For a More Youthful Appearance
Certified instructor and practitioner, Dr. Chan performs the Vampire Facelift® and Facial® procedure using skin-plumping collagen induction therapy, rejuvenating Platelet Rich Plasma and smoothing dermal filler to promote a more youthful look.
We use an Eclipse MicroPen to create controlled micro-punctures into the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production– perfect for smoothing fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks. Micro-channels created by the treatment allow for optimal absorption of topical products and Platelet Rich Plasma. We then use HA fillers to sculpt and soften facial features with the end result being a younger, more beautiful shape. Finally, we inject PRP into the face to promote new growth of blood vessels and fat cells, enhancing the softness created by dermal fillers to make them last longer. The PRP will also promote a rosy, more youthful tone to the skin.
What does it feel like?
Before the Vampire Facelift, you will be numbed with a topical cream to reduce sensitivity. Most patients feel minimal to no discomfort during treatment.
What can I expect?
Immediately after the procedure, you will feel a tightness and warm tingling of the skin, similar to a mild sunburn. Side effects of this treatment are temporary and typically resolve within 2-3 days.
When will I see results?
In this treatment, patients will see an immediate improvement in the shape and fullness of the face, creating a more appealing, youthful look. Your features will not be changed, simply softened. Typically, patients notice an instant glow after the procedure; however, visible improvement may take about 3-4 weeks as the stem cells and growth factors begin to do their work, and by 3 months, the results can be seen fully. These results can last up to a year or more!
Can I go to work immediately after Vampire Facial and Facelift?
Some people do. Hyaluronic acid filler and PRP are injected into the face and, therefore, you may experience mild redness, bruising and/or swelling. It is best to expect the worst and allow yourself time before important events, photos, etc. Swelling resolves in 24-48 hours but a bruise can last up to 2 weeks for some people. It is best to avoid strenuous workouts for 48 hours after the procedure to minimize bruising and swelling.
Are there any side effects?
As the Vampire Facelift® procedure involves injecting a mixture of your blood and placing it back into your own body, the possibility of having side effects and allergic reactions after the procedure is greatly reduced. Having said that, below are some of the common side effects that can occur when dealing with any sorts of facial filler injections: Mild irritation & itching (depending on the sensitivity of your skin) Mild swelling or edema Bruising (caused by the reaction of your skin to the physical injection)
