Feel & look your best as any age
Age happens. While there’s nothing we can do to literally turn back the clock, we can work to optimize your vitality, weight, and sense of well-being—as well as prevent disease—as you move through life. Medicine moves fast, and every day there are new techniques and treatments being perfected that are effective, safe, and non-invasive. Dr. Kate Kass makes it her highest priority to seek out training and certifications in breakthrough protocols. Be it chronic pain, wrinkles, or decreased energy and vitality, Dr. Kass can work with you to tailor a regenerative treatment program to your specific needs, so you don’t have to settle for anything less than your best self.
Hormones decline as we age. In your 40s and 50s, you might receive hormone replacement therapy but HGH, human growth hormone, is often overlooked. The decline in HGH contributes to the acceleration of the aging process—which includes changes in body composition, bone density, lipid metabolism, cardiovascular function, and physical performance.
Symptoms of low growth hormone can often mimic the symptoms of low testosterone or estrogen. If you have adult HGH deficiency, you could experience one or some of the following symptoms:
A higher level of body fat, especially around the waist
Anxiety and depression
Decreased sexual function and interest
Feelings of isolation
Greater sensitivity to heat and cold
Decreased muscle mass
Less strength and stamina
Reduced bone density
Abnormal changes in cholesterol composition
Not great, right? But the good news is that Dr. Kass offers a thorough protocol to optimize adult growth hormone levels. Testing and restoring adult growth hormone levels is an essential part of Dr. Kass’ comprehensive age management strategy, and has proven to be safe, affordable, and highly effective. ( Please note, we do not prescribe growth hormone but work with patients on other strategies for improving levels)
IV nutrient therapy
Dr. Kass offers a variety of customized IV nutrient infusions that target your specific condition, such as migraines, adrenal fatigue, depression, anxiety, or a sluggish metabolism. IV nutrient therapy is ideal for athletes, patients with compromised gut function, patients who are recovering from illness and need immune support, and anyone looking for an antioxidant boost for regenerative benefits. Dr. Kass offers many different IV nutrient therapy combinations, including:

The power of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Originally pioneered for professional athletes in the 1970s to help heal injuries, PRP is now used extensively for orthopedic treatments for regenerating ligaments, tendons, and joint injuries, and in orthopedic surgeries to improve surgical outcomes. PRP’s applications are wide-ranging, since it has the ability to regrow collagen, enrich fibrin, and aid in the formation of new blood vessels.
Here’s how it works: PRP is a concentrated preparation of your own growth factors extracted from your own blood. When injected into an area of concern, PRP stimulates a stem cell response for regeneration of the target tissue. In her practice, Dr. Kass has harnessed the power of PRP to treat many different longevity concerns. Using one of the leading PRP harvesting systems available, she draws a patient’s blood, and then runs the blood through a specialized centrifuge to concentrate the patient’s own platelets and growth factors. This concentrated growth factor “soup”—with all its amazing healing and restorative properties—is then injected into targeted areas for regeneration.
Hair regrowth through PRP therapy
Dr. Kass leverages PRP therapy to regrow hair by promoting stem cell regeneration and regrowth of weakened hair follicles. Her protocol combines PRP with ACell, an FDA-approved protein product. ACell provides an extracellular matrix as a kind of scaffolding for stem cells to latch onto and grow, increasing the treatment’s efficacy and reducing the formation of scar tissue. Injection treatments last 90 minutes and frequently provide results in just one visit. PRP is an effective option for women who are genetically predisposed to hair loss or thinning and men who experience male-pattern baldness.
In addition, Dr. Kass uses PRP therapy to treat other medical concerns ranging from sexual function to scar rejuvenation and damaged skin.
The Vampire Facial®
Dr. Kass is one of the few practitioners who is certified and trained in the protocols of the Vampire Facial, a highly sought-after treatment that harnesses PRP and concentrated growth factors to stimulate new collagen and improve skin tone and texture. You will continue to see improvements in your skin for 2–3 months and results will last for 1–2 years.
