Non-Invasive Facial Recontouring

Facial remodeling is one of the most effective ways to achieve a more youthful appearance.

The most exciting anti-aging technology is now approved by the FDA. Introducing the first and only non-invasive hands-free facial remodeling device. It thins cheeks, tightens skin, melts fat, and improves jawline definition without any down time. There is no pain associated with the procedure and no need for anesthesia.
The machine is called Evoke produced by Inmode. It has proprietary technology and is an industry first, delivering a structural reorganization of the facial and submental tissues without surgery. The three-dimensional remodeling produces fantastic results without any down time.

 The worst areas that show our age are the jowls and the chin area. The skin under the chin loses its elasticity and begins to sag. Evoke targets the fibro-septal network (FSN) delivering radio-frequency energy (RF) to the subdermal layer shrinking the fibers resulting in tightened skin. This one procedure alone significantly changes your perceived age into a more youthful look.

Radiofrequency technology delivers volumetric heating to the skin’s subdermal layers. Evoke directly addresses the jowls and chin helping you achieve more defined facial characteristics.
Evoke is the most innovative non-invasive solution designed specifically to target facial tissue. It is a quick and easy non-surgical alternative to remodel your face, chin, and jawline.

Treatments are customized and tailored to address your specific needs so the end result is a natural younger looking appearance.
Evoke was created and based on the development and clinical success of the proprietary A.C.E (Acquire, Control and Extend) technology. A.C.E. technology targets deep within the skin to ensure that no area is under-treated, or over-treated, thereby maximizing results and providing consistent outcomes.

This treatment is recommended for patients seeking non-invasive facial remodeling treatments. Evoke can improve blood circulation and will provide a natural looking younger facial appearance. It is a safe and effective procedure that can be used on all skin types and skin tones.

Evoke also has tremendous function for melting fat so it not only tightens skin it also reduces the amount of fat under the dermal layer. The ability to melt fat helps recontour cheeks and chin for anyone. This technology is not just for aging. As mentioned above it is also used to thin and recontour cheeks at any age. Facial recontouring has life changing results improving self-confidence. Patients feel more attractive.

Evoke is designed with a Patient Call Button so you can easily pause your treatment at any time and have clinic staff make adjustments to ensure your comfort.

Most patients find Evoke very comfortable. During your treatment you can expect a warming of your skin similar to a hot stone massage. It is a quick and painless treatment that can be done over lunch time. You will be able to sit upright and surf the internet, read a book, or watch TV while treatments to restore youth are performed.

There is absolutely no recovery period or downtime associated with Evoke. It is quick and painless treatment that can be done over your lunch time, allowing you to return to your normal activities immediately.

It only takes 6 treatments about 1 week apart. Easy. No pain and no down time.
 

 
Forehead botox

Is Botox A Poison?


The quick, easy answer is YES but so is water. If you drink enough water, you can drown. Did you know that?

The key is ‘concentration’. Dose matters.
Dose is the key to all medicine. Every medicine requires the correct dose to work correctly. Too much and you get bad side effects. Too little and nothing happens. So, the correct dose is the right dose. This also follows with Botox.

The right amount of Botox used in the right places does a great job reducing wrinkles and reduce the etched in lines, especially in the forehead. The problem is that people will use too much and end up with a non-expressive face.

With the right dose it is not poisonous!
The right amount stops that frown and furrowed forehead. You stop looking mad all the time. I do not know why but as we age, we seem to need to frown to concentrate and think. Maybe we frown when we are younger, but no lines have formed yet.

A little bit of Botox can make you look like yourself – happy no mean frowns. Think of Botox for the forehead and a little on the crows-feet. Botox is kind of for the top third of your face and dermal filler is for the bottom 2/3’s of your face.

The next time you catch yourself frowning, think Botox!

Platelet Rich Plasma Reduces Pain Almost Instantly!!!!!

In the past two years since opening C & C Wellness, we have learned a great deal about Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). It not only heals muscle injuries, tendon rips, ligament pulls, non-healing wounds and some nerve damage, it is a pain reliever. We have observed and experienced the pain relief firsthand.

