The Vampire Facelift®
The Vampire 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.
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 key ingredient derived from the patient’s blood that forms the basis of the vampire 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 vampire facelift® is to achieve healthy, youthful, and rejuvenated skin, during a quick procedure that does not require surgery.
