Who are the Best Candidates for the Vampire Facelift?
The Vampire Facelift was developed for those who are looking for youthful, healthy, and rejuvenated skin without having to have surgery. It works by utilizing your body’s regenerative and healing properties. You can experience results in one day with this outpatient procedure, and enjoy results that can last for years after you’ve had the procedure done.
Are You a Good Candidate for the Vampire Facelift?
You are most likely a good candidate for this procedure if you have no severe skin conditions and are in fairly good health. This procedure is only performed on certain parts of your face, since it requires a small amount of your blood.
If you require a complete facial skin resurfacing treatment, chances are the Vampire Facelift won’t be the best option for you. The best candidates for PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, injections are those with ‘crepey’ skin, an ailment where the skin wrinkles and folds due to poor underlying support and brittle surface tissue.
Some of the facial flaws that this procedure corrects include:
- Surgical and acne scars
- Skin lesions
- Dermis thinning
- Fine line and coarse wrinkles
- Substantial connective tissue strength loss leading to drooping
- Pigmentation asymmetries
It treats other ailments, but these are the most common
In addition to the above factors for candidacy for Vampire Facelift, individuals who are looking to restore color, volume, and a healthy skin glow to their face will also enjoy the benefits of this procedure. You should see almost immediate favorable results and continue to improve over an approximate 12 week time span.
Results of the Vampire Facelift can last up to two years giving you tightened and smooth skin. You will even enjoy those rosy, youthful looking cheeks due to the improved blood flow and all this beauty in under an hour.
How a Vampire Facelift Works
This procedure generates new tissue by working at the stem cell level. A small amount of your blood is drawn to start the procedure and using a unique centrifuge type device, the platelets in it are isolated carefully. Then, your platelets are activated so they can begin releasing necessary growth factors. This platelet plasma is carefully injected in your face in targeted areas along with hyaluronic acid (HA) filler like Juvederm or Restylane.
Depending on what you are looking for or what you need, it might take up to three injections to achieve your desired results. Following the injection of these platelets, you’ll begin seeing results and your special facelift will become more obvious and only get better over time. This usually starts in a few weeks.
Is the Vampire Facelift Safe?
You might be intimidated by the name of this procedure, but in actuality, it is a very effective and safe way to smooth out wrinkles and lift up your skin without many side effects. The procedure takes less than an hour to complete and you are not left with any visible scars since this lift is done by injections only.