PRP is known to support the three phases of wound healing (inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling). However, it also has the ability to reduce the pain in the injury as well.

Serotonin is a chemical most of us have heard of and we think of as a neurotransmitter associated with depression. It is found in the brain, as well as the peripheral body. As a matter of fact, the largest producer of serotonin is the gastrointestinal tract.

There is a complicated ‘system’ associated with serotonin called 5-HT and 5-HT receptors. Platelets naturally release this serotonin system at the site of injured tissues. This serotonin system reduces the amount of pain associated with the injured tissues.

When we draw your blood and spin it in a centrifuge, we are concentrating the platelets for you. We inject this super concentration of platelets into an injured tissue. Not only are you getting a concentration of the healing factors associated with the platelets, but you are also getting an increase concentration of the serotonin system. You can imagine how concentrating this serotonin system at the injured site will help reduce pain quickly.

It is win-win any way you look at it. Platelet rich plasma has been known to be involved with the 3 phases of healing 1) inflammation, 2) proliferation and 3) remodeling but now we find PRP is also involved at controlling pain by reducing it.

Can Light and Sound Help Heal Alzheimer's?

As many of you know, we have an adult son with Down syndrome. What you might not know is that middle aged people with Down syndrome develop Alzheimer’s disease (AD). I therefore am always looking at the AD research. Today I found an interesting research paper from MIT.

The brain responds to many different types of stimuli. It is becoming apparent that certain wavelengths of sounds and certain wavelengths of light have healing affects on the brain, as well as, other injuries.  Click here to learn more about which wavelengths of both helped heal the brains of laboratory mice.
The researchers at MIT studied 5xFAD mice which are bred to have the physical genetics of Alzheimer’s disease. Much is known at the cellular level about Alzheimer’s disease. Not much is known about improving or reversing the devastating effect of the physical changes that occur in multiple areas of the brain.

List of known changes that occur in the brain of those with Alzheimer’s disease:

1. Formation of Amyloid b peptides which clump into plaques
2.  Formation of Tau proteins
3.  Microglial cells stop clearing out plaques and damaged neurons
4.  Aberrant neural activity

People with Down syndrome have a triplicate of chromosome 21. On this particular chromosome is a gene called APP which codes for amyloid precursor protein. With time amyloid plaques build up in middle aged adults with Down syndrome and with that cognitive decline.

What I am about to tell you is very exciting but remember this is all done in mice.

Researchers at MIT found that treating 5xFAD mice (mice bred to develop Alzheimer’s disease) with Gamma 40 Hz sound and light improved the mice’s brains in a few ways. First, the amyloid plaques decreased and were cleaned up as well as the tau proteins. The mice also performed better on memory tests. So could it possibly be that the first step in the downward spiral of Alzheimer’s disease is the loss of a brain wavelength?

We are all aware the brain has different states. For example, an EEG can measure the different wavelengths delta, alpha, beta, theta and gamma. But could it be possible this is the first step lost?

 The one study I found where the researchers used 40 Hz light therapy 2 hours a day for 10 days on adult patients diagnosed with Amyloid b plaques did not show any significant changes on pre and post brain scans.  But it was only 10 days and I have read testimonials that people using light therapy saw results in a few weeks.

Also, researchers are capable of using brain probes in the mouse. Of course, not available to human subjects.

Gamma 40 Hz sound is available for free on YouTube. Here is a link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGHbKWGgH_E

Is Your Dog's Heartworm Medicine the Key to COVID 19 Treatment

The first theorized mechanism of action (how it might work) is that the cell produces two proteins that hook together and becomes a transport vehicle (called a dimer). The COVID-19 virus produces a cargo protein which hops on this transport vehicle and gets a ride into the nucleus of the cell.

In the nucleus the virus inhibits the cell’s ability to produce anti-viral proteins. Leaving the body defenseless.

