Taking care of yourself the right way means taking care of your skin. But sometimes washing your face, applying creams and serums, and wearing sunscreen isn’t enough to really maintain the look and beauty of your skin. The PRP facelift is the first treatment of its kind that has proven results by combining two rejuvenation treatments. Below you can read more about this treatment so that you can decide if it is right for you!
The First Step: PRP Therapy
The first step of the PRP facelift is PRP therapy. This treatment harnesses the healing ability of blood to rejuvenate the skin. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is one part of your blood, and it contains growth factors, white blood cells, and stem cells, which are all responsible for healing cells, rejuvenating tissue, and promoting collagen production.
For this part of the facelift, we will draw a small of your blood and place it into a centrifuge that will be able to separate the different parts of your blood. Once we remove your platelet-rich plasma, we will create an injectable serum that can be used to revitalize your skin in a number of ways.
The Second Step: Microneedling
The second step of the PRP facelift is microneedling, which is done on the places of your face that need it the most. The microneedling creates micro-channels in your skin, which allows the PRP to be more readily absorbed. Microneedling promotes collagen production as well, so you get double the results.
Is a PRP Facelift Right for You?
The PRP facelift is the perfect option for those who are in search of facial rejuvenation but are not yet ready to go through drastic, traumatic surgical procedures. The PRP facelift has a range of different benefits that make it even better than traditional facelifts. For one, it is able to address most skin issues or concerns you may have.
The PRP therapy step will prompt your skin to begin making new, healthy collagen, which will help eliminate all those fine lines and wrinkles that have popped up around your nose, mouth, on your forehead, and under your eyes. PRP therapy also improves the overall look and feel of your skin, leaving it smoother and tighter while also reducing the look of age spots and scars.
Most people make great candidates for the PRP facelift. However, if you suffer from any blood or liver disorders, cancer, or infections, this might not be the right choice for you.
