Creating Platelet-Rich Plasma Isolating & Injecting the Magic in Your Blood. Within a matter of minutes, our practitioner can create autologous, which means from you to you, PRP and activate your stem cells for the Vampire FaceLift® Procedure™.
First, the physician draws about 2 teaspoons of blood. Then, using a centrifuge, she isolates platelets from that blood (platelet-rich plasma or PRP). All within about 10 minutes here in the office, she uses the centrifuge to isolate platelets…then she “activates” those platelets to cause the release of at least 8 growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue.
These growth factors when injected back into the body (the face) in a particular way will activate multipotent stem cells already in the skin (tricking them into “thinking” there’s been an injury). These multipotent stem cells cells then grow new collagen, new blood vessels, and new fatty tissue trying to “repair” the skin that was never injured. The result… younger- appearing skin! The effects of the procedure improve for 2 to 3 months and last 9 months to 2 years!
Vampire FaceLift® Procedure™ Creating The Shape
The first part of the Vampire FaceLift® Procedure™ utilizing HA fillers to begin sculpting specific areas of the face.
The glycosaminoglycans (what an HA filler replaces) act like a sponge that holds water in the face providing a basic shape. This initial injection of HA is the precursor to the ultimate desired form.
Next comes the polishing and refining step of the sculpting process which ultimately contributes to the appearance of a younger version of you.
Activating 8 Growth Factors
Platelet-rich plasma is similar to HA fillers because it can be injected to sculpt the face. But, here’s the best part: not only does the PRP cause an increase in the volume, PRP contains at least 8 growth factors that will over a long period of time, continually work like a rejuvenating agent.
By activating these growth factors, all 3 parts of the aging process improve:
