The PRP FaceLift uses your own blood to harness powerfully regenerating platelet-rich plasma (PRP) which contains a high content of growth factors, the cells responsible for regeneration and repair in our bodies. The PRP FaceLift works on the basis that the body’s own natural healing powers will slow down the signs of aging.
Do you show these three signs of aging?
1. SKIN COLOR becomes grayer because of less blood flow.
2. FACIAL SHAPE becomes collapsed and droopy as muscle and collagen decrease.
3. SKIN TEXTURE becomes less smooth. As a result, the person looks “worn”, or “tired” or “droopy.” The lively, rosy hue (seen plainly in playing children of every skin color and in young adults) fades to a dull gray.
First, hyaluronic acid filler (Juvederm or Restylane) is injected first to lift the skin away from the bone to restore natural youthful volume and shape to the cheeks, around the mouth, eyebrows, and lips.
In a second step, a small amount of blood is taken from you and then treated in a centrifuge to harvest the platelet-rich plasma. This plasma is rich in growth factors, which are the cells responsible for repair in our bodies. The plasma is then re-injected into the face in order to stimulate collagen production for plumping and lifting and to improve skin texture and tone as well as improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Is there any downtime?
PRP or platelet-rich plasma is one of the safest treatments that we apply in cosmetic medicine because it uses your own blood, so there’s nothing external added at all. PRP has been used for many years now with no reported major risk factors or side effects whatsoever. The kit that we use is sterile and disposable, used only once for this patient and disposed of afterward. There is very little downtime with the procedure. Your face may look a little pink immediately after treatment but this will resolve in a couple of hours. You may also have minor bruising but if this happens it should settle within a couple of days.
Am I a candidate for this treatment?
The PRP FaceLift can be used to address a wide variety of facial aging and skin concerns which makes it a very diverse treatment option for anyone who wants a natural way to rejuvenate their skin and turn back the clock. It is suitable for both men and women of any age (over 18) and skin type. As with all treatments you will need a consultation to assess if this is the right procedure for you. Certain conditions such as platelet dysfunction syndrome, sepsis, and chronic liver pathology may make you unsuitable for treatment.
