Vampire Facelift® FAQ
What Is A Vampire Facelift?
Vampire Facelifts are the latest trend in the anti-aging world. By using your own blood you can add volume to your skin and also stimulates the growth of new tissue by using regenerative cells found in the blood. The end results is a more radiant and youthful look all from using your own natural blood.
How Does A Vampire Facelift Work?
The Vampire Facelift is a minimally-invasive procedure where a small amount of your own blood is drawn and processed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from your blood. Using a special process the growth factors from the platelets are released. These growth factors (or regenerative cells) are then injected into the treatment area to stimulate stem cells that produce new tissue, such as collagen, blood vessels and fatty tissue.
How Is A Vampire Facelift Different?
The biggest differences between a Vampire Facelift and the alternatives is that a Vampire Facelift doesn’t require surgical procedures or the use of harsh chemicals such Hyaluronic acid (HA). In addition, a Vampire Facelift has the added benefit of stimulating cell growth rather than just “filling” the area with another substance.
How Safe Is A Vampire Facelift?
The Vampire Facelift is a very safe procedure for lifting up the skin and smoothing wrinkles. Unlike other alternatives the primary content used for a Vampire Facelift is the patient’s own blood, so it will generally cause very little allergic reaction or side effects to the patient.
How Long Is The Procedure?
The whole Vampire Facelift process usually takes less than an hour to complete though in some cases it may take slightly more time depending on your own circumstances.
How Long Before I See Results?
Generally you will see some improvement almost immediately after the procedure. However, you will notice gradual improvements over the next several weeks as collagen starts to grow and generate more healthy cells under the skin. Optimum results typically take two to three months.
How Much Downtime Is There?
There is virtually no down time at all aside from some mild bruising or irritation at the treatment site. The procedure only takes about an hour, leaves no visible scarring and you are permitted to go home or back to work immediately after the procedure. You can practically get it done on your lunch break.
What Are The Side Effects?
Given that the Vampire Facelift is so new, there might be some longer term side effects which are not visible at the moment. Having said that, below are some of the common side effects dealing with any sorts of facial filler injections:
- Mild irritation & itching (depending on the sensitivity of your skin)
- Mild swelling or edema
- Bruising (this is caused by the reaction of your skin to the physical injection)

How Long Do The Results Last?
Each Vampire Facelift treatment can last anywhere from 9 – 24 months depending on your skin care regimen and protection against sun exposure. For best long-term results it’s generally recommended to get a reinforcement treatment every 9 months.
