As we age, we notice the effects on our faces – often before we notice any other signs. Our facial skin naturally loses elasticity, which can result in wrinkles, loss of volume, and sagging. If you’re interested in rejuvenating your youthful appearance without undergoing traditional facelift surgery, a PRP non-surgical facelift (vampire) can be a great option.
The PRP in PRP non-surgical facelift stands for platelet-rich plasma, and the medical procedure employs your own blood – thus the vampire reference – to plump up your facial skin and improve your youthful appearance. The procedure helps you grow new tissue that smooths your skin’s texture and facilitates the growth of new blood vessels to provide you with that beautiful, healthy glow that you know and love.
An experienced anti-aging specialist will use a small sample of your blood and centrifuge it immediately to extract the plasma that’s concentrated in your platelets. This enriched plasma will then be injected into those areas of your face requiring treatment via mesotherapy. The PRP session lasts only about an hour. In fact, other than the name, there’s really nothing spooky about it.
To begin, your board-certified anti-aging physician will use a dermal filler like Restylane or Juvéderm to sculpt more youthful contours in your face. After this step is accomplished, your physician will draw about two teaspoons of your blood and isolate the platelet-rich plasma using an office centrifuge. Next, the platelets will be activated in order to instigate the release of several growth factors that are normally reserved for healing damaged tissue. Once injected, these growth factors will go to work, increasing your face’s collagen and blood flow.
Before your doctor injects you with your plasma, he or she will use a numbing cream on the affected areas and will use a tiny needle to make the injections. This results in little to no procedural pain. Once injected, the following will occur:
The positive effects you experience will continue to accrue for two to three months, and they can last from one to two years. You’re going to be thrilled with your skin’s enhanced youthfulness, and you’ll experience virtually no downtime post-surgery.
