What is PRP or PLASMA? Where does it come from? How do you extract it? How do you prepare it? What can it be used for?
PRP is concentrated growth factors from your blood that we isolate and use to generate new healing. This has many applications including; chronic pain treatments, facial rejuvenation and collagen building, hair growth, wound healing & more.
This is an aesthetics procedure that brings back the volume to the face. Great for filling in hollows under the eyes, lifting cheekbones for a youthful look, diminishing nasolabial lines, enlarging and filling the lips. We use the most advanced technology from around the world to offer our patients the best. With our technique that utilizes a plasma gel machine patients get better and longer lasting results. We suggest three treatments 21-30 days a part. This is because on day 21 your body starts cross linking collagen and the growth factors signal to your body to put more collagen in the areas we have treated with the PRP.
A popular muscle relaxant that reduces/removes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the eyes, on the forehead and the area between the eyes called the glabella. Botox is also good for “bunny” lines on the sides of the nose, to reduce frown lines at the corner of the mouth and other areas of the face. Botox has also shown too decrease tension in the TMJ from clenching and some cases of migraines. Lasts an average of 3 months.
Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, the provider simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. Removing epidermal skin also allows products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers. This is a great treatment to offer to patients who are pregnant or nursing who want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on skin.
“Oxidative damage causes aging. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant. We recommend a series of glutathione IV drips following any aesthetics procedure and as anti aging maintenance. Glutathione is also essential in your body’s detoxification process and highly recommended in a detox protocol. Glutathione has shown to decrease lines and wrinkles and increase the hydration of the skin. Glutathione is also excellent for hyperpigmentation treatment (dark or brown spots on the skin.
We can also prescribe a special glutathione cream for you to use at home!”
PRP is growth factors from your own blood. In this treatment the prp is injected into the outer labia for rejuvenating and plumping the tissue, around the clitoris for increased sexual stimulation, and inside the vagina at the G spot; for rejuvenating the tissue inside the vagina and increasing the G spot. Expect to see results at 21 days, although patients have reported immediate effects as well.

Reduce age spots, freckles, and dark patches (melasma) due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills. Improve the look and feel of skin.
An ozone IV is vital in any anti-aging protocol. It is anti-microbial so kills viruses, bacteria, candida, and parasites. It is an excellent treatment for both chronic and acute infections. Ozone works as a modulator, so it can bring you up if you are low in something, or bring you down if your are excessive in something. Because of this and other reasons ozone works great in autoimmune diseases, chronic infections, and as an adjunctive cancer treatment. Ozone has been shown to suppress the herpes virus. Macular degeneration is an age related degeneration of eyesight that has shown impressive improvements with ozone IVs. Ozone activates the mitochondria which are the powerhouses of our cells and make energy, for these reasons ozone is great for fatigue, sports recovery and detoxification. We recommend a minimum of 3 ozone IVs before any PRP aesthetics procedure to keep the body healthy to rebuild the area for which we are applying the prp.
Ozone IV Benefits:
- Suppresses Viruses including
- Increases immune system

Luscious lips are a timeless sign of beauty and youth. Traditional fillers for the lips typically last 6 months; this is why we love Volbella so much! It lasts about 12 months and is excellent for natural looking enhancement of the lips.
Many of us may notice veins on the legs that were not there before. The god news is you do not have to live with it. This is more common for those of us that have occupations or hobbies that require long periods of standing like nursing, or hairstyling. For those that do stand for long periods we do recommend using compression stockings to prevent spider veins.
The procedure is relatively painless as we use Asclera and not hypertonic saline for our sclerotherapy. Typical treatments are 30 minutes and we wrap your legs with compression bandages. Your aftercare will be to wear compression stockings day and night for the first 2 days and then daily for 2 weeks. This is to prevent the veins from re-opening. The process takes 6 weeks for completion as your immune system will come in and cleanup the un-needed veins after treatment.

