The only people who don’t want to look younger are, well, people who are already young (for now).
If the idea of getting a surgical facelift seems a little bit scary, it’s ironic that something called a Vampire Facelift® is actually less risky, less impactful, and yes, less expensive.
The problem is that over time, skin all over tends to loosen, as the tissue below it loses some of its original healthy ‘structure.’ Frowning about it in the bathroom mirror only accentuates the sagging skin and wrinkles.

The good news is, there’s new hope through Regenerative Medicine.
A Vampire Facelift involves adding a combination of PRFM and biologically-safe filler into various areas of the face. This restores tone and surface evenness by lifting the flesh of the face away from the skull. The process restores some of that nice plumpy volume, and helps improve the look of your skin.
The healthful serum is applied in a series of injections which are pretty much painless after topical numbing agents are applied.
So, nothing is technically being ‘lifted.’ A better analogy in this case might be a balloon being blown up, as it gets fuller, smoother and shinier.
A more natural way to look more youthful.
Since it’s derived from the growth and healing factors produced naturally in the body, Regenerative Medicine procedures like Vampire Facelifts are often considered to be a more ‘natural’ process compared to some other cosmetic or medical procedures.
So what is this PRFM?
Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM) is a thicker and longer lasting version of the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), from which it’s converted. PRP in turn is derived from the person’s own blood, which is drawn the same way as a blood test. The use of one’s blood, if you haven’t guessed, is where the ‘vampire’ terminology came from.
Plus this ‘biological product’ helps stimulate collagen production – an important protein in the body that among other things, provides ‘structure’ that keeps skin looking firm. It also helps circulation, which helps give a face that fresh, warm glow of youth.
You’ll be hearing more about PRP.
It’s been found that the natural growth agents in PRP can also help regenerate tissue, in ways that might have been considered magical just a decade ago.
Regenerative Medicine in general, and PRP in particular, offers benefits for an ever-increasing variety of medical and cosmetic conditions. PRP injections are used to help heal and repair wounds and injuries sustained by professional athletes.
