Vampire Hand Rejuvenation
The Vampire Hand Rejuvenation in NJ is a painless and minimally invasive procedure that combines the science of platelet rich plasma (PRP) with a Dermal Filler to correct wrinkling, thinning and rough skin and volume loss in the hands due to age and sun exposure.
PRP is a concentrated source of platelets, growth factors and cytokines produced naturally in your own body, and stimulates and controls healthy regenerative processes, including collagen and soft tissue remodeling, and thereby improves overall health and rejuvenation. The PRP, painlessly obtained through a small blood draw, is injected after dermal filler and enhances the results of this amazing procedure. PRP has been used successfully for years in surgical, orthopedic and non-surgical procedures to promote improved healing times and optimal results from various procedures. Our body produces new platelets regularly and an average lifespan of circulating platelets in 8-9 days. They are produced in the bone marrow from precursors called megakaryocytes. Since only a small amount blood is drawn to obtain PRP, and since our bone marrow produces them daily, this procedure will not affect your platelet count or bodily function.
During this treatment, Dr. Chandra uses a dermal filler to restore volume, thicken skin and reduce the appearance of vessels and tendons, and strategically injects PRP into multiple areas of the hands and wrists. These growth factors activate the body’s healthy regenerative processes to stimulate new collagen, new fatty tissue (smoothness) and improved blood circulation (tone and texture).
This treatment is a revolutionary new treatment that is only performed by a “handful” of providers across the country. It, along with all other Vampire procedures, is highly complex and must be performed at a Vampire®-certified center by a trained provider who uses an FDA-approved sterile system to obtain the PRP and understands the science and how to perform and tailor the treatment to each patient’s concerns. In New Jersey, only a physician who has met the above qualifications may offer this procedure. Just like many other cosmetic procedures, the Vampire Hand Rejuvenation is not a highly regulated treatment and thus patients must be educated in how to choose a provider.
Dr. Chandra has been personally trained by the creator of the Vampire procedures, Dr. Charles Runels, and has an in-depth knowledge of hand anatomy which enables him to perform this treatment with little to no risk. Dr. Chandra is committed to spending as much time as needed to customize his injection technique to address the patient’s concerns, and making the experience as comfortable as possible by holding pressure to avoid bleeding, icing the treated area, etc.

Although this treatment will not specifically address pigment issues like sun spots or age spots, Anara Medspa offers several different treatments that can be combined with the Vampire Hand Rejuvenation to address these concerns.
Following the treatment, patients can expect minimal swelling and bruising, resulting in little to no social downtime. Normal activities can be resumed immediately. For those patients who experience very minimal bruising, makeup can be used for cover. Although rare, if any bruising occurs, a quick, free IPL or Laser spot treatment will decrease the bruising.
After this treatment, you will see immediate volume restoration and rejuvenation of the hands. As the PRP stimulates healing, collagen remodeling, circulation and healthy tissue regeneration, patients will see texture, tone and color improvement, and noticeable tightening that will peak in 6 to 12 months and last for years.
The Vampire Hand Rejuvenation is very safe and effective when performed by a trained, Vampire-certified injector, like Dr. Chandra. Additionally:
- Dr. Chandra uses an FDA-approved device with sterile process to obtain and concentrate PRP, which contains growth factors and healing elements produced naturally in your own body.
- In the history of medical and surgical literature, there has never been a reported complication attributed to the use of PRP.
Dr. Chandra uses an FDA-approved dermal filler that has been studied and used for years to restore and reshape the face and other areas of the body.
