Regenerative Therapies

Regenerative medicine can be defined as ‘an interdisciplinary field of research and clinical applications focused on the repair, replacement or regeneration of cells, tissues or organs to restore impaired function resulting from any cause, including congenital defects, disease, trauma and ageing’.

Regenerative aesthetics refers to the application of regenerative medicine principles in aesthetic or cosmetic treatments, products and services. Regenerative medicine is the harnessing or management of the body’s own natural potential to repair, restore and rejuvenate damaged or aging cells and structures to a more healthy and youthful state. The human body is blessed with an incredible potential to repair and rejuvenate itself through the intricate and complicated interaction of growth factors and specific signaling peptides.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Growth Factors: the platelets and various natural growth factors and signaling proteins in our blood are harvested by a simple patient blood draw procedure, processed and concentrated.

We use the Eclipse – a double spin system that concentrates your platelets 4 to 6 times baseline and removes red blood cells. The lack of red blood cells helps prevent and reduce inflammation and pain during and post procedure.  The high concentration of platelets improves the efficacy of the therapy. The resulting patient’s own PRP is then used to enhance micro needling/Vampire Facial, Vampire Face Lift, Vampire Hair Restoration, Vampire Breast Lift, O-Shot, P-Shot, spine injections, large and small joint injections, as well as a variety of other regenerative treatments to rejuvenate tissues and enhance results with minimally invasive techniques.

PRP-Spine
Dr. Smith is a leader, and one of the few doctors, who has expertise in regenerative spinal injections.

In our office we have all the tools necessarily to give you the best possible outcome for your regenerative procedure. We offer fluoroscope, ultrasound, and sedation to ensure comfort and precision. Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP, is a three-step process. First, we draw your blood. Next, we use a machine called a centrifuge to spin the blood at a high speed to separate the red blood cells from the plasma (yellow fluid) that the red blood cells usually float in. Lastly, we extract the plasma so it can be injected.

The plasma contains platelets, which have over 7 different growth factors to help stimulate soft tissue healing and decrease inflammation. Our PRP is the highest quality and can be utilized if you are looking to avoid surgery or other invasive procedures.

PRP-Joint
We pride ourselves on being experts in joint injections. Our skilled providers specialize in large and small joint injections and have the best technology to ensure optimal healing and results.

We utilize Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP as a solution to help accelerate the healing process. This procedure is completed in three steps. First, we draw your blood. Next, we use a machine called a centrifuge to spin the blood at a high speed to separate the red blood cells from the plasma (yellow fluid) that the red blood cells usually float in. Lastly, we extract the plasma so it can be injection into your joint.

The plasma contains platelets, which have over 7 different growth factors to help stimulate tissue healing. PRP is so effective for joint injections, and is an excellent option if you are looking to avoid surgery or other invasive procedures.

Vampire Hair™ Restoration

Hair loss can be traumatic for both men and women!

 It used to be that the only option for hair loss was OTC hair products or cleansing, and the last option would be hair transplant surgery. Both of these options either the patients couldn’t afford, they were an inconvenience or they just didn’t work. Discouragement, trauma and depression were the only options left until now!

Vampire Hair™ Restoration treatment uses substances within the platelet portion of the patient’s own blood to stimulate new hair growth and reactivate the dormant hair stem cells.

As with all of our Vampire Procedures, studies show the use of PRP to be an effective therapeutic option for men and women experiencing hair loss.

Vampire Hair™ Restoration

Unlike topical synthetic products like minoxidil that stimulate hair growth but have limited effect, regenerative techniques utilizing the patient’s own PRP as well as biomimetic growth factors have revolutionized the treatment of hair loss and hair restoration. Thus, providing a more natural and long-lasting stimulation of the native hair follicle and healthier hair growth.

What to expect during the Vampire Hair™ Restoration?

The physician, Kevin Smith, MD, will come in and look at the scalp to determine how much PRP will be needed for the procedure.  RMBI staff will then come in and clean the scalp and put a topical numbing cream over the area that will be treated. We will then draw your blood and begin the double spin PRP process. The numbing cream will need to sit for an approximately 30 minutes.

Kevin Smith, MD, will inject the PRP directly into the scalp using a grid pattern over the entire thinning or balding area. Using our micro-needling pen Dr. Smith will then apply a second layer of PRP. This will activate the dormant hair follicles from underneath the surface as well as on the surface of the scalp. Thus, assuring that the patient gets the best results.

Dr. Charles Runels inventor and genius mind behind this revolutionary treatment has changed the lives of so many with hair loss. Kevin Smith, MD has been trained by Dr. Runels and certified in all of the Vampire Procedures including Vampire Hair™ Restoration.

When will you see results with Vampire Hair™ Restoration?

