Restore Your Youthful Appearance
With Vampire Facial Anti-Aging
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is reference describing a non surgical aesthetic procedure utilizing the patients own blood. The process involves injecting platelet rich fibrin matrix (PRFM), originally from the patient, into appropriate areas of their face to rejuvenate their youthful appearance.
The process resembles the same as performed for other dermal filler products such as Restylane and Juvederm. Vampire Facelift is a coined phrase for enriching blood plasma with platelets (PRP), and activating them by using calcium chloride or thrombin. By way of this process the platelet rich plasma takes on a viscous gel consistency. The end result is a product that contains high levels of various platelet derived growth factors called cytokines that is now ready for injection into facial tissue.
Does Your Skin Illustrate 3 Signs of Aging?
- Skin pallor changes due to decrease blood flow resembling a gray colour in appearance.
- Facial tissue starts to decrease resulting in sagging and a collapsed look, especially around the cheek area and jaw line.
- Skin resilience diminishes, taking on the appearance of dull and far less smooth than times previously noted.
Why This Procedure Over Other Filler Methods?
There are several methods available to rejuvenate the face. Why not look for a better avenue for treatment?
Without the natural filler component to the skin, a surgical facelift can resemble skin on bone. This is not an attractive quality or youthful looking. The goal is for the return of loss tissue, resulting in the tired and droopy effect that promotes the look of aging. In most cases for cosmetic surgery to be highly successful for the look of rejuvenation, a more permanent emulsion of your own blood matrix is a viable solution.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is abundant in our tissues when we are infants. It is for this reason that is has been said that babies bounce like rubber balls. Hyaluronic acid decreases with age and is enhanced by any number of health and dietary habits. Problems occur with HA fillers when injected too near the eye. The result by the injector is not always smooth and can look distorted and not natural to the person’s face.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) offer very little improvement to the exterior look of the skins tone, texture and colour.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is unlike other traditional procedures. PRP can provide all the required elements for new and younger tissue appearance such as the restoration of shape and the improvement of texture and tone.
What is Involved in the Process?
3 Step Process for Platelet rich plasma (PRP) Procedure
- The first step entails the injection of Hyaluronic acid (HA) to provide the desired shape.
- The next procedure involves the doctor isolating the growth factors in the patient’s blood.
- The growth factors become activated once injected into the skin, due to the multi-potent stem cell enhancement that grows new tissue. The new tissue is comprised of new blood vessels for the restoration of colour and glow: and collagen and new fatty tissue for suppleness and a smooth appearance.
1. The Process for Creating a Beautiful and Natural Shape
The initial process for sculpting a youthful appearance to the face starts with the nurse practitioner injecting Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler. Products may include such examples as Restylane or Juvederm. This is the first step in Platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment. The nurse practitioner is careful to maintain the patient’s natural shape.
Practitioners of the Platelet rich plasma (PRP) application encompass the structural dynamics of beauty, defined by extensive research, reaching back as far as ancient masters to ensure the creation of a natural shape.
Once the initial procedure is completed, the nurse practitioner commences with garnering the patients own blood for the growth factors normally utilized by the body to restore damaged tissue.
2. Steps to Isolate and Active the Growth Factors in the Blood
First the nurse practitioner removes approximately 2 teaspoons of blood.
The nurse practitioner continues with the apparatus called a centrifuge which isolates the platelets from the blood. The production of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is accomplished within ten minutes while at the office.
Centrifuge Description Used to Isolate Platelets
Once activated, the platelets release approximately 8 or more growth factors normally regulated in the healing process of injured tissue.
Like a magic pill if one did exist, these growth factors increase new blood flow and collagen production. In order for the rejuvenation process to be successful, the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) must be reapplied into the skin.
3. Injecting Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) into the Face
For a comfortable experience, the nurse practitioner applies a numbing cream on the surface of the skin. Using a particular format, the nurse practitioner injects the patients own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) back into the face. The process of stem cell activation starts to take place in a manner that would normally occur is the skin had been injured. The result is the generation of renewed younger tissue.
