Do you suffer from wrinkles, acne scars, or extreme bags under your eyelids? As we get older, our skin naturally ages causing some of these unwanted conditions to occur. We all want to look and feel our best, and some people will go to extreme measures to treat these annoying conditions. Clinicians believe there may potentially be a new form of treatment to reverse the effects of wrinkles, acne scars, and excess skin on the face. This treatment is known as the “vampire face lift”.
In this procedure, your blood will be drawn and then will be placed in a centrifuge for 15 minutes. The centrifuge is designed to separate the components of your blood. The component of blood that is responsible for regenerating tissue cells is called platelet rich plasma or prp. Dr. Jeffery Caruth of Plano Aesthetics states,” Platelets signal to other cells in the body, calling them to repair and rejuvenate the area of concern.” The prp is then injected in the areas of the body to hopefully improve the condition of your face. The blood comes from your own body so there is no foreign substance being injected into your body.. Physicians say that this is a natural way to kick start and accelerate the normal healing response of the body. You never know, this treatment may become the standard of care for these unattractive medical conditions.
