The 19th Annual World Congress on Anti-Ageing and Aesthetic Medicine in Orlando, Florida, has introduced some remarkable treatments, which could herald a new era in anti-ageing technology.
Here is a selection of the most remarkable age-reversal treatments on offer at the conference as reported by the Daily Mail.
1.Cell rejuvenation through telomerase activation A-65 activates an enzyme called telomerase that helps protect the telomeres, which are responsible for maintaining the quality of our DNA, thereby protecting the cell.
TA-65 is taken as a nutritional supplement and is produced by concentrating one of the compounds found in the astragalus root, a herb used in Chinese medicine.
The treatment cost from 120 pounds to 404 pounds a month, depending on age of patient.
2. Sleep better: the Alpha-Stim SCS treatment
The Alpha-Stim SCS (Stress Control System) is slightly larger than a mobile phone.
Treatment involves attaching two electrodes to the ear, wrist or forehead. The machine is then switched on. This produces a slight tingling sensation around the electrodes.
Patients usually experience better sleep within three days and after a week many report feeling less depressed, angry or anxious. It cost 299 pounds.
3. Prolotherapy: This treatment involves injecting the patient with a dextrose to repair tissue damage.
Prolotherapy is often performed in conjunction with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections and cost 245 including initial consultation.
4. Supplement: Nitric Oxide pills can boost circulation

USN Alpha Nitrox NO2, 90 caps cost 25.99 pounds.
5.Laser Hat: To stimulate hair growth, this treatment is 2,000 pounds.
