Are vampire facelift and facial the same?

How does the facelift work?

What is the procedure of vampire facelift?
The term itself sounds scary and perhaps even painful, but it's a relatively simple procedure. Many people have questions about what this procedure entails. This facelift is a non-invasive procedure which involves using the patient's blood. Thereafter, we separate the platelet-rich plasma with a high concentration of growth factors.
The next step is to mix the natural part of the treatment, the PRP, with HA fillers, we prefer Juvederm Voluma. We use special numbing cream and leave it for about one hour in case we choose to do microneedling. The mixture is then ready to be injected with a sharp needle with a blunt cannula. This treatment leaves the patient with softer, lighter skin color than before the procedure. We use the needle to correct the fine lines and the cannula for the deep wrinkles.
