A Kardashian Takes "Vampire" (PRP) Hair Loss Treatments Mainstream 
Kourtney Kardashian Admits What I Suspected: "Its a Hole in My Head"
from the Sept. 12, 2019 Newbeauty.com article

Many of us have differing opinions on all things "Kardashian," but one thing we can probably agree on is that we love their candidness about beauty problems and beauty treatments. And in the Season 17 premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians Sunday night, we got a major dose of just that. 

As  Kim was casually chatting with Kourtney, she spotted a bald patch on the top of Kourtney's head and immediately freaked out. "Kourtney, you have a really big spot on the top of your head," Oh my god, I'm afraid for your life. Have you seen that?" Kourtney responded, "No, but I feel it," and attributed it to the sky-high  ponytail she had worn at a recent gala. "It's a hole in my head. I swear it's from my ponytail-it was so tight that I had a bump on my head like this [she used her hand to demonstrate a big bump]."

To fill in the bald area, Kourtney opted for platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections ,also known as the Vampire hair treatment, which is becoming an increasingly popular  nonsurgical treatment  for thinning hair and hair loss.

"Today I'm getting PRP, which is where they take your blood and spin it and they use your plasma and they inject it in my head for my hair to grow back," she said on the show at a visit to her doctor, who assured her it could take a while for the hair to grow back.

From Dr. Elliott
PRP scalp treatments can be done using either microneedling or injections to deliver it into the hair follicles.

The Microneedling treatment alone stimulates the production of collagen, the loss of which is one of the contributing factors to hair thinning. When PRP is painted over the freshly needled area, it travels down to the follicles through the thousands of tiny holes made by the needling, and stimulates the rejuvenation of the thinning hair follicles.

Since the brows are such a small area, we treat them with tiny PRP injections. 

To maximize results, we add liquid biotin to nourish the hair follicles and sometimes liquid progesterone to reduce hormonal hair loss.

Hate needles?
Blood is only drawn at the first treatment and the prepared PRP can be frozen to be used for the following 2 sessions.

The results of PRP hair loss treatments vary among individuals but in general, after a series of 3 treatments, about 30% of patients will see improvement in hair thickness, 30% won't see improvement but won't see further hair loss, and about 30% won't see any difference. Areas with no visible hair aren't improved by PRP treatments unless they're due to an autoimmune condition. 

The prices for a series of 3 PRP scalp treatments is $1,260 & $955 for brows.

Our First Results From The New Plasma Skin Tightening Treatment

by licensed aesthetician, Gale Pingleton
From the photos above, you can understand why I'm so excited about our new Plasma Skin Tightening Treatment (also called Plasma Fibroblasting), that  tightens and resurfaces precise areas of the skin with minimal downtime. With its tiny tip, 
it can even get up under the lashes.

How it works:
Plasma pen
The device uses the voltage in the air and the natural gasses emitted from our skin to form a plasma charge between them. With each shot, a small electrical arc is created between the plasma device tip and the skin. These tiny micro-injuries activate the underlying fibroblasts, which are the cells that produce new collagen and elastin, for up to two years following the treatment. 

The Plasma Pen is the only plasma device that reduces the volume of excess skin and helps smooth deeper lines and texture. Compared to laser resurfacing, the fibroblasting plasma treatment is more affordable, more comfortable, has less downtime and less risk of adverse reactions. It's tiny tip can also get into nooks and crannies better than a bulky laser.

Common Areas Where Plasma Pen Treatments Are Used: 
  • Crow's feet around the eyes along with lines on the eyelids
  • Smoker's lines - vertical wrinkles above & below the lips, also known as lipstick lines
  • Accordion lines - the lines that form outside of the mouth corners when you smile
  • Acne scars - improvement in the appearance of post-acne marks and scars
  • Forehead lines
  • Marionette lines - The creases or folds that run vertically from the corners of the mouth down to the chin
  • Necklace lines across the neck
  • Upper and lower eyelids - Bags and hoods
  • Anywhere on the body for spots & fine lines

Results From Our Own Probiotic Skin Solution Formula 

Skinbucha before after
skinbucha potion
I've concocted an anti-inflammatory, exfoliating and moisturizing probiotic solution for the skin, named Skinbucha, made from a combination of fermented organic green and black teas, and water kefir grains.

Skinbucha is rich in healthy sk in bacteria that prevent the
good vs bad bacteria
 overgrowth of damaging ba cteria, and produce multiple skin-friendly acids like lactic, glycolic, and acetic aci d, which together possess strong anti-inflammatory, moisturizing and healing properties.  

Skinbucha seems to decrease redness and irritation, while exfoliating and providing oil-free moisture to the skin. This makes it a good treatment for other skin problems associated with inflammation, such as rosacea, melasma, poikiloderma and acne. Apply it with a cotton ball or pad after cleansing. Skinbucha is also an excellent hair rinse that removes product residue & adds shine.

Don't take our word for it. Pick up your own free sample of Skinbucha when you're in the office & see how it works on your skin.

We warn users that Skinbucha has a stronger vinegar smell than the Kombucha beverage, because it's fermented longer, but the smell disappears when it dries. 

The mic roorganisms in Skinbucha also produce some solid material after several weeks that appears as strands in the s olution or a gel on the top. This material is not only harmless, it's recently being commercially harvested for other medical uses or used as a facial mask.
