The aging process can bring about many different changes to your appearance. The area that tends to display these changes the most is usually the face. As time goes by, many of us will experience sagging skin, jowls, and wrinkles that will make us look much older than we’d like to appear. But thanks to innovative procedures like the Vampire facelift, you can easily reverse these signs of aging.

What is the Vampire Facelift?

A Vampire facelift is a cosmetic procedure that combines the use of injectable HA fillers along with your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP). The procedure is designed to redefine your facial contours by replenishing lost volume and rejuvenating the look and feel of the skin. The added benefits of PRP include improved skin texture and collagen production for firmer, younger-looking skin and when injected over the HA filler will increase the length of time the fillers last.

The Vampire Facelift Procedure

During the procedure, Jo Ann, NP-C will perform a blood draw and separate the platelets using a special centrifuge. The plasma will then be injected back into the skin along with dermal fillers like Juvederm to help promote faster healing, reduce wrinkles, diminish acne scars, and brighten dull skin. The procedure will typically take about 1 hour and patients can safely return home the same day.

How Long Does the Vampire Facelift Last?

Since the Vampire Facial harness’s, the body’s natural processes to form new tissue, results are long-lasting. Within 2 to 3 weeks the tissue starts to look full and natural. The effects of the procedure improve for 2 to 3 months and last for at least 1 to 2 years!

Risks Involved With The Vampire Facelift

Dr. Balikian and his Aesthetic injectors are dedicated to providing the utmost quality of care when performing any of our cosmetic services to ensure a high degree of safety. There are minimal side effects associated with the Vampire facelift, including swelling, itching, and bruising. These symptoms are temporary, however, and will subside quickly as you heal.


If you desire beautiful, younger-looking skin without excessive downtime for recovery, the Vampire facelift may be an excellent choice for you. It’s a safe treatment for people of any age but may not be suited for you if you take medications that cause blood thinning, or you suffer from skin cancer, HIV, or hepatitis C.

Jo Ann Coker, NP-C will help determine if you are a suitable candidate during your consultation. At this time, she will discuss the details of the procedure in more depth and ask you about your medical history to make sure there are not any underlying risk factors.
