Vampire Facelift: A Lot Prettier Than It Sounds

When most people think about the Vampire Facelift or Facial, they remember Kim Kardashian crying in pain during her dramatic “reality show” procedure, which overdramatized the effects of the procedure by leaving her with a swollen and bloody face. The truth, however, is that this couldn’t be further from the real experience of having a Vampire Facelift and Facial performed by a medical professional.

The procedure begins by applying a numbing cream to the face to make the treatment a pain-free experience. Like every PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment, we use the growth factors contained in your own blood to enhance volume to the face and create a significant improvement in your skin’s tone and texture.

The process involves using a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your blood and then activating the growth factors contained in the PRP. These growth factors are injected into the face using tiny needles to stimulate collagen growth and add volume, along with the option of injecting a hyaluronic acid facial filler to subtly sculpt the face with more volume and to create a more radiant and youthful look.

We also use a technique called the Vampire Facial in coordination with the Facelift. The Vampire Facial involves a micro-needling roller or pen, which injects the same collagen stimulating growth factors to help generate cellular production directly to the dermis, drastically improving both skin tone and texture.

Because both applications are subtle, you totally avoid the risk of having an unnatural look after either procedure. The goal of both the Vampire Facelift and Facial is to create a smooth and vibrant appearance that is both natural and youthful.

You’re probably asking yourself whether or not this is the procedure for you. No matter your age, the procedure can significantly improve your appearance. In fact, having a Vampire Facelift and Facial regularly while you’re younger will reduce the need for more major procedures and surgeries later in life.

After the Vampire Facelift and Facial, your skin will continue to improve over the course of 3-4 months and the results will last for 1-2 years. It’s a perfect procedure to have done before a big event, like your wedding or high school reunion. Recovery is so short that you can return to work the next day.

The Vampire Facelift and Facial might sound scary but they’re actually an incredibly successful procedure no matter what your age or skin condition.
