  • Little to no swelling, bruising or lumping
  • Stimulates collagen production to naturally reduce or eliminate wrinkles and lines

The process for platelet rich plasma (PRP) facelift is simple.  A small portion of blood is drawn from the patient’s arm and placed in a specialized centrifuge for processing.   The area to be treated with have a numbing cream applied prior to procedure.  PRP is injected into the areas of concern and platelet poor plasma is used as a lubricant for microneedling the entire skin surface.  Every procedure is discussed between you and your provider to choose the best options for you!

Pros of PRP Facelift:

  • Topical  anesthetic
  • Short procedure: lasts between 30 and 60 minutes
