The Vampire Facelift™Harness the dual power of Platelet Rich Plasma and hyaluronic dermal fillers to restore fullness, freshness & firmness to your features, leaving you looking as dynamic on the outside as you feel within!
What Is a Vampire Facelift™?
A Vampire Facelift™ is a powerful medically innovative aesthetic treatment that has been designed to rejuvenate, firm & heal, enabling a fresher, fuller & firmer visage. The awesome name behind this equally awesome aesthetic treatment originates from the fact that it utilizes the enriching powers of blood taken from your own body (PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma) alongside the aesthetic benefits of hyaluronic fillers. Using your own blood plasma for enriching aesthetic benefits might sound like a technology of tomorrow, but in truth, its power has already been extensively recognized in multiple medical contexts.
Vampire Facelifts™ rely on the use of a hyaluronic filler such as Juvéderm®, and effective dermal filler, which is then combined with Platelet Rich Plasma, a technology already extensively utilized in a wide range of fields such as sports medicine, orthopedics, traumatology, general surgery, dentistry and cosmetology, all with clinically-proven results. In recent years, the procedure has migrated to the field of aesthetics & anti-aging, with many of our clients now reporting amazing results.
The NFL and pro athletes (e.gTiger Woods) often use PRP to speed up healing from injuries given its evidence-based benefits. The combination of both therapies – hyaluronic fillers and PRP – is designed to actively & powerfully amplify the effects of each.
What is PRP?
PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, is a product that uses a small amount of a patient’s own blood (usually around 2 teaspoons) which is first drawn in a simple, virtually pain-free in-office procedure. The blood is then passed through a centrifuge, which concentrates platelets within the blood to create a platelet-rich serum that is then re-injected into the body at the localized site where the patient needs it most (in the case of a Vampire Facelift™, this is the face, although we can also use it for multiple sites, such as the breast area to provide firmness & lift).
What Do Platelets Do?
Platelets work with GH (Growth Hormone) within the body to play a vital role in the tissue healing & immunology response. They help to activate the body’s natural healing response, also acting as messenger substances that influence processes such as tissue morphogenesis, autocrine, paracrine & endocrine signaling, binding to surface receptors on target cells by running relay systems, transcribing mRNA, and secreting corresponding proteins. The outcome of these processes is accelerated healing & cell activity. The subsequent use of PRP in the healing of multiple soft tissues & musculoskeletal injuries such as tennis elbow, golf elbow, Achilles tendon damage, plantar fasciitis & rotator cuff syndrome is well documented.
The migration of PRP technologies to the field of aesthetic & regenerative medicine is relatively recent but we are already seeing some great results, offering a means of rejuvenating & restoring fullness and smoothness to facial skin. We find that we see particularly impressive results when PRP is combined with other therapies such as hyaluronic dermal fillers, as is the case with the Vampire Facelift™. Given that PRP is a product that uses materials derived completely from the patient, it has the benefit of being completely natural, free of synthetics & is already perfectly tailored to the unique biological profile of the patient! In a sense, PRP is, then, perhaps, the most highly customized aesthetic product that exists today!
What Can I Expect?
When you come into the Doctors Studio for a Vampire Facelift™, you can expect high-quality care from our fully licensed, experienced medical professionals from the moment that you step through the door.
Following a consultation to ensure that the treatment is right for you, a nurse will draw a small amount of blood from your arm, which will then be placed into a high-speed centrifuge for around ten minutes. Hyaluronic dermal filler is then applied by a fully trained & qualified nurse, followed by the Platelet-Rich Plasma treatment. Micro-needling technology is used to inject the Platelet-Rich Plasma into the facial area, which stimulates the secretion of collagen and other proteins that enables the skin to renew, heal & rejuvenate more effectively. Microneedling generates microchannels within which PRP is injected. We use a gentle local anesthetic, if needed, to make the treatment as pleasant as it can be for you.
The end result? Fresher-looking, younger & firmer skin!
Recognized in scientific literature as a promising therapeutic modality in the field of dermatology, we know that PRP can stimulate collagen, angiogenesis (the growth of new cells) & a more powerful rate of healing & regeneration. While more studies are needed to underscore its potential in the field of aesthetics, the growth factors that encourage the skin to release new stem cells, allowing the skin to revitalize itself, have already created great results for many of our clients! Here is just one of our great testimonials from a client who experienced the benefits of a Vampire Facelift™ for herself:
“I was seeing Dr. Roy for aesthetic treatments and went to an open house for the Vampire Facelift and saw very positive results. My face was bright and people commented how great I looked. My skin appeared warm and bright, and I was often asked how I kept myself looking so good. At a later visit, the subject of the O-Shot came up because I was experiencing the “sneeze and pee” incontinence. I decided to give it a try and it worked great — I do not have any more issues with incontinence.
It has been a very positive experience for me and it did not hurt at all. It was a simple procedure that I hope more doctors start offering so more women can benefit from the results.”
Here’s a short news feature of another one of our clients undergoing the Vampire Facelift™ with Doctors Studio founder Dr. Roy applying the PRP treatment. As you can see, while the name might sound a little scary, our client felt comfortable & happy throughout the process (as our clients always do!) – and was very pleased with the results!
Aesthetically Pleasing Results with the Doctors Studio
Some have found the Vampire Facelift™ so effective that they refer to it as a non-surgical facelift, and we are happy to report that many of our clients continue to report great outcomes. If you feel as if a Vampire Facelift™, a PRP treatment for other areas of the body, or a Vampire Facial™ (the use of PRP without fillers) might be an excellent choice for you, we look forward to talking you through the procedure and answering any questions that you might have!
