Rejuvenation Medicine Q & A

What is rejuvenation medicine?

Rejuvenation medicine is one of the anti-aging services available at Lakewood Ranch Health. Dr. Kao provides a variety of services to help you feel and look your best, partnering with you in the fight against the many changes that happen in your body as you get older.

With his rejuvenation medicine options, Dr. Kao customizes a care plan to meet your needs. He provides treatments that restore your body’s balance, improve your energy, reduce body fat, strengthen your immune system, and restore your youthful confidence. 

What rejuvenation medicine services are available?

The rejuvenation medicine services at Lakewood Ranch Health include hormone replacement therapy (HRT) as well as peptides and growth hormone therapy.

Hormone replacement therapy

Men and women experience a decrease in sex hormone production as they get older. An imbalance in these hormones causes many of the symptoms people associate with aging: low energy, weight gain, and loss of libido.

But there’s no need to suffer from these symptoms. At Lakewood Ranch Health, Dr. Kao offers HRT for men and women. After conducting a comprehensive exam and checking your hormone levels, he customizes your hormone replacement therapy treatment plan.

He offers HRT in many forms, including pills, injections, and topical creams. Dr. Kao also provides hormone pellet therapy using BiotTE®, which contains bioidentical hormones, a more natural form of hormone replacement therapy.

Peptides and human growth hormone (HGH) therapy

Peptides are short chains of amino acids that serve as the building blocks for neurotransmitters and hormones like the human growth hormone (HGH). Production of aminos acids and peptides declines as you get older, affecting production of these vital substances. 

At Lakewood Ranch Health, Dr. Kao offers peptides, supplying your body with the amino acids necessary to produce the substances your body needs to function at its best, like HGH.

Boosting production of HGH with peptides improves muscle mass, bone health, body fat, and energy.
