Why the Vampire Facelift?

Cosmetic surgery can remove excess skin and give you a younger appearance but a surgical facelift may be more then you want or need at this time.

Injectable fillers can be used to lift the skin away from bone restoring volume and shape to the face but they do little to improve skin tone and texture.

If you want to look more youthful but are not ready to go under the knife and fillers alone are not giving you the boost you need …a Vampire procedure may be right for you.

The Process of Vampire Facelift

First, Dr. Falcone will use a hyaluronic acid filler (Restylane or Juvederm) to create a beautiful shape to the face. The hyaluronic acid fillers are injected in a very specific way to keep the shape looking natural.

The technique used for the filler injection portion of the Vampire Facelift were taught to Dr. Falcone by the inventor of the Vampire Facelift procedure, Dr. Charles Runels.

Once the hyaluronic acid filler injection is completed, a small amount of blood will be drawn from the arm and used to isolates growth factors from the blood sample using the Magellan device. You can watch your own blood being turned into a smaller fraction of platelet rich growth factors in sixteen minutes using the Magellan device.

When the platelet rich growth factors are ready, Dr. Falcone will use a numbing cream and a small needle or cannula to inject them gently into the face. The process of injection activates cells to regenerate tissues creating new collagen and blood vessels for a more youthful glow.
