What exactly is the PRP Facelift?
The PRP Facelift is an amazing new treatment that can improve your skin texture, wrinkles, sagging and volume for natural facial contours and rejuvenated skin. It is a non-surgical procedure that involves the injection of a gel-like substance made from Platelet Rich Plasma(PRP) that is derived from your own blood.
How is the non-surgical PRP Facelift done in Dallas and Southlake?
A numbing creme is applied to your face. A small amount of your blood is drawn from your vein; equal to one tube of blood drawn for routine lab work. Your blood is placed in a FDA approved PRP vial and spun in a special centrifuge to separate your platelets from red and white blood cells. This process is essential to extract your “platelet Rich Plasma” or PRP. One 8cc tube of your whole blood can yelid 5-6 cc’s of concentrated PRP. Your PRP is activated just prior to injection into your skin. One syringe of a hyalurocic acid(HA) filler is injected into specific areas. Your PRP is injected immediately following the HA injections in specific pre-determined areas of your face for natural enhancement of your facial volume and contours.
A light skin resurfacing is done with the Micropen after your PRP-HA filler injection treatment.
How does PRP work for non-surgical Facelift?
Your activated PRP when injected into your skin releases up to eight growth factors and initiates stem cell migration into the area of injection. These growth factors are known to induce collagen synthesis and the stem cells lead to new skin cell synthesis for volume, thickness and firmness of your skin. An added benefit is improvement in skin circulation which leads to better skin texture, color and a “glowing” complexion so characteristic of a youthful face.
What results can I see with my PRP Facelift?
Unlike HA fillers alone, the results of the PRP facelift involve all three areas of skin aging leading to:
- Improvement of epidermal texture,fine lines, and overall complexio
- Increase in dermal thickness, firmness, and elasticity
- Enhancement of subdermal volume leading to restoration of youthful facial contours and subtle lift of facial proportions..
When will I see the results from my non-surgical PRP Facelift in Dallas and Southlake?
