Have you ever admired the ageless beauty of vampires on the silver screen? The Vampire Facelift®, sometimes referred to as a platelet-rich plasma facelift, is an innovative cosmetic procedure that utilizes the patient’s own blood to effectively reverse the signs of aging for both men and women. Unlike the Vampire Facial®, which relies on facial micro needling, this treatment incorporates hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers for a more dramatic lift.
The Trio of Aging Symptoms a Vampire Facelift® Addresses
Dull skin tone. With age, blood flow to the face tends to reduce, leaving skin grayish or dull in tone. The Vampire Facelift® stimulates natural processes in the facial skin, returning a healthy, youthful glow.
Imperfect texture. Fine lines and wrinkles, worn areas of the facial skin, and even deep acne scars may be able to be smoothed away by the rejuvenating and plumping effects of a Vampire Facelift® in Hinsdale.
Droopy or collapsed appearance. The strategic placement of injections during a Vampire Facelift® help lift the skin on the face and return volume to key areas.
The Science Behind the Vampire Facelift®
Sometimes referred to as ‘liquid gold,’ the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) extracted from the patient’s blood is what makes the Vampire Facial® and Vampire Facelift® so special. This material, natural to the patient’s own body, contains revitalizing growth factors that help encourage cell turnover as well as collagen and elastin production. These three processes are the key to skin that appears naturally beautiful and healthy. The addition of HA fillers in this non-surgical procedure delivers a dramatically lifted effect on the patient’s appearance.
The Vampire Facelift® Process
Dr. Morgan will begin by cleaning your skin and applying a topical numbing cream. Approximately 2 teaspoons of blood will then be drawn from your arm, which we will transfer to the in-office centrifuge for processing. Depending on the patient, the HA injections will be completed at before, after, or concurrently with the PRP treatment, in order to most effectively target the desired areas on the face.
After Your Appointment
Most patients will notice some skin sensitivity after undergoing a Vampire Facelift® in Hinsdale, including itching, redness, and swelling. It’s important not to scratch your face, even if it begins to peel or flake. We recommend limiting exercise and exposure to the sun for at least one week after your procedure.
