Rejuvenate Your Skin From Within
At Woodlands Medical Aesthetics Institute, we can help your body’s own natural processes rejuvenate your look with the Vampire Facelift® and Vampire Facial® in The Woodlands, TX.
What Is a Vampire Facelift®?
During the Vampire Facelift® procedure, platelet rich plasma (PRP) is injected into the face, usually following where dermal fillers have been injected. The dermal fillers create volume while the PRP stimulates blood flow and the growth of new cells, vessels, collagen, and fibroblasts in the skin, making it more healthy and glowing. PRP can also be injected by itself, without the need for dermal fillers in some individuals.
What Is a Vampire Facial®?
The Vampire Facial® is a PRP treatment combined with SkinPen® microneedling or Sciton® Halo™ laser skin resurfacing treatments. PRP is applied directly after the treatment, promoting quicker healing while getting deep into the skin without injecting it. PRP comes from your own blood and contains several different growth factors and cytokines that stimulate healing. Once PRP is injected or applied after a Vampire Facial®, it repairs and regenerates the tissue. Some of the growth factors and other cytokines present in PRP include:
- platelet-derived growth factor
- transforming growth factor beta
- fibroblast growth factor
- vascular endothelial growth factor
- epidermal growth factor
- Interleukin 8
- keratinocyte growth factor
- connective tissue growth factor
The benefits of PRP can last 1 to 2 years.
