Erase Sun-Damaged Skin With a Vampire Facial

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy has been used for decades in orthopedics and sports medicine. But did you know the minimally invasive treatment can enhance your appearance, too? If you’re not pleased with what you see in the mirror or photos as time goes by or feel a lot younger than you look, you may want to consider the Vampire Facial®

Also known as the Vampire Facelift®, this treatment uses a blend of PRP and fillers to help restore youthful radiance in aging and sun-damaged skin. It only requires a short, in-office appointment and invites lasting results.

With his extensive training and experience, Robert Rubin, MD at Improving Your Health in Naples and Tampa, Florida, is an expert at performing the Vampire Facial. Read on to learn more about this cutting-edge facial treatment and how it might benefit you.

How the Vampire Facial works

The Vampire Facial combines the science of fillers like Juvederm and Restylane with platelets from your own blood. At the start of your appointment, a small amount of your blood is extracted — which is where the “vampire” name comes from — and then spun in a centrifuge to create PRP. 

Then a blend of PRP and filler is injected back into your skin at strategic places using tiny needles. Through this process, Dr. Rubin can essentially reshape your face and upper neck region to restore a youthful glow and aesthetic.

Benefits of the Vampire Facial

Fillers add plumpness to your skin and PRP can stimulate the growth of new, healthier tissues. These are important benefits for sun-damaged skin because UV rays accelerate the aging process, making way for shallowness, sagging, and wrinkles.

While Vampire Facial results vary from person to person, you might enjoy a variety of benefits, such as:

As a bonus, the Vampire Facial is only minimally invasive and devoid of the risks and lengthy downtime associated with cosmetic surgery. Right after your treatment, you can get back to your usual daily activities. 

When you will see results 

Vampire Facial results start appearing immediately and last an average of 12-16 months. Even though the treatment is fairly new, because PRP has been used so long for other purposes it’s generally considered quite safe.
