What is a PRP facelift?

A PRP facelift combines microneedling and the skin-renewing capacity of PRP, extracted from a small sample of your own blood. PRP is loaded with natural growth factors that send a signal to the skin cells to develop new blood vessels and produce a higher abundance of collagen fibers for the ultimate in natural skin rejuvenation.

What is PRP? How does it work to renew your skin?

Your blood contains numerous life-giving elements, two of which have been scientifically proven to aid in the regeneration and rejuvenation of skin. PRP is made through an in-house process where those two elements, called platelets and growth factors, are concentrated into a serum that can be used to stimulate rapid growth and regeneration in a targeted area. PRP has been used for decades for various medical treatments, to speed healing, and to improve health in specific areas. Modern medical advances now allow us to harness the power of PRP for skin regeneration and rejuvenation with the PRP facelift.

What is a PRP facelift like to experience?

The first step in your skin renewing treatment is a blood draw, like what you would experience with a normal blood sample. The blood is then processed to extract the PRP. The PRP can be applied to the skin after microneedling, or in some cases, is injected directly into the skin with a very fine needle. You will not experience any significant discomfort, and a numbing anesthetic cream can be applied if you are sensitive.

What can a PRP facelift do for my skin?

Your treatment will be customized to match your skin condition and quality. In some cases, hyaluronic acid fillers are part of the treatment. Dr. Tseng will evaluate your skin quality, the level of laxity, the depth of the wrinkles and lines or sagging, and advise you of how to best restore a more youthful, refreshed look. With our custom PRP facelift, you can expect:

  • Refreshed, more youthful skin
  • Increased levels of collagen and elastin for firmer, more resilient skin
  • Improved skin texture
  • Skin tone more even 
  • Reduced appearance of age spots
  • Reduced wrinkles and fine lines
  • Firmer, more supple, youthful skin
  • Reduced appearance of large pores
  • Fewer blemish breakouts

Recovery time after a PRP facelift: What to expect

After your PRP facial, your skin will be reddened due to the microneedling, which is a short-term side effect. Most people feel and look fine by the following day, although everyone varies slightly in how the skin heals.

Does a PRP facelift work on saggy, aging skin?

If your facial skin has deeply etched lines and creases, jowls, and lax, saggy skin, your skin will improve in quality with a PRP facelift, but you may need a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation treatment. You can be confident in the skills and array of procedures offered by Dr. Tseng, from surgical to non-surgical.
