As Seen:



As we get older, we begin to feel less like ourselves. Our energy levels decrease, our desire fades, our ability to focus may get cloudy, our moods and emotions may seem to be set on “random” or “shuffle”, some people may begin to experience hot and cold flashes. We at The Youth Fountain don’t believe you should have to accept getting older and feeling older as a natural process of aging. If you choose to seek treatment, we are here to help.


How Is BHRT Different From Traditional HRT? Traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) uses synthetic hormones that raises your blood levels to supra-physiologic levels. This in-turn sets off a natural negative feedback by the body which further depresses the body’s own production of the hormones. Since these hormones are synthetic, there are many potentially unwanted side-effects and possible dangers that have scared off too many patients from seeking treatment. BHRT at The Youth Fountain uses hormones that are identical to what your body makes. These hormones can be applied directly to the skin in the form of a cream. The levels can be controlled better than their synthetic counterparts. This allows for a more physiologic and natural replacement that is safer than traditional HRT.

Aging should be looked at as a disease. Preventable and reversible. Just as we treat diabetes and high blood pressure, we should treat aging. We can treat all hormone deficiencies with BHRT. We can help if you have an under active thyroid, low testosterone levels, imbalanced estrogen and progesterone levels, dysfunctional adrenal gland or low levels of growth hormone in both men and women.


BHRT is relatively safe when done under the guidance of a qualified physician. Patients with a personal history of cancer may not be able to undergo BHRT but can have other options to balance their hormone levels. Dr. Shakov will discuss all these options with you as he creates you a personalized treatment plan at The Youth Fountain.


If you are doing research on the best anti-aging products you will see many websites talk about peptides and how beneficial they are. But what are peptides and how are they used in anti-aging and hormone replacement?


Peptides are amino acids that are linked together by bonds. They are found in every cell and tissue in the body. Peptides perform many functions that are essential in our life. Some of the well-known peptides are hormones:

  • ACTH
  • Growth Hormone
  • Insulin
  • Oxytocin
  • Parathyroid hormone

There are many more peptides, and each serves a distinct function in the body.


As part of your anti-aging regimen, Dr. Shakov may recommend one or more peptides depending on the indication. As a replacement for growth hormone, Dr. Shakov will use peptides like CJC and Ipamorelin or Sermorelin.

If you are recovering from injuries or have intestinal disorders, he may recommend BPC-157. For libido and erectile dysfunction, PT-141 may be useful.

If you have trouble concentrating or memory, nootropics like Cerbrolysin, Selank, and Semax may be useful.

Peptides may help with weight loss and muscle building. The most important point with peptides is that you should not experiment on yourself using compounds made by experimental sites that may not have any safety controls or sterility.

At The Youth Fountain, you will be guaranteed that all peptides come from a compound pharmacy and that Dr. Shakov will appropriately select the correct one for the indication.


Dr. Rada Shakov and Dr. Emil Shakov are the finest doctors around. They are not only knowledgable in their field but are also incredibly kind, helpful, and care tremendously about their patients. So happy with my outcome and I would highly recommend them and their wonderful office staff to anyone. I'm so glad I found them!


I cannot recommend the youth fountain enough. It was my first time getting fillers, and they made me feel more comfortable than any of my doctors ever have! They explained everything, and didn't even bat an eye at my anxiety. If it's you're first time, or you're experienced, the youth fountain is the place to go!!
