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.
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.
