PRP Facelift Cost & Other FAQ’s
What Exactly is a PRP Facelift?
One of the very first questions we get here at Aesthetica Med Spa in Austin is about the how a PRP Facelift procedure works. It’s actually a very simple process and is becoming increasingly popular in the Austin area. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Sneed, begins by drawing blood from your arm. He then spins the blood to separate out the plasma. Blood plasma contains platelets, which are proteins and growth factors that stimulate collagen production, among other bodily functions. Collagen, in turn, is the protein that makes our skin look and feel supple, elastic and youthful.
What is the Cost of PRP Facelift Procedures?
The average cost of an individual PRP Facelift procedure ranges from close to $1000 and up to $2000, depending on a number of factors. One important factor is the amount of work that needs to be done. A consultation with Dr. Sneed will be needed in order to determine the exact cost of your PRP Facelift cost and can usually be determined on your first visit with Aesthetica Med Spa.
Is a PRP Facelift Better Than Traditional Facelift Surgery?
A PRP Facelift could be a good option for you if you were considering a traditional facelift surgery. The PRP Facelift promotes collagen growth underneath the skin and makes a client’s face less saggy and smooths wrinkles. A traditional facelift may be required for those individuals needing more extensive corrective procedures.
Can I Go to Work Right After a PRP Facelift Procedure?
This is a large reason why the PRP Facelift is so popular. The procedure usually takes less than an hour and clients can go home or go to work immediately when finished.
How Long Do Results last?
Each PRP Facelift at our Austin practice is usually going to last for about 9 to 24 months. Similar to many other routine activities in your daily life, cosmetic procedures require maintenance ongoing treatments to restore youth.
Is the PRP Facelift Safe?
Although the name is a little frightening, the procedure is a very safe and very effective way to lift the skin and smooth wrinkles without side effects.
Are There Side Effects with a PRP Facelift?
Some of the most common side effects associated with any facial filler injections are:
- Mild irritation & itching (sensitivity of your skin will determine this)
- Mild swelling or edema
- Bruising may occur because of the reaction your skin has to the physical injection.
With the PRP Facelift, there is no chance of allergic reaction, because no chemicals or toxins are used in the treatment.
