If you don’t want or are unable to have surgical cosmetic treatment for a face lift, there is a painless alternative called the Vampire Facelift. It has been given this name because the treatment involves injecting your blood platelets into your facial area, giving it a rejuvenated look and feel, with reduced fine lines and wrinkles.
You can have this procedure to treat areas around the nose, eyes and mouth, or in the back of your hands and your décolletage. It is a cheaper alternative to surgery at an affordable price and is quick and painless.
Here are the answers to some of the most common question asked about the Vampire Facelift.
How do you get my platelets to inject them?
The procedure is known as Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment and it is done by taking some of your blood and then placing it in a centrifugal machine, which separates your blood and platelet plasma.
The platelets are nature’s clotting agents the plasma creates new tissue with collagen, which then plumps up the skin and gives it that fresh young look. Once the plasma has been separated, it is then injected or using a dermal roller back into various points on your face.
What is the procedure?
First of all your blood will be taken, it’s about the same amount as a blood test. This is put into the machine. Meanwhile your skin will be cleaned and a topical anaesthetic applied in order that the procedure is totally painless.
After around 30 minutes you will be ready to have the injections of plasma into your face. This will be done with a fine needle or dermal roller at various different places. All in all the procedure will take around one hour to complete.
Will there be any bruising?
You shouldn’t have any bruising or swelling but it is possible and there should be no pain, but this should only last a few days. Make sure you don’t put anything on your face, like creams or make-up for 24 hours after the procedure in order to avoid infection.
Is the effect immediate?
