The Secret to a More Youthful You

At Greenlite Medicine, helping people lose body fat is what we do best. By losing the fat and our weight, we feel more energy and we improve our longevity. But believe it or not, there are situations where the little plumpness of fat provides a good thing.

Fat naturally adds volume and support to the face that keeps wrinkles from forming and your skin looking youthful. However, we start to lose facial fat as early as our 20s, and it’s a downhill slide from there – normal wear and tear, gravity and hormonal changes can speed up the process.

When this happens, we start to see less definition around the face, including sunken temples, forehead and brow wrinkles, the corners of the mouth turned down, hallowing around the eyes, flatter cheeks and slack skin around the jaw.

Luckily, there is a non-invasive way to restore facial volume and achieve smoother skin.

Fullness can be restored through a variety of fillers including temporary (like Restylane, Juvederm and Perlane), or long-term (Sculptra Aesthetic and Radiesse). 

Dr. Rugh is now offering these procedures exclusively to Greenlite Medicine clients, through Bloom Wellness!

The Procedures


Restylane & Perlane

Restylane and Perlane are both hyaluronic acid filler products that are injected into areas of the face for wrinkle reduction and facial “plumping.”

We like to use these more natural fillers, since they are restoring hyaluronic acid, something your body naturally makes, but loses with the aging process. The results with these fillers average around 9 months, however if restored fully, the treatment can last upwards to 18 months (based on clinical trials).

Fillers can be used for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases running from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth, also known as parentheses or smile lines). Fillers may also be used to correct the loss of volume in your lips and in your cheeks.

Training & Expertise


GreenLite’s Dr. Sooji Rugh has been doing these procedures for over 5 years, under a separate practice named “Bloom Wellness.” We have not advertised it to our GreenLite clients until now because we did not want to take away from building GreenLite’s reputation as an expert company in weight loss.

Due to the rewarding results we’ve seen in clients, however, we were motivated to expand on the practice (and include some special discounts for trying it out this holiday season!)

These fillers are particularly nice because the effect is immediate. People may walk out feeling 5-10 years younger and the procedures are very painless and simple.

Naturally, we started to feel like these treatments are a good fit for our clients who work so hard with their weight loss and want to further reward and celebrate their new bodies. (Hey, it’s a non-food reward you can really enjoy!)

Why Are Multivitamins Important for Weight Loss?

multivitaminsIt seems that when it comes to multivitamins, people have strong opinions.

Some are religious about popping a daily pill, while others think vitamins are an unnecessary invention designed by nutrition companies to make money.

Still others think that multivitamins might be a good idea if you’re pregnant, sick, or eating an unhealthy diet, but as long as fruits and vegetables are part of the daily rotation, you don’t need them, right?

Not exactly.  Continue reading
