PRP: An Alternative to Surgery

Nature's Youthful Lift: An Alternative to Surgery

It’s unfortunate, but true—age discrimination exists, particularly in the job market. That’s why baby boomers are getting more plastic surgery than ever before.  They are looking for the competitive edge in the job market trying to fight this current recession with any and every weapon at their disposal, even if it means going under the knife.

What if there were a way to avoid the pain and risk of surgery and regain your youthful glow with minimal to no downtime and much smaller investment of your hard-earned income? There is…and it’s called Nature’s Youthful Lift™.

Nature’s Youthful Lift™

Nature’s Youthful Lift is a non-surgical face-lift. It is an outpatient procedure that takes less than 90 minutes and is performed at my office. The results will astound you and the price will too!

Sound too good to be true? Well, it’s not. As a passionate and committed neurologist, I have endeavored my whole career to provide my patients with leading-edge care and therapies that provide outstanding results without surgery. I am not opposed to surgery, but if there is a way to provide the same results without cutting, I choose that method.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is that method. PRP has garnered attention over the years of researchers looking for ways to help the body heal and regenerate through safe, more natural mechanism. I consider PRP to be a real holy grail in medicine – healing and generating damaged body tissue through concentrating the body’s own healing power. There are many, many ways PRP can be used to help the body. Right now, I want to focus on PRP’s amazing regenerative effects on the body’s skin system.

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) can be used to perform non-surgical facelifts. With PRP, a patient’s blood is drawn and the platelets are extracted into a small amount of your own blood plasma. Platelets contain numerous beneficial, natural growth factors and chemical messengers 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.

Now back to the actual procedure. It is a simple outpatient treatment that typically takes about 90 minutes.  The patient comes in and has their blood drawn. While the blood is being processed into PRP, the patient has a topical anesthetic (numbing medication) put on their face and neck. There are no injections and this is a painless procedure.

After the face is anesthetized, the skin on the face, forehead and neck are prepped to receive the PRP. The platelet concentrate (PRP) is then applied to the face and in a specialized painless 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 collagen mask to the face to allow the maximum growth factor penetration 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! Simple, painless, and effective! I also highly recommend an ongoing skin care regime after the PRP to maintain the glowing results. The products are available in my office.

The Results

Now on to the exciting part! Over the next 6-8 weeks, PRP will naturally regenerate and rejuvenate your skin and subcutaneous tissue, putting more collagen in your skin and giving you a more youthful appearance. And that’s not all. It will also erase the sun damage and fine wrinkles lines. PRP also helps the skin improve its tone, color and quality.

If you think you maybe a candidate or want to give yourself an edge in this current economy, then contact my office and schedule your consultation right away.
