Everyone wants it, a young, fresh complexion, without aesthetic flaws. But surgery to remove unsightly skin changes on the face scares off many people. A good alternative is vampire lifting, also known as “PRP therapy”. PRP therapy is a risk-free form of skin structure improvement and wrinkle treatment without surgery. Prepared autologous blood is used to gently regenerate the skin areas. Accordingly, the risk of intolerance or allergies can be excluded. In our practices in Frankfurt and Fulda, we will be happy to advise you on the options for PRP treatment.
PRP, also known as platelet-rich plasma, is concentrated blood plasma. Human blood is separated from its other components, in this case the red blood cells. PRP has an above-average concentration of growth factors, platelets, white blood cells and proteins. The technique for processing the blood plasma ultimately depends on the level of the concentrated platelets. Typically, these are between 40-90 percent concentrated platelets. However, the effectiveness of the blood plasma is not dependent on the PRP dosage. The total number of platelets is more important here.
The blood plasma has a high proportion of regenerating proteins, many platelets and various growth factors. Collagen production is stimulated by these growth factors. The improved complexion looks fresh, firm and natural. Autologous blood therapy can also be compared to a hyaluronic acid treatment, since hyaluron also stimulates collagen production due to its body’s own substances. The only difference in the therapies is that vampire lifting does not use fillers to inject strong wrinkles.
Before the plasma therapy, a detailed consultation with the patient is carried out. It explains all the risks and side effects. A treatment plan is also drawn up. This is crucial to take all personal wishes into account. Another important aspect that should not be missing in the consultation is medication.
At least 7 days before lifting, medications such as Voltaren, pain relievers, rheumatism drugs and aspirin should no longer be taken. Otherwise, the vitality of the platelets could suffer. The total duration of the vampire lifting is approximately 1 hour. The treatment is divided into two steps: First, blood is drawn from the patient, centrifuged and then the plasma liquid is injected. A special anesthetic cream is used to numb the skin areas. Anesthesia is not necessary.
At the start of the treatment, the patient’s own blood is drawn and prepared for injection. To do this, the platelets and plasma are separated from the remaining components. The resulting plasma liquid may also be enriched with hyaluronic acid, vitamins etc. and injected into specially selected skin areas with special needles. These ensure a better distribution of the liquid.
The skin is still red after the treatment. Cooling the treated skin area can avoid bruising and swelling. The patient should leave his face completely in peace 24 hours later, also do not wash or apply cream. In principle, no sport should be practiced in the first few days and visits to the solarium and sauna should be avoided. Acidic cosmetics and face masks are also taboo. The patient receives detailed information on the correct behavior after treatment.
There is no age limit for plasma lifting. It is therefore suitable for every age group and skin type. PRP treatment is recommended for people who want to improve their skin naturally and without surgery. Even with sensitive skin there is no risk of intolerance, since the use of synthetic active substances does not occur if only plasma is added without the addition of vitamins etc.
Only existing diseases such as blood clotting and circulatory disorders can be an exclusion criterion for treatment. It is decided after a thorough examination whether the autologous blood therapy can still be carried out or not. In aesthetic medicine, PRP therapy is used to improve skin structure, wrinkle treatment and skin rejuvenation. Facial wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and light wrinkles can be smoothed out.
In order to break down the costs for a vampire lifting, decisions must always be made individually from patient to patient. The scope of treatment is crucial. Basically, three treatments take place at shorter intervals at the beginning. Later, the procedure can be repeated once a year. In our practices in Frankfurt and Fulda, we calculate the prices according to an appropriate price-performance ratio. A cost calculation is discussed with each patient in a consultation.
