We can always thank “My Fair Lady,” an oldie, but definitive classic goodie, for settling the importance of semantics. Names, titles, and terms can be the source of argument in almost every area of life – hence the “potato, patato, tomato, tamato,” example. The world of aesthetics is no exception! In the innovative, yet natural PRP treatment process of reversing the signs of aging, encouraging collagen production and achieving luminous skin, some call it a PRP Facelift, while others refer to it as a PRP Facial.
The process of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) encourages the body’s natural regeneration process. Although PRP can be used to address sports injuries and hair loss, the use of PRP injections is becoming increasingly notable as a means of facial cosmetic improvement because the treatment process is nonsurgical. In fact, PRP facials are becoming increasingly popular because of the fact that they are minimally invasive with virtually no bruising, swelling or pain.
The treatment requires the drawing of a patient’s growth factors which is extracted, then placed in a centrifuge to spin. This separates red blood cells from platelet-rich plasma. Once re-entered into the patient’s face, platelet-rich plasma immediately goes to work, with noticeable results occurring as early as within the next couple of days. The procedure itself can be done quickly – during a lunch break or on the way home from work.
Whether you call it a PRP facelift or facial, PRP has the capability to smooth skin and help diminish wrinkles.
Here are 5 reasons why recipients of a PRP facelift are advocates of the procedure:
