Are you seeing signs of aging in your skin? Cosmetic surgery can remove excess skin and make you appear younger, but a surgical facelift may be more excessive than some people need. If you’re seeing these three signs of aging in your skin, you may be a perfect candidate for a vampire facelift or vampire facial. (Don’t let the name scare you!)
Signs of Skin Aging
- Skin color appears grayer because of less blood flow.
- Facial shape appears collapsed and droopy as muscle and collagen decreases.
- Skin texture becomes less smooth and skin looks worn, tired, or droopy.
Unlike most procedures, the vampire facelift offers a way of restoring shape and improving tone and texture as well as literally rejuvenating new and younger tissue. How is this done?
Naturally found in your blood, platelets are a rich source of proteins called growth factors, which promote healing and regeneration. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains a higher concentration of platelets than the amount normally found in your blood. To create PRP, a sample of your blood is drawn and placed in a centrifuge, which separates out the platelets. These concentrated platelets are recombined with your blood plasma to make platelet-rich plasma, which is then reinjected into the problem areas.
PRP injections are a more natural alternative to Botox and fillers. Platelet-rich plasma is injected, just like a filler would be, to create and stimulate your body’s own growth factors. PRP produces collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin, and smooth the skin, maintaining the facial contours of the natural look of the patient. It is a truly regenerative treatment that involves harvesting the body’s own wound healing and regenerative growth factors to improve skin texture as well as age-related changes like fine lines and laxity.
With just four to six PRP treatments over a two- to four-week period, patients are seeing results that last for up to two years—so over the long-term, it is a very cost effective and 100% safe treatment. With your own PRP, you don’t have to be concerned about toxins or chemicals being injected into your body.
For the “facelift,” the PRP is injected into various areas of the face to create a plumping effect. Using numbing cream and a very small needle (for almost no pain), the physician uses a specific method to reinject the woman’s own growth factors into her problem areas. These growth factors then activate multipotent stem cells already in the skin, tricking them into thinking they are responding to an injury and generating new, younger tissue. The procedure is safe because it’s free of toxins, utilizing the patient’s own blood to naturally create new tissue. The body begins to “repair” itself and regenerates collagen, elastin, and healing properties, which create a youthful appearance.
The facial works in much the same way as the “facelift,” but with tiny perforations in the skin instead of injections. These tiny perforations allow the PRP to penetrate into the dermal layers, and the results continuously improve the glow of the skin within two to three months. Many patients report smoother, firmer skin, a brighter complexion, and less noticeable dark circles.
Rejuvenate your face naturally. Your beauty will be revived with a natural face shape, increased collagen, smoother skin, increased blood flow, a youthful glow, and a younger appearance.
