Adults who struggle with the problem of aging facial skin often try various fixes that yield only temporary results. The most visible signs of aging include sagging skin on the cheeks, forehead, and neck; large creases and folds; and increased amounts of fat beneath the skin. When our OKC clients turn to us for answers, we often recommend the PRP facelift.
A traditional facelift can yield results that last for many years, but it is a rather aggressive procedure and comes with significant risks and downtime. Those who would prefer to avoid surgery could greatly benefit from PRP.
What Is a PRP Facelift?
As the name implies, a PRP facelift uses your own PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, to restore youth and vitality to the skin on your face. Your platelets are capable of amazing things. When injected in concentrated amounts, the growth factors contained within them kick-start your body’s rejuvenation process.
After a PRP facelift, clients can expect to enjoy new blood vessel formation and improved circulation, increased collagen production and overall healthier skin, all without the need for surgery.
What to Expect
As with most services we offer, the process will begin with a consultation with our specialist. During this initial appointment, you will get to learn everything that is involved in the procedure and if it is right for you.
During the actual treatment session, our trained specialist will draw a small amount of blood and spin it in a centrifuge. This step is vital because it separates the blood from the platelets, which are necessary for skin rejuvenation. The concentrated platelets are then activated and injected back into the areas you would like to treat.
Things to Know
After your treatment, activated platelets go to work creating new, healthier skin and boosting collagen production, leaving you with results that continue to improve over time.
Because the PRP facelift is minimally invasive and involves very little to no downtime, normal activities can be resumed shortly after treatment. You also get the added benefit of knowing that you aren’t putting anything foreign in your body. The amazing results you see are the product of your very own platelet-rich plasma.
