Everything You Need to Know about Vampire Facelifts
In the world of plastic surgery, we have countless patients come in and talk to us about the latest social media trends. Recently, ever since Kim Kardashian showed up online with shocking pictures of herself with a bloody face, there’s been a massive interested in the so-called Vampire Facelift.
Touted as an incredible way to gloss over fine lines and restore youthful volume, this procedure isn’t as scary as it sounds! In fact, it can be a great addition to any anti-ageing routine.
Here is everything that you need to know about Vampire Facelifts.
What is the Vampire Facelift?
There are no vampires involved here! In the most basic terms, a Vampire Facelift is the process of withdrawing your blood, processing it, and then injecting it back into your face. The thing that makes this process so effective is the processing. After your blood is taken, it is processed in such a way that the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is isolated. When your PRP is injected back into your skin, it adds volume while stimulating the production of more collagen and elastin. This ultimately makes your skin look revitalised and younger.
The Benefits of a Vampire Facelift
A Vampire Facelift offers a few key benefits to common beauty and ageing concerns by glossing over fine lines and wrinkles; revitalising loose, sagging skin; create a rosy and healthy glow; and filling in scars that can come from acne or surgery. Additionally, a Vampire Facelift can also be great for restoring the volume lost under your eyes and cheeks as you age.
What It’s Like to Get a Vampire Facelift
A Vampire Facelift typically takes under 30 minutes. Your doctor will use a topical anaesthetic so that you have a comfortable and pain-free procedure. Very fine needles are used during the process and most patients report little to no discomfort.
This simple and safe outpatient procedure can be done in flash. While you might experience some bruising or swelling at the injection site, it is only temporary. You will see the majority of the swelling disappear within a few hours and any remaining swelling is likely to disappear during the second day.
The Results of a Vampire Facelift
You will begin to gradually see results appear over the next few weeks after your procedures. While each patient’s results will vary, most men and women find that their results last around a year. After this time, you can get a quick and easy repeat procedure to maintain your results.
