Vampire Face Lift - By Sarah Killian
As surreal as a movie, but not as gory as one would think, a vampire face lift has become an affordable and non-surgical treatment that is taking the cosmetic surgery industry by storm.
This blood injection treatment is not new by design; in fact this type of blood treatment has been used to treat certain kinds of injuries for years: sport's injuries like tennis elbow and certain knee complaints, even tendonitis.
The idea behind blood injection treatments, in which blood is taken from a patient's arm via syringe, is that blood platelets are rich in natural growth factors. These growth factors in the blood cells are extracted and processed as a kind of dermal filler. This filler is then injected into “trouble spots” on the face where wrinkles and fine lines have formed. Not only does the filler even and smooth out facial lines, but this procedure also stimulates the regeneration of collagen and connective tissues in the face. Improvements continue over a 3 to 4 month period and results can last 12 to 18 months.
Like fat grafting, which is another anti-aging cosmetic procedure that uses a person's fat cells to smooth out facial imperfections, the primary benefit to a vampire face lift or blood injection treatment is that certain reactions and side effects are greatly reduced when compared to fillers like, Restylane or Botox which are synthetic.
Another benefit is cost. Since the vampire face lift is really a series of facial injections, it's cost is insignificant when compared to the cost of a full face lift surgery.
