Using blood-derived growth factors (platelet rich fibrin matrix [PRFM]), the Vampire Facelift®, Hands and/or Décolletage is a safe procedure for renewing the skin of the face, hands or Décolletage.™. The vampire procedure promotes actual growth of new tissue by stimulation of uni-potent stem cells, so the change is not from something foreign being in the body, but from the tissue actually rejuvenating and growing. The PRFM stimulates new blood flow with new blood vessels (neovascularization). This is combined with Juvederm to create a smoother look!
This treatment is natural in that your own cells are used, treated with platelets that are not foreign to the body, and injected into the specified areas. Since a distillate of growth factors from your own blood (PRFM) is used, there should be no side effects from the material injected.
The body reacts to the treated cells as it does to a wound and immediately starts repairing the tissue. This builds the underlying tissue with tightening, smoothing, and increased blood flow (which makes the color more attractive). You should see improvements immediately, although there is usually a return to prior treatment status in 3-5 days as the fluid/cells are absorbed and prior to the completion of the cellular regenerative process. Within 2-4 weeks you will see improvement with continued changes for up to 12 weeks.The results of this treatment can last, but results may vary and research documenting the longevity or results is ongoing.
