COMPREHENSIVE NATURAL HORMONE THERAPY

Available in All Locations

Making The Right Choice

When considering WHO will do your hormone replacement – you want a LEADER in the field. With that in mind, New Leaf Wellness has done over 30,000 hormone replacement treatments. Always ask the provider you are considering how many patients they have treated and what their training is for this type of treatment. Are you getting your hormones treated by a doctor who best treats colds and common illnesses, or one who specializes in how hormones interact with your body and has helped thousands of people just like you get better?

Hormones play an important role in the balance of our lives. The fact is, most adults begin significant loss of hormones after their early 20′s.

Childbirth, menopause, and time also alter women’s hormone levels. Over time, you begin to notice your body changing – sometimes severe changes can occur. Hot flashes, night sweats, depression, mood swings, decreased sex drive, low energy, lack of sleep and other symptoms are common with depleted hormones.

In some people, the depletion is so severe there is no measurable amount of hormones detected in their blood tests. Basically, they are empty.

Options for Treating Hormone Depletion
What do we do about it? Is there a way to re-start the engine that keeps our hormones balanced in our bodies? Unfortunately, there isn’t.

Our therapy is personally designed to restore and rebalance your hormones to the levels appropriate for your life and health; not just the levels for a mid-life or senior adult. Our hormones are derived from natural plants. This means they are not synthetic like Premarin which is made from conjugated horse urine.  We do not offer or use synthetic estradiol, progesterone or testosterone hormones in our therapy.

We always ask each patient to self-report their symptoms before and after each treatment to let us know how they are progressing.  You are unique – and your journey to better health must be your own!

We invite you to discuss your specific health issues and history with our qualified medical providers and get the answers you need to make an informed decision of what treatment may be right for you.

Take the Hormone Health Test for Women

No therapy will be prescribed unless clinical need exists and is determined based on lab work, physician medical provider consultation and a complete and current medical history. Beginning lab work and a physical exam does not guarantee a finding of medical necessity for any treatment. No testimonial on this website is intended nor should be construed as medical advice or diagnosis.

Hypothyroidism is a condition classified by an under-active thyroid gland—when the thyroid does not produce enough hormones. There are various treatments available, but the basic concept is the same—and it’s known as thyroid hormone replacement therapy.

To best understand the purpose of thyroid hormone replacement therapy, please visit with your Provider at New Leaf. They will help you to understand the interaction of T3 and T4—the two thyroid hormones.

SYMPTOMS

  • Constant Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Weight Gain and Fluid Retention
  • Dry, Brittle Hair and Nails
  • Dry, Itchy Skin
  • Muscle or Joint Pain/Stiffness
  • Constipation
  • Sensitivity to Cold
  • Slow Pulse
  • High Cholesterol
  • Increased Sensitivity to Medication

The Purpose of Thyroid Hormone Replacement Therapy
If you are prescribed a form of thyroid hormone replacement therapy, the goal is to compensate for the lack of hormone secreted by your thyroid gland. In most cases, you will take a daily dose of T3 and/or T4 in a pill taken orally.

But it’s important to understand that every patient’s therapy will be different. There’s no cookie-cutter dosage or treatment plan when it comes to thyroid hormone replacement therapy. How the body absorbs the hormones, along with the amount of hormones it needs, is so varied. As such, you should expect some degree of experimentation when it comes to finding the dosage and form of therapy that works best for you.

Thyroid hormone replacement therapy is a very individualized treatment process, and it is highly effective when prescribed properly. The goal of thyroid hormone replacement therapy, in most cases, is to normalize your thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) levels. You and your Provider at New Leaf will discuss what treatment option will best alleviate your hypothyroid symptoms, allowing you to live a healthy, normal life.

“The thyroid gland is a small, butterfly-shaped gland located in the base of the neck just below the Adam’s apple. Although relatively small, the thyroid gland influences the function of many of the body’s most important organs, including the heart, brain, liver, kidneys and skin.” – Dr. Robert Sieman

What Should I Expect?
Bioidentical Hormones are structurally the same as hormones produced naturally by your body. Your body’s receptors receive them the same as the hormones your body produced. Bioidentical Hormones, such as estradiol and testosterone, are manufactured in a compounding pharmacy which produces pellets in customized dosages.  Compounded medications are not regulated by and not approved by the FDA.  Compounding pharmacies are also not FDA regulated or approved.

Reaching your optimal hormone balance with natural hormone therapy takes time and experience and may not be fully optimized with the first treatment. Your hormones are tested periodically over the course of your treatment and our physicians and nursing staff listen carefully to your feedback to ensure that you are getting the best treatment plan we can provide you. During this process, any hormone imbalances that may occur can cause side effects. In some cases, these side effects may mimic the symptoms you were trying to get relief from or may be worse.

Our goal for you is to achieve balanced, optimized health.  This is a discussion that is best had between you and your medical provider.  Many clinics and manufacturers may make outlandish claims, but it is important for you to gather all the facts and make an informed decision.  This is a journey and a process – but we are here with you every step of the way and our medical training and experience will be put to work for your benefit.

