Dr. Prasad was a featured speaker at The Aesthetic Show at The Aria Hotel in Las Vegas on to teach physicians about his techniques for performing PRP (platelet rich plasma) treatment and The Vampire Facelift. “I was impressed by the large number of people who attended the lectures and workshops,” comments Dr. Prasad. “I know from doing these procedures for a long time that people are very happy with using their own material to restore volume in the face and have glowing skin.”
Dr. Prasad discussed the benefits of an authentic Vampire Face-Lift Procedure as well as other Vampire PRP applications including combination PRP therapies as the future of autologous skin rejuvenation and repair.
You’re losing hair. Looking into the mirror and seeing the hair you once took for granted disappear can be devastating. More than 50% of men are affected by hair loss. It affects 30% of women and approximately 50% of women after the age of 50.
Drugs such as Rogaine, Propecia and treatments such as hair lasers and hair transplants are a multi-billion dollar industry worldwide. When it comes to hair, “greed is good.”
Numerous psychological studies have shown that a full head of hair makes you look younger, energetic, and even more trustworthy. Having hair is a sign of strength and power. Unfortunately, drugs like Rogaine work only on some men and have limited benefits for women. Women can’t take Propecia. Recent concerns about sexual side effects have limited use of Propecia.
Hair transplant surgery has come a long way but the procedure still carries the stigma of the “pluggy look”. Dr. Gary Hitzig, a hair specialist for over 35 years, has developed the first successful “hair cloning” procedure which he and his partner, Upper Eastside Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Amiya Prasad have named “Hair Rescue™.” Dr. Hitzig has developed a process using an FDA cleared material called “ACell” which activates your own adult stem cells. ACell is currently being used to help U.S. soldiers with major injuries and has even been shown to grow back an amputated finger- including the fingernail and the fingerprint!
Dr. Hitzig was the first hair specialist to investigate ACell after the FDA allowance for human use in 2008. Drs Hitzig and Prasad have developed systems of combining ACell with a concentrated part of the blood rich in growth factors called “platelet rich plasma” (PRP). This treatment uses the patients’ own platelets and combines them with the ACell, activating malfunctioning adult stem cells in areas of hair loss and rescuing thinning hair.
“In contrast to a surgical procedure, men and women with thinning hair can come in and have the treatment the way you do for Botox or Restylane”, comments Dr. Prasad. People have come for the treatment from all over the world from places such as Australia, Italy, India and New Zealand.
Does it last? “At this point, we haven’t had to repeat a treatment for 2 years. We treat our clients on an individual basis and customize their treatments. Keeping your hair from thinning further is in itself a success. Call it a ‘vaccine’ against hair loss.” explains Dr. Hitzig.
As Dr. Prasad discusses, “In a world where we are living longer, working longer, having children at a later age and participating in online dating, looking your best is more important than ever. We have made a major advance in the battle against hair loss. At this point, the only thing you have to lose . . . is hair.” (Download a PDF of the AVENUE Magazine Article. )

PRASAD MEDICAL SKIN CARE: “SUITE” GIFTS AT SUNDANCE
Prasad was the “doc” to watch at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, and by “doc” we do not mean documentary. Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Amiya Prasad’s medical grade skin care line was a hit at the Talent Resources Gifting Suites at the Gateway Center in beautiful Park City, Utah. Alongside other TR Suite sponsors (such as Sean John and DL1961 Premium Denim), Prasad Medical Skincare gave the celebrities extra special gifts, leaving everyone feeling extra special.
Great for all skin types and ages,Prasad Medical Skin Care made a suitable gift for the celebs. One actress with a film premiere at Sundance commented, “Do you have anything for underneath my eyes? I just saw myself on screen, and I realized I’ve got to start doing something about my skin.” She gladly accepted the Eye Rescue by Prasad, “this couldn’t come at a better time.”
The men were not shy about their interest in taking care of their skin either. For actors such as Wilmer Valderrama, Casper Van Dien, and The Bachelor’s Ben Flajnik, we recommended the pH Balance Cleanser and Daily Toning Pads by Prasad Medical Skincare. For NFL athletes Jared Odrick and Thomas Howard, the Moist Silk Defense SPF-30 was a must-have. “Shameless” star William H. Macy had no shame in getting the Skin Survival Kit for his wife Felicity Huffman.
Another grateful guest (who just so happens to be a producer), added, “did you know culturally the name ‘Prasad’ means ‘sweet gift’? So thank you for this!”
New York based, Dr. Prasad understands extreme weather, so he also gave away complimentary tropical lip balm for all those who would be walking around in the cold, snowy streets of Park City during the 2012 film fest. Prasad Medical Skin Care recently became available for online purchase at www.prasadmedicalskincare.com where anyone who needs the full line of medical grade skin care products can have it shipped right to their door.
