Eternal Youth…Humans have been in search of it since the time Adam and Eve were kicked out of the Garden of Eden and lost it! Until now the only ageless beings have been mythical gods and goddesses and the dreaded vampire! The vampire or the “undead” drink other people’s blood to remain alive and in the process maintain youth and beauty. Well, good news…anyone can look younger without drinking blood and the only blood involved is your own! The Vampire Facelift® restores shape, improves tone and texture to the skin as well as literally rejuvenating new and younger tissue!
The Vampire Facelift® Procedure
The creator(maker?) of this procedure is Charles Runel MD. He describes the procedure as follows: First, the physician uses Hyaluronic Acid fillers to create a beautiful and natural shape. Then the physician isolates growth factors from the patient’s blood. When these growth factors enter the face (injected) multi-potent stem cells become activated to grow new tissue. The new tissue includes new collagen, new fatty tissue for smoothness and new blood vessels for a healthy glow.
The use of fillers (Juvederm or Restylane) fills out the facial contours giving it a more youthful appearance. The next step, which extracts approximately 2 teaspoons of blood is centrifuged thus isolating platelets or plasma from the blood. This takes somewhere around 10-15 minutes and is done in the office. Those platelets are then activated to release at least 8 growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue. These growth factors increase collagen and new blood flow. To rejuvenate new skin, these growth factors must be put back into your face.
The face is first numbed and a small needle is used to inject the patient’s own growth factors back into the face.These growth factors activate multi potent stem cells already in the skin “tricking them” into thinking there’s been an injury thus causing new younger tissue to be generated.
The multi potent stem cells develop into new collagen, new blood vessels and new fatty tissue trying to “repair” the skin that was never injured! The result is younger appearing skin! The effects of the procedure continue to improve for 2-3 months and can last up to 2 years!
This procedure is not effective in everyone. Check with a qualified plastic surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate.
