What is a PRP Facelift?
A platelet-rich plasma facelift (or PRP facelift) is an exciting new breakthrough in non-surgical medical facelifts that harnesses the power of your own blood to help rejuvenate the skin on your face and stimulate new growth of healthier and younger-looking skin.
The PRP is extracted from a sample of your blood and injected into target areas in the face. PRP is concentrated blood plasma that is enriched with growth factors to stimulate the healing process.
Benefits of a PRP Facelift
A PRP face lift is a process that involves injecting your own blood into the treatment area to rejuvenate your skin. Instead of invasive surgical procedures, we use your own blood to restore your skin. Our PRP facelift is perfect for men and women looking to look a little younger. There are many advantages to this procedure such as:
- A low risk of infection, since we are using your own blood
- Very little (if any) downtime after the procedure
- No scars or incisions
- No stay in a hospital
- The entire procedure takes as little as 30 to 60 minutes to complete
- Proven to restore skin’s smoothness and tightness
- Utilizes growth factors to kick start cell activity
How Does a PRP Facelift Work?
We take a small sample of your blood and pull out the collagen and keratin from it. These promote skin strength and elasticity. Normally, these two compounds naturally begin to break down over time. This is what causes the signs of aging to show. Once these powerful growth factors are pulled from your own blood, they injected into the facelift areas. Since we are injecting your own blood back into you, there’s almost no risk for infection. These injections stimulate skin growth and health, shaving years off your appearance. The PRP facelift from Dr. Christopher Hankins has helped many patients in the Pearland, TX area restore their skin’s youthful look. PRP injections are one of the most effective non-surgical facelifts available today.
Is a PRP Facelift Painful?
You may experience some discomfort since the procedure requires several injections. However, no general anesthetic is required for the procedure. At most, some numbing cream is applied to the area. Most patients don’t feel a thing during the PRP facelift. There may be some minor bruising afterwards, but nothing a little concealing makeup won’t cover up. Luckily, you won’t have to spend days hiding away, convalescing and waiting to heal from surgery. Most patients continue their day after visiting our facility.
PRP Facelift Results
Most patients see results within weeks of the procedure and will see continued improvements over the next several months. Usually, the effectiveness of this facelift will begin to wear off after about two years.
There are a lot of factors that determine how long this procedure will last and how long it will take to see results. When you come in for a consultation, we’ll go over with you what we think you can expect.
Is a PRP Facelift the Right Treatment for Me?
If you answer “yes” to any of these three questions, then you could benefit from this type of treatment:
- Does your skin color become grayish because of less blood flow?
- Does your facial shape appear collapsed?
- Is your skin texture less smooth and, as a result, you appear worn, tired, or droopy?
