PRP Facelift with Voluma XC

The PRP Facelift is a procedure that combines HA Dermal Fillers (such as Voluma, Juvederm or Restylane) with your own amazing growth factors derived from your blood to create a youthful outcome. There are two parts to this procedure. The first part utilizes dermal fillers to begin sculpting specific areas of the face. These fillers act like a sponge that hold water in the face providing a basic shape. This initial injection of filler is the precursor to the ultimate desired form. The second is the polishing and refining step, the utilization of your body’s own natural healing process. A sample of your blood is obtained with a simple blood draw. Using a centrifuge, the growth factors in platelet rich plasma (PRP) are extracted from that blood sample and injected into specific areas of the face.

How about the PRP Facial?

The PRP Facial is not the same as the Face Lift. This procedure does not involve using dermal fillers, but rather using a Micropen or Fractora RF device to created micro channels in the skin and the topically infusing your own growth factors to signal healing. This procedure addresses fine lines and wrinkles, and improves tone and texture of the skin. The skin is numbed with a topical anesthetic for about 30 minutes. Your own blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge and then the PRP is infused into your skin.
