The first step is simply contacting us for your initial laser skin rejuvenation consultation. We will discuss with you what is a realistic and achievable outcome, and what to expect from your laser treatment.

Homeopathic Facial Mesotherapy

As we age, our skin loses vital nutrients as a result of sun exposure, hormonal changes, poor diet and poor circulation. Homeopathic facial mesotherapy, also known as anti-aging mesotherapy, uses intra-dermal injections of a nutritive and moisturizing solution to improve brightness, skin hydration and tonus, and also smooth out superficial wrinkles. This technique delivers the required nutrients like those naturally found in the body – vitamins, amino acids, co-enzymes, collagen and antioxidants to particular areas of the skin. Concentration of these molecules in homeopathic medicines aims to rejuvenate the cells, making them more active, and thereby stimulating the production of collagen and elastin without the involvement of toxins. With this revolutionary face treatment you will experience: restoration of skin elasticity, improvement of skin tone, firming and tightening of the skin and a reduction of visible wrinkles. Integrative Medicine of New Jersey uses only safe, natural, and effective FDA approved homeopathic solutions from GUNA.

Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP™) – Stem Rejuvenation

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, also known as Stem Rejuvenation, involves injection of the patient’s own platelets and fibrin for the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles or scars in the face, hands, and neck. It is not invasive, takes about one hour for each treatment, and continues to show improvements for up to 18 months as stem cells continually work to rejuvenate the skin creating more collagen and a beautiful shine. Cost of the procedure is generally similar to that of fillers and may range from $900 to $1,200 per treatment.
Platelets play a role in stopping bleeding and in repairing damaged blood vessels and cells in the body. Platelets also contain substances called “growth factors” that activate and rejuvenate cells in our body. PRP uses the patient’s natural biology to address skin defects and volume loss, triggering production of new cells and collagen formation.

This cutting-edge rejuvenation is a quick one hour procedure. After 50ml of blood is drawn from the patient, it is spun down in a centrifuge for 6 minutes at a precalculated speed to retrieve the most viable fibrin and platelets. After centrifugation, the platelet and fibrin component of the blood (the top layer) is extracted and reinjected into the area of concern.
For those looking to delay the aging process, Stem Rejuvenation is a new facial rejuvenation procedure that promises to reverse the aging process and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines and blemishes.
Stem Rejuvenation is a natural product that utilizes regenerated cells and allows individuals to appear younger within a short period of time. The targeted Stem Rejuvenation audience is people who are looking for a younger rejuvenated look. The procedure can be done in your doctor’s office with minimal pain. The most common side effects include, but are not limited to, temporary injection site reactions such as redness, pain/tenderness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising and some patients experience headaches. These side effects usually don’t last past 48 hours.

Diagnostic Services:

Allergy Testing

In allergic people, an excess of a certain antibody called IgE is often produced. These IgE antibodies react and release inflammatory chemicals when they contact allergens (e.g. pollens, dust mites, mold spores, animal dander, foods, drugs, dyes) and then allergy symptoms are produced.

The measurement of IgE antibodies is the key to effective allergy diagnosis and treatment. The doctor may choose to test the patient using skin tests, a blood test, or both. In years past, the only method of testing for allergies was by scratching or injection a liquid extract of the suspected offending substance(s) into the skin and observing it for development of a welt. Now it is possible to use a blood test to measure a patient’s IgE antibodies to a wide variety of allergens. A small sample of blood can be analyzed in the laboratory for a safe and accurate diagnosis. Skin tests and the blood test are often used to confirm one another. Both tests provide the doctor with information to help her decide how your allergies should be treated. Each patient’s treatment is customized and tailored to the patient’s lifestyle.

ANSAR (Autonomic Nervous System Monitoring)

The autonomic nervous system (ANS) is the part of your nervous system which functions to sustain life by helping to control your heart, lungs, digestive system, blood pressure, immune system, certain reflexes, fluid balance, pupil diameter, sleep, sweating, hormones, kidney, and sexual function. There are two branches, or parts within your autonomic nervous system; the sympathetic branch and the parasympathetic branch. Generally, the sympathetic branch is more in control when you are stressed, nervous, or excited, while the parasympathetic branch is more in control when you are relaxing, sleeping, or recovering from an illness or injury. A balance between the two branches is essential for good health. Most illnesses and injuries can cause (or result from) an imbalance between these two branches.

Autonomic nervous system monitoring is a fast, non-invasive, and simple way to provide your doctor with information to help determine how healthy you are. Everyone from newborns to older adults can and should have their ANS monitored. ANS monitoring records your ECG and respiratory activity. Blood pressure readings are also taken. Your ECG and respiratory activity are analyzed by the ANS monitor to determine how your ANS is controlling your heart, lungs, and other vital organs of your body. Your doctor then interprets your Parasympathetic and Sympathetic (P&S) results produced by the ANS Monitor. Too much or too little P&S activity is not healthy. This information can help your doctor adjust your balance for better health.

Cardiac Health Screen – Holter Monitor

Holter monitoring (24h) refers to a 24-hour, continuous test to record your heart rate and rhythm. This device has electrodes and electrical leads exactly like a regular electrocardiogram. A patient wears the Holter monitor for 12 to 48 hours as they go about their normal daily routines. This testing is ordered when your doctor needs more information about the functioning of your heart than a routine electrocardiogram (EKG) can give her.

Why do people wear Holter monitors?

Regular electrocardiograms (ECGs or EKGs) let your doctor look at your heart’s activity at one point in time during your ECG test. But abnormal heart rhythms and cardiac symptoms may come and go. That’s why your doctor may want to evaluate your heartbeat over time while you go about your normal activities. You may be asked to wear a Holter monitor if you have fast, slow or irregular heartbeats called arrhythmias.

Wearing the monitor may tell your doctor:

  • If your medicines are working.
  • Why you have symptoms such as dizziness, faintness or the feeling that your heart is racing or skipping a beat.
  • If your heart is getting enough oxygen to meet its needs.

Micronutrient Testing

Vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to suppress the function of the immune system which can contribute to degenerative processes such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. You may be deficient in some vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and/or other essential micronutrients and not even know it.

Test results do not typically measure if the nutrient is properly functioning within the body. Our office uses testing that measures the function of selected vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other essential micronutrients within your white blood cells. Analysis can reveal a person’s functional nutrient status over a much longer time period than conventional serum testing. Get your micronutrient tests today. The test results provide the information needed to create your personalized supplementation and repletion program.

Neurotransmitter Testing

The following symptoms can be triggered by nervous system imbalances: low mood, anxiousness, fatigue, difficulty falling asleep, difficulty staying asleep, trouble focusing, poor memory, weight gain.

A simple urine test can identify which neurotransmitter(s) may be playing a role in your health concerns. Neurotransmitter test results are like neural fingerprints, each one is unique and provides your doctor with a wealth of information. Once your doctor knows which neurotransmitters are elevated and which are low, she can help you select the therapies, lifestyle adjustments, and nutritional support products you need to restore balance.
