Vampire Facelift, a patented procedure developed by Dr. Charles Runels, utilizes Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to restore the shape, and improve the tone and texture of the skin of the face.

After creating a younger, natural shape with Hyaluronic Acid (HA), we isolate Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) from the woman’s own blood. We draw a small amount of blood from the patient’s own arm, then spin the blood in a centrifuge to separate out the Platelet-Rich Plasma(PRP). Platelets are small cells that contain growth factors that body would normally use to heal damaged tissue. Next, we inject the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) into age-affected (collagen-poor) areas of the face. Because Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) contains growth factors, it can accelerate the repair and regeneration of collagen. The result is a more youthful appearance.

How Vampire Facelift Works?

Many people have heard of using Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections for treating injuries. The procedure has gained popularity among several pro athletes. When it is applied cosmetically, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) uses many of the same principles. Collagen declines as we age— it begins to shrink, triggering a tightening and strengthening of the skin. So when it is restored, it’s a veritable fountain of youth. In the Vampire Facelift procedure, injecting Platelet-Rich Plasma(PRP) causes a mild inflammation that triggers healing. A number of enzymes and growth factors are released at the age-affected site. These components attract stem cells to repair the area. As a result, new collagen begins to develop. The result is a remodeling of the tissue to a healthier and younger look.

A Simple, Safe Procedure with Great Results

The Vampire Facelift procedure takes approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour. The cost is $1500. Many find that the results last for one to two years before a follow-up procedure is necessary.
