In the world of cosmetic medicine, it seems like every other day a new treatment comes out and becomes the latest trend in the scene, with patients from all over the country clamoring for their local medspa to add it to their aesthetic arsenal. And while many of these treatments are at first seen as being the secret to eternal youth and have countless patients advocating for it – the vast majority of these methods will fade into obscurity and be yesterday’s new only to pop-up on occasional specials and promotions. This is most certainly not the case with the vampire facelift! Offering amazing facial rejuvenation, many experts, such as the ones at Alluring Image, the best medical spa Delray Beach has to offer, have compared the effects of the vampire facelift to a combination of dermal fillers, facials, chemicals peels and micro needling – all wrapped up into one trendy, albeit bloody, package! While the Vampire Facelift certainly started off with he hype of many other procedures we discussed above, it is one of the rare few that actually works and has even out performed previous thought. However, the level of hype surrounding this procedure has led many patients to have it done when they truly don’t need to, and could just easily opt for far simpler procedures to treat their issues. It begs the question, should you get a Vampire Facelift, or maybe opt for simpler facials or chemical peels instead? In this article, we will learn more about the procedure, what it best treats and some reason why a patients should have it done.
What is the Vampire Facelift?
With one of the coolest and most catchy names around, the Vampire Facelift was an instant hit, and rarely does a name fit a procedure as well as this one. The Vampire Facelift is pretty bloody, as the name would lead you to believe. And the blood here isn’t a side effect, but more so the main point of the treatment. The vampire facelift is a procedure that creates the youthful, rejuvenating effects of a facelift without an actual surgery. Instead, the vampire facelift gets its name because it incorporates PRP extracted from blood which is then mixed with different dermal fillers to give patients a youthful, rejuvenated look. Using a combination of PRP or platelet rich plasma therapy, and dermal fillers, the procedure takes advantage of the body’s own healing process and the restorative properties found in blood cells. The platelet rich fibrin matrix derived from a patient’s own red blood cells. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and other blood components are separated in a centrifuge, and combined with a hyaluronic acid based filler like Juvederm or Restylane, creates what is known as PRFM. Its important to understand that the combination of treatments work so well together and provide patients with immense skin benefits. The combination is known to naturally boost collagen production, blood flow, soft tissue healing, and triggers skin growth and fat tissue regeneration.
When Should You Consider a Vampire Facelift?
sure, the procedure is amazing, and will benefit anyone – no matter what their skin issues might be. I mean, who couldn’t use more collagen production! But its important to understand that if you already have solid, healthy skin you could simply get away with he use of certain facials or chemical peels or a simple microneedling procedure or even a dermal filler like Juvederm or Restylane on its own, as opposed to this method. generally, the best candidates for the Vampire Facelift are those patients who suffer from two main issues.
Fine Lines & Wrinkles:
If you have a face full of wrinkles, especially if you are wrinkling prematurely, then the Vampire Facelift is a great option for you. According to Alluring Image, the best medical spa Delray Beach has to offer, it’s most effective for those who are suffering from static wrinkles, that are caused from a loss of collagen and thinning skin as we age. The combination of PR with the hyaluronic acid based dermal filled stimulate the collagen production while simultaneously providing the HA filler in the meantime. This leaves patients with far smoother, softer, more supple skin – that in many cases will look ten years younger – after the typical 5-7 day recovery period.
Poor Skin Laxity:
The second most common reason for the Vampire Facelift is for those patients who have loose, hanging skin that is a victim of gravity and aging. again, the combination of HA fillers and PRP increase blood flow, while sending vital growth factors to the area, and collagen and elastin. Giving your skin back its elastic texture and leaving it tighter and more taught while stimulating the production of facial fatty tissue which is needed to support a more youthful look, free from loose skin.
Are You the Ideal Candidate?
The fact is that the ideal candidate for the Vampire Facelift, according to the team at Alluring Image, the best medical spa Delray Beach has to offer, is someone in their 40’s or 50’s of middle age, with moderate wrinkles around the eyes, nose, lips or mouth areas and is somewhat who suffers from wrinkles due to facial volume loss – as opposed to expression lines. For someone who is suffering from extremely severe wrinkles and hanging skin, while the procedure will help it won’t provide the correction you are after and it might require an actual surgical facelift – but its important to listen to the advice of your doctor and have your skin analyzed carefully before deciding on anything.
