Did you know that more than 2 million Americans underwent cosmetic skin procedures during 2011? Among the most popular of these dermatology procedures were laser resurfacing treatments and vampire facelift procedures. Both procedures are chosen by individuals who are looking to reduce signs of aging, or retain a more youthful appearance.
One of the biggest advantages of facial laser resurfacing and vampire facelifts is the fact that the procedures are non invasive. This means that no incisions are made, which eliminates discomfort, bandages, and recovery time. As a result, both procedures are gaining popularity among people who want to look younger, but are reluctant to go under the knife.
In 2009, 14 percent of all cosmetic surgeries performed were laser resurfacing treatments; and 88 percent of those who received the treatment were women. The process involved in laser resurfacing treatment uses lasers to detach the molecular bonds that lead to wrinkling. Because face laser resurfacing can break down chemical bonds, laser resurfacing procedures have been used to address issues related to scars, sun damage, stretch marks, spider veins, and letigo meligna.
The objective of a vampire facelift is to smooth wrinkles by using blood drawn from the patient to create a gel like substance called platelet rich fibrin matrix. The PRFM is then injected into different areas of the face to create a balloon like inflation to smooth out wrinkles. Although much is still to be learned about the vampire facelift, recent scientific reports conclude that it can be effective.
Nobody looks forward to growing old, especially when it comes to the effects of aging on the skin. Not long ago, the only option people had to resist aging was invasive plastic surgery. However, now that there are procedures like laser resurfacing and vampire facelifts, people can regain the confidence of their youth without having to deal with the discomfort and recovery time involved with plastic surgery.
