Some of my Houston facelift patients come in asking about the vampire facelift and what it entails. This was a technique popularized several years ago that entails taking platelet rich plasma (PRP) from your blood and injecting it into your face. This is though to stimulate collagen growth and create a more youthful appearing face and skin. In truth, this should not be called a facelift as it will not address jowling or loose neck skin. A mini facelift or face and neck lift will surgically address these issues. The vampire facelift will simply create more refreshed skin.
