The "Vampire Facial"

Cosmetic PRP is a revolutionary cosmetic treatment that rejuvenates the skin, resulting in a youthful appearance.

Also known as the ‘Vampire Facial’ or ‘Vampire Facelift’, it has been made famous by celebrities such as Angelina Jolie and Kim Kardashian. Having developed a cult following amongst celebrities in Hollywood and New York, the treatment is now available here in Thailand at Surecell.

What does the process involve?

  • A nurse will take your blood (like a normal blood test).

  • The blood is then spun in a centrifuge to isolate the PRP which contains a large concentration of growth factors and platelets integral to healing and regeneration.

  • The area to be treated is washed and local anaesthetic cream is applied.

  • The PRP is then injected directly into the area to be treated.

The whole process takes approximately 60 minutes.

How does it work?

PRP contains a high proportion of cytokines, white blood cells and growth factors vital for the regeneration of tissue. Growth factors in the PRP stimulate cells called dermal fibroblasts, increasing their replication and production of collagen and elastin. These are responsible for tissue strength and elasticity, which are often lost in aging.

PRP also stimulates adipocytes which are responsible for facial fullness and reduction of naso-labial folds and smile lines. The result is tissue growth, a reduction in wrinkles and a more youthful complexion!

Some uses of Cosmetic PRP include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles

  • Uneven or dull skin tone

  • Dehydrated and dry skin

  • Fine, thin crepe skin around the eyes, neck and back of hands

  • Scar improvement

  • Improving skin elasticity

  • Stretch marks

How does it differ from mainstream treatments?

When compared to current mainstream cosmetic treatments such as Botox and fillers, PRP differs in several ways:

  • It is natural and harmless. PRP is made from a sample of your own blood, without any additives, so there is no risk of an allergic reaction.

  • PRP does not work by reducing the movement of the muscles of facial expression, so will not result in paralysis.

  • Its effects last longer. While the effects may take several weeks to develop, they last longer than Botox or fillers.

How should I prepare for my treatment?

  • Drink plenty of water and eat healthily prior to the treatment.

  • Vitamin E and fish-oil tablets should be avoided 2-3 days prior to your treatment as they can increase bruising*.

  • Avoid taking blood thinning medications, as they can also increase bruising.

Please let us know if you are taking any of the above.


*Please note that some people experience mild bruising in treated areas. This is normal and should subside in a few days.

  • How many injections will I need?
    Frequency and number of treatments will depend on how severe the condition is. For chronic joint injuries such as osteoarthritis, we recommend a course of three sessions, one week apart, followed by annual top up sessions. For soft tissue injuries such as tendon tears, treatment involves three injections, two weeks apart. For the treatment of burns or scars, treatment frequency will depend on severity.
  • Are there any side effects of PRP injections?
    After PRP is taken from your own blood, there are no risks of disease transmission or allergic reactions. Sometimes PRP may aggravate the inflammatory response, causing a temporary increase in pain and swelling of the injured area. There may also be a local pressure effect from the injection of the fluid. These effects should subside within a few hours to days. If pain is severe, contact the doctor.

  • What is the difference between PRP and stem cells?
    PRP contains natural growth factors and vital proteins that can help heal injured areas of soft tissue. PRP is used to treat conditions that often have the ability to heal themselves but may require a “jumpstart”, whereas stem cells are used in cases of more advanced conditions such as degenerative arthritis, bony defects, and in cases of spinal disc degeneration.

  • When can I expect to see improvements after getting cosmetic PRP injections?
    Most people notice an immediate improvement in the quality of their skin (skin turgor and elasticity) after their first cosmetic PRP treatment. Collagen and elastin production can take up to three months to occur. The results of cosmetic PRP generally last a year. Results differ depending on the individual and their lifestyle. Lifestyle factors such as smoking, stress and illness can affect results.
  • Are there any side effects with cosmetic PRP injections?
    Some people experience mild bruising in the area of treatment, which may take several days to disappear. Some swelling may also be expected in the next 24-48 hours after receiving cosmetic PRP. These are all common side effects. As we are unable to determine how your skin will react to PRP injections for the first time, we recommend that patients come in at least 2 weeks before a big event. It is important to note that fish oil and blood thinning medications can promote bleeding and bruising. Thus, we recommend that you stop taking them at least 3 days before receiving cosmetic PRP from us.
  • How do I know if I am a suitable candidate for cosmetic PRP?
    The best way to find out if you are a suitable candidate for cosmetic PRP is to book a consultation with us. When you come in for your consultation, we will assess your skin and find out more about the results you want to achieve with cosmetic PRP injections, such as fading acne scars, softening wrinkles and/or hyperpigmentation. If you decide to go ahead with the treatment, we are able to do it on the day itself.
  • Are cosmetic PRP injections painful?
    Local anaesthetic cream is applied to the face 30-40 minutes prior to cosmetic PRP injections. There may be a momentary pressure effect from the injection of the fluid. There is no cause for concern, as our cosmetic PRP doctors and nurses are skilled at mitigating discomfort as much as possible.
  • How much do cosmetic PRP injections cost?
    The cost of PRP injections depends on the results you want to achieve and the type of treatment (injections, dermarolling 'vampire facial', etc.). Call us at +66 38 251 319 to book in a consultation to discuss your treatment options and the cost.
  • How many injections will I need for cosmetic PRP?
    We recommend starting with one course of cosmetic PRP injections, which involves 3 injections, one month apart.
