Vampire Facelift Q & A
What is a Vampire Facelift?
A Vampire Facelift lifts and contours your face, diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and promotes softer, tighter skin without surgery. Your new appearance is the result of two injectable products that complement each other:
Dermal fillers are injected underneath wrinkles and in areas of your face where you want to augment or lift features, such as your cheeks.
PRP stimulates rejuvenated skin by promoting collagen and other tissue production and producing new skin growth that’s stronger and more resilient.
How does a dermal filler work?
The dermal fillers used during a Vampire Facelift contain hyaluronic acid mixed with a smooth gel base. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance produced in your skin, where it helps deliver nutrients and retains moisture, keeping your skin hydrated and soft.
When your provider injects a dermal filler under a wrinkle, it adds volume and lifts the wrinkle, significantly diminishing its appearance. Some fillers are specifically designed to treat your midface, where they lift and contour cheeks.
How does PRP work?
PRP is plasma that has a high concentration of platelets, which are rich sources of specialized proteins called growth factors. Growth factors are essential for your body’s healing process because they stimulate cell and tissue growth.
When your provider injects PRP into your skin, the growth factors activate the synthesis of skin cells, collagen, fatty tissue, blood vessels, and other tissues needed for healthy skin. As new skin gradually replaces old skin, your skin is rejuvenated, stronger, and has a smoother texture.
Where does PRP come from?
PRP is made in the office by drawing a small amount of your blood, then placing it in a centrifuge that separates the platelets and plasma from other blood components. Since your blood is used to make your PRP injection, there are no compatibility concerns.
When will you see results?
Hyaluronic acid fillers produce immediate results that last about one to two years, depending on the type of filler used.* It takes time for new tissue to grow following a PRP injection, and you’ll see the improvement gradually, with optimal results in a few months.