The postulation is that Ivermectin inhibits the formation of the transport vehicle (protein dimer) thereby leaving the viral cargo protein no way to enter nucleus.  The cell is able to produce all the antiviral proteins the cell needs to defend itself.

In other words, the transport vehicle (protein dimer) acts like a taxi for the virus driving it straight into the nucleus where the virus interrupts your cellular machine that makes the antiviral defenses.  Stopping the taxi services leaves the virus out in the cold (out of the nucleus) leaving your defense machinery intact and making all the arsenal you need to defend yourself.

Another mechanism discovered is that Ivermectin disrupts the copying of the viral RNA particles. The way that an RNA virus replicates itself is to use an enzyme called RNA dependent RNA polymerase. This enzyme recognizes a strand of RNA and proceeds to copy the strand over and over like a copy machine. Then each new RNA strand is packaged into new virus particles or cells and then released into the body to infect more cells and reproduce themselves over and over.

There is evidence that Ivermectin literally stops the RNA enzyme from copying the viral RNA thereby stopping many new viruses to be produced. Less viral reproduction equals less viral infection equals less illness.

The third theory postulates that Ivermectin was able to reduce the blood clots formed with COVID-19. Early on medical staff and researchers observed many patients with COVID-19 ended up with blood clots in the lungs, heart and leading to strokes. This was one of the most serious consequences to catching COVID -19.

The virus has many spike proteins on the exterior surface which attach to a receptor (CD 147 receptor) found on red blood cells, plasma cells, and endothelial cells (lining of the blood vessels). The thought is that the spike grabs onto that receptor on blood cells and vessel lining cells. One virus, for example, attaches spikes to two or more cells and then another virus attaches to the first clump bringing another cluster of cells. In the end, dangerous blood clots have formed all over the body.

The researcher found that Ivermectin blocked the viral spike from attaching to the blood cells receptor stopping the formation of the dangerous blood clots.

Researcher have found that Ivermectin even helps for a better outcome in the late stages of COVID-19 when there can be severe life-threatening symptoms. During the late stages there is a reaction called the cytokine storm. This is the immune system overreacting and causing more severe symptoms which overwhelm the body.

At this late stage of the infection the following symptoms are seen:
1. Over the top immune response (Hyper-cytokine release by macrophages).

2. Blood clots in the blood vessels (Thrombosis in the capillaries)
3. Decrease of specific immune response (Lymphopenia – low T cell count)
4. Fibrosis of cells in lungs
5. Hypoxia in the blood

In cell culture studies Ivermectin was found to inhibit a cellular pathway called STAT3. It is known that the above listed symptoms are associated with this STAT3 pathway. When patients were treated with Ivermectin even in the late stages, they had better outcomes.

The good news is researchers are beginning to see real hope with drug treatments and prevention with the vaccines. We need to be grateful such smart and dedicated scientists are decoding and demystifying COVID-19!

 

Stretching the Use of PRP Part 2

Quick update: The non-healing diabetic wound has developed a scab across the entire wound surface in only 27 days. The odor has decreased by 95%. It is remarkable to see such improvement in such a short time. The body has this beautiful miracle liquid flowing through it all the time. Platelet Rich Plasma is truly miraculous.

Stretching the Use of PRP
 

A patient desperate to try something besides wound cleaning for a non-healing diabetic wound came in 21 days ago. A diabetic non-healing wound is just that – an open wound that will not heal no matter how much time passes. The conventional treatment is to debride and clean the wound on a regular basis to remove dead and infected skin tissue.

Another conventional treatment is hyperbaric oxygen therapy. The patient breathes 100 percent pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber.  This pressurized chamber helps the blood carry more oxygen to organs and wounds to promote healing. This treatment lasts from 4 to 6 weeks five days a week.

This patient had already tried both treatments above with no success for the last 5 years.

He was ready to start something new.

The wound measured 7 cm across and 3 cm wide.

We started with 20 cc of plasma injected into wound area and the calf of the leg. The leg did not look healthy and needed healing as well.

