The Vampire Facelift is a skin care treatment procedure established as a way to enhance volume in the face using a combination of hyaluronic acid (such as Restylane) and platelet rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) which is a thicker form of platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
The key ingredient for Vampire Facelift is platelet-rich fibrin matrix, which is derived from the patient’s own blood before being mixed with other factors. The blood is drawn in the normal way as it is done in the laboratories. The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is then separated by spinning the patient’s blood through a centrifuge. Platelet-rich plasma appears as a clear yellow serum after it is separated from the darker components made mostly of red blood cells. Calcium chloride (CaCl) or other activator is then added to the PRP to turn it into the thicker and longer lasting platelet-rich fibrin matrix. The PRP is used primarily because of its effectiveness in wound and injury haling abilities. Besides that it also arouses the production of collagen and for tissue regeneration. These properties enable platelet-rich fibrin matrix as an ideal natural serum for rejuvenating facial skin quality and volume with increased collagen production, blood supply, and new skin and fatty tissue generation, creating the youthful appearance that comes with generating new, healthier skin.
Normally the human face ages in two major ways:
- There is loss of volume from bone, muscle, fat, and skin. This can make the under eye area and cheeks look flat and hollow. The skin can look dull or gray instead of being rosy as it was when younger.
- The loss of support of the skin results in drooping upper eyelids, lower eyelids, cheeks , jowls and sagging neck skin.
When you visit the home of experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center the first step of The Vampire Facelift® will be the application of injectable hyaluronic acid dermal filler like Restylane or Juvederm. One of the two main components of the facial aging process is the loss of volume due to a reduction of facial bone, muscle and fat. Dermal fillers add youthful volume to the face, while keeping a natural appearance. Hyaluronic acid fillers do not paralyze facial muscles like Botox, so volume is added without inhibiting facial movement or expressions.
There is an art to the application of fillers for a natural and youthful appearance, and you can be confident that Dr. Dalal Akoury will apply his natural artistic abilities with her technical skills and over 20 years of experience to perform your procedure.
The Vampire Facelift procedure only takes about an hour, including the: blood draw, preparation of the PRP, platelet-rich fibrin matrix, and The Vampire Facelift® treatment itself.
Since skin renewal and rejuvenation is using the body’s own active regeneration components, facial skin renewal is continual for about 3 months after the procedure. The overall effects of the Vampire Facelift® can last for over a year.
The Vampire Facelift® is not for everyone. People with more advanced signs of aging may benefit from surgical treatment and/or Botox applications. People with less visible signs of aging may benefit from using less extensive non-surgical procedures like hyaluronic acid fillers and platelet-rich plasma alone. A personal consultation with an accredited provider like Dr. Akoury is the best way to determine if The Vampire Facelift® is right for you.
Cigarette smoke interferes with the body’s growth factors and with tissue healing and regeneration. If you do smoke, The Vampire Facelift® will not produce the same results as it would in a non-smoker. Smokers may be better off with hyaluronic acid filler application such as Restylane or Juvederm rather than using platelet-rich fibrin matrix.
The Vampire Facelift® can be done in conjunction with wrinkle treatments such as Botox or Dysport. Dr. Akoury can help you determine what corresponding procedures are right for your individual case, and develop a plan you will be comfortable with.
