Look young again without surgery
The Vampire Facelift ® is a method of restoring the youthful appearance of the face without the pain, downtime, and expense of traditional plastic surgery. It uses your own blood components (hence the "vampire" analogy) to not only reduce or remove wrinkles, but also to improve facial contours, enhance skin tone and give the face a healthier texture - something that even a surgical facelift can't do.
Once we get beyond the age of about 30 we begin to gradually lose fat, subcutaneous tissue and even bone from our faces. This results in less volume underneath the skin of the face. But we don't lose any skin, so without the underlying support , and with the continuing influence of gravity, our facial skin begins to sag and form folds and wrinkles.
The Vampire Facelift® uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP), obtained from your own blood, and hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural component of your skin and subcutaneous tissue, to restore the fat and subcutaneous tissue of your face. It stimulates the growth of new cells in selected areas and returns the overlying skin toward its natural, youthful position and condition. This technique does not, however, leave the skin looking like it has been pulled tightly over the face as sometimes happens with surgical facelifts.
But that's not all. The growth factors that are released by platelet-rich plasma also stimulate the cells of the overlying skin. This results in new skin growth - skin that is stronger, with better color and texture. This is what truly sets the Vampire Facelift® apart.
The Vampire Facelift® procedure is done by anesthetizing the face and then injecting the PRP and HA carefully at appropriate places through very fine needles. It takes about an hour to perform and you can go back to your daily activities immediately afterwards with no downtime at all.
The Vampire Facelift® is not for everybody. It is not a cure for all facial cosmetic problems. Drs. Harrison and Andrew will be happy to perform an initial consultation. While they have been trained in the Vampire Facelift® procedure by Dr. Charles Runels, the originator of the procedure, they have updated and improved the procedure since then and term it the PRP facelift. If they determine that you are not a candidate for the PRP Facelift we will be pleased to offer you an alternative treatment or refer you to a competent specialist who can handle your needs.
