PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) & MICRO-NEEDLING:
The most sought after treatment in skin care today – with good reason!
What is PRP?
Platelets are cell like blood components that are essential for clotting. When activated, they release a myriad of human growth factors, essential for the regenerative process and for helping the skin heal itself. In addition, it attracts other cells such as stem cells and fibroblasts, that are critical for the repairing of tissue. Collagen production, another essential component, is kick started for repairing the skin and keeping it elastic. As the collagen matures, it tightens, strengthens and rejuvenates the skin and damaged areas, notably the opposite of the aging process.
The beauty of PRP is that it utilizes your own blood, and with a centrifuge it concentrates the platelets, so that a large amount can be injected into specific areas of the body. The results are a massive release of human growth factors capable of targeting areas for the regeneration of skin, collagen and elastin production, tightening and plumping the skin for a more youthful appearance. PRP has long been used to help speed recovery from injuries and with its powerful regenerative properties, it is now being used to repair scared skin, sun damaged and time damaged skin. The remodeling of the tissue firms and strengthens the skin to a healthier, smoother and more toned complexion.
What is Micro-needling with PRP?
Combining PRP with Micro-needling (Collagen Induction Therapy) is a revolutionary, safe and effective method of creating microscopic channels on the skins surface, allowing for serum to penetrate more deeply into the skin. Micro-needling is safe and effective, and a spectacular way to push up the skin’s healing powers into full gear.
This treatment is relatively painless, with little to no downtime – and because it’s your own blood, you don’t need to worry about an allergic reaction. Depending on the skin concern to be addressed, the number of treatments for optimal results will vary. Dr. Englard will discuss the treatment plan during your complimentary consultation.
PRP is indicated for:
- Skin Rejuvenation
- Tightening & Firming; Face & Body
- Reduces Wrinkles & Fine Lines
- Acne Scarring
- Stretch Marks
- Epidermal Pigment
- Burn Wounds
- Hair Restoration
The first phase of the Vampire Facelift® involves the use of PRP or “liquid gold”, which is known as the “vampire” part of the procedure. PRP is not a filler. It’s a regenerative treatment that involves using the body’s own wound healing and regenerative Growth Factors to improve skin tone and texture, and reduce age-related. The Growth Factors help repair cells, recruit other cells to assist in repair and destroy damaged cells.
After an in depth consultation, blood is drawn (similar to a standard blood test) and then spun in a centrifuge system, to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the other blood elements. The PRP is then injected with tiny needles into the superficial layers of the skin (called mesotherapy).
Although PRP can be used as a treatment on its own, many choose the full Vampire Facelift® experience with fillers added, for more immediate results.
This procedure is used to to treat fine lines and slight sagging on the lower areas of the face (chin, etc.) and to treat laxity in the décolleté area. It can also be used to treat cellulite, acne scars and even hair loss. Crow’s feet around the eye area can also be treated with PRP.
Vampire Facelift® / PRP can take four weeks for results to become apparent, with improvements often seen after 6-12 weeks. Most people report looking more refreshed and youthful, with a noticeable improvement in skin tone, texture and luminosity. Overall, the results can last 12+ months. Individual results may vary.
Each member of our team is trained and certified in this unique medical micro needling procedure, using the Rejuvapen for “collagen induction therapy” also referred to as “CIT”. Tiny needles placed into the dermis cause the skin to respond with collagen which softens the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and superficial sun damage.
PRP delivered into the dermis further enhances the micro needling treatment so that collagen is stimulated by the growth factors in the platelet rich plasma (PRP). PRP also stimulates blood supply to the skin, which creates a glow and luster in the skin, unique to platelet rich plasma.
The benefits of the Vampire Facial® are noticable after about 1 week. The skin continues to improve over the following few weeks. The benefits of the Vampire Facial® can last for months.
