Vampire Facial

Jolie Vie Aesthetics is excited to now offer the Vampire Facial!

Have you all seen Kim Kardashian’s Vampire Facial picture and/or video??

Well, now you can get the same miraculous procedure right here in our Arkansas office!

The Vampire Facial was previously somewhat known was the Blood Facial, but I guess people decided vampire was a pretty word than blood! HA.

Here is a great video describing details of the Vampire Facial, Microneedling and PRP.

What are the benefits of microneedling?

– Improves fine lines and deeper wrinkles
– Reduces acne scars
– Softens stretch marks
– Evens skin tone
– Lightens hyperpigmentation and sun spots
– Reduces appearance of pores
– Firms and smooths skin texture
– Heals scars
– Reduces broken capillaries and spider veins
– Brings back the glow for fresher, younger-looking skin

What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?
We obtain Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP, by drawing a small amount of blood from your arm into a sterile tube. This sample is centrifuged to separate your plasma, which we use for the treatment, from your red and white blood cells. Plasma contains high concentration of platelets, stem cells and growth factors. Platelets help your tissue heal and grow new cells.

Historically, PRP has been primarily used in orthopedic medicine, dentistry and reconstructive surgery to help speed recovery. Now cosmetic dermatology also uses it to help damaged, aging skin grow new collagen and elastin for beautiful, youthful results.

What are the benefits of microneedling with PRP (Vampire Facial)?
When PRP is used with microneedling, it penetrates your skin through the tiny channels the microneedles create. The PRP supercharges the microneedling benefits. PRP also addresses under-eye puffiness and dark circles to give you a more youthful, well-rested appearance. Since PRP is derived from your own blood, the side effects are virtually eliminated.

How else is PRP used?

PRP has many other applications. For example, PRP can be used to:

Perform the “Vampire FaceLift®” and “Vampire Breast Lift®”
Treat thinning hair
Perform the “O-Shot®” for female sexual dysfunction and stress urinary incontinence
Which areas of the body can be treated with microneedling and PRP?
Face
Neck
Décolleté
Arms
Hands
Legs
Abdomen
Back

Who is a good candidate for microneedling with PRP?
Microneedling with PRP is a very safe and effective treatment for adults with all skin types who wish to improve their skin quality. The depth of the MicroPen can be adjusted to meet the client’s individual needs and objectives. Due to its low-risk profile, Microneedling with PRP is a good option for people who are not good candidates for lasers, such as those with darker skin types. MicroPen with PRP is also a very powerful tool for treating scars on the face and body.

How is the microneedling with PRP procedure performed?
First, we apply a topical numbing gel to the treatment area for optimal comfort. Then we insert a new sterile cartridge containing 12 microneedles into the MicroPen and select the appropriate depth setting based on your skin’s unique needs.

We apply your prepared PRP solution to the treatment area before and after the microneedling procedure to ensure that the PRP gets fully absorbed. We can also apply other therapeutic serums to further address your specific skin condition, such as melasma or hyperpigmentation.

What does microneedling feel like?
Since we apply a topical numbing cream prior to the treatment, discomfort is significantly lessened. Microneedling feels like light sandpaper being moved across the skin. Also, the post-treatment hydrating gel will help with recovery.

How long does the procedure take?
About one hour total. The numbing process takes about 30 minutes. While you are numbing, we draw your blood and centrifuge it to obtain the PRP. The microneedling takes about 30 minutes, depending on the treatment area.

What is the downtime after the microneedling with PRP (Vampire Facial)?
The downtime is minimal with only one to three days of mild redness, depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment. A post-treatment kit will help speed your recovery.

When will I see results after the Vampire Facial?
You’ll notice an immediate “glow” to your skin and it will continue to improve over the next few weeks. The full results can be seen up to 6 months post treatment as collagen production continues.

How many treatments are needed with the Vampire Facial to see optimal results?
We recommend a series of at least three treatments about four to six weeks apart to see the best results. You can then do the treatment about once a year to maintain these results.

The Best Fall 2017 Makeup Trend for Your Zodiac Sign

We love this article from ELLE.com! Read below to find out the best fall makeup trend according to your zodiac sign!

GETTY IMAGES

The eyes have it for fall 2017—or should we say, the penetrating gaze. As maximalist Jupiter sets sail in seductive Scorpio from October 10, 2017 to November 8, 2018, we have ample reason to dress those windows to the soul. Self-possessed sass is also au courant, as Jupiter sharpens Scorpio’s sting which makes us think of Jim Carrey’s bon mot, “Behind every great man is a woman rolling her eyes.” Whether you’re throwing shade or a come-hither glance, here’s the look your zodiac sign just has to try.

