Dr Allen Rezai, Founder and Lead Surgeon of Elite Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Group of Dubai Healthcare City was recently interviewed by Gulf News concerning the “Vampire Face Lift” procedure which they recently introduced to Middle Eastern patients.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Skin Rejuvenation Therapy, commonly referred to as “Vampire” or “True Blood” Skin Rejuvenation, is the latest natural approach in anti-ageing facial and body rejuvenation, using the patient’s own blood cells, explained Dr Rezai.
However some salons and spas in Dubai were soon also to start offering this treatment, which was quickly followed by a ban on such activities by the Dubai Health Authority. However, the ban does not apply to all clinics in the Emirates, and recognised medical practitioners within DHCC are still able to offer it.
Since it introduction in Dubai in 2013 at the Elite Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery clinic, the procedure has attracted patients who are not ready to go under the knife but are looking to iron out fine lines. “During the last year, we have treated over 350 patients at the clinic.” Dr Rezai pointed out that 99 per cent of their patients usually see results between 3-6 weeks following their initial treatment. “The skin continues to improve gradually over the next 3?6 months with improvement in texture, tone and the overall rejuvenation of the skin.”
