Platelet Rich Plasma Facial or Platelet Rich Plasma Facelift Techniques


Dr. Chilukuri has been performing this procedure for more than a decade. He trained and perfected this technique with Dr. Des Fernandes, a plastic surgeon in South Africa, who first described the technique in 1998.

As gruesome as it sounds, this nonsurgical rejuvenation is actually quite straightforward. While at the office, Dr. Chilukuri or one of his highly trained team members will draw your own blood. The amount drawn is similar to the amount taken when you see your general physician for your routine check up. Your blood is then placed inside a centrifuge to separate out platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the other components of the blood. This plasma is used to rejuvenate your skin.

Why Platelets or Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?


Platelets contain a number of growth factors that can stimulate collagen synthesis, skin renewal, cell growth, and tissue regeneration. Depending on the goal, the PRP is either rubbed on skin (PRP Facial) that has been treated with microneedling or injected into those areas (PRP Facelift) where you want to lift the skin and decrease fine lines and wrinkles.

PRP Facials and PRP Facelifts can be used to prevent wrinkles as well as treating those fine lines that are already present. For PRP Facials, the PRP is applied on the skin and then the area is treated with microneedling. The micropen will drive the PRP into the skin. The depth of penetration, and the resulting placement of the PRP, will depend on Dr. Chilukuri’s recommendations after consulting with you.

For the PRP Facelift, hyaluronic-acid fillers and PRP are combined to roll back the appearance of wrinkles and rejuvenate the skin. As explained by Charles Runels, MD, who trademarked the name in 2010, the hyaluronic-acid filler acts as scaffolding on which the new PRP-induced tissue growth occurs. PRP can also be effective when used by itself. When used by itself, the procedure is completely natural since you are using your own blood to stimulate new collagen growth.

PRP can also be paired with other rejuvenation procedures incluign Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, Juvderm, Voluma, Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Silk, Sculptra, Belotero, and Radiesse. Dr. Chilukuri may also recommend combining PRP with laser treatments to allow fewer treatments and provide longer lasting results. Whether you wish to erase the “11s” between the brows, lift your fallen cheeks, or simply improve the overall texture and tone of your skin, these nonsurgical, noninvasive treatments are incredibly effective.

How Does The PRP Facial Work?


Blood is taken from the person’s arm.  This blood is then centrifuged so platelets can be isolated from the rest of the blood. The platelets are then activated with one of several substances.  Once activated, it is injected back into the person’s face using a very fine needle  to induce new growth of collagen, blood vessels and skin tissue. With this procedure, the skin is lifted away from the bone, to create not only new blood flow, but a skin volume. The face receives a sculpted look that appears to be more youthful.

What Are The Benefits of a PRP Facelift or Facial?
