What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
This new procedure is all the rage, using your own platelets and plasma (taken from a small sample of your blood), to stimulate collagen and improve the skin’s texture and elasticity. This is great for thin crepey skin, especially around the eyes, neck, décolletage, full face and hands in order to produce a rejuvenating and tightening effect on your skin. With the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) facelift (aka PRP Facelift), you will see your aging skin transform — skin that has become discolored or sags will become smooth and rosey.
Why might you choose the PRP Facelift?
For some patients, a surgical facelift isn’t the best option. With dermal fillers, we can return the youthful volume to your face and give you back your beautiful facial shape. And the scientific use of stem cells really gives the PRP Facelift its impact. Stem cells are the building blocks of the body, facilitating healing and stimulating the growth of new tissue. These stem cells can be used to encourage your body to create new, younger skin cells. A unipotent stem cell encourages the growth of the specific cells against which they’re placed — place them on the skin, and your body can grow new skin! As the process goes on, you’ll see your skin color improve as new blood vessels form, and collagen will form in the skin to give that plump look associated with youth.
The treatment itself in-office takes about an hour and you will generally require one treatment every 4-6 months. In some circumstances the frequency may increase in cases such as hair restoration, severe acne treatments or graduated facial skin resurfacing.
In other words, these treatments may be necessary in multiple sessions depending on the condition being treated PRP+CIT primarily is very safe because we are using your own blood “with no introduction of other chemicals” and so there is no chance of an allergic reaction or serious side-effects from the platelet rich plasma.
