A vampire facelift refers to a procedure that utilizes blood from a patient’s own body as a treatment for wrinkles. The procedure is commonly confused with other surgical facelift techniques, but the process is quite different. The term ‘vampire’ in this procedure references the use of blood. It can help rejuvenate the face by removing the early signs of aging such as loose sagging skin and wrinkles.

The Vampire Facelift Procedure

The vampire facelift involves multiple steps that help to improve one’s appearance. Your doctor will first inject fillers with hyaluronic acid as the base into designated areas of the body. After that is completed, he will draw blood from the arms. The blood is then processed into platelet rich plasma (PRP) and then reinjected into your skin.

PRP contains compounds that promote healing. When injected into the skin, it can stimulate the production of collagen, tissues, and blood vessels to make your skin appear more youthful than it was before the treatment. As a result, you will look many years younger and more beautiful.

PRP has been long used in treating bone injuries, especially those related to sports. The concept of a vampire facelift is the same as treating these bone injuries. The only difference is that there is no real facial injury present. It’s ability to promote the growth of healthy tissue and the increased collagen production can help aid in healing wounds as well as removing the signs of aging from the face.

Top Reasons to Choose a Vampire Facelift

A vampire facelift is very helpful in restoring the natural glow to the face. With time, the skin may suffer from a number of different ailments such as discoloration, lack of fullness, and severe fine lines, but the use of PRP can help reverse these changes and rejuvenate the skin.

Due to normal aging process, the face can also develop loose skin that creates a droopy and unappealing look. The loss of healthy skin proteins can make the face sag and look old. Vampire facelifts can help restore loss volume and make you look youthful again.

The procedure includes use of dermal fillers that can help to restore lost skin volume and remove creases from face. When combined with PRP, the procedure becomes a very potent solution to aging skin problems.

Since the treatment utilizes substances that are naturally present in the body, patients can feel safe knowing that there is a low risk of allergic reactions and a low chance of complications occurring during the procedure.
