Dr. Peter Helton was born in Flint, Michigan as a first-generation Greek-American. Like many Greek families, Dr. Helton’s parents were in the restaurant business. Even though the family had their own business, it was very important to Dr. Helton’s parents that he receive an education. During his high school years, Dr. Helton expressed a natural interest in cosmetology, and enrolled in a trade school while still in high school, receiving his cosmetology license the following year. Upon high school graduation, Dr. Helton worked at several salons, which satisfied his creative side. Realizing that he wanted to expand his intellectual side as well, Dr. Helton enrolled at Michigan Technological University to become an engineer. After excelling in his first term, he determined that he truly wanted to become a doctor and changed his major to pre-med. While at Michigan Tech, Dr. Helton became involved in weight lifting and began training for the Mr. Teen Michigan bodybuilding contest, receiving second place. He still weight-trains today. In 1996, Dr. Helton entered medical school. Because of his developed interest in bodybuilding and biology, Dr. Helton was drawn to the path of Osteopathic Medicine, which is the branch of medicine that applies a strong holistic approach to the medical profession.After working his way through medical school in the cosmetology profession, Dr. Helton specialized in Emergency medicine for the following four years. Wanting to use his medical and creative ability to make people look better, Dr. Helton applied for the dermatology program in Pomona, California and followed that training with a fellowship in Cosmetic Surgery. Upon the completion of the Cosmetic Surgery fellowship, Dr. Helton felt that he could actually have a larger impact if he combined the Dermatology and Cosmetic specialties, and became a Cosmetic Dermatologist. Today, as the Medical Director of the Helton Skin and Laser Institute in Newport Beach, California, Dr. Helton is passionate about using the latest non-surgical methods to improve his patients’ appearance and bring out their inner beauty.

“I’ve spent years learning newer and better techniques in minimally invasive facial cosmetic procedures and nothing, absolutely nothing, compares to the outcomes produced by the Y LIFT® procedure. This has completely changed the way I even evaluate prospective patients. The Y LIFT® technique will become the new standard of care among discerning practitioners.” – George Ibrahim, MD
Ten years ago I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Rather than put patients at risk, I retired as a surgeon. My love of medicine and helping others stayed with me throughout my time away from the operating room. I wanted to practice medicine but was not sure how this would translate for me during this new chapter of my life. One day, I read about hormone replacement therapies. I was fascinated by the opportunity to help people feel and look better. Even though I wouldn’t be saving lives like I did as a urologist-oncologist, I could still change them, for the better.Restorative Medicine is a highly specialized field. There is an art to achieving the balance necessary to get optimal results. I researched how to become specifically certified in hormone management. I immersed myself in a fellowship offered by the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.Today, I’m the only certified fellow of this academy in the Western NC area. I opened Asheville Healthspan MD in early 2013. My goal was simple; to be the most highly trained, experienced physician practicing hormone optimization, period. The practice later added state of the art, physician-led aesthetic services as our patients demanded them.Because of my extensive experience, I am able to help my clients beyond typical hormone replacement therapy. I am an educator-speaking on the dangers of menopause, andropause, and how hormone optimization is the most natural and safest way to lower risks of cardiac disease, Alzheimer’s, osteoporosis, and many other ailments. I work with patients looking for a physician-supported weight loss program by using hormones in a way that optimizes workouts and energy levels.I’ve diagnosed prostate cancer in a number of patients who would have otherwise gone completely undetected, or where detection could have been delayed by years. My background allows me to detect symptoms in men, sending them directly to a practicing urologist who can confirm the diagnosis and take swift measures to treat this devastating cancer before it can cause harm.We also offer tailored hormone treatment to women with mild to moderate stress urinary incontinence. We perform a procedure in the office, under local anesthesia, using the body’s own growth factors. This procedure has helped patients see significant improvement, if not cessation, of their incontinence.In 2015, to honor our mission of offering our clients a complete restorative experience, we re-branded the practice to become Biltmore Restorative Medicine and Aesthetics.Our approach at Biltmore Restorative Medicine & Aesthetics looks at the patient as a whole. We don’t focus on just one specific part of the body or disease, but rather take a comprehensive approach in our evaluations.Our services are equivalent only to those offered in larger metropolitan areas like Charlotte and Atlanta.We can’t wait to help you feel like YOU again!CALL FOR A CONSULTATION TODAY: (828) 505 2885
