Questions For The Experts:
Q: What is the Vampire Face Lift®?
A: This is a procedure where our doctor draws a similar amount of blood required for a basic lab test. He then centrifuges the blood to separate the platelets from the other blood components. The platelet-rich plasma is then activated to release at least 8 essential growth factors and reinserted back into the skin together with a hyaluronic acid filler (i.e. Restylane, Juvederm).
Q: How will the Vampire Face Lift® benefit me?
A: By reintroducing a concentration of growth factors back into your skin, the skin begins to repair and strengthen. The combination of a hyaluronic acid will add volume to the skin and promote elastin and collagen production. The results are natural, glowing, and youthful-looking skin.
Q: Is the Vampire Face Lift® painful?
A: To reduce discomfort, topical anesthetic is placed before starting the procedure. The hyaluronic acid filler, which is mixed with anesthetic, is then placed first followed by plasma-rich protein (PRP) which makes the procedure much more comfortable
Q: Am I going to see results immediately?
A: Depending on the condition of your skin, some results will be immediate and some results will be gradual and will vary from person to person based on health, age and genetic makeup.
Q: Can the plasma-rich protein (PRP) be used by itself?
A: Yes, your plasma can be reinserted without the use of hyaluronic acid fillers when only skin tone and texture improvement are needed. However, the most benefit is achieved with the combination of the two.
Q: Can the plasma-rich protein (PRP) be used in other area of the body?
A: Yes, because this regenerative technology deploys aspects of your own biochemistry, it can be used anywhere on the body to improve skin texture and tone. It also helps improve scars by repairing the damaged tissue.
