Hair Rescue™ Treatment Offers More Affordable and Non-Surgical Option for Restoring Hair

Hair loss can be a thing of the past thanks to an injection that can help further prevent and even reverse hair loss. Prasad Cosmetic Surgery is now offering  ACell / platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections, called Hair Rescue™. He has spent years researching and proving that only when the wound healing powder ACell MatriStem MicroMatrix is combined with PRP, in the proprietary formulation that he has developed over the course of his thorough research and clinical studies, it can help to both prevent and regenerate hair in men and women experiencing genetic hair loss – all without surgery.

It was discovered that if the MatriStem powder is dissolved in a specialized blood serum rich in the patient’s adult stem cells and injected into the scalp, his proprietary combination acts like a hair growth accelerator. The Hair Rescue™ injection treatment is now available at Prasad Cosmetic Surgery and Medi-Spa through its newly opened Hair Rescue and Restoration™ center.

“Hair Rescue injections finally give men and women a non-surgical option for both preserving and restoring hair by reactivating genetically faulty scalp stem cells,” said Dr. Prasad. “For those in the early to moderate stages of hair loss, this revolutionary, proprietary injectable combination of ACell and PRP can help prevent further hair loss and help restore a patient’s hair.”

Dr. Amiya Prasad has been seeing patients from all around the world ever since work with ACell and PRP gained world-wide attention in the field of hair restoration. Many patients see improvement in hair volume in as early as three weeks to six months following Hair Rescue™ injections in their scalp and in two years, not one patient has needed repeat injections, making this a much more affordable option for improving hair loss.

New York’s Dr. Amiya Prasad explains and performs The Vampire Facelift™ on a patient. Dr. Amiya Prasad was trained by Dr. Charles Runels, inventor of the “Vampire Facelift™, and now offers his patients in New York and Long Island The Vampire Facelift™. Used to treat hollowing under eye area and cheeks losing volume with age as well as the area around the mouth, The Vampire Facelift™ is a great non-surgical solution without any downtime.

The patient undergoes a Vampire Facelift™ performed using a combination of hyaluronic acid (such as Restylane or Juvederm) with platelet rich fibrin matrix (activated platelet rich plasma or PRP) using the Selphyl of RegenLab system in an artistic way to restore the lost volume in the face. Dr. Prasad’s Vampire Facelift™ patients enjoy natural results using their own blood that is then specially processed for use as a natural filler for the face, eyes, cheeks and mouth with immediate results and minimal bruising and swelling.

Administered like an injectable filler, the benefit of the Vampire Facelift™ continues over time after the procedure as the growth factors in the blood stimulate the body to create collagen and new blood vessels which create a beautiful complexion to the skin and enhance the face.

Dr. Prasad offers the Vampire Facelift™ procedure at his offices in Manhattan and Garden City, Long Island.

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.

Natural Dermal Fillers Using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Dermal fillers minimize creases around the nose and mouth.

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is fast becoming one of the most useful natural treatments for rejuvenation throughout the body.  Most recently, PRP’s benefits in aesthetic medicine have been discovered and the long list of its benefits continues to grow.

Cosmetic fillers are a popular way to rejuvenate the face, lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve scars.  While there are several great filler products on the market, PRP offers a truly organic alternative with faster results.  Since the patient’s own blood is used to rejuvenate their appearance, using PRP also alleviates the risk of allergic reaction or skin sensitivity.

The procedure helps restore or enhance areas which require volume. PRP can be used for the following:

  • Diminishing the glabellar lines, also known as the number 11 sign between the brow
  • Diminishing forehead lines
  • Improving the appearance of periorbital lines, also known as crow’s feet
  • Diminishing nasolabial folds
  • Reducing smile lines
  • Treating acne scars
  • Improving the vertical lip lines, also known as lipstick lines
  • Improving the marionette lines (the ones from the corners of the  mouth to the chin)

PRP contains growth factors which stimulate the body to repair and restore tissues using the body’s own natural processes. With this technique, you can rejuvenate the skin by isolating elements from the blood which can then be injected below wrinkles, folds and even acne scars.

The benefits of PRP as a cosmetic filler is the ability to help your skin heal faster, no allergic reaction and faster skin rejuvenation for a longer period of time.
