Vampire Treatment with autologous blood

As with mesotherapy, the body's own platelet-rich blood plasma (PRP) is injected into the skin. This well-tolerated procedure successfully stimulates cell renewal and new tissue formation. Result: Wrinkles are smoothed out and the skin looks fresher and more youthful!

Is a vampire facelift (PRP therapy) an option for me?

A vampire facelift (PRP therapy) may be indicated under the following conditions:

  • Your skin has been damaged by the sun, is thin and wrinkled.
  • You have aesthetically disturbing scars (e.g. acne, operations, etc.).
  • You have fine, unsightly facial wrinkles (e.g. around the eyelids or lips).
  • You desire smoother, more even skin.
  • Stretch marks (e.g. after weight fluctuations or pregnancy)
  • Hair loss

Treatment with autologous blood (PRP therapy) cannot wholly eliminate scars or stretch marks, but it can make them less noticeable.

What does the preparation for a vampire facelift (PRP therapy) involve?

Before a vampire facelift (PRP therapy), a comprehensive personal consultation takes place with one of our specialists. He or she will discuss what you wish for and what you expect from the treatment and at the same time will explain the possibilities and the limitations of this method. After the anamnesis (survey of your general state of health and any previous illnesses), the specialist will explain the procedure and any treatment alternatives. If you then decide to go ahead with a vampire facelift (PRP therapy), he will plan the course of treatment together with you and inform you of possible risks and side effects.

Vampire facelift (PRP therapy) injections cause microscopic injuries and irritations to the skin. It is therefore not advisable under the following conditions:

  • Skin irritations and eczema
  • Skin infections
  • Mycotic infections
  • Active acne
  • Active rosacea
  • Psoriasis
  • Skin cancer and preliminary stages
  • Prominent birthmarks
  • Warts
  • Wounds

How precisely does treatment with a vampire facelift (PRP therapy) proceed?

Before your vampire facelift (PRP therapy), we pre-treat the affected areas with a local anesthetic cream to guarantee you the least painful therapy possible.

To obtain the platelet-rich plasma, we draw your blood and centrifuge it. This removes the unwanted red and white blood cells, while the desired platelets are enriched to about 2.5 times their natural concentration. The platelets contain numerous growth factors and messenger substances that promote tissue regeneration on being released into the body. Using very fine cannulas, we then inject the PRP into the skin areas to be treated.

Are there risks and side effects associated with a vampire facelift (PRP therapy)?

Yes, even during a vampire facelift (PRP therapy) temporary undesirable side effects may occur. Complications, however, are extremely rare.

  • Following the vampire facelift, small wheals usually become visible at the injection sites, and then subside over the next few hours and days.
  • There is sometimes a slight bruising at the puncture sites.
  • Redness and swelling in the first days after the vampire facelift are normal. The redness can be well concealed with makeup the day after the treatment.
  • Healing usually takes a few days. If your treatment is on Friday, you can easily go back to work on Monday, although slight redness may be visible for up to a week.
  • The needles and the PRP injection cause microscopic injuries of the skin and provoke an inflammatory reaction in the course of wound healing. This is what creates a risk of so-called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which causes the skin to darken due to an overproduction of melanin. To reduce that risk to a minimum, we recommend that after a vampire facelift (PRP therapy) you consistently wear sunscreen with a sun protection factor of 50+ for the first two to four weeks and avoid substances that make the skin sensitive to UV rays.

What should I do to prepare myself for a vampire facelift (PRP therapy)?

There is nothing special that you need to do before the vampire facelift. We ask only that you refrain from wearing makeup on the day of the treatment and that you arrive for your appointment without makeup. In the event of certain pre-existing conditions (e.g. herpes on the lips), some special preparations may be indicated. We will be happy to inform you about all details of your individual treatment during your personal consultation.

What should I be aware of after a vampire facelift (PRP therapy)?

  • On the day of treatment, please wash your skin with water only and apply a non-perfumed, lightly moisturizing day cream.
  • On the first day following treatment you can use makeup to conceal possible redness of the skin.
  • Two to three days after the vampire facelift, you can once again use most skin care products, in particular creams containing vitamins A and C.
  • In the first two to four weeks following PRP therapy we ask you to consistently protect the treated skin areas from the sun. We recommend sunscreen with a very high sun protection factor (50+). We also ask you to avoid all substances (medications, creams, etc.) that sensitize the skin to UV rays during this time. In this way, you can help reduce the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation to a minimum.

When will the positive effect of a vampire facelift be seen (PRP therapy)?

You will see the first positive effects of the vampire facelift (PRP therapy) within one to three months of the treatment. Usually, however, it takes several sessions to achieve the desired outcome. Eliminating fine lines and wrinkles or treating dark circles usually requires three sessions at intervals of four to six weeks. For sun-damaged or scarred skin, we recommend three to four treatments, also at intervals of four to six weeks. Skin ages inexorably over time. For a fresh, youthful appearance, we therefore recommend PRP therapy be done every year.

What does a vampire facelift (PRP therapy) cost?

The cost of a vampire lift depends on the number of areas of skin to be treated and on the number of individual treatments required. We will be happy to provide you with a quote for your individual treatment plan at Aesthea during your personal consultation.
