We are Vivacity Life Center – a health and wellness medical practice located in Stamford, CT. We offer men and women throughout NY and CT – who are age 30 and older – the services they need to live with maximum vitality.
Look, it’s no secret that as we age we experience certain physical changes which are unwelcomed and, more importantly, unnecessary. These changes are unwelcomed as they can include: a drop in energy levels, excess weight gain, drop in lean muscle mass, poor sleep quality, joint pain, poor libido, diminished sexual performance and the list can go on and on.
Sure, these physical changes are unwelcomed but how can they be unnecessary? If these changes are a part of aging, then how can they be described as unnecessary? Through a regimen of testosterone replacement therapy, all of your unwanted, unwelcomed signs and symptoms of aging can potentially be wiped out.
Testosterone is the very essence of manliness. This is the hormone that plays a major role in a man’s sexual function, fertility, disposition and body composition. In men, as they age, the body’s ability to naturally produce normal testosterone levels declines. This is unfortunately a normal part of life for men.
Don’t be fooled by off-the-shelf or “one size fits all” solutions. No such thing exists. You may hear radio ads touting the viability of commercially available supplements but none of them work. None of these “miracle” pills can replace the testosterone that your body is no longer producing.
The only viable solution is bio-identical testosterone replacement therapy. The therapy is doctor prescribed and is derived from 100% natural components. And, it’s “bio-identical” meaning that the therapy is a molecule for molecule match to the testosterone that your body naturally produces – your body cannot tell the difference between the testosterone replacement therapy and its own testosterone.
Low testosterone levels are diagnosed through a blood test. The blood evaluation will identify a number of important levels of testosterone and other codes in the blood stream. This test is typically performed in the morning as it is important to have not eaten any solid food 12-14 hours prior to the test. It can be somewhat difficult to distinguish signs of low testosterone from other medication side effects or other medical conditions. For that reason, testosterone replacement therapy can only be prescribed by a licensed physician.
Our doctors will diagnose your condition, examine your blood test results and our RN will perform a physical exam. Using this information, your eligibility for testosterone replacement therapy will be determined and a prescription can then be written.
An important part of the protocol is to get your blood re-tested every 3 months. It is part of the medication management process to make sure your testosterone replacement therapy and T levels are within an acceptable range. Our physicians manage the entire process and provide each of our clients with their undivided attention. Our physicians will adjust your testosterone replacement therapy accordingly when and where needed.
And, the best part is, the testosterone replacement therapy protocol that we offer is second to none and surprisingly affordable.

Why is this a good question for men to be asking? Well, as men age, they will experience a natural decline in testosterone levels (a condition known as Andropause). And as T levels decline, a number of unwanted signs and symptoms of aging will crop up. These unwatned signs and symptoms can include –
And the above are only some of the more obvious detriments of lower testosterone levels in men. Some of what may not be readily apparent is low T levels can be responsible for osteoporosis and even Alzheimer’s Disease. Due to testosterone being primarily responsible for the health of the prostate, lower testosterone levels also put men at higher risk of prostate cancer.
So as you can see for yourself, testosterone is not only the building blocks of your manhood, a drop in testosterone levels is also risky to your overall health. The real question then becomes this: if you are a man in your 30’s or older, have you gotten your T levels checked? Are you in need of testosterone replacement therapy?
Look, none of us know how much time we have on this planet. But what we do know is that whatever time we do have should be lived with maximum vitality and vigor. Today’s 50’s is yesterday’s 30’s. Today’s 60’s is yesterday’s 40’s. We see it all around us – men are living active, vibrant lives well into their 70’s and beyond.
And that can be you. You can easily turn back the hands of time on the way you look and feel with a physician managed, testosterone replacement therapy protocol. YOU can easily live an explosive life and prove to yourself and all of those around you that age truly is nothing but a number. Here’s the kicker though, you have to do something about it starting now. You cannot wait until you’re in your 60’s and 70’s then decide to do something about your overall health. What you’d want to do – NEED to do in fact – is that take that kind of health and vitality with you into your later years.
