Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy: The Vampire Facelift

In recent years the Vampire Facelift has attracted a lot of media attention. If you were a celebrity walking the red carpet at the 2013 Academy Awards, you would have received a swag bag which included a gift certificate for a complimentary vampire facelift. This is the skin-rejuvenating cosmetic procedure that Kim Kardashian tweeted about in March 2013, but it is not limited to the rich and famous. If you can afford to invest $1,000 – $1,500 in your appearances, you too can turn back the clock with a vampire facelift.

Do not let the popular name of the vampire facelift intimidate you. This is a valid cosmetic procedure that involves a unique process that uses the patient’s blood to improve the condition of facial skin. Trained medical professionals begin this modern procedure by drawing blood from the patient’s arm just as like during a routine blood test.

That is why the procedure is referred to as the vampire facelift, but the medical name for this procedure is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, or PRP therapy. While many of our patients are intrigued by the name of this procedure and the many before/after pictures of celebrities who have received the procedure, we want to educate you about the procedure.

This page will introduce you to platelet rich plasma therapy and help you determine whether it is a good option for your skin. Celebrity pictures are encouraging, but we want you to think about your own before/after pictures. Once you understand our medical professionals complete PRP therapy and how it may benefit your skin, you can contact us for a private consultation.

Inside the Treatment

The Vampire Facelift procedure begins only after a thorough personal consultation with our medical professionals, be it the same day or weeks or months ahead of time. Once all of your questions regarding the procedure are answered, and you are at peace with your decision to awaken the natural beauty of your skin with platelet rich plasma therapy, the treatment begins.

Your trained, experienced medical professional will numb your skin for comfort before moving through the following procedure:

1. Your physician or the nurse draws fresh blood from your arm.

2. They will separate your blood’s plasma from your red blood cells. The red blood cells are discarded, and the plasma is preserved for your treatment. This plasma contains valuable platelets that can stimulate the production of collagen and the generation of new skin cells. All growth factors needed to rejuvenate and refresh the skin are included in this plasma.

3. Your blood plasma is mixed using a special process to ‘activate’ the growth factors.

4. The solution is injected into your skin as discussed during your consultation. This step will vary from one patient to another, depending on your needs and the results you expect to see from the procedure.

This Vampire Facelift is completed much like any other rejuvenating injection treatment, but the use of your own blood makes it the changes come from inside your own body. Most procedures are completed in less than an hour.

Potential Benefits of PRP

It is tempting to rush into a cosmetic procedure when you see those amazing before/after pictures of celebrities, but what can you really expect your results to look like? There are several possibilities to consider:

  • Youthful, vibrant skin glow – fresh cell production
  • Tighter, firmer skin – reduced sagging
  • Enhanced collagen production
  • Fewer fine lines
  • Reduction or elimination of acne scars
  • Elimination of dark under-eye circles
  • Improved skin texture or tone
  • Substantial increase in facial volume

Standard facelift surgeries are completed to smooth out wrinkles and tighten skin for a more youthful appearance. This is exactly what you can expect from a vampire facelift, though there are some significant differences between PRP and a surgical facelift.

Vampire Facelift vs. Surgical Facelift

The biggest difference between these two procedures is the non-invasive nature of the vampire facelift. There is less risk of complications during or after the procedure, and specifically significantly less risk of infection after the procedure, since PRP does not require surgical incisions into your skin. In addition:

  • The vampire facelift can be completed in less than an hour, but facelift surgery requires more time for both the treatment and recovery. Some PRP procedures may take a little longer than an hour if you target multiple areas of skin at once.
    • You only need topical anesthesia to control pain during PRP therapy, but you need more substantial anesthesia during a surgical procedure. You will also need pain medication after facial surgery, but that is not necessary for vampire facelift recovery.
    • Due to the lack of surgical incision, you will recover from your vampire facelift much faster than you would recover from a surgical facelift. This means you will spend far less time away from work and your family when you choose this non-invasive facelift option.

Another major difference between these procedures is the rate at which results are apparent. You will notice the full results of a surgical face lift as soon as your wounds have healed. In comparison, the full results from the PRP procedure can take up to two months to become noticeable. This modern procedure allows your skin to gradually heal and rejuvenate itself over time in a more natural fashion.

