“I can say with the utmost confidence that the results show a remarkable improvement when implementing Dr. Runels’ Vampire® techniques. Fine lines improve and diminish, texture improves, and the general color of the face improves. The Vampire Facial® is also exceptional in the treatment of acne scars as well as stretchmarks.” -Debbie Russell
“Remember, it is very important to consult with a certified provider of the Vampire Facial® who uses an FDA-approved sterile system to obtain Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), and who is supervised by a Vampire® certified physician.

Meet Jack W. Anderson, MD
Physician / Anesthesiologist
Debbie Russell Aesthetics is honored to introduce you to the newest member of our team: Dr. Jack W. Anderson.
Born and raised here in the capital city, Dr. Anderson is one of Montgomery, Alabama’s very own. He earned his Undergraduate degree at Auburn University and then went on to receive his Medical Doctorate from The University of Alabama’s Birmingham campus (UAB). It was at UAB that Dr. Anderson became interested in pursuing Anesthesiology. He continued the development of his craft, through decades of skillful practice in the field of anesthesiology, until taking his career back home to serve the Montgomery area in 1995. Because of his unmatched precision and technique, he was offered the role of Medical Director at Montgomery Surgery Center– a position he served in for 13 years.
Because surgical anesthesia is where Dr. Anderson got a bulk of his medical experience, to say that he is “good with a needle” would be a massive understatement. His mastery and finesse are most evident in his patient’s results. His knowledge of facial anatomy combined with his confidence and experience with needles, lends itself to a minimal amount of bruising or micro-trauma. Many would say that his artistry is unparalleled, especially when it comes to Botox and other injectables/fillers, which makes him a welcome addition to our team of experts!
