Cleansing the skin is very important day and night.

Vampire face lift- Offers a way of both restoring shape and improving tone and texture.
Doctor injects hyaluronic acid fillers to the face to create a beautiful shape. After drawing blood, the physician isolates platelets from the patient's blood by spinning the blood in a centrifuge. The physician activates the platelets to release the growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue. When these growth factors are injected into the face, the multi potent stem cells become activated to grow new tissue. The result is younger appearing skin. The treatment lasts 9 months to 2 years.
