When you think of facelifts, you likely bring to mind those pictures of distorted features and faces that do not move. We want to offer you a different option to surgery. All of our facelift protocols are performed without surgery. They are designed to stimulate the growth of collagen. Collagen is a type of fibrous protein in the body that works together with elastin to provide your skin’s strength and elasticity. As skin ages, it begins to become thinner, and as a result of the breakdown of collagen, fine lines and wrinkles appear. Stimulating the growth of collagen can help remove the visible signs of aging in the face.
STEM CELL FACELIFT
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a cosmetic treatment that involves a type of regenerative medicine that uses platelets from your own blood to rejuvenate the skin. It is a natural approach to volumizing your face, reducing fine lines and making subtle textural changes to your skin. Platelets play a role in stopping bleeding and in repairing damaged cells in the body. They contain substances called “growth factors” that activate and rejuvenate cells in our body. Unlike various fillers of synthetic origin, PRP uses the patient’s natural biology to address aging skin and volume loss, quickly triggering production of new cells and collagen formation. Since PRP is made from the patient’s own blood, there is no risk for rejection, infection, or allergic reaction. This cutting-edge facial rejuvenation is a quick 20-minute procedure. Approximately 6 vials of blood are drawn from the patient after which it’s spun down in a centrifuge for 6 minutes at a predetermined speed to retrieve the most viable fibrin and platelets. The platelet and fibrin component of the blood (the top layer) is extracted, which is then injected into targeted areas of the face, neck and hands. The complete PRP Facelift procedure begins with skin cleansing and exfoliation after which topical anesthesia is applied just before the procedure. The final touches are made as the treatment concludes with a facial.
