As one of the body’s key natural resources, we are familiar with the life-giving properties of blood which is now being used to breathe new life into your looks in the Vampire facelift.
Put aside thoughts of Count Dracula, this treatment is becoming increasingly popular as an entirely natural way of enhancing your appearance. A small amount of blood is simply taken from the forearm and, following a carefully controlled process, injected back under the skin of the face to make it look fresher and more youthful.
The Vampire facelift is offered alongside a range of more conventional fillers at many beauty treatment centres throughout the UK, including the Aesthetic Beauty Centre, a specialist beauty treatment centre in the North East of the UK. Yet a growing number of clients specifically request it and are happy with how their looks are rejuvenated. The advantage is that nothing artificial is being put into your body, so the risks are reduced.
Dr Ash Dutta, a cosmetic surgeon at the Centre, said: “We draw about 28 to 30mls of blood and spin it in a centrifuge to separate the red and white blood cells from the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), which is what we inject. The principle is that when you cut yourself, the bleeding that happens brings in all the best healing proteins from your blood.
“PRP has been used for burn patients and in various types of operations to heal the injured or damaged area quicker. The healing time has been significantly reduced and the scars look better.”
When a client comes for an anti-ageing treatment, they might need advice on what may best suit their needs, and it is then that the experts at the Aesthetic Beauty Centre can help. The options include natural, artificial and autologous fillers, which, as in the Vampire facelift, are taken from a person’s own body. What is most suitable depends on the individual and which area they wish to target.
Dr Dutta said: “Fillers work best with lines on the lower half of the face. Most people come with an idea but we can talk them through their individual needs and what would work best for them. It’s all about which product you need to use for which particular area.”
Clients can rest assured that at the Aesthetic Beauty Centre, they are in safe hands. Whichever anti-ageing treatment they choose, they can be confident that it will be carried out with professionalism and care. Dr Dutta said: “It’s all about providing treatments in the right, ethical way, which is suitable to the wants and needs of the individual.”

At your consultation you will have the opportunity to discuss your treatment and address any queries that you may have. You will be advised of any pre-treatment preparations and post treatment care.
