As we get older, we lose elasticity in our skin. In our 40s and 50s, our collagen production slows, and our skin loses elastin. This may result in our cheeks appearing hollow, our eyes appearing sunken, and vertical lines around our mouths.

Women may experience thinning hair, bald patches and receding hairlines. All of these symptoms are a result of lost fat and deteriorating tissue. To address this, there are a number of surgical procedures that can be done. However, Stem-U-Lift is a facial rejuvenation technique that does not use surgery or scalpels at any stage.

Research has shown that our own platelets have the power to heal tissue in all parts of the body. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) are compounds created naturally from the body. They are formulated by drawing out venous blood. These compounds have the natural ability to revitalize the skin on a cellular level.

Stem-U-Lift facial rejuvenation is the procedure by which PRP or PRF are injected to stimulate the production of collagen and the regeneration of tissue. The treatment helps reverse the effects of aging, revitalize skin, and even repair damaged skin.

How It Works

PRP or PRF is created by extracting platelets from your own blood and then having them spin in a centrifuge. Blood plasma, white blood cells, red blood cells, and other growth properties bond together as they spin, forming the PRP or PRF. The procedure used to extract the platelets is quick and painless.

PRP and PRF have previously been used in dentistry, orthopedic medicine, and reconstructive surgery with success. It has only recently been used in cosmetic surgery as well. Under the Stem-U-Lift technique, the PRP or PRF is then injected into specific areas of the face on its own or with a filler.

This promotes collagen growth and naturally soothes and tightens the skin. It also helps to improve collagen production when injected in the skin. Since Stem-U-Lift Facial Rejuvenation uses PRP or PRF, which is harvested from the patient’s own body, there is little risk of injury or allergy.

Results

Since PRP and PRF treatments are done with your own unique blood structure, results can vary from person to person. Mild swelling and bruising are normal for 1-3 days after the procedure.

The results should be fully visible in three to four weeks after the procedure. For the best results, it is recommended that the patient does one to six sessions with a gap of one to two months between them.

Regenerative science has made great strides in innovating ways to tackle aging and damaged skin. Although Botox and dermal fillers are viable non-surgical alternatives, the Stem-U-Lift Facial Rejuvenation uses the body’s own capabilities to heal and regenerate.
