SunMed offers the in-office nonsurgical and breakthrough treatment known as The Vampire FaceLift Procedure in Miami. This procedure combines the science of hyaluronic acid fillers (i.e. Juvederm) and platelet rich plasma or (PRP).
Similar to the medical Microinfusion with PRP, commonly known as the “Vampire Facial,”made famous by Kim Kardashian, is a highly effective treatment. What is a Vampire Facelift? This treatment is an anti-aging skin procedure where a registered practitioner inject your own extracted blood back into your face to increase collagen production. Those with needle phobia, be warned!
There are two parts to the procedure:
The first part utilizes HA fillers to begin sculpting specific areas of the face. The HA filler acts like a sponge that holds water in the face providing a basic shape. This initial injection of HA is the precursor to the ultimate desired form.
The second is the polishing and refining step, the utilization of your body’s own natural healing process. A sample of your blood is obtained with a simple blood draw. Utilizing this centrifuge, the growth factors in platelet rich plasma (PRP) are extracted from that blood sample and injected into specific areas of the face. This step of the sculpting process ultimately contributes to the appearance of a younger version of you.
Over the past several weeks, we have begun to share great stories from our patients. Today, we share Miriam De Da Silva’s experience receiving her “Vampire Facelift” conducted by our team here in Miami.
Read Miriam’s review of her procedure. The following is the dialogue from our conversation.
Q: Are you a prior patient of Alex Tirado?
A: It was my first time here with Mr. Tirado and the team, but he was highly recommended by my friends.
Q: Have you received this procedure before?
A: This was my first time receiving this procedure.
Q: What were you doing to maintain your skin before the procedure
A: Prior to the treatment, I have always been obsessed with skin and taking care of it with various skin products day and night. Before and after the procedure, I have maintained the same skin regimen: Estee Lauder moisturizing skin creams and regular use of sunscreen.
Q: What did you think the procedure would be like before having it?
A: I knew I would see results quick as this is no ordinary “facial.” I wanted to find something that could prolong surgery and this was the best option for me and my needs.
Q: Did the procedure hurt? On a scale of 1-10, how was the pain?
A: 1 on a scale of 1-10. 1 because you can feel it, but it does not hurt.
Q: How long did it take roughly?
A: It was not long, but not quick. About an hour I would say.
Q: How did you feel after the procedure? How did you look?
A: After the procedure, I felt a little swelling, but nothing that caused me concern. On the 3rd day, my skin was completely back to normal regarding the swelling. I could see the results immediately after the treatment. I can tell there was a boost in my skin.
Q: After the procedure, what are you doing to maintain the results?
A: I am doing the same as I was before, Estee Lauder moisturizing skin creams and regular use of sunscreen. Nothing specially for this type of procedure, but just making sure I maintain the results with proper care.
Q: Will you recommend to friends?
A: Of course! I have already recommended to my friends.
Q: What did you think of Alex Tirado and the staff. Did you feel comfortable before, during, and after the procedure?
A: The team was was very kind and gentle to me.
Q: How was your overall experience with the SunMed and will you return?
A: My experience was amazing and I felt extremely comfortable throughout the procedure. I recommend all of their services and the results last a long time.
Bottom line – this procedure is one of the smartest decisions you can make to refine your skin and boost collagen production without having to go under the knife.
