The term “Anti-Aging” is becoming more and more prevalent. So many products, television shows, and advertisements endorsed by celebrities such as Suzanne Somers, has brought this new way of medicine into the mainstream. Anti-Aging Medicine is also known as Integrative Medicine, which combines conventional care with additional components such as supplementation and patient education on health and nutrition to improve patient care and overall health. Rather than practice just one type of medicine, Anti-Aging physicians and physician assistants will often combine different therapies and treatment approaches to ensure the best results for their patients.
Since life starts at a cellular level, it does as well in Anti-aging. Every cell in our body needs good nutrition in order to replicate, repair and fight off disease. Without vital nutrients in our daily diets and lifestyles we are unable to meet all the nutritional requirements needed by our bodies to properly function or heal after surgical procedures. In order to feed our bodies the adequate nutrients they need, the correct combination of supplements must be consumed along with a healthy diet.
So, how do you know what supplements to take? The answer lies in a simple test with fantastic results now being offered here at Take Shape Plastic Surgery called MicroNutrient Testing offered by SpectraCell Laboratories. This MicroNutrient testing analyzes 33 specific nutritional deficiencies. Why is this important? MicroNutrient Testing is a clinically effective diagnostic tool for the prevention and management of chronic disease conditions. There is overwhelming evidence confirming that nutrient deficiencies have been shown to suppress immune function contributing to the chronic disease process including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer's and even delayed wound healing. Because each person is different, this simple blood test can pinpoint each patient’s specific nutritional deficiencies on an individual basis. When you know where you are deficient, you know what you need to take and exactly how much, in order to get to optimal health. This takes out all of the guess work.
Once your results are in, you will be contacted for a follow-up and thorough discussion of your nutritional deficiencies and supplement recommendations. Once you have discussed with our physician assistant your results, you may purchase your supplements here for your convenience. Take Shape carries a top rated line of supplements through LifeExtension. Life Extension is a global authority on nutrition, health and wellness offering only the highest quality nutritional supplements including minerals, vitamins, herbs and hormones.

Tip of the Month
I am very excited to be involved in our new Anti-Aging Program! One of the most popular products as reported in New Beauty and voted “Product Choice Winner” is SkinMedica’s TNS Essential Serum. The product contains two anti-aging formulas combined by a dual pump that stimulate and activate once applied to the skin.
One formula is called APS Corrective Complex, which promotes the natural regenerative process to strengthen the skin, smooth skin texture, and brighten the overall look with high performance peptides.
The second formula is NOURICEL-MD Prescription, which has natural occurring growth factors, antioxidants, proteins and soluble collagen. NOURICEL-MD Prescription reduces fine lines, wrinkles and age spots while increasing elasticity of the skin.
There is an overall 97% patient satisfaction after using this product for just 10-12 weeks! This is Dr. Sassani’s favorite “Must Have” product for the last six months and I would have to agree!
