Did you know that a procedure that has long been used to treat and heal sports injuries has become an increasingly popular way for many men and women to regain a youthful look and improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars and sun damage? Innovations Stem Cell offers patients this fantastic treatment and the chance to get great skin with the PRP face-lift.

What Is This Magical Treatment?

The PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, face-lift is widely known as the "vampire face-lift," but don't worry - it's not at all scary. In fact, it's pretty awesome. Here are a few reasons why PRP is increasing in popularity as a skin-rejuvenating cosmetic treatment and why people are seeking out this procedure:

  • It's all natural.
  • It reduces inflammation and redness.
  • It works quickly.
  • It does not require significant recovery time.
  • It does not require anesthesia.
  • It doesn't put patients at risk of rejection, adverse reaction or complications.

How Does PRP Work?

During the PRP procedure, blood is taken from the patient, spun in a centrifuge to extract the plasma, and then the plasma (PRP) is injected back into the body. For joint and musculoskeletal injuries, the PRP is injected into the injured area. During the PRP face-lift, the PRP is processed and injected into the face using a tiny needle.

This is when PRP goes to work to heal damaged skin. PRP is full of powerful proteins known as growth factors that signal the body to send blood, oxygen and nutrients to start repairing skin damaged by the aging process, environmental factors, acne and injury. These growth factors also signal stem cells in the skin to wake up and start regenerating skin cells.

Does It Work?

Yes! Patients who choose the PRP report reduced acne scarring; improved skin quality, tone and texture; and smoothing of lines and wrinkles. By combining the power of PRP and micro needling, you get additional benefits, too, because micro needling kicks off the body's natural healing response and increases collagen production. When collagen kicks up, your skin is pulled tighter, giving you even better results.
