How is the vampire facelift done?
This cutting-edge rejuvenation treatment is a quick 20-30 minute procedure. A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and placed in a sterile tube. Collected blood is spun down in a centrifuge at a pre-calculated speed for 8 to 10 minutes to separate the different components of the blood.
Red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and the plasma (the clear fluid). This plasma now contains a higher than normal number of precious platelets, nearly fivefold. The separated platelets are then activated with calcium chloride, to release more growth factors.
Local anaesthesia is given and the platelet-rich plasma is injected into the appropriate areas with very small needles.
