Vampire Face Lift®
The Answer Knocks on My Door
After studying the biology of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), doctors designed a way to rejuvenate the face using this natural product (from the person’s own body). It is called the Vampire Facelift®.
3 Signs of Aging
Skin color becomes grayer because of less blood flow.
Facial shape becomes collapsed and droopy as muscle and collagen decrease.
Skin texture becomes less smooth. As a result, the person looks worn, tired or droopy. The lively rosy hue that is seen plainly in playing children of every skin color and in young adults fades to a dull gray.
Why the Vampire?
With many ways to rejuvenate the face, why look for a better way? Cosmetic surgery can remove excess skin and make the person appear younger. But, a surgical face lift can be more than what is needed for some people (especially when loss of shape without extra skin is the main problem). Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers lift the skin away from the bone to restore youthful volume and shape. But HA fillers can cause problems near the eye.
Vampire Facelift ®
Also, the injector of HA fillers can chase a wrinkle and create a shape that looks foreign to the person’s face or even foreign to this planet. HA fillers do little to improve skin tone and texture. Unlike most procedures, the Vampire Facelift® offers a way of both restoring shape, and improving tone and texture, as well as, literally rejuvenating new and younger tissue!
Here’s what we found when using PRP in the face:
There has never been an allergic reaction or necrosis (this is coming from your own body, so the body does not react to it as a foreign substance).
Bruising is minimal if at all.
There is no lumpiness or nodules.
The effects last at least 18 months and could be permanent (as if the skin actually became younger).
There is actual growth of new tissue by stimulation of multipotent stem cells.
The change in shape is not from something foreign being in the body but from the body actually rejuvenating and growing!
The PRFM (platelet-rich fibrin matrix) stimulates new blood flow with new blood vessels–not from simple dilation of the pre-existing blood vessels (neovascularization).
Three Steps of the Vampire FaceLift® Procedure
First, the injector (1) uses HA fillers to create a beautiful shape. (2) Then, the physician isolates growth factors from the patient’s blood. (3) When these growth factors enter the face (injected by the physician), multipotent stem cells become activated to grow new tissue. This new tissue includes new collagen, new fatty tissue (for smoothness) and new blood vessels (for a healthy glow).
In the first part of the Vampire Facelift® procedure, the physician uses a Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler (like Restylane or Juvederm) in a very specific way to sculpt a younger appearing face–while still keeping the shape natural.
Providers of the Vampire Facelift® procedure take into account the mathematics of beauty as defined by much research (starting with the notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci) to avoid at all costs creating an unnatural shape. These ideas about the HA fillers are not commonly known even among the best of cosmetic surgeons and constitute part of the intellectual property protected by the trademarked name (Vampire Facelift®).
After creating a younger, natural shape, then the physician harvests from the woman’s own blood (hence the name Vampire) growth factors that her body would normally use to heal damaged tissue.
First, the physician draws blood (around 2 teaspoons).
Then, using a centrifuge, the physician isolates platelets from that blood (platelet-rich plasma or PRP)–all within a short time in the office!
Using numbing cream and a very small needle (for almost no pain), the physician injects the woman’s own growth factors back into her face in a particular way. These growth factors then activate multipotent stem cells already in the skin (tricking them into “thinking” there’s been an injury and new younger tissue should generate).
The multipotent stem cells then develop into new collagen, new blood vessels and new fatty tissue trying to “repair” the skin that was never injured!

Injecting the Magic into Your Face
The result…younger-appearing skin! The effects of the procedure improve for 2 to 3 months and last for at least 1 to 2 years! Use Your Blood to Rejuvenate Your Face. The Vampire Facelift® procedure is not for everyone. Many would do better with surgery, or laser therapy, or Botox®, or simply PRP or an HA filler used alone. We are passionate about helping you discover the right procedure for your face.
Vampire Breast Lift®
Much like the Vampire® Facelift, The Vampire Breast Lift® also combines the science of unipotent stem cells and the artful eye of a certified physician to deliver a custom-designed procedure that restores a more youthful contour and improves skin quality and nipple sensation.
How does the Vampire Breast Lift® work?
Volume is added to the décolletage. Then, the re-shaping re-sculpting process is completed using platelet rich plasma (PRP). PRP results in the appearance of ample and younger-looking breasts, improving skin quality, color, texture and sensitivity.
What will the Vampire Breast Lift® do for you?
Tired, worn or droopy are not the words you want to use to describe your breasts. As you age, the firmness and volume that may be observed in younger women begins to decrease. Loss of volume and a saggy appearance are common. The Vampire Breast Lift® can change this:
The shape becomes plump and full, increasing collagen and greater potential for development of muscle tissue
The texture become smooth and soft
Nipples become more sensitive
How do you know the Vampire Breast Lift® is right for you?
Breast implants and reconstructive surgery are classically necessary to lift and enlarge the breast in an effort to restore a more youthful appearance. However, implants and a surgical breast lift may lead to a rippled appearance and/or nipple numbness. The Vampire Breast Lift® strives to bring volume to droopy, worn or sagging breasts, while improving nipple sensitivity and texture, color and integrity of the breast.
