A Vampire Facelift is an out-patient procedure that can reduce wrinkles and sagging skin in under a half hour. The procedure is inexpensive compared to a traditional facelift. The rich-plasma platelets are derived from the patient's own blood, so patients prone to allergic reactions can often tolerate a Vampire Facelift. There is usually no recuperation time, so patients can resume their regular schedules immediately. The results of the procedure vary based on the skin's condition and the number of plasma-rick platelets in the blood, but the skin appearance is likely to improve for a year or more.
On the date of the procedure, a surgeon will remove blood from your body. Then the small container of blood is put in a centrifuge, so it can twirl vigorously until the platelet-rich plasma parts from the rest of the blood. The physician inserts the platelet-rich plasma into areas of the skin where fewer wrinkles and smoother skin are desired. The rich plasma may also promote tissue repair, collagen and elasticity.
A Vampire Facelift is an FDA approved procedure.
Side Effects and Limitations
The Vampire Facelift may promote discoloration or burning sensations in some patients. Some patients may pass out when a physician extracts blood from their bodies. The procedure works best on sagging or wrinkling skin, so it may not be suitable for all areas and skin types.
The cost of a Vampire Facelift varies based on geographic area, but an average fee for the procedure is $800. According to physician interviews in the Huffington Post, the pricing is more costly than other injections. Visit www.plasticsurgeryguide.com for more information about this new procedure.
