Bio

Dr. Bethea changed her practice name to Greensboro Rejuvenation, The Center for Integrative Health & Wellness, July 2016. This new brand reflects her mission to revolutionize treatment methods utilizing an integrative approach with a more pronounced presence in the OPTIMAL AGING AND WELLNESS industry. Dr. Bethea is bolstering her presence with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments for the following: joint and spine pain management, hair restoration, aesthetics (volume loss in the face, neck, upper chest, and back of hands; scar & stretch mark reduction), and sexual wellness. In addition to PRP treatments, she offers natural hormone replacement therapy, medical weight loss management, cosmetic botox, therapeutic IV C vitamin infusions, and non-PRP stem cell treatment.
