At Artisan’s Rejuvenation Spa, we offer multiple approaches to skin rejuvenation, including the PRP Vampire Facelift®, one of the most popular and proven skin rejuvenation treatments on the cosmetic market. This innovative technique blends dermal fillers with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the patient’s own body to optimize results without surgery or downtime.
What is PRP?
Used in several fields of medicine over several years, PRP is derived from the patient’s own blood and is used to help generate new, healthy tissues in injured or damaged areas of the body. When used as part of the Vampire Facelift®, PRP can help rejuvenate the skin by:
- Improving circulation to help restore a youthful glow to your skin
- Stimulate the production of new collagen to add structure and strength to your skin, helping it improve over time
- Producing new fatty tissue to help your facial profile maintain more youthful contours and shape
PRP is created from a small sample of the patient’s blood that is taken before treatment. The blood is then spun through a sterile centrifuge process, separating it into its individual components. The plasma, or liquid portion of the blood, is infused with more platelets than normal, which contain several growth factors. While dermal fillers provide immediate lift and shape, PRP uses the body’s own healing factors to help maintain results over time.
What is the PRP Vampire Facelift®?
Popular among celebrities and gaining traction worldwide, this proven skin rejuvenation technique can help you achieve multiple aesthetic goals, including:
- Revitalizing dull or gray skin tones
- Restoring shape to facial contours that have begun to droop and sag with age
- Smoothing rough skin texture that can occur as the skin ages
The PRP Vampire Facelift® typically utilizes both dermal fillers and PRP to provide a lifting and tightening effect to the skin without any incisions or extensive downtime. During the procedure, the hyaluronic acid of dermal fillers helps provide immediate volume underneath the skin to elevate and smooth out visible signs of aging. Once a more natural, youthful shape has been created in the face, the PRP isolated from the patient’s own blood is then injected into the face.
Is the PRP Vampire Facelift® Safe?
Dermal fillers have proven safety profiles with a long history of safe treatment. As PRP utilizes the body’s own resources, it is easily recognized and processed without any major risks. As with all injectable treatments, slight bruising, redness, and swelling may temporarily develop at injection sites. Certain blood disorders or other contraindicating medical conditions may require further evaluation by our medical team, which will be discussed during your consultation.
Results may vary, and as PRP works gradually underneath the skin, it may take two to three months before full results are visible. While visible signs of aging may return over time, your smoother, younger-looking skin can last for up to one or two years and can be easily maintained through regular treatment and a good skincare regimen.
At Artisan’s Rejuvenation Med Spa, we use PRP in our Vampire Facelift® and Vampire Facial® procedures to help revitalize and heal the skin from the inside out.

What is the Vampire Facial®?
A medical spa favorite, the Vampire Facial® blends the benefits of micro-needling and PRP into one gentle and effective treatment for maximum results and no downtime. The Vampire Facial® begins like a regular micro-needling treatment as a pen-like device with several tiny needles in the tip is moved across the skin. These small, sterile needles penetrate to a specific depth below the skin surface, stimulating the skin’s natural healing process.
During micro-needling, a response known as Collagen Induction Therapy occurs, which strengthens existing collagen fibers in the skin and also helps correct collagen loss as a result of aging. After micro-needling, the skin is gently exfoliated and can better absorb beneficial products and PRP.
Is There Any Recovery Time?
Treated areas may appear slightly red or flushed, but this common side effect typically subsides after a day or two. The Vampire Facial® is a safe, effective and low-risk treatment that can create dynamic results without the extensive healing and downtime of other skin rejuvenation procedures.
During your consultation with our medical team, factors such as your health, medical history, treatment expectations and aesthetic goals will be taken into consideration to determine if the Vampire Facial® is right for you. Results may vary.
