What is the Vampire® Facelift?
Technically, it’s not a facelift at all. It’s a cosmetic procedure that combines injectable hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, with components of your own blood.
Vials of blood are placed in a centrifuge and spun at high speed. The centrifuge separates red blood cells from plasma — a golden yellow liquid known as PRP. PRP, platelet rich plasma, is the part of your blood that helps stop bleeding and heal wounds.
PRP has been used by many people to help heal and repair tennis elbow, tendonitis, and arthritis, and now it is being used cosmetically to help fight the visible signs of aging. With the Vampire Facelift, injectable fillers give provide volume and the PRP stimulates cell and collagen growth.
What is the Vampire® Facial?
The Vampire Facial is a procedure that uses growth factors from your own blood to rejuvenate the skin. A tube of blood is drawn from you just like you are having a routine blood test performed. It is then spun down and the plasma is harvested. This plasma is rich in growth factors and when microneedled into your skin it stimulates the production of collagen.
Vampire® Facial Benefits:
Improvement in fine lines and wrinkles
Firming of the skin
Softening of acne scars
This rejuvenation appears very natural and uses your own growth factors. It is a perfect procedure if you do not want injections like fillers and Botox. Typically you leave the office red and somewhat swollen. All of this typically resolves in about 2 days, depending on how aggressive we are during your procedure. We recommend 4-5 sessions, spaced 2-4 weeks apart depending on the desired result.
The Vampire Breastlift™
The Vampire BreastLift™ helps women restore fullness to the upper part of the breast and in the cleavage area. While this procedure will not enhance breast size, it will give patients a younger, healthier look and reduce creepiness in the décolletage. The PRP is injected into certain areas of the breast and the growth factors can also restore sensitivity to the breast that may have been lost from breastfeeding or previous implants.
