Do You Show Any Of These Signs of Aging?
- Skin color becomes more gray because of less blood flow.
- Facial Shape becomes collapsed and droopy as muscle and collagen decrease.
- Skin texture becomes less smooth. As a result, the person looks “worn”, or “tired” or “droopy.” The lively, rosy hue (seen plainly in playing children of every skin color and in young adults) fades to a dull gray.
Cosmetic surgery can remove excess skin, making the person appear younger. But, a surgical facelift can be excessive for some people (especially when loss of shape without extra skin is the main problem).
Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers lift the skin away from the bone to restore youthful volume and shape. But HA fillers can cause problems when used near the eye. Also, the injector can chase a wrinkle incorrectly and create a shape to a person’s face that looks foreign.
The HA fillers do very little to improve skin tone and texture.
Unlike most procedures, PRP Treatment – Facelift (R) offers a way of both restoring shape, and improving tone and texture, as well as literally rejuvenating new and younger tissue.
This is how it’s done…
3 Steps of PRP Treatment – FaceLift Procedure
First, the injector (1) uses HA fillers to create a beautiful shape. (2) Then, the physician isolates growth factors from the patients blood. (3) When these growth factors enter the face (injected by the physician), then multi-potent stem cells become activated to grow new tissue. This new tissue includes new collagen, new fatty tissue (for smoothness), and new blood vessels (for a healthy glow).
1. Creating A Beautiful And Natural Shape
In the first part of PRP Treatment – FaceLift procedure, the physician uses an Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler (like Restylane or Juvederm) in a very specific way to sculpt a younger appearing face–while still keeping the shape natural.
We take into account the mathematics of beauty as defined by research (starting with the notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci) to avoid creating an unnatural shape at all costs.
After creating a younger, natural shape, then the physician harvests from the woman’s own blood growth factors that her body would normally use to heal damaged tissue.
2. Isolating & Activating the PRP from Your Blood
First, the physician draws about 2 teaspoons of blood.
Then, using a centrifuge, the physician isolates platelets from that blood (platelet-rich plasma or PRP)–all within about 10 minutes in the office!
Then she “activates” those platelets to cause the release from the platelets of at least 8 growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue.
These growth factors work like magic to cause increased collagen & new blood flow. To rejuvenate new skin, these growth factors must be put back into your face.
3. Injecting the PRP into Your Face
Using numbing cream and a very small needle (for almost no pain), the physician injects the woman’s own growth factors back into her face in a particular way. These growth factors then activate multipotent stem cells already in the skin (tricking them into “thinking” there’s been an injury and new younger tissue should generated).
The multipotent stem cells then develop into new collagen, new blood vessels, and new fatty tissue trying to “repair” the skin that was never injured.
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!
