HGH Therapy for Women

Human growth hormone (HGH) can be used to help women who struggle with low levels of hormones. As women age, and particularly during menopause, hormonal production tends to decrease, which can result in mood swings, elevated risk of disease, increased aging, and other complications. With the help of hormone therapy, women can combat many of the negative menopausal symptoms, and keep their bodies youthful and healthy. During menopause, many women are at risk of developing HGH deficiency, which can be easily remedied through the use of synthetic HGH supplementation. Some of the symptoms that HGH hormone therapy can mitigate include:

    • Excessive weight gain and weight retention  

 

    • Brittle hair and nails  

 

    • Mood swings and depression  

 

    • Insomnia  

 

    • Osteoporosis  

 

    • Muscle depletion  

 

    • Physical fatigue or lack of concentration  

  Menopause is a difficult time for women, as it comes with its share of physical and psychological challenges. Fortunately, by receiving regular HGH injections, women can help to offset the negative symptoms of menopause, enabling them to lead a healthier and longer life.

Why You Should Be Getting B-12 Injections at MetroMD

B-12 Injections are becoming more and more common among health-conscious patients who may be too busy or unable to get proper nutrients in their day to day lives. B-12 is an essential vitamin according to a study done by Harvard stated;

“The human body needs vitamin B12 to make red blood cells, nerves, DNA, and carry out other functions. The average adult should get 2.4 micrograms a day. Like most vitamins, B12 cannot be made by the body. Instead, it must be gotten from food or supplements. Over the course of two months, a 62-year-old man developed numbness and a “pins and needles” sensation in his hands, had trouble walking, experienced severe joint pain, began turning yellow and became progressively short of breath. The cause was lack of vitamin B12 in his bloodstream”

At MetroMD we don’t just use any B-12 we use the highest grade available known as Methylcobalamin. This is a form of vitamin B12. It can be used to replace levels in patients who don’t have enough and may also be used to treat certain conditions such as neuropathy, ALS, and certain types of anemia.

B-12 injections are virtually painless and take less than 2 minutes. For more information check out our video below on B-12 injections. For B-12 injections there is no need to schedule an appointment, walk-ins are welcome! To purchase a package of B-12 injections give us a call at 323-285-5300.

Microneedling with Stem Cells!

Microneedling is a cosmetic facial treatment that involves the puncturing of the skin with tiny, sterile needles to trigger the skin’s healing process and the production of collagen. In addition to triggering the skin’s natural healing process, different topical components can be added afterward that address a variety of issues.

This treatment is great for healing scars, tightening skin, and creating collagen. When combined with serums such as Vitamin C or Stem Cells the results can be even more impressive. Vitamin C can reduce the severity of fine lines and wrinkles, help your skin retain moisture and brighten your skin. Since micro-needling allows products to better absorb, applying a serum immediately following treatment will be more effective and sink in deeper.

Stem cells have the ability to completely regenerate the skin. This a very attractive benefit to patients that want a treatment to improve the more severe signs of aging. While the skin is still fresh from micro-needling, stem-cells are applied to the skin as a topical treatment. The tiny “wounds” will soak up the stem-cells completely rather than attempting to soak into closed pores. Here is a video a stem cell micro-needling treatment.
