Allergy Testing 

At the Grove, we prioritize serving our community to the best of our abilities. We understand that allergies are a BIG problem here in Texas, and we want to offer solutions to help alleviate the discomfort and inconvenience caused by them.

One option that we offer is allergy testing and sublingual treatment. This testing involves a non-invasive skin test on the back, in which we test for the most prevalent allergies in our area. Once identified, we can create a specialized allergy serum that is placed under your tongue daily which can help decrease your body's sensitivity to some of the most common environmental allergens in the area. By doing so, you can potentially experience fewer allergy symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, and congestion.

We believe that it's crucial to educate our patients on the different treatment options available to them. Allergy serums are a form of immunotherapy that work by introducing small amounts of allergens into your body over time. This gradual exposure can help your body build up a tolerance to these allergens, ultimately reducing your symptoms.

If you're interested in learning more about allergy serums or other allergy treatments, please don't hesitate to schedule an appointment with one of our healthcare providers. We are committed to providing you with the care and support you need to live your healthiest life.

Medical Grade SkinCare

The importance of medical-grade skincare and what sets it apart from regular skincare cannot be overstated. Medical-grade skincare is designed to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin, providing effective and long-lasting results. It contains a higher concentration of active ingredients, which are carefully formulated and tested to ensure their safety and efficacy.

In contrast, regular skincare products that you can find in drugstores or department stores may not have the same level of potency or effectiveness. They are not subject to the same rigorous testing and regulations as medical-grade products.

Investing in medical-grade skincare can make a significant difference in the health and appearance of your skin. Consult with a skincare professional to learn more about the benefits and find products that are tailored to your skin's specific needs.

The Grove is proud to announce a line of medical-grade skincare products designed to complement our laser treatment offerings, Alma CBD Skin Care Line. These products will help protect your investment and help you achieve your desired skincare goals. Available in clinic now, all of the products are great, but Brittany's favorites are the brightening serum and the skin hydrator!

Screen Time

Spending too much time in front of screens, whether it's a computer, phone, or TV can have negative effects on your health. One of the most significant impacts is on your sleep. The blue light emitted by screens can suppress the hormone melatonin, which your body naturally produces to regulate your internal clock. When you disrupt this natural process, it can lead to difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, resulting in poor quality sleep overall.

But that's not all. Too much screen time can also affect your mood and cognitive abilities. Studies have shown that excessive screen time can lead to increased feelings of anxiety and depression, as well as decreased attention span, memory, and critical thinking skills.

It's important to be mindful of the amount of time you spend in front of screens and take steps to reduce it when possible. Some suggestions include taking regular breaks, setting limits on your screen time, and engaging in alternative activities such as reading or spending time outdoors. By prioritizing your health and wellbeing, you can mitigate the negative effects of excessive screen time and live a healthier, more balanced life.

That is all for now from The Grove, thank you for letting us be part of your healthcare team.
