Anti-Aging & Hyperbarics

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is utilized by many physicians to treat diseases and conditions associated with aging

HBOT contributes to cellular regeneration of tissues and blood vessels by increasing oxygen in the body. HBOT promotes angiogenesis to treat circulatory issues such as stroke and diabetes. HBOT improves cardiovascular disease by increasing oxygenation and function of the heart. HBOT helps treat conditions such as alzheimers and dementia by stimulating neurogenesis in the brain. And HBOT reduces inflammation and pain associated with injuries, arthritis, and other immune-related diseases. For aesthetics, HBOT has been shown to help maintain skin elasticity and reduces skin damage promoting beautiful and healthy skin. Many patients enjoy the benefits of HBOT when applied with other progressive anti-aging therapies such as Stem cell and PRP injections.

  • Stimulates Epithelialization & Reduces Scar Formation

Study: Skin Damage from Ultraviolet Radiation with HBOT

A study from 2012 focused on the effects of HBOT preconditioning and its protective properties against Ultraviolet-A radiation (UV-A) induced oxidative damage to cutaneous tissue. Three groups of hairless mice were exposed to UVA, three days a week for 22 weeks, with two of the groups receiving HBOT pretreatment either two or four times per week. UV-A exposure amplified apoptosis and proliferation of skin tissue, signifying elevated levels of epithelial damage and repair. Pretreatment with HBOT substantially reduced UV-A-induced apoptosis and proliferation. In addition, HBOT pretreatment prevented skin creasing and maintained skin elasticity.
