What is Integrative Medicine?
Recent advances in integrative medicine have to lead to new cutting-edge treatments for anti-aging and cellular integrative medicine. Altair Integrative Wellness is pleased to have developed a new Medical Division within its clinic to incorporate this new medical specialty of Integrative Medicine.
Integrative Medicine is a medical sub-specialty that incorporates many areas of pain management, under the umbrella of nerve or cellular regeneration, as well as rejuvenating aesthetic and cosmetic medicine. We offer new non-opioid pain management treatments such as nerve pain therapy for chronic pain or neuropathy, as well as PRP injection therapy treatments for pain or aesthetic medicine. Also offered under the auspices of Integrative Medicine is testing and bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for both women and men. We have traditional medicine and an urgent care for our patients as well as woman's gynecological care.
Urgent medical conditions are ones that are not considered emergencies but still require care within 24 hours. As an established patient you can call us and we can get you in as soon as possible. At our urgent care center, we will focus on the delivery of traditional medical care for minor illnesses and injuries.

Woman's Wellness (Gyne Health)
A women's wellness exam includes a full physical exam, including a clinical breast and pelvic exam (Gyne) as well as health screenings, blood tests, and education or counseling so you can make informed health care decisions. Even If you feel fine, you should make your annual women's wellness exam a priority.
Injection (PRP) Therapy
PRP is a technique where the whole blood is drawn from the patient's own body in form of a routine venous puncture, then utilizing an FDA-approved centrifuge procedure, which is spun down separating the plasma from red blood cells. When this plasma is then injected into soft tissue, the results may be cellular matrix strengthening and volume building to regenerate such. PRP can be given certain joints such as the knee, shoulders, as well as cosmetic facial in "creases" that increases tissue volume and strength. More information on PRP can be found on the PRP Platelet Rich Plasma link on our home page.
Both peptides and proteins are polymers of amino acids. A Peptide generally consists of a chain of less than 100 amino acids, while a protein consists of a longer chain of over 100 amino acids. These prescription injections may increase cellular repair, improved pain and sleep quality, decrease body fat, and stimulate anti-aging skin effects.
Bio-identical Hormone Therapy (HRT) and Well Woman Gyne Services.
HRT treatment is available for both men and women. As most women are aware today, non-bioidentical HRT in past years was prescribed in the form of conjugated estrogens, i.e. under the brand named Premarin. Woman's Health Initiative study released in 2005 found an increased risk of breast cancer and uterine cancer, as well as increased risk of stroke and heart attacks on Premarin. Bio-Identical HRT is a much safer option.
Men, as well as women often feel reduced energy and vitality as they age, as their testosterone decreases. Serum blood tests can asses the levels of testosterone and if clinically low a prescription form of topical cream or surgical pellet implantation or bi-weekly injections may be appropriate.
Prices depends of the number of pellets needing to be inserted based on lab work levels.
Now under our Regenerative Medicine division, we continue to offer a full realm of cosmetic medicine treatments for purely an enhanced aesthetic effect. Dr. Dunn, PhD, NP-C continues to update techniques in advanced Botox, the full line of Allergen tissue fillers, micro-pigmentology implantation, as well as the newest FDA approved permanent submental chin fat reduction procedure known as "Kybella " injections. You can find prices and services for these under the Medical Spa link on our home page.
