A vampire facelift may sound extreme, but rest assured they’re nowhere as scary as their namesake suggests. This cosmetic procedure involves using a patient’s blood to inject plasma as well as a hyaluronic filler, like Juvederm, into the skin to create a firmer and more youthful appearance.
If a vampire facelift piques your interest, you’re in luck– we do these easy procedures in our office here at The Med Spa Austin. They’re minimally invasive, have fast recovery rates, and provide immediately noticeable results. We’ll discuss everything you need to know about getting a vampire facelift in Austin.
How Does It Work?
Vampire facelifts work by extracting and isolating platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your own blood and then injecting it back into your face. The blood is spun at high speeds to make this separation occur. The plasma that is collected can help increase cell turnover, promote collagen production, stimulate circulation, and provide the skin with a natural, healthy glow.
In addition to injecting your own PRP into your face, vampire facials also include injecting hyaluronic acid-based fillers, like Juvederm, to add volume and structure to areas with fine lines or wrinkles. The combination of these two injectables increases blood flow, rejuvenating the skin from the inside out.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Vampire facelifts are great procedures for anyone who is concerned with aging skin. According to some doctors, PRP can sometimes respond better in younger patients, so it’s not a bad idea to start these facelifts early.
No matter what age you are, though, vampire facelifts can help reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and add youthful firmness. You can expect to see a 10-15% increase in facial volume, with these benefits lasting for a few years.
This treatment is not recommended for anyone with hepatitis C, HIV, AIDS, or any type of blood cancer. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, these conditions affect your blood palates which can interfere with the results.
