Yes… exciting news! The Vampire Facelift is here in San Jose! What is the Vampire Facelift and how can it help you?
The Vampire Facelift is a nonsurgical treatment that uses both hyaluronic filler and PRP to “lift” and restore volume back into the face. The ideal candidate is someone who has some loss of volume in the cheeks and under the eyes and some color and texture changes
The Vampire Facelift™ is a safe procedure for renewing the skin of the face and for correcting shape. Dr. Grace Kim, M.D. uses an HA (hyaluronic acid) filler to sculpt a naturally beautiful face, then uses PRP to polish the sculpture for improved color, texture and shape.
This treatment is natural in that your own cells are used. Since a distillate of growth factors from your own blood (PRFM or platelet rich fibrin matrix) 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 water is absorbed and prior to the complete action of the cellular regenerative process.
Within 2-4 weeks you will see improvement with continued changes for 12 weeks. There’s 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 body actually rejuvenating and growing. The PRFM stimulates new blood flow with new blood vessels.
The results of this treatment can last, but results may vary and research documenting the longevity of results is ongoing. As with all treatments, surgical and nonsurgical, the body reacts to sun, stress, diet, smoke, lack of sufficient sleep, and pollution by breaking down the collagen and elastin in the skin. We are exposed to many of these factors daily but we can limit their impact on our lives. Smokers do not respond as well to treatment than non-smokers, since the toxins in cigarette smoke block the response of the stem cells.
There may be some variation in achieving the results requested as everyone’s body type is different and may have a different response. As with all cosmetic medicine treatments, maintenance of your skin, using chemical peels and skin care topical treatments are additional ways to improve results. Call us today to see if you are a good candidate for the Vampire Facelift treatment.
