As we age, our skin loses elasticity and facial features begin to sag. Before you consider going under the knife, consider the benefits of the non-surgical, PRP Facelift. This procedure, also known as the PRP-Infused Facelift, combines the science of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers with the rejuvenating abilities of platelet rich plasma (PRP) and the artful eye of a skilled physician to turn back time.
Our blood contains red cells, white cells, and platelets. During the PRP-Infused Facelift, the red and white blood cells are divided from platelets and plasma (clear fluid), leaving you with a higher concentration of platelets (PRP). Platelets house hundreds of proteins called growth factors, which are key players in the healing of injuries. PRP is plasma with many more platelets than what is typically found in blood.
One of our medical professionals will draw a small amount of blood, isolate platelets in a centrifuge, and then inject the platelets into specific areas in order to stimulate growth and spark healing. As the PRP is processed from the patient’s own blood, there is no risk of allergy or rejection with this treatment.
