PRASAD MEDICAL SKIN CARE: “SUITE” GIFTS AT SUNDANCE

Prasad was the “doc” to watch at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, and by “doc” we do not mean documentary. Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Amiya Prasad’s medical grade skin care line was a hit at the Talent Resources Gifting Suites at the Gateway Center in beautiful Park City, Utah. Alongside other TR Suite sponsors (such as Sean John and DL1961 Premium Denim), Prasad Medical Skincare gave the celebrities extra special gifts, leaving everyone feeling extra special.

Great for all skin types and ages, Prasad Medical Skin Care made a suitable gift for the celebs. One actress with a film premiere at Sundance commented, “Do you have anything for underneath my eyes? I just saw myself on screen, and I realized I’ve got to start doing something about my skin.” She gladly accepted the Eye Rescue by Prasad, “this couldn’t come at a better time.”

The lovely ladies, such as Carrie Preston, Mimi Rogers, and Vanessa Branch, fell in love with the Satin-C Gel and Collagen Peptide Gel by Prasad Medical Skin Care. Another favorite was the non-greasy, lightweight sunscreen Moist Silk Defense SPF-30. The skin care products all went, and actress Alexis Dziena got there just in time to get her pH Balance Cleanser.

The men were not shy about their interest in taking care of their skin either. For actors such as Wilmer Valderrama, Casper Van Dien, and The Bachelor’s Ben Flajnik, we recommended the pH Balance Cleanser and Daily Toning Pads by Prasad Medical Skincare. For NFL athletes Jared Odrick and Thomas Howard, the Moist Silk Defense SPF-30 was a must-have. “Shameless” star William H. Macy had no shame in getting the Skin Survival Kit for his wife Felicity Huffman.
Another grateful guest (who just so happens to be a producer), added, “did you know culturally the name ‘Prasad’ means ‘sweet gift’? So thank you for this!”

New York based, Dr. Prasad understands extreme weather, so he also gave away complimentary tropical lip balm for all those who would be walking around in the cold, snowy streets of Park City during the 2012 film fest. Prasad Medical Skin Care recently became available for online purchase at www.prasadmedicalskincare.com where anyone who needs the full line of medical grade skin care products can have it shipped right to their door.

Prasad Medical Grade Skin Care Products Reviewed on Joonbug

We were excited to see our Prasad Medical Grade Skin care products reviewed on the Social Media site Joonbug.com. Joonbug is NY’s Definitive Guide To NYC Events & Nightlife. Read their review below.

If you’re not familiar with Dr. Amiya Prasad, he’s a renowned Manhattan plastic surgeon. We know the word “plastic surgery” is still pretty scary for a lot of us, but Dr. Prasad’s approach to skincare is simple, effective and excellent for all skin types and ages. Whether you battle acne, sensitive skin, dry skin, rosacea or wrinkles, Dr. Prasad has a solution for you. No fancy packaging or frills, just quality products that are fragrance-fee and PH balanced. We personally used his products before reviewing them and can attest that they do exactly what they claim.

Some of the products we tried were the PH Balance Cleanser, the Gentle Cleanser, the Silk Defense SPF 30 and the Moist Silk Defense SPF 30. Most importantly the products did not clog our pores, irritate or cause any reactions on our normally sensitive, finicky skin. There’s no fragrance or fillers, just effective ingredients. Highly fragranced products are so irritating and unnecessary, so it was refreshing not feel like we were putting perfume on our face. We even took our eye makeup off with the cleansers and experience no stinging or problems.

Dr. Prasad also offers an array of spa skincare services, such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, fillers and more, if you’re looking for a little extra help.

More on Prasad Medical Grade Skin Care

Going from cold exteriors to warm interiors frequently can create a flushed red-faced complexion. This is caused by the straining of blood vessels in the skin, especially on your face. These temperature changes  can unfortunately result in broken capillaries. Using a topical or cream that contains peptides can help protect and plump up your skin so the broken veins won’t show! We recommend Prasad Medical Skincare’s COLLAGEN PEPTIDE GEL for your face and EYE RESCUE for beneath your eyes as peptide solutions for your skin during colder weather.

