Do You Show These Three Signs of Aging?
- Skin color has become grayer because of less blood flow.
- Facial shape has collapsed as muscle and collagen decrease.
- Skin texture has become less smooth.
As a result, the person looks “worn.” “tired” or “droopy.” The lively, rosy hue seen in playing children of every skin color and in young adults fades to a dull gray.
Why the Vampire Facelift®?
With many ways to rejuvenate the face, why look for a better way? Cosmetic surgery can remove excess skin and make the person appear younger. But, a surgical face lift can be more than what’s needed for some people, especially when loss of shape without extra skin is the main problem.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers lift the skin away from the bone to restore youthful volume and shape. HA fillers alone do not correct texture and color. In addition, HA fillers in the tear troughs (area under the eyes) often end up looking bumpy, overfilled and unnatural.
Unlike most procedures, the Vampire Facelift® offers a way of * restoring shape, improving tone and texture, as well as literally rejuvenating new and younger tissue.
THREE STEPS OF THE VAMPIRE FACELIFT® PROCEDURE
- Creating a beautiful and natural shape
In the first part of the Vampire Facelift® procedure, one of our doctors uses a HA filler (like Restylane® or Juvéderm®) in a very specific wayto sculpt a younger appearing face while still keeping the shape natural. Providers of the Vampire Facelift® procedure take into account the mathematics of beauty as defined by much research to avoid creating an unnatural shape. These ideas about the HA fillers are not commonly known even among the best of cosmetic surgeons and constitute part of the intellectual property protected by the trademarked name (Vampire Facelift®).After creating a younger and natural shape, the doctor harvests growth factors from the woman’s own blood (hence, the name Vampire) growth factors that her body would normally use to heal damaged tissue.
- Isolating and activating the magic from your blood.
First, the doctor draws about 2 teaspoons of blood. Using a centrifuge, she isolates platelets from that blood(platelet rich plasma, or PRP), all within about 15 minutes in the office.The platelets are then “activated” to release at least eight growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue. These growth factors work like magic to cause increased collagen and new blood flow. To rejuvenate new skin, these growth factors must be put back into your face.
- Injecting the magic into your face.
Using numbing cream and a very small needle (for almost no pain), the doctor injects the woman’s own growth factors back into her face in a particular way. 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 is generated.
The result: younger appearing skin!
The effects of the procedure *improve for two to three months and last for at least one to two years!
The Vampire Facelift® procedure is not for everyone. Some would do better with surgery, laser therapy, Botox®, or simply PRP or an HA filler used alone and if we are not confident you will see results we will not perform an unnecessary procedure.
