The Vampire Facelift is an in-office procedure. This procedure involves extracting blood from your arm and then spinning the blood sample in a centrifuge to separate the platelets. It has a greater concentration of growth factors than whole blood.The separated blood cells are then re-injected into the skin with a very fine needle, and only injected into the areas that need to be filled out or restored. These injections are performed in conjunction with fat injections or with HA fillers to create a smooth, rounder and plumper appearance.
The procedure is a near painless series of injections into strategic areas of the face to reduce wrinkles, add youthful volume, and improve the quality of your skin.
Platelet-rich plasma contains at least eight of the body’s own concentrated growth factors to rejuvenate the face in several ways:
1. Increases the formation of new blood vessels (also called “neovascularization”) and increases the blood flow to the skin, resulting in healthier, better and quality skin.
2. Increases new cell formation for skin renewal.
3. Spurs the production of new collagen, the major component of facial skin that diminishes in facial aging.
4.Activates the multi-potent stem cells already in the skin by tricking it into thinking there is an injury, resulting in the use of a combination of growth factors and stem cells to generate new fatty tissue. The new fatty tissue repairs skin that was never injured in the first place, resulting in the generation of new, younger-skin.
Atleast 3-5 sessions are required for good result. There should be a gap of 1 month between sessions.
PRP needs 30-45 minutes per session
