- The skin color changes because of less underlying blood flow.
- The shape becomes collapsed and droopy as muscle and collagen decrease.
- The texture of the skin becomes less smooth. As a result, the person looks worn, or tired or droopy. The lively, rosy hue seen in children of every skin color fades to a dull gray.
Treatment Pros & Cons
Balancing Your Decision
With so many ways to improve the face and with countless products and procedures available, why look for a better way?
Although there can be a place for a surgical facelift, such procedures are not necessarily a panacea or cure-all to the concerns of the aging face. Cosmetic surgery when needed can remove excess skin and make the person appear younger. However, a surgical facelift can actually contribute to a face collapse as the skin stretches tighter against the bone making the person look skeletonized.
With hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, the face is truly lifted away from the bone and youthful volume can be restored to a beautiful shape. With that in mind, the HA fillers should not be used around specific areas near the eye. Furthermore, the injector must be careful to avoid creating a shape that looks foreign to the persons face or even foreign to this planet. Also, the HA fillers are not extremely effective for improving skin tone and texture
Vampire Face Lift Procedure
Creating The Shape
The first part of the Vampire FaceLift Procedure utilizing HA fillers to begin sculpting specific areas of the face. The glycosaminoglycans (what an HA filler replaces) act like a sponge that holds water in the face providing a basic shape. This initial injection of HA is the precursor to the ultimate desired form.
Next comes the polishing and refining step of the sculpting process which ultimately contributes to the appearance of a younger version of you.
Creating Platelet-Rich Plasma
From You To You
Within a matter of minutes, your practitioner can create autologous, which means from you to you, PRP and activate your stem cells for the Vampire FaceLift Procedure.
First: the practitioner draws a similar amount of blood required for a basic lab test.
Second: the practitioner places the blood into a centrifuge and spins the blood at a very rapid rate to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood.
Third: The platelets are activated by using one of two methods that are natural to your body. This activation of platelets is the final step in producing your very own platelet-rich plasma. The best way to visualize PRP is to remember the yellow goo that surrounded the scab you had when you fell on your knee as a child. The thickening of the serum to form that yellow material holds specific growth factors in place that call stem cells to the area and activates them to create new skin.
Activating 8 Growth Factors
Platelet-rich plasma is similar to HA fillers because it can be injected to sculpt the face. But, heres the best part: not only does the PRP cause an increase in the volume, PRP contains at least 8 growth factors that will over a long period of time, continually work like a rejuvenating agent.
By activating these growth factors, all three parts of the aging process improve:
- The skin color becomes a younger color because of new blood vessel formation.
- New collagen formations in the dermis lifts the face back to a more youthful shape.
- Because the growth factors are working to build a new dermis, the epidermis (the outer most layers of your skin) appears smoother.
The Science Of Pure Beauty
The third and final part of the Vampire FaceLift Procedure implements the science and mathematics of pure beauty.
As far back as Leonardo da Vinci up until the present day, physicians, scientists and artists have worked to define what shapes, contours and proportions make a face more beautiful.
The challenge becomes how to take a face and bring out that which is beautiful, without creating a shape that appears unnatural. In the art and science of pure beauty, millimeters are miles. Therefore, the physician employs the ideas of artists and scientists who have deeply studied beauty when considering where and how much HA filler and growth factor to apply. Although this third component is the most difficult, it is to be
