Vampire Procedures Q & A
What are Vampire Procedures for anti-aging?
Vampire procedures are cutting-edge, minimally invasive therapies that use your own blood —rich with healing fibrins, stem cells, and growth factors — to restore aging and sagging tissues on your face and breasts. Dr. Lasater is one of few Grand Rapids-area physicians and anti-aging specialists who’s undergone certified training in the Vampire procedures and is licensed by the Cellular Medicine Association.
What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a healing accelerator that’s created when Dr. Lasater takes a small amount of blood from your arm and processes it to concentrate its percentage of healing platelets. He then injects the platelet-rich blood into aging or damaged tissue to stimulate healing and rejuvenation. Or, he brushes the PRP onto tissue to accelerate its healing.
Who benefits from Vampire procedures?
Women and men who want a fresher look benefit from Vampire procedures. Vampire procedures improve:
- Gray-looking skin
- Tired, dull skin
- Volume loss
- Rough skin
- Sagging breasts
After Vampire procedures, Dr. Lasater recommends Altar™ Vampire Skin Therapy™ to facilitate healing.
What is a Vampire Facial?
Dr. Lasater begins a Vampire Facial by using microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy to create controlled wounds in your skin. The tiny wounds stimulate your skin’s healing system so that it rushes in fibrin to rebuild old collagen fibers.
He then brushes your skin with PRP to accelerate the healing and collagen-remodeling process. Over the next months, your skin looks healthier, tighter, and younger.
What is a Vampire Facelift?
During a Vampire Facelift, Dr. Lasater first creates a more youthful, firmer face shape with injections of hyaluronic acid (HA) based dermal fillers, such as Juvederm® or Resytlane®. He then injects PRP deep into your skin to stimulate collagen remodeling. The PRP also increases blood flow, resulting in:
- Restored shape
- Glowing tone
- Fresher skin texture
- More youthful, uplifted look

What is a Vampire Breast Lift?
A Vampire Breast Lift restores sensation to your breasts and nipples and creates more uplifted, fuller-looking breasts. A Vampire Breast Lift begins when Dr. Lasater improves the shape and volume of your breasts by injecting them with PRP in an individualized pattern. Over the next weeks to months, your sensation is amplified, and your breasts become fuller and more uplifted.
