A traditional facelift is a cosmetic surgery where a doctor removes excess skin on the patient’s face, tightening up the overall appearance. The procedure is used to eliminate wrinkles, and to make the patient look younger. For those who are seeking a non-surgical alternative to a traditional facelift though, another option is the vampire facelift.
What Is A Vampire Facelift?
While it might sound like something out of a Hammer horror movie a vampire facelift is actually a safe, non-surgical procedure used to help make someone look and feel younger.
The way the procedure works is that a patient has some of his or her blood taken, and that blood is then used to create a platelet-rich fibrin matrix, or a PRFM. The PRFM is a thick gel that’s packed with platelets and growth factors which will help the body repair itself naturally. This gel is then injected into the patient’s face like any other filler. The PRFM helps smooth out wrinkles, but it also helps the skin and underlying tissue regrow and regenerate itself.
The Advantages of The Vampire Facelift
The major advantage that the vampire facelift offers patients is that it’s a non-surgical procedure. This means that it can be done easily, quickly, and often with less cost than some surgical procedures. Also because the platelet-rich fibrin matrix is made from the patient’s own body there’s no need to introduce foreign materials; the body is simply getting back an altered version of what was taken out of it in the first place. Lastly the vampire facelift attempts to help the body repair itself for a more natural beauty, instead of cutting away excess skin and sculpting the results with cosmetic surgical methods.
With fewer potential risks, it’s no wonder that more people who want to shrug off years are opting for a vampire facelift instead of the more traditional surgery. After all if you could get the same results with a simpler, easier procedure then wouldn’t you?