When you have a surgical facelift, it is easy for others to guess that you have undergone plastic surgery. The results are stark and immediate. PRP delivers a more natural, progressive regeneration of the skin that is not as obvious. While you will turn heads and questions will be asked about what you are doing to look so fresh and youthful, it won’t look as if you resorted to plastic surgery.

Restore Your Natural Shape and Volume

PRP is all about lifting your skin so that you see your face’s natural shape and volume return. With age, your skin naturally sinks, sags and flattens. You start to look more yellow or gray as your skin cells grow older and collagen levels deplete. You may notice fine lines around your mouth and eyes, or you may suffer from dark under-eye circles that do not go away with adequate sleep or relaxation.

A surgical facelift is effective if you have excess skin that you want removed or you just want to quickly tighten the skin. PRP is a more suitable option if you want to lift and shape your face without removing excess skin. If you still aren’t certain which option is best for your skin, come discuss your options with our experienced professionals. You will get answers to all of your questions and obtain additional information about the vampire facelift during your initial consultation.

PRP – Nature’s Facelift

Our patients may come through the door because they have heard about the vampire facelift through social media, mainstream media or from friends, but they decide to go through with the procedure for personal reasons. For many of our patients, it is a desire to look fresh and alive in the most natural manner possible. They want to look their best and stop premature signs of ageing, but they want to work with their skin rather than cutting into their skin.

The Vampire Facelift gives your body what it needs to naturally boost collagen production and develop fresh skin cells. The facelift results are not instant because it takes time for your body to make these adjustments and begin the process of healing your skin. You gradually improve the condition of your skin, but the final results are just as remarkable as the results often seen from surgical facelifts.

Don’t just look at those celebrity before/after pictures and wish those results were yours. Schedule a consultation with our professionals today to discuss the Vampire Facelift so that we can work together to bring your own before/after pictures to life.

    I’m having a difficult time understanding what the difference is with vampire facelift and vampire facial and PRP? Are all these treatments the same?

    I have been thinking to go in for a non surgical face lift but when I searched non surgical face lifts in Google I get an array number of different treatments who seem to do the same thing. I have seen vampire facelift before and after photos and they seem very impressive. The vampire facelift results seem to be very apparent and some patients before and after photos looked like they had surgical procedures.

    My main concern is the safety and along with vampire facelift cost, which seems to be very expensive. I do not like the sound of injecting my face with blood, it just does not sound right. I noticed some use a derma stamp with the vampire facelift or vampire facial. Is the derma stamp perhaps what makes the treatment work so well for some.

    Giovanna says:

    Vampire Facelift before and after photos look pretty amazing but to be honest I am still quite sceptical. In the past I have tried many non-invasive cosmetic surgery that promise much more than they can deliver and I ended up disappointed with the results time after time. From what I have read, there is an expensive price tag attached to this cosmetic procedure and I would probably recommend purchasing a session of laser treatments instead. Alternatively, there is also derma wand which I have recently purchased and it works really good and the results of the vampire facelift seem to be pretty similar to the derma wand results. In my opinion the vampire facelift procedure is just over-hyped and certainly overpriced.

    I have been reading so much about this procedure, following Kim Kardashians treatment it seemed like the media went crazy over it so I decided to have the vampire facelift (PRP) and had great results. My face now looks so much more refreshed and rejuvenated, the fine lines and wrinkles have diminished. The procedure took about 50 minutes and the doctors inject a injection solution (which contains the plasma that is separated from your blood which contains platelets that hold growth factors that helps with collagen growth). The treatment was painless. The vampire facelift cost may be high but it is certainly worth every cent.

  4. Vamp Facelift
    Vamp Facelift says:

    The vampire facelift is much better than any other facelift treatments available. It is the best instant facelift, it leaves your skin looking refreshed, over time it wipes years of your face leaving you with younger looking skin.

    Tiff says:

    I am really considering having the PRP injection treatment after seeing the before and after photos. I am wondering if there are any prp injection side effects that I should be concerned about, so far there have not been really any side effects that have me worried.

    The prp injection is the same as the vampire face lift? How does the prp injection compare to thread lift? This post compares prp to the traditional non surgical facelift but does not speak about specific facelift treatments. One of the above comments mentioned that derma wand would be better than the vampire facelift which I found really interesting cause I have a friend who has used the dermawand and she says how it does not work at all. I personally think it really all depends on who is doing the treatment for you, if you have a experienced doctor than you should see results.

