Specific methods are in place to ensure that no harm will come to the patients; not doing so may do severe damage.
You might be wondering what is so special about this procedure, and it is best to know what it is first.
What is Vampire Facelift?
Vampire facelift or also known as Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a procedure that uses the patient’s blood to create the platelet-rich plasma (PRP). The process uses hyaluronic acid (HA) and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to help to give you a youthful glow, smooth and bright skin, to lessen the wrinkles and fine lines, and make you look years younger naturally. It also removes the sag in the skin caused by weight loss or aging. The whole process also helps your skin to be firmer and more elastic.
How does it work?
- Shaping your natural beauty – For a vampire facelift, starts by sculpting and contouring the natural shape of the face, enhancing and lifting the saggy skins with the use of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which is also known as fillers. It is injected in a very meticulous and specific way to ensure a natural-looking younger appearance. This is also a significant part of the vampire facelift that is not present in other facial procedures.
- Collecting blood – After the hyaluronic acid (HA) had set in, the next thing is to collect blood from the patient’s arm of about two teaspoons. The collected blood from the patient will then be processed to extract the magical component of it.
- Getting the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) – The platelets are sequestered from the blood through a centrifuge. It takes 10 minutes to have the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) ready for use on the next step.
- Growth factors – The physician then activates the platelets to release the same growth factors used by the human body to heal injuries. It has similarities to stem cells, both platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cells use your body’s healing abilities for different purposes. In this case, the growth factors that were activated regenerates skin, increase collagen production, and improve blood flow. These growth factors need to be put back in your body to start doing wonders.
- Getting the magic started – The next step is almost a no pain process for most patients, the harvested growth factors are injected into the patient’s face in a precise way using a tiny needle and a numbing cream. It then activates pluripotent stem cells sitting idly on your skin and tricking your body to react as if there is an injury and that the tissue should be regenerated.
What should I do after getting the procedure?
Since the procedure is non-invasive, there is very minimal downtime. It would be best to avoid exposure to the sun and prevent pets and children from touching the treated area to prevent any possible problem. It is also recommended to avoid putting make-ups or using products with active ingredients until the next two days.
There is also a possibility of slight discomfort. Avoid scratching the treated area, and make sure that everything that you will use in your face is clean –towels, linens, pillow covers. It is also preferable if you will not put your phone near your face or use a loudspeaker. If it is unavoidable, wipe your phone first before putting it close to your face.
Of course, there is a post-procedure care routine that you can do not just to speed up the process but also to enhance the results. Altar® is coacting with vampire facelift.
