What Is a Vampire Facelift?
A traditional facelift requires invasive surgical cutting and the removal of excess, sagging skin, all leading to a fairly long recovery marked by pain and swelling. But if you’re looking to achieve smoother, brighter and younger looking skin without going under the knife, the Vampire Facelift® could be a great alternative. This advanced method introduces an entirely new experience to rejuvenating your skin and fighting the signs of aging. And the best part is, there’s little to no downtime after the procedure.
Technically, the Vampire Facelift® procedure is not an actual facelift, as it does not use surgery to reposition or remove any skin. Instead, this innovative procedure relies on growth factors found in the body’s own blood cells. When combined with hyaluronic facial filler, these growth factors have the effect of “magic,” repairing and rejuvenating damaged, aging skin. The Vampire Facelift® procedure is done in three steps. Here’s more about each:
The Vampire Facelift® Procedure
Step 1: Sculpting Your Skin
To give your face a younger, smoother appearance while maintaining a natural shape, you doctor will begin the procedure by injecting hyaluronic acid filler into the targeted areas. Later, the effects of these fillers are boosted with your body’s natural growth factors.
Step 2: Retrieving “Magic” From Your Blood
The next step is extracting the growth factors from your blood. You doctor will draw just two teaspoons of your blood and isolate the platelet rich plasma. When activated, the platelets release growth factors that your body would normally use to heal damaged or injured tissue. When these growth factors are used to stimulate your skin, they increase natural collagen production and create new blood flow.
Step 3: Using the “Magic” to Rejuvenate Your Facial Skin
Now that the growth factors have been isolated, your doctor will strategically inject them back into your face. The injections are done with a very small needle, which along with numbing cream, makes for a nearly painless experience. The growth factors react with stem cells in your skin, signaling them to act as though your skin has been injured and needs repair. Although your skin is not actually injured, the stem cells react by creating new blood vessels, collagen and fatty tissue that have a rejuvenating effect on your face. The effects of the Vampire Facelift® continue to improve for a few months and last up to two years!
