Have you Heard of the Vampire FaceLift?
Sounds pretty scary, but once you know what the noninvasive procedure involves, you won’t think it’s scary anymore.
A Vampire FaceLift is a fairly new procedure that is really just clever marketing. Taking advantage of the current “Twilight” phenomenon, it’s really just the name for a type of nonsurgical procedure that features SELPHYL™, what the manufacturer describes as.
“An autologous platelet and fibrin processing system, which uses your own blood to prepare a product enabling the administration of your concentrated platelets and tissue building elements (Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix or PRFM).”
Get it? It’s kind of like an Injectable Filler, but instead of injecting a substance like hyaluronic acid or collagen, the procedure involves withdrawing a bit of your own blood so that it can be processed to concentrate the amount of platelets and other elements vital in tissue building. This processed blood is then reinjected to achieve the same volume-boosting results that any other injectable filler achieves, making the skin smoother and reshaping facial contours.
Although it has been approved by the FDA, SELPHYL™ isn’t available in Canada right now, so you won’t be able to get a Vampire Facelift in Toronto as of yet. And just like Latisse, there’s no word from Health Canada when it will be available. But don’t worry – there are plenty of other injectable fillers that have been around for far longer than SELPHYL™ and boast many of the same benefits, like Juvederm, Restylane, Teosyal and Perlane.

How does the Vampire Lift compare to a Hyaluronic Acid based filler?
The Vampire Lift essentially will restructure and reformat the dermis of your skin to improve the overall texture and tone. It will reduce fine lines and “crepiness” seen on the skin. Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm add volume. Both fillers and the Vampire Lift can work in conjunction to add volume and rejuvenate the skin, and your overall look.
What is the downtime?
Usually the only downtime that you could experience with the Vampire Lift is bruising. Depending on your body, and if you do get a bruise, it would last a couple days to a week. The bruise can be covered by mineral make-up to camouflage it. Not all patients experience bruising though. You may experience a bit of swelling too, and the majority of the swelling subsides within 24-72 hours. We suggest if you have a big event not to do any injections a week before.
What areas are suitable for the Vampire Lift?
Most common areas include the face, neck, hands & Décolletage.
When can I start to see results from the Vampire Lift?
Noticeable results take about 4 weeks. Time is a key ingredient, as it takes a while for collagen to be produced.
