Time, age, genetics, and external factors all play a role in facial skin losing elasticity over time. While these changes are natural, they don’t have to be permanent, with the usage of face lifts. Patients struggling with facial skin that has developed fine lines and wrinkles are often faced with the reality of decreased collagen and elastin levels. These evolving production rates can also lead to sagging skin that tends to be most noticeable around the eyes, nose, and jawline. Those looking to successfully reverse the effects of these changes have found safe and effective success with a procedure known as the PRP Facelift.
The PRP Facelift has gained recognition as a nonsurgical facelift solution that uses a patient’s own blood cells to rejuvenate, tighten and ultimately deliver up natural-looking results. Considered a more natural approach to face lifts, a PRP Facelift is done as an outpatient procedure in the comfort of an attending physician’s office. Treatment begins with hyaluronic acid filler used to contour the face. Numbing cream can be applied prior to beginning treatment for a painless and comfortable session. Blood is then drawn from the patient and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is separated out using a centrifuge. PRP is reinjected into the facial treatment area to promote overall skin rejuvenation. PRP is recognized as being a key factor in the promotion of stem cell development and because of this.
The majority of patients who undergo a PRP Facelift report seeing visible results in the form of younger-looking and firmer facial skin in just a few weeks. This minimally invasive procedure comes with little to no downtown and at most, patients report some redness and discomfort at the injection points that diminishes within 24-48 hours. Those looking for a facelift solution that takes a more natural approach to treatment often find the PRP Facelift to be exactly what they’ve been searching for.
