VAMPIRE FACE LIFT

The Vampire Facelift® (Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy) stimulates the body’s own natural healing powers, slowing and even reversing the ageing process. The technique is a radical, clinically proven medical procedure that uses the science of stem cells, and the healing factors in your own blood.

 

The unique approach combines the proven effectiveness of dermal fillers to restore lost volume, and Platelet Rich Plasma to actually stimulate the regeneration of new skin cells and collagen to create youthful beauty and radiance.

KEY TREATMENT AREAS

DR BERRY'S ADVICE

HEALING AND RECOVERY

PRP therapy can be used on the face, particularly around the eyes, mouth and nose, the backs of the hands, scars and all over the body, more commonly the décolletage and even the knees to give skin a more youthful and radiant appearance.

PRP can be applied to the forehead, upper eyelid/lower eyelid area to reduce wrinkles, and to the nasal-labial folds and marionette lines to provide volume to this area. Results can be seen within weeks of the procedure and continue to improve for several months to a year. People who are suffering from skin diseases such as SLE, allergies, porphyria, cancer, severe metabolic and systemic disorders, abnormal platelet function, critical thomobocytopemia, haemodynamic instability, anti-coagulation therapy and underlying sepsis cannot undergo Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy.

Since the PRP facelift is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that involves only injections, recovery time is minimal. You will not have any scars because we do not make any incisions; we only use needles. Also, since the substance used in the procedure derives from the patient’s own blood, there is very little risk of allergic reaction or abnormal response. The patient can return home right after the procedure. You may experience redness, which should go away after a few hours.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The Vampire Facelift® uses tiny amounts of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, combined with growth factors and unipotent stem cells taken from your blood, to provide a custom-designed procedure for restoring your natural beauty.

 

For many years scientists have known that unipotent stem cells lie dormant in the skin, waiting to provide the building blocks for healing and repair when we sustain an injury such as a burn or cut.

Until recently, doctors had no easy way to stimulate those stem cells to regenerate new tissue. By utilising the platelet-derived growth factors (PRP) from a patient’s own blood, we now have the ability to activate the patient’s stem cells to grow new, younger-looking skin.

The Vampire Facelift® takes the cosmetic rejuvenation process to a higher level

The activation of platelet cells (PRP) to release their growth factors is an essential part of the process and is done by using methods that are natural to the body.

The best way to visualise PRP is to remember that when the skin is healing itself, for example from a cut, a yellow substance is produced beneath the scab as part of the repair and renewal process.

This substance contains what is known as the ‘fibrin matrix’. Effectively our own natural PRP, it holds all the growth factors in place, which then activate the nearby stem cells to repair and produce new skin to heal the cut.
