INTRODUCTION: A.N. Rafi, MD is certified by American Board of Aesthetic Medicine, American Board of Pain Medicine and American Board of Anesthesiology. He is a member of American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine, American Cosmetic Cellular Association, American Academy of Pain Medicine, and American Association of Orthopedic Medicine. Dr. Rafi is also a member of Studio PRP network, which is a collaborating group of medical providers conducting research and sharing ideas to evolve and advance the application of PRP and regenerative medicine techniques in sexual, aesthetic and muscular skeletal medicine.
PRP and Adipose-derived Stem Cells are rapidly becoming one of the most useful natural treatments in aesthetics, sexual wellness and pain medicine. Each of these procedures promises to turn back the hands of time. With this technique, isolating elements from the blood and/or your body fat, which can then be injected below wrinkles, folds and even acne scars, can rejuvenate the skin and improve body function. Because PRP is extracted from your own blood, it alleviates the risk of allergic reaction or skin sensitivity.
Dr. Rafi is the founder of FaceLine Aesthetics and Advanced PRP & Stem Cell Therapy Center. He specializes in non-surgical facial rejuvenation, overall image enhancement and sexual wellness, using primarily PRP (Platelets Rich Plasma) and Adipose-derived Stem Cell Therapies including Nano-fat.
SERVICES: Some of the unique procedures offered by Dr. Rafi are as follows:
The O-Shot® is a revolutionary nonsurgical treatment that uses a patient’s own blood platelets to activate growth factors that rejuvenate the female orgasm system, allowing more blood to flow to the organ, enhancing sensitivity and delivering dramatic improvement in sexual function.
The Priapus Shot® is designed to deliver lasting improvements in sexual performance for men, especially in those who have lost function due to an enlarged prostate, prostate cancer, the after-effects of surgery, drug side effects and other conditions, including diabetes.
Scientists have known for years that unipotent stem cells lie dormant in the skin and provide the building blocks for healing when you sustain a burn or cut. Until recently, physicians had no convenient way to stimulate these stem cells to grow new tissue.
The Vampire Series is among the first set of procedures to harnesses this technology in the field of aesthetics, using the growth factors found in the blood – specifically the platelets – to activate the unipotent stem cells in the skin and stimulate these cells to grow new, younger-looking skin.
The Vampire FaceLift: The Vampire FaceLift® is a custom-designed procedure that combines the science of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, such Juvederm®, the technology of PRP and the artful eye of a skilled physician to deliver youthful, natural beauty that is as unique as you are. The dermal filler is used to create the shape by restoring volume lost in the aging process. The PRP is used to stimulate the regenerative process of the skin, creating younger skin that glows with vitality.
The Vampire Facial: The Vampire Facial® is a very simple yet incredibly effective strategy for rejuvenating the face. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood is applied and worked into the skin with a professional micro-needling tool (Dermapen). The micro-needling tool creates micro punctures in the skin, thus activating the collagen and elastin cascades to create new cells and rejuvenation. The PRP is used to simulate stem cells that exist in the face.
The Vampire Breast Lift: The Vampire Breast Lift is achieved by isolating growth factors from you own blood and injecting into the breast tissue or nipples. The growth factors activate multi-potent stem cell to grow new tissue. This renewed tissue includes new collagen (for firmness), new fatty tissue (for smoothness), and new blood vessels for healthy glow. It can improve skin color and crinkling around the cleavage area, correct inverted nipples and decreased sensation after breast feeding, breast implants or surgery.
PRP Hair Regrowth: At FaceLine Aesthetics, we offer a non-surgical hair regrowth strategy that is safe and effective. This innovative procedure combines Dermapen® Microneedling with ACell®, PRP and nutrients injected into the scalp to encourage hair growth. ACell’s MatriStem (ACell®) is an FDA-sanctioned medical device designed for use in plastic and reconstructive surgery. Structurally, ACell® is a biomatrix that repairs and remodels damaged tissue. Effective for both male and female pattern hair loss, ACell + PRP have also regrown hair in people who have alopecia areata, eyebrow hypotrichosis and other causes of non-hereditary hair loss.
VISIA® SKIN COMPLEXION ANALYSIS
The Visia® Skin Complexion Analysis offers patients an objective evaluation of skin health. By providing a comprehensive photo-assessment, Visia® allows an individualized treatment plan to be developed for each unique patient. The best in-office and at-home therapies can be established to provide long-term results.
At FaceLine Aesthetics, Visia® Skin Complexion Analysis takes the guesswork out aesthetic treatments, by establishing a detailed look into the patient’s complexion. Results from the procedure will show the percentage of existing wrinkles, skin texture, large pores, sun-damaged skin cells, and age spots; as well as the presence of p. acne bacteria on the skin, known to cause facial acne. Visia® Skin Complexion Analysis will also provide a valuable glimpse into how the face will age with and without future treatments. Visia® can also analyze eyelashes health by measuring their length, thickness and numbers.
PRP/STEM CELLS Injections for chronic pain Conditions
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections and Stem Cells are replacing traditional orthopedic surgery in many instances for conditions that range from soft tissue injuries (tendonitis, muscle tears, ligamentous injuries) to various joint afflictions, such as a torn meniscus or mild to moderate arthritis of the joints. Regenerative techniques can be tailored to meet each patient’s orthopedic needs wherever he or she is experiencing pain.
These are prescription medications that can be used to treat a variety of conditions. When used for wrinkle reduction, Dr. Rafi will inject appropriate amounts of the medications under the skin to partially and temporarily paralyze the underlying muscle. That paralysis prevents you from the squinting or scrunching that are the cause of the wrinkles while still allowing you facial expressiveness.
Injectable Dermal Fillers
Juvederm®, Radiesse®, Restylane®, Sculptra®, Belotero®: Dermal fillers are injectable medications used to plump up areas of treatment. Commonly, they are used on the face to help enhance shallow contours, plump the lips, soften facial creases, remove wrinkles and improve the look of recessed scars. Also used for cheek augmentation, correction of nasolabial folds & under-eye hollows.
Autologous Fat Transfer
Your own body fat makes excellent soft tissue filler material. Fat injection transfers fat from one part of the body to another to re-contour the face; diminish frown lines, tear trough (eyes), crow’s feet and nasolabial folds (smile lines); and provide definition to areas like the cheeks, chin, breasts & buttocks. It can also be used to fill out depressed scarred areas on any part of the body from poor liposuction or other surgeries.
Medical Grade Chemical Skin Peels
Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, Salicylic Acid, TCA, VI Peel™, Jessner’s Peel, and Perfect Peel™: Chemical Peels improves skin tone, texture, minimizes fine lines, brightens dull, uneven complexion, controls acne, and fades discoloration due to sun damage, making your skin firm and younger looking.
