You want to keep your face looking young, but without the risks and downtime that come with surgery. Fortunately, anyone who’s had this concern has many nonsurgical options available to them. One of the most effective noninvasive procedures on the market today is the platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, facelift. The PRP facelift can rejuvenate your appearance without lengthy, invasive surgery.
This cosmetic procedure is also great for patients who would like to increase their collagen production and naturally lift their skin. As we grow older, our skin starts to lose the same smoothness it once had, which might make us look more tired than we feel.
What Makes the PRP Facelift Special?
The sheer number of cosmetic procedures available today can make it difficult to decide which one might be right for you. When searching for a way to rejuvenate your face, there is no shortage of options, and cosmetic surgery is a popular way to achieve your desired appearance.
The problem with cosmetic surgery, however, is that not everyone needs or wants surgery to get desirable results, and the results they see are often much more dramatic than what they had expected. Because of this, many patients turn to hyaluronic acid fillers that can lift the skin and restore a youthful appearance.
HA fillers can provide effective results for those looking for a noninvasive procedure. Unfortunately, when used on their own, they can cause unwanted problems near the eye, and they pose the risk of yielding unnatural-looking results. Another issue with HA fillers is that they might not do much to improve the texture and tone of your skin. For those who have had these experiences or concerns, the PRP facelift can provide a satisfying alternative.
What to Expect
The PRP facelift is different because it restores your skin’s texture, tone and shape, rejuvenating your skin and making it look naturally younger.
During the procedure, one of our medical professionals injects HA fillers into your face to create an aesthetic shape. The next step of the procedure consists of isolating essential growth factors from a blood sample.
Once the growth factors in your blood sample have been separated from the blood cells and isolated, they are prepared for injection. Next, the platelet-rich plasma from the sample is injected into and stimulates your skin by forming new blood vessels, fatty tissue and collagen.
How the PRP Facelift Rejuvenates Your Skin
Platelet-rich plasma got its name for a reason; it contains significantly more platelets than regular plasma. These platelets are very important because they grow new cells and accelerate tissue healing.
Once the PRP is injected into the areas of the face you would like to treat, it encourages tissue regeneration and collagen production. This naturally tightens and smooths your skin, leaving you with convenient, satisfying, natural-looking results without an invasive procedure.
The use of platelet-rich plasma isn’t new, and for many years, it has been used in reconstructive surgery, dentistry and orthopedic medicine. The PRP facelift is different because it uses platelet-rich plasma to rejuvenate the skin on your face, and since it stimulates collagen production, it delivers total facial rejuvenation.
