PRP, Dermal Fillers Help Client Look 10 Years Younger

“Dr. B—I want to express my deep gratitude for the services which you have provided me with over the past several months. You have accentuated my natural features, rather than adding something to my face that wasn’t there to begin with. When I look in the mirror in the morning, I feel like the best version of myself. The outside now matches how I feel on the inside, energized and eager serve and to take on life’s challenges with confidence.” — Email from Sarah* to Dr. Banerjee

Sarah, who is in her mid 30s, first came to Halo when she was looking into lip augmentation. She wanted a natural way to add volume to her lips. “I had no intention of doing anything beyond that,” she says. “Even that was a stretch for me.”

But after her initial consultation with Dr. Banerjee, Sarah did some additional research about dermal fillers and PRP and saw the appeal. Since her first visit, she’s returned to Halo for a PRP facelift in combination with dermal fillers, PRP breast rejuvenation, PRP hair regrowth and laser skin resurfacing.

“I always believed that beauty comes from the inside out, and now I believe my outside sparkles a lot more—just like the inside,” Sarah says. “I felt every time I went, I was looking younger and feeling better about myself.”

Looking Younger, Feeling Better

Sarah is thrilled with how much younger she looks. She says the combo treatments she received made her skin plumper and more youthful-looking right on the same day.

After looking at old pictures during her recent move, she could clearly see the difference in herself. She firmly believes she looks 10 years younger. “When I look in the mirror in the morning, I feel like the best version of myself,” she says. “The outside now matches how I feel on the inside, energized and eager to serve and to take on life’s challenges with confidence.”

Friends and family are noticing the differences, too. While Sarah was spending time with her family recently, her sister said Sarah’s hair was growing in and looked a lot thicker. Then, Sarah sent her friend a video from a trip she’d recently taken. She hadn’t seen her friend in several months, and her friend said, “You look so bright and glowing since the last time I saw you.”

A Unique, Natural Look

A huge benefit for Sarah is the natural beauty these treatments accent.

“I live in L.A. now, and it’s like home of the plastic people,” she says. “Everyone looks like they have the same surgeon. What I love about Halo and Dr. Banerjee is that she doesn’t make you into something you’re not.”

For others who may be considering anti-aging treatments, Sarah says she can understand people who are hesitant to do any treatments because she’s been there. But now, having done some procedures, she says, “Just a little filler here and there, it really makes you look 10 years younger. Just a subtle change can make a big difference in your appearance.”

A Great Experience with Dr. Banerjee

In addition to the great results she’s seen, Sarah says the entire experience with Dr. B and the Halo team has been positive.

“I work in healthcare, and it is rare that a doctor will spend more than a few minutes evaluating the patient,” she says. “I appreciated that Dr. B took her time, sat with me, and really listened before making any recommendations. She also was available on evenings and weekends if I had any questions. And her team always follows up the day after to ensure I’m happy with the results and recover is going well.”

Even though she lives on the West Coast now, Sarah says she will definitely be back to Halo for services when she’s back in town visiting.

How PRP Therapy Helped One Client ‘Feel Great Inside and Out’

“Dr. B. has helped me feel great inside and out. This may be the best I have ever felt. Everything she recommends is grounded in science, which I really like.” —Holly Shoumake

You could say that Holly Shoumake is the “face” of Halo Medicine as she works at Halo’s front desk, but she also has had a PRP face lift with beautiful results. Holly wants to share her experience, because she is so happy with the benefits of PRP therapy.

PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma and is a part of a category of medicine called Regenerative Medicine. In simple terms, the process involves taking a small amount of your blood, concentrating your blood’s platelets, and then injecting the resulting platelet-rich plasma into an area of your body in need of regeneration.

Why Holly Chose PRP Therapy for Herself

Holly first became intrigued with PRP by witnessing the results in Dr. Banerjee’s clients. “I talked with happy clients daily who showed me before and after pictures with noticeably younger looking faces or thicker hair,” she says. “They looked fantastic. I got interested in the procedure and asked Dr. Banerjee about it.”

Dr. Banerjee explained to Holly that she uses PRP therapy to perform non-invasive face lifts, breast lifts, hair regrowth or to improve incontinence and sexual function. After careful evaluation, Holly decided to proceed with several areas of PRP therapy, including PRP for face lift and hair regrowth.

How PRP Therapy Works

PRP Therapy begins with a simple blood draw that takes under five minutes. After the platelet-rich plasma is prepared, Dr. Banerjee injects it through a micro-needle into multiple places at the site of treatment. Holly said the procedure was not painful at all, because the areas were numbed.

After treatment, it takes 4-6 weeks to start to see the results for the PRP face lift and 6-8 months to see the full impact of the PRP hair regrowth. The results last for up to 18 months. It has been several months since Holly’s therapy, and she feels she is seeing an excellent response.

Holly Sees and Feels Results

It took about a month for Holly to see the results on her face. People she knows started to comment that she looked younger and really refreshed—rejuvenated. She had not told many people about the procedure, which made it all the more validating that friends were noticing. Holly noted, “At about the 6 month mark, my husband looked at me one morning and asked if I had another procedure done. He was really seeing a difference! PRP therapy results get better and better over those first 6 months.”

PRP stimulates the body’s natural collagen production, which is the “scaffolding” for skin. The additional, stronger scaffolding helps to reduce the skin’s laxity and reverse damage that contributes to wrinkles. Holly’s face looks smoother and tighter, while appearing very natural. Dr. Banerjee’s philosophy is to help her clients look their best, and she carefully counsels them on expected outcomes of treatment options. Holly has also started to see new hair growth and is excited about achieving the full results in the future.

During her career, Holly has worked closely with other physicians in medical practices, but none have impacted her life like Dr. Banerjee. As a double board-certified MD, Dr. Banerjee truly understands the human body and her client’s needs. “Dr. B. has helped me feel great inside and out. This may be the best I have ever felt. Everything she recommends is grounded in science, which I really like,” explains Holly. “I am really happy I did PRP therapy and feel lucky to work with Dr. Banerjee every day.”