 Just like with all PRP procedures the patient will see the full results between 8 and 12 weeks.  However, the patient should start to see a difference after the first 2-3 weeks. Each patient heals differently so the results are different for each individual.

The Vampire Facial®

There are 4 elements of natural beauty in a man or a woman’s face.

These elements are:

Shape  Color  Texture  Size

Shape always trumps size when it comes to natural beauty. RMBI are careful that when there is a need to increase size we do it in a way that always appears natural and beautiful.

The Vampire Facial® uses PRP to enhance all 4 elements of natural beauty!

Using your own PRP during micro needling is a powerful tool to achieving your younger healthier look. PRP treatment stimulates growth of newer and healthier cells while healing damaged skin tissue.

Not only does The Vampire Facial® help you achieve a younger look it is also great for:

  • Minimalizing appearance of acne scars
  • Lessons the appearance of Melasma
  • Younger and Healthier looking skin

The Vampire Facial® is an amazing way to bring out your youthful color and the texture of your skin.

The PRP naturally produces fat cells and collagen in the face. This helps build your natural shape and size.

Vampire Facial

Facial Rejuvenation:  Comprehensive and more natural appearing and long-lasting results in facial aging treatments require more than surgical lifting procedures alone. Restoring youthful and more balanced outcomes can be achieved with less invasive procedures combined with volume restoration and skin rejuvenation by customizing regenerative aesthetic options such as using PRP.

The Vampire Breast Lift ®

Use Your Blood to Rejuvenate Your Breast…

The Vampire Breast Lift ® procedure is not for everyone.  

Many would do better with surgery (if you want a dramatic change in cup size).  

Do You Show Any of These 5 Signs of the Aging Breast?

  1. Skin color becomes grayerbecause of less blood flow.
  2. Shape of the breast becomes collapsedand droopy.
  3. Sensation decreasedafter breast feeding, or implants, other surgery, or aging.
  4.  Inverted nipples.
  5.  Crinkling, crate-paper skinaround the cleavage area.

If you answered YES to any of these questions then The Vampire Breast Lift ® procedure is for you.

3 Steps of the Vampire Breast Lift ® Procedure

  • Evaluate Shape and where the shape can be enhanced to create a younger, more attractive appearance.
  • Preparation of the growth factors for injection…

First, the injector (1) isolates growth factors from the patient’s blood.  (2) When these growth factors enter the breast (injected by the physician), then multi-potent stem cells become activated to grow new tissue.  This new tissue includes new collagen, new fatty tissue (for smoothness), and new blood vessels (for a healthy glow).

Then she “activates” those platelets to cause the release from the platelets of at least 8 growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue.

These growth factors work like magic to cause increased collagen & new blood flow. To rejuvenate new skin, these growth factors must be put back into your breast.

      (3) Injecting the Magic into Your Breast

Using numbing cream and a very small needle (for almost no pain), the physician injects the woman’s own growth factors back into her breast in a particular way. These growth factors then activate multipotent stem cells already in the skin (tricking them into “thinking” there’s been an injury and new younger tissue should generate).

Vampire FaceLift®

Do You Show These 3 Signs of Aging?

1. Skin color becomes grayer because of less blood flow.

2. Facial Shape becomes collapsed and droopy as muscle and collagen decrease.

3. Skin texture becomes less smooth. As a result, the person looks “worn”, or “tired” or “droopy.”  The lively, rosy hue (seen plainly in playing children of every skin color and in young adults) fades to a dull gray.

Why the Vampire FaceLift®?

With many ways to rejuvenate the face, why look for a better way?

Cosmetic surgery can remove excess skin and make the person appear younger. But, a surgical facelift can be more than what’s needed for some people (especially when loss of shape without extra skin is the main problem).  

Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers lift the skin away from the bone to restore youthful volume and shape. But HA fillers can cause problems near the eye. Also, the injector of HA fillers can chase a wrinkle and create a shape that looks foreign to the person’s face or even foreign to this planet.

The HA fillers do little to improve skin tone and texture.

Unlike most procedures, the Vampire Facelift (R) offers a way of both restoring shape, and improving tone and texture, as well as literally rejuvenating new and younger tissue! 

Here’s how it’s done…

4 Steps of the Vampire Facelift® Procedure

1. Uses HA fillers to create a beautiful shape

2. Then, the physician isolates growth factors from the patient’s blood

3. When these growth factors enter the face (injected by the physician)

4. Then multi-potent stem cells become activated to grow new tissue.  

This new tissue includes new collagen, new fatty tissue (for smoothness), and new blood vessels (for a healthy glow).

1. Creating a Beautiful & Natural Shape

In the first part of the Vampire FaceLift® procedure, the physician uses an Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler (like Restylane or Juvederm) in a very specific way to sculpt a younger appearing face–while still keeping the shape natural.

