A “vampire lift” is a so-called PRP treatment – a therapy involving the patient’s own blood.
Administering high dosages of growth factors produced by the body stimulates cell renewal, which helps the skin to gain volume and become visibly vitalised and rejuvenated. Small wrinkles disappear and the contours appear softer.
PRP self-blood therapy (vampire lift) is a very effective method for skin regeneration and tightening without surgery. From the age of 25, the skin cells no longer divide as quickly. Dead cells are no longer replaced properly and the powers of self-healing decrease accordingly. The face loses volume, wrinkles become deeper, wounds take longer to heal, and more hair falls out. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. This is a concentrated blood plasma (without red blood cells) boasting an enormous concentration of growth factors. These growth factors are responsible for cell regeneration.
The blood is taken from a vein in the patient’s arm. A special procedure is used to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. This plasma is then applied locally, where it has been scientifically tested and proven to lead to skin regeneration with the formation of collagen and elastin. The skin becomes thicker, more elastic, firmer and smoother, and there are no risks involved. In an ideal scenario, this method is combined with medical needling and mesotherapy with the body’s own plasma and a vitamin A serum. The combination of these procedures maximises the body’s own cell regeneration. The procedure is painless, as the skin is treated with a high-dose anaesthetic cream.
Local anaesthetic upon request
Cooling the treated area
RECOMMENCE SOCIAL ACTIVITIES
After one day
Face (especially lower eyelids / dark eye rings) • Nasolabial folds • Forehead • Cheeks • Eye region • Neck • Décolleté • Scalp (in the case of hair loss)
Do not take any aspirin or other blood-thinning medication 14 days prior to the therapy.
On the day of treatment, blood is taken from your veins. A special procedure is used to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. Please note: Not all centrifuges are suitable for preparing PRP for the face area. We use devices that have been scientifically approved and tested for this specific purpose.
The highly concentrated plasma that has been obtained is then administered in the areas to be treated by way of mesotherapy under/into the skin with a thin cannula. The PRP treatment generally needs to be repeated 2-3 times at 3-month intervals for optimum results. Please note that PRP treatment is not possible for patients suffering from diseases transmitted by blood. Unfortunately, PRP treatment is also not possible for patients suffering from skin diseases such as neurodermatitis and psoriasis.
The procedure lasts around 20 minutes. Immediately afterwards, the affected areas must be gently cooled and compressed. In the lower lid area, tapes are applied and these need to be worn for 24 hours.
Localised redness and swelling generally occurs in the treatment area. This disappears within 3-7 days.
The skin looks fresh and younger in the first few weeks after the procedure. The long-term results can be seen after 6-12 weeks. In the case of PRP treatment, it is usually possible to return to normal life within 1-3 days.
There are hardly any risks. There is not a single known case in which wrinkles have worsened after PRP treatment. However, in order to achieve good long-term results, the treatment must be repeated every 12 to 24 months.
In theory, PRP therapy can be combined with any skin-rejuvenating treatment. We can draw up a personalised treatment plan for you during a detailed consultation.
