In the first part of the Vampire FaceLift® procedure, the physician uses an Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler in a very specific way to sculpt a younger appearing face–while still keeping the shape natural.
Providers of the Vampire Facelift procedure take into account the mathematics of beauty as defined by much research (starting with the notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci) to avoid at all costs creating an unnatural shape.
After creating a younger, natural shape, then the physician harvests from the woman’s own blood (hence the name Vampire) growth factors that her body would normally use to heal damaged tissue.
Individual results may vary.
First, the medical professional draws about 20 cc of blood. Then, using the latest Tru PRP® technology to isolate platelets from that blood (platelet-rich plasma or PRP). Then she “activates” those platelets to cause the release from the platelets of at least 8 growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue. These growth factors work like magic to cause increased collagen & new blood flow. To rejuvenate new skin, these growth factors must be put back into your face. The whole in-office procedure takes about 60 minutes with minimal discomfort and downtime.
There are two ways of putting the magic into your face:
First, by injection after applying numbing cream about 40 minutes, the medical professional injects own growth factors back into the face in a particular way.
The second new innovative way is to put the growth factors immediately after receiving fractional laser to enhance the most satisfied outcomes.
These growth factors then activate multi-potent stem cells already in the skin. The multi-potent stem cells then develop into new collagen, new blood vessels, and new fatty tissue trying to “repair” the skin that was never injured!
The result…younger-appearing skin! The effects of the procedure improve for 2 to 3 months and last for at least 1 year (depending on individual).
• rejuvenate new skin
• help restore color and texture
• promote the healing of damaged skin, including healing of aged skin
• increase the skin volume, then the skin becomes firmer, radiant and rejuvenated
It will take a few weeks for the results of the PRP treatment to show, but with 3 to 4 top-up treatments, the results of PRP therapy can last for up to 12, or even 18 months (depending on individual). There is no recovery time and no side effects.
You can resume your normal activities immediately. Occasionally some minor bruising and redness in the injected areas can appear.
