Vampire Face lift
WHAT IS A VAMPIRE FACELIFT?
The Dracula Facelift is being hailed as one of the most exciting new procedures in the cosmetic world. It works by using the patient’s own blood to rejuvenate the skin.
Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment (PRP) is also known as the ‘Vampire or Dracula Facelift’. The results are not instant, but the gradual and natural looking results means that this treatment appeals and is suitable for many people. This treatment works incredibly well both on its own and when used to complement another treatment.
HOW DOES IT WORK
The platelets, when re-introduced via injection, release growth factors. These growth factors help with tissue regeneration, which in aesthetic medicine has a valuable effect on the skin’s texture as well as addressing fine lines and pigmentation. Research has also shown that PRP can help stimulate hair growth in those suffering from hair loss or thinning hair.
Any area of the face; forehead, upper and lower lids, around the crow’s feet, lip lines or the entire face as part of skin rejuvenation.
PRP is also used as part of the treatment for acne (both scarring & active) and as mentioned, to promote hair growth.
WHO SHOULD HAVE PRP?
PRP is a suitable for treatment for nearly everyone. However, it is not possible to administer PRP to those patients suffering from blood disorders, chemotherapy, radiotherapy or anticoagulation.
- Treatment uses the patient’s own blood therefore there is no risk of allergic reaction.
- No risk of cross infection.
- Natural looking results.
The treatment involves taking the patients’ blood and placing it in a centrifuge. This separates the red blood cells from the platelet rich plasma. A topical anaesthetic is then applied to the skin and 20 minutes later the platelet rich plasma is re-injected directly under the problem area.