Prasad Medical Skincare’s Collagen Peptide Gel is a Hyaluronic acid-based gel designed to enhance skin moisture, reduce signs of photoaging, and increases production rate of collagen to erase fine lines and wrinkles. Containing peptides such as Palmitoyl oligopeptide and Palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7, short-chain amino acids that mimic fragments of human collagen, the peptides in this facial gel are demonstrated to increase the proliferation rate of human dermal fibroblasts which produce collagen, thus improving the dermal support matrix and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, the Collagen Peptide Gel contains Glycosaminoglycans and Sodium chondroitin sulfate, clinically demonstrated to inhibit matrix metalloproteinases which are generated by UV exposure and can break down collagen and elastin fibers within the skin. This product is a water-based vehicle that is oil-free, fragrance-free and non-comedogenic, appropriate for use under make-up, sunscreen or moisturizer, or as a light-weight moisturizer for acne-prone skin.  Applied to the face and neck every morning after cleansing for best results.

Prasad Medical Skincare’s Eye Rescue is a high-potency combination of ingredients specifically addressing the needs of the eye area, combining protective anti-oxidants, soothing emollients and firming peptides. Eye Rescue helps to diminish the appearance of dry skin, fine lines & wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles under the eyes. Eye Rescue contains Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, which stimulates collagen production, provides anti-oxidant protection, inhibits cell damage and provides skin clarifying and brightening actions by lightening melanin granules. This anti-oxidant activity is supplemented by Vitamin E acetate and Green Tea. Eye Rescue also contains Acetyl hexapeptide-3, a short-chain synthetic peptide that inhibits muscle contractions in the skin, resulting in muscle relaxation and smoothing of dynamic skin wrinkles.

Prasad Medical Skincare also has other great medical grade skin care products that can keep your skin healthy and young all year long!

Patient Reviews of HydraFacial™

More HydraFacial™ Testimonials

The last time I had a facial, all my friends asked “What happened to your face?” (since it was so irritated) and I explained I that had a facial. Being a guy, a lot of my guy friends made fun of me for having a facial done! However, I just had the HydraFacial™ and instead of looking worse for a few days until the skin on my face settles back down – the HydraFacial™ was instant positive results. It only took 20 minutes and after I can feel my skin breathing and I feel refreshed. I’ve been happy with the results of other types of facials, however the HydraFacial™ allowed me to get on with my day without feeling self-conscious about the appearance of my skin just after. I definitely would recommend HydraFacial™ if you have an event to go to or a busy week or weekend planned – or if you are just a guy in general because you don’t have to lie there a very long time.

The process was really cool and quick. The esthetician at Prasad Medi-Spa started off the HydraFacial™ by putting a hydrating gel on my face to hydrate my very dry skin – this is good because I have to shave every 2 days, so my beard area gets extremely dry and sensitive from shaving so often. After she then infused the glycolic acid onto my my face, and using the special HydraFacial™ wand, began the extractions. There is no discomfort or pain, it is like a little suction – like a mini-vacuum that you can feel cleaning your facial pores and skin. I’ve noticed the most difference after HydraFacial™ on my nose – which gets very congested, dirty pores. My nose now looks very smooth with healthy skin. After the extractions, she re-hydrated my skin with the product. Then, she applied a green tea eye cream and also hydraluronic acid all over for extra rejuvenating.

Vampire Facelift (TM)

Vampire Facelift (TM) doctors
Drs. Charles Runels and Amiya Prasad

I had the unique opportunity this past weekend to visit Dr. Charles Runels in beautiful Fairhope, Alabama. Dr. Runels is the creator of the famous “Vampire Facelift (TM)”. The day with Dr. Runels and his assistant Laura left me with a great impression. Many of my colleagues perceive Dr. Runels from his videos and website as being a “fringe” physician. Nothing could be further from the truth. Although his personal style (which is seen on his YouTube videos) and passionate desire to protect the quality of his creation “The Vampire Facelift (TM) can be interpreted as “strange”, my feeling is that he is an exceptionally creative and caring physician whose mission is help people live life to their fullest potential.

