Not only does a PRP facelift rejuvenate the tightness, texture, and color of your skin, but it also gives you a more youthful appearance. Furthermore, it’s a safe, simple and non-invasive way to get the results you’ve been dreaming of.

What is a PRP Facelift?

By combining PRP – also known as platelet rich plasma – with dermal fillers, you’ll immediately notice a more toned and tight appearance on your face. As noted above, as a non-invasive procedure there is little to no pain and discomfort. Even better, downtime is kept to a minimum, thus allowing you to keep up with your day-to-day life.

How does it Work?

The first step in a PRP facelift entails a small amount of blood drawn from the patient. From there, the blood is processed as to isolate the platelet rich plasma. It’s this part of the blood that has the highest concentration of healing factors, which is why it’s used.

The next step is to inject the platelet rich plasma cells back into the skin. In addition to increased blood flow, the platelet rich plasma promotes the creation of collagen.

From there, dermal fillers are injected into the face to lift problem areas, thus giving you a more youthful appearance.

Note: the effect of dermal fillers can gradually disappear, so you may require follow-up treatments to maintain your improvements.
