What does your Weight Loss program consist of?

We combine a number of powerful therapies, including peptides, photobiomodulation (light therapy), and hormone balancing. In addition, we address pain and injuries that may be impairing your the ability to exercise. We provide both in-office therapy plus telemedicine support in the convenience of your home.

How long does the program last?

Most people have gained their weight over many years so reversing the trend requires time and patience.  That said, we can accelerate the weight loss process by the combining highly effective therapies and frequent interaction with our therapists. Each weight loss program is tailored to individual needs and can be expected to last for several weeks.

How much does it cost?

We offer package pricing for our combination therapies that are highly competitive.  We are able to offer peptides at a discount to exorbitant pharmacy pricing. 

How long does the treatment take?

Depending on the surface area to be treated (face, neck, chest, hands, arms, hair, etc.), the treatment can take anywhere between 45 to 90 minutes, including application of a topical anesthetic.

What does your face look like after?

The beauty of this treatment is that it doesn’t break down the epidermis (outer layer of the skin) so there is no scarring and no downtime. The body’s natural healing system simply goes to work repairing the perceived damage. All you see is fresher and younger skin within a week. Some redness after treatment is normal but subsides by the next day. Skin can feel dry and taunt over several days. There is no blistering or sloughing of skin as seen with other more invasive therapies.

How many session will be necessary?

Usually only one session is necessary, although deeper acne scars and older, looser skin may require a follow-up session a few weeks later.

How much does it cost?

The cost of Exosome Facial Rejuvenation is usually less than the cost of laser and RF treatments and depends on the size of the area(s) to be treated.

How long do the benefits last?

Noticeable skin rejuvenation can be expected to last 18 to 24 months.

What are Exosomes?

Exosome therapy is a form of regenerative medicine. Exosomes are small vesicles released by cells that carry important signaling proteins and genetic information from cell to cell. Exosome therapy replicates the information in human vesicles and can direct the body to heal itself through its own regenerative process. Different types of exosomes are used depending on the organ systems to be targeted. 

Are certain injuries of pain not responsive to Acoustic Wave Therapy?

Our therapists will avoid treating injuries where there is suspected significant tendon or ligament rupture or tear, new fractures, the site of recent surgery, or any area with signs of infection. Patients will be referred back to their physician for evaluation of these conditions prior to therapy. 

Are Shockwave Therapy sessions painful?

No.  Our therapists are careful to adjust the level of shockwave treatment to each person’s tolerance for pain.  They may occasionally use an anesthetic cream when treating areas that are particularly painful or recently injured. Pain tolerance rapidly improves after just a few sessions.

Can you treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome with Shockwave Therapy?

Yes, our therapists have successfully treated many patients with carpal tunnel syndrome, sparing them the use of cumbersome braces and the prospect of painful surgery.

Do you combine Shockwave Therapy with Red Light / Near Infrared Therapy?

Yes, we frequently combine the two therapies for optimal effect.  These sessions will typically last longer than ordinary shockwave therapies and may cost more.

How many Shockwave Therapy sessions are needed to treat Orthopedic Pain and injury?

Most orthopedic pain and injury respond within 3 to 5 treatments. Each treatment session lasts 10-15 minutes and can be scheduled twice weekly with 2 days between treatments. 

How does Red Light / Near Infrared Therapy work?

Light therapy is a fast-growing technology used to treat a multitude of conditions that require stimulation of healing, relief of pain and inflammation, and restoration of function. The particular frequencies of light we use impact a number of structures.

Light therapy stimulates mitochondria, the source of energy for all cells, boosts the formation of new blood vessels, enhances the production of collagen and fibroblasts, important components of connective tissue, accelerates turnover of damaged cells through RNA and DNA synthesis, enhances lymphatic drainage and reduces inflammation and pain. Men have found that exposure to Red Light /Near Infrared light can also enhance testosterone production and enhance vitality.

What conditions do you treat with Light Therapy?

A broad range of conditions can be treated with light therapy.  These can range from headache to brain fog, to low back pain and sciatica, to peripheral neuropathy and hair loss. Our therapists can guide you as to which conditions are most responsive to light therapy. 

How Does Red Light Therapy work on the brain?

Red Light Therapy involves using devices fitted with LED bulbs to apply a narrow spectrum of light to bare skin. Specifically, this is a range of light wavelengths, measured in nanometers (nm), that includes red (630 to 660 nm) and near-infrared (810 to 850 nm).

These wavelengths have been widely studied and confirmed to have a powerful stimulating effect on the human body.

Based on encouraging clinical trials specific to the effects of red light on brain health, along with encouraging anecdotal reports, researchers believe red light may be useful in improving brain cell metabolism and reducing inflammation.

Just as important, red and particularly near-infrared (NIR) wavelengths are long enough to penetrate human tissue – and even bone – which can make red light therapy a viable treatment for brain health.

How many Red Light Therapy sessions are needed to treat Migraine and Tension Headaches?

We find that most headaches respond to a single treatment session of 40 minutes. Chronic headache conditions may require multiple sessions.

How many Light Therapy sessions are needed to treat brain fog?

We find that most Brain Fog responds to one or two, forty-minute sessions with at least one day in between. We can offer additional therapies depending on the presence of related conditions such as fatigue and sleep difficulties.

