The Vampire Facelift is a medical procedure for healthy, youthful, and rejuvenated skin.
The procedure was made famous by Kim Kardashian, who underwent a procedure called “The Vampire Facial” in 2013 (referring to it as a “blood facial”).
The Vampire Facelift is a treatment using the body’s own natural healing and growth factors that are derived from one’s own blood (hence the name The Vampire Facelift ), combined with a Hyaluronic acid dermal filler.
The Vampire Facelift is a treatment developed to enhance volume in the face using a combination of Hyaluronic acid (such as Restylane) and platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM), which is a thicker form of platelet-rich plasma (PRP).The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is then separated by spinning the patient’s blood through a centrifuge. Platelet-rich plasma appears as a clear yellow serum after it is separated from the darker components made mostly of red blood cells. Platelet-rich plasma is used for its wound and injury healing properties. It also stimulates the production of collagen and tissue regeneration.
An activator like Calcium chloride (CaCl) is added to the PRP to turn it into the thicker and longer lasting platelet-rich fibrin matrix.
The platelet-rich fibrin matrix is an ideal natural serum for rejuvenating facial skin quality and volume as it works at several levels-
- Increases the formation of new blood vessels (also called “Neovascularization”) and increases the blood flow to the skin, resulting in healthier and better quality skin.
- Increases new cell formation for skin renewal.
- Stimulates the production of new collagen, which is the major component of facial skin that diminishes and hence causing facial aging.
- Activates the multi-potent stem cells already in the skin by tricking it into thinking there is an injury, resulting in the use of a combination of growth factors and stem cells to generate new fatty tissue.
While doing a Vampire Facelift the areas that are targeted are Lines at corners of the mouth, “Bunny lines” or “bunny nose” — dynamic wrinkles on the nose, Crow’s feet (lines in corners of the eyes),Forehead wrinkles, Frown lines, Smile lines, Plumping of the cheeks.
The procedure is almost painless. It takes about an hour for the treatment to be done and the full results are seen in approximately 3-4 weeks of the treatment.
