The PRP Facelift: FAQs

The PRP Facelift: FAQs

October 18, 2019 ajcohenmd

The PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) facelift is a non-invasive and safe rejuvenation treatment because it is autologous. Autologous refers to the procedure using blood plasma from your own body in order to rejuvenate the skin. If you are looking to receive a facelift near Lincoln Park, continue reading to see if we have answered some of your questions regarding the PRP facelift.

How Does PRP Rejuvenate The Skin?

The platelets in PRP are nutrient-rich cells, so they are able to stimulate the regeneration of the underlying structural integrity of your skin. The growth factors work to stimulate the release of the skin’s own stem cells. Ultimately, the skin will create new blood vessels, new collagen growth, and new skin cell growth.

What Are The Ideal Treatment Points?

If you are considering a PRP facelift, but are not sure what the treatment points may be, here are some ideal reasons for PRP:

  • Sun-damaged skin or sun spots
  • Wrinkles, fine lines, scars on the face/neck/hands or acne scarring
  • Crepey or sagging skin from aging
  • Crow’s feet or dark circles under your eyes

How Long Does The Process Take?

The procedure takes less than one hour of your time as the extraction processing of your blood only takes 20 minutes. The treatment application takes around 30 minutes, allowing you to be in and out of our office within an hour. You may need three sessions for optimal results, and you’d ideally do one session per month.
