Your Beauty Revived Through the Vampire FaceLift®
The popular Hollywood secret is out and the statistics show that Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment (PRP) commonly referred to as the Vampire Facial®, has become one of the most effective and popular anti-aging procedures. Dr. Shereen Timani at Johns Creek Dermatology in Johns Creek, GA is pleased to offer the Vampire FaceLift® Procedure, which combines the science of hyaluronic acid fillers (i.e., Restylane), unipotent stem cells, and beauty to provide a custom designer procedure. Unlike other facial rejuvenation methods that make use of toxins, the Vampire Facelift® uses two naturally occurring ingredients. The first is hyaluronic acid which is a chemical normally found within the skin. This is injected as dermal filler which produces immediate plumpness to smooth out deep wrinkles and folds.
The second ingredient of the Vampire Facelift® lends the treatment its unconventional name. Platelet Rich Plasma is collected from your own blood by using a centrifuge to separate plasma that is rich in growth factors from patients’ own whole blood. After drawing your blood, the blood is spun in a high speed centrifuge to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. The PRP is then injected into the areas of your face which received the filler to stimulate the creation of new skin cells and regeneration of damaged cells. Platelets contain substances called growth factors that activate and rejuvenate cells in the body. The concentrated platelets in PRP contain tremendous amounts of bioactive proteins, which include the growth factors PDGF and VEGF. These growth factors initiate accelerated tissue repair, and have positive effects on skin rejuvenation. The growth factors, when released, promote tissue repair, angiogenesis (capillary formation), and collagen production. The goal is to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, and the creation of new skin cells. Your skin will glow and immediately feel smoother and softer, with progressive improvements continuing for several months. This additional step extends the results of the Vampire Facelift® up to 18 to 24 months and if needed, patients can get touch-ups of the dermal fillers in between.
This procedure is specific and determined by the US Patent and Trademark office to be unique and original and is protected by the registered trademark: Vampire FaceLift®.
Benefits of Using the Vampire Facial®
The procedure combining microneedling with PRP is called the Vampire Facial®. The benefits of a PRP facial using micro-needling techniques include:
♦ Youthful appearance
♦ Skin tightening – Acceleration of collagen production
♦ Skin glow – formation of new blood vessels under the skin
♦ Eradication of wrinkles and fine lines
♦ Skin tone and texture improvement
♦ Dark circles under the eyes and eye puffiness
♦ Eradication of acne scars, sun damages, stretch marks
Results vary from patient to patient; On average, patients receive 3 treatments spaced one month apart. Optimal results are seen about 2 months after the last treatment. Many patients report seeing a benefit of the PRP treatment a few weeks after the first to second treatment.
Each treatment is typically about 45 minutes to an hour. Patients are required to use topical numbing cream 30-45 minutes prior to treatment. At the appointment, a small tube of blood is drawn; a similar amount required for a basic lab test. After the blood sample is collected, the blood is placed into a centrifuge that spins the blood to separate the platelets enriched with growth factors from other components of the blood.
All of the products used in this process are derived exclusively from the patient, so there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction. To eliminate any risk of intolerance, please discuss and disclose all medications and medical history with Dr. Timani.
