Does your skin feel worn, tired and dull?
The Vampire Facelift® is Calgary’s leading way to revitalize your look, giving you younger, more vibrant skin without downtime or surgery. Using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections and a small amount of filler, the procedure promotes skin rejuvenation and corrects the shape, texture, and colour of the skin.
PRP is a natural product created from your own body. A small amount of your blood is drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube that is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. Red and white blood cells are separated from the platelets and the plasma (the clear fluid). This plasma now contains a higher than normal number of platelets and is called platelet rich plasma, or PRP. This portion is rich in millions of growth factors that can work unopposed to stimulate your stem cells and rebuild the damaged areas of concern. The PRP improves texture by increasing collagen production. Also, the PRP both causes the multiplication and the enlargement of fat cells that lie just beneath the surface of the dermis. This soft pad of fat causes a smoothing and roundness that looks younger and healthier. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles creating smoother skin texture and tone. When combined with a small amount of Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Dr. Mitchell can correct shape while the PRP can improve tone & texture by literally rejuvenating new tissue.
