe vertical lip lines. Best use: lips.
Botox, a common neuromodulator, works by temporarily relaxing muscle contractions, which then allows the skin to smooth over time. We use microneedles to deposit tiny amounts of Botox directly into the skin, resulting in smoothed wrinkles, improved volume, and smaller pore size. Botox takes between 4-7 days to relax the muscle treated and keeps it relaxed for approximately 3 months. While Botox is often used to treat the lines around the eyes (crows feet) or between the eyebrows (11s), it’s also used to treat underarm sweating, migraines, overactive bladder, neck/arm spasms, eyelid spasms, and more.
Dysport, just like Botox, is another common neuromodulator. It works by temporarily relaxing muscle contractions, which then allows the skin to smooth over time. We use microneedles to deposit tiny amounts of Dysport into the skin, resulting in smoothed wrinkles, improved volume, and smaller pore size. Dysport takes between 4-7 days to relax the muscle treated and keeps it relaxed for approximately 3 months. It is used to treat the lines around the eyes (crows feet) or between the eyebrows (11s). It can also be used to treat underarm sweating, migraines, overactive bladder, neck/arm spasms, eyelid spasms, and more.
As always, it takes a professional consultation to decide which filler or combination of fillers is right for you. Our patients often find our facials, laser treatments, chemical peels, and neuromodulators compliment their filler treatments nicely for anti-aging aesthetics.
Sculptra Aesthetic is the only non-HA (hyaluronic acid) filler placed directly under the skin to promote collagen development. This FDA-approved injectable subtly and gradually helps restore facial volume for anti-aging via collagen production.
What Our Patients Are Saying
Michael Flynn with Melamed Weight and Wellness saved my life. I have tried every diet possible but it wasn’t until I met Michael Flynn, a Lipidologist and Nutritional Specialist, that my life changed. So far, I’ve lost 65 pounds and counting. Michael has gotten me off my medications including Coumadin. My new Doctor has marveled at the progress I’ve made and continue to make. I have my life back and feel fabulous because of Michael Flynn.
Dr. Melamed, and Michael Flynn have been truly outstanding. I started seeing Michael about 3 months ago and in that time I have had a complete healthy transformation which I really did not think could be possible. The benefits I have achieved by following a very easy nutritional plan was amazing. I have worked out my entire life excessively and have never achieved the results like I have in the last few months. Great staff and one of the best life changing decisions I have ever made.
If you have visited your primary care doctor for things like feeling sluggish and not being able to lose weight, even though you are mindful of your diet and exercise, and have left the appointment frustrated with no new information in-hand, consider a consultation to discuss your concerns with Dr. Melamed.
For the first time, a doctor took the time to listen and see the full picture. Dr. Melamed’s approach is informative, supportive and solution-driven and helped me understand the connection between energy levels and diet and more. Whether you need a jump start to get back on track to feeling like yourself or a better understanding of how your current diet and routine might be sabotaging your efforts, Dr. Melamed is genuinely working with you to get you where you want to be.
Wonderful experience! I had filler put into my cheek bones and it looks great! I get so many compliments. She really took the time to talk to me about what I wanted and make it look so good. I highly recommend to anyone to go see her. Staff very nice and helpful too.
This place is top notch!! I worked with Jan and before anything she sat down, we had a whole conversation explaining everything and asking me about my concerns. She definitely took her time & wasn’t in a rush. Very professional great and experienced. The place is very clean and the medical atmosphere in which these things should be done in. Don’t go anywhere else. I will definitely be back for more.
