Have you been searching for a non-surgical procedure that can give you a younger, fresher appearance? Look no further than the PRP facelift.
A PRP facelift uses your body’s platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to encourage cell repair and rejuvenate your skin. At Mariposa Aesthetics and Laser Center, we offer PRP facelifts to clients seeking a more youthful look.
What Is a PRP Facelift?
A PRP facelift is a non-surgical procedure that uses your body’s platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to encourage healing and cellular repair of the deeper layers of your skin.
We start by withdrawing a small amount of blood from your body, which we place into a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins your blood around rapidly, separating the PRP from other blood cells. Once we have the PRP, we’ll use it to perform your PRP facelift.
Benefits of a PRP Facelift
If you’re looking for a serious boost to your skin without downtime, a PRP facelift is for you. You can expect the following benefits:
More Collagen Production
Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that supports the health of your skin, muscles, and bones. Beginning in your 20s, your body reduces its production of collagen, which eventually leads to the development of fine lines and wrinkles.
The PRP facelift stimulates collagen production, allowing skin cells to renew and turn over. You’ll see a reduction in your fine lines, and you may even see improvement in old acne scars.
Millions of people rely on topical products for extra collagen, but stimulating your body’s production of this critical protein gets right to the source of the issue.
Fewer Lines and Wrinkles
Those who follow the latest skin care trends often purchase cleansers, lotions, and serums to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. While these products have their benefits, they don’t have the immediate impact that a PRP facelift does.
In the weeks following your PRP facelift, you’ll notice a reduction in your fine lines and wrinkles. In comparison, facial serums often take months to improve your wrinkles — if they help at all.
Improved Skin Tone and Texture
Since PRP facelifts encourage skin turnover, you’ll see a rosy glow and a fresher look to your skin soon after your treatment. Many people with acne scars, hyperpigmentation, or stretch marks notice a more even skin tone that continues to improve in the following weeks.
Acne scars and hyperpigmentation are frequent complaints of our patients, and we frequently recommend the PRP facelift to help minimize these blemishes.
Following a PRP facelift, you’ll typically see optimal results within two to three weeks. However, your skin will continue to produce collagen, and you may see further results as more weeks pass.
PRP facelift results last longer than most other facials. Following your treatment, you may bask in the benefits of PRP on face and skin concerns for up to a year. Of course, follow-up treatments are always available if you want to experience an even more significant outcome.
Undergoing a PRP facelift is a non-surgical and quick process that requires no downtime. Our patients can expect the entire session to last less than an hour. Following your treatment, you can return to your normal activities.
Keep in mind that we advise you to allow the PRP to remain on your face for up to 24 hours. The PRP won’t be obvious to anyone else; however, the longer you allow it to sit on your face, the better it will absorb into your skin’s layers.
What Are PRP Injections?
Patients looking for a natural filler that uses their body’s fluids to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles may find PRP injections suitable.
The process for preparing PRP injections is similar to that of the facelift. We’ll begin by withdrawing a small amount of blood, which we’ll place into the centrifuge. As the centrifuge spins, it will separate the PRP from your blood’s other components. We’ll use the PRP to prepare the injections.
Benefits of PRP Injections
Patients who choose PRP injections can expect several benefits, including the following:
More Youthful Appearance
PRP injections work similarly to hyaluronic acid injectables. They can fill in lines and wrinkles and help contour areas of the face that have suffered from reduced volume. We can diminish the appearance of deeper lines, like nasolabial folds and marionette lines, using PRP injections.
Before deciding where to inject the solution, we’ll have a full consultation with you to discuss your treatment goals. We’ll administer the PRP into areas that are most likely to provide you with the results you’re looking for.
PRP comes directly from your body. When we prepare your PRP injections, we don’t include substances that aren’t natural. Patients who prefer to stick with natural fillers benefit from these injectables.
PRP injections can last up to six months before you need a touch-up. In the meantime, you’ll enjoy a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. You can expect natural-looking results — a bonus if you haven’t tried fillers before.
Activation of Growth Factors
PRP injectables stimulate the production of eight growth factors in the skin. The growth factors encourage further cellular turnover and rejuvenation. Many patients find that the texture and underlying structure of their skin continue to improve in the months following treatment.
