Collagen is a protein in your body that plays a vital role in the firmness and elasticity of your skin. As we age, collagen production starts to decrease. As a result, you may see fine lines, wrinkles, loose and deflated skin.
A prime example, the cheeks will start to flatten over time and the skin may look saggy. This is what we call age-related volume loss in the midface. A PRP Facelift® is a great way to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin and deeper dermal tissue.

How does the PRP Facelift® work?
The PRP Facelift® uses platelet rich plasma (PRP), which is isolated from the patient’s own blood using a centrifuge. Activation of the PRP results in release of at least 8 different growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue. These growth facts work like magic go increase collagen and elastin, promote angiogenesis (or the formation of new blood vessels) and improve blood flow to create that youthful appearance that comes with healthier, plumper tissue.

The Day of your Procedure

Inject the Filler
Next, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed with alcohol and an antibacterial soap. Next, the physician will inject Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler in a very specific way to sculpt a younger appearing face, while still keeping your natural shape.
Inject the PRP
Finally, the physician injects the woman’s own growth factors (PRP) back into her face in a particular way to generate new tissue.
Since the PRP Facelift utilizes our body’s own growth factors to rejuvenate tissue, we can expect active regeneration for about 3 months after the procedure. HA fillers typically lasts 1 year. The overall effects of the PRP Facelift can last for over a year.