Providers of the Vampire Facelift (R) procedure take into account the mathematics of beauty as defined by much research (starting with the notebooks of Lonardo da Vinci) to avoid at all costs creating an unnatural shape.  These ideas about the HA fillers are not commonly known even among the best of cosmetic surgeons and constitute part of the intellectual property protected by the trademarked name (Vampire Facelift®).

After creating a younger, natural shape, then the physician harvests from the woman’s own blood (hence the name Vampire) growth factors that her body would normally use to heal damaged tissue.

2) Isolating  & Activating the Magic from Your Blood


First, the physician draws about 2 teaspoons of blood.

Then, using a centrifuge, the physician isolates platelets from that blood (platelet-rich plasma or PRP)–all within about 10 minutes in the office!

Then we “activate” those platelets to cause the release from the platelets of at least 8 growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue.  

These growth factors work like magic to cause increased collagen & new blood flow. To rejuvenate new skin, these growth factors must be put back into your face.  

(3) Injecting the Magic into Your Face

Using numbing cream and a very small needle (for almost no pain), the physician injects the client’s own growth factors back into their face in a particular way. These growth factors then activate multipotent stem cells already in the skin (tricking them into “thinking” there’s been an injury and new younger tissue should be generated).

(4) Recovery & Maintenance with the Healing & Regeneration properties of Altar™
an official Vampire Skin Therapy™ 

The patented ingredient in Altar™, SBD-4, works synergistically to enhance the effects of the previous steps and to help supply blood flow to fragile new growth of healthy pleuripotent stem cells.

The pluripotent stem cells then develop into new collagen, new blood vessels, and new fatty tissue trying to “repair” the skin that was never injured!

The result…younger-appearing skin!

The effects of the procedure improve for 2 to 3 months and last for at least 1 to 2 years!

Exosomes
One of the newest advancements in nanotechnology, exosomes are extracellular vesicles that produce chemical messengers that direct how other cells work. They are derived from mesenchymal stem cells sterilized and filtered from amniotic fluid. They contain lipids, messenger-RNA, micro-RNA, cytokines, and proteins that help create a regenerative response to various treatment therapies. Other cells react to these messaging signals and will change their behavior accordingly. By isolating the signals produced by stem cells and utilizing the signals as opposed to the cells themselves there is a minimal risk for side effects. Exosomes are the future of regenerative medicine!

Peptides
Peptides are amino acids that make up proteins. They are found in every tissue and every cell and perform a variety of functions that are necessary to maintain health. Peptides often act as hormones, carrying information through the bloodstream. They can be used to repair tissue and wounds, promote collagen for skin, aid in weight loss, and boost hormone levels-just to name a few! Peptides are typically given through injections and can be tailored to your individual needs.

Wharton’s Jelly and Umbilical Cord Blood
Wharton’s Jelly is a minimally manipulated human tissue allograph suspension that is derived from the Wharton’s Jelly of the umbilical cord. Wharton’s Jelly is a gelatinous tissue that is made of proteins, collagen, and hyaluronic acid, that houses mesenchymal stem cells. These stem cells are a source of growth factors, cytokines, an chemokines. Umbilical Cord blood has been used in stem cell transplantation for many years and is combination of hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) and mesenchymal stem cells (MSC). The cells have self-renewal capabilities, release growth factors, and are responsible to more specialized cell growth. They are known to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.

The first fast mimicking diet developed to provide the beneficial effects of fasting, without actually fasting. During the 5 days course of PROLON you eat a combination of soups, nutrient dense bars, and snacks that promote stem cell rejuvenation, maintenance of healthy metabolic markers, and quick abdominal fat loss.
Benefits of fasting include:
• Enhanced performance: great focus, clarity, energy, and benefits of a leaner body!
• Fat driven weight loss: fastest way to lose fat (notably the belly fat) while sparing the lean body mass/muscle.
• Enhanced cellular renewal: initiate the process of stem cell-based regeneration and the clean-up of aging and damaged cells.
• Improve Metabolic Health: maintain healthy levels of blood glucose, blood pressure, cholesterol, and decrease markers of inflammation to improve overall wellness

Intravenous Therapy (IV therapy) is a method of administering vitamins, amino acids, and minerals directly into the bloodstream. The process involves inserting a catheter (small plastic tube) into the vein and administering fluids such as normal saline, vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants into the bloodstream for a quick boost. These infusions can be customized to you to help you reach your overall health goals. Whether you have a nutrient deficiency from your current diet or are recovering from a surgery, these infusions can be tailored to your individual needs. The vitamins are going directly into the bloodstream and as a result the cellular level of nutrients become replenished more quickly and efficiently than oral supplementation.
