Even though the name might appear frightful, the Vampire (Ageless) Facial and facelift procedures, they are the alternative to the more invasive cosmetic surgery in achieving beautiful skin. Short duration procedures, speedy recovery, and a youthful skin outcome, is really all there is to it in this groundbreaking discovery.
Nobody can deny coveting radiant skin with smooth youthful appearance, and taking your chance with the Vampire (Ageless) procedures might just be what you need to achieving that which we all desire most. The Vampire Facelift procedure seeks to revitalize the skin by repairing all the signs of damage and slowing the aging process. Factors such as aging, sun damage, and smoking are all catalysts to unwanted signs of damage on your skin. Such destructive elements tamper with the normal consistency and healthy appearance of the skin by using Fillers to revitalize the skin, the Vampire Facelift procedure eradicates all unwanted manifestations found on the skin by achieving a much smoother appearance by raising the levels of hydration, elastin, and collagen.
Steps Taken in the Vampire Facelift Procedure
After the hydra facial is done, a topical lidocaine and tetracaine solution is applied on the skin thirty minutes before the dermal needing. This is done to make the recipient as comfortable as possible. The one-one and half hour procedure entails:
- Microdermabrasion- the Stratum Corneum, which is the outer part of the skin layer, is removed.
- Hydrafacial is not only done to hydrate the skin but also to improve the absorption of platelets rich plasma (PRP).
- Using a MicroPen, dermal needing is done to create a temporary opening in the waterproofing of the skin.
- Dermal Filler placement is done to rejuvenate volume loss to the skin
- Platelet rich plasma is finally placed topically or administered through intradermal injection.
How Does The Vampire Facelift Procedure Work?
Using blood-derived growth factors, the procedure is able to strengthen and repair your skin. These growth factors are essential as the building blocks of a radiant skin by shaping, reviving, repairing and strengthening the skin. In obtaining these growth factors, first, a certain amount of blood is drawn as it is done for a standard lab test. The blood drawn is then put in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from other blood components. Finally, the platelet rich plasma is activated to release at least eight essential growth factors.
To ensure the comfort of patients, anesthesia adjuvant therapies can be administered either through injection of each sensory nerve of the face or orally with an Avitan pill, which resembles Valium, a narcotic analgesic hydrocodone to relax the patient. Very few case, nonetheless, require pain medication to counter discomfort after the procedure.
What to Anticipate After the Vampire Facelift Procedure
- Fine and coarse facial lines
- Diminishing skin elasticity
- Thinning of the dermis
- Improving the appearance of surgical scars and acne scarring
Dr. Marguerite Bernett also recommends harvesting your fat and moving it to areas with volume loss, instead of using fillers, for a permanent volume improvement. The procedure is also quite essential for improvement of skin clarity, tone, and texture.
Who Needs the Vampire Facelift Procedure?
Unwanted manifestations might reveal themselves because of sun damage, smoking, and age. Once the consistency and appearance of your skin is altered, it no longer has the radiance and smooth feel. Also, the aging process attributes to loss of beauty through loss of volume, wrinkling, droopy and a sallow skin tone. Volume loss, which might arise from damage by the sun and the aging process, can be fixed by the Vampire Facelift procedure.
When exposed to harsh sun rays, fillers underneath the skin layer only increase the cells’ ability to bind with water and as a result, there are lower levels of collagen and elastin which cause deep wrinkles with a loss of volume and structure. All this can be fixed with the Vampire Facelift procedure.
Comparing the Vampire Facelift Procedure to other Procedures
Although quite similar to the dermal filler treatment, the Vampire Facelift procedure is less minimally invasive. The process begins with drawing a vial of blood from the patient. The blood is then put in a centrifuge and spun very rapidly to separate the platelets from the other blood components. After the platelets are activated by calcium, your very own platelet rich plasma (PRP) is generated to release growth factors to your skin.
Benefits of the Vampire Facelift Procedure
The Vampire FaceLift is similar to the procedure of administering a dermal filler treatment, which is a minimally invasive procedure. The procedure begins by drawing from the patient a
vial of blood. The blood is placed in a centrifuge and spun at a very rapid rate to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood. The platelets are then actuated by
Calcium, generating your very own Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP).
What are the benefits of the Vampire FaceLift?
The specific patented polymer that is used to activate the platelets and the growth factors is indeed the finest in the market. Of course, this is to ensure only the best results are revealed by your skin after the Vampire Facelift is done. After combining either your fat and stem cells or dermal fillers such as Juvederm with plasma-rich platelets (PRP), the results are simply outstanding. other than the increase in the volume of your skin, the plasma rich proteins are activated with at least eight growth factors. These growth factors, as mentioned earlier, are building blocks that, over a period of time, will continue to revitalize your skin making it more radiant.
The growth factors bring about:
- An improved color of the skin which makes it more youthful. This is as a result of new blood vessels being formed.
- The face is lifted back to a more vigorous shape by new collagen that is created in the dermis.
- A new dermis is formed resulting in the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin) to appear silkier.
