What is a Vampire Facelift?
When you think of a vampire, do you think of someone with eternal youth? Beautifully glowing skin? The kind of beauty that stops people – and their victims! – in their tracks?
Hollywood has always had a fascination with vampires, as they represent the ability to transcend aging so that they’re young forever. Now the cosmetic dermatology world is taking notice – and at Cobb Wellness and Aesthetics in Roswell, GA, Dr. Linda Kelley is proud to offer her patients the Vampire Facelift treatment. Dr. Kelley is among the first dermatologists in the greater Atlanta area to offer this premier treatment, which can help you look years younger with just a single treatment.
And it’s all thanks to your blood.
The Vampire Facelift Process
Perhaps you’ve seen the infamous Keeping Up With The Kardashians episode where Kim underwent a Vampire Facelift. Perhaps you’ve never heard of the treatment. Regardless, the Vampire Facelift is one of the hottest new facial treatments in the aesthetics industry today – and for good reason. The Vampire Facelift utilizes the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in your blood to help reinvigorate and revitalize the look and feel of your facial skin.
It might sound scary and complicated, but the process is actually straightforward. During the Vampire Facelift process, Dr. Kelley draws a sample of your blood, and then removes the platelets from the blood using a special separating machine. Once the platelets have been isolated, Dr. Kelley blends them with a fibrin mixture. After this step, the mixture is ready to be injected into the patient’s desired treatment area, which is usually the face.
The Vampire Facelift is ideal for patients who want to smooth away wrinkles, fine lines, and creases from the facial skin. Clients can expect some minor swelling during the process; however, the swelling usually goes down in about a day. Clients will see optimal results a few weeks after the initial treatment.
Results can last anywhere from 12 to 18 months, making this a great long-term treatment option for clients (or should we say, vampires!) who are thirsty for eternal youth

Can Micro-needling Help Treat Stretch Marks?
Micro-needling skin therapy has quickly become a force in the cosmetic skincare world. This skin renewal technique is very beneficial in treating wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and even stretch marks. Let’s find out how micro-needling uses the body’s natural healing ability to help treat stretch marks. The needling procedure may stimulate collagen production by creating microinjuries. The channels that are created allow active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and growth factors to be delivered more deeply to the skin.
How Micro-needling with the Rejuvapen can treat stretch marks
Micro-needling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure, in which a micro-roller or pen fitted with tiny needles, makes microscopic perforations in the skin. As the needles stamp the skin they penetrate the dermal layer, and this action encourages the body to repair itself.
Stretch marks or striae are streaks in the skin, which are usually the result of the excess stretching of the skin due to pregnancy, or significant weight changes. These streaks form in the dermis where the micro-roller can penetrate, and stimulate collagen production. This helps with skin renewal, and also induces skin tightening.
The new collagen that forms makes the skin smoother, and also fills in stretch marks, so that they are less noticeable. It typically takes about 6-8 treatments to achieve the required fading of the stretch marks, especially when the marks are old and deep. It is best to use growth factors along with the Rejuvapen procedure.
Active ingredients are delivered to the skin via the micro channels created by the micro roller. The superficial punctures assist with the absorption of the ingredients that can enhance the effects of micro-needling.
Although the procedure is not painful, numbing cream is applied at the start of treatment. Rejuvapen Micro-needling therapy sessions typically take about 30 minutes with 30 minute of numbing prior to the procedure. Because stretch marks are scars, you must have some patience and plan on multiple sessions typically spaced 1 month apart.

The Beauty of Bioidentical Hormones
You work hard to ensure you feel your best. You eat well, work out, and generally try to avoid the things that you know are bad for you (we’re looking at you, cigarettes and excessive alcohol use). But it seems like no matter what you do, something seems to be holding you back. You’re finding it difficult to get in the mood, or you’re constantly feeling fatigued no matter how much sleep you ended up getting.
As frustrating as these feelings might be, there are solutions you can use to feel better again – and it could be as simple as bioidentical hormone therapy at Cob Wellness and Aesthetics. Located in the greater Atlanta metro area, Cobb Wellness and Aesthetics is owned and operated by Dr. Linda Kelley, an expert in anti-aging medicines. In addition to her current menu of anti-aging treatments, Dr. Kelley is pleased to offer her clients an array of benefits that come hand-in-hand with bioidentical hormone therapy.
In essence, bioidentical hormone therapy uses natural hormones that are exactly like those found within the human body – the only difference is, these hormones are derived from plants. Bioidentical hormones can be administered in a variety of ways, including creams, pills, and even pellet therapy, where the hormones are injected into the body. Clients who see the best results from bioidentical hormone therapy typically display the following symptoms:
- Loss of sexual drive
- Lack of concentration
- Loss of muscle
- Thinning hair
- Weight gain
- Sluggish energy levels
Bioidentical hormone therapy can help improve these symptoms, as the hormones can help replace any testosterone or estrogen that is lost due to the aging process. The end results can include higher energy levels, a more robust sex drive, loss of fat, and mental clarity. Bioidentical hormone therapy can even produce significant beauty benefits, like thicker hair and clearer skin.
At Cobb Wellness and Aesthetics, Dr. Kelley can recommend, administer, and oversee your bioidentical hormone therapy. By working closely with Dr. Kelley, you can start enjoying the clarity, focus, and energy that comes from superior bioidentical hormone therapy. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Linda Kelley today to discover the beauty of bioidentical hormone therapy.Learn More

