What is a Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy Facelift?

The Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy Facelift not only adds volume to your skin, but also stimulates the growth of new tissue by using growth factors found in your own blood. The PRP Therapy Facelift is a safe and proven method to help reduce the aging process.

After this procedure you will see your aging skin transform — skin that has become discolored or sags will become smooth and rosey.

How Does a Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy Facelift Work?

The PRP Facelift is typically performed in conjunction with other cosmetic fillers that add volume and contour to your skin. A small amount of your blood is drawn and processed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from your blood. A process is then used to release growth factors from the platelets.  This procedure produces Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). These growth factors are then injected into the treatment area to stimulate stem cells that produce new tissue, such as collagen, blood vessels and fatty tissue.

What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

With a PRP Therapy Facelift, we use PRP, or platelet rich plasma. We take some of your blood and spin it down into a centrifuge. We then get the plasma, which has the platelets in it. We remove and discard the red blood cells, and are left with a yellow serum that has all the growth factors. The serum has all the great factors of blood, plus the platelets, which stimulate everything to grow inside, such as the collagen, or angiogenesis. This makes new blood vessels and is great for your skin. You can then inject the PRP into the face, just underneath the skin. Over time, you can get around 10-15% more volume in your face, which can last a few years. It takes about 8 weeks to see. The procedure also gives you a better glow. It helps with your pores and your blemishes, and it gives you overall healthier looking skin.

Why Add Cosmetic Fillers?

The procedure is typically complemented with fillers, which helps with wrinkles.  While your cheeks are full from the PRP injection, we add filler to your cheeks and lower eyes. Overall, everything is performed in one procedure that typically only lasts an hour. Adding the filler will help with wrinkles that are present, and when combined with the PRP treatment, can really help improve your appearance and give you a younger and more rejuvenated look.

Why choose the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy Facelift?

After your PRP Therapy Facelift, you’ll see your skin color improve as new blood vessels form, and will stimulate collagen growth that will form in the skin to give that plump look associated with youth. This is caused by the use of your own stem cells that give the PRP Therapy Facelift its impact. These stem cells can be used to encourage your body to create new, younger skin cells. Your stem cells are the building blocks of the body, facilitating healing and stimulating the growth of new tissue. Your stem cells along with added dermal fillers, we can return the youthful volume to your face and give you back your beautiful facial shape.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

After just one PRP Therapy Facelift, you see gradual improvements in your skin.  Optimum results typically take two to three months.

How Long Do the Results Last?

Your results from a PRP Therapy Facelift can last one to two years.  To get the longest-lasting results, you should protect the health of your skin with a daily skin care regimen and protection against sun exposure.
