The Vampire Facelift® may sound like a Halloween party game, but it’s a cosmetic treatment that can restore the tone, texture, and shape of your face to make you look younger without the need for surgery. Using platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections, Drs. Dumrong and Edward Tangchitnob at Tangchitnob MD in West Covina, can bring back the youthful appearance you desire. Not to leave the men out, the aesthetic specialists also offer the P-Shot® to improve penile health and function. For more information, call the office or schedule an appointment online.
PRP is a blood product created from your own blood that’s rich in platelets and growth factors that stimulates healing and the production of fatty tissue, blood vessels, and collagen, which is the protein that gives your skin support, strength, and flexibility.
To make the PRP, the aesthetic specialists at Tangchitnob MD take a small sample of blood from your arm and spin a portion of it in a centrifuge to separate out the specialized platelets and proteins from the liquid. The platelets and proteins are then added back to your original sample to be used for your Vampire Facelift.
The Vampire Facelift is a cosmetic treatment in which PRP is combined with a hyaluronic acid and then injected into your face to improve the look and tone of your skin.
The treatment makes you look younger by creating new healthy skin and adding volume to the right places.
After your PRP has been prepped, the aesthetic specialist applies a numbing cream to the areas being treated to minimize discomfort. First, the hyaluronic acid filler is injected into your skin in specific areas to enhance the look of your face. Then, the PRP is injected in a very precise manner to stimulate healing and growth to get the desired effect.
The entire process may take about 30 minutes.
You may notice an improvement in your skin immediately, but it takes up to two months for you to see the full effects. With the right care, including sun protection, the results of your Vampire Facelift may last up to a year or more.
