Nano Fat Transfer - $3500-$5500 

Dr. Merkel has been doing fat transfer for over 25 years with long-lasting results & very little downtime. Fat transfer is the ideal filler for men & women who have sagging, sunken and caved-in cheeks and hollowed temples, as well as lips and chin that have fat atrophy. This treatment using fat-derived stem cells and PRP treats the source of the problem and achieves a long-lasting, and naturally rejuvenated youthful appearance, rather than just temporarily filling the depleted area with other fillers.

ThermiSmooth cellulite reduction  -$350-$550

The best non-surgical way to attack stubborn cellulite, abdominal fat, love handles, and sagging skin on arms, thighs, and knees. ThermiSmooth uses radio frequency technology to deliver heat energy deep into the fat tissue to progressively debulk and tighten skin by stimulating the body to produce more collagen. No-downtime, no pain. The standard protocol is 2-4 treatments spaced 7-10 days apart for best results.

Destroy fat in just three painless treatments. 

Hormone Replenishment

Medical staff can help diagnose hormone deficiencies with the analysis of a blood test which allows us to create a treatment plan for the low hormone levels including testosterone, estrogen, progesterone and other critical hormones. By replenishing your hormone deficiencies one can improve energy levels, mental balance and clarity, skin, hair and of course libido.
Initial Consult $99. Blood testing at $325

Stem Cell Joint Injection $3500-$4500

Have you been suffering from pain in a joint either due to an injury or simply because of aging and depletion of cartilage on articular surfaces(bone on bone). Stem cells are either harvested from the patients’ own fat or purchased from a stem cell bank which have been extracted from healthy umbilical cord cells. Stem cells aid in the healing and rebuilding of depleted cartilage of most joints. When the cartilage is not regrown the patient will have ongoing chronic pain and loss of function. Using the Stem Cell method can eliminate the need for joint surgery. More than one joint can be injected at the same sitting should you have multiple pain locations.
