WHAT IS A VAMPIRE FACELIFT?
If you don’t want or are unable to have surgical cosmetic treatment for a face lift, there is a painless alternative called the Vampire Facelift. It has been given this name because the treatment involves injecting your blood platelets into your facial area, giving it a rejuvenated look and feel, with reduced fine lines and wrinkles.
You can have this procedure to treat areas around the nose, eyes and mouth, or in the back of your hands and your décolletage. It is a cheaper alternative to surgery at an affordable price. The procedure is quick and painless and you can be out of the surgery in hours.
HOW DO YOU GET MY PLATELETS?
The procedure is known as Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment and it is done by taking some of your blood and then placing it in a centrifugal machine, which separates your blood and platelet plasma.
The platelets are nature’s clotting agents the plasma creates new tissue with collagen, which then plumps up the skin and gives it that fresh young look. Once the plasma has been separated, it is then injected or using a dermal roller back into various points on your face.
WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE?
First of all your blood will be taken, it’s about the same amount as a blood test. This is put into the machine. Meanwhile your skin will be cleaned and a topical anaesthetic applied in order that the procedure is totally painless.
After around 30 minutes you will be ready to have the injections of plasma into your face. This will be done with a fine needle or dermal roller at various different places. All in all the procedure will take around one hour to complete.
