Kim Kardashian might have made the ‘Vampire Facelift®’ famous when she posted photos of her procedure on Instagram to her more than 12 million followers. However, in Fort Lauderdale, this nonsurgical facelift has been around for many years. You might know the non-invasive procedure by one of its other names –Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift (PRP) or Liquid Facelift.
As a cosmetic and restorative dentist, I focus on balancing a client’s smile with their face. Without symmetry, any enhancement or improvement can look disproportionate to the rest of the face. To me this is similar to wearing a new dress to a gala with old work shoes and dirty hair –something just looks off.
Slow Down the Hands of Time
As we age our face loses volume. Our features lose their elasticity causing areas such as the cheeks to look hollow, and our lips to look thin and atrophied. PRP changes all that. The procedure offers men and women a natural way to restore and enhance volume to the face, neck or décolletage areas.
An Effective and Convenient Non-Invasive Procedure
The process begins with me collecting about 2 teaspoons of your blood via a simple blood draw. The collected blood is then placed inside a centrifuge, which is a device that separates the serum, platelets and white blood cells from the red blood cells. The white blood cells and platelets are collected to make up the PRP. This process usually takes less than fifteen minutes
Natural, Long Lasting Results
While the results of PRP can vary depending on the complexity, most people notice immediate improvements in the texture, coloration, and volume of their skin. It can take up to seven weeks after the procedure to see the full benefits. Results can last up to one to two year and because there is little to no downtime, most of my clients find they are able to return their everyday activities right away.
