Medical Spa in Pittsburgh Now Offers A New Type of Facelift: A Vampire Facelift

Vampire Facelift is a new trending procedure to rejuvenate the face that does not involve incisionsthat extend around the ear. Basically, it’s a non-surgical cosmetic rejuvenation of the face through injection of a platelet-rich plasma mixed with a synthetic filler.

Vampire Facelift is a procedure that involves withdrawing a patient’s own blood, processing it to create “platelet-rich plasma (PRP),” then re-injecting it into the face to minimize wrinkles and create a more youthful look. This is a new hot trend in the cosmetic and celebrity world.

The face starts showing signs of aging generally due to loss of blood flow, drooping muscle, decrease in collagen and loss of skin texture. Vampire Facelift offers a procedure of restoring shape, improving tone and texture, as well as rejuvenating new and younger tissue. It involves 3 steps. First, the procedure involves injecting fillers (usually Hyaluronic Acid) to begin sculpting specific areas of the face and giving a beautiful shape. Second, the physician isolates growth factors from the patient’s blood. Third, when these growth factors are injected into the face, the mutipotent stem cells become activated to grow new tissue. This new tissue includes new collagen, new fatty tissue (for smoothness), and new blood vessels (for a healthy glow).

This procedure can be used to treat “smile lines” (the folds that run from the bottom of the nose, around the corners of the mouth and down to the chin) and other unwanted folds and wrinkles on the face in a similar fashion to dermal fillers. It differs from them in that it does not involve the injection of a foreign substance into the skin, since the growth factors are derived from the persons own body.

The procedure involves drawing blood from the patients arm, centrifuging and isolating the platelets and injecting back into specific areas to induce growth of new collagen, skin tissue, and blood vessels in the skin around each injection site. This lifts the skin away from the bone, creates skin volume and new blood flow, thereby sculpting the face and creating a more youthful appearance. Usually this improvement can continue for approximately 12 weeks and can last as long as 12 months.

The scientific basis begins with the platelets natural role in healing. In response to any tissue damage in the body, platelets aggregate and release growth factors embedded in a gel like matrix which stimulate multipotent stem cells to develop into new tissue and blood vessels to repair that tissue. Since the stem cells have the ability to develop into whatever cell type that is required to repair the injury, the body is able to regenerate healthy tissue. This concept has been tested by physicians for treatment as growing bone, reducing the appearance of scars and stretch marks, healing burns and fostering dental regrowth. The multipotent stem cells then develop into new collagen, new blood vessels, and new fatty tissue trying to “repair” the skin that was never injured! The result is younger-appearing skin!
