What is a Vampire Facelift?
This procedure is not nearly as scary as it sounds. The Vampire Facelift is one of the safest and least invasive options out there for cosmetic procedures.
While it is known colloquially as Vampire Lifting, this procedure is distinctive because it combines an HA filler with platelet-rich plasma to correct the shape and texture of the face while also enhancing the overall color of the skin.
To accomplish this, an HA filler is used to sculpt the face into a more beautiful shape. Then, a PRP serum is developed from your blood to harness the natural healing power of your body by driving more blood to select areas of the face. This will rejuvenate the overall color and texture of the face dramatically enhancing your overall appearance.
The cosmetic procedure is non-surgical and can be used to treat wrinkles, acne scars, and other skin irregularities. It has even been shown to be effective in patients with alopecia and hair loss.
In some ways, Vampire Facelifts work like other facelifts. The procedure is used to reduce the number of wrinkles, causing it to look smoother. However, Vampire Facelifts are different because they do not require surgery.
Instead of pulling your skin tighter, potentially giving you a “skeletonized” appearance, Vampire Facelifts inject HA fillers to mold the face into your ideal shape. Then use a serum made from your blood to add color and texture.
This is important because your blood has platelets and pluripotent growth factors. These are factors in your blood that naturally heal and restore. When this serum is injected into your skin, it provides a healing boost to the skin even though it was never injured.
When you get a Vampire Facelift, you can stimulate fresh collagen and elastin production. You can also enhance fatty tissue and generate new blood vessel growth. This will cause your skin to naturally rebuild itself with a luminous glow, improved texture, and even complexion.
The science behind a Vampire Facelift is complicated, but the actual procedure is simple. The whole process is completed in four easy steps.
Preparing the Canvas: First, your face will be analyzed to calculate what areas need to be corrected to enhance your overall beauty without subtracting what already makes you naturally beautiful. Your face will then be prepared with light numbing cream to avoid any pain you might feel with the procedure.
Provide Beautiful Shape: By using fillers like Restylane or Juvederm, it is possible to provide a lift to the skin and shape the face. The shape is very important to your appearance, which is why this step is recommended for comprehensive beauty enhancement.
Harness Your Natural Healing Factors: It is time to start restoring the youthful glow and elasticity of your skin. A small sample of your blood will be taken in the office. This blood sample is then processed in a centrifuge, which allows the platelets to be isolated and activated. The process can be completed in about 10 minutes.
Inject Your Custom Youth Serum: Once the serum is ready, it is delivered with a small needle. Once injected into the layers of the skin, the serum effectively fools your body into starting the healing process for a youthful appearance over time.
Recovery and Maintenance: Minimal recovery time is needed, and most people can start normal activities the next day. To maximize the impact of the procedure, you may use various creams and lotions to promote blood flow to the new growth areas.
With these revolutionary techniques, it is not surprising that the benefits are vast when you use Vampire Facelifts. Although the results may vary, the rejuvenation is natural and enduring.
If you have the treatment done on your face, you can expect to see the natural signs of aging diminish. You will have fewer wrinkles and you’re fine lines will be minimized. The procedure can also provide more volume to sagging skin.
Some people also use Vampire Facelifts on their necks. Here, the process will tighten the skin and smooth away wrinkles. It can even be used on the back of the hand to restore a smoother, more elastic appearance.
Vampire Facelifts are also good at minimizing the appearance of scarring. Many people have used this procedure to lessen the appearance of acne scars or pitting on the face. It can also be used in other areas of the body to deal with stretch marks.
With all this, you will not only look younger, but you will feel more confident. Beauty is not simply an outward appearance. Looking your best can help you feel your best, which is why you should consider Vampire Facelifts for your personal wellness goals.
The procedure itself is short. It can easily be completed within one hour. Once the blood has been processed, the injections take around 30 minutes.
The effects, however, last much longer. Most people start to see results within the first week. The effects are not immediate because it takes time for the PRP serum to spark natural skin regeneration.
The full effect of the treatment is usually visible within one month. However, the power of the treatment is that the serum continues working after the procedure. Your skin will naturally rejuvenate itself for months after your treatment. Most people see the results for up to 12 months.
Because Vampire Facelift uses natural elements from your body, it can be repeated as often as desired. There is no risk of negative reactions. This gives you the power to create a customized treatment plan for your specific beauty goals.
In general, most people get between annual treatments. Your specific treatment plan will depend on your goals. If you are trying to target specific scarring, then you may need more frequent treatments.
Another great reason to consider Vampire Facelifts is their quick recovery time. Most people can resume normal activities the next day. In general, your recovery will not last longer than 72 hours. During recovery, you are encouraged to rest. However, there are few restrictions or limitations.
The Vampire Facelift is a very safe procedure. During the process, the pain is minimal. Your skin will be treated with a numbing cream to keep any discomfort at bay during the needling.
The side effects are also minimal. Because this process uses your blood, there is no risk of incompatibility or overcorrection.
Typical side effects are mild and may include redness, swelling, peeling, itching and bruising. For most people, these side effects resolve within 72 hours.
