The Vampire Facial is quite an incredible treatment that has men and women raving about the results. It combines the science of hyaluronic acid fillers such as Botox, Restylane or Juvederm, with the natural component of the patient’s own blood platelets to reenergize cells and boost collagen production. By utilizing the perfect blend of filler and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), we are able to lift the skin and plump the flesh of your face and upper neck, giving the appearance of a facelift without the invasive (and costly) surgery.
Essentially, we can reshape your face to regain your youthful appearance and improve your facial contours. Sagging skin and wrinkles are reduced or eliminated, and best of all, the results are long lasting – from one year to 16 months depending on the individual. PRP Therapy has been used for decades in sports medicine and orthopedics, to help heal torn tendons, ligaments, and tissue. Now, Robert Rubin MD brings this highly advanced treatment to you for cosmetic use.
First, a small tube of your blood is drawn. Then, we do a microdermabrasion treatment to cleanse and prepare your surface skin cells (which are also facilitating an aged look and feel). Your blood is then placed into a special centrifuge that spins the blood at a rapid rate to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood.
The platelet-rich plasma that is obtained is then activated to release at least eight essential growth factors and proteins. The activated growth factors “instinctively” repair and strengthen the specific tissues where they are placed. As the platelet-rich plasma stimulates new cell growth it improves the texture and look of your skin. Your PRP is a natural, safe, effective treatment for a more youthful appearance, at a fraction of the cost of facial surgery.
Healing time is minimal and there is little or no downtime – patients can resume normal activity right after this procedure. Fine lines and wrinkles are improved, as well as skin tone and texture. Dr. Robert Rubin is highly trained and skilled in performing the Vampire Facelift, and carefully explains the procedure to each patient prior to scheduling.
