What in the world is a vampire facelift and why you’ll want one!

At first glance, you might balk at the idea of any beauty treatment that includes the word vampire. Even if popular culture has made “The Vampire Diaries” and “Twilight” big hits, can anything vampire-related really make you more beautiful? Yet that’s precisely what the “Vampire Facelift” at FINETUNE Medspa does—and (spoiler alert) there’s no cutting or bleeding involved.

Actually, the “Vampire Facelift is a kind of nickname. Officially, this cosmetic procedure is known as “The Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial Lift.” That’s a mouthful, but it’s actually a very accurate description once you understand how the treatment works.

Unlike traditional “lifts,” a Vampire Facelift does not involve going under the knife. Instead, your practitioner uses dermal fillers, PLUS a very special process that effectively “supercharges” your own blood to make those fillers much more effective. Think of it as getting an injection of a uniquely formulated “youth serum,” customized just for you.

Here’s how it works: Step One in the process entails donating a few vials of your own blood, taken from your arm (no more difficult than a routine blood test). In the second step, that blood gets placed in a machine called a centrifuge. When the blood is spun at a very high speed, it separates red blood cells from a rich golden substance called platelet rich plasma, or PRP.  Think of PRP as nature’s own miracle drug, a substance that helps stop bleeding and promotes overall healing. PRP’s properties are so beneficial that doctors often use it in surgery, and even inject to treat minor maladies such as tennis elbow and tendonitis.

Once your own PRP comes out of the centrifuge, it gets mixed with one of an injectable, such as Juvéderm or Restylane. When combined this way, PRP and the injectable become “turbocharged.” The injectable does its job by plumping up wrinkles and smoothing out lines, while the PRP stimulates collagen right down at the cellular level. What you get? A true win-win: Instant volume, a glowing complexion, and beautiful results that are longer lasting.

And because PRP also helps circulation, the “Vampire Facelift” will help your complexion look for vibrant and rosy. Glowing, rosy and youthful who knew something named after a “vampire” could deliver all that?
