Cosmetic surgery can remove excess skin and make the person appear younger. But, a surgical facelift can be more than what’s needed for some people (especially when loss of shape without extra skin is the main problem).
Fillers add volume to the face to restore youthful fullness and shape. But HA ( Hyaluronic acid) fillers can cause problems like lumpiness and Tindal effect. Also if not injected in the right place it can change the way the patients face looks. The HA fillers do little to improve skin tone and texture.
Unlike most procedures, the Vampire Facelift offers a way of both restoring shape, and improving tone and texture, as well as literally rejuvenating new and younger tissue!
Vampire Facelift includes the following processes-
Step 1– Use of Hyaluronic acid filler to restore the volume and shape of bony element of the face.
Step 2– Blood is taken from the patient and growth factors are isolated.
Step 3– These growth factors are now injected into the superficial layers of the skin. When these growth factors enter the face (injected by the physician), then muti-potent stem cells become activated to grow new tissue. This new tissue includes new collagen, new fatty tissue (for smoothness), and new blood vessels (for a healthy glow).
1. Creating a Beautiful & Natural Shape
In the first part of the procedure, the physician uses a US FDA approved Hyaluronic acid 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 to avoid at all costs creating an unnatural shape.
2) Isolating & Activating the Magic from Your Blood
After creating a younger, natural shape, the physician harvests growth factors from the patients own blood (hence the name Vampire) that the body would normally use to heal damaged tissue.
We draw about 10 -15 ml of blood.
Then, using a centrifuge, the we isolate platelets from that blood (platelet-rich plasma or PRP).Then we “activate” 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), we inject the separated activated growth factors back into your face in a systematic fashion. These growth factors then activate multipotent stem cells already in the skin (tricking them into “thinking” there’s been an injury and new younger tissue should generated).
The multipotent stem cells then develop into new collagen, new blood vessels, and new fatty tissue trying to “repair” the skin that was never injured!
The result…younger-appearing skin!
The effects of the procedure improve for 2 to 3 months and last for at least 1 to 2 years!
