Vampire facelift benefits
“Beauty is pain.” While some may agree with those words, others would argue that injecting your own blood back into your face in the name of beauty may be taking the saying a bit too far. How would it feel to inject your own blood into your face to fight aging?
Vampire facelift or platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy has become a popular procedure in the beauty industry.
What is a Vampire Facelift?
The PRP or Vampire Facelift procedure involves taking the blood from a patient, processing it in a centrifuge to extract the plasma – which contains platelets and growth factors – and then re-injecting it into the face along with hyaluronic acid filler, like Juvederm. The plasma therapy technique is not new and has long been used in orthopedics, dentistry, and reconstructive surgery, and now we can use the advantages of this technique in cosmetology.
The Vampire facelift procedure
The plasma therapy procedure does not take much time and lasts about 20-30 minutes. Getting the elixir of youth (PRP) consists of several stages: taking blood from a vein, centrifuging the obtained blood samples, and separating the necessary platelet-rich plasma. After that, the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) will be injected along with a hyaluronic acid filler.
Plasma therapy is ideal for people who want to improve the condition and color of their skin. PRP is suitable for all skin types, the procedure helps to eliminate wrinkles, revitalize the skin, improve the condition of the skin after acne, and also speed up the recovery processes after peeling. The procedure is preferred for patients who choose natural methods of rejuvenation. Most often, plasma-lifting is used in areas subject to solar radiation and premature aging – cheeks, the middle third of the face, zygomatic zone, and sagging skin of the neck, back, arms, and décolleté.
It is recommended to carry out a cycle of 3 procedures with an interval of 4-8 weeks. Noticeable results in the form of an improvement in the structure of the skin should be expected during the first month, then there is an increase in the formation of new collagen by the third month. The condition of the skin continuously improves for about 12 months and the results last for 1.5-2 years.
What are the benefits of a vampire facelift?
As we age, the speed of collagen production in the body begins to reduce. This reduction becomes even more, especially after the age of 25. If nothing is done to increase the speed of collagen production, it will be significantly reduced for the rest of your life. In addition to production speed, collagen quality is also very important. The decrease in the quality of collagen is markedly reflected in the skin.
This results in a lifeless and unhealthy look. Many facial problems, from fine lines to moderate to deep wrinkles, can be addressed with Vampire Treatment. If deep wrinkles in your skin are bothering you or you have serious skin problems, you can achieve brighter and more vibrant skin by boosting collagen production with a vampire facelift application. In some cases, collagen production is stimulated by skin trauma.
Vampire treatment uses small needles and microinjections to produce collagen in the skin with both mechanical and PRP effects. With this method, your body starts producing younger, healthier, and stronger collagen. The growth of quality collagen resulting from this process takes several weeks.
Achieve reduced lines and wrinkles
People with deep facial wrinkles are more likely to opt for a vampire treatment. Since this method of treatment is applied by natural methods, it has been in great demand by many people in recent years. These most obvious signs of aging are treated with PRP-containing surgery, which achieves cellular regeneration.
Thanks to the vampire facial, aged skin cells are renewed. These newly formed skin cells support the formation of collagen and elastin. In response to microinjections made during this procedure, the skin of the face naturally tightens. In this way, fine lines and wrinkles are largely eliminated. In some cases, professionals use fillers to add volume to saggy areas of the face.
Skin tightening with a vampire facelift
The most important thing for younger and firmer skin is the production of high-quality collagen. Although fine lines and wrinkles are not always visible, skin becomes thinner with age, and the thinning can occur in some areas of the skin, such as the lips and cheeks.
Thanks to the high-quality collagen obtained by this method, the skin acquires an elastic and vibrant appearance.
Skin hydration is very important at any age
The stronger and thicker the skin structure, the deeper layers of the skin are protected from irritants. To create a strong skin barrier, it is necessary to maintain skin moisture. This procedure helps to close the pores in the skin resulting in skin moisture. This method also preserves the moisture of the skin.
Preparing for the treatment
No major preparation is required before the Vampire facelift procedure. Your doctor will give you the necessary instructions before applying the vampire facelift.
Are there any side effects of the Vampire Facelift?
Since platelet-rich plasma is obtained from the patient’s own blood, its use does not cause rejection, infections, or any allergic reactions. The skin may appear slightly tanned during the first 2 days and with little to no discomfort. Slight swelling may last for 3-7 days, and redness and bruising disappear within 1-3 days.
After the treatment, it is recommended to monitor skin hydration and be sure to apply sunscreen with SPF30 or more.
