EXILIS

What is Exilis?

The BTL Exilis System is a radiofrequency (RF) device that delivers high energy in a controlled fashion to the dermal and subcutaneous layers of the skin.

  • There is NO PAIN associated with your treatment, only a moderate to intense sensation of heat which tells you that the treatment is achieving its goal.
  • There is NO ANESTHETIC required with BTL Exilis System treatments.
  • You may continue all medications, supplements and vitamins during your treatment period.
  • BTL Exilis System is NOT A LASER.
  • There is no skin peeling, pigment change or prolonged healing associated with its use.
  • The RF energy heats the undersurface of the skin causing collagen remodeling.

Your BTL Exilis System treatment will be administered by a thoroughly trained RF specialist.

Before you start?

If you are having a BTL Exilis System treatment we require you to please drink lots of water 2 days before, on the day of and for 4 days after your treatment to help improve lymphatic drainage. We will measure prior to your treatment to make sure that you have drank enough water for the treatment. If you have not drank enough water for the treatment we will reschedule for the following week. We also encourage light physical activity after your treatment to help

increase lymphatic drainage. Men and women with hair in the treatment area must shave the morning of the session.

What is the Post Procedure Care?

There is NO DOWN TIME associated with your treatments other than a brief period of redness and minor swelling. You can get back to your daily routine almost immediately.

How soon will I see Results?

Although you may see immediate results after your treatment session, the major portion of the clinical improvement is evident at 3 MONTHS following your LAST treatment.

How often are the treatments?

It is essential that your sessions be repeated at 7-14 DAY or 2-4 WEEK INTERVALS for 4 sessions. In order to see significant results, the BTL Exilis System treatment must be administered in this fashion.

Please note!

Patients with a pacemaker, metal implants or who are pregnant or nursing may NOT undergo RF treatments.

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.

When will you see results The Vampire Facial®?

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.

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!

Use Your Blood to Rejuvenate Your Face…

The Vampire Facelift® procedure is not for everyone.  

Many would do better with surgery, or laser therapy, or Botox®, or simply PRP or an HA filler used alone. Kevin Smith, MD display’s passion about offering you the right procedure for your face.

Y LIFT®

What is the Y LIFT®

The renowned Y LIFT® procedure is a revolutionary patented minimally invasive facelift performed in 30-45 minutes yielding instantaneous, dramatic and natural-looking results. It was famously dubbed the “Miracle 30-Minute Facelift” by Dr. Oz.​

The Y LIFT® is based on the notion that youthful facial contours are shaped like the letter “Y”. If you were to superimpose two “Y” s over the face you would see that one appears wide at the top, spanning the eye & cheekbone region, while the second spans the entire jawline; both narrow down to a point culminating at the chin. As we age, the arms of these “Y” shapes begin to widen steadily downward and resultantly, the face begins to lose structural volume and deflate.

Y LIFT® Results

  • Cheekbones lifted + accentuated
  • Under eye area revived, improving hollowness
  • Definition of the jawline + lifting of the upper neck

NO Incisions • NO Anesthesia • NO Surgery • NO Downtime

How Y LIFT® Is Performed

A specialized blunt titanium instrument is inserted beneath the skin and muscle. The muscles are lifted by the instrument and FDA-approved hyaluronic acid fillers are then injected to hold the muscle in its newly elevated place. The strength of the muscle maintains the filler in place and gives lift and prevents sagging. The face is then sculpted by hand. Filler is not injected into the skin and there is no use of needles like in regular filler injections.

The Y LIFT® is performed under local anesthetic. Results of the Y LIFT® typically last 2 – 4 years.

 The Y LIFT® Candidate

  • The Y LIFT® is suitable for most patients, male + female, ages 20 – 90 years old
  • Female Patients: accentuates the cheekbones, improves under eye hollowness, defines the jawline + lifts the upper neck​
  • Male Patients: builds coveted masculine facial features (subtle cheek projection and a more prominent jawline)
  • Ideal for younger patients who desire higher cheekbones and/or more defined jawline

RMBInstitute-skinpen1

We love our SkinPen! SkinPen is the first microneedling device in the world to be cleared by the FDA, and has been shown to be effective and safe for acne scars. The SkinPen treatment is a non-invasive way to get smoother, healthier looking skin. When you come in for your treatment we numb you with a cream so that the tiny needles at the tip of the pen that are promoting collagen and elastin aren’t painful. Downtown is minimal and in two weeks you can see the difference in your skin!

