As you grow older, your skin might start to show significant signs of aging. While this is completely normal, many people feel uncomfortable witnessing their skin lose color, collapse, droop, or become less smooth. Vampire Facial® and Vampire Facelift® addresses these minor and major signs of aging to provide an even facial aesthetic. For patients in Boca Raton FL, consider the benefits of Vampire Facial and Vampire Facelift for your aesthetic concerns.
Nobody wants to feel like they look tired or worn out when that’s not how they feel on the inside.
That’s where the Vampire Facial and the Vampire Facelift come in. These are two different procedures that focus on using your own blood to reinvigorate the skin, hence the name vampire.
Both procedures are becoming more and more popular throughout Hollywood stars due to the noninvasive nature of both treatments and the fast healing time. As for results, it may take four to six weeks for results to be fully realized, but most people say they feel their skin still looks more rested and younger than ever up to one year after treatment.
The Vampire Facial is the less involved treatment of the two. The Vampire Facial is designed to treat fine wrinkles and restore youthful glow of your skin. There are multiple stages to the procedure that will help your skin prepare for the maximum effects of the facial.
Step 1: Your physician will draw a small amount of your own blood. The blood will be run through a centrifuge to isolate growth factors that will later be used to restore your skin’s youthful appearance.
Step 2: A micro-needling device or dermapen will be used to create small micro channels in the skin. The body considers these micro channels to be a signal to stimulate growth factors that produce collagen and elastin.
Step 3: The growth factors harvested from your own blood in Step 1 will trigger your cells to regenerate the skin.
The Vampire Facelift is the slightly more invasive of the two procedures; however, it is still relatively pain free and leads to even longer lasting results. The term “facelift” in this sense simply refers to the lifted appearance your skin will possess following the treatment. Just like with the Vampire Facial, there are several steps involved.
Step 1: Your physician will use Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers to reshape your facial appearance to achieve a natural, younger look. Commonly used fillers include Restylane or Juvederm Voluma. The fillers will be injected into the deepest lines and wrinkles and used to regain the youthful look you had in years past.
Step 2: Just like in the Vampire Facial, your physician will take a small blood sample and run it through a centrifuge to isolate platelet-rich plasma or PRP. The PRP is what unlocks the growth factors that heal your skin and stimulate production of new collagen.
Step 3: Your physician will inject the growth factors back into your face in the places where the fillers were applied. The skin is tricked into providing newer, younger tissue to an area that it thinks is damaged. The procedure is essentially unlocking your skin’s own youthful cells.
The Vampire Facial and Vampire Facelift procedures are non-surgical solutions to aging that require zero downtime and boast smoother looking skin and long-lasting results. Your skin will experience an increase in the natural production of collagen and elastin over time, meaning that your skin will only get better with time.