Risks and Side Effects of Hormone Replacement Therapy
Knowledge about the safety and effectiveness of hormone therapy is rapidly changing. At New Leaf Wellness, we feel it is important you have information about the potential risks and benefits of hormone therapy before you undertake our bioidentical hormone therapy program.

Women
Synthetic Menopause Hormone Treatment (“MHT”), which is FDA approved, is often prescribed to women during peri-menopause (the time before and after your last period when symptoms occur) and menopause (the time of last period onward) for symptoms of hot flashes, vaginal dryness, loss of libido, depression, anxiety, irritability or PMS-like symptoms, bone loss and osteoporosis or its prevention, and cardiovascular disease. Since the Women’s Health Initiative study, it has been understood that synthetic hormone treatment may increase the risk of cancer, heart attacks, blood clotting or strokes.

New Leaf Wellness does NOT use or prescribe synthetic estradiol, progesterone or testosterone hormone treatments. Instead, our medical and wellness centers use only bioidentical hormone therapy to help our patients achieve ideal hormonal balance that improves their feeling of well-being.

Bioidentical Hormone Therapy involves use of compounded estradiol, progesterone and testosterone in customized dosages and combinations to meet the specific needs of each patient to achieve ideal hormone balance. We have observed side effects from Bioidentical Hormone Therapy including, but not limited to:   Hair growth, acne, lowering of voice, and breast tenderness or enlargement as their hormone levels adjust. As with any therapy, we use the experience of qualified medical professionals to help each patient get the best treatment and care available.

Goals
At New Leaf Wellness, we are committed to your health and well-being. Our goal is to balance your hormones using bioidentical hormones to reduce your symptoms. Assessment of medical processes can change, so it is important to discuss NHT with your doctor regularly. As scientific evidence increases, recommendations may change.

No testimonial on this website is intended nor should be construed as medical advice or diagnosis.

How is the therapy different from what my OB/GYN or other doctor offers?
Our Comprehensive Natural Hormone Therapy is a time-release pellet.  We prefer this method for a couple of reasons. First, you only need a treatment every 4 months or so. This way you don’t have to keep putting on smelly and oily creams or remembering painful injections. Get it and forget it! You get your treatment and get back to your life.

Secondly, with pellet therapy we seek a more consistent release of hormones unlike the highs and lows of instant injections or other methods which peak and valley from day to day or week to week. Balance is the key to life – and the key to happiness in hormone therapy.

What does “natural hormone therapy” mean?
It means that our hormones are derived from yam and soy plants. We do not offer or use synthetic hormones of any type in our treatments.

How much does it cost?

Our Natural Hormone Therapy is unique for each individual. Like most medical care, there is careful screening and history that must be considered for qualification into the program. Once accepted, our therapy generally runs less than 200.00 per month to maintain.

Is it covered by insurance? Do you file it for me?

This is a difficult question to answer, because we live in a day and age where each policy is different. After deductibles are met, we find that many of our patients receive reimbursement at some level from their insurance company. How much? It is literally different for each patient – even from the same insurance provider. We do issue each patient an insurance reimbursement form with all the information to apply for the reimbursement and we answer all requests for more information from your insurance company, if needed. We do not file insurance on your behalf, but we provide the form for you to easily submit.

spg-60-logo
Available in All Locations

New Leaf Wellness is excited to offer this new treatment for migraine sufferers. The SPG60 Migraine relief is designed to provide immediate – and lasting – relief** from migraines, headaches and other atypical facial pain.

To get a full understanding of the treatment, you really need to schedule a complimentary consultation to discuss your symptoms and determine if this is a good fit for you.

Who qualifies?

Adults (over 18) or minors with full parental consent with migraine, headache, or atypical facial pain. Typically any front or side head pain qualifies. This treatment is not effective for occipital neuralgia (pain associated with the back of the head or base of the neck).

How does it work?

The device is simply a delivery tool for a small (0.3cc) amount of Marcaine to be applied onto your SPG (Sphenopalatine Ganglion) in order to numb that nerve group and stop the signal of the pain from reaching the brain. The procedure is non-invasive and painless.

How fast does it work?

60 seconds or less is the typical time from when a patient reports relief.

How long does it last?
The key to the treatment is repetitive treatments for the first 4 weeks. Ideally, you will get 12 treatments in 4 weeks to begin. Following that, the ganglion is trained to not be as receptive to pain signals. Most patients return every 3-4 months following that treatment for follow ups.

How many? How often?
Depends on your need. It can be done safely as often as needed to continue the pain-free results. Some patients report relief for up to 6 months without returning.

Does it hurt? Are there needles?

The procedure is painless. It is non-invasive and does not involve any recovery time. It is surprising to most people how simple it truly is.

Is it covered by insurance?

Most major providers do cover this treatment. We will place the claim for you. If you wish to check to see what your coverage would be from us, use the following information: ICD-9 Code – 784.0, CPT Code – 64505 (times 2!), New Leaf Wellness is an out-of-network registered provider for most major carriers.

