Vampire Facelift, is considered a new technique in dermatology to battle the loss of collagen due to aging and UV damage. It is a type of natural therapy that can revitalize your facial skin and restore its youthful radiance.
The procedure takes about 30 minutes and requires a blood draw, which is purified and isolated before being injected into the treatment area. It contains highly activated growth factors from platelets, which play a key role in blood vessel and wound recovery. When used either alone through direct injection into lines and wrinkles on the face, or combined with other modalities such as micro-needling or laser, it can speed healing and improve the appearance of the skin.
What is Vampire Facelift?
Vampire facelift, sometimes called autologous plasma, is a concentrated serum derived from your own blood. To make this serum, your blood is drawn from your arm and then spun in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets and other components that stimulate cell growth. When injected, the growth factors in PRP boost your body’s natural process of cell renewal. This process is sometimes called regenerative therapy.
What is a Vampire Facelift?
This uses the technique of micro-needling to deliver growth factors to the deeper layers of your skin. Microneedling is a process in which microneedles are rolled across the face to create tiny puncture wounds. Microneedling improves the appearance of the skin on its own. When PRP is applied together with micro-needling, the results are stunning — your skin will look smoother, signs of aging will diminish, and your face will glow with a youthful radiance.
What are the benefits of a vampire facelift?
Because growth factors stimulate the production of collagen and other proteins within skin cells, this facial offers many benefits, including:
- Smoothing wrinkles and fine lines
- Improving the appearance of scars, sun damage, and dark spots
- Improving your skin’s fullness and elasticity
- Brightening your overall complexion
Growth factors can also be injected into hair follicles to stimulate regrowth for natural hair restoration.
Am I a candidate for this facial?
If you’re in generally good health, you should be a candidate for Vampire Facelift treatments. Regenerative therapy might not be right for you if you have certain medical conditions that affect your blood, including:
- Hepatitis C
- Any type of blood cancer
- HIV or AIDS
If you have a cardiovascular condition that requires you to take a blood-thinning medication, you’re probably not a candidate for this therapy.
How many treatments will I need?
Just one Vampire Facelift treatment will improve signs of aging and enhance the appearance of your skin. Typically, a series of three treatments is recommended to achieve optimal cell renewal for maximum rejuvenation.
How long will my results last?
Results can last up to 18 months. Following your treatment, it could take 2-4 weeks to see the full results.
