VAMPIRE FACELIFT® AND PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP)
What is The Vampire Facelift®?
Now becoming very popular in McLean, VA, the Vampire Facelift is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that treats wrinkles and volume loss and rejuvenates the face by improving skin tone and texture. It involves the injection of a patient’s own blood-derived growth factors-Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) into various parts of the face. PRP is platelets enriched blood plasma that contains high levels of growth factors. When injected into the face, PRP acts in the same fashion as dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm. The Vampire Facelift can be combined with a volumizing dermal filler of a hyaluronic acid, while PRP tells your facial cells to grow new, plumper, younger looking skin. This will rejuvenate your face in a natural, subtle and distinctive way.
How is The Vampire Facelift Performed?
Just like having your blood drawn at a doctors office, your blood is drawn into a tube and the necessary platelet rich plasma is isolated and activated to separate from other blood components. The PRP filler takes on a gel like consistency that is then injected to perform the Vampire Facelift. The procedure is painless and quick and can be done in less than an hour at your plastic surgeon’s office. A topical anesthetic can be applied to ensure a pleasant experience.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Vampire Facelift?
You are a candidate for a Vampire Facelift if you are looking for longer lasting facial results than those achieved with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers alone such as Restylane and Juvederm. The results achieved are ideal for wrinkle reduction, skin improvement and volume.
What are the Side Effects of a Vampire Facelift?
The Vampire Facelift requires no downtime and has little or no side effects. Temporary redness and swelling will occur at the injection site and typically subside in a few hours or a day or two.