Is it FDA approved?
This device is FDA listed as a Class I exempt device (the same category as elastic bandages).
Is it narcotic?
No, nothing in this treatment is narcotic and it will not affect your ability to drive, work, or live normally.

When can I start?

Call your nearest New Leaf location to schedule your complimentary consultation.

ADVANCED WEIGHT LOSS THERAPY

Available in All Locations

Your personalized weight loss program will be customized based on your current weight, age, sex, and weight loss goals. You will be given a personalized diet plan and guided by the staff at New Leaf Wellness throughout your weight loss therapy.

  • Rapid weight loss (approximately 1/2 to greater than 1 pound per day)**
  • There is no limit to how long you can stay on this diet; however, the Providers at New Leaf recommend you pause, then re-start the program to get the maximum boost in metabolism.
  • Very low occurrence of rebound, no dependency, and a positive effect on your metabolism

As a New Leaf patient your Weight Loss program includes:

  • Physical Exam and Medical Evaluation by a Licensed Medical Provider
  • Nutritional and Diet Training
  • hCG Injectable Medication
  • Weekly appointments offering support, guidance and accountability on your weight loss journey

The goal of the weight loss IV is ultimately to assist in weight loss by reducing body fat. The weight loss IV consists of B vitamins, Carnitine, Glycine and three fat burners that make up what is known as MIC. The MIC, among other benefits, promotes the breakdown of fat by transporting dietary fats throughout the body to your cells so they are promptly burned for energy.

New Leaf’s Advanced Weight Loss Therapy combines a customized low calorie diet with specific medical dosing of human Chorionic Gonadotrop (hCG). hCG is a natural protein hormone found in trace amounts in every cell of the body in both men and women. It acts as a precursor to the production of hormones. Researchers have found that administering small doses of hCG appears to decrease body fat and sustain lean body mass while dieting.

As part of our Advanced Weight Loss Therapy, hCG is administered as an injectable. The tiny needles are basically painless and extremely easy to self administer. This is the only proven method to get hCG into the bloodstream. Your provider will walk you through the process and ensure that you are 100 percent comfortable when you begin the program.

hCG is available as a prescription medicine which is FDA approved for certain indications. Although weight loss is not one of those, it has been used for more than 50 years safely and effectively to aid in weight loss.

  • Personalized RAPID weight loss (as much as one pound per day)**
  • Reduces hunger pains**
  • Renews energy**
  • Improves mood**
  • Preserves muscle integrity**
  • Increases metabolism**
  • Stabilizes blood sugar levels**
  • Boosts men’s testosterone**
  • Controls women’s estrogen**
  • Instills healthier eating habits**
  • Used for over 50 years to assist in weight loss for both men and women
  • FDA approved for other indications

** Individual results vary and are affected by baseline metabolism, medical conditions, and compliance with program.

Available in All Locations

Maximize your Hormone Therapy, Advanced Weight Loss Program and overall health by increasing your vitamin and mineral intake with our Vitamin Cocktail A/B Injections!*

Vitamin Cocktail Injections May Help:

  • Increase Energy*
  • Lower Cholesterol*
  • Relieve Dizziness*
  • Improve Circulation*
  • Boost Heart Health*
  • Decrease Water Retention*
  • Lessen Stress*
  • Reduce Depression*
  • Improve Liver Health*
  • Diminish Cellulite*
  • Metabolize Fat*
  • Improve Digestive System*
  • Strengthen Immune System*
  • Enhance Central Nervous System*
  • …and so much more!

Why Injections vs Oral Supplements?

Vitamin injections allow your body to absorb 100% of the nutrients unlike oral supplements which at most yield only a 40% absorption.* Patients usually report a noticeable difference almost immediately due to the absorption and retention of the B vitamins, experiencing faster and more effective results.*

What is in the Vitamin Cocktail Injection?

VITAMIN B1 – THIAMINE
Thiamine helps the body’s cells convert carbohydrates into energy and is also essential for the functioning of the heart, muscles and nervous system.*

VITAMIN B2 – RIBOFLAVIN
This easily absorbed micronutrient plays a key role in energy metabolism, and is required for the metabolism of fats, ketone bodies, carbohydrates, and proteins.*

VITAMIN B3 – NIACINAMIDE
Niacinamide assists in the functioning of the digestive system, skin and nerves; it is also important for the conversion of food to energy.*

VITAMIN B6 – PYRIDOXINE
Pyridoxine is needed for more than 100 enzymes involved in protein metabolism and is also essential for red blood cell metabolism.* B6 helps the nervous and immune systems function efficiently and converts the amino acid tryptophan into niacin, vitamin B3.*

VITAMIN B12 – HYDROXOCOBALAMIN
As an energy booster, this is among the most important of all the B-complex vitamins.* It’s main functions are in the formation of red blood cells and the maintenance of a healthy nervous system.* B12 helps the body metabolize fats and carbohydrates, as well as promotes the growth of healthy blood cells, nerve cells and proteins in the body.*

M.I.C. – METHIONINE, INOSITOL AND CHOLINE

Methionine is one of the sulfur-containing amino acids. It acts as a lipotropic agent to prevent excess fat buildup in the liver and the body.* WARNING: Patients with a sulfa allergy should not take the regular 9A/B Therapy injection, but should take 9A/B Sulfa-free Therapy injection.

