Vampire Facial Lift – How Does It Work?

A vampire facial lift might sound like something from a horror film, but it’s actually a wonderfully effective anti-ageing treatment.

It’s a non-surgical treatment, made famous by several celebrities – most notably Kim Kardashian. It is designed to combat common signs of ageing, renew your skin and restore your youthful glow.

Throughout this blog, we will explain the fascinating science behind the vampire facial lift, and how it could work for you.

What Is A Vampire Facial Lift?

A vampire facial stimulates natural collagen and elastin production in your skin through a combination of microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP).

Collagen and elastin help to rejuvenate and maintain your skin’s youthful appearance; and as you age, your natural collagen stores start to deplete. When these stores deplete, you start to notice wrinkles, sagging skin, and hollowing around your eyes and face. 

Collagen is a protein that provides structure, support, and strength to your skin, muscles, bones, and connective tissues. Collagen is essential to restore and regenerate your skin and increase the plumpness of your face.  

Elastin makes your skin stretchy but starts to become lax when you get older. A vampire facial lift kick starts your body’s production, so your skin looks plump and smooth.

How Does The Vampire Facial Lift Work?

This treatment is scientifically proven to reduce the signs of ageing, and how it does this is incredibly clever! The vampire facial lift uses plasma extracted from a sample of your blood to stimulate your body’s collagen and elastin production.

Your doctor will take a small blood sample, just like you would at a normal blood test. Your sample is then spun at high speed in a centrifuge. This is to separate your blood cells so that the plasma can be extracted. 

Next comes the microneedling. 

Microneedling is a treatment that involves poking your skin with tiny needles to create ‘micro-injuries.’ These little injuries trigger your body’s wound-healing process to encourage new collagen production. 

For the vampire facial lift, minuscule pinpricks will be made all over the area you’d like treated. It might seem counterintuitive to cause injury to a place you want to look plumper – but the science behind it will help to explain.

Your body’s response to injury is to send lots of collagen-producing fibroblasts to the area, and as your skin heals, it does so with new collagen and elastin making its appearance much more smooth, toned and plump.

In a vampire facial lift, following the use of a microneedling device, your PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is applied all over the target area. The plasma delivers a high volume of growth factors that enhance the healing process, increasing skin elasticity, volume, and smoothness.

What Can A Vampire Facial Lift Treat?

A vampire facial lift boosts collagen production for tighter, smoother, younger-looking skin. It can be used to treat the following:

  • Smooth out scars – it is particularly effective with acne scars
  • Smooth wrinkles and fine lines – the treatment encourages cell turnover, increasing collagen and elastin production, making your skin look smoother, tighter, and fuller.
  • Alleviate rosacea – for rosacea sufferers, this is usually worse on your facial skin. The PRP enables your skin to rejuvenate and repair itself, soothing the rosacea symptoms.

Is A Vampire Facial Lift Painful?

No, it’s totally painless. The needles are medical grade and tiny; they only penetrate to a depth of 0.5mm – 1mm.

Before your treatment, your aesthetic practitioner will use a numbing cream to ensure that you’re relaxed throughout. Most people describe it as pain-free and comfortable, and your skin should be fully healed within one week.

How Long Will The Results Last?

Results aren’t permanent, but they should last for 6-12 months. A vampire facial lift is an investment in your skin, but it’s not an immediate fix. 

You are essentially tricking your body into speeding up its natural regenerative process, and this can take a bit of time to see the results. 

That being said, you should be able to see the glow and evenness from the PRP after 2 -3 weeks.

Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Dr Shirin was so friendly and helpful.
I was given lots of advice and was given treatment options that were within my budget.
A few weeks after the P Shot I've really started to see a difference and have gained my confidence back.

Thank You!



Elite is an outstanding professional clinic with high standard treatments. All the staff members are friendly and offer you honest opinions when it comes to products and treatments. This is a welcoming clinic that I can 100% recommend. Treatments are spoken through and explained in detail, also aftercare. I have been going nearly a year now and am happy with all the treatments I’ve had, wouldn't go anywhere else. The Bocox treatment started to work within a few days, which I was surprised about. So glad I went to Elite for treatment.



Thank you Dr Shirin, the O Shot has really helped me with my Lichen Sclerosus. I'd heard about the treatment on the LS Facebook Groups and message a few people that had treatment with Dr Shirin. I was like many in the group who had run out of treatment options and using creams on a daily basis. I have to say a few months after treatment, I can see a real positive change and I'm hoping my LS will continue to improve. Dr Shirin did say that I might have to have a second treatment given how severe my case is.




A great discovery in the neighbourhood ! There is no need to go up to London for a beauty treatment of any kind. You'll find a whole range of different treatments suiting all age groups and concerns. Welcoming, reassuring, friendly, professional, high tech. I shall be back for more. I love the results of the Thread Lift I had.


Great service as always, skin is glowing very happy


Very happy with the result of my recent visit. For sure will continue with Elite in future

Hi, Alex here,Just had my Lichen treatment today with Dr Shirin,The whole team at elite are very friendly, comforting and understanding, and did everything they could to give me a wonderful and welcoming experience. They are all so kind, friendly and knowledgeable, world experts at what they do. I am lucky to have them near London. They are also super responsive on the phone and email, so I know they care about thier patients, and I'm very well taken care of, (as with other clinics I have been to, its often difficult to get them to respond to questions), but this clinic is the most responsive I have ever seen!This is a beautiful and wonderful place and I highly recommend it, and I will be recommending it to all my friends as well. They definitely deserve the super high reviews they are getting, so I'm happy to add another one! A Big thank you from me and my family for all you have done for us during this journey!

Yesterday I had a 'body sculpt' session, to help lymphatic drainage. I was zipped into a suit up to my waist. This massaged and lightly squeezed my feet, ankles, calves, thighs and abdomen. I was breathing oxygen rich air via nasal tubes. It was very relaxing and I slept really well last night. Thank you Elite Aesthetics.
