Functional Medicine at Meeting Point Health aims at real healing by first finding the root cause. We understand that no health concern exists in a vacuum; an aesthetic issue affects your mind and spirit. Many times, that will mean we are first treating you from the inside out, at the cellular level. However, that process can take time as we find the root causes and regenerate your cells. The reality is sometimes we need to feel better now, and that means treating from the outside in, with aesthetic medicine. Through our many holistic procedures at Meeting Point Health, we aim to help you feel more aligned and rejuvenated in your own skin. The initial process of self-care in doing a cosmetic treatment can motivate us to change our lifestyles and incorporate daily health practices we never thought possible. A wonderful feedback loop is created that starts the healing cascade and helps us feel at home in our bodies again.
Dr. Stephen Matta, DO, MBA, CAQSM, and Mary Anne Matta, MS, MA, LAC, take an East-meets-West approach to their medicine, utilizing functional, anti-aging medicine to discover the root cause of your issues. When addressing an aesthetic issue, we will address issues related to chronic inflammation as well as aging (nutrition, sleep, hormones, toxicity, etc.).
We are extremely excited to discuss our role in the world of anti-aging and aesthetics. Similar to our growth in the fields of functional medicine and regenerative medicine, the prevalent thing we noticed was a lack of a functional and integrative approach to aesthetics. Treatments and services being offered in this field appear to be neglecting the root cause and seldom employ the body’s own regenerative capabilities. With this in mind, it is important to us that Meeting Point Health provides opportunities for individuals who have a desire to feel amazing in their skin regardless of their age to have a safe place where they would receive an integrative natural approach, addressing the root cause, and be treated like family.
In our integrative practice of medicine, we often treat individuals with difficult cosmetic conditions such as acne scarring, eczema, psoriasis, and melasma, all of which most certainly require an integrative approach to address metabolic and hormonal issues, but also require treatments and techniques that are fast-acting. If you have ever suffered from one of these conditions, you know how demoralizing and debilitating it is to wear your illness on your skin. Maybe you’ve had hair loss, spider veins, toenail fungus, warts, or excessive sweating and found no relief. For many of these issues, we are able to offer therapies with quick results, little to no pain and virtually no downtime. How exciting is that!
Additionally, as we do with all of our other therapies, we thoroughly research all cosmetic injectables and devices we use and dose properly to ensure a positive result and a natural look. If we don’t offer it or suggest it, it is because we feel it is not safe or too inflammatory. We also invest in the techniques and devices that work on ALL skin types, not just light skin. Our goal at Meeting Point Health is to have a clinic that stands uniquely in a saturated market by providing a regenerative holistic perspective within the field of aesthetics.
Anti-aging and Aesthetic treatments have a wide range of utility, encompassing many products and services dedicated towards feeling better in your skin. Some of our common treatments include:
Meeting Point provides these services and many more with the goal of regenerating your body’s own cells using cutting-edge techniques like radio-frequency, PRP, stem cells, peptides, and cosmetic injectables.
Our treatments carry numerous regenerative benefits, as many of them can improve cellular health while addressing the root cause:
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is yet another treatment that has many anti-aging benefits, as it can help both men and women remedy hormone imbalances whether or not it is caused by the aging process. Benefits include improved sleep, a more balanced mood, reduced acne, more energy, and less weight gain due to hormonal imbalance.
When you come to Meeting Point Health for treatment, you receive an extensive initial evaluation which includes a 3D Scan using ultraviolet light, followed by a thorough treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. To help you get the very best results from your treatment, our healing protocol may include lifestyle changes, nutrition, supplement recommendations, and follow-up testing.
To fully prepare yourself for your appointment, there are a few things you can do to guarantee the treatment process goes as smoothly as possible. No matter what kind of treatment you are receiving, it is best to have a full picture of your medical history, medications, supplements and allergies to prevent any health complications. It can also be helpful to understand the full range of treatment you are looking for, so our skilled team knows exactly how to satisfy your needs.
From start to finish, we’ll guide you through treatment to ensure you’re never left wondering what’s going on.

Our focus is on cellular regeneration. As we age, cells all over the body stop working as hard as they used to, and eventually stop working entirely, decreasing production of collagen, hormones, muscle and connective tissue; Our regenerative aesthetic treatments work to stimulate these cells so they can start working like they did years ago, in turn helping your body look and feel 10 years younger.
There is rarely a specific age that is ideal for anti-aging and aesthetic treatments, but it’s often best to only consider them after your body has fully matured. This will help prevent any complications that could be caused by further growth, and ensure you’re able to enjoy the best results possible.
It’s common for people to approach anti-aging and aesthetic medicine once they’ve reached their mid to late thirties, but treatments can be performed before and well after this point. Preventing, or aging gracefully is a common goal. At the end of the day, if your body doesn’t feel right and you’re ready to make a change, then it’s best to start treatment at Meeting Point Health right away whether you are in your 20s or your 70s!
If you’re unsure which treatment will best serve your needs, or you are unsure whether a particular treatment is safe with your condition, our nurse will consult with Dr. Matta who is always in house. Our vast knowledge of regenerative medicine techniques and constant passion for your care will guide your treatment at all times, and we’ll make adjustments whenever necessary.
