Get Summer Vacation Ready with Dr. Fazylova’s 360 Degree Approach

                                                        Dr. Natalya Fazylova

If it feels like every other day you are pitched a new “miracle” product or treatment to help you look and feel your best, then you’re not alone. It’s well established that most of us want to look and feel confident, particularly when it comes to swimsuit season, but we’re constantly being bombarded with a myriad of fad diets, cellulite reducing scrubs, fat freezing treatments, saline injections, glowing treatments, wrinkle fighting gels, slimming teas, healthful vitamin packed smoothies, juice cleanses … The list goes on and on.To learn how to really look and feel our best we turned to Dr. Natalya Fazylova, DNP, ANP-BC, BCIM. Considered a wellness and lifestyle architect, Fazylova develops personalized treatments focused on a whole-body approach. Focusing on what’s going on inside the body, as much as appearance.

Her Rebalance 360 program, designed with her partner, Dr. Arkandy Lipnitsky, focuses on the 5 R’s to a healthier you; Remove, Rebalance, Regenerate, Revitalize, and Rejuvenate. This customized wellness package focuses on everything from hormonal imbalance stabilization and disease prevention to laser hair removal and wrinkle reduction. Placing emphasis just as much on cosmetic procedures as well as more in-depth health issues.

Fashion Reverie: Tell us more about how this 360 degree approach works.Dr. Fazylova: [We offer] multiple services … for hormonal imbalances, exercise training, nutritional counseling and aesthetics. My partner also does all the rehab and joints. So, when a person comes [into our offices, we first run tests] then based on the results, we offer a plan of care … detoxing the body, helping people lose weight (if needed), helping guide them to proper nutrition, changes in lifestyle and their exercise regime, checking their joints and muscles, and even making sure it’s the right exercise so that they won’t hurt themselves. Then we also offer aesthetic treatments as well as IV drips, so it’s basically taking care of the person from head to toe.

FR: Where did this idea to treat the whole body come about?

Dr. Fazylova: I came up with this idea after working in conventional medicine for many years and after having my baby (now 12 years ago). It got to the point where I was experiencing a lot of symptoms and no one could figure out what was wrong with me.  The regular doctors did the usual testing, but the results were not inclusive enough. Those results made me think that maybe there’s something more. Maybe there is a piece of the puzzle missing.

The conventional medical system is fragmented. When you have problems, you see separately the endocrinologist, you see separately the heart doctor, a neurologist and everybody focuses their attention on what their specialty field is and things get missed. And that is exactly what was happening to me. I’d visit the endocrinologist, gynecologist, and many other doctors and nobody could figure out what was wrong. So, I start looking for myself on Dr. Google to find the information and that’s how I got into the holistic field. Once I put my symptoms together, I figured out what was wrong and healed myself.  But it made me realize how many other patients of mine [may also have things overlooked.]

FR: So it was based off of your own symptoms and struggles that you developed this program then.

Dr. Fazylova: [Yes, I’d noticed the same] narrow approach and a lot of patients could not figure out what was wrong with them because we were not looking at the whole picture. So, I went back to school and got the certification in interpretive medicine and got board certified. I’m actually a member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.

You would be surprised how many patients come in and after I do the testing and I find the problem, say to me nobody has told me that before. It kind of makes sense because our hearts, brains, lungs, and kidneys, they don’t work separately.  So, it is foolish I think to treat a person only focusing on one body part and ignoring the rest.

FR: Can you give some examples of what types of symptoms a client might come in with, or treatments they might be looking for.

Dr. Fazylova: One thing would be hair restoration … Yes, it’s an aesthetic, but many times hair loss is actually caused by something going on inside. I [would do] blood work and a saliva test and whatever [else is needed.] We try to figure out why they’re, losing their hair while we do the therapy treatment.  They come in with one issue, [but we find an underlying problem.]. So [in that regard, many times] my aesthetic clients have become my wellness clients.

When ladies especially have a lot of hair, there is usually a hormonal component involved in it as well. It is kind of interesting how it is all integrated.   Someone comes in for aesthetics and I treat them for wellness … or they come in for wellness and I’ll treat some aesthetic problems.

[Clients love this one stop shopping approach too.] A client may come in for IV drips infusions (for different reasons) and while they are dripping for 2-3 hours, they get their facials at the same time! They are getting different things done and everything is being addressed. That is what makes us unique, offering two things at the same time.

FR: What treatments would you recommend for an upcoming vacation?

