Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Vampire PRP Facelift®?

The Vampire PRP Facelift® is a licensed trademark procedure developed by the Cellular Medicine Association. These patented procedures follow strict safety protocol and use Health Canada approved equipment.

The Vampire PRP Facelift is a procedure that addresses the skin laxity, hollowness, and fine lines that cause you to have an older appearance.  This procedure combines the use of PRP and dermal fillers. The two main advantages are:
  • Costs are much less
  • Less fillers used
  • PRP will stimulate your own collagen formation and delay your aging process.

The Vampire PRP Facelift in Vancouver is a treatment that combines a dermal filler with platelet-rich plasma to sculpt the face. This procedure produces tighter, plumper, and lifted skin tissues which lasts longer than using a dermal filler alone. This nonsurgical facelift addresses skin laxity, wrinkles, dull skin tone, and uneven texture.

Which areas can I treat?

You can treat any areas that a dermal filler can treat including:

  • Dark sunken eye trough
  • Hollow cheeks
  • Fine lines
  • Naslabial folds
  • Chin

How soon will I see results?

You will see lifting and volumizing right away and optimal results will be reached in a few weeks as your tissue require time to regenerate new growth factors.

How long does it last?

The Vampire PRP Facelift can last longer than dermal filler alone. When the dermal filler starts to dissolve, the PRP is still generating new cells to build collagen and elastin, producing a long lasting effect. The length of time depends on your metabolism and lifestyle factors.
