Vampire Facelift® Introduction
The Vampire Facelift® is a procedure developed for people who want healthy, youthful, and rejuvenated skin, but done quickly and without surgery. This procedure is able to do this by harnessing your own body’s healing and regenerative properties. The Vampire Facelift® is an outpatient procedure, and results can be experienced on the same day, with continual benefit of skin regeneration lasting for months even over a year after the procedure.
Why the Vampire Facelift®?
With many ways to rejuvenate the face, why look for a better way?
Cosmetic surgery can remove excess skin and make the person appear younger. But, a surgical facelift can be more than what’s needed for some people, especially when loss of shape without extra skin is the main problem.
With the use of hyaluronic acid fillers we lift the skin away from the bone to restore youthful volume and shape. But hyaluronic acid fillers can cause problems near the eye. Also, the injector of hyaluronic acid fillers can chase a wrinkle and create a shape that looks foreign to the person’s face.
The hyaluronic acid fillers do little to improve skin tone and texture.
Unlike most procedures, the Vampire Facelift® offers a way of both restoring shape, and improving tone and texture, as well as literally rejuvenating new and younger tissue!
Vampire Facelift® Before and After
What to Expect
The Vampire Facelift® is a very safe procedure. With a Vampire Facelift®, we use PRP, or platelet rich plasma. We take some the patient’s blood and spin it down into a centrifuge. This will give us the plasma, which has the platelets in it. We then remove and discard the red blood cells, and are left with a yellow serum that has all the growth factors. The serum has all the great factors of blood, plus the platelets, which stimulate everything to grow inside, such as the collagen. This makes new blood vessels and is optimal for your skin. We then inject the PRP into your face, just underneath the skin. Over time, you can get around 10-15% more volume in your face, which can last a few years. It takes about 8 weeks to see. The procedure also gives you a better glow. It helps with your pores and your blemishes, and it gives you overall, healthier looking skin.
While your cheeks are full from the PRP injection (cheeks will be full for four or five hours), we also take filler, and will put that in the cheeks and lower eyes. The filler is injected through the same tiny cannula injection hole. The filler will remain for six or seven months. Overall, everything is performed in one procedure that typically only lasts an hour. Adding the filler help with wrinkles that are present, and when combined with the PRP treatment, can really help improve your appearance and give you a younger and more rejuvenated look.
