We all want to turn back the hands of time. Looking youthful is not always easy to achieve. The surgical methods can be expensive and aren’t right for everyone, while creams and powders aren’t simply powerful enough to achieve the results that many patients desire. Luckily, the exciting new PRP Facelift therapy is an excellent and effective alternative, and offered by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul M. Glat to the residents of Philadelphia and South Jersey.
A PRP Facelift is a non-surgical procedure that involves the injection of a gel-like substance made from the platelet rich plasma that is derived from your own blood. This treatment can reduce wrinkles and rejuvenate the face.
There are many benefits to having a PRP Facelift. These include:
The entire procedure only takes 30 to 40 minutes. First, Dr. Glat will draw your blood and extract the platelets. These are mixed with natural fillers and reinjected into the skin. You will begin seeing results right away, but it may take a couple of weeks for the filler to settle into its final position. The results vary from patient to patient, but it generally helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles and gives skin a healthy glow.

This is a non-surgical procedure and no anesthesia is necessary. You may feel some mild pain at the injection site and possibly a bit of redness. This should fade within a day or two.
