How It Works
Doctors have been using platelet-rich plasma derived from human blood to accelerate the body’s healing process for many years. Now, that same technology is available from industry-leading dermatologists to give your skin a more youthful, glowing appearance!
A Vampire Facelift combines hyaluronic acid filler (like Juvéderm or Restylane) and platelet-rich plasma injections to plump skin, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and restore youthful volume to loose, sagging skin on the face and neck.
Over time, the platelet-rich plasma releases active growth factors to deliver long-lasting, beautiful face contouring results. The Vampire Facelift is a non-surgical, non-invasive solution that provides amazingly beautiful results!
The Vampire Facelift Can Treat The Following Concerns:
Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Loose, Sagging Skin
Rough, Uneven Texture
The term “vampire” is a misnomer. No, you won’t leave the office looking like the undead! On the contrary, PRP treatments will leave you with a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance – all by using the power of your own blood. It only takes 2 tiny teaspoons!
“Once we’ve collected your blood specimen, we can separate the strong cells from the weak cells… we then take that strong PRP, and we can utilize it for all our different treatments like the O-Shot, the P-Shot, our Vampire Facial, our Vampire Facelift, and our Vampire Breast Lift.”
– Dr. Rakesh Nanda, MD
Why Does PRP Treatment Work?
Platelet-Rich Plasma is created by each individual’s body. PRP Treatment begins by drawing blood from an individual and separating the platelets. This is done by placing the blood into a small sterile tube and spun to induce separation. The centrifugal force of the spinning separates the red and white blood cells from the platelets and plasma. This leaves a plasma rich in platelets, or PRP.
The reason this PRP is so effective is the role platelets play in the human body. Platelets are the cells in the body that help heal tissues and generate new cells. Injecting PRP into the skin boosts collagen growth and encourages tissue regeneration in that area of the skin. This naturally smoothens and tightens that area. This ultimately relaxes the skin and creates a soft, smooth texture and tone.
Proven and Safe
PRP Treatment is not a new thing. PRP has been used in various fields of medicine including orthopedic medicine, dentistry, and reconstructive surgery. These benefits can now be applied to dermatology, skin wound healing, and cosmetic facial rejuvenation.
Studies dating back as far as 30 years show the benefits of PRP on collagen regrowth. More recent studies show that PRP can actually help with sun damaged and aging skin as well.
PRP Treatment is proving to be safer and more effective than previous treatments. Hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane and Juvederm are common treatments used. They work by filling in lines and skin folds with a solid material. This filler is supposed to soften deeper lines around the mouth and plump lips. However, the longevity of this is only 6-18 months. Therefore, an individual needs repeated treatments.
An Improved System
PRP uses components already within the human body to stimulate collagen regrowth and tissue regeneration. PRP aims to rejuvenate the entire face, whereas hyaluronic acid fillers only target individual wrinkles. PRP does not just target one individual aspect of facial revitalization. The variety of things PRP targets includes volumization of the face, plumpness of cheeks, and softness of the eyes. PRP also aims to improve skin tone, tightness, and texture. PRP gets into the areas that hyaluronic acid cannot.
PRP not only does more than hyaluronic acid fillers, it can also work in conjunction with them. Restylane or Juvederm can be used to supplement PRP. Working together, they can provide the most youthful facial appearance. Restylane and Juvederm target specific lines and folds, while PRP works to provide an overall improvement to volume, fullness, and skin tone. PRP can be used with a variety of other treatments: laser treatments, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, Restylane, Juvederm, BOTOX Cosmetic, and/or Dysport. Working with other treatments, PRP can provide the best outcome for each individual and better achieve the final objective of younger, healthier looking skin.
What is PRP Treatment Like?
PRP Treatment in Columbus, Dayton, Ohio includes the initial blood draw. The blood is then put into the centrifuge to separate platelets and plasma. The individual’s skin must be cleaned and prepared for treatment while the PRP is being prepared. Injections of the PRP are then done, taking just a few moments and bringing about only mild discomfort. The procedure takes about 15 minutes and is relatively painless. There is no extensive recovery time involved. There is no post-procedure care or interference with the daily routine. Individuals may experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising; however, that should only last up to 3 days. There is a minuscule chance of negative side effects since PRP is made from the human body and cells.
The overall objective of PRP is to provide better skin tone and texture, tighten the skin, smooth lines, and soften pores. Individuals can see results as soon as 3-4 weeks after their treatment. These results will also continue to improve with time. For optimal results, it is recommended that individuals receive three treatments, with one to two months between each treatment. After the initial treatments, it is also recommended that individuals receive maintenance treatments over time.
What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma?
What Is Plasma?
Plasma is the clear, light yellow liquid “serum” part of blood that suspends and carries red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets throughout the body.
What Are Platelets?
Platelets are tiny cells in the human body that are responsible for forming blood clots, and they also contain growth factors that stimulate stem cells to generate new tissue.
What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma?
Platelet-Rich Plasma is what remains after a doctor separates plasma from other blood components using a centrifuge. The concentrated liquid contains 5-10x more platelets than untreated blood. When applied topically or injected into the skin, platelet-rich plasma works to improve skin tone, tightness, and texture.
Results That Speak For Themselves
“I had been noticing volume loss in my face for a few years and I decided a Vampire Facelift combined with fillers would be the best choice. What a great decision! The results are awesome! I had no bruising the next morning and I saw a softer version of myself when I looked in the mirror. The PRP will enhance the collagen production in my face which will help maintain this softer, youthful look.” – Real Self Review
Frequently Asked Questions
How is PRP used in the medical industry?
Doctors have been using platelet-rich plasma to naturally accelerate the healing of injured skin, tendons, muscles, and joints for many years. According to the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, “platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints.” By studying the way PRP injections accelerate healing and promote new tissue growth, many cosmetic doctors became interested in how to adapt PRP injections for the aesthetics industry.
Are PRP treatments safe?
PRP treatments are an in-office, non-surgical, and non-invasive procedure. Unlike other injections, PRP contains no manufactured ingredients and is naturally produced by your own body. Because we use your own blood and only sterile, FDA-approved methods of administration, there is no risk for allergic reactions or infections with PRP treatments. While your blood is being separated in the centrifuge, we will clean and prep your face for treatment to eliminate any chance of infection.
Who can get a PRP treatment?
This treatment can help many individuals who have noticed a variety of issues with their skin. Anyone with fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, enlarged pores, or loss of volume can benefit from a Vampire Facelift. If you suffer from breast discoloration, rippling, or loss of nipple sensation, a Vampire Breast Lift can help! PRP treatments are ideal for patients with all skin types, tones, and textures.
Do PRP treatments hurt?
Prior to the quick and easy procedure, numbing cream is placed on the patient’s face and/or neck in preparation for the injections. Most patients report feeling little to no pain during the procedure, and downtime is usually minimal. The Vampire Facelift procedure usually takes about 15 minutes and is relatively painless. Patients may experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising; however, any negative side effects should resolve within three days.
How soon do you see benefits?
Benefits such as improved skin radiance, texture and tone, and youthful contouring are seen immediately and will continue to improve as the PRP works to boost collagen production, increase cell turnover, and enhance tissue regeneration. Most patients report optimal results 12 weeks after treatment. Since the effects of hyaluronic acid only last 6-18 months, you will need multiple Vampire Facelift treatments to maintain your youthful results.
Can the Vampire Facelift be done in conjunction with other treatments?