Dr. Fazylova: We do offer one-month and two-month detox program that help to remove all the chemicals or toxins in the body. A detox program helps to [facilitate weight loss].   In one month someone could lose 5 to 10 pounds by just doing that detox program.   Plus we offer different types of weight loss programs … with detox, without detox, a shorter 20 day program, and a 2 months program.   Depending on what people need, but before we do any weight loss programs, we check all the hormones to see what is causing the weight gain. Since a lot of times it is hormone related and if we don’t fix someone’s hormones, they may lose weight temporarily, and then they will gain it back … We need to find the reason and then treat the reason.

We also offer injections for excessive sweating. One treatment lasts for about 9-12 months and substantially decreases sweating. That’s also very popular for upcoming trips [especially honeymoons].

FR: You also offer laser hair removal, facials and IV drips at your offices. While the benefits of laser hair removal and facials are fairly well known, can you talk a bit more about the reason someone would come in for an IV drip?Dr. Fazylova: A lot of women who come in want to have a glowing complexion, less wrinkles. We actually offer an IV drip that lightens up pigmentation and makes skin glow. It cleans out the toxins and plumps the skin.  Since it’s a drip, it’s not directly applied to the skin, but it goes through the body to make the skin look better

Someone who is rapidly getting wrinkles could be experiencing that because [that person] is dehydrated. Or a person who is eating improperly has bad skin. They need to be [consuming a diet] high in Vitamin E, Vitamin A and fish oil or seafood to improve their complexion. Essential fatty acids like avocados and nuts (for example, cashews). So there is definitely a component of what you eat and its effects on the outside.

FR: Are you offering any special treatments for summer?

Dr. Fazylova: Yes, we have a vampire facial for the month of July

FR: The vampire facial is a big red carpet favorite right now. Can you speak out its benefits?

Dr. Fazylova: A vampire facial is when you use the patient’s own blood.  We collect the specimen and prepare it [properly], separating the plasma with stem cells in it (aka growth factors).   It will lessen the wrinkles because it helps to build up collagen. Since it’s from the patient’s own body, there is generally no [negative] reaction.  [Most people see] great results, they may [experience] redness for 24 hours, but most have [no side effects.] It closes the pores (making them smaller) and helps to change the tone of the skin pigmentation, lighten it up with regular treatments.  Our patients love it—you do need to do about 3 to 4 treatments to follow the cell cycle.   Over the month-long cell cycle, you’ll [notice] an improvement of skin texture.    

Plus, there’s no limitation on skin color, blood type [or anything else.] We just ask that patients stay well hydrated—not just the day of, but also the day before.   Most patients find their skin is glowing a few days after a treatment.  It lessens under eye circles as well. To see the full benefits, you need to do several treatments though.  

FR: Since you do mention multiple treatments, how early before a summer trip should someone come in if they’re interested in getting a vampire facial?

Dr. Fazylova: If you’re looking for the full effect [no less than] 3 months.  However, if the event is [quickly approaching] I would say a week beforehand.  Even though it won’t [completely heal] all of your skin’s problems, it will still even out the skin tone and give a nice glow.

FR: One last question, do you have any other tips or tricks for getting on the right path to general wellness to look and feel amazing?Dr. Fazylova: Start by making changes to the diet and increasing fluid intake.  Depending on the diet you’re currently following, [you most likely need to] eliminate all the sugars and unhealthy fats.  Lots of sugar and bad fats can damage the cells. Also, it makes the body age faster.

For an improved skincare regimen, you should come in for a complimentary consultation. We can provide you with products specifically designed for your skin type.  Many of our clients have found out that their using inappropriate products for their skin type; they may be good quality and expensive, but not the right ones for them.

  1. I really need to get summer vacation ready – I’m going on holiday in a couple of weeks and my skin is not looking the best right now. That’s it – I’m cutting out the chocolate and upping the water! I’ve also wanted to get a vampire facial ever since I saw Kim K have one but I was none the wiser about the science behind it so that was a very interesting read! x

  2. Love what you are doing. You are really listening to peoples bodies and helping them heal on so many levels.

  3. Great information. I had never heard of a vampire facial so it was interesting to learn about! I love the tips at the end. I for one am guilty of not taking in enough fluids so I’m definitely going to try to make a conscious effort to do so.

  4. Interesting approach. So often we don’t look at things holistically. Treating one symptom doesn’t always fix the problem.

  5. I think I need to detox! Lots of great info, thanks!

  6. I’m so happy to see an option that’s not another gimmick. I like that this is taking a holistic approach. You have to figure out why you’re gaining weight in the first place. So many people neglect to figure that part out.

  7. I love how you talk about working on the root of the problem, not just the symptoms. This is a great read with lots of interesting information. Thanks!
