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)

Do You Show These 3 Signs of Aging?
- Skin color becomes more gray because of less blood flow.
- Facial Shape becomes collapsed and droopy as muscle and collagen decrease.
- Skin texture becomes less smooth. As a result, the person looks "worn", or "tired" or "droopy." The lively, rosy hue (seen plainly in playing children of every skin color and in young adults) fades to a dull gray.
Why the Vampire?
With many ways to rejuvenate the face, why look for a better way?
Cosmetic surgery can remove excess skin and make the person appear younger. But, a surgical facelift can be more than what's needed for some people (especially when loss of shape without extra skin is the main problem).
Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers lift the skin away from the bone to restore youthful volume and shape. But HA fillers can cause problems near the eye. Also, the injector of HA fillers can chase a wrinkle and create a shape that looks foreign to the person's face or even foreign to this planet.
The HA fillers do little to improve skin tone and texture.
Unlike most procedures, the Vampire Facelift (R) offers a way of both restoring shape, and improving tone and texture, as well as literally rejuvenating new and younger tissue!
Here's how it's done...
4 Steps of the Vampire Facelift® Procedure
First, the injector (1) uses HA fillers to create a beautiful shape. (2) Then, the physician isolates growth factors from the patient's blood. (3) When these growth factors enter the face (injected by the physician), then muti-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).
1. Creating a Beautiful & Natural Shape
In the first part of the Vampire FaceLift® procedure, the physician uses an Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler (like Restylane or Juvederm) in a very specific way to sculpt a younger appearing face--while still keeping the shape natural.
Providers of the Vampire Facelift (R) procedure take into account the mathematics of beauty as defined by much research (starting with the notebooks of Lonardo da Vinci) to avoid at all costs creating an unnatural shape. These ideas about the HA fillers are not commonly known even among the best of cosmetic surgeons and constitute part of the intellectual property protected by the trademarked name (Vampire Facelift®).
After creating a younger, natural shape, then the physician harvests from the woman's own blood (hence the name Vampire) growth factors that her body would normally use to heal damaged tissue.
2) Isolating & Activating the Magic from Your Blood
First, the physician draws about 2 teaspoons of blood.
Then, using a centrifuge, the physician isolates platelets from that blood (platelet-rich plasma or PRP)--all within about 10 minutes in the office!
Then she "activates" those platelets to cause the release from the platelets of at least 8 growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue.
These growth factors work like magic to cause increased collagen & new blood flow. To rejuvenate new skin, these growth factors must be put back into your face.
(3) Injecting the Magic into Your Face
Using numbing cream and a very small needle (for almost no pain), the physician injects the woman's own growth factors back into her face in a particular way. These growth factors then activate multipotent stem cells already in the skin (tricking them into "thinking" there's been an injury and new younger tissue should be generated).
(4) Recovery & Maintenance with the Healing & Regeneration properties of Altar™ an official Vampire Skin Therapy™
The patented ingredient in Altar™, SBD-4, works synergistically to enhance the effects of the previous steps and to help supply blood flow to fragile new growth of healthy pleuripotent stem cells.
Only certified providers of the Vampire Procedures (Facelift® & Facial®) offer this very important 4th step.
