The “Vampire Facelift” involves the use of a patient’s blood, which undergoes a process that isolates platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, then re-applying it to the skin to treat features such as wrinkles and create a younger looking appearance in individuals. The benefits of this procedure are profound, and numerous patients are administering it to improve the appearance of their skin and treat undesired features.

When introduced to the body, the concentrated platelets create a reaction that involves forming clots. The body will react to these clots as if an injury has occurred. It will then deliver nutrients to the treatment site, resulting in new skin tissue under the existing surface of skin. PRP can be used in combination with other injectables or fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm.

Over a period of months, the treated patient can experience benefits in the form of healthier, newer, and younger-looking skin rich in collagen. The platelets also hold various special growth factors, consisting of specific proteins. Only minimal amounts of blood is needed to perform the procedure. At the medical spa, the blood is dawn and processed in a centrifuge to separate the red cells from the platelets and plasma.