Inositol is a nutrient belonging to the B vitamin complex, is closely associated with Choline. It aids in the metabolism of fats, helps reduce blood cholesterol, and participates in the action of serotonin.*

Choline supports the health of the liver in its processing and excretion of chemical waste products with the body.* It is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol within the body, which is important for the healthy support of the endocrine, cardiovascular and hepatic system.*

L-CARNITINE
This naturally occurring amino acid plays a vital role in the metabolism of fat.* It functions as a transporter of fatty acids into the mitochondria, the metabolic furnace of the cell.*


*These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
9A/B Sulfa-free Thereapy injections do not contain methionine and are therefore sulfa-free.

Vitamin B12 – Hydroxocobalamin

Vitamin B12 is part of our Vitamin Cocktail but is also offered as a separate injection for those who need it. As an energy booster, this is among the most important of all the B-complex vitamins.* It’s main functions are in the formation of red blood cells and the maintenance of a healthy nervous system.* B12 helps the body metabolize fats and carbohydrates, as well as promotes the growth of healthy blood cells, nerve cells and proteins in the body.*

If you are deficient in Vitamin B12 you may be experiencing some or all of the follwoing symptoms:

  • Depression and Mood Disorders*
  • Fatigue*
  • Memory Failure*
  • Anemia*
  • Low Blood Pressure*
  • High Homocysteine Levels*

In addition to addressing a B12 deficiency, the shot may also boost your energy, improve your mood and drive your cognitive function.* Our B12 injection is Hydroxocobalamin – the same form as is found in our food. People who do not consume meat, fish or dairy products may have a B12 deficiency as these foods are a rich source of vitamin B12.*

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
These mild side effects may occur with a B12 injection: soreness at the injection site, itching, diarrhea and swelling. Serious side effects may include: muscle cramping, weakness or irregular heartbeat. Although rare, some very serious side effects my include chest pain, shortness of breath, slurred speech, sudden vision changes and weakness on one side of the body. Contact your health care provider immediately if you experience any of these reactions.


*These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

Benefits of proper Vitamin D levels:

FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING

Available in All Locations

Many years ago Titus Lucretius Carus, Roman poet and philosopher, expressed the basic concept for food sensitivity. He stated, “One man’s meat is another man’s poison.”

Optimal Wellness Through Customized Nutrition
New Leaf Wellness uses a scientifically and medically accepted method of measuring antibodies in the body called Enzyme Linked Immuno-Assay. This methodology is also used in many other aspects of medicine such as in the diagnosis of viruses, bacterial infections, and allergy testing. Food Sensitivity is related to the body’s natural immune response and production of a class of antibodies categorized as IgG antibodies. Much like in allergic reaction, in which the body produces IgE antibodies, there is an immune reaction that leads to inflammation. However, unlike a classical allergic reaction a food sensitivity inflammatory response is much delayed and can manifest itself in many different forms. Because of the high level of specificity that antibodies have, our test is able to recognize which IgG antibodies are being produced by the body due to a particular food you are eating and thus causing a food sensitivity.

BENEFITS OF SERMORELIN

Available in All Locations
You may want to know how you can benefit from using this therapy. Perhaps the easiest way to understand the potential benefits of hGh replacement therapy is to look at the symptoms of hGH decline and the effect hGH replacement has on those symptoms. These are detailed below:

