The PRP Facelift involves taking a tube of blood from the patient, processing it in a centrifuge to extract the platelet rich plasma (PRP)- which contains platelets and growth factors - and then re-injecting it into the face with Juvaderm, a filler. This stimulates the body into thinking that there has been an injury and hence, brings the healing growth factors to aid new collagen formation and blood supply. This provides a longer lasting result than filler alone. This treatment is best for patients with tone and texture issues that need a little “lift” as well.
Initially, the provider isolates growth factors from the patient's blood. (Platelet Rich Plasma PRP). A gentle micro-needling device is then used to create multiple micro-punctures --both driving the isolated growth factors into the skin & creating a stimulus for tightening and rejuvenation of the collagen of the face. The provider then paints more of the growth factors onto the micro-punctures so that the growth factors soak into the tissue for further stimulation of tightening and skin rejuvenation. This procedure is best for patients with tone and texture issues.
Yes, it can!
Microneedling involves the insertion of very fine short needles into the skin for the purposes of enhancing absorption of products.
We recommend Microneedling with PRP and Microneedling combined with DEP (DermoElectroPoration) and Collagen and Vitamin C. These topicals will penetrate better into the skin and build collagen. When combined with ThermiSmooth Radiofrequency tissues will tighten over the course of months.
Blood is drawn and plasma is extracted. The practitioner then injects the PRP into the under-eye area which will stimulate the production of new collagen to those areas without the risks associated with hyaluronic acid fillers. Three to Four treatments are recommended four to six weeks a part.