We are Vivacity Life Center and we provide men throughout Connecticut and New York with the testosterone replacement therapy they need. We also serve the residents of New York with testosterone replacement therapy.
Our intake protocol is really very simple and involves 3 easy steps –

Is Botox becoming a “miracle drug”? Do the uses for Botox now stretch far beyond aesthetic; to simply smooth out wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes? The answer, amazingly, is big fat YES.
As a recent TIME magazine article points out, Botox is now being used and prescribed by licensed physicians for a wide variety of medical issues. From helping to cure depression, excessive sweating, migraine headaches, erectile dysfunction and even drooling – Botox is being recognized as the solution for an extraordinarily wide variety of human conditions.
Even though the FDA had approved Botox for aesthetic use to help smooth out lines and wrinkles in the face, once a medication is FDA approved it can then be legally used in any way that a licensed physician sees fit. Through research and development at Allergan (the makers of Botox) and experimentation by doctors, more and more uses for the drug are being discovered and accepted.
So the jury is no longer out on the effectiveness of Botox. There is no doubt that it is an effective product to help eliminate wrinkles and the medical community is accepting and even embracing its other uses.
If you live in the Connecticut and New York area – including Long Island and parts of New England – Vivacity Life Center is your very own stop for all of your Botox needs. Whether you need a Botox procedure to smooth out those wrinkles or if your physician is recommending it to solve other medical issues, our medical professionals are the best in the business.
For new patients, we offer very favorable procedure pricing incentives. If you are new to Botox procedures or have had the injections preformed previously and are looking for a new and better office that can service your requirements then, well…here we are.
We will let our reputation speak for itself. We invite you to check our client ratings and feedback scores on our Google business page, our Facebook page and even on Groupon and Living social. You will see that Vivacity Life Center has 95-100% positive feedback across the board. And speaking of Groupon and Living Social, even though we no longer offer Groupon Botox deals or Living Social Botox deals, we do offer new client incentive pricing.
In fact, when looking into offices that offer botox service on Groupon or Living Social, it is very important to make sure that the business offering the deal is using legitimate Allergan, FDA approved Botox. It is easy enough for an office to import illegal, much cheaper botox from overseas so please…be cautious. In this instance, cost of service should be far from the top of your priority list. Make sure the office is clean and professional, make sure the medical professional performing the injections is experienced and has a good reputation and make sure REAL botox is being used.
If you live in NY or CT, out on Long Island or other parts of New England then you can count on Vivacity Life Center to deliver the best botox service to be found anywhere in the area.
To receive more information on our Botox injection services please call our office for a free, no obligation consultation. We’ll be happy to answer all of your questions and guide you toward the next steps that best suit your needs. Call now, our knowledgeable staff is waiting to hear from you: 203-614-8600
That is a question many people ask but, unfortunately for most of them, there is no good answer. Straight human growth hormone injections are illegal for off label use. In some instances a Dr does have the authority to write an HGH prescription for his or her patients but these instances are very tightly regulated.
So what are these instances? When can a physician legally and ethically prescribe human growth hormone? Well, there are certain patients that require this therapy. A few examples that come to mind would be for a child with physical developmental issues. It is also legal – for the most part – for an AIDS patient to be eligible for a human growth hormone therapy prescription.
But what about the rest of us? After all, an HGH prescription can help all men and women in so many different, positive ways. Some of what human growth hormone injections can help with include a rapid restoration of vitality, a sharp boost in energy, accelerated fat burning, improved muscle tone and bone density, smoother skin and thicker hair and even improved libido and sexual performance.
Even though how to get Dr prescribed human growth hormone (HGH) for the average man or woman is an almost impossible question to answer, we at Vivacity Life Center have the next best thing!
We offer a therapy which is 100% legal and ethical to prescribe to anyone and everyone who wants to improve the overall quality of their life. And this therapy is called Sermorelin!
Sermorelin is a GHRH (growth hormone releasing hormone) and what this therapy does is it stimulates the pituitary gland to naturally boost the body’s production of human growth hormone. The patient will do an injection each night – typically 300iu of constituted Sermorelin – prior to bedtime. Sermorelin will work most effectively in a state of REM sleep and in fact, Sermorelin helps to improve a quality deep sleep.
