What is the vampire facelift?
The vampire facelift is a cosmetic procedure that uses platelets from a patient’s own blood (hence, the name) to stimulate growth factors that fight various aging signs, along with a hyaluronic acid filler to encourage increased collagen production in the treatment area.
Growth factors are proteins that stimulate cell growth and tissue repair, while collagen is a protein that is essential to wound healing and the structural integrity of every connective tissue in our body, including the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that naturally occurs within the body, specifically in the fluid around the joints and eyes.
The vampire facelift process is minimally invasive. The process first involves drawing blood from the patient’s arm, which is then placed in a centrifuge, a machine that spins at an extremely high-speed to separate fluids into their different densities. The centrifuge separates the platelets from the red blood cells and plasma, which is the blood’s liquid portion. The platelets and plasma will then be prepared together with a hyaluronic acid gel for the injection.
Before the specialist administers the injection, they will clean your skin and may also apply a numbing cream so that the procedure is as comfortable as possible. Finally, the specialist will administer the injection using tiny needles into the superficial layers of the patient’s skin.
How long does a vampire facelift last?
While results from a vampire facelift are not permanent, they are typically quite long-lasting! As such, most patients notice improvements for at least one year, and some even experience results that last for up to 18 months. Such results are typically noted as improvements in overall skin tone and texture in the treatment area, allowing for a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
Does the vampire facelift really work?
Vampire facelifts have proven effective for numerous people! Specifically, many patients have found vampire facelifts to successfully help them in the following ways:
- Boost volume
- Brighten dull complexion or tone
- Diminish acne and acne scars
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles, such as crow’s feet lines around the eyes, frown lines, or forehead lines
- Tighten areas of loose or sagging skin
- And more!
What happens after a vampire facial?
While there is no downtime with a vampire facial, meaning you can return to your daily routine after the procedure, you may experience some redness in the treatment area. Your specialist will provide you with post-treatment instructions on how to best care for the treatment site to let it heal. Thanks to the hyaluronic acid filler, you should notice immediate plumping results after the procedure. With the growth factors and collagen production, results should continue to improve until they reach their peak around six to 12 weeks after treatment. From that point, they should remove for approximately one year to 18 months.
What’s the difference between Microneedling and vampire facial?
While microneedling and vampire facials both aim to rejuvenate your skin, they go about that goal in different ways. Whereas vampire facials use your body’s innate healing and growth factors to rejuvenate your skin, microneedling creates micro-injuries to the skin’s surface to stimulate your body’s natural wound healing response and generate healthier and younger tissue to the treatment area. As such, both treatments attempt to harness your body’s healing power to rejuvenate your skin, but vampire facials attempt to do that without injuring the skin.
