Discover the secret of the vampire lift and its rules.
Vampire lift definition
In the USA, vampire lift is a non surgical medical lifting procedure, performed by a simple injection of... blood, hence the name vampire lift.
In fact, it is not just any blood, because it is yours, which explains the absence of side reactions, toxicity or risk of rejection.
This blood is cleared of its nucleated cells (red blood cells and leukocytes) to preserve only the thrombocytes or platelets.
This PRP or platelet-rich plasma belongs to the medical category of blood products, which means that in France PRP injection is only possible as a therapeutic treatment per example.
This plasma is obtained by centrifuging the blood to eliminate white blood cells and red blood cells (responsible for the red color).
Only thrombocytes and serum are preserved.
The purpose of thrombocytes in the blood is to quickly activate the healing of a bleeding vessel, which explains their high content of growth factors. These proteins are chemical signals able to activate any stem cell depending on the tissue in which it is located. For dermal tissue, they are transformed into young fibroblasts, the skin's manufacturing plants.
This induced biosynthesis will restore hyaluronic acid (moisturizing and plumping the dermis), elastin fibers (restoring supple and elastic tissue) and collagen (which fights against skin sagging by restoring skin tonicity).
Indications: when have a Vampire Lift?
- All over the world, the rejuvenating action of the PRP injection aims to fight against the visible effects of skin aging:
- Your skin is plumped up and moisturized;
- Your complexion becomes brighter and dark circles fade;
- Wrinkles, fine lines or scars are smoothed out.
Follow a PRP facial treatment session
This medical act takes place at the Clinique des Champs Elysées New York, after a medical consultation.
It is performed on an empty stomach, without pain and without the need to fast.
The first step is a classic blood test to draw your blood (one to two tubes).
Immediately centrifuged to separate the concentrated plasma into platelets: it is a physical process, without adding any product.
The second step is performed by the doctor. He uses this sterile blood to inject it into the area to be treated, or even around it for an optimal result.
He chooses either a classic intradermal injection technique (fine needle mounted on a syringe), or a medical mesotherapy multi-needle device, which can take different forms (pen, roller or roller, stamp...), in order to cover a larger area with smaller quantities.
This treatment usually requires two to four medical appointments, spaced 4/6 weeks apart. The practitioner ends each treatment with a LED light therapy to stimulate even more the local vascularization and the metabolism of the stem cells.
PRP injection Vampire Lift results
The results are never instantly noticeable, since thrombocytes induce the transformation of stem cells into young fibroblasts. These synthesis need to be sufficiently advanced to be able to judge the effects on the dermis.
PRP injection, which is allowed in a restricted medical setting, allows the healing or reduction of acne scarring lesions.
By boosting fibroblastic synthesis, this medical injectable treatment provides aesthetic "side effects", with firmer, smoother, brighter and younger looking skin.