Why Skinpen?
• Non-invasive treatment that regenerates your skin in 2 weeks
• Improves fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars
• Great if you want to brighten your skin with minimal downtime

For an even greater benefit, we also offer SkinPen facials with platelet rich plasma (PRP). This process is 3 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 applied or injected into your skin. The plasma contains platelets, which have over 7 different growth factors to help stimulate collagen, elastin, soft tissue healing, and new skin growth. Our PRP is unique compared to other office’s in that our platelet concentration is 8-10 times baseline amount. Traditional dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and medi-spas typically offer 1-2 times baseline amount, which means you aren’t getting as much of the growth factors that give you the glow and skin regeneration you are looking for.
Why Skinpen with PRP?
• Highest concentration of PRP that will give you better results quicker than the traditional Skinpen treatment
• Decrease number of treatments to get to desired result due to higher concentration of PRP
• Minimal downtime with beautiful results

We proudly offer Botox, a medication the relaxes muscles to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Botox injections are quick and minimally invasive. We use the smallest needle available to make the procedure as painless as possible. Results can be seen 1 week after injection and last 3-4 months on average. We love to customize your Botox treatments based on your individual goals. We also include free touch ups, as long as you come back within 2 weeks of your appointment.
Why Botox?
• Quick procedure that results in a smoother, more youthful face.
• Results after 1-2 weeks
• Enjoy for 3-4 months

CBD – Lotion Beads

Salves and balms are often greasy and hard to absorb, so why not opt for an alternative that gives you the same CBD benefits without staining your clothes? Our review of the top 10 best CBD lotions will enable you to discover the right solution.

Due to a low fat percentage, lotions get absorbed quickly without leaving greasy traces. Plus, if you don’t like the taste of tinctures, oils, or other edibles, CBD lotions allow you to get relief from local inflammation, irritation, and other skin problems without having to ingest the product.

That said, finding high-quality CBD lotions isn’t as easy as it seems. Many companies use harsh chemicals and irritants in their formulas. Not to mention, since the CBD industry is fairly new, there’s little regulation over how much CBD is in a product.

CBD – Facemask

  • CBD face masks are a practical solution for individuals whose target area for CBD is only the skin on the face. The skin gets to absorb all the benefits of this phytocannabinoid without getting the users high.
  • Research showed that CBD exerted complex anti-inflammatory actions, which indicated that CBD reduced excessive oil production, making it a promising therapeutic agent for the treatment of acne vulgaris or common acne(1).
  • A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America concluded that CBD, as an antioxidant (anti-aging), was 30%- 50% more potent than both Vitamins C and E(2).
  • CBD might also be useful in reducing itch and skin dryness, as shown in a 2017 review published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology(3).
  • Meanwhile, a study published in the journal Clinical Therapeutics in 2019 examined individuals with either psoriasis, eczema, or scarring and found that CBD might help enhance skin elasticity and hydration(4).
  • However, CBD may cause drug interactions or allergic reactions. Thus, consumers are advised to first consult with a dermatologist experienced in cannabis use before including CBD face masks in their skincare regimen.

Procedures

SkinPen® by Bellus Medical is clinically proven to improve the appearance of facial acne scars for people aged 22 and above in all skin types1. Can any other microneedling device make a similar claim?

In a word, no.

Here’s another claim no one else can make: That their device is the first ever cleared by the FDA. Because that’s SkinPen.

SkinPen creates controlled micro-injuries to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. The result: effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact. Learn more about how microneedling triggers the three-stage wound-repair process.

Procedures take about 30 minutes, depending on the area treated and the desired results. Due to their non-invasive nature, microneedling sessions usually require little downtime for patients. Find out why patients love the benefits provided by SkinPen.

And of course, both patients and providers appreciate the impressive results shown in our before-and-after gallery.

SkinPen treatments also yield substantial ROI for practices.
