Haven’t You Heard! “The Vampire FaceLift Blog”
If you have not heard of the Vampire FaceLift® yet, class is now in session. I have attached some links to my YouTube channel which has informational videos about all the concierge aesthetic services I offer my clients here in West Palm Beach. This procedure is changing the aesthetic lives of patients all across the country. The procedure was created by world renowned physician Dr. Charles Runels, he is also founder of the American Cosmetic Cellular Medicine Association which holds all copyrights to the Vampire Procedures®. The entire family of procedures includes Vampire Facelift®, Vampire Facial® Vampire Breastlift®, O-Shot® & P-Shot®.
The Vampire FaceLift® – What is PRP?
To understand the Vampire FaceLift and any of the other Vampire procedures we must first take a look at the base science of PRP. (Platelet Rich Plasma) This substance is derived naturally from your own blood using a special centrifuge. Without getting too nerdy; the simple explanation is an anti-aging reaction created within a concentrated area inside the body. The specialization of the targeting process combined with the platelet reaction to pseudo-micro injuries creates a full scale recovery operation inside the target area. So in layman terms: The platelets are an important part of you with extreme healing properties. When they are centrifuged, processed, and extracted, they become the perfect micro-healers working constantly behind the scenes, in this case, concentrated intradermally in the face. Basically the purpose of the procedure is to put billions of platelets to work on the collagen building process. This reaction builds the framework so that a cell called fibroblast responsible for forming collagen can start the collagen restoration process. We lose 1% of collagen each year, giving us a tired, less smooth looking appearance. Our body does not build collagen on its own, it has to be tricked into thinking it has been injured to start the entire process. The results can start as soon as the next morning but typically the collagen restoration process takes anywhere from 8 weeks to 6 months to see full results. It is recommended that the procedure be repeated once every year to keep a youthful appearance. This way you can stop the aging process, and build a cumulative anti-aging effect within the facial tissue.
Does it Hurt?
If you watch any reality TV, or have done some research on Vampire FaceLift you have undoubtedly seen Kim Kardashians face splattered with red blood cells. This is not reality, the real procedure does not use the serum (red) portion of the blood so there should be no red at all. It is probably just dramatic effect to produce social media activity, which is fine, this is the Kardashians we are talking about after all. The patient should not look much different directly after the procedure, they certainly are not covered in blood. There is very minimal bruising if any at all, a slightly rosy appearance is about the most noticeable after effect. You could safely go to work or out to dinner right after this procedure if you absolutely had to. I can say from first hand experience this procedure does not hurt. On a scale of 1-10, I would say the worst part earned a number 3. The blood being drawn is the same as any blood bank or donation center, virtually no pain there. You will not feel the needles during the actual injections, but the plasma has a dull sting once inside the target area. Let me illustrate that thought for my readers. When you fall and scrape your knee, the scrape has a burning sensation, as well as a yellow plasma inside and around the scrape. Most people believe the scrape itself is the culprit of the burning sensation; when it is actually the plasma that has rushed to the area to start the healing process. This natural reaction of plasma (filled with millions of platelets) is the target reaction we are creating when injecting PRP into the intradermal layers of facial tissue.
What does the Vampire Facelift Cost? $$$
The cost of the Vampire Facelift is a set minimum cost set by the creator to keep brand quality. The procedures covered under Vampire® copyright all have a set minimum price depending on the procedure. The Vampire Facelift is $1500. A small amount of complimentary Juvederm® dermal filler is mixed in to the PRP solution to give the patient an instantly noticeable younger appearance, and help form the framework for the collagen production process. If a doctor or plastic surgeon wants to offer the Vampire Facelift he or she must undergo a rigorous training workshop hosted by the creator. If they do not go through the training courses they cannot legally offer any of the Vampire Procedures. There is an online registry of physicians who have been trained and certified by the America Cosmetic Cellular Medicine Association®, you can easily find a Doctor in your area by clicking here.
My Vampire FaceLift Experience
Let me tell you my first hand results. I am overwhelmingly pleased with the overall results. I did see some immediate improvements in my cheek area and tear trough region, but the improvements seen immediately were minimal. The amount of Juvederm injected with the PRP is very small so the immediate results are very small. Within a month, I looked at my picture before the procedure and was stunned. At two months, my face looked like it did in my 20’s. It was hard to believe my body could rebuild the soft tissue that had been lost over time. This process created a natural, more youthful me. It has now been 4 months since I had the Vampire FaceLift, and I couldn’t be happier. I feel this has had the biggest change in my appearance and, in turn, my confidence. This procedure is not a quick fix or instant, but the changes happen overtime so it is super natural looking and people make comments about how great I look, but they can’t put their finger on what is different. That makes the Vampire FaceLift the perfect facelift in my opinion, to still look like yourself just years younger. I plan on doing this once or twice a year to stop the aging process. The cost is minimal when I think about all the products, small procedures and cosmetics I buy throughout the year. I truly think this is the best procedure on the market today!
