What Is a PRP Face-lift?

If you’re looking for a quick and effective way to reinvigorate your appearance, non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures are the way to go.

PRP, also known as Plasma, reverses al the common aging signs in the skin specifically in the areas of the face, neck, and hands. The therapy uses the patient's own blood making the treatment hypoallergenic.

Healthy blood in the body contains natural growth factors, Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is concentrated from your blood, providing plasma that is rich in platelets and growth factors and that stimulate a stem cell response.

Using your own blood, the high concentration used during PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapy can effectively boost the skin’s ability to rejuvenate without surgery and medication. And because your own blood is used the treatment is hypoallergenic. The platelets release healing proteins called growth factors, used by the cells to accelerate tissue repair and improve wound healing. The PRP treatment encourages the body to use its own healing processes more effectively, rejuvenating tired, aged skin and replacing damaged skin cells with new ones much faster than the body could normally achieve. This stem cell response improves the skin’s integrity by stimulating the growth of new collagen and blood vessels to repair and revitalize damaged skin. PRP treatments can rejuvenate the skin to address fine lines, uneven skin tone, scarring, acne, hyperpigmentation and can help in slowing down and reversing the signs of aging.

Micro-needling used in conjunction with topical PRP for facial rejuvenation

Micro-needling, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure using a device containing fine needles. The needles puncture the skin at various depths to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that stimulates neovascularization and neocollagenesis to fill these microscopic wounds.

The growth factors and cytokines in turn stimulate collagen, elastin, and neovascularization. Studies have shown that micro-needling initiates collagen synthesis

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a highly concentrated autologous serum that is rich in growth factors and cytokines such as platelet-derived growth factor, transforming growth factor, insulin-like growth factor, and vascular endothelial growth factor. These growth factors regulate and induce cell migration, attachment proliferation, and differentiation as well as promote extracellular matrix accumulation.

After a couple of days of redness and swelling, improvement is noted in skin firmness and radiance. Most significant improvement is at the 1 month posttreatment period with improvement of fine lines, skin texture, and hydration as well as subtle skin tightening.

A proposed mechanism for this optimal outcome may be that the additional growth factors and cytokines from the PRP act synergistically with the already stimulated neocollagenesis secondary to the needling leading to more rapid collagen remodeling.  Although there is noticeable improvement with just 1 treatment, a series of 4 to 6 treatment sessions 1 month apart is recommended for a more optimal outcome.