Aries
Taurus

It’s high season for romance as Jupiter the gambler places his chips in your house of everlasting love. Apply the Twiggy lashes and make it obvious that you’re batting your eyes. And when you’re ready to make it all Instagram official, this look has “photo shoot” written all over it.

Gemini
IMAXTREE
The upside-down eyeliner trend has Gemini written all over it. Your dualistic sign knows that there are two sides to basically everything. So, why have we ignored the lower lid for so long? That changes now—so bring that (Gemini) Pat McGrath glitter shadow south of the lash line.
Cancer
Leo
Virgo

You’re in true, Mercury-ruled form this fall, Virgo: curious, impulsive and on the move. With intrepid Jupiter in your third house, your attention span will be shorter than usual. Variety is the spice of your beauty game—and you’re feeling pretty fearless. Widen your palette with pops of bright colors—oranges, turquoise and lilacs—and paint graphic shapes around your lids. Bonus: Your outré vibe will be the perfect icebreaker during this ultra-social cosmic cycle.

Libra

Sweet simplicity! After thirteen months of unprecedented expansion, you’re ready to restore some equilibrium to those Libran scales. And that means embracing the art of “low-maintenance chic.” What if you could pare down to one, perfect pink palette? Good news: Dusty rose blush gets parallel play on both cheeks and eyes this season. Swipe on a top-coat of clear gloss for extra shimmer.

Scorpio

From celestial spy to scene-stealing Samurai? This could be your end-of-year evolution, Scorpio. From October 10, 2016 to November 8, 2018, live-out-loud Jupiter zips through your sign, a once-per-decade transit that wakes up your warrior spirit. With painterly makeup trends that verge on tribal, get ready to battle anything that stands in your way.

Sagittarius

Extra dream time is required for Archers this fall as your galactic guardian Jupiter slips into a celestial sabbatical until November 2018. You might as well sleep in. Super smudged liner is all the rage and you could redefine #IWokeUpLikeThis with the help of Mr. Sandman. (Though wearing yesterday’s makeup every day, is…ew.) For added impact, try a smoky eye topped with a dusting of glitter. Hello, Dark Crystal

Capricorn

Conventionality, be damned! You’re breaking every mold this fall as daring Jupiter sweeps through your edgy, eccentric 11th house. Wave your neon mascara wand for a futuristic effect—or take it even further with epic extensions worn on both the top and bottom lashes. NSFW? Probably not. But with this Jupiter cycle afoot, you may have a lot more wiggle room than usual when it comes to what’s considered stylistically “office-appropriate.”

Snoring can STOP!

Do you snore? Or, do you know someone that does?

Snoring can be a major issue for many people. In our previous post, we told you a little bit about our Fotona Laser machine. Well, not only does it do so many amazing treatments for the beauty of your skin, but it can help treat a number of other issues as well.

Fotona’s NightLase® therapy is snoring and apnea treatment. It is a non-invasive, patient-friendly laser treatment for increasing the quality of a patient’s sleep. NightLase reduces the effects of sleep apnea and decreases the amplitude of snoring by means of a gentle, laser-induced tightening effect caused by the contraction of collagen in the oral mucosa tissue.

Simple, Safe and Effective

Fotona’s patented Er:YAG laser modality optimizes the length of laser pulses, allowing for the safe penetration of heat into the oral mucosa tissue. It is gentle enough to be used on the sensitive tissue inside the mouth, but strong enough to provide clinically efficacious heating.

NightLase is easy for any doctor or dentist to perform and has a high success rate in producing a positive change in sleep patterns. Research has shown that NightLase reduces and attenuates snoring and provides an effective, non-invasive way to lessen the effects of sleep apnea.

A Patient Friendly Solution

A full course of NightLase consists of three separate treatment sessions over a six week period. The final results of the treatment have been shown to last up to a year, and the therapy can be repeated.

Patients find NightLase to be a highly comfortable and satisfying solution. NightLase requires no device to be worn during sleep and involves no chemical treatment. It’s a gentle and easy way for your patients to regain a good night’s rest.

Superior Performance

All LightWalker and SP Line systems are equipped with a high performance Er:YAG laser that maximizes ablation efficiency with proprietary VSP (Variable Square Pulse) technology, which can be accurately tuned to varying “cold” ablation and non-ablative thermal ratios. Full customizability allows you to precisely attain the clinical outcomes your patients desire.

The Nd:YAG laser on each system perfectly complements the Er:YAG laser’s ablative action with the ability to penetrate deeply into the skin to create thermal effects without damaging the skin surface. Compared to conventional Nd:YAG technologies, Fotona’s proprietary VSP pulses create virtually instantaneous temperature increases that are limited to the targeted structures only. No unnecessary energy is deposited into the skin.

Handpieces & Accessories

Fotona’s specially designed, innovative handpiece technology allows safe, precisely controlled and optimal delivery of laser pulses to the treatment area.
