The Vampire Facelift Is a Non-Surgical Facelift Known as Platelet Rich Plasma Facelift
Recent technological advancements have made it possible to rejuvenate by use of your own blood’s proteins. This may in some cases delay a surgical facelift. At My Petite Medispa Dr. Leoni has been using PRP technology for a variety of treatments. Platelets are being extracted from your own blood to rejuvenate tissue. The results is a much plumper, fresh looking face, chest or neck. The underlying layers of skin to work to rebuild themselves.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
Platelet-rich plasma (Abbreviation: PRP) is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets. As a concentrated source of autologous platelets, PRP contains (and releases through degranulation) several different growth factors and other cytokines that stimulate healing of bone and soft tissue.
In other words Platelet-rich plasma is the concentrate in the blood that aids healing and regeneration. As mentioned above this therapy has been used for years in healing therapies. Platelet-rich plasma was first used as an effective agent for bone and tissue repair within the field of dentistry. Its applicability then expanded to other fields, including plastic surgery, orthopedic surgery, cardiac surgery, ophthalmology, and sports medicine..
PRP, The Facelift
PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma. This science is not new and it has been tested for years. It’s a scientific technique that’s been used for decades to speed healing after surgery, especially for elite athletes who need to return to the game. It is the same technology responsible for revolutionizing the Cosmetic Industry.
How Does the Vampire Facelift Work?
The Vampire Face Lift is also referred to as: The Platelet Rich Plasma Face Lift has become the best non surgical face lift available on the market today. As we age our skin color changes, as does the texture, and with the decrease of collagen our face shape shifts. Liquid Facelifts, and Face Lift Threading have been two of the procedures that have slowly taken the place of the traditional Facelift.
Cosmetic Surgery Face Lift Costs may be just one of the reasons why, as well as reduction in scars and down time. However, these surgeries did not solve some of the evident concerns of the aging process. Visibly, as we age:.
1. Skin color becomes more gray because of less blood flow.
2. Facial Shape becomes collapsed and droopy as muscle and collagen decrease.
3. Skin texture becomes less smooth. As a result, the person looks “worn”, “tired” or “droopy.” The lively, rosy hue (seen plainly in playing children of every skin color and in young adults) fades to a dull gray.
With the introduction of Dermal Fillers, we have been successful in working with the facial matrix and rebuilding the blocks of collagen, hence restructuring or sculpting adding volume and proportion.
The Platelet Rich Plasma addition to this element is the pinnacle, the answer to regaining vibrance to the skin color and tone, while filling the collapsed areas, and regaining the smooth youthful texture..
1. Creating a Beautiful & Natural Shape
At the onset of the Vampire FaceLift® procedure, the physician uses an Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler (like Restylane or Juvederm) in a very specific way to sculpt a younger appearing face–while still keeping the shape natural.
Providers of the Vampire Facelift (R) procedure take into account the mathematics of beauty as defined by much research (starting with the notebooks of Lonardo da Vinci). This is to avoid at all costs creating an unnatural shape. These ideas about the HA fillers are not commonly known even among the best of cosmetic surgeons and constitute part of the intellectual property protected by the trademarked name (Vampire Facelift®).
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.
2) Isolating& Activating the Magic from Your Blood
First, the physician draws about 2 teaspoons of blood.
Then, using a centrifuge, the physician isolates platelets from that blood (platelet-rich plasma or PRP)–all within about 10 minutes in the office!
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.
(3) Injecting the Magic into Your Face
Using numbing cream and a very small needle (for almost no pain), the physician injects the woman’s own growth factors back into her face in a particular way.
These growth factors then activate multi-potent stem cells already in the skin (tricking them into “thinking” there’s been an injury and new younger tissue should be generated).
As a result blood flow is increased. An increase in blood flow, results in optimal oxygenation, and nutrition, resulting in diminished dark circles, a more rosy skin tone, a rapid cell turn over, and collagen formation.
This procedure is used with success for scar tissue and even hair loss.
What Is PRP Injection For The Face?
The Vampire Face Lift, is the best cosmetic enhancement that technology can offer and it is scientifically proven to work. At its core the Vampire Face Lift, also referred to as the Platelet Rich Plasma Face Lift, is a procedure that involves isolating growth factors from your own blood intended to boost your own natural collagen formation, increased circulation, oxygenation, and rapid cell turnover.
As a result, skin color, texture, and collagen boost together lend a very soft, yet marked improvement in all these areas of concern. This is something the traditional face lift could never accomplish, and the very reason why this new technology is the absolute best non surgical face lift on the market today.
During the surgical facelift, the Surgeon works with underlying facial muscles in order to pull the muscles. The results are at best obvious and unnatural. Collagen, and increased circulation are some of the key elements at work with the prp face lift. Collagen, builds the underlying tissue and oxygenation brings about a shift in tone and hue to the skin surface
