What is a Vampire facelift?
When you hear the term “Vampire Facial” it probably brings many things to mind… pale skin, sharp fangs, immortality, Ian Somerhalder… But, the “Vampire Facelift” is an alternative to a surgical facelift, more cost effective and allows Dr Botha to work with you towards a more radiant appearance *, without the hospitalisation required with traditional surgery.
In 2010, Dr Charles Runels trademarked the name “Vampire Facelift”, and introduced the procedure to the aesthetic world, where it became very popular amongst socialites and celebrities like Kim Kardashian.
Before the procedure blood is drawn from the patient and the platelets are then separated from the blood. These platelets are the activated and the gel produced is then injected into the areas requested by the patient, for example, the cheeks, mouth lines or under the eyes.
The use of the platelets in this state encourages the growth of new collagen, skin tissue and blood vessels. This in turn creates a more youthful and aesthetically appealing appearance. **

The “Vampire Facelift” is great from the perspective that it can be done during a lunch break from work or in fact any time that is most convenient for you.
