The first word that many people think about when they hear about the Vampire Facelift procedure is blood. And that thought is not entirely wrong. A Vampire Facelift is a cosmetic procedure that utilizes a person’s blood components to create an anti-aging effect. During the process, a doctor draws blood from the client’s arm and then processes the blood to separate the plasma from blood cells. The doctor then numbs the client’s face and re-injects the platelet- and protein-rich plasma into the facial muscles. They also inject the client’s face with Juvederm® to promote anti-aging.
What are the Risks of Vampire Facelift Surgery?
Since Vampire Facelift is a soft tissue surgery, it carries with it all the risks associated that type of procedure. A person who undergoes this process can expect to have some irritation, itching, bruising and swelling around the injection sites. Like with all other surgical procedures there is a small risk of infection at the injection sites. In most cases, clients realize the results of the treatment approximately three weeks after the procedure.
The Benefits of Vampire Facelift Procedures
Some people report seeing the benefits of Vampire Facelift surgery moments after undergoing the process while for others, the results become observable after a few weeks. These results include:
- Less visible fine facial lines, including crows and wrinkles
- Brighter and more supple skin
- Reduced underside eye hollows
- More youthful appearance
Scientists are also currently exploring the possibility that PRP procedures like Vampire Facelift surgery could facilitate wound healing.
