Anti-Aging

Anti-aging medicine is the study of different theories of aging and the use of vitamins and natural substances that help slow down the aging process. At Houston OB/GYN, we will work with patients to teach them about the importance of exercise, vitamins, and natural anti-oxidants that assist with preventing issues such as cancer, arthritis, and more.

During your consultation Dr. Lee will review life style changes that you should make, including increasing your exercise routine, and what important medications you should or should not be taking. If blood tests are needed, we will use them to detect high cholesterol, diabetes and the metal levels in your blood.

We also offer quality skin rejuvenation and skin care products to help keep you looking young and vibrant. Every procedure is safe and completed by our certified doctor.

PRP Injections (Face, hair growth, etc)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an anti-aging solution that uses a patient’s own blood as a method of stimulating healing and repairing tissues. During the procedure, we will draw blood, and this blood is then put into a centrifuge. The PRP is separated from the rest of the blood, and we then inject this into the scalp. There is no need for sedation, and the patient is able to drive home following the procedure.

The PRP contains cells that stimulate tissue growth and encourage healing. This treatment can be used to improve the appearance and youthfulness of the face, stimulate hair growth, and for other purposes.

Botox

Botox is used to fill in fine lines and wrinkles on the face. It is most commonly used to reduce the appearance of frown lines, which form in between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet, which develop around the eyes. Botox is a very widely used treatment that helps to temporarily relax the muscles that cause these lines and wrinkles through contractions.

PDO Threads

PDO Threads are used to reverse the signs of aging around the neck and jawline. PDO stands for Polydioxanone, which is a synthetic surgical suture that is safely absorbed by the body. PDO threads stimulate healing by encouraging collagen production. We can perform two different procedures with the PDO Threads.

The Smooth threads treatment involves creating a net with the sutures underneath the skin, using five sutures to create the shape of a net. This helps to tighten the skin as well as encourages collagen production.

The barbed threads treatment works more immediately. Five sutures are inserted in a net shape, but they have barbs on them that act as grips, allowing them to be pulled in either one or two directions.This repositions the skin. Collagen production is stimulated, creating a lifted appearance.

IV Therapy from Treatments of Cold & Fatigue

IV therapy can help to boost the immune system, restore your energy, and provide a healthy, youthful glow. We deliver a combination of important vitamins and minerals to the body intravenously. This is a good procedure for patients who are chronically fatigued, have a cold, or feel like they need a boost.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell therapy requires harvesting your body’s own mesenchymal stem cells and injecting them into the area you are looking to treat, which for most patients seeking anti-aging treatment, is the facial area. Stem cells are used to encourage the generation of healthy cells, which then repair and replace damaged cells and tissues that cause aging.