At 20 days and 4 treatments, the wound area was decreased by a half a centimeter in length and width. Only time will tell. Stay tuned for the rest of the story………

 

Rotator Cuff Injury Treated with PRP

Range of motion improved after 2 injections with patients own PRP. It is truly You Healing You.

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) has been used successfully in the professional sports arena. There are many reports of a professional sports person using PRP on tendon or ligament injuries. A long-time patient came into C & C Wellness diagnosed with a torn rotator cuff injury. He planned on getting surgery in a few months, however he thought he would give PRP a try first. Two injections in his shoulder and within 10 minutes his pain was gone, and his range of motion improved dramatically.  I cannot explain how such a rapid  response occurs, but this is not the first time we have seen this type of reaction.
My theory is that the muscles surrounding the injury relax allowing greater range of motion. Muscles tend to tense and not let go. I know the rotator cuff has not  repaired itself in 10 minutes.
Now I am not saying we see this quick response every time, but it is worth noting that we have witnessed it with some regularity.
The long-term outcome of course will depend on the rotator cuff tendons healing the tears. I am sorry I did not video before PRP but he will tell you he could not pick his arm up over his head.
If surgery is your only alternative, it is worth trying PRP to heal before cutting and even if you do need surgery, getting PRP right after the surgery decreases pain and increases the speed of healing.
I spoke to an operating room nurse the other day and she told me they used to use PRP for surgical patients but because health insurance refused to pay for it, they quit using it. Sad that we are ruled by the dictates of health insurance and not health science. Everyone talks about follow the science but then we do not.  


For a short time only PRP injections into one injured body area is ONLY $199

PRP (platelet rich plasma) improves another difficult condition in 2 days!

Dupuytren’s contracture is a condition wherein the tissue in the palm of the hand thickens like a stiff cable causing the fingers to bend toward the palm. It most often affects the 4th or ring finger and 5th or little finger. This condition is gradual and progresses slowly over years.

We had a patient that begged us to try and use PRP  in his hand with Dupuytren's contracture.

After injecting PRP into the thick tissue, 80% of the thickness softened within 2 days. The best part is that PRP is not a pharmaceutical it is the healing factors inside of each of us.
We draw a small amount of blood and run it in a centrifuge so that the heavier red blood cells fall to the bottom and the plasma floats on top. After the plasma is pipetted into a syringe, it is injected into the injured area concentrating the body’s own healing factors.

The patient complained that when he drove a long distance his hands would lock up continuously and they had a number of long trips planned.

Two weeks after the first treatment, he reported that he drove 12 hours and his hand only locked up once. He said he is very pleased with the results. Keep you updated on his progress.

Dupuytrens Contracture

If you had the medicine that would save your neighbor's life, would you keep it to yourself?


Of course, you would share!

Covid – 19 has scared most of us into hiding but what if I told you there is a good way to treat the virus? Using antibodies from a person who has recovered from Covid- 19.

Antibodies reside in the plasma portion of the blood, therefore, transferring plasma from a person who has recovered to a person who is sick gives the sick patient antibodies to fight the virus.

The Cellular Medicine Association has setup a website to connect people who are sick with those willing to donate Covid-19 antibody plasma. The website link is https://covid19switchboard.org/

The website provides two purposes…
1. So that those who are sick from COVID-19 (or worried about becoming sick) can connect to ways to become well or stay well, and
2. So that those who are treating people with COVID-19 can find resources to help with treatment.

Another great use of plasma.

