We can help you look younger by performing a cosmetic PRP procedure!
By helping to improve your overall health and by providing the means to allow you to look your best, we hope we can lead you toward the path of living your BEST LIFE no matter what age or stage of life you are in.
We know that your chronological age is just a number, don’t let it define you!
The largest organ in your body, your skin, is influenced by genetics, life style choices, the climate we live in, sun exposure, the chemicals we are exposed to and stress. As the years go by many of these factors contribute to signs of aging:
1. Skin color changes, becoming duller due to decreased blood flow.
2. Facial shape changes, becoming collapsed and droopy as muscle and collagen decreases.
3. Skin texture becomes less smooth, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles causing a “worn out” or “tired” appearance.
A PRP procedure can help take years off your appearance, because it helps to improve color, shape and texture! PRP refers to “Platelet Rich Plasma” (PRP) that is extracted from your own body by removing just a small amount of blood from your arm. It then undergoes a special process to separate the multi-potent platelet cells that hold the potential to rejuvenate tissue. These powerful cells are then applied to or injected into the face for remarkable results!
The providers at Medical Specialists are authorized to perform the most advanced PRP procedures available, the Vampire Facelift® & the Vampire Facial® created and patented by Dr. Charles Runels. Dr. Runels only allows providers who have undergone specific training, use specific FDA approved kits, and adhere to the most advanced equipment and protocols to use the patented “Vampire” name when referring to the PRP procedures performed.
We work with you to identify your specific needs and create an individualized plan that you are comfortable with, to achieve optimal results. Unlike a surgical face lift, or a chemical or laser peel, these procedures are minimally invasive so there is very little risk, very minimal pain, and very little recovery time. They are a safe and cost effective way to create a more youthful appearance by improving circulation and stimulating collagen growth. In doing so these procedures “plump up” your face but allow a natural appearance.
You will still look like YOU, just a fresher version of your handsome self! We are happy to discuss options and can help you decide what procedure or procedures would be best for you!
The Vampire Facelift® involves injections of PRP into the face. This procedure can also be combined with HA (Hyaluronic Acid) fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane to improve facial structure providing immediate results. Microneedling is often recommended in conjunction with the facelift procedure as it provides an added layer of micro-trauma to the skin that promotes healing and improves circulation. Full results of the PRP injections can be seen in one to three months and can last one to two years!
The Vampire Facial® also uses Platelet Rich Plasma, but in this procedure the cells are topically applied to your skin. Again, microneedling is often recommended in conjunction with the facial as it allows deeper penetration of the cells into the dermal layer of your skin. As the microscopic punctures heal and the PRP works it’s magic, the tone, shape and texture of your skin will improve over the course of a few months and the benefits will last one to two years!
Microneedling can be performed without the use of PRP cells. Microneedling is exactly what is sounds like, a special tool produces very tiny punctures in the outer layer of your skin. Your body’s healing mechanism is triggered and collagen production is stimulated. In studies involving micro-needling it has been shown as a safe and effective way to reduce the appearance of scars and wrinkles, and improve the color of the skin by promoting blood flow.
We look forward to helping you look and feel your BEST!
