The Vampire Facelift is an incredible treatment combining the science of platelet rich plasma (PRP) with dermal filler to produce anti-aging results. PRP is a concentrated source of platelets, growth factors and cytokines found naturally in your own body that stimulate collagen development and soft tissue remodeling. When used alongside filler, it yields amazing results for patients, including collagen remodeling, tightening, lifting, volumizing and overall brightening of the face and hands. The Vampire Facelift is a patient favorite at Seiler Skin for its minimal discomfort, short post-treatment downtime and incredible results.
WHAT DOES THE VAMPIRE FACELIFT TREAT?
The Vampire Facelift treats a number of concerns, including:
- Volume loss (cheeks, lips, temple, hands)
- Skin texture
- Uneven tone and complexion
- Under eye circles and hollowing
- Fine lines (smile, lip)
- Lower facial laxity
- Jowls and jawline laxity
THE SEILER SKIN DIFFERENCE
Dr. Seiler is well-versed in the Vampire Facelift and other treatments specializing in PRP — in fact, he actually trained directly under Dr. Charles Runels, the creator of the Vampire procedures. After years of administering Vampire treatments himself, Dr. Seiler is now regarded as a leader in the treatments and trains fellow practitioners across the country and around the world.
Another key difference at Seiler Skin is the technology we use. Our line of fillers allow us to effectively treat areas of the face and hands, and work alongside the PRP to produce natural-looking results. Technology has greatly improved over the years, allowing for higher platelet recovery, and we constantly revisit the devices we use to ensure they’re the best out there. Dr. Seiler has done extensive research to ensure the microneedling device we use — SkinPen™ — is the highest quality available and yields the best results. Our team is also trained in the proper technique for drawing your blood and separating out the PRP through our state-of-the-art centrifuges. Not all PRP-obtaining systems are the same, but at Seiler Skin, we constantly revisit the technology we use to make sure it’s the latest and greatest available.
As with every treatment, Dr. Seiler and our team consult with patients to assess their concerns and determine a treatment plan tailored to their needs. We want to ensure that you are getting the best results possible from your experience at our practice, and are always looking for new ways to improve your overall skin health.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR THE VAMPIRE FACELIFT?
- Younger Patients (18 to 30-Years Old)
Patients in this category can benefit from the Vampire Facelift in a more preventative sense, helping to maintain youthful volume and lifted features. The treatment can also improve concerns with skin texture, tone and color
- Middle-Aged Patients (30 to 55-years old)
Patients in this category may begin noticing visible signs of aging and natural volume loss. The Vampire Facelift is a great alternative to more intensive laser treatments and can help maintain healthy looking skin for longer, providing volume and also giving the skin a more youthful glow/complexion.
- Older Patients (55 to 75-years old)
Patients in this category may benefit from this treatment in conjunction with other treatments they are already receiving. A Vampire Facelift is a great non-invasive solution for addressing signs of aging and other skin concerns.
WHAT IS THE VAMPIRE FACELIFT PROCESS LIKE?
Our team begins by applying a medical-grade numbing cream prior to treatment to minimize any discomfort. We then draw a small amount of blood, which is processed in an FDA-approved centrifuge process to separate out the PRP. After inserting filler in the treated areas to restore volume, we then inject PRP in those same areas to help stimulate collagen development, grow fatty tissues (for volume) and improve blood circulation.
Downtime following treatment is fairly short, with most patients experiencing minimal if any bruising or swelling in the days after. Within four weeks, people begin to notice a restoration of volume and improvement in complexion. After one to three months, complexion and texture will continue to improve, while patients also see a noticeable tightening/lifting of the upper and lower face. Optimal results are usually achieved after 6 to 12 months.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE VAMPIRE FACELIFT AND VAMPIRE FACIAL?
The Vampire Facelift uses fillers and injected PRP throughout the face to lift and volumize the face.The Vampire Facial, on other hand, uses medical microneedling with topically applied PRP to treat concerns more visible on the surface of the skin. Unlike at most practices,PRP injections without filler are typically added to the Vampire Facial at Seiler Skin to further stimulate the deeper tissues for volume improvement.
