PRP Facelift involves a combination of microneedling with a PRP facial, as well as PRP injections to areas of skin volume loss, wrinkles and sagging. Dermal fillers may be added to address any volume loss as well. At Glo and Sparkle we strive to deliver the best PRP facelifts Lubbock has to offer. PRP facelifts are a great way to rejuvenate your skin and your look without undergoing a full surgical facelift.
What is a PRP Facelift?
A PRP (platelet-rich plasma) facelift is a cosmetic treatment in which the patient's blood is used to combat the signs of aging. You may have read about the treatment in glamor magazines and referred to it as a vampire facelift. After drawing blood from your arm, a medical practitioner will use a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood (a machine that spins quickly to separate fluids of different densities). Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) will be used as a PRP/PRF facial and also injected under the skin in areas the need rejuvenation, sometimes alongside Juvederm or another hyaluronic acid filler.
What are the benefits of PRP Facelift?
Platelets in the PRP are the reason why a PRP facelift is so effective. Platelets release numerous growth factors, which stimulate cell turnover, new collagen formation, and elastin production, all of which contribute to skin that appears firmer and younger. This leads to a smoother skin, with clearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture and a younger look.
Beauty for All
The PRP Facelift has proved effective in decreasing wrinkles, plumping the face, fading acne scars, and brighten dull skin. It is safe for people of any age, although a vampire facelift is not recommended if you are on blood thinners, have skin cancer, or any blood-related medical disease, such as HIV or hepatitis C.
It is easy to confuse PRP facelifts and vampire facials, as they are comparable procedures. A PRP facelift combines Microneedling with PRP facials as well as PRP injections and sometimes hyaluronic acid fillers, and because PRF and fillers have immediate plumping and smoothing effects, you will see improvements instantly.
On the other hand, PRP facials incorporate microneedling, which involves the tiny skin punctures of small needles to create almost imperceptible punctures in the skin. This is believed to deliver PRP's effects deeper into the skin itself. For PRP facials, no PRP injections are performed. A PRP facelift is an excellent option for those who wish to tighten or contour drooping skin, and PRP facials can help enhance the texture of the skin and diminish the appearance of acne scars.
PRP Facelift Recovery & Results
There may be some redness on the face following a PRP facelift, but the process is non-invasive and our Lubbock PRP facelift patients should need minimal recovery time. Avoid touching your face in the hours following your treatment. If your doctor gives the go-ahead, you can use an ice pack or take Tylenol to reduce swelling and pain. You will see instant plumping effects from your injections, while the radiance and evenness from PRP will become apparent in two to four weeks. Results are not permanent and will normally last between one and two years.

You'll feel better thanks to the numbing cream applied topically. Lidocaine or nitrous oxide (laughing gas), on the other hand, can be added to the PRP/PRF in some circumstances to ease additional discomfort.
The chance of an allergic reaction to PRP/PRF is unlikely because it is derived from your own body. The injection site may become infected or scarred, and the patient may have redness and pain. Please contact your Glo and Sparkle Aesthetics and Med Spa provider if any concerns or questions arise after your treatment.
The cost of your PRP Facelift treatment will be discussed during your initial visit with your provider. Each patient's fee may vary depending on their treatment demands and additional treatments added to attain your desired outcome.
Most health insurance companies do not cover PRP Facelifts since they are deemed as a cosmetic therapy and aren't recognized by the FDA, even though they are medical injections.
