Volumize, lift and restructure – all at the same time.
The Vampire Facelift® procedure combines our widely used fillers with your own platelets. The filler works by adding volume immediately to the areas that have lost their youthful lift due to gravity. Then, we add PRP to the same areas, further boosting the filler’s effects. Over the next few days, your skin absorbs the platelets and you are left with the volume the beautiful filler has restored.
Simultaneously, your natural stem cells are activated by the platelets, causing them to migrate to the areas they were injected. New collagen, blood vessels and tissue develop and results in younger appearing skin. As times goes on and the filler begins to break down, the effects of the PRP are seen, leaving the areas that needed it the most just gorgeous. The results continue to improve for 2-3 months and can last for 1-2 years. If you are someone whose filler just “doesn’t seem to last,” this procedure is for you!
PRP Facelift FAQs
Does it hurt?
We can apply a topical numbing cream for 20- 30 minutes prior to the procedure so not really. The fillers have lidocaine in them as well which enhances the numbing.
How long does an appointment take?
Depending on the number of filler syringes you are getting, a typical appointment requires less than 90 minutes.
Is there any recovery time?
There may be swelling, bruising and/or redness in the treated area(s) for less than a week.
When are the effects visible?
The results of the fillers are immediate. PRP will enhance these effects right away but then the platelets are absorbed by your system. You will see the full results in 3-4 months.
How long will my results last?
The results vary, depending on the type of fillers used. However, this treatment can last up to 1-2 years in most patients.
How many treatments are needed?
We recommend 1 treatment, but we will have you return for follow up to ensure you achieved the look you wanted.
