VAMPIRE LIFT: Autologous blood for anti-wrinkle treatment

There are numerous approaches to and methods of anti-wrinkle treatment in order to delay the visual effects of the aging process and combat wrinkles. Their application generally depends on the condition of the skin and the depth of the wrinkles. In her practice in downtown Berlin, Dr. Frauke Del Bello offers anti-wrinkle injections with Botox and hyaluronic acid as well as a procedure known as vampire lift.

AUTOLOGOUS BLOOD FOR CELL RENEWAL

A vampire lift, also referred to as PRP autologous blood therapy, is perfect for wrinkle treatment and skin rejuvenation because the plasma injected during the treatment is extracted from autologous blood and the serum contains an extremely high number of blood platelets (thrombocytes) with growth factors. That makes the serum highly compatible, and there are no side effects or allergic reactions to the body’s own substances.
The vampire lift can be used to smoothen and bolster wrinkles in the face, on the neck, in the cleavage area and on the hands. The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from autologous blood is injected into the dermis where it unfolds its full effect. The dermis of the skin contains elastic fibers. During the natural aging process, these fibers steadily lose tension, making the skin appear saggy. This is where the PRP autologous blood serum of the vampire lift comes into play. The bio stimulation triggers the new formation of collagen and the regeneration of the connective tissue. As a result, the skin will appear much younger, more vital and tighter. The skin rejuvenation effect can be further reinforced through the addition of hyaluronic acid to the autologous blood plasma. Just ask us and we will gladly recommend the best treatment method for you based on the condition of your skin and the depth of your wrinkles.

EXTRACTING PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP)

For the extraction of the plasma, Dr. Del Bello will draw a bit of blood from the patient prior to the actual treatment. From this blood sample, a blood processing procedure will extract the thrombocytes and growth factors which are crucial for the treatment. As the plasma is made of autologous substances, it is extremely compliant, triggering neither side effects nor allergic reactions. Once it has been injected into the skin, the serum will stimulate the body’s natural processes of self-healing and cell regeneration, resulting in an overall improved, radiant skin structure.

COMBINATION OF VAMPIRE LIFT WITH OTHER TREATMENTS

To reinforce the effect, the serum of the vampire lift can be supplemented with hyaluronic acid in order to further intensify the effect of a revitalized, smoother and bolstered skin structure. Furthermore, hyaluronic acid supplies moisture to the skin and helps to bind this moisture.
