The Vampire Facelift® is a trademarked designer procedure that has become popular in Hollywood and many other parts of the world. If you are looking to improve the color, texture, tone and shape of your skin, the vampire facelift is for you.
The process starts with a careful assessment of your medical history and skin concerns by Dr. Charles Talakkottur, M.D. After determining if you are a candidate for this treatment, before photos are taken and then subsequently blood is taken similar to a normal laboratory blood draw. This blood is then processed in our COLA certified moderately complex laboratory in a centrifuge which spins down your blood.
We separate the blood components in 14 minutes, filtering the portion of blood which is called platelet rich plasma or PRP. The prp has a large amount of platelets(cells which help clot your blood when bleeding) and are very rich in growth factors and stem cells(cells which are currently being employed to cure diseases such as cancer). We are able to get large amounts of platelets in terms of number and concentration(our system is being used at major academic centers such as the Mayo Clinic). The prp is then reinjected into the face after being activated and in conjunction with a hyaluronic acid filler to simulate an injury which will help the body in angioneogenesis(create new blood vessels/blood flow) and also to help the body to stimulate it's own collagen to help improve the texture of the skin.
