Facial Rejuvenation with Vampire Facelift®

Are you interested in a younger, more refreshed facial appearance? If so, the Vampire Facelift® is an effective, non-surgical way to regenerate collagen and restore a more youthful shape to your face.

The Vampire Facelift® procedure combines the science of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers and your own Platelet Rich Plasma. The artful eye of a skilled provider can design a rejuvenated and naturally beautiful appearance that results in a younger looking face.

The Vampire Facelift® procedure begins with a simple blood draw from your arm (2-4 tablespoons). Using instrumentation approved by the FDA for isolation of Platelet Rich Plasma for injection back into the body, the experts at PRP Regeneration Specialists will then process your blood at the bedside to isolate the PRP. This takes about 10 minutes. Next, we will use a hyaluronic acid filler (such as Juvéderm®) to add a natural collagen scaffold based on your facial structure. Finally, we will safely inject PRP into your face so that your body’s own healing process triggers the regrowth of new tissue and blood flow to recreate your younger self. Though bruising can occur, most will see a younger, natural appearing face that very day.

The Vampire Facelift® Offers the Following Benefits:

  • Non-surgical
  • Drug-free
  • Refreshed skin color due to new blood vessel formation
  • More youthful, lifted face shape with collagen replenishment
  • Smoother skin tone
  • Tissue regeneration
  • Natural shape
  • Quick recovery
  • Fading of scars

Almost anyone can get a Vampire Facelift®! The team at PRP Regeneration Specialists will help determine if this procedure is right for you. If you have facial droopiness due to volume loss, dull-looking skin or have lost your “rosy” complexion, this might be the procedure for you.

Vampire Facial®

The Vampire Facial® uses the body’s natural healing properties to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars (such as acne scars). This in-office procedure is safe for all skin types, and is a quick, non-invasive procedure with no down time. The Vampire Facial® combines the powerful benefits of microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma.

The Vampire Facial® uses the body’s own growth factors from Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to stimulate collagen and restore a youthful complexion. This process can reverse the signs of aging and revive skin health for smoother, firmer, and younger-looking skin.

During the Vampire Facial® procedure, Platelet Rich Plasma is combined with microneedling. The procedure begins with a simple blood draw from your arm (2-4 tablespoons). An instrumentation approved by the FDA is used at the bedside for isolation of Platelet Rich Plasma the platelets and growth factors (PRP). The PRP is then used topically on the face in combination with the microneedling procedure.

Microneedling is an in-office procedure that delivers thousands of micro-injuries to initiate the body’s wound healing process without the risk of scarring. The body begins to break down damaged tissue and produce healthy new cells. These cells repair and remodel the injured tissue, producing organized, healthy dermal tissue such as collagen and elastin. A topical anesthetic is applied prior to the procedure so that there is minimal discomfort during the procedure.

Optimal microneedling outcomes require proper cell nutrition during the 28-day remodeling process. The Skinfuse® post-microneedling topical protocol delivers topical nutrients essential to the results, in a concise, easy-to-use regimen.

Skinfuse® key ingredients include:

Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Copper peptides, Vitamin E, Magnesium, Zinc, Ginger extract.

A 28-day supply of Skinfuse® products is included with the cost of the procedure.

There is little downtime after the Vampire facial. It is recommended to avoid make up and exercise for 24hrs after the procedures to allow the micro channels created by the microneedling to heal.

Sclerotherapy (Spider vein removal)

It is estimated that one third of American women suffer from spider veins. Spider veins can be red, blue, or purple small veins that lie immediately below or on the skin’s surface. Spider veins are commonly found on the lower legs. Some common causes of spider veins are: Occupations that involve a lot of standing, obesity, pregnancy, menopause, hormone medication, sun exposure, and heredity. Spider veins do not cause health problems but most people seek treatment because they want to get rid of unsightly small veins. Larger varicose veins cannot be treated by this procedure.
This simple, in-office procedure is highly effective in reducing or eliminating unsightly reticular or spider veins. The great majority of patients of patients are happy with the results and feel better about themselves.
Most common side effects are: red and itchy skin with swelling at the injection sites. There can be a burning sensation along the treated vein, this discomfort is usually temporary. Bruising is common and to be expected.

After sclerotherapy, a person may notice some dark discoloration (hyperpigmentation) after treatment. This will fade on its own in 4-12 months. In rare instances this darkening of the skin may persist for years for those with dark skin types.

Rare side effects: skin ulceration, allergic reaction, infection, and deep vein thrombosis.

This in-office procedure can take 30-60 minutes depending on the area to be treated. Using a vein light to visualize the veins under the skin a solution called a sclerosis agent is injected into the veins. This solution causes irritation to the inner lining of the vein resulting in inflammation and closure of the vein which typically occurs within 4 weeks. A tiny needle (30 gauge) is used to perform the injections and most patients relate the discomfort to an ant bite.

