Anti-Aging Medicine

124825659Anti-aging medicine uses advances in science and technology to treat normal aging processes or age-related disabilities to increase quality and longevity of life. Dr. Oliva-Custic is working toward a fellowship in anti-aging and metabolic medicine. Her goal is to keep increasing her knowledge in the newest advances in alternative and preventative medicine, and to use this knowledge to design programs to optimize treatment for skin conditions and to promote healthy aging and longevity.

DermIDEA currently offers these anti-aging tests and treatments:

Spectracell Test

Micronutrient testing by Spectracell Laboratories can measure your nutrient status over the last 4-8 months. This test uniquely measures the biological function of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants.

Hair Toxin Test

Testing the hair for toxin and element levels can identify your exposure to 45 essential and toxic elements. Find out how you can reduce toxins in your body.

The consultation includes test results, analysis, and follow-up: test kits are sold separately.

Antioxidant Treatments

Antioxidants reduce damage from stresses such as aging, smoking, pollution, excessive sun exposure, and infection. DermIDEA offers GliSOD, an oral  supplement that contains superoxide dismutase (SOD), a powerful antioxidant derived from the cantaloupe melon.