We were excited to see our Prasad Medical Grade Skin care products reviewed on the Social Media site Joonbug.com. Joonbug is NY’s Definitive Guide To NYC Events & Nightlife. Read their review below.
If you’re not familiar with Dr. Amiya Prasad, he’s a renowned Manhattan plastic surgeon. We know the word “plastic surgery” is still pretty scary for a lot of us, but Dr. Prasad’s approach to skincare is simple, effective and excellent for all skin types and ages. Whether you battle acne, sensitive skin, dry skin, rosacea or wrinkles, Dr. Prasad has a solution for you. No fancy packaging or frills, just quality products that are fragrance-fee and PH balanced. We personally used his products before reviewing them and can attest that they do exactly what they claim.
Some of the products we tried were the PH Balance Cleanser, the Gentle Cleanser, the Silk Defense SPF 30 and the Moist Silk Defense SPF 30. Most importantly the products did not clog our pores, irritate or cause any reactions on our normally sensitive, finicky skin. There’s no fragrance or fillers, just effective ingredients. Highly fragranced products are so irritating and unnecessary, so it was refreshing not feel like we were putting perfume on our face. We even took our eye makeup off with the cleansers and experience no stinging or problems.
Dr. Prasad also offers an array of spa skincare services, such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, fillers and more, if you’re looking for a little extra help.
More on Prasad Medical Grade Skin Care
Going from cold exteriors to warm interiors frequently can create a flushed red-faced complexion. This is caused by the straining of blood vessels in the skin, especially on your face. These temperature changes can unfortunately result in broken capillaries. Using a topical or cream that contains peptides can help protect and plump up your skin so the broken veins won’t show! We recommend Prasad Medical Skincare’s COLLAGEN PEPTIDE GEL for your face and EYE RESCUE for beneath your eyes as peptide solutions for your skin during colder weather.
Prasad Medical Skincare’s Collagen Peptide Gel is a Hyaluronic acid-based gel designed to enhance skin moisture, reduce signs of photoaging, and increases production rate of collagen to erase fine lines and wrinkles. Containing peptides such as Palmitoyl oligopeptide and Palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7, short-chain amino acids that mimic fragments of human collagen, the peptides in this facial gel are demonstrated to increase the proliferation rate of human dermal fibroblasts which produce collagen, thus improving the dermal support matrix and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, the Collagen Peptide Gel contains Glycosaminoglycans and Sodium chondroitin sulfate, clinically demonstrated to inhibit matrix metalloproteinases which are generated by UV exposure and can break down collagen and elastin fibers within the skin. This product is a water-based vehicle that is oil-free, fragrance-free and non-comedogenic, appropriate for use under make-up, sunscreen or moisturizer, or as a light-weight moisturizer for acne-prone skin. Applied to the face and neck every morning after cleansing for best results.
Prasad Medical Skincare’s Eye Rescue is a high-potency combination of ingredients specifically addressing the needs of the eye area, combining protective anti-oxidants, soothing emollients and firming peptides. Eye Rescue helps to diminish the appearance of dry skin, fine lines & wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles under the eyes. Eye Rescue contains Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, which stimulates collagen production, provides anti-oxidant protection, inhibits cell damage and provides skin clarifying and brightening actions by lightening melanin granules. This anti-oxidant activity is supplemented by Vitamin E acetate and Green Tea. Eye Rescue also contains Acetyl hexapeptide-3, a short-chain synthetic peptide that inhibits muscle contractions in the skin, resulting in muscle relaxation and smoothing of dynamic skin wrinkles.
Prasad Medical Skincare also has other great medical grade skin care products that can keep your skin healthy and young all year long!
New York’s Dr. Amiya Prasad explains and performs The Vampire Facelift™ on a patient. Dr. Amiya Prasad was trained by Dr. Charles Runels, inventor of the “Vampire Facelift™, and now offers his patients in New York and Long Island The Vampire Facelift™. Used to treat hollowing under eye area and cheeks losing volume with age as well as the area around the mouth, The Vampire Facelift™ is a great non-surgical solution without any downtime.
The patient undergoes a Vampire Facelift™ performed using a combination of hyaluronic acid (such as Restylane or Juvederm) with platelet rich fibrin matrix (activated platelet rich plasma or PRP) using the Selphyl of RegenLab system in an artistic way to restore the lost volume in the face. Dr. Prasad’s Vampire Facelift™ patients enjoy natural results using their own blood that is then specially processed for use as a natural filler for the face, eyes, cheeks and mouth with immediate results and minimal bruising and swelling.
Administered like an injectable filler, the benefit of the Vampire Facelift™ continues over time after the procedure as the growth factors in the blood stimulate the body to create collagen and new blood vessels which create a beautiful complexion to the skin and enhance the face.
Dr. Prasad offers the Vampire Facelift™ procedure at his offices in Manhattan and Garden City, Long Island.
To schedule a consultation with Dr. Prasad for the Vampire Facelift™, call 212-265-8877 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
