The “Vampire Facelift” is a procedure to help rejuvenate the face by restoring shape, improving tone and texture and stimulating new and younger tissue growth. The procedure is a unique and specified method that uses the patient’s own blood-derived growth factors. This is a revolutionary alternative to cosmetic surgery, which can be fairly problematic for the skin and aesthetic appearance. A surgical facelift is often too intense of a procedure for some, and using only facial fillers distorts the natural structure of the skin and tissue. Use of independent fillers can also cause problems near the eye and can chase wrinkles, or create shapes that look foreign and unsuitable to a patient’s face. However, the Vampire Facelift offers the benefits of these procedures and remains a predominantly natural solution to achieving aesthetic wellness. Most patients have great results after just a few treatments with Dr Nyree Abdool.
How does the
Vampire Facelift work?
A vampire facial, also known as Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy (PRP), uses your own blood to help promote the healthy activity of your skin cells. Take it this way: recycling the blood initiates a healing response that repairs damaged blood vessels and cells.
The process starts with an initial blood draw performed by a doctor. Natural platelets will be extracted using an advanced microneedling device. Your blood is then run through a centrifuge to isolate the plasma which contains platelets together with growth factors.
This is then re-injected into your face, releasing proteins for growth once in contact with the body’s tissues. It stimulates collagen production for tighter pores, rejuvenated skin, and lightened acne scars. If you live in Tarpon Springs and thinking about Vampire Facelift, Dr Nyree Abdool is here for you.
Best of all, it won’t take days of recovery, surgery, or laser resurfacing to see actual results! Simply allow the procedure to work its magic and trust us, your skin will be as plump and radiant as it can be.
The first step is the application of a miniscule amount of injectable hyaluronic acid dermal filler (like Restylane or Juvederm). This adds youthful volume to the face, and structures it for the platelet rich plasma injection.
Blood is drawn from the patient and placed into a centrifuge where it is spun at an incredibly high speed. The centrifuge is able to separate the blood cells from the platelet rich plasma (PRP) which contains natural growth factors. The PRP is then injected into facial tissue so that it can stimulate the growth of new, healthier and younger tissue (stem cells, collagen and blood vessels).
The Vampire Facelift can treat:
- Lines at the corner of the mouth
- Dark circles under the eyes
- Lip volume
- Wrinkles on the forehead
- Smile lines
- Cheek volume
- Skin tone and texture
The whole procedure takes about 30-40 minutes and there is little pain. The areas of injection are numbed with an anesthetic cream, and a very thin needle is used for injections.
Results can be immediate, and continue to improve over weeks to months. However, as, the growth of new tissue becomes more apparent. The effects of the Vampire Facelift last approximately 8-12 months, but some women have felt its effects for up to 2 years.
