Fine lines and wrinkles are something most people, both men and women, have to deal with at some point in their lives. Regardless of whether you are struggling to hide crow’s feet or have lines that lower your self-confidence, we have a procedure that can help. When you choose a PRP facelift, you are receiving a less invasive non-surgical procedure that uses the patient’s own blood to eliminate wrinkles and fine lines.
When you contact us to schedule a PRP facelift, you will quickly discover it is a unique procedure. It relies on your body’s natural healing abilities to help restore your face’s youthful look. To complete this procedure, our doctor will remove a small amount of blood from your arm, process the blood and inject it into your face. This typically takes less than an hour and is a much more affordable option than many other cosmetic procedures. Once complete, you will have a younger looking, attractive face without the need for chemicals or surgery.
With a traditional facelift, it often takes several months to fully recover. However, when you choose us for your PRP facelift, you won’t need to wait that long to see the final results. You also don’t have to worry about artificial fillers being injected into your skin. As a result, our methods are more pleasant and affordable than the others that are available.
When you work with our most trusted face lift surgeon to get a facelift, you will undergo a non-surgical procedure designed to use the body’s own healing to tighten your face.
Dr. Cohen, our top face lift surgeon in Chicago, Glenview and Lincoln Park, extracts blood from the arm and puts it through processing designed to remove many of the components of the blood, leaving behind platelet-rich plasma, or PRP. This remaining fluid is highly concentrated with platelets, which are your body’s natural way to repair damaged tissue.
After the extraction of the PRP, our most trusted face lift surgeon will strategically inject it into certain areas of your face. This allows the PRP to perform its job of healing the skin. Dr. Cohen determines which areas require repair to help heal and plump the skin for a more youthful look.
Once the procedure is complete, the fine lines and wrinkles will reduce or even disappear entirely, giving you back a younger appearance.
The primary difference between the two types is a PRP facelift is classified as a non-surgical procedure and is typically completed within an hour. The recovery time is incredibly short and it can have a major impact on the look of your lips, eyes and overall face. When you get this procedure done in Chicago, Glenview or Lincoln Park, you can go back to your daily life with no restrictions and without concern over your appearance.
Those who undergo a traditional facelift will go through a surgical procedure designed to permanently alter the face. Patients can choose a brow lift or midface lift, which is a repositioning and reshaping of the eyebrows, cheeks, and eyelids to create the desired look. This is ideal for those who want more control over the end result, which isn’t possible with injection therapies.
Those who have undergone the PRP facelift have nicknamed it the “lunchtime lift” because of the short amount of recovery time. While you may experience redness immediately following treatment, this disappears within a few hours. However, bruising and redness may last up to two to three days following the procedure. The good news is there are no restrictions on what you can and can’t do, which means you can return to your normal activities immediately.
Dr. Cohen offers both the PRP facelift and the PRP facial to patients in the Chicago, Glenview and Lincoln Park areas. During the course of the PRP facelift, the PRP fluid is injected directly into the target area. However, with a PRP facial, the PRP fluid isn’t fully injected. Instead, it is applied to the area using a process called micro needling using a Dermapen. This can stimulate the skin and make it look healthier, but the overall effect isn’t as significant.
You can expect your PRP facelift to take less than an hour of your time. The extraction and processing of your blood takes approximately 20 minutes, and the application of the treatment takes another 30 minutes. This makes it an excellent alternative to a traditional facelift for many Chicago, Glenview and Lincoln Park patients.
Because it is a natural process, the PRP will take some time to work and produce the effects you’re looking for. Most people see changes within three to four weeks of their treatment.
It typically takes about three sessions to see the optimal results, spread out at one session each month.
When you turn to our top face lift surgeon in Chicago, Glenview and Lincoln Park, you can expect the results of your PRP treatment to last for at least 12 months. Dr. Cohen does recommend patients return every six months to refresh the treatment and keep the results looking their best. This provides optimal growth and healing over the years.
Choosing to get a facelift in Chicago or Glenview can help transform your entire face and keep you looking younger for longer. When you visit our office, we will discuss your expectations of your procedure, so we can make our recommendation. If you choose a PRP facelift, you will find you get quality results without the long-term recovery and discomfort that can come with surgical procedures. You will be back to work in no time.
