Skin rejuvenation face
The idea behind plasma rich platelets treatment commonly known as vampire facelift is that the body’s natural healing power can reverse the aging process. It works by placing growth factors in the particular location where we require the skin to rejuvenate and repair itself. As such, plasma treatment involves harvesting platelets from an individual’s body and injecting them into skin areas with a problem. Usually, blood is drawn from a patient’s arm and allowed to separate. The red blood cells separate from platelet rich plasma which is rich is growth factors (proteins that heal damaged or injured skin).
PDO (Polydioxanone) is a biodegradable synthetic polymer traditionally used as sutures in surgery. PDO has been around for over three decades and used daily in hospitals for wound closure and cataract surgical procedures.
When used for aesthetic purposes it is a highly effective, safe, non-surgical technique that lifts and tightens the skin, redefines facial contours, induces collagen production and lipolysis. It is often referred to as a “non-surgical facelift”, creating a more youthful appearance.
As earlier mentioned, vampire facial treatment involves harvesting platelets from a patient’s blood and injecting it into injured skin areas thus various nicknames like Dracula Therapy and Vampire Facelift. Prior to the procedure, blood is drawn out from a patient and placed in a centrifuge to allow the platelet plasma to separate from the red blood cells. The platelet plasma (rich in growth factors) is injected into the skin (face) where it is believed to reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
Once the platelet plasma is injected, it releases growth factors causing the surrounding cells to increase in volume; one such cell is the fibroblast cell that is responsible for producing collagen. Another cell stimulated during the procedure is the pre-adipocyte cell, a cell that converts into fat cell thus filling out lines on the face. The procedure is performed around the mouth, nose, eyes, and backs of the hands as well as the knees to give the skin a radiant look.
