What is a Vampire Facelift?‏

‏A vampire facelift, also known as a PRP vampire facial, is a cosmetic technique that utilizes the patient’s blood to reduce the signs of aging. It involves the injection of plasma and a hyaluronic acid filler into the patient’s facial tissues.‏

‏A successful PRP vampire facial will make your skin look less wrinkled. This technique makes use of the power of stem cells and growth factors found in platelet-rich plasma. Platelet-rich plasma is used in a wide variety of applications in medicine. For instance, it is also used to accelerate the healing of wounds and burns.‏

‏The PRP vampire facial procedure was developed in the United States by Dr. Charles Runels MD. Since its introduction, many people have taken an interest in it due to the results it delivers. People prefer this method because it’s completely natural. As a result, it has been used by thousands of patients around the world. ‏

The vampire facelift procedure utilizes the most effective techniques for harvesting the growth factors and stem cells which are then used to stimulate and regenerate skin. The aim of the procedure is to create the volume and shape that restores youthfulness and natural beauty. Vampire facelift results can be very impressive, and they last for about a year.‏

Benefits of a vampire facial:‏

  • ‏Reduce the appearance of wrinkles‏
  • ‏Fuller and more youthful skin‏
  • ‏Treat acne scars,‏
  • ‏Make the patient’s skin brighter.‏

‏A PRP vampire facial is safe for people of any age. However, it’s not recommended for people who are taking blood thinners, suffering from skin cancer, or any blood-linked illness like hepatitis C. ‏

What Does the Vampire Facial Do?‏

Research shows that the skin’s texture will significantly improve when injected with platelet-rich plasma. This plasma is packed with nutrients, proteins, and different types of hormones which it carries to the rest of the body. It also contains growth factors. Due to its growth factor content, platelet-rich plasma can stimulate cell turnover, collagen production, and elastin for firmer, more youthful skin.‏

‏To carry out the procedure, the medical professional will first draw blood from your arm. The blood is then processed to separate the platelets from the rest of it. A centrifuge is used to achieve this. This is a machine that spins the blood at a high speed. The machine distributes and separates your blood and fluid based off of different thickness. Upon obtaining the platelet-rich plasma, the medical professional will prep your face by cleaning it and sometimes injecting a numbing cream. When your face is ready, they will then proceed to inject it along with hyaluronic acid filler.‏

‏The purpose of the hyaluronic acid (HA) filler is to help with sculpting specific areas of your face. It also replaces the natural glycosaminoglycans of the skin. The function of these is to hold water like a sponge, which gives volume and shape to the face. However, as the body is aging, glycosaminoglycans are lost. Therefore, the injection with an HA filler is the first step to achieving the ultimate desired shape and form.‏

‏The final stages of the procedure involve refining and polishing the sculpting process. This is what ultimately results in the appearance of a younger version of you. The combined effects of HA filler and growth factors from the PRP help stimulate unipotent stem cells in your skin to make you look younger and more youthful.‏

What Happens Before the Procedure?‏

‏During your initial consultation, the doctor carrying out your procedure will first assess the extent of volume loss and laxity in your skin. They also assess whether you are a suitable candidate for the benefits of a vampire facial. During the consultation, you may ask questions like, “how long does the vampire facelift last?” If they determine that a vampire facelift is the best way to achieve your desired goals, then they can start assessing the three stages of facial skin aging. ‏

‏These three stages of aging are measured by evaluating the changes in:‏

  • ‏Color of the patient’s skin. This changes because of the decrease in the underlying blood flow.‏
  • ‏The shape of the face. As the underlying collagen keeps weakening and deteriorating, there will be an increase in the laxity or drooping of facial skin.‏
  • ‏The overall texture of the skin. As you age, your skin starts losing its smoothness and elasticity.‏

‏After this assessment, the doctor will then discuss the lifestyle and other factors, like smoking, which can affect the benefits of a vampire facial. They will also go over any medically active skincare products you can use or shouldn’t use. After that, the doctor will then take photographs of your face before, during, and after the treatment so they can monitor your progress and check the vampire facelift before and after.‏

‏Some doctors also require that you bring a few photographs of when you were younger to the initial consultation. It can be used as a guide that helps restore and enhance your appearance to achieve a naturally youthful look. The pictures are also useful for vampire facelift before and after comparison.‏

What to Expect After a Vampire Facelift‏?

‏The vampire facelift procedure is non-invasive. However, it is not uncommon to notice some redness on your face following your treatment. The good thing is that with minimal downtime, your face will quickly heal, and the redness will go away. ‏

‏It is advisable not to try and touch your face in the hours after the procedure. Depending on the advice from your doctor, you can also use an ice pack to relieve the swelling and alleviate any pain.

Vampire Facelift Results‏

‏Some vampire facelift results are immediate, and some take a while to be noticeable. Most people who get a vampire facelift notice an immediate plumping. This is the result of having the filler injected. This plumping is easily visible on vampire facelift before and after pictures.‏

The glow and the evenness from the platelet-rich plasma will start being noticeable after about two to three weeks. Most people also wonder about how long the vampire facelift lasts. It is important to note that results from a vampire facelift are not permanent. They will typically last for a single year, and some may go as long as 18 months.‏

Is the Vampire Facelift Treatment Safe?‏

The vampire facelift is a relatively short and safe procedure that takes between 45 and 60 minutes to complete. Before the procedure, the doctor typically applies an anesthetic cream, which takes about an hour to take effect. Because of the anesthetic cream, the treatment will not be painful—a few patients report minimal discomfort during the procedure. ‏

‏Since the vampire facelift uses platelet-rich plasma from your cell, together with small amounts of biocompatible hyaluronic acid filler, there is a very slim chance that you will experience any adverse reactions or complications. This is a regulated system that FDA-approved doctors mostly perform, so it’s relatively safe.‏
