At Radiance Aesthetics & Wellness of NYC we use platelet rich plasma (PRP Facial) to rejuvenate your skin. This PRP Facelift procedure is performed by a certified medical professional in a clinical setting. Resent studies conducted internationally recognize PRP Facelift therapy as one of the promising treatment modality for scar reduction, collagen restoration and growth. PRP is considered a safe a natural treatment since it utilizes the platelets from your own body and there is minimal chance of developing an allergic reaction.
What is PRP Facial (Facelift)?
PRP Facial is a facelift procedure performed to rejuvenate your skin in a natural and holistic way. The facial uses platelet rich plasma obtained from your own blood and delivered to your skin by injections or microneedling facial therapy. This facelift procedure helps to gradually improve the tone, color and texture of your skin.
How does PRP Facial work?
PRP- Platelet Rich Plasma is a concentrated autologous preparation of platelets in a small volume of plasma, containing approximately 3-5 times the amount of platelets and associated growth factors then found in the regular blood. Platelets are active components of natural healing process.
When activated platelets release growth factors and these molecules are responsible in activating and regulating the healing process in our body. Platelets release components such as Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF), Platelet Derived Growth Factor (PDGF), and Transforming Growth Factor (TGF) among other bioactive components.

The facial activates platelets that cause inflammation, angiogenesis, cell proliferation and tissue regenerative process.
Unlike most procedures, the Facelift (R) offers a way of both restoring shape, and improving tone and texture, as well as literally rejuvenating new and younger tissue!
For the last 15-20 years PRP therapy has been used effectively as a medical treatment in orthopedic injuries, neurosurgery, plastic and cosmetic surgery among others. Resent studies conducted internationally recognize PRP therapy as one of the promising treatment modality for scar reduction, collagen restoration and growth.
How Is PRP Facial Procedure Performed?
At the Radiance Aesthetics & Wellness the PRP Facial procedure (PRP facelift) is performed by a certified medical professional in a clinical setting.
- A blood sample from your body is obtained (similar to a regular blood test procedure), and prepared by spinning it in a special centrifuge machine. The specimen obtained is a liquid with the highly concentrated platelet rich plasma, which contains many growths factors.
- Your skin is prepared with a special microneedling device, and the platelet rich liquid is injected into your skin under local anesthesia.
After the PRP facial procedure you would be able to return home or work immediately. Anesthetic medication used to numb the skin is not sedating, and you will be able to drive or use machinery safely.
Who Could Be Treated With A PRP Facial?
PRP facelift is considered a safe a natural treatment since it utilizes the platelets from your own body and there is minimal chance of developing an allergic reaction. PRP is considered effective for adults of all ages, all Fitxpatrick skin types and all people of different ethnic diversity. It is a great modality to achieve skin rejuvenation and tightening and facelift without any downtime or pain.
PRP facelift is contraindicated for people with a history of diabetes, blood-clotting disorder, active infection of the skin, a history of shingles, or those taking immunosuppressant and blood-thinning medications.
How Long Does The PRP Facelift Procedure Take?
The PRP facial procedure or PRP facelift is performed within 20-30 minutes. We advise to plan to spend 60-90 minutes in our office so we could apply numbing cream, collect and process your blood for the facelift procedure.
Is PRP Facial Procedure Painful?
Absolutely not! During the facial procedure you would have a numbing cream applied to the skin area to be treated. After application of PRP liquid, microneedling device is carefully glided along the skin. After the PRP facelift treatment you might experience a mild inflammatory response and may have mild redness and bruising, which will subside in several days.
How Many Facial Treatments Will I Need?
This facelift procedure needs to be performed several times (we recommend at least 3 procedures), every three to four weeks to be effective. PRP facelift treatments can help create new collagen in your skin, diminish wrinkles and acne scars, minimize pore size, and rejuvenate your skin.
The results of this facial PRP procedure might last one to two years or longer. We recommend maintaining your skin results and performing follow up treatments every 12-24 months as needed.
