The Vampire Series
Scientists have known for years that unipotent stem cells lie dormant in the skin and provide the building blocks for healing when you sustain a burn or cut. Until recently, physicians had no convenient way to stimulate those stem cells to grow new tissue.
The Vampire Series is among the first set of procedures to harness this technology in the field of aesthetics, utilizing the growth factors found in the blood – specifically the platelets – to activate the unipotent stem cells in the skin and stimulate these cells to grow new, younger-looking skin.
The Vampire FaceLift®
The Vampire FaceLift® is a custom-designed procedure that combines the science of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, such as Juvederm, the technology of Platelet Rich Plasma and the artful eye of a skilled physician to deliver youthful, natural beauty as unique as you. The dermal filler is used to create the shape by restoring volume lost in the aging process. The PRP is used to stimulate the regenerative process of the skin; creating a younger skin that glows with vitality.
The Vampire Facial®
The Vampire Facial® is a very simple yet incredibly effective strategy for rejuvenating the face. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood is applied and worked into the skin with a professional micro-needling tool. The micro- needling tool creates micro punctures in the skin thus activating the collagen and elastin cascades to create new cells and rejuvenation. The PRP is used to simulate stem cells that exist in the face.
The Power of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
The human body has a remarkable capacity to heal itself. Regeneration of new tissue is accomplished by the natural production of stem cells. PRP involves the application of concentrated platelets rich in bioactive proteins, which release growth factors to stimulate cellular regeneration and accelerate tissue repair. The benefits of PRP were initially used in wound healing, dentistry and the treatment of sports injuries, but have now evolved to address aesthetic concerns and physiological dysfunction. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is one of the most advanced, effective natural treatments for cellular rejuvenation throughout the body.
How does PRP work?
A PRP treatment begins with a simple blood draw and can be completed within an hour. Your blood is spun in a unique centrifuge that separates plasma and platelets from the rest of the blood. The plasma, now highly concentrated with rich platelets, is collected in syringes and is injected back into your tissues, where needed. The growth factors stimulate stem cells to create new, youthful tissue, including areas in the face, scalp, sex organs, muscles and joints. It’s like turning back the clock and what was old and damaged is made new and repaired. It’s the essence of regenerative medicine and the beauty of it is the PRP procedures utilize what your body has produced, so your body will readily accept the treatment without reaction or rejection. PRP procedures are minimally invasive and typically, patients experience very little discomfort with no downtime.