Top Procedures to Tighten and Rejuvenate the Skin
When it comes to looking your best, nothing compares to the look and feel of firm, youthful-looking skin. But perhaps during your pursuit of skin rejuvenation, you discovered that skin creams and serums weren’t all that they were cracked up to be. Maybe you were sick of spending hundreds of dollars on skin creams every month, or perhaps you became tired of investing in yet another “miracle” anti-aging product.
No matter where you are in your anti-aging fight, it’s time to get hopeful again – because two new treatments at Cobb Wellness and Aesthetics in Roswell, GA promise to help firm, tone, and rejuvenate your skin.
Based in the greater Atlanta metro area, Cobb Wellness and Aesthetics is owned and operated by Dr. Linda Kelley, an expert in anti-aging medicines. In addition to her current menu of anti-aging treatments, Dr. Kelley is pleased to offer her clients skin rejuvenation via two innovative technologies: Ultherapy and Exilis.
Let’s explore what these two treatments can do for you.
- Ultherapy: This is a non-invasive procedure that utilizes ultrasound energy to help tighten and tone the skin. When the energy permeates the skin, skin cells are re-energized; additionally, collagen production levels increase, which produces natural-looking results. Ultherapy can also contour the treatment area, which is ideal for patients looking to sculpt trouble spots. Because the skin tightens during the treatment, this disrupts stubborn fat cells, which are then removed by the body’s natural waste processes.
Ultherapy requires no downtime, but it is the most expensive of the two treatment options. Results last between 12-18 months.
- Exilis: This is another non-invasive treatment that is similar to Ultherapy in terms of size and scope. Exilis uses radiofrequency energy, which creates the kind of heat that tightens and contours the skin. In addition to skin rejuvenation, Exilis is the preferred body contouring method of the two treatments. Clients may experience a slight heating sensation during the treatment.
Exilis requires no downtime, and is the cheaper of the two options. However, to see excellent results, Exilis does require a series of treatments. Results last between 12-18 months.
No matter what your skin rejuvenation and tightening needs are, you can find the results you’re looking for at Cobb Wellness and Aesthetics, serving the greater Atlanta, GA area. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Linda Kelley today to discover more about the Exilis and Ultherapy treatments today (770) 649-0094.Learn More
Reverse the Signs of Aging with Sculptra
You pride yourself in always looking your best. That’s why you make every effort to eat right, get in a good workout, and dress in perfectly tailored fashions. Yet no matter how many expensive skin creams you slather on your face and neck at night, you just can’t seem to keep up with the march of time. Those wrinkles and fine lines seem to crop up daily whenever you look in the bathroom mirror – and your face is beginning to lose the volume that once kept those wrinkles at bay.
Fortunately, you’re not alone in your fight against the most pervasive signs of aging. At Cobb Wellness and Aesthetics in Roswell, also serving the greater metro Atlanta area, Dr. Linda Kelley and her staff members are pleased to offer a menu of anti-aging treatments designed to produce the most natural-looking results possible. Dr. Kelley has recently added Sculptra to her menu, which is an FDA-approved injectable dermal filler designed to treat the biggest signs of aging, including:
- Loss of facial volume, especially in the cheeks
- Fine lines
- Facial fat loss
- Sagging skin
Unlike Botox and similar injectables – which paralyzes facial muscles to create smoother-looking skin – Sculptra actually works with the body’s natural processes to stimulate collagen production level. As soon as Sculptra is injected into the treatment area, the skin’s collagen production level is kick-started, resulting in higher cellular turnover and smoother-looking skin.
Sculptra is also used to add volume to the cheek and temple areas. This is critical for producing the most natural results, as younger people have more facial volume. When combined with Botox or another filler, Sculptra can help create natural results that will leave your friends and family members guessing.
In order to see the results you want, you’ll typically have to go for three to four sessions. These sessions should be scheduled four to six weeks apart to achieve natural and maintainable results. Clients can expect a little bit of bruising or swelling at the injection site.

Ultherapy in the News
Ultherapy has received FDA approval for treatment of the decolletage. The results showed improvement in wrinkles and crepiness. Ultherapy uses microfocused ultrasound to heat up the tissue resulting in collagen stimulation. LMKLearn More
Juvederm Voluma XC
As we age we lose volume in the cheek and gain volume in the lower face. The youthful face is shaped more like an inverted triangle. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives a lift in the midface by restoring a more yourthful profile. This filler lasts for up to 2 years. The enhancement is natural looking and subtle.
Cosmelan treatment for dark spots
Cosmelan is a mask that is applied into the office for removing stubborn dark spots from sun damage, skin trauma and aging. It works very well for melasma, a condition of patchy hyperpigmentation more commmon in women and associated with hormone changes. This procedure requires use of a Cosmelan 2 cream at home for 6 months. It works extremely well but because hyperpigmenation tends to recur, you must follow instructions regarding skin care post Cosmelan. We use the MD formulations in our office and are seeing great results. Give us a call and set up your consultation to see if Cosmelan is for you.Learn More
