What is a Vampire Facelift?

A Vampire Facelift® is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure designed to rejuvenate facial skin. This innovative treatment involves the use of injections containing platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood, combined with a temporary dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid. The procedure gets its intriguing name from the use of blood as a key component in the rejuvenation process. Many people experience immediate visible improvements in their skin'’'s appearance, noticing a more youthful and refreshed look right after the PRP facelift. 

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a component of your blood that plays a crucial role in healing and regeneration. Plasma, the liquid portion of your blood, carries various cells, including platelets. Platelets are specialized cells that contain growth factors essential for tissue repair and help your blood clot to prevent bleeding. PRP is a concentrated form of blood that consists primarily of these growth factors, platelets, and plasma, excluding other blood components. 

We will collect PRP by drawing your blood and putting it through a centrifuge. This will spin your blood at high speeds to separate your blood into different components:

  • Platelets and plasma.
  • White blood cells.
  • Red blood cells.

Once your blood finishes spinning in the centrifuge, we will remove the platelet-rich plasma component to be injected into your face. There are products like the X-Shot™ that can be added to the PRP that provide longer lasting results.

Why is a Vampire Facelift done?

A Vampire Facelift is an alternative treatment to a surgical facelift. Platelet-rich plasma is known to:

  • Drive production of new skin cells and better blood flow.
  • Encourage the growth of collagen (a protein that provides structure to your skin).
  • Increase elastin production (a protein that allows tissue to stretch).

A PRP facelift may help:

  • Make your skin look healthier.
  • Enhance the contour your face.
  • Improve the texture of your skin.
  • Reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Make your skin look plumper.
  • Reduce acne scars.

What is the difference between a Vampire Facelift and a Vampire Facial?

A Vampire Facelift (PRP facelift) combines injections of platelet-rich plasma with hyaluronic acid filler. During a vampire facial, we spread PRP over your face. Then we use micro-needling or tiny pricks that help your face absorb the plasma. Vampire facials target issues on the surface of your skin, including:

  • Acne scars.
  • Fine lines.
  • Large pores.
  • Pigmentation.
  • Rough texture.

How should I prepare for a Vampire Facelift?

Before a Vampire Facelift (PRP facelift), you'll have a consultation with Dr. Soni. He'll ask about your goals and your health history to see if you're a good candidate for the procedure. A PRP facelift isn't recommended if you:

  • Have a blood condition that causes excessive bleeding or difficulty clotting.
  • Have hepatitis C or HIV.
  • Have skin cancer.
  • Take a blood thinner.

If you're a good candidate for a PRP facelift, Dr. Soni will examine your skin and talk about what you want to achieve from the procedure. If you decide to go ahead with a PRP facelift, he may ask you to:

  • Minimize your sun exposure and avoid tanning for several weeks before the procedure.
  • Avoid blood thinners, like nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), aspirin and herbal supplements, for a week before the procedure.
  • Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated in the week before the procedure.
  • Arrive at your appointment with clean skin and no makeup.

What happens during a Vampire Facelift?

During a Vampire Facelift procedure, we will:

  • Apply numbing cream to your face.
  • Withdraw some blood, usually from your arm.
  • Spin the blood in a centrifuge machine to separate the PRP.
  • Inject specific areas of your face with filler.
  • Inject PRP into your face using a small needle.

How long does a Vampire Facelift take?

A PRP facelift usually takes one to two hours.

Is a Vampire Facelift painful?

You won't feel pain during a Vampire Facelift because we will numb your skin. You may feel light to mild pain once the numbing cream wears off.

What happens after a Vampire Facelift?

After a PRP facelift, you may experience mild discomfort and bruising for a couple of days, up to a week. You should be able to go about your day with caution after the procedure.

You can apply ice packs wrapped in a towel to your face as needed to reduce swelling. You can take over-the-counter pain relievers as directed. When you go to bed, elevate your head and try to sleep on your back. We will give you specific instructions to care for your skin after the procedure. 

What are the benefits of a Vampire Facelift?

Benefits of a Vampire Facelift (PRP facelift) include:

  • Less pain and a shorter recovery time than a traditional surgical facelift.
  • Fewer possible risks than surgery.
  • Quicker results than with a traditional facelift.
  • Feeling more confident about your appearance.

How successful is a Vampire Facelift?

Studies are limited when it comes to calculating the success of vampire facelifts. The benefits of PRP may promote improvement in your skin texture and it works as a treatment to reduce wrinkles.

If you choose to try a PRP facelift, be sure to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist about the benefits and risks.

What are the side effects of a Vampire Facelift?

Side effects of a PRP facelift could include:

  • Swelling.
  • Mild pain and tenderness.
  • Tingling.
  • Changes to your natural skin tone (red or dark brown).
  • Bruising.
  • Itching.

Rarely, you may experience a reaction to the hyaluronic acid filler, which could include:

  • Bumps (nodules) form at the injection sites.
  • Pain.
  • Persistent swelling.

A more serious risk is that a provider could inject filler into a blood vessel. This can cause tissue in the area to die.

Look for an experienced provider, like Dr. Soni who has been training doctors for decades, to minimize complications from the procedure.

What is the recovery time for a Vampire Facelift?

Recovery time after a Vampire Facelift (PRP facelift) tends to be short. Your surgeon will give you instructions to take care of your skin and decrease your recovery time. Some aftercare instructions may include avoiding:

  • Sun exposure.
  • Heavy lifting.
  • Strenuous exercise.
  • Using heavy creams or moisturizers on your skin.
  • Washing your face or wearing makeup for a day after the procedure.

If you experience swelling, you can try using an ice pack. Acetaminophen (Tylenol®) can also help reduce any pain.

When can I go back to my normal activities after a Vampire Facelift?

You can usually return to your regular activities immediately. We will provide guidance suitable for your recovery.

When will I see results after a Vampire Facelift?

After a PRP facelift, you'll notice plumping from the filler right away. You'll begin to see smoothing from the PRP after about two weeks.

How long does a Vampire Facelift last?

The final results from a Vampire Facelift can last from about 12 to 18 months. Some providers recommend three sets of injections, one per month for three months, to prolong the effects.

When should I call my healthcare provider?

Call us right away if you have any of these symptoms after a Vampire Facelift (PRP facelift):

  • Bleeding.
  • Excessive bruising.
  • Pain.
  • Swelling that doesn't go away.


A Vampire Facelift (PRP facelift) may sound like a scary movie. It's really a nonsurgical way to rejuvenate the skin on your face. PRP facelifts use injections of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) along with a dermal filler rather than a traditional facelift surgery. There are usually minimal side effects and a shorter recovery time. Researchers have not yet done extensive studies on PRP treatments for facial rejuvenation.
