Have you heard of the Vampire FaceLift® or platelet rich plasma(PRP) procedure? Many people are talking about it, including Hollywood stars. The procedure uses the patients own blood to perform the skin rejuvenation that women and men are looking for without surgery.
First the physician uses hyaluronic acid fillers to shape the face. Then a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and placed into a centrifuge to separate the platelet rich plasma. Finally the PRP is “activated” and 8 growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue are released. These are thought to increase collagen & new blood flow. To rejuvenate new skin, these growth factors must be put back into the face. Finally the physician injects the patients own growth factors back into the face. These growth factors then activate stem cells already in the skin and new younger tissue is generated.
“In my opinion, fillers are much better at adding volume. There may be a place for PRP for superficial texture improvement and filling of more superficial lines and tear troughs.” says Dr. Soni. We recommend many different hyaluronic acid fillers to restore volume in sagging and wrinkled skin. Chemical peels and laser resurfacing are also an option.
