What Is a PRP Facelift?
A PRP facelift is a non-surgical, minimally invasive facial rejuvenation treatment option. With the help of PRP, this treatment encourages your body’s natural healing processes to help create a refreshed appearance.
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a powerful golden substance that is obtained from your own body via a blood sample. It is obtained by spinning blood using special equipment to separate the PRP from other substances.

What To Expect From Synergy Medical's PRP Facelift Therapy
You will meet with our aesthetic nurse practitioner who will review your medical history, medications and allergies, previous procedures or treatments, and goals. Once they have determined that you would be a candidate for treatment, pre-treatment instructions will be given. NSAIDs such as Advil, ibuprofen, or aspirin are to be discontinued 7-10 days prior to the procedure. It is also important to hydrate prior to the procedure.
On the day of treatment, you will want to arrive with a clean face. Consent forms will be reviewed and before photos will be taken to put in your file. A small amount of blood is drawn from a vein in your arm and spun in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets and growth factors. The area is cleaned and topical lidocaine applied. A small flexible cannula is used to inject the PRP into the tear troughs, cheeks, jowl, and chin area. By using the cannula, there is less discomfort and less bruising than using a traditional needle. The entire process typically takes around 45 minutes. Many times, the remaining PRP therapy near me can be used with radiofrequency microneedling with the Morpheus8 to enhance the PRP facelift treatment.
After your PRP facelift, you will notice some swelling which will diminish in 24 to 48 hours. It is important to continue abstaining from the use of NSAIDs or aspirin for 4-6 weeks after your PRP facelift. Over time, the PRP releases growth factors which stimulate your own natural collagen and provide a youthful appearance. Results normally last 12 months.

Some Of Our Success Stories
This was the best and most professional medical experience I have had in a long time. Melina, Dr. Lewis and staff are exceptional. I would recommend them any time.
I was bone on bone in my left knee and was told that I needed a knee replacement about 5 years ago. I didn’t want to have surgery at my age so I decided to try stem cell therapy. It’s been almost 3 months since my treatment and I feel like a new man. No more pain and I can finally play tennis again. Thank you to all at synergy for treating me like family and saving my knee. I am forever grateful. If you are thinking about trying stem cells, do it.
I spent 10 years with pain in my back. I tried physical therapy, shots, and thought that I just had to live with it. I went to a seminar about stem cells figured I would look into it since I tried everything else. My first visit was with the nurse practitioner who reviewed my MRI and said that I would be able to do stem cells in my low back. I had my shots a week later by the pain management doctor and it’s been 2 and a half months and I’m happy to say that I am about 80% better. I am ecstatic that I decided to give stem cells a try. I recommend synergy to everyone I know.
My experience with Synergy Medical was outstanding. In less then two months I went from barely being able to walk to a no pain environment.
The staff was very professional, courteous and knowledgeable.
All sessions were conducted on time, in a comfortable atmosphere, catered to my individual needs for a full recovery.
Common Questions About A PRP Facelift
The PRP facelift process begins with harvesting PRP. Obtaining PRP is relatively simple, and it begins with a traditional blood draw. This sample is spun in a special centrifuge to isolate the unique plasma for treatment. The PRP is then used as a filler to help rejuvenate your appearance.
While the length of treatment will vary for you and your goals, a session typically requires an hour or less. There is no set downtime associated with a procedure, and you should be able to return to your normal daily activities. However, it is important to understand you may experience so minor swelling or bruising in the treatment area.
It is important to have realistic goals and expectations for treatment. Results will vary for each person, and it is important to remember they may not be as dramatic as those created with a surgical or more invasive procedure. However, many people begin to enjoy results shortly after treatment, and the results gradually improve as the PRP stimulates growth. A series of treatments may help you achieve and maintain the best results.
The PRP facelift is designed to be safe and effective for nearly all skin tones and types. It can be a good alternative for people who are leery of using foreign substances for treatment as PRP is obtained from a sample of your own blood. However, a consultation with our team in Bradenton can help ensure this is the best treatment option for you and your goals.
