With a strange, but fitting name for a life-changing procedure, the Vampire Facelift® is an advanced rejuvenation treatment that can bring you back a healthier, younger appearance. With the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), Dr. Cornell McCullom can stimulate skin regeneration, increase collagen formation, and leave you with confidence in your newfound beauty. Learn more about the procedure in our quick guide.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Your blood consists of two elements — a liquid called plasma, as well as small, solid components such as platelets and blood cells. Platelets are useful to your facial rejuvenation because they can activate biochemical processes in your body, releasing proteins and growth factors to restore your skin.
How is PRP treatment used?
Dr. McCullom has used PRP for over fourteen years in what is now known as the Vampire Facelift®. After carefully drawing a small amount of your blood, Dr. McCullom will use a centrifuge to separate the different components within the sample. Once the platelets have been isolated, these components are returned to your face, targeting wrinkles or other areas that you are looking to restore.
How does the Vampire Facelift® work?
This impactful treatment will hasten the healing processes in your skin, eliminating or minimizing wrinkles and improving overall appearance. In addition, PRP treatment can also increase the length of time that dermal fillers last, making it a powerful resource when used alongside other cosmetic treatments like Botox®.
For the best results, Dr. McCullom recommends up to three treatments that are four to eight weeks apart. You may notice improvements in your skin texture within the first month, while collagen regeneration typically takes three months. The treatment will continue to improve your appearance for up to a full year.
If you are looking to change your life with facial rejuvenation, then PRP treatment may be the right solution. With over 18 years of experience, Dr. McCullom has the training and compassion to bring you the uplifting results you desire. Contact our office today to schedule a consultation with us.