Sermorelin therapy is not an overnight miracle – it is a “miracle” therapy in that it can turn back the hands of time on how you look and feel – but it does not work overnight but rather, over time.
Although results will vary from one patient to the next, one of the initial benefits one would typically experience is they’ll start getting a sound, more restful sleep. But over time, the benefits of Sermorelin therapy will become appreciably noticed.
Here is some of what you can expect from Sermorelin therapy (but again, each patient reacts differently): brain fog will clear, healthier looking and feeling skin, increased bone density and muscle mass, improvement in libido and sexual performance, improved energy levels and an overall boost in physical performance and quality of life.
Our Sermorelin growth hormone therapy is prescribed by our team of physicians and is determined on a patient by patient basis. Our physicians will determine need based on blood testing, physical exam and medical intake. Sermorelin is NOT an OTC medication. Your therapy prescription will be filled specifically for you through one of our compounding pharmacies domiciled right here in the USA. This is important for you to know so you understand that the medication is created, dispensed and dosed under the watchful eye of the FDA.
So, if the question you’ve been asking is where can I get a prescription for human growth hormone, the answer is…not at Vivacity Life Center. BUT, we do have the next best thing and it’s called Sermorelin. If you’d like more info on this “fountain of youth” therapy, call our office now to receive a free, no obligation telephone consultation and let us help you to determine if Sermorelin growth hormone therapy is right for you. We’re standing by and waiting to hear from you: 203-614-8600
Low Testosterone Therapy – A Primer for Men Who Wish to Raise Their Quality of Life
Have you not been feeling “yourself” lately?
Have you been gaining excessive weight despite maintaining a decent diet and getting sufficient exercise?
Has your sex drive – and worse yet, your sexual performance – taken a dip? Perhaps your erections are not as strong or long lasting as they once were…
Are you not getting a good night sleep? Been more irritable? Or feeling run down by late afternoon?
Has getting older been making you feel old?
If you answered yes to even one of these questions then it’s time for you to discover the benefits of low testosterone therapy – also commonly referred to as LOW-T therapy.
A decline in the natural production of testosterone in men is unfortunately a fact of life. Nobody can dodge this bullet – as men age their testosterone production drops. That’s it. Period. End of story. This is a definite. What is not a definite is whether or not you choose to tolerate it. Will you merely accept a drop in the quality of your life as your testosterone levels drop or will you choose to do something about it?
Because the truth is, through bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, you can turn feeling older back into feeling younger again. How, you may ask? Well, testosterone is mission critical to your feeling youthful and mission critical to your manhood. Restore your T levels to when you were 10-20 years younger and you will feel 10-20 years younger.
What we’re talking about here is “bio-identical” hormone replacement. What this means is the therapy – derived from all natural, green substances – is a molecule for molecule match to the hormones your body naturally produces. Your body cannot tell the difference between the therapy and the testosterone it would naturally produce.
There is no “one size fits all” solution to restoring testosterone levels. There is no magic pill you can buy off the shelf at your local CVS or GNC that will turn back the hands of time. The only legitimate form of testosterone replacement therapy is a physician prescribed medication.
We are Vivacity Life Center located in Stamford, CT providing the entire New York and Connecticut area with Low-T therapy second to none. The intake protocol for our services is very simple and remarkably affordable. Here are the steps –
It’s as simple as that!

We will be happy to provide you with a free, no obligation consultation and help you to make a decision that best suits your needs.
Whether you live in or around the New York City area or the suburbs in Westchester or Fairfield Counties or even out on Long Island, Vivacity Life Center is just a short drive away.
We are the premier age management health and wellness practice for the entire NY, CT, NJ tri-state region. But hold on; let’s just take a quick step back. What exactly is an “age management health and wellness practice”?
