Nature’s Youthful Lift: Non-Surgical, All-Natural Face Lift

Save Thousands of Dollars and Avoid Surgery!

Surgical websitelifts have been performed for decades on patients who want to look younger and more youthful.

Unfortunately, facelifts are highly invasive procedures on the face…

  • requiring multiple incisions
  • rearranging fat and muscle tissue
  • altering bone structure
  • and finally trimming then pulling tight the skin over the face.

Patients who have undergone a complete facelift frequently looked bruised and traumatized because of what is involved in a routine surgical facelift.

Standard facelifts have many risks. The biggest is that the cosmetic outcome may not be what was hoped for, possibly requiring even more surgery or use of collagen fillers. Infection, facial swelling, scarring and nerve damage are also possible risks. Typically it takes several weeks for healing and clearing of the physical evidence of surgery.

A Safe, All-Natural Face Lift with PRP

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a novel therapy that can be used to perform non-surgical facelifts. With platelet rich plasma, a patient’s blood is drawn and the platelets are extracted into a small amount of blood plasma. Platelets contain numerous beneficial, natural growth factors, cytokines and mitogens that aid in healing and tissue regeneration. As the PRP is derived from the patient’s own blood, there is no risk for rejection or disease transmission.

The procedure is a simple outpatient therapy that typically takes about 90 minutes for the complete, unique therapy given at Sarasota Neurology. The patient comes in and has their blood drawn. While the blood is being processed into PRP, the patient has a topical anesthetic put on their face and neck. There are no injections and this is a painless procedure.

After the face is anesthetized, the skin overlying the face, forehead and neck are prepped to receive the PRP. The platelet concentrate is then applied to the face and in a specialized technique, administered into the subcutaneous tissue. Once the PRP has been applied, it is activated with thrombin, a naturally occurring protein that causes the platelets to release their many growth factors and start the tissue regeneration process. The last step involves applying a natural protein mask to the face to allow the maximum growth factor concentration into the subcutaneous tissue. After the procedure is completed, moisturizing cream is applied and the patient may go home. There is no down time, no recovery time and no pain.

After the natural PRP facelift, some individuals may experience slight swelling, redness or minimal tingling discomfort but this passes quickly, usually within an hour or so. The procedure is complete and the facelift occurs naturally over the next 8 weeks. Since the PRP is applied evenly over the face, around the eye, brow, cheeks and neck, there is a symmetrical facial tissue rejuvenation. With getting a PRP facelift, one not need to be concerned about the outcome as the body is regenerating its own collagen and subcutaneous facial tissue. The end result is a fuller face, erasure of crow’s feet and other facial lines, a smoothing of the skin and a more even color tone to the face. Results can be seen as early as two weeks after the procedure.

For maximum benefit, use of special aesthetic cream and moisturizers is highly recommended. These are available through our office. You will be instructed on the care of your skin and suggested supplements to get the most out of your non-surgical PRP facelift. With proper care and use of sunblock, the beneficial, youthful effects of PRP can last up to 18 months. Some report even as long as 2 years. The good news is that there is no limit on the number of times that you can have PRP applied for facial rejuvenation, unlike that of surgical facelifts which are limited to 2-3 procedures at the most. Better yet, the risks of getting a PRP facelift are as minimal as possible.

If you would like a more natural youthful look, non-surgical platelet rich plasma facelift may be ideal for you. Contact our office for an appointment.
