Hormone levels decline as we age. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) replenishes the hormones that your body needs to function optimally. The molecule of the bioidentical hormone is identical in structure to the hormones naturally found in the body. Synthetic hormones, on the other hand, are similar to, but not exactly the same as the hormones produced in your body. Synthetic hormones act differently, produce different effects and have different side effects than the safer, more effective bioidentical hormones. We at Chadds Ford Wellness use bioidentical hormones instead of synthetic hormones. We assess your individual needs and help to bring your hormone levels into an optimal, more youthful range. The program is customized and personalized based on your symptoms, lab levels, and family history. In order to assure an adequate dose and response to treatment, your hormone levels are monitored and adjusted to maintain optimal levels. Common hormone levels that are commonly checked are as follows. Signs and symptoms of deficiencies are listed, as well.

  • Thyroid: Fatigue, weakness, weight gain or increased difficulty losing weight, coarse, dry hair, dry, rough skin, hair loss, cold intolerance, muscle cramps or aches, constipation, depression, irritability, memory loss, brain fog, irregular periods, low libido

  • Testosterone: Fatigue, loss of lean muscle mass, difficulty gaining muscle, increased fat around the waist, reduced overall sense of well being, depression, erectile dysfunction, decreased sensitivity during sex, loss of ability to orgasm, delayed climax, muscle and joint pain, impaired healing, difficulty recovering after working out, premature aging of the skin

  • DHEA: Mood disorders, adrenal fatigue, poor immune system function or presence of chronic disease, poor bone density ( diagnosis of osteopenia or osteoporosis or family history)

  • Estrogen: Hot flashes, night sweats, irritability, vaginal dryness or atrophy, pain with intercourse, bladder incontinence, fatigue, low libido, poor cognitive function, poor memory, poor bone density, skin dryness, and drooping breasts

  • Progesterone: PMS symptoms, mood swings, irritability, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, acne, cysts on ovaries and in breasts, uterine fibroid tumors, endometriosis, hot flashes, night sweats, water retention, bloating, weight gain at puberty, childbirth, and menopause, irregular period, breast tenderness, insomnia, headaches or migraines, early aging of skin, hair loss, brittle nails, chronic fatigue, low libido, poor bone density, dry skin, psoriasis, varicose veins, and urinary incontinence

Office visits are not covered by insurance. The cost for our bioidentical hormone replacement program is $500 per hour. Typically the initial visit is about an hour and follow up visits are approximately a half hour. Blood work is checked at every appointment. Follow ups are required every 2-3 months until symptoms and hormone levels are optimized. Once optimized appointments are required twice a year - once may be done over the phone at the same price for convenience and the other must be in person as a physical exam is required.



The Vampire procedures offered at Chadds Ford Wellness involve using platelet rich plasma (PRP) to aid in the rejuvenation and restoration of the original function of your body:

· Vampire Facelift: involves injections of PRP from your own blood as well as filler to help lift and sculpt specific areas of your face, including the eyebrows, cheeks, under eye area, mouth, and chin to provide a more youthful look. Combining your blood with filler not only helps to add volume where necessary, but it also decreases the amount of filler required to make you look younger making it a much safer procedure than filler alone. The Vampire Facelift also helps to improve the quality of your skin wherever it is injected providing a rejuvenated and refreshed result. | $1500 per treatment

· Vampire Facial: your PRP is applied topically to the skin of your face and microneedling is performed to infuse the growth factors in your platelets into your skin. The combination of working your facial muscles from insertion to origin with the microneedling pen and the effects of the PRP provides an improvement in skin quality, texture, and color and can help to soften fine lines and wrinkles. | $600 per treatment

· Vampire Hair Regrowth: involves topically applied PRP with microneedling to the scalp as well as injections of PRP into the scalp. A nerve block is done prior to minimize pain as much as possible. Growth factors in your PRP help to provide a healthier environment for hair follicles resulting in improved hair quality as well as hair growth. While this treatment can be done preventatively as well as for those experiencing hair thinning and shedding, we unfortunately cannot achieve hair growth in areas where it is completely absent. Hormonal and vitamin deficiencies should be considered and levels should be checked prior to treatment. | $1900 for 3 treatments

