The “Vampire Method” is a proprietary technique for rejuvenation that gets its name from isolating the healing abilities within a patient’s own blood to stimulate new tissue growth. Created by internist Charles Runels, MD, the Vampire Facelift® and other treatments utilize Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy to activate stem cells within the body to increase collagen and elastin production.
PRP therapy is a solution well-known for its ability to repair damaged tissue in the body. By taking a sample of blood from the patient’s arm, isolating the platelets from this sample, and reinjecting it into the target area on the patient, the body begins to regenerate, creating new blood vessels, fat, and collagen. When performed using Dr. Runels’ specific Vampire Method, men and women can address concerns ranging from hair thinning to facial aging to urinary incontinence.
We are specially trained in PRP therapy for different Vampire Method procedures, including hair restoration, the Vampire Facelift®, the Vampire Facial®, and the O-Shot®. Each innovative solution has helped patients achieve dramatic improvement in their unique concerns.
PRP therapy has proven effective for increasing hair growth and thickness in patients with thinning hair. The minimally invasive technique involves injecting the prepared PRP concentrate into the target area of the scalp to reactivate hair follicles that have fallen dormant. As the PRP begins to nourish and strengthen these follicles, patients can enjoy a fuller, thicker head of hair.

The Vampire Facelift® combines PRP therapy with dermal filler injections to brighten and “lift” the face for a more youthful complexion and facial shape. The process begins with the strategic placement of a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler, followed by PRP therapy. To enhance these rejuvenating results, microneedling is performed to further stimulate tissue regeneration.

The Vampire Facial® procedure utilizes PRP therapy to activate multipotent stem cells within the patient’s facial skin, triggering the body to repair itself. Microneedling is performed in addition to PRP therapy to enhance the rejuvenating results achieved in the Vampire Facial®. By combining PRP therapy with microneedling, patients can minimize the appearance of fine lines and scars while reviving their complexion for a healthy, youthful glow.
