Look Young and Fresh with Botox

Women in their 50’s still want to look young and fresh that they use different beauty products just to erase those wrinkles and frown lines. Here at the Thin Centers, Dr. Anthony Capasso offers Botox in Jacksonville Beach to help women turn back the hands of time by relaxing wrinkle lines and frown lines. Botox is a very popular cosmetic filler that even celebrities have taken advantage of Botox treatments. Famous actresses who have claimed that they are Botox users include Nicole Kidman, Halle Berry, and Kim Kardashian.

Botox is effective in improving the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Crow’s feet around the eyes can be treated with Botox too. Skin that is aged and damaged will look fresh and young after Botox injections. Botox works by blocking nerve impulses to the muscles that are injected. As a result, the muscles cannot contract, allowing wrinkles to soften.

It is normal for women to have the desire to look good and feel good especially older women who want to reverse the signs of aging. Botox can take years off your face without going under the knife. It is a good alternative to a facelift as it is effective and does not have any downtime. Moreover, treatments are quick, making it perfect for people with busy schedules. Its effects can last up to 4 months.

A Quick Look on Reversing Aging Via Bioidentical Hormones

A woman’s life is interspersed with several changes — from the start of the menstrual cycle to  giving birth to menopause. Although the symptoms of menopause are often seen on a negative light such as hot flashes, night sweats and irritability, it should be noted that menopause itself is not a disease but a part of a cycle. Here at our practice, we have helped a lot of women cope with menopausal symptoms and reverse the effects of aging at the same time.

So What Exactly is the Goal of Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?

During menopause, your body tends to produce less of the hormones it used to supply in abundance, such as estrogen and progesterone. Apart from the common signs of menopause, reduced levels of these hormones may also make you suddenly appear older than you were before — from wrinkles to fine lines to sagging cheeks. This is where bioidentical hormone therapy can help!

The main goal of such replacement therapy is to provide your body with a sufficient supply of the deficient hormones that is molecularly identical to what your body used to produce. Consequently, you will notice that certain physical and physiological changes are positively restored after therapy.

Your Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

Each woman is unique — the dosing and frequency of each therapy is dependent of your current state of health and results of your laboratory blood tests. Hence the need for you to visit us for an initial consultation! In addition, if you’re a man and would want to reverse the effects of aging through bioidentical hormones, you are certainly welcome to visit us too! Call us at 904.694.0992 to schedule an initial consultation today. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Take Off Excess Weight with Low Glycemic Diet

Thin Centers offers different kinds of dietary plans to fit your different lifestyles primarily aimed to take off your excess weight. We even offer a low glucose diet or low glycemic diet in Jacksonville, FL.  The amount and type of carbohydrates you consume every day can affect your blood sugar.  Low glycemic diets can improve your blood glucose levels by changing the type of foods that you eat.

Choosing a low glycemic diet is a good choice for living a healthy life. All you need to do is identify those easy to access low glycemic foods and incorporate them in your daily diet.  Resources for a low glycemic diet are included below:

  • Fruits and vegetables – are high in water and good sources for fiber. They are a good to incorporate in your daily meals and snacks
  • Grains – choose low glycemic grains such as quinoa, rye, wild rice and barley
  • Whole wheat bread – look for the label packaging to check the fiber contents
  • Choose fresh produce fruits and vegetables

A low glycemic diet means low in sugar content.  Eating foods that are high in sugar can release insulin hormones into your body and can cause the fats and carbohydrates to be stored in your body which leads to obesity.

Thin Centers can help get your diet on the right track since our diet programs are based principally on a low glycemic index.  It is easy for us to easily identify those foods that are low in glycemic content, but a proper dietary plan is best provided by a medical weight loss program such as Thin Centers.

Bio-identical Hormones: Why Different from Synthetic?

Bio-identical hormones in Jacksonville, FL can relieve the symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances for both men and women.  Hormones are chemical substances naturally produced by the cells of our bodies.  These chemical substances play a very significant role in our body and an insufficiency could lead to hormonal imbalance.

There are hormonal changes in our body during our life stages that begin at our birth and continue until our adulthood.  As we age, it is common to experience some depletion in the body’s natural production of these needed hormones.  It is during this stage that it is very crucial to regulate or replace the needed hormones so the body can function normally.  That is why hormone replacement therapy came into play– to provide us relief in the symptoms of hormonal imbalance.

There are two types of hormones used in hormone replacement therapy: Synthetic hormones and Bio-identical hormones.  Bio-identical hormones are the type of hormones provided by Dr. Anthony Capasso of Thin Centers.  The reasons this type of hormone is more suitable than the synthetic hormones are listed below:

  • Naturally derived
  • Same molecular structures as our body hormones
  • No likelihood for cancers and heart disease

Bio-identical hormones can be easily recognized by our body because their chemical structure is very identical to the natural hormones that our body produces.  Synthetic hormones are commonly known to produce very unhealthy side effects since they are not identical to the hormones naturally produced in our body.

Call (904) 694-0992 to schedule a Hormone Evaluation with Dr. Capasso’s office at Thin Centers.

Stop Being Hormonal!

We often hear women blaming their irrational and sometimes inexplicable behaviour to hormones.  Believe it or not, hormones play a vital role in the functions of the human body systems and many unusual changes in your body can be attributed to the change in the hormone balance in your body.

For women, the symptoms associated with menopause such as hot flashes, difficulty sleeping, vaginal dryness, and mood changes occur even before menopause starts.  So women endure all of these symptoms longer than we think they would.  So guys, give these lovely women a break!  Aside from these symptoms, the decrease in the level of estrogen during menopause may result in significant bone loss that may lead to osteoporosis that makes the bone prone to breaking.

Our hormone balancing program will address all these symptoms brought about the change in the hormone levels in a woman’s body.  Estrogen Replacement Therapy is the key to minimizing the effects brought about by menopause and preventing bone loss and osteoporosis. Through the various hormone replacement treatments we have available we are also able to prevent other medical conditions that are associated with hormonal imbalance like heart disease and dementia. I have read a study saying that women who did not receive hormone replacements are more at risk for coronary heart disease, premature death, parkinsonism, anxiety, depression, and concerns on sexual function. Through hormone balancing, we improve our patient’s way of life and help them go through their prime years with ease and comfort.

Call us today at 904-694-0992 and schedule a consultation with Dr. Capasso to learn more about hormone balancing for women and how it can benefit you.

Raging Hormones!

Funny how boys deal with raging hormones when they become adolescents and yet again when they become older.  Sad news is, men’s testosterone is at its peak when men reach the age of 17 or 18 then it just goes downhill as they approach their 30s or 40s.

Like women going through menopause, men go through a medical condition when they reach the age of 40 to 50 and this is called andropause.  This is characterized by decrease in the testosterone level in a man’s body and can result in a decrease in the ability to function sexually, a decrease in the levels of red blood cells in the body, decrease in muscle bulk, as well as decrease in bone density.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy is a good solution in alleviating these symptoms and giving men back their vigour so that they can enjoy the prime of their lives to the fullest.  It’s more common to hear women getting hormone replacement treatments, but more and more, this procedure is becoming more popular among our male patients because of the numerous benefits.  Hormone balancing for men can make men leaner and can improve bone density.  Testosterone replacement therapy can also revive a man’s sexual interest and stimulation which can help in maintaining a healthy relationship with their partners.  It contributes to maintaining a healthy neurological structure, helps alleviate depression, and has been found to induce fat loss in some of our patients.

Call us today at 904-694-0992 and schedule a consultation with Dr. Capasso to learn more about hormone balancing for men and how it can benefit you.
