If you’re bothered by lax skin and other signs of aging, but don’t want an invasive, expensive facelift, consider a Vampire Facelift® at the Laser & Vitality Institute. The unique therapy combines the power of dermal fillers to restore volume with the regenerative properties of growth factors in your blood. Call cosmetic specialist Angelina Devera, MD, or book a consultation online at the Fountain Valley, California, office for your Vampire Facelift.
A Vampire Facelift is an aesthetic procedure that combines an injectable dermal filler with powerful growth factors drawn from a few teaspoons of your blood. The Vampire Facelift offers the unique advantage of both enhancing the texture and suppleness of your skin while restoring volume and smoothing away wrinkles.
Unlike invasive surgical procedures, a Vampire Facelift doesn’t require a lengthy recovery. This type of facelift is ideal if your face has lost some of its full, youthful shape and you don’t need excess skin removed.
Your Vampire Facelift at Laser & Vitality Institute is a multi-step therapy. Your provider first draws about two teaspoons of blood from your arm and then treats it in a spinning device called a centrifuge, which quickly isolates platelets in your blood to create a plasma-rich fibrin matrix.
Meanwhile, your Laser & Vitality Institute provider numbs the areas of your face where you’re receiving treatment. They inject a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in your body. The filler works to lift and plump lax and wrinkled areas of your face to give you a more youthful, rested look.
Your Laser & Vitality Institute provider then makes a series of injections of plasma-rich fibrin matrix into your face. The platelets used in the injections are twice as concentrated as they are in your blood and contain special growth factors. The injected plasma activates multipotent stem cells within your skin. The stem cells promote the growth of new, younger tissue over time.
After treatment, Laser & Vitality Institute provides you with Altar® cream to enhance your results. The cream is made of natural plant ingredients to promote microcirculation in your skin.
You may notice some tenderness and swelling for a day or two where you had injections. Laser & Vitality Institute provides pain medication and instructions for caring for your face to minimize swelling and irritation.
The appearance of your skin may improve over 2-3 months. Your results may last for up to two years, although results vary from person to person. Your Laser & Vitality Institute provider discusses your aesthetic goals beforehand and the results you might expect based on your age, health, and the condition of your skin.
If you’re ready to achieve a natural, more youthful look without surgery, call Laser & Vitality Institute or book a consultation online for a Vampire Facelift.
