PRP Facelift

Throughout our lives, exposure to the sun and pollution gradually takes a toll. After a certain point in life, skin cells are no longer able to repair themselves as quickly. This results in skin that lacks the elasticity it once did. The skin also begins to produce less collagen as a person ages. This results in a loss of volume. If you smoke or have smoked in your lifetime, the aging process is greatly sped up by this bad habit. Wrinkles, loss of volume, and a loss of firmness result from bad habits like drinking, smoking, and sun exposure. Fine lines around the eyes, wrinkles and frown lines on the forehead, and nasolabial lines around the mouth can all contribute to a drooping, aged appearance. A lack of color and suppleness in the skin may also be seen due to aging and sun damage.

These signs of aging, when combined, add up to a face that doesn’t look as youthful as it once did. Years and years of poor skin care habits along with the normal aging process adds up over time even though the skin does its best for as long as it can to keep producing collagen. Once elasticity in the skin is damaged, though, it doesn’t always recover. If you use skin care products that are irritating, this can also result in skin cell death. While it is almost next to impossible to go through life without any form of damage to your skin, it’s never too late to treat damage that has been done and form healthier skin care habits going forward.

A safe and powerful solution for treating the signs of aging that you may be experiencing is the Platelet Rich Plasma Facelift. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. PRP Facelift at Manhattan Laser Spa is performed by highly trained professionals who understand the contours of the face as well as what changes are needed to bring back a youthful, refreshed appearance. Before beginning, a local anesthetic will be administered to ensure your comfort and reduce any pain. Then a small amount of blood from your arm (approximately two teaspoons) will be drawn and placed in a machine called a centrifuge. The centrifuge will separate platelet rich plasma from the rest of the blood. The platelets are then activated by the doctor, which will cause them to release powerful growth factors into the skin that are responsible for increased collagen production. Once separated and processed, the platelet rich plasma will be carefully injected into the treatment areas of the face. This is done strategically to optimize best results where it is needed. A tiny needle is used and once the growth factors are injected into the skin, they “turn on” multipotent skin cells within the skin. This contributes to a powerful process that will make the skin produce more collagen and perform like younger, healthier skin. The entire treatment will take around twenty minutes from beginning to end.

The Beauty of the PRP Facelift

Unlike many other cosmetic treatments that give powerful results, PRP Facelift doesn’t require any downtime whatsoever. You can treat yourself to this treatment during your lunch break and return to work the same day. The results of PRP Facelift can be seen over the next few weeks, as the skin gradually benefits from increased collagen production, a more youthful glow, and firmness to the skin.

While some people need a face lift to turn back the clock, others simply don’t need such a drastic procedure. Face lifts tighten the skin, which can be too harsh for some individuals. While fillers plump the skin, sometimes the result can be something that doesn’t look natural for the individual’s face. This is where PRP Facelift comes in – it can sometimes be the perfect, optimal solution for addressing specific aging concerns. Because it uses your body’s own platelet rich plasma, side effects are virtually nil and you can enjoy a safe and worry-free procedure. It not only works to restore a more youthful appearance, but it also rejuvenates the tissue and encourages it to perform like younger, healthier tissue. A natural and beautiful result from a face lift can be found in PRP Facelift.

It is the perfect time of year to treat yourself to something that will make a real difference in how you feel about yourself. Generally, two to three treatments are recommended to obtain the results you’re looking for and this will be discussed during the time of your treatment. Your treatment plan will be tailored specifically to your individual needs. The results can be enjoyed for approximately two to three years depending on your lifestyle habits. Refraining from smoking and sun exposure is encouraged to enjoy the results of the treatment for as long as possible. No allergic reactions can be experienced from PRP Facelift because it uses your body’s own platelet rich plasma. Unlike many other anti-aging procedures, PRP Facelift doesn’t cause painful swelling and bruising that require lots of downtime.
