The Vampire Facelift® & the Vampire Facial® procedures differ in method and in benefits. The Vampire FaceLift® is a signature Rhett Women’s Center Aesthetics Suite procedure. Dr. Edmund Rhett is licensed by the Cellular Medicine Association to provide both the Vampire Facelift® & the Vampire Facial® procedures.
The Vampire FaceLift®
As we age, our skin color and texture diminish in youthful vitality. The shape of the face as it ages becomes collapsed and droopy due to muscle and collagen loss. The Vampire FaceLift is uniquely qualified to rejuvenate the face with a patented, combined method of Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers and PRP growth factors.
Vampire Facelift® Procedure
Injectables Sculpt the Face Shape
The physician uses a Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler (like Restylane or Juvederm) in a very specific way to sculpt a younger appearing face–while keeping the shape natural.
After creating a younger, natural shape, then the physician harvests from the woman’s own blood (hence the name Vampire) growth factors that her body would normally use to heal damaged tissue. Approximately 3-4 teaspoons of blood are placed in a centrifuge to isolate platelet rich plasma (PRP). This process take less than 10 minutes. The PRP regenerative growth factors are activated.
PRP Growth Factor Injection
Using numbing cream and a very small needle (for almost no pain), the physician injects the woman’s own growth factors back into her face in a particular way. These growth factors then activate stem cells already in the skin (tricking them into “thinking” there’s been an injury and new younger tissue should generate). This new tissue includes new collagen, new fatty tissue (for smoothness), and new blood vessels (for a healthy glow).
The result is younger-appearing skin! The effects of the procedure improve for 2 to 3 months and last for 1 to 2 years.
The Vampire Facelift® procedure, while effective, is not for everyone. Begin with a complimentary consultation to determine is the Vampire FaceLift or the Vampire Facial, laser therapies or fillers alone are the right procedure for your face.
The Vampire Facial®
The Vampire Facial is another option to achieve youthful tone, texture, and smoothing of lines on the face. The treatment is slightly different than the Vampire FaceLift, and follows the below three steps.
The physician isolates growth factors from the patient’s blood.
The provider uses a micro-needling device to create multiple micro-punctures –both driving the isolated growth factors into the skin & creating stimulus for tightening and rejuvenation of the collagen of the face.
PRP Growth Factor Application
The provider paints the growth factors onto the micro-punctures so that the growth factors soak into the tissue for further stimulation of tightening and skin rejuvenation.
The skin tightens, and glows with color, and scaring softens for a beautiful younger and very natural result.
Only certified providers of the Vampire Procedures (Facelift® & Facial®) should perform these procedures. Schedule your complimentary consultation to see if the Vampire FaceLift or Facial are right for you.
