What's A Vampire Facial?

Updated: Nov 24, 2023

Lotus Wellness and Medspa utilizes a cutting-edge advancement in the field of medical aesthetics called PRF (platelet-rich fibrin), a variation of the highly praised PRP (platelet-rich plasma) procedure, famously known as the "vampire facial."


What is a Vampire facial?

The vampire facial is a natural treatment that uses the patient’s own blood cells to improve skin texture and increase hyaluronic acid and collagen production. Moreover, PRF can also be used for hair restoration and hair growth.

Our blood comprises of red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma, platelets, and various other components. Platelets are tiny cell fragments packed with growth factors that facilitate the healing of wounds and stimulate stem cells to generate collagen and elastin in the skin. The process involves the separation of these components through spinning the blood in a centrifuge, which separates the platelet-rich plasma from the other blood cells and constituents. This platelet-rich Fibrin can then be injected into the face for facial rejuvenation or used to accelerate healing, promote tissue regeneration, and stimulate collagen production. Unlike fillers and Botox injections, the PRF procedure is entirely natural.


While PRP and PRF share the same underlying principle and objective, they differ in their execution. Platelet-rich fibrin treatment has proven to be superior and more effective than PRP because of its ability to release growth factors gradually, resulting in longer-lasting benefits compared to platelet-rich plasma procedures. PRP targets the superficial layers of the skin, even when performed with microneedling techniques, whereas PRF, or the vampire facelift, is injected into the deeper layers of the skin to achieve enduring results.

The top 5 reasons why PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) is considered a revolutionary treatment:

  1. Natural and Autologous: PRF uses the patient's own blood, making it a natural and autologous treatment. This reduces the risk of allergic reactions, infections, or adverse side effects associated with synthetic or foreign substances.

  2. Tissue Regeneration: PRF contains growth factors that stimulate tissue regeneration, including collagen and elastin production. This can lead to improved skin texture, firmness, and overall rejuvenation as well as hair regrowth if injected into the scalp.

  3. Long-Lasting Results: PRF has been shown to provide longer-lasting benefits compared to some other aesthetic treatments like PRP. The gradual release of growth factors encourages sustained improvements in skin quality.

  4. Versatile Application: PRF is versatile and can be used for various purposes, including facial rejuvenation, hair restoration, wound healing, and tissue repair, making it suitable for a wide range of medical and cosmetic needs.

  5. Minimally Invasive: PRF treatments are minimally invasive, involving injections into the targeted area. This means less downtime, quicker recovery, and fewer risks compared to more invasive procedures.
