The Vampire Facelift has created such a buzz around the nation that training canters have been established in Beverly Hills and Dubai.
Now Doctors can learn how to do the increasingly popular procedure called The Vampire Facelift.
Two centers that offer official training and certification have been established in Beverly Hills and in Dubai.
Although at first scoffed at due to the name, more and more patients and physicians are embracing this non-invasive cosmetic procedure, which is non-surgical and uses a small vial of the patients own blood.
"People are asking for PRP treatments and the Vampire Facelift, so I decided to look into it and now offer it as another option for non-surgical treatments." Says Dr. Jason Diamond in Beverly Hills, Ca.
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP is the key ingredient, dubbed as "fertilizer for your face".
There is a special way that the PRP is administered in conjunction with hyaluronic acid or HA, such as Juvederm or Restylane. This was invented by Dr. Charles Runels, who trademarked the procedure and carefully trains each and every provider, along with his nurse in Beverly Hills, Sylvia Silvestri RN.
It has caught on so much and generated so much interest, that they have a training center in Beverly Hills and are currently opening another one in Dubai.
A full day training course provides the doctors with hands-on learning and certification in the procedure, which takes about an hour, and has no down time for the patient.
PRP has been used in other areas of the body for years, and now has captured the aesthetic world when The Vampire Facelift bursted on the the scene about two years ago.
Since then, people thought the trendy procedure would die out, but the opposite happened, and it is more popular than ever.
