Facial Therapy Facelift
The Facelift, also known as facial therapy, is a non-surgical way to rejuvenate your skin by harnessing your own body’s natural healing and regenerative properties.
What is a Facelift?
The Facelift is an innovative procedure that enhances facial volume by using a combination of hyaluronic acid, such as Juvederm, and platelet-rich plasma.
This is the key ingredient of the Facelift is derived from the patient’s own blood. The process begins with a normal blood draw. It’s is a biologic isolated from whole blood that is preferentially enriched for platelets. While platelets are the primary component, preparations may also contain other cellular components such as white blood cells (WBCs) and peripheral stem cells. These components all play a biological role in the healing process and are provided at concentrated levels.
This is commonly used in the medical field for its ability to heal wounds and injuries. Furthermore, it also stimulates the body’s natural collagen production and tissue regeneration. This makes the Facial Therapy an ideal natural serum to rejuvenate facial volume and skin quality by increasing blood supply, stimulating collagen production and regenerating tissue. The overall effect leaves your face looking healthy and beautiful.
Areas the Facelift Can Treat
The Facelift can address a number of common cosmetic facial issues, including:
- Smile lines
- Frown lines
- Forehead wrinkles
- Crow’s feet
- Wrinkles on the nose (bunny lines)
- Lines at the corner of the mouth
Am I a Candidate for a Facelift?
The facelift is a highly effective, non-surgical solution for several aesthetic issues of the face. However, the treatment may not be ideal for everyone. Depending on your unique circumstances, your cosmetic goals may be better served with other solutions, such as botulinum toxin.
All Facial Treatments are Not Created Equal
The technique used for isolating and concentrating platelets has a direct impact on growth factor availability and functionality.
Test tube systems, Lab centrifuges and many other so-called “Facial Treatment” Systems fail to achieve the threshold of platelet concentration and white blood cell composition required.
Similar to Facial Therapy, platelet-rich fibrin is an all-natural, solution that can treat areas that show the first signs of aging, like under-eye hollows and deflated cheeks. Therefore, it contains high concentrations of white cells and fibrin and contains more platelets for longer-term benefits. When injected into the skin, they promote your own collagen to grow and regenerate tissue, naturally smoothing and tightening skin, softening wrinkles and improving skin texture. Also, with a series of treatments, and results can last from six to 12 months.
Combining platelet-rich fibrin and Sculptra dermal filler in one injection can achieve the most natural results for patients seeking a more youthful, lifting and vibrant appearance. The recommended number of treatments depends on the quality of your existing skin, tissue laxity, and bone loss. Three sessions are normally recommended to achieve the best outcome although many are happy with just one session. Results can last two to five years depending on the amount of existing skin damage and number of treatments required. With Facial sculpting in our Scottsdale location, you will see tighter skin, increased elasticity, and a natural-looking appearance without anyone ever noticing the change.
