Vampire Facelift

Discover Ageless Beauty With the Vampire Facelift®!

The Vampire Facelift® is an innovative, non-invasive technique designed to enhance your youthful appearance by reversing the damage caused by the natural aging process. This revolutionary technique involves activating platelet-rich plasma (PRP) filled with potent growth factors from within your own blood to restore vital proteins like collagen and hyaluronic acid (HA) that your skin has lost over time. Your own PRP with these rich growth factors, combined with powerful HA-based fillers, can effectively and safely correct a variety of facial damage including:

  • Tired, worn out, and exhausted facial appearance due to the loss of muscle elasticity
  • Uneven, dim, or dry texture due to reduced blood flow to the tissues in your skin
  • Sagging and fatigued appearance because of loss of facial contour

The Vampire Facelift® was developed to provide the safest, most effective method of combatting the signs of aging, because The Vampire Facelift®:

  • Accomplishes the same results as a non-surgical facelift without the associated risk, cost, and recovery time
  • Is a minimally-invasive procedure that does not require anesthesia
  • Provides successful, long-lasting results with improved skin tone and silky feel of your skin
  • Utilizes hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers more effectively
  • Corrects volume depletion and irregular skin texture while improving the shape of your face
  • Regenerates your facial tissues to return the youthful vibrancy and glow to your skin

The Science Behind the Vampire Facelift®

The Vampire Facelift® is a revolutionary procedure combining the best medical techniques while providing truly stunning aesthetic results, all while maintaining the nature contours of your face. The Vampire Facelift® is a customized process using a combination of growth factors from your own blood and HA-based dermal fillers in a four-step approach to facial rejuvenation. This process stimulates the production of new collagen, blood vessels, and fatty tissue. The result is healthy, youthful-looking skin that actually heals damage caused by the aging process.

Step One: The PRP is collected: A small amount of the patient’s blood—approximately two teaspoons—is drawn, purified, and separated in a centrifuge that isolates the platelet rich plasma (PRP) containing eight growth factors that are used by the body to heal injured tissues. These growth factors are activated when the PRP is separated from the blood.

Step Two: Laser skin resurfacing: Dr. Rath individualizes the treatment to match each patient’s unique aesthetic requirements, but most patients require some laser treatment of sun damage, redness, texture, and pores, typically performed at the same time as the Vampire Facelift®.

Step Three: The skin actually repairs itself: After the growth factors in the PRP have been activated, the solution is injected into the face with a very small needle and numbing cream at the site of injection. The growth factors then begin to activate the stem cells in your facial tissue inside your skin. This stimulates the growth of new collagen, blood vessels, and fatty tissues. The PRP injections, in combination with laser skin resurfacing, results in younger, naturally beautiful skin without the signs of aging!

Step Four: Hyaluronic Acid-based fillers: Experts have researched how HA based fillers should be used to maintain the natural contours and preserve the natural shape of the face. While not all patients require the use of fillers after the combination of PRP and laser resurfacing, the final step of a Vampire Facelift® with Dr. Rath may involves follow-up pictures and subsequent careful injection of hyaluronic acid-based fillers to shape facial features if needed.

The procedure is accomplished in one simple office visit. This rejuvenation technique is comfortable and safe and does not take away from your very busy schedule. Because the Vampire Facelift® relies on your own body’s healing capabilities to produce beautiful and natural results, your treatment results will continue to improve for the next two to three months, and it can last for up to two years.
