Vampire Facelift

The Vampire Facelift®, often mistakenly called a Vampire facial, is a non-surgical facelift procedure that lifts the lines of your face, restores the fullness of youth, and brightens skin tone — all at the same time.


A good candidate for Vampire Facelift® is if you have no severe skin conditions and are in good health. This procedure is only performed on certain parts of your face, since it requires a small amount of your blood. The best candidates for PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, injections are those with loose, folded skin — in which the skin wrinkles and folds due to poor underlying support and brittle surface tissue.

Some of the facial flaws that this procedure corrects include:

  • Surgical and acne scars
  • Skin lesions
  • Dermis thinning
  • Fine line and coarse wrinkles
  • Substantial connective tissue strength loss leading to drooping

Vampire Facelift® are considered safe, but there can be serious risks when they’re done by an inexperienced injector. Dr. Charles Runels, inventor of Vampire treatments, asserts that anyone who uses the “Vampire” name agrees to follow a standardized set of practices. It’s important to find an experienced injector who’s very knowledgeable about facial anatomy, such as a board-certified dermatologist, plastic surgeon, or facial plastic surgeon.

The Vampire Facelift® procedure only takes about an hour to complete, and that includes the blood draw, preparation of the PRP, platelet-rich fibrin matrix. The Vampire Facelift® has little to no downtime, so you should be able to go back to work the next day. You’ll likely have mild bruising, tenderness, and swelling for a week or two due to the filler. Applying ice or a cold compress intermittently after injections can help ease the swelling.

Since skin renewal and rejuvenation is using the body’s own active regeneration components, facial skin renewal is continual for about 3 months after the procedure. The overall effects of the Vampire Facelift® can last for over a year.

Dermal fillers create immediate volume, so you’ll see a difference right away. Your real results will become apparent as the swelling subsides and the effects of the PRP and fillers start to kick in within two weeks. The skin will continue to improve for up to three months after the procedure as collagen and elastin production picks up and blood flow increases.





I went from being in pain in my knee and needing a PKR. I was scared of performing the surgery so I looked at alternate procedures findng Dr. Smith was a God sent. I am basically 90% better with no pain.

This clinic is the best-kept secret and it changed the quality of my life! You will get results! Your friends will notice that you have lost weight because you will lose inches, and your skin looks healthier and younger! The clinic is classy, friendly and welcoming. You receive a 5-star service and feel great when you leave, but you will want to stay longer to receive a variety of services they offer. They also changed my life with the stem cell into my knee! I have a torn meniscus and was not able to walk without a limp. Instead of surgery, I received stem cell therapy from Dr. Kevin Smith. My knee pain is gone! My knee is healed and I am able to walk and do everything I want to do.

For the few weeks that I have been taking the CBD soft gels with curcumin, I have been able to reduce my Hydrocodone

Piezoelectric Wave TreatmentI have had chronic back pain for over a decade. I have wanted to reduce my dependence on pain medication. Because of a stroke I was unable to use some more traditional medical procedures as I could not stop by blood thinner...

Charles K,

Dr. Kevin Smith, M.D., is the finest pain specialist in California. He and his most capable and compassionate staff deserve the strongest possible recommendation. Dr. Smith is very knowledgeable and stays current with the latest developments in all areas of interventional pain management and regenerative medicine. It is my pleasure to write this testimonial.

I was diagnosed with Idiopathic Progressive Polyneuropathy in 2005. This caused me to slowly lose my balance. For some time I have used a cane or walker to get around without falling. After 4 sessions of Neural Prolotherapy injections in my feet I am able to walk around the house unaided and not feel like I am going to fall. I am so excited with the results of this treatment and feel my improvements will continue.

I did not know I had a problem with urine leakage, would not go away. I saw posters in the waiting room. I asked how does this work? By having these 2 O-Shots I feel wonderful! If you have issues like me do it because it works. Also, I did the UltraSlim procedure, very encouraging. Ladies and Gentlemen go see Dr. Smith, Amber and team, you won’t be disappointed!

Christine S.

I have suffered from chronic pain in my right leg for almost 4 years. After seeing my personal doctor and several nerve blocks that did not work, I was referred to Doctor Smith. After several tests he had me start on CBD oil and later added the Piezo treatments. After 8 treatments I have had 3 weeks of pain free time. The most I have had in 4 years. I am very Thankful for Amber who has done my treatments. She did a wonderful job for me.

What can I expect?

Following the procedure, you may experience pain, bruising, and swelling, but the downtime is minimal. Vampire facial results are not permanent, so maintenance treatments are recommended at least once a year. All in all, vampire facials are not as scary as they sound and are a great way to see results fast.

How long does it last?

You'll see immediate plumping results from the filler, and the glow and evenness from PRP will be visible after 2 to 3 weeks. Results aren't permanent and will typically last for 1 year and as long as 18 months.