  1. Changes in Body Composition
    Changes in body composition due to decreasing levels of hGH are reflected by a decrease in lean body mass (muscle) and an increase in fat mass. Correcting hGH levels has been shown to reverse this state by improving muscle mass and reducing fat.
  2. Bone Mineral Density
    Research indicates that hGH deficiency in adults contributes to a reduction in bone density and therefore increased risk of osteoporosis. It has also been shown that hGH replacement therapy for greater than 12 months results inimproved bone mineral density and hence, lower risk of osteoporosis.
  3. Muscle Strength
    Due to changes in body composition detailed above, muscle strength is understandably compromised. As hGH therapy corrects body composition and improves muscle mass, muscle strength also improves. The best results are gained after 12 months of hGH therapy.
  4. Joint Health
    By improving bone mineral density and increasing muscle mass and strength, hGH therapy can help to prevent joint deterioration that is a feature of arthritis. Optimal growth hormone levels are also essential for health of connective tissue such as the synovium found in joints.
  5. Exercise Performance
    Exercise performance is reduced in individuals with growth hormone deficiency. This appears to be partially due to reductions in bone density and muscle mass but also in part due to a reduction in oxygen uptake. hGH therapy for 6 months has been shown to improve exercise performance by improving muscle mass and also oxygen uptake.
  6. Heart Health
    There is evidence of a greater risk of heart disease in individuals with growth hormone deficiency and it has been hypothesized that this is due to a greater propensity to develop premature atherosclerosis (a build-up of plaque inside the arteries which increases risk of heart attack and stroke). Growth hormone deficiency also results in changes in heart size and function. These changes have been demonstrated to be reversed after 6 months hGH therapy.
  7. Metabolism
    Growth hormone deficiency results in a reduced resting metabolism and replacement therapy reverses this decrease. hGH therapy has also been shown to increase protein synthesis, increase fat oxidation, normalize carbohydrate metabolism and reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol. These favorable effects on metabolism may in part explain some of the other benefits of hGH including improved hearth health and body composition.
  8. Skin Thickness
    A reduction in skin thickness and all-important skin collagen is another result of growth hormone deficiency. Both conditions are improved by hGH therapy.
  9. Immune Function
    Although adults with growth hormone deficiency are not normally considered to have a compromised immune system, there is some evidence to suggest that hGH therapy can help regulate immune function.
  10. Libido
    It has been demonstrated that people with growth hormone deficiency have more difficulty with sexual relationships and reportedly, lower energy levels. Many individuals have found an improvement in energy, libido and sexual performance following hGH therapy, some men even claiming an improvement in problems with premature ejaculation.
  11. Quality of Life
    Reduced psychological well-being has been reported in individuals with growth hormone deficiency and hGH replacement has resulted in improvements in mood, energy and general feelings of well-being.

The safety and effectiveness of JUVÉDERM® injectable gel for the treatment of areas other than facial wrinkles and folds (such as lips) have not been established in controlled clinical studies. Patients who are using substances that can prolong bleeding, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, as with any injection, may experience increased bruising or bleeding at injection site. Patients should inform their physician before treatment if they are using these types of substances. As with all skin-injection procedures, there is a risk of infection. JUVÉDERM® should be used with caution in patients on immunosuppressive therapy, or therapy used to decrease the body’s immune response, as there may be an increased risk of infection. The safety of JUVÉDERM® in patients with a history of excessive scarring (eg, hypertrophic scarring and keloid formations) and pigmentation disorders has not been studied. If laser treatment, chemical peel, or any other procedure based on active dermal response is considered after treatment with JUVÉDERM® injectable gel, or if JUVÉDERM® is administered before the skin has healed completely after such a procedure, there is a possible risk of an inflammatory reaction at the treatment site.

The Eclipse MicroPen® uses automated Micro-Needling to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles.

BENEFITS

  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines
  • Improve acne scars, traumatic scars and stretchmarks
  • Improve the skin’s texture, tone and color
  • Create younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging
  • Minimal discomfort and downtime
  • Safe for most skin types
  • Yields natural-looking results

Course of Treatment
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated. Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the Eclipse MicroPen® setting used and the number of overlapping passes. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.

Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment.

Some patients only require a single treatment, once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars, you may need 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.

Individual results may vary.

Bothered by a double chin?

If you’re bothered by the fullness beneath your chin, you’re not alone.
According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 67% of people said they are bothered by the fat beneath their chin, or what your healthcare provider may refer to as “submental fullness associated with submental fat.”

What causes submental fullness?
Submental fullness due to fat beneath the chin can impact a broad range of both male and female adults. Some possible causes are:

Sometimes, even with diet or exercise, the unwanted fullness beneath your chin may not go away, and it could make you appear older or heavier than you actually are.

Fortunately, KYBELLA® can help.

How does KYBELLA® work?
When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Fat cleared from the treatment area is processed through your body’s natural metabolism.
Once the aesthetic response is achieved, further treatment is not expected.

KYBELLA® is given during an in-office visit. The injection process may take 15 to 20 minutes. Your healthcare provider will give you a series of injections into the fat under your chin at each treatment session.

Your healthcare provider will help you determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Up to 6 treatments may be administered, spaced no less than 1 month apart.*

For most patients, downtime occurred most commonly after the first treatment session. You should be able to resume your normal daily activities, but are likely to have swelling, so keep your social plans and work commitments in mind when scheduling your treatment.

Prior to your treatment session, your healthcare provider may apply ice/cold packs or topical and/or injectable local anesthesia to the treatment area to make you more comfortable. He or she may also suggest you take an over-the-counter pain reliever before your appointment. After treatment, apply ice or a cold pack to the
treatment area for 10 to 15 minutes, as needed.

*Fifty-nine percent of people treated with KYBELLA® in clinical studies received 6 treatments.

Satisfaction Revealed
In clinical studies, 79% of people treated with KYBELLA® had improved satisfaction with the appearance of the area beneath their chin (compared with 34% of people treated with placebo) 12 weeks after last treatment.

As part of a clinical development program, KYBELLA® has been evaluated in more than 20 clinical studies. More than 1600 people worldwide have been treated with KYBELLA®.

KYBELLA® patients reported improvement in the visual and emotional impact of submental fat when asked how happy, bothered, self-conscious, embarrassed, old, and overweight they felt
with respect to the amount of their submental fat after they received treatment.

KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin* by physically destroying fat cells.

Individual results may vary.


IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Who should not receive KYBELLA®?
You should not receive KYBELLA® if you have an infection in the treatment area. It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area or in children less than 18 years of age.

Before receiving KYBELLA®, tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you: Have had or plan to have surgery on your face, neck, or chin; have had cosmetic treatments on your face, neck, or chin; have had or have medical conditions in or near the neck area; have had or have trouble swallowing; have bleeding problems; are pregnant or plan to become pregnant (it is not known if KYBELLA® will harm your unborn baby); are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed (it is not known if KYBELLA® passes into your breast milk; talk to your healthcare provider about the best way to feed your baby if you receive KYBELLA®).

Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Especially tell your healthcare provider if you take a medicine that prevents the clotting of your blood (antiplatelet or anticoagulant medicine).

What are the possible side effects of KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® can cause serious side effects, including nerve injury in the jaw that can cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness (experienced by 4 out of 100 people in clinical studies) and trouble swallowing (experienced by 2 out of 100 people in clinical studies).

The most common side effects of KYBELLA® include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area.

These are not all of the possible side effects of KYBELLA®. Call your healthcare provider for medical advice about side effects.

Ellipse uses short, safe bursts of intense pulsed light (called I2PL technology by Ellipse, but often referred to as a laser) to remove unwanted hair from all body sites in minutes with results known to last well over 10 years.

How does Ellipse treatments work?
A thin layer of gel (similar to ultrasound gel) is applied to your skin before treatment, to ensure the maximum amount of light enters the skin. The Ellipse applicator is pressed against the skin and a carefully controlled pulse of visible light is released. Potenially harmful wavelengths and wavelengths that only heat up water in the skin are removed using patented Ellipse Dual Mode Filtering. The remaining light is absorbed by pigment (melanin) in your hair. Melanin converts the light into heat, which travels down the hair and heats the hair matrix, preventing future hair growth.

Can all hairs be treated?
Because the treatment relies on absorption of light by melanin, there needs to be melanin in the hair. This means that light blonde, red, grey or white hairs do not respond, and the most efficient treatment is seen with dark hair. Ellipse is able to treat all colours of skin, and has pre-programmed settings for different hair thicknesses and skin colours to match your exact needs.

How long does an Ellipse treatment take?
A large number of hairs can be targeted in one flash of light. Treatment of the upper lip takes approximately 5 minutes, whereas a back or both legs take 20-30 minutes.

How many Ellipse treatments do I need?
Every hair has a life cycle; it grows for a period of time, falls out, rests and then starts to grow again. Only hairs that are growing can be treated – so you need to repeat the treatment at intervals until all hair follicles have been treated while growing. The length and timing of the growth cycles are affected by numerous factors such as body site, hormone levels and age. Clinical studies have shown that typically 3-6 treatments are needed, and the intervals between treatments are typically 1-3 months.


How can I be sure Ellipse is safe and effective?
Clinical trials documenting Ellipse’s safety and effectiveness were carried out by leading doctors prior to the release of the product, and it has been in daily use for over 15 years, with – uniquely – a 10 year follow-up study showing long lasting results. You are welcome to view the scientific papers on the Ellipse website at www.ellipse.com.

Available ONLY in West Des Moines.

Ellipse systems use Intense Pulsed Light (I2PL) technology – a patented dual mode filter. Treatment with I²PL is more effective since it uses much less energy and does not require artificial cooling. The risk of side effects is also reduced. Ellipse is able to offer practically painfree skin therapy for sun-damaged skin, thread veins, rosacea, vasular lesions and acne.

Sun-damaged Skin

Our skin ages due to sun exposure and decreased production of collagen. Ellipse treatments of sun-damaged skin make your skin look smoother by removing age spots, other uneven pigmentation and diffusing redness. Your skin texture is also improved. Facial treatments are most popular, but all parts of the body can be treated.

Short, safe bursts of I2PL are directed at the skin. The system filters the light to ensure the wavelengths used are absorbed by haemoglobin in the fine blood vessels and melanin in the age spots. When cells containing a lot of melanin or haemoglobin are treated, the target heats up and is destroyed within a few thousandths of one second.


Thread Veins

You no longer have to worry about your facial thread veins. These thin vessels (called telangiectasias) around your nose or on your cheeks are small blood vessels near the surface of the skin.

Short, safe bursts of I2PL are directed at the skin. The system filters the light to ensure the wavelengths used are absorbed by haemoglobin in the blood in your problem vessels. The light is converted to heat, which destroys the protein in the wall of the thread vein, causing the veins to gradually, disappear after treatment. To ensure the best light transmission, a thin layer of gel (like that used in ultrasound examinations) is applied to your skin before treatment.


Rosacea

Rosacea can be irritating. Other people do not notice the diffuse redness on your face, or the small blood vessels (called telangiectasias) as much as you do. Your doctor has probably asked you to keep a diary to help identify what triggers make your rosacea worse, and Ellipse treatment can help to reduce the symptoms.