Bell’s Palsy Case Report

Bell’s palsy is a type of facial paralysis that usually affects one side of the face. The paralysis affects the ability to control facial muscles along the 7th cranial nerve pathway. It is considered an idiopathic, unilateral, acute paresis (partial weakness) or paralysis (complete palsy) of facial movement caused by dysfunction of the lower motor neuron of the facial nerve (cranial nerve #7).1 Symptoms include the patient not being able to raise eyebrow, droopy eye lid, failure to be able to close eyelid, as well as, failure to lift corner of the mouth.1 Other symptoms include tearing from affected eye while eating, light sensitivity, and sound sensitivity.2 The cause of Bell’s palsy is still unknown. Many speculate it is caused by a viral infection although an antiviral treatment did not improve treatment outcomes if given after 72 hours of onset of the BP.3

Most people with paresis make a spontaneous recovery within 3 weeks. Up to 20% of people, typically those with paralysis, have a delayed or incomplete recovery. Therefore, long term residual effects can last a lifetime with detrimental effects.
The treatment hypothesis was based on the healing properties associated with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Poor Plasma (PPP). The idea is that injections may help increase muscle function and decrease nerve dysfunction.4 PRP is known to contain many growth factors that promote healing. Some of the growth factors in PRP are platelet-derived growth factor (PDRGF), transforming growth factor beta (TGF-Beta), fibroblast growth factor (FGF), insulin-like growth factor 1 and 2 (IGF-1 and IGF-2), epidermal growth factor (EGF), interleukin 8 (IL-8), keratinocyte growth factor (KGF), and connective tissue growth factor (CTGF).5

This case report describes the effects of PRP/PPP injections in a 52-year-old male patient on the left side Bell’s palsy. The patient had residual symptoms for 27 years.  The treatment resulted in significant improvement in muscle function and decrease in light sensitivity as well as, cessation of tearing during eating. These findings suggest that PRP/PPP has the ability of facial muscle regeneration and provides a possible treatment strategy for patients suffering from Bell’s Palsy’s residual symptoms.

Ann’s Journey

Can a Vampire Facial do more than make beautiful skin?

I get a call from a good friend- Do you think PRP will help my neighbor she has ocular pharyngeal muscular dystrophy? I have no idea. First, I had to look up what OPMD is and come to find out it is a genetic disorder that affects the eyelid muscles and throat muscles, as well as, problems with the muscles of the shoulders and hips.

I was reluctant to treat her, but she called and described a burning tongue sensation that was causing so much pain she was having great difficulty eating and talking. I am a dentist after all. I could at least do an oral exam and look at her tongue.

After a thorough exam and health history, a nerve block was given to Ann to numb the tongue and PRP was injected in one side of her tongue. PRP was injected in her face and neck just as we do for Vampire Facials. It may or may not help the OPMD but her skin will look awesome.

This account will be based on Ann’s reporting of her symptoms and sensations. Keep in mind that there is no treatment currently available for OPMD and we are not recommending PRP. We are sharing one woman’s journey.

Ann’s Observation
The PRP was pretty darn amazing right out of the gate!
I got immediate results starting the following morning. My voice was stronger, less painful, and the nasal sound was gone. Since the treatment I’ve noticed that my choking is less. Due to complications of a rare form of Muscular Dystrophy, my throat muscles have issues with swallowing – that includes water. It’s been less than one week and I am watching carefully to see how this proceeds.
I’ll keep you all updated as we notice changes!

Week 2
The thing I and others have noticed is that I only choked once in the last 2 weeks while trying to take a pill. It used to be a daily occurrence. I choked on food and drink.

Choking is one of the worst symptoms of this type of muscular dystrophy. I am always concerned about aspirating food into my lungs. The muscles are just so weak in my throat. I can control my throat muscles better.

My voice is not as strong as it was but I have been using it a lot! It is hard going to shows and not talk but it is still better than it was.

Week 3
I’ve just finished my first show of the season. As a craftsperson, when I do a show, I talk the whole time, especially when there’s a constant crowd for 8 hours straight. We purchased a ‘voice box’ (a speaker set with microphone).This would allow me to still communicate once I lost my voice. Which is my standard after a few hours of talking. I didn’t need it! I didn’t need to use it. My voice held strong. Even after a full day of talking.

