It sounds creepy, doesn’t it? But it is not scary, it’s just a catchy name. In fact, the Vampire FaceLift is changing the way we approach facial rejuvenation. It is not a new type of facelift, but a treatment option we can add to your facial procedure to speed recovery and enhance results. The term “vampire” is a humorous reference to the fact that this treatment is made up of blood platelets from your own body.
It’s called platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, and nothing could be more natural. PRP is rich in healing and growth factors that promote collagen growth and cell regeneration. Vampire Facelift harnesses the power of PRP to deliver smoother, fuller, healthier-looking skin. Heal your skin from within thanks to the Vampire Facial.
What is The Vampire Facelift?
The Vampire Facelift is a skin treatment that pulls from your body’s valuable source of PRP to heal and rejuvenate the skin. The Vampire FaceLift can be used in conjunction with facial surgeries and also with in-office treatments. Depending on your procedure and aesthetic goals, we may inject the PRP serum into deeper skin layers, or we may massage it into the face as part of a laser or microneedling treatment.
To perform Vampire Facelift, we must first prepare your sample of PRP. At the beginning of your facial procedure, the surgeon draws a small amount of your blood. The sample is spun in a centrifuge, to separate platelets and plasma from the red and white blood cells. The result is a serum of concentrated platelets. The serum is straw-colored, not “bloody” looking, because the red blood cells are gone.
PRP has been popular with orthopedic surgeons and athletic trainers for years to speed healing. Now, PRP is getting the attention it deserves within the cosmetic enhancement community. At Southern Surgical Arts, we are excited about the many benefits and potential uses for this treatment. We see the Vampire FaceLift as just the beginning!

Who is a Good Candidate?