Well, as we age we tend to experience a number of unwanted signs and symptoms of getting older. These signs and symptoms include – among other things – a drop in energy levels and poor sleep quality. (There are many, many other unwanted “conditions” that typically go along with an aging body, the aforementioned are a pretty common two.)
We will discuss in future articles all of the services we offer to help men and women better cope with aging, but in this article, we will discuss IV Vitamin Drip Therapy. A Vitamin IV Drip is a liquid multi-vitamin placed inside of a standard IV bag. The entire vitamin cocktail is then administered directly into the blood stream via a standard catheter drip. There are numerous benefits to this therapy but 2 of the major benefits you can expect to receive are an immediate jump in your energy levels and the ability to get a much more sound night’s sleep.
But why? Why take multi vitamins in this way? Why not just stroll into CVS and by some of the shelf multi vitamin in pill form? The answer to this question is very simple; it’s because off the shelf vitamins suck. They are a useless waste of time and money.
Have you ever taken a multi-vitamin? If you have then when going to the bathroom you’ve undoubtedly seen your urine run a very bright yellow. And why does your urine run such a bright color of yellow? Well, the reason is because you are literally pissing away most of the nutrients from those pills that your body simply couldn’t absorb. When taking multi-vitamins orally your body is only capable of absorbing maybe 25% of the nutrients. And while we’re talking about oral ingestion of vitamins, plenty of fresh fruits and veggies should be a very important part of anybody’s diet, but again, the body can only absorb about 25% of the nutrients from a plant based diet.
Because the IV Vitamin Drip is delivered directly into the blood stream, there is 100% absorption of every last drop of the beneficial cocktail. Think about that – your body will absorb completely every bit of the vitamins and nutrients delivered in the drip. And THAT, my friend, is the primary benefit to the drip (also frequently referred to as The Myer’s Cocktail).
There is an additional, very significant benefit to the IV Vitamin Cocktail and that is hydration. Because this vitamin cocktail is administered from an IV bag, your body will also receive the hydration inherent in taking an IV drip.
But, does the Vitamin Drip make dollars and cents? Absolutely yes it does! Think of it this way: what would a “good quality” oral multi-vitamin cost you? Say $100/month? At $100 a month for a multi, with an only 25% absorption rate, you would need to take those vitamins continuously for 4 months to essentially receive 100% benefit. Whereas with an IV Vitamin Therapy Drip – at 100% absorption each time you receive one – you would only need to do it 1 time per month. At a base price of $175 for the drip you can see it makes way more sense.
To experience the essential benefits of the IV Vitamin Drip Therapy for yourself, call Vivacity Life Center now at 203-614-8600
It’s a fact of nature that a man’s natural production of testosterone begins a steady decline in his early twenties and continues throughout the rest of his life. Although the early 20’s is not a hard and fast “rule of nature”, what is absolute is the fact that testosterone production does drop in men. This drop in testosterone production is commonly termed “andropause” – the male counterpart to a woman’s menopause.
Andropause in men is largely responsible for many of the unwanted signs and symptoms of aging. These unwanted signs and symptoms can include –
And the above is just a partial list of what a man will experience as he ages. Here’s the good news, tolerating these unwanted signs and symptoms of an aging body are a choice. Through a testosterone replacement therapy regimen, you can halt the decline and literally turn back the hands of time.
You need to know that there is no “off the shelf” solution to replacing the loss of testosterone. AndroGel, GNC supplements or any other “miracle” product you may’ve heard of on the radio – it’s all nonsense. There is no one-size-fits-all solution to restoring your more youthful testosterone levels.
The testosterone replacement therapy offered by Vivacity Life Center of Stamford, CT – a physician managed medical office who specializes in addressing LOW T therapy – falls under the definition of “bio-identical”. What this means – bio-identical – is that the therapy medication is an identical match to the testosterone that your body naturally produces. It is a molecule for molecule match. Your body cannot tell the difference between the therapy medication and the testosterone that is naturally produced.
The testosterone medication offered by Vivacity Life Center is by physician prescription only. Each and every patient receives personal care and a prescription custom tailored to specific, individual needs. And the best part? The bio-identical hormone replacement therapy offered by Vivacity is extraordinarily affordable. Felling better and living with maximum vitality should not be available to only the elite.
