Hey "sub-par" why don't ya' take your own counsel. Protect what "li'l brain" you have left. Place an "extra fluffy down-pillow" -- or two -- between your head and head board before your lover starts "pile driving" ya', eh... At least you will limit further damage to your noggin, eh...
He is promoting what is called "Vampire Facelift" a technique that inject patients' own purified blood plasma into wrinkles. This is a more benign filler than collagen and hyaluronic acids (Juvederm, Restylane, etc.) and other artificial fillers.
Now, just about anything injected into a wrinkle will correct it for a short time due first to increasing volume and then to healing effect. However, there has been little clinical trial done to certify that Vampire Facelift has a lasting effect. The only known data is a small study on 15 patients that saw an average 1-point improvement on the 5-point wrinkle scale at 12 weeks (3 months). Most doctors expect this effect to fade by 12 months.
That is a weak result when compared with laViv which showed a statistical significant 2-point improvement at 6 months and continuing improvement to more than a year then stabilizing for years after. The Vampire Facelift is a good competitor to fillers like Juvederm, especially for people concerned about products made from bacteria and other foreign sources but it is not a competitor for laViv, especially for people seeking a long term natural result.

Please, please, please, stop your deceptive -- "prevaricating posts about laviv", pal. It is quite disturbing to hear YOU trying to mis-lead and confuse this mssg. board with "YOUR illogical and misplaced natural" label for laviv.
There is nothing "NATURAL" about laviv, pal, or any product is grown in: "BOVINE COLLAGEN IN SOLUTION". Anyone "schooled in high school biology" knows that. Your "NATURAL" claims are deceptive. YOU actually hurt YOUR "pumpin' scheme" by insulting the intellect of YOUR audience, mes ami, eh...
Please revert to the FDA required WARNINGS for Laviv, pal. There is a very "IMPORTANT" reason the FDA requires FCSC-laviv to legally publish these "caveats" to educate potential customers; 'cause the WARNINGS mean a lot, eh...
