What are some words that come to mind when you hear the term “vampire”? Is one of those words “blood”? Because that’s where the name of the Vampire Facelift came from; the secret to looking younger may be in your own blood!
Human blood contains healing factors that can be used to revitalize your skin, and the Vampire Facelift treatment uses a combination of a concentrated solution of these healing factors—called platelet-rich plasma (PRP)—and hyaluronic acid fillers to enhance the shape of your face and make you look stunning and youthful.
The Vampire Facelift offers several benefits, the most notable of which being that it makes your face look younger. Other benefits of this cutting-edge, non-surgical procedure include:
Since the Vampire Facelift uses your own cells to create the PRP, there is no risk of an allergic response or your body rejecting the PRP. The Vampire Facelift also has minimal downtime, and the effects can last for up to a year!
The Vampire Facelift is done in three steps:
The dermal filler can be one of many products, such as Restylane or Juvederm, which use a sugar called hyaluronic acid that naturally occurs in the body. For purposes of the Vampire Facelift, hyaluronic acid fillers are injected in a specific manner to make the face appear younger. The number of and placement of injections will depend on your cosmetic needs and the shape of your face, as well as taking into account the mathematics of beauty as defined by years of research, starting with the notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci.
The Vampire Facelift is sometimes called the Vampire Blood Facelift due to its use of the patient’s blood to prepare platelet-rich plasma (PRP). The PRP is easy for an expert at Genesis Health Institute to prepare; all they have to do is draw about two teaspoons of blood from your arm, then isolate platelets and other growth-inducing proteins from the blood by spinning it at high speed in a machine called a centrifuge for a few minutes.
The resulting PRP is then activated by addition of calcium or a protein called thrombin, and then injected areas of your face that are carefully selected by a Vampire Facelift expert based on your cosmetic needs.
The PRP then works its magic by stimulating stem cells in the skin, tricking them into thinking there is an injury and causing them to develop into new collagen and blood vessels.
This results in a younger, healthier, and glowing complexion.
The Vampire Facelift involves under-the-skin (subcutaneous) injections of PRP. On the other hand, the Vampire Facial uses topical application of PRP with microneedling, which is a procedure that involves insertion of many extremely fine, short needles into the skin to trigger development of new skin proteins. Also, the Vampire Facelift uses hyaluronic acid fillers; the Vampire Facial does not.
Before the Vampire Facelift, you may look tired, worn, and aged. The end result of the Vampire Facelift is an enhanced face shape, smoother skin, and an overall healthy glow.
And most of all, you will look younger after your Vampire Facelift!
There is no downtime after a Vampire Facelift. However, during the first three days following the procedure, you may experience the following symptoms:
The rough skin texture may persist for up to a week after the procedure, but you can go back to your normal daily routine after your appointment, and light make-up should hide any redness! The rejuvenating effects of a Vampire Facelift can last up to a year after the procedure, and can be repeated if you so choose.
