Talking today about one of the more common questions I get, which is, “what is your favorite aesthetic procedure?” That’s a no-brainer for me. I love performing the Vampire Facelift! The immediate results are so impressive, I just love to see the quick results plus the gradual improvement over the next few months as the anti-aging effects of the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) start to kick in. Especially if the client has just completed a treatment package of Fractora (which is radio-frequency, micro-needling), then the results can be very remarkable. Very natural appearing improvement, almost like someone went back in time. That’s my favorite method for restoring the appearance of youth, because it really doesn’t appear artificial or fake.
I am a believer in PRP, which is spinning your blood and isolating the healing elements (the platelets) and then putting them where you want healing to occur. There is some data regarding the orthopedic benefits of PRP in the literature. My first experience in PRP, as I have shared on some of our videos, was injecting my shoulder after cortisone had failed. Since starting to use PRP with the Vampire Facelift, we have also begun using it here for knee pain, shoulder pain, tennis elbow, etc.
I’ve been very impressed with the results.
Thanks for reading our blog, stay tuned for our next post!
