Do You Show These 3 Signs of Aging?
- Is your skin losing its color because of less blood flow?
- Do you feel the shape of your face has become collapsed and droopy because of a decrees in muscle collagen?
- Is the texture of your skin becomes less smooth. As a result, you are constantly looking "worn", or "tired" or "droopy".
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions then The Vampire Facelift is for you!
Dr. Otaigbe understands that cosmetic surgery can remove excess skin and make the person appear younger. However, a surgical facelift can be more than what's needed for some people (especially when loss of shape without extra skin is the main problem). We at Radiant Reflections Weight Loss Clinic & Medspa in Hattiesburg strive to give women their desired aesthetic results without taking drastic measures.
What is the Vampire Facelift?
The Vampire facelift became an extraordinary sensation the moment that a celebrity-Kim Kardashian- posted a photo of her face covered in her own blood in order to rejuvenate her skin. The Vampire facelift is simply a term used to describe and distinguish a facelift procedure that is non-surgical and non-toxic. Dr. Otaigbe at Radiant Radiant Reflections Weight Loss Clinic & Medspa in Hattiesburg has been trained by the pioneer of this procedure to properly and effectively execute this cutting edge, minimally-invasive technique. The Vampire Facelift consists of Dr. Otaigbe re-injecting the platelet rich plasma found in the patient’s blood into their face. The platelets in the plasma stimulate the growth of collagen cells and tighten soft tissues in the face that might have lost their elasticity due to endless factors including gravity or aging. The effects of this platelet rich plasma (or PRP) can have incredible effects without the addition of any toxins or chemicals in the skin, such as those used in other procedures. It is a true medical advancement to have found a way to perform a facelift without surgery.