Short, safe bursts of I2PL are directed at the skin. The system filters the light to ensure the wavelengths used are absorbed by haemoglobin in the blood in your problem vessels. The light is converted to heat, which destroys the protein in the wall of the blood vessels, causing the vessels to gradually disappear after treatment. To ensure the best light transmission, a thin layer of gel (like that used in ultrasound examinations) is applied to your skin before treatment.


Acne

Our bodies produce a hormone called androgen, which simulates our sebaceous glands to produce an oily substance called sebum. An overproduction of sebum can block pores, trapping the oil. Skin bacteria (P. acnes) that feed on and break down sebum also become trapped, and the mixture of hair protein, sebum, and fatty acids produced by the bacteria irritate the walls of the hair follicle causing inflammation.

Ellipse treatment reduces the blood supply to the sebaceous gland, slowing down produc on of sebum. To do this, short, safe bursts of I2PL are directed at the skin. The system filters the light to ensure the wavelengths used are absorbed by haemoglobin in the fine blood vessels that supply the sebaceous glands.

It takes approximately 60 flashes to treat the full face. Including consultation and preparation, you should count on 20 minutes in the clinic. A typical course of therapy includes four treatments, three weeks apart.

 

The only seven day skin transformation system in the world.

Vi Peel is designed to be used three to four times a year to help reverse and prevent the signs of aging and sun damage. Vi Peel contains a synergistic blend of powerful and effective ingredients suitable for all skin types. People with anti-aging concerns, hyperpigmentation, melasma, acne, or mild to moderate rosacea are candidates for the VI Peel products.

BENEFITS

  • Improve the tone, texture and clarity of the skin.
  • Diminish the appearance of skin discolorations.
  • Reduce the appearance of pore size.
  • Soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Purify acneic skin conditions by reducing inflammation, post-inflammatory marks, bacteria and excessive build up.
  • Stimulate fibroblast activity, increasing collagen and elastin production for firmer skin.

Comfort and Convenience
The peel is virtually painless. Sensitive individuals may experience a light stinging sensation, which is controlled by use of a fan during application. Each treatment takes less than 20 minutes enabling the patient to return to normal daily activities immediately. No skin preparation products are needed. Healing time is also minimal – enjoy younger looking skin!

The Vi Peel Difference
Unlike other chemical peels, Vi Peel treatments are virtually painless, require no skin preconditioning and have minimal downtime. VI peels are suitable for exfoliating the face and body. They also have vitamins and minerals which nurture the skin at the same time as it is going through the exfoliation process. These peels are practical, affordable and give excellent results in as little as one week.

How Long Will I Peel?
In general, you receive the peel on day one and start peeling on or around day three. Every peel can be different, but in general you can expect peeling during days 3-7. Peeling may last additional days for some individuals. Body peeling tends to take a little longer for the peeling process to occur, and peeling can occur during days 3-10. It is recommended to use Aquaphor or coconut oil once the peeling has begun if you are extremely dry (starting day 3-4).

Individual results may vary.


IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
NEVER PULL BACK on the skin that is shedding. It is recommended to use a small cuticle scissor to trim the exfoliating skin. You can also go and wash the face to help gently remove the hanging skin. If washing the face multiple times a day, be sure to add moisture back to the skin by applying the Post Peel Protectant or coconut oil. You also MUST use the VI Derm SPF 50+ to protect the skin during and after the exfoliation process.

You need to refrain from activities that raise the body temperature significantly and can induce sweating for 72-96 hours (3-4 days). Inducing excessive perspiration/sweating may cause blistering or post inflammatory hyperpigmentation in the skin.

The VI Peel needs to be administered under the care of a licensed practitioner. Not having the education, understanding and experience of the application of the VI Peel can cause damage to the skin and lead to possible serious adverse events.

CONTRAINDICATIONS
Contraindications for the VI Peel include pregnancy or breastfeeding. DO NOT HAVE A VI PEEL while pregnant or breastfeeding.

There’s no gluten in any of our peels. However Celiac Disease is a an autoimmune disorder, which is a contraindication. Our post peel protectant has oat kernel and Avena Sativa Kernal which is gluten.

IV NUTRITIONAL THERAPY?

Available ONLY in West Des Moines

The average person is exposed to thousands of toxins in their lifetime, many of which, the body does not know how to break down. Even though our exposure to these substances is small, the buildup of toxins throughout the years is what makes us vulnerable to disease. Clinical studies have shown that these toxins may be the cause of many cancers and diseases in humans and animals.

IV Vitamin Therapy is a safe and natural method of infusing nutrients through the bloodstream to deliver effective doses of vitamins that are essential to the functioning of our body. Normally vitamins have very poor absorption when taken orally, so IV or intravenous therapy delivers higher blood levels without causing side effects.

At New Leaf Wellness, our Providers understand that there is a necessity to “detoxify” our bodies from toxins that have been building up for years and years. Our IV Vitamin Therapy program offers YOU the ability to detox in a safe and painless manner. IV Vitamin therapy will improve your performance, increase your energy, prevent premature aging and boost your immune system to be better prepared to fight diseases. All this results in improved blood flow, which in turn restores the ability of body to oxygenate tissue and cells.

