Vampire Facelift® is a unique non-invasive facelift that reduces wrinkles and adds youthful volume to your face. The Vampire Facelift® includes the use of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and Juvederm. PRP contains several different growth factors which have been known to increase or improve cell division. Combining PRP with Juvederm with a specialized technique will enhance and contour the appearance of your face, improving the quality of your skin for a brighter and smoother you.

Kettman Aesthetic Center is the only location in the Cedar Valley that is trained and certified in the Vampire Facelift®.
The Vampire Facelift® uses PRP which is a concentrated source of platelets (also known as ‘liquid gold’) growth factors produced naturally in your own body which stimulates and controls healthy regenerative processes, including collagen and soft tissue remodeling and thereby improves overall skin health and rejuvenation. It is obtained through a small blood draw which is then spun down to the healing elements and is injected back into the skin.
This is a procedure developed for people who want healthy, youthful and rejuvenated skin done quickly and without surgery. The Vampire Facelift® is an outpatient procedure and results can be experienced on the same day with continual benefit of skin regeneration which last for months and even over a year after the procedure.
Areas treated by the Vampire Facelift®:
Lines at corners of the mouth
“Bunny lines” or “bunny nose” — dynamic wrinkles on the nose
Crow’s feet (lines in corners of the eyes)
Overall plumping of the cheeks
A quick procedure that keeps working for several months
Since skin renewal and rejuvenation is using the body’s own active regeneration components, facial skin renewal will continue to improve for about 3 months after the procedure. The overall effects of the Vampire Facelift® can last for over a year.
The Vampire Facelift® produces results in 3 different stages:
Stage 1 (within 4 weeks):
Patients will see incredible volume enhancement and lifting of the face and the beginning of skin brightening.
Stage 2 (1-3 months):
As the PRP stimulates circulation, healing and healthy tissue regeneration; patients will see tone, texture and color improvement.
Stage 3 (3 - 12 months):
During the final stage, results from the injection of PRP is at it's peak and patients will achieve major improvement in tone, texture, tightening, color and lifting.
Although your skin will look better with each week that passes after treatment, results may take a year or possibly longer to reach optimal visibility and will both improve and persist for years. Longevity and outcomes are increased by adhering closely to Kettman Aesthetics Center’s recommended skincare maintenance plan.
