It happens to most of us at some point. We look at in the mirror and suddenly see an older, less vibrant version of ourselves that just doesn’t match the way we feel inside. If that sounds familiar but the idea of invasive surgery doesn’t sit well with you, then the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) facelift might be a great option.
The Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) facelift is the ultimate in skin rejuvenation and facial contouring – without surgery! The non-invasive procedure combines Hyaluronic Acid fillers and platelet-rich plasma from your own blood to smooth out your skin texture, soften fine lines and wrinkles, increase collagen and volume, and give you back your youthful glow.
Sounds like something worth learning more about, doesn’t it?
How the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) facelift works
Step 1: Create beautiful contours
The first thing we’ll do is strategically inject you with a Hyaluronic Acid dermal filler, such as Restylane or Juvederm, to enhance the contours of your face. This is not a one-size-fits-all procedure. Your injections will be customized to restore the youthful shape of your face and give you natural-looking results.
Step 2: Make the magic potion
Actually, it’s not magic at all – unless you consider the magic of science. What this step entails is the drawing of a small vile of your blood. Once drawn, we’ll place the tube in a special centrifuge machine that separates the plasma from the blood cells. This plasma, which we call platelet-rich plasma (PRP), is the magic potion. The platelets contain a number of growth factors that can stimulate collagen synthesis, skin renewal, cell growth, and tissue regeneration.
Step 3: Rejuvenate your facial tissue
Next, we will prepare your face with numbing cream and use a very small needle to inject the PRP into your face, where it will begin to work its magic. The growth factors contained in the platelets will activate the stem cells in your skin. These stem cells provide the building blocks for healing when you sustain a burn or a cut. Once activated by the PRP, the stem cells stimulate new collagen growth and increased blood flow, as well as the development of new fatty tissue.
The results: The Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) facelift is the ultimate in skin rejuvenation, resulting in increased volume, softened fine lines and wrinkles, and more youthful skin texture, color, and tone. Although you may begin notice changes within a week or so of your procedure, the effects will continue to improve for two to three months and can last for up to two years!
