One of the best examples of a new and trendy product that has taken the aesthetics industry by storm has got to be the vampire facelift, this amazing new anti-aging facial treatment allows patients to be able to improve the look and feel of their skin tissue, without the need for highly invasive surgical measures such as a facelift or chin lift. By doing this, they ensure that patients are able to attain the high-level results they want without the need for a long drawn out recovery period, any unwanted side effects or risks. In this article, we will be exploring the vampire facelift and what patients should know about it and whether or not it really works or not, or if its just a new trend to jump on.
The Vampire Facelift
To many individuals who are heavily into the aesthetics and cosmetic enhancement world, the vampire facelift has slowly become a favorite, as it allowed many to attain some of the best possible results from using a nonsurgical method. The vampire facelift is a procedure that helps to restore and rejuvenate the skin tissue, and eliminate a wide variety of different effects that occur as a result of aging, and poor skincare habits over time – it is unique as it combines the use of injectable dermal filler with PRP therapy. The procedure helps to provide youthful skin tone, texture, and tightness, and incorporates a few different aesthetic enhancement procedures that are known to be highly effective in their own right. The vampire facelift gets its name from the PRP or platelet rich plasma therapy aspect, as it utilizes this amazing technique to provide the skin access to vital stem cell growth factors that work to stimulate the growth and development of connective tissue. Like with any other PRP injections treatment, blood is taken from the patient, and then spun around in a centrifuge in an effort to prepare it for the actual administration of the PRP injections. Like other procedures such as microneedling, this anti-aging facial treatment makes use of the body’s own natural healing mechanisms, and ensures that the skin tissue is able to restore and regenerate itself, helping to alleviate the appearance of unwanted blemishes, scarring, wrinkles and other unwanted skin issues.
PRP + Dermal Fillers
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. Like with a procedure such as microneedling, we are treating certain unwanted surface blemishes and scarring using the body’s own naturally restorative nature, and the skin’s ability to heal itself. once the PRP injections are fully prepared, they are then combined with some type of an injectable dermal filler, generally a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler such as Juvéderm and Restylane. The reason why we prefer the use of a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler is because HA is a naturally occurring compound found within the skin’s tissue, and can therefore mesh well with the body’s own tissue and helps to bring in much-needed moisture and hydration from the surrounding areas, while simultaneously being able to stimulate the production of collagen. This collagen can in turn help to restore the damaged skin, and help to restore much-needed connective tissue that makes up the backbone of healthy, smooth, soft, supple skin tissue. While we use the blood plasma to accomplish this similar to microneedling, the use of conventional PRP injections allows the skin tissue to gain access to vital stem cell growth factors and skin proteins found within platelets that offer our tissue an amazing healing effect. This is why PRP injections are often given to athletes suffering from ligament and connective tissue damage, both after surgery and even in some less severe cases, in place of surgery.
