As we age, our face may go through undesirable changes. The skin can lose elasticity, which can cause wrinkles, sagging, and loss of volume. For those interested in rejuvenating their facial appearance, the PRP non-surgical is a great option. The goal of this procedure is to give you a more youthful face without traditional facelift surgery.
The PRP Non-surgical Facelift is a procedure that uses your own blood to help boost the youthful appearance of your face. This procedure helps grow new tissue which smooths skin texture and encourages the growth of new blood vessels to provide a beautiful healthy glow!
We sample a small quantity of your blood and immediately centrifuge it in order to extract the plasma concentrated in platelets. This plasma is then injected by mesotherapy in the areas requiring treatment. A PRP session lasts approximately 1 hour.
In the first part of the PRP Non-surgical facelift procedure, the board certified physicians at Midwest Anti-Aging and Med Spa use a dermal filler, such as Restylane or Juvederm to sculpt a younger appearing face. Next, the physician draws about 2 teaspoons of the patient’s blood. After the blood has been drawn, the physician isolates platelets from that blood (platelet-rich plasma PRP) using a centrifuge located in the office. The platelets are then “activated” to cause the release of several growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue. These growth factors work to cause increased collagen & new blood flow. To rejuvenate new skin, these growth factors must be put back into your face.
The final step in the PRP non-surgical facelift is to inject these growth factors back into the patient’s face. Using a numbing cream and a very small needle results in little to no pain during this procedure. After the injection, the growth factors activate stem cells that are naturally found in the skin. The stem cells are tricked into thinking there’s been an injury, so they begin to generate new tissue.
The result…younger-appearing skin!
The effects of the procedure improve for 2 to 3 months and last for at least 1 to 2 years!