I am excited for the results of my test to find out if I'm allergic to anything and I am sure she will help me get through my health issues. I referred Dr. Melanie to my sister who had the tests to see what she was allergic to and is very happy with the results and the service."
Great staff and professionalism
"I really enjoyed my session. Dr Icard and her assistant gave me the utmost quality of care i have ever known. The one on one consultation was easy and inviting. The procedures were done with great care. I would highly recommend the Anti-aging Clinic. I'm a customer for life."
Love Love Love this place!!!!
"It is difficult to find a naturopath as well rounded and offering as many services as Dr. Melanie does! Her energy and enthusiasm is contagious and I want to send everybody I know to her for inspiration and healing! I love that she offers free clinics to expose more people to what is available! I have certainly found someone I hope to work with for many years and can refer friends and strangers too!"

“Anti-Aging clinic was very friendly and hopeful as it our first time. They walked us through each step of the way! We actually just moved from GA to AZ and they provide some many hot spots and placing to visit. I am was very pleased, and so was my partner.”
“Greetings: For those searching for a healing experience along with an impressive array of anti-aging, non-invasive procedures, I strongly advise checking out Dr. Melanie and her impressive, professional staff. Don’t let the relaxed friendly atmosphere deceive you. These are effective, well trained and caring professionals. While Dr. Melanie is quite engaging and disarming, be advised that she really knows her healing craft, and is up to date on the latest, advanced procedures. My experience was with the Blood Ozone, which I had thoroughly looked into and was rewarded with very effective treatment and care. I would urge anyone to investigate this modality, and Dr. Melanie and her staff provides the best you can get. I needed relief from cancer radiation side effects. The treatments reversed the negative side effects. My energy and vitality quickly returned from the first treatment through the third. Actually it was quite amazing and the clinical environment is really what the medical profession should aspire to – friendly, caring, while professional and effective. From the onset, Dr. Melanie sat me down and spent the time with me in order to truly tailor just what I needed – far from the assembly line approach previously experienced and delivered from the mainstream. Her staff is experienced and literate- obviously employed with great care and consideration. I was treated like a real person from the beginning throughout. My wife experienced the same and is also progressing nicely. We feel like we have found a medical home We are so happy and grateful to have found her along with her super staff. ”

There is just something special and unique in their techniques and I can not express enough that you KNOW THEY CARE!!!! You walk away already feeling better and seeing improvements. I want to tell the world about this. You just have to go to know what I mean. Love yourself enough to JUST GO there! I Promise, you'll thank yourself!"
“I am retired. I play the violin, read, take care of my family and cats. I was diagnosed with dry macular degeneration three years ago, and was not able to be treated by traditional doctors. My condition feels like you’re looking through smoke that doesn’t clear up. Not being able to read books and music kept getting worse. I made an appointment with Dr. Mel on April 15, 2015. After my first ozone treatment with IV and UV light, I noticed that I could read the numbers on my scale. The next week, I noticed that I could read my speedometer numbers in my car. Just last night before my 6th treatment, I noticed I could read my digital alarm numbers from across the room. I believe I will keep getting better.”
Migraines, Eye Vision Facials and more
"I don't usually write reviews but I have been treated by Dr. Melanie Icard since she opened her practice and she has been AWESOME. She is over the top and very much different from any other clinics, she is a wonderful doctor that has treated/controlled with ozone therapy my terrible migraines and helped improve my eye vision. She takes time and listens to all your health concerns and comes up with solutions in different ways to come to the root of the problem, it can be by ordering lab work, help you with the diet plan, detox, vitamins plan,etc.
What I like from her is that she is very human and her assistant Neomi is great too. It is a very relaxed environment and the facial treatments are the latest, I just tried the mesotherapy and European facial with growth factors and love the results. I highly recommend Dr melani Icard, she has been amazing treating my health issues, have educated me with my diet and vitamins that I should be taking on the daily basis plus her facial treatments have rejuvenated me."
