The Vampire FaceLift™ gets its name from the fact that it uses your own blood to harness powerfully regenerating platelet rich plasma (PRP) which contains a high content of growth factors, the cells responsible for regeneration and repair in our bodies.
This non-surgical treatment can be used to restore natural health and youthfulness to the skin on the face by harnessing the natural healing powers of the human body to repair damaged skin and stimulate new skin cell growth.
The Vampire Facelift™ combines small quantities of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers with growth factors and unipotent stem cells sourced from your own blood, tailoring a procedure to rejuvenate your inherent beauty.
Historically, doctors lacked straightforward methods to rouse these stem cells into regenerating fresh tissue. However, through the utilisation of platelet-derived growth factors (PRP) extracted from a patient’s own blood, we now possess the capability to activate the patient’s unipotent stem cells, encouraging the growth of new, more youthful-looking skin.
The Vampire Facelift™ represents an elevated approach to cosmetic rejuvenation. The activation of platelet cells (PRP) to release their growth factors is a crucial part of the process, achieved through natural methods inherent to the body.

How does it work?
Vampire Treatments, including the Vampire FaceLift™ (also known as PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma Rejuvenation) have been one of the most talked about new rejuvenation treatments to emerge in recent years. Using the body’s own natural ability to heal and repair itself, this ground-breaking procedure can be used to combat facial ageing as well as to lift and enhance the breasts and has become a favourite among celebrities.
As the only UK doctor, and the only doctor in Europe, to be certified by the inventor of the Vampire treatments and registered on the official Vampire Facelift™ website, Dr Wakil is a leader in this new pioneering technique.
The treatment involves taking a small sample of blood and placing it in a centrifuge to extract the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) which is then injected back into the face to rejuvenate and slow down the skin ageing process by stimulating the production of new skin cells.
The Vampire Facelift treatment has become popular because it uses the body’s natural resources, namely a high concentration of growth factors within the plasma, is minimally invasive and has little recovery time and can address the signs of facial ageing both below the surface and on the surface of the skin resulting in re-volumisation, increased collagen and a more radiant complexion.
This treatment is part of The O Concept™ protocol and the treatment plan will be designed according to each individual patient according to the medical history upon consultation with our doctors

A small amount of blood is taken from you and then treated in a centrifuge to harvest the platelet rich plasma or PRP. This plasma is rich in growth factors, which are the cells responsible for repair in our bodies. The plasma is then re-injected into the face where it will stimulate collagen production providing the effect of plumping and lifting the skin and improving skin texture and tone, as well as improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Dr Wakil has developed a technique he calls ‘the sandwich technique’ whereby he injects deep into the skin to stimulate the fibroblasts, the cells responsible for producing collagen, as well as superficially to rejuvenate the outer layer of the skin.
The Vampire FaceLift™ can be used to address a wide variety of facial ageing and skin concerns which makes it a diverse treatment option for anyone who wants a natural way to rejuvenate their skin and turn back the clock.
It is suitable for both men and women of any age (over 18) and skin type.
As with all treatments you will need a consultation with Dr Wakil to assess if this is the right procedure for you. Certain conditions such as platelet dysfunction syndrome, sepsis and chronic liver pathology may make you unsuitable for treatment. If you are pregnant or breast feeding you will also not be suitable for treatment.
The treatment does involve injections so it can be a little uncomfortable but topical anaesthetic or numbing cream is used to minimise any discomfort and most patients find the treatment very tolerable, with many experiencing no pain at all.
The treatment will take about 40 minutes.
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is one of the safest treatments that we apply in cosmetic medicine because it uses your own blood, so there are no additional ingredients added at all.
PRP has been used in aesthetic medicine and other medical applications for many years with no reported major risk factors or side effects whatsoever. The kit that we use is sterile and disposable, used only once per patient and disposed of afterwards. There is very little downtime with the procedure. Your face may look a little pink immediately after treatment, but this will resolve in a couple of hours. You may also have minor bruising, but if this happens it should settle within couple of days.
The Vampire FaceLift™ can give outstanding, natural looking results. Patients say their skin looks healthier, brighter, and more hydrated and has a more youthful glow. The skin will also appear firmer and lines and wrinkles will be visibly improved. Texture and tone will also be improved, and volume can be restored resulting in a lifting effect. Results will typically last 12-24 months, depending on lifestyle and your skincare regime.
