“True Blood” Skin Rejuvenation is a relatively new concept in the US. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) with natural growth factors and stem cell markers has been very popular for skin rejuvenation in Europe. However, it is still little known in the US. Dr. Ceydeli adapted this procedure to his practice, and he is currently the only plastic surgeon in Northwest Florida, and one of the very few in the entire state to offer this procedure.
“True Blood” Skin Rejuvenation is also known as the “Dracula Skin Treatment” or “Vampire Facelift” and uses your own blood to rejuvenate your skin. There are no chemicals or artificial substances involved with this procedure, so there are no risks involved.
Your own blood is collected (60 cc – like giving blood for lab tests), and then the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) portion of this blood is separated using a special centrifuge. The PRP portion of your blood contains all the natural growth factors, and stem cell markers your body produces.
Approximately 10 cc of PRP is obtained from 60 cc of your blood, and then this nutrient-rich PRP is injected back to your skin using a very thin needle. The injected growth factors and stem cell markers act as stimulants to your own damaged skin cells, and skin starts repairing itself and producing more collagen.
This results in fewer wrinkles, more facial volume, and overall healthier, smoother skin.
This procedure is different from all the other soft tissue fillers on the market (Juvaderm, Restylane, Radiesse, etc.). Unlike those fillers, “True Blood” is a natural filler. The results are not immediately obvious as with the other fillers, since injected growth factors and stem cells take time to stimulate and vitalize your own skin cells. Your own skin then starts repairing itself and producing collagen to add volume to your face. The results may not be dramatic overnight, however unlike with other fillers, the results are natural and permanent. “True Blood” natural filler is also the only one that can be injected under eye area. Since it is all natural, it causes no bumpiness and can correct the fine wrinkles usually seen in that area.
