The Vampire Facelift is a customized non surgical procedure that utilizes injection of platelet rich plasma and Hyaluronic Acid fillers for rejuvenation of the face.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is an innovative medical procedure that uses a patient’s cells to promote deep tissue healing and repair. This autologous treatment offers patients with a rejuvenating way to improve troublesome areas without the need for surgery. PRP therapy is a well-known treatment that has been used in the medical community for the past few decades.
What Is A Vampire Facelift?
A vampire PRP facelift is a novel way to repair skin tissue by directly injecting a patient’s PRP and Hyalronic Acid into target areas. The plasma rich protein and HA is guided to a position that is between the flesh and bone. Here, a patient’s cells can stimulate the repair process in such a way that would not be possible otherwise. Each injection brings patients one step closer to a glowing and smooth complexion that simply radiates. Although this procedure is referred to as a ‘facelift’ it only mimics the results of a surgical procedure. Due to this, patients can easily undergo facial enhancements without needing to be put under.
What Is A Vampire Facial?
A vampire facial* involves directly injecting PRP cells into the face with microneedling. The intended result is to repair target blemishes, increase collagen production, decrease wrinkles and speed up recovery time. Patient’s plasma treatment starts with obtaining blood and isolating platelet rich plasma utilizing a centrifuge. Once these cells are removed, they are ready to be injected back into the skin utilizing microneedling methods.
How Is A Vampire Facelift Different Than A Vampire Facial?
The difference between a vampire facelift and a facial is the way that PRP treatment and Hyaluronic Acid are administered. Vampire facials work primarily by resurfacing the skin with a group of tiny needles. This is ideal for patients who have large pores, light wrinkles, or moderate acne scars. A vampire PRP facelift goes deeper than the vampire facial. This makes it possible to tackle troublesome areas, such as deep wrinkles.
Benefits To A Vampire Facelift

The PRP treatment process works by administering a patient’s plasma directly between the bone and skin under target areas. Doing so promotes repair, fast healing and luscious plumping in those spots. Due to this novel practice, our physicians are able to enhance a patient’s tired looking skin. The end result is usually a healthy glow and smoother complexion without surgery.