Later, after packing up, we ate dinner with friends. In the past by this time, my throat would normally be so weak that eating/swallowing would be next to impossible. Not the case! I was voracious! I’m looking forward to further bolstering from C and C Wellness with the PRP, to see if there’s yet further assistance that this PRP ‘part of me’ can offer!
I also want to mention that C & C Wellness made me PRP eye drops and they are pretty darn amazing. They make everything ‘Brighter’ and more colorful every time I use them. It’s a truly astounding effect! The only drawback is that they make my eyes feel ‘tight’. So I only use them about 2-3 times a day.

Week 4
I have been choking this week. Sometimes once per day but sometimes twice a day. I wonder if the effects of PRP are wearing off? I know that Dr. Cody used more PRP in my face than in my neck. Maybe more could bolster the positive effects that I experienced the first 3 weeks. I am about to do another Oddities Expo in Dallas at the end of the month. Let’s see what happens with my voice…….

Helping Hands!

If you want to guess someone’s age, what do you look at? Hands. Yes, that’s right the back of your hands give everything away. Is there anything we can do about our hands? Yes. Read on.

The skin gets super thin and loses its fullness. The blood vessels bulge out a distasteful blue. The tendons pop up as the main focal point. This describes a common picture of aging hands.
You are not stuck living with those old hands.

Dermal filler fills in the crevices in between the tendons restoring the thickness to the skin.

With the special addition of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), you lay down your own collagen and reduce the wrinkles of the skin.

Here is a side by side comparison. The right hand is the example of before treatment and the left hand is treated with dermal filler and PRP.

Scars Don’t Disappear or Do They?

One of the first of the amazing results we saw was Stanley. Stanley had a dog that was a little nervous to put it mildly. His sister, a professional dog trainer, told him to get rid of the dog. She said the dog was neurotic and untrainable. Did he listen? Ugh no.

One day he startled this neurotic dog and the dog bit him on the face. On his nose. He went to the ER but they cannot close up a dog bite due to fear of bacterial infection. The bite was in the shape of a ‘z’.

In the ER with the Dog Bite
Here is a picture of the severe bite.

Eight weeks later he is in town for business and we inject PRP around the very prominent scar. It was not only red it was raised at least an 1/8th of an inch.

Since he lives out of town, we did not see him again in the office for 12 weeks. Here is the result of one treatment of PRP in a fresh scar. It disappeared and the raised portion of the scar completely levelled out. The scar is gone and you can see his skin is glowing.

Before & After Photos

If you thought it was impossible to turn back the hands of time, you were wrong. The Vampire Facial™ procedures use all the scientific principles natural to your body to heal your facial skin. Beauty fads come and go but this is truly a healing procedure.

The changes we have seen with the facial skin are AWESOME! The skin literally glows! With all those healing factors in the PRP, the damaged and aged skin has an opportunity to heal and become more youthful. The pores close, wrinkles smooth out, the skin becomes vibrant and glowing.

When you skin your knee, your body forms a clot. It is the healing factors in PRP that first form the scab that stops the bleeding. Then over the course of a week, PRP signals the body to form new blood cells, form new skin cells, form new collagen, in other words everything the body needs to heal the skinned knee. Within a week, the scab is gone, and the area is healed. This is what PRP does for your facial skin.

In the New Beauty Magazine -Vampire Facial

New beauty magazine
Singer -Songwriter, Mandy Moore talks about the Vampire Facial in this month’s edition of New Beauty Magazine.
Mandy Moore on Vampire Facials
I love this opportunity to explain the true and lasting benefits of using your own blood to HEAL!

The last question in the interview of Mandy is what is the craziest beauty treatment? She answers, Vampire Facial. Keep in mind she is a 33-year-old, 100% model material, 5’9” gorgeous type who needs zero help looking wonderful.

She says the blood seems scary. Maybe it does sound scary but it is the most natural beauty treatment on the market. It is you healing you!

After 40, we all start to look dull! We lose the vibrancy of youth.

The Vampire Facial is the ONLY treatment that I have seen that reverses the dullness at any age!

We draw a small amount of blood and spin it in the centrifuge. The Red blood cells fall to the bottom of the test tube and the Golden Platelet Rich Plasma sits on top ready to heal your skin.

