Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy

Hormone replacement therapy is one of the newest and most advanced methods for managing hormone loss due to menopause (in women) or other conditions, in which the body isn’t producing enough hormones. Both men and women can benefit from bio-identical hormone replacement therapy if they’re lacking essential hormones. Hormone pellet therapy leverages bio-identical hormones that closely match your body’s own hormones.

Contact Ritz Med Spa for more information about bio-identical hormone therapy.

It’s natural for your hormone levels to decrease over the years. In women, the decrease is most dramatic with the onset of menopause. It’s common for both men and women to experience lower hormone levels as they enter adulthood, middle age, and senior years. Hormone depletion can cause unpleasant symptoms that affect the entire body. Belmar hormone pellet therapy can correct hormone depletion in the most natural and healthy way possible.

There is a wide range of symptoms caused by hormone depletion, including:

  • Depression
  • Erratic moods
  • Chronic exhaustion
  • Restless sleep
  • Decrease in libido
  • Memory problems
  • A feeling of “brain fog”
  • Weight gain
  • Hot flashes (in women)
  • Night sweats (in women)

Hormone imbalance is especially difficult to manage because it’s common to have several symptoms—or even all of these symptoms at the same time.

During your appointment, your provider prepares a small area—usually on the fatty part of the buttock— for pellet insertion. The hormone pellets are injected quickly, and this process causes little to no discomfort. The entire hormone injection process takes only minutes. Most clients notice an improvement in their symptoms right away, and they continue to improve over time. We recommend that you return every three to four months for a new hormone replacement therapy procedure.

Hair Graft

If you’re living with hair loss, it can affect your self-esteem and make you unhappy with your appearance. Hair loss treatment is a highly effective way to get back the hair that time, stress, and other factors may have taken away from you. At Ritz Med Spa, we offer hair grafting for patients who are looking for a fresh start with a new head of hair.

Contact Ritz Med Spa for more information about our hair loss treatment options.

Our hair transplant system uses follicular unit extraction. This automated hair loss treatment allows for superior precision during transplants. The hair implants treatment uses your own healthy hair follicles, taken from a donor area where hair grows well, to replace the follicles that are no longer producing hair. Whether your hair loss is genetic, age related, or has another cause, we can help.

If you’re seeking a natural looking hair restoration solution, you may be very pleased with hair grafting. Older hair transplant systems left scarring on the scalp, which could mean you’d have telltale signs of the hair transplanting for months afterward. Our technique leaves no scars and gives you a natural result.

Another big advantage of our hair loss treatment is that it causes very little pain, especially when compared to other hair implant techniques. Anesthetic is used to keep you comfortable during the hair transplant, but because this treatment requires no incisions, you’ll heal faster and experience much less pain.

First, you’ll receive a local anesthetic in the treatment area.

Once the treatment area is properly numbed, individual hair follicles are taken out of the donor area (an area like the back of the head). Because every follicle contains three or more individual hairs, only a small quantity of follicles is targeted. For large bald areas, more follicles must be transplanted.

Once removed, the hair follicles are placed, one at a time, into the treatment area. Because the transplanted hair follicles are your very own healthy follicles, they’ll match the surrounding hair well and will be healthy and hardy.

The cost of hair implants varies widely, as each patient’s hair loss is different. The price is calculated based on the number of hair grafts that are needed. In general, minor hair loss in a small area is much less costly than total hair replacement in a large bald area. Contact Ritz Med Spa to schedule a consultation and get an estimate.

PRP Scalp Injections

PRP Scalp injections uses PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), that is harvested from your own blood and spun in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells and the plasma, to improve thinning hair. The plasma is rich in growth factors, and this is what is then injected into your scalp. These growth factors stimulate hair growth.

Contact Ritz Med Spa to find out how scalp injections can help you improve the appearance of thinning hair.

We typically recommend that clients come in once each month for three months for maintenance treatments, as needed.

Botox and Dermal Fillers for Men

Botox and dermal fillers are used to rejuvenate the face where wrinkles and fine lines appear. Dermal fillers can also be used to augment, or enhance, features of the face for a desired look.

There are a variety of fillers available to you, including lip fillers, depending on what area of the face is being treated and the amount of correction needed. Our Master Injector, Naunie Maddox, who is a former injector trainer, has over a decade of experience, and she has the unique ability to use Botox and dermal fillers in our Franklin, TN, office with advanced techniques.

Botox
Ritz Med Spa offers Botox in our Franklin, TN, office. Botox is an injectable formula that’s used to relax and target wrinkles. Botox temporarily relaxes muscles in the face that cause wrinkles, which means that you’ll stop creating new lines and reinforcing established ones. Botox is FDA approved for the treatment of moderate to severe frown lines (between your brows), crow’s feet, and forehead lines in adults.
Botox lasts for between three and four months in most patients.
Dermal fillers are injectable formulas that add volume to the face. They’re often used to correct deep facial wrinkles or facial folds caused by volume loss due to age, like the nasolabial folds (parenthesis lines on the sides of the nose and mouth). Dermal fillers can also be used to add volume in areas to augment or enhance a feature. For example, many patients opt for dermal lip fillers to achieve a fuller, poutier look.
It depends on the dermal filler. Most dermal fillers last for anywhere from six months to a year. It also depends on where the filler is placed and how your body metabolizes the filler. Certain fillers, like Juvederm® Voluma, can last for as long as two years, and Bellafill is FDA approved to last five years. Ritz Med Spa offers a variety of dermal fillers, and we are happy to recommend the option that will meet your beauty goals.
Yes. You can have Botox and fillers together, and they can be done in the same appointment, if desired. Botox is best suited for correction of the fine lines and wrinkles that occur due to muscle movement, and dermal fillers are best suited for correction of wrinkles that occur due to volume loss. Each product has its own unique use, but when used in combination, they allow for all types of wrinkles and lines to be corrected.
With Botox, results can be seen anywhere from several days to a week. Dermal fillers take effect immediately, and you’ll see results before you even leave the Ritz Med Spa office.

