Your own blood is the source of platelet-rich plasma (PRP). The process involves drawing a small volume of blood and placing it in a medical device called a centrifuge. The device spins the blood at a high rate of speed, causing the solid components to separate from the liquid plasma.
Your practitioner then removes the isolated platelets and places them back into the now-cleared plasma, creating a concentrated solution. Platelets are the component in your blood that facilitates the clotting function. They’re also rich in growth factors that promote cell growth and development.
When injected into the body, PRP creates several changes. Circulation to the area improves, which helps speed healing. New tissue begins to develop, and inflammation decreases.
When introduced into facial tissues, PRP helps stimulate new collagen and elastin development. These components help give your face the soft, rounded contouring of youth. As time passes, you lose much of your natural collagen and elastin, which causes visible aging in the form of lines, folds, and wrinkles.
These are the names of the procedures that use the regenerative properties of PRP to enhance the facial appearance.
The Vampire Facelift is a comprehensive non-surgical “liquid” facelift alternative that combines PRP therapy with the volumizing effects of hyaluronic acid fillers. PRP, derived from your own blood, contains growth factors that stimulate collagen production, improve skin texture, and promote tissue regeneration. Additionally, hyaluronic acid fillers are strategically injected to combat volume loss and restore youthful contours to the face. This dual approach helps to address multiple signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, hollowed cheeks, and sagging skin. The Vampire Facelift is a minimally invasive procedure that can provide noticeable improvements in skin tone, texture, and overall facial rejuvenation.
The Vampire Facial, on the other hand, is a non-surgical treatment that combines microneedling with the application of PRP to enhance skin rejuvenation. Microneedling involves creating tiny microchannels in the skin's surface using a specialized device. This process stimulates collagen production and allows for better absorption of topical products. Following microneedling, the prepared PRP is applied to the treated area, penetrating the microchannels and delivering growth factors deep into the skin. The Vampire Facial promotes collagen synthesis, enhances skin elasticity, and improves skin texture, resulting in a more youthful, glowing complexion.
Both the Vampire Facelift and Vampire Facial offer numerous advantages for individuals seeking skin rejuvenation without undergoing surgery. These treatments are minimally invasive, require little to no downtime, and can be customized to suit individual needs and goals. They harness your body's natural healing mechanisms to stimulate collagen production, improve skin quality, combat volume loss, and restore a more youthful appearance.
Because PRP is made from your own blood, there is very little chance of a negative reaction. That’s why PRP is becoming such a powerful tool in treating issues like joint damage and hair loss.
In the hands of a highly skilled medical professional, the process of having blood drawn and then having PRP injected back into your body is perfectly safe. The team at SheMD embraces the highest standards when it comes to both techniques and sterile treatment areas.
