One of the most popular trends amongst the facial rejuvenation procedures is ‘Vampire Facelift. This involves taking the blood out from the client's body which is then placed in a machine called centrifuge, where it is run at high speed to separate the red blood cells. A golden-yellowish colour liquid is extracted which consists of growth factors & essential proteins. It is also responsible for stopping bleeding and healing wounds.

FDA has approved the use of growth factors for many medical procedures and many people, including athletes, are getting these injections to help them in repairing conditions like Tennis Elbow, Arthritis and Tendonitis.

The use of growth factors is not confined to the above-given conditions; rather, it is now being used to reduce the signs of ageing. The reason behind the popularity of this treatment is that artificial fillers only give temporary effects plus they are artificially induced. This, however, stimulates the cell growth resulting in effective and long-lasting results.

Growth Factor therapy or vampire facelift includes harvesting growth factors & essential proteins from the patients own blood and injecting them to the problem areas of the skin. When it is injected in the skin, it stimulates the cells around the injection site, causing them to plump up, therefore increasing their volume. It sends the signals to the other cells to reach to the injection site. Among all the cells, one cell is a fibroblast cell which is responsible for creating collagen. Collagen gives a youthful appearance. With ageing there is reduction in the production of collagen, causing the skin to wrinkle and produce fine lines. As this therapy stimulates the collagen production, it counteracts the process of ageing. Another cell which is important is pre-adipocyte cell which is a cell that converts in fat cells. Fat cells are essential to fill out the fine lines and to contour the face. Vampire facelifts can be used on face specifically around the eyes, nose and mouth for the more radiant appearance.

Many experts say that Vampire Facelift actually helps in blood circulation, and this is why it gives an immediate effect. These injections are combined with dermal filler injections for better outcomes.

Only a professional and a fully-trained medical practitioner should perform the procedure as it involves some risks (though rare) which cannot be overlooked. Dr. Parag Telang is a Mumbai-based cosmetic and plastic surgeon, having years of experience in Vampire facelifts. He is an ideal cosmetic practitioner in the current times. 

Frequently Asked Question (FAQ)

1. How is vampire facelift different from anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections work by relaxing the muscles, whereas vampire facelift restores the volume of the skin by using platelet-rich plasma.
2. What is the cost of a vampire facelift?
The cost of vampire facelift varies from person to person on the basis of the amount of fillers needed to be injected in the process. In some, there is more requirement of the product, which increases the cost of the treatment.
3. Who is the best candidate for vampire facelift?
People who have already lost a lot of skin elasticity are not a very good candidate for vampire facelift. However, before automatically ruling oneself out, it is advisable to take a consultation from an expert. For a person having an excessive turkey neck, laser neck lifts are going to be needed.
4. Will the procedure need any incision on the skin?
No, the procedure is simple and non-surgical that only includes a series of injections to be applied on the face.
5. How many injections does the procedure include?
Depending on the amount and type of the dermal fillers used, approximately 8-10 injections will be used in the procedure.
6. What is the downtime after the procedure and in how many days one can get back to work?
Downtime is almost nothing. One walks into the clinic, gets the procedure done which takes almost an hour and walks out of the clinic to resume daily activities.
7. What are the side-effects of the vampire facelift?
There are no serious side-effects involved in vampire facelift. The needle marks left after injecting the fillers heal immediately. Bruising depends on how thin the person’s skin is. However, we rarely see people’s skin bruising from the procedure.
8. How long will results take to appear?
Results will appear immediately, and a client can see it before leaving the clinic. These results keep improving for up to a few weeks ad the body produces new collagen.
9. How long will the results last?
Studies have shown that the results can last from one to two years, which is great for a non-surgical and safe procedure. The trend of vampire facelift is going to last for a very long time considering the safety and the effectiveness of the procedure.
10. Why is the procedure called a Vampire facelift?
As the procedure involves blood, so it has given the name of vampire facelift.
11. Is the vampire facelift same as ‘liquid facelift’?
A liquid facelift is a term used to describe different types of injectables to increase the skin’s appearance. So, yes, vampire facelift is a type of liquid facelift.
12. What is the difference between vampire facelift and a regular facelift?
Vampire facelift is a non-surgical procedure, and it is used to place the fillers under the skin which lifts the skin from the bony structure creating a youthful appearance. When people get old, the fat under the skin reduces, causing the person to look hollow. A facelift is a surgical procedure used to enhance the appearance of the skin by repositioning the cheeks, jawline and neck. The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia.
13. How is the blood drawn?
Medical staff will take the blood just like in a normal blood test, and then the blood is processed. Platelets, which contain the collagen for healing, are separated from the red blood cells. The separated material is platelet-rich plasma.
