What is the Vampire Face Lift®?
The Vampire Face Lift® is a custom-designed procedure that combines the science of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, such as Restylane, Belotero and Juvederm; Platelet Rich Plasma and the artful eye of a skilled physician to deliver youthful, natural beauty that is as unique as you are.
How does the Vampire Facelift® Work?
The initial injection of hyaluronic acid fillers is injected skillfully to create a more youthful shape. One the desired shape is accomplished PRP is injected strategically to start the rejuvenation process. PRP ultimately contributes to the appearance of a younger version of you, with improved skin quality, color and texture. With the Vampire Facelift®, you can achieve youthful, natural all without surgery and minimal downtime.
What can I expect from the Vampire Facelift® Procedure?
Each patient will experience a fresher, more youthful appearance artfully designed to meet your needs. Benefits of The Vampire Facelift® include:
- The skin "glows" because of new blood vessel formation.
- New collagen forms in the dermis and lifts and refines the skin.
- Because the growth factors are working to build a new dermis, the epidermis (the outer most layers of your skin) appears smoother.
Unlike the Vampire Facial™, fillers are used in the Vampire Facelift™ so patients will see the immediate volume effect and improved facial contour. During the following weeks new collagen will form, generating more healthy cells underneath the skin. There is typically a noticeable change in your skin quality.
Can I go to Work immediately after Vampire Facelift™?
Some people do. Dermal filler and PRP is injected into the face and therefore you may experience mild redness, bruising and/or swelling. It is best to expect the worst and allow yourself time before important events, photos, etc. Swelling resolves in 24-48 hours but a bruise can last up to 2 weeks for some people. It is best to avoid strenuous workout for 48 hours after procedure to minimize bruising and swelling.
Is Vampire Facelift™ better than traditional facelift surgery?
Traditional facelift surgery may be necessary for some patients who have the need for more extensive correction. However, traditional face-lift procedures not only exposes patients to many after surgery complications but can also cause a lot of inconvenience due to the long healing time (usually 7 to 10 weeks).
One advantage of the Vampire Facelift™ is that the procedure only involves needle injections to the desired areas of patient's face and requires minimal healing time. And because the patients own blood is what is used, there are virtually no side effects.
Vampire Facelift™ should also be considered after a traditional face lift so that proper volume can be added and skin rejuvenation can occur. Traditional facelift simply lifts the skin but does nothing to facilitate a more youthful shape nor does it improve skin quality, texture and elasticity.
Who is a candidate for Vampire Facelift™?
Well, generally speaking anyone can have the Vampire Face Lift™ as it is a non-invasive cosmetic surgery. Though traditional facelift surgery is perfectly fine for certain patients, more and more people are opting for non-invasive options because it is less expensive and safer than surgery, more effective and offers very minimal downtime if any.
How do you know the Vampire Facelift® is right for you?
A surgical facelift may be useful in very specific cases, but it is not a cure-all for the aging face. The surgical facelift can contribute to a collapse of the face as the skin is stretched tightly over the bone, leaving a skeleton-like appearance and does nothing to improve the quality of the skin. The Vampire Facelift®, however, lifts the face away from the bone, creating youthful volume and restoring shape. In combination with HA fillers, the Vampire Facelift® also improves the skin's texture, color and integrity.

Are there any side effects of the Vampire Facelift™?

Having said that, below are some of the common side effects that can occur when dealing with any sorts of facial filler injections:
- Mild irritation & itching (depending on the sensitivity of your skin)
- Mild swelling or edema
- Bruising (caused by the reaction of your skin to the physical injection)
Is The Vampire Facelift™ Safe?
Although the name is a little frightening, the procedure is a very safe and effective way to lift up the skin and smooth out the wrinkles without distinguishable side effects.
How long will the effects last of the Vampire Facelift?
Each Vampire Facelift™ procedure is usually going to last for about 9 to 12 months. Just like getting your haircut is not a one-time event, cosmetic procedures require maintenance ongoing treatments to restore youth.
