Rejuvenating Facials

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, October 12, 2017

Radiant Remedies, Plymouth, MAThe vampire facial, or Platelet Rich Plasma facial (PRP), involves a small blood draw and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the plasma - the fluid part - from the red and white blood cells.

The concentrated plasma, which is rich in platelets - the part of the blood rich with growth factors - is then injected into the face. Some practitioners combine it with dermal fillers to further plump up problem areas, such as under the eye.

Gimmick or godsend?

The basic PRP treatment has been used for almost 20 years to accelerate the healing of wounds and burnt skin, and help athletes - including, reportedly, tennis ace Rafael Nadal - recover from injury. But it was when Dr Charles Runels from Alabama trademarked the name "Vampire Facelift" in 2010, during the craze for the Vampire Diaries and Twilight Saga, that the procedure became attractive for A-listers.

The godmother of vampire facials is socialite Kim Kardashian, but everyone can jump on this trend for receiving rejuvenating facials.

The recommended dosage is three sessions, four weeks apart, and then once a year for maintenance.

What is a Vampire Facial?

Joseph Coupal - Friday, September 29, 2017

Radiant Remedies, Plymouth, MAExtreme anti-ageing treatment loved by celebs – all you need to know.

If you want to reverse the ageing process, you could give the cosmetic procedure, which has been nicknamed the 'vampire facial', a try.

But what is it and how does it work?

What is a vampire facial?

The 'proper' name for a vampire facial is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy. It's essentially a regenerative therapy, which uses nothing but the patient's own blood.

Platelets are tiny blood cells which play a crucial part in helping the body stop bleeding - as well as repairing damaged blood vessels and cells.

You could think of them as little powerhouses, which release proteins for growth when they come in contact with the body's tissue.

In PRP, a needle is used to draw blood from the client's arm. The blood is then spun in a machine, to remove the platelets. The plasma from the blood is extracted, and spattered on the client's face using tiny acupuncture-style needles to rejuvenate their face.

Those promoting PRP say it should:

  • Improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars and stretch marks
  • Rejuvenate the under-eye area
  • Tighten stubborn open pours
  • Plump and add volume to any area (e.g. cheeks) where someone might otherwise get fillers.

Are vampire facials painful and are they safe?

Before any needles are injected, a local anesthetic cream is applied to the face.

This should make the treatment relatively painless, although clients should expect any injections made directly into the lip border to hurt a bit.

Non Surgical Hair Restoration

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Radian Remedies, Plymouth, MAAre you looking into hair restorations? If so, Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP therapy may be the non surgical hair restoration technique for you.

PRP therapy for hair loss is a treatment that involves withdrawing a patient's own blood, processing it so that only the enriched cells (platelet-rich plasma) remain, and injecting it into the scalp. PRP contains essential proteins that stimulate natural hair growth. The treatment can also be combined with hair transplant surgery, microneedling, or medications such as Propecia and Minoxidil.

One patient stated:

I honestly didn't know what to expect from my PRP treatment. Quite frankly, I was slightly skeptical, but I maintained an optimistic perspective about it and I have had tremendous growth within 2 and a half months of starting the therapy. My mid-scalp was one of several focal points of balding but my hair is growing back!

Additionally, I did NOT combine PRP with any other process, therefore my hair growth is solely conducive to the PRP treatment.

The Injection For Getting Rid of Double Chin

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, August 09, 2017

Radiant Remedies, Plymouth, MA

A noninvasive, nonsurgical procedure is enticing customers who might not otherwise seek out cosmetic treatments.

I sat back, exposing the vulnerable area under my chin, bracing myself for the pinch of the needle. I clutched an ice pack, ready to apply it, and looked around as my heart raced. I was about to have vials of synthetic stomach acid shot into my double chin, erasing it, I hoped, forever.

The drug designed to treat my “submental fat” (the fat pocket under the chin) is the new cosmetic injectable Kybella, which promises to dissolve fat cells through a series of injections. There’s very little downtime, it’s noninvasive and nonsurgical, and there’s little risk. The drug is the first (and only) injectable designed for getting rid of double chin.

Approved by the FDA in 2015, this is an alternative to liposuction or surgery, to destroy fat cells. When injected into subcutaneous fat, this cytolytic drug destroys the cell membrane—in targeted locations. The dissolved fat is now cellular debris, and gets cleared into the lymphatic and circulatory systems by specialized immunologic cells. This happens gradually over the span of several weeks. The deoxycholic acid follows the same path; it gets metabolized and broken down, and then excreted as waste.

