The Real Vampire Facial
In 2011 it was rumoured that superstar actress Angelina Jolie had received Platelet Rich Plasma (Preventative Ageing therapy) injections in her face to boost collagen and suddenly everyone wanted to know about this new treatment!
Preventative Ageing therapy is now a well-established cosmetic treatment and has been referred to in the past as either the ‘Dracula or Vampire Treatment’, but with advances in the technology using the Angel® blood separation system it is now readily referred to as ‘The Angel Lift’ and is often combined with laser skin resurfacing to achieve truly spectacular skin rejuvenation.
The Angel® system uses your own blood which contains concentrated platelets that are rich in essential growth factors that stimulate tissue repair and collagen formation waging war on wrinkles and damaged skin.
Why is the Angel® System Considered to be the Best?
A platelet concentration level of 3-4x is required to achieve a result with Preventative Ageing therapy. The state-of-the-art Angel® system processes a measured amount of blood and yields a platelet concentration which is titrated to meet this gold standard requirement, which many other Preventative Ageing therapy systems simply cannot achieve. The Angel® system is also a totally closed, sterile hospital system and, as the treatment is only performed by qualified doctors who are specifically trained in this technique, so you can be assured of receiving a very high quality and clinically safe procedure.
To achieve the optimum result, we often combine Preventative Ageing therapy treatments with a single Laser or RF Treatment to improve the look of the skin. Other benefits of the Preventative Ageing therapy therapy are that the effects are longer term if a course of 2-3 treatments is undertaken over an 18 month time period. There is little risk of skin problems such as changes in the pigment and your friends and family will comment on how well you are looking!
If they enquire what your secret is just say that you have an ‘Angel Glow’.
‘The angel Lift’
At SKYN® we use the Angel Preventative Ageing therapy system that yields the highest level of Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma available in this medical field today. Real collagen rejuvenation is achieved by stimulating your skin’s stem cells to regenerate the collagen and elastin naturally and at the same time removing damaged cells. The Angel Preventative Ageing therapy System yields platelets at such a level it will harness your natural healing processes to release growth factors and stem cells known to stimulate and regulate cell growth and the formation of new connective tissue.
The Angel Lift’, which, when combined with secondary procedures such as laser skin resurfacing, can achieve outstanding rejuvenation.
Preventative Ageing therapy therapy draws on a patient’s own blood, using it to generate thicker, smoother and more supple skin in areas such as the face and neck, décolletage and hands, resulting in fewer lines and wrinkles. During the procedure, blood is taken from the patient, spun in a centrifuge to extract the platelets, before being reinjected into the treatment area. There, the activated platelets release growth factors, which facilitate cell growth, the formation of blood capillaries and, most importantly, the building of new collagen.
What areas can be treated?
Angel Preventative Ageing therapy can be used on the face, neck, hands and all over the body with excellent results: skin is re-plumped and rejuvenated; fine lines and wrinkles are reduced and skin contours are redefined to create a fresh, radiant bloom.