If you live in the New York or Connecticut area, Vivacity is the Low Testosterone medical center for you. When you call our office you will be given a free, no obligation telephone consultation. And, in the event you decide that you do want to move forward with a therapy regimen then your required blood work will be covered by health insurance.

It’s not the years in your life that matter most but rather, the life in your years!
If you have the desire to live with maximum health and vitality, then Vivacity Life Center offers the services to help you do it!
Most people want to have a trim, healthy body but not many know how to get it and keep it. We at Vivacity Life Center offer the services you need to look and feel your best.
Here’s what we can do for you to help you achieve the health and wellbeing you’re looking for to make sure you’re living your best life:
Lipotropic Skinny Shots – An all natural, no stimulant metabolism boost. Our skinny shot is designed to work alongside your current workout regimen. *It contains lipotropic “fat loving” amino acids to help you shed those stubborn pounds. Skinny shots are not intended for those patients looking for major weight loss. Are you looking for major weight loss? See below…
Guided Weight Management and Nutrition – If you struggle to achieve your ideal weight and body type then your difficulties can most likely be tied to underlying thyroid issues. Through a blood test analysis, our in house diet and nutrition expert – working alongside our medical director – can help you finally get to the bottom of weight loss difficulties.
IV Vitamin Therapy – Your body craves and is constantly depleting the essential vitamins and nutrients it needs to operate at a maximum level. This in turn leaves your body vitamin deficient. An IV vitamin drip is a superior way of providing your body with the fuel it needs.
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy – As we age our hormones decline and become imbalanced which in turn causes the many unwanted signs and symptoms of aging; excessive weight gain, poor sleep quality, drop in libido and performance and irritability just to name a few. When you restore and balance your hormones to when you were much younger then you’ll start to feel and perform much younger too.
Growth Hormone Therapy – This therapy stimulates your pituitary to naturally boost growth hormone production. An increase in growth hormone will boost your energy levels, help build lean muscle, improve memory and restore an overall sense of health and wellbeing.
Internal Detox – We all carry an internal toxic burden. The foods we eat, the drinks we consume and the air we breathe all add to this burden. Use a “green”, all natural 14 day Paleo program to flush that burden away. You can expect to see clearer skin, eliminate brain fog, improve sleep quality, and even drop some weight.
Injectable Cosmetics – botox to smooth out those wrinkles and Juvederm to add volume to your cheeks and filling in those lines can have you looking years younger.
We are currently offering incentive pricing on all of these terrific services for new patients. We at Vivacity Life Center sincerely want to help you achieve the ideal health and wellbeing you deserve.
Remember, it’s not the years in your life that matter most but rather, the life in your years. Don’t you deserve to live with maximum vitality and vigor?
Call us now and let us help you get there: 203-614-8600
* Remember, there is no safe pill; fad diet or shot that will help you obtain your goal weight like proper diet and exercise can.
As the name implies, IV Vitamin Therapy is a method of getting the essential vitamins and minerals your body craves via a standard IV drip. A cocktail of liquid vitamins is placed into an IV bag and administered directly into your blood stream. Some of what is included in the drip is vitamin C, B complex and vitamins B5 and B12 (among other essential nutrients).
In the 1960’s a physician from the state of Maryland – Dr John Myers – was the first to put a cocktail of liquid vitamins into an IV bag. The procedure quickly became known as a “Myers’ Cocktail”. Liquid vitamins were pretty commonplace at the time but the practice of blending them all together and delivering them as a drip is credited to Dr Myers.
Well, firstly, your body is constantly using and depleting vitamins therefore always leaving your body vitamin deficient. So you NEED to provide yourself with these essential nutrients. Trying to get these nutrients orally by taking multi vitamins is a waste of both time and money. Did you ever wonder why your urine runs so bright yellow when taking multi vitamins? It’s because you are literally pissing away most of the nutrients. Orally, your body will only absorb about 25% of the nutrients from multis. Even though it is always a good idea to consume plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, your body will only absorb – again – about 25% of the available nutrients from a plant based diet.
