What is a Vampire FaceLift?
With many ways to rejuvenate the face, why look for a better way? Unlike most procedures, the Vampire FaceLift™ offers a way of restoring shape, and improving tone and texture, as well as literally rejuvenating new and younger tissue. In the first part of the Vampire FaceLift procedure, the we use an hyaluronic acid filler (like Restylane or Juvederm) in a very specific way to sculpt a younger appearing face while still keeping the shape natural.
What happens during the procedure?
First, the physician draws about 2 teaspoons of blood. Then, using a centrifuge, the physician isolates platelets from that blood (PRP). Then we “activate” those platelets to cause the release from the platelets of at least 8 growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue. These growth factors work like magic to cause increased collagen & new blood flow. To rejuvenate new skin, these growth factors must be put back into your face. Using numbing cream and a very small needle (for almost no pain), we inject the patient’s own growth factors back into their face. These growth factors then activate multi-potent stem cells already in the skin.
Our physicians have undergone special training with Dr. Runels and also offer other PRP injection treatments. These include The Priapus Shot®, The O-Shot®, The Vampire Facial® and The Vampire BreastLift®.