In this Golden Platelet Rich Plasma has natural chemicals called Growth Factors. They should be called Healing Factors because they activate and control the healing cascade.

Dry Eyes?

September 3, 2019
I guess Dry Eyes are not the end of the world for most of us but it is a really serious problem for some, for example those with Sjogren syndrome. [Study Link for Sjogren and PRP] The long term affects can be permanent damage. Dry eyes are very aggravating and annoying.

Now that I am in the PRP world, I am talking to many that have been in the industry a long time and advising me on the new and known applications for PRP (platelet rich plasma).
Then I did my own investigation and found some studies showing significant improvement in dry eye symptoms.

Here are the references:
Acta Ophthalmol. 2019 Mar;97(2):e170-e178. doi: 10.1111/aos.13907. Epub 2018 Nov 18.
Efficacy and safety of treatment of hyposecretory dry eye with platelet-rich plasma.

Click here for study

I can tell you the drops feel like velvet in your eyes. They are soothing and soft. (and it can’t hurt to put prp on that delicate skin under your eyes – increase collagen, thicken skin)

One patient reports her ophthalmologist can see the improvement in her eye condition and wants her to continue using PRP. It seems that most dry eyes resolve after 12 weeks of use and remain symptom free for years.

If you want to Dr. Cody about treating your or a loved ones dry eyes call her at 832-434-0855

PRP

May 10, 2019
How it can change your life!
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. It is the portion of your blood that contains at least 15 healing factors. When you skinned your knee, it was the platelet part of the blood that healed the trauma.

Now consider using PRP strategically in a hurt joint or a torn ligament, or for nerve damage, or for wound healing. This is the bodies natural way to heal and we deliver it in a concentrated manner close to the area that needs to be healed. How smart is that!

I  thank my hairdresser, Tara for this opportunity. She has been a hairdresser for 37 years (yeah, she started at 5 yo) Her right hand had a lot of damage from the repetitive motion of drying hair etc.

Before PRP Here is a picture of how much she could make a fist.

Her thumb and fingers could no longer touch. Well 6 months before, she had received a steroid shot and her pain had all but disappeared for 4 months and 4 days exactly. She was heading to get another steroid shot and I begged her not to and to let me try PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). We have used PRP in dentistry since the early 1980’s for bone graphs. She agreed to give PRP a try.
We drew 1 test tube of her blood. Ran it through the centrifuge. I then injected it into her hand where the damage was located. She asked when she would notice any changes. I had no idea what we would see. Maybe 6 weeks, I said. She texted me a picture of the next morning.

12 hours after PRP
Her fingers and thumb are touching. What? In 12 hours?
But I never expected the picture she texted the next day!
In 2 days Tara was able to make a fist!

In 2 days she was able to make a fist!  Now, I am intrigued!
I read everything about PRP I can get my hands on.

PRP has at least 15 healing factors and of course, antimicrobial factors. God knew when we skinned our knees we would need protection from E. coli and Staph.
I immediately took the next course on PRP and facial esthetics, called the Vampire Facelift ™ with Dr. Charles Runels in Fairhope, Alabama.

I will keep you posted on the different issues PRP and Stem cells heal, call my cell phone for any questions or if you want to make an appointment.  832-434-0855

For dental patients, I would like to give you a $200 gift for one procedure. Call now and start healing today.

Vampire Facial™

May 9, 2019
Vampire Facial™ is a great way to rejuvenate your face and smooth your skin. Dr. Cody is a trained provider of this procedure and a member of the official Vampire Facial™ provider list.  The PRP (platelet rich plasma) is injected in strategic areas in the face and heals the skin to a more youthful glow. PRP increases collagen which restores volume naturally.

A Vampire Facial™ uses a SkinPen to microneedle the skin causing microtrauma to activate the normal healing cascade. After your own blood is spun in a centrifuge, the platelet rich plasma or PRP is strategically injected into the face to help the healing process. PRP has at least 15 healing factors and 4 antimicrobials. It is the healing portion of the blood.