With an IV Vitamin Drip Therapy – because it is delivered directly into your blood stream – there will be 100% absorption of all the essential vitamins and minerals your body craves.
There are only 2 (what can be considered extremely minor) downsides to IV vitamins. First is the therapy drips into your blood stream through a catheter. The catheter placed into your vein with a needle injection. So, if you’re needle phobic you’ll have to get over it. That brief moment of discomfort is a teeny price to pay for the long term benefits the IV Vitamin Therapy will deliver. The second “downside” is the drip will take some time. The standard therapy drips from 250cc IV bag which generally takes 20 – 25 minutes. The size of the bag can be upgraded to a 500cc or 1000cc which will provide your body with a much greater level of hydration. So, the bigger the bag the longer the drip will take.
And speaking of upgrades, the base IV Vitamin Therapy is a combination of 8 essential vitamins and minerals. Additional nutrients can be added to the cocktail such as glutathione – an awesome anti-oxidant – or L-carnitine or argentine – both great nutrients to accelerate fat loss.

Groupon: a necessary evil for a small business…a boon for the consumer. At least…that’s the way the Groupon relationship with buyer and seller is supposed to start out. But, if we’re all being “normal” about it, then, over time, Groupon should become a boon to the small business and a gateway to a great product or service for the consumer.
How, you may ask? Allow me please to explain…
Firstly, whoever conceived Groupon and stuck their neck out to make the site a reality had a pretty big, brass set. How in the heck did this person think that they’d convince business owners to offer their products and services to the public at deep discounts and then take up to 50% of the sale on top of it??
After all, every dime of revenue is extremely important to a small business. So to charge 30 – 50% less for a product or service on Groupon and give up about half the sale on top of that seems to be a losing business strategy.
Dig a little deeper however – go just below the surface – and as a business owner Groupon may start to make sense. Every business owner needs to make an investment into marketing and customer/client acquisition. So, to take a loss upfront on the sale of a Groupon voucher with the prospect of turning those buyers into long term clients, then one can see the wisdom in posting deals on Groupon.
The problem with offering a deal on Groupon is when people think that they can come back time and again by purchasing additional Groupon vouchers.
What the buying public needs to understand is that offering a Groupon deal is a good way for a business to introduce the consumer to their product or service. But that’s where it starts and ends – it makes sense to take the upfront loss to bring a new client through the door. However, it is impossible for a business to operate successfully on allowing the same person back into their store on additional vouchers.
One voucher per consumer – that’s it, end of story.
We are an age management and aesthetics practice located in downtown Stamford, CT. We used to offer botox and juvederm dermal filler service through selling Groupon vouchers. And, no regrets, it served its purpose; it was great way to bring new people through our door.
The problems for us arose when we started routinely getting calls from repeat clients who thought they’d be able to come back in on yet another Groupon voucher. Even though the fine print of the offer clearly stated that we would only allow one voucher per buyer, buyers frequently either didn’t see it or they did…but didn’t give a damn about that pesky little detail.
There are many people who had come into our practice through Groupon who are now steady clients who don’t mind paying a fair price for the fantastic service we offer.
Then you have what are called “Groupon Jumpers”. These are people who don’t care who is sticking needles in their face injecting a toxin (that’s what botox is – it’s a toxin – thus the “tox” in the name “botox”). All a Groupon Jumper cares about is paying as low a price as possible.
As mentioned earlier, it is impossible for a business to operate successfully on repeatedly accepting Groupon vouchers from the same people. So what a Groupon Jumper will do is continually go back to groupon.com and buy a voucher for an office they have not yet been to. A jumper will even drive hours, again, as long as they’re paying as low a price as possible.
So, to those who are loyal to our office and come back to us willing to pay a fair price for our botox and dermal filler service – THANK YOU! We treasure your business! To those who would rather jump around always chasing after a lower Groupon price – we’ll see you soon! Because you can only jump around so much and drive so far. So, you will be back and we can’t wait to see you again!
