A Vampire FaceLift® Harnesses All Natural Growth Factors for New, Youthful Skin
The Vampire FaceLift® is a non-surgical facial rejuvenation technique that has helped many women look as young as they feel. It uses injections of the patient’s own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to spur growth of new, healthy skin cells and increase blood flow, resulting in glowing, youthful skin tone. Meanwhile, the treatment itself is quick and convenient. To learn more about the Vampire Facelift®, contact our practice serving the St. Louis area today.
An Effective and Convenient Procedure
Your Vampire FaceLift® will begin with about two teaspoons of blood collected via a simple blood draw. The blood is then processed into PRP by isolating the platelets, which contain growth factors that heal injured tissue. The blood processing takes less than fifteen minutes, and while you wait, a special topical numbing cream will be applied to your face to ensure your comfort. A filler containing hyaluronic acid (a substance that occurs naturally in the human body and contributes to skin elasticity) is then injected into targeted areas of the face, usually around the eyes and lips, and along the brow. This creates a lattice in which the PRP can provide its rejuvenating effects. Finally, the PRP is injected. The entire procedure should only take about an hour and a half. Because there are little or no side effects or downtime, most patients can return right away to their everyday activities.
A Safe, Virtually Risk-free Treatment
The Vampire FaceLift® has helped many to achieve rejuvenation without any report of severe side effects or complications. Injections of your own PRP carry virtually no risk, and injections of hyaluronic acid-based filler carry very low risks that can be assessed on an individual basis long before your treatment. Only minor side effects have been reported: mainly mild bruising, swelling, or discoloration at the injection sites. These typically resolve in a day or two, and are more prevalent among patients who are especially prone to bruising.
Most patients will notice improvement in the texture, coloration, and volume of their skin right away. The treatment will also provide a gradual overall improvement to the appearance and feel of the skin as the growth factors continue to stimulate your body’s collagen production. It may take up to three weeks to see a sustained increase in skin volume and elasticity, and most patients experience the full benefits after about seven weeks. Patients can expect their treatment to last about two years, and can return for a second treatment a few months after the first for more pronounced results.
