Only providers listed on this site have been made privy to the trade secrets of how the three sciences discussed above are combined in a specific way.
What is a Vampire Facelift?
The Vampire Facelift is a state-of-the-art technology that can help patients improve facial volume, eliminate wrinkles, and achieve a more youthful appearance, all through a series of simple injectable treatments. A combination of both dermal fillers and the patient’s own platelet rich plasma, or PRP cells are utilized during treatment, stimulating the body’s natural healing process and infusing the face with extra volume, fullness, and definition.
The skin color changes because of less underlying blood flow.
The shape becomes collapsed and droopy as muscle and collagen decrease.
The texture of the skin becomes less smooth. As a result, the person looks worn, tired, or droopy. The lively, rosy hue skin color fades to a dull gray.
Treatments Pro & Con
Balancing Your Decision
With so many ways to improve the face and with countless products and procedures available, why look for a better way?
Although there can be a place for a surgical facelift, such procedures are not necessarily a panacea or cure-all to the concerns of the aging face. Cosmetic surgery when needed can remove excess skin and make the person appear younger. However, a surgical facelift can actually contribute to a face collapse as the skin stretches tighter against the bone making the person look skeletonized.
With hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, the face is truly lifted away from the bone and youthful volume can be restored to a beautiful shape. With that in mind, the HA fillers should not be used around specific areas near the eye. Furthermore, the injector must be careful to avoid creating a shape that looks foreign to the person’s face or even foreign to this planet. Also, HA fillers are not extremely effective for improving skin tone and texture.

Is The Vampire FaceLift Procedure Right For You?
The procedure may be too much for some and not enough for others, but you don’t need to wonder. Simply contact us and we can discuss the procedure with you in detail. We can then arrange a cosmetic evaluation based upon our discussion.
Vampire FaceLift Procedure
Creating The Shape
The first part of the Vampire FaceLift Procedure consists of utilizing HA fillers to begin sculpting specific areas of the face. The glycosaminoglycans (what an HA filler replaces) act like a sponge that holds water in the face providing a basic shape. This initial injection of HA is the precursor to the ultimate desired form.
Next come the polishing and refining step of the sculpting process which ultimately contributes to the appearance of a younger version of you.
Creating Platelet-Rich Plasma
From You To You
Within a matter of minutes, your practitioner can create PRP, an activator of the Vampire FaceLift? Procedure?.
- First: the practitioner draws a similar amount of blood required for a basic lab test.
- Second: the practitioner places the blood into a centrifuge and spins the blood at a very rapid rate to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood.
- Third: The platelets are activated by using one of two methods that are natural to your body. This activation of platelets is the final step in producing your very own platelet-rich plasma. The best way to visualize PRP is to remember the yellow that surrounded the scab you had when you fell on your knee as a child. The thickening of the serum to form that yellow material holds specific growth factors in place that call PRP to the area and activates them to create new skin.
Activating 8 Growth Factors
Platelet-rich plasma is similar to HA fillers because it can be injected to sculpt the face. But, here’s the best part: not only does the PRP cause an increase in the volume, PRP contains at least 8 growth factors that will over a long period of time, continually work like a rejuvenating agent.
By activating these growth factors, all 3 parts of the aging process improve:
- The skin color becomes a younger color because of new blood vessel formation.
- New collagen formations in the dermis lift the face back to a more youthful shape.
- Because the growth factors are working to build a new dermis, the epidermis (the outermost layers of your skin) appears smoother.
The Science Of Pure Beauty
The third and final part of the Vampire FaceLift Procedure implements the science and mathematics of pure beauty.
As far back as Leonardo da Vinci up until the present day, physicians, scientists and artists have worked to define what shapes, contours, and proportions make a face more beautiful.
The challenge becomes how to take a face and bring out that which is beautiful, without creating a shape that appears unnatural. In the art and science of pure beauty, millimeters are miles. Therefore, the physician employs the ideas of artists and scientists who have deeply studied beauty when considering where and how much HA filler and growth factor to apply. Although this third component is the most difficult, it is to be

What is the Procedure Like?
Before treatment begins, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient. This blood is then carefully processed through a centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich plasma within it. Specifically, the goal is to isolate the platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) from the blood.
Within the body, platelets work to help heal wounds and encourage the healthy growth and regeneration of tissues. This component of the blood contains many growth factors that can help rejuvenate the skin. The platelet-rich rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) isolated during treatment contains an extremely high concentration of healing growth factors. While the PRP is being prepared and isolated, the patient’s skin is cleansed and prepped for treatment. The PRFM cells are then strategically injected into the face, along with dermal fillers.
What Can I Expect from Treatment?
Each treatment usually takes less than 30 minutes to complete and brings patients little to no downtime. While redness, swelling, and bruising after treatment is common, this usually subsides within a few days of receiving treatment.
Following a Vampire Facelift, patients will gradually begin to see smoother, healthier-looking skin with fewer wrinkles and fine lines in about three to four weeks. Typically, three treatments are recommended, each spaced between one and two months apart, to achieve the best results.