The Vampire Facial treatment is customized to the needs of each client. The Vampire Facial® treatment can improve the appearance of:
- Acne scars
- Chicken Pox scars
- Fine lines
- Sun damaged skin
- Brown discolorations
Following the Vampire Facial®, the skin may appear pink for about 1-2 days – however, makeup can be worn the next day. Results will vary from person to person.
This procedure can increase and enhance your sex life or reduce urinary incontinence. The shot, an abbreviation of The Orgasm Shot, is a non-surgical treatment via injection, which increases sexual arousal and rejuvenates the vagina. Patients had reported stronger and more frequent orgasms, increased natural lubrication and greater arousal after having the procedure, which takes around 40 minutes.
The O-Shot® works by using platelets containing the patient’s own blood from their arm (PRP). This is then put into a centrifuge to produce “high quality” Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). The PRP is injected into specific areas of the vagina. Patients report noticeable results after just one shot, or opt to come back for more, to build on the existing PRP. Results vary from patient to patient.
Vampire Breast Lift®
This innovative and new cosmetic procedure is the first non-surgical, non-invasive and no-down time breast enhancement option for patients who are satisfied with their cup size, but concerned with the overall appearance of their breasts and cleavage. Utilizing the science of platelet rich plasma (PRP), which harvests the body’s natural growth factors to regenerate and heal tissue and, optionally, injected dermal filler, the Vampire Breast Lift® can improve age or exposure-related skin deterioration, on and/or between the breasts. Vampire Breast Lift® can add volume, to present a perkier, more youthful appearance.
The Vampire Breast Lift® process is known as “injecting magic. This procedure is a wonder-treatment for women who seek a no-surgery solution for more volume and more pronounced cleavage, but aren’t looking for a major change in breast size.
First, we evaluate the shape of the breast to determine where it can be enhanced. Next, we prepare the PRP for injection. As with other procedures involving the injection of PRP, this is accomplished by isolating growth factors from the patient’s own blood. Finally, the PRP is strategically injected into the patient’s breast. The growth factors in PRP cause increased collagen and new blood flow. This process activates stem cells to grow new blood vessels, collagen and fatty tissue.

The Priapus Shot (known popularly as the P-Shot®) is a procedure designed to deliver lasting improvements in male sexual performance. It is effective for those who have lost or are experiencing reduced erectile function due to the after-effects of surgery, an enlarged prostate, prostate cancer, drug side effects and other conditions, including diabetes.
The Priapus shot is a modern medical procedure that can treat erectile dysfunction. Unlike many erectile dysfunction (ED) treatments, the P-Shot® delivers long-lasting results that cannot be achieved with pills, creams, or other male enhancement procedures.
The P-Shot® is a relatively pain-free penis injection, one of the only non-surgical treatments for ED that can also increase penis size.
Men can expect:
• Firmer and more sustainable erections which last longer
• Proven penis enlargement*
• Increased sexual stamina, to be able to have sex longer
In addition, the Priapus Shot:
• Helps lessen premature ejaculation problems
• Provides increased pleasure and better sexual sensations
• Offers increased self-esteem that accompanies being a bigger, stronger and better lover

Is your hair thinning? Noticing balding? PRP is an effective, non-surgical method of treating thinning and balding hair, in both men and women. Many people struggle with alopecia areata and androgenetic alopecia (hereditary male or female hair loss), but there are treatment solutions! Much like PRP for skin rejuvenation, the patient’s own blood is drawn and put into a centrifuge to retrieve and concentrate human Growth Factors needed to stimulate hair follicles for new and increased growth. With tiny needles, the serum is infused into the areas of concern. This increases blood flow to nourish and oxygenate the surrounding areas, stimulating hair growth and mimicking what the body does naturally.
Information and research studies to support these treatments were presented at the 2013 7th Annual World Congress for Hair Research, held in Edinburgh, Scotland UK. PRP (platelet rich plasma) can improve and increase hair growth in many patients. Cytokines and growth factors locked within the platelets are concentrated and released, then injected into the areas of alopecia (hair loss), to stimulate hair regrowth.
