Each treatment will consist of a consult and then in-depth review of your general medical and previous aesthetic procedure history. Dr. Rusilko will use your history and your beauty goals to assess and recommend the best support possibilities to facilitate long lasting beauty benefits by balancing the internal workings of the body as a whole.

Medical Beauty

The appearance of our skin, hair, and nails is dictated by how well our internal biochemistry is balanced. Physiological stress results in numerous aesthetic manifestations such as thinning hair, acne, hyper/hypo pigmented blemishes, brittle nails and loose skin. Managing these manifestations from the inside out allows for more powerful and intense corrections and that in turn produce longer lasting effects of the beauty procedures.

Lifestyle medicine uses several approaches to correcting and alleviating internal stressors through hormone balancing, medical nutrition/detox, and IV therapies.

Hormones such as IGF-1 and peptides play a critical role in the repair, rejuvenation, and regeneration of collagen and hair follicles. Optimizing these concentrations in the body allows for healthier looking skin, stronger nails and fuller hair. Coupling this with concentrated medical nutrition and detoxification using uniquely the uniquely formulated Beauty and Cleanse IV regimens support and prime the body’s ability to systemically rejuvenate by providing essential nutrients and removing the toxic build up.

As with all programs at LFSTM, suggested controlled diet programs are provided and encouraged to promote a long lasting overall effect for the years to come.

  • Volume Enhancement
  • PRP

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

PRP Therapy leverages the body’s ability to heal and regenerate and works to enhance the appearance of skin as well as increase volume in areas of the body that have fallen or ‘caved’ naturally with aging. It is very simple and relatively pain free procedure that begins with the extraction of the patient’s own blood. The collected blood is then prepared for PRP injection by first being centrifuged and then activated with calcium chloride. This super concentrated mixture is then introduced under the skin with multiple injections with a microneedle to the desired area to fi ll decreased volume. Or it can also be micro-needled into the skin which has been popularized in celebrity culture and labeled “The Vampire Facial.”

In combination with the PRP, unique peptides are combined to the process that further aid in the plasmas ability to heal and regenerate. An injection of PRP contains a high concentration of platelets rich in growth factors that work to stimulate the body’s ability to heal.

Areas that can be treated with PRP:

  • Cheeks Jawline, and Chin
  • Naso Labial Fold & Under the Eyes
  • Elbows, Knees, and Scars

PRP administration can take approximately 45 minutes and can be done in the office or by concierge appointment in your home or hotel room. Patients can expect that results will be most visible within 2-3 weeks, and will last approximately 3 months. For maximum benefits, it

is recommended that patients adhere to a PRP program in which the procedure is repeated on a quarterly basis.

After a treatment typical superficial reactions may include; slight redness, swelling, itching and bruising at injection sites, pain and tenderness. The reactions are generally mild to moderate and usually disappear shortly after injection. These minor symptoms typically resolve spontaneously within one or two days.

Success rates on PRP rely heavily on the current medical condition of that patient. As this process utilizes the body’s ability to heal and regenerate on its own, optimization of the system as a whole is a must prior to any treatment.

Who shouldn’t receive PRP?

  • Heavy smokers, drug and alcohol users
  • Platelet Dysfunction Syndrome or Anti Coagulation Therapy
  • Sepsis or with Acute and Chronic Infections
  • Chronic Liver Pathology

Hair Regeneration

Things such as hormone deficiency or over abundance, toxicities, stress, genetics and even what you are eating can factor into why your hair is falling out. We first must diagnosis the root cause of the problem before we can treat it effectively.
