Refine’s Founder Dr. Reshma Vasanwala’s health challenge Inspired her to turn to anti- aging therapies.
For 20 years Dr Reshma Vasanwala dedicated her professional life to Internal medicine and Acute hospital care. When she started to have severe unexplained fatigue, it forced her to take time off. She began expanding her field of knowledge beyond “standard” medical care. After months of being dismissed and misdiagnosed, she learned about bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and testosterone therapy at an Anti-Aging Medicine conference. Since being effectively treated with testosterone therapy and getting a correct diagnosis of autoimmune disease she noticed amazing positive changes in how she felt.
Inspired by experiencing these results and with newfound enthusiasm and energy, Dr. Vasanwala threw herself into learning everything she could about HRT and the science of Anti-Aging treatments. She completed a prestigious fellowship from A4M in Anti-Aging, Functional, and Regenerative medicine. She got certified in Hormone pellet therapy, IV Vitamin therapies, Ozone therapy, PRP treatments, and Peptide therapy. She also received advanced training in Aesthetic medicine and loves attending educational conferences to learn about new advances.
Through dedication, refinement, and hard work, Dr. Vasanwala transformed herself into an expert in the Anti-Aging field. She understands the struggles patient’s face in trying to find answers and the limitations of standard medical care. Refine Medicine has those answers. With 20 years of clinical experience and board certifications in Internal Medicine and Anti Aging and Regenerative Medicine. Dr. Reshma Vasanwala provides personalized and expert care in the Anti Aging and Aesthetics field.

Give Your Wrinkles a Rest
Botox and Dysport are incredible anti-aging tools called neuromodulators that can reduce wrinkles, erase fine lines, and let you enjoy a worried-free look. Neuromodulators work by relaxing the muscles beneath the skin that cause “dynamic wrinkles,” or wrinkles that happen when you move your face in the same pattern repeatedly. By forcing these muscles to relax, Dysport or Botox can give the wrinkles above them a chance to rest, flattening out the creases made from repeated folding of the skin. Learn more about the amazing benefits of Botox or Dysport with an appointment at Refine Anti Aging!Botox
Your Level Best
As we age, our bodies slow down the production of key nutrients, hormones, and chemicals that keep us looking and feeling youthful. However, this change does not have to be permanent! Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy uses naturally-produced plant hormones that are virtually identical to the ones you’ve lost over the years. Not only that, but these hormones can be custom compounded to your unique needs, making BHRT one of the most effective and refined ways to combat the effects of aging. If you’ve been feeling sluggish, worn out, or like you’ve lost your edge, BHRT could be part of your solution.BHRT in Oakland
Treatment that keeps up with you
Modern science has made incredible advances in how we can reduce the effects of aging and in how we administer those treatments. One such advancement is hormone pellet therapy. Hormone pellet therapy gets rid of the mess of hormone creams or the inconsistency of hormone shots. With pellet therapy, the hormone pellets stay in your body, which slowly absorbs them over time as they are released. This provides a consistent release of hormones, improving mood stability and effectiveness of treatment. They even release more treatment in periods of intense exertion or physical activity — just like your natural hormone glands!

Beautiful Dreams Fulfilled
Dermal fillers are like your fairy godmother in a vial. Just make a wish (more volume in the lips or cheeks, reduced wrinkles, a more full and youthful appearance), and — *poof* — dermal fillers give you the results you want instantly! Only, unlike that clunky glass slipper, these results will last long past midnight. Depending on the amount of filler and location, dermal fillers like Juvederm fillers for volume loss can last up to a year or longer from a single treatment.

Let Your Body Do The Work
Your body is an incredible collaboration of billions of cells, doing all they can to keep the team moving and healthy. Over time, those cells change. They get older and stop producing many of the key building blocks of youthful skin, like collagen and elastin. RF microneedling re-energizes your skin at the cellular level, creating channels of rejuvenating collagen that spread throughout the treatment area. Radiofrequency energy further stimulates this effect, resulting in fewer wrinkles, tighter skin, and improved collagen production. Give your cells the playbook for a refined look with RF microneedling at Refine Anti-Aging Medicine and Aesthetics!RF Microneedling
The Power of PRP
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a revolutionary treatment that harnesses the growth factors from the platelets in your blood to re-energize your body’s ability to create youthful-looking skin. It boosts production of collagen and elastin, reduces visible signs of aging, and creates a healthy glow. PRP treatments offer a potent non-surgical alternative to plastic surgery. Dr. Vasanwala is a PRP treatment expert who uses the serums in multiple treatments, from facial aesthetics and hair restoration to pain management and sexual wellness.

“Dr. Vasanwala was recommended to me by a good friend because I was wanting to explore options for addressing my aging skin. Dr. Vasanwala was kind, patient, and knowledgeable about her products and made recommendations that would appropriately meet my needs. She suggested a balanced introduction to injectables that resulted in a natural, refreshed look. The changes are so subtle that most people haven't noticed, but I notice every time I look in the mirror.”
“Dr. Reshma Vasanwala is absolutely AMAZING! She is very welcoming and kind, yet professional and knowledgeable. This woman has a true passion for helping people which is why I am a regular. Her office is exceptionally modern and clean, her prices are very fair and not over-inflated like many other places. After hormone therapy with her, I have felt myself to be more stable, youthful, happy, content and even 10lbs lighter than I was before. THis woman changed my life. COME HERE!”
“Going to see Dr. Reshma is like having a visit with your best friend, except you leave looking and feeling more beautiful and rejuvenated. It's obvious that Dr. Reshma is very passionate about what she does. She will spend time answering any questions you may have and will explain how the procedure will work. She'll take her time making sure that the most optimal results are achieved and will follow up to make sure everything worked out as desired. She's extremely knowledgeable in the aesthetics field and I always trust her with her recommendations. I truly enjoy visiting Dr. Reshma!”
"I had 35 units of Botox done by Dr. Vasanwala on my forehead, frown lines, and crow's feet. About five days later, my forehead and crow’s feet were noticeably smoother, and I looked like I had a month of great sleep! I have done Botox several times before with other providers, after which my face would look frozen. But after my procedure with Dr. Vasanwala, I am still able to lift my eyebrows and forehead without forming wrinkles. I look natural, and not overdone."
"I have been on Testosterone replacement under Dr. Vasanwala's care for the last year. I turned 50 this year and am feeling better now than I have in a long time. I lost 15 pounds, have more energy and motivation to exercise, and my sleep has improved. I am really grateful to be feeling like myself again. I can't recommend Dr. Vasanwala highly enough!"
