April 2016

Flowers are budding, leaves are returning -- it's the season of renewal. Why not take this time to rejuvenate yourself? Many changes come with age, and many of them -- like loss of facial volume, hormonal changes, or simply feeling run down -- aren't welcome. This month, we're focusing on treatments and supplements that can help you look and feel refreshed.

Say Goodbye to Deep Wrinkles

Over time, loss of collagen and elasticity can cause deep wrinkles to form. Nasolabial folds -- the lines that can form between the corners of the nose and the mouth -- are often called "smile lines," but for many people they aren't something to smile about.

Rejuvé offers many injectable treatments, but we wanted to highlight the excellent results that you can get with Sculptra. Sculptra gradually replaces lost collagen using PLLA (poly-L-lactic acid). PLLA is used in medical procedures to safely encourage the body to generate new tissue, and with Sculptra, PLLA penetrates deep in the dermis to restore lost collagen. The new collagen creates a foundation that brings back fullness that has been lost, gently plumping and smoothing away both deep wrinkles and fine lines. 

One aspect of Sculptra that patients especially love is how subtle it is. Instead of an overly tight or plumped look, with each treatment volume continues to be restored around the injection site. Your appearance is continually refined over time, and the final results patients have achieved with Sculptra are impressive. Sculptra usually requires three treatments, but your results can last for more than two years. Now that's a reason to smile!

Every face is unique, and it takes both an artist's eye and a physician's knowledge to determine what treatment can best help you achieve your goals. If you'd like to find out if Sculptra is right for you, call Rejuvé at 408-740-5320 to schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Tang.
How Hormones Change Your Skin
When you think about hormones changing your skin, you probably think of teenagers' troubles with acne. But your hormones impact your skin as you age, too. In particular, estrogen plays a key role in your propensity to develop fine lines and deep wrinkles. It helps to maintain your skin's thickness, regulate fluids and moisture levels, and boost collagen production.

The decline in estrogen levels that comes with menopause contributes to many of the skin problems that we associate with aging. That reduction in estrogen is a factor in the volume loss, increased dryness ("crepey" skin), and lines and wrinkles that many women experience as they enter this stage of life.

That's why we recommend ReEst, a skincare solution that's formulated to combat the negative effects of declining estrogen. ReEst uses a cancer-protective "good estrogen" called estriol that improves your skin texture without altering the levels of estrogen in your body. It's also formulated with green tea antioxidants and the all-important hyaluronic acid, which helps to maintain moisture and encourage the formation of collagen. 

Changing hormone levels at menopause (and andropause) impact everything from your mood to your memory. If you want to better understand your hormone levels, Rejuvé can help. We offer hormone testing, bioidentical hormones, and other solutions that can help relieve symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances. Call Rejuvé at 408-740-5320 to make an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Tang.

Get the Most from Your Supplements
We often emphasize the importance of choosing the right supplements. You can have the best intentions of supporting your health, but a supplement that's improperly formulated and/or is insufficiently bioavailable doesn't actually do you any good. That's one reason why Dr. Tang recommends the supplements that Designs for Health has formulated using their "Evail" systems, which uses a proprietary blend of MCT oils, non-soy-derived lecithin, vitamin E, and other nutrients to improve the absorption and delivery of nutrients that are otherwise difficult for your body to process. Better bioavailability and absorption also means that your body is able to use the active ingredients more quickly, allowing you to get a better effect at a lower dosage. 

Berb-Evail contains 400 mg of the plant alkaloid berberine. This substance helps regulate blood sugar and support your gut health. It's antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-parasitic, and bactericidal, helping to maintain your gut flora. Berberine can also help with diabetes or prediabetes, elevated triglycerides, insulin resistance or hyperinsulinemia, non-alcoholic fatty liver, and PCOS that's linked to elevated insulin levels. 
Curcum-Evail is the only curcumin formula that produces tetrahydrocurcumin, a potent metabolite, in vivo. Tetrahydrocurcumin has potent antioxidant properties. Curcum-Evail contains a unique combination of three bioactive, health-promoting curcuminoids: curcumin, bisdemethoxy curcumin, and demethoxy curcumin, along with turmeric oil. These three curcuminoids are the strongest, most protective, and best understood components of the turmeric root. You can learn much more about curcumin, and the benefits of turmeric, on our blog.
