The PRP FaceLift: Platelet Rich Plasma therapy for facial rejuvenation
What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial Rejuvenation Therapy, also known as the Vampire Facelift introduced by Dr C. Runels? This is what it entails. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets. Platelets contain growth factors; when applied to the skin, they can stimulate the growth of collagen. Collagen plumps the skin, giving it a youthful and supple appearance. PRP for facial rejuvenation can be used with wrinkles and areas around the eyes, mouth, cheeks, neck, and jawline. In the case of the FaceLift the PRP is injected under the skin, usually the cheeks, to enhance any fillers used along with rejuvenating the skin.
How is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) made?
First, blood is withdrawn from the patient into tubes.Platelets for PRP are made from the patient's own blood. It is similar to a patient donating his or her blood before a surgical procedure. This is what the process entails.
Next, the blood is placed in a centrifuge and is spun around.
The centrifuge process concentrates the red and white blood cells and platelets in different levels in the tubes. Blood plasma that is rich in platelets is taken out and is readied for the application process.
How is PRP used for facial rejuvenation?
First, your skin is assessed and prepared for treatment. Then, anesthetic cream is placed on the face about 15 minutes before the procedure. Next, blood plasma that has gone through the PRP process is injected in target areas. The actual procedure takes about 20 minutes to a full hour depending on your treatment plan.
What are the expected results associated with PRP facial rejuvenation?
Improvement of skin fullness, texture, and tone can be noticeable within a few weeks of treatment.
Who are good candidates for PRP for facial rejuvenation?
