Smoother facial skin is every adult’s dream. Various techniques for achieving smoother skin have their pros and cons, but most of them address one problem only. Several factors cause wrinkling, brittleness, discolorations and thinning dermal layers. Most of the plumping procedures, abrasive resurfacing techniques and chemical peel treatments address only a single issue.
A more complete healing procedure involves the stimulation of new tissue growth and an increase in volume and the production of collagen. The Vampire FaceLift® is a procedure that indeed stimulates the body to produce healthier skin cells. Although not really a facelift, it works to create more supple, taut skin, so the outcome is similar to what is experienced after a facelift procedure. It combines the use of dermal fillers with PRP for incredible results. If you’re not ready for surgical corrections to the facial skin, consider a Vampire FaceLift®.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections and Dermal Fillers
A Vampire FaceLift® is so-called because the patient’s own blood is used to perform the procedure. Blood contains plasma, nutrients, red and white cells and platelets. Platelets aid in clotting because they cling together and form a mesh when exposed to oxygen. They also contain important growth factors. When concentrated in the plasma, they can actually stimulate tissue regeneration.
The use of a hyaluronic acid dermal filler works to improve the overall shape and contour of the treated area. It restores lost facial volume and works in conjunction with the PRP for optimal results.
Who is a Candidate for a Vampire FaceLift®?
Mature adults who are experiencing thinning skin, dynamic wrinkles around the mouth and eyes and more noticeable discolorations such as freckles, age spots and injury scars are ideal candidates for this treatment. These problems exist because the skin contains less collagen than it once did because damaged cells continue to reproduce and thinning skin discolors more easily. A Vampire FaceLift® is suitable for all skin types and skin tones. This makes it a more favorable procedure choice than chemical peels or abrasive resurfacing.
How is the PRP Made?
We draw a small amount of blood from the patient. The blood is spun in a centrifuge. This separates the plasma and platelets from the red cells. The platelet-rich plasma is then mixed with a gel.
Once injected, the platelets concentrate just beneath the skin. The body responds as though a slight injury has occurred. Nutrients are rushed to the site, and the subsequent skin cell growth produces healthier tissue. The body also produces more collagen in the affected area. The result is healthier, suppler skin with less wrinkling and discolorations.
