YOUTH ENHANCEMENT FACELIFT
PRP micro-needling and facelift: The PRP facelift (aka,Vampire Facelift) is a powerful tool to reverse the aging process. This has the potential to eliminate nasolabial folds, hollow cheeks, baggy eyelids, marionette lines, sagging and wrinkling skin. Unlike surgery, the PRP facelift actually brings youth to your skin on a cellular level.
The genius of the PRP facelift is the way to combines different modalities for maximum outcome. The procedure starts with platelet rich plasma (PRP) micro-needling. Our certified estheticians bring in the highest level of expertise. Next is a targeted injection of PRP from our medical team. These PRP injections are enhanced by a calcium based molecule along with the Umbilical Cord matrix to create a “scaffolding” affect that maximizes the development of new blood vessels, fat cells and collagen to reverse tissue damage.
What is PRP: Platelet Rich Plasma Protein
Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells. The PRP, injected into specific areas of the skin, act as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, restores tissue, and thus acts as to naturally smooth and tighten the skin.
