"The filler acts like a sponge, holding water in
the face providing a basic shape," Moore says.
"This initial injection of the acid is the precursor
to the desired form." Next comes the polishing
and refining step of the sculpting process,
"which contributes to the appearance of a
younger version of you."
Moore adds that within minutes, the clinician
creates autologous Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to
activate your own stem cells. (Vocabulary lesson
for today: autologous means utilizing some-
thing from your own body)
The three-step process is quite simple. A small
amount of blood is drawn and then placed in
one of those cool CSI crime-labby centrifuges to
spin the blood and separate the platelets from
the other components of the blood. Finally, the
platelets are activated to produce your very own
platelet-rich plasma. The PRP is injected into the
desired areas (typically around the:eyes, na-
solabial folds, chin and cheeks) and just like a
scab turns into skin over time, this process
works to rejuvenate the treatment zones.
It takes four to six weeks to completely see
the benefits of PRP injections, but according to
Moore, there is also some instant gratification
from the procedure.
There's a way to maximize the results of the
non-surgical Vampire FaceLift through a proce-
dure Moore created, called iRevival. The treat-
ments together work well for someone with a
less of volume in the cheeks and face.
The exclusive procedure will be introduced to
other skin care clinics in March because of its
popularity and visible results. It combines C02
laser resurfacing with the same PRP and unipo-
tent stem cells.
"First, n e treat the skin with C02 laser to cre-
ate microscopic wounds. When these wounds
heal, they naturally build new collagen and firm
and smooth the texture of the skin. Afterward,
the PRP is applied topically to speed up the
healing process and injected into problematic
areas as with the Vampire FaceLift," Moore
says. "PRP combined with microscopic wounds
dramatically decreases fine lines, firms and
tightens the areas around the? eyes, evens out
acne scars, eliminates sun damage, and bright-
ens and enhances the color of the skin."
Both these treatments are ideal for patients
over the age of 35 because everyone stops pro-
ducing collagen around that age. Acne scar pa-
tients or anyone suffering from premature aging
due to excessive sun exposure or cigarette
smoking can also benefit. (The Vampire FaceLift
GETTING RAW — WITH YOUR FACE
What could be better than playing safe and going
raw? And you don't even need to be in a relationship to
Dallas-based cosmetics company Raw for Men pro-
duces a skin care line targeted at those among the popu-
lation with tougher hides that still require a little
pampering. And that has gay men written all over it.
The variety of products are designed to work together
in a five-pronged treatment method: Cleanse, exfoliate,
tone, restore/rebuild and protect.You can do all of those or
just the ones that your personal derma calls out for.
The Blue Agave Wash is an excellent start, a eucalyp-
tus-y, aromatic scrub that energizes and even helps wake
you up, while using the healing strength of agave (ifs nice
when tequila makes you feel better, not worse) to tingle
the skin. ($10/1 oz.; $26/4 oz.)
Follow that up with a Stone Power toning rinse
($8/$24) which hydrates without being astringent. Cap
your routine with the Daytime Cream ($15/one-half oz.:
$32/1.7 oz.), which protects from sunline and fortifies.

Should you or someone you know need im-
provement further below the neck, Platelet Rich
Plasma can also be used for rejuvenation and
enlargement of the penis. Or as the vampires
call it, raising the dead.

It's a Treatment as Individual as You Are.
Temporary hoir removal methods such as waxing, depilatories
and threading can actually increase hair growth. For permanent
hair removal, electrolysis is the only choice. It works almost
anywhere on the body - fate, legs, under-arms, abdomen, back
and bikini line. And it's effective on light or dark hair.
