What Can a Vampire Facelift Do for You?
The Vampire Facelift targets two underlying mechanisms of facial aging: volume and collagen loss. To restore youthful volume, hyaluronic acid is used to fill in flat and hollow areas around the eyes and cheeks. From there, blood plasma is injected to stimulate the production of fresh collagen and elastin, encouraging your body to repair aging skin from the inside out.
During your appointment for a non-surgical facelift in Michigan at Forum Health, our highly trained injector uses hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers to create a beautiful shape that adheres to your aesthetic goals. Then, we will draw blood and isolate the growth factors using a centrifuge.
We then inject these growth factors back into the face, at which point the multi-potent stem cells become activated to grow new tissue. This new tissue includes new collagen, new fatty tissue (for smoothness), and new blood vessels (for a healthy glow).

What to Expect
The Vampire Facial® procedure, using a specific technique for micro-needing, followed by application of blood plasma.
The Vampire Facelift® procedure involves using Juvederm to restore shape followed by injecting blood plama below the dermis the help restore color and texture along with enhancing a normal shape.
The pluripotent stem cells then develop into new collagen, new blood vessels, and new fatty tissue trying to “repair” the skin that was never injured! The effects of the procedure improve for 2 to 3 months and last for at least 1 to 2 years!
Vampire’s are kind of a scary visual, so we understand why someone would have this question. However, this treatment got its nickname because it uses blood plasma, which involves using a patient’s own blood to stimulate collagen (after it’s drawn from your body and spun through a centrifuge). The name may sound intimidating, but the results are exceptional!
The main difference between a Vampire Facelift and dermal fillers is in their use of blood plasma. Whereas dermal fillers use HA and offer tremendous benefits in their own right, a Vampire Facelift uses your own body’s natural growth factors to help stimulate collagen at a higher rate and allow the patient to recover more quickly.
A Vampire Facial is a safe treatment for most patients. However, because the treatment utilizes your own blood, we recommend not using a Vampire Facial if you have any disorder that requires using a blood thinner. These conditions can include hepatitis C, blood cancer, cardiovascular disease, HIV, or Aids. Additionally, patients suffering from skin cancer, infection, or inflammation in the treatment area should avoid a Vampire Facial.
Because a Vampire Facelift uses HA fillers, you can expect to see noticeable results almost immediately after treatment. These results will become even more noticeable after about 2 weeks, once your initial swelling subsides. Your results will continue to improve for about 2 to 3 months following your Vampire Facial, with full results lasting 1 to 2 years!
Unlike similar injectable treatments, patients only need 1 visit at our offices in Rochester, Novi, Shelby, or Clarkston in order to see full results! If you’re looking to maintain the results of your Vampire Facelift, we recommend visiting roughly 1 to 2 years following your initial treatment. You can continue to receive these maintenance treatments on a yearly basis.
