Vampire Lift Q & A

What is a vampire lift?

A vampire lift is a type of skin rejuvenation that employs platelet rich plasma (PRP) taken from the patient's own body. The reintroduction of platelet rich plasma to the face can be beneficial in multiple ways, including collagen stimulation and skin recovery.

What happens during a vampire lift?

The vampire lift process begins with a quick and easy blood draw. The blood is drawn from the arm, and the process is similar to any typical blood draw. A vampire lift requires a small sample of blood (approximately 1.5. oz.) of blood. The blood is placed in a special machine, a closed sterile system that will generate centrifugal force to remove the PRP from the other part of the blood. After this, the platelets are highly concentrated to around triple their usual blood values. The platelets are activated with additional growth and healing substances to maximize their ability to heal and rejuvenate. The platelets are then injected with very fine needles. This injection process, known as microneedling, allows for delivery of the patient's own PRP, deep into the skin where it can start repair and rejuvenation quickly.

What are the effects of the vampire lift?

A vampire lift can add volume in areas where it's needed, such as facial folds. Fine lines and wrinkles can be greatly minimized or even totally eliminated. The skin usually looks younger, more toned, and more clear after a vampire lift. This type of facial can be an excellent way to achieve a more youthful and rejuvenated look overall.

How long does it take to see results after a vampire lift?

Many people see results right away. Most people immediately notice that folds, wrinkles, and lines in the face have started to fill in. It usually takes a couple of weeks to see optimal results.

How often do patients need to have vampire lifts to maintain results?

Patients often experience continued skin improvement for 12-15 months after a vampire lift. To achieve the very best results, patients may want to combine a vampire lift with laser skin treatment. Low level laser therapy can help the skin heal quickly and can amplify the effects of the vampire lift.