He was very gracious and specific in instructing me on how to perform the Vampire Facelift (TM) which is a method to enhance areas of the face which are sunken using hyaluronic acid (such as Juvederm and Restylane) and your own blood’s growth factors (drawn like you would for a routine blood test) which are processed into something called “PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma”. This combination as designed by Dr. Runels is very safe and creates instant results with typically no downtime. The clients of Dr. Runels I met at his office were huge fans of the procedure and could not say enough about how happy they were. In unapologetic Southern style, one client said “I’d follow Dr. Runels anywhere for my Vampire Facelift!” (the accent and voice made the phrase unforgettable). The idea of using your own blood to create a youthful appearance is a concept which has great appeal to many of our clients who have heard about the “Vampire Facelift (TM) on the TV show “The Doctors”.

My wife and I enjoyed a very educational day with Dr. Runels and Laura with only a little time to enjoy the beauty of Fairhope. We did have a wonderful dinner at Camellia Cafe with them and I have to say the service and food was on par with top Manhattan restaurants we’ve been to.

Just in time for Halloween, the “Vampire Facelift (TM)” is now a procedure we are offering at our offices in Manhattan and Garden City, Long Island.

Once again, I want to acknowledge Dr. Runels for his creativity and passion and thank him for his instruction and hospitality.

Plastic Fantastic: Platelet Rich Plasma fillers

Written by: Valentina Zannoni – Source: Swide.com

Between an eye-lift and a hair transplant, Dr Prasad took some time out of his busy schedule to talk to Swide about Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) fillers, the latest must have age defying practice.

But first here’s a brief biology lesson to get to grips with the terminology. Plasma is the yellow liquid which makes up over 50% of the blood. The actual blood cells are suspended in the plasma, making it the petrol of our organism. Platelets are those tiny cells that serve to create blood clots and therefore start the healing process of the skin.

PRP has been used for a while in other medical specialities, such as in orthopaedics for the cure of joints and chronic injuries to help stimulate the healing process. While three years ago, medical professionals from the cosmetic sphere started to think about the uses of PRP in their field. Dr Prasad, a facial rejuvination specialist at the Prasad Cosmetic Surgery Clinic in New York City, has been using this substance as a filler for two years now. “By placing it [PRP] in the skin” Dr Prasad explains, “you are injuring the skin in a controlled way and you are essentially healing a wrinkle by filling it with a material that will recruit the body’s collagen and start the healing process.” In layman’s terms, unlike Botox, PRP is used to restore volume under the skin.

PRP fillers are particularly effective on fine lines around the mouth, eyes, even bags under the eyes and also to reduce the depth of acne scars. The optimum age to undergo a treatment is when you are over forty, unless you want to treat acne scars, then the median age of the patient is halved.

And how about those stubborn expression lines? Well PRP fillers can also work on those. Dr Prasad says that this treatment can be used“ anywhere where the lines are relatively small, forehead lines are shallow, Botox can relax them but there is no good filler to plump them out and we’ve been using PRP.”

How do PRP fillers compare to more traditional chemical fillers like Restylane? Dr Prasad explains that it’s a matter of patience, the two provide more or less, equivalent results, its just a question of time. “With Restylane you get immediate results, because 1cc of liquid equals 1cc of correction. With PRP you may get immediate appearance of improvement but you have to wait to see the result because body has to respond by generating collagen. It’s a healing process.” Even though the results may come more slowly, the effects of PRPs however, can last a year or more, while other chemical fillers start fading after about six months. A PRP session, which can consist of 3 or 4 injections, is also better value for money, as typically it costs $1.500, while for one syringe of Restylane the retail price is $800.

PRP fillers are attracting an increasing amount of would be clients. “People do a lot of research, they learn a lot online, and they come and ask about it.” Dr Prasad has found that his role as surgeon has developed into teacher as well, “ often I have to educate them on what [fillers] can and can’t do. It takes the judgement of a professional to understand what they can do and how to apply them so you get the maximum benefit.”

In recent years, cinema, TV and literature have resurfaced the public’s fascination and interest in Vampires- today, in cosmetic surgery, the benefits of blood go further than fantasy and are becoming reality.
