The PRP Facelift is a procedure that creates the youthful, rejuvenating effects of a facelift without an actual surgery. Instead, the vampire facelift gets its name because it incorporates PRP extracted from blood which is then mixed with different dermal fillers to give patients a refreshed look.
The PRP Facelift is a procedure developed for people who want healthy, youthful, and rejuvenated skin, but done quickly and without surgery. This procedure is able to do this by harnessing your own body’s healing and regenerative properties. The PRP Facelift is an outpatient procedure, and results can be experienced on the same day, with continual benefit of skin regeneration lasting for months even over a year after the procedure.
It creates a youthful and rejuvenated appearance to the skin, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. By using healing and growth properties housed inside your own blood alongside a dermal filler, patients will enjoy a more youthful, tighter skin appearance.
The PRP Facelift was devised in the USA. This unique and completely natural treatment has helped to restore the natural beauty of thousands of patients and celebrities around the world.
The PRP Facelift protocol uses only the most effective systems for harvesting the growth factors and stem cells and for stimulating and regenerating skin, to create the volume and shape that restores natural beauty.
The key ingredient derived from the patient’s blood that forms the basis of the PRP Facelift is a platelet-rich fibrin matrix. This property, when mixed with other ingredients, can create a natural serum that boosts collagen production, blood supply and can aid in triggering skin regrowth and fatty tissue regeneration. The procedure begins by collecting a small amount of blood from the patient’s arm. The platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is then separated through use of a centrifuge. Then the PRP is combined with hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers like Restylane or Juvederm to create the platelet-rich fibrin matrix or PRFM. It is then injected directly into multiple areas of the patient’s face.
The goal of a PRP Facelift is to achieve healthy, youthful, and rejuvenated skin, during a quick procedure that does not require surgery.
Benefits of a PRP Facelift
- Increased Collagen Production
Around the age of 25, your body’s collagen production rate drops drastically. It continues to decline at a significant rate for the rest of your life unless you do something to stimulate its production rate. Moreover, the quality of the collagen produced drops. All of this results in visibly unhealthy skin.
Whether you’re dismayed by fine lines, moderate wrinkles or severe folds or you have other visible skin issues, there’s an excellent chance that a PRP Facelift will enhance the quality of your skin through increased collagen production. Collagen production is stimulated when skin cell trauma occurs. This occurs during a vampire facial when the minuscule needles penetrate the upper layers of your skin during the microneedling portion of your treatment.
As soon as your skin is penetrated, existing collagen starts to heal the skin. At the same time, your body starts to grow new, stronger, healthier collagen. This higher quality collagen takes a couple weeks to grow. However, you will notice immediate skin tightening. You’ll just notice that the results of your treatment continue to improve for several weeks after treatment.
- Reduced Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Lines and wrinkles are among the most common reasons people seek a PRP Facelift. These common signs of aging are treated as cellular turnover is promoted. Old skin cells are recycled and new skin cells, collagen and elastin are formed. Fine lines and wrinkles are eliminated in part as your facial skin tightens naturally in response to the micro-injuries produced by treatment. The appearance of deeper folds is also diminished as hollow areas of your face are plumped up.
- Tighter, Firmer Skin
As stated previously, collagen is also essential for tight, firm skin. As you age, your skin starts to sag, but wrinkles and lines don’t always form. Facial skin often thins with age, and certain parts of the face, like the lips and cheeks, are likely to become noticeably thin and gaunt. Collagen plumps up the skin. Some people may use a vampire facelift to plump up their lips. Others use it to re-contour their cheeks without the need for an invasive medical procedure. Regardless of your skin insecurities, be sure to ask how a vampire facelift can help you achieve your ideal aesthetic.
- Improved Moisture Retention
The stronger and thicker your skin is, the better protected the deeper layers of your skin are from outside irritants. A strong skin barrier also helps to retain moisture. Moreover, it helps to unclog your pores, making your skin more receptive to prescription moisturizers. The effects of a vampire facial on pores are a little confusing because treatment can actually reduce the appearance of pores. However, you can actually benefit from the reduced appearance of pores and unclogged pores, making it easier to absorb prescription medications for the purpose of beauty enhancement.
- Enhanced Skin Tone and Texture
If you have acne scars, surgical scars, scars from traumatic injury, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation and other forms of poor skin tone or texture, you can benefit from a vampire facial. With old skin cells giving birth to new, healthy ones, you will be astounded by the mind-blowing improvement in the appearance of your skin just a few short days after one vampire facial.