· Vampire Breast Lift: works similarly to the Vampire Face Lift, in a different area of the body – the breasts. Both platelet rich plasma (PRP) and platelet poor plasma (PPP) are injected to the upper-mid part of your breast (the cleavage area) to help rejuvenate your breast tissue. The growth factors in your blood activate the fat cells in your breasts and stimulate them to multiply. This gives a more rounded and enhanced look of the cleavage area of the breast. Filler may also be used to correct any defects from prior breast enhancement surgery or scarring. This procedure helps with asymmetry, sagging, aging implants, stretch marks, inverted nipples, and decreased nipple sensation. | $1800 per treatment

· O-Shot: one injection of PRP into the clitoris and vagina to help with sexual dysfunction, vaginal atrophy, lichen sclerosus, urinary incontinence, and even just to make sex better! Don’t worry – numbing cream, ice, and a clitoral block are used prior to the procedure and minimal to no pain is felt from the injections. | $1200 per treatment

PRP works by creating inflammation to stimulate the immune system to flood the area injected with growth factors to aid in healing, rejuvenation, increased blood flow, and restoration of collagen. Results typically last up to 1 year.|



Botox Injections

Wrinkles are often caused by facial expressions. You may notice wrinkles that are only present with movement of your facial muscles. These are called dynamic wrinkles. As we age, these wrinkles may be noticed without any facial movement, indicating static wrinkles. Botulinum toxin injections, including Botox, are used to temporarily paralyze facial muscles to reduce movement, and thus, wrinkles. Botox is indicated for the temporary improvement of moderate to severe crow’s feet (lines on either side of the eyes when you smile or squint) and the glabellar area (frown lines between the eyebrows) in adults. Botox has been used off-label for years in the treatment of facial wrinkles.

Injections take 3-7 days to take effect. Results last anywhere from 3-6 months. Lines and wrinkles will diminish over time with continued use as your facial muscles are trained to relax. The amount of product needed to offer an optimal result varies from patient to patient. The cost is $12 per unit. Total cost per treatment depends on the amount of product used. 

Dermal Filler Injections

As we age, facial wrinkles continue to worsen due to the redistribution of facial fat, bone loss throughout the face, muscle laxity, and external factors such as smoking and sun damage. Wrinkles can become static, or present at rest, and can even cause scarring over time. Dermal fillers are used to correct these issues by lifting wrinkles and folds and adding volume when necessary. These injections consist of a clear gel called hyaluronic acid, which is also found in the body. Your body will eventually break this down and it will be absorbed. Results are seen immediately and last 6 to 12 months, depending on the area treated. The cost is approximately $600 per 1 mL syringe. The amount of filler used varies on a case by case basis.



Whether you are suffering from an infection, a virus, or a chronic medical disease we can help ease your symptoms and co-treat your condition with one of the following intravenous (IV) treatments:

Major autohemolytic therapy (MAH) is an intravenous (IV) infusion of your own blood mixed with ozone gas and infused back into your venous blood stream. This can be done to help boost the immune system and help treat chronic conditions such as Lyme disease, coinfections associated with Lyme disease, and many others, in conjunction with long-term treatment by your doctor. 

Myers’ cocktail infusions can also be given involving a mixture of nutrients including magnesium, calcium, B vitamins, and vitamin C. The Myers’ cocktail has been found to aid in the treatment of chronic respiratory conditions, such as allergies and asthma, as well as acute illness, to include a hangover and the common cold. 

High dose vitamin C infusions are a great treatment option for many of the conditions listed above, as well, because the body has a difficult time absorbing high doses of vitamin C when taken orally. Benefits include improved immune system function, enhanced detoxification of the body, reduced inflammation, and greater overall sense of well-being.

Other additives that may be added to your IV treatment include, but are not limited to:

  • Glutathione

  • Alpha lipoic acid

  • Vitamin B12 injections 

IV infusions at Chadds Ford Wellness are performed in a comfortable setting using ultrasound guidance and pre-treatment anesthesia (numbing injection) to minimize any discomfort of the IV placement. Treatments take anywhere from 15-90 minutes to complete. Cost starts at $150 and varies depending on what is added to the treatment.
