What is PRP?
“Platelet Rich Plasma” is a growth factor in your blood that can stimulate collagen synthesis, skin renewal, cell growth, and tissue regeneration. It is a naturally occurring healing process in our bodies used to heal wounds, cuts, etc. The process of taking blood from a patient, isolating the platelet rich plasma and injecting it back into an area where the body needs to heal has been used for many years. In times past it’s been used in medical fields such as urology, ophthalmology, dentistry, neurosurgery, orthopedics and sports medicine. Due to the success of using PRP in medicine, it has been developed into a cosmetic procedure.
What is a PRP Facelift?
PRP facelifts are said to plump skin, fill out fine lines and wrinkles, and give an overall more radiant appearance. It is a cosmetic treatment comprised of drawing a small amount of your own blood. Then your blood is placed it in a centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich plasma. Afterwards its injected back into the area of your skin that needs to be repaired and rejuvenated. The platelets contain a high amount of growth factors. This means it works to naturally heal your damaged or aged skin by activating nearby cells to reproduce and stimulate repair. The result is increased volume and beautifully rejuvenated skin.
Can I Use PRP with Other Fillers?
Combining dermal fillers like Voluma®, Juvederm® and Radiesse® with PRP can enhance the effect of the filler. This happens because of it stimulating the tissue and collagen production around where the filler was injected in your face.
Are There Any Side Effects of a PRP Facial?
Since the PRP facelift uses natural resources from your own body, there are no known side effects. However, patients may experience slight bruising, redness, swelling or itching after actual injection, which should subside within a day or two. All possible risks and side effects will be discussed with you by Mr. Garberich during your consultation.

Patients who get a PRP facelift once a month for 3 months report younger-looking, rejuvenated skin for the next 6 months to a year.
