Turning Back the Hands of Time Without Surgery

Avoid Surgery

Nature's Youthful Lift: Turning Back the Hands of Time

Let’s face it–we all want to look good, to look our very best no matter what our age. So we diet, exercise, stay out of the sun, and use sunscreen. We do all those things we are supposed to do to take care of ourselves, but unfortunately, the hands of time keeps on ticking and we are still aging. Those fine lines and wrinkles just aren’t responding to the facial creams and lotions like they used to. On top of all this, you know you don’t have the money to invest in a surgical facelift and are not sure you would even want to, considering you may not end up with the desired results. Also, who wants weeks of painful recovery?  It seems like the options are few and far between. Or are they?

What if I told you there is a simple outpatient therapy that typically takes about 90 minutes that could give your complexion a whole new youthful glow and erase years off your face without pain, cutting, bruising or surgery? And…. it costs a mere fraction of a standard facelift?

PRP: Providing You with Options To Regain Your Youthful Look

I am passionate about my patients’ well being.  I am passionate about effective results. This is why I spend extensive time studying and researching evidenced-based therapies and cutting-edge medical practices for my patients. I am interested in going above and beyond the norm in medicine and providing my patients with options for improved health, options that do not include surgery.

I believe that healing patients without surgery is one of the holy grails of medicine.  What is it, you ask? Platelet Rich Plasma – PRP is a novel & unique therapy given at Sarasota Neurology. It is a therapy that can be used to provide great results in a variety of conditions, including regenerating your skin to its former youthful shine.

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) can be used to perform painless, non-invasive, non-surgical facelifts. It is a simple, painless outpatient procedure. With platelet rich plasma, 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.

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 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!

After the PRP Facelift

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 symmetric rejuvenation with a fuller face, erasure of crow’s feet and other facial lines, a smoothing of the skin and improved color tone to the face. Results can be seen as early as two weeks after the procedure.

For maximum benefit, I highly recommend the use of special aesthetic cream and moisturizers. These are available through our office. You will be instructed on the care of your skin and suggested supplements and facial skin creams 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 non-surgical PRP facelift are as minimal.
