The Marvelous Healing Powers of Growth Factors

Growth factors and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) have marvelous healing powers — they can repair damaged tissues and promote cell growth. Growth factors are naturally occurring proteins that stimulate cell division and tissue regeneration. PRP is a concentration of growth factors derived from the patient’s blood. When injected into damaged or aging tissues, PRP can stimulate the growth of new collagen, elastin, and blood vessels, resulting in a firmer, smoother, and more youthful appearance.

What is PRP Facelift?

PRP facelift combines the regenerative powers of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) with the volumizing effects of dermal fillers. During the procedure, PRP is extracted from the patient’s blood and processed to concentrate the growth factors. Then, dermal fillers are strategically injected to restore volume and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. Finally, the concentrated PRP is injected to stimulate collagen production. While dermal fillers produce instant results, the PRP serum boosts the results with natural, internal healing.

Benefits of PRP Facelift:

  • Non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure
  • Uses the patient’s own blood, reducing the risk of adverse reactions or allergies
  • Provides natural-looking results without altering facial features
  • Stimulates collagen and elastin production for long-lasting rejuvenation
  • Can be combined with other treatments for enhanced results
  • Requires little to no downtime, allowing for a quick return to daily activities
  • Safe and effective for all skin types and tones

PRP Facelift Treats:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, and décolletage
  • Sagging skin and loss of volume in the cheeks, under the eyes, and around the mouth
  • Uneven skin texture and tone caused by scarring, acne, or sun damage
  • Dull and dehydrated skin due to aging or environmental factors
  • Dark circles and puffiness under the eyes
  • Enlarged pores and excess oil production
  • Uneven skin pigmentation and age spots

The Combined Power of PRP & Dermal Fillers

The PRP facelift harnesses the combined power of PRP and dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm. PRP contains a high concentration of growth factors responsible for tissue regeneration, collagen production, and cell proliferation. When injected into the skin, PRP can trigger the production of new collagen and elastin, leading to improved skin texture, tone, and elasticity. Dermal fillers add volume and structure to the face. They are made of hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the body and helps maintain skin hydration and elasticity.

When injected into specific areas of the face, dermal fillers can instantly smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, enhance facial contours, and restore a more youthful appearance. The combination of PRP and dermal fillers in the PRP facelift provides a comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation, addressing both the underlying causes of aging and the visible signs of aging. The PRP amplifies the effects of dermal fillers by stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin, leading to a more natural-looking and longer-lasting outcome.
