Enjoy a More Youthful Looking Appearance with a Vampire Facelift

Made popular by Kim Kardashian, the platelet-rich fibrin matrix — or Vampire Facelift® — is a method of using the platelets in your own blood to fill out wrinkles and give your face a more youthful, vibrant appearance. Contact us today to learn more about our world-class care.

What the Vampire Facelift Can Do for You

Vampire Facelift®
  • Fill out wrinkles
  • Give your face a more youthful appearance
  • Improve color and complexion
  • Increase radiance and glow
  • Non-surgical cosmetic treatment

How It Works

We take a vial’s worth of blood from your arm and spin it in a centrifuge in order to remove the red blood cells. What we’re left with is a yellow serum that is rich with growth factors and platelets.

We then use a very tiny needle to inject this serum into your face, just below the skin. This injection will help to stimulate the growth of new blood vessels and collagen in your face, giving your skin a lasting, healthy glow. We couple this injection with cosmetic fillers to help remove wrinkles and add volume to your face, for a natural, more youthful look.

The results take a few weeks to see but can last a year or longer.

3 Steps of the Vampire Facelift® Procedure

First, the injector uses HA fillers to create a beautiful shape. Then, the physician isolates growth factors from the patient’s blood.  When these growth factors enter the face (injected by the physician), then muti-potent stem cells become activated to grow new tissue.  This new tissue includes new collagen, new fatty tissue (for smoothness), and new blood vessels (for a healthy glow).

Step #1

Creating a Beautiful & Natural Shape

In the first part of the Vampire FaceLift® procedure, the physician uses an Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler (like Restylane or Juvederm) in a very specific way to sculpt a younger-appearing face, while still keeping the shape natural.
After creating a younger, natural shape, then the physician harvests from the woman’s own blood (hence, the name Vampire,) growth factors that her body would normally use to heal damaged tissue.
Step #2

Isolating  & Activating the Magic from Your Blood

First, the physician draws about 2 teaspoons of blood. Then, using a centrifuge, the physician isolates platelets from that blood (platelet-rich plasma or PRP) — all within about 10 minutes in the office!
Then, those platelets are “activated”  to cause the release from the platelets of at least 8 growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue.
These growth factors work like magic to cause increased collagen & new blood flow. To rejuvenate new skin, these growth factors must be put back into your face.
Step #3

Injecting the Magic into Your Face

Using numbing cream and a very small needle (with little to no pain), the physician injects the woman’s own growth factors back into her face in a very innovative way.
These growth factors then activate multi-potent stem cells already in the skin, tricking them into “thinking” there’s been an injury and new, younger tissue should be generated.

Why Choose the Vampire Facelift?

There are many available methods to rejuvenate the face – here’s what makes those other options inferior to the Vampire Facelift treatment:

  • Cosmetic surgery can remove excess skin and make the person appear younger. A surgical facelift may be more than what’s needed for some people, especially when loss of shape without extra skin is the main problem.
  • Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, like Juvederm and Restylane, lift the skin away from the bone to restore youthful volume and shape. But HA fillers can cause problems near the eye. Additionally, the injector of HA fillers can shape a wrinkle and create an unnatural shape. The HA fillers do little to improve skin tone and texture.
  • Skin creams and facial peels by a skilled aesthetician can be very helpful, but sometimes are just not strong enough to rejuvenate the tissue adequately.
  • Retin A and other prescription medications (like Hydraquinone) also improve texture and should be carefully prescribed in a way that gives benefit without adverse effects. However, the results can be slow and achieve lesser results than what’s needed.

Unlike most procedures, the Vampire Facelift offers a way of both restoring shape, and improving tone and texture, as well as literally rejuvenating new and younger tissue! 

Common Questions about Vampire FaceLift

    • What is a Vampire Facelift Injection?
      A Vampire Facelift is the popular term for using Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for facial cosmetic improvement. Blood is taken from your arm and put into a centrifuge to remove the PRP, which is then injected back into your face.
    • How long until I see improvements after a Vampire Facelift?

      Most clients see results over the course of a 5-6 weeks. Immediately after the PRP injections you will see a slight swelling caused by the procedure, which subsides over the course of a few days.

    • Does Vampire Facelift contain stem cells?

      While there are naturally some stem cells in your plasma, the number is not very significant. More important are the growth factors, which include: PDGF (Platelet Derived Growth Factor), TGF-beta (Transforming Growth Factor Beta), FGF (Fibroblast Growth Factor), IGFs (Insulin-like Growth Factor types 1 and 2), VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor), EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor), Interleukins, KGF (Keratinocyte Growth Factor), and connective tissue growth factor.
