Vampire FaceLift® Procedure™ There are two parts, the first part utilizes dermal fillers to begin sculpting specific areas of the face. These fillers act like a sponge that hold water in the face providing a basic shape. This initial injection of filler is the precursor to the ultimate desired form. The second is the polishing and refining step, the utilization of your body’s own natural healing process. A sample of your blood is obtained with a simple blood draw. Using a centrifuge, the growth factors in platelet rich plasma (PRP) are extracted from that blood sample and injected into specific areas of the face. This step of the sculpting process ultimately contributes to the appearance of a younger version of you. Stefanie has personally trained with the physician who invented and trademarked the Vampire FaceLift® Procedure™, Dr. Charles Runels.
Benefits of A Vampire FaceLift® Procedure™ • With hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, the face is truly lifted away from the bone and youthful volume can be restored to a beautiful shape. • The skin color becomes a “younger” color because of new blood vessel formation. • New collagen formations in the dermis lifts the face back to a more youthful shape. • Because the growth factors are working to build a new dermis, the epidermis (the outer most layers of your skin) appears smoother. • Lessens the appearance of fine lines around the eyes, lips, neck and décolletage. • Improves your body’s innate natural healing power and tissue reorganization potential, improving laxity, acne scars, and wrinkles of the face, neck and décolletage
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a natural approach to reducing fine lines and adding volume back to the face. Through a remarkable advanced process, we are able to extract your body's own healing cells and enrich them into a substance called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP can be injected by itself or with fillers into lines, wrinkles, and facial hollows.
Another beneficial way to use PRP is with the Rejuvapen to stimulate the production of new collagen and regenerate the skin from within. When topically applied to the face after a Collagen Induction Therapy session, your own PRP is effectively absorbed into the skin. From there, the growth factors in the platelets begin to regenerate new skin cells. New fatty tissue to add volume and shape to the face is also created, and blood flow is improved to restore the skin's natural glow.
What is PRP PRP is a natural product created from your own body. A small amount of blood is drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube that is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. Red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and plasma (the clear fluid). This plasma now contains a higher than normal number of platelets and is called platelet rich plasma, or PRP.
Why Platelets Rejuvenate Skin Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissues to heal and grow new cells. PRP, injected into specific areas of the skin, act as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerate tissue, and thus acts to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles and creates smoother skin texture and tone.
Results The goal of PRP skin rejuvenation therapy is to improve skin tone and texture, tighten skin, soften lines, wrinkles, and fill in facial hollows. PRP is a regenerative process. Results begin to show 3-4 weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve and emerge with time. To achieve optimal results, 3 treatment sessions are generally recommended spaced 1-2 months apart.
PRP therapy can be combined with Laser Procedures, Botox, Dermal Fillers, Dermaplaning, Chemical Peels, and Collagen Induction Therapy to best target a patient's unique issues and thus achieve the final goal of younger looking skin!
