Platelet rich fibrin matrix ingredient: Vampire facelift
The Vampire Facelift is a “designer procedure” developed as a way to enhance volume in the face using a combination of hyaluronic acid 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. Platelet-rich fibrin matrix starts with a blood draw, in the normal blood test is done from the laboratory. 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 added to the PRP to turn it into the thicker and longer lasting platelet-rich fibrin matrix.
Platelet-rich plasma is used throughout the medical world for its wound and injury healing properties. It also stimulates 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.
Ordinarily the face will age in two 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. Because of this the skin will appear dull instead of being tender and glamorous 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 (turkey neck).
Platelet rich fibrin matrix ingredient: Hyaluronic acid fillers for adding youthful volume
Doctor Akoury explains that for Vampire Facelift® to work effectively, first the doctor will apply injectable hyaluronic acid dermal filler like Restylane or Juvederm. It is important to remember that 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, commonly known as the apples of the cheeks.
- 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 constraining 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. Akoury will apply her natural artistic abilities with her technical skills and over two decades of experience to perform your procedure.
