What Is A Vampire Facelift?

Vampire Facelifts are the latest trend in the anti-aging world. By using your own blood you can add volume to your skin and also stimulates the growth of new tissue by using regenerative cells found in the blood. The end results is a more radiant and youthful look all from using your own natural blood. This non-surgical cosmetic treatment is known by other names, such as:

  • Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
  • Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM)
  • Selphyl, “Vampire Filler”
  • Dracula Facelift

This outpatient procedure uses the method of extracting your platelets and creating your very own unique dermal filler in order to provide you with a more youthful appearance. This method has proven to be an effective treatment to help restore volume in the lips, cheeks and under the eyes in addition to smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines.

How Does It Work?

The Vampire Facelift is a minimally-invasive procedure where a small amount of your own blood is drawn and processed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from your blood. Using a special process the growth factors from the platelets are released. These growth factors (or regenerative cells) are then injected into the treatment area to stimulate stem cells that produce new tissue, such as collagen, blood vessels and fatty tissue.

Our blood contains platelets, growth factors, plasma, white blood cells, and other natural healing agents that get stimulated any time our body sustains an injury. The use of Dermapen (a minimally invasive procedure) which creates thousands of tiny micro-injuries, is combined with the added benefits of your platelet rich plasma. The Vampire Facelift can be completed in less than 1 hour. Your skin will go through a rapid healing process to stimulate new growth of collagen, tissue and stem cells to give you a vibrant glow.

How Is A Vampire Facelift Different?

The biggest differences between a Vampire Facelift and the alternatives is that a Vampire Facelift doesn’t require surgical procedures or the use of harsh chemicals such Hyaluronic acid (HA). In addition, a Vampire Facelift has the added benefit of stimulating cell growth rather than just “filling” the area with another substance.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has also been used effectively by means of an injection to treat the following medical conditions:

  • Tendonitis
  • Ligament tears/sprains
  • Bursitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Golfers and Tennis elbow
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Shin Splints
  • Hair Loss
  • Tissue repair

How Safe Is A Vampire Facelift?

The Vampire Facelift is a very safe procedure for lifting up the skin and smoothing wrinkles. Unlike other alternatives the primary content used for a Vampire Facelift is the patient’s own blood, so it will generally cause very little allergic reaction or side effects to the patient. A venipuncture is performed, no different than having your blood drawn for testing purposes. Once a tube of whole blood has been collected, it will be placed in a centrifuge allowing the whole blood to separate into red blood cells, plasma, and platelets.

A topical numbing cream, such as lidocaine may be applied to your face to help make this treatment more comfortable. Your platelet rich plasma will be mixed with a hyaluronic acid facial filler like Juvederm, Restylane, or Radiesse and will be administered with Dermapen to ensure consistent and even coverage. Since this dermal filler is made up of all natural ingredients, the chance of experiencing an allergic reaction is highly unlikely.

How Long Is The Procedure?

The whole Vampire Facelift process usually takes less than an hour to complete though in some cases it may take slightly more time depending on your own circumstances.

How Long Before I See Results?

Generally you will see some improvement almost immediately after the procedure. However, you will notice gradual improvements over the next several weeks as collagen starts to grow and generate more healthy cells under the skin. Optimum results typically take two to three months.

What Should I Expect Post Treatment?

There is virtually no down time at all aside from some mild bruising or irritation at the treatment site. The procedure only takes about an hour, leaves no visible scarring and you are permitted to go home or back to work immediately after the procedure. You can practically get it done on your lunch break.

How Long Do The Results Last?

Each Vampire Facelift treatment can last anywhere from 9 – 24 months depending on your skin care regimen and protection against sun exposure. For best long-term results it’s generally recommended to get a reinforcement treatment every 9 months.

What Are The Side Effects?

The area(s) treated will be red, tender and may show slight bruising which can last up to 7 days. You may be advised to avoid sun exposure, sweating, and applying make up for the next 24 hours while your skin heals and the pores are vulnerable. You may receive a post treatment kit that includes a specially formulated cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen to promote the healing process.
