A Non-Surgical “Facelift” to Turn Back the Clock
Westport | Fairfield CT
The Vampire Facelift® and the Vampire Facial® – are they worth it?
In a word: YES
Although we can remove loose skin, heat it with lasers, plump it with fillers and relax it with toxins…we still fall short of legitimate rejuvenation. None of these procedures can directly stimulate cells to behave differently. That’s where the patented “Vampire” procedures of Dr. Charles Runels come into play.
Think of it this way - with aging, our skin takes on a grayish pallor and loses its glow. Structurally, our soft tissue collapses as we lose volume in both our deeper tissue and bony scaffolding. Furthermore, every aging person recognizes the changes in skin pigment and texture: rough, dry, brittle and mottled.

The Vampire Facelift Difference
The Vampire Facelift® utilizes a combination of hyaluronic acids (HAs) and platelet rich plasma (PRP) to perform synergistic anti-aging functions. When strategically injected, the HA’s act to ‘lift’ collapsed areas and even out transition zones between the various areas of the face. This helps to restore a more youthful and natural shape/structure to the face.
But it’s the addition of PRP that starts the magic! PRP serves as the vehicle to deliver your own biologic growth factors (by injection) into your tissue to activate multi-potent stem cells. Once activated, your stem cells replicate and repair your aging tissue. New tissue takes the form of blood vessels (restoring the rosy complexion), collagen and elastin (hello again to skin tone!), hyaluronic acid (for that dewy youthful glow), fatty tissue (for much needed smoothing and volume) and the matrix that holds cells together and thickens the skin. In this manner, color, fine lines, texture, moisture and overall quality and integrity are improved. The Vampire Facelift® introduces a credible and regenerative biologic stimulus directly to cells of our aging skin. PRP doesn’t just sit on your skin, it becomes your skin.
Boost Your Vampire Facelift® with Complementary Treatments
Dr. Mahony often supports the regenerative aspects of The Vampire Facelift® with hyaluronic fillers to add additional fullness to the areas of the face that most need it. The results of this combination are immediate and deeply restorative!
The combination of the Vampire Facelift® and the Vampire Facial® revolutionizes our approach to skin care by directly changing the way our skin cells behave in both the superficial and deep layers, doubling the gains and maximizing the outcome!
Worth it? Yes. Visible difference?? Absolutely. Are we loving it? Definitely!
ASK DR. MAHONY
This procedure combines micropenning of the entire face with injections of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) that we extract from your own blood. These two techniques combined will improve superficial lines by virtue of the action of the growth factors associated with platelets. So, yes, the Vampire Facelift® can be beneficial in rejuvenating the skin and improving its texture and integrity, including the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