    Hi Tiff, how much does the platelet rich plasma cost to do?
    I think I had this treatment done but it was called vampire facelift and I thought it was very expensive but after some convincing I decided to have it done. After my treatment I noticed that there the clinic I went to was running a deal on one of those deal sites for like 80% less than I paid. I was very annoyed. So I am trying to figure out if I was ripped off or their normal price is just incredible high.
    When I had the treatment done I had no idea what is prp or how prp works, when I got home I looked at before and afters and I did not see any results the photos showed which made me even more angry. I would suggest staying away from this treatment it just does not work and they have so many names for it, vampire facelift, vampire facial, prp injections.. If you want results I would suggest laser treatments such as thermage, refirme or skin rejuvenation laser treatments which actually work much better than vampire facelifts.

    Elle says:

    Okay… Vampire Facelift vs Surgical Facelift -YES! Vampire Facelift vs Liquied Facelift – NO! Or even laser facelift!!
    There just is not enough evidence for me that it does anything. I have seen Vampire Faclift results and there are very minor. They say its a natural facelift but its not.. I mean it uses your blood to apparently rejuvenate your skin – to me that all sounds like too good to be true. I bet they put something else in your blood too.. who says its even your own blood.. Its just wrong!

  8. Mini face lift
    Mini face lift says:

    I just need a mini face lift. Something that will plump up my face, make it look a little bit more lively. Sort of like a natural face lift, without all the cutting, scalpels and knives. And those expenses… Can anyone recommend something better than this, or is this really such a great thing? Sounds somewhat scary… The name of it really turned me off…

  9. Tina
    Tina says:

    My sister talks about the vampire facial a lot. I don’t listen to her that much, but she keeps on going on a tantrum about it, to the point where I was scared for her. I was thinking, why would anyone in their right mind name a treatment like that. But then I did my research, and bit my tongue, because there’s really some beneficial science behind the entire scary name.
    It sounds like something you could do at home, but in fact, it can be a scary and time-consuming procedure for the doctor. It’s not like some other procedures… They draw your blood, treat it, insert it back into the certain points you were looking to treat. It’s not that naïve, but the results really do look amazing. If you’re interested to see some pictures, you can always read other vampire facial reviews, or find the pictures online, they are everywhere!

  10. Get Anaesthesia
    Get Anaesthesia says:

    If you can, request the topical anaesthesia. I was so much afraid that it was going to be a lot of pain. Didn’t even want to look at those vampire facial injections… Some of you may say, well, why did you go for a vampire facial then. I read great reviews. Girls all around the web just can’t stop talking about this stuff… And the pics I’ve exchanged on blogs, they are amazing. Hoping that the people don’t lie, I’m willing to risk it. Once you have that numbing cream, you don’t feel nothing.
    I did feel it afterwards. Where the needle marks were, I felt like I have an itch… And it lasted for the entire day.

  11. Fancy
    Fancy says:

    In my circle of friends, we are all faithful to the platelet rich plasma therapy. It really sounds so fancy, doesn’t it? The platelet rich plasma is really the best thing for rejuvenating your skin and rewinding the years. I don’t know, it’s just something really special. We make it regular thing, and we make sure to spread the word. Although they say that the treatment lasts an hour, it took me less than that, approximately 50 minutes. My friend on the other hand, was in there for over an hour, but just a little bit. It all depends and varies on your skin and what kind of issues you deal with. I have clear skin, never had acne or anything like that. I was never sensitive to chemicals, I’ve used a range of chemical peels…

  12. Clinic search?
    Clinic search? says:

    I’m all for surgery and face lifts, but I also like to go to clinic to check out what new they have in stored. Maybe this isn’t something new, but the specialist I see had great thoughts on it. I believe in what the doctor had to say, and every once in a while I go for a vampire facial to freshen up my look, and to prevent my skin from aging a second even. I’m quite strict about it, if I see the tiniest little sign that my skin looks dull, or saggy, or dirty, I run to the clinic. So far I would say I’m a beauty expert, so, if you were wondering, for a vampire facial Sydney is a great place, because you have a variety of options of clinics and doctors, and you can choose whoever suits you the best.
