The Vampire Facial® and Vampire Facelift® are treatment options for patients interested in the rejuvenating properties of platelet rich plasma, also known as PRP. Both are minimally invasive treatments designed to improve the tone and texture of your complexion.
The Vampire Facial includes a process called microneedling which creates thousands of tiny channels in your skin to allow your growth factors to reach a deeper layer of your skin where cell growth occurs. This procedure is used to create a smoother texture of the skin, reduce pore size, and reduce any scarring that is present but does not affect volume of the face. The Vampire Facelift combines your own growth factors with commonly used hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers such as Juvederm products.
Both minimally invasive treatments provide:

If you’re a medical professional who would like to be trained in PRP facials by a board-certified physician, reach out to The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity. Dr. Levenson offers 4-5 classes for doctors to learn how to provide this cutting-edge, non-invasive procedure. Just give us a call -- we’ll be happy to hear from you!
The cost of PRP therapy will be dependent on the area being treated and if it is combined with another cosmetic procedure. Dr. Levenson will come up with an estimated cost during your initial consultation and discuss all your payment options.
PRP injections feel similar to a dermal filler or BOTOX injection with the additional step of the plasma extraction. Typically, most patients will feel a mild pinch or pressure at the time of injection. If you are concerned about pain or discomfort, ask about including local anesthesia during your consultation.
The risks for PRP by itself are extremely minor and include only prolonged bruising and swelling. When combined with microneedling, however, potential risks may include infection, mild scarring, pigment changes, and delayed healing. That’s why it’s important to have microneedling done by a skilled doctor like Dr. Levinson, who is highly experienced with the process.
PRP therapy has been known to last for 4-8 weeks. The longevity of the results will vary with each patient and will depend on the area being treated. The benefit of this procedure is that it does not require surgery or significant downtime and is more affordable.