How long are Red Light / Near Infrared Therapy sessions?

Sessions typically last 40 minutes. If more than one session is required, we allow for at least a day in between treatments. 

How long is each ED Therapy session?

Allow for 45-60 minutes for each session. The actual therapy session lasts around 15-20 minutes, and some men are able to get in and out within 30 minutes.

How many sessions will be needed to treat ED?

The usual course of therapy is from 6 to 12 sessions, typically with 2 sessions scheduled per week at least 2 days apart.  The total number of sessions depends on the underlying health of the patient, age, medications, and urological surgery history (if any). A treatment schedule can be worked out at the time of the initial consultation.

Does it hurt?

No.  Most men feel only a vibration that is not painful. Some men who have concurrent Peyronie’s Disease, a painful curvature of the penis, may require numbing cream prior to the treatment.  The cream takes about 20 minutes to act and then wears off after a couple of hours. There is no residual pain or tenderness. 

How long do treatments last?

A full course of therapy can be expected to last a year or more.  Some men only require an occasional treatment session to maintain the benefits experienced after the initial course of therapy. 


Yes, we frequently treat men whose enlarged prostate causes them to partially void, necessitating frequent trips to the bathroom and sleep interruption.  These treatments differ from ED and Peyronie’s treatments in that shockwaves are directed at the perineum to stimulate urine flow and obtain more complete urinary voiding. 

What does it cost to treat ED?

We offer package pricing discounts based on the number of treatment sessions required and any other therapies you might want to include.  We can also arrange for financing through a third party. HSAs may be used to pay for the service.

Can you treat ED secondary to prostate surgery?

Yes, our therapists are experienced with the treatment of ED as a result of prostate surgery.  In general, the sooner after surgery treatment can begin, and combined with medical therapy, the better the result.  The actual treatment is the same as normal ED therapy. 

How many sessions will be needed to treat urinary incontinence?

Generally, a single session using the Viveve® treatment system is necessary to gain significant control over stress urinary incontinence.  Some women with severe incontinence of long duration may obtain additional benefit from a second treatment session.

How long do Viveve treatment sessions last for urinary incontinence?

The non-surgical treatment sessions last just one hour and full activity can be resumed immediately.

What is the duration of benefit from Viveve treatment?

Enhanced urinary control can be expected to last from one to two years or more. 

What does Viveve treatment cost?

Viveve® treatment costs far less than surgery and is more cost-effective than long-term medical therapy. Our charges are all-inclusive of evaluation, treatment, and follow up. Financing is available.

Is the cost of Viveve treatment covered by insurance?

Insurance companies are not yet covering the cost of Viveve® treatment.

What treatments do you use for Peripheral Neuropathy?

We use a combination of therapies depending on the patient.  A treatment session usually combines shockwave therapy with photobiomodulation (light therapy).  In addition, depending on the patient, we often prescribe biologics such as peptides and exosomes to be taken at home.

How many sessions can I expect?

Peripheral neuropathy involves treatings the nerves in the extremities and the blood vessels. Both take time to regenerate from their damaged state.  For example, nerve regeneration takes at least 12 weeks.  Therefore, we recommend a minimum of 6 treatment sessions and often more depending on the patient’s underlying health status and response to treatment. 

How long do Peripheral Neuropathy treatment sessions last?

Due to the surface area to be treated, including the feet and lower leg, and alternating shockwave with light therapy for each side, the treatment sessions usually require 60 minutes or more.  These are among our longest sessions but we believe careful attention to all treatment areas offers the best results.

How much does the treatment cost?

Treatments costs vary considerably based on the number of sessions and the concurrent prescription of biologicals.  We offer package pricing that combines all modalities over several sessions to bring the cost down.

How do I schedule a Telemedicine Consultation?

Use this LINK and fill out our CONTACT FORM or leave a message at (949) 996-9775.

What does a Telemedicine Session cost?

We charge a low, flat fee for the initial consultation. Subsequent charges are based on a mutually agreed upon Wellness Plan. Package pricing can markedly reduce costs.

Does insurance cover telemedicine services?

Insurance does not cover Telemedicine services, but HSAs may be used to cover the cost. We find that our coordination of care and services can save the cost of many co-payments and deductibles or insurance company denials that would otherwise be incurred. 

How long do telemedicine sessions last?

Sessions can last as few as 10-15 minutes are as long as 50 minutes, depending on the phase of the care process (Initial Evaluation versus Follow-up Visit) and the condition under treatment. 

What are Peptides?

Peptides are short chains of amino acids (the basis of all proteins) that are naturally produced in our cells and have specific effects on our cells and organ systems. They are reproduced in the lab to be identical to peptides of natural origin and can be taken as dietary supplements.

Despite their small size, peptides have emerged as increasingly important biological entities capable of improving digestive function, boosting metabolism, reducing inflammation, enhancing libido, and reducing aging.

What are Exosomes?

Exosome therapy is a form of regenerative medicine. Exosomes are small vesicles released by cells that carry important signaling proteins and genetic information from cell to cell. Exosome therapy replicates the information in human vesicles and can direct the body to heal itself through its own regenerative process. Different types of exosomes are used depending on the organ systems to be targeted.
