Anti-Aging Treatment Q & A

Alex Ferro, MD

What is a Vampire Facial® or Vampire Facelift®?

The Vampire Facial® or facelift uses Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) taken from the patient’s own blood to create a more youthful appearance. Dr. Ferro extracts blood from under the patient’s arms and spins it in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from red and white blood cells. He then injects the concentrated plasma into the patient’s face to bring about a more youthful appearance.

How does PRP therapy differ from other injections or fillers?

PRP therapy uses centrifuged platelet-rich plasma, which Dr. Ferro injects directly into the patient’s skin. This allows for total rejuvenation through collagen growth, as opposed to the individual fine line or wrinkle improvement done using hyaluronic acid fillers. PRP therapy can fill the areas that otherwise can’t be reached using other fillers or injectable.

What are the benefits of testosterone replacement therapy?

Testosterone replacement therapy has been shown to improve energy levels and sex drive. It can also provide an elevated mood, increased muscle mass, improved bone density, and insulin sensitivity in some men and women.

What are nutraceuticals?

Nutraceuticals refers to any product derived from food sources, which can be used to promote well-being, prevent malignant developments, and control symptoms from certain conditions. Nutraceuticals can be classified as follows: dietary supplements, functional food, medicinal food, and pharmaceuticals.

What are the benefits of micro-needling?

Micro-needling can be used on all skin types and any area of the face including the fragile skin around eyes, mouth, and neck. It stimulates circulation and collagen production, which improves skin texture; reduces the appearance of wrinkles; and stimulates tissue regeneration.

What conditions can be improved with micro-needling?

Micro-needling is a less painful process than needle injections and requires moderately less down time. It also allows for PRP to completely penetrate more planes of the skin unlike other injectables, which are isolated to one area. Micro-needling can improve:

  • Mild or moderate scars; acne scarring
  • Fine wrinkles and lines and wrinkles
  • Loose or lax skin
  • Skin texture and pore size
  • Stretch marks
