No single beauty treatment can do it all. Each one has its own benefit and gives you certain results. As such, why choose just one? Often, combining beauty treatments can give you double the benefits. The Vampire Facelift® is a treatment with a spooky-sounding name, but the only thing scary about it is the scary-good results! This treatment is not your ordinary facelift as there is no surgery involved.
How the Vampire Facelift® Works
The Vampire Facelift® is typically a three-step beauty treatment that works to make you look years younger. There is a lot of art and skill to the treatment so it is important to visit a skilled provided such as Dr. Falcone and her team at the Falcone Center.
First, we will sculpt your face through the use of dermal fillers that are made of Hyaluronic Acid such as Restylane and Juvederm. Then we will use platelet rich plasma from your own blood (PRP therapy) to heal and rejuvenate your skin. The last step is a SkinPen Microneedling session to stimulate collagen production and help improve the tone and texture of the face.
The Basics of Fillers
Facial fillers work wonders to restore volume to your face as well as giving you the lift and contour you need to look younger and fresher. The fillers we use for the Vampire contain hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that naturally occurs in the body to help plump the skin. Synthetic hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are safe and effective in combination with your own PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma).
As we age, our skin doesn’t produce as much hyaluronic acid, and that is one reason your skin becomes thinner and you lose shape around your eyes and cheeks. Facial fillers will fill out your face and help eliminate lines and wrinkles. The facial fillers will create the foundation we need for the next step in the process: PRP.
The Basics of PRP
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, uses the power of your blood in order to achieve facial rejuvenation. This part of the process requires a routine blood draw. The sample will then be placed into a centrifuge in order to break it into its different components. Platelet-rich plasma is full of powerful growth factors and white blood cells which can stimulate a more youthful appearance to the skin.
At the Falcone Center, we use the EmCyte and Magellan TruPRP dual-spin centrifuge systems. Both systems provide the highest quality of platelet rich plasma to ensure you are getting maximum benefit. Quality of PRP does make a difference!
We also have the ability to test you PRP to ensure therapeutic concentrations of platelet rich plasma. This is quality assurance provided in few centers in the country but available at the Falcone Center.
Because PRP supercharges your body’s healing ability, it is able to rejuvenate your cells and tissue. That means your skin will be rejuvenated with your fine lines and wrinkles fading and your complexion becoming clearer.
If you are able to have a little pink tone to the skin for about 3 days, we suggest a microneedling session in combination with the dermal filler and PRP injections for a full Vampire Facelift treatment. At the Falcone Center we use the FDA approved SkinPen for our microneedling. We will apply a thin coat of PRP to the skin and stamp it into the skin with our SkinPen device. The micro punctures stimulate collagen production giving the skin improved tone and texture. A series of Microneedling sessions every 3 months after your Vampire Facelift will help to maintain your results.
Why Choose the Vampire Facelift®
On their own both facial fillers and PRP can work wonders, but you can see even better results when you pair them together with microneedling. The Vampire Facelift® is able to give you a sculpted, defined face while also rejuvenating your skin so that it looks fresher, smoother, and tighter.
The treatment is affordably priced considering the combination therapy of PRP, microneedling and a dermal filler in one session.
You can have the procedure done at Falcone Center and easily get right back to your life. We are conveniently located in Bala Cynwyd, Maple Shade, and Lambertville. To schedule your Vampire Facelift® consultation, contact us today, and let’s get you looking spooky good!
