Vampire Facelift Philadelphia
Do You Show These 3 Signs of Aging?
Is your skin looking grey or changing in color due to less blood flow as you age? Facial skin can look dull and less vibrant over time due to decrease blood flow.
Do you have a droopy facial shape due to muscle, bone and collagen decrease over time?
Have you lost the smooth and dewy skin texture of your youth?
If you answered, “Yes” to any of these questions, it may be time to consider a Vampire Facial or Vampire Facelift procedure.
Why the Vampire Facelift ?
Cosmetic surgery can remove excess skin and give you a younger appearance but a surgical facelift may be more then you want or need at this time.
Injectable fillers can be used to lift the skin away from bone restoring volume and shape to the face but they do little to improve skin tone and texture.
If you want to look more youthful but are not ready to go under the knife and fillers alone are not giving you the boost you need …a Vampire procedure may be right for you.
The Vampire Facelift (R) offers a treatment that can restore shape, improve tone and texture, as well as literally rejuvenating new and younger tissue!
Here’s how it’s done…
3 Steps of the Vampire FaceLift® Procedure
First, Dr. Falcone will use a hyaluronic acid filler (Restylane or Juvederm) to create a beautiful shape to the face. The hyaluronic acid fillers are injected in a very specific way to keep the shape looking natural. The technique used for the filler injection portion of the Vampire Facelift were taught to Dr. Falcone by the inventor of the Vampire Facelift procedure, Dr. Charles Runels.
Once the hyaluronic acid filler injection is completed, a small amount of blood will be drawn from the arm and used to isolates growth factors from the blood sample using the Magellan TruPRP device. You can watch your own blood being turned into a smaller fraction of platelet rich growth factors in sixteen minutes using the Magellan TruPRP device.
When the platelet rich growth factors are ready, Dr. Falcone will use a numbing cream and a small needle or cannula to inject them gently into the face. The process of injection activates cells to regenerate tissues creating new collagen and blood vessels for a more youthful glow.
Some patient will want to combine a Vampire Facial with their Vampire Facelift to treat their skin on the outside at the same appointment. With a Vampire Facial, a micro needling device is used to make tiny punctures to the skin’s surface. The micro needling device helps to drive the platelet rich growth factors into the skin. It also stimulates a wound response indicating to the body that healing needs to take place. In doing this, the tissues are stimulated to grow new collagen refining the tone and texture of the surface.
After your Vampire procedure you can expect some mild swelling and redness to the skin. If you experience a bruise from injection, you can consider taking homeopathic remedy Arnica Montana to help any bruising resolve faster.
The treated area should be kept clean with avoidance of any harsh products, chemicals, perfumes, exfoliating treatments or extreme temperatures for a minimum of one week.
In approximately 3 weeks, you will begin to notice improvements from your platelet rich plasma procedure with final results expected in 3 months.
