PRP – Vampire Facelift in Philadelphia, PA

We all want to turn back the hands of time. Looking youthful is not always easy to achieve. The surgical methods can be expensive and aren’t right for everyone, while creams and powders aren’t simply powerful enough to achieve the results that many patients desire. Luckily, the exciting new PRP therapy (known as a Vampire Facelift) is an excellent and effective alternative, and offered by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul M. Glat to the residents of Philadelphia and South Jersey.

What is the Vampire Facelift?

A Vampire Facelift is a non-surgical procedure that involves the injection of a gel-like substance made from the platelet rich plasma that is derived from your own blood. This treatment can reduce wrinkles and rejuvenate the face.

Benefits of the Vampire Facelift

There are many benefits to having a Vampire Facelift. These include:

  • smoothing out facial wrinkles
  • improve the blood flow of the skin
  • stimulates collagen production
  • thickens the skin
  • rejuvenate the complexion
  • lessened skin folds
  • improvement in clarity of skin
  • improvement in scars
  • skin will be smoother and tighter
  • color of skin will be better
  • sagging skin is eliminated
  • the amount injected is equivalent to 4 syringes full of Juvederm®, which would cost much more
  • procedure is painless
  • more affordable than surgery
  • can be used in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation products
  • no side effects and no down time

How is the Vampire Facelift Performed?

The entire procedure only takes 30 to 40 minutes. First, Dr. Glat will draw your blood and extract the platelets. These are mixed with natural fillers and reinjected into the skin. You will begin seeing results right away, but it may take a couple of weeks for the filler to settle into its final position. The results vary from patient to patient, but it generally helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles and gives skin a healthy glow.
