What is a Vampire Facelift?
Similar to a Vampire Facial, the Vampire Facelift involves the patient’s platelet rich plasma to stimulate collagen and elastin fiber. The difference between the two treatments is that the Vampire Facelift also includes injections with platelet rich plasma (PRP) and HA fillers (we use Restylane Injectables) to produce even more dramatic and also immediate results.
PRP injections are ideal to treat the delicate under-eye area, and also to restore lost volume anywhere in the face. PRP will also helpt to improve overall skin texture. Dr. Farah Sultan uses Restylane fillers such as Restylane Lyft, Restylane Contour, and Restylane Defyne to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, and to restore lost volume. The full effects of the Vampire Facelift can be seen within 4-6 weeks after the treatment. Treatment downtime is minimal if any, however, patients can expect bruising, swelling, redness, and tightness for several days. Dr. Farah Sultan recommends avoiding prolonged sun exposure, wearing makeup, and extreme physical exercise for up to 48 hours hours following treatment. She also recommend not to use your regular skin care regimen for up to 72 hours. No retinoids, no vitamin C, no lactic acid. Use a mild facial cleanser, mineral based SPF30 + and mineral based foundation after 12-24 hours post procedure.
