PRP Vampire Facial®/Vampire FaceLift®
Featured on Good Morning America, The Doctors, Cosmopolitan and The Real Housewives of New Jersey and made famous by celebrities such as Kim Kardashian & Bar Refaeli, The Vampire Facial/Vampire FaceLift is Hollywood's favorite procedure!
The Vampire Facial
Made famous by Hollywood celebrities to keep their skin glowing and camera ready, The Vampire Facial has become a popular procedure.
The Vampire Facial is a procedure which combines platelet-rich-plasma(PRP) with the use of sterile microneedling device.
Please note that there is a difference between The Vampire Facial and The Vampire Facelift.
The Vampire Facial does not involve any injection with a syringe.
The PRP (platelet rich plasma) is applied directly over the skin and the fine needles of the microneedling device create hundreds of “tiny channels” to the top layers of the skin, triggering the wound healing and repair cascade.
What is PRP?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy involves using your own blood, enriched with platelets containing various growth factors to remodel collagen, repair skin damage and create new skin. Growth factors and platelets are the main agents that stimulate new skin cells and repair the skin.
THE VAMPIRE FACIAL® INVOLVES AN APPLICATION OF PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP) WITH GROWTH FACTORS INTO THE DEEPER LEVELS OF THE SKIN USING REJUVAPEN®. THE PROCEDURE IMPROVES SKIN TONE AND TEXTURE FOR A SMOOTHER AND GLOWING LOOKING SKIN.
The medical microneedling procedure using the Rejuvapen is a method of “collagen induction therapy” also referred to as “CIT”. This controlled injury to the dermis, cause the skin to respond with collagen to soften the appearance of acne scars, fine lines/wrinkles as well as superficial sun damage.
The platelet rich plasma(PRP) delivery to the dermis further enhances the microneedling treatment by enhancing collagen stimulation with the growth factors in the platelet rich plasma (PRP).
The platelet rich plasma (PRP) also has factors that stimulate blood supply to the skin.
The benefits of this treatment can be noticed immediately, but your skin will continue to improve over the next several weeks/months.
The Vampire Facial treatment is customized to the needs of each patient.
The main advantages and benefits from The Vampire Facial include:
• Acne scars
• Chicken Pox scars
• Fine lines & wrinkles
• Sun damage & brown spots
The Vampire Facelift
During The Vampire Facelift treatment, Dr. Suh will use a syringe to inject PRP and/or PRFM (platelet rich fibrin matrix) directly under the skin. This treatment is often performed in conjunction with other cosmetic dermal fillers to achieve the most desirable outcome.
The Vampire Facelift treatment can be done to fill in lines and wrinkles, improve hollow areas of the skin and scars.
The main advantages and benefits of PRP and/or PRFM include:
• Tissue regeneration
• Elastin and collagen growth
• Correction of scars and acne scars