As I hit my 30s, I began to feel a bit bothered by my double chin. While not especially noticeable, it has been a part of my profile for as long as I can remember; it’s genetic. I’ve often wished it gone, but I never considered a surgical fix. That seemed like an extreme measure. I never saw myself getting any kind of cosmetic procedure at all. Then I saw a magazine ad for a new injectable, noninvasive double chin treatment.

I was able to try Kybella at a spa. The owner says they see about 30 clients per month for Kybella, and that all of their customers have seen a positive result. “People are very interested in this treatment,” she says. “We have seen amazing results.” My expert injector loves administering Kybella because of its “wow factor.” This product can absolutely change your profile and really improve the shape and contour of your jawline.

They took a series of high-tech, 3-D photos, some Kybella before and after shots, and applied numbing cream under my chin. Then she applied a temporary dot grid; a map of injection sites. Then they started injecting. I felt the needles, but it wasn’t unbearable. I iced my chin when she would pause for a new needle. In all, I had about 30 injections from three vials of Kybella. Though they were many, the shots themselves only took maybe five minutes or so. She recommended I do two more treatments, approximately six weeks apart. Everyone needs two to six treatments.

For each treatment, the injector uses between one and three vials of Kybella, depending on how much submental fat one has. Kybella’s cost can exceed that of liposuction (which generally runs between $2,000-$5.000), but many clients are willing to pay a higher price to avoid going under the knife. People are excited that there is now a best way to get rid of double chin. Previously, the only procedure that was available to treat submental fullness was surgical liposuction, which is an invasive procedure with its own inherent risks and benefits.

Great candidates for Kybella are those whose submental fat is genetic, rather than weight-related. Younger clients typically do well because they have better skin elasticity, and are less likely to have excess, sagging skin under the chin. It is important to make sure that the fullness under the chin is from fat under the skin and not caused by other conditions, such as laxity of the skin. Submental fat can be seen in a wide range of ages, as factors such as genetics, hormone status, and weight can influence the amount of fat under the skin.

Kybella is bringing in a totally new group of injectable consumers. Around 45 percent of patients getting Kybella are new to aesthetic treatments—they’re people who haven’t previously been in a cosmetic or aesthetic physician's office. And the procedure is attracting an unlikely clientele: men. Many men who wouldn’t have previously considered cosmetic procedures are coming in for Kybella to sharpen their jawline.

The process can be relatively slow, with results taking weeks. This can be discouraging, especially to people who are self-conscious about their chins to begin with. The good news is that once your process is completed, those fat cells are not coming back. There is no upkeep to consider, or future costs. You take those fat cells away, they won't recreate themselves. Studies have been done on the long-term results, and “in general, between 75 and 90 percent of patients are still maintaining their response at up to five years. Most patients really turn a corner after the second treatment, seeing a noticeable reduction in fat.

In more than 20 studies, nearly 70 percent of the thousands of patients reported physical and emotional improvement. That sounds promising. Two U.S. trials put before the FDA showed that nearly 80 percent of those treated with Kybella noticed a reduction of their submental fat and thus had improved satisfaction about their appearance. And doctors are also happy about the advent of this drug. Physicians have really enjoyed the precision and the efficacy of Kybella. It does what it's going to do … it’s gonna kill fat cells wherever it's injected.

Right now at Radiant Remedies in Plymouth, MA we are offering a Kybella special. For more information click:  getting rid of double chin.

Best Way to Get Rid of a Double Chin: KYBELLA™

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, July 25, 2017
Radiant Remedies, Plymouth, MA

Too often we are asked, "What is the best way to get rid of a double chin?" The answer: Kybella Treatments.

Simple Kybella injections can take away the appearance of a double chin by getting rid of the excess fat in the area. This targeted reduction brings the chin into proper proportion with the face and neck.

With Kybella, the newest submental-fat-reduction option, patients can rid themselves of that unwanted double chin.

When employed as an injectable treatment, this chemical dissolves the walls of the unwanted fat cells that contribute to the appearance of a double chin. Over time, these disabled cells are naturally removed from the body, and the proportions of the submental area shrink to match the rest of the face and neck.

The above picture is Kybella  before and after! For more information on getting rid of a double chin with Kybella, contact Radiant Remedies in Plymouth, MA.
