Vampire Facelift – Face Rejuvenation with PRP

Vampire Facelift, also known as facial rejuvenation with PRP, is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that aims to rejuvenate the skin, primarily focusing on overall facial appearance The name of the treatment might sound strange, but it can transform your skin for the better. It helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, sagging skin, and wrinkles.

The platelets found in your blood can heal the skin and boost the cell regeneration process. Vampire Facelift not only smooths out the wrinkles but boosts collagen production too, which eventually makes your skin look toned, tightened and youthful.

What is Vampire Facelift?

The Vampire Facelift involves drawing a small amount of the patient’s blood, then processing it to concentrate the platelets, which are then re-injected into the facial skin. The blood is used because it contains platelets rich in growth factors that can stimulate skin rejuvenation. After the processing, the nutrient-dense plasma is injected right back into your skin, which over time can give youthful appearance.

What Vampire Facelift Aims for?

Vampire facelift focuses on improving the overall quality, tightness, and texture of the skin instead of merely filling out wrinkles. Vampire Facelift aims to:

  • Diminish fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Improve skin hydration and texture.
  • Get rid of dark circles and bags under the eyes.
  • Restore radiance on your face.
  • It aims to enhance the skin’s texture and tone, contributing to a more youthful appearance
  • May shrink the appearance of pores.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Vampire Facelift?

Almost anyone wishing to look a few years younger can undergo a face rejuvenation with PRP in Dubai. You can be an ideal candidate for this non-surgical facelift technique if:

  • You are 18 years or older (typically more beneficial for those experiencing signs of aging).
  • You have realistic expectations from the PRP Therapy.
  • You are looking to improve overall skin quality, including texture and tone.
  • You are not pregnant.
  • You are not breastfeeding.
  • You don’t want to undergo any invasive procedure to look youthful.

Pre-Op Care

You must follow certain instructions before the surgery to ensure the smoothness of the procedure. Some of the major pre-op instructions include;

  • Limit your sun exposure and wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen, preferably SPF 50 at all times.
  • It is advisable to avoid certain skincare treatments that may irritate the skin or interfere with the procedure, but the specific time frame should be determined by a healthcare professional.
  • Stay away from blood thinners to avoid the risk of extreme bruising.
  • Ensure all prescriptions, particularly those related to the procedure, are filled in advance to avoid any inconvenience or delay in post-treatment care.
  • Avoid exfoliation before the treatment and do not use creams containing Retin A.

How is Vampire Facelift Performed?

A Vampire facelift is a simple lunch-hour procedure that takes about an hour to complete.  It involves the following steps;

Step-1: Initially, a small amount of blood is drawn from your body using a syringe.

Step-2: The centrifugation process separates the blood components, allowing the doctor to extract the platelet-rich plasma, which is key to the treatment’s effectiveness.

Step-3: Your skin is cleansed to remove any dirt, debris, and makeup residue.

Step-4: Afterward, a numbing cream is applied to your skin to minimize the discomfort caused by the injections.

Step-5: The PRP is carefully injected into specific areas of the face that require rejuvenation, following a pattern that maximizes the aesthetic outcome.

Step-6: To conclude the treatment, the surgeon might apply a cooling cream/gel to soothe the skin.


If the vampire facelift is performed in combination with other treatments such as micro-needling, it might take a little longer.

Post-Op Care

Post-treatment care of face rejuvenation with PRP is almost similar to pre-treatment. You must follow all the steps religiously to avoid any complications after the treatment, including:

  • Invest in a good sunscreen and wear it religiously during the daytime.
  • Avoid blood-thinning medications as advised by your doctor to reduce the risk of bleeding and bruising.
  • Avoid any other skincare treatments for at least a month; let your skin heal first.
  • Apply all the topical ointments recommended by your doctor.
  • Avoid harsh scrubbing or exfoliating the treated area for a specified period as advised by your doctor to allow proper healing.


Vampire Facelift or Face Rejuvenation with PRP not only aims at softening your wrinkles but also improves the overall tone and texture of the skin. While initial improvements may be visible soon after the treatment, optimal results typically develop over several weeks as the skin rejuvenates.

Vampire Facelift FAQs

Can I go to work after a vampire facelift?

Yes, you may go back to work after getting a vampire facelift. Most of our patients get this procedure even on their lunch break. This procedure usually doesn't hinder your daily activities. Also, no one can tell if you have gone through a procedure or not. You might get bruising or swelling on your face but that goes away with time.

How long do the results last?

The duration of results can vary, with many patients experiencing benefits for around one year, but this can differ based on individual factors and lifestyle. The positive effects will last longer but general skincare is required which includes a good diet, no skin tanning, no smoking, and use of sunscreen.

Is one session enough?

The number of sessions required can vary based on individual response and desired outcomes, with maintenance treatments potentially needed to sustain results.
