4 Vital Facts to Know Before Your Vampire Facelift
In the world of aesthetic enhancement, we have seen a rise in popularity over the past decade, that we haven’t seen at any other time in history. Itbecame somewhat of a frenzy, with everyone in the medical space, and even those with the smallest semblance of medical training now offering patients the opportunity to get fillers, an anti-aging facial, microneedling and types of other aesthetic enhancement procedures done. The money available in the industry is just insane, and its too much for many of these providers to pass up – especially when the demand from patients is equally as high. However, while this might not be the best news we have heard, what this boom in aesthetic enhancement has done is to spur a rise in technologically advanced procedures and new and innovative techniques, like for instance, the vampire facelift. A revolutionary new procedure, the vampire facelift, is a skin rejuvenation anti-aging facial treatment that allows patients to alleviate the effects of aging, and all other types of skin issues – with a relatively noninvasive procedure. Made popular by celebrities and social media icons like the Kardashians, the vampire facelift offers a number of amazing benefits that in many instances, patients would need to opt for far more invasive measures to have done. A variation on microneedling, the procedure utilizes a combination of different procedures put in one, that has provided results that many patients are raving about. Despite the popularity of the procedure however, many patients are still relatively uneducated on the subject, and in this article, we will be exploring a few of the most important things you should know before having it done.
· What is the Vampire Facelift?
A vampire facelift, sometimes called a platelet-rich plasma facelift, is an anti-aging facial procedure that uses the patient’s blood to potentially fight the signs of aging.A similar treatment, known as the vampire facial, garnered a lot of attention back in 2013 when Kim Kardashian posted a selfie on Instagram of her face covered in blood.After blood is drawn from your arm, the medical professional will separate the platelets from the rest of the blood using a centrifuge (a machine that spins quickly to separate fluids of different densities). The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) will be injected along with hyaluronic acid filler, like Juvéderm.
· What are Some of the Benefits of the Vampire Facelift?
The vampire facelift and the vampire facial utilize a special variation of microneedling, and while it is being done by patients across a number of age groups, it is commonly seen as an anti-aging facial treatment. The procedure is known to have many benefits and effects such as helping to reduce the appearance of unwanted wrinkles and fine lines, helping to plump up the skin effected by facial volume loss, helps to diminish facial blemishes such as those from acne scars, and it is also known to brighten dull skin and help to treat skin discolorations along the skin’s surface.
· How Does the Cost Stack Up?
When it comes to thinking about the financials of an anti-aging facial treatment like the vampire facelift there’s a lot you need to factor in. The most important thing to take into account is that the procedure combines a number of different techniques, that on their own might cost a few hundred dollars or more, each. The price of a vampire facelift varies, but it generally costs between $1,500 and $2,500. In some cases, it may cost $3,000 depending on how much filler is needed.Most people will need at least three injections to see the best results. Because vampire facelifts are a cosmetic procedure, they won’t be covered by insurance. So, its important to take this into account!
· What’s the Science Behind the Treatment Say?
While the procedure is still relatively new, and there isn’t a ton of research having been done as of yet, one important and often quoted study found that the skin’s texture showed a marked improvement as a result of PRP injections. The efficacy of a vampire facelift is because of plasma, which is yellow. Plasma is protein-rich, and it carries nutrients, protein, and hormones to the rest of the body.Plasma also contains growth factors, which can increase cell turnover, collagen production, and elastin for firmer, younger-looking skin.
