PRP & The Liquid Facelift

Can you imagine a procedure that uses your own natural stem cells and growth factors to stimulate collagen, restore your youthful glow and correct pigmented age and sundamage? 

The Liquid Facelift can bring back this youthful color and volume. The treatment is similar to the Vampire Faceift® and takes place in our spa, lasts about 30-60  minutes.  There is no down time  or a single day or redness if you choose the microneedling combo treatment and most clients go right back to work and other normal daily routines.

The Stem Cells In Your Blood

Scientists have known for years that unipotent stem cells lie dormant in the skin and provide the building blocks for healing when you sustain a burn or cut. Until recently, there was no convenient way to stimulate those stem cells to grow new tissue. By utilizing the growth factors found in the blood (specifically the platelets), our Medical Director and Master Injectors can activate the unipotent stem cells already in the skin and tell those cells to grow new, younger-appearing skin.

During the process of the Liquid Facelift procedure, stem cell science is used to tell the body to grow new younger skin. Unipotent stem cells, which grow only one specific tissue, and can be found in every part of the body. For example, unipotent stem cells in the liver grow new liver tissue. Unipotent stem cells in the skin grow new skin. Thus, the Liquid Facelift procedure takes the cosmetic rejuvenation process to a higher level by working in harmony with your body.

How it Works
A small amount of blood will be drawn from your arm. Your platelets are isolated from other blood components and they are activated by exposing them to calcium chloride. This mixture forms a rejuvenating elixir (made by your own platelets) called PRFM- platelet-rich fibrin matrix. This gel is then injected back into multiple areas of the face in the specific areas to induce growth of new collagen, skin tissue, and blood vessels around each injection site. It also can be placed on top of the skin and pushed into the dermis using patented microneedling techniques.

Collectively, this activity lifts the skin away from the bone, creates skin volume and new blood flow, thereby sculpting the face and creating a younger complexion for a more youthful and healthy appearance. 

Glowing Results!
When the growth factors activate the unipotent stem cells of the skin, then the unipotent stem cells generate new skin, new blood flow, and new collagen... all of this means actual new tissue! You'll see and feel more volume as well as truly rejuvenated skin! 

The most common word that people use around the third week is "Glowing" because their friends see a younger more "glowing" complexion from the neovascularization (new blood flow from the new blood vessels that grow from the unipotent stem cells). The best way to visualize this is to imagine what you see when a young child has been playing outside in the sun—that rosy, glowing, complexion.

What to Expect

 
  • You'll be lying on one of Vitality's extra wide, reclining medical beds.
  • Vitality's staff will draw a small amount of blood and filter out your natural autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
  • Your PRP activated, PRFM will be formed and injected back into your skin in a variety of locations on your face.

  • You may have a few red spots for about an hour or 24-48 hours for microneedling.
  • As soon as the treatment is finished, you can go back to regular daily activities.


You'll notice a slight plumping or tightening or volumizing effect for a day or two. This is due to the PRFM being injected into the skin. The effect will dissipate and then your wrinkles will start to soften and disappear as collagen and tissue regenerate over the next 30 days.

The entire procedure takes less than an hour. It is possible to achieve your desired results after just one visit, but only you and your doctor can determine the best approach for treatment. The Liquid Facelift is safe and reliable and no adverse reactions have been reported to date. There is no down time and most clients go right back to work and other normal daily routines.

Frequently Asked Questions About the Liquid Facelift

Are the injections painful?

The needles used for PRFM injections are only minimally larger than acupuncture needles, and most clients do not require any form of pain relief during the treatment. Although there may be mild discomfort with there are ways to minimize any pain including ice packs and topical anesthesia. 

Is it dangerous?
No. The Liquid Facelift is safe and reliable, and no adverse reactions have been reported to date. However, you may experience some common reactions at the injection site: mild irritation, swelling, bruising, edema, itching, discoloration or tenderness. These are temporary conditions and typically resolve themselves within a few days. These temporary symptoms are the same symptoms are basically the same as any you might experience with other cosmetic injections. 

Will anyone know?
We've all seen the actresses and actors who take it too far and end up with gigantic lips and unnatural looking facial structures. Our goal is to have everyone notice and no one to be able to tell.   

Is there any pre-treatment?
Do not  take any medications with aspirin, ibuprofen and/or Vitamin E/fish oil in them for 1 week prior to treatment. This will decrease bruising at the injection site.

Is there any post treatment?
You will need to keep your head up for 4 hours after treatment, but that is it.

How many syringes will I need?
We achieve our best results with multiple syringes. Full correction is not possible when using just one syringe on multiple facial areas. Typically one syringe per on one facial area. The results will not only look better but will also last longer, making patients happier with the treatment and more likely to return to your practice.

How long before I notice the results? How long does it last?

You'll notice a slight plumping or tightening or volumizing effect for a few days just like you would with other fillers. This is due to the PRFM being injected into the skin. The effect will dissipate and then your wrinkles will start to soften and disappear as collagen and tissue regenerate over the next 30 days. This improvement continues for approximately 12 weeks and then lasts at least 15 months.

HOW MUCH does a Liquid Facelift cost?
First it is important to understand that PRFM elixir is administered in syringes. The number of syringes varies from client to client depending on age, depth of wrinkles and the client's goal. Typically 4ml to 8 ml is plenty. 4ml is $1,000 and 8ml is $1,850.
