The Vampire Facelift to Rejuvenate the Skin
What Happens To The Skin During The Aging Process?
1. Skin color becomes grayer because of less blood flow.
2. Facial Shape becomes collapsed and droopy as muscle and collagen decrease.
3. Skin texture becomes less smooth. As a result, the person looks “worn”, or “tired” or “droopy.” The lively, rosy hue (seen plainly in playing children of every skin color and in young adults) fades to a dull gray.
Cosmetic surgery can remove excess skin, making the person appear younger. But, a surgical facelift can be excessive for some people (especially when loss of shape without extra skin is the main problem).
Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers lift the skin away from the bone to restore youthful volume and shape. But HA fillers can cause problems when used near the eye, so PRP ( Platelet Rich Plasma) injected into those delicate areas may be a better option for most patients facing the first signs of the aging process (mid-forties to the early fifties).
The Vampire FaceLift Procedure
First, we draw the patient’s blood, then we isolate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood utilizing a centrifuge to do so. Now that the Platelet Rich Plasma has been separated from the rest of the blood we are ready to inject the PRP.
Platelet-Rich Plasma contains important growth factors that are injected into the areas of the face where the volume loss, texture change, or wrinkles are visible. Once injected multipotent stem cells are activated to grow new tissue. This new tissue includes new collagen, new fatty tissue (for smoothness), and new blood vessels (for a healthy glow).
The difference between the Vampire Facelift and the Vampire Facial is that the Vampire Facelift utilizes HA Fillers such as Restylane Lyft, or Restylane Refyne in conjunction with PRP to create a beautiful shape and restore lost volume to the face whereas the Vampire Facial relies on the Platelet Rich Plasma for Facial Rejuvenation. The Vampire Facial uses the micro-needling process to achieve a youthful healthy appearance. The Vampire Facelift is ideal for women and men looking for more dramatic results making it ideal for the 40+ age group.
