PRP, known as platelet rich plasma therapy, offers an excellent solution for hair restoration. Hair loss due to aging, hormone changes, stress, or chemo often responds very well to PRP treatment. The procedure simply involves taking some of the patient’s blood and spinning it at a high speed to separate out powerful growth factors.
These growth factors provide a powerful signal for one’s hair follicles when injected into the area of hair loss. New hair grows in, which becomes very noticeable over time. PRP for hair restoration may involve a series of treatments for optimal benefit, and costs considerably less than hair grafting.
Atlanta Innovative Medicine offers PRP for hair restoration, which only takes an hour per treatment, is very effective and also well tolerated with the scalp being numbed. To schedule your appointment today, call 770-232-6332 or click the button below to complete our contact form.
Ask anyone who has had PRP for facial rejuvenation, and they typically will rave about how much younger it makes a person look. Known as platelet rich plasma therapy, the procedure involves a simple blood draw from the patient.
The blood is then rapidly spun to concentrate the platelets and growth factors, which are then applied to the patient’s face. Through a combination of PRP injections and microneedling, fine lines are minimized, wrinkles reduced, and the face takes on a bright glow. In addition PRP acts as a filler as well. New collagen forms, which makes the patient often look a decade younger within a few weeks.

Xeomin is the brand name for incobotulinumtoxinA, which is an FDA Approved injectable medication. As a person’s skin ages, repeated facial expressions may unfortunately turn into lasting frown lines. Not only can this make a person look older, but also cause one to look “sad”. The most common area for the frown lines to appear is between the eyebrows.
Don’t fret though, as Atlanta Innovative Medicine knows how to turn that frown upside down! Neurotoxins, such as Xeomin®, are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions so frown lines are softened. Xeomin is manufactured through a unique process that removes unnecessary proteins, so patients ONLY receive a pure therapeutic neurotoxin molecule for the greatest effect.
Xeomin is the only one of the three neuromodulating injectables (Xeomin, Botox and Dysport) that, due to its lack of additives, does not need to be refrigerated before use. It is known as “naked injectable” due to its pure state. The benefit of a pure-form injectable is that the human body is less likely to become resistant to it.
Botox and Xeomin can actually prevent lines and wrinkles from forming in the first place resulting in many younger patients seeking prevention treatment. Generally, the more treatments you receive, the longer you can go between injections because the facial muscles begin to weaken from lack of use. While Xeomin may provide exceptional cosmetic results for six months at a time, it should not be used on anyone who has experienced an adverse event from any products containing botulinum toxin.

Since its original FDA Approval back in 1989 for spasms and crossed eyes, Botox has achieved numerous additional approvals for cosmetic use. This includes injections between the brows and also for crow’s feet for reducing wrinkles. Botox is actually a toxin that prevents the release of a neurotransmitter. Muscle activity in the area stops for a period of months, which reduces wrinkles substantially. Eventually the muscle activity will return, and repeat treatment will be necessary.
Where does Botox produce noticeable results? When used in the forehead, it reduces wrinkling along with a person’s ability to scowl. This makes one look more youthful. Often times, Botox is used in conjunction with fillers to help substantially with producing a youthful appearance.
Lines and wrinkles on the lower portion of the face, usually around the mouth, can also be relaxed and softened with BOTOX injections. Around the eyes, crow’s feet are softened as well.
All in all, the providers at Atlanta Innovative Medicine evaluate each person’s desires, and then customize the treatment. For some individuals, PRP and fillers might be adequate. In others, Xeomin and fillers will achieve the objective.
