Why use a filler when you can use your own blood?

Yes, I’m not crazy, and yes, I know it sounds gruesome. But it’s really not.

I’ve been going on a lot about platelet rich plasma (PRP) and its amazing ability to stimulate tissue regeneration. We take a small amount of your own blood, spin it through a centrifuge, and re-inject your own plasma into your body. As plasma is an essential carrier of nutrients in your body, it helps your tissue begin to heal itself, and it keeps growing and repairing for a really long time.

Some clever clogs devised a way to use this process to give a non-surgical, non-chemical facelift. And the rest, as they say, is history!

I know, I know. That’s why you use hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, or why you get botox, or any other number of tried-and-tested ways of giving your face a bit of a lift. Trust me: this is much, much safer. HA fillers lift the skin away from the bone to restore volume and shape – but they can cause unnatural shapes as well as eye problems. Plus, they need to be re-filled a lot.

This “Vampire Facelift” – yes, it’s really called that – restores shape, improves tone and texture, and literally rejuvenates new and younger tissue. That’s because you’re using your own body’s growth hormones to give those cells a little poke. The effects of the procedure improve over the course of a few months, and can last at least 1-2 years! Even better, there isn’t the scarring that occurs with plastic surgery.

It’s difficult to explain the procedure without getting into the details of extracting blood and separating its bits, so best thing to do is give me a call and we can talk about how it might work for you. And hey – if vampire facelifts aren’t for you, I can help with other non-surgical ways to give that skin a little freshening-up.

Let’s chat.

Love, Amanda.