Each person reacts differently, but there may be some swelling, that will subside. Because these treatments can take several visits to perfect your look, we do not recommend having these treatments performed too close to a special event, especially if you have not used Botox or dermal fillers in the past.

Liquivida Vitamin Infusions and NAD Peptide Therapy

IV vitamin therapy is a treatment where a saline solution filled with various vitamins, minerals, and amino acids are delivered intravenously. Clients can come in for just an IV treatment, or in most cases, they can combine it with other treatments. Ritz Med Spa offers several vitamin infusions, such as, a super multi-vitamin, hangover IV cure, and NAD therapy infusion, which is the powerhouse of IV vitamin therapy.

Contact Ritz Med Spa for more information on our vitamin infusions and hangover IVs in Franklin, TN.

NAD—or Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide—is a coenzyme of niacin, or vitamin B3. Because NAD is involved in so many body functions and offers a wide variety of benefits, restoring NAD through NAD infusion therapy can help many people, especially those who are wanting to:

  • Reduce fatigue and boost energy level
  • Slow the aging process
  • Restore the appearance of the skin and reduce wrinkles
  • Improve brain health, mental clarity, and neurological function
  • Improve autoimmune function
  • Improve depression, anxiety, and stress
  • Reduce cravings and treat addictions (alcohol, nicotine, opioids)
  • Improve overall health

The number of treatments needed varies by individual. Our team will make a recommendation based on your individual health needs. Like with exercise or any vitamin, it’s a long-term investment in your health that should be done regularly. Before you can begin any treatment, a nurse will evaluate your health history to ensure you a candidate for the treatment. Then, we will make the recommendation of what treatment or combination of treatments will be best for you.

Peptides are short chain amino acids that create the chemical signals that allow our bodies to function at peak performance. Peptides can enhance cellular regeneration, increase metabolism, increase libido, promote fat burning, improve energy level and memory, and slow the aging process.

Peptide therapy is delivered subcutaneously like an insulin injection with a tiny needle at bedtime. Patients are taught to give themselves the peptide injections. Peptides are given in a cycle of on and off days over a period of weeks and months.

Erectile Dysfunction Treatments and Male Enhancements

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to get or keep an erection. Men may experience this occasionally, but when it is a persistent problem, it can cause a lot of stress and lack of self-confidence. ED could be a result of or combination of physical or psychological factors. Your doctor will rule out any potential health concerns as the cause. After a consultation with Dr. Gilmer, he may decide Viagra is a suitable erectile dysfunction treatment for you.

To learn more about ED treatments and our other male enhancements, contact Ritz Med Spa.

The Pow-Shot is a non-invasive male enhancement treatment used to improve a man’s erections. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is harvested from your own blood and spun in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells and the plasma. The plasma is rich in growth factors, that will stimulate tissue growth, which will result in larger and firmer erections.
Most men need one to two treatments, a few months apart, to see results.
There is no downtime with the Pow-shot male enlargement. You can resume your normal activities right after the appointment.
Numbing cream is applied to the area prior to the injections to minimize pain.

Manduu® EMS Workout

Manduu® EMS workouts use electrical stimulation of the muscles to help you get the maximum workout results you desire. These electrical muscle stimulation exercises are ultra-low impact, and the results are measured. Our clients say that Manduu® is 15 minutes that can change your life.

The Manduu® team is located right beside Ritz Med Spa in Franklin, Tennessee. Manduu’s revolutionary electrical muscle stimulation workouts help you achieve better overall physical wellness.

The Manduu® EMS workout system is well known throughout Europe and is now expanding its presence in the United States. This sophisticated workout system uses an electrical muscle stimulation machine that is actually more of a lifestyle system. It focuses on several key factors, including:

  • Muscle strengthening
  • Cardiovascular training
  • Overall wellness

Your personal trainer will first perform an evaluation so your workout can be properly customized to your needs and goals. A body composition analysis will be done, including:

  • Weight
  • Measure of muscle volume
  • Muscle of body fat percentage

This process only takes a few minutes and gives your trainer the information needed to suggest the best and most effective workout.

Next, you’ll suit up for the workout. You’ll be given a special outfit, somewhat similar to a scuba outfit in appearance. This special outfit allows for electrical muscle stimulation in key muscles via electrodes.

During your workout, the electrodes deliver gentle energy pulses into many muscles at once. You’ll follow along with a customized workout while the electrodes deliver extra stimulation to the muscles. This allows you to work out for less time but still get great results. The average Manduu® EMS workout takes only 15 minutes.

The process is pain-free. Many patients compare the sensation of electrical muscle stimulation to a light massage or a gentle tickle.

To engage in Manduu® EMS workouts, you should be in good overall health, with no major heart problems. If you’re looking to get a complete workout in a short period of time, you may be the ideal candidate for the Manduu® electrical muscle stimulation workout system.

Manduu’s muscle stimulator workout system is particularly effective for toning and fat loss because it gives your whole body an intense workout. Manduu® EMS workouts can:

  • Give you a high-intensity workout
  • Increase your heart rate for accelerated fat burning
  • Provide cardio and muscle strengthening in a single workout session
  • Boost your metabolism
  • Help you burn calories and fat, even after the session is over
