What is a Vampire Facelift®?
Contrary to what the name suggests, this designer cosmetic procedure does not involve a facelift procedure, rather it combines platelet rich plasma therapy with hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, like Juvederm®, to rejuvenate and restore volume to the face. The platelet rich plasma is the most important factor in a Vampire Facelift® because it rejuvenates the face from the inside out. Platelet-rich plasma stimulates the body’s natural collagen production and regenerates facial tissues, which improves the overall quality of the skin and results in a smoother, younger-looking complexion.
What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP)?
Platelet-rich plasma is plasma that contains five to ten times the amount of platelets found in the blood circulating in your body. PRP contains growth factors that stimulate adult stem cells found in and under your skin, which results in the creation of new collagen and tissues, improvement in blood flow, and an overall improvement in the quality of your skin. Platelet-rich plasma is made by extracting blood from the patient and separating the plasma and platelets using a centrifuge. The PRP is then purified and reinjected into the body in the designated treatment area. There is virtually no chance of an adverse reaction to PRP therapy because the treatment is autologous, meaning it comes from your body.
Am I a candidate?
The Vampire Facelift® is not an effective treatment option for everyone. Patients with excessive loose skin due to extreme weight loss or those with severe signs of aging may not be a candidate for this aesthetic treatment. Patients who smoke may not achieve their desired results with this treatment as smoking can reduce the body’s growth factors and ability to regenerate. During your initial consultation, our staff will review your overall health and condition of the facial skin and recommend the appropriate treatment plan to suit your needs and help you achieve your desired results.
When will I see results?
The Vampire Facelift® will yield both immediate and long-term results. The dermal fillers will provide immediate improvement in facial volume and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while the PRP will provide a gradual improvement in the overall tone and texture of the skin as the body produces more collagen and regenerates tissues. The result of this treatment is a smoother, younger-looking complexion with long-term benefits for the skin. Multiple treatments may be required to achieve your desired results.
