Dr. James Newman is proud to offer the Vampire Facelift
procedure to appropriate patients to further reverse the signs
of aging. The procedure is completely natural as it
takes advantage of a process to concentrate all the healing
powers of growth factors found in our blood. Through the
process, Dr. Newman will add the key ingredient which is the
"rich plasma" from your blood to areas of the face and body to
further promote collagen and plump the wrinkles or shadows of
the face. Dr. Newman says , "the use of rich plasma to enhance
wound healing from minimally invasive energy based devices
such as the CO2 laser, Ulthera, Thermage, and Evolastin add an
extra 20% of benefit to these procedures." To find out if you
are a candidate for this procedure, please contact us in

Treatments Pro &
Balancing Your Decision -
With so many ways to improve the face and with countless
products and procedures available, why look for a better way?
Although there can be a place for a surgical facelift, such
procedures are not necessarily a panacea or cure-all to the
concerns of the aging face. Cosmetic surgery when needed can
remove excess skin and make the person appear younger.
However, a surgical facelift can actually contribute to a face
collapse as the skin stretches tighter against the bone making
the person look skeletonized.
With hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, the face is truly lifted
away from the bone and youthful volume can be restored to a
beautiful shape. With that in mind, the HA fillers should not
be used around specific areas near the eye. Furthermore, the
injector must be careful to avoid creating a shape that looks
foreign to the person's face or even foreign to this planet.
Also, the HA fillers are not extremely effective for improving
skin tone and texture.
Creating The Shape -
The first part of the Vampire FaceLift® Procedure™ utilizing
HA fillers to begin sculpting specific areas of the face. The
glycosaminoglycans (what an HA filler replaces) act like a
sponge that holds water in the face providing a basic shape.
This initial injection of HA is the precursor to the ultimate
Next comes the polishing and refining step of the sculpting
process which ultimately contributes to the appearance of a
younger version of you.
The Stem Cells In
Scientists have known for years that unipotent stem cells lie
dormant in the skin and provide the building blocks for
healing when you sustain a burn or cut. Until recently,
physicians had no convenient way to stimulate those stem cells
to grow new tissue. By utilizing the growth factors found in
the blood (specifically the platelets), a physician can
activate the unipotent stem cells already in the skin and tell
those cells to grow new, younger-appearing skin.
During the process of the Vampire FaceLift® Procedure™, stem
cell science is used to tell the body to grow new younger
skin. Unipotent stem cells, which grow only one specific
tissue, and can be found in every part of the body. For
example, unipotent stem cells in the liver grow new liver
tissue. Unipotent stem cells in the skin grow new skin. Thus,
the FaceLift® Procedure™ takes the cosmetic rejuvenation
process to a higher level!
Platelet-rich plasma is similar to HA fillers because it can
be injected to sculpt the face. But, here's the best part: not
only does the PRP cause an increase in the volume, PRP
contains at least 8 growth factors that will over a long
period of time, continually work like a rejuvenating agent.
Activating these growth
factors, all 3 parts of the aging process improve:
The skin color becomes a "younger" color because of
newblood vessel formation.
2. New collagen formations in the dermis lifts
the face back to amore youthful shape.
3. Because the growth factors are working to
build a new dermis, the
epidermis (the outer most layers of your skin) appears
The Science Of
The third and final part of the Vampire FaceLift® Procedure™
impliments the science and mathematics of pure beauty.
As far back as Leonardo da Vinci up until the present day,
physicians, scientists and artists have worked to define what
shapes, contours and proportions make a face more beautiful.
The challenge becomes how to take a face and bring out that
which is beautiful, without creating a shape that appears
unnatural. In the art and science of pure beauty, millimeters
are miles. Therefore, the physician employs the ideas of
artists and scientists who have deeply studied beauty when
considering where and how much HA filler and growth factor to
apply. Although this third component is the most difficult, it
is to be defined and described by the providers listed on this
