What Is A Vampire Facelift?
Also known as autologous blood therapy, platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP), or Dracula therapy, a vampire facelift is a fabulous breakthrough of aesthetic medicine, a natural, non-invasive approach to facial rejuvenation, resulting in a younger appearance, using only the patient’s blood.
Nowadays, our lifestyle, the stress, cold temperatures, pollution – all these factors can leave traces on our skin, and especially on our face. With aging, collagen synthesis also decreases and wrinkles appear or become more pronounced, because the skin structure changes and it progressively loses its elasticity. Today more than ever, people seem very preoccupied to reduce the aging effects, and a vampire facelift is considered a state-of-the-art therapy.
We are talking about a revolutionary treatment that relies on bio regeneration, that is, on the body’s own resources. Platelet-rich plasma injections have a strong rejuvenating effect by stimulating collagen production and increasing blood flow to the skin. The result is a younger, firmer, brighter skin.
Vampire facial Denver Doctors extract a small amount of the patient’s blood and apply it to specific areas of the face, by micro needling with meso pen (derma pen).
Vampire therapy reduces the appearance of wrinkles and renders the firmness and natural shine of the complexion. Unlike other aesthetic procedures, it offers a safe way of re-stretching the skin and improving tone and texture by naturally rejuvenating existing tissues. PRP therapy has incredible results for both women and men that already manifest signs of aging: dry and itching skin (due to reduced blood flow, especially in the case of smokers), loss of firmness (because of the lack of collagen) tired appearance, wrinkles around the eyes, the corners of the mouth etc.
How does PRP work?
First, the esthetician will collect about 20 ml of the patient’s blood and store it into a special, biotech sterile tube. Then, using a centrifuge, the doctor will isolate the platelets in the blood; this procedure lasts no longer than 10-15 minutes.
These platelets are then activated to release from them at least 8 growth factors that would naturally be used by your body to heal damaged tissue. These growth factors act like magic and allow more collagen production and blood flow in the treated area, so they are introduced into the skin immediately after processing.
All these stages are performed quickly, in front of the patient, so that he/ she knows what happens every step of the procedure.
After a thorough cleaning and disinfecting the area to be treated, the doctor applies an anesthetic cream that will make the entire procedure virtually painless. By micro needling, the doctor will inject the growth factors into the patient`s skin, which will then activate the existing stem cells, by sending them a message similar with the one they receive in the case of a lesion. As such, the cells will start generating new, young tissue and activate collagen production at the cellular level. The results are a younger, fresher and brighter face, which brings a very high degree of satisfaction among patients who choose this therapy.
