What is a Vampire Facelift? Is a Vampire Facelift Cost Worth It?

Is your skin starting to show signs of aging? Does it look dull and feel less smooth than before? There are various treatments that can rejuvenate your face and bring back its youthful glow; a vampire facelift is one of them. 

However, with new advancements in skincare technology, there are now other ways to achieve the same results without the pain and hassle of a vampire facelift. Keep reading to learn not only about vampire facelifts, but also about the ElumeStemCell Hydra Serum that provides the same benefits without any of the risks or side effects. 

What is a Vampire Facelift?

A vampire facelift, or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facelift, is a cosmetic procedure that creates a rejuvenated and youthful skin appearance. This procedure uses the patient’s blood for its essential growth and healing properties.

An ingredient called platelet-rich fibrin matrix is derived from the patient’s blood. When mixed with other ingredients, this property can create a natural serum that boosts blood supply and collagen production. It also helps promote increased cell turnover, fatty tissue regeneration, and skin regrowth to fight the signs of aging.

study on PRP found that the procedure significantly improved the skin’s texture compared to saline injection.

How Does it Work?

The vampire facelift procedure starts by drawing a small amount of blood from your arm. In some cases, doctors may choose to inject the face with fillers first to target areas with deep wrinkles or creases.

After collecting blood, the platelets or PRP are separated using a centrifuge. Then, the PRP is mixed with hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, such as Juvederm or Restylane. These fillers promote growth factors to generate new and younger tissues. As a result, it helps restore the youthful volume and shape of your face.

The doctor will use a topical cream to numb the skin before injecting the PRP directly into specific areas of your face.

What are the Risks?

Vampire facelift is generally safe for most people. You can expect minimal side effects after the procedure, but they should not last longer than 72 hours.

The side effects include the following:

  • Itching
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Tingling or a slight burning sensation
  • Bruising
  • Flaking or peeling
  • Reactions to hyaluronic acid fillers (rare)

Pros of Vampire Facelift

  • A vampire facelift is a non-invasive procedure that only requires topical anesthesia.
  • The procedure has minimal downtime and usually lasts about one to two hours.
  • It smooths out fine lines and wrinkles for more elastic, firmer, and younger-looking skin.
  • The PRP used in the procedure boosts collagen production, promotes the growth of new blood vessels, and increases cell turnover.
  • Since PRP is derived from the patient’s blood, there is a lesser chance of an allergic reaction.
  • The procedure is generally safe for all skin types and tones.

Cons of Vampire Facelift

  • A vampire facelift can be mildly painful, even with numbing cream.
  • You will need more than one treatment before the effects become fully visible.
  • Depending on the frequency of the procedure, the results can be temporary.

Where to Get Vampire Facelifts 

Although vampire facelift is a non-invasive procedure, it should be done by a licensed cosmetic professional. Make sure that the procedure is performed at an authorized clinic with the correct equipment and trained staff.

How Much Does a Vampire Facelift Cost?

The vampire facelift cost ranges from $1,000 to $2,500. Depending on the amount of filler required, the procedure may cost up to $3,000. These types of cosmetic procedures are not covered by insurance.

How Long Do Results Last? 

You will notice immediate results from the filler, such as plumper skin, right after the procedure. Meanwhile, the evenness and glow from the PRP take two to three weeks to become visible. The results of vampire facelifts are not permanent and may last for 12 to 18 months.

How Often Can You Get One?

The frequency of the procedure depends on your needs, preferences, and budget. You can achieve the best results after three treatments, which should be done a month apart. For more benefits, you can follow up with your doctor for potential maintenance sessions.

Is it Worth It?

Vampire facelift is a procedure worth trying, especially if you have skin aging concerns. This non-surgical procedure helps you achieve long-term rejuvenating effects. A vampire facelift will make your skin appear tighter and youthful by boosting the skin’s natural collagen production.

Alternatives to Vampire Facelifts

The vampire facelift offers results desired by many who are concerned about the health and appearance of their skin. However, for many factors, the vampire facelift may not be the best option. There are nonsurgical procedures such as fillers to soften lines and restore volume. There are surgical procedures such as complete or mini facelifts.

Thankfully, there is also the Hydra Serum treatment which uses regenerative properties from stem cell extracts to promote elastin production, stimulate collagen production and increase cell turnover. This has been viewed as a natural solution to Botox as it is able to provide similar results while using natural ingredients. The Hydra Serum is an at-home option for those seeking the results of vampire facelifts without the high cost, the risks, the down time and needing to go to a professional for treatment.

What is ElumeStemCell Hydra Serum?

The Hydra Serum is a concentrated skincare product made up of regenerative properties from natural amniotic tissue including cytokines, growth factors and matrix proteins. The polypeptides in the Hydra Serum help lift and tighten skin. Because these properties come from a natural source, the body is able to better absorb them and can result in improved skin quality. 

The Hydra Serum uses a unique applicator which allows the Hydra Serum to be delivered deeper into the skin through nanotechnology. The nanotechnology encourages cellular growth and collagen production while delivering the restorative nutrients from the serum. This treatment is beneficial to those who struggle with acne scars, fine lines, dark spots, or other skin imperfections.

Difference Between Vampire Facelift and Hydra Serum

A vampire facelift requires a professional appointment with a dermatologist or surgeon. It includes drawing your blood, treating your blood, numbing your face, and an injection of a mixture of stem cells and growth factors from your treated blood, and sometimes fillers as well. Because of the process, there is some down time after treatment for the skin to heal. There is also potential risk of side effects including: burning, bruising, redness, itching, swelling, and more. 

The Hydra Serum offers the same benefits as the vampire facelift: increase the production of collagen to enhance the skin’s quality, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, promote cellular turnover and stimulate the formation of new skin cells, collagen, and elastin, BUT all from your home. 

With the Hydra Serum, you do not need an appointment with a professional; you use the Hydra Serum Applicator to treat your skin yourself! The Hydra Serum treatment is noninvasive; it does not require numbing, a blood draw, or any of the side effects of the vampire facelift such as burning, bruising, redness, itching, or swelling. 

The Hydra Serum Process

How Does it Work?

The Hydra Serum treatment is a simple process offering widespread benefits. 

Below are the steps in the Hydra Serum treatment:

  1. Cleanse your face.
  2. Derma roll to create micro channels in your skin.
  3. Prepare either the mesh capsule or microneedle capsule for application and insert into the applicator. Using the applicator, apply Hydra Serum all over your face or desired treatment area.
  4. Allow Hydra Serum to absorb into your skin for 15-30 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.
  5. Apply Daily Illuminating Face Serum.
  6. Finish treatment by applying your favorite moisturizer.
