When most patients think about facelifts, they are considering the invasive surgeries that require weeks of recovery and often leave lifelong scars. What these individuals might not realize is that they could achieve similar results without the need for any incisions whatsoever. The Vampire FaceLift® is a revolutionary treatment that triggers your body’s healing process so you can look younger.
The Basics of a Vampire FaceLift®
Your body actually contains a number of unique substances that have the potential to minimize the signs of aging. Throughout your lifetime, your blood sends small platelets all over your body to repair other cells that have been damaged. After years of research, doctors have found that a concentration of these platelets can actually stimulate the healing process when injected directly into the skin. This concentration is known as platelet rich plasma (PRP).
During a Vampire FaceLift®, our doctor will use a small dose of your own blood to concentrate your platelets into PRP. The prepared serum is injected into various areas throughout your face following injections with a hyaluronic acid filler. The goal of this procedure is to reduce wrinkles, tone the skin and create an overall younger appearance.

There is also no recovery period and no need to make any incisions in your face, forehead or neck. Most patients can resume their normal activities after their appointment.
A Look at Your Appointment
We will first need to carry out a full medical screening. This allows us to make sure you do not have any medical issues that could affect the treatment. Once you have been cleared, the procedure can be carried out.
We begin by taking a small amount of blood. A centrifuge is then used to separate the platelets from the rest of the cells in your blood to create PRP. The amount of PRP and filler you will receive depends on a variety of factors, including your age, the state of your skin and your cosmetic goals. Many patients require only a single treatment session. The results can last for up to one year.
