PRP Facelift and Facial with Microneedling

A PRP Facelift / Facial was coined a few years ago and is a trade name for Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy to rejuvenate the skin using the human body’s natural platelet rich plasma.

What is a PRP?

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma which is a component of your own blood. PRP contains very high levels of Platelets, growth factors and active proteins that heal skin tissue and physical injuries. Dr. Sypien, MD utilizes PRP technology to repair damaged skin using the body’s own natural healing agents (PRP) through tiny PRP injections directly in to the damaged skin through the use of a Micropen.

How does PRP work to rejuvenate the human skin?

Dr. Sypien. MD draws a small amount of blood from your body and processes it in centrifuge to separate the components into eight growth factors and proteins. PRP is then injected using a tiny needle on the Micropen directly in to the damaged area. These tiny injections trigger the production of collagen and elastin to add volume to the skin resulting in thicker dermis. This added volume dramatically reduces the appearance of fine lines and facial creases through the treatment process.

What are the benefits of PRP face rejuvenation?

  • Reduction in wrinkles and fine lines
  • Produces an overall toning of the skin
  • Reduces “crow’s feet” and dark circles under the eyes
  • Repairs acne scarring and rosacea
  • Increases tightness and hydration
  • Illuminates the skin with an overall glowing appearance

How many treatments are recommended?

Dr. Sypien, MD evaluates patient’s individual factors at the Ageless MedSpa including age, gender, sun exposure, smoking and health history to determine the optimum number of procedures to achieve the desired results. Most patients will need between 3-6 treatments for best results.

How often can I get the procedure?

We recommend 1 treatment every 4-6 weeks to give the skin time to heal between procedures.

Are there any side effects?

PRP facial rejuvenation is a safe and effective procedure that uses the body’s natural healing power (growth factors). The most common side effects are mild swelling and a mild “sunburnt” feeling for 3-7 days following the procedure. PRP is extracted from your own blood which eliminates the risk of disease transmission, allergic reaction or immune reaction. There are certain patients with health conditions or blood disorders which may limit its use.
