Are you looking for an age defying facelift that is a cheaper alternative to cosmetic surgery? The Vampire Facelift has been received a huge amount of press coverage after Kim Kardashian and Anna Friel came out as fans of its skin rejuvenating results.
So what exactly is this celebrity treatment that everyone is raving about?
It’s scientific name is Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (PRP), and it works by injecting a mixture of natural fillers and plasma from the patient’s own blood into specific areas of the patient’s face. It has been shown to smooth out lines and wrinkles in your face, using only natural products from your own body.
Here are the key tips you need to know about the treatment that’s taking the celebrity world by storm.
What is a Vampire Facelift?
The Vampire Facelift consists of using two teaspoons of the patient’s own blood which is essentially injected back into the face to create a smoother, wrinkle free and radiant look. The reason why the patient’s own blood is used is because it contains two main ingredients in rejuvenating the skin. These are the blood platelets that act as healing agents when repairing damaged skin and tissue, and fibrin, which is a protein that helps in blood clotting.
What Happens During the Procedure?
After the blood has been extracted, it is placed into a centrifuge, where it spins rapidly and separates the platelets from the red blood cells. This is then combined with the fibrin and then injected into the patient’s skin, where the newly added proteins stimulate tissue repair and collagen which plumps up the skin. The injections are with extremely small needles and are almost completely painless. The treatment only takes a maximum time of an hour.
Many of our clients have said they look years younger post treatment and that was a significant reduction of lines and wrinkles and the tone and texture of the skin is much more radiant.
After a Vampire Facelift
The PRP treatment produces immediate results but redness is normal for the next 24 hours after the procedure. The vampire facelift is a long-lasting beauty treatment that lasts around 15 months.
