What is the Vampire Facelift®?
Popular among celebrities and gaining traction worldwide, this proven skin rejuvenation technique can help you achieve multiple aesthetic goals, including:
- Revitalizing dull or gray skin tones
- Restoring shape to facial contours that have begun to droop and sag with age
- Smoothing rough skin texture that can occur as the skin ages
The Vampire Facelift® typically utilizes both dermal fillers and PRP to provide a lifting and tightening effect to the skin without any incisions or extensive downtime. During the procedure, the hyaluronic acid of dermal fillers helps provide immediate volume underneath the skin to elevate and smooth out visible signs of aging. Once a more natural, youthful shape has been created in the face, the PRP isolated from the patient’s own blood is then injected into the face.
What is PRP?
Used in several fields of medicine over several years, PRP is derived from the patient’s own blood and is used to help generate new, healthy tissues in injured or damaged areas of the body. When used as part of the Vampire Facelift®, PRP can help rejuvenate the skin by:
- Improving circulation to help restore a youthful glow to your skin
- Stimulate the production of new collagen to add structure and strength to your skin, helping it improve over time
- Producing new fatty tissue to help your facial profile maintain more youthful contours and shape
PRP is created from a small sample of the patient’s blood that is taken before treatment. The blood is then spun through a sterile centrifuge process, separating it into its individual components. The plasma, or liquid portion of the blood, is infused with more platelets than normal, which contain several growth factors. While dermal fillers provide immediate lift and shape, PRP uses the body’s own healing factors to help maintain results over time.
Is the Vampire Facelift® Safe?
Dermal fillers have proven safety profiles with a long history of safe treatment. As PRP utilizes the body’s own resources, it is easily recognized and processed without any major risks. As with all injectable treatments, slight bruising, redness, and swelling may temporarily develop at injection sites. Certain blood disorders or other contraindicating medical conditions may require further evaluation by our medical team, which will discussed during your consultation.
Results may vary, and as PRP works gradually underneath the skin, it may take two to three months before full results are visible. While visible signs of aging may return over time, your smoother, younger-looking skin can last for up to one or two years, and can be easily maintained through regular treatment and a good skincare regimen.
