Vampire Facials Reston
The Vampire Facelift®
The human body’s connective tissues contain hyaluronic acid, a water-binding molecule. Hyaluronic acid contributes to the overall structure and cushioning of healthy skin and promotes communication between cells for elastin and collagen production.
A Vampire Facelift combines a dermal filler of a hyaluronic acid with blood-derived growth factors. After extraction of your blood, it is processed to separate the platelets from other blood components, and the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is then injected back into various parts of the face. PRP tells your facial cells to grow new, plumper, younger looking skin.
ABC 7 story on the Vampire facelift, featuring Dr. Rostami
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP can be used in many other ways and is currently used in the field of orthopedics, dentistry, and pain management. It’s an exciting, regenerative technology that deploys your own biochemistry to repair and heal and strengthen specific tissues. And because the PRP comes from you, there is virtually no risk of allergic reaction or intolerance. In our office we use PRP for severe dry eye syndrome, and as a topical treatment following laser skin resurfacing.
Make PRP Part of Your Laser Treatment
Directly following the a CO2, FSR, or Fraxel treatment, Dr. Rostami recommends a topical application of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), derived from your own blood, allowing fibroblasts, many types of growth factors, and stimulating factors, to penetrate your skin. This speeds the healing process and stimulates collagen synthesis for healthy cell production to repair and restore lost resilience.
