NAD+ PROTOCOL

NAD+, or Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, is a cutting-edge therapeutic approach that focuses on optimizing cellular function and promoting overall well-being. NAD+ is a coenzyme found in every cell of the body, playing a crucial role in various biological processes, including energy metabolism, DNA repair, and cellular signaling.

This treatment is available at Aesthetics Concierge of Texas; here you will find everything you need to know about our NAD+ protocol.

WHAT NAD+?

NAD+, or Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, is a cutting-edge therapeutic approach that focuses on optimizing cellular function and promoting overall well-being. NAD+ is a coenzyme found in every cell of the body, playing a crucial role in various biological processes, including energy metabolism, DNA repair, and cellular signaling.

The NAD+ PROTOCOL involves the at home administration of NAD+ subcutaneously, allowing for absorption into the bloodstream. NAD+ is a vital component in the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the primary energy currency of cells. By replenishing NAD+ levels, this protocol supports mitochondrial function, enhances cellular energy production, and promotes cellular repair mechanisms.

TYPES OF NAD+ PROTOCOLS

There are several types of thread procedures used in antiaging medicine. Here are some of the most common ones

STANDARD NAD+ INFUSIONS

Regular infusions of NAD+ to support baseline cellular function and energy production.

Involve the intravenous administration of Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide directly into the bloodstream. This approach ensures rapid and efficient absorption of NAD+ by the body, bypassing the digestive system and allowing for maximum bioavailability.

THERAPEUTIC NAD+ PROTOCOLS

Higher-dose infusions designed to address specific health concerns or conditions, such as neurological disorders or chronic fatigue.

They represent a dynamic approach to aesthetic wellness, addressing cellular function and rejuvenation for comprehensive well-being. For those seeking a personalized and targeted approach to health and aesthetics, Therapeutic NAD+ Infusions offer a promising avenue.

THERAPEUTIC NAD+ PROTOCOLS

involve injecting NAD+ into the layer of tissue just beneath the skin. This method allows for a slower release of NAD+ for a steady state, and is considered less invasive than intravenous administration.

Incorporating our NAD+ PROTOCOL into your aesthetic and wellness journey may offer a unique avenue for optimizing cellular health, boosting energy levels, and promoting overall vitality. Always consult with qualified healthcare professionals to determine the most suitable approach for your individual needs and goals.

BENEFITS OF NAD+ PROTOCOL

  • Enhanced energy through optimization of mitochondrial and metabolic function

    • NAD+ serves as a hydrogen acceptor allowing the transfer of electrons for oxidation/reduction (i.e., redox) reactions leading to ATP production in the mitochondria. ATP represents the cellular “energy currency,” and a decline in intracellular NAD+ levels leads to reduced levels of ATP, culminating in cell death via energy restriction
  • Promotes DNA repair, healthy cell growth, and cell regeneration

    • Apart from its roles in redox reactions, a large body of evidence has shown that NAD+ is more than a regulator of metabolism, but rather can also participate as the required substrate for several important enzymatic reactions, including DNA repair, epigenetically modulated gene expression, maintenance of intracellular calcium homeostasis, and immunological roles

  • Direct acting antioxidant

    • NAD+ represents a decisive, directly operating antioxidant;  NAD+ fulfills this task both by scavenging toxic free radicals and repairing biomolecule-derived radicals

  • Promotes healthy brain function and mental clarity

    • Multiple NAD+-dependent enzymes are involved in synaptic plasticity and neuronal stress resistance.  NAD+ plays a key role in the adaptation of neurons to a wide range of physiological stressors and in counteracting processes in neurodegenerative diseases, such as those occurring in Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Huntington diseases, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis

  • Global anti aging benefits

    • NAD+ plays a pivotal role in pathways that modify aging. Research shows interventions that increase NAD+ may slow aspects of the aging trajectory.

OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH LAS COLINAS PHARMACY FOR EXCEPTIONAL CARE AND PERSONALIZED MEDICATIONS

Aesthetics Concierge of Texas is a partner of Las Colinas Pharmacy. After the consultation takes place, we send your prescription to the Las Colinas Pharmacy and they will ship you the medication within one week.

Established in 1984, Las Colinas Pharmacy is recognized for providing the highest level of service, whether dispensing traditional prescription drugs or personalized, compounded medications.

 One of the original pioneers in pharmacy compounding, Las Colinas Pharmacy sustains cutting edge knowledge, technology and quality control procedures. LCP is proud to claim accreditation by PCAB (Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board).

 LCP’s  pharmacist founder, Jim Hrncir, received national attention when he appeared on several episodes of the Dr. Phil Show. Jim worked with Dr. Phil’s wife, Robin McGraw to achieve hormone balance. He is also featured in her book, What’s Age Got to Do with It?: Living Your Healthiest and Happiest Life. Hrncir says experts in the field refer to a large number of studies which suggest the balanced use of natural hormones help patients feel better and possibly lower the risk of heart disease, osteoporosis, and cancer.

At Aesthetics Concierge of Texas, we partner with Las Colinas Pharmacy to deliver exceptional care and quality prescriptions. 

NAD+ PROTOCOL FAQ

In this FAQ section, we will answer some common questions about NAD+ protocol. This section will provide you with valuable information to help you make an informed decision. 

Please reach us at info@aestheticsconciergeoftexas.com if you cannot find an answer to your question.

How does the NAD+ PROTOCOL work?

The NAD+ PROTOCOL involves self administration of Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+), a coenzyme essential for various cellular functions via a weekly subcutaneous injection (similar to an insulin injection, with a small needle into fat tissue). NAD+ plays a key role in energy production, DNA repair, and cellular communication. The protocol aims to replenish NAD+ levels, supporting overall cellular health and potentially addressing conditions related to aging or cellular damage.

Does the NAD+ PROTOCOL injection hurt?

The injection is generally well-tolerated, with minimal discomfort. NAD+ is administered through a very small needle into subcutaneous tissue. Patients may experience a slight pinch or pressure during needle insertion.

How long do the effects of the NAD+ PROTOCOL last?

Longevity of results can vary patient to patient, but typically results last about one year.  

How long does the treatment take?

It depends on factors such as overall health, lifestyle, and the specific health concerns being addressed. Some may experience immediate benefits, while others may require multiple sessions for sustained effects. Regular maintenance sessions may be recommended for long-term benefits.

What can I expect after the procedure?<br />

Post-procedure experiences may include increased energy levels, improved cognitive function, and a sense of overall well-being. Individual responses can vary, and some individuals may notice progressive benefits over time. It’s important to follow any post-treatment guidelines provided by healthcare professionals and communicate with them about any concerns or questions.
