Traditionally, a facelift involves surgical incisions under risky anesthesia and a lengthy, pain-filled period of recovery. Is it any wonder conventional facelifts have fallen out of favor?
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) facelift is an advanced, non-surgical intervention to slow or reverse unwanted age-related changes to the face. The treatment provides a lift to your face's skin by enhancing fullness and tone, brightening your appearance.
Why Platelet-Rich Plasma?
A Non-Surgical facelift's most potent part of the treatment is made from a sample of the patient’s blood.
Platelets are tiny cell-like components of the blood and have incredible healing power. For example, when the body suffers an injury, a chemical signal is sent out, alerting the body’s available platelets to rush to the scene, where they immediately begin working to repair the damage. Platelets stimulate and invigorate living tissue, which makes them an incredible force for rejuvenation. That is why we feature them in our Non-surgical facelift.
How Does the Non-Surgical Facelift Work?
When you come in for your initial consultation, our doctors will make sure to gain a full understanding of your desired results so that we can help you achieve your goal. We will answer all of your questions and ensure that you feel completely comfortable with how the procedure works.
A Non-surgical facelift is composed of three steps:
Step 1 – Hyaluronic Acid Filler Injection
At this stage of the Non-surgical facelift, Juvéderm is injected into pre-determined areas of the face, helping to sculpt your features according to your wishes, as discussed beforehand with the doctor.
Juvéderm is our clinic's preferred filler, and it's the #1 brand of hyaluronic acid facial filler in America. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that's found in the body. It distributes nutrients to the skin, helping it to retain moisture. Hyaluronic acid softens the skin and helps to add volume.
Step 2 – Creation of Platelet-Rich Plasma
Next, the doctor will draw a small amount of your blood—little more than a teaspoon—and using high-precision technology, separate the blood into its various components. The valuable platelets are concentrated into the plasma. The platelet-rich plasma is now ready to be used.
Step 3 – Platelet-Rich Plasma Injection
In the final step of the Non-surgical facelift, the doctor will inject the platelet-rich plasma into strategically determined areas of the face. What makes platelets so valuable is their very high concentration of growth factors. The growth factors improve blood flow and provide a boost to the skin’s collagen by activating your natural stem cells, generating new healthier tissues.
