When it comes to anti-ageing and skin rejuvenation treatments there is now such a wide choice that it can become confusing to know which one is the right one for you. Of course, injectable treatments like dermal fillers, and skin peels, can offer great results, but at Elate Health we think it’s important to tailor the right treatment plan to the right patient; and we realise that what works for one person might not be right for the other. Sometimes it’s the lesser known treatments that can offer the best results, and the PRP facelift is certainly now making a name for itself as the go-to skin rejuvenation treatment for men and women looking to give their skin a makeover, and improve its overall laxity.
PRP (known officially as Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy) has been used for many years as a way to treat sports injuries holistically, but in the last decade we’re seen great results using this form of treatment as an aesthetic solution too. Commonly referred to in the press as the Vampire Facelift, PRP uses the patient’s own blood to help renew the quality of the skin and improve the production of collagen. Although it sounds a little gruesome, it’s actually a non-surgical anti-ageing solution, meaning there’s no scalpels needed, and you won’t be required to stay in hospital.
Popular with celebrities worldwide – Kim Kardashian even tweeted photographs of herself during the treatment! –becoming increasingly sought after here in the UK, the PRP facelift is a reliable and safe way of restoring a youthful glow and turning back the hands of time. From easing lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, to giving the face a lifted appearance, the PRP facelift is a great non-surgical cosmetic treatment for people hoping to look naturally radiant. Although the PRP facelift isn’t classed as a ‘permanent’ solution to facial skin laxity (only surgical facelifts can last for 10 years plus) it does offer around 12-18 months of younger-looking skin. Not bad for a treatment that requires no surgery, no recovery time and costs less than a quarter of surgical alternatives, right?
So what can the PRP facelift offer you over injectable treatments like muscle relaxing injections and volumisers? In truth, the PRP facelift can be used in conjunction with injectables or as a sole treatment; a consultation with one of the Elate Health team will be the best way to find out whether the PRP facelift would be beneficial alongside other treatments. Unlike anti-ageing injectables, the PRP facelift uses the body’s natural resources to plump and firm skin, leaving you with a natural glow and a youthful complexion. Plasma and platelets are extracted from the patient’s blood via a small sample, and combined with natural ingredients (like omega 3) before being injected back into the skin, creating a naturally revitalised result.
PRP facelifts promote better blood circulation to the facial tissue and boost the production of collagen. They also provide patients with a safe way to achieve healthy, lifted-looking skin, because it is an all natural solution. PRP facelifts are now becoming one of the most popular treatments at Elate Health, because this type of skin rejuvenation solution combines the firming and lifting results of other cosmetic treatments with a 100 per cent natural makeup.
Patients are left with great looking skin and can feel safe and assured of natural results. Your family and friends won’t be asking you WHAT you’ve ‘had done’ but telling you how fabulous and healthy you look; and there’s no better feeling than that!
