ABOUT OUR PROGRAM
Welcome to the Oasis Med-SPA Anti-Aging program. You may have several questions about how you can benefit from our anti-aging program.
What is Aging?
The distribution of life expectancy in a population is usually expressed from the survival curve (below), which expresses the probability for an individual of being still alive at age t. From such a curve, other useful derived quantities can be obtained:
Figure 1: Typical survival curve for human population. Notice that the drop of survivorship in early years due to infant mortality has dramatically reduced in recent times. The aging of the population is also very apparent, as the survival curve drop occurs later in life and becomes sharper after 1950.
The life span from birth (or from any other age), which has several definitions:
- the mean, an average of the actual life span in a population
- the median, the time at which the probability of still being alive is 50 %, or
- the maximal life span, which is the maximal age an individual can reach.
A few other quantities can be defined from the survival curve:
- the hazard function, or mortality rate, is the rate of deaths at a given age t, and
- the cumulative hazard function, which is the probability of dying at a given age t, given that the individual has survived up to age t.
Although the survival curve, the mortality rate and the cumulative hazard function carry the same information, in the sense that they can be converted one into another by trivial mathematical transformations, it is customary to use the survival curve as the fundamental quantity, as it is easily measured. For presentation of the results though, the mortality rate is often used, as it shows trends perhaps more clearly than the survival curve itself, which is by definition always steadily decreasing from 1 to 0.
What is the Age?
The simple definitions of aging is that it is the result of biochemical changes due to internal and external factors over body cells.
Why Do We Age?
Senescence (the deleterious effects of getting old) is ultimately caused by biochemical deregulation of the processes of life. On the other hand, inheritance must play a role in longevity, as it is a trait quite conserved within a species: for example, bats generally live much longer (up to 30 years) than rodents (usually 2 to 3 years), although they are mammals roughly the same size. There are even animals which seem to exhibit only negligible senescence, among others some turtles, rockfish and possibly lobster; extreme differences between life span of apparently quite similar species have been observed, such as the calico rockfish (12 years) and the rougheye rockfish (205 years). and conclude with a brief introduction to some theories about the ageing process.
What’s Anti-Aging Medicine?
For the scientific community, anti-aging research refers exclusively to slowing, preventing, or reversing the aging process.
At Oasis (Med-SPA & Anti-Aging Center) and the more reputable medical business community, anti-aging medicine means early detection, prevention, and reversal of age-related diseases. This is quite different from tackling the aging process itself, and a wide array of strategies and therapies are currently available. Calorie restriction, for example, is a demonstrated way to lower risk for a wide range of age-related degenerative conditions.
How Does Oasis Med-SPA Develop My Anti-Aging Program?
We customize the program especially for you. Basically there are 4 issues:
- Clinical evaluation
- Lab-work (around 50 values)
- Control diseases *
- Fasting period
- Safety of fasting and low calorie dieting
- Vitamins & minerals
Another important issue is the figure which can be improved by Aesthetics or Cosmetic procedures.
What Lab-work Will Be Performed?
We will perform more than 35 blood determinations:
- Complete Blood Count
- Liver profile
- Chemistry panel
- Cardiac risk profile
- Thyroid profile
Level measurements of:
- P.S.A (Prostate Specific Antigen)
- DHEA ( Dehydroepiandrosterone)
- Grow Human Hormone
- EKG with or w/o Echo stress
- Lung function test ( Spirometry)
The Anti-Aging program is not just “taking pills or having shots”. It’s a disciplined and new style of life, based on a knowledge of natural substances, element replacement, disease prevention and sound medical advice.
Your doctor at Oasis Med-SPA will advise you of the anti-aging program that is just right for you.
