With stress, blue-light from screens, and time all working against you, it can be a challenge to keep your skin looking its best. These factors (among others) can wear on a person’s natural collagen and elastin, thinning and loosening facial skin. Enter the Vampire Facial: an advanced skin treatment for men and women that utilizes the patient’s own blood for a naturally restored look.
Many celebrities have had their famous faces enhanced with the Vampire Facial treatment, including reality star Kim Kardashian and Israeli model Bar Refaeli. The procedure goes beyond creams and chemicals, providing deep rejuvenation made possible through advanced scientific techniques and the magic of platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
PRP is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein that can be derived from a person’s blood. In a medical context, PRP is used to treat torn tendons, muscle injuries, and certain joint problems. For cosmetic use, PRP is considered ‘liquid gold’ because of the intense restorative effects it can create. The Vampire Facial is sometimes referred to as a PRP treatment or PRP facial because of the essential role this substance plays in the procedure.
A PRP Vampire Facial in Hinsdale can address many common skin concerns that a person may have, including:
For added beauty results, you can also upgrade to the Vampire Facelift. Dr. Morgan would complete all the same steps as the Vampire Facial, with an additional injection from the Juvederm collection of fillers to complete the youthful look.
Some patients experience a slight redness after the procedure, but this fades within a few days at most. Over the next few days patients report glowing, smoother skin, with ongoing and progressing results over the weeks that follow. The full results are typically viewed near the three-month mark. Depending on many factors, including your age and lifestyle, the results can last anywhere from six months to a year.
While some patients use the procedure just once a year and report amazing results, others choose to undergo the full series of 2 to 3 treatments spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart. Patients with certain skin concerns, such as deep wrinkles or severe acne scars, may choose to revisit our office 6 to 8 times in a year, with each session spaced about 6 weeks apart. Speak with Dr. Morgan to find out the plan that is right for you and your situation.

Have you ever admired the ageless beauty of vampires on the silver screen? The Vampire Facelift, sometimes referred to as a platelet-rich plasma facelift, is an innovative cosmetic procedure that utilizes the patient’s own blood to effectively reverse the signs of aging for both men and women. Unlike the Vampire Facial, which relies on facial micro needling, this treatment incorporates hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers for a more dramatic lift.
Dull skin tone – With age, blood flow to the face tends to reduce, leaving skin grayish or dull in tone. The Vampire Facelift stimulates natural processes in the facial skin, returning a healthy, youthful glow.
Droopy or collapsed appearance -The strategic placement of injections during a Vampire Facelift help lift the skin on the face and return volume to key areas.
Imperfect texture – Fine lines and wrinkles, worn areas of the facial skin, and even deep acne scars may be able to be smoothed away by the rejuvenating and plumping effects of a Vampire Facelift in Hinsdale
Sometimes referred to as ‘liquid gold,’ the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) extracted from the patient’s blood is what makes the Vampire Facial and Vampire Facelift so special. This material, natural to the patient’s own body, contains revitalizing growth factors that help encourage cell turnover as well as collagen and elastin production. These three processes are the key to skin that appears naturally beautiful and healthy. The addition of HA fillers in this non-surgical procedure delivers a dramatically lifted effect on the patient’s appearance.
Dr. Morgan will begin by cleaning your skin and applying a topical numbing cream. Approximately 2 teaspoons of blood will then be drawn from your arm, which we will transfer to the in-office centrifuge for processing. Depending on the patient, the HA injections will be completed at before, after, or concurrently with the PRP treatment, in order to most effectively target the desired areas on the face.
Most patients will notice some skin sensitivity after undergoing a Vampire Facelift in Hinsdale, including itching, redness, and swelling. It’s important not to scratch your face, even if it begins to peel or flake. We recommend limiting exercise and exposure to the sun for at least one week after your procedure.
In addition to family dentistry services, our office provides a wide range of non-surgical cosmetic treatments to help our patients look their very best.
