What is a vampire facelift?
While the name may sound scary, it makes sense once you know how it works. The vampire facelift gets its name from the main rejuvenating ingredient: your own blood. Technically, the vampire facelift isn’t a facelift at all. There are no incisions and no skin is removed. But the procedure can make your face look and feel smooth and rejuvenated, like a facelift without the downtime.
The procedure uses a combination of an injectable filler, like Juvederm, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which is taken from your own blood. This combination is injected into your skin to add volume to your face, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and give your skin a more youthful look. PRP is the clear part of blood containing a high concentration of growth-promoting platelets. When injected into your face, PRP stimulates collagen, elastin, and fat cell growth, improving your skin’s texture.
