THE VAMPIRE SERIES
Scientists have known for years that unipotent stem cells lie dormant in the skin and provide the building blocks for healing when you sustain a burn or cut. Until recently, physicians had no convenient way to stimulate those stem cells to grow new tissue.
The Vampire Series is among the first set of procedures to harness this technology in the field of aesthetics, utilizing the growth factors found in the blood – specifically the platelets – to activate the unipotent stem cells in the skin and stimulate these cells to grow new, younger-looking skin.
VAMPIRE FACELIFT® TREATMENT
THE VAMPIRE FACELIFT® (IN CLEARWATER, FLORIDA)
HOW THE VAMPIRE FACELIFT® WORKS
The Vampire Facelift® is an outpatient medical procedure. It is a quick, non-surgical method which provides healthy and rejuvenated skin. This procedure works using Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). This technique extracts platelets from the patient’s own blood. The Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is used with a combination of Hyaluronic Acids as an injectable dermal filler which also lifts the skin away from the bone, restoring shape and volume to the face. Platelets serve as a good base for a dermal filler as they are known to be blood clotting cells which clump together. In the Vampire Facelift®, platelets are extracted by drawing the patients blood (about two teaspoons of blood are drawn) and spinning it through a centrifuge. The Platelet is then activated, causing “the release of eight growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue.” This can all be done in around 10 minutes. The effects of the Vampire Facelift® improve for up to two to three months after the initial procedure, and benefit can be detected for up to one to two years.
COUNTERACT COMMON AGING SYMPTOMS
As with many other things in life, skin tends to deteriorate as people age. Blood flow lessens and collagen and muscle also tend to decrease. Decreased collagen and muscle in the skin often leads to droopy and wrinkled skin. Less blood flow leads to decreased volume and also leads the skin to become more gray with time as opposed to full rosy skin. The Vampire Facelift® procedure works to fight and even counteract these common aging symptoms using a combination of platelet-rich plasma from the patient’s own blood with a combination of Hyaluronic Acid.
IS THE VAMPIRE FACELIFT® PROCEDURE FOR YOU?
No medical procedure is a one size fits all solution. The Vampire Facelift® is not suitable for everyone. If you have excess skin that needs to be removed in order to achieve a healthier, more vibrant, and rejuvenated look, then invasive cosmetic surgery may be the best option for you. However, cosmetic surgery is often an overboard, redundant, and unnecessarily solution to the issue at hand. If the main issues are loss of volume, shape, and wrinkles, but not excess skin, then the Vampire Facelift® may be the procedure for you. Call The Grossgold Clinic in Clearwater, Florida today and schedule a consultation with our physician to find out if the Vampire Facelift® procedure is right for you.