After the procedure, it is recommended to avoid strenuous activity and to wear compression stockings for 10 days after the procedure.

Botox® VIP Program

Botox® Cosmetic is a simple in-office cosmetic procedure that was FDA-approved in 2002 to improve facial wrinkles in the forehead, between the eyes, and in the “crow’s feet” areas around your eyes.
Botox® Cosmetic works by temporarily weakening the muscles that cause facial expressions. Once the treated muscles are weakened, the pull of the muscle relaxes which will results in an overall smoother complexion.
Any medication has risks, but Botox® Cosmetic has a strong safety record. There were only 36 serious adverse effects associated with cosmetic use reported to the FDA between 1989 and 2003 (13 had underlying medical conditions that could have caused the reaction).
Complications are rare and when they do occur typically it involves the local spread of the toxin to cause paralysis of unintended targets such as eyelid drooping which is temporary.

Possible side effects of treatment:

Some of the side effects of Botox® Cosmetic injections include: muscle weakness near where the medicine was injected, bruising, pain, redness, or swelling at the injection site, headache, muscle stiffness, neck or back pain, flu symptoms, allergic reactions, rash, and itching.

Although Botox® Cosmetic results are noticeable, your facial appearance will not be radically changed or give you that “plastic” look. The muscle activity that causes the lines to form is simply reduced so you can frown, smile, or look surprised without the creases and wrinkles.
It can take up to 2 weeks for it to take full effect. Usually we ask patients to wait the 14 days to pass to fully see the results.
Generally, after the initial consultation, the procedure only takes approximately 15 minutes. You can come on your lunch break and no one would know you had it done.
Although everyone handles pain differently, most patients say the injections feel like a little pinch.
Your face will never look worse if you stop receiving Botox® Cosmetic injections. Botox® Cosmetic inhibits the signs of aging, so when you stop getting the treatments the normal aging process resumes.

This program is designed to help people reach their health goals by focusing on a healthy eating plan and lifestyle that can be maintained for life. This program will help a person lose weight, reverse and prevent chronic diseases, and improve energy level.

Research has shown that any diet plan will work if a person sticks with it. What happens most of the time is that people make changes and lose weight, but gain the weight back again (and then some) when they return to their “old ways”. Our goal is to give you the tools and information necessary to lose weight and improve health so you can maintain these benefits long term.

Weight loss can be very challenging and our program helps to identify the obstacles that are preventing a person from reaching their goals. The Get Healthy Program is a medically supervised program that is specifically tailored to each person. A personalized plan is developed after reviewing comprehensive blood work, body composition (using the state of the art Seca Body Measurement scale), medical history, and physical exam.

In some cases, FDA-approved medications (Phentermine and Topamax) will be ordered temporarily and monitored carefully throughout the program.

Bi-weekly visits are recommended to keep up the weight loss motivation. During these visits, vital signs will be assessed, body composition including weight will be measured, medications will be reviewed and adjusted as needed, and informational health tips will be discussed. Vitamin B12 injections are included if desired for energy.

The benefits of this program include weight loss, increased physical fitness, improved mood and energy, and optimal health.
Any person that desires improved overall health and disease prevention. Weight loss is usually a benefit from living a healthy lifestyle.

Nutritional Testing and Vitamin Supplement Counseling

Many people experience chronic illnesses because of nutritional deficiencies. NutraEval offers nutritional recommendations based on a person’s individual test results. This eliminates the guesswork about what supplements a person should be taking for optimal health. Conditions that can benefit from this advanced nutritional testing are:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Sleep Disturbances
  • Fibromyalgia or Fatigue
  • Optimized Health and Sport Fitness

The NutraEval testing evaluates nutrients 5 key areas: Antioxidants, B Vitamins, Digestive Support, Essential Fatty Acids, and minerals. In this test, the Amino Acids are measured in a convenient first morning urine collection.

This specialized nutritional testing offered by Genova Diagnostics laboratory creates a report that synthesizes the results of more than 100 individual bio markers into one easy-to-interpret overview as well as a personalized patient supplementation schedule.
Provider recommendations are emailed to the patient with the link to order the supplements online and have them directly shipped to the home using the Wellevate program.

During the initial visit the health care provider obtains a detailed health, medicine, and supplement history. Fasting bloodwork is drawn from the patients arm (approximately 2 tablespoons).

The bloodwork is processed and shipped to the laboratory in North Carolina. The results of the testing are available to the provider in 2-3 weeks. Our medical provider will discuss the results with a Nutritional specialist at Genova and recommendations for that specific patient will be shared at the return consultation visit.

A repeat test will be recommended in 4-6 months to assess the effectiveness of the supplement plan.

Fortunately, many insurance companies recognize the importance of this nutritional testing for overall health and wellness and cover it completely (Medicare) or charge a co-pay of approximately $150. Without insurance, the testing costs approximately $800.
