What is the Vampire FaceLift?
The Vampire FaceLift® is a term used to describe the use of your body’s own blood cells, Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP, in combination with FDA-approved fillers to rejuvenate the face. As we age we lose collagen in the skin. This leads to fine lines, hollows and changes in skin texture and tone. The platelet cells obtained and used in the Vampire FaceLift secrete growth factors that stimulate new collagen in the skin for a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
How is the Vampire FaceLift Performed?
The procedure entails taking a small amount of blood from your arm. The blood cells are then processed to obtain highly purified cells that are responsible for collagen creation in the skin. This purified material is then injected into the areas of concern on the face. If more volume is needed, a hyaluronic acid filler material is added to provide greater lifting power.
What areas of the face does the Vampire FaceLift treat?
The areas most commonly treated include:
- PRP/Vampire FaceLift for lower eyelid lines
- PRP/Vampire FaceLift for dark under-eye circles
- PRP/Vampire FaceLift for skin texture
- PRP/Vampire FaceLift for lip lines
