Cosmetic surgery can remove excess skin and make the person appear younger. But, a surgical facelift can be more than what’s needed for some people (especially when loss of shape without extra skin is the main problem).
Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers such as Juvederm® or Restylane® lift the skin away from the bone to restore youthful volume and shape. But HA fillers can cause problems near the eye. Also, the injector of HA fillers can chase a wrinkle and create a shape that looks foreign to the person’s face. The HA fillers do little to improve skin tone and texture. Unlike most procedures, the Vampire Facelift® offers a way of both restoring shape, and improving tone and texture, as well as literally rejuvenating new and younger tissue!
3 Steps of the Vampire FaceLift® Procedure
The injector (1) uses HA fillers to create a beautiful shape. (2) Then, the provider isolates growth factors from the patients blood. (3) When these growth factors enter the face (injected by the provider), then mutipotent stem cells become activated to grow new tissue. This new tissue includes new collagen, new fatty tissue (for smoothness), and new blood vessels (for a healthy glow).
Creating a Beautiful & Natural Shape. In the first part of the Vampire FaceLift® procedure, the AllYou Medical Spa estheticians use an Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler (like Restylane® or Juvederm®) in a very specific way to sculpt a younger appearing face–while still keeping the shape natural. After creating a younger, natural shape, then the provider harvests from the woman’s own blood growth factors that her body would normally use to heal damaged tissue.
Isolating & Activating the Magic from Your Blood. First, the provider draws about 6 teaspoons of blood. Then, using a centrifuge, the provider isolates platelets from that blood (platelet-rich plasma or PRP)–all within about 15 minutes in the office! Then she “activates” those platelets to cause the release from the platelets of at least 8 growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue. These growth factors work like magic to cause increased collagen & new blood flow. To rejuvenate new skin, these growth factors must be put back into your face.
Injecting the Magic into Your Face. Using numbing cream and a very small needle or combined with a special skin roller (for almost no pain), the provider injects the woman’s own growth factors back into her face in a particular way. These growth factors then activate multipotent stem cells already in the skin (tricking them into “thinking” there’s been an injury and new younger tissue should generated). The multipotent stem cells then develop into new collagen, new blood vessels, and new fatty tissue trying to “repair” the skin that was never injured!
