DETAILS.What it Treats:
The Vampire Facelift® uses Growth Factors of plasma, which is isolated from the patient’s own blood using a centrifuge. Activation of the plasma results in the release of at least 8 different growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue. These growth factors work to increase collagen and elastin, promote angiogenesis (or the formation of new blood vessels) and improve blood flow to create that youthful appearance that comes with healthier, plumper tissue.
One of our Practitioners will perform a consultation to determine the best course of treatment for you. You will be counseled on the Vampire Facelift® and given instructions on how to prepare for your procedure.
Prepare the plasma
First, your blood will be drawn. Using a centrifuge, the blood will be spun to isolate platelets. This portion takes approximately 12-15 minutes in the office.
Inject the Filler
Next, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed with alcohol and an antibacterial soap. Next, the Practitioner will inject Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler in a very specific way to sculpt a younger appearing face, while still keeping your natural shape.
Inject the plasma
Using numbing cream and a very small needle (for almost no pain), the Practitioner injects your own growth factors back into your face in a particular way. These growth factors then activate multipotent cells already in the skin, tricking them into “thinking” there’s been an injury, and new, younger tissue is generated.
