AUSTIN PRP FACELIFT
I’m not crazy about the Kardashians, but not a day goes by without someone coming in showing Kylie Jenner’s lips and asking if I can give that to them too. Now it is the PRP FACELIFT.
PRP FaceLift, is also referred to as PRP therapy – which stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. Basically, we take growth factors contained in the platelets in your blood, and use them to stimulate new cell growth and repair throughout your body.
Kim K tweeted a shot of her blood-spattered face after a PRP facial. Her treatment was $1500 and used a 9 needle micro needling device. My treatment is $499, and uses a 32 needle, medical-grade micro needling device. This treatment promotes younger, firmer-looking skin.
The PRP Facial technique is one of our most popular treatments at our Board Certified Plastic Surgeon‘s office. It requires that a nurse draw a small amount of blood from the patient’s arm with a needle, and then will separate the platelets into a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) using a centrifuge. We are basically spinning all of the good juicy stuff to the top, and discarding the rest.
Following our unique medical-grade micro needling treatment, the plasma is then applied topically to the face, (neck and decollate optional) and enters all of the 1000’s of micro channels we created.
In a PRP FaceLIFT, the PRP can also be combined with Restylane or Juvederm, and then injected into the face to stimulate collagen production to create new skin and to remove fine lines and acne scars. The 45-minute PRP Facial or Facelift was given as a gift certificate for this year’s Academy Awards swag bag.
IS THE PRP FACELIFT PAINFUL?
While Kim K hammed it up for the camera and was in extreme pain, our clients sit peacefully and typically do not feel a thing. The PRP Facial | Facelift is a much more aggressive way to improve the quality of skin that say, a regular facial. The price tag is a bit higher (but not “Hollywood” high), and typically clients notice results in a couple of days that last four to six months.
As bad as your face may look on the day of the procedure, it’s remarkable how good people can look the next day.
Also, some medspas aching in on the trend show this procedure with red smears of blood all over the face post-treatment. The mixture is actually yellow, and will not be red if done properly. The red smears all over Kardashian’s face come from not separating the platelets completely, and with blood still in the mixture your results are diluted, and not optimal.
DO YOU SHOW THESE SIGNS OF AGING? A PRP FACELIFT or PRP FACIAL IS FOR YOU!
1. Skin color becomes more gray because of less blood flow.
2. Facial Shape becomes collapsed and droopy as muscle and collagen decrease.
3. 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.
WHY A PRP FACELIFT OR PRP FACIAL?
Younger patients do not necessarily need dermal fillers and volume restoration. In these cases we can use the PRP alone (PRP FACIAL) to stimulate collagen formation and awaken stem cells. All in a 20 minute procedure!
A patient who requires anti-aging along with volume replacement, would want a PRP Facelift instead.
Unlike most procedures, the PRP Facelift (R) offers a way of both restoring shape, and improving tone and texture, as well as literally rejuvenating new and younger tissue!
IS THE PRP FACIAL OR PRP FACELIFT SAFE?
It is very safe and uses your body’s own chemical messengers to repair and rejuvenate your skin!
