With a full moon and Halloween around the corner, one’s thoughts are sure to entertain a few goblins and ghosts.
My own fave of the creatures that go bump in the night is the vampire – those immortal creatures that suck your blood and make you “one of THEM.” When I was much much younger, Dracula spooked me so hard, I even slept with a bunch of garlic under my pillow just to ward him off.
Sure, vampires are all the rage due to TV Shows and movies. But NOW, vampires have a spooky anti-wrinkle treatment named after them!
(Sorry Frankenstein.) It’s Vampire Therapy time!
Fear not! It doesn’t involve someone driving a stake through your heart – although THAT would certainly stop your wrinkles for sure. BUT, it DOES involve B L O O D.
Vampire Therapy is also called Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy or PRP. Some call it Blood Therapy, Vampire Facelift, Regen™, Sephyl™, and Vampire Skin Therapy.
Your doctor really does take a small amount of blood from you (hopefully not from your neck) and then the blood is enriched to increase the concentration of platelets. He or she then prepares a platelet rich fibrin injectable gel. The injections stimulate collagen production and cell migration to eliminate your lines.
I’m told results can last up to two years, and look natural. Two years isn’t forever, but it’s pretty damn amazing!
The platelets are key here because they contain bioactive proteins and growth factors that help accelerate tissue repair and regeneration, and activate stem cells. Hmmm, maybe blood is the secret that makes all those vampires look so damn good!
Rejuvalife Vitality Institute in Beverly Hills has been offering Vampire Therapy treatments since its FDA clearance 6 years ago.
Their website lists some of the advantages of Vampire Therapy:
* Vampire therapy uses your own natural resources so there is no risk of allergic reaction

No side effects! That means no turning into a blood sucking night villain. And that’s a plus. Results usually last 6-12 months.
The before and after photos were supplied by Rejuvalife Vitality Institute. The before photo looks like it is taken with a fish eye lens and the face angles don’t match, AND she’s wearing makeup in the after photo which is a no no, however, you CAN see significant improvement in the lines around the mouth.
