What’s in a name? Sometimes, a happy surprise! Sure, the idea of something called a “Vampire FaceLift”™ can spark a “Whaaattt?” reaction. But before your imagination runs wild, know this: The name may sound Medieval, but the Vampire FaceLift actually utilizes some of the newest, smartest technologies around. Think of it as a cutting edge treatment that eliminates the cutting.
What, a facelift that doesn’t require going under the knife? It may sound like science fiction or something out of “The Vampire Diaries” or “Twilight” but it’s very real, and set to become the next big thing in skin rejuvenation. The Vampire FaceLift actually merges the best features of two effective treatments: Dermal fillers, plus a process that that can turn your own blood into a kind of youth serum. And it’s as easy as having a blood test.
Here’s the basic science behind a Vampire FaceLift. You start by donating a few vials of your own blood, that’s as much “ouch” as you’re going to feel. Then your blood is placed in a special machine called a centrifuge, where it’s spun at very high speeds. This spinning procedure will separate red blood cells from a rich golden component called platelet rich plasma, or PRP.
And now, this natural treatment can “boost” the effectiveness of dermal fillers. In Step Two of a Vampire FaceLift, your client;s own PRP is mixed with Juvéderm, Restylane or a similar product just before injection. As a result, these dermal fillers become supercharged: the filler itself provides the initial volume to fill in lines and wrinkles, while the PRP helps stimulate the production of collagen so your clients get longer lasting results. Plus, since PRP also helps circulation, your client’s complexion gets another kind of lift: A rosy, youthful glow.
Yes, the name may sound like a turn-off, but the results are a guaranteed turn-on!
