The Vampire Facelift/Facial at Lubbock Family Medicine combines microneedling and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, and new blood vessels, creating a more youthful appearance on the face, neck, and chest. The Vampire Facelift/Facial involves a quick, in-office blood draw while the face is numbing. Using a special tube and centrifuge, PRP is isolated and then micro-needled back into the skin using a special technique. This non-surgical procedure takes about 40-60 minutes and requires minimal recovery time. You can resume day-to-day activities immediately after and make-up can be worn 24 hours after the procedure. Some patients may experience some redness with light peeling for 1-2 days after the procedure.
PRP for hair loss is a non-surgical procedure that utilizes the stem cells and growth factors from the patient’s own blood to trigger the growth of hair from resting or miniaturized hair follicles. With three simple treatment sessions, just six weeks apart, you may see improvements in both your appearance and confidence.

Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medication injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults. Xeomin® contains botulinum toxin type A, a protein purified from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines. Botulinum toxin type A – the active ingredient in Xeomin®– acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, Xeomin® can temporarily reduce the lines between your eyebrows.
BOTOX® was the first FDA-approved preventive treatment for Chronic Migraine. Since its FDA approval in 2010, 2 million BOTOX® treatments have been given to more than 500,000 people with Chronic Migraine. BOTOX® has been shown to prevent headaches and migraines before they even start. Treatment occurs on a schedule every 12 weeks, which is different from other treatments you may have taken for headaches and migraines.
Healthy, even skin with a deep glow is everybody’s ideal, but the reality is often dull, damaged skin that comes with problems ranging from wrinkles and sun damage to hyperpigmentation and acne scarring. Rather than submitting yourself to extensive processes with long downtimes, there’s a better way to get your youthful skin back.
Fortunately, Lubbock Family Medicine offers a safe and relatively gentle treatment: The VI Peel. This innovative chemical peel can improve the texture and feel of dull sun damaged skin and reduce some sun spots and hyperpigmentation. It may also reduce fine lines, wrinkling and deep acne scars. VI peel can leave your skin with an even texture and a glow from within. What’s more, it can do all this with very little discomfort and only a few days of redness and peeling.