With our IV therapy program, you can now chose to become healthier. The goal of IV Nutrition is to make you feel and look your best, starting from the inside out.

IV Vitamin Therapy is the perfect start to a healthier YOU.

The goal of the weight loss IV is ultimately to assist in weight loss by reducing body fat. The weight loss IV consists of B vitamins, Carnitine, Glycine and three fat burners that make up what is known as MIC. The MIC, among other benefits, promotes the breakdown of fat by transporting dietary fats throughout the body to your cells so they are promptly burned for energy.

Detoxification — It helps the body eliminate free radicals, chemical pollutants and bacterial toxins.

Increases Energy — It helps patients fight fatigue.

Antiviral and Antibacterial Agent — It is excellent to treat acute and chronic viral infections. Because it boosts the immune system, it helps control reactivated viral infections (for example, cold sores and shingles) too.

Immune Modulator — Restores balance to the immune system, making it more efficient and ready to fight recurrent infections, chronic fatigue, immune disorders and allergies.

Reduces Stress — It helps patients feel more energetic, happier, increases concentration and improves mood.

Healthier Skin — The increased circulation promotes healthier and glowing skin. It improves acne and other immune related disorders that target the skin.

Decreases Risk of Heart Disease — It helps reverse the inflammatory effect on arteries, which in turn decreases the formation of arteriosclerosis, which is one of the major risk factors for cardiovascular disease and stroke.

Glutathione Is The Protector And Detoxifier Of The Cell. 

Glutathione (GSH) is produced by every cell in your body. It is the primary protector and detoxifier of the cell. To understand its importance, consider that without Glutathione…

  • Every cell in your body would die prematurely.
  • The entire defense (immune) system of your body would surrender and cease to function.
  • Your liver, which cleanses all of the toxins you ingest or inhale could no longer cleanse any poison or toxin, as glutathione is responsible for detoxification.
  • Oxygen based life (human) would be impossible.

On his popular, television show, Dr. Oz called Glutathione, “The most powerful antioxidant you have never heard of.” He then asked Dr. David Katz, the Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center, why have most never, heard of Glutathione? In essence, Dr. Katz replied that most people hadn’t heard of Glutathione because it’s the antioxidant that is produced by the body itself.

Although Glutathione may be unknown to the general public, it is well known to medical scientists, chemists and molecular biologists. In fact there are twice as many scientific studies on Glutathione recorded in PubMed* as there are on vitamin C. Throughout the past two decades there have been tens of thousands of studies on Glutathione and its relevance to health and longevity.

It’s the critical key to the life, health, performance and longevity of every human cell…and that’s just the beginning!

It’s almost impossible to overstate the importance of Glutathione. It is the cell’s first line of defense against its most violent attackers, namely free radicals, chemical toxins, radiation and heavy metals. In fact it is your body’s first line of defense against the toxins that enter your body through the foods and liquids you consume.

The cells in your lungs use Glutathione to try to eliminate the air pollutants and countless other toxins you breathe before they are transported throughout your body. The liver cells use Glutathione as their purifier to detoxify your blood. Your eye and skin cells use Glutathione to protect themselves against radiation.

The continuous attacks on your cells, the invasion of toxins and heavy metals, and exposure to radiation and free radicals can lower our levels of Glutathione. Cells are damaged and lose their optimal function. The aging process (and all of its issues) accelerates. Energy levels fall, inflammation levels increase and all of the cells, tissues and organs pay the price. Glutathione levels are also depleted by any trauma encountered by the cells, including injuries, infections and diseases. Even stress, poor diet, lack of sleep and exercise can reduce Glutathione levels.

Studies have recognized an association between people who have higher Glutathione levels and those who…

  • Have Strengthened Immune Systems
  • Feel More Energetic
  • Recover Faster from Exercise
  • Claim Better Stamina and Endurance
  • Experience Greater Focus
  • Sleep Better

12 Amazing Facts About Glutathione

  1. It is the most abundant antioxidant manufactured by the human body. It is the master of sequestering free radicals.
  2. It is the only antioxidant that recycles itself after it has neutralized a free radical.
  3. It recycles ingested antioxidants including vitamin C, vitamin E as well as alpha lipoic acid after they have been utilized.
  4. It maintains healthy oxidant-reductant levels of the cells (cellular redox homeostasis).
  5. It reduces hemoglobin to a plus 2 state so it can accept oxygen and carry it to the cells.
  6. It helps support a healthy immune system.
  7. It protects the DNA in the nucleus of the cell.
  8. It protects the mitochondrial DNA of the cell.
  9. It reduces lipid peroxides formed by the oxidation of fats.
  10. It transports amino acids from outside of the cell into the cell, allowing protein biosynthesis to take place.
  11. It is the first line of protection against environmental and chemical toxins.
  12. It is a major sequestering agent of heavy metals.
