The Vampire FaceLift®is a non-surgical, no downtime, form of facial rejuvenation that uses your own natural blood cells to lift and restore the healthy glow to the skin of the face. Zinnia Aesthetics and Anti-Aging Clinic offers the Vampire FaceLift® to improve the skin of the face without invasive surgery. The aim of the Vampire FaceLift® is to make the skin appear younger with more volume, better color, and a healthy glow. Although some may have a subtle change the results can be impressive leaving you with a more youthful complexion and a radiant glow in the twilight!
Good candidates for this procedure are men and women who are not looking for the dramatic results of a face lift or would never consider any other injectable fillers. Clients who are looking to give their face a more youthful and natural appearance are ideal candidates for the Vampire FaceLift®.
Do You Show These 3 Signs of Aging?
- Skin color becomes more gray because of less blood flow.
- Facial Shape becomes collapsed and droopy as muscle and collagen decrease.
- Skin texture becomes less smooth. As a result, the person looks “worn”, or “tired” or “droopy”. The lively, rosy hue (seen plainly in playing children of every skin color and in young adults) fades to a dull gray.
Why the Vampire?
With many ways to rejuvenate the face, why look for a better way?
Cosmetic surgery can remove excess skin and make the person appear younger. But, a surgical facelift can be more than what’s needed for some people (especially when loss of shape without extra skin is the main problem).
Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers lift the skin away from the bone to restore youthful volume and shape. But HA fillers can cause problems near the eye. Also, the injector of HA fillers can chase a wrinkle and create a shape that looks foreign to the person’s face or even foreign to this planet.
The HA fillers do little to improve skin tone and texture.
Unlike most procedures, the Vampire Facelift® offers a way of both restoring shape, and improving tone and texture, as well as literally rejuvenating new and younger tissue!
3 Steps of the Vampire FaceLift® Procedure
Creating a Beautiful and Natural Shape
In the first part of the Vampire FaceLift® procedure, the physician uses an Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler (like Restylane® or Juvederm®) in a very specific way to sculpt a younger appearing face–while still keeping the shape natural.
Providers of the Vampire Facelift® procedure take into account the mathematics of beauty as defined by much research (starting with the notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci) to avoid at all costs creating an unnatural shape. These ideas about the HA fillers are not commonly known even among the best of cosmetic surgeons and constitute part of the intellectual property protected by the trademarked name (Vampire Facelift®).
After creating a younger, natural shape, then the physician harvests from the patient’s own blood (hence the name Vampire), growth factors that her body would normally use to heal damaged tissue.
Isolating and Activating the Magic from Your Blood
First, the physician draws about two teaspoons of blood. Then, using a centrifuge, the physician isolates platelets from that blood (platelet-rich plasma or PRP)–all within about 10 minutes in the office!
Then the physician “activates” those platelets to cause the release from the platelets of at least 8 growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue.
These growth factors work like magic to cause increased collagen and new blood flow. To rejuvenate new skin, these growth factors must be put back into your face.
Injecting the Magic into Your Face
Using numbing cream and a very small needle (for almost no pain), the physician injects the woman’s own growth factors back into her face in a particular way. These growth factors then activate multipotent stem cells already in the skin (tricking them into “thinking” there’s been an injury and new younger tissue should generated).
The multipotent stem cells then develop into new collagen, new blood vessels, and new fatty tissue trying to “repair” the skin that was never injured!
The result…younger-appearing skin!
The effects of the procedure improve for 2 to 3 months and last for at least 9 months to 2 years!
Use Your Blood to Rejuvenate Your Face
The Vampire Facelift® procedure is not for everyone.
Many would do better with surgery, or laser therapy, or Botox®, or simply PRP or an HA filler used alone. All of the providers on this web site display passion about offering you the right procedure for your face.
What Makes The Vampire FaceLift® Unique?
The combination of products is what sets this technique apart from its face lift and injectable filler counterparts. The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes and starts with blood being drawn from the patient. The blood is taken the same way it would be for a normal blood test. Once blood has been collected, it is then centrifuged and the platelets are separated from the red blood cells.
The platelets are then introduced to a calcium chloride solution which causes the platelets to release growth factors. Small amounts of synthetic injectable fillers like Restylaneor Juvederm may be added to the mixture as well if needed. Once all of the ingredients have been combined, a small gauge needle is used to inject the product into specific areas of the face which has been numbed with a topical gel. The procedure is very tolerable with minimal discomfort and little downtime.
The Vampire FaceLift® works at the stem cell level, generating new tissue. The procedure can restore volume, color, and a healthy glow to your skin.
The procedure produces immediate results with improvement continuing for approximately 12 weeks. Results lasts at least 9 months to 2 years.
