Cosmetic surgery can remove excess skin and make the person appear younger. But, a surgical facelift can be more than what’s needed for some people (especially when loss of shape without extra skin is the main problem).
Hyaluronic acid (HA) i.e Juvederm, Restylane, fillers lift the skin away from the bone to restore youthful volume and shape. But HA fillers can cause problems near the eye. Also, the injector of HA fillers can chase a wrinkle and create a shape that looks foreign to the person’s face or even foreign to this planet.
The HA fillers do little to improve skin tone and texture.
Unlike most procedures, the PRP Facelift offers a way of both restoring shape, and improving tone and texture, as well as literally rejuvenating new and younger tissue. The goal is to generate a more healthy, youthful, flawless appearing skin.
Platelet Rich Plasma ( PRP) isolated from the patient’s blood when injected into the skin releases supra-physiological release of growth factors into the correct depth of the skin allows the skin to tighten from increased production of collagen and elastin, glow with color by better distribution of melanin pigment, and soften for a beautiful younger and very natural result. These growth factors then activate regenerative cells already in the skin to develop into new collagen, new blood vessels, and new fatty tissues. The result…younger-appearing skin!
The PRP Face Lift procedure combines hyaluronic acid fillers (i.e., Juvederm) with unipotent stem cells from PRP to create youthful and naturally beautiful skin.
What happens to the skin as you age?
Environmental exposure, toxins, sun damage, stress and the sheer passing of each year can cause the skin to diminish and leave unwanted signs of aging. As a result, you may find that you appear worn, tired or droopy. The lively, rosy hue classically observed in youth fades to dull gray. This occurs because:
- The skin color changes because of less underlying blood flow.
- The shape becomes collapsed and droopy as muscle and collagen decrease.
- The texture of the skin becomes less smooth.
Why choose the PRP Face Lift?
Although there can be a place for a surgical face lift, such procedures are not necessarily a panacea or cure-all to the concerns of the aging face.
The PRP Face Lift requires no scalpel, skin stretching and minimal downtime. By combining platelet rich plasma, sourced from your blood, with hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, the face is lifted away from the bone and youthful volume is restored to a beautiful shape.
The effects of the procedure improve for 2 to 3 months and last for at least 1 to 2 years.
