If you want to really get into the Halloween spirit this year, then Dr. Jack Bertolino has the perfect solution for you: the vampire facelift. Here at our office, we use platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to help our patients with a variety of different issues like hair loss, urinary incontinence, erectile dysfunction, and sexual dissatisfaction in women. But, we also use PRP for cosmetic issues as well. So, how can the vampire facelift help you get the skin of your dreams? Let’s take a closer look.
How Does It Work?
The spookiest part about PRP is that we have to actually extract the platelet-rich plasma for your blood by spinning it through a machine called Pure Spin Centrifuge which has an 87.7% platelet recovery which is way higher than other systems. Once we have extracted the plasma, we will then inject it into your skin on its own or we will combine it with microneedling. Typically, we encourage patients to combine it with microneedling because it allows the PRP to penetrate into the skin and pores more easily.
What Is It Used For?
When we use PRP for cosmetic purposes, we can help patients who have issues with:
- Stretch Marks
- Acne Scars
- Damaged Skin
- Fine Lines
- Dark Circles Under the Eyes
- Tightening and Toning
- Fat Grafting After Liposculpture
As you can see, there is no better time of year than now to come into our office to get a vampire facelift. By combining PRP with microneedling, we can help patients significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks, and just help enhance their appearance overall.
