Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP, works by combining a dermal filler with the patient’s natural plasma to boost the effects dermal fillers. Adding plasma to your filler treatment increases the already present benefits of fillers by making it more receptive to the body. PRP treatments can produce more natural-looking results simply and effectively.
What Is a PRP Facelift?
PRP works to create healthier skin in a completely natural way. A small amount of blood is drawn from the client and spun in a centrifuge so that concentrated amounts of platelets are combined with a small amount of plasma. This combination is then carefully injected into the skin in the areas you would like to treat.
A PRP Facelift is an injection for the face that is able to enhance the appearance of the skin, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, and also gives a more youthful overall appearance. This non-surgical option lifts the skin, rejuvenates the skin’s texture and tone and increases natural collagen production.
How PRP Differs From Dermal Fillers
PRP Facelifts are more effective than regular dermal fillers on their own because of the way they utilize your body’s own growth factors. The collagen increasing effects that are naturally found in the plasma not only give your skin a lift, but they also improve the appearance of your actual skin. Results will begin to become visible as soon as 24 hours after treatment, even when the dermal fillers haven’t taken full effect. Once the dermal fillers take effect, the plasma will enhance the hyaluronic acid filler and extends its life span.
Benefits of PRP Injections
PRP therapy does not use any pharmaceutical chemicals, strong acids, or plumping agents. The body responds to the introduction of concentrated amounts of blood platelets the same as it would if an injury occurred. The rejuvenation process is entirely natural, yet accelerated.
Certain types of skin rejuvenation treatments can be complicated and involve a lengthy recovery period. Facelifts, deep chemical peels, or laser surgery can keep you from your normal activities, while PRP therapy requires no downtime.
Increased Collagen Production
The natural aging process means our bodies are producing less collagen. Reduction of collagen leads to skin becoming brittle, thinner, and prone to wrinkles. The most significant advantage of PRP therapy over most other skin rejuvenation treatments is the skin’s ability to produce more collagen resulting in a youthful appearance quickly.
While the treatment itself only takes a few minutes to complete, the results of PRP therapy are long-lasting. Many patients have results that last for more than one year after just one or two treatment sessions. Multiple treatments will enable your results to last as long as possible.
PRP therapy uses nothing more than your own blood, meaning that there are no risks of your body rejecting the injections.
PRP Facial VS. PRP Facelift
Concentrated plasma can be used in a variety of treatments to encourage healing and stimulate cell growth.
PRP Facial. PRP is applied to the skin through microneedling. This treatment is ideal for overall skin rejuvenation, including improvement to scarring, fine lines, and brown spots. This option is more superficial than the facelift.
PRP Facelift. PRP is combined with a dermal filler and injected into the skin. This treatment is ideal for patients hoping to improve volume loss and add youthful height and curves to their cheeks. The filler adds lift and volume, and the platelet-rich plasma helps build collagen scaffolding over time to support new volume.
